Virgo and Aquarius: Love and Friendship Compatibility

Is true love possible with a Virgo and Aquarius pair? Well, people will see this love match on a surface level and wonder how or if it works. Either you’re two aliens in a terribly incompatible relationship. Or you’re two soulmates who found each other after a long time of waiting. Compatibility is only one half of a relationship, while commitment is the other… but does this pair actually work? Unfortunately, Aquarius and Virgo compatibility is pretty low.

Virgo and Aquarius Compatibility


The Virgo Zodiac

  • Virgo‘s planetary ruler is Mars, the planet of wisdom and communication.
  • The Virgo star sign is represented by a virgin or a woman. In astrology, she is a symbol of fertility and wisdom.
  • As an earth sign, a Virgo is intellectual, efficient, and practical. This sign is often down-to-earth too.
  • A Virgo is a mutable sign. They can tailor themselves to different situations in life — as long as they can analyze the situation and organize their thoughts first.

Virgo’s personality traits:

  • Good at communicating.
  • Patient, dependable, organized hard-workers.
  • Bossy perfectionists.
  • Would rather sit back and observe but can be social butterflies if need be.
  • Tend to worry and overthink.
  • Overly critical of everything and everyone, including themselves.

Virgo man personality traits:

  • Will over-analyze everything.
  • Very organized and hard-working.
  • Doesn’t want to be smothered in love.
  • He will be ready to settle down in a relationship if his lover is loyal and willing to settle down too.

Virgo woman personality traits: 

  • Intelligent.
  • Bossy but in a way that shows she cares more than anything else.
  • Practical and realistic and cautious in love.
  • She is a woman who over-analyzes and is overly-critical of everything.
  • In astrology, along with our sun sign, every person has a sign in the moon and rising placements of their zodiac chart. Your moon represents your inner self and your rising is how people see you when they first meet you.
  • If your moon sign is in Virgo, you’re passionate about people and things. However, you’ll want to (over) analyze them first to make sure they’re worth it.
  • If your rising sign is in Virgo, you are an organized perfectionist and you might often doubt every move you make.

Virgos are control freaks. They prefer to take the lead and boss others around because they like to have things their way. Virgos get along best with laid back friends who will listen to what they have to say. If they’re confronted with someone else who likes to make decisions, then they are bound to butt heads. They aren’t the type to come to compromises. Virgos always believe they are right. They have a hard time admitting that they could be wrong.

When it comes to love and relationships, Virgos are cautious. They don’t want to have their heart broken, which is why they analyze everything their crush says and does. Virgos are constantly trying to look for hidden messages and decipher mixed signals. They hate feeling like they are losing control, which is why falling in love can be so scary for them. However, once you enter a serious relationship with them, they stay loyal. They stick to their promises.

The Aquarius Zodiac

  • Aquarius is a fixed sign. It falls under the ruling planet of both Uranus and Saturn. Uranus is the only planet that spins on its side, which fits because this zodiac sign is known to be very individualistic and original. Saturn governs our ambition, knowledge, and limits of reality. And an Aquarian is very intelligent, so much so that they sometimes appear out of this world.
  • The Aquarius symbol is a water bearer, representing the flow of energy, thinking, and creativity.
  • As a fixed sign, an Aquarian is an intelligent, persistent natural-born leader.
  • As an air sign, an Aquarian has a free spirit that is unlike any other. An Aquarian soul is a breath of fresh air!

Aquarius’s personality traits: 

  • Independent, but hates being alone for long periods of time.
  • Original.
  • Friendly and make good friends.
  • Intelligent, great problem solvers.
  • Good conversationalists.
  • Easy for them to adapt to new environments.
  • They don’t care what people think about them!
  • An Aquarius lover might seem a bit aloof, especially with their feelings, just because they don’t like to talk about it.

Aquarius man personality traits: 

  • Social but independent.
  • Intelligent.
  • Good at communicating.
  • His mind is always occupied with new ideas, so he might appear aloof and distant.
  • Don’t rush into a relationship with him. Just be his friend first.

