Virgo and Scorpio Match

We often hear that Virgo and Scorpio and compatible, but few reasons are given why. Is there any truth behind the rumors? Moreover, can an earth sign really vibe with a water sign?

The answers to these questions and many more are revealed on this page.

Before diving deep, you have a right to know who is authoring this piece. It’s simple really. I am a Virgo man with my sun in Virgo and moon in Scorpio.

I also happen to be a shaman from California and member of the Choctaw Indian Nation.

As a healer who believes that all of us have spiritual energy, I’ve spent much of my life studying astrology. The focus of my work centers on zodiac matches with a specific emphasis on Virgos.

For reasons that I don’t fully understand, I’ve been drawn to the psycho-spiritual since I was a child. It’s important you know that I don’t hold myself out as an astrologer or a psychic.

What I can tell you is that I’ve learned to lean into my analytical skills; something all Virgos are blessed with from the time of birth.

In many ways, this gift is a blessing and a curse. If you identify with my sign, you know exactly what I mean.

Using wisdom passed on from the ancients, I write about Zodiac signs like Scorpio and Virgo to help readers like you better understand compatibility.

Virgo and Scorpio revealed

I’ve learned that not all signs match well with Virgo; the only zodiac that is known to channel female energy, regardless of biological gender.

Conversely, I’ve also learned that Scorpio is a challenging sign that takes a special person to understand. I don’t mean this as a knock. I’m just telling you like it is.

Both signs share similarities. Paradoxically, what one is missing the other compensates for. Additionally, both Zodiacs are highly analytical with a penchant for detail.

If you are a Scorpio man looking for insight into Virgo, this post is for you. On the flipside, if you are a Virgo woman searching for compatibility answers, you’ll find the material shared here useful as well.

Before we dive deep, everything appearing below has been generalized to both signs, regardless of gender. That’s because the pairing shares universal traits that have nothing to do with anatomy.

My promise is to give you the real deal about Virgo-Scorpio relationships in a way that is free of ridiculous astro-babble. After all, you’ve come here to learn about zodiac compatibility so why things complicated?

Woven into the match areas, I’ve included special insight on how to work through problem areas. You’ll also find a video on both signs; something I hope serves as a pathway to deeper understanding.

Let’s start out by assessing the unique traits of both signs in the chart below.

In the traditions of horoscopic astrology, Virgos are both under the “Sixth House”. This is a fancy term used to describe a metaphysical structure that contains personality traits which are infused into an individual’s core.

Virgo is ruled exclusively by the planet Mercury, located 48 million miles from where you are standing right now. According to ancient lore, it is from this planet where the sign’s primary traits emanate.

Those born under this sign are gifted with deep analytical and observational skills. Virgos also care a great deal about their personal health and the well-being of others.

Scorpios are born under the “Eighth House” in the traditions of horoscopic astrology. If you were to open the door to this home, you would sense the presence of mystery, logic, mystery, and intimacy.

The sign is ruled by two planets: Mars and Pluto. Knowing this is critical because one is hot (Mars) and the other extremely cold (Pluto).

Earth and Water Signs

Virgo is an earth sign. In the astrological sense, this means they are grounded people with a penchant for the practical. People born under the influence of Mercury are stable and take a well-balanced approach to life.

Scorpio is a water sign. Persons born under this elemental group are deep like the oceans. All water signs are intuitive and often empathic, which is a fancy way of saying psychic.

Fixed and Mutable Signs

Mythology teaches us that Virgo is a mutable sign. In other words, they are able to adapt to various situations and go with the flow. Think laid back and adjustable when you hear Virgo.

Ancient mysticism also tells us that Scorpio is a fixed sign. This means they are stable and focused but not the greatest with change. In fact, adaptation can sometimes be difficult for this zodiac. Think about a fondness for routines and a desire for familiarity when you hear Scorpio.

Why Do Virgo and Scorpio Match?

Now that you have a basic overview of both signs, it’s time to explore the 7 unique ways they match.

Intimacy is powerful

1. Sexual Chemistry

The sexual vibe between Scorpio and Virgo is powerful. At first glance, this may seem impossible but upon closer inspection, we find the opposite is true.

Because Virgo’s libido is difficult to detect, it can be hard for other signs to “tune” into its desires. But that doesn’t mean “The Maiden” [Virgo’s symbol] doesn’t want a physical connection.

Scorpio, using its deep empathic skills, can dial into Virgo’s desires and intuit the maiden’s needs. Did you know Scorpios are part of the arachnid family (University of Nebraska, 2018)? They are, just like spiders.

In other words, Scorpios use their “spidey senses” to intuit what others are thinking.

In the privacy of the bedroom, the physical connection is explosive. Typically, Scorpio will assume the dominant role. Virgo, while sexually versatile, often will move into the submissive.

The karmic connection between the pairing comes from their differences. Virgo is reserved while Scorpio, mysterious. Each balance out what the other lacks.

One important note: The sexual energy that Scorpio vibes out can be overwhelming. Legend holds that when Virgo wears a ring containing sapphire (natural birthstone), it can match and exceed Scorpion sexual energy.

“The physical connection is explosive”

2. Love

The emotional connection between Scorpio and Virgo is strong. It’s also a bond that takes time to develop. But doesn’t this make sense when you consider each sign’s attributes?

