Aries - Virgo Love Compatibility



What are the chances of success of an Aries-Virgo love match? How compatible are Aries and Virgo emotionally and sexually – and what are their relationship strengths and challenges?

As far as love compatibility is concerned, some people see this as one of the more challenging Sun Sign combinations, with one sign – Aries – ruled by the element of Fire and the other – Virgo – ruled by the conflicting element of Earth. In reality though, things aren’t necessarily quite as difficult as they might initially appear!

True, a fundamentally different approach to life – enthusiastic, go-ahead and impulsive in the case of Aries – cautious, diligent, and a little pedantic in the case of Virgo – can give rise to disagreements and some mutual criticism. In a long-term relationship, the Ram's compulsive need for personal freedom can sit uncomfortably with Virgo's strong work ethic, while to cavalier Aries, the Virgin's perfectionist streak can be a huge pain in the ass.

But if each accepts they have much to gain and benefit from the other, Aries and Virgo can cooperate successfully on their common goal of achievement. From Aries – a confident risk-taker – Virgo can learn to stop worrying about minor details and take a few more chances. In turn, conscientious Virgo can teach Aries to work harder and develop more discipline and self-restraint.

Aries’s tendency to blithely rush in where angels fear to tread can be intensely irritating to painstaking Virgo, who prefers to plan everything in minute detail before taking any kind of action. While Aries enjoys taking risks, and is unfazed by the prospect of sometimes making mistakes, Virgo gets extremely uptight at the prospect of ever getting things wrong.

But perhaps the biggest problem here is that volatile Aries is largely unaware of – and unbothered by – the damage its fiery temper can wreak on Virgo’s sensitive nervous system. To remain emotionally unscathed by this relationship, Virgo will have some major adjustments to make.


Sexually, Aries and Virgo don't always click at first. The raunchy Ram may complain that Virgo is lacking in passion, too cool and analytical and takes an overly clinical approach, while to Virgo, Aries' lovemaking can seem too rough and ready and lacking in finesse. To make things work, Aries has to learn to pay more attention to detail sexually, while Virgo needs to warm up a bit and be rather less prissy.


The best chance of success for an Aries-Virgo love match is for the two people to exploit their personality differences to their joint advantage and work together as a team. Irrespective of gender, ideally the Aries individual should be the one to wear the pants in this relationship and go out and do battle in the big bad world, while the Virgo plays more of a behind-the-scenes, organizational role and takes care of the practical details.
