There are numerous types of relationships to explore when considering compatibility between two signs. We grow up in a parent/child dynamic. Outside our family, we form friendships with other children and eventually other adults. We look for and find love. And, we go to work and have careers, interacting with employers and co-workers.
Each sign-to-sign interaction guides our behavior in every relationship. Read through this section to find out how each of the above dynamics works astrologically so you can experience the optimal way to communicate and get along with your sign and all the other signs.
The Gemini-and-Capricorn interaction is very productive. As the “I communicate” sign of the Zodiac, Gemini is open-minded, curious, and intelligent. Capricorn is the “I produce” sign of the Zodiac and is responsible, goal-driven, and practical. A long-term relationship (outside parent/child) is possible and likely positive. Capricorn likes to lead and accomplish, and having a relationship with a sign that is curious and loves to gather information works quite well.
Gemini Parent/Capricorn Child
The Gemini parent and Capricorn child will work well, but not as well as the Capricorn parent and Gemini child. In this alignment, the “following” sign is in a more powerful position than the “leading” sign. Still, since Gemini is the sign of the parent, it can adapt to any of its children, as needed. The Capricorn may want a parent that can give him or her more direction, but if this need is not fulfilled by the Gemini parent, then the Capricorn child will discover that the parent does not stand in the way of the child’s drive, goals, or interests.
Capricorn Parent/Gemini Child
The Capricorn parent and Gemini child will work well, mainly because the power dynamic suits the signs. Capricorn holds itself and everyone else to a high standard of responsibility and expectations, which can certainly be fine with the Gemini child, who likes to have direction and goals set by others. However, the Capricorn parent might get impatient with the Gemini child, who may need more “hand-holding” than a Capricorn will want to provide, especially after providing clear expectations for any chores or life lessons.
Gemini Friend/Capricorn Friend
Gemini and Capricorn friends are not problematic, but neither are they drawn to each other in an intense or serious way. In other words, they could be in a group of friends where they are connected to one of the other people in the group, which connects them. But if the group dissipates, they are not likely to pair off and hang out. There is a certain usefulness to the friendship, but not what would develop into “best friends” unless other factors in the chart make it so.
Gemini Lover/Capricorn Lover
This romance, love, sex combination can be one of the most practical and experimental of any of the matches. Gemini is a “let’s try anything” and Capricorn is “let’s see if you can keep up”. There is a results-oriented approach that might work well for the sex, but not necessarily romance and love. These two would need some help from water energy somewhere else in the chart; otherwise, the relationship would be more one of convenience or necessity, than love or passion.
Gemini Employer/Capricorn Employee
The Gemini employer and the Capricorn employee can work well together so long as the Capricorn can be promoted and keep achieving new goals. Gemini has the ability to understand how all the pieces of an organization work together and can help Capricorn find the path to success. Like the parent/child dynamic, the Capricorn, who is usually self-motivated will find no restrictions and little direction from the Gemini boss, which will work just fine if they also feel empowered.
Capricorn Employer/Gemini Employee
If the employer is a Capricorn and the employee is Gemini, this combination is quite good. Capricorn likes to give orders and Gemini likes to follow orders. This setup is certainly one where the Capricorn employer can make the Gemini employee “an extension of his or her vision” for the company. If there is a problem, it will occur because the directions going to the Gemini are unclear or incomplete. Also, Capricorn can use Gemini’s love of knowledge to be a source of information gathering and data sharing that can help everyone succeed.
Gemini Co-worker/Capricorn Co-worker
This combination works just fine, so long as Capricorn and Gemini can work out the right balance of leader and follower, even if the employer considers them “equal”. If they are not able to sync together, then each can become frustrated with the other. Capricorn will see the Gemini as inefficient and Gemini will see the Capricorn as inflexible and dictatorial.
