GEMINI - VIRGO LOVE COMPATIBILITY
What are the chances of success of a Gemini-Virgo love match? How compatible are Gemini and Virgo emotionally and sexually – and what are their relationship strengths and challenges?
Well, as far as love compatibility is concerned, traditionally this is considered to be one of the more challenging Sun Sign combinations, with one sign – Gemini – ruled by the element of Air and the other – Virgo – ruled by the conflicting element of Earth. In reality though, things aren't quite as difficult as they might initially appear!
True, tensions can arise due to their different ways of going about things – inconsistently and with a tendency to quickly get bored when someone has the Sun in Gemini, as opposed to rather precisely and conscientiously with a Virgo Sun. In a long-term relationship, Virgo can seem too nit-picking and too much of a workaholic to Gemini, while Virgo may see Gemini as an idle flibberty-gibbet.
But the star signs Gemini and Virgo also have quite a lot in common. Both being ruled by the planet Mercury (the planet of intellect) they are strongly linked at a mental level, possessing the same sharp wit and agility of mind, which makes for lively communication. Provided Virgo can learn to avoid criticizing Gemini’s inattention to detail – and Gemini can adjust to Virgo’s much more exacting approach – there’s actually the potential to function relatively harmoniously together.
GEMINI-VIRGO EMOTIONAL COMPATIBILITY
Emotionally, Gemini and Virgo are quite similar, the responses and reactions of both these signs being governed more by logic and reasoning than by gut feelings. The main difference between them is that while Virgo tends to be an obsessive worrier, Gemini can throw off worries more easily and takes a more light-hearted and witty approach.
Neither Gemini nor Virgo is much good at – or particularly interested in – exploring and expressing deep, complex emotions, preferring to keep their interaction fairly detached and cerebral. While this suits them fine in the short-term, by covering up, or failing to pay sufficient attention to, underlying emotional issues in their relationship, a Gemini-Virgo pair may be storing up trouble for the future.
Only when it is too late, and the hard truths they’ve been trying to avoid finally hit them, may a Gemini-Virgo couple realize that over-rationalizing as a means of explaining away painful feelings they don’t know how to express, isn’t really such a clever idea.
GEMINI-VIRGO SEXUAL COMPATIBILITY
Sexually, Gemini and Virgo aren't among the best matched star signs. Although both have quite a cerebral outlook on love – and both enjoy learning new techniques – Virgo is often too critical and serious about it all for fun-loving Gemini, who can easily get restless. For things to work on a sexual/romantic level, Gemini has to overcome its butterfly tendencies, while Virgo needs to be rather less sensible and loosen up a bit.
GEMINI-VIRGO COMPATIBILITY CHALLENGES
Star signs which are three signs or 90° apart in the Zodiac, like Gemini and Virgo, normally have to contend with a lot of compatibility challenges. But Gemini and Virgo are an important exception to this rule. The strong mental rapport they enjoy due to their joint rulership by Mercury gives them a powerful sense of connection and a much higher compatibility score than would otherwise be the case.
Since there’s such a strong emphasis in this relationship on mental activity, a Gemini-Virgo couple do have to be very careful to avoid brain overload and nervous exhaustion. Too much intellectual activity and not enough calm and relaxation can be harmful to this couple’s wellbeing. To avoid driving each other crazy, both people have to make a big effort to stop over-analyzing everything, and switch off and chill out from time to time.
GEMINI-VIRGO COMPATIBILITY SCORE: 7/10
