Cancer in this relationship will be slightly more Moody and temperamental than their partner. This will be surprising to the Geminian, who tends to be more congenial.
Gemini is a sign that really likes to go out and have fun with their friends and socialize. In contrast, their partner would be more family-oriented and prefer to stay more at home than go out.
When they’re in a situation where they have to make a decision or act quickly, the crab usually relies on their feelings to come to a resolution. The twins are more a thinker, and they will usually use their minds first before they come to a decision as to what they should do.
When two people that are different get into a relationship with each other, there could be pitfalls or gaps that they have to work together to overcome. This could be the make-it-or-break-it situation for this couple because, from the outset, they could either distance themselves slowly as things progress or even daily will realize that their differences complement each other and continue making things work.
That is why they say that usually, opposites do attract.
How are Gemini and Cancer in love?
Even though their personalities and characteristics are quite different, they can become quite fond and close to each other in a relationship.
If they work together, they can take their deep inner natures and balance them out. The Cancerian can bring feelings and emotions into this relationship. At the same time, their partner can help with the decision-making.
The Geminian will be able to bring comfort to their partner with the positivity and clarity that might be needed when their partner is at their lowest point.
At the same time, the crab can captivate the twins’ heart and bring them an emotional component they might feel they are lacking in their lives.
This relationship could be intense but, at the same time, could be magical. It would be the kind of relationship that both of them would leave with some beautiful memories of what they shared, even if it didn’t work out long-term.
The cheerful Gemini might get bored with their sappy and sensitive partner.
Alternatively, jealousy could arise when cancer feels like their partner isn’t giving them the attention they want. Since Geminians like to go out and have fun instead of staying home all the time.
This relationship really does have a lot of tension that it needs to get over, and there could be many conflicts that could try this couple. That said, it doesn’t mean this relationship is doomed to fail.

Gemini in love | Cancer in love
Experts Discuss This Couple:
Jenn: It would be very hard for the two of you to have a successful relationship since you both tend to be so moody and unpredictable. There would be constant conflict in this relationship. You both are restless and long for the variety it would take a lot of compromises and work to make this relationship a success. It sounds hard because it is.
Laura: Gemini, with his quick wit, may have to learn to hold his tongue more than usual, around the ultra-sensitive Cancer. Gemini’s quick observations, even if presented in a comedic manner, can make Cancer squirm. Cancer on the other hand, can very well show Gemini how to make sense of all those inner emotions.
Tracy: A Cancer and Gemini may operate differently with Cancer being ruled by emotions and Gemini the mind. With little common ground it may be difficult to sustain a long commitment
Heidi: Cancer’s passion intrigues Gemini and Gemini knows how to brighten Cancer’s day. However, Cancer probably won’t feel completely secure because as time will prove, Gemini doesn’t like to be tied down. Cancer’s self esteem can become wounded easily and Gemini knows just how to do it. This couple will have difficulty understanding one another, making a long term relationship really difficult, but not completely impossible.
Keley: This combination can be excellent, but only if the Gemini is ready to settle down. Cancer is all about family and security… if Gemini is still in the flighty stage of romance, it will drive Cancer crazy.
Marcus: The Twins and the Crab usually eye each other warily. Gemini senses that a Cancer may be too brooding, gloomy, and serious for their light-hearted ways. A Cancer does not like the fact that a Gemini always seems to be hard to grab on to, (crabs do like to latch) and that they seem to always have one foot out the door. If the Crab could let go and Gemini could come in for a landing once in a while, it might work out.
David: The Twins are easily distracted and capable of denying their feelings; while moody Crabs become emotional at the drop of a hat, and look to their relationship to connect on that level. Generally not a perfect match.
Gemini Man and Cancer Woman
A Gemini man enjoys freedom and independence, while this woman desires stability in her relationship. This guy loves his partner even though he has a lighthearted and carefree attitude. In contrast, a Cancer woman is prone to possessive behavior, which can sometimes annoy this individual. They both have different tastes in love. Crabs want close relationships, while twins want freedom. It is usually a happy relationship despite their many differences. The nature of their relationship is quite mysterious. Mostly, the times they spend together are great for both of them. She needs to grab his attention if she wants him to love her.
