Virgo - Pisces
Pisces is Water and Mutable. Virgo is Earth and Mutable. What Pisces majors in, Virgo does not even entertain. What Virgo thinks about constantly, Pisces sees as the “distractions of reality”. At first glance, they could hardly be more different. Sometimes this makes a good relationship. When there is love and attraction, the action of the divine can be involved - manifesting the need for transformation. Sometimes interesting relationships can be soul changing. Sometimes not. This may be the key to any attraction felt, and might be an essential to the Virgo’s growth with this person. The Pisces creates two feelings in the Virgo. Virgo watches the action of Neptune in the Fish’s life. Dreaming for a parking spot, waxing bold about long held dreams, thinking the unthinkable, having compassion on complete down and out strangers, dropping into a club, that Virgo alone would never do – these are all things the Virgin observes with its critical nature and rolls their eyes over. Then, on the deep interior, Virgo is envious and admiring at the same time. Just because Pisces falls out of bed doing what the Virgin could not contemplate, they are a mystery. If the Virgo is in a state of expansive growth in this lifetime, they might be growing toward loosening up many of their white-knuckle standards. If this is true, this could be the secret essence of Virgo’s attraction and love for its Fish.
Pisces inexplicable and sometimes unimaginable insight and comprehension, makes their life energy sometimes low on the basic details of life. The amazing thing is that the sometimes religious or mystical fervor that they have, allows them to live a modern stressful life. And then, the “Aha” occurs. Maybe this is why they are attracted to the Virgin. They see the utter innocence of the Soul, the loving and naïve heart that is marching through the world, trying to improve outer conditions wherever they go. Pisces is also a sweet soul. Both of these sweet souls have not only much to offer each other, but when they hold each other in each others’ arms, they can feel the unity working. Pisces knows much about the spiritual terrain of the soul. It may have travelled inwardly for many lifetimes. It is like knowing paths in the Himalayas. The grid up there would make the Virgo feel “foreign”. Pisces can help hold the hand and point out the stones in the mountain paths. And Virgo can make the budget, pay the bills, bring the right food and purchase the right books for the journey. This might be a little too heavy for this couple; however, it is a potential, but idealized way of understanding why these two would have something for each other.
Positive Postulate: The Fish and The Virgin can present a warm and pleasant image to the public. Positively, they could wake each morning with their different views of the world, but a harmony that comes from liking the fact that they do see it all differently. The positive postulate with this union is that they would be highly balanced. What one could not address, the other could. This would give them a “worldly” kind of understanding and a cosmopolitan way that might be surprising to their friends and relatives.
Romance Recommendation: Romance presents everyone with the challenge of blending the physical and the emotional, the psychic and the psychological. Romance and the need for it show the Fish and The Virgin that they can meet each other, with their differences, in the world of romance. Yes, they will be different in romance, like they are in everything else. The key will be in appreciating the differences. Neither are “high energy” dramatic acrobats. This would predict a happy mellow romance.
Conflict Quotient: Pisces, seeing the world as they do, can end up taking unpredictable points of view on many things. Virgo would tend to see that there is one answer to things. Conflict will be automatic here. How heated will be the big question. Hopefully, the soulful gentleness of each will alleviate extremes of opinion.
Peace Parlay: Life in the end is repetitive and mundane, and so is Romance itself. This factor asks the question: "Can we be bored together over the long term?" Pisces can stop in the middle of a murky underwater cave and inhabit it for a bit. Boredom could take over. But a second later they could be streaming along the surface. Virgo could hardly spell boring. The two could be outwardly and inwardly in a state of unrest practically all the time, leading to a distinct lack of boredom.
Keep Up The Interest Graph: Virgo can get so immersed in its schedules and agendas and helpful projects that a life of “interest” would be a good idea, it just has to be actually on their calendar. Pisces can provide plenty of ideas, both in the outerworld and the netherworld and the world of imagination.
