Gemini and Scorpio Compatibility in Friendship, Love, and Life

Gemini and Scorpio are certainly different from one another. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, also known as the messenger god Hermes in Greek mythology, the fastest god of all. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, also known as Hades in Greek mythology, god of the Underworld.

The connection Hermes had to Hades was that he brought him the souls of the dead. There is a strong connection there.

Scorpio and Gemini are an interesting mix. One is very serious and turned on by darkness and intensity (Scorpio), and the other one is happy-go-lucky, light, joyful and chatty (Gemini).

Scorpio is a feminine, Fixed Water sign, while Gemini is a masculine, Mutable Air sign. They form a quincunx (or inconjunct) aspect to one another. Scorpio is quite introverted and likes to hide in the shadows, while Gemini is extroverted, popular, curious, and enjoys being around people. These are two very different signs indeed!

Gemini and Scorpio Friendship 

Overall Compatibility

Scorpio may notice Gemini, as Geminis seem to flutter everywhere bringing light with them, and will bring sunshine to a lot of the darkness that Scorpio holds. Geminis are very curious about Scorpios, as they are so different to them. 

When these two first meet, they may become good friends, however the friendship will only last if Scorpio doesn’t get too dramatic with Gemini, and Gemini learns to restrain their excessively chatty tongue with Scorpio.

If these two can keep a “surface-level” friendship, then they may be friends for years. No matter what, Gemini may be attracted to Scorpio, as Scorpio emanates such potent sexual energy naturally.

Overall Compatibility Rating: 5/10

Mutual Interests 

This must be said, Scorpio and Gemini don’t have too much in common. Scorpios are extremely sensitive, intuitive, psychic, intense people that are attracted to topics covering the macabre, supernatural and the unknown.

Geminis are curious people with light energy that love communicating with as many people as possible, are curious about the world, and can chat non stop.

What they do have in common is a wish for happiness. Scorpios often create their own turmoil and pain. They are not naturally a “happy-go-lucky” sign, while Geminis seek happiness in each moment. Both Scorpios and Geminis may turn to Eastern practices such as yoga to find inner happiness and peace. 

These two also like music, poetry and reading and writing. They share a love of books and enjoy things that stimulate their intellect. They are also so different to one another that it keeps them curious about one another. 

Mutual Interests Rating: 6/10


Here’s the problem. You get Scorpio who can be loyal, but is an extremely sexual sign, and Gemini who represents the twins, and is the one Zodiac sign most likely to cheat! Geminis easily live double lives.

If the Gemini feels suppressed by the Scorpio, they will look for love elsewhere behind Scorpio’s back. If the Scorpio gets irritated by Gemini’s naturally bubble energy, they may go and look for a one-night stand with someone.

However, if these two love each other very much and are always honest with one another, and there is open communication between them, then neither one should be disloyal.

Loyalty Rating: 3/10


Gemini is Air, and Scorpio is Water, and in Astrology, these two elements don’t really work well with one another. There is a deep well of emotions within Scorpio, and Geminis can’t handle it. A bond may form when they first meet, but they will most likely tire from one another.

The one strong bond they may have is the ability to transform one another. Scorpio can make a Gemini get in touch with their emotions, while Gemini can teach Scorpio to lighten up a bit, but this is not easy for either of them.

Bond Rating: 2/10

Gemini Man and Scorpio Woman Compatibility 

Overall Compatibility 

The Scorpio woman certainly captures the Gemini man’s eye. She is seductive, magnetic, sexy and mysterious. He is very curious and wants to figure her out. When they first meet sparks certainly fly, and there is a lot of interest in one another.

However, it is hard to maintain these sparks unless the Gemini man’s Moon is in Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces, and his Venus sign is in Cancer. It can also work if his Mars is in a Water or Earth sign, and the same goes with the Ascendant. If Juno is in Scorpio in the Gemini man’s chart then it can possibly work too.

The same goes with the Scorpio woman; she would need to have her Venus in Libra, with her Moon in Gemini, Libra or Aquarius, and her Mars in an Air or Fire sign, and this applies to the Ascendant as well. It would help if her Jupiter was in an Air or Fire sign, and her Juno was in Gemini. 

Overall Compatibility: 6/10


The Gemini man constantly loves to express his views. He is eager to communicate via texts and will bombard the Scorpio women with them, He is very chatty and expressionate. Scorpio women, on the other hand, love their peace and quiet and enjoy conversations that have a lot of emotional depth to them – that’s how they bond best in love.

The Scorpio woman may get irritated with her Gemini man, as his energy is all over the place and she is more self-contained. However, she helps her Gemini communicate about his feelings more, and he helps her not be so intense about everything she communicates, and helps her talk about things that make her happy and inspire her!

