Giannina Gibelli and Damian Powers' road to romance on Love Is Blind wasn't the smoothest. But while they fought dozens of times and often made it seem like they might not make it (Powers literally said "I don't" at the altar), they — spoiler alert — ultimately found their way back to each other and are still going strong as a couple. Surprising? Maybe, until you take Giannina Gibelli and Damian Powers' astrological compatibility into account. Suddenly, their journey makes perfect sense
Gibelli is an Aries and Powers is a Gemini. Both signs are dynamic, passionate, and seek out relationships with people who can excite and challenge them. Their biggest relationship fear is falling into a rut, so while they both value commitment and want a partner to share their life with, settling down for good is not always at the forefront of either of their minds. This can be a challenge if they date more traditional, security-craving signs (looking at you, Taurus), but in one another, they find a common vision for how they want to live their lives. They might just have a few communication rough patches to work around, which can cause some early turmoil in their dynamic.
All of this will sound awfully familiar if you followed Powers and Gibelli's love story on Netflix. But now that they’ve confirmed their post-show relationship status, here's what else we can surmise about this couple based on their zodiac signs.
For Aries & Gemini, Life Is Full Of Adventure.
Both Aries and Gemini crave new experiences and mental stimulation. In one another, they find someone who can finally keep up with their intellectual curiosity and desire for adventure. Both signs tend to be risk-takers, and find those who don't share their mentality to be frustrating because there’s so much you can miss out on if you aren’t willing to take the occasional leap of faith. It's not surprising that these two were drawn to an unconventional way of finding love, and that they took the risk of opening up their hearts even though it made them feel vulnerable. They probably thought that at the very least, it would have made for a novel experience and a great story to tell in the future.
Their Sexual Chemistry Is Fire.
If there’s one thing that a Gemini and Aries couple is never short on, it’s passion. These signs have a verve for life and an innate curiosity that lends itself to some hot sex. They’re both uninhibited and want to explore each other's bodies and connect on a deeper level. The only disconnect they might face is around frequency, as Aries is up for it whenever the inspiration strikes — which is often. Gemini needs a bit more personal space to recharge before they're ready to reconnect in the bedroom. This may lead to some frustration on Aries’ part, but it can also add to their overall passion when they do get to be the conquering hero in bed.
Trust Is Their Biggest Hurdle.
Due to their different approaches to life, these signs tend to struggle most with trust. Aries has a bit of a jealous streak, and Gemini's known for being fickle if they feel like their partner isn’t challenging them intellectually. Where Aries is all about following their gut, Gemini needs more time to process their decisions.
This clash becomes most apparent in their fighting styles. Aries (thanks to a connection to Mars, the planet associated with passion and aggression) usually wants to have it all out in a big blowout followed by a passionate makeup. Gemini wants to methodically talk through the issue bit by bit thanks to their connection to Mercury, the planet associated with communication. These differences can create an impasse if neither party is willing to forge a new, unique way of working through issues together.
When you look at Powers and Gibelli’s relationship through an astrological perspective, their early struggles to get on the same page make sense. But this is also why, ultimately, they couldn’t give up on the connection they shared. Sometimes, even stormy beginnings can lead to a match made in heaven.
