September 16 Horoscope

Being a Virgo born on September 16th, you are known for a reserved, sensitive and artistic nature. Your appreciation of beauty and art is profound, as you always seem to have a strong emotional connection to these things. You have great social skills, but do not use them to gain attention, seeing as you detest the spotlight. You are most comfortable handling tasks in the background, as not to disturb others or be disturbed yourself. While your coworkers and peers may know you as shy or timid, your close family and friends are lucky enough to witness your intimate thoughts and feelings.

Earth is your sign's paired element and of all the 12 zodiac signs, Virgo's are the only one with fixed relationship with the element. Earth provides solid ground and stability, which explains why you seek the same qualities in all aspects of your life. Your goals and expectations are grounded and realistic. You attempt to apply pragmatism to challenges, which is why you are so capable of overcoming them. Continue to embrace these qualities to reach your desired level of success in life, but take care not to become overly cautious or conservative, as this may cause you to miss worthwhile opportunities.

Mercury is the Virgo's planetary ruler, but as you were born in the third Decan, or part, of the sign, you also receive planetary influence from Venus. While it is Mercury's influence that ties to your agile mind and exceptional communication skills, it is Venus that ties into your appreciation of beauty and harmony. Your unique combination of planetary influences makes you more sensitive than most Virgos, which explains why never fail to care about what others think of you. Although your sensitivity leaves you vulnerable, it also allows you to love easily, so embrace it. Apply your appreciation for beauty to all aspects of your life, especially your dress and style, as this will bring you great satisfaction in life.

While selecting a career path is difficult, take comfort in the fact that your unique skills are well-suited for a variety of careers. Your sensitivity would be a good fit for caring professions such as counseling, teaching or education. Likewise, your analytical abilities would be a great fit for science or research. As an artistic soul, you may find the most satisfaction in art, music, acting or entertainment. If this is the case, look to the successes of performer Nick Jonas or actress Alex Bledel, who were both born on September 16th, for motivation.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is Mary and her little lamb. Life meets you with a wide range of mental and moral challenges. While there is nothing you can do to completely protect yourself, or those around you, from the dangers of the world, you must not lose your purity of heart.
