Gemini and Scorpio: Are They Good for Each Other?


A vast library with vaulted ceilings, wood-paneled walls, and stone floor. Bookcases stretch three floors and rolling ladders move between them. Couches line the walls and those who step into this are asked to silence their phones and keep conversation to a minimum. There are no windows here, as natural light could stain the books, penetrating the covers and fading the ink. In the center of the massive space, sits a locked room with four glass walls. This room, the archive, houses the oldest books, those bound in leather and written by hand in calligraphy. Some of these books date back hundreds of years, and to enter the room, a key is needed and a librarian must accompany you.

The librarian who runs this place has a wealth of knowledge about every book in the space, regardless of subject, genre, or category. They ask questions, understanding even should they live a full life, they will never have all the answers. But it doesn’t stop them from asking. There is one book, however, that stumps this librarian. This book sits in a glass case in the center of the glass room. This book looks like any other, except it’s locked by an archaic chain no archaeologist has been able to open. Yet day in and day out, the librarian visits this book, trying to figure out what secrets lie inside. It seems pointless, and they seem obsessed, but they don’t care. They crave answers and the more mysterious something is, the more devoted they become to learning how to crack the code.

Then one day, seemingly by a miracle, the lock on this book breaks. Like the snap of fingers, the chain slides off the cover, an invitation for the librarian to open the cover and see what’s inside. Gemini–you’re the librarian, eager for an answer. And Scorpio? Well, you’re the valuable book of course, keeping your secrets locked away until the day you finally decide, screw it. I guess I’ll let you in. So what does Gemini find? And what do you have to say Scorpio? Will it lead to friendship? Love? Or will the librarian slam this book shut and wish they never asked to see what you Scorpio are keeping locked inside? Let’s find out.

Gemini Zodiac Symbol


As a mutable air sign ruled by the planet of Mercury, like the librarian in our story, you Gemini are the seeker of knowledge. You ask questions to learn about the world about you, but also because you crave understanding.

Communication is the way you connect with the world around you. As a mutable sign, you’re adaptable, happy to go with the flow, and mutate your mood to match your external circumstances.

You’re in the third house of sharing, intellect, communication, and understanding. If you’re not already in the process of learning new things, you’re brainstorming fresh ideas to inspire you.

A natural extrovert, you’re the go-getter of your group of friends, the person who comes up with ideas, and someone who can thrive in a group or one on one.

Your friends probably joke that when you talk to animals, they talk back. You could get anyone or anything to open up. But you also like a challenge. So when you meet someone who is closed off, you won’t back away and let it go, but pursue them with interest, optimism, and curiosity.

The more quiet someone is, the more secrets they have, and because you’re an open book, you’ll search to encourage others to lift their own covers and reveal the stories written on their pages.

Connection is the way you thrive in life and it’s something you search for everywhere you go.

Scorpio Zodiac Symbol


I know, I know, you’re probably thinking: ‘Why the hell did you describe me as an ancient, dusty old book? Are you calling me old?!’ Calm down, Scorpio, that’s the water sign in you, getting emotional. And because I know better than to call a Scorpio emotional to their face, I’m saying it here, hidden behind my computer.

Your symbol is the Scorpion after all, and I want to keep as much distance away from your stinger, thank you very much. Okay, so back to the book.

Listen, it’s a compliment. You’re not old, Scorpio–you’re wise. And you’re locked up because you know more than anyone that you like to keep your cards close and your secrets even closer.

You don’t like being called emotional because you perceive vulnerability as a weakness, yet as a water sign, you’re incredibly in tune with your emotions, making you sensitive to the vibes around you. You’re far from a pushover, though.

Often confused as a fire sign because of your intensity and passion, you’re stubborn and stand by what you believe, and that’s because you’re a fixed sign, my friend, someone who sticks to their guns regardless of the perceptions of other people.

You’re incredibly private and guarded, and it may take you a while to open up to people, but once you do, you’re loyal, dedicated, and pursue a genuine connection with everyone you determine is worthy of your time.

Gemini and Scorpio in Friendship

So what happens when the chatterbox Gemini of the Zodiac befriends the close lipped Scorpio? This is an eccentric connection, to say the least. Every sign has a ruling planet which helps shape a part of the individual’s personality. Gemini, your ruling planet is Mercury, which represents communication, and Scorpio, your ruling planets are Pluto and Mars, which represent regeneration and passion, respectively. When two planets are exactly five signs apart, as is the case here, it forms an aspect called a quincunx, a balance that has the potential to create some interesting dynamics.

You two operate so differently in your approaches to life, that you won’t really understand how the other has survived this far. You have no shared elements or traits: Gemini is a mutable air sign, and Scorpio is a fixed water sign. You, Gemini are adaptable and lofty, while you, Scorpio are stubborn and intuitive. Where Gemini communicates and forms connections, Scorpio sits back and studies the room, considering their options before venturing into conversation. Still, even though you have separate approaches to life, there’s an underlying spark that will catch both of your interest and make you wonder if this is a story worth exploring.

Friend Date - Calendar

Friend Date: Mani/Pedi or Streaking on the Beach at Midnight?

Gemini, you’re all about the adventure. The lure of the conversation, the exciting concert, a new restaurant, anything to perk your interest and add to the conversation. You prefer being around people, out in the world, asking questions, having fresh conversations with old friends, and meeting strangers and making them friends.

