As a Virgo born on September 11th, your quick whit, will power and discipline are amongst your most defining personality traits. You are a problem solver and will put in any amount of work or time necessary to conquer a challenge. People are impressed with your natural ability to lead. Although you are assertive, you use an understanding of people to delegate tasks with sensitivity. Those closest to you feel that you are a bit of a perfectionist, but this only stems from your desire to get the very best out of yourself and others.
Earth is your sign's paired element and in fact, the Virgo is the only zodiac sign with a fixed relationship to the element. Earth's influence over your personality becomes obvious when your grounded and practical demeanor is considered. Instead of wasting times with your head in the clouds, you are interested in there here and now. This may explain why you find so much enjoyment in stimulating your senses. By continuing to be realistic and pragmatic, you will achieve your goals. However, be weary of the fact that overly embracing the cautious aspects of Earth may lead to detrimental conservatism.
Mercury is your sign's ruling planet, but because you were born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign, you also receive planetary influence from Saturn. Both planets play an equal role in forming your unique personality; Mercury is responsible for your keen intellect and communications kills, while it is Saturn that is connected to your strong discipline and control. Mercury and Saturn work together to make you far more success driven than the other Virgo Decans. Likewise, they are responsible for your abilities as an effective leader. While you will always be caught up in striving for perfection, take care to also put time into close, personal relationships, as you will derive great happiness from them.
Although choosing a career path is no easy feat, your abilities as an organized leader are well-suited for a variety of careers. You naturally gravitate to authoritative positions, which would make careers in business, management or law ideal. Your organizational skills and focus would also be a great fit for thinking careers, such as science, economics or research. If you are more artistically inclined, a career in musical expression may be rewarding, such was the case with Ludacris, who was also born on September 11th. In whichever career path you choose, look to the versatility of Harry Connick Jr., another of your celebrity birthday twins, for inspiration.
The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a swimming race. While you may have the urge to shy away from competition, there is much value to be found in group the togetherness of group competition. This symbol may also relate to a need to open yourself to the encouragement and support of others.