How to Be Successful in This Relationship
Don’t let jealousy get between him and his friends.
He is perfectly comfortable with the idea of their being different types of relationships; in fact, he probably could rattle off a list from the top of his head. He loves conversation and activity, and those special times he spends with his comrades (friends with similar interests) are really important to him. You don’t want to have to make him choose; try to get him to take you along.
Don’t try to tie him down.
You happen to be born under a patient sign, give things time to find out if he is someone you really want, and if he really wants you. If he does, he will let you know; he’s not one to waste time on things that can be taken care of quickly.
He can’t stand being bored.
That’s why he changes the subject in conversation or wants to go someplace different whenever he eats out. Try doing things differently when you are with him; change your hair often, or try out newer and younger styles of dress; that will really get him going.
Cancer Man with Gemini Woman
The relationships between these two are fascinating and exciting. Their complementary qualities make up for what each other lacks. But the women love to play and have fun, and Cancer men tend to be nurturing, which can sometimes lead to hurt feelings for these guys.
It is impossible to pin these ladies down to one thing. Although they are brilliant, their theory is that they should be jacks-of-all-trades, as mastering only one thing would keep them from doing other things. And Gemini women want constant change in their life.
How to Be Successful in This Relationship
Realize it will take time for them to share their feelings.
These Men are quite sincere, and when they feel like they’re being properly and fully loved, there’s almost nothing they won’t do for their partners. You need to realize, though, that they aren’t usually in a hurry to express their feelings; he can wait and “make sure” much longer than you can or do.
These Men are traditional, protective, and understanding.
If you put some effort into keeping up with mundane responsibilities, his understanding of you may grow in time. Speed up the process by cheering him up when he’s in a down mood, or by feeding his desire for affection. You’ll need to avoid becoming dependent on him or letting him be too possessive of you.
Focus on his sense of humor and social skills.
His sense of humor and his social skills are likely to be his best asset in your eyes, so make sure that you provide him the opportunity to enjoy them. He likes meeting new people, but he is sensitive and doesn’t like to be the target of others’ humor. You have the ability to get him out of his beloved comfort zone, and once he does declare himself, he’ll become a gallant, affectionate, and almost poetic partner.
Gemini and Cancer Friendship
For the Twins:
They hush you down, poke and prod at your worries, and constantly want you to talk over your emotions. They also take care of you, and while they might not understand your eternal lightness, brightness, or upbeatness…they adore you.
For the Crab:
If you don’t try to keep up with the endless talk and ideas and focus on that innocent, sweet being inside you, they can appreciate your differences. They are always fun. They are the perfect don’t-worry-be-happy pal.
Cancer & Gemini Relationship
For The Twins:
Hmmmmm. They are ultra-emotional. You are ultra-intellectual. They get easily hurt when they care. You often don’t see a hurt even after its hits you. You guys really have to tune in to each other. But remember, anything can work if you want it to.
For The Crab:
The problem is that you are never quite sure where you fit into their constantly moving world. They say this…do that, say something else and end up back where they started. Still, it’s lively, it’s never mundane, and if you can stay flexible, you’ll enjoy this love-friendship.

Gemini and Cancer In Bed
Despite being polar opposites, you can make surprisingly good bed partners as you can use sex as a release.

This is a relationship that can last, but not without a lot of hard work. Cancer can be smothering sometimes, while Gemini likes its freedom, which will cause quite a few tiffs if you don’t watch out. Situations between these two-star signs can become intense very quickly, which can cause a drift between the two of you in a matter of minutes. You need to take time with each other and build up the trust properly to make this work.
