When it comes to romance, Virgo is a shy sign and often tries to hide this fact behind a very logical façade. In fact, strong emotions that seem to come out of nowhere strike Virgo as irrational and downright frightening. Through this lens, it's easy to see why some Virgo love matches fare better than others.
Taurus is an excellent love match for Virgo. Besides the obvious reason of the two sharing the same earth element, Taurus is stable enough to soothe Virgo's nervous streak and worrying tendencies. Virgo does not have to worry Taurus is going to do something out of the blue like empty the bank account and run off to Las Vegas for a weekend of fun, and this is very comforting. Virgo likes things to proceed logically by following the rules, step by step. Taurus doesn't have a problem with that.
Additionally, and perhaps more importantly to Virgo, Taurus takes this same approach to romance. The bull is willing to wait when it comes to matters of the heart until everything is just so.
Cancer is a water sign and tends to pair very well with Virgo, even though Cancers are quite emotional. The reason for this is that most Cancers are willing to listen to reason, particularly when the advice comes from a calm and gentle voice like Virgo.
Additionally, Cancers don't mind a Virgo's perfectionist streak since it can help these moon children feel more secure. From Virgo's perspective, it feels nice to feel valued, particularly when it comes to all the small gestures the sixth sign makes to show love. Cancer not only recognizes these gestures, the crab genuinely appreciates and sees them as steps towards a greater romance.
Cancer and Virgo are particularly well suited for one another. Once in love, both tend to stay in love and are eager to please their partners. So pairing up means there's an easy give and take in the relationship. Both take their time when it comes to choosing a significant other, and this is like a tonic to both when they realize just how lucky they are to be together.
There's often plenty of attraction between Virgo and Scorpio, and that's mainly because Scorpio is fascinated by Virgo's calm and seemingly unflappable approach to love. Scorpio feels things very intensely and is shocked by Virgo's rational yet calculated view of romance.
It's Virgo's cool approach that drives Scorpio to want to ruffle Virgo's pristine feathers. For Scorpio, this is quite a conquest and eventual victory! Further, both Virgo and Scorpio are signs that value intelligence and Scorpio loves the fact Virgo picks up on the smallest of details the eighth sign might have missed.
Both Virgo and Scorpio like to acquire resources. They share a love of beauty and place great importance on their home. Their living styles go well together, and their home is a place of order, comfort, and beauty. Both members value community service and spending quality time with their families. They may belong to organizations separately or together, and they will genuinely respect one another's contributions to society. They are more likely to socialize through service activities than through attending parties.
Virgos and Scorpios have similar parenting styles and usually work together to raise children with ease. Both have high expectations of their children and themselves, are devoted to home and family, and enjoy raising children.
The Scorpio's passionate and adventurous sexual nature can sometimes overwhelm the shy and practical Virgo. However, if Virgo will drop their defenses a little and Scorpio is willing to slow down a bit, the result will be amazing sexual encounters!
This couple will also spend entire nights in bed talking to one another about things that are important to them, be it each other, children or politics. Their love of communication and desire to understand one another can often keep them engaged until the sun comes up.
Virgos and Scorpios want everything "perfect." And this can become a real problem when the couple cannot agree on what perfection is. From time to time, it will be necessary to use their powers of effective communication and put love before all else to work things out.
Similar to the Taurus/Virgo pairing, Capricorn and Virgo can also find quite a love match with one another. Capricorn gives the impression of being serious and hardworking, and those are traits that Virgo appreciates. Capricorn likes things to look good, and Virgo likes things to be good and look good, so this is often an ideal pairing.
Another factor Virgo finds fascinating about Capricorn is the fact that Capricorn often takes the long-term view when it comes to life, and this helps ease Virgo's fear that plans will be not be disrupted. Virgo doesn't like surprises. These two signs often find that they have much in common on which they can build a long-term future.
Capricorn and Virgo's Suns are trine one another, and this, as well as their shared earth element, strengthens the relationship between the two. They are bound to see eye-to-eye more often than not, plus they hold a natural admiration and respect for each other.
As lovers, Capricorn and Virgo find it easy to communicate their needs and their mutual trust makes this even easier to achieve. The only pitfall to avoid in this area is a tendency for both of these down to earth individuals to forget to nurture their romance. Both need to make an effort to surprise each other once in a while.
Virgo's idealistic and often naive nature will seldom be disappointed by stalwart Capricorn. It will be rare for either of these partners to stray into infidelity, and instead, they should enjoy a full relationship that deepens as time passes.
There's no guarantee that there will always be perfect harmony between them, but in a relationship filled with so much mutual respect and admiration, differences can be worked out quickly and very diplomatically.
