Endearing wit, brightly lit Mercury eyes and a natural ease of communication are some of the charms in the cosmic Virgo spell. The expression of love and affection doesn’t come naturally to the Virgo individual. They can be detached enough to become serial heartbreakers. Those born under this sign struggle to understand emotions until they have devised a logical framework to assess them through; although they express their energies through the feminine psyche. Virgos are acute examiners. Their eye for detail colours the undertones of this signs famous orientation toward service and betterment of human beings. Virgo are a deeply romantic sign, and their symbol - the Sheaf Bearer represents purity in its most wholesome form. Like their duality, Pisces, Virgos are a sign with a will to give under a great labor of love. They typically extract great benefit by directing their boundless energy toward lifting others. Love for Virgo is based on the merging of intellect. With Mercury as their ruler, this sign is all about communication as a form of communion. Esoterically, Virgo is represented by the mind, and their first need will be to connect on the intellectual realm; conversation is as intimate as sex for Virgo. As an Earth sign, Virgso have an intense need for physical contact, and this sign tends to values both the mental and the physical equally. They prefer to keep their relationships free from heavy emotional themes and clinginess. The individual will seek to keep partnerships tranquil, mutually beneficial and casual. Any form of drama, pettiness or jealousy will be hard for the Virgo to tolerate; this sign sees relationships as an addition to their lives rather than an entity to fill a missing space.
Virgos are highly devoted to their relationships and family life. They will not marry so much out of impulse and passion, but more as a form of collaboration and ‘team work’. Typically discriminating and selective in their romance, Virgos prefer to sit back and patiently observe their object of desire before making their move. They are deeply sensitive to the needs and anxieties of their partners and will be quite security conscious. They like to be in control, and when love begins to blur their mental clarity they can become unsteady, unstable. When they are unable to analyze their environment it is common for them to feel unsafe and retreat into their own worlds - unable to explain the reasoning behind their aloofness. Emotions and love are intangible, and when Virgo cannot grab ahold of something it acts to throw out all their inner equilibriums; many may feel close affection to somebody yet struggle to express this. The acts of physical service such as planning, running errands or fixing something are the preferred methods of endearment for Virgo.
With the zodiac’s messenger, Mercury as their ruler, many Virgos find expressing their feelings through writing to be effective. Seeing the words on paper tends to reduce the intensity of feeling and confusion, and acts as a visible reflection so they can analyze the internal chaos. Virgos are easily swooned, and can become saturated by lust - yet they will often be too shy to admit it. Every move they make will be deeply evaluated and thought out, and they may spend hours internally deliberating on how to respond to a message. When partners think they are being ignored, Virgo has simply retreated into their own bubble, engaged in the comfort in the home of their thoughts. The blend of the anchoring Earth with the Mercurial wit makes Virgos subtle seducers, and they will take their precious time in finding a partner who matches up to their changeable needs. Within every Virgo is a heart that aches for love, yet they are not willing to compromise their order to fit that person in, that person must magically just ‘fit in’. Love with Virgo will involve the most deep, soul satisfying conversations, a deep sensitivity for your needs, anxieties and fears, and the comforting solidity of Earth’s protective wings.
