toothbrushes and Windex… and trade books back and forth.  Their picture frames will hang symmetrically, they won't raise their voices in shouting - and all will be melodious and marvelously mundane. 

Gradually, Libra will begin to depend on Virgo to keep his or her Scales in the correct juxtaposition - and begin to lean more and more on the Virgin's helpfulness.  Since the average Virgo doesn't really enjoy parties with lots of people and public functions when one is required to smile and make small talk when one doesn't feel at all like smiling and making small talk - and since Libra usually does enjoy such festivities - it's possible that the Libran will sort of float into the habit of having all the fun and expecting Virgo to assume the responsibility for the drab drudgery and dull duties of the association, whether it's keeping the chequebook balanced… washing dishes… entertaining Aunt Mildred and Uncle Casper… baby-sitting… mowing the lawn… sorting out the birdseed, tacking the linoleum, fixing the washer (most Virgos have magic fingers, and are mechanical wizards), hosing off the front lawn… waxing the car… wiring the hen house… walking the horse… brushing the sheep dog - turning the organ - and all those gay and glorious things which don't much appeal to Libra's fastidious taste. 

Before long, there will be rumbles of the ominous type under the ground (Virgo is an Earth Sign).  Not anything earthquaking, just a few tremors.  Virgo will first explain patiently and politely to Libra that he (or she) was not cut out in the shape of a door mat, but in the shape of a perfectly normal human being.  Virgo will then (still courteously) try to project to the smiling, pink-dimpled-balloon-with-rosy-ears that his (or her) cherished dream since childhood has not really been to become a valet, a maid, a chauffeur, a butler… or to achieve any career even remotely along these lines.  Virgo has more varied ambitions than those of chimneysweep or caretaker.  Libra will listen patiently and respectfully to the Virgo Bill of Rights, and after mulling over the pros and cons of it for a reasonable length of time, finally decide that Virgo's complaints are justified, and that he (or she) has indeed not been treating the Virgin fairly.  Then Libra will graciously offer to take over at least
half the duties and responsibilities, leaving Virgo with a large gob of extra time in which to keep busy and bustling in whatever manner the Virgo chooses.  It seems like the perfect solution, the ideal compromise.  For a while. 

Then Virgo will begin nit-picking and criticizing the Libran's efforts, which are simply bound to fall somewhat short of the perfection Virgo had earlier brought to all these matters.  Everyone knows you don't brush a sheep dog forward, you brush his fur backward, to give it more vitality.  You don't water the grass too much or you'll drown it… if you don't water it enough, it will dry out… the wax job on the car left three distinct blurs on the hood, not to mention the scratch on the windshield from Libra's blasted rings.  (Most Librans are mad about jewelry.)  Comes the night when Libra tacks the linoleum, leaves a few extra tacks on the kitchen floor, and Virgo steps on one while walking barefoot from the bedroom into the kitchen to take his (or her) milk of magnesia.  Then out pop the pins and needles, and when it's all over, the poor Libran is left prostrate on the carpet - or draped across the velvet chaise lounge, with his or her Scales swinging like a pendulum, perhaps even softly sobbing over the terrible truculence of it all.  Virgo will probably not be unduly sympathetic.  A triple combination of constipation, crossness, and insomnia can transform the normally kind Virgins into creatures not much resembling angels of mercy.  But they'll probably make up later, and things will be nifty-neat between them again - until the next time Libra regales Virgo with an overlong dissertation on one subject or another, and the latter is once more compelled to jab tiny holes in Libra's lovely logic and lyrical debate.  (The second time around, it may be Libra who becomes cranky - and Virgo who withers into a corner sniffling and feeling hated.) 

Most of the time, however, these Sun Sign friends, business associates, relatives, lovers, or mates will match up nicely.  Influenced as they are by the 2-12 vibrational pattern, Virgo will more often respect Libra than find fault, sensing that Libra knows things that could make life less chaotic.  Libra does.  Being ahead of Virgo on the karmic wheel, Libra can teach
