It's a wonder they ever get around meeting each other.  However, once they gather the courage and aggressiveness to say "Hi!" to each other, and make a date to meet again (which will be kept punctually), the friendship, or business partnership, or whatever (usually a combination of both) will probably flower slowly, surely and serenely into a beautiful relationship.  Within a family group, these are usually the two who get along smoothly together, and feel isolated from the rest of the radicals around the breakfast table. 

I once knew a Taurus musician and a Virgo singer.  They used to meet almost every morning in front of the Brill Building in New York (the headquarters of Broadway songwriters).  The Bull was - and still is - an extremely talented composer.  With or without formal musical training, he'll eventually make it to the top of his field.  But he harbours the typical Taureans resentment against fate, because family responsibilities prevented him from attending Juilliard, and therefore he carries a fair-sized chip of wood on his shoulder (which can make your posture sag a little, along with your spirits, when you're also lugging around an electric guitar all day). 

This Bull is suspicious of singers who want to use his songs without paying him first, or signing a contract, and he also stubbornly refuses to let anyone sing his tunes if he thinks they're not right for him (or her).  However, the Virgo male vocalist could usually talk the Bull into or out of anything.  The Virgin singer (and of course I use the term Virgin symbolically) was picky and choosy about the material he recorded, and invariably wanted to change a note here or a word there in the lyrics, before he thought was perfect enough to match his perfect voice, and his perfect judgment of public taste.  Still, he had fewer objections to the Taurean's songs than to anyone else's because an association between Taurus and Virgo is influenced by the harmonious 5-9 Sun Sign Pattern.  Somehow, they range clear and true to his critical and acutely sensitive ear. 

These two once considered a business partnership in a publishing company, but Virgo is ruled by the restless planet Mercury (until Virgo's true ruler, Vulcan, is discovered and identified) and so the Virgin singer eventually became annoyed and impatient with the Bull's lack of aggressive drive, left New York, and married a bright Sagittarian girl named Sharon, who cheered him up for a while (Sag and Virgo being a tense, 4-10 Sun Sign Pattern, it was a very short while, but they could still reconcile, when their stars cross again).  It was good for him, however brief, because all Virgos desperately need cheering, and after being touched by Sag Sharon's Jupiter vibes of joy and luck, the Virgin vocalist finally drifted into other areas of show business he felt needed to be perfected by his kindly, courteous and meticulous attention. 

Taurus just shrugged his strong shoulders, adjusted the wooden chip on his shoulder, and his guitar strap, kept plugging and plodding, and quietly waited for his big chance.  (With Taurus, it has to be big - huge - or forget it.)  Now I hear he's writing he musical score for a Hollywood film, featuring top two stars.  Patience pays. 

That's how Taurus often wins out of Virgo - in the area of patience.  Taurus always has it.  Virgo usually lacks it.  Virgos can appear to be tranquil, calm and patient on the surface, but their minds are constantly ticking way, and tucking in them all sorts of inner frustrations when things don't happen as quickly or exactly in the manner they'd like.  The flesh is willing, and able to remain on Earth (for a while) but the mental attitude is changeable and restless.  Mercury is the true ruler of the Air Sign Gemini, and is not at all at home in its temporary association with the Earth Sign of Virgo.  Consequently (possibly through inner sheer boredom), the tricky Mercury sometimes agitates Virgins into behaviour against their real natures, and contrary to their deepest desires.  Virgos may take heart, however, for, as detailed on the Virgo-Virgo chapter of this book, when Vulcan is recognized and named, within a few years (or sooner) it will begin to express its powerful, magnetic vibrations through the personalities of all Virgins, causing them to be stronger, tougher, and less likely to switch horses, ideas, girls or career in the middle of the
