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 Aries-and-Virgo interaction is not easy on either individual. As the “I am” sign of the Zodiac, Aries is independent, face-paced, and likes to take risks. Virgo is the “I serve” sign of the Zodiac, and is diligent, methodical, and perfectionist. A long-term relationship (outside parent/child) can happen, but it would take strong factors in other areas of the chart! Virgo is a mutable sign, that can adapt, but Aries is not really one to want to spend a lot of time on the day-to-day or details of long-term relationships.
Aries Parent/Virgo Child
The Aries parent and Virgo child will struggle to maintain interaction. Aries, as a parent, can be very hands-off. Virgo, as a type, wants to know how everything works and likes to be “hands-on”. The Virgo child may end up frustrated because the Aries parent will tend to “leave steps out” in his or her explanations. And the Aries parent can end up frustrated because the Virgo child really is patient and likes to take his or her time doing things, and not rushing.
Virgo Parent/Aries Child
The Virgo parent and Aries child can be a challenging relationship. Virgo is the “measure twice, cut once” personality and Aries is the “cut once”, nope, “cut again” … okay, “let’s measure, and now cut” … “okay mom/dad, I will measure it twice!” So long as the Aries child can help start a project, but leave the finishing work to the parent, and the parent can let the Aries child go after helping get the project started, life will go much easier.
Aries Friend/Virgo Friend
Aries and Virgo friends can be somewhat rare since they manage energy in very, very different ways. However, they can make it work so long as Aries “goes first” and Virgo finishes. Mostly, Aries will feel like Virgo is too much of a stickler for the rules and Virgo will feel like Aries is too reckless. Other factors in the chart will have to present to make these energies build anything lasting.
Aries Lover/Virgo Lover
This romance, love, sex combination can be like a car engine sputtering to start! Aries is a “let’s rip off our clothes and have sex here in the bathroom” and Virgo is “let me fold up my clothes and make sure I am groomed and clean before getting naked”. As you can surmise these energies need some serious help from the rest of the chart for romance, love, and sex.
Aries Employer/Virgo Employee
The Aries employer and the Virgo employee can work because Virgos are pretty much the ideal employees. As the sign that prefers to serve, they will make sure everything is running properly and efficiently, which will be a huge benefit to the Aries employer. Since Aries employers can be “hands-off”, the Virgo can set up the necessary routines and see that they are applied with minimal interference from the Aries.
Virgo Employer/Aries Employee
If the employer is a Virgo and the employee is Aries, this combination is a lot more troublesome. Virgo wants things done a certain way, and correctly. Speed or aggressiveness are not important; attention to detail and correct procedures are important. However, the Virgo employer is also one of the best for finding the right “tool” for the right job. If the Virgo employer has a task perfectly suited for Aries energy, then the employment situation can work in specialized situations.
Aries Co-worker/Virgo Co-worker
This combination is not good. These energies really do not see eye-to-eye; truthfully, they are not even looking at each other. Best for these co-workers to work in separate divisions and on teams that will align better with their divergent energies. After all, one is fire (Aires) and the other is earth (Virgo). One is here to “go for it” and the other is here to “serve.”
