You are dependable because your approach is always one based on common sense and a realistic and analytical assessment of the problem.

You give much attention to detail, but you can carry this to extremes, becoming fussy and critical, sometimes interfering. Large-scale projects can overwhelm you because of your insistence on perfection. Unless you can deliver such quality, you may become frustrated and discouraged. There is always the tendency and danger with Virgo that the big picture idea will be missed in search of minute details. You expect yourself and everyone around you to be perfect, often setting yourself up for disappointment. Your outlook is too negative and picky sometimes.

Modest and unassuming, you are usually content to live in the background. Your attitude, at times, can become puritanical and prudish. You consider yourself an ordinary person, and you are never given to any airs of pretentiousness or showing off. There may be a tendency for you to see your role as one of service and “behind the scenes” support activity.

Often, the Virgo becomes exceptionally neat and orderly, even a bit neurotic about cleanliness. You’re likely to be susceptible to stress related problems because you do tend to worry too much.


You have plenty of willpower and dedication, and you work harder than anyone to make sure something is perfect. Why? Because if you can’t do everything superbly, you being to fear that you’re failing. You are much too critical of yourself. Actually, you’re an enigma that no one has quite figured out. You hold back with people you do not know well and are reserved even with those you love. Inwardly though, you feel very deeply. Intensity and extreme sensitivity are part of your secret self. You like looking after others- giving advice to friends, feeding stray animals, tending to sick plants- but you need to be appreciated for the kind of things you do. Above all, you want to be useful because you truly care about people.


You are regarded as a real go-getter. People trust you to handle any job. They think of you as a person who can analyze almost any problem in a logical way. Others come to you when they want their own actions explained to them, or are feeling confused about relationships. You are values for your ability to set priorities and to create order out of confusion. Because you’re both discriminating and truthful, people trust your judgment on books, theater, and clothes. However, you don’t wear your heart on your sleeve, and as a result others perceive you as haughty and cold.

Virgo and Leo Love Compatibility

Here is a good chance for a happy partnership. Magnanimous Leo will overlook Virgo’s tendency to be critical, while Virgo will take pride in Leo’s accomplishments, good humor, and lovable nature. Virgo will bring in that couple’s sexual life large amount of emotional heat and understanding. Leo will respect Virgo’s clever and alert mentality. Virgo will try to excite and satisfy the partner. Leo is also persevering person, so the chances for mutual satisfaction are really big. This is one of those relationships that depends on the type of relationship it is. The connection is usually “nice” and a long union also is possible.

Virgo and Aries Love Compatibility

The bravery of the Aries will probably intrigue the imagination of shy, reserved Virgo for a time. However, their sexualities are so different, that they will have to be very patient in order to succeed. Aires’s passions are impulsive and direct. Virgo’s sexuality is more enigmatic and takes time to be revealed. In other areas Aries is full of exciting new plans and ideas, and insists on being boss. Virgo is critical and fussy, and likes things to be done the way Virgo wants. In case the charts are well aspected for these two it could work, but it will take a lot of effort on both sides. Otherwise the relationships will not be very pleasant and chances for a successful marriage are fifty / fifty.

Virgo and Cancer Love Compatibility

Cancer’s responses are emotive while Virgo’s are analytical, but their personalities mesh so well that it doesn’t seem to matter. The Virgo is practical person and gives a basis for this union. The Cancer is more emotional creature but they are capable to feel pleasure from their relationships. They perfectly fit each other in the bedroom. One of the dangers in this relationship will be too much caring! Each one of these signs love to look after, and fuss around the person they love, which will go far in making life intolerable for both of them. Together these signs do a lot of talking about things that need doing; each one needs to be paired with a positive personality for anything but talk to get accomplished. This can turn out to be quite interesting connection in case the Virgo is little less demonstrative and affectionate with cancer.

Virgo and Libra Love Compatibility

Virgo lives according to her/his rules while Libra is absolutely different creature. There are also other discrepancies of characters. Virgo is more interested in money, than in sex. Libra finds it inexcusable. Stay-at-home Virgo resents Libra’s socialbutterfly instincts and pursuit of pleasure. Libra’s tastes are expensive. Virgo is careful, not to say miserly. Libra finds Virgo fussy, critical, completely inflexible. Virgo can also be a grumbling and tiresome person with dictatorial propensity. Libra will not stand it too long and start searching for support somewhere else. Virgo, is more straight forward about his/her approach to sex and Libra methods of the “dance” can drive him or her up the wall. This is a doubtful connection and extremely complicated marriage.