Gemini must ensure to give and not just take from Cancer, as they will feel threatened or lonely, being left to their own devices. Giving each other your own space is very important to allow each other times to breathe. To begin with take the sexual part of your relationship slowly, as the Gemini confidence to try all things new will frighten Cancer and make them feel as if they are unable to keep up. Over time, you will both learn what you need and want sexually and it will be incredible!

Three plus years I have been in love with this woman. Most of what is written in this article appears too true.
I am the Cancer man. She is a Gemini woman, a swinger and a self declared sex addict. She loves the variety of different partners but it is more than just her natural Gemini curiosity or boredom.
She is really at least two and a half people. “Sex girl” a self declared sex addict, with an insatiable sex drive (at 73 years old) and is paired with someone who can manipulates her mind to use her addiction for his own benefit. He twist events and beliefs in her head so she often believes the opposite of what actually occurred as the truth. All this so he can use her addiction to get himself laid by someone new. He says he will give her “emotion” (as a form of barter) if she sleeps with a man who can provide a different sex partner(woman) for him, even when she is not attracted to the person she needs to sleep with to benefit his needs. The second personality is “Love girl” who truly needs emotional sustenance and needs the bliss of love in her life to feel complete. Love girl although not usually dominant is still very resilient. She was the little girl who hid away when the personality who became sex girl was dealing with the sexual abuse. I say dealing with because sex became a way of controlling her abuser. Rather than fight or protest the abuse, sex girl wanted to prove she enjoyed it even more than her abuser….thus stealing the “power” from him and proving to her abuser that he was no longer in control.
This tended to become a life pattern for the woman over time. Her sexual enjoyment allowed her to control the men she became involved with even if just to use them and discard them. But ever in search of the ultimate orgasm was both the curse of her life as well as the holy grail of her spiritual search. Sometimes she would fake sexual pleasure just as a means of control. But love girl was always still there, and would seek out emotional nourishment however she could. When she found it and enjoyed this nourishment sex girl would want her vengeance immediately thereafter, because “Love was never good nor ever to be trusted”. “Sex girl” would immediately go on a sexual binge to prove to Love Girl and Love Girl’s emotional attachment, that love was never to be trusted and could be trumped by sex at any time. I.E. that Love Girl always remained in control.
I once inaccurately accused her of being an emotional vampire. Inaccurately because she was not “stealing” this emotion or love from me, but I was a vehicle to give her access to the one thing that might be her salvation or release from her torment. This love was not “mine” to give or withhold. it belonged to the cosmos or to God or Christ and was in fact destined for this poor abused being who in spite of her deflections, was ever searching for her true soul. I did not fully understand her dichotomy or that her insatiable need for emotional sustenance was driven by that earlier schism to try to restore some balance.
The third personality (I referred to perhaps unfairly as a “half”) is this woman’s conscience……she appears to have one. Her conscience is her judgement (something she denies doing) trying to understand if there is right or wrong in her own or another’s behavior (mostly her own) And she is capable of remorse. But this remorse gets perverted (no pun intended) and becomes a path to BDSM as a way of punishing herself for the wrongs she knows or feels she has done. She gets off sexually from this, perhaps as a reward for feeling she is balancing her own Karma.
She was sexually abused in a foster home at the age of nine and ten and threatened with much worse if she would ever reveal this. Herein lay the foundation of her schizophrenia. She became “love girl” who wanted true emotional fulfillment and “sex girl” (which as a Gemini she was somewhat predisposed to be anyway….but her needs became more driven and extreme.) I feel we might be twin souls, at times she feels the same way. On the other hand she has deliberately hurt me. She is actually a medically diagnosed schizophrenic.
But I love her still in spite of the disdain I feel sometimes and her very confused life (at least from my viewpoint). I do believe we may well be twin souls although every Oracle or Zodiacal commentary I read on Cancer men and Gemini women would indicate this is unlikely. Whether it is her ability so summon the sexual siren at will or in fact that we are two “separated at birth” Twin Souls, I know she is ever on my mind and in my heart and soul.
My apologies your reply wasnt lost :)
