Leo + Virgo
Fire + Earth = Lava

When you finally do get together with a Virgo partner, you will learn early on that they are timid and humble, and easily steamrolled by your forcefulness. In a partnership like this you must be careful to use your power and control ethically.

Virgo does have power, but it is a different sort of power. It’s less up front and obvious — they tend to work away quietly, but very carefully and precisely, behind the scenes. Unlike you, they are not interested in how other people see them; what matters to them is how well they carry out their work.

You aren’t concerned with detail the way they are. You want to be No. 1, the best in everything you do. This doesn’t mean you’re sloppy, but you do want the accolades, and you prefer to direct the game from the stage rather than remain invisible like Virgo.

This could be a problem for Virgo, because you could slide into taking their selfless and service-oriented style for granted. You could find that they get tired of your lack of appreciation. Likewise, Virgo’s tendency to look at things in microscopic detail could drive you up the wall.

There are some redeeming features to this relationship, though. Virgo loves your warm and passionate ways in the bedroom. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for your experience of Virgo. They seem far too prim and proper for you. You like a roaring good time between the sheets, not the more modest display of Virgo.

Everything has to be 100 per cent right before Virgo will even consider sharing their most intimate passions with you. That too could get up your nose.

You’ll find that Virgos born between 24 August and 2 September will tend to be less highly strung; this means they will be better friends than some of the other Virgos. You can share some fine times with them, and if you gently bring them out of their shells you will start to see a side of them you find quite endearing.

Virgos born between 3 September and 12 September have a touch of sobriety, because of their connection with the planet Saturn. Saturn is not particularly friendly to your ruler, the Sun, so you can expect a mixed bag in the relationships arena with them. You need fun, warmth, openness and spontaneity, and these people tend to be the opposite: very cautious and not very spontaneous.

There’s no doubt that you will be drawn to Virgos born between 13 September and 22 September. Once you get to know them, though, you could find that their dominating personality clashes with your own. Unless you’re prepared to bow to some of their bossy ways, this relationship will not go too well.
