03. Gemini/Cancer people tend to be more sensitive to the movement of the Moon, their moods changing with the Moon’s passage.

Effervescent air and water currents are likely to indicate air and water travel which is acceptable to Gemini. However, Cancer is a home body and is not
comfortable being carried away, at least not all the time. Cancer is emotional while Gemini is intellectual, that is, as far as bits of information is
concerned – information that doesn’t have to be explained. Emotions are not logical but very difficult for the logical mind to deal with if it cannot be
explained. Gemini represents the twins who may be able to turn in both directions, dealing with emotions on one side and logic on the other but “never
the twain shall meet.” Only if you can keep the two separated can they be dealt with. Cancer isn’t really equipped to live with this two faced stranger. What needs to be explained about emotions? There is always a reason for the way you feel. People who don’t understand that are simply insensitive and perhaps uncivilized and cruel. Cancer is very uncomfortable with a stranger in the house, especially an insensitive stranger. With this combination you are likely to grieve in silence. At other times, you may become reckless, throwing caution to the wind and go where “angels fear to tread.” Both sides of this combination, unless carefully blended like hollandaise sauce, can be productive of embarrassing discouragement. You long to be social and friendly with everyone and yet too often others fail to understand your contradictory nature. Once you learn to blend these two dichotomies without jumping from one to the other you can become a real genius at making your emotions appear logical and vice-versa. As Spock said on Star Trek “Sometimes it is logical to be emotional.”
