3 Zodiac Signs Most Compatible With Virgos, So Don't Be Surprised If You Click

As a Virgo myself, I can personally attest to the fact that dating for this zodiac sign can be a smidge tricky, partly due to the fact that we tend to be pretty shy. It can take us a little bit of extra time and effort to come out of our shells, but at the same time, Virgos are also the perfectionists of the zodiac. They can often be easily turned off by the smallest things, and taken together, these traits can make finding the right partner a bit of a struggle. That is, unless you know the zodiac signs most compatible with Virgos, which is honestly half the battle.

OK, so maybe I'm being too hard on my sign, but then again, that's also very much a part of the Virgo personality. They are their own harshest critics. While they have extremely high standards for the people in their lives, they hold themselves to the same exact standards, if not higher ones. But here’s the thing: That’s part of what makes them such great partners if you're the right fit. This earth sign is extremely grounded and generous with the people they care about most. When you're going through a hard time, Virgo is the first person there to offer support, and when you're successful, they are thrilled to cheer you on. (Although they may secretly take some credit for all that constructive criticism they gave you along the way.)

While Virgo may not be the most expressive in terms of romance — they tend to find traditional romantic gestures a bit cheesy — they show their love in more practical, everyday ways. They are always taking their partner's feelings into consideration and try to be there for them in ways they never knew they needed. It's a practical form of romance, but with the right person, it's a very effective love language. Here are the zodiac signs who truly connect with Virgo's heart and mind.

Virgo & Taurus

Taurus and Virgo are a romantic dream team. Both are earth signs and take a grounded view of creating a life with their partner. They both value security and stability in a relationship and are happy to do the work to make sure they have a strong foundation built from love and mutual respect. They also both share the same vision of having a good and comfortable life. While for Virgo that means taking the practical approach of planning and saving, Taurus’ love of the finer things in life brings a level of coziness, comfort, and luxury to their life. Taurus is a very sensual and loving sign (thanks to their connection to Venus), which helps push Virgo open up their hearts a bit instead of always leading from the mind. It's also what keeps these two signs out of the friend zone.

Virgo & Scorpio

On a surface level, passionate and powerful Scorpio may not sound like a good mesh for introverted and reliable Virgo, but in reality, Virgo is a balancing and steadying force for Scorpio that allows this very protective sign to lower their emotional defenses and open up their hearts. In return, Scorpio adds passion and excitement to a normally modest Virgo's life. Deep down, what a water sign like Scorpio wants is to feel like they can be totally secure and safe with their partner, which is something that trustworthy and steadfast Virgo can offer. This, in turn, brings out Scorpio's softer and sweeter side. While Scorpio can typically separate the physical act of sex from the emotional, deep down this water sign craves a deeper connection, and Virgo’s committed heart gives them that opportunity.

The one thing to be on the lookout for with this combination is that both signs can be a bit hyper-focused on their partner, which would push a more freedom-obsessed sign away. But Scorpio and Virgo are happy to lean in and become mutually infatuated with one another.

Virgo & Capricorn

Normally, Virgo is relegated to the role of the more serious and grounded partner in all of their relationships. In part, that's because they have a tendency to embody those qualities, but it's also a product of them feeling like someone has to be, and if not them, who? The answer to that question is the ultimate earth sign: Capricorn. When these two come together, Virgo feels free to let a little bit of control go, because they know that with a Cap by their side, life is not going to spin out of control. This is incredibly freeing for Virgo. While this may seem like it's a case of being too similar, it's actually more like two kindred spirits finding one another. They are both equally thrilled to have a partner to build something with, who shares their enthusiasm for structure and planning. These two signs “see” one another in ways that no other pairing can. Total power couple goals.

While astrological compatibility is not a guarantee that two people will work together, nor does it mean that incompatible signs can't find true and lasting love with one another, it's still a helpful tool for zeroing in on the personality types and values that may mesh best with your own. So, Virgo, next time you see a Cap, Scoprio, or Taurus show up in your matches, let the stars guide your fate and consider swiping right.
