Shy and mutable Virgo will be riveted by the Taurus man’s expressive physical gestures, and Taurus can overcome his jealousy with a Virgo woman who will be kindly sensitive to his insecurities.

Find out how compatible Taurus man Virgo woman really are, and discover how your planets work together. By having a deeper understanding of your Taurus man you can be seen as his “perfect match”!

Are you a Virgo woman who’s got a Taurus man taking her for granted?

Do you find yourself frustrated at the gate- the relationship seems to not go anywhere?

Believe it or not, the Taurus man Virgo woman combination can be a very good one. Two Earth signs, so quite stable and you probably have a lot in common. However, there are a few key pitfalls to this one: and you’ll probably already know them before I write them out!

Both of you can be very reluctant to take the first move- which makes things really difficult early on in the dating process.

Once the two of you get it together, though, that’s where the magic happens – but, how do you get it to that point? How do you get to the point where you’re enjoying all those romantic Taurus stereotypes you keep reading about?

At this point, you may wonder if that’s even possible!

How it can be possible for a Taurus man and a Virgo woman


When the two of you are on the same page, you have a wonderful, warm, and loyal relationship.

You might not know this, but your Taurus likely finds the way that you are able to be practical and apply intelligence to most situations to be quite appealing.

It’s true- you are both very dependable and that can go a very long way: but not if it seems to stall out, before it gets there, which can happen all too often.

You are picky. And him? Not so much!

First, let me say that there is absolutely nothing wrong with having high standards! As a matter of fact, this is something I encourage in all of my clients – always. Set your sights high so that you can have the love you deserve: and a Virgo woman is certainly a great example of this.

However, what you need to know is this: your Taurus man may not be as cocky about it as other men, but he’s still got quite a lot of stubborn pride and what seems like input from you in terms of how he can improve may come across to him as nagging or being critical.

While I know that you are just as critical of yourself as you are anyone else- possibly more critical of yourself – he may not know that.

Even if he’s chided you for being overly hard on yourself: he may not make the connection there in terms of figuring out that you don’t think ill of him. This can become a big problem.

No matter how kind you are in your suggestions, you may, however, find that you have a hard time getting him to budge: this is because that quiet strength you so admire is also a big-time stubborn streak!

A Taurus Man is a Fixed Earth Sign- whereas you, a Virgo Woman are a Mutable Earth Sign

I go into what I mean by “Earth” and “Fixed” signs a bit more in my book Taurus Man Secrets, but, for a basic rundown: you’ll be the one initiating all the compromises and that is actually a very intelligent way to play this.

You have a way about you that makes this possible, but you have to understand how to approach the stubbornness in style- in a way that makes things work out for you rather than against you.

You do not have the same issues with pride that he does- so, this puts you in a better position to do this.

You are a lot more flexible than he will ever be: and that may be something you want to consider going forward – but it’s something that puts you at a distinct advantage here.

The best way you can prevent resentment from rising up and poisoning your relationship with him is to make sure that you are clear about your expectations from the start.

Believe it or not, this will enable you to make him feel more comfortable with you- one thing a Taurus loves more than anything is to know what to expect.

So, if you let him know, unequivocally what he can expect and what you expect from the start? You’re a step ahead of the game.

You will also find that, if you give a little on the whole “perfectionistic Virgo woman” thing, he will give a bit on the stubbornness, too. It won’t happen overnight, but it will happen – your Taurus man tends to do much better when lead by example.

Friendship First: The VERY best setup for a Taurus man and a Virgo woman

These tips are vital, whether you’re just friends right now or you’ve been involved a while. One of the best things that you as a Virgo woman can do to get closer to your Taurus man: be his friend.

Over time, you can become his best friend- and that will seal the deal for you. Love can be a tricky thing to navigate- but it’s a lot easier if you’ve established that friendship first- or, at all.

Here are some steps you can take to get your Taurus man to the next level:

1. You’re going to have to be the one to act on it

I mentioned this before, but Taurus men are notoriously slow to act- if they act at all. This resistance to change may even cross over into the women they’re attracted to. Too afraid of change translates to a lot of waiting unless you make your move.

