Though they don’t make a big fuss about their relationship, the deep bond between them is usually evident to anyone who knows them well.
As an earth sign, Venus in Virgo shines when she expresses her love in physical form. Backrubs, food, cleaning—when this Venus aims to please, she rarely misses the mark. She wants to “do” love just right, so it can be hard for her to admit it when things don’t go the way she imagined. In a partner, Venus in Virgo looks for someone who is practical and grounded, since she’d rather be wooed with solid, dependable actions than romantic promises.

He’ll never show his relationship cards first; instead, he’ll wait patiently until the time is right to declare his affection. His sheer sexiness wins him plenty of lovers, but Mars in Scorpio prefers to have just one very loyal partner. This watery Mars can be overly guarded in love, fearing vulnerability and rejection. But when he bares his soul, he expresses a unique depth of feeling that is impossible to resist.

Mars in Scorpio is drawn to Venus in Virgo’s subtle but powerful sexiness. Like a moth to a flame, he just can’t seem to stay away.
