As a Virgo born on September 9th, your will power and organizational skills are amongst your greatest talents. You impress others with your ability to work tirelessly in the face of tough challenges. You can bring control to almost any situation, especially when leading others is involved. Your natural ability to understand others allows you to delegate tasks in an effective way. Your friends, family, peers and coworkers admire your drive and ambition.
Your paired element is Earth and being a Virgo, you are the only zodiac sign with a fixed relationship to the element. You want a life that is as stable as the ground you walk on. Although this desire is sometimes accompanied with stubbornness, it is also responsible for your practicality and pragmatism. You waste little time with your head in the clouds, instead always looking to realistic goals. These qualities will put you on a path to success, but avoid the over-cautiousness that sometimes accompanies Earth's influence.
Mercury is your planetary ruler, but as you were born in the second Decan, or part, of your sign, you also receive the planetary influence of Saturn. If Mercury's powers could be summarized as that of communication and intellect, Saturn's influence would be delve in the realms of discipline and control. Your planetary influence combines to make you a more natural leader and success driven than the other Virgo Decans. Your drive may be so high at times that you become dissatisfied with any outcome besides perfection. In order to avoid disappointment, stay true to your sensitivity, especially when dealing with others.
Your discipline and fortitude will allow for success in nearly any field. As a natural leader, you may find the world of business or management appealing. If you rather be your own boss, you may be satisfied with the entrepreneurial route, such was the case with Colonel Sanders, who was also born on September 9th. If entertaining others is your true passion, you may be drawn to writing or acting. Look to the longevity of Adam Sandler's career, another of your celebrity birthday twins, for encouragement.
The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a violent volcanic eruption. There may be frustrations or concerns in your life that you are suppressing. While this may seem like a good idea, there is a great danger in bottling up your emotions. Take time to sort through your feelings on your own terms, to avoid an unwanted "explosion."
