As a Virgo born on August 29th, generosity, discipline and a quick mind, are among your strongest characteristics. You are dedicated and focused in tasks that you feel are important and in turn, you show the same amount of dedication when interacting with your loved ones. You effortlessly understand the needs of others and rarely pass on the chance to help someone you care about. At times, you are so generous that you fail to acknowledge your own needs, instead catering to the needs of others.

Earth

The Virgo's paired element is Earth and in fact, you are the only zodiac sign with a fixed connection to the element. The Earth's influence is most seen in your grounded and practical nature. You find little satisfaction in taking risks, as you prefer to strive for stability. While prudence is amongst the most positive of Earth's influences, you run the risk of becoming overly cautious if you always play it safe.

Your planetary ruler is Mercury, but as you were born in the first Decan, or part of the sign, you actually experience two helpings of Mercury's planetary influence. Your great attention to detail and discipline are largely the result of Mercury's influence over mental agility. In addition, Mercury also explains for your outstanding communication skills. Your planetary influence allows you to work far more diligently than your peers. Although you find fulfillment from your career and material pursuits, make sure to take the time to build strong, close relationships. You will find the most satisfaction with people that share in your loyal and dependable qualities.

As a social and generous person, there a variety of career paths in which you would excel. You would be well suited for intellectually based careers, such as education, law or science. If you find a cause to support, you may find great satisfaction in the non-profit sector. Your quick mind and creativity may lead you to favor artistic expression, much like Lea Michele, who was also born on August 29th. In any career you choose, realize you have the potential to achieve greatness. Look to the work of pop superstar Michael Jackson for inspiration, as he was also shares your August 29th birthday.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a Harem. Like servants waiting to be called to duty, you may also be waiting for something. Whether you are anticipating a material gain or an emotional one, do not be overwhelmed with the emptiness of waiting. Your time will soon be coming.
