When Virgo and Pisces come together for love or any kind of relationship, it’s magnetic and nurturing! These two health nuts love holistic healing, which means you both prioritize well-being. Since there is so much care-taking in a Virgo-Pisces relationship, codependency can become an issue.
Virgo and Pisces: Your compatibility clicks and clashes
Where you click:
A healthy obsession? You’re magnetically drawn to each other, and a natural care-taking unfolds from the get-go. Virgo will ply illness-prone Pisces with holistic remedies. Pisces’ compassionate listening skills are chicken soup to Virgo’s neurotic soul. Pisces is the perfect muse for sparking Virgo’s creativity while Virgo provides a grounding energy for Pisces’ flights of fancy. You’re both more productive, inventive, and prosperous as a unit.
Where you clash:
It might take a little time for your relationship to actually solidify into form, however. Virgo’s demands for certainty can chill Pisces’ commitment-phobic heart. The Fish won’t surrender that easily, especially since succumbing to Virgo’s structured plan could lead to a lifetime of control.Pisces DOES like to play the submissive role at times, especially in bed. This is just the excuse bossy Virgo needs to morph into “dominatrix” role and start issuing orders and playfully tormenting Pisces. You’re both prone to making too many sacrifices. Your children will be spoiled, but learn to put up healthy parental boundaries with them so the two of you have energy left over for the occasional (and necessary!) Date Night.
Virgo is earth and Pisces is water
For the most part this is a harmonious blend of two compatible energies. Both earth and water signs seek comfort, security and consistency. The two of you provide that nicely for each other. This is the kind of relationship that can even begin in primary school or college, then last throughout adulthood. You easily slip into a comfortable groove, especially once you live together. Your home can be a cozy, welcoming space—the hub for gathering family and longtime friends. Parenthood can be an area where you shine together, too.
There are differences, of course. The nature of water is emotional, while earth tends to be more grounded and practical. While a water sign might start a sentence with “I feel” an earth sign is probably more responsive to a statement that begins with “I think.” Feelings, to the earth sign, seem random and hard to follow—if there’s a problem in the relationship, the linear earth partner wants you to get to the point so they can figure out how to fix it. Unfortunately, the intuitive water sign doesn’t work that way. They need to process things in a more circular pattern, starting with their emotions and intuition—which, for water, is the most trustworthy guide. The earth sign must learn to respect the water sign’s “gut feelings,” even when they seem to defy sensibility and logic. By contrast, the water sign might want to unpack some of those emotions with a therapist or compassionate friend, rather than with the earth sign partner. Once the water sign gets to the root of what’s bothering them, THEN they can present it in a less emotionally-charged way to the earth sign. The result? The water sign will find a partner eager to problem-solve, rather than a defensive or dismissive person who patronizes them when they’re at their most vulnerable!
You can also get stuck in a rut of doing the same-old things or being fearful of change together.
Earth signs can seem cold or overly harsh, doling out tough love when water sign feels sensitive. The water sign can get clingy and overly dependent, creating a parent-child dynamic. Make an effort not to lapse into these well-worn roles just because it’s easy. You can also get stuck in a rut of doing the same-old things or being fearful of change together. Bringing in a friend, colleague or family member who’s a more dynamic fire or air sign can help. You might even have a child together who’s a fire or air sign. Instead of treating them like the family misfit, allow them to introduce novel ideas to the clan, and respect their greater need for independence.
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 of a different astrological element can be challenging, but also a beautiful opportunity to evolve. After all, differences push you both to grow and step outside of your own experience.
Virgo and Pisces 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 Pisces 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.
Virgo and Pisces are opposite (six signs apart)
In astrology love matches, we also measure compatibility by the aspect, or distance, between the two signs. Your signs are opposite, or six signs apart. Your opposite sign lives directly across the zodiac wheel from you. However, you’ve got more in common than the name suggests. This sign can be highly compatible, even a soul twin match. You each have a distinct role, but you’re a tag team, too. With an opposite sign, you’re challenged to grow as a person and take responsibility for your part of the relationship. It’s like taking a big step back to get a clear perspective of your life. We tend to view things from a close-up, missing the whole picture by hyper-focusing on a detail or two. With an opposite sign, your life appears in full relief, like a finished painting. Suddenly, it all makes sense. This can be a little uncomfortable, but if you’ve manifested an opposite sign partnership, it means you’re ready to grow up.