An Aquarius woman personality traits: 

  • Free-spirited.
  • Independent.
  • Practical and intelligent.
  • A woman who appreciates individuality, so if you want her attention, stand out from the crowd!
  • Not great with emotions, so if you get too clingy, she might run away!
  • In astrology, along with our sun sign, every person has a sign in the moon and rising placements of their zodiac chart. Your moon represents your inner self and your rising is how people see you when they first meet you.
  • If your moon sign is in Aquarius, you tend to lead with your head more than your heart. You will try to rationalize your feelings.
  • If your rising sign is in Aquarius, you are a great conversationalist. You are quite free-spirited and unpredictable too.

Aquarius can strike up a conversation with anyone. This sign is friendly, approachable, and capable of fitting in anywhere. Ironically, they couldn’t care less about whether they blend in with the crowd. Aquarius are free spirits who never follow trends or try hard to impress others. They consider themselves quirky, unique, and undefinable.

Aquarius is one of the most practical signs. They always think things through and use common sense. They don’t allow their heart to lead them into dangerous situations. Even if they fall hard for someone, they are cautious enough to take a step back. Aquarius will decide whether getting into a relationship with that person would be a good idea. They don’t give in to temptation or rush into making important, life-altering decisions. Aquarius prefer to take things slow.

Virgo and Aquarius: Friendship Compatibility

  • When it comes to a Virgo and Aquarius friendship, these two are like yin and yang. If they play to their own strengths and differences, they’re able to balance each other out very well.
  • They both are quite intellectual, however, Virgo is more practical and realistic and Aquarius seeks pure spiritual enlightenment.
  • They both love helping others and making positive changes when needed. The Aquarius friend will bring ideas to the table and the Virgo friend will turn those ideas into a reality.
  • Virgo’s criticism might get the best of them sometimes. Aquarius might struggle to put up with it. Meanwhile, Virgo will get irritated with Aquarius’ independence and free-spirit. They might struggle to compromise on things from time to time but it’s nothing they can’t work through.

These two signs can build a strong friendship as long as they learn to recognize and respect their differences. After all, they hardly have anything in common. Their biggest overlap is their intelligence. They will have fun exploring museums together, watching documentaries together, and coming up with new games and inventions together. When they put aside their differences to work as a team, they are bound to create something one-of-a-kind.

However, these two signs could have trouble when there is disagreement. Virgos always insist that they are right and want everyone to listen to their orders. However, Aquarius couldn’t care less about someone else’s opinion. They are going to make the decision they believe is best for themselves. The fact that a Virgo won’t be able to control an Aquarius could cause some tension. They might end up in some screaming matches.

Virgo and Aquarius: Sex and Love Compatibility

  • A romantic and sexual relationship between a Virgo and an Aquarius can be wonderful. However, they have to work at it, especially when/if things get tough.
  • They can love each other for who they are, or they can fight and let tough times get the best of them. It’s a matter of choice and their attitude towards the relationship.
  • When it comes to a romantic relationship between a Virgo and Aquarius, they will go about dating differently. Virgo will want to plan the date. Aquarius will be more spontaneous. The earth sign partner needs to learn to be flexible. The air sign partner needs to try to be more stable and consistent.
  • There’s decent sexual compatibility between these two signs. They will both bring depth and passion to the bedroom in their own ways. Aquarius is adventurous in the bedroom, while Virgo is often cautious in love and sometimes reserved. They just need to find comfort and understanding within each other.

These two signs are going to have to work hard if they want to make a romantic relationship last. They are going to have to put effort into communicating with each other and compromising with each other. If they let their tempers, or their stubbornness, get the best of them, then the relationship isn’t going to last long. After all, these two signs like to live by their own rules. They don’t like anyone else telling them what to do, even their partner.

However, when it comes to sex, these two signs will get along surprisingly well. An adventurous Aquarius will be able to bring out a reserved Virgo’s carefree side. As long as they feel comfortable and treat each other with respect, they will be excited to try new things together in the bedroom. They will show each other sides of themselves they have never shown in previous relationships.

Zodiac Compatibility With a Virgo or an Aquarius

Virgo Compatibility: 

  • If you’re a Virgo, expect a relationship with the Capricorn sign to be a strong one! You both are very patient and understanding of one another and will find that communication is strong. Both signs might struggle to show emotions from time to time, but will be trusting enough of one another to peel back the layers.
  • If you’re a Virgo, you might find that a relationship with a Leo would be a little too intense. Leos are known to be passionate, selfish, and arrogant. Even Virgo’s accommodating nature won’t be able to put up with that type of personality. You’ll also have trouble in love with air sign Libra. Not only will you just not be attracted to one another, but you’ll both struggle with communicating and trusting your emotions and each other.

