Note, this article is written from the viewpoint of the Virgo man or Virgo woman. There is a separate article from the viewpoint of the Cancer man or Cancer woman available here Cancer and Virgo
Virgo Cancer is a very harmonious combination, where you each will bring out the best in the other. You have a lot in common and will intuitively understand each other, and provide the support and stability you each enjoy. Unlike some partners, this is a person who will consistently build your self confidence.
This is a partner who can be very emotional and moody, and thus unpredictable. In this combination it's no bad thing, as you have the patience and understanding to take these moods in your stride, and your natural stability will do much to ground your Cancer until they pass.
You both like to feel needed, secure and loved and will provide this to each other. You also both like order, stability and routine in a relationship you're both highly affectionate and enjoy pleasing a partner. It's likely you'll be comfortable with each other from a very early point in this combination.
You're both very hard working, though for slightly different reasons. Cancer likes to amass security for a rainy day, while you have an intrinsic need to always be productive. The result is identical, and you will come to respect each other in this area.
You're on the same page financially, both preferring to spend conservatively, and both have a great appreciation for the home, often preferring to stay in rather than going out to party.
On the negative side, you both can be somewhat critical at times, and this may lead to nagging and some irritation. You both also tend to worry a lot, and may have trouble offering much support to each other.
Virgo Cancer sex
As in other areas you'll appreciate your partners sensitivity and emotional depth. You both can be very sensual, and there wont be any shortage of passion in this relationship. This is a very caring partner who will have the patience to always bring out the best in you.
So is this article conclusive?
No! This article is based only on sun sign interaction. In order to provide a lot of people with information it's a convenient and fast way to generalize, but it's far from conclusive at this broad level.
To get a complete picture we need to take all the other planets and their interactions into account. If you would like more information for your unique relationship please see the astrology compatibility reports page.
Other resourcesOften the best way to establish for yourself how compatible you are is to ask your partner questions. Sounds obvious and easy, but in practice it can be awkward.
Often the hardest questions to ask are the most important - for example, what are their views and expectations for raising children? sharing housework? saving money? career goals? etc.
One subtle and fun way to approach this is by working through a couples question book together - that way it's not really you asking, and delicate subjects can be covered easily. The best book for this I've found is Michael Webb's 1000 Questions For Couples
For reviews of this and other relationship ebooks on subjects ranging from improving your sex life to getting an ex back please see the relationship ebook reviews page.
A third method of further research is to share experiences with other couples of this same sign combination - you may be amazed how consistent they often are. Please see the links below for visitor experiences and questions.
In any relationship there are also very significant external factors. One of these is how well you understand yourself, your partner and your partnership - the more you do, the easier it is to make the relationship more exciting, fulfilling and satisfying for both of you, regardless of your starting position. The articles on how to Make him fall in love with you and Make her fall in love with you have information on how you can use astrology to revitalize a relationship.

The information on this page applies equally to gay or lesbian relationships. Overall, gender affects relationships far less than planet placement does, so it's currently ignored to avoid articles becoming overburdened with gender permutations.