2. Show him how you feel

There are a bunch of little things that you can do each week to show that you want more than friendship – think on it a bit, and I want you to imagine that he’s your best friend. How do you treat him, now? Little thoughtful gifts or acts of kindness will go a long way in gaining a Taurus’s trust and affection.

3. Reassure rather than criticize

This one’s important- it’s in trust and communication that things go from one place to another in relationships and your Taurus man wants to know that you care- even if you’ve got some issues. Be open and do not hold that back.

4. Share with him some of your goals and your dreams

Opening up to him will usually result in him following suit. Don’t limit this simply to the things you hope will happen with him, but rather, the things you want on the whole. This is also a good way to open the door to discussions about where the relationship is going, or where you want it to go.

5. Meet his family

One thing to know about Tauruses is this: they are very, very family oriented. Interacting in a pleasant way with his family will help to further solidify your place in his life.

The Taurus Man Two Step To Communication For Virgo Women

Taurus men are not as keen on talking about emotions or their feelings as you may be, Virgo. You might notice this if you see him staring off, ask him what’s on his mind: and he shuts right down.

The truth is, your Taurus man is a deep well of emotions and he does need to share them- though he may not be comfortable doing so for quite some time.

The kicker is, you can not- nor should you, attempt to push them into talking about their emotions. Blow-ups out of frustration will also send him running for the hills!

If you want to get your Taurus to open up to you naturally: show him how. Not in explosive, angry frustrated ranting – but rather, create a soft and stable environment for him to feel safe in expressing himself as well. In order to do this, it’s going to require a bit of vulnerability on your part, too.

Let’s look:

Take that first step

Again, it is vital to remember that Taurus men are not inclined to step out of their comfort zone. So if the two of you have been having a pretty good time and you’re waiting for a dramatic declaration of true love- you might be waiting quite some time.

When you are open with him, when you are honest: he will be much more comfortable sharing his innermost thoughts and feelings, too!

For some reason, when Taurus men are around women- they do feel more comfortable expressing their feelings.

Unfortunately, all too often men are inundated with all these messages about how they should be, what they should do: and it really sinks in with them.

With Taurus men, in particular, being quite traditional- no matter how open-minded he is- he may be holding back purely out of fear of rejection.

The other thing is- you’ll need to own your feelings. If you come at him in a judgemental way that lays the blame on him, instead of owning that it is in fact, your reaction: he will practically vanish in a puff of smoke! So, let’s go to Step 2.

Gently bring out his feelings by expressing yours clearly and in a healthy way

You might not have heard from him in a while and a lot of women go through this with Taurus men. You don’t hear from him for ages, he vanishes, and then suddenly- there he is again.

Sometimes it can be tempting to really lay into him for being inconsiderate: but stop. Take a deep breath and tell him how good it is to hear from him. I promise you will hear a change in his voice from then on!

In a very real way – this is positive reinforcement which also works very well for Taurus men. You, a Virgo woman are an excellent person to spot the little details: so, praise him here and there and watch him open up.

When you tell him that you’re happy to hear from him it does a few great things- now, he knows that you’re into him without question, you are offering praise for getting in touch and also, it shows you’d love to talk to him some more but… it’s not pushy. It’s positive and he’ll respond very well to this.

Let’s take a relatable peek at the problems you may be encountering as a Virgo woman with a Taurus man


Please don’t think I am being overly negative- my own partner is a Taurus and I think often, just seeing these things helps to soothe the mind: particularly for Virgo, who may sit there wondering what she’s done wrong!

I cannot tell you how often I have heard the refrain of the Taurus coming home from work, flopping down on the couch with a loud belch and ignoring his wife.

Oh, he’ll gulp down the delicious food – he may even tell you how good it is, or how he enjoyed it: but then when it comes time for him to reciprocate the positives, not so much.

Sounds familiar?

The darker side of Taurus men is a lazy, somewhat gluttonous fella who gets stuck in a rut and refuses to budge from a comfort zone.

