5 Reasons A Pisces-Virgo Pairing Is The Best There Is

Ah our sweet fish, Pisces, the visionary lovers of the zodiac. Gentle, dreamy, naturally empathic –their feet are rarely tethered to the ground and it’s not uncommon for them to get lost in whatever fantasy they’ve concocted. When you think about who to pair a Pisces babe with, it’s hard to picture anyone more different than a Virgo, the analytical perfectionist. Virgos are impossibly hard workers with meticulous routines, often thrown into major anxiety when just one thing is off. But this pairing excels BECAUSE of their drastic differences. …And I say this as a Pisces who has loved Virgos, both platonically and romantically, my whole life.

Here are just a few reasons why this union is so great.

1. They make each other better people.

Our Virgo doesn’t always see the best in situations or people and, as a result, grows easily frustrated. Our Pisces, on the other hand, happily gives second chances and never assumes someone has bad intentions. Virgo sees how genuinely kind Pisces is and is touched. Our Virgo gets the chance to step away from their critical eye and see what Pisces sees, an imperfect world that is beautiful regardless.

As sweet as Pisces can be, they are not always the hardest workers. They give into laziness and are content to self-sabotage if a situation feels Too Hard. Pisces sees Virgo and how hard they work every day no matter if they are up to it or not. Pisces sees that hustle and strives to be a bit more like their Virgo partner, to put some muscle into things. They are inspired to try instead of give up.

2. They excel where the other lacks.

Let’s be real, Pisces doesn’t really have great organizational skills. Virgo has an itinerary laminated on the back of their daily planner. Pisces is bored by details. Virgo lives for them. This is just ONE example of how well they work.

3. They intellectually stimulate one another.

Despite their differing perspectives, this pairing loves to lose themselves in deep conversation together. While Virgo leans on the analytical side and Pisces the creative, they have deep admiration for what the other thinks and could spend hours just talking.

4. They share a strong, emotional connection.

Virgos are sensitive, they just don’t let on. They tend to walk around with a guard up, but don’t be fooled, they have a lot of feelings. Pisces is very comfortable with emotions. They aren’t turned off by crying (they kinda like it). They seek to create vulnerable connections. Virgo comes to see this in Pisces and knows they won’t be judged. Virgo lets go and lets Pisces in. This lends itself to a beautiful relationship founded on real. ass. shit.

5. They’re mutable signs.

Simply put, they can change. They recognize the value in growth, both together and individually. Even at their most stubborn, they’re aware there is good in trying new things. They are open to what might come. And that’s such a wonderful trait to share. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
