When Virgo and Virgo come together for love or any kind of relationship, it’s dynamic and grounding. These two conversationalists also have an affinity for homespun sensuality, which could mean you never want to leave the house! A Virgo-Virgo relationship is intellectually stimulating, since you both understand each other’s analytical and systematic ways.
Virgo and Virgo: Your compatibility clicks and clashes
Where you click:
As Virgos, you’re both dynamic, opinionated conversationalists and the sparks of passion may fly in your initial exchange. At best, you’ll remember that being the sign service CAN apply to lovemaking too. Since you’re both so hands-on, enjoy giving each other full-body massages. Then, turn your crafty natures to planting organic gardens, refurbishing a turn-of-the-century farmhouse, and homeschooling your large brood of children with experimental teaching styles. That homespun energy might just land you a reality show if you get crafty enough!
Where you clash:
Yawn…stretch. Although this relationship may start off as flavorful as a pint of Jamocha Almond Fudge, there’s a risk of it melting down to Vanilla very quickly. Your date nights are romantic and luxurious. Then…the home visits begin. One of you may be a breathtaking packrat, the other an OCD minimalist. Regardless, you both have systems of order and control that you’re in no way eager to surrender. At worst, you’ll ignite each other’s moralizing, goody-goody streak. Enter the imaginary preacher, hovering over your bed while you experience “original sin.” Wait…or was that just your pillow talk?
Virgo 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!
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.
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.
Virgo and Virgo are both mutable signs
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 the case of two mutable signs, it’s non-stop variety and spontaneity. This can make life a grand adventure—one week you’re in Bali, the next you’re in Berlin—but you can also get totally ungrounded as a duo. Who’s gonna create the structure in this relationship? (Zero hands raised.) Making a decision (or even committing!) can also be difficult, since neither of you likes to be locked into anything permanent. This is the couple that’s together for decades, but never “gets around” to marrying. The idea of freedom actually serves as a binding agent between the two of you. (Case study: the mutable match of Sagittarius Brad Pitt and Gemini Angelina Jolie was a global-citizen love story until they relented to tradition and tied the knot.) Sure it’s a bit of a paradox, but that’s the way your signs like it. Mutable signs specialize in communication and discovery. Together, you can be lifelong learners who never run out of topics to talk about. On a bad day, you can be argumentative, flaky and overbooked—your own separate lives may be stuffed to the gills with too many projects, plans and friends, making it hard to find enough quality time together. Be careful not to scatter your energy and spread yourselves too thin in this love match.
Virgo 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 codependent. 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.
Virgo and Virgo are conjunct (the same sign)
In astrology love matches, we also measure compatibility by the aspect, or distance, between the two signs. Your signs are conjunct, or the same sign (zero signs apart). As they say, how can you love somebody else unless you love yourself? If you date or get into a relationship with someone of the same sign, congratulations. You’ve probably embraced your quirks and accepted your humanity. Now, you can celebrate that with a kindred spirit! If you haven’t learned to love yourself, warts and all, this relationship can inspire some crucial self-acceptance. Remember, though: #twinning might be comfortable, but autonomy is important to keep that frisky friction. Maintain some separation between your lives, even if it’s easy to hang out together. Otherwise, passion may cool to a brother-sister vibe.
