When Virgo and Aquarius come together, it is very much a case of two people bringing out the best or worst in each other. Virgo has a prosaic, scientific approach to life. The Aquarian approach, on the other hand, defies all logical scientific boundaries. The two some may thrive on their differences, though they grow together as they learn about each other.
Aquarius can be temperamental and opinionated, and Virgo likes to do things methodically with as little fuss as possible. Virgo appreciates organization and is level-headed. Aquarius is modern and finds routine dull and boring. Virgo will find Aquarius exciting, yet may get frustrated trying to penetrate this artist's mind. Aquarius will not appreciate the criticism of their partner but will find the solid base Virgo provides to be a great support.
Virgo is ruled by Mercury, and Aquarius is ruled by Saturn and Uranus. Both Mercury and Uranus are androgynous energies, while Saturn is a cool, traditional energy. Uranus is about all things odd and atypical. Mercury is communicative and focuses on organization and efficiency, all of which are important to Virgo. Saturn is about hard work and discipline to achieve goals, while Uranus centers on forward thinking. Virgo will show Aquarius that life is based on organization, rationality and comfort. Aquarius can teach Virgo to be more aloof, to dig their heels in and stand up for what they believe.
Virgo is an Earth Sign and Aquarius is an Air Sign. Aquarius moves through life seeking pure intellectual stimulation, while Virgo is more practical. Virgos seek the how and why of a situation, while Aquarians simply focus on what tickles their fancy, practical or not, and usually ask 'What next?' At times, each partner may find it difficult to understand the other's perspective. Conflicts can arise in this relationship if Virgo's focus is only on obtaining the perfect relationship or Aquarius seems too capricious and aloof. Both partners need to know that they view the world in different ways, and that they have a lot to learn from one another.
Virgo is a Mutable Sign and Aquarius is a Fixed Sign. Aquarius can be unreasonable, opinionated and inflexible. Both partners tend to persevere when working toward their goals. Virgo is adaptable to any social situation. Virgo is pleased to work on Aquarius' projects as long as they are given a substantial role. Conflicts are few and far between, usually resolved by Virgo's accommodating nature. If the two understand that they're working together for a common goal, it's much easier for them to reach it. Virgo is more realistic than Aquarius and might -- to a degree -- give in to avoid all-out war when it seems practical.
The best aspect of the Virgo-Aquarius relationship is that when they decide to come together, they are a ambitious pair. This relationship tends to be informative, enlightening and a pleasure to both participants.
