Are you Virgo who tries to build something serious with Scorpio? Or are you as Scorpio interested in any Scorpio compatibility, Virgo included? Do you want to know if a Virgo-Scorpio relationship work? Then this article is for you! Check out everything you need to know about Virgo and Scorpio compatibility.
Quick reminder on the main zodiac sign groups:
Fire signs – Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius
Water signs – Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces
Earth signs – Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn
Air signs – Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius
Water, earth, air, and fire – these are the four elements of the zodiac. And within each element are three. While each sign has some uniqueness, there are some general traits that all signs within one element have in common. These general traits exist in various levels depending on the modality of the three signs within each element (cardinal, fixed, or mutable), birth date and time (ruling planets), and a number of other factors.

And it’s worth looking at the commonalities within the four elements because these can, in general, predict the astrological compatibility of two signs in relationships, friendships, and even professional work situations.
Here is what you need to know about zodiac signs:
Now that you know where you are, you probably want to know where others with whom you have relationships also sit – whether they are friends, would-be lovers, or co-workers. And especially in the area of romance, you will want to know if the two of you are compatible. For that, you’ll have to delve deeper than the short descriptions above.
The compatibility of two signs on the zodiac wheel is synastry. And in terms of Virgo and Scorpio compatibility, synastry can give you answers to many questions:
Unless you understand how the astrology zodiac is constructed, it will be difficult to “read” what it tells you about your romantic and sexual compatibility. A couple of factors that play major roles are the space between the signs on the chart (60% for these two) and the position of the planets on the date and time of birth. While this is all very complex, the synastry between Virgo and Scorpio is definitely good. In fact, they are described as having an intense karmic bond.
An earth sign (Virgo) and a water sign (Scorpio) can actually be a pretty good match.
Being ruled by Mercury, Virgo is a mutable, earth sign that tends to be rational and analytical and wants to be of service to others. Its symbol is the virgin. While Virgos tend to think things through, almost to a fault sometimes, they are open to sharing their thoughts and feelings with those around them. People don’t usually see the emotional side of Virgos.
Scorpio is a fixed water sign, the eighth sign of the zodiac. Scorpios can be pretty intense, but also deep thinkers and somewhat mysterious. They don’t always open up and let others see their inner selves. Their sign is the scorpion, and their nature is highly sensual.
At first glance, these two don’t seem to have a lot in common. But that may just be the point. Together, they can balance the emotional and the rational and find in each other a partner in either friendship or love life.
It’s probably the tendency that both have to question and analyze, and it can bring about compatibility in their initial friendship or as romantic partners. In fact, given Scorpio intensity, there can be a whirlwind romance before reality settles in, and they begin to see some differences. But even then, the strong bond between the virgin and the scorpion will meet these challenges and overcome them.
Think about it this way. Scorpio and Virgo have some opposite traits that can bring a great balance to a friendship or a collaboration in the workplace. Scorpio is more mystical, while Virgo tends to be more creative. They can teach one another.
And because both have the ability to focus with intensity, having a collaborative project at work is ideal – either in research or in artistic creation, such as a film documentary, for example.
The same applies to Scorpio-Virgo compatibility in friendships. They bring a nice balance and can fill a mutual need in a relationship. This kind of compatibility can result in life-long friendships that are based on both being extremely loyal to one another. And when Scorpios and Virgos share the same values, all the better.
A Virgo-Scorpio love match can be a bit complicated, but, again, their intensity is something to be admired. Virgos tend to be somewhat reserved and take a more rational, analytical approach to form a love relationship, so the Scorpio can be a bit over the top. Scorpios come on strong but, at the same time, keep their true emotions rather close to the vest.
Remember, Scorpios are a bit mysterious by nature. For both Virgos and the Scorpio, trust does not come quickly. But once it does come, there is no stronger bond. And once that bond is formed, it is at a deep level. These two thrive in each other’s company and are fully content to shut out the rest of the world just to enjoy their life partnership for a while.
The passionate Scorpio and nurturing Virgo fall among the best matches. But remember, Virgo does not make decisions quickly. And the Scorpio has a suspicious personality, not inclined to be impulsive. Each partner appreciates this in the other. So, when they make key decisions about things that really matter, they are very much together.
Virgos will find that a Scorpio partner is as intense in their sex life as they are in life. And while more intellectual, Virgo is no less intense. The passion and emotion of Scorpio can bring the usually modest Virgo to new heights in sexuality. The one possible problem? Scorpios are quite sexy, and if the Virgo-Scorpio bond is not solidified, that Scorpio may stray. And they may be quite secretive about it.

Virgos are modest and reserved and don’t enjoy being in the spotlight. And Scorpio is extremely private and extremely hard to read. In this respect, the personality of each boosts their relationship.
The other commonality is their protective nature. It is Virgo’s nature to protect themselves from their most intimate thoughts until they have full trust in someone else. And Scorpios protect themselves even to a greater degree. As mentioned, they are highly secretive.
Virgo and Scorpio are both private, tend to be deep thinkers, and are protective of their innermost selves until they can fully trust. And even in that trusting relationship, Virgos may come forward and exhibit a bit more loyalty than Scorpios.
Virgo and Scorpio relationships are not without conflict. While they can be amazing partners in a relationship, it’s important to remember that both have trouble with trust. Virgo’s response to Scorpio’s secretive nature can be to lose trust – something a Scorpio will have to work hard to regain. As a mutable water element, the Virgo is willing to adapt but not when trust is cracked.
If there are disagreements, the Virgo-Scorpio relationship can suffer because both have difficulty opening up. Getting to the innermost thoughts and feelings about an issue can be a bit like digging through a haystack for the needle.
They may become detached, at least temporarily, until they have gotten their thinking and emotions under control – Virgo the thinking; Scorpio the emotions.
Virgo, an earth sign, is ruled by Mercury, something that makes them good communicators. And, like all earth signs, a Virgo tends to be logical, rational, and a bit slow to make final decisions. They are cautious. At the same time, Virgo is a mutable earth sign which means it can adapt to situations and people more easily than fixed and cardinal signs.
Scorpio, a water sign, is ruled by both Mars and Pluto. This means their communications and interactions can be deep and emotional. And as a fixed water sign, Scorpio is less adaptable than Virgo. Still, once the suspicious and secretive Scorpio learns to trust in a relationship, he can be more willing to open up and appreciate the values of someone who is a mutable sign.
While at first glance Virgo and Scorpio do not seem to have a lot in common, when you dig down into the details of their commonalities, it is easier to understand how a Virgo-Scorpio match can really work well. Once they come to trust each other, they both achieve emotional security that results in great friendships and romantic/sexual partners.
