Compatibility Between Virgo and Taurus: The Virgin and the Bull
These are both earth signs, and Taurus is fixed while Virgo is mutable. Both Taurus and Virgo can see the faults and the foibles of everything around them. Virgo cares and remembers them all. Taurus sees the faults, but they are not in the business of carefully splitting hairs; instead, they build new elements with fewer flaws. Taurus admires Virgo’s sense of superiority, their alacrity, and their mental quickness. When they see Taurus, Virgo is impressed with the soundness and solidarity that the bull exudes.
The adaptability of Virgo, in its “mutability,” holds the virgin in good stead. Fast-acting synapses help the Virgin cast its speedy, critical eyes over the world, which needs so much fixing. Steady, organized, and calm, Taurus has the patience to build.
Their Differences Become Strengths
This is one of those combinations where their defects actually fill in for each other. Virgo’s speed leads to worrisome impatience. The Virgo looks calm, but they are crackling with inner irritability. Taurus does have actual patience. Taurus can employ Virgo’s agenda and make things happen.
Both of these signs have an outer warmth and ease about them. Just because Virgo has inner disturbances, they are still the picture of pleasantness. Virgo is preoccupied with itself. Not in a vainglorious or snotty way, but rather, because they are the best people they know. A Taurus who admires their Virgo would probably hold them in great respect. Taurus is shy, but also very sure of itself.
These two would walk around with a sense of contentment. Virgo could criticize, and Taurus would not really listen very hard. They could march through public settings and parties with their inner sense of self-assured security.
Initially, Taurus and Virgo might not even get together. I say that humorously, just because neither is a forward firing aggressor. They hold back in their self-assured dignity and restraint. They are not interested in looking around and measuring themselves in some kind of mating contest. Their sincerity and self-admiration would probably magnetize them toward each other on some quiet evening. “I could admire you as much as you admire yourself” might be a funny opening line.
In their relationship, they would want to avoid Virginal hyper-criticism and Taurean immovability. These would be the two key romantic downfalls.
A Taurus hopes that his/her Virgo would be above reproach. A Taurean conflict would probably have a good deal of indignation. Taurus feels it is right. Virgos can tell you all the reasons they are right. This means that in a fight between them, they might have to stop and listen to each other. Neither wants to admit, I mean openly admit, that they are wrong. You can say, “Who does?” But lots of signs can admit mistakes and move on.
These two do best when they are not trying to extract admissions from each other, but rather, to spend time calming each other and in a sense, “assuming” admissions that may actually not occur. What you are after is the peaceful manifestation of post-fight reconciliation, not the nit picking post fight “counting of coups”.
Life in the end is repetitive and mundane, and so is Romance itself. This factor asks the question: "Can we be bored together over the long term?" Virgo resists boredom. They are fundamentally opposed to it. They don’t need to be entertained; they just cannot come to rest. As the relationship matures and ages, the Taurus will be happy to revel in their success and kick back.
Virgo will be seeding their garden with new ways to constantly improve. Add a deck, change the foliage. Taurus would probably not object in most cases. Virgo’s desire is to always make things better. Taurus does not hold that same sense. There is so much that is already beautiful all by itself, naturally. Though that might seem to be a conflict, it could actually be the couples’ way of being.
Virgo’s active mind would be fertile ground for new interest; and Taurus’s sensuality could probably keep up an environment of new vitality. Neither of these signs is adventurous in a venal kind of way, so conventionality would probably be the watchword. Both of these earth signs, guided by their inner clocks and measured standards would find continued interest through self-exploration.
There are some signs that by their nature are more stable in their love interests and family concerns as time goes on. Others are not. The Virgo would probably acknowledge that the 7-Year Itch exists as a potentially human problem, but not see it as a potential stumbling block for them. Taurus would probably see it as a possibility. Sensual Taurus can certainly be tempted, but also, conservatism is there as a restraint. Virgo would probably have to be angry and outraged, and seek out an answer due to the Bull turning away from them. Taurus could be driven away by the out of control Virginal harassing criticism.
