Are you wondering which of the other zodiac signs is the worst match for Virgo?
If so, you’ve come to the right place. There are plenty of articles out there about the most compatible signs with Virgo, but which ones are the least compatible – and is there one specific sign that’s even less compatible than any of the others?
As a rule, Virgos have great expectations of love. What this means is that they set the bar high and have nothing but disdain for drama and flakiness in their romantic partners. Whether we’re talking about the Virgo man or the Virgo woman, these sun sign natives crave loving, stable and emotionally secure relationships with partners that they can both rely on and admire.
The Virgo personality in a nutshell
The most direct path to understanding which of the other star signs really don’t gel with the Virgo personality is to understand what Virgo is really like on a core level. Let’s take a look.
Virgo is an Earth sign
Virgo is an earth sign. Earth signs are known for their practical, hands-on and down-to-earth natures. They’re strategic and prefer the feeling of solid ground under their feet over pie-in-the-sky scenarios.

Earth signs tend to be materialistic and value the possibilities and pleasures that the physical realm has to offer. Because of this, they tend to be great lovers of art and nature. They’re also often very health conscious and tend to care a great deal about animals and the planet.
The earth signs can also be incredibly stringent. They hold themselves – and everyone they let into their lives – to high standards. Virgo, in particular, is known to have a critical streak and can be ruthlessly unforgiving of anything they perceive to be sloppy or half-hearted.
Virgo is a mutable sign
All of the zodiac signs are either cardinal, fixed or mutable.
Virgo is the mutable earth sign, which means that it is a little more flexible, open-minded and willing to take risks than the other two earth signs.
Mutable signs are the signs born at the end of each season. This gives them a liminal, adaptable quality, as though they are always anticipating the next wave and are ready to change their patterns or learn new skillsets as needed.
Earth signs are notoriously reluctant to embrace change, but Virgo is frequently an exception to this rule. It surprises many to learn that Virgo is quite open-minded and adventurous.
Virgo is ruled by Mercury
All of the sun signs are ruled by a planet, and for Virgo that planet is Mercury.
It is no coincidence that Mercury is also the name of the ancient Roman messenger god. Mercury was worshipped as the god of inspiration, poetry and word-smithing.
The fact that the Virgo zodiac sign is ruled by Mercury means that Virgo has got a way with words. More often than not, Virgos are excellent communicators who know how to weave a compelling narrative. This serves them well whether they happen to be writers, politicians, sales people or self help gurus.
Despite being somewhat aloof, Virgos love to connect with people, and their primary way of accomplishing this is by using their words.
Virgo is symbolized by a maiden
The Virgo zodiac sign is symbolized by a young maiden, often wearing a crown of flowers. The maiden represents harvest as well as the beauty and bounty of the natural world.
The maiden also represents something pure and full of potential.
What it’s like to date a Virgo
If a Virgo is attracted to you, you probably won’t know right away. Indeed, you might find yourself doubting and second-guessing for the longest time whether your Virgo crush is even vaguely interested in you.
Despite being a denizen of the practical earth element, Virgo is a surprisingly sensitive and emotional sign. As a result, Virgos tend to wear their metaphysical armor around new people. It takes the typical Virgo a while to lower their guard and let anyone get close.
If you’re trying to build a relationship with a Virgo, patience is key. He or she will keep you on the famous Virgo scales of judgement for quite some time before deeming you worthy, and before revealing themselves to you.
Having said that, once a Virgo sun sign lets you in, they’ll never let you doubt their affection.
Virgo somehow manages to be both realistic and idealistic at once. This comes to expression in all areas of Virgo’s life, including his or her love life.
Virgos expect a lot from their romantic partners, and they are also willing to give a lot. Virgos love to see their partners thrive, and because of this, they can be interchangeably nurturing and critical of their paramours.
What the Virgo zodiac sign is looking for in a romantic partner
Virgo’s ideal romantic partner is someone reliable, dedicated, affectionate and ambitious – someone who shares Virgo’s high standards and takes a damned good shot at livings up to Virgo’s exacting standards.
Every Virgo craves a partner that he or she can trust implicitly. For Virgo, trust and reliability are the minimum barrier of entry into a relationship. If absolute trust and authenticity isn’t at the core of a romantic liaison, the Virgo partner will soon be looking for an exit.
Virgo wants his or her partner to be emotionally stable and self-reliant. Virgo prizes affection above most other things in a relationship but cannot abide a clingy or emotionally volatile partner.
This brings us to the next point: Yes, the rumors are true – Virgos are extremely judgmental. If your home is a bit of a dump and your idea of a good time is kicking back with a spliff, you can be sure that your Virgo crush will soon evaporate from your life.
Virgo prefers quality over quantity all day long. This is also true when it comes to love and romance. A Virgo will be less impressed by flowery words than by tangible signs of commitment and sincerity.
Virgo’s least compatible zodiac signs
Are you ready to discover which of the zodiac signs are the worst matches for Virgo? Without further ado, let’s get down to business.
Generally speaking, any of the earth signs can be a great match for Virgo. Earth signs just have a special affinity and automatic understanding when they encounter each other, so it is little wonder they frequently end up picking each other as romantic partners.
Having said that, there is one earth sign that is less compatible with Virgo than the others. We’re talking about Capricorn here. Capricorn, despite having certain values and qualities in common with Virgo, can seem too rigid and too purely materialistic from the point of view of a flexible and open-minded Virgo.
Capricorns tend to be highly focused on fitting in and doing well within existing structures, while Virgos are usually much more interested in improving, tweaking and finding new pathways.
