Keep reading for the inside scoop on the general Virgo personality, how they behave in love relationships and which zodiac signs are their best matches!

The Virgo Personality

Virgo is the second earth sign of the zodiac and people born under this element (Taurus & Capricorn) are the builders of the zodiac. They know how to put in hard work to see their efforts come to fruition. Virgo is a mutable sign which means it’s flexible and can see both sides of a situation, unlike a more fixed/stubborn sign like Taurus or Leo. Virgo shares a ruler (Mercury) with Air sign, Gemini. In Roman mythology, Mercury was a messenger god and in astrology is the planet of communication. Although Gemini and Virgo share a ruler, these two signs are very different in nature. I find that Gemini’s influence from Mercury is more centered around verbal communication and connecting with people where as Virgo’s influence from Mercury is more tied to thoughts and mental agility. Not that Virgos aren’t social people, but they’re more likely to be introverted and stuck in their heads. This sign is always thinking and the combination of Mercury and natural Earth sign talents gives them the ability to be extremely detail oriented and thorough. This is where their reputation for being perfectionists comes from. There’s not much that can get past a Virgo. This is a sign that notices details that others would have never noticed so don’t you dare put something of theirs in a spot where it doesn’t belong. They will notice that the misplaced item is gone immediately. Virgo is symbolized by the Virgin which gives a natural innocence and purity to those born under this sign. This is the sign of service so many Virgos love helping people and being of service to others.

Virgos In Relationships

Because Virgos love to help people, this can be beneficial to their partner. This is a sign that you can count on to help you manage the annoying details of life. Many Virgos are great at managing their lives day-to-day, including mundane tasks. But their help doesn’t come without a price. A Virgo partner will expect you to put in hard work and effort everyday because they want to see their partners succeed. Some Virgos have a “different” way of motivating their partners which can come across as “nit-picking.” Virgos do not like laziness and expect the people in their lives to work just as hard as they do. If you’re a person who gets your feelings hurt easily, you’ll have develop a thick skin or Virgo may not be the sign for you. Because they are so gifted at noticing when things are “off” they can’t help but point out the things that their partner needs to change to become “better.” The honest truth?? Virgos are actually very sensitive and just as critical of themselves. They want a partner that is going to push and motivate them because deep down they are perfectionists. When it comes to romance, Virgo has to feel very comfortable with a love partner to open up. This isn’t the most romantic sign in the zodiac, but when inspired, they will give you their all. If Virgo plans a romantic night for you, they will bring out all the bells and whistles and will not miss one detail. They’ll stress themselves out in the process but if it means making their partner happy, they will do it. And don’t be fooled by “the virgin” symbol that represents this sign. Virgos know how to get down in the bedroom – when they are comfortable. Virgos love a challenge so they’ll enjoy a date that requires them to use their brain in some way. Think a murder mystery date (Scorpio would love this too!) or an escape room. And although many may come across as shy, they can definitely talk your ear off as they start to feel more and more comfortable with you. As an earth sign, Virgo is a very loyal partner so flaky people stay away!

Virgo’s Best Matches 

A Virgo woman/man may go back and forth between being the “leader in the relationship or taking a backseat but one thing that is for sure is that they are attracted to confident, motivated and loyal people. The two most obvious matches for Virgo are fellow earth signs, Taurus and Capricorn. All three earth signs know how to commit to things when they really want to, including a relationship. Taurus can help the often anxious and high-strung Virgo to relax and enjoy the finer things in life. Capricorn’s ambition will be a turn on for Virgo who will have met his/her match when it comes to putting in hard work. But with earth sign relationship combinations it is easy for the signs to fall into a rut and only focus on achieving status and/or working. It’s important for Virgo to have some sort of outlet so that they do not experience burn-out.

Since earth and water are complementary elements, Cancer, Scorpio and sometimes Pisces are good matches. Cancer will be able to give Virgo the nurturing he/she needs since Virgos are usually the ones always giving to others. Scorpio will help bring out the sensual side of Virgo and will be a loyal partner. Pisces is Virgo’s opposite sign and although opposites do attract, this can be a hard combination since Pisceans are usually free spirits who go with the flow of life and this is not Virgo’s style. Virgos like to know exactly where they are going. However, this combination could be great for a Pisces that is looking for someone to motivate and add structure to their life. Gemini and Virgo share a sign ruler so there could be a mental connection between these two signs but the longevity of the relationship would need to be determined by other factors in the birth charts. My pick for the worst match for Virgo is Sagittarius. Sagittarians love freedom and spontaneity and Virgo’s regimented lifestyle may not match up with theirs.
