Zodiac Signs Compatible with Virgo

Virgo-Aries: low compatibility
This relationship is very difficult, it is not very easy for Aries to understand his partner, since they have very different characteristics, his partner is very impetuous, intolerant and does not have much patience. In this relationship one brings the mental perspective while the other is the action itself.
Virgo-Taurus: excellent compatibility
Both signs share the same element and manage to understand each other very well. Both Virgo and Taurus are concrete and practical. Although Taurus has a hard time manifesting freely, and his partner is very sensual and passionate, they can find a good balance. The analytical conditions of the first and the application of the second member are combined.
Virgo-Gemini: low compatibility
In this relationship both are very rational but the manifestation in front of life is totally different. Virgo needs time and loneliness to understand things and this disorients his partner, who has a tendency to minimize everything. It is very important to develop communication so that the couple can move forward.
Virgo-Cancer: excellent compatibility
These signs complement each other very well. The different moods through which Virgo passes, are contained and protected by his sensitive partner. With the help of Cancer, Virgo manages to recognize and enjoy everything positive that surrounds him, but he must respond to the needs of his partner and not neglect it.
Virgo-Leo: acceptable compatibility
In this relationship there are marked differences, Virgo seeks the approach through the intellect, while his partner springs joy and the ability to enjoy in a very natural way. Although Leo has a very strong character, Virgo’s capacity for dialogue causes great changes in attitude.
Virgo-Virgo: good compatibility
In this relationship the same interests are shared, both have much to discover, and help each other. The permanent restlessness within the couple makes them run the risk of falling into superficiality, since the focus on a single issue is difficult. The opinions and ideas contributed by both help to carry forward the couple.
Virgo-Libra: acceptable compatibility
Good understanding is presented in this relationship. Obfuscations will come when Virgo does not respond to his partner’s sentimental needs, knowing that he needs love in an essential way. To carry forward the Virgo couple must make the effort to surrender without any reluctance.
Virgo-Scorpio: excellent compatibility
One represents the intellect and the other the action, but sometimes in the relationship the functions of each one are confused, and when these overlap it is when the inconveniences arise. In any aspect of the relationship, agility is manifested in the intellect and action.
Virgo-Sagittarius: low compatibility
This relationship is made up of totally different personalities. The introverted and analytical character of Virgo does not match the free, optimistic, adventurous and full-fledged character that characterizes Sagittarius. For the relationship to thrive, it is important that Virgo begin to understand and enjoy the joy of his partner.
Virgo-Capricorn: excellent compatibility
In some aspects these signs are quite different, but they can complement each other. Virgo offers the observation of things and Saturn offers the execution of them. Virgo’s solidity will benefit from Capricorn’s vivacity, but sometimes understanding is broken when Virgo shows a very introverted stance.
Virgo-Aquarius: low compatibility
These signs are not compatible at all, if the links are based on mental activities, they are very important. Virgo seeks, through understanding, the meaning, functioning and usefulness of things; but Aquarius seeks constant transformation. Virgo has a hard time understanding the slowness that his partner shows at times.
Virgo-Pisces: good compatibility
This combination has many differences, but they complement each other very well. Both have the ability to give each other what they want. Virgo is the one in charge of making Pisces put his feet on the ground, and Pisces teaches him how beautiful it is to enjoy life without applying so much analysis.