Other Virgo Sign Pairings
Of course, Virgos can find compatible relationships with other signs, but there may be unique challenges with some pairings.
Opposites Attract: Virgo and Pisces
Pisces is Virgo's opposite sign. Like the proverbial moth to the flame, Virgo can't help but feel fascinated by the seemingly elusive fish. Pisces is everything that Virgo likes: The sign seems free, unconcerned and unburdened by the traditional rules of life. Virgo is drawn irresistibly to Pisces' humanitarian world view and easy, laid back style. Pisces is blown away by Virgo's ability to keep eight balls juggling in the air while simultaneously holding a food drive for the homeless.
However, it's not always easy when these two signs get together. Pisces and Virgo each have a lot to learn from the other, and if they are willing to compromise, this can be an exciting and fulfilling relationship. If not, the separation might be a long and painful one.
Virgo and Gemini Relationships
The chance of compatibility for Gemini and Virgo is a bit of a gamble. These signs are very similar in some ways and very different in others.
Gemini and Virgo are both ruled by Mercury, so this planet's influence is filtered through each sign's personality. In Gemini, Mercury boosts the power to think logically. However, this tendency is mellowed by Gemini's easy-going nature. Mercury's influence on Virgo takes a slightly different turn. Ever the perfectionist, Virgo can be a bit critical under Mercury's rule. What this means for both signs in a relationship is that they may both come to the same logical conclusion about a given situation, but they will deal with that situation in very different ways, which can sometimes lead to discord.
There are some areas where Gemini and Virgo connect beautifully. Both signs have an appreciation for the arts and enjoy mental stimulation. This could mean engaging in deep conversation or debate, as well as sharing a good book or listening to Mozart. As scattered as Gemini can sometimes appear to be, both signs love to keep a clean and orderly home. They also share a taste for the finer things in life, including stylish clothing and fine dining.
The primary area where Gemini and Virgo will find conflict is in the different ways they think about and handle things. Both signs are strong minded, and they are ready and willing have their say in any situation, which can lead to some head-butting. Their intellectual natures can also lead to periods of boredom, especially if Virgo proves to be the dominant partner and reigns in Gemini too much.
Money can become another bone of contention in this pairing. Virgos are very responsible with money, and the urge to save rather than splurge can occasionally cut into Gemini's pursuit of care-free fun. In the romance department, Virgo's libido is slightly less dynamic than that of Gemini, and this can lead to another mismatch of energies.
Other Not So Easy Virgo Sign Pairings
Almost any Sun sign love match can be made to work if the individuals are both willing to set aside their differences. All of the love matches below are not naturally compatible, and each needs understanding and compromise by both people involved.
Virgo with Virgo is an intelligent and analytical pairing. Both are perfectionists, workaholics, very practical, highly organized, and methodical. There's a meeting of the minds so, theirs could be the ultimate business relationship; but when it comes to love, there's a brother-sister vibe that will soon cool romance and passion.
There is an element of magnetism in this love match, but the longevity of this relationship is in doubt. An Aries can't take nagging or criticism and has a tendency to act impulsively. Virgo can be nagging and critical, and also has a tendency to ponder over an issue before taking any action. These two are very different, and it will take a lot of understanding, adjustments, and compromises from both to make this love match work.
Virgo is humble. Leo is flamboyant. Leo has great pride, and Virgo can be very critical. Leo's domineering personality will eventually annoy Virgo, and Virgo's fault finding nature will annoy Leo. Theirs is a love match that can quickly prove to be a mismatch. Leo and Virgo seldom end up in a long term emotional or intimate relationship.
Libra is a social people person, Virgo is shy. Virgo is reserved when comes to expressing love and affection, Libra is very open and romantic. Virgo is a realist, Libra an idealist. Most often they won't even be attracted to one another. A love match between Virgo and Libra is not a good choice, as theses two are likely to drive one another crazy.
Virgo is productive, cautious, and reserved. Sagittarius is carefree, spontaneous, and sometimes reckless. Virgo is reclusive, quiet, and often pessimistic. Sagittarius is social, talkative, and always optimistic. They are both flexible and adaptable people who have changeable nature, but their differing personalities and attitudes about life combined with their unpredictable natures does not bode well for a long-term relationship.
Both Virgo and Aquarius are intellectual and can easily be friends, but a love match between these two will be an ongoing struggle. They each have a different approach to life, and neither has what it takes to bring out the other's passions. These two can bring out the worst in each other, and making their love match last will require both of them to make more than a few adjustments.
Finding the Perfect Mate for a Virgo
Virgo can successfully pair with any number of astrological signs, but much depends upon the birth charts of both partners. However, based solely on the Sun signs, Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio, and Capricorn are the best love matches for the sixth sign of the zodiac.
