People tend to have a lot of preconceived ideas about the Virgo zodiac sign, including Virgo compatibility. 

They’re uptight, conservative, and judgmental... But Virgos are also funny, smart, and generous with their time.

The most common known Virgo traits are their strong organizational skills and tendency to control.

But Virgos are also incredibly loving creatures — depending on who is in front of them.

Some signs do not mesh well with Virgos, but that doesn't mean that Virgos are incapable of love. 

Virgo Compatibility: Overview

When it comes to the Virgo compatibility chart, this prudent sign needs a lover as devoted to them as they will be in return.

They can be critical of others, but this is only because Virgos want the best out of their relationships.

In the end, their protectiveness of themselves and their loved ones is a defense mechanism.

They are so afraid of being abandoned that they often have the tendency to ruin a good relationship.

It might not make sense to you, but it makes so much sense in their heads.

If they break something off before it gets hard, then they'll protect themselves from being heartbroken.

What makes someone a good match for Virgo?

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.

If someone wants to date a Virgo, they have to be able to tolerate lots of questions and handle a ton of curiosity.

They tend to be organized, have an attention to detail, and are very reliable. If Virgo promises to help you out, you can count on them to be there for you.

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

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.

Virgo Core Traits

Virgos are perfectionists and judgmental control-freaks.

This can make them both the worst and best roommates to have. They wouldn’t be caught dead leaving a dish in the sink — but if you forget to do your chores one day, you might be dead to them forever. Good luck riding that lease out!

However, they also are intelligent problem-solvers, which makes them great teammates or co-workers.

Virgo Compatibility With Each Of The 12 Zodiac Signs

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

Virgo and Aries

Love: You know how some people come together and they just click? Well, that's not the case when it comes to Virgo and Aries compatibility.

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

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.

Sex: Aries isn't the most considerate lover. They tend to rush into bed and takes things pretty quickly. This can be steamy in the right scenario, but Virgo might occasionally find themselves saying, "Hey, you could at least buy me a drink first?"

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: Virgo, Aries, oh my! When it comes to building a life together, these two have completely different approaches.

As an Earth sign, 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. This can mean lots of unintentional insults and constant fighting.

Virgo and Taurus

Love: 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. They share a similar attention to detail and will work hard in this union. However, Taurus is stubborn, and if they get into a stand-off with Virgo, no amount of evidence that Virgo has will change their mind.

Sex: Taurus is more sensual and indulgent than Virgo, which could be helpful in loosening Virgo up... or it might do the opposite. Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of love, and has a natural intuition when it comes to reading other's sexual desires.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: These Earth signs are grounded and looking to find love for life. This means they're at least on the same page if they do decide to pursue marriage.

That said, these hard-working zodiac signs will have to put in a good shift to stick together. 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 and Gemini

Love: 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.

Sex: If these two chatterboxes can make it to the non-verbal part of relationships, they can certainly take things to the next level. This may not be the steamiest relationship ever, but Virgo and Gemini will put in a high level of effort to impress one another.

Geminis do tend to get bored easily, so Virgo must be willing to change tactics from time to time.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: Where they don't see eye to eye is in commitment. Gemini likes things to be more flexible, whereas Virgo likes the security in having things locked down.

Geminis tend to not sweat the details, but to Virgos, details are everything, which may lead to some distrust and irritation in the relationship. Virgo is a control freak, so over time they may grow frustrated with Gemini's lack of organization.

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

Virgo and Cancer

Love: 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.

These two both love to serve others so, together, neither of them will be neglected.

Sex: Where Virgo and Cancer might struggle is in their physical intimacy. When both want to be the one pleasing and impressing the other, it's hard to be in sync.

For a Virgo/Cancer sexual relationship to work, they must learn to take it in turns so everyone is satisfied.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: A Virgo/Cancer relationship has the potential to get better and better over the years.

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 its goals, and Cancer will help Virgo to be more accepting of themselves.

Virgo and Leo

Love: 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.

Sex: Fire signs are known to heat things up in the bedroom, and Virgo loves to get fiery under the sheets, too. Virgo will find Leo to be an exhilaratingly exciting lover, and Leo's pride will definitely be boosted by Virgo's willingness to please.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: This is the couple that doesn't like each other to start, but over time may develop mutual respect and attraction. If the lack of understanding between these two is never dealt with, it will only get worse.

But these two can find common adoration and strength together if they work out their differences.

Virgo and Virgo

Love: Needless to say, these two see the world the same way and can find comfort in meeting someone as demure as themselves. Things won't move too fast in a Virgo/Virgo pair, but that is just how they like it.

It's hard to see Virgos running into too many problems early on, but 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.

Sex: In bed, these two know all the right buttons to push without even having to ask. Neither will compete for attention or seek to dominate. Instead, Virgos simply move in sync without having to communicate.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: 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.

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 and Libra

Love: Virgo and Libra make great friends, but they don't go together well romantically. Their love for one another is more of a mutual respect rather than romantic passion.

Virgo, Libra — 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.

Sex: Libra can be old-fashioned when it comes to romance, so it may be a struggle for Virgo to make it to the bedroom.

Virgo will probably feel like their advances are constantly being shut down. Equally, during sex, Libra might want to move more slowly and delicately than sensual Virgo is willing to.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: Virgo tends to see Libra as flighty, gullible, and too easily influenced. Virgos won't feel very reassured that this is a lasting union.

