How To Get Along – Virgo and Scorpio
The Virgin and The Scorpion
This series on Astro Compatibility will cover all of the potential match-ups in the Zodiac. We will continue this series thinking about and commenting on Virgo and Scorpio.
Virgo - Scorpio
Scorpio is Water and Fixed. Virgo is Earth and Mutable. Scorpio’s fixity is internally realized. Scorpio embodies the inner quest for control and power. Virgo’s quest is for perfectibility of the around. Virgo has a Virginal and Naïve approach, in which power does not emerge as an issue. They are mainly concerned with the rightness and correctness of what they are doing. This would not strike people immediately as a great match. A look at astrological specifics in the moon or rising signs, or specific aspects in their individual charts might be beneficial, because these two do not have lots in common, but ironically they have much to offer each other.
The Virginal Mind
The Virginal mind has its hopefulness, but that hopefulness combined with its innocence leads to a shakiness that leads to moping. Their plans have not been dashed, but they are always working on a vision of collapse or disappointment. This gives them a kind of sadness that could be characterized as a moodiness.
Scorpio’s company tends to offset this tendency because of their strong inner psychological structure that seems to defy so many potential threats. Since Scorpio lives in a very convoluted interior network of drama, victory, defeat, sudden events and the potentially unanticipated, they tend to be suspicious. In their minds, it helps them to be suspicious. The way they look at things, everyone could be a potential danger to one degree or another. It is in this way that apparently "oppositional" signs can bring salubrious and almost medicinal qualities to the other.
This "oppositional", but potentially cooperative pair could make good things out of a new union, association, company or marriage. Scorpio, because of its qualities has much to share other signs. Virgo is blessed with its naiveté to a degree that almost makes them impervious to the pulsating threat that many other sun signs feel around the (Scorpion, Eagle, Dove). Imagine a “toughened” up Virgo and a more relaxed Scorpio.
Romance brings the physical and the psychological together, especially in this pair. The disarming quality of Virgo can make Scorpio let down its guard and declassify so many of its internal secrets. Scorpio with its guard down can bring real healing to what often is a highly complicated past and present. Virgo’s innocent and open way can get some education from the Scorpion and get in touch with some human emotions and thoughts that they might not otherwise have.
Scorpio, (whether a lizard, a scorpion, an eagle or a dove) can bring way too much power to an angry battle. That is why it should not do so with a Virgo. Virgo should also work on its tendency to always find fault and make corrections, as Scorpio will take those cuts and abrasions in a more serious way than Virgo really intends. When neither is in the act of trying to bring pain or shame into the script, then the unfolding of life, because of conflict’s effect on the soul, can take place.
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?" For these two boredom might be sought out. Their always active craniums could use a little peace and solace. Virgo must repair the battering that it sometimes gives itself. Scorpio can unplug the circuits every once in a while and go to “off”. Since boredom, as a cause for relationship mortification is not a likelihood, it’s worth the time they spend together quietly.
Keep Up The Interest Graph:
Virgo will always have a new idea, some good, most all generously provided. Scorpio will most likely enjoy new interesting ideas, especially since it is from Virgo.
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. This is an unusual union, and if it is actually working in this wonderful way I have been describing. If not, then 7 would not be a magic number.
ASTROCOMPATIBILITY POSSIBILITY RATING: 70% Positive Long Term - 50% Short Term. This unusual match could work early and fascinatingly, and then through discovery, find a unique peace for each other. This is not an easy match, but wonderfully intriguing to ponder as a strong possibility.

Lover: OK, so you're a Libra with a preponderance of Scorp, and he is a Scorp. Well, we are talking about Scorp here, so lets be real. Both of you deal in the secret, the mysterious, the potentially fearful and the ALWAYS intense. But wait. Its not that things ARE that way. Its just that in your heads you are always hatching drama magnetism and fear tinged situations. Don't over think it all. Dive in. Smile Libra. He's fearful because Scorps want others to fear. Of course he is fearful. You guys specialize in it. You're overwhelmed, so BE overwhelmed. See what happens. You both might surprise each other. Its only LIFE. Leap and Love. If you don't get in too many fights, you may be happy as a lark. Or, maybe a Hawk, or an Eagle, but still you can fly. Blessings.

Hello I loved this reading .....however I am a scorpio who has been dealing with a Virgo on and of since 2009 now all of a sudden boom I am totally in love with this man. I wake up thinking of him and go to sleep thinking of him. He expresses his love to me every single day. However he tells me that he is scared of me which I don't understand maybe I have been coming on to strong. We are both in the same place in life right now and I'm pushing him to pursue his dreams we both are going to become truck drivers just so we can open our own trucking company in the near future. Which was mainly his dream with my bigger picture pushed behind it. Christofers, only if you knew how much this man means to me I feel some magnetic connection with him that keeps me thinking of him no matter what I'm doing. He tells me he is mine and I am his but I can't all the way tell because we can't see each other when we won't because of the distance in between our homes. This is driving me crazy how can I tell if he really loves me? Should I back up? How should I go about this? O and I have yet to mention that our sexual life with each other is amazing it's like our souls speaks to each other......smh please help me offer me the best advise maybe this can help my sun sign is libra but all my other planets is dominated by scorpio

Rambo: Nothing like Scorpion determination, but remember innocent Virgo could interpret your force of will as too assertive. There is a key word with romance: Be beguiling.

Thanks for your commentary on the writing. Perhaps if you have more specific questions concerning your situation, I can be more enlightening and clear. If you are a Virgo it is entirely predictable that you would open with criticism on the writing. If you are a Scorpio, perhaps you are just bubbling over with anger, and don't want to formally ask a question. In either case, if you have a question beyond my poor writing, I would still be glad to respond to you. I understand how broken romance can work on a person's psyche.

I am a virgo and have been with a scorpio for almost 9 years. My oldest child is also a virgo and my youngest is a scorpio. My best friend of almost 20 years is a scorpio. I seem to have made it work but with effort I must say. This info is insightful and also correct I believe. Thank You.

Hello Christofers, excellent read... I can't remember nor I care to remember my ex-husband's sign April 28th, but as a Virgo I have found my ability to suceed inside relationships has been futile. I think it has much more to do with historical circumstances, but my four sisters prove that some people just are better at relationships than others. All three virgo's have not been very successful... the Libra got that last good man and Aries not so good.
