Virgo and Libra is often a hard match to make work. Intellectually you're on a similar page, while emotions and temperaments are further apart.
The low scores represent the initial compatibility based on this, 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. The low scores then represent a high initial challenge, and not a long term pessimistic view.
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 Virgo man or Virgo woman, and the second is written from the viewpoint of the Libra man or Libra woman.
Both of you are analytical rather than emotional, and you are both good communicators, preferring a rational and objective style. Both of you prefer to avoid confrontation where possible - so differences may go unspoken and cause resentment rather than knock down fights.
You like to be productive while your Libra is much more relaxed. One significant difference in this relationship will be this conflicting interest in work versus play. Sometimes you're likely to see your partner as flighty, indecisive or lazy, while they see you as too serious, a stick in the mud or even a workaholic.
Along similar lines, you're methodical and precise, while your partner is carefree and reckless by your standards. You're inclined to be a pessimist by nature, while your partner is more optimistic.
These differences are no bad thing for either of you, if you can both meet in the middle somewhere you can both learn and grow from each others perspective. Sometimes of course that's easier said than done. You both need to be willing to understand and respect each others needs and viewpoints and be tolerant of them.
You're reclusive and often quiet, while your Libra is sociable and talkative. You'll probably consider them to be flirty by your standards, and in general you may feel insecure due to this. Everyone is different, and for many Libras getting confirmation that they're attractive is a central way to maintaining their self confidence.
You tend to be fairly reserved when it comes to expressing love and affection either verbally or physically, while your partner is very open, and may feel somewhat 'lonely' in this relationship due to this, especially when combined with your inclination towards being verbally critical at times. Try to open up as much as possible with this partner, and avoid being too critical.
You're both classy and sophisticated, and take care with appearance and grooming. This is likely to be a relationship where you are each proud of the others appearance, so there's little friction there.
Financially you may come to find your partner somewhat extravagant, and not inclined to save money, which may become a point of contention if the area is particularly important to you. Libras often enjoy maintaining a fairly large wardrobe...
Likely to be the next strongest area of this relationship after communication. You want to improve the relationship in all ways, while your Libra wants to make you happy and ensure the relationship works. This match of subtly different yet equally selfless views makes for a very solid synergy. Try not to be too critical in this area, and accept you can learn things from each others styles.
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.
You're both analytical rather than emotional, both are good communicators (you more socially, your Virgo more in one on one situations). Both of you prefer to avoid confrontation, so differences may go unspoken and cause resentment rather than knock down fights.
You're both classy and sophisticated, and take care with appearance and grooming, and no doubt this will be one of the first things you notice and respect about each other. If nothing else, you're a good looking couple!
You'll find this is a partner who has to be productive, and one significant difference between you in this relationship will be a conflicting interest between work versus play. You will likely consider your partner to be too serious at times, while they may come to consider you as too flighty, indecisive or even lazy.
Along similar lines, your fun and carefree nature may not always be approved of by this exceptionally methodical and precise partner. These differences are no bad thing for either of you, you can both learn a lot if you can meet in the middle, though of course that's easier said than done sometimes.
You're an optimist by nature, while your Virgo is sometimes pessimistic. You're sociable and talkative, while this is a partner who is likely to be far more reclusive and quiet. They may well view you as flirty if you go too far in this area, and may feel insecure in the relationship due to this.
Your partner tends to be fairly reserved when it comes to expressing love and affection, either verbally or physically, while you are very open. You may start to feel somewhat lonely in this relationship due to this.
While you may not get told 'I love you' as often as you might like, you will probably get an abundance of criticism and faults pointed out to you sometimes - making for a particularly bad match from your standpoint. Don't hesitate to point this out and modify that behavior.
Financially your partner may find you somewhat extravagant, and not inclined to save money. Sometimes Virgos can be very efficient with money, and your partner may cringe when discovering you never balance your checking account or perform monthly reconciliations! On the bright side, you couldn't find a better person to do it for you! You may come to see your partner is frugal, when really their interest is in the efficiency aspect - maximizing the use of money, rather than from any greed standpoint.
Likely to be the next strongest area of this relationship after communication. You both tend to be selfless lovers who put your partner ahead of yourself. Ironically this setup of all give and no take can often dampen the overall passion. You each need to be more selfish sometimes in order to turn up the heat a little. This will likely be harder for your Virgo than for you, so you may need to lead the way in this direction.
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...
