Taurus + Virgo

Earth + Earth = Solid Ground

This combination is considered elementally perfect, astrologically speaking. You are an earth sign ruled by Venus, and Virgo is also an earth sign, which means Virgo will complement you perfectly on many levels. There should be a very natural vibe between you.

For a start, the combination of earth and earth makes the practical nature of your relationship incredibly solid. This is no bad thing: it means that Virgo is fully aware of — and supports — your need for financial independence and material security.

On the other hand, you’ll have to put up with Virgo’s finickiness and perfectionism. They’ll want to analyse and dissect every little thing. This sort of constant mental gymnastics will tire you out, even though you essentially agree with what Virgo has to say.

Virgo will want you to talk and talk and talk — and listen and listen and listen! — so you may need to let them know that sometimes you prefer a bit of peace and quiet. A time with no intellectual exercise could seem weird to Virgo, the star sign with the ever-active mind.

Sometimes, Virgo may take a request for time-out as a personal insult, as an indication that you’re not committed to the relationship. This is not true, but to counteract it you may need to find other common interests. Show Virgo that talk doesn’t have to be the only thing you share.

Art, fashion, music and perhaps cooking could be wonderful joint ventures for you. They are all activities that will help highly strung Virgo relax and synchronise their pace with yours. A quieter, more relaxed pace will work wonders for them.

Because Virgo is the romantic sign for Taurus, the two of you will share lots of sexual pleasure — this relationship can work long term. This is an area that can make up for any other weaknesses in your relationship, as it will be satisfying for both of you.

Most Virgos will be attractive to you, and vice versa. Those born between 13 September and 22 September will echo your ideals and desires quite strongly. Your karmic sense is strong with these Virgos — you feel you’ve met or known each other before.

Those born between 24 August and 2 September are more playful, and have a lot to offer by way of sensual and sexual variety. You will enjoy great physical ease with them, and there don’t seem to be too many walls between you. Those born between 3 September and 12 September are the most serious Virgos. They may think you are a bit of a wet blanket. They tend to be highly strung and volatile. If it’s only thrills and spills they’re after, you may have to show them the door pretty early on.
