Aquarius - Virgo Love Compatibility




Aquarius and Virgo may not be the best ever Star Sign pairing! But they’re a great example of an apparently mismatched couple who – with a little patience and mutual give and take – can actually learn to thrive on their differences and achieve a good level of love compatibility.


As far as love compatibility is concerned, some people see this as one of the more challenging Star Sign combinations, with one sign – Aquarius – ruled by the element of Air 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 – methodical, analytical and quite critical in the case of Virgo – open-minded, unconventional and perhaps a little eccentric in the case of Aquarius – can give rise to some major disagreements.

In a long-term relationship, the Aquarian's love of freedom and variety can sit uncomfortably with Virgo's carefully ordered schedule, while to carefree Aquarius, the Virgin's perfectionist streak can be a huge pain in the ass.

But because Aquarius and Virgo are linked by a common desire to make the world a better place, there’s no reason why they can’t cooperate successfully. Free-thinking Aquarius can give Virgo a broader and more open-minded perspective on major social and political issues; in turn practical, hard-working Virgo can help Aquarius to translate its non-conformist ideas into concrete reality.


Cool-headedness, reasonableness and detachment are the common emotional trademarks of the star signs Aquarius and Virgo. Since Aquarius is a logical Air sign and Virgo is ruled by Mercury (the planet of intellect), their emotional responses are governed more by logic than by gut feelings.

This keeps the emotional interaction between an Aquarius-Virgo couple on quite a steady note – big emotional dramas aren’t really their thing and where love is concerned, they tend to be fairly sensible and level-headed.

The downside, however, is that an Aquarius-Virgo relationship may be sadly lacking in warmth, spontaneity and passion. Aquarius also has more of a taste for excitement than Virgo and may sometimes rebel against the Earth sign’s more cautious and conservative ways.


Sexually, Aquarius and Virgo don't always click initially: security-conscious Virgo may complain that Aquarius is too unpredictable, too irresponsible and too unwilling to commit to a monogamous relationship, while to the uninhibited Aquarian – who loves to experiment with sex – Virgo's rather more traditional and self-conscious approach can seem a bit staid and boring.

For things to work sexually between these two, Aquarius has to be prepared to sacrifice some of its independence, while Virgo needs to loosen up a bit and learn a few new tricks!


Both these Star Signs have a very detached way of thinking and both are good at keeping troublesome emotions out of important decision-making and problem-solving processes. But despite this, their discussions often go nowhere because Virgo tends to be obsessed with analyzing every little detail, while Aquarius has no time for such trivialities, and would rather focus on the big picture.

When faced with two contrasting choices, cautious Virgo will always opt for the safer bet, while Aquarius would rather take the road less travelled and experiment with something totally new. Being the more adaptable of the two, it’s usually Virgo who gives way in the event of disagreements. As a Fixed Sign, Aquarius is far more insistent on sticking to its guns.


The main compatibility challenges between Aquarius and Virgo center around the following questions:

Will the play-if-safe Earth sign end up stifling the forward-thinking Aquarian’s unquenchable thirst for novelty and excitement? Are Aquarius’s wacky ideas way too impractical and far-out for its feet-on-the-ground partner? Will conscientious Virgo be left doing all the work and carrying all the dreary responsibilities, while freedom-loving Aquarius enjoys a thrilling and fancy-free existence?

Only if both people have a live-and-let-live outlook and are very tolerant of each other, is an Aquarius-Virgo relationship likely to prove successful in the long run.
