At heart, Cancer is more emotional, while Gemini is more intellectual. Gemini is essentially articulate, versatile and adroit. Put another way, Gemini likes variety. Gemini is an idea person. On the other hand, Cancer is a good person who needs to deal with family and emotional issues. Cancer's hugs are world class and Cancer's snuggles are second to none. Cancer is naturally inclined to be touchy about some, but not all relatives, and needs to work on the family tree and make some sense of it all.
At times, Cancer may feel like Gemini has not one, but at least two different personalities.
Gemini's mind naturally likes to go from subject to subject. Gemini has varied interests and likes to keep up with what's going on in the world. Gemini can be the original "quick study" who grasps facts, concepts and ideas. On the other hand, Gemini can get bored easily and does not like things to drag along.
Cancer has moods that change about four times a day, every two and a half days, every month and every 18 or 19 years. Cancer needs to make the most of these cycles, and establish goals with corresponding deadlines. It is important for Gemini to be considerate of Cancer's changing moods.
Gemini needs open lines of communication. The best friends for Gemini are the ones who appreciate Gemini's sense of humour.
Cancer is not necessarily the most direct individual. Security is something Cancer is always aware of. Usually it's a top priority. Cancer is definitely strong and protective of turf.

Chinese Star Signs
The Ox and the Tiger's vastly different approaches to life make this a difficult match. Surprisingly, sometimes their very differences can make these couples spectacular lovers. Their overall compatibility rating is 40%.
The Chinese Astrological Ox is neither slow witted nor clumsy. These powerful, dependable beings were meant to lead. While their approach to fulfilling a task may be slow and methodical, they are capable of great things and never lose sight of their goals. Their stamina is endless and they are detail conscious. They believe in getting things right the first time.
To outsiders Oxen may seem to be too serious and unable to "let their hair down." Being introverts, these are easy assumptions to make about Oxen. Also they are very independent and appear to have no regard for what others think of them. However, hidden behind that distant air shown to the world, is a being that feels pain, loneliness and regret that they do not connect well with others.
The Oxen's comforts and delights are derived from friends and family and work well done. As a friend, lover or family member the Ox makes a reliable and protective ally who is always tender and affectionate.
When away from the family and out in the world the Ox can be stubborn and dogmatic. They are not ones to back down or take much guff from anyone.
The Ox is a good source of honest advice.
The Ox needs to try to be less quick to judge others. When they see the value of those who have qualities different than their own they are well on their way to a warmer social life.
