Which Star Signs Should Virgo Date?



Which Star Signs does Virgo get along with most easily? What are the best, the worst– and the most intriguing – compatibility matches for Virgo? Which Star Signs should a Virgo man or woman date?

Virgo Compatibility

While Virgo’s practicality and helpfulness make it an easy Star Sign to live with, some people have a hard time getting along with its highly developed critical faculties. For optimum compatibility, Virgo does best with someone who shares its lofty standards in life and isn’t put out by its nit-picking ways.

Signs Most Compatible With Virgo

As a Star Sign ruled by the Element of Earth, the safest bet for a Virgo is probably one of the other two Earth Signs, i.e. TAURUS or CAPRICORN. The favorable 120° – or 4 Signs – spacing between Zodiac Signs in the same Element makes for an especially harmonious relationship and a level of compatibility well above the norm.

Both Taurus and Capricorn are good compatibility matches for Virgo since they share Virgo’s practical, cautious and material approach to life. However, Capricorn probably just beats Taurus as the better compatibility choice for Virgo. Because Capricorn and Virgo are equally diligent and conscientious, they find it relatively easy to cope with each other’s workaholic tendencies.

Really excellent too, in terms of their ability to harmonize with earthy Virgo, while at the same time helping it to develop more sensitivity, are the Water Signs CANCER and SCORPIO, spaced by 60° – or next but one  – from Virgo. Many believe this kind of Earth-Water combination is actually the ideal – and surely it’s no coincidence that a high proportion of successful compatibility matches are between people with birthdays two Zodiac Signs apart.

What About Another Virgo?

So what about another VIRGO as a good compatibility match? On the plus side, you’ll definitely know what makes them tick, since they embody so many aspects of yourself. Especially with a Virgo of the opposite sex, the chances are you’ll be strongly attracted to their best Virgoan qualities – like their intelligence, efficiency and surprising modesty.

But because we don’t tend to like our bad points when we see them reflected in somebody else, there will also be things about Virgo people – most likely their obsessive nit-picking and fault-finding – that you’ll positively hate! If so, better take a long hard look at yourself in the mirror!

Signs Least Compatible With Virgo

The truth is, Virgo, your ideal compatibility match will rarely simply be a clone of yourself (how boring would that be!). But neither, for that matter, should their Star Sign be too astrologically antagonistic to your own.

For this reason, you should be cautious – in the absence of redeeming features – about folk born under the Star Sign of SAGITTARIUS. Because Sagittarius is at a challenging 90° angle (or 3 Sign spacing) from Virgo, the differences between you may be so vast, the chances are these people will be too incompatible with you – and just too much hard work!

Of all the Star Signs, Sagittarius is probably the worst possible compatibility match for Virgo. Due to their extreme diligence and conscientiousness, Virgos may find it harder than just about anyone else to cope with Sagittarius’s happy-go-lucky, maverick ways.

There may also be lesser compatibility challenges with the Signs spaced at 150° (or 5 Signs) from Virgo, i.e. AQUARIUS and ARIES. Although traditionally considered to be ‘awkward’, and involving Signs in conflicting Elements, 150° relationships aren’t necessarily quite as bad, however, as they might appear. Okay, these combinations may not be your first choice, but neither should they be your last. So don’t make the mistake of writing them off as unsuitable – in many cases a love match could work out fine!

Why Opposites Attract

Rather than someone who conflicts with you, Virgo, what you’re really looking for, from a Star Sign compatibility point of view, is the kind of person who is able to balance or complement you in some way. For this reason, the Sign diametrically opposite your own, i.e. PISCES, can be a great compatibility match for you, Virgo.

Opposite Star Signs are often magnetically attracted to each other, their strong yin-yang polarity giving them the potential to complete each other like two halves of a perfect whole. When dating a Pisces, hard-working, conscientious Virgo can benefit from its opposite Sign’s more passive and laid-back approach. Virgo’s critical tendencies are less likely to upset people when it has sweetly forgiving Pisces by its side.

Neighboring Star Signs

Although Virgo is quite different from its immediate neighbors, LEO and LIBRA, in reality it can relate quite well to – and frequently enjoys quite a good level of compatibility with – these Star Signs. This is because people whose Sun Sign is Virgo often have Mercury or Venus – which can never be far from the Sun – in the preceding or following Signs of Leo or Libra. Many Virgo-Leo or Virgo-Libra couples will therefore embody a number of each other’s characteristics and have far more in common than you might initially expect.

Virgo Compatibility ‘Wild Card’

Although not technically recognized as a good compatibility match for Virgo because of the discordant 90° angle, GEMINI can be a popular ‘wild card’ partnership choice for this Sign. Both ruled by Mercury, the planet of intellect, Virgo and Gemini are closely linked at a mental level, possessing the same sharp wit and agility of mind which makes for lively communication – as well as plenty of acrimonious rows! A challenging partnership choice for any Virgo who enjoys a bit of intellectual cut and thrust!

Virgo Best Compatibility Match*: CAPRICORN
Virgo Worst Compatibility Match*: SAGITTARIUS

How Can Virgo Improve Their Compatibility?

To improve their chances of getting on better with every Star Sign, Virgo should focus on showing others less of their most annoying traits, i.e. their over-perfectionism and pickiness, and more of what's most endearing about them, i.e. their kindness and helpfulness. If you're a Virgo, in general everyone will find you easier to live with if you stop complaining and keep your criticisms to yourself. This will be particularly important in the case of Star Sign matches which present the biggest compatibility challenges for a Virgo, as detailed above.
