The Virgo man and Pisces woman are opposites in many ways but are similarly devoted in relationships.  It'll take a lot of patience to grow their love.  Fortunately, Virgo and Pisces have it in them to keep the faith, especially when there's a commitment to stay together. 

Hopefully Devoted

Right away, our Pisces lady sees a man who pays attention. Her Virgo date lurches to open the door for her and wraps her in a throw when she's cold. He shows exquisite care for her comfort.  He remembers that she takes almond milk in her coffee, and is right on time, showing some timeless respect.

His attentiveness is a big draw, as is his sensitivity to the pacing of the affair. Both Virgo and Pisces are sensitive and require time to digest their experiences. Both subscribe to the maxim that less is more, and that's a wise way to get started in love.

The Key to Love

The Virgo man frets a lot and is super mercurial, ruled by Mercury (and Chiron). The wheels of his mind are always turning and usually focused on day-to-day problems. He can be a stress king, always pent up and irked about something.

The Pisces gal has a more emotionally wavy temperament. She's a woman of many moods, some of which are very mysterious as they take hold, and don't seem associated with what's going on in the here and now. 

She is tuned in to subtleties and often doesn't get bent out of shape to say, lose a key. This kind of thing can send the Virgo man into a frenzy of irritability and finger-pointing. 

Her lackadaisical way and his instinct to run a tight ship seem at odds. And this is the root of patterns of blaming that can develop, where Pisces plays the careless one, and Virgo stars as long-suffering control guy. 

But if they don't fall into this trap, or at least recognize the pattern, they can avoid playing out its oppositional extremes. And if each shows respect for the other, this can be a satisfying arrangement.

The Virgo man's alertness to the deets of life makes the Pisces woman feel secure. She might even relax into herself, and let him take care of business. He can feel needed, which he loves, and she is free to follow her own way, into more expressive, imaginative zones.

Earthly and Heavenly

The Virgo man is up in his head, but as an earth sign, he's able to be coaxed into sensual pleasures.  And he senses in his mermaid the kind of empathy that can be trusted wholeheartedly.  

Over time, he unwinds his tense body, mind, and spirit, and joins her in atmospheres of romantic love.  Yes, he needs conditions to be just right, all parties showered and definitely not during working hours, so don't count on him for afternoon delights.

The Pisces woman might find her Virgo man a bit mechanical, and too concerned with his technique.  What she really wants is to lose herself with him, and setting the atmosphere can help. 

Pisces is a water sign ruled by Neptune, patron of the oceanic depths. She craves soulful intimacy and is frustrated if Virgo man is always high strung.  The senses are a pathway to coming together.  Many shared meals that excite the palate become a ritual of communion. 

Ease into the evening with massage and sensual aromas and textures. The setting for love matters for both, who like the boudoir to feel ultra private, calming and even sacred in some way. When you're going steady, sensual rituals become a bridge from the everyday stress to that place you go to, to renew your love.
