I'm a Midwesterner with a background in writing and media. My articles are mainly about relationships, dating, and heartbreak.
Virgo and Pisces

One of the Loveliest Couple Combos
Both signs care about acts of service. Virgo can sometimes be too in their head; this sign often needs to work on being vulnerable with their emotions. Pisces can sometimes be involved too heavily in their emotions, causing them to feel overwhelmed or moody. Both of these signs are very smart.
This relationship will be a very lovely one. Virgo and Pisces bring out each other's best qualities, and they feel at ease in each other's presence. Earth and water romances tend to do well because these two elements know how to nourish each other.
Virgo and Pisces are opposite of each other on the zodiac chart: such relationships often prove fruitful.
A Match With All the Right Charms
Virgo will be intense at times, while Pisces will do their best to go with the flow. Virgo's need for perfectionism can make them neurotic and unaware of Pisces' needs.
Both of these signs are considered loyal and supportive. They tend to give extra care to long-term monogamous romances. Virgo is very dependable, caring, and is constantly thinking about practical needs. Virgo is more down to earth; Pisces is more dreamy and otherworldly.
Virgos like to balance budgets, organize households, keep track of items, study details, read books, work with their hands, and keep things tidy. Pisceans like to be creative, dream about different possibilities, get involved in social causes, develop and nourish friendships, and help make things beautiful. Virgo is analytical, cerebral, practical, and logical, while Pisces is emotional, imaginative, and kind.
Giving in the Relationship
Pisces cares about the emotional realities we all face. Pisces loves to give and give and give from her heart, so it is important for Virgo to also give. . . otherwise you could be taking advantage of your Pisces.
Virgo is a devoted partner, so giving material goods should come naturally to him. It will take more effort for him to give up his heart and emotions.
Virgo needs to make sure Pisces isn't sacrificing too much and is still exploring her own interests. Pisces could have an existential meltdown if she doesn't attend to her own needs.
Pisces Types Are Sacrificial
Pisceans are supposed to be natural martyrs—miraculous, intuitive, and gentle. It is in their DNA. I can't repeat this enough: they need to really consider whether their relationships are healthy or toxic before jumping into them.
It is hard for a Pisces to leave a bad relationship because they so badly want to give and nurture—walking away feels unnatural, and they take it as a failure. Some advice for Pisces: Think before you fall in love so you can avoid a toxic match. A mature Virgo would be protective of your natural tendencies.
Virgo Can Burden Himself with Perfection
It can't be said enough: Virgo likes to keep things clean. They work hard to keep things in a perfect order.
Virgo can be relentless in their search for perfection, making them prey to judgmental thoughts. Sometimes Virgo needs to work on understanding and acceptance rather than perfection.
Virgo will get attached to a Pisces because they like their virtues. However, Pisces sometimes needs to work on independence and boundaries instead of constantly merging their energy with another.
Both of these people are devoted, caring, and sweet. They make an amicable match. They may need to work on putting themselves out there, being vulnerable, and not being afraid to be themselves.
All water signs have a strong need for affection and passion, so Pisces wants to be in an intimate relationship. Virgo can be sensual, as earth signs are dominated by the five senses.
Most Virgos show love through acts of service. They'll do things like wash the dishes, fix the car, make blankets, fill your car up with gas, cook dinner, run errands for you, and tidy up.
Most Pisces fall into two primary love languages: touch and words of affirmation. Pisces wants to give you hugs and kisses, and they also tend to be good at compliments.
Similar but Nuanced
These two come to similar conclusions about life, but they have different perspectives on the world. Virgo can pigeonhole themselves by being too analytical. Sometimes what Virgo needs to do is simply pull back and think more globally and objectively.
If Virgo continues to focus and bear down on something, they might cease to understand it. Advice to Virgo: don't rely purely on logic. Sometimes, you have to use other perspectives to solve problems.
Pisces: it's okay to pause your emotions. Have long-term strategies. Not every moment of your life needs to be defined by a mood.
This Pairing Needs to Dedicate Time to Fun
Fun and spontaneity will help this pairing stop putting so much pressure on their natural mental proclivities.
For Virgo, it is good for you to allow yourself to play, be abstract, and get excited. It will allow you to see things outside your analytical eye. This also helps strengthen your bond with your partner. If you constantly stay in your analytical frame of mind, you will forget to use your heart.
Playfulness for a Pisces helps them to be lovable rather than brooding over a dark mood they can't get over.
Both people in this relationship have a need to find spirituality. The two will likely have strong religious views, daily rituals, or work ethics.
- Virgos have incredibly high standards and are very picky when it comes to romance. They care about punctuality, hygiene, and manners. Virgo definitely knows how to treat a Pisces right.
- Pisces wants their partner to feel completely nourished and accepted. They work hard to make their partner feel welcome and appreciated. Pisces will do what they can to put Virgo at ease.
The takeaway: go have fun and be spontaneous! Your relationship can't be serious 100% of the time.
Attention + Affection
Pisces will feel a great amount of comfort from Virgo, because earth signs know how to pamper their partners.
But Pisces, you may at times have to encourage the Virgo to give you more attention and affection. Virgo can get preoccupied with their goals and tasks.
Pisces needs a partner who really cares about them, is sensitive to their needs, and wants romance. Virgo wants to meet those needs. Virgo may feel like they're not giving enough, even when they're already giving 150%.
Virgo may stop providing for Pisces because they may stop believing that you care about them or the things they do. The same happens with Pisces. You have to be consistent about attention and affection. Don't stop doing little daily love nudges.
- Relationships tend to move slowly. They either strengthen over time with consistent love and nourishment, or, with more neglect and nagging, they decay into divorce.
- Think before you speak. Try to slow your words down. They matter.
Chivalry on Both Sides
When an argument gets heated, take a moment to step back. You do better to affirm each other than to criticize each other.
Virgo can easily hyperfocus on someone's flaws. Remember: be nurturing, not destructive. Virgo, you want to be there to help strengthen your partner's weaknesses and not hurt their feelings.
If Virgo has coupled up with a water sign, then they need to prioritize their emotions.
Emotions are a place where Pisces can lead in the relationships. They can share their emotions first and encourage Virgo to be more vulnerable.
Virgo is eager to please, especially when they love someone. They are very earnest, eager, and egalitarian. Both of these signs are into chivalry, heroship, and having an excellent reputation.
Once this relationship gets serious, it is likely the two will want to stay together for the rest of their lives. Their match has a nice energy exchange. The two have a lot of similarities and complement each other well. I think both would be happy in this relationship, depending on and growing with each other.
