Virgo is concerned about building a stable relationship that will survive the toughest of seasons.


Those born on September 18 are incredibly committed and loving once they are in a serious relationship. Some may unfairly assume that these Virgos are emotionally indifferent. However, this is only because they are incredibly reserved until they feel that they can trust the other person.

Compatible Signs for September 18 Zodiacs

Pisces is highly intuitive and can connect to a Virgo on a strong level.


Not every zodiac sign is going to be compatible with those born on September 18. For example, Virgos may find it difficult to deal with the aggressive nature and explosive temper of an Aries. Additionally, they may think that Libra is too indecisive and fickle. Virgos will often find themselves attracted to other earth signs and/or water signs.

These two elements are the most in tune with the type of love and care that Virgos crave. Capricorn and Taurus are the two most compatible earth signs for Virgo. Capricorn is an incredibly hard worker who is highly ambitious and practical. Taurus is sensual and stable — they don’t like big changes. Together, these two earth signs align with Virgo’s need for order, trustworthiness, and practicality. 

The water signs, on the other hand, deal with the emotional currents of life. Since Virgos have a tendency to overanalyze feelings, a water sign can help them channel their emotions and really experience them. Scorpio is a highly loyal and intense water sign who sees and appreciates the deeper parts of life. Cancer is known for wearing their heart on their sleeve and will be highly protective of Virgo in a relationship.

Pisces is another possibility; however, they are considered the exact opposite sign of Virgo. This means that the relationship can either be extremely good or extremely bad. Pisces is highly intuitive, and these two signs can connect on a strong level. Together, they will be devout lovers. However, there are times when Pisces’ delusions may be too much for Virgo’s practical nature to handle. On the flip side, Pisces may view Virgos as overly critical and harsh.
