Zodiac Love Matches

Virgo Woman Leo Man

Our Virgo Woman and Leo Man compatibility rating is 8. Although the elements don't match traditionally, there is a special relationship between Virgo and Leo that makes the discord useful. The qualities synch up because of the affinity of your ruling planets.

There is something special between these two signs that allows them to succeed where others fail.

The Elements

Earth vs Fire - Virgo is an Earth Sign and Leo is a Fire Sign; these elements are sometimes said to be discordant, but because of other factors, they work well together. You happen to be the "natural" house of wealth for the sign Leo, and like the Earth stores the warmth of the Sun, you can help him consolidate his fiery, impulsive energy to his own advantage. This is a good business relationship.

The Qualities

Mutable vs Fixed - Being born under a Mutable Sign gives you the flexibility and tactical skill you need to handle the most complex problems. He is born under a Fixed Sign, which gives him a steadiness of purpose and organizing skill.

The Planets

Mercury vs the Sun - Your planet, Mercury, gives you your communication skills, your discriminating intelligence and your youthful appearance. Leo's planet, the Sun, is the source of his generosity, his warmth and his passion. They can work well together.

Love and Romance

Virgo women have a way of affecting Leo Men on a subliminal level. You'll notice that he's started grooming himself a little more neatly, paying closer attention to his checkbook or improving his wardrobe, or even his diet, not long after you get together. Maybe you've been slipping a hint in once and a while, or looking at him in a special way; maybe you haven't been doing anything at all, and it's just that he, somehow, suddenly wants to change. This isn't what you'd get from direct criticism or a confrontation; you're too calculating and have too much common sense to try and tame a Lion by force. Be sure to act cautiously, because too many changes too soon will make him suspicious; he'll tire of the loud shirts eventually. If you apply the technique just right, you'll soon be complimenting him on how great his updated wardrobe looks, and how handsome his hair is, and how he should write a book on self-improvement.

The Keys to Success

Help him with fiscal responsibility.

Leo Men tend to be somewhat extravagant; they're always looking for the biggest, best or most expensive items they can find. Unfortunately, they're not very careful about their bookkeeping; they tend to have faith that the money will come from somewhere. If you've gained his trust, you may want to make a preemptive request to look over his books without verbalizing your criticisms, and watch the praise roll in.

Praise the handy-man in him.

You may be surprised that despite the impulsiveness and pride that seems to rule his character, your Leo Man is likely to be quite handy. Leo men have a knack for fixing things, and don't mind the hardware store. You won't have to pressure him to do so either, because improperly working things and cracks in the wall are as much a blow to his pride as they are an annoyance to your serenity.

Know that he can be very protective.

He is likely to be very protective toward you. He can become possessive and even jealous, but because your honesty and practicality shine through, it's not likely that you'll give him a reason to be. At any rate, he'll probably be attracted to your clear eyes, intelligent smile and precise manner of speech and dress, not knowing that you're a consummate lion tamer.

Final Score: Virgo Woman Leo Man compatibility = 80%.
