Virgo And Libra Friendship Compatibility
Virgo is an Earth sign, while Libra is an air sign. Earth signs and air signs are not known for getting on, but the differences between Libra and Virgo stray way beyond this.
Virgo and Libra are both intellectuals who are attracted to people who can offer deep meaningful conversations, so you’d think these two would create a love match made in heaven.
Indeed, when these two sun signs do get along, they will never tire of talking to each other.
However, as they begin to dig deeper into their relationship, they almost inevitably start to discover other personality traits that turn them off one another.

Are Virgos And Libras Good Friends?
Virgo and Libra might become good friends when first encountering each other. Perhaps they’ll appreciate each other’s intelligence and it’s common that they have similar interests.
Even so, it’s rare that the friendship lasts for a long time.
Eventually, they let each other’s differences get in the way of the relationship.
The key difference is that Virgo doesn’t like to surround themselves with large groups of people, while it’s Libra’s nature to be somewhat of a social butterfly.
That doesn’t always have to matter if two friends can see eye to eye in other ways. The problem is: there are other problems that ruin the Libra/Virgo compatibility, even when they spend time alone together.
Libra loves spending money on the finer things in life, while Virgos usually make their purchases based on utility.
On top of that, Libras tend to be very indecisive and Virgo rarely has the patience to deal with this.
When all this is discovered and considered, these two often decide it’s best to go their separate ways.
Why Do Virgos Like Libras?
The intellectual connection is the main thing that attracts Virgo and Libra. However, a Virgo can often become fascinated with a Libra’s charm and warm social energy too.
During their initial spells of knowing each other, a Virgo may warm to the warmth and compliments shown by a Libra.
In a romantic connection, a Virgo woman will often be impressed by a Libra’s attempts to make her feel like a princess.
The problem is a Virgo can lose patience with a Libra’s indecisive and sometimes chaotic nature.

Why Do Libra Like Virgos?
A Virgo – and a Virgo woman in particular – have a loving, soft and gentle side that a Libra man finds endearing.
The problem is: Virgos aren’t very consistent on an emotional level. They can be uptight, impatient and irritable too – and Libra often sees this as a sign that they aren’t appreciated or wanted.
Why Virgo And Libra Sometimes Can’t Get Along
We’ve explored the key differences that make it difficult for Virgo and Libra to enjoy a healthy relationship.
They have different views on how they like to socialise and spend their money, plus they have personality traits that are likely to clash.
These two might bond over mutual habits and having lots of interesting things to talk about, but the fact is: Virgo and Libra have vastly different communication styles too.
Libras love to be expressive and indirect in their conversations, using metaphors to make their stories more colorful, but a Virgo would prefer them to get straight to the point.
A Libra will often use sarcasm and dark humor, but that’s the wrong way to win over a Virgo. In fact, it’s not what a Virgo likes at all. A Libra can often use a passive-aggressive communication style to show their annoyance and this can push a Virgo even further away from them.
On top of that, Natives of Libra love to be showered with compliments, but a Virgo isn’t the prime candidate to offer that type of flattery.
Despite having good communication skills in general, these two struggle to resolve their differences in a healthy way.

Libra Vs Virgo Fight
It’s rare you’ll witness a loud or aggressive fight in a Virgo and Libra relationship. The fact is: these two both hate conflict and will do anything to resolve it as quickly as possible. Both have good enough communication skills to avoid conflict with a quick resolution, even if it isn’t a lasting one.
However, the problem with sweeping one’s problems under the rug is that they eventually grow and resurface. That happens in a Virgo and Libra relationship somewhat regularly, often destroying it for good.
Virgo And Libra Relationship
Both Virgo and Libra love the idea of finding their soulmate and building a family together.
As a true homebody, a Virgo woman is particularly keen to settle down with a husband and children quickly.
With the Venus-motivated strong desire to impress and spoil his partner, a Libra man might initially appear to be the perfect candidate too.
This desire to love and cherish – stemming from Libra’s ruling planet, Venus – can be enough to make sparks fly at the beginning of a Virgo/Libra relationship.
There would appear to be hope in the early stages of a relationship between a Virgo man and a Libra woman too. In many cases, a Virgo man can ground the Libra woman and provide some much-needed direction to her life. When a Libra woman falls hard for a Virgo man, she might temporarily abandon her outgoing extroverted life to build something with him.
However, as we’ve explored, the Virgo and Libra love match often breaks down once they come to understand each other on a deeper level.
The indecisive nature of a Libra man can often be a deal-breaker for a Virgo woman. Meanwhile, Librans can often conclude that a Virgo is too dull for them.
Even if that doesn’t happen, their different communication styles and life desires ruin whatever deep connection they formed pretty quickly.
Virgo and Libra relationships tend to lack trust. Virgo often becomes uncomfortable with the busy and open social life of their Libra partner, while a Virgo’s quiet nature can often arouse insecurities in Libra.
Intimacy compatibility is an issue too, as we’ll explore shortly.

Libra and Virgo Marriage
What about the Virgo and Libra love match that makes it all the way to marriage? Do people in these relationships get their happily ever after?
Well, that depends on your idea of a happy relationship.
Marriages between Virgo and Libra tend to be functional, rather than emotional. Oftentimes, it’s a convenience match rather than a love match.
Sure, these two spouses will have plenty to talk about. These two signs are both ambitious, so they may both have lofty goals as far as working hard to buy a big home and create a large family. A Virgo man is happy to work hard to make that happen, and we’ve already explored how Librans love to live a life of luxury.
The problem is: a Virgo and Libra don’t always have the strong emotional connection to fall back on during the hard times in their marriage. The mental connection they share might not be enough to keep them together
Libra And Virgo Intimately
The lack of an emotional connection between this Earth sign and Air sign means that their intimate life is unlikely to rock anyone’s world too often.
As a cardinal sign, Libra has no problem initiating intimacy and bringing new ideas to the bedroom.
The problem is: a Virgo is less likely to be a sexually adventurous person. You can expect a Virgo to be especially slow to jump into bed with their partner in the first place (especially a Virgo woman). Then, moving forward, they’ll often prefer to stick to tried-and-tested routines.
This can frustrate a Libra and maybe even hurt their feelings (especially a sensitive Libra man). Remember, their ruling planet is Venus, which connects everything they and their partner do to the idea of love.
Virgo is shy and somewhat stubborn in the bedroom, despite being a mutable sign. The only hope for Libra is to be patient and loving enough to help the Virgo discover their hidden naughty side.
Who Are Virgo And Libra Compatible With?
As an Earth sign, a Virgo can expect to have better compatibility with water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces). It’s common that they end up with other Earth signs too. That means Taurus, Capricorn or another Virgo. See my guide on Best Virgo Soulmates for more information.
Libra is an Air sign and has the best love compatibility with Fire signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius). They bond well with Gemini, Aquarius and other Libras too. To learn more about Libra + intimacy compatibility, see my article on the Best Libra Soulmates.
