When Taurus and Virgo come together for love or any kind of relationship, it’s grounding but also a bit neurotic! These two sensual creatures shower each other in affection and gifts, which can sometimes lead to disagreements over spending. A Taurus-Virgo relationship is stabilizing since you are both earth signs.
Taurus and Virgo: Your compatibility clicks and clashes
Where you click:
Pump up the slow jams! It’s a match made in earth sign heaven when sensual Taurus meets generous Virgo. You’ll spoil each other with creature comforts and affection will never be in short order. Taurus maps out the master plan for how the relationship unfolds: budget, first house, children, large family wedding (not necessarily in that order). Virgo happily steps in to serve that vision, bringing new meaning to domestic bliss.
Where you clash:
Taurus’ tastes run toward the finer things while Virgo will happily scoop up necessities from the local Goodwill. The difference in your material values can become problematic unless Taurus cools down the label-whoring and Virgo is willing to be polished and refined a bit. The medicine cabinet may be a source of contention as Taurus overloads on beauty products and Virgo obsessively collects herbal remedies and prescriptions. Yes, you’re both a tad neurotic…especially when it comes to aging. Find outside interests that keep you feeling young, so your fears of fine lines don’t become a gorge that divides you from one another.
Taurus and Virgo are both earth signs
Home sweet home…or humdrum? As two grounded earth signs, you are both seeking security, consistency and a bond that’s built to last. Tradition and integrity are important—in each other, you find the stability you crave. Soon enough, you’ll ease into pleasant routines and rituals together. Structure and routine come naturally to earth signs. Whether you’re running a business or a family together, your ability to “keep it simple” is one of your shared earthy superpowers. This rock-solid combo can create a lovely legacy that stands the test of time. The challenge? Getting stuck in a rut. Your life can become stagnant if you don’t refresh your worldview periodically by traveling, learning new philosophies or inviting fresh faces into your circle. Together, you may become too iron-fisted and conservative, which others will find intimidating. Because the earth element rules the physical world, you can also become overly materialistic and status-driven. Or you may indulge your senses by eating, drinking and accumulating possessions, forgetting to work on spiritual and emotional development. Too much of the tried-and-true can also prevent you from evolving with the times. Earth-sign pairings must view change and risk as an opportunity rather than a threat. Compromise is also a skill that needs extra work here. Earth signs stand their ground, but they can also stubbornly dig in their heels. If you turn that intractable nature on each other, it can be an endless war—with nobody willing to budge!
Spending time with friends, coworkers or relatives of another element can introduce a more balancing energy.
There are four elements in astrology: fire, earth, air and water. Each one plays an important role in the greater whole of humankind. A love match with someone from the same astrological element offers the comfort of familiarity. At last, you don’t have to explain yourself all the time! You both operate at similar speeds to a certain degree. As lovely as that is, it can also be “too much of a good thing,” causing your relationship to feel like a single track on continuous replay. After all, differences can be challenging in a good way because they push you both to grow.
As a same-element couple, you may need to make a conscious effort to not get stuck in a rut or even a competitive dynamic. Spending time with friends, coworkers or relatives of another element can introduce a more balancing energy. For example, an adventurous fire sign friend could get you to try physical challenges or take a risk at work. A thoughtful air sign might get you out of a stubborn rut, helping you view things from a different perspective.
Taurus is fixed and Virgo is mutable
In astrology, the “qualities” or “triplicities” reveal the role you play in a relationship or collaboration. Are you a starter, a doer or a finisher? Do you like to take charge and have a plan, or do you prefer to go with the flow? In this love match, it can be hard to get in sync. Can we make a plan around here? Fixed signs crave stability and mutable signs love change. Compromise is key so you don’t drive each other crazy! The fixed sign in this relationship likes to make a decision or plan and stick with it. By contrast, the ever-changing mutable sign is always changing things—adding one more guest, jamming one more coffee date into their day, starting another project before they finish the 50 they already have going. When a mutable-fixed duo plays to their strength, the fixed sign can create a solid structure that upholds the mutable sign’s creative plans. Adaptable mutable signs help the fixed sign to be less rigid—to loosen up and go with the flow. For long-term success, the mutable mate will have to work harder at keeping their word, showing up on time and being consistent. Some plans are simply non-negotiable! In exchange the fixed sign will have to give an inch and be willing to try new things.
Taurus and Virgo are both yin, or feminine signs
In astrology, every sign has a “polarity”: you’re either yin (feminine) or yang (masculine). You are both yin signs: receptive, sensitive and intuitive. When all is good, you are deeply simpatico, nurturing one another and sharing romantic, thoughtful gestures. The downside? Your fluctuating moods may collide, causing dramatic fights that can escalate into an unnecessary cold war. You can also get SO tuned into each other’s emotions that your bond turns codepedent. While it’s lovely to build a cozy cocoon, make sure you don’t get stuck in that bubble and stunt each other’s personal growth.
Taurus and Virgo are trine (four signs apart)
In astrology love matches, we also measure compatibility by the aspect, or distance, between the two signs. Your signs are trine, or four signs apart. In this love match, it can feel like “home sweet home” The trine sign mate has the same element as yours (fire, earth, air or water), creating an unspoken kinship and harmony. At last—you don’t have to constantly explain yourself. You’ve never felt so comfortable, so understood on a core level. This is the person you can burp and pass gas around, or use the bathroom with the door open when they’re home. But don’t invest in a wardrobe full of elastic waistbands just yet. In trine relationships, you’ll need to preserve some mystery to keep things exciting. Make sure you stay active and on the go, and don’t do everything together. A little autonomy goes a long way to keep the passion alive.
