Earth sign Virgo makes an excellent partner for those signs who vibe with its organized, kind, and hardworking character traits. Even for signs who are a more complicated match, Virgo relationship compatibility will change the way you approach partnerships and leave a lasting imprint on you, no matter how long your relationship with them lasts. With the new moon in Virgo tonight, it's definitely time to pay homage to what a Virgo lover brings to every single one of their relationships across the Zodiac.
If you are in a relationship with a Virgo, you already know that a Virgo in love is soul-searching and introspective, bringing a wisdom and a grounding force to the relationship. Even when it seems to outsiders like a Virgo is getting too caught up in the nitty-gritty details, anyone who loves a Virgo knows that it's the practical aspects of life that provide a Virgo with a sense of structure. For signs with less Virgo relationship compatibility, this characteristic might prove a burden to the relationship. For others who thrive with Virgo's constant search for truth and attainment of goals, you'll find that your Virgo partner is an excellent companion on your journey through love.
Here are the very best qualities that a Virgo lover brings to a relationship with each sign:
Aries (March 21 to April 19)
Relationships between fire and earth signs are always unusual, and yet fiery, juvenile Aries matches better with mutable Virgo much more dynamically than one might think. The lasting mark of a Virgo's relationship with Aries is honesty. Both of these signs won't be able to help themselves from telling one another exactly what they think. And because of the value that both Virgo and Aries places upon honesty, it's a quality that the Aries and Virgo couple will come to cherish above all else in one another.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)
Fixed earth sign Taurus is ruled by sensual, romantic Venus, which kicks all of its senses into high drive. A Virgo lover will be extra attentive to the little things that bring their Taurus partner pleasure. Virgo is the kind of sign who will make Taurus' bed in the morning. These two signs are strongly bonded by their relationship to home, food, money, and other materiality. Their mutual understanding of what brings one another comfort and security prepares this couple for the long haul. At the root of their relationship is a strong sense of friendship, which blossoms like a flower from the soil into a partnership that could last into old age.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)
Both Gemini and Virgo are ruled by Mercury, which means that Virgo's relationship with Gemini is determined by the constant breeze of chatter that flutters between the couple, reinforcing their bond and bringing oxygen to their relationship. As mutable signs, Virgo the Healer and Gemini the Communicator will enjoy flexibility within their relationship. These two signs have the ability to work for their love through their mutual power of communication. They will talk on and on and on about how their partnership can become a stronger one, and will be able to constantly make adjustments as they go along.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)
In Cancer's life, Virgo the Healer will be helpful in healing the wounds the tender crab carries from previous relationships. When Cancer gets lost in their watery emotional depths, Virgo will provide them with a grounding force of intellect and logic that will help center them. Meanwhile, Cancer will take care of Virgo on an emotional level. Cancer's relationship with Virgo works because the two signs trust one another fully.
Virgo helps Cancer practically address life's stressors by being the one who reminds Cancer to pay their parking ticket on time, for example. And Cancer will provide Virgo with emotional insight and intuition that will help light their way forward through the nitty-gritty, unorganized aspects of life that are out of Virgo's control.
Leo (July 23 to August 22)
Leo isn't ruled by any planet, but by the Sun. This patriarch of the Zodiac expects their lovers to be drawn to their light and their heat and bask in the glow of their company. Virgo, on the other hand, can be critical of Leo's unabashed self-love and egoism.
A Virgo-Leo relationship is a bit like the relationship between Heath Ledger and Julia Styles in 10 Things I Hate About You. They initially start out as enemies and eventually grow to love each other, with Leo giving studious Virgo a chance to break free from their rigorous work and Virgo teaching Leo to understand that a relationship takes two people. It's not all about what Leo wants. A Leo-Virgo relationship is the epitome of "opposites attract."
Virgo (August 23 to September 22)
When a Virgo is in love with another Virgo, they will enjoy doing everything together. Whether moving furniture, going to the carnival, or cooking dinner, these two will find pleasure in the little things. Their shared sense of commitment and sensitivity to one another's needs will make sure that this relationship moves at a pace that is completely perfect for both of them. A Virgo-Virgo match might look boring from the outside, but within the relationship, these are two Healers who perfectly understand what one another needs.
Libra (September 23 to October 22)
Libra is about balance, and that will make their relationship with sensitive Virgo feel secure. These two signs are all about commitment, and they will feel solid in having found a partner who is as interested in the long-term potential of a relationship as they are.
Libra's calm, guiding force will be the driver of this relationship, but Virgo will smooth its course with their attention to the little facts of their days. A Virgo-Libra relationship works because of their love of structure and balance; in a committed relationship, these signs will feel like two gears clicking smoothly into place.
Scorpio (October 23 to November 21)
Virgo and Scorpio actually share a mutual dark side: Virgo's nit-picky attitude is reflected in Scorpio's watery depths. Where Virgo will wield this trait against others, Scorpio will internalize it against themselves. Scorpio's self-criticism will lead to anger or depression.
A Virgo-Scorpio relationship will feel karmic, as it provides both signs with the opportunity to investigate the sources of their flaws and work to heal their wounds. This might sound frightening to other signs, but Scorpio has never shied away from the dark. This is a couple who will evolve together. They might not be together forever, but what they learn from one another will last for the rest of their lives.
Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21)
Goofy, sweet Sagittarius provides levity to serious Virgo. Sagittarius' strong sense of direction makes sure that they value Virgo's attitude and commitment to work, as when Sagittarius is completely tuned into a project, they share a lot of Virgo's ethic.
Both of these signs feel a strong need to rationalize and analyze. They make their decisions based on intellect, rather than going with their gut. Emotionally, this couple will work completely in sync and will usually be in agreement about major life choices. If they aren't, their divergent paths will usually pull them apart.
Capricorn (December 22 to January 19)
A Virgo-Capricorn partnership is fully committed to fulfilling one another's dreams. This is a couple who is willing to work hard to build the life they would like to share together. They view their relationship as a project. They aren't interested in trying to improve or change one another; rather, they channel all of this energy toward improving their surroundings. A Capricorn finds their Virgo lover to be their complete partner in crime, dedicating themselves to obtaining a life of substance.
Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)
If there is any sign who can understand Virgo's high-mindedness, it's lofty Aquarius. This fixed air sign is all about what goes on in their head and is completely incapable of pursuing a relationship with someone who doesn't intellectually stimulate them. Lucky for them, Virgo is one of the few signs who can really get into their brain. In fact, Aquarius might even be exhausted by Virgo's capacity for rationalization and analysis. As Aquarians are usually accustomed to being the visionaries of the Zodiac, meeting their intellectual match might mean their Virgo relationship gives them a sense of relief.
Pisces (February 19 to March 20)
In a Pisces-Virgo relationship, sex is an ultimate bond. Far from being fleeting, the two approach their physical attraction as a spiritual act. Virgo is drawn to the purity with which Pisces approaches sex; even in a casual encounter, sex with a Pisces feels like making love. That's why Pisces is sometimes hesitant to approach sex, but Virgo's earthly nature and high-minded capacity for rationality will set them at ease. They know that Virgo won't ghost them after a one-night stand. Even though sex might be the basis for the relationship, it's not going to end at the stage of infatuation. Virgo and Pisces can build a life together based upon their sensitivity and the heightened sensuality they enjoy in one another's presence.
