Are the zodiac signs Virgo and Gemini compatible? There are many areas in life that these two signs may be able to connect, and just as many where they would not.
A Virgo is someone born between August 22 – September 23. Virgos are kind, shy, and analytical in nature. Being an earth sign, they are strongly compatible with water signs Pisces and Cancer and are a mutable sign. In contrast, a Gemini (born from May 21 – June 21) is curious, adaptable, and has the ability to think and learn fast. They are most compatible with another air sign Aquarius as well as the fire signs of Sagittarius, and Aries. Geminis are a mutable sign just like Virgo, which is one of the things these two signs have in common. Gemini is known as an optimistic sign in astrology and Virgo is rather pessimistic.
While a Virgo and a Gemini would both be ruled by the planet Mercury and are, these zodiac signs reveal the planet’s influence in different ways. A Gemini, a masculine sign, seeks to explore and enjoy life to the fullest, they excel in the written and spoken word, they love to travel, learn new things, freedom, and they strive to seek the good in the bad and the bright in the dark. Virgo, the feminine sign, remains shy, sensitive, and sometimes self-critic. The influence of Mercury in this sign is manifested by logical thinking and analyzing.
Since their ruling planet is Mercury, they are strong thinkers and communicators. Even if they fight, both are able to communicate clearly and effectively. The big advantage is that, as communicators, they can tell each other what they like or dislike about them, or what they would like to change in their relationship or life together.
Virgos and Gemini both have strong intellects but their opinions on intellect do differ. A Virgo could view a Gemini as “stupid” because of their superficial nature and setting big dreams that Virgo finds impossible to achieve. As a result of their intelligence being undercut (as Gemini’s are not stupid), they become purposefully more annoying to their Virgo counterpart. In contrast, a Gemini may find a Virgo’s attention to detail obsessive and they will see Virgo as someone who doesn’t have big dreams and questions everything. Virgos will not fight this rebuke but internalize it and privately cry about it.
Virgo and Gemini As Friends
Friendships can blossom between these two signs if they can overcome their intellectual differences. After all, they do share emotional intelligence and key values. A Virgo and a Gemini are both practical and resourceful. Where they differ from each other is in a Gemini’s need to explore and move from place to place. Geminis have a harder time forming emotional bonds because they are often traveling and do not give themselves time to build these bonds or understand their own feelings.
Gemini wants to settle down once in their lives and live a quiet and happy life, but first, they want to enjoy life to the fullest, learn a lot, and see a lot of places. The down-to-earth sign of Virgo doesn’t like Gemini’s lifestyle and approach to life, and they would prefer someone who wasn’t like a loose cannon, and who would stand firmly on the ground.
Trust between a Virgo and a Gemini is extremely difficult to manage because of the nature of the two beings. Geminis are tricksters who deal with their problems by fleeing. In comparison, Virgos’ self-doubt leads them to huge trust issues. Combining these two qualities together is a recipe for disaster. This could lead to huge fights about trust and fidelity.
For a relationship to survive, a Gemini would need to respect their partners’ sensitive nature and a Virgo would have to be able to open up about their feelings and not be so pessimistic.
Virgo and Gemini in Bed
Gemini and Virgo are not very sexually compatible. This is due to their inability to trust each other coupled with their social differences. The Gemini partner is outgoing while their Virgo counterparts are more introverted. Or vice versa. There are also a number of shy and introverted Gemini and extroverted Virgos.
When it comes to jealousy or suspicions of infidelity, Virgo is extremely jealous and distrustful in this regard. If it’s just a guess or an outpouring of a bad mood of Virgo, Gemini will pack their legs on their shoulders and run away. Even for just one night to sleep over at their friend’s house. Gemini doesn’t like false accusations and loses confidence in Virgo. Gemini is also a fairly jealous sign, but before they make a hasty conclusion, they verify that what they thought is true and try to gather information from as many sources as possible.
In bed, Virgo is rather dominant and sees climax as the main goal of intimate intercourse. Their Gemini lover, who is both giver and receiver, perceive time in bed with their partner as an evening at an amusement park. They want both of them to be satisfied, to try new things, and be able to talk to their partner all night (even after their “happy moment”) until they slowly fall asleep in their arms. In the morning, the Gemini wants to talk about their pleasant moments in bed, while Virgo is silent and pretends that nothing happened last night.
Mercury is the vehicle that can bring these two horoscope signs together as well as separate them. People who were born under these signs live in their heads and typically do not follow their hearts. It is important for a Gemini and Virgo to find acceptance in each others’ intellectual pursuits and not disparage the others’ intelligence. If this can be accomplished, this pairing will be able to create a heaven on earth by bringing the forces of Mercury (air and earth) together.