Communication Rating: 6.½  /10

Sex and Love 


Intimacy between these two is a lot of fun! Gemini men can move quite fast when it comes to sex, and Scorpio women can be sexual predators. They are the kind of couple that will have very dirty sex! He will enjoy talking “dirty” to her, and she will enjoy his stamina and the way he loves to change positions every few minutes!

These are the kind of people that can enjoy many “one-night-stands” with each other! They may also enjoy having many “dirty” phone conversations to turn each other on. If their bond is purely sexual this is fine, but should keep this to a minimum if they’re trying to create a long-term relationship.


These two will probably become intimate sooner than their hearts touch. Sexually, they are very compatabile, but it comes down to communication to see how far their love can go. They are very different people. Scorpio needs deep emotional connection for love, Gemini needs someone that is positive and lifts them up. Love doesn’t always work out here well.

There is also abuse that can occur within the relationship from the Scorpio’s side, especially if she gets fits of rage out of jealous moments. The minute any sort of abuse occurs, both partners need to sit down and talk, to make sure it doesn’t occur on a regular basis.

As parents, the Gemini father will be the one that the children want to play with constantly, while Scorpio mom will be there to listen to all their heartfelt emotions and feelings.

Sex and Love Rating: 7/10

Shared Values

There isn’t much common ground with this couple. The Scorpio woman values emotional depth and sensitivity, while the Gemini man doesn’t like to go too deep or involve himself in too much drama. She is also an extremely jealous person, and he is a natural flirt!

Scorpio women value honesty and truth, while Gemini men are known to tell white lies. There are very few shared values in this union. However, they both appreciate good communication skills.

Gemini Woman and Scorpio Man Compatibility 

Overall Compatibility 

The Gemini woman is extremely curious, and at first will be very intimidated by the Scorpio man. However, her curiosity will get the better of her and she will want to find out more about him. He will appreciate the attention, however, if she sticks her nose too much in his business he may push her away.

Overall Compatibility Rating: 5/10


Gemini women love to talk and talk and talk, and ask many questions. Scorpios think more than chat, and keep their thoughts private. There will be a lot of miscommunication between these two. The Gemini woman is so open and bright and positive, and the Scorpio man is so closed and “dark” and private. She may feel that he keeps many secrets from her.

However, there may be a lot of sexual communication from the start of their relationship, where they “sext” each other to turn each other on. This sexual chemistry between them, and the “naughty” messages they exchange start the magic in this interesting relationship.

Overall Communication Rating: 6/10

Sex and Love


Gemini women are very sexual when they’re comfortable and attracted to the person they’re being intimate with. They are not afraid to explore. Scorpio men are one of the most sexual of all the signs, venturing into BDSM practices, at times.

Gemini women don’t really have a problem with BDSM, as long as it is all done in the name of fun and not taken too seriously – remember, she has twins inside her and the naughty twin comes out to play in these situations. 

When these two get into bed, a lot of fun is to be had, where the Scorpio man will love dominating his Gemini woman. She may feel very desired this way. However, if things get too rough, there must be a “safe” word, so that he knows to slow things down a bit.


A Scorpio man will be very protective over his Gemini woman, and this will always make her want to stay with him. She’s such a crazy flirt and will love the fact that he gets so jealous! 

This union may partner up pretty quickly, however unless the Gemini woman has an abundance of planets in Water and Earth signs, and the Scorpio man has an abundance of planets in Air and Fire signs, they may not last the true test of time.

This relationship can also become abusive when the Scorpio man does not give the Gemini woman enough space to feel free. If he makes her feel trapped and unable to do what she wants she may become very angry towards him and act out, and this can cause violence within the relationship. This is something that needs to be worked on from the beginning. 

If they do marry and have children, there will always be a deep love of the children from both their sides, where the children will see Gemini mom as fun and bubbly, and the Scorpio dad as the wise and serious father who teaches them many lessons. 

Sex and Love Rating: 6/10

Shared Values

Both the Scorpio man and Gemini woman go through a lot of transformation in their life. Scorpio is naturally connected to transformation, and Gemini is represented by twins. These twins constantly battle each other until there is more unity, and this comes with spiritual growth.

Scorpio men and Gemini women enjoy the pleasures that the world has to offer in terms of beauty and nature. However, Scorpio men can have a somber and macabre view of the world, where Gemini women always see the glass as half full!

Gemini rules the 3rd house of communication, neighbors, siblings, and primary education. Scorpio rules the 8th house of death, transformation, other people’s resources, and sex and the orgasm. These two Zodiac signs are extremely different; however, sometimes they can make it work – it all depends on the different planetary placements and aspects in their charts!
