The Maiden in Relationships
It is hard to pass the test that Virgo makes before committing to any partnership, whether love or another kind. Until someone meets with all the demands, Virgo prefers short term relations where neither one is particularly serious. But the one approved will own Virgo’s heart, most likely for quite long.

Who Will Do for Virgo?
Compatibility with other Star Signs depends on much more than similarities. Virgo, the scrutineer of the Zodiac, belongs to the element earth, which is that of material things and working with your hands. So do Taurus and Capricorn, but that doesn’t necessarily mean Virgo is particularly compatible with them – they need to feel mutual connections and similarities.
Nor for that matter is Virgo always incompatible with, say, the air signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius, although they are quite different. Actually, differences are important in a relationship. If there are few of them, both will be bored with one another.
That’s the most evident when the astrological qualities – cardinal, fixed, and mutable – are compared. Each Zodiac sign has one of those qualities. Virgo in mutable, which means a follower, always ready for change and variety. That blends rather well with other mutable signs in a relationship, if they have patience to discover that in each other. They are Gemini, Sagittarius, and Pisces. They have similar impatience and curiosity, but that also means they may run past each other without even noticing this similarity. And they still need to meet with Virgo’s approval, which is hard to get.
Virgo is rather compatible with the cardinal signs, which are the leaders taking the initiative. They like change as well, as long as they decide on it. They are Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. Such a relationship, with one leader and one follower, is at least mostly smooth. But of course, there can be other issues. One big issue with Virgo is always the scrutiny – there is a decisive refusal to accept anyone or anything not passing the test. Cardinal signs are not comfortable with having to explain and defend themselves.
With the fixed signs, uneager or slow to change, Virgo easily gets impatient, even frustrated. Having things the same as before makes no sense to Virgo unless they are perfect. In Virgo’s mind, nothing is. There is always room for improvement. But the relation may work if the partner can handle some criticism, and at least minor adjustments. The fixed signs are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.
But nothing is written in stone. A relationship is complex. There is no guarantee as to what will work and what will not, especially at length. All the personality traits of each Zodiac sign have to be considered when examining their compatibility in astrology.
Virgo Compatibility in General
Generally speaking, Virgo is difficult to attract and even more difficult to seduce. This is a lover that seems impossible to please. Nothing is right, nothing suffices. But Virgo has the same demands – or higher – internally. What the partner feels is what Virgo attempts: perfection. Not as an art form shining of inspiration, but as a set standard. What doesn’t reach it isn’t for real.
A relationship with Virgo becomes a kind of competition of finding faults on the other. Virgo seeks constant improvement and correction, as if love is a test ending with a certain grade.
Some partners quickly lose all sense of attraction to Virgo, but others see that it’s all for the best, so they persevere, even though it’s not altogether pleasant. Still, Virgo means business, so a serious relationship is around the corner.
When that’s reached, love blossoms and both Virgo and the partner can enjoy the situation wholeheartedly. Then they taste satisfaction of a deeper kind than what’s normally the case. So, there are many who feel it’s all worth it.