He may, in fact, leave marks on your couch from where he’s settled in! If you ask him about this, if you prod: you’ll find your man suddenly baffled and maybe even in pure denial of whatever issue it is and it can be absolutely frustrating.

This is because, well, though he can be incredibly complex emotionally: in just about every other way, he is a very, very simple guy who just doesn’t think sometimes.

Or, you may find that when you bring up your concerns, no matter how polite you are- deny, deny, deny or worse: he starts talking about problems he’s got with you that he’s never, ever mentioned before.

So, how can you get him to think without pushing him into a denial and deflection marathon?

Odds are pretty good that before he met you, he had a routine. He had a life, of sorts, that he was living and patterns of behaviors that he’s been in for possibly decades.

This probably does not make any sense to you at all, as you see room for improvement in everything you do- and this is one of the most amazing things to me about Virgos- especially Virgo women!

The strength you have to look at your problems and then to fix them is incredible: except, your Taurus man is not a problem to be fixed!

Do you want to know the secret to understanding why a Taurus man does this?

He’s scared to death. You wouldn’t believe it, but it’s true. He’s afraid of anything that is subtle because that may hide something more complex. He’s afraid of anything delicate- and let me tell you a story about that one:

Though most Taureans are very family oriented: I have a colleague- another professional astrologer, who is a Capricorn woman. Well, her partner happens to be a Taurus man- and BOY is he Taurus. Taurus and Venus all over his chart and the aspects are intense!

Bit of a warning on that end, though: his Venus is in Gemini so he does not exactly love like a Taurus, he loves like a Gemini. Talk about confusing!

This is why a complete chart is SO important. However, for all his oddball love behavior, for the most part, he was eager to start a family, like a lot of Taurus men.

Then, as her pregnancy progressed: he became utterly terrified, in spite of himself. Now, that’s not an unusual thing for men in general but when the baby came, that fear got even worse. She said he held the baby like he was holding an ancient and very fragile artifact!

If you’ve ever heard the phrase “bull in a china shop” this very much applies to Taurus men’s emotions. They don’t think about it much when they feel and often can pull off some seemingly out of character behaviors when it involves anything that may in some small way- be delicate.

There’s an inherent fear there that comes across as thoughtless, when in fact, it’s an almost paralysis of the emotions! They fear to break the things they love the most and sadly, in many cases: in that fear, they do exactly that.

So, they’ll stick to the things they know are safe. Maybe he started out all romantic and passionate but then, when you got into it: suddenly, it was his way or the highway- whether you liked it or not!

This is because this is safe for him, emotionally.

Make no mistake – and for a Virgo woman, this can be particularly difficult: Taurus men are baffling with this “stuck in a rut” behavior.

Oh, he’ll probably complain a lot about it, but does he do anything? No. And then when you bring it up, you’re the bad guy. If you’ve been with your Taurus a while- you know exactly what I mean!

This is why it is SO important that you take the steps I’ve outlined here. Believe me, you’ll see changes.

Use your Virgo woman strengths to get that Taurus man in line!

You are one of those odd contradictions at times, Virgo. Though you can be a neat freak, quiet and thoughtful – you can also talk up a storm when you are interested in the subject, with Mercury as your ruling planet. At times, though, your perfectionism can get the better of you which makes things a little tricky- particularly when it comes to dealing with the Taurus man.

Because you are almost in a constant state of self-improvement, you may find that you tend to complicate matters a bit more than you ought to. The big thing to remember about your Taurus is that he is really, really very simple.

Your overthinking is just not going to help you in dealing with him and it may make things worse. Instead, remember: he’s not you. He doesn’t think like you and he doesn’t feel like you: but, this can be a big asset to you if you can tame your own thought processes and recognize it.

If you apply that tendency towards perfection and overthinking to the things you do for him or the conversations you have with him: you may just find this is the key to unlocking his own ability to express himself and his own feelings of security with you.

