Well, we all know about Virgos, don’t we? Stuffy, uptight hypochondriacs who won’t say boo to a goose and who will forever be downtrodden spouses – if they have a relationship at all – right? No! Virgo is one of the most misunderstood of all the zodiac signs, so forget all the clichés you’ve heard about The Virgin. This is one maiden whose purity is not quite what it might seem. As an earth sign, Virgo lovers are highly sensual, deeply loving and eternally loyal, so the good news it that for you, Virgo, compatibility with other star signs is pretty high in general.
Most of the misconceptions about Virgo stem from the fact that you’re a very private person, and a modest one too. You don’t shout about your relationships from the rooftops, and you don’t flaunt your sexuality either, so it’s easy for the rest of us to imagine you as cold, aloof and alone. In fact, you love very deeply indeed and hope for a lasting relationship every bit as much as every other star sign, and with your kindness and willingness to help others, many are attracted to your enigmatic nature. Virgo compatibility actually has a lot to do with the mystery surrounding you. Your mythological archetype is the healer, and there is much hidden wisdom in your sign. Because you’re generally a quiet person, people are intrigued by you, especially when they see flashes of the passion that lies within.
At your best, as a Virgo lover you are highly intelligent, intuitive, practical, loyal and utterly devoted to your partner. You will do absolutely anything you can to love and support him or her, even to the point of sacrificing your own interests. Selfless and deeply caring, your Virgo compatibility works best with a water or earth sign who will appreciate the depths of support you offer and will lavish you with affection in return. Air signs can be a good match too, but fire signs can be too wild, too domineering and too disrespectful for your tastes.
If you’ve ever read an astrology compatibility report about your Virgo relationship, you’ll know one of your principal issues in love is your critical nature – because yes, that bit is true, you do nag. Crucially, however, you don’t just nag others, you nag yourself, and you are your own worst critic. It’s this which can hold back your own self-confidence, and it’s the lack of self-confidence which can cause you problems in starting a relationship to begin with. An Astromatcha star sign compatibility report or birth chart can help show you where your strengths lie and how you can easily maximise them in love and in life. Virgo compatibility is strong with many signs, but like all relationships, there are things you can work on.
It’s important that you don’t try to change your partner, Virgo – they are who they are, so love them for who they are rather than trying to change them. Your criticisms can be harsh and hurtful, but even if you curb that your inner sense of worry over your partner can express itself within the relationship, suffocating and damaging it. Keep the channels of communication open to maximise Virgo compatibility – talk about your feelings with your partner, rather than bottling them up, but make sure that you’re listening too.
When it comes to your sex life, despite the misconceptions about your sign, you as a Virgo have a healthy sexual appetite. You don’t do casual sex, and you have to feel loved before you’re willing to shed those inhibitions, but with the right partner you enjoy a tender, romantic sex life – and Virgo, surprisingly, can have some of the kinkiest “interests” of the whole zodiac, when safely behind closed doors! Virgo compatibility in the bedroom is less about sex drive and more about feeling the emotional security and love necessary to loosen up. Privacy is important too, so living with in-laws or having kids running around will temporarily close off some bedroom high jinks, but once sanity is restored, so will be the Virgo sex drive.
Some astrology compatibility reports make much of Virgo’s over analysis of emotions, and it is true that you can sometimes analyse a relationship half to death. You do have an incisive mind, however, and you cut to the point in any arguments, so with mutual respect and a willingness to try ever so, ever so hard not to nag, your analytical mind is actually a positive boost to Virgo compatibility as it means your relationship is less likely to get hung up on words unspoken.
