Gemini and Virgo Love Compatibility

Gemini and Virgo are big thinkers and talkers, which gives them a good rapport at the outset. Their minds light up with such a witty companion, and soon there's a vigorous stream of ideas passing back and forth. They offer reviews of movies, books, restaurants, political commentary, and opine into the evening.

But while Virgo is precise, Gemini's communication style is like an aerated mist, spraying everywhere.  If Virgo is self-conscious, they relax with Gemini's theatrical improv performance.  It takes awhile before Gemini's range is revealed, and also what appears to Virgo as a lack of cohesion. 

Soon, Virgo may start to wonder if Gemini is a bit of a loose cannon. Things turn sour when Gemini picks up on Virgo's critical vibe. Gemini throws caution to the wind, while Virgo prefers things to be planned out.

Gemini in love is socially light, and erratic in behavior, due to their quixotic personality.

Virgo in love seeks stability in the routine and is often thrown off balance by too much information.

Careful and Carefree

Both are Mercury-ruled, and with lots of understanding, could benefit long-term from the different slant of the other. Gemini helps Virgo think outside the box. Virgo's focus brings clarity and helps Gemini direct its mental surges. A sticking point is spontaneity -- since it's what Gemini thrives on and what sends Virgo into nervous spasms of worry.

If your Mercury signs are compatible, that could bring ease to the communication, that is critical for both Sun signs. The need to be understood is a must, for each to feel that it's worth the investment.

Keep in mind that Virgo and Gemini square each other, and this creates natural tension. Sometimes this is deliciously edgy, for others, it's crazy making. Both Virgo and Gemini have sensitive nervous systems, and so extra TLC is advised. Together you can come up with ways to spin and unravel the anxious knots of the day. 

One way to make first dates memorable is to keep them low key and away from the maddening crowd.  The right atmosphere puts you both in a mellow mood, where you get beyond being frazzled.  

Earth and Air

One way to see these signs as a match is to consider that they're incompatible elements -- air and earth.  Air signs are detached and might have a visionary bent that makes them unrealistic. But this is part of their way, as they experiment with ideas, and then see which ones work in real life.

Virgo is an earth sign coming from a grounded experience. Virgo would like to escape into fantasy land but is often hyper-alert to what needs to be done. 

Virgo wants Gemini to show up on time, and craves the familiar, having a routine. Gemini bores easily, and prefers to keep things "up in the air."  Virgo will not abide by a Gemini that comes over when the mood hits.  Likewise, Gemini will find Virgo's overtalking things, before doing them, wearying. 

It's a meeting of minds, but they may not find a deeper reason to be together. For this to endure, they'll have to apply their sharpness and ability to analyze to the built-in conundrum of their clashing personae.
