Being a Virgo born on August 28th, your generosity, trustworthiness and discipline are amongst your most well known qualities. There is little that you wouldn't do for a close friend or family members. At times it seems you put the interests of others above your own, but this does not stop you from meeting your own goals with great discipline. You pride yourself on your honesty and work ethic.
Earth is your sign's paired element and as a Virgo, you are the only zodiac sign with a fixed relationship to the element. Earth's influence can be seen in your tendency to be grounded and practical. You've never had your head in the clouds, instead trying to create expectations and goals based on reality. You have an appreciation for the physical and put effort into stimulating your sense. Embracing these qualities of Earth will be key to your future successes in life, but take care to avoid the overly conservative tendencies that accompany the element.
The Virgo's ruling planet is Mercury and as you were born in the first Decan, or part, of the sign, you experience two parts of Mercury's influence. Mercury is the planet of communication and its influence is responsible for your notable mental agility and communication skills. You often use your mental ability to understand the needs of others, which you then do your best to accommodate. In your work, your attention to detail is put to effective use. Your discipline may border on the level of obsessive, so take care to make time to relax and recuperate. As you prefer honesty over anything else, it is important to find close relationships that reciprocate your loyalty.
While choosing a career path is always difficult, your sociability, generosity and focus create a variety of career options for you to select from. Among the many communication based careers, writing, education or sales may be especially rewarding for you. Your quick whit may lead you to pursue a career in entertainment. If this is the case, look to the comedic work of Jack Black or the commercial success of Shania twain, who were both born on August 28th, for encouragement.
The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a merry-go-round. Life and experiences seem to come about in cycles. This repetition can be taken in two ways. On one side, you may grow weary and frustrated with the futility of trying to change what it is out of your control. On the other hand, you could embrace the pace of life, despite its predictability.
