You’ll find the strengths and weaknesses of Aquarius and Virgo as friends and lovers in the article below.

In my role as a life coach, I am often helping clients better understand themselves and those closest to them. 

That’s why I’m excited to share this astrology-based friendship guide with you. 

So, let’s dive in. 

Virgo And Aquarius Friendship Compatibility

Aqaurius is an air sign, while Virgo is an earth sign. These signs are in the same half of the zodiac wheel, but almost polar opposites in astrological placement.

An air sign is more compatible with fire signs (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius). An Earth sign vibes better with water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces).

What’s more, Aquarius is a fixed sign, whereas Virgo is a mutable sign.  

In spite of this, an Aquarius and Virgo can be highly compatible. 

There will be obstacles that can prevent a happy relationship as lovers or good friends, but sometimes these two zodiac signs develop a bond strong enough to jump all hurdles together.  

Virgo And Aquarius Compatibility Percentage

According to, the Virgo and Aquarius compatibility percentage is only 30%.

They rate as: 

  • 50% for trust;
  • 40% for communication;
  • 35% for emotions;
  • 30% for values;
  • 25% for shared activities;
  • 1% for intimacy compatibility.

So, are Virgo and Aquarius compatible based on these scores? The answer is: not so often. 

However, this percentage score fails to mention what a strong relationship these zodiac signs have when things do work out.    

Why Aquarius And Virgo Are A Good Fit

These two signs both tend to have quirky interests. They’re both happy to sway from hobbies that are trendy or popular. What’s more, both Aquarius and Virgo are prone to dive deep into their passions, rather than having a casual interest in things.

When Virgos find an Aquarius who shares the same niche hobby as them, that’s often the foundation for a successful friendship.  

Even if they don’t share the same hobbies, an Aquarius is curious enough to hear about the strange things their Virgo friend is interested in, and vice-versa. 

Both signs engage in hobbies for themselves, rather than to show off to their friends, but a Virgo and Aquarius will recognize and respect that in each other.

Aquarius and Virgo natives both tend to be dedicated and strong-willed characters. A Virgo/Aquarius friendship is often born out of pure fascination for how each other spends their time.

If they do become friends, there’s every chance they’ll be friends for life.

Why Aquarius And Virgo Don’t Get Along

An Aquarius and Virgo friendship will often fail to fully blossom because both natives are so independent and stubborn.

These two friends might drift apart after a disagreement or when one becomes engrossed in a project, with neither person being bold enough to reconcile the relationship.

However, more often, it’s the many differences between this pair that stop any relationship forming in the first place.

A Virgo tends to be rigid in their ideas. They like to over-plan and have somewhat of a perfectionist nature. Meanwhile, an Aquarius prefers to be more spontaneous and care-free.  

It’s possible for an Aquarius to teach Virgo to be more flexible and free-spirited, while a Virgo can teach Aquarius to be less erratic. However, it’s more likely that they drive each other crazy with their different approaches to life.

It’s fun to have an Aquarius friend, but Virgos can find the water bearer zodiac sign overbearing. It’s useful to have a Virgo companion, but Aquarius can quickly tire of them.  

Virgo And Aquarius Relationship

Aquarius and Virgo are very stubborn and fiercely independent. These are the biggest hurdles they need to overcome to enjoy a successful romantic relationship. These two will need to learn to compromise and that’s unlikely to be an easy mission.

The differences in how they plan their lives can also cause frustration. Perhaps Virgos will want to rigidly plan their dates, while their Aquarius partner is desperate for a spontaneous rendezvous.

These two might initially be attracted to each other through pure awe and fascination, but that will fade over time. For their relationship to survive, they’ll need to find a love compatibility that lasts beyond the initial infatuation stage.

With that said, it’s common that these signs find they can talk about everything and anything. Both Virgos and Aquarius natives like to discuss the deeper topics of this world – and these intellectual conversations can be enough for them to develop a deep bond as lovers and friends.

Virgo And Aquarius Marriage

An Aquarius and Virgo couple will either quickly crash and burn after the honeymoon stage, or they’ll go the distance.

Those who do enjoy a lasting relationship find a way to compromise over their different perspectives of life.

Once they find balance, a marriage can be relatively plain-sailing.

This pair both like to have a small circle of friends. They will find it easy to bond over activities and they communicate extremely well. This means any marital disagreements can be solved quickly and without too much stress. 

Virgo and Aquarian soul mates aren’t as common as other pairs in the zodiac wheel, but they are one of the most powerful pairings when they do find each other. It’s finding that initial compatibility in each other’s lives that is the biggest struggle for these two signs.   

The biggest threat to a marriage between Virgos and Aquarians could be getting stuck in too much of a rut. Both of these sun signs like being productive and become frustrated when they’re not too busy. However, since they both agree on this, they will usually help each other out of this rut. You’ll often find that Virgo and Aquarius spouses might have a lot of children for this reason.   

Virgo And Aquarius In Bed

An Aquarius likes to be adventurous and free-spirited in the bedroom, whereas Virgo is more reserved and liable to stick with what they know.

This can cause problems in some relationships. 

However, when the connection is good, an Aquarius lover can be very good at making Virgo feel  comfortable in a more diverse sexual relationship.

Different Dynamics With Man And Women

Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, which is regarded as the most unconventional planet of the entire zodiac. This goes a long way to explaining why natives of Aquarius tend to be quirky and a bit detached from the norms of society.

On the flip side, the ruling planet of Virgo natives is Mercury, the planet of communication. This is why they’re more down to earth and have a difficult time moving away from their routine.

This creates different dynamics depending on the genders in a relationship between these two signs. 

An Aquarius female will be overflowing with feminine energy and that’s why creates such strong sexual attraction between them and a logical masculine Virgo Man. Indeed, any deeply feminine being will have strong compatibility with a Virgo partner and an Aquarius woman is usually that. 

Meanwhile, Virgo women are often attracted to the fun and adventure that Uranus brings to an Aquarius man. At the same time, a Virgo woman can feel the urge to tame her Aquarius man, which doesn’t always work out well. 

You’ll often find a Virgo woman seeking out a younger Aqaurius man. Meanwhile, an older Virgo man is happy to bring a younger or older Aquarius woman into his world.
