September 20 Horoscope

Being a Virgo born on September 20th, your reserve is almost as well-developed as your sensitivity. While your peers and coworkers may categorize you as shy or timid, this is only because you are more comfortable working in the background. Similarly to your lack of comfort with the spotlight, you also find it difficult to open up about your feelings and inner thoughts. Luckily, you are very open with your loved ones and can express your most intimate thoughts to your friends and family with ease.

Earth is your sign's paired element and you are the only zodiac sign with a fixed relationship to Earth. Earth allows solid ground to stand on, which explains why you demand the same stability from life. You will work with pragmatism and fortitude to achieve realistic goals. Embracing these earthly qualities will keep you on the path to success, but beware that too much practicality can easily evolve into over-cautiousness.

Mercury is your sign's ruling planet, but as you were born in the third Decan, or part, of the sign, you also are subject to Venus's unique influence. While Mercury is the planet of communication and mental agility, Venus is the planet of sensitivity, harmony and beauty. It is no wonder then that you are far more sensitive than any of the other Virgo Decans. Your sensitivity becomes your greatest strength when you are finding the beauty in others and the environment. Your high capacity for love also makes you very vulnerable to being hurt. Finding balance between these highs and lows may be the most difficult emotional challenge you face in life.

Being both intelligent and sensitive, there are several careers that would fit you well. You should consider careers that utilize your social skills, such as public relations, advertising or promotion. In the same light, your analytical ability would be well-suited for a career in research or education. Your creative abilities may lead you to a career in writing, which was the path of Upton Sinclair, who was also born on September 20th. If you are tempted by the acting world, look to the successes of Sophia Loren, another of your celebrity birthday twins, for inspiration.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a baldheaded man who has seized power. Although our world seems to be a popularity contest at times, do not lose the value of personality in a moment of crisis. With hard work and inner strength, you can be a commanding and effective leader.
