The Aries-Virgo love affair is never easy for either sign. Because they are so different, Aries and Virgo may only see each other’s flaws early on in their relationship. But, it’s easy to see why these two signs are drawn to each other. Aries is fiery, passionate, independent, dynamic, and daring, whereas Virgo is graceful, meticulous, detail-oriented, and a perfectionist. The charisma of Aries is what draws Virgo under their spell. However, once the day-to-day details of long-term relationships become a reality, the characteristics that they once found appealing will begin to grate on them.

Aries will become aggressive, impatient, brash, and impetuous in the eyes of Virgo. Virgo will become fussy and slow to Aries. These differences, however, can strengthen the Aries-Virgo love affair if both signs commit to understanding each other and focusing on their respective strengths. Aries can teach Virgo about spontaneity, which is frequently lacking in the life of a Virgo. Aries can learn patience from Virgo, as well as the importance of small details.

Communication & Intellect


Virgo expects things to be done correctly and in a specific manner. The importance of correct procedure and attention to detail outweighs speed for them. As a zodiac sign, Virgo wants to know how everything works and enjoys being “hands-on.” As a result, they may become frustrated because Aries tends to “leave out details” in their explanations.

Aries on the other hand prefers to act first and think later; they just dive in and see what happens. They have so many ideas but can’t seem to commit to just one, so they try to follow up on all of them to see where they lead, resulting in a lot of unfinished business. Aries will be frustrated because Virgo is patient and prefers to take their time processing and completing tasks, which will be interpreted as slowing them down.

An Aries’ opinion will always be voiced, whether it is desired or not, and often without tact, which will irritate the reserved Virgo. They don’t mean to hurt their partner’s feelings because they are one of the most caring signs. But being direct is the Aries way. They only want what is best for the people they care about, even if it means telling them things they don’t want to hear.

On the plus side, Aries has a very physical and goofy sense of humor, which Virgo’s mysterious and stoic nature will appreciate. They are extremely witty and among the most amusing people in the Zodiac. If Aries “goes first” and Virgo “finishes,” these two have a great chance. Mostly, Aries will think Virgo is too strict with the rules, and Virgo will think Aries is too reckless.

Emotions & Sex


While both Aries and Cancer are emotional signs that allow themselves to feel things intensely, they handle them differently. While Aries is upfront and expressive from the beginning, it can take Cancer a very long time to feel comfortable with doing the same.

Cancer’s hesitation to express themselves carries over into their sex lives as well. Aries will have to invest a lot of time, and be very patient with Cancer before they’re ready to get more intimately involved— something that they’ll likely have difficulty with.

Aries’ attitude screams self-assurance, and a lot of times, Cancer feels the exact opposite. Cancer struggles with a fear of rejection, as well as feeling insecure, and they constantly need their partner to validate them. While Aries won’t mind doing this in the beginning, they will expect their partner to eventually overcome these feelings, which may be very challenging for Cancer.

When Cancer likes someone they are very warm and compassionate— something that Aries will appreciate. So while the two are likely to connect on an emotional level, sex and intimacy are likely to be a challenge for these two.



The Aries-Virgo love match has the most compatibility in terms of values. Aries is gentle, straightforward, and honorable, which appeals to Virgo, who values honesty and loyalty and despises being lied to. When Aries and Virgo fall in love, Virgo can provide the stability that Aries craves in any relationship. Aries will also benefit from Virgos’ wisdom and strength. Virgo, on the other hand, will benefit from Aries’ affectionate and exciting personality, which challenges them to step outside of their rule-abiding and stoic comfort zone. There can be a genuine development of a very close friendship bond between Virgo and Aries partners, which can develop into the ideal zodiac love match.

The Aries-Virgo couple is also ambitious and hardworking, and they are great at quickly comprehending information, which can work well for them in a relationship depending on how these values are expressed by each sign, but this is something they will both admire about each other in general.

These two have some values that on paper don’t match, such as Aries’ love of bravery, which Virgo regards as stupid unless it has historical significance or is part of a tradition. Or the importance Virgo places on intelligence, which Aries believes has no bearing on success and may be a recipe for sorrow and loneliness. But these two would see them as opportunities to tease each other and have a good laugh, rather than as threats to their relationship.



Aries enjoys spending time outside and are daring, so they enjoy activities such as rock climbing, hiking, and swimming. When Aries stays in for the night, they are at a loss for what to do. They are so accustomed to comparing themselves to others and competing in everything they do. As a result, when they see that other people have decided to go out for the night, they suffer from FOMO. Aries will most likely spend the majority of the night regretting their decision to stay at home and wondering if it is too late to go out.

Virgos are methodical and like to organize their lives so that everything runs as smoothly as possible. As a result, they frequently spend their free time cleaning and organizing the mess their Aries partner creates (which is also a source of contention between the two signs). Virgo simply cannot relax, and a night in will not be wasted. They’ll use the extra time to clean. By the time morning arrives, no corner will be left untouched, and nothing will be out of place.

At other times Virgos can be found reading or indulging in their love of beautiful things. It’s a good thing Virgo is a mutable sign that is always concerned about their health, or they would never consider following Aries to any of their outdoor activities. It’s also a good thing Aries doesn’t care for activities like watching television, because Virgo would rather read or clean. Generally, the Aries-Virgo couple will be able to enjoy activities together as long as they stick to activities that do not frighten careful Virgo and are not boring to Aries.