Virgo and Taurus Love Compatibility

There will be love at first sight- Both are homebodies and they share the same intellectual pursuits. Virgo, while making love prefers simple ways/positions. The Taurus is not against simplicity, but his/her style in sex can be disturbing for Virgo. But in the other aspects of life they don’t have many problems. Taurus’s tenacity and Virgo’s sharp mind are a good combination for success as a team. And Taurus keeps a careful eye on expenditures, which pleases thrifty Virgo. A good connection is possible, but it demands to be more patient from the representatives of the both signs.

Virgo and Scorpio Love Compatibility

Their interests are the same in many areas, but they are too different when it refers to the sexual sphere. It is difficult for them to establish good relationships. Virgo can become captious. Restrained Virgo has trouble keeping up with highly demonstrative Scorpio and doesn’t understand what all the fuss and bother is about. Scorpio can fly into jealous rages for no reason, even if Virgo has proved to be a faithful mate, and the general Scorpio views are hard for Virgo to take or agree with for Virgo always sees the other side of the situation and the other persons point of view. In other words Scorpio can be roughly frank. The spiritual affinity is possible for some time, and then Scorpio will probably begin to search for new sexual partners. Friendship may be the best idea here.

Virgo and Aquarius Love Compatibility

Both are mental signs rather than emotional, but Virgo looks on the darker side of life while Aquarius is imaginative and optimistic. There is no strong sexual attraction between them. Aquarius needs activity, social events, a wide circle of acquaintances. Virgo enjoys a quiet existence with a few close friends. There will be neither especially strong excitation, nor interesting erotic games. The sober, practical Virgo is inclined to criticize the Aquarius’ generosity. Their goals are very different: Aquarius wants to be as brilliant as possible; Virgo wants to be as efficient as possible. The marriage is possible in case they both have strong feelings towards each other.

Virgo and Capricorn Love Compatibility

Virgo’s neat orderly mind meshes well with Capricorn’s self-discipline and capacity for hard work. Both take pride in their home, enjoy having a few close friends rather than many acquaintances, and admire each other’s intellectual abilities. The Caoricorn’s practicality suits the Virgo’s accuracy perfectly. There are possible misunderstandings in the field of sex, but they know and feel each other so well, that these misunderstandings don’t disturb them. They are both – clever, conservative and patient. This relationship could suffer from lack of romance, as both tend to be a bit reserved in this area. Generally there is a good basis for a long union.

Virgo and Gemini Love Compatibility

Both are Mercury ruled and have a mental approach to life. But similarity ends there; these two are star-crossed from the beginning. Gemini treats Virgo as a boring creature. There are precise representations about sexual behavior in the Virgo’s head. The Gemini will show indecision. After attenuation of passion’s fire Virgo will start to grumble and criticize Gemini. Gemini will start searching for entertainment with someone else in his/her turn. Passions run on a low thermostat; their sex life soon turns chilly. This is going to be as short as flash relationship, which has not a chance to last long time.

Virgo and Virgo Love Compatibility

Both of them are constrained in the sexual relations and consider love as a basis for something more important – partnership in life. They are responsible, sensitive, intelligent, and take love seriously. They also share passions of the mind, and will never bore each other. The requirements in a bedroom are not too great and do not cause many complaints and criticism. Both the intense affair and the marriage are possible in case these perfectionists curb their instincts for finding fault. There will probably also be a continual contest over who is leader, but they have too much else in common for that to matter.

Virgo and Sagittarius Love Compatibility

The Sagittarius’ attitude to love drives Virgo out of his/her mind. The Virgos’ feeling of safety is vanishing. Sagittarius doesn’t try to understand the Virgo’s needs. Elsewhere, Virgo looks for order and simplicity whereas Sagittarius looks for excitement and new experiences. Virgo wants a long term commitment; Sagittarius has to be free to roam. Since Virgo is not one to place too great an emphasis on the sexual side of life and does not have the same appetites that Sagittarius has, Sagittarius may well feel that he or she is justified in finding a new lover from time to time which will cause many fights. They will be able to stay together for a week, but not for the rest of the life.

Virgo and Pisces Love Compatibility

The love is closely connected with the stability, physical needs, intellectual compatibility. The love for the Pisces is a beauty and emotional experiences. The Virgo’s cautious, prudent attitude the to sex doesn’t satisfy unlimited desires of the Pisces . The marriage will probably be unsuccessful.
