Virgo and Virgo Compatibility: Are They a Good Match in Love and Friendship?

There’s no one better to push them to their limits than someone just as capable and driven.


Through the many years of human civilization and development, we’ve used the stars to find our place in the world. We study astrology and our horoscopes in order to look more deeply at our own instincts, discover what drives us to meet our goals and follow specific paths, and learn how we can find the friends and loved ones that will compliment us on our journey. Today, we’ll dive deep into Virgo and Virgo compatibility… and determine whether this earth sign might be its own perfect match.

Virgo at a Glance (August 23 to September 22)

Before you can set your Virgo-Virgo relationship up for success, you should know what to expect from the sign, how it interacts with others, and what it values most in relationships, friendships, and love. 

Virgo Traits and Characteristics

Virgo is represented by the symbol of the maiden or virgin, specifically the goddess of fertility and agriculture. Agriculture and a sense of rootedness in the earth and material plane are important to Virgo, who thrives on practicality, guidance, and structure. 

Virgo is ruled by the planet of Mercury, along with an unlikely companion. The other zodiac sign ruled by the planet Mercury is Gemini. Still, where Gemini signs use the planet of communication to express themselves and engage with the outside world, Virgo uses Mercury’s guidance to better understand their inner self. They are innately skilled at processing information and understanding its meaning, both when it comes to emotions and logic. In part, that’s because Virgos are often considered perfectionists. They are systematic, intentional, and practical when it comes to making decisions big and small, and they can be a great friend to turn to when it comes to problem-solving. They easily navigate and understand details and always ensure the job gets done correctly.

Their goals and larger ambition drive Virgos, and the earn sign often doesn’t feel important if they aren’t being useful. For Virgos to find peace, they must be able to balance that remarkable capability and meticulous attention to detail with an understanding of their innate self-worth and value. The projects and challenges will still be there to tackle, even if they stop to take a well-earned breath. 

Earth Sign

Your sun sign isn’t the only thing to consider regarding your birth chart. You’ll also want to look at your moon sign, rising sign, and element. There are four elements: air, water, fire, and earth. Virgo is an earth sign, along with Capricorn and Taurus.

As the name might indicate, earth signs are deeply grounded, with both feet planted on terra firma. Those born under this sign are constants: reliable, dependable, and hard-working. Because of this, they don’t tend toward over-expression, especially when it comes to emotions like anger or frustration — but that means you don’t want to stick around when these signs get to the end of their rope. Earth signs aren’t about beating around the bush. They’re honest and straightforward, and they’ll tell it like it is — which can make for strong and resilient friendships. The earth signs can stand for some balance and care, however. Their bluntness can be useful for giving feedback on a new novel but might be harsh to deal with regarding deeper emotions and connections.

Another admirable trait of earth signs is their ability to plan in the long term. These signs are driven and ambitious, perhaps to a fault at times, and they actually have the wherewithal to follow through on their plans, even if they take a while to come to life. If you’re looking for someone to keep you inspired and engaged on your journey, there’s no one better than an earth sign. 


Another factor you want to account for when looking at the different signs is modality. There are three modalities. Cardinal modalities are the signs that start the season, which are Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn; this means they are often leaders, individuals who take initiative and really get things done. The four fixed signs are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius. These signs fall in the middle of the season, which means they are more set in their ways, thriving in situations and environments that are more comfortable for them.

Virgo, along with Gemini, Sagittarius, and Pisces, is a mutable sign. Mutable signs fall at the end of seasons and are known for their ability to adapt to new and changing circumstances for this reason. This modality means that Virgo can easily balance a little of the old and a little of the new and are comfortable in periods of transition and change.   

Virgo-Virgo in Friendship 

Virgos are deeply capable, reliable, and ambitious, so you might question whether they will get along with themselves, or become competitive. Unlike some of the other signs, which often find themselves in competition or at odds, the Virgo zodiac sign does just great when in the company of fellow Maidens. In fact, this type of friendship can lead to some pretty remarkable successes in life, work, and love. That’s because Virgo is always thinking ahead, making a plan, and narrowing in the details. There’s no one better to understand the Virgo drive for ambition and success than another, like-minded Virgo, and there’s no one better to push them to their limits than someone just as capable, talented, and driven. These two together might find themselves building businesses or balancing big accounts, as they are often driven toward industry and commerce.

All that said, Virgos can be quite well-connected with their emotions and selves. This sign is loyal and likes it when that loyalty is recognized and appreciated. Virgos can provide that loyalty and gratitude to each other innately and won’t feel like they’re part of an unbalanced friendship. 

Potential Problem Areas

One consideration that Virgo friendships should watch for is that little voice this sign has in the back of their heads. Virgos are often prone to self-criticism, and it’s sure to be even stronger when they feel like they’re in familiar company. The last thing this dynamic duo wants to do is get down on themselves at two times the speed for not meeting their goals of perfection. Virgos are incredibly capable, but everyone deserves grace and a little self-love and kindness at times — and to have that self-love and kindness reflected back.

Virgo-Virgo in Love 

As with friendship, there’s remarkable love compatibility to be found in Virgo couples. They both have the same high expectations for themselves and their partners, meaning there’s a base level of communication, respect, and equity within the dynamic from the start. Things that might bother a Virgo about the other signs — like flightiness, distraction, or disregard for the details — will never be a problem when two Virgos get together.

One of the great things about Virgo partners is that they always push each other to be the best they can be. Virgos are ambitious, goal-oriented, and capable of impressive follow-through when it comes to creating the life they want. They’re sure to feel supported and encouraged every step of the way from their Virgo partner. Of course, a little friendly competition might also have something to do with it.

Potential Problem Areas

One pain point that a Virgo pair may need to navigate is emotional connection. Virgos can be much slower to open their hearts to another than their minds. Two Virgos just getting into a relationship might find themselves in a bit of a stand-off about who makes the first move, although it’s more than worth it to find that balance of openness and vulnerability. It doesn’t hurt that this is a sensual sign, as all earth signs are, and there’s sure to be great creativity, excitement, and fun in this duo’s sex life. 

As with friendship, it’s important for Virgo partners to take care during periods of critique or criticism. It can often come across as harsher than intended because Virgos judge themselves harshly. This couple should therefore do their best to strike a balance between critique designed to inspire and providing unwavering support. 

Virgo-Virgo: In Conclusion

Virgo signs are quite remarkable, and they can engage in some long-lasting friendships and romances over the course of their lives. They are practical and grounded, and they have high levels of intelligence and detailed focus that set them up for success on whatever journey or path they most want. Virgos are earth signs, which means they’re safe and reliable friends and partners that will always get a job done when they say they will. They also have a mutable modality, meaning they’re adaptable, open to change, and comfortable in periods of transition.

Not all signs do well in friendships and relationships with themselves, but Virgo really does. They’re very ambitious and driven, and there’s no one better for pushing a Virgo to do their very best than another. Whether it be a Virgo woman who loves her Virgo man, or any other combination therein, Virgos will certainly make for a loyal and supportive partner. Because Virgos are perfectionists, however, it’s important for them to take care when encouraging friends and partners — and themselves. Nobody is perfect, not even a Virgo. They do come pretty close, however!
