Love Between Virgo and Leo: A Powerful Match
Opposites Attract with Leo and Virgo
The old saying "opposites attract" is certainly true when Virgo and Leo sun signs connect! Both signs have strong personalities and enjoy getting their own way, so the biggest goal for a Leo-Virgo match is to ensure that each partner has an equal say in the relationship. If you can manage that, you will be on the right track for a stimulating, loving, strong partnership.
Leos are appropriately named, since they truly are kings of the castle. Leos are known for having big personalities: They like lots of friends, food, and fun! They like it when life bursts with the unexpected, although they also enjoy quiet periods to recharge. If you picture a lion, you will see a powerful, intelligent cat that can run swiftly and conquer all other animals, and then spend long, luxurious hours napping in the sun. Human Leos are much the same, which is why the are sometimes considered somewhat lazy. This is not actually true; rather, Leos have prodigious self-motivation and concentration, but they choose to focus their energy on specific pursuits that are important to them. Housework, for example, is not something that Leos consider important. Leos often do exceptionally well in positions of leadership like professors, politicians, and lawyers.
Virgos also have extraordinary powers of concentration, but they often care equally about the big picture and the details necessary to get there. This makes them powerful allies, since they are wonderful strategists and analysts. If you have a goal, a Virgo can help you achieve it. Virgos are planners by nature, which means that they don't love the unexpected. They feel more secure when they know what is likely to happen. That doesn't mean they prefer to spend each day exactly the same way, but a few general planning points mean a lot to a Virgo. Friends mean a lot to Virgos, though they are not as naturally social as Leos. A few close, lifelong friends are enough for a Virgo. Leos also have close personal friends, but they also attract many other friends, colleagues and acquaintances.
As you can see, a Leo-Virgo match has a lot going for it. As long as the two can support each other equally, the relationship has the potential to go "all the way"!
Leos and Virgos both like to have a comfortable, safe, and well-kept household. That doesn't mean that they always agree on how to get it, though!
Leos are big-picture thinkers most of the time, and dirty dishes and laundry do not always enter their radar. Leos will search out the best homeowners insurance, research to find the best and safest cars, and choose well-made, long lasting furniture over cheap furnishings. They will enhance your home and your finances. If you want a robust social life and strong finances, look no further than a Leo!
Virgos, on the other hand, are more particular about all the small details that make life worth living. A squeeze of lemon in your ice water, a freshly made bed, and socks nicely paired are just a few examples of the small ways a Virgo makes your life better. A Virgo will do anything possible to make her Leo's life more wonderful. If Leo is busy and tired, Virgo will make coffee in a travel mug and charge his phone. If Leo has a cold, Virgo will buy cough drops and tissues, and make a cup of tea. If Leo is bored, Virgo will suggest a fun outing or invite friends over for dinner. Virgo shows love through actions, and Leo loves all the attention and care.
This harmonious situation can be maintained as long as both partners understand the other's nature. Leos enjoy big-picture thinking, so it's best if they take care of bigger-picture things. Virgos like having all of their ducks in a row, so they are happy if they can take the lead on all of the smaller decisions. Leo and Virgo need to work together on the very biggest issues, of course, but otherwise they will do well if left to take care of their own spheres.
Problems only arise when the two natures butt heads. Virgos are very concerned with fairness, so if they feel overworked they will be frustrated with "lazy" Leo. Leos like to be in charge much of the time, so they will feel constrained and resentful if Virgo tries to control everything. It's good for both of them to walk in each other's shoes and learn to be flexible!
Leos are known for their warm personalities and their love of love! Leos enjoy romance, both feeling special themselves and making their partner feel special. Leos are loyal and protective, and their best qualities shine when they are working for their love. Virgos are erroneously known for being rather cool and aloof, but the truth is they are just very discriminating in who they choose to love. Once they choose a partner, they blossom like flowers in the sun. Virgos are also very loyal, and they will do everything in their power to make sure that their partner feels loved and cherished.
A Leo-Virgo match promises a very romantic connection. The only danger for the pair comes if each one becomes to engrossed in his or her own sphere and neglects the other one. Virgos and Leos should find projects and activities to enjoy together to ensure that their connection remains strong. Since both Leo and Virgo are very loyal, they will remain in a committed, loving relationship even when romance is pushed aside. They will always rekindle the spark if starts to sink beneath everyday cares like money, children, and work.
A Leo-Virgo future is very bright. Leos have an internal drive to succeed and care for the ones they love, and Virgos are natural helpers. This combination means that Virgos will help Leos meet their goals, and in turn, Leos will use their success to care for their Virgos. Both partners have a stubborn streak, which makes them determined to succeed in all areas of life, including their relationship.
Since both sun signs are very stubborn and feel that their way is the best way, Leo and Virgo have the potential to clash. Leos also value freedom very highly, and dislike being told what to do. Virgo, on the other hand, feels more secure with known limits and boundaries, and loves telling people what to do. It's definitely possible to balance the two preferences, but it does take a lot of work. If you are not open to communication, then this negotiation will be difficult for you.
One great beauty of this pairing is that Leo and Virgo will help each other learn to be flexible and consider each other over themselves. Once this lesson is learned (and yes, it is a hard lesson that can take many years to learn!), the deep understanding and respect that exists between Leo and Virgo will be a strong foundation for the future. Overall, Leo and Virgo are an unstoppable match!
