Why Aries and Virgo Attract Each Other
Aries + Virgo
Hello and welcome! Today in this hub you will learn a few things. I am someone who believes that any zodiac combination can work and can also fail. We have seen in our world every possible combination succeed into marriage and every single combination end in divorce. This is why I think we have to look deeper at what is at stake. It's important to remember that each combination whether romantic, platonic, or demonic are like a recipe. Some recipes are much more complicated, but that doesn't mean the end result is any less or more. In fact, as a baker, sometimes more steps means a better product, but that doesn't mean it is easy.
What you will learn in this hub:
- Traits common to the Aries and the Virgo as individuals
- How exactly this relationship works. What is the blueprint for an Aries and Virgo match?
- Strengths and weaknesses of both and how their partner can satisfy those needs.
- The real purposes behind astrology.

Spring Leading into Summer
Aries is a fire sign. As the first house of the zodiac, it is the forerunner for the other 12 signs. It is the firstborn child, often doted on by parents, and symbolizes the independence we all have when we separate from the womb. Aries is profoundly influenced by seeing winter, the clean slate of life and the transition into spring. Aries is about making flowers grow. We start to see blossoms and budding in Aries. Now, this sign wants to take charge and make sure those plants can survive and withstand the harsh conditions of spring -- excessive rain, varying temperatures, and a resurgence of life around the world. Aries is when we step out of hibernation and take charge of the world around us. We wear brighter colors, we are more comfortable with ourselves, and we see the appearance of the ram. Aries knows its importance, and has a great ego about it. Without the appearance of Aries, nothing would come to follow it. It decides what things will come into the year, what new life will work, and the plan of attack for all.
Virgo is the 6th house. It's right in the middle of the year. It comes at the end of summer, right as leaves start to fall from trees, as the long summer days start to peel back a touch. Virgo is aware of what needs to be attended to at this point in time. It sees how much Spring has given, and now how to manage all of it. Virgo is aware some of these jewels are about to fade away and decompose, so Virgo feels a lot of pressure to do things right. It feels anxious from the task at hand at perfecting what the earth has given it. This is why Virgo is symbolized as the nervous system or digestive system. It's as though the other signs picked the food to eat and now it's going through the process of deciding which nutrients the body needs while in Virgo. This sign makes for hard, competent workers capable of mastering anything they set their mind to. They carry the weight of the world with them and have standards at 120% if not more. Virgo is considered the most single of the zodiac, partly because it has its mind and processes looking at so many other things that it is hard to stop and smell the roses of romance. Virgo is a lothario at heart. It craves taking care of another, chivalry, and wants a passionate, consistent relationship. Virgo as a partner wants to give intensely and make absolutely sure that their partner is being very pampered and very supported. If you are wanting someone who can really take care of you, a Virgo is dynamite.
Virgo Needs to Defer and Aries Needs to Reciprocate That Back
Aries and Virgo will attract to each other for their very strengths. Aries wants to take charge, go into battle, and make a difference. Virgo is constantly on the lookout for how it can best service you. It'll come to your house and repair your car, change out a broken light bulb, and organize your home into something that makes sense or gives you better access to your resources. Together these two cover all the necessary ground. You have one person who loves to lead and one person who leads by service. Aries has the willpower and Virgo has the resources to complement it. This may end up feeling like a perfect match puzzle wise. However, Aries and Virgo both need to work on strengthening their weaknesses and not completely depending on their partner for that strength. Aries needs to learn humility, how to serve others, and thinking before speaking. Aries is always on the go being completely present minded that they forget to be reflective and see how their choices can leave impact, whether positive or negative. Aries sometimes needs to hold its tongue back from speaking too quick and too sharply at Virgo. Virgo also must remember that Aries is sensitive and not to delve into a long diatribe. Pick your battles, Virgo.
Virgo needs to take charge and lead and not always manage. Virgo can get lost in the finer details, and this can cause them to lose precious time when they need to be more active. Virgo would do well to pull themselves out of reflection and instead take action on life. Try timing yourself with a stopwatch so that you can take consciousness here.
I'm going to repeat some points here, but these points really need to be driven home. These two are sometimes going to have a hard time finding middle ground. Virgo is reflective and highly analytical, and Aries just doesn't have time for that. Aries needs to slow down and be patient with their partner to better understand them. Virgo needs to be honest how they feel and find a partner who won't fight them off for having anxiety and worries in life. If Aries can be a comfort to Virgo's concerns, than this will work in the long haul. Aries sometimes needs to rethink how it speaks. Take your foot off the gas on commands and ask questions instead. At the same time, Virgo needs to think before giving criticism. Aries is sensitive to criticism, so if you plow into all its weaknesses, it might not understand what you are doing and feel worn out. Pick your battles carefully so as to have harmony. Virgo needs to defer to their partner and Aries needs to reciprocate.
