Love Horoscopes: Zodiac Sign Compatibility For Aries And Virgo

What's your sign, baby? How Sun Signs influence a love match between impulsive, fun loving Aries and cautious, romantic Virgo.

Love and astrology have been inextricably linked ever since people first fell in love under a starry sky. Visit the Astrology section of any modern bookstore and you will see rows of titles concerning Love Horoscopes. Why is this subject so popular?

The answer lies in the influence that our Astrology Sun Sign has on our personality, and therefore our love style.

Everyone comes into the world with an individual horoscope or natal chart showing the positions of the planets during the exact time, date and location of birth. The most popular horoscope method, based on the Sun Sign, is concerned with which Zodiac Sign the Sun was in at that most important time, influencing our choices and behavior in relationships.


Before we look at the compatibility between Aries and Virgo, let's first briefly examine the two signs individually.

Aries: (March 21st- April 19th) Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac. Aries represents the number one, the wee hours of the morning, the season of spring. Aries is considered a masculine sign. Aries rules the head, which is evident by the symbol of the Ram, who often lock horns during a disagreement. Aries is a Cardinal Sign and rules the first house of the natal chart, representing the self. A typical Aries (no matter what their age) looks at life through the eyes of a newborn. Aries is action, excitement and impulse. Aries looks at the big picture and sometimes rushes and cut corners. Aries does not always read the fine print. Aries is ruled by Mars...the ancient god of War. Aries' element is fire and its color is Red. Many people with their Sun is in Aries look particularly good in all shades of red. This color complement is perhaps due to red matching Aries' bright, colorful personality.

Virgo (August 23-September 22) Virgo is the sixth sign of the Zodiac. Virgo represents purity; discrimination Virgo's season is the end of summer heading into the first of fall. Virgo is considered a feminine sign. Virgo represents service, work and purity. Virgo is considered a Mutable Sign and rules the sixth house of the natal chart, which represents work and health. Virgo's symbol is the Virgin, which does not mean that all Virgos are chaste, however they are discriminating and generally are not promiscuous. A typical Virgo looks at life analytically. Virgo is taste, art, and refinement. Virgo pays great attention to detail. Virgo (as well as Gemini) is ruled by Mercury, the quick thinking messenger. Virgo's element is Earth and its colors are subtle. Chances are you will find a Virgo (even one on a tight budget) impeccably dressed in tasteful earth tones.

So how do these seemingly opposite signs fare in love?

Aries and Virgo often find themselves drawn to each other as if to find the missing piece of the puzzle. Although Virgo is considered Feminine and Aries Masculine, there seem to be just as many attractions between Aries women and Virgo men. Whatever the gender, it is a good bet that unless introduced by a third party, the Ram will charge ahead and initiate the encounter. Despite the attraction to sexy Aries, Virgo's initial reception may appear cool as he or she sizes up the situation. Virgo's reluctance only fuels Aries' desire to participate in the chase.

The chase becomes less obvious, but nevertheless continues throughout the relationship. The pace of the relationship can be unbalanced, as Aries jumps ahead to places that Virgo may not be prepared to go. Aries' may try to sweep Virgo into the bedroom too soon. Virgo needs to be courted, and more than ever, little things do make an impression. Virgos seduction takes place in the mind and then the body will follow. Aries needs to feel that he or she is number one or their typical short attention span may cause them to stray to find ego gratification. Although Virgo may be slower to commit in the bedroom, Aries may be looking at engagement rings in store windows long before Virgo has a clue in that direction.

Problems arise for the couple if they cannot see past their own experience and understand the other's needs. Accommodation and flexibility are key to appreciating this astrological diversity.

For example, Virgo should try not to criticize when your Aries man comes to the door unexpectedly rumpled and dirty after sports practice, presenting a bouquet of flowers that he impulsively picked up at the Supermarket along with a six-pack. Aries should also understand that Virgo might have been in the middle of cleaning the spaces between the tiles with a toothbrush and may not appreciate this impromptu date, tracking mud on the floor, although the flowers were a nice thought. And as for sex, as in all relationships it is important that both partners feel totally comfortable. This point is well amplified in the Aries/Virgo combination. The sparks that result from such a romantic pairing are worth the wait. Most importantly in and out of bed, warmth and affection go a long way to soothe Aries sometimes tousled ego and reassure Virgo that the relationship is real.

Beyond the initial attraction of opposites, a lasting link between this couple usually just requires Virgo to be less critical and Aries more patient. With a little work this seemingly incompatible combination can be an excellent love match.
