Virgo and Virgo Love Compatibility

Virgo and Virgo together magnetize the natural traits of this lovable earth sign. And, it must be said, two Virgins make for a whole lot of finely tuned relating.

It comes with a family pack of what Virgo does in volume -- analyzing, criticizing, self-improvement planning, organizing, fretting. Two Virgos could amplify the nerves of the sensitive nervous systems.  But only another Virgo understands what it takes to stay 'pure' and what drives the Virgin to stay "whole unto themselves."

This can be a perfect love, as long as the Virgin realizes that perfecting the self in love, is a worthy direction, but not a destination. Sun Virgos together activate the desire for perfection, and that can become a busy, edgy preoccupation. Making time for ease, contentment and doing things just for fun, makes this pairing last. Finally, Virgo in love is sincere, and on time for meet-ups.

Precision Dating

The dating period is tender and tentative, and both arrive on the dot. There's a concern for etiquette in the beginning that lends some refinement to what can be an awkward time. Virgo needs lots of reassurance, and this is something they offer each other, as a way to build trust.

They admire the clean-as-a-whistle physical presence, and offer the same "virginal" landscape, though we all know Virgo is a very earthy, sensual sign. Once there is intimacy, these two have the skills to satisfy, and open up to earthly pleasures together.

At home, the Virgo stereotype of being tidy finds full expression, and together they can keep making refinements. They'll both want to live simply, sensibly and as close to natural elements as possible. They're a couple that may want to live 100% organic, and may have an interest in gardening. But they'll need to take breaks from the self-improvement agenda, or risk crowding out spontaneity.

Control Freaks

Virgo's dark side is the tendency to be the constant critic, which actually comes from a gift -- the ability to see what needs changing. The Virgo-Virgo couple will need to cultivate acceptance for who they are at any given moment.

Too much emphasis on the plans for progress can put them in high stress mode, and tax an already nervous system.

Hobbies and Games

It's important for them to find ways to relax and be in the moment, and go off in the country for a change of scenery. All work and no play makes them stressed out, and too tense to stop and smell the roses along the way. Both need lots of solitude to find wholeness again, and that's another key to making the relationship work.

Virgo is ruled by Mercury -- that's why they're so mercurial. They come alive with mind food, and challenges to the intellect. You'll learn a lot about your Virgo by finding out their Mercury Sign.

Virgos love to learn and often have many hobbies that involve daily practice. Virgo is a mutable sign, making it one geared to sampling activities, "trying your hand" at something.

Cultivating these together, especially when it's fun, too, is love superglue. If you've grown apart, look for new challenges that thrill you both, and sign up for a class or intro session.
