Virgos, born between Aug. 23 and Sept. 22, have a reputation for being cool, reserved and unromantic. The reality is that Virgos are choosy about their lovers and careful with their emotions. Virgos believe in true romantic love and refuse to settle for anything less than the ideal mate. Other Earth signs offer many of the qualities that Virgo looks for in a mate, says Joanna Woolfolk in "The Only Astrology Book You'll Ever Need."
Capricorn and Virgo share a respect for discipline, a sense of purpose and a love of order. Capricorn's ambition is a good match for Virgo's drive for perfection. This is a "harmonious pairing," according to Woolfolk.
Taurus, another Earth sign, shares Virgo's desire for serene surroundings and her love of the Earth. Their mutual respect for the other will make a Taurus/Virgo match one that endures.
Virgo is one of the few astrological signs that match up well with one of its own. Two Virgos will respect each other's needs and understand intuitively how to reach beneath the surface to stoke the fires of passion.
Capricorn and Virgo will seldom fight over money. Virgo is thrifty but understands the value of high-quality purchases, which fits well with Capricorn's ambitions to reach the highest social strata.
Virgo and Taurus may butt heads when the Bull's love of extravagance strains the household budget. As long as Virgo doesn't hold the purse strings too tightly, the arguments won't last long.
Two Virgos may let their natural caution keep them from enjoying the fruits of their labor because those rainy days they've been saving for never seem to be rainy enough to justify spending any cash.
Taurus and Virgo will approach parenting the same way they approach everything else--they'll divide up the duties according to their individual skills. The Bull may be over-indulgent, but that balances Virgo's tendency to perfectionism. Both parents will work hard to pass on strong values.
Capricorn and Virgo may not be the most demonstrative parents in the world, but both have a strong sense of family and tradition. Their children will never want for anything, including enough discipline to keep them on the path to successful adulthood.
Parenting may be the one area where two Virgos run into problems. Their natural tendency to perfectionism can make life difficult for each other and for their children.
Virgo and Capricorn are compatible in the bedroom, as long as Virgo is willing to follow Capricorn's lead. They each have a tendency to view pleasing a lover as an achievement, which is a good thing unless it devolves into a competition where no one is satisfied.
The physical relationship between two Virgos may be more companionable than sizzling, but that will suit the couple just fine. They may spend more time in bed talking than anything else, but both parties are likely to be perfectly content with that.
Of all the astrological signs, Taurus is the one most likely to find the passionate lover hiding behind Virgo's cool exterior. The Bull's patient persistence will eventually convince the timid Virgin that it's safe to just let go and enjoy the moment.
Sun signs are only one part of your astrological profile. Astrologists believe that other aspects of your birth chart modify your basic personality traits. The rising sign and the position of the moon and Venus have a strong influence on attraction and compatibility. A Virgo may find true love with a person of any sign who also has a Virgo ascendant, moon or Venus.
