There are numerous types of relationships to explore when considering compatibility between two signs. We grow up in a parent/child dynamic. Outside our family, we form friendships with other children and eventually other adults. We look for and find love. And, we go to work and have careers, interacting with employers and co-workers.
Each sign-to-sign interaction guides our behavior in every relationship. Read through this section to find out how each of the above dynamics works astrologically so you can experience the optimal way to communicate and get along with your sign and all the other signs.
The Virgo-and-Aquarius relationship is manageable, as are all relationships with a Virgo, but it is not a grand one. Virgo is the “I serve” sign of the Zodiac, and is diligent, methodical, and perfectionist. Aquarius is the “I revolutionize” sign of the Zodiac and is social, idealistic, and individualistic. A long-term relationship (outside parent/child) is very likely. Virgo can support Aquarius in expressing his or her unique talent for the community and Aquarius can help the Virgo find where they belong, and where his or her service will be most appreciated.
Virgo Parent/Aquarius Child
The Virgo parent and Aquarius child can work well together. Aquarius, as a type, is usually quirky or unique is some way, focused on what is new and innovative. Virgo, as a type, enjoys helping and problem-solving. The Aquarius child often appears to be from a “different world” regardless of who is the parent (except maybe another Aquarius), but the difference can be something the Virgo parent embraces because they enjoy being innovative as well. For the most part these two energies can work well together even though they are ruled by incongruent energies, earth, and air.
Aquarius Parent/Virgo Child
The Aquarius parent and Virgo child can be equally pleasant, with very little drama and plenty of mutual respect. There will be rules with the Aquarius parent, like with any fixed sign, but they will probably be clear enough that the Virgo child will easily understand them. Virgo is the mutable earth sign, and like all earth signs, prefers patterns and reliable processes. These two energies easily work with one another, so the Aquarian parent can help the Virgo child learn to socialize. And the Virgo child’s desire to learn and serve will connect with the Aquarian desire to make the world a better place.
Virgo Friend/Aquarius Friend
Virgo and Aquarius friends can enjoy a “save the world” excitement, mainly driven by the Aquarius, but often enacted practically by the Virgo. The Aquarius enjoys being part of the group but does not need or want to lead, just participates. Aquarians can promote many causes without seeing them through. Virgo will want practical solutions to happen but cannot always see the bigger picture. In this way, the two friends can really help each other move forward in life.
Virgo Lover/Aquarius Lover
This romance, love, sex combination can be surprisingly kinky if they become lovers. All fixed signs can have lasting relationships, even though Aquarius will be the most unusual of the bunch. The romance may not be the most intense, but it might be the most experimental. Aquarius can be as “deviant” as Scorpio, but with a different motivation, less so because of emotional intensity, and more so because of “scientific” curiosity. It is the scientific experiment of romance and sex that the Virgo can hop on and enjoy from a “let’s test that out” place of experimentation.
Virgo Employer/Aquarius Employee
The Virgo employer and the Aquarius employee match is one of the more challenging combinations, mainly because of the potential clash between following rules (Virgo) and innovating or rule-breaking (Aquarius). Virgo wants to see the company run efficiently and perform optimally. Aquarius loves to innovate and find unique ways to solve problems or do his or her work. The Aquarius can enjoy working for a Virgo boss if the Virgo employer has rules or parts of the process allowing for innovation built into the overall vision of success for the company.
Aquarius Employer/Virgo Employee
If the employer is an Aquarius and the employee is Virgo, this combination works better. Aquarius likes to see a team thrive through the efforts of its individuals. Virgo will enjoy working on the team and applying the Aquarius vision for work output and success. Aquarius leaders understand the need for each sign to do what it does best and behave how it prefers to behave. They should be able to see how the Virgo employee can provide reliable, competent, and consistent results in the work environment, which, if managed properly, can make the company vision readily attainable.
Virgo Co-worker/Aquarius Co-worker
This combination may be problematic for the same reasons as the Virgo employer and Aquarius employee; one sign (Virgo) is committed to following the process and rules and the other sign (Aquarius) wants to innovate and break the rules. A wise manager will not have them work in tandem, but “back-to-back”, with the Aquarius leading and the Virgo following. Aquarius can introduce a brilliant innovation and Virgo can work out the details, then the Aquarius can review the solution and suggest adjustments, which gets sent back to the Virgo.
