Virgo - Scorpio Love Compatibility


The Analyst and the Power-Broker


Relationships between Star Signs two signs apart, like Virgo and Scorpio, seem to enjoy an unusually high long-term success rate. Most likely this is due to their strong bond of friendship, which continues well beyond the point when the sexual chemistry between the two individuals is starting to wane.


Star Signs which are two signs apart from each other, such as Virgo and Scorpio, are ruled by complementary elements, here Earth and Water, and for this reason are traditionally considered to get on very well in a love relationship! What makes these signs so compatible is that the two are linked by sufficient similarities to allow them to function harmoniously together, yet at the same time there are enough differences to provide an alternative perspective and create that all important spark of excitement.

In this case both Virgo and Scorpio have exceptionally high standards, only the best is good enough for them, and each tends to push themselves to the limit in order to reach their goals. Because Virgo and Scorpio are also highly analytical by nature – both being good at cutting through superficiality and getting down to the nitty gritty – there are few problems in life a Virgo-Scorpio couple can't solve together or challenges they can't overcome.

Of course, Virgo and Scorpio are also somewhat unalike in that while Virgo’s strong points are its common sense and practical know-how, Scorpio takes a more intuitive and emotionally sensitive approach. And whereas the perfectionist Virgo is often a big worrier – especially about all the little details – the rock-like Scorpion tends to take everything in its stride without flinching. However, because these traits combine well with each other, Virgo and Scorpio have the potential to be a very successful team!


Although Virgo and Scorpio basically understand – and are acceptant of – each other’s probing, analytical natures, there will be times when Virgo’s relentless fault-finding makes Scorpio fiercely resentful about being told when it is in the wrong – which it may view as not-so-subtle manipulation.

Because Scorpio is so good at concealing its true feelings, matter-of-fact Virgo can make the deadly mistake of overlooking the emotionally complex Scorpion’s deep vulnerabilities. Scorpio has an inborn resistance to all forms of control and domination. It’s also only too self-aware of its weaknesses and shortcomings – which it tries relentlessly to overcome – and doesn’t want to be constantly reminded of them by its hyper-critical Virgo partner. Not until vengeful Scorpio finally lashes back will Virgo will realize its nit-picking has gone way too far.


Sexually, Virgo and Scorpio have much in common, both taking their relationship with each other quite seriously and both having a powerful need for privacy and security. Okay, to cool and collected Virgo, Scorpio's extreme emotional intensity can be a bit too much at times – while to the passionate Scorpion, Virgo can sometimes seem too clinical, aloof or prudish. But given their mutual willingness to work hard at making a success of their sex life, these are issues they can often resolve.


Both these Star Signs have questioning minds and neither is prepared to take anything simply at face value. But while Scorpio is utterly fearless in its thinking, being willing to confront even the most no-go topics and taboos, cautious Virgo tends to be rather more careful and reticent. For Virgo’s refined mental sensitivities, Scorpio can sometimes be rather too extreme in its beliefs and too crudely outspoken in the expression of its opinions.

Perhaps the main mental difference between these two is that as a Mutable Sign, Virgo is far more adaptable in its views than Fixed Sign Scorpio. Scorpio admires Virgo’s critical faculties, but objects to the fact that it is too timid-minded, changes its opinion too frequently, and is unwilling to fully commit. In turn, Virgo complains that Scorpio is too stubborn-minded, and sees things only in terms of black and white.

Striking a balance between Virgo’s no-nonsense practicality on the one hand, and Scorpio’s intuitive, feelings-oriented approach on the other hand is the fundamental challenge of this star sign pairing. Earth sign Virgo must realize there are situations in life which can’t be solved by commonsense alone and require more of a sensitive touch. The emotionally intense Scorpion has to accept just how badly it needs Virgo’s strongly grounding influence to help keep it healthy and sane.

Learning from each other, absorbing some of the other’s best qualities, and adapting to whichever approach is most appropriate in a particular situation, will turn Virgo and Scorpio into a highly effective duo.
