Leo men and Virgo women strike a surprisingly successful balance when their signs meet. The lion who lives for adoration and the analytical virgin exist on such opposite ends of the spectrum it can be hard to imagine a successful relationship. The answer to why they function well together is not explained by the simplistic opposites attract phenomenon. The real reason for compatibility between Leo men and Virgo women is that the glaring weaknesses of both are assuaged by the strengths of the other party. Unlike most leadership driven signs, the male Leo is not a bad boy at heart. He is caring, kind and generous which suits a female Virgo’s appreciation for all things good. The traits of these two signs are so deeply ingrained that neither side should expect to change their partner over time. As such, learning how to function with your ever-wild lion or gracious virgin can go a long way towards keeping the peace.
The raw power of the male Leo is delightfully balanced within himself by his gravitation towards goodness. With a Virgo partner who often assails herself with her own criticism, his overwhelming warmth can do quite a lot of good. Her natural shyness and insecurity are countered by the brave, and boastful lion. While his stronger qualities will not rub off on her, it is easy to find comfort in the man who will shield her from those targeting her weaknesses. In turn, the direct and brutally honest Virgo will do no ego stroking when it is undeserved. His natural pride may be a hard sell until she finds him truly deserving. Leo men are creative and determined when it comes to achieving recognition, so he won’t give up without a fight.
With drastically different personalities and opposing likes and dislikes, this pairing may not be the best option if you expect your partner at your side 24/7. Friends, hobbies and even general interests are unlikely to be the same, so having an independent streak is best. For the sake of peace, expectations will need to be toned down, and a Virgo will have to ask herself if she can love and tolerate a Leo. A male Leo’s carefree and lazy approach to life can be hard to understand for the hardworking and methodical Virgo female and vice versa. Clearly, communicating limits between partners can keep squabbles infrequent.
Love And Relationships
In love is where Leo men truly shine. They tend to charm and seduce with little effort, simply by being themselves. Forever upbeat, a Leo man is passionate and funny and he loves to shower his partner or date in gifts. It is not at all surprising that the worrisome Virgo loves to be lost in his arms. Embraced by her enthusiastic and loving lion, it is easy to forget any troubles she might have had. Virgo finds the sensitive side she needs from her partner and he guards her vulnerabilities she is ashamed of, which endears him to her. While at first she appears aloof, once in a loving relationship, she is selfless with her time and attention.
Of course, relationships are not all good times, and differences in reaction styles cause their fair share of breakups. First and foremost is the Leo man’s possessiveness. Jealousy and possessiveness regarding what he views as his, is common. Luckily, a Virgo will call him on this problem if it becomes too much. When troubles arise, Leo men tackle them like they do life – with a mix of strength, flair, and loudness. The quiet and practical Virgo female simply doesn’t provide the reaction he expects from his fear-inspiring display. She will point out his flaws, use her intelligence as a weapon, and otherwise put him on the defensive. Unfortunately, her critical and analytical honesty can be a death blow as the lion can’t tolerate criticism. The Virgo woman won’t tolerate an egotist, and her eye rolls will slowly graduate to insults and a split if her Leo does not take the subtle hints.
In intimacy, the passion of the Leo is enough to overwhelm anyone, but in a good way. It is a matter of pride for him to perform well in bed, so he is unlikely to leave her unsatisfied. He is adventurous and lusty, placing a high importance on good sex and most certainly doing his part to live up to that expectation. The Virgo is true to her sign, shy but open to the hunger of her lover. The virgin is very sensual in nature, and that meshes well with the outpouring of passion she will receive. Overall it is about self-esteem; she enjoys being desired and will experiment more and more as her confidence increases.
