Happy Birthday, Virgo! Have you ever wondered which of your favourite celebrities you’d actually be friends with? While the Sun is in Virgo from August 23rd to September 22nd, we are shining some light on the Virgos so we can learn about compatibility. It’s great to be equipped with the wisdom of the stars, so we decided to use celebrity stars to help you learn!
Learning about astrological compatibility will help you understand why Virgos often get along with certain types of people easier than others. If you’re new to astrology, here is a little bit about Virgo before we get started.
Virgo is an Earth element sign, which means Virgos are practical, salt-of-the-Earth people. Virgo, in particular, always wants to make sure there is a detailed and organized plan for everything. They are clean, sharp, meticulous, and natural caregivers. They can be so thorough that they are prone to perfectionist tendencies.
This zodiac sign is depicted by the symbol of a maiden (the only woman depicted in the zodiac). They are known for their love of problem-solving and will almost always have a schedule or itinerary to follow for the day.
Virgo Season is Upon Us!
As we celebrate the birthdays of the Virgos in our lives, it’s exciting to understand just what makes this sign tick. A great way to understand how Virgo’s unique energy fits into the world is to notice that they often gravitate towards signs of the same element (Taurus, Capricorn, and other Virgos). This is by and large a general rule and not a hard and fast rule. We must remember to look at the entire birth chart to find the unique traits that make one Virgo different from another.
However, it’s really fun to dive into birthday compatibility as a way of seeing not only how accurate astrology is in predicting the types of people that Virgos jive with but it can also give you some great conversation starters. It can even help us play matchmaker, which can be lots of fun. But don’t limit this to romance, astrological compatibility can apply to friends, family, and coworkers as well.
As we look at Virgo compatibility, don’t let your mind narrow into thinking that these are the only people Virgos can ever date or will ever get along with. Even the non-compatible signs are able to get along with Virgos if both parties are self-aware, willing to work on their challenges and bad habits, and are knowledgeable about how to construct a bridge between their personalities in ways that complement both people and help them to leave their comfort zones.
Which Signs are Compatible With Virgo & Why? Find Out Below!
Virgos are creatures of comfort and prefer routine to spontaneity. This is evident in the types of signs they tend to be compatible with. Virgos are compatible with signs that will match their lifestyle. Because a Virgo is a planner, they have trouble meshing with people who are overly spontaneous. A Virgo is more likely to stick to their long-term goals and so they can certainly find things in common with other signs that have that same sense of determination and perseverance.
While Virgos may not seem all that creative, it doesn’t mean they don’t have creativity somewhere else prominently in their chart. Don’t let generalized statements about personalities make you start putting people in boxes. Many Virgos make great artists because of their attention to detail. The Sun sign is merely the core or foundational personality, but there are many more dimensions to a person’s psyche.
Let’s look at the traits of 3 signs it will be easiest for Virgos to gel with.
Cancer, Taurus, & Capricorn
Virgo’s are known to be compatible with Cancers. Cancers tend to be a bit emotional which can allow Virgos to itch their scratch of being a mothering type. The Cancer, symbolized by the crab who can retreat into its shell, is also a creature of comfort. They love the home and value family. As a Water sign, they are also nurturing like the Virgo. They can relate to each other because they both have an innate urge to help others and they both often have difficulty knowing when they are giving too much of themselves.
Next, we have another Earth element sign, Taurus. Virgos can relate to Taurus in that they both like a clean house. Taurus’s ruling planet is Venus, the planet of beauty and art. The Taurus is known to be someone who allows themselves to indulge in the pleasures of the senses so they will go the extra mile to make sure that their environment has sweet-smelling flowers, interesting wallpaper or art and they are just as pragmatic as the Virgo because they both tend to keep their feet firmly planted on the earth.
Finally, we have Earth sign Capricorn, who are also known to be besties for Virgos because of their pragmatism and ability to see long-term projects through with thoroughness. The Capricorn is known to be the hardest working sign in the zodiac and they are also loyal just like the Virgos. This could make a great business partner or mentor in addition to a life partner.
Virgo Ultimate Sign Match: Scorpio
You know those people who seem to have an irresistible magnetism for you? Well for Virgo’s it’s often Scorpios. It may be that they are sort of polar opposites and that is where the attraction lies. They seek to know what they aren’t good at naturally and to pull that trait out of themselves, they seek the unknown. In this case, a Scorpio is usually much less conservative than the calculated Virgo. A Scorpio is unlikely to have much structure or plan to their day because they are often exploring ideas in their mind or pursuing their latest muse.
We often are drawn to those that pique our interest and find their behaviour and way of thinking interesting because it is foreign. The Scorpio which is known to be the most sexual zodiac sign can probably help the Virgo open up. Similarly, the Virgo can help the Scorpio’s intense intellectual curiosities find some structure and make sure they don’t get lost in their ideas without taking care of the basics like doing laundry and paying bills.
What Signs Should Virgos Be Cautious Of?
Don’t let this scare you Virgos when it comes to relationship compatibility. It’s just going to require more understanding and compassion for a Virgo to get along with these four signs. Not that it’s impossible. It could be viewed as the signs that could offer you Virgos the most growth. Virgo’s don’t naturally think the same as these signs and they will find they often like to spend their time differently when it comes to hobbies and goals.
If a Virgo wanted to date one of these signs they would need to clearly understand what is important to them and be able to voice their own needs. Anything is possible with the right intention and enough love and kindness as long as both parties are game to work on it!
Sagittarius, Gemini, Aries, & Aquarius
Sagittarius is a sign known to be spontaneous and even sometimes irresponsible because they are always seeking adventure. This could give Virgos anxiety because they don’t usually operate that way at all. A Sagittarius is also inclined to be very philosophical, which is not usually in the nature of a Virgo; of course, a Virgo could have Sagittarius in other parts of their chart and they may find some common ground.
Gemini is known to be a bit scatterbrained because they have so many ideas in their minds at once. They may not finish projects, which can drive Virgos nuts. A Virgo may have trouble with Gemini’s playfulness which rules their time instead of their practicality.
Aries is a sign that speaks directly and sometimes seems harshly because they always say how they feel, whereas Virgo will often keep helping people even when they aren’t treated fairly. The approach they take in communication is quite opposite of the other, as is the speed at which they want to get things done. A Virgo takes their time and an Aries wants things done quickly.
Aquarius can clash with Virgos because of their big and often quirky ideas. Aquarians are known to be optimistic and push past potential roadblocks at all costs. They are less inclined to think about what could go wrong and motivated by their idealism and the cause in their hearts. A Virgo, being grounded, wants to make sure any plans are safe and well thought out before taking action, and this is where these 2 signs can potentially butt heads.
