Leo & Gemini: Bena & Faye-chan
When Gemini and Leo form a friendship, it is a playful and high-spirited connection. There is a lot of movement and optimism in this friendship. Leo has a spirit of creativity that is attractive to Gemini, who enjoys mental stimulation. Arguments may arise if Leo takes Gemini's flirtatious nature too seriously, or if Gemini feels that Leo wants total control of their friendship. They are well matched, though Leo wants to experience things firsthand, and Gemini would rather examine them from several different angles. Together they can discover and understand more than they would alone.
Both Leo and Gemini have a lot of energy, and when spending time together they can come up with great ideas and common goals. Neither Sign is a slacker! Leo likes the freedom to jump into projects and give the orders. Gemini wants intellectual freedom and is able to look at all sides of an argument and see the reasoning behind their Leo friend's choices. When Geminis vacillate, Leo can help them make decisions, but they also need to be careful to allow Gemini intellectual space and not be too overbearing or bossy.
Leo is ruled by the Sun, and Gemini is ruled by the Planet Mercury. These Planets represent communication and individual expression. Due to the compatible nature of these planetary energies, Leo and Gemini get along well as unit -- they are skilled at getting their point across in different ways. They may also have heated debates, but where Gemini does it for fun and intellectual challenge, Leo takes it more seriously. The Twins need to learn how seriously their friend takes such repartee and be careful not to cross boundaries.
Gemini is an Air Sign, and Leo is a Fire Sign. Air fuels Fire and keeps it going; Gemini can keep up with the creativity and energy of Leo and the Lion's tendency to see a plan through to completion. Gemini is able to follow Leo's action-oriented lead and jump into multiple activities with an intellectual outlook. Both Signs have wide-ranging interests, and Leo's desire to be at the center of an activity gives them great experiences to talk about later with the more mentally stimulated Gemini.
Leo is a Fixed Sign, and Gemini is a Mutable Sign. Leo is the leader of ideas, and Gemini will accept them as long as they don't feel pressured. When they spend time together, they won't bicker over who gets to take the credit for their achievements. Leo's vain nature likes glory, and Gemini is happy to be less conspicuous. Leo can see something through to the end, whereas Gemini will become bored if there is a lack of mental stimulation.
The best aspect of the Gemini-Leo friendship is their youthful, even childlike view of the world. They can truly understand and value each other's input to the world. Together they can discover aspects of life that they would have missed separately. Together, this duo will enjoy a successful and mutually beneficial friendship.
