When Gemini and Virgo come together in a love affair, it’s crucial to the survival of the relationship that they take time to learn about one another’s approach to life and love — and remember that both partners’ attitudes are worth understanding! Gemini is symbolized by the Twins; they can see both sides of a story, they tend to vacillate between two courses of action and sometimes they can seem as if they have a split personality! This relationship is greatly strengthened when steady Virgo provides one Twin with a steady emotional anchor while allowing the other Twin to flit about at will. Virgo may be a bit too serious and demanding for Gemini, especially if this occurs early in the relationship before Gemini has fully committed. If Virgo just gives it time, things will smooth out.
Virgo and Gemini’s approaches to life are seemingly so different that mutual acceptance can be hard to come by — especially since Virgo tends to be so critical and exacting. Gemini strains against! Virgo’s ultra-practical stance in the world, and Virgo tires quickly of Gemini’s flighty ways. They do have much to teach one another, however. Virgo can help Gemini to be more involved in life and to see the depth of ideas rather than simply the surface. Gemini can help bring fun and excitement into Virgo’s life.
Both Signs are ruled by the Planet Mercury (Communication). Gemini represents the masculine aspect of Mercury, Virgo the feminine (Mercury itself is androgynous). Virgo wants a dependable partner and therefore uses the penchant for clear communication toward forming the perfect relationship. Gemini is more intellectually focused than Virgo but does have a gift in relating to others.
Virgo is an Earth Sign and Gemini is an Air Sign. Virgo is practical, direct and precise. Virgo asks, ‘How will this help me achieve my goals in life?’ while Gemini, who moves through life relying on their mind, doesn’t waste time focusing on where they’re headed, but rather simply goes where their mind leads. Virgo’s fussy, critical nature and Gemini’s aloof detachment and capriciousness can cause trouble for both partners. Virgo must understand that Gemini’s flirtatious nature does not affect their feelings regarding the relationship, and Gemini must help to foster that understanding through words and deeds.
Virgo and Gemini are both Mutable Signs. Both are quite flexible; both are able to adapt to change at a moment’s notice. Both can be somewhat wishy-washy, however, Gemini due to their incessant intellectual ruminations and Virgo due to their penchant for analysis rather than action.
What’s the best aspect of the Gemini-Virgo relationship? The security they can give each other — once Virgo allows Gemini to commit willingly to the relationship. As long as they communicate with each other and use their Mercury powers effectively, theirs will be a gratifying relationship.
