With these two signs, there is some similarity and compatibility. They are both very exacting. This stops many areas of disagreement. They both take great pride in appearances and surroundings. They both are very practical and down to earth about mundane matters. Their sense of responsibility and devotion to duty is highly developed. They can find a friend in each other, when the outside world is too much to cope with. This Mercury-sun combination should find mutual grounds for an agreeable partnership. On the negative side, both Virgo and the goat are extremely stubborn. She will also have to moderate her Virgo tendency to criticise him too much as goats tend to balk and butt with their horns when nagged or criticised too much. These are two earth signs that will find complementary values in their sense of the practical and realistic needs of life. The relationship could suffer from lack of romance, as both tend to be a bit reserved in this area. Once they break their chains of restrictions, they will learn to love without suffocating the other.
