When their ascendants and moon signs are in harmonious aspect, Virgo and Leo will get along beautifully, with Virgo gently supporting Leo’s creative endeavors.
But if the Sun-Moon aspect between them is square or opposed, or their ascendants are not compatible, they may experience a power struggle. While Leo is not sadistic and Virgo is not masochistic by nature, there is a tendency for them to develop a sadomasochistic bond. Leo can be overly demanding and expect Virgo to consider them as superior and Virgo being so docile, self-effacing, and polite, may go along with it at first.
Leo and Virgo Friendship Compatibility
Since Leos can be bossy and domineering, they may chronically speak down to Virgos, creating an unhealthy pattern that erodes the love between them. But eventually, the Virgo who has been obedient for far too long will snap and verbally attack Leo in retaliation, criticize their flaws, and walk away for good.
Then the opposite scenario may unfold as Leo becomes the masochistic victim and Virgo picks them apart with an analytical eye and convinces them that their dreams are impractical and foolish.
As a result, Leo will be robbed of their gift of courage and begin second-guessing their every move. The good news is that this dynamic is quite rare and certainly impermanent. Eventually, the Leo will roar and frighten away the Virgo, who may disappear for good.
If this dynamic is worked through or avoided, these two can get along beautifully. Leo will appreciate the gentle devotion and intelligence of Virgo and Virgo will greatly respect Leos’s impressive achievements, warmth, and generosity. Virgo will also appreciate that Leo is strong enough to be vulnerable and ask for support since Virgo loves feeling useful and Leo gives them plenty of opportunities to serve.
Once Virgo understands that Leo is not there to be criticized at every turn and Leo understands that Virgo is not a servant but an ally, they can enjoy a deeply meaningful and tender connection.
While Leo can be quite melodramatic and vain, they are also practical and organized enough to get the job done. Virgo, being a practical earth sign, admires this greatly but needs to learn to express this appreciation to Leo. Similarly, while Leo appreciates Virgo’s efforts to do the best they can with each task, they may not express their appreciation as often as they do for other people they rely on.
Leo and Virgo Relationship Compatibility for Marriage
In a romantic relationship, Leo will expect and delight in any display of appreciation, however grandiose it might seem to the other signs. Bowing before them, bringing them breakfast in bed, or indulging them in royal style will never feel over the top, but completely natural. While they may not openly demand such displays, they will never turn them down and always accept them graciously.
Virgo may find it difficult to display their affection verbally or in gestures, due to their timid nature. They may take a long time saying ‘I love you’ or even holding hands with Leo in public. They may choose to focus on Leo’s lack of financial acumen instead of giving them a much-desired compliment. And Leo being too proud, may never ask for one and instead try to bury their emotional pain.
Virgo does not like living in disorganized and messy surroundings and will quickly start to feel nervous and overwhelmed if forced to do so. They are normally conservative, grounded, and efficient (unless the Moon or Ascendant is in a Fire of Air sign) and detest waste of any kind, whether of resources or energy. If Virgo is forced to leave their belongings behind, for instance, they may feel as though they’re missing an appendage.
Leo can be loud and is prone to emotional displays, which can leave Virgo feeling shocked and frazzled. Any public humiliation is especially difficult for Virgo to take since they feel the pain of it so acutely.
Leo has a tendency to overspend and may be careless with organizing Virgo’s belongings in the home. Leo may also leave their things all over the place, as though they expected a maid to pick up after them. They may grow quickly annoyed with Virgo for every minor transgression, perhaps even feeling entitled to lecture them in front of guests. You can only imagine how these actions would make the meek Virgo feel.
Leo may also regale Virgo with stories of their former relationships, perhaps at inopportune times like when Virgo is just trying to get a good night’s sleep. Then they may wonder why Virgo shuts down to intimacy.
Leos can go from being self-absorbed to loving and gracious provided that Virgo gives them the adoration they crave. Similarly, Virgo can go from being detached and finicky to doting, attentive, and calm, if they know that their advice doesn’t fall on deaf ears.
Criticizing Leo is guaranteed to bring trouble and Virgo has to keep this inclination in check. While Leo may appear to have a higher tolerance than they actually do for criticism, Virgo has to remember that it’s just a show due to pride. The criticism actually hurts Leo more when it’s coming from the Virgo they love.
The only way Virgo can change Leo is through subtle suggestions, not through belittling and nagging. Instead of tearing apart what Leo has built, Virgo needs to suggest better plans. It may be hard for Virgo to manage, but Leo has to have the impression that they are beyond criticism.
Virgo may find it difficult to repress their judgmental instinct, but they will have to if they want to keep their Leo partner around. Virgo must learn to give Leo the admiration they’re hungry for. As they dole out attention, appreciation, and flattery, they’ll quickly see how much more loving, outgoing, and warm their beloved Leo becomes.
Leo’s sunny disposition needs to shine in order for their hope, happiness, and effervescent personality to fully express itself and bring light and upliftment to Virgo’s life. If Leo is not appreciated, they can grow bored and lazy and fail to engage in this way.
In return, Leo needs to understand Virgo’s need to solve every problem that comes their way and how afraid they are of disorder and chaos. Leo can help Virgo to build greater tolerance for imperfection and see it as a part of the messy beauty of life. They can show Virgo how perfection can actually become dull and sterile since it lacks the colorful variety of the unknown. Leo also needs to be gentle with Virgo’s feelings and truly listen when Virgo is sharing their thoughts and feelings, instead of simply waiting for their turn to speak.
Leo and Virgo in Bed
Without strong mental and emotional communication, Leo and Virgo will find their sexual life lacking. Virgo’s lovemaking may feel mechanical and more detached than Leo would like. If Leo shows their disapproval, Virgo will only pull away more and grow more distant. If Leo also grows cold and Virgo brings their criticism into the bedroom, it can spell disaster for their sexual union.
Virgo needs to give themselves space to express their sexual desire more freely and see lovemaking as an opportunity to merge, bond emotionally, and share intimacy, instead of keeping their guard up and trying to maintain control. Leo needs to realize that passion doesn’t always display in overt ways and can be subtle and quiet. As they change their attitudes, they can find deep and lasting sexual fulfillment.
Leo and Virgo Emotional Compatibility
Virgo presents the energy of emotional security to Leo, who senses that there are many lessons to be learned from their intelligent and thoughtful partner. Likewise, Virgo will grow more understanding of Leo’s freedom-loving nature the longer they spend together.
Virgo certainly takes pride in Leo’s accomplishment and radiant charisma. Their loving bond will only grow stronger over time as Leo practices patience and avoids giving into selfishness.
Virgo can swing from being hypersensitive to grossly insensitive, yet is always seeking equality and peace. As Virgo finds this inner equilibrium, they are capable of some tender and touching gestures.
If their life together grows too monotonous and predictable, it’s Leo’s job to infuse their union with fresh air, sunshine and sparkle.
