Leo and Virgo is a relationship which often presents a challenge and needs compromise on both sides. The low scores represent the initial compatibility of this match. However, if you can both adapt to the others style this is a relationship which will improve steadily over time, and eventually rival any other match.
These scores show the averages for data collected from my clients over the past 20 years. It's important to note however that individual relationships vary enormously. This is a summarized picture, a real compatibility reading is needed to judge a real relationship. It's also worth noting that Soulmates can be found in any sun sign match, even those which are statistically likely to have low compatibility.
This article is in two halves, the first is written from the viewpoint of the Leo man or Leo woman, and the second is written from the viewpoint of the Virgo man or Virgo woman.
This relationship is likely to be very easy initially, while your Virgo is showering you with attention. On the surface Leo Virgo makes a very good couple.
Your ambition and enthusiasm together with your partners practical nature and clear thinking. You'll encourage them to have fun, while they will help stabilize and organize your life - a great team!
You'll certainly be proud of this partner, who is always well groomed, and always has something funny to say. You're carefree, while they often take responsibility, duty and hard work every seriously. You can help them step back and let their hair down, where they otherwise wouldn't.
Where the problem arises is that you're both skilled organizers. Your approach is mainly to bend people to your will, while your Virgo prefers a more reserved and intellectual approach, always calm in a crisis and reserved in delivery. This is a resourceful and organized partner, not to be underestimated or bossed around, no matter how outwardly reserved they may appear.
In short, there's a good chance that your domineering personality will eventually annoy this reserved but deep thinking partner, who really doesn't like to say no to people. Your partners resentment will build up, until one day they crack.
This is a partner who can be very critical, both of themselves and others. Sooner or later they'll point out a fault or two in you, and overall you just don't do well with nit picking or personal criticism.
One of the above situations is very likely to create a vicious circle where you gradually infuriate each other. This is a partner with a very fast mind, capable of poking a hundred holes in something within minutes. A bad person to provoke into doing so, if that 'something' happens to be you!..
Other potential areas of conflict include finances, which are likely to be a big issue. You can be fairly extravagant, while this partner is likely to be frugal and cautious with money. On the positive side, they will probably be happy to balance your check book and keep you in line.
You like to socialize, whereas this partner often likes to stay home and relax instead. This is a partner who likes routine, whereas often you don't. They also probably wont share your need for occasional drama to keep life interesting. In this respect you may find them slightly boring, reserved or timid. Your outgoing nature may also make them feel somewhat insecure, if they think you're flirting.
The main issue here is that your partner often needs to step back from the responsibilities of day to day life before they can truly relax. You may not be the most patient person to enable this, and certainly wont appreciate it if they're distracted. On the positive side, if you're patient and prepared to make sacrifices this is a highly erotic lover, and well worth the extra work.
It's important to note however that we're looking only at sun signs here. There are many other planets which can have an equal or greater effect on someone's personality. Makes sense, as ultimately everyone is of course unique. Generalizing too far based just on sun signs can therefore be misleading.
To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet placements from their date of birth, and compare them to your own, and then interpret the results.
This unlocks the real power of astrology, and gives much more useful and specific information: everything from how they view you, how to turn them on, how to avoid arguments with them etc. If you would like to explore this further please see the compatibility readings page.
On the surface this can make for a good couple. Your practical nature and clear thinking, together with your partner's ambition and enthusiasm. You'll help organize their (probably chaotic!) life, while they encourage you to let your hair down and have fun occasionally - a great team!
Problems arise in two main areas. The first is that you're both very skilled organizers, you by thought process, and your Leo by force of will (regardless of whether they have an actual plan or not!). It's quite likely that often you'll have a solid plan, and your Leo will try to trample all over it in their desire to lead the way, which you may find somewhat infuriating at times.
The second area of potential problems is that you can be fairly critical, and criticism is the one thing sure to annoy a Leo! It wouldn't be nearly so bad if your fast mind wasn't capable of puncturing your Leos ego in a hundred different ways!
Both of the above are fairly likely to start a vicious circle of bossiness, resentment, criticism and arguments if they're not caught early. In this respect your Leo really prefers a timid partner, and while you may not be the best at saying 'no' you certainly don't like to have a partner walk all over you.
Finances are a third area which may cause friction in a Virgo Leo match. It's likely you will prefer it if your Leo worked a little harder, played a little less, and spent money a little more responsibly. On the other hand, this is partner who will encourage you to 'live a little' and as such if you can find middle ground you may both benefit.
As to other elements of your personalities, you tend to be fairly humble, while this partner just plain isn't, and you may come to dislike their need for drama as a means to get attention. Similarly, they like to socialize and be the center of attention, while you often prefer a more routine and peaceful life.
Flirting is a final area of potential conflict. While your Leo is very likely to be loyal once committed, they have a fundamental need for the admiration and approval of others. There can be a very fine line between this and flirting.
This can be a wonderful relationship, however the reality is that it's unlikely to just fall into place. You'll each need to understand and respect the other persons needs and viewpoint, and be willing to meet in the middle on some of these differences.
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 for each of you, with a real astrology reading...
