September 5 Horoscope

As a Virgo born on September 5th, you are known for your great organization skills and will power. Even in hectic situations that would overwhelm others, you can always find a way to bring control and order. Your skills become especially evident in group settings, where your understanding of others allows you to naturally take on the leadership role. When dealing with challenges that you find particularly important, your friends and family are amazed at your ability to do whatever necessary to get the job done.

The Virgo's paired element is Earth and in fact, you are the only zodiac sign with fixed relationship to the element. Although it may make you stubborn at times, the influence of Earth drives you to always seek stability. You want your life as sturdy as the ground you walk on, which explains why you are so rational with your expectations and goals. Embracing these qualities of Earth will greatly assist you on your journey to success, but be weary of Earth's negative influences. If you become overly cautious, you may miss out on many worthwhile experiences.

Mercury is the ruling planet of the Virgo, but as you were born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign, you also receive Saturn's mysterious powers as well. Mercury can be considered the planet of quick whit, intellect and communication. Saturn's powers lie in the realm of control and discipline. These two planetary combinations make you far more driven to perfection than any of the other Virgo Decans. It seems that you can't help but want the best out of yourself and those around you. While this desire is motivational, it can also cause disappointment. Avoid putting too much pressure on your family and friends, instead using your great communication skills for diplomacy and motivation.

As a person of both intelligence and discipline, there are a variety of career options available to you, although choosing one may be easier said than done. Your discipline and attention to detail would be well suited for a career in science, engineering or technology. If your social interests are more important, you may find refuge in a people-based career such as education or law. You may find the need for self-expression, if this is the case, you may find more fulfillment from a career in the arts or entertainment. Look to the eventful careers of Freddie Mercury and Michael Keaton, who were also born on September 5th, for motivation.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is an aristocratic family tree. Your individual character is a product of ancestral and cultural influences. Embrace the "roots" your family has laid for you and continue to expand your branches toward the sky.
