Which Zodiac Signs Are The Most (And Least) Compatible With Virgo
Love, Zodiac

People tend to have a lot of pre-conceived ideas about the Virgo zodiac sign — they’re uptight, conservative, and judgmental. But Virgos are also funny, smart, and generous with their time. Even the most discouraging horoscope can't stop them from their quest for learning.

According to astrology, the symbol of Virgo is a Virgin, but that doesn't mean the individual born under this zodiac sign is inexperienced sexually or that they don’t have a sensual side to their personality.

In fact, when it comes to zodiac compatibility — Virgo compatibility, specifically — you might be surprised at how well your zodiac sign matches up.

Virgos can be know-it-alls because they do know a lot. They’re very educated and have a thirst for knowledge. They love to take classes, research, and if they don’t have the answer for something, they’ll get it. They tend to be organized, have an attention to detail, and are very reliable. If a Virgo promises to help you out, you can count on them to be there for you.

This zodiac sign is fantastically talented, and their talents are varied. They’re not just great actors or storytellers; they’re amazing musicians, filmmakers, writers, and photographers.

Yes, Virgos can be critical, but most of the time, the person they are the most critical with is themselves. One of the most important Virgo traits is their ambition to always want to do and be better. Never underestimate the value of having a Virgo in your life.

To help you decide if the Virgo personality is someone you can get along with, use this guide to Virgo compatibility.

Virgo & Aries

You know how some people come together and they just click? Well, that's not the case for Virgo and Aries.

It's not that they can't appreciate each other's strengths and weaknesses, it's that they're opposites when it comes to what they need and how they process information.

Virgos need safety and security whereas Aries need constant challenges and stimulation. Virgos think things out thoroughly whereas Aries tends to act impulsively. Virgos tend to be on the sensitive side and that's not Aries strong point.

Virgo and Aries don't exactly bring out the best in each other. Instead of the couple that everybody wants at their party, Virgo and Aries are the couple that annoys everyone with their endless and seemingly pointless fights.

Virgo & Taurus

Here's a match that has the potential to work.

Both signs seek security and safety when it comes to love, and they take the time to develop it. They're both hard-workers, determined, and careful. However, Taurus are stubborn, and if they get into a stand-off with Virgo, no amount of evidence that Virgo has will change their mind.

Taurus is more sensual and indulgent than Virgo which could be helpful in loosening Virgo up... or it might do the opposite. If Virgo gets too critical, Taurus may take it way too personally and it could affect their relationship.

If Taurus could be open enough to hear what Virgo is saying, without getting mad, then a relationship could work. 

Virgo & Gemini

On one hand, both of these signs are excellent communicators and extremely intelligent.

They connect on a verbal and cerebral level. They get excited when they're in a conversation and will feel attracted to the other through their words. They've both got a million ideas and opinions and they love sharing them with someone who is their match.

Where they don't see eye to eye is in commitment. Geminis like things to be more flexible, whereas Virgo likes the security in having things locked down. Geminis tend to not sweat the details and to Virgos, details are everything, which may lead to some distrust and irritation in the relationship.

Virgo and Gemini will have to be very honest and non-judgmental with each other in order for this combination to flourish.

Virgo & Cancer

A Virgo-Cancer relationship has the potential to get better and better over the years.

Both signs are sensitive and creative. Virgos may keep their emotions to themselves more than Cancer does, but Virgo could provide a nice balance to Cancer's moodiness, as long as Virgo doesn't try to overanalyze Cancer's emotions. 

They are both loyal, faithful, and take their commitments seriously. Cancers may put home and family on a higher level than Virgo but they're important to Virgo as well. Virgo will help Cancer to achieve their goals, and Cancer will help Virgo to be more accepting of themselves.

Virgo & Leo

This is the couple that doesn't like each other to start, but over time may develop mutual respect and attraction.

To Virgo, Leos are too big, too bold, and too confident. Virgos tend to keep their great gifts to themselves and they don't understand why someone (Leo) would crave the spotlight so badly.

Virgo is more likely to say "I love you" with a thoughtful gesture, while Leo's declarations of love are grander with expensive gifts. Leo may come off as insincere to Virgo, and Leo may consider Virgo too repressed to live life fully.

If the lack of understanding between these two is never dealt with, it will only get worse.