Aquarius Compatibility:

  • If you’re an Aquarius, you’ll find that you connect with certain signs more than others, specifically those with the fire element, like Aries. There is passionate and exciting energy between Aquarius and Aries. Despite both signs lacking emotional tenderness, they are still trusting of one another and good at communicating.
  • If you’re an Aquarius, you’ll find that a relationship with water sign Scorpio won’t be the best fit. Either they were (toxic) lovers in a past life or a love from hell. Either way, this is an intense pairing that should probably just be avoided. They’ll struggle with finding trust and emotional depth in the relationship and will have to work really hard to make it work.
  • Virgos and Capricorns tend to have the strongest, healthiest relationships. Although neither of them is completely comfortable discussing their emotions in public, they will let down their guards around each other. They will whisper secrets that they have never told another living soul. Both of these signs are super cautious when it comes to love. In order for them to become a couple, they must really trust each other. There must really be a strong connection from their first meeting.

Meanwhile, Aquarius will get along well with a fire sign, like Aries. They aren’t going to sit down and have long, vulnerable talks about their emotions. However, these two signs are still going to have a strong sense of trust. They will stay loyal to each other, and if there is ever a problem in their relationship, they will make it known. These signs aren’t the most romantic, but when they get together, they are going to realize why people do such crazy things for love.

Virgo and Aquarius: Relationship Compatibility with a Virgo or an Aquarius

Virgo and Aquarius (Virgo man + Aquarius woman)

These two are almost polar opposites. The Aquarius female loves a good adventure with spontaneity. Meanwhile, the Virgo male will want stability, structure, and a plan. They can find balance and strength in the relationship as long as they look past their disparities and use them to their advantage. She will bring excitement and warmth into his life while he’ll bring stability and unconditional love.

Virgo and Aquarius (Virgo woman + Aquarius man)

Despite differences in their personalities, they can complement each other well. There’s a magnetic sexual attraction, and they will find stability and fun in the bedroom. They both don’t like to argue, especially over petty issues. They’ll avoid conflict when or if it arises and it won’t take long for them to compromise.

Virgo and Aquarius (Virgo woman + Aquarius woman)

Aquarius and Virgo women are going to overthink everything in their relationship. They are going to end up facing nonexistent problems. However, as long as they communicate instead of keeping their fears to themselves, the relationship should work out. If these two zodiac signs fall in love, they need to put in a lot of effort.

Virgo and Aquarius (Virgo man + Aquarius man)

Aquarius and Virgo men are going to teach each other a lot. But only if they are receptive to it. Since they are so different, they will see the world in completely different ways. Aquarius will teach Virgo to stop being so judgmental of everyone. Meanwhile, Virgo will teach Aquarius to make smarter decisions. Overall, a Virgo Aquarius pairing can work out well.

Virgo’s compatibility with a Virgo:

A Virgo-Virgo relationship will be pretty good as long as they have faith in themselves and each other. They might think that sex with each other is inadequate because they’re so critical and always searching for the faults in things. They’ll both struggle with emotions sometimes, but they’ll keep going in the relationship for the practicality and routine aspect of it. A long-term relationship is certainly possible.

Aquarius compatibility with an Aquarius:

An Aquarius-Aquarius relationship will be interesting and exciting because of the free-spirited Aquarian persona. They might be hesitant to talk about their feelings. However, they will understand and trust each other enough to open up when the time comes.

Two Virgos are going to have a rocky relationship. They both want to take the lead inside and outside the bedroom, so there is going to be a constant power struggle. Virgos are bound to get into disagreements with no clear winner. Neither of them is going to back down from a fight, admit they were wrong, or come to a compromise. Any one of their arguments could snowball into the end of the relationship because they are so stubborn and set in their ways.

Meanwhile, two Aquarius are going to have a thriving relationship. However, they cannot act like hypocrites and get annoyed with each other for wanting the same things they want themselves. Remember, this sign wants to have plenty of freedom to do as they wish without permission from their partner. They want a certain amount of space. They need to make up for lost time by making sure the time they do spend together is meaningful. Then two Aquarius are going to have a love that lasts.
