When it comes to astrological compatibility, signs that are right next to each other in the zodiac like Virgo and Libra are an interesting case. In some views of astrology, each zodiac sign learns about life from the one before it. In this concept, Aries is the zodiac’s baby and Pisces is zodiac’s elder. This means that when two signs are next to each other, it translates to what I’ve heard some astrologers describe as big sibling/little sibling energy—they care about each other, but oh man, do they bicker. Let’s talk a bit more about one of these side-by-side pairs, Virgo and Libra.

Virgo and Libra: Personality Traits

Let’s face it: These two don’t have a ton in common. Libra is more outgoing, while Virgo is more introverted. Virgo is a practical planner, while Libra is more spontaneous. Libra is super-social, while Virgo prefers to keep their circle small. However, if they make an effort to get to know each other, these two might find that they get along well despite all their differences. Virgo can provide a grounding force for flighty air sign Libra, and Libra can encourage earth sign Virgo to loosen up a bit.

Virgo and Libra: Friendship Compatibility

That sibling energy I mentioned? It means that two have the potential to be amazing friends, teaming up for schemes that Virgo plans and Libra leads and laughing about them afterwards. They might bicker sometimes, but if they can each take some time away and cool off, they’ll easily forgive each other and move forward all the stronger for it.

Virgo and Libra: Sexual Compatibility

There’s one major issue that might pop up in the bedroom for these two: They both prefer to let their partner take the lead. Virgo is known as a “sign of service” who gets off on getting their partner off. Libra is also known to be a people-pleaser, and that is very much including in the bedroom. They both feel a little bit out of their element taking the lead, which means they might struggle to connect sexually. But if one of them feels comfortable stepping into that role (maybe they’ve got an Aries Moon sign, for example), their dedication to each other’s pleasure can make for some major fireworks.

Virgo and Libra: Relationship Compatibility

For these two, a romantic relationship will look a lot like the friendship I described earlier (with some extra blow-your-socks-off sex, of course). Virgo and Libra have so many differences, but their differences are complementary and if they team up, they can work well together. They also have a ton of fun together, although they might bicker from time to time. Their romance will likely involve a lot of teasing banter, flirting, and even pranks.

Virgo and Libra: Marriage Compatibility

In a marriage or other long-term, committed romantic relationship, Virgo and Libra make a great team. Their differences mean that they’ve got every base covered—Virgo is the planner, while Libra takes care of the charm and connections. However, their tendency to bicker can lead to tension over time, so it’s important that they learn how to talk things out and diffuse little arguments before resentment builds up.

Virgo and Libra: Compatibility Summary

While these two make a great friendship pair, they might not feel a romantic or sexual connection. However, if they do—particularly if their Moon, Mars, and/or Venus signs have a strong connection with each other—their people-pleasing tendencies make for excellent sex. And whatever form their relationship takes, Virgo and Libra can learn a lot from each other.
