Leo and Virgo Compatibility:
Love, Sex, Trust and Life
Most of the people who are Virgos are observant, persevering and quite able in handling the mundane realities. Their life-style is usually very down to earth and pragmatic This genre of people are very keen on being successful and plan well to reach their by taking short but accurate steps in moving towards and reaching their goal. Their apparent demeanour is unfeeling and artificial. However, their empathy for people and the compassion they feel are suppressed deep within; but so far as their loved ones are concerned they are surprisingly warm and giving. Any relationship that stems from them remains somewhat fragile, even over a period of time. On the rare occasions that a relationship does actually grow, the intensity of feeling still will not be there. It is just not in the Virgo to be sentimental. They are very self-sufficient and can handle just about whatever life throws at them.
When the relationship is still very young, both Virgo and Leo can only find faults in each other. Leo might appear too dictatorial and Virgo far too judgemental. However if they manage to take the time to not find fault with each and everything the other does, there will definitely be discovery of an attraction. There is no doubting Virgo is definitely not spontaneous. Leo points out to Virgo that there can be good times and fun times which need not be planned for at length. In turn Virgo helps the Leo to learn the art of patience and means of focussing their intellectual energy. Leo might feel that too much of an eye is being kept on him, but will provide inspiration for their partner to relax a little. Virgo may feel that Leo is too inconsiderate, but is able to show them how to be a little more sensitive.
The very essence of the Leo personality is brilliance, grandeur and majesty. This is the determining factor that is characteristic of any and everything that they pursue. The goal or objective is as important as the grandest of manners in which it is pursued; it could be just for themselves, their families or lovers or even colleagues – that does not make very much of a difference. It is a major difficulty for most people to live life on such a high note all the time. However, the Leo combines this with suppleness and bravery and thus reaches the desired level of success. There could be a resentment of their high-handed attitude, but it is also natural for the Leo to obtain the deference and esteem that they demand for themselves.
Virgo and Leo are Mutable and Fixed signs respectively. Virgos like to focus on innumerable things at the same time and are also fond of working very very hard. Leo has a different perspective and it is the breath of life to him to take control of any assignment and then delegate it to the others to execute. There is a lack of ego clash in the relationship and that helps both these signs to bypass disagreeable character allegations.
When the Virgo and Leo actually get together, a very pleasant aura or harmony is created as they enjoy themselves together. Virgo is by nature very polite and compliant and thus makes the perfect partner for the dominating Leo who loves to assert his authority. Being well aware of this fact the Leo tends to be that much more assertive. Since the Virgo is a great admirer of the Leos’ organizational abilities, they normally do not have any issues about this. What might be a good idea is be more expressive about their admiration for the Leo. When the question is about those in a spot or needy, the Leo is unhesitatingly open about showing practicality and faith and devotion. At such time all ego issues disappear and they are fully focussed on showering their generosity.
Virgo and Leo are ruled by Mercury and the Sun respectively. Virgo plays the role of stretching out a hand to the others and carefully works out all the mutations and combinations before finalizing any deal. On the other hand, Leo while radiating brightness and cheer waits for the world to applaud and greet their august presence. It would be a wise option for both these signs to take some time hand to observe the worth of the other’s approach. Virgo could learn to be less critical from Leo and in turn Leo could take in how to remain more stable and balanced from Virgo.
Thanks to the abundance of differences between them, there is always the possibility of fireworks and clashes between them. Virgo is never quite comfortable with the Leo’s habit of self-praising and ego problems. In turn the Leo can feel deeply hurt at the Virgo’s apparent coldness and no outward show (at least) of utmost devotion. But once both have garnered enough tolerance to bear each other’s foibles, their relationship can move from strength to strength. What Leo gets is someone who looks up with utter devotion at them; Virgo in turn is more than happy to have found someone who is quite happy to take on the reins of authority and work hard in the limelight. If both these signs let loose a little on their predominant characteristics, the bonds become loving and strong. There is mysticism and an element of mysticism all around.
In the initial stages of a romance Leo and Virgo could feel that they have nothing to gain from each other and forget all about their common interests. There is gradual evolvement over time and both the people involved learn to have a better empathy and appreciation of the other. Leo can be rather short-tempered and yet extremely charming and with oodles of personality. Virgo is more of an introverted intellectual and yet is a lot more versatile than Leo. Their love relationship can be wondrous when both learn to accept their differences and move on.
Both Virgo and Leo admire the other for completion of any task at hand in their own individual style and yet are absolutely chary about remembering to thank the other. If the Virgo is not given due credence for what he has done, he no longer remains quiet and gives the Leo to understand all the defects in Leo and all the wrongs that they have done. Leo finds such behaviour intolerable and such hostility towards themselves unbearable. They in turn become cold and just move away. If such behaviour can be avoided then the bonds are loving and strong. Loyalty will prove to the Virgo that Leo is someone to be respected and has many worthy qualities like faithfulness and devotion. Virgos have the capability of showering Leo with a lot of attention which they feel they so richly deserve.
Virgo and Leo are Earth and Fire signs. When Leos begin a new assignment, they do not bother about the reason for doing what they are doing; Virgo on the other hand is far more practical. Virgo thinks about what the effect of the course of action may be. Leo on the other hand plunges straight on without a thought of what might transpire.
As leader and follower the Virgo Leo combination is a deadly one. The scenario works best when Leo takes the front-end initiative and Virgo looks after all the details. In a family relationship or where bonds with friends and colleagues are concerned, Leo is unstinting in his Love, while Virgo is extremely good with thorough advice. They make very good colleagues, but there is always a sense of rivalry because they always competitors as well; they both don’t mind working hard at all, but like an abundance of praise – loud and clear. In a marital relationship an abundance of lenience and tolerance is required. Parenthood is very suited to both Virgo and Leo and the children are taught to admire and respect.
Virgos and Leos are totally dissimilar in almost every respect. The way they look at the world is almost in the opposite directions. Hence particular attention has to be paid if their relationship has to continue. However, there are never any problems with authority and if a little bit of tolerance comes into the picture, a very healthy relationship can result.
The effectiveness of their relationship is the best part of the Virgo-Leo association. In every sense of the word Leo commands by his presence respect and focus by highlighting their social make-up and keeping to their schedule as regards novel ideas, where the only motivation is thrills and excitement. Virgo is a behind the scenes worker and keeping to the essential routine details which no longer holds the Leos interest. Their divergent personalities provide a perfect foil for each other.