Scorpio, although you’re a fixed sign who enjoys routine, the water in you means that you’re also flexible. And just because you’re private, doesn’t mean that you’re a total introvert. You like getting out in the world, you just have a tendency to stay quiet and observe from a distance instead of talking your way through life. You will probably find Gemini’s energy overwhelming, but Gemini, you’ll find Scorpio’s silence intriguing, and it will make you want to find out what secrets they’re hiding.

Friend-Fection Icon

Friend-Fection: Keep It on the Dl or Text ‘Love Ya Biatch?’

Gemini, you’re intrigued by Scorpio’s emotional intelligence and the way they’re able to connect with people in a deep way. It’s the way you desire to interact with people. Connecting with others is everything to you, but connecting with Scorpio, well that will be a little more difficult.

Scorpio, you’re much more guarded than Gemini, and while you enjoy connecting with people, you don’t have time for small talk. You cut straight through to the heart of the issue, and although it may take you a while to be vulnerable with people, if someone is capable of offering you genuine honesty–and you’re strong enough intuition will allow you to tell–you’re more likely to open up.

And fortunately, Gemini, even though you enjoy small talk, everything you say comes from the heart. Scorpio will recognize this about you and although it may take a while, if you’re persistent, Gemini, they’ll eventually let their guard down. And then there will be nothing stopping the depth of your conversations.

Dating Advice Icon

Dating Advice: Send His Name or Send His Social?

You’re very different when dating comes into the picture. Scorpio, you fall fast and hard, but like to pretend that’s not the case.

Gemini, you’re one of the most non-committal signs in the Zodiac, so dating for you is more fun. You’re more likely to have a friend-with-benefits situation until you find someone you really sense a spark with. Either way, you Gemini, will tell all your friends about your dating experiences just for the hell of it, and if you do have feelings, that’s when you usually stay quiet, a rarity for you, and that’s because you’re unaccustomed to the experience and don’t want to jinx it.

Meanwhile, Scorpio, you’re the opposite. You won’t tell any of your friends about the early days with your partner, and you’ll only open up after it becomes official, but even then, you’re particular about which friends you’ll tell the intimate aspects of your life with. Gemini may be that friend, but only after you two reach that close place where you’ve lowered your guard, Scorpio.

Gemini and Scorpio in Love

Remember that dusty old book from the beginning? Well, you might think that you’re faster to reveal your secrets as friends, Scorpio, but that’s actually not the case. You’ll never admit it, but you keep a pair of rose-colored glasses in your back pocket and you lead with your heart over your head.

Gemini, you’re the opposite. Although you care for people, you’re much more analytical than your Scorpio counterpart, but this is where the trouble lies. As friends, Gemini, you enjoy the mystery of Scorpio, the tidbits of their personality revealed little by little. As a couple? Oyy. I already have a headache thinking about it.

First Date Icon

The First Date: Roses or KFC?

Like most first dates, you’re going to see the best in each other. It’s going to be fun. You’re both engaging people.

Gemini, you’re flexible, so you’ll have no problem doing something more low-key, which Scorpio will prefer. Gemini will carry the conversation,

Scorpio will have a mysterious air that will amp up the sexual tension. And because you both are in tune with your sexuality, it’s likely that you may skip dinner after drinks and head back home.

Love Language Icon

Love Language Do’s and Don’ts: A Dealbreaker?

Isn’t there where all the problems lie? You two have such drastically different communication styles, if you even get to the stage of actual commitment–eeek.

Gemini, you hate feeling smothered in a partnership. You need your freedom outside of your relationship, and well, Scorpio likes having you around. They’re more possessive than you, and more emotional–aka dramatic, whereas you Gemini, prefer to discuss your way out of problems, which will turn the more sensitive Scorpio off.

Scorpio, you need quality time with your partners, and while Gemini can give that to you, they’ll want more analytical conversations where you’ll speak from your heart. You’ll find Gemini’s perspectives superficial, while you Gemini, will see Scorpio’s outburst as straight-up overdramatic. This won’t end in a conversation, but in Scorpio building resentment, and Gemini storming out of the house.

Sexy Time Icon

Sexy Time: Slow and Steady or Chompin’ at the Bit?

At first, the sparks here will fly, but eventually, like any flame, it will sizzle and burn out.

Scorpio, you’re a very sexual person, and while you may have had your fair share of one-night stands, you much prefer building a connection with a person. For you, it makes intimacy that much more fun. It’s a way you communicate.

Gemini, you’re the opposite. Intimacy is just a fun extension of dating. You don’t need feelings in order to enjoy it or connect with the person, and Scorpio just won’t understand it. Worse, as Scorpio’s feelings become more obvious, you may get scared off Gemini, but if you decide to take the leap and make it official, you Gemini are much more sporadic in your sexual nature.

You’ll want to experiment, but you won’t necessarily want to have sex every day. Scorpio, you have a high sex drive and are consistent in your desire for intimacy, but you’re not as adventurous as Gemini. Overall, this vibe will just feel off.

The Verdict?

So what secrets hide in this wise, mysterious book of yours Scorpio?

As friends, you’ll reveal yourself slowly to Gemini, allowing the two of you to build a genuine bond based on interesting conversations.

As lovers? You’ll fall too fast, Scorpio, and you’ll analyze everything too much, Gemini. Your fights will be brutal and the only secrets Scorpio will be keeping are the plots of revenge they’re planning behind your back Gemini when you leave them at home to go seek your freedom with your friends.
