Virgo relationships

Virgo is ruled by the planet associated with communication; Mercury. Thus Virgos are usually skilled at communication and they want to talk about things. They want to get things right, so they take pains not to say one thing when they mean another. However, some Virgos can be critical and nagging, and sometimes would do well to remember that the important thing is ‘no blame’ communication; being able to say how it is for oneself without pointing the finger at the other person. Virgos tend to be as conscientious about their relationships as they are about everything else so they don’t jump ship overly easily. Virgos are not keen on many people, so they are likely to stick with you. The fact that they chose you is a big compliment.

Virgo romance

In their own low‐key kind of way Virgos can be surprisingly romantic and good at meeting their partner’s needs. They attend to all the details, ensuring that when they plan a surprise, nothing goes wrong. Unconcerned with power and getting ahead, they are kind, gentle and well meaning. They may not be able to raise sufficient ‘oomph’ to encourage their partner to do the great things and to take the risks that they need to. In other words, Virgos can get bogged down by thinking small, by getting caught up in the details or losing sight of the larger picture. They should avoid being a fusspot or too critical of themselves and of their partner. Remember that neither of you needs to be perfect, merely human.