Though of course, as I mentioned, he does not like over the top dramatic explosions: long, very in-depth conversations about thoughts and otherwise do appeal to him on a certain level. You may find at first, you are doing all the talking: but, in time, he will also begin to open up more and more.

Taurus man Virgo Woman sexually

So how what’s your sexual compatibility like? Is it HOT or NOT?

I teach you a lot about a Taurus man’s SEXTROLOGY inside my Taurus Man Secrets program here.

So what can I do for you?

My name is Anna Kovach, and I’ve been working with the astrology of relationships for a very, very long time.

I have helped many women, just like you, navigate their partner’s charts to figure out exactly what was at play – and what they could do about that. With Taurus men, in particular, men can often be such complex and baffling creatures you wonder how they ever got labeled as the less complex gender in the first place!

If he has gone silent or distant

Taurus men are horrible about this- absolutely awful! For a Virgo woman, this can be particularly difficult because you’re over there, thinking of all the ways you might have done this- or what can happen if you don’t get in touch again. You have to leave him alone! If you push, you’re doomed. All hope is not, however, lost if you already did.

One of the biggest kickers in getting a Taurus man back into your life is making sure you’re ready to roll up your sleeves and do the heavy lifting. He’s not going to do that- at first! First of all, no matter what happened: you need to apologize to him.

This sounds awful but the truth is there is nothing in the world a Taurus man likes hearing as much as “You were right” unless it’s “I was wrong.” That stubborn ego is a mess to deal with but, it’s also a valuable ally at times in this.

You have to help him with that banged up ego- that’s the problem. Now, you may not have started the fight at all – it may have been a valid concern but until you get around that ego: you can’t deal with the root issue.

He isn’t going to want to open himself up to the criticism again- and that’s how he sees it, so, you need to again, take the first steps.

How do you do that if you have already texted and texted with no response? One big long email or letter just outlining how much you care about him, WHY you care about him and apologizing for hurting him.

You might try being a little specific in terms of things said, if that applies- but, appeal to that wounded ego and you’ll find it works better.

Close the letter with something about how you aren’t pushing but you wanted to let him know that you would be there for him, whenever he’s ready.

Final Thoughts on Taurus Man Virgo Woman Compatibility and Your Relationship

“It’s so frustrating! I feel like I’m the only one who cares about our relationship!”

This is such a common refrain from Virgo women when it comes to Taurus men. They seem like the perfect match at first- but, things can sour very quickly.

You may note, however, if you take a step back there’s a fairly clear pattern of behavior that you can work with. It starts with understanding that perhaps it’s not so much that he doesn’t care but that he doesn’t know how to relate, emotionally.

While of course, I make jokes- it’s very very easy to make a dunderheaded monster out of a Taurus: but this won’t solve your problem.

The issue here is the way that our society tends to teach men to fix problems, not talk about their feelings and make excuses: Taurus men are particularly susceptible to these influences because they are traditionalists at heart.

When you begin to understand that it takes two to participate in these patterns, you can begin to fix things. When you take a step back, you can see where things go south and from there, you can begin to address it easily. Your best bet?

Remove this power struggle dynamic that often occurs. No one has ever actually won a power struggle, believe it or not, and if you let go of the need to control him- you’re ahead of the game. Invitation, patience, and understanding are the key to getting what you want from him.

As you see changes, make sure you’re encouraging them. When he’s making progress, be sure to show your appreciation for it, whether that be responding to your texts quickly or otherwise.

  1. I need your help.. Im a virgo woman whos taurus man wants to take a break so he says to figure out what he wants after he lied to me about a woman he was texting, going on for 2 months. He said we cold get back together in a wk, a month then the other day said a year! One day he is telling me how beautiful amazing I am then literally the next telling me this and he had sex with her twice. He didnt volunteer this information and didnt want to admit he completely lied. We were so closed talking from morning until bedtime when hes on the road working. I dont understand how he can just cut me off. Before me he was a womanizing man whore. Obsessed with sex. All the time we spent together and he lied and cheated on me yet says were on a break? You cant figure out this taurus man hes like no other!

