Virgo and Scorpio Friendship Compatibility

Virgo and Scorpio Friendship Compatibility

Friendships between Virgo and Scorpio are often among the best and deepest that either has. Neither of these sun signs trusts easily, but below the surface, earth sign Virgo and water sign Scorpio have a lot in common. Just one sign apart on the zodiac wheel, these two are comfortable together.

While both signs are independent and tend to prefer their own company, Virgo and Scorpio can start to spend a lot of time together. Their similar astrological bents mean that there is rarely an argument between the two.

Here are the Virgo and Scorpio friendship key areas:

Virgo and Scorpio Compatible as Friends?

Virgo and Scorpio are very compatible as friends. They both have a similar outlook on life in terms of being ambitious, believing in the value of hard work, and also believing in the value of planning to get what you want. While neither are innately open individuals, their similarities allow them to trust one another.

The bond that forms between these two is often deep, especially as they are not able to bond with just anyone. As a result, they have a friend for life that they will never turn their back on.

Mutual Interests

Virgo and Scorpio have so much in common, they can surprise even themselves. They are both incredibly driven and ambitious, and know how to put their head down and commit to the hard grind in order to get rewards.

Both Virgo and Scorpio also tend to be incredibly rational, and prefer things that are solid and which they can understand through trial and error. They get in less well with “touchy-feely” things where you need to feel your way. But this doesn’t mean that they aren’t creative, they just reach their creativity through a well-structured plan.

These mutual interests can draw Virgo and Scorpio together and ensure that they have lots to talk about. But they can also conflict.

Scorpio is very controlling and really isn’t happy unless things are done their way. While Virgo would never dream of controlling another person, they always do their own thing and can’t stand to be bossed around. So, they won’t put up with Scorpio trying to tell them what to do.


Neither Virgo nor Scorpio trusts easily. Virgo will hold back their trust until another person earns it, and they expect others to jump through some serious hoops in order to do that. But Virgo also doesn’t expect others to trust them without them proving themselves.

Scorpio trusts more quickly, but their trust is always tinged with a layer of suspicion. They have been hurt in the past, and so they are always on the lookout for signs. They have no intention of being tricked again. As a result, Scorpio can often read too much into situations, and stop trusting another person with very little justification.

But fortunately, both signs are scrupulously honest, and so have what it takes to both earn and keep one another’s trust.

Scorpio’s honesty can sometimes be a little hard-edged, but few people can handle that as well as Virgo, who has a surprisingly thick skin when it comes to criticism. Virgos have a very clear vision of themselves, so they tend to know when criticism is genuine, or says more about the other person than it does about them.

Fun & Excitement

Virgo and Scorpio both believe that life should be enjoyed, but at not the spontaneous types to jump at every opportunity. Both believe that the best way to get the most out of life is to plan things well, and therefore you get what you really want, and not whatever turns up.

So, whether it is deciding who to invite out to drinks, or planning a holiday in order not to waste a moment, Virgo and Scorpio are on the same page. This means that they are perfectly placed to have fun together.

Likelihood to Last

When Virgo and Scorpio connect as friends, it is a friendship that is likely to last. Neither trust easily, and extend the label of “true friend” to just anyone. So, when they do invest in someone, they do not turn their back on them lightly

Scorpio can have a tendency to sabotage friendships with their suspicions, but a friendship with Virgo rarely falls prey to this issue. Virgo is scrupulously honest, has their emotions under control, and are good at reading people. As a result, they rarely start fights, and they know how to defuse situations. This makes them the perfect friend for Scorpio.


Virgo and Scorpio have everything it takes to form a deep and lasting bond. Neither are open about themselves naturally, and prefer to keep their true selves hidden behind armor.

Both signs, but Virgo especially, are excellent actors and good at showing other people what they want them to see.

That means that when either Virgo or Scorpio chooses to share themselves with another person, it is always a choice, never by accident. They have weighed the person in their mind and decided that they are someone not only that they can trust, but can understand them and provide interesting and stimulating insight.

Virgo and Scorpio are very likely to see this quality in one another, and therefore choose to make the other an important person in their lives.

Virgo and Scorpio Potential to be More Than Just Friends

It is not at all uncommon for a good friendship between a Virgo and a Scorpio to deepen into a love connection. While neither sign is reckless when it comes to love, they do believe that true love is something to be treasured. They aren’t likely to let the fear of losing a friend prevent them from taking things further if they see the potential.

However, if things don’t work out, while the two are unlikely to openly fight, they are unlikely to want to spend a lot of time together. Both are realistic in terms of not rubbing salt into wounds and giving one another space to heal.

But, fortunately, relationships between Virgo and Scorpio often work very well. They both have similar outlooks on life in terms of their goals and how they think that they are best achieved, so they often form a dynamic duo.

Combine this with the deep bond and natural loyalty that often emerges between these two, and you have a recipe for happiness.

If bumps do occur along the road they are usually if Scorpio is trying to be too controlling. While Virgo will happily let Scorpio play the leader in a lot of things, there are some things that Virgo considers sacred and will not be budged. If Scorpio pushes too hard, Virgo will push back.
