The BULL and The VIRGIN --- Pleasant Stubborn and Innocent Stubborn
How To Get Along and THRIVE – Taurus and Virgo
Astro-compatibility is the goal.
This series on Astro-Compatibility will cover all of the potential match-ups in the Zodiac. We will continue this series thinking about and commenting on Taurus and Virgo.
Taurus - Virgo
These two signs are both Earth. Fixed Earth and Mutable Earth. Taurus and Virgo can see the faults and the foibles of the around. Virgo cares and remembers them all. Taurus sees faults, but they are not in the business of carefully splitting hairs, they build new elements with fewer flaws. Taurus admires Virgo’s sense of superiority, with their alacrity and brain quickness. When they see Taurus, the 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 that needs so much fixing. Steady, organized and calm, the Taurus has the patience to build. This is one of those combinations for which 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.
Positive Postulate: 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.
Romance Recommendation: 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.
Conflict Quotient: 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”.
Peace Parlay: 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.
Keep Up The Interest Graph: 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.
Seven Year Itchiness: 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.
ASTROCOMPATIBILITY POSSIBILITY RATING: 75% Positive Long Term - 50% Short Term. Once they got to know each other, and saw their many similarities, they could be a strong couple. This is a good natural match, and one in which both parties could grow from each other’s company.
Be Desirable to be Desired

I'm a Taurus girl and currently liking a Virgo guy. He is clever so he found out I like him even tho I didn't tell. We have this awkward tension around us when our friends are not around. He avoids me sometimes but sometimes also ask for my help. I don't know if he likes me or not. If he doesn't, how do I make him like me?
Jibaro on January 29, 2018:
Very interesting and loaded with lots of info.
Rasoolbux on December 09, 2014:
Very interesting I am virgo woman and this is the first time I've ever been atatectrd to a Gemini our connection is crazy we are not a couple, but for some reason can't leave each other alone. We do find each other mentally stimulating but there seems to be a strong sexual connection also, although we have never gone there. Just wondering if this should be persued or not. We are both so guarded and keep trying to resist this thing, but for some strange reason though we just keep finding each other and it starts the sparks all over again.
Syed on December 09, 2014:
you need to look past each others faluts. I also read that living a simple and sensible life is the virgo motto. Which brings me to another point maybe you've let yourself go. I'm not trying to put you down, but if he's not attracted to you to the point he has been pleasuring himself. Then you need to do significant things to show him you are still interested. The stars don't lie! If it's possible then you need to remember why you wanted to be with one another in the first place. Lastly you need not to take the vows you promised each other and god lightly. Read Corintheians and what Love truly means. Good luck with everything.

Taurus and Virgo. You two are cut from the same cloth. If Virgo can cut down on familiar criticism and Taurus avoid touchiness and quiet moods, you might really have something going.

Gq: Virgo is not comfortable with closeness. They are virginal and innocent souls. Be patient. Go slowly and see how you are received. They will only run away if you profoundly disappoint them, or you terrify them.
judy desire on February 09, 2012:
O met my virgo fiancé 5 years ago we act so much alike its almost scary but it works.i love you jesse.boogz.
Gq on January 08, 2012:
Hey guys, I'm a taurus boy. I like virgo girl. She's told me her deep and darkest secrets no one else knows. As a taurus I need stability and because she hides her emotions most of the time, I find it hard to express mine. So how d I make the first move with a virgo girl if I were to make it official?
VirginiaVirgo on December 13, 2011:
I'm a typical virgo and the guy who i like is a Taurus who likes me too, I'm starting to see that even though we have different interests and different lives, that we match awesomely. I'm suuuper excited for life now
Virgogirl on September 02, 2011:

Jane on August 11, 2011:

Mpho on January 06, 2011:
