Sometimes, two completely different zodiac signs make a good match that nobody would expect. And with Aries and Virgo compatibility, there's going to be sparks... and lots of tears.

Aries is a Fire sign while Virgo is an Earth sign, two elements that aren't quite compatible. But while these two zodiac signs seem like polar opposites, there's potential for a great romantic pair.

Because although they have their differences, their astrological synastry works wonders in all areas of their lives.

Aries and Virgo Attraction

Aries love taking on a challenge, so it’s only right for the first zodiac sign of astrology to chase after Virgo, a zodiac sign who seems emotionally unavailable.


Aries is attracted to Virgo because Virgo’s ruling house is in the sixth. The sixth astrology house represents good health — not only with Virgo, but with those who are in their lives.

Virgo loves serving those around them as a sign of respect and love, so they will maintain their mental and physical health to do so. It's only fitting that Aries is one of the most physically fit zodiac sign, and Virgo brings out their inner fighter.

At first glance, Aries might view Virgo as a stickler who doesn’t know how to have fun, and this can make Aries think twice about their attraction. Virgos are generally very shy when they meet someone new, but it doesn’t mean they don't know how to let loose.

Virgo will let their guard down when they see the other person is open and honest. So, when Virgo expresses interest in Aries, it can easily bring this zodiac sign back around again.


When Aries is attracted to Virgo, they are immediately on their best behavior. They want Virgo to know just how great and mighty the are. If they are attracted to Virgo, Aries will do everything in their power to win their heart.

But why is the wild, riled up Aries zodiac sign interested in Virgo, a perfectionist looking for structure?

Aries’ ruling house is in the first. For the rambunctious Ram, the first astrology house refers to the beginning of everything: first impressions, realizations of self, and so on.

Virgos love people who give their all when it comes to first impressions. They seem reserved at first, but it's because they are just getting a feel for the person they’re meeting for the first time.


Naturally, Aries letting their guard down allows Virgo to feel way more comfortable and less shy.

Aries and Virgo Sexual Compatibility

While Virgo and Aries are similar in their need to please others, their connection in the bedroom may suffer because of this. And though their differences can complement one another, when it comes to sex, they are not compatible.

Virgo is practical, so sex to them should be predictable; however, Aries is no stranger to experimenting, and their need to try new things will leave Virgo unsatisfied and perhaps a bit offended.

Aries also tends to be selfish and will rush through their love-making, focusing more on their physical pleasure and sometimes neglecting the needs of their partner. While there are other signs who enjoy this approach to sex, it leaves Virgo feeling taken for granted.


Another big difference, and a main reason why these two aren't sexually compatible, is the importance of sex in Aries and Virgo's lives.

Aries considers sex a priority in life, aiming to only have sexual encounters that fulfill them. Virgo, on the other hand, can get wrapped up in their emotions and need more time to open themselves up.

In fact, Aries might just be a little too much for Virgo, who can be endlessly picky, easily irritated, and overwhelmed by their perfectionist tendencies. Their initial attraction is strong, but sex between the two just doesn't press the right buttons.

Aries and Virgo Relationship Compatibility

In a relationship, Aries and Virgo demand the best from others. Virgo knows how to keep themselves fit and ready for action, and Aries loves this about them.


Aries’ ruling planet is Mars, the planet of action, energy, and desire, and their natural habitat is the zone of war or adventure. This explains why Aries can be so quick to spring into action, no matter the situation, and Virgo has the resilience to take the heat of this Fire sign.

This is a plus for Virgo because they love being ahead of the game, and Aries admires this trait.

If Aries can get the ball moving with any situation, they work better knowing they have someone on the same level. Aries thrives with Virgo, as Virgo is a perfectionist who will analyze every single detail of a situation and find out how well it can benefit them.

Aries admires this because with someone who can help them see the good and bad of each situation, they greatly appreciate the support.


Another positive part of an Aries-Virgo relationship is their intellectual connection. Aries loves great ideas, and Virgo has lots of wisdom and advice to give.

Virgo's ruling planet is Mercury, the planet of communication and the messenger of the gods. Virgos love to talk to everyone they meet, even if it's a random person at the grocery store. This complements Aries' desire to meet new people and show off their many talents.

Aries and Virgo Love Compatibility

Once Aries falls in love with Virgo, they usually don't fall out. And it's also because of Virgo's ability to take charge, a trait Aries admires in themselves as well as a potential mate.


Aries loves to lead and Virgo loves to be on the same team of the person who will lead them to victory. Aries sees that Virgo can be a great sidekick, as well as a leader. And although Aries is known to be the leader of the pack, they see themselves in Virgo and their leadership skills.

Virgos are fine with taking the passenger seat for certain destinations, so Aries won't ever feel as though someone is trying to take their place in the front of the race.

As far as shared interests, Aries is known to be very independent. They love the challenge of every new adventure and want to show off their newly achieved accolade. It's no coincidence that Virgo is also independent.


This makes Aries fall even deeper in love because they can be their own person without extra smothering. They are two different people, but once they join together, there's bound to be new, fun adventures.

These two zodiac signs don't seem like a match made in heaven at first glance. But their opposite natures make them great couple.

Overall Aries and Virgo Zodiac Compatibility

While Aries and Virgo truly admire in one another the similar traits they share, this coupling will have plenty of arguments and struggles to maintain power.

Both signs are intelligent leaders who never give up in getting what they want. But in their relentless devotion to being right, they lose romance.


What their relationship doesn't lack, however, is adventure and fun. They can certainly learn new things from one another, all while having a good time together.

Aries, needs to be sure to remain open-minded to the way the logical mind of Virgo works, while Virgo needs to open up and let themselves break free of the constraints they put on themselves.
