Read through this section to find out more on Virgo and Leo compatibility, 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.
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.
The Leo-and-Virgo interaction is one of the more challenging combinations for a personal relationship and one of the best for a business relationship. As the “I perform” sign of the Zodiac, Leo is competitive, playful, and confident. Virgo is the “I serve” sign of the Zodiac, and is diligent, methodical, and perfectionist.
A long-term relationship (outside parent/child) is not likely. These energies sit “side-by-side”, which means they really do see the world from two very different perspectives.
Leo Parent/Virgo Child
The Leo parent and Virgo child can work because the power dynamic aligns best when Leo can lead, and Virgo can follow. The Virgo child will be eager to learn, and they will appreciate the Leo parent, who wants to see their children perform and do well in life. The Leo parent will enjoy the effort the Virgo child makes to learn and be helpful to the family.
The main struggle could come from the natural tendency for Leo to be front and center and Virgo to prefer to be back and off to the side. Still, this combination can make for a very good childhood if the Leo parent is doing well and succeeding in life.
Virgo Parent/Leo Child
The Virgo parent and Leo child is a bit more challenging. The Virgo parent will be ready to teach all his or her children the “right way” to do things and behave. The Leo child will want to be recognized, even favored if there is more than one child in the family.
Leo can spend too much time working on getting recognized than doing things the right way, which can certainly frustrate the Virgo parent. The Virgo parent will not be the most demonstrative or praising parent, unless the child manages the mundane duties of the family appropriately, which can easily bore the Leo child.
Virgo and Leo compatibility as Friends
Leo and Virgo friends make for an “odd couple” friendship, if one develops and persists, which probably will require help from other factors in each person’s chart. It is possible that a sort of leader/follower dynamic could develop where the Leo friend throws out big ideas and exciting plans and the Virgo friend figures out how to make them happen.
Believe it or not, a “personal assistant” friendship can work for both individuals. The Virgo gets to move through the exciting world of the Leo and the Leo has a reliable friend when he or she needs a designated driver, or to get bailed out of jail.
Virgo and Leo compatibility as Lovers
This romance, love, sex combination can be challenging, but strangely successful because of the leader/follower dynamic that the two can naturally fall into, as friends or lovers. Leo loves a big romance and Virgo appreciates “the little things”, so these two can really mismatch when it comes to gift-giving!
However, believe it or not, the Virgo individual can be rather experimental in the bedroom, with the right encouragement and guidance, which Leo will be more than happy to supply. If there is any fantasy role play involved, you can bet the Virgo and the Leo will be dressed appropriately to get into character and have fun!
Leo Employer/Virgo Employee
The Leo employer and the Virgo employee is one of the best since the signs are in power positions that align with their modalities. Leo is a fixed sign, which leads and initiates through performance, creativity, and extroversion. As employers, they want to make sure their employees make the company look good.
Virgo is a mutable sign, that wants to serve and help, so being an employee is very natural to them. They will experience great joy doing their work and receiving nearly loving appreciation from a Leo boss, who values their work ethic and sense of responsibility.
Virgo Employer/Leo Employee
If the employer is a Virgo and the employee is Leo, this combination is more challenging. Essentially, the Virgo boss wants the organization to run efficiently, which means employees being productive and efficient, not flashy, or flamboyant.
A Leo employee will want to have fun at work, get recognized, and outperform all the other employees. They might feel very constrained by a Virgo boss who is not about the show or giving lots of praise. Still, this employer is very good at adjusting and can build into his or her process the means to praise and reward a Leo employee in such a that the employee feels valued.
Leo Co-worker/Virgo Co-worker
This combination can prove to be surprisingly beneficial for a company if the manager helps these two play to their strengths without frustrating one another. In a situation where the work needs to combine public performance with detailed information or a correct way of doing something, then putting these two together would be a stroke of genius.
However, generally speaking, the Leo is going to appear too concerned about getting attention to do the job as efficiently as the Virgo and the Virgo is going to appear too rules-driven to be creative when there is a need to think outside the box.
