Taurus-Virgo compatibility — the pairing between a Taurus woman-Virgo man or Taurus man-Virgo woman (any Virgo-Taurus combination, really!) — is among the most divine in the zodiac. If you’re one of these earth signs and currently asking yourself, “are Taurus and Virgo compatible?” (or, more saucily, “how well-suited are Virgo and Taurus in bed?”), you’re in luck, my friend. The answers are yes and very well-suited, indeed.
“Virgo and Taurus are a match made in heaven, and it goes beyond their ruling element as earth signs,” says astrologer Valerie Mesa. They both have their faults and flaws, of course, but Taureans and Virgos are fundamentally grounded, loyal, and methodical beings, making them a brilliant pairing on a number of levels — romantically, intellectually, and (ahem) sexually. Because of these signs’ shared values, a Virgo-Taurus relationship is bound to be filled with care, commitment, and mutual respect. Swoon.
Will there be hiccups and hurdles to jump through? Absolutely, as there are in all relationships. But if any couple was built to tackle these challenges, it’s definitely a Taurus-Virgo pair. Here’s a look at the key ways bulls and maidens are meant to be, as told by the stars and the pros.
Taurus & Virgo Emotional Compatibility
They Both Crave Stability & Routine
Both Virgos and Taureans are known for showing up, in every sense. They’re among the most loyal and hardworking signs in the zodiac, and they expect their partners to return the favor. “Taurus and Virgo get along very well when in a relationship,” Stina Garbis, an astrologer and psychic, tells Elite Daily. “They just seem to get each other. They both have a solid head on their shoulders and can appreciate that about each other. Sometimes Virgo can get agitated easily with a messy partner who is a little chaotic, but not with Taurus, who is for the most part very sane and down-to-earth and pulled-together.”
These signs are plan-makers, not breakers. They’re also more likely to slip into a solid routine than to act spontaneous or perpetually go with the flow. “[A] Virgo wants someone they can fully rely on, especially when it comes to adulting [and real-life] situations,” says Mesa. “They're meticulous, detail-oriented, and devoted to their loved ones. This, of course, makes a Taurus swoon, given their innate desire for stability [and] security.” So, if you’re a Taurus or Virgo searching for someone to watch RuPaul’s Drag Race with you every Thursday at 9 p.m. sharp, look no further than your fellow earth sign.
Neither Loves Change, But One Hates It
As a general rule, Taureans and Virgos are the types of people who have a standing order at their local coffee shop — an order they don’t love to switch up just because there’s a new flavored syrup on the menu or oat milk has become the latest craze. They’re detail-oriented enough to know your order by heart, and thoughtful enough to bring you an extra large cup when you’re having an off day.
That said, Mesa explains that Virgos are “mutable” earth signs, while Taurus is a “fixed” earth sign — e.g. Virgos are much more flexible than their bullish counterparts, which is where these signs might clash on occasion. “Virgo will do absolutely anything to become more efficient, even if that means improvising [or] exploring something new,” says Mesa. “Taurus, however, is pretty set in their ways, and would much rather stick to the fundamentals [and] basics.”
Ever the bull, a Taurus will not want to budge an inch. “Taureans are known for being stubborn, and Virgo have the ability to change things up when they feel they could be doing something better,” Lisa Kiss, an astrologer, guide, and teacher, tells Elite Daily. “So, if a Virgo starts changing something around them ... the Taurus who does not like change may get upset.”
Virgo & Taurus Like To Take It Slow
Again, Taureans and Virgos aren’t known for their spontaneity — in relationships or elsewhere. They’re not prone to quick, steamy flings or one-night stands, and they’re also unlikely to dive headfirst in love with a new partner (no matter how compatible they may be!). “[Earth signs] like to think things through before acting,” astrologer Amy Tripp previously told Bustle. “They are often methodical and thorough in their approach." Both Taureans and Virgos prefer to ease into a relationship. Despacito, y’all.
They definitely need time to unearth their true feelings to their partner. “Taurus and Virgo are both not very emotional on the surface, though they both have deep feelings,” Garbis says. “It may be hard for them to express them.”
This emotional slowness can sometimes cause some problems — ones that are mostly just frustrating in the moment, but not actually anything major. “Virgo can act out of frustration when they are having feelings that they can’t express,” Garbis says. “Taurus’ love language is physical contact, and Virgo may grow frustrated with that if they are trying to make a point and Taurus wants to just skip to the bedroom and talk it out in bed.” With time, Virgo and Taurus can work through their feelings.
Taurus & Virgo Sexual Compatibility
Simply put, they balance each other out sexually. “Both are earth signs, so this ‘trine’ would create sexual harmony,” Kiss says. “Both can see sex the same way and want to try similar things.”
Being earth signs, they tend to be very sensual and love pleasure, as Garbis explains. “Taurus, being ruled by Venus, is a very sexual person and can understand emotion through the sense of touch,” she says. “Virgo is a little more vanilla at times and doesn’t quite enjoy sex like Taurus. However, Virgo can be a kind of kinky, and Taurus is always game for the taboo in bed.”
When it comes to sexual compatibility, Taurus and Virgo will also likely know how to strike the right balance of power in the bedroom. “Virgo enjoys submission, and Taurus will totally be into it,” says Mesa. “Taurus wants to sexually claim [or] possess their lover, [while] Virgo wants to submit to them and please them.”
But worry not, Virgos: Taureans are nothing if not hard-working and loyal, remember? “Taurus will also return the favor,” according to Mesa.
Taurus & Virgo Communication Style
As you can imagine, this pairing will also vibe well in terms of communicating. “Since Taurus and Virgo both are earth signs, they have a grounded approach to their communication,” Kiss says. “There will be a more practical side to each that the other will like and flow with. The trine between the two signs can create harmonious communication. They would both agree on practical matters.”
That doesn’t mean they’re without their idiosyncrasies and potential hiccups. “Taurus and Virgo have a funny way of communicating,” Garbis says. “They are both down-to-earth, reasonable, and rational, but they are both stubborn as well, and will sometimes say the obvious and offend each other by mistake. Both of these signs don’t like being told what to do and have to be careful about trying to control their partner.”
But for the most part, Taurus and Virgo will have no problem communicating. In fact, they innately understand each other better than many others might. “They may have long-winded speeches that each other will find interesting, but would bore most other signs,” Garbis says. Now that’s love.
All in all, Taurus and Virgo are a pretty solidly fitting pair. That being said, Mesa also warns that you have to consider the rest of your partner’s chart before you can determine your true compatibility. “We're a lot more than just our sun signs,” she says. Even so, if you’re a Virgo seeking your astrological soulmate, you may well have found them in a Taurus (or vice-versa). Congrats, earthlings!
