While Leo and Virgo may seem to be polar opposites, their differences combine in an exceptional way. The bold Lion helps the more reserved Virgin break out of its shell while Virgo is happy to take care of the needy Leo. Once this duo gets to know one another better, they are in a position to appreciate the differences that make them such a strong couple.
While the Lion presents a bold face to the world, a lot of its brashness is the result of a deep-seated need for the approval of others. Leo may seem like the master of all it surveys, but the Lion is often emotionally tossed around at the mercy of public opinion. This odd combination of egotism and insecurity makes Leo a bit hard to pin down. If it is to stay committed to the relationship, the Lion requires a steady supply of appreciation and respect from its romantic partner.
Despite the Lion’s love of society - and the higher the better, Leo is quite comfortable at home, especially with a properly adoring partner. When the Lion is committed, it is a generous lover and can be savagely protective of the relationship. Leo will especially appreciate a partner that doesn’t require it to share the spotlight.
Virgo is hardworking and single-minded, very much in keeping with its Earth Sign character. The Virgin is tireless in the pursuit of its aims and it is very rare that Virgo doesn’t meet its goals. Unlike Capricorn and Taurus, however, the Virgin isn’t particularly materialistic and actually gets more satisfaction from the act of helping than from the rewards, tangible and intangible, of its success. For Virgo, it truly is about the journey.
The Virgin takes everything very seriously and this is especially evident in its romantic relationships. Virgo finds it quite impossible to have a casual lover and is very cautious about the choice of a partner. With its feelings firmly under control, the Virgin will seldom make an unwise decision in love based solely on sentiment. Virgo is logical and has a sharp mind that helps the Virgin keep its head, even when emotions run high.
While a Leo – Virgo union may seem like it would be a difficult one, the two actually work very well together. There’s little doubt that the Lion will initiate the relationship, as the Virgin is too reserved to chase anyone. Leo’s entourage won’t understand what the vivacious Lion sees in the quiet Virgo. The answer is pretty simple, the Virgin doesn’t pay a lot of attention to attention seeking Leo. This intrigues the Lion, and the chase becomes even more interesting to Leo when Virgo doesn’t immediately succumb to the Lion’s glory, but instead rather coolly considers whether the match might work.
Once this pair begins to spend some time together, Leo is delighted to find that its mate is witty and has a dry, sometimes cutting, sense of humor. These two will spend a lot of time just talking and getting to know one another. The Virgin has no interest in having sex with the Lion before a commitment is made, which raises Leo’s respect even more and inspires it to double its efforts to impress Virgo with its suitability as a partner. This is new territory for the Lion who is generally the one pursued.
Leo’s need for appreciation is amply fulfilled by Virgo’s helpful and considerate ways. The Virgin loves to take care of others and the Lion adores being cared for, so this is a perfect match for both. Virgo is very home oriented and will create a lovely domicile for the two to relax and make love. Leo loves beautiful things and will spend many happy hours there being pampered by its mate. For such a perfect mate as the Virgin, the Lion may even stoop to helping with the housework.
Leo and Virgo are well suited to one another when it comes to emotional depth as well. Both the Virgin and the Lion are quite loyal, although Leo is more casual about sex when not in a relationship. Neither Virgo nor Leo will reveal their true selves to a partner until it is very sure that the partner is as fully committed to the relationship as it is. Because the Virgin is so slow in accepting the Lion as a lover, when the relationship finally gets physical, it is already a very strong match.
The Lion and the Virgin are admirably suited to make a harmonious couple, yet there are a few possible emotional pitfalls here. Both Virgo and Leo are quite controlling. The Lion and the Virgin firmly believe that their opinion must be correct, and others simply don’t understand the world as well as they do. This can definitely lead to this pair butting heads over various issues. Leo may try to intimidate the Virgin into seeing things the Lion’s way, but impassive Virgo will have none of that.
Since both Virgo and Leo are somewhat insecure, jealousy is quite possible in this relationship. It doesn’t help matters that the Lion is a terrible flirt. The Virgin is well aware that its partner doesn’t consider sex as a profound act which only exacerbates Virgo’s anxiety. By the Virgin’s more rigid moral code, even flirting smacks of infidelity. Leo won’t understand why this is an issue and may not be considerate enough to tone down its charm outside the relationship.
A Leo – Virgo pairing has much promise and few drawbacks. The Lion is happy to have a partner that is not only uninterested in sharing the spotlight with it, but that also cheerfully provides Leo with the acceptance and respect it needs. Virgo quite likes the Lion’s possessive and protective style of caring for its partner as it makes the Virgin feel important and loved. As long as Leo and Virgo don’t get into a contest of wills and the Lion doesn’t prompt jealousy in the Virgin, this pair has a truly bright future.