    1. That has nothing to do with him being a Taurus. Thats just who he is, and he has to want to change to be a better person. He is displaying when a man is uncertain and still playing the field. He is not ready to be in a serious, committed relationship.

  3. HI,
    I met a Taurus male last year and we hit it off. There were a few red flags but nothing I couldn’t handle because Virgos can fix it all lol :). We met online and he was immediately taken by me and I was a bit cautious. We spoke a lot and text and boom he disappeared as soon as I mentioned going away to meet a friend in Cali. Well after that I contacted him two weeks later and we hit it off again. He made it an effort to state he was happy I reached out bc he wouldn’t have. Well after I informed him that I wanted to know why he left he stated well “You went away duh”, I then clearly explained to him that I’m that type of girl and that I am honest,loyal,sweet and sincere. That crazy nights out and crazy vacays arent me. That I needed communication which is key from him. After that he was full speed ahead and was everything I has asked for until I got taste of the Bull. We argued one night before meeting bc of a few things 1. I chose Saturday night instead of a Friday night-he thought I had another date, 2. His work schedule was very busy and he had to work a lot of hours and possibly work again nights. 3. He compared me to his ex. Well I clearly defused the situation by stating I was tired and that we could continue to speak in detail another time. He asked me to send a text/pic and I asked in return to reply. When he didn’t respond after I text 30 min passed I informed him that I did not like the comparison and that if for some reason he was not interested in seeing me bc we haven’t set plans that I enjoy speaking to him and that if he would like to remain as friends and talk. He clearly responded and lashed out at me. I tried to apologize few days later he hung up on me and didn’t accept any of my text messages or calls. I waited 8 months reached out on facebook to wish him well for the holidays. He accepted but no further convo. His birthday came around I called to wish him a happy bday he received it well on text and phone and was almost happy and nervous at the same time. He replied to my text but late on Saturday at 11pm. I replied next day but he just wasn’t happy I guess that I did not respond the night of. After that its been crickets until finally I went to see him at his place and he was like a Deer with headlights at first but super sweet, — I looked great of course like all Virgos lol. He looked cute, simple came back from gym. He was shocked and nervous at the same time. To be honest with you I froze and couldn’t say much and he froze too. He stated that why did I come to his home and I said because you don’t talk to me and he said there is a reason for that and I said I needed to see you and can you please charge my phone lol(I just froze) I told him I don’t come with bad intentions. After that we kind of just stood there and stared at each other. It was nice and odd at the same time almost surreal. I could see in his face that he was just so sad and worn out and he placed his head down. I just wanted to give him a hug and hold his head up but I was frozen, sort of fear or rejection or fear of his response. All I could do was walk away. Its been two weeks and no response from him. I also have not wanted to reach out. It breaks my heart I know that hes not with anyone and that he looks at my facebook pics. I remember that there was an health issue with his dad and maybe he has a lot on his shoulders. I’m just blessed to have seen him and hope that one day when he is up to it, he is able to reach out again when hes ready. There was so much I wanted to say but I couldn’t. I would even take a friendship if he offered, he has a good heart under all that anger, maybe just a little misunderstood and frustrated. But if anyone has any advice or input to add on to my experience, I would strongly appreciate it or if you could put me in your prayers for him to return to me, it would be great. thank you and I wish all girls luck of any sign with Taurus male, kitten gloves girls bc they are super sensitive and don’t want you to lose a possible great love or possible soulmate like I did. much love

    1. I agree 100% with Tootsie. Men who are really into you simply do not behave this way, no matter WHAT SIGN they are. Eight months of no contact and you show up at his workplace? I’d be startled too! Plus, you are always the ine who reaches out to him. Not good. Let it go and find someone else. He clearly has.

      1. Hi Jonquil!

        Men who are into you are pretty adamant at showing you. They will do many things to make you notice. They will spend lots of time with you and they will be attentive. Yes, it’s true… no matter what sign they are that is the case. Communication is huge but if someone shows you time and time again that they just aren’t giving you what you deserve then that’s their character and may be best to move on. I wish you all the best!
