Being a Virgo born on August 26th, you often impress others with your discipline, trustworthiness and generosity. While you may not feel every aspect of life is important, you take great care in dealing with those you do find value in. Your discipline allows you to be methodical and organized, which explains why you rarely let a detail go unnoticed. Your friends and family admire your work ethic, but appreciate you more because of your generosity. You may fail to notice it, but there are many times when you are more concerned with the needs of your loved ones than your own physical or emotional needs.

Earth

The Virgo's paired element is Earth and in fact, you are the only zodiac sign with fixed relationship to the element. At times you are the perfect representation of "down to Earth." You are practical and rational in your expectations and goals. You find great comfort in being grounded, which is why stability is one of your most important needs. Embracing these positive qualities of Earth will allow you to achieve what you have envisioned for yourself. Take care to avoid the negative qualities of Earth, which included becoming overly cautious and safe in all aspects of life.

Your sign's planetary ruler is Mercury and as you were born in the first Decan, or part, of the sign, you are subject to a double dose of Mercury's power. Mercury is primarily the planet of communication and is responsible for the clever, witty and intellectual workings of your mind. You often use your mental abilities to help others, as you can quickly notice when someone needs help. While you often use your mind for generous purposes, you can easily use the same dedication to solve any problem you face. Interestingly enough, you may be such a disciplined worker that you may fail to see the big picture at times, but luckily this is not a prominent flaw.

Your intellect and trustworthiness will make you a valued employee, your only challenge will be finding the perfect career path. You have the potential to be successful at reasoning based careers, such as science, engineering or research. If those fields do not seem appealing, you may find a compassionate career such as teaching or law, more rewarding. Your caring and generous nature, may lead you to a humanitarian career, such was the case with Mother Teresa, who was also born on August 26th. If the entertainment world is appealing, you may enjoying acting, much like Macaulay Culkin, another of your birthday twins.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is children of different ethnic background playing happily together. While the individual backgrounds of individuals can be quite different, there is no reason that difference should create disharmony. Embracing new people who are different from yourself can illuminate the spiritual value of brotherhood.
