Are Aries and Virgo Compatible as Friends?

Friendships between Aries and Virgo work well, but may seem like a case of opposites attract. But, while they often display very different personalities, they have a lot in common in terms of their beliefs and ambitions. As a result, these two zodiac signs are likely to become fast friends.

Their friendships can take a while to blossom, as neither has a horoscope that disposes them to be open with their thoughts and feelings. But they will get there eventually and develop a bond that is built to last.

Mutual Interests

Aries and Virgo friends will tend to have similar, but not necessarily overlapping interests. For example, they might both pride themselves in their physical fitness, but while Aries may prefer something more mainstream such as weightlifting, Virgo will have a more niche interest such as martial arts.

Similarly, they are both likely to have strong professional ambitions. But while Aries has their eye on a high paying leadership role, Virgo probably has their eye on a well-respected creative role. They enjoy controlling their own work, but don’t have Aries’ drive to control others.

These complimentary but distinct kinds of interests mean that they always have a lot to talk about, and have ideas that will be new and interesting for the other person. But they rarely feel like they are in direct competition.

They are both supremely confident in their own abilities and feel like the master of their own realm. They can appreciate someone in a similar position, but who isn’t encroaching on their boundaries.


Neither Aries nor Virgo are in your face friends. They don’t call daily, and they don’t always remember your birthday. They aren’t popping around with chicken soup if they hear that you aren’t feeling well.

Both zodiac signs tend to prefer a more hands-off friendship. They are busy with their full and rich lives, and they don’t have the need to confide everything in another person.

But both Aries and Virgo are the type of loyal that might not be there every day, but would never turn their back on a friend in need.

They probably won’t spare the time to help you pick out the perfect gift for your partner, but if you need someone to look after your kids for a week due to an emergency, they’ll do it no questions asked.

They probably won’t show much sympathy about your story about your annoying neighbor, but if you hit rock bottom and everyone is turning their back on you, they will still be there, believing in you.

Fun & Excitement

While Aries is overtly adventurous, this same adventurous spirit isn’t as obvious with Virgo, but it is there.

Virgo simply plays their cards close to their chest, and they have very high standards and expectations, so they are very hard to impress. With is why you rarely see Virgo jumping up and down with excitement.

But Virgo is as brave as Aries, and has the same desire to challenge themselves. They find a certain pleasure in jumping in the deep end and trying to find their feet. For this reason, they love to join Aries on an adventure.

Aries will certainly be the leader of the action, but when you are knee-deep in the excitement, Virgo is pulling their weight.

Likelihood to Last

Friendships between Aries and Virgo tend to be harmonious and based on shared interest and shared support, which means that they tend to last the test of time. Both also have their own brand of loyalty which means that they are unlikely to abandon a friend.

They are both the type of people that might not see each other for years, but when they sit down to catch up it is like no time has passed at all.

Both also have very thick skin, so they can put up with the other. This can especially important for Virgo, as Aries can tend to act without necessarily considering how their actions will make the people around them feel.


Aries and Virgo friends can take a long time to develop a bond, but once it is in place, it can be very deep.

Aries is very self-involved, and while they like to talk about themselves, they aren’t good listeners. This means that their bonds can tend to be one-sided. But Virgo is guarded with their thoughts and feelings, so they prefer to listen than to share. So, this arrangement works well for both at the start of their relationship.

But as both zodiac signs begin to recognize who complementary they are, Aries will start to be more intrigued and Virgo will start to open up, resulting in an exchange and a bond that can be profound for both.

Can Aries and Virgo be More Than Just Friends?

These two zodiac signs make excellent partners because they tend to share desires and ambitions that are complementary, but different enough that they fuel one another, but rarely overlap and take anything away from the other.

Aries’ charisma and forcefulness can break through Virgo’s natural defenses. Virgo tends to be able to show Aries the value of being a little more thoughtful and teach Aries that it is not always a good idea to just forcefully plow ahead.

The two are likely to be a very successful and very happy couple. Aries brings a burning passion to the relationship that Virgo can sometimes be afraid to show. And Virgo gives off a calm energy that has the power to focus Aries’ fire rather than diminish it.

While these two can both be controlling, they will find that they are able to set boundaries of who is in control where. Virgo’s tranquil energy can even keep Aries’ argumentative tendencies at bay.