Seven Year Itchiness: There are some signs that by their nature are more stable in their love interests and family concerns as time goes on. Others are not. Pisces could “wander off the reservation”, only by swimming too far, looking for what it was not sure of. Virgo would hopefully help prevent this possibility. Virgo would not tend to allow for a 7 year itch, but would definitely note it as something that others fall prey to.
ASTROCOMPATIBILITY POSSIBILITY RATING: 65% Positive Long Term - 70% Short Term. For short term relationships, their unique natures could magnetize. Long term, they would either find each other just too different, or be completely exploratory of how all of their differences could enhance the lives of each and truly begin to transform their personalities and inner selves.

Rebecca Rose: Stay close to that Pisces, and try to give her what she needs. Have you ever asked her that? I am sure youre fine. Blessings to you both.
Rebecca Rose on May 14, 2016:
I am a virgo and I absolutely, with all of my heart, body and soul LOVE my pisces best friend...She is a blessing in my life and brings the magic in me and in "The All" of life that surrounds me into light and color. Pisces understanding of virgo nature, and deep complexity is such a relief. She has always given me hope in the darkest moments and times of my deepest despair. Always encouraging my brightest light to SHINE for the heaven's to see...Thank you Pisces! I love you

Julia: Virgo is both innocent, making them somewhat simple. By that I mean "literal". They like the horizontal and the vertical. They do not look for complexity. AND they are critical. Why ? Because its all quite simple to them. Does that mean they are not loving? No. It means that they see it all quite clearly: "I have become perfect. And so, if I can just tweek you, you will be too." There you have it innocent understanding and criticism.
They understand tears because they are MANIFEST SADNESS. Pisces can carry a "world of hurt" and not shed a tear. Dont expect Virgin Insight. As Lucy and Ricky said: "I have to "splain" it to you." Sit your Virgo down and explain your issue. They do listen. They are quite wonderful. They want a better order.
Julia on September 24, 2015:
Basically I am wondering how to get a Virgo to understand the sensitive nature of a Pisces during conflict. Pisces do tend to retreat, but I feel that a Virgo has difficulty grasping the complexities of a Pisces.
ISIS on April 04, 2012:
Shay, I am a Pisces and I had a Virgo b-friend, he drove me nuts with his constant hounding and controlling behavior, I cut him lose... But I think in your situation it had more to do with his personality.
shay on August 06, 2010:
OMG, I am a virgo and I was involved with a picses and we never could see eye to eye. When happy, I was mad vice versa. When he would do something and I would be upset about, he was CLUELESS. He was horribe in bed and it would last for like a minute or less and he would be tired and I would nevere get anything out of it. It was just the worst relationship I ever encountered. Oh and let's not get started on his hurt feelings all the time by something I would say or if I was not paying him enough attention. Virgo's stay away from this sign, or maybe it was just me
summmer on March 10, 2010:
if somes here please help me out. I'm a fish and i've had a guy virgo best firend for also most a decade now. AT first we used to get along really well however now things have changed. Last year we used to get into a lot of agruements but than we would patch up again. However toward the end everything changed .... it tured out that those little fights were just promo's of the real hit...
we haven't talked for about 6months...that's the longest ever before it used to be just a week. However i can still feel a connetion i think he can to..
Tenzin on February 08, 2010:
So this is your second "how to get along" hub I've read and they've both been the most accurate and helpful astrology compatibility reports I've ever read! Usually astrologers never give advice like this and the depth and the way you analyzed the relationships is really spot on and true! Thanks so much for writing these! I'll be reading more!
Christofer French (author) from Denver on August 05, 2009:
Thanks very much. I have lots of these out there, and this is relatively new. I am starting a new website: astrologygetalong.com where all of these will be available in various forms. Are you a Virgo, or a Pisces?
Kari Poulsen from Ohio on August 05, 2009:
I can't believe I am the first to comment on this great hub! I really enj0yed it :D