Virgo compatibility is, broadly speaking, lowest with any of the air signs.
The air element is essentially the opposite of earth, which can make it difficult for earth and air natives to form deep and meaningful connections with each other.
Where wits, intelligence and humour are concerned, any of the air signs is a potential match for Virgo. However, Virgo will usually fail when it comes to forging a thriving romantic relationship with an air sign.
Virgo wants real, true, exclusive love. Air signs, on the other hand, tend to want to keep things a little more loose and open to whims and interpretation.
Aquarius, the mutable and most flighty of the air signs, is a decidedly bad match for Virgo. These two may get on fabulously as colleagues or friends, but not as long-term lovers.
When fire and earth mix, the result may be either a total hit or a total miss.
Needless to say, fire and earth are two rather different elements. They’re fascinated by each other, but may not always work out together.
Aries and Virgo compatibility is reasonably high. Aries is the cardinal fire sign, full of enthusiasm, charisma and drive. Virgo can appreciate these qualities, while bringing a strategic mind and some temperance to the table. But while they, on some levels, are wildly different from each other, Virgo and Aries also have some traits in common. They’re both scrupulously honest and direct. When these two signs join forces, they have power couple potential.
Virgo and Sagittarius is usually a decent match with real potential.
Virgo loves the deep emotional commitment that the water signs are all capable of. However, the water element also yields one of the worst matches for Virgo.
We’re talking, of course, about lily-livered Pisces. While Virgo may fall head-over-heels for this delicate and sensitive creature, he or she will soon get annoyed and impatient with Pisces’ lack of grounding in the real world. Pisces, meanwhile, runs the risk of being easily hurt by Virgo’s blunt directness.
Conclusion: This Sun sign is the worst match for Virgo
If you have read this article all of the way through to the end, you’ve probably gathered a rather good idea of which of the other zodiac signs make the absolute worst matches for the Virgo man or the Virgo woman.
Broadly speaking, every Virgo wants and craves a number of very specific qualities and values in a long-term romantic partner. These qualities include commitment, exclusivity, trust, reliability and affection. And these are just the minimum cost of entry into being in a relationship with a Virgo. Virgos also crave partners that are emotionally stable, self-reliant – partners who have got their shit together, so to speak.
Here’s a brief roundup of Virgo’s worst matches: Gemini, Libra, Leo and Pisces.
While Virgo may find qualities worthy of admiration in either of these zodiac natives, each of them also lacks something crucial that Virgo is unwilling to compromise on. For Gemini and Libra its emotional depth and exclusivity, for Leo and Pisces it’s a matter of a lack of maturity and groundedness.

Frequently asked questions
What is Virgo worst match?
In most cases, Virgo’s zodiac compatibility is lowest with any of the air signs. This may be surprising as Virgo is very drawn to the air signs’ intelligence and ability to communicate.
However, when it comes to building romantic relationships, Virgo and the air signs have very different ideas. The air signs, and particularly Aquarius and Gemini, are known for their fluidity and reluctance to commit. They may talk a big game, but Virgo isn’t interested in games. Virgo is on the prowl for a reliable partner with whom he or she can form a deep and lasting emotional bond.
Leo is another poor match for Virgo. Virgo tends to find Leo too loud and brash, and Leo in turn may find Virgo to be overly critical and demanding.
What is Virgos worst enemy?
If there are two sun signs that really aren’t meant to be together as a romantic couple, Virgo and Aquarius are those two signs.
While Virgo and Aquarius natives may get on great as friends or colleagues as both are idealistic and highly intelligent, they simply want and expect very different things from a relationship.
Aquarius typically doesn’t want to be limited to one partner, while Virgo demands exclusivity. Aquarius also prefers constant change, while Virgo wants more of a solid framework. All in all, any potential romance between these two is unlikely to past past the first few serious clashes over how to even structure their relationship.
Who is the soulmate of Virgo?
Virgo’s ideal soulmate is often a fellow earth sign, with either Taurus or a fellow Virgo being the two top contenders.
Virgo and Virgo compatibility is extremely high, as this pair intrinsically understand each other and value the same things. The power of being on the same page about a lot of things before a relationship has even started to develop cannot be underestimated.
Virgo compatibility is also very high with Taurus, the fixed earth sign. These two signs are often very good for each other, as Taurus provides Virgo with both material and emotional security and plenty of affection, while Virgo has the ability to inspire and encourage Taurus to become the best version of him-or herself.
Finally, Virgo and Capricorn are also a potential power couple in the making.
Capricorn is known for being both stubborn and materialistic to a degree that none of the other earth signs can keep up with, but Virgo may appreciate being paired with a hardworking, reliable and competent Capricorn partner.
In some cases, Virgo may also find his or her match in a sensitive and loyal water sign, or in an adventurous and enigmatic fire sign.
What sign should a Virgo marry?
When it comes to making as serious a commitment as marriage, Virgo should definitely choose a zodiac sign with whom he or she has a high degree of compatibility.
Virgo usually takes a while to warm up, let alone commit to a romantic partner, so there is hardly any danger of a shotgun wedding followed by regret. What’s more, Virgo takes the concept of marriage extremely seriously and will only marry a partner who views things the same way.
In the long run, Virgo is often best matched with a fellow earth sign. Either Taurus or another Virgo will often prove a good, solid and exceptionally compatible choice. A Cancer, Scorpio or Sagittarius are also phenomenal options.
If there are any zodiac signs Virgo should avoid as potential spouses, those signs are Aquarius and Gemini.
