Understanding the Virgo Leo Cusp

virgo leo cusp

Virgo Leo cusp individuals are interesting indeed. On the one hand, they possess the typical Virgo concern for others. On the other, they embody the Leo need to create.

Thanks to this interesting combination, the Virgo Leo cusp, at least when compared to the ‘pure’ Virgo, tends to be more effective when producing creative or business work. They have the creativity to explore lots of territory and explore lots of different combinations and possibilities. However, they also get the typical Leo drive and power that enables them to complete their projects.

This is very different from the typical situation many ‘pure’ Virgos find themselves in.

As we’ve mentioned before, Virgos tend to be so fixated on ideals or ‘things being right’ that they tend to find themselves waiting for the optimal time to start on projects. They hate their tendency to procrastinate but many try to deceive themselves into thinking that this procrastination is actually some form of preparation for optimal work quality.

In short, they justify to themselves their tendency to linger on projects, their tendency to take their time, and their habit of constantly turning things in late. Thankfully, the Virgo Leo cusp doesn’t deal with this.

When the Virgo Leo cusp gets inspired, get out of the way, you get the forward rush of the Lion with the intense thoroughness of the Virgo. In other words, once you get a Virgo Leo cusp going, it won’t stop until the job is done.

Virgo Leo Cusp Characteristics

The Leo is very extroverted, the Virgo not so much. When you have someone born in the cusp of these two signs, you get a very interesting study of contrasts.

In certain situations, the Virgo Leo cusp can be like your typical ‘take no prisoners’ Leo personality. This person can just charge into any social situation and handle it like a boss. However, depending on particular situations and circumstances, the Virgo side of their personality can take over and an almost paralyzing anxiety or, at the very least, a sense of reserve comes over the Leo Virgo cusp.

Sadly, this person is the type to kick him or herself for not being assertive enough in certain social situations. With that said, don’t walk away with the impression that the assertive Leo Virgo is happy with his or her social performance all the time. Far from it.

The Virgo side of this person often feels regretful if he or she was a bit too brash, too forward, or too candid. It is not uncommon for Leo Virgos to blow a deal, make a bad impression, or step on the wrong toes when coming on too strong.

Virgo Leo cusps have to contend with coming up with just the right mix between the take charge Leo and the demure and reserved Virgo essence of their character. This can take quite a long time to resolve.

The good news is that there isn’t much you can do about it. And that is precisely the bad news about it, too.

Fun-Loving but Reserved

Depending on how much of a cusp you are, the Virgo Leo cusp has all the fun-loving attributes of the typical Leo. You like to live life out loud. However, depending on how the moon and the planets are lined up, you might get a stronger tug from the Virgo part of your personality.

Your introverted and inward-looking aspect might get the better of you. If you feel this tension, no worries-it is perfectly natural. In fact, it might be a good thing. After all, if you have been around the block a few times, you know full well that you can get a bit ahead of yourself at times thanks to your Leo character.

A little reservation and sensitivity can go a long way in terms of making sure you take all other people’s feelings into consideration. This can only make the Virgo Leo cusp a better lover, leader, team member, or friend.

Avoid Your Tendency to Gamble

Usually, the Virgo, the true Virgo, can have a tough time gambling. While it is very easy to see the upside, the Virgo is astute enough to know the downside of gambling or risky business ventures. Make sure you are on guard against the risk taking part of your personality. Your Leo side tends to throw caution to the wind as long as you have some clear indication of favourable odds. However favourable your odds may be, they are still odds. They are still percentages and things just might not pan out. Given your tendency to go all in, this year might make for some uncomfortable gambles and career moves. Make sure you let your Virgo side run the numbers several times (as typical with Virgos). Let yourself wallow in the numbers and alternate possibilities before hitting Vegas or logging onto an online casino.

You might just thank your Virgo side. While you can make great calculations, you cannot let your Leo character run the show when it comes to career or financial risks. Otherwise, you might end up in a financially challenging position.

The great thing about the Virgo Leo cusp is that you end up at places you normally don’t end up in if you were to indulge only your Leo or Virgo side.

This great combination of traits help you get the necessary fire in the belly you need to turn your well-dissected and agonised numbers and ideas into a reality you can see, smell, touch, hear, or otherwise perceive. On the other hand, your Virgo side keeps your Leo side in check when it comes to the more reckless and unthinking aspects of your Leo nature.

If the Virgo Leo cusp is clear regarding these internal tendencies, you can take decisions that can take your career, relationships, social standing, and personal happiness to a whole new higher level. It all depends on how play it.

The Virgo Leo cusp is all about playing the odds, checking out both sides, and using the great benefits and power of both sides to come up with a great solution.

My Final Thoughts

The Virgo Leo cusps are often stubborn, self-centred, and depend upon logic rather than emotions in making decisions. The ideal partner would value their childlike nature and appreciate their obsession with cleanliness.

They would like their cusp partners to lead and show the way.

The cusps will not prefer those who keep nagging them and point out mistakes. This is because the Virgo Leo cusps are their worst critics and do not want their partners to do this job for them.

The ideal partner will cherish the cusp and bring out the small beautiful things that will make the relationship prosper. They will be cheerleaders really, appreciating your victories and your knack for perfection.
