Virgo - Aries Love Compatibility




Virgo and Aries 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 – Virgo – ruled by the element of Earth and the other – Aries – ruled by the conflicting element of Fire. 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 a little impulsive in the case of Aries – cautious, diligent, and maybe a bit 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, they 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, Virgo and Aries 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.


Some very basic differences in the mental outlook of these two Star Signs can make both people uncomfortable with each other at times. Aries tends to chance to luck when deciding on an appropriate action, whereas Virgo needs to feel all the details have been worked out beforehand, or it gets very worried..

The Ram comes up with spur of the moment ideas and wants to put them into action immediately, which can be highly disconcerting for Virgo, who always insists on thinking a plan through very carefully and studying the fine print first.

Virgo is by far the more analytical of these two and, in Aries’s eyes, far too picky and cautious. Aries has a much more instinctive and spontaneous way of thinking, which to Virgo often seems foolishly rash and impulsive. Both people will need to make a lot of adjustments to compensate for their contrasting mental styles.


The best chance of success for a Virgo-Aries 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.
