Beginning to know the specifics of your own zodiac sign meanings is a first step on the way to insights about yourself, your life, your choices, your challenges, and your relationships and interactions with other people.
The question of romantic compatibility is perhaps the most frequently sought information among those who consult horoscopes, because zodiac signs matches can provide insightful information about the relationship between any two people of different zodiac signs.

Virgos are sensitive and creative, and tend to shy away from the limelight. They focus their energies in supporting or nurturing other people, and can often be found in careers that serve others. Virgos are deep, reflective and understand (and forgive) human frailties. They tend to rely on their mind ahead of their emotions, so they may be mistaken for cold or emotionless. From the Virgo’s perspective, it only makes sense to approach things logically. Virgo is an organizer, and scrupulously detail-minded.
Mercury, the planet which rules Virgo represents swift movement, not unlike the Virgo’s mind. And like Mercury the Messenger, a Virgo is a good communicator. The element Earth is associated with grounded practicality.
In love, a Virgo remains kind-hearted and un-cynical even when mistreated, and sometimes people take advantage of their giving natures. Their practicality, however, can make them unparalleled helpmates, when a person doesn’t mind their fussiness over details.
Anybody whose birthday falls at the edge of the Virgo dates is known as being “on the cusp” between Virgo and the adjoining horoscope signs, and may have slightly different personalities:
- The Leo/Virgo Cusp–Because Leo and Virgo have such opposite tendencies, people born on this cusp have an unusual mixture of extroverted and introverted tendencies, flamboyance and modesty. They are logical and practical, as well as superbly creative, and combine that creativity with a careful attention to detail. They tend to come up with creative or unusual solutions to problems. In love, they are devoted to the point of jealousy, and seldom flirtatious.
- The Virgo/Libra Cusp–People born on this cusp are most content when they are involved in a relationship, but tend to look at the world from an intellectual point of view. They are perfectionists, fussy about detail, and skilled at cooperation, but tend toward self-doubt. They are always polite, and feel strong loyalty to friends, and although they may enjoy a good debate, they hate to quarrel. If someone offends them, they get even without letting their anger show. They are often health-conscious, but with a definite lazy streak that often wins out over exercising. In love, they are devoted, playful, and romantic.
Virgo horoscope sign matches and compatibility
If you wish to attract the interest of a Virgo, be aware that the Virgo tends to be somewhat fussy and perfectionist. Reliability and traits that appeal to the intellectual side of Virgo, who may feel the need to approve of you before falling in love with you are very important.
Here’s what you can expect in a relationship between a Virgo and the other horoscope signs…
Virgo and Libra tend to be at opposite ends of the spectrum in many ways. A Libra likes to socialize and tends to be very accepting of other people, while Virgo is more introverted and tends to be judgmental. Emotional Libra and Rational Virgo would have to make some adjustments in order for a relationship to work.
Virgo and Scorpio may share an enjoyment of analyzing people, as well as satisfaction in a practical approach to life. Scorpio brings some intensity and adventure into the mix, and the intelligence of both can help them overcome any relationship challenges.
The easy going nature of Sagittarius can make this pairing feasible, and even serve to “lighten up” Virgo somewhat.
These two are attracted to one another by their shared penchant for planning and deliberation. For the success-driven Capricorn, meticulous and organized Virgo can be the perfect support person. And for their part, Virgo is happy to stay more in the shadows and enjoy the security provided by Capricorn’s success.
The intellectual bonds between these two will overshadow everything else.
Virgo and Pisces can complement one another, or drive one another crazy. A great deal depends on how they handle their different approaches, particularly given Virgo’s tendency to plan and organize, contrasted with the inability of Pisces to arrive at a decision. Add into that mix the emotional needs of Pisces and the habit of Virgo to think instead of feel. This can be a very challenging pairing.
Virgo and Aries tend to pair well because they fill one another’s “gaps.” Virgo is caring, nurturing, organized, while Aries is confident and versatile and can provide security.
These two share some “conservative” traits, such as a dislike for disorder, extravagance, or recklessness. A Virgo dedicated to work may provide the perfect support for a Taurus rooted in home matters.
Virgo brings steadiness Gemini brings passion, and both bring communication skills to this pairing, which can be a complementary smash hit.
The patience of a Cancer may be well suited to the fussiness of a perfectionist Virgo, and this pair will tend to nurture one another, with Virgo bringing practicality into their joint approach to life.
Virgo’s perfectionism can be a deal-breaker here, because Leo doesn’t react well to criticism. This pair might have to put some work into a relationship to develop a manner of communication that works between their very different natures.
12. Another Virgo
The combination of two perfectionists can either be a “perfect” match or a disaster. Both tend to express affection through useful or helpful actions, and both tend to take an ultra-practical approach to life, which means they might understand one another better than anyone else could do. However, they can also be wound too tight, as a pair, with no one to ease up the perfectionist drive.
