It’s Cancer season, the sweet and sensitive water sign who is not so compatible with Gemini… There is a major clash in motivations and internal needs this month, however, in saying this, one thing the Gemini man can appreciate is Cancer’s powerful imagination and intuition. There is a saving grace in this super sensitive month, the universe isn’t completely against Gemini! Read on to find what to do and what to avoid.
How To Attract A Gemini Man In July 2021
1. ‘Roots, Home, And Family’
One thing Gemini shares with Cancer is a love of home and roots. We always take a little bit from the signs next to us, and Gemini comes just before Cancer in Astrology. Cancer is ruled by the 4th house, the house of home, roots, and family – physical foundations and our sense of security.
Gemini may not completely get Cancer’s emotional and watery ways, but this man can at least respect and even admire how family-oriented and wise the Cancerian spirit is. Cancer is a home-body – they love to provide and care for their family, friends, and loved ones, thus July provides a sense of security and comfort.
Ask the Gemini man questions. Get to know his life story, his childhood and past. Appeal to his nostalgic and even sentimental side, and if he seems to become awkward or shy, pulls away, or shows emotional resistance, don’t feel it’s you projecting or needing to become insecure. This is his insecurities and there is great healing and connection to be found!
You can establish significant trust and respect this month by showing that you have emotional depth and compassion, that you’re sensitive and mature in family topics. This isn’t saying that you need to get so deep that you frighten him or make him see you as soppy, but do be sensitive to his vulnerable emotional state.
Also, even the “negative” responses and memories can be wonderful for your relationship. Life is not just rainbows, fairy tales, and unicorns, the dual aspect of life is the darkness and suffering we have to overcome to reach inner balance and harmony. If the Gemini man is feeling reflective and sharing apparently negative stories from his past, listen with an open heart and mind. Be caring and empathic.
2. Imagination Rules
The second “saving grace” is the effect the cosmic themes are having on our imaginations. The Cancer sign is ruled by the Moon, which is the planet of the subconscious mind and the imagination. Cancer is extremely creative and artistic, musical, and imaginatively gifted.
As the ‘Great Nurturer’ and ‘Mother’ of the Zodiac (in essence/energy) Cancer season is asking us to get in tune with our inner child and inner mother or caregiver simultaneously. Ultimately, there is big potential for entwining with the Gemini man in both a free-spirited and child-like, fun, way, and a mature one.
It’s okay to be a bit wild, you know! Let your inner wild woman out to play, be free and liberated in self-expression. July is all about your capacity to express yourself whether that be through sound and clear communication and the sharing of ideas, information and beliefs and wisdom, or through music and creativity.
Are you a poet or storyteller? Storytelling favors strongly all month, so get out your journal or poetry book, pick up your guitar and get your voice ready, or be ready for the celestial vibrations. A date at night under the stars provides for a truly magical and mystical experience, something the Gemini man wouldn’t necessarily think up himself but one he appreciates all the same.
3. Stay Cool, Calm, & Collected
Gemini has an aversion to deep emotions. He can be sensitive; however, he doesn’t resonate with the depth and ‘extreme’ (in his eyes) sensitivity of Cancer or any water sign for this matter.
While the Sun is in Cancer you will need to be careful of mood swings, pessimistic thinking, over-emotionalism, and trying to connect with him on a deep emotional level, especially if this is how you normally function. Cancer’s influences heighten our need for emotional bonding, but Gemini simply doesn’t work this way. We’re all wired differently.
The best thing you can do, therefore, is to bring some humor into the equation. Respond to his mood and words with light-heartedness, joy, and positivity. With reference to his sentimental and ‘looking into the past’ tendency, Gemini is more reflective than usual and this means if he does have a not so pleasant story or experience to share, you can bet he will want you to help lighten the mood.
He needs some feminine care, nurturance, and wisdom when the Sun’s in Cancer. You should be confident in your feminine intuition, wisdom, and intelligence! Even if it means you appear momentarily superior or in charge, magnetism and receptivity can be a form of dominance and leadership in itself. (And he finds this sexy and very, very appealing…)
4. Expansive Thinking
Gemini is the sign of the higher mind and intellect. Communication, the exchange of ideas and wisdom, and everything related to the mind is ruled by Gemini’s ruling planet, Mercury. The Full Moon in fellow air sign Aquarius lights this up. Furthermore, Aquarius is the visionary dreamer and humanitarian with a strong sense of idealism.
This Full Moon on the 24th coupled with the previous enter into Leo season (22nd) makes for a wonderful, fun, and high-spirited end of the month. Gemini loves Leo, they’re considered soulmates, and Aquarius is equally as compatible. So, make sure you get in good spirits and touch up on your key pieces of wisdom and ‘wow’ material to share.
Leo season pushes us all to want to show off a little… Talents, passions, knowledge and unique abilities crave the spotlight, or at least a little attention.
As the “trickster” or “cosmic joker,” the fun-loving party goer and social chameleon, the Gemini man will be pulling out all the stops! And he is looking for a lover and companion to share in the madness. If you’re a circus performer, entertainer, poet, musician, storyteller, or work with poi or fire, you will see just how much he comes alive in light of your talents.
Shine in a way that is authentic to you while equally being mindful of being memorable. There is no time for meekness or reservation from the 22nd!
5. Optimism Is Necessary
Finally, regardless of what comes up in energy or conversation it’s essential that you stay optimistic. There’s a difference between emotional intelligence and being sensitive during intimate emotional sharing, and giving into pessimistic or negative thinking. Low moods and the depressive shadow aspect of Cancer won’t be tolerated, nor should you even want to go there.
Make a commitment to rolling through the emotional and nostalgic vibe of Cancer season until the playful and joyous energy of Leo comes into the picture. You can use this window as an opportunity to strengthen your own emotional wisdom, intelligence and maturity (and empathy) so that the Gemini man sees you as the multi-dimensional sparkling Goddess that you are!
Final Thoughts & Key Astrological Transits
If you’re born of water or earth, you can show your powerful subtle feminine essence to the Gemini man, in a way that he may not fully understand but can admire all the same.
The New Moon in Cancer on the 10th is a great time to reflect and converse with empathy and emotional intelligence! A psychological, physical and spiritual connection can be built from powerful emotions and an openness to intimacy.
When the Sun enters Leo on the 22nd, followed closely by the Aquarius Full Moon, feel liberated and free to be more expressive and direct in communication and approach. Be sure to check out my blog, Gemini Man Secrets, it’s your guide to discovering more about this incredible man!