Practical Virgo approaches relationships from the intellectual level. It is cautious and therefore must work past its rational side to feel love.

It takes a mysterious, puzzling sign like Scorpio for the maiden to be pulled in. Conversely, Virgo represents a challenge to Scorpio because it wants to zone in on the maiden’s feelings; something Virgos are very good at guarding.

Once the pairing moves past the initial stages of courtship and develops a sense of trust, the emotional bond becomes rock solid. As more time passes, both tune into one another and begin to vibrate on the same love frequency.

Scorpio is drawn to emotional puzzles. Virgo is attracted to the strong, silent type.

As the duo settles into their relational orbit, their bond grows. Each continues to compensate for what the other may lack.

Virgo soothes Scorpio’s passions. On the flipside, Scorpio ignites Virgo’s love flame. The critical thing Scorpio needs to keep in mind is that it takes time for love to blossom. Virgo must be open to sharing deep feelings.

3. Trust

Trust does not come easy between Virgo and Scorpio in the beginning. Much of this is linked to each sign’s core traits. Both signs are cautious in nature with Virgo being more open to new experiences.

Once both recognize they share an emotional and intellectual connection, the sense of safety between the pairing increases. Over time, this equates to a high degree of trust.

Scorpio, who likes to control almost everything, eventually trusts Virgo to make important decisions. This is no easy feat for this sign.

Conversely, Virgo trusts Scorpio to attend to its emotional needs; something that doesn’t come naturally for the maiden.

The key thing Virgo needs to keep in mind is that trust takes time to develop. For Scorpio, it must learn to keep its jealousy in check.

“Both signs are cautious in nature”

4. Finances

In the area of money, there are very few problems that exist between the Scorpio and Virgo pairing. In fact, this may be one of the strongest match areas among the seven.

Virgo is practical in nature and not one to waste money on foolish endeavors. While it doesn’t mind dolling out a few dollars on self-care needs and travel, it doesn’t mean the maiden goes overboard.

Scorpio, by nature, is a miser. Because the sign tends to obsess about everything, including finances, it isn’t one to spend impulsively.

This doesn’t mean the arachnid won’t whip out a charge card to buy an expensive gift – it most certainly will. But once the romantic honeymoon period is over, the sign becomes more conservative.

Special note: If there is one area of disagreement on money, it’s how best to save for goals like children and retirement. Not such a terrible thing to have differences about, is it?

5. Intellect

The intellectual connection between this pairing is very strong. Both signs are highly intelligent with Virgo being super analytical and Scorpio highly logical.

Both are attracted to mysteries, puzzles, and a deeper understanding of how things work in the universe.

Stimulating one another on multiple levels, Virgo often focuses on resolving issues in the here and now. Scorpio, however, has a way of seeing problems down the road.

In this way, Virgo has a calming effect on the arachnid. Because Scorpio tends to obsess, it takes a grounded sign like Virgo to center the arachnid’s energy.

Virgo does well with math and numbers. Scorpio in written and verbal communications. Here again, what one may be missing, the other compensates for.

6. Communication

When it comes to communication, there can be challenges with the Virgo and Scorpio pairing. By nature, Virgo likes to talk. Scorpio, however, does not – at least not a lot.

Both zodiacs need to exercise patience in this area and not make assumptions. For better or for worse, Virgo can often be pessimistic. In turn, this can cause negative, critical comments to escape the maiden’s mouth. If not careful, this can cause arguments.

You may be wondering why? It’s simple. Scorpio is terribly sensitive. It doesn’t take much to piss the arachnid off. The problem for Virgo is that it doesn’t always know this.

Over the course of the relationship, things will improve. But during the initial mating period, it is best for both signs to develop a healthy sense of awareness around their own weaknesses.

Once the romance takes hold, communication vastly improves. In fact, for many in this pairing, there comes a time when speaking isn’t necessary because both can intuit what the other is thinking – and feeling.

7. Interests

Virgos and Scorpios will find they have many interests. Examples include a love for travel with the maiden preferring mountains and the scorpion, the sea. Each enjoys the outdoors.

Both are into current events, gossip, pop culture, psychology, and science. Virgo gravitates towards the arts, gardening, and making things. Scorpio leans towards the occult and philosophy.

In many ways, the pairing jointly enjoys self-improvement activities, such as physical activity and exercise.

By nature, Virgos are more extroverted. Scorpios tend to be introverted. What’s great – here again – is how one sign has a way of compensating for the other.

Politically, both signs tend to be progressive with Virgo being slightly more conservative. Virgos, by nature, are more free- spirited. Scorpios, due to their fixed nature, often need a gentle nudge to try new things.

Finally, both care about the welfare of others with Virgo holding a special place for children and the disadvantaged.

Wrap Up

Hopefully, I’ve been able to demonstrate the unique ways that Virgo and Scorpio are compatible in love, sex, and life.

Perhaps the tangible benefit between these two signs is how they balance once another.

There’s no doubt about it – things can be a struggle at the beginning of the relationship. But once Virgo and Scorpio clear the initial hurdles, they bond together well.

This is a wonderful pairing for families, offering children a stable home.