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. Meanwhile, Libra won't appreciate being forced into decisions nor will they like the balance of the relationship shifting constantly.

Virgo and Scorpio

Love: 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. However, once Scorpio sees that Virgo is putting in work, this Water sign will feel more comfortable to open up the floodgates of love.

Sex: Scorpios have a way of making other zodiac signs express their intimacy, so Virgo will have a hard time resisting. This is fine by Virgo, though, since they want a physical connection they can foster and strengthen. Scorpio will be impressed by Virgo's secret sexual prowess.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: Trust is extremely important to both these signs, so if Virgo and Scorpio can develop a solid foundation for their relationship, they have a chance at making it.

These two are loyal in love and won't turn their back on the relationship too easily. As long as Virgo and Scorpio can adapt to each other and their idiosyncrasies, they are two compatible signs.

Virgo and Sagittarius

Love: 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. Then, there's the problem of independence. Sagittarius wants to be free while Virgo believes couples should stick together.

Sex: Sagittarius doesn't need much convincing to leap into bed, but that doesn't mean they will stick around. Virgo will certainly be wowed by this Fire sign's sexual prowess, but it can be a bit overwhelming at times. Virgo might end up missing some of the slower sensuality they experience with other signs.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: 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 and Capricorn

Love: Capricorn and Virgo 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. This makes them the ultimate power couple for their ability to guide each other through tough times. They understand that a healthy relationship always requires work and they're both able to give it.

Sex: 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 that keeps thing entertaining in and out of the bedroom.

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

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: We have a winner! Virgo and Capricorn are very compatible and the relationship between these two Sun signs is solid.

There is 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 Aquarius

Love: 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.

Sex: Aquarius tends to be too concerned about the greater good of society to allow themselves to receive pleasure which undoubtedly slows their romantic connections.

Virgo can wind up feeling like Aquarius is unfocused or uncaring in bed, which may leave Virgo thinking their efforts would be better directed elsewhere.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: 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.

Long-term romantic partnerships, however, may suffer since Aquarius wants to look outward rather than focusing on personal relationships. If you're an Aquarius, consider looking elsewhere for a romantic partner.

Virgo and Pisces

Love: Out of the other signs of the zodiac, Virgo and Pisces are extremely compatible and very good for each other.

Equally tender and caring, these two will easily find mutual understanding and respect. Virgo can help Pisces be more practical and focused, while Pisces will help Virgo connect with their emotions and channel their creativity.

Sex: During sex, Pisces is like a mind reader and gives Virgo exactly what they want. This intuitive Water sign is awash with sensuality and intimacy, which Virgo can easily match.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: 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 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.

What should a Virgo marry?

Fellow Earth signs Taurus and Capricorn can be stable partners for Virgos.

These signs have a way of sticking together through the tough times and coming out the other side stronger than ever.

Capricorn, in particular, is someone who Virgo can find long-term happiness with since these two match and oppose each other in all the right ways.

Cancers are another balanced match. This emotional sign can bring out Virgo's sensitive side, which is necessary for a long-lasting connection. They are also both extremely caring signs, an important quality when it comes to growing old together.

A Virgo's best match for marriage should be Taurus, Cancer, and Capricorn. Hands down, they have the most compatibility with Virgo signs.

Who is Virgo's soulmate?

Capricorns are the kind of person a Virgo can feel deeply connected to without much effort.

These two see the world the same way. They are both independent and ambitious in their own lives but come together to feed each other's soul.

Pisces is also a good soul match for Virgo.

This intuitive sign can nurture all of Virgo's needs, while Virgo can guide them to be more focused and diligent. Together, these two bring out the best in each other.

Who is Virgo sexually compatible with?

Virgo is a sensual sign who loves to please others, making them a great match for Leo, who loves to be pleased. While Virgo gets turned on by impressing someone else, Leo is aroused by any stroke to the ego.

When it comes to wanting something in return, a fellow Virgo will certainly put in the work.

What is a Virgo attracted to?

Virgos are attracted to minds more than bodies. They want someone who can inspire them intellectually. They want someone who puts in work to their own lives, someone with goals and aspirations.

But, most importantly, they want someone who will make the effort in a relationship.

Virgos aren't impressed by grand gestures or over-the-top gifts. They simply want to see that someone is caring, nurturing, and willing to go out of their way to strengthen the relationship.

Who is Virgo's worst match?

An Aquarius is not the best match for a Virgo woman — in fact, they're the worst.

Aquarius, Sagittarius, and Leo are hands down the least compatible signs for Virgos.

Virgo signs have a terrible sex life with each of these zodiac sun signs.

A Virgo zodiac sign needs someone a bit more stable, committed, and organized. 

Who should Virgos not marry?

Virgos should definitely not marry Aquarius. These are not the star signs for Virgos. 

In addition, Sagittariuses and Leos are not a good match for a Virgo man or woman. 

A Virgo loves to be taken seriously, which is not something any of these signs of an easy time doing.

The best match for a Virgo woman is someone who is not obsessed with being center stage all of the time.

They don't feel love for attention hogs, flakes, and aloof people. 

One thing to consider when assessing Virgo compatibility is that your Sun sign can only ever show you part of a bigger picture.

Examining your entire birth chart and taking Moon and Rising signs into consideration will give you a much better insight into which zodiac signs you’re most compatible with.
