Being a Virgo born on September 18th, your sensitivity and reserve are among your most easily recognized personality traits. The spotlight is not your place of preference, as you are much more comfortable behind the scenes or in the background. While some may describe this inclination as shy, you just rather not be disturbed or bother others when engaged in tasks. Although you sometimes have trouble sharing your thoughts and feelings with others, you maintain very intimate and open relationships with your close friends and loved ones.

Earth

The Virgo's elemental pair is Earth and in fact, you are the only zodiac sign with a fixed connection to the element. You desire stability and may even be stubborn in your attempts to obtain it. Just as Earth provides solid ground to walk on, you search for the same reliability in all aspects of life. Earth's influence is directly linked to your practical and realistic expectations. As you continue to embrace Earth's elemental powers, you will work positively to achieving your goals. Be wary of Earth's negative influence, which include an excessive amount of caution and conservatism.

Mercury is your sign's planetary ruler, but you also receive planetary influence from Venus because you were born in the third Decan, or part, of your sign. Mercury's influence over your personality can be clearly seen in your sharp intellect, communication skills and cleverness. Likewise, Venus's influence becomes obvious when your love of beauty, sensitivity and sociability are considered. These two planets combine to make you far more sensitive and loving than the other Virgo Decans. In fact, you are so loving that it often leaves you at risk of being easily hurt. While this may be painful, do not let any setbacks weaken your ability to find beauty in all that you encounter.

Finding a career is never an easy task, but your natural abilities will give you several options to choose from. As a person who works with great dedication out of the spotlight, you would fit well in careers such as science, research, or finance. Likewise, your sharp mind would be well-suited for careers in education, administration, or writing. Your whit and creativity may be a perfect fit for lyrical expression, which was the case for Xzibit, who was also born on September 18th. In whichever path you choose, let the determination and discipline of Lance Armstrong, another of your celebrity birthday twins, inspire you.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a boy with a censer serving near the priest at an alter. Regardless of your religious affiliations, there is a great benefit to practicing your spirituality. If you have been hesitating to revitalize your faith, make an effort to begin your spiritual journey.
