Virgo - Friendship Compatibility -Virgo and Leo

When Leo and Virgo form a friendship, they may at first think they have no common interests and nothing to learn from one another. This is a friendship that evolves slowly, each learning gradually how to understand and appreciate the other. Leo is outgoing, dominant, and charismatic and often has a short fuse. Virgo is studious and quiet, possessed of more versatility than Leo.

Although these two are completely different, they make a wonderful team once each friend learns to accept the other's unfamiliar style.

Early on, Leo and Virgo may see nothing in each other but their faults. Leo may seem autocratic, and Virgo may seem too critical. Once they stop focusing on each other's faults, though, and begin learning about each other's strengths, they'll discover a great deal. Leo teaches Virgo about fun and excitement, about the spontaneity that is often missing in Virgo's life. Virgo teaches Leo patience and focuses their rationale. Leo may feel Virgo is overcritical, but will teach their friend to take things less seriously. Virgo may accuse Leo of being egocentric and overbearing but can teach them to be attentive to the needs of others.

Leo is ruled by the Sun, and Virgo is ruled by the Planet Mercury. The Sun emanates light and
heat and waits for others to gather around and accept the gifts of their presence. Virgo reaches
out to others and works out all the details before committing to a determined goal. Both Signs
need to take the time to see the value of their friend's approach; Leo can teach Virgo to be less
critical and more spontaneous, while the Lion gains stability from Virgo's even keel.

Leo is a Fire Sign, and Virgo is an Earth Sign. Leo initiates action instantly without questioning
their inner motivation, while Virgo is more practical. Virgo asks, 'what good will this do?' while Leo simply pursues what they want with gusto! Although these friends may find it difficult to
understand each other's mind set, when they cooperate, they make an excellent because of their
different strategies.

Leo is a Fixed Sign, and Virgo is a Mutable Sign. Virgo isn't inflexible and likes to spend time
working hard and doing their part in many different arenas. Leo, on the other hand, is the one
who enjoys leading or managing a project and assigns roles to the other participants. Their lack
of conflict over roles helps Leo and Virgo work on the same undertaking with great success.

The best aspect of the Leo-Virgo friendship is their effectiveness as a team. Metaphorically as
well as literally, Leo gets attention and respect by being out in the field and socializing, following
through on new ideas motivated only by fun and interest. Virgo works hard behind the scenes,
keeping things balanced and following up on details that Leo has lost interest in. Their
personalities, opposite in so many ways, makes theirs a highly complementary friendship.