The Mind and the Stomach
Let's talk about manifestation. Aries is a leader in making things happen. Virgo is managing what has already been manifested. Aries helps initiate and Virgo takes what's in the middle. So it will help to think about this connection with some of the natural metaphors that these signs entail. Aries thinks about food when its stomach tells the brain it is hungry. Aries will envision food, the smells, the scents, and the salivating. Aries will pass that food down to Virgo for it to process. Virgo will actually engage with the food and decide what to do with it. It's going to prepare that food for the rest of the body, for the digestive system, for expulsion, for the blood system, the nervous system. It has a lot of considerations when taking in food. Sometimes what the mind produces and what the stomach eats are upsetting results in the end. Virgo may get food that was intended to taste good, but in the stomach it tastes bad or harms the body. This is why the conversation between Aries and Virgo is vital -- Aries shouldn't just consider the present moment and how it feels, but how the choices go later down the pipeline and effect the body.
Virgo needs to speak about what is happening to it because Aries does not experience the same thing. The pains you may get from Aries' choices are felt by you. So you need to tell Aries when something works, and you need to tell them when something is remiss. Aries needs to take these thoughts into consideration. Having a good relationship between Aries and Virgo should produce a well balanced body. If Aries isn't communicating well with Virgo, the body gets out of shape. You either get too skinny or you put on too much weight. Aries needs to remember how its choices influence Virgo. Don't keep making the same foul choices that hurt Virgo's feelings. This will make Virgo feel like they are trapped and you are never going to respect or listen to their feelings. Then Aries is going to feel hurt because Virgo is out of whack, and that makes you feel uncomfortable. Digesting is a very important part of the body, and Aries needs to accept this. Think of it like how Aries is the firstborn of the zodiac, and some of the hardest parts about being a baby is passing food and passing gas. One of the first relationships a baby makes is with its own body and understanding it, particularly in the Virgo region. Parents have to teach their child how to soothe themselves and release that tension.
So if you are in an Aries and Virgo relationship one of the first things you need to do is figure out how to resolve tension. This is a primal part of what all humans experience. Be open to releasing your negative energy and opening yourself up to positive energy. Don't put too much pressure on the digestive or nervous system. Take things in stride. Only consume to the degree that you can output. If you put too much pressure on your mind or your digestive system, it can get clogged up, in pain, or just flat out stressed. Be conscious in an Aries and Virgo relationship about how much stress you are putting onto yourself and your partner and what you can do to ease the pains. This will come with Aries thinking more and Virgo talking more about what happens to it. These are really important conversations, because eating food should be an enjoyable experience and being in a relationship should be an enjoyable experience. Aries can learn a lot by thinking about its own digestive system and what that means for itself, because many of the secrets of the Virgo have to do with those processes. And Virgo needs to think about the mind and the processes it goes through.
What is so appealing about a Virgo and Aries relationship?
Pushing for a Healthy Relationship
Respect each others' differences and be willing to compromise. Try to play fair -- don't always let one person get only their way and make the other person submissive. This is a lesson Aries will need to endure in any relationship. Sometimes Aries is trying to make someone a pawn of theirs and not a spouse. Aries needs to remember it takes two people to make a relationship work, and sometimes the focus is on the other person and what they want. If you are having a hard time understanding each other, persevere. It may help to have a mediator who can help guide you through difficult conversations, tell you when to breath, and help you to use emotionally intelligent language. You don't need to be at each others' throats in order to learn about each other and figure out how to make things work. Sometimes you need to go think about things and what you want by yourselves, and then come back together and say what you have learned or that you resolved the issue for yourself and it is okay now.
Virgo is not trying to hold Aries back, it is trying to help Aries be realistic and take care of the things it create rather than just create more things. Aries is not trying to make Virgo feel incapable or slow, Aries appreciates and is fascinated by Virgo's efforts at life. Both have different insecurities they need to work through and be honest with each other.
Encourage passion from each other. Encourage having a healthy dialogue. Your relationship matters and there are concrete ways to handle it. Virgo should be able to remind the pairing there are tangible means of fixing a relationship, and Aries should remind the two they have the willpower to do it.