Virgo & Virgo

A two Virgo partnership could be something akin to a well-oiled machine — there is structure, communication, and everything runs smoothly. However, if one or both the partners get bogged down in the details, that machine can grind to a halt.

If one is overly critical with the other, there could be conflicts. Two Virgos would also be a double dose of worrying which could cause tension in the relationship.

But as long as they are honest, treat each other well, and aren't too harsh with each other, they could have a very satisfying and healthy relationship.

Virgo & Libra

Virgos and Libras make great friends, but they don't go together well romantically.

Virgo tends to see Libra as flighty, gullible, and too easily influenced. Virgo is happy to try and guide Libra into making better decisions but tends to get exasperated at what they feel is Libra not taking things seriously enough, especially matters of the heart.

They both have great taste, stand up for what they believe in, and enjoy going to the theater and/or enjoying other forms of culture. Virgos and Libras share the need for frequent ego-boosts, but they have trouble understanding each other emotionally. 

Virgo & Scorpio

Trust is extremely important to both these signs, so if Virgo and Scorpio can develop a solid foundation for their relationship, then they have a chance at making it. Virgo is intrigued (and a little scared) of Scorpio's intensity and passion, but they like it.

Virgo would probably like Scorpio to be a little more forthcoming. It's difficult for Virgo to not react to the power and magnetism that Scorpio possesses. Both of these signs are intelligent, faithful, and goal-oriented. Scorpio can get somewhat controlling and jealous which doesn't go over well with Virgo.

As long as Virgo and Scorpio can adapt to each other and their idiosyncrasies, they should be able get along well.

Virgo & Sagittarius

Virgo and Sagittarius are another one of the most challenging romantic combinations when it comes to zodiac compatibility.

The good thing is that both love all things philosophical and intellectual, and they both have great senses of humor. However, Virgo is way more practical and pragmatic than Sagittarius.

In many ways, Virgo and Sagittarius are at cross purposes. Virgo wants stability and security, while Sagittarius wants fewer ties and more opportunities to explore and have adventures. Sagittarius tends to be more optimistic than Virgo who is much more of a realist.

The more comfortable the relationship gets, the more likely Sagittarius will get wanderlust which Virgo may not understand.

Virgo & Capricorn

We have a winner! Virgo and Capricorn are very compatible and a relationship between these two is solid.

There's a lot of mutual respect in this pairing as they have so many shared goals: create a strong foundation, work hard, and prize family. They know they can trust each other and that they're protected.

Virgo and Capricorn are both ambitious and generally have a number of projects going on at the same time. Capricorn is patient while Virgo gets bogged down in details. They understand that a healthy relationship always requires work and they're both able to give it.

To outsiders, these two may look a little dull, but appearances can definitely be deceiving, as Virgos and Capricorns both have a wild streak when it comes to sex and a racy sense of humor.

You may think you've got these two figured out, but in reality, they've got you fooled.

Virgo & Aquarius

In some ways, Virgo and Aquarius are very much alike: they're both smart, creative, and work tirelessly on humanitarian efforts. However, on the flip side, they differ in huge, sometimes unsurpassable ways. But Virgo is much better at dealing with emotions than Aquarius is.

Virgos tend to like everything in its place and they prefer knowing what to expect rather than doing something spontaneous. Aquarius is very independent and may be confused by Virgo's "come closer, get away from me" attitude. Virgo tends to be more old school of thought and taste, whereas with Aquarius it's all about modern and new.

Both like people, but Aquarius is a little more expansive; they are more accepting and like almost everyone. Virgo can get a little awkward in some social situations.

These two would probably make excellent business partners, as Virgo could keep Aquarius from getting too outrageous and Aquarius could help Virgo to expand their thinking.

Virgo & Pisces

Virgo and Pisces are very compatible and very good for each other.

Both will go out of their way to help others, and they both place a high value on love. Pisces' unconditional love of Virgo will help Virgo not to be quite so critical of themselves, and Virgo will help Pisces be more goal-orientated.

Virgo is creative in different ways than Pisces, so they will not only understand the process that Pisces goes through when they create, they will help Pisces turn their art into a way of making money. Pisces can trust Virgo and they know that Virgo won't take advantage of them — this means the world to Pisces.

Virgo is sensitive enough to realize what Pisces needs, when they need it, and is careful to treat Pisces' tender heart with care. Pisces will help Virgo to be less analytical and more present.

If they continue to listen to each other and take what the other says to heart, this relationship will only grow stronger.
