September 17 Birthday Horoscope
September 17 Zodiac Sign - Virgo
As a Virgo born on September 17th, you are characterized by your sensitive, artistic and reserved nature. While some people live for the spotlight, you cannot relate. You find much greater comfort in the background, where you can go about your business undisturbed. While your coworkers and peers may only witness your reserve, your family and friends get a much more exciting picture, as you are comfortable to share all of your private thoughts and feelings.
September 17 Birthday Element - Earth
Earth is your sign’s paired element, and of all the zodiac signs, the Virgo is the only to have a fixed relationship with the element. At times you may find yourself to be stubborn, but this is only the product of the stability you demand from your environment. You want the various aspects of your life to be just as reliable as the ground you walk on. It is earth’s influence that keeps you practical, pragmatic and pursuing realistic goals. Although Earth’s influence is a great asset, be careful to avoid becoming overly cautious, as this will actually hinder your success.
September 17 Ruling Planet - Mercury
The Virgo’s ruling planet is Mercury, but as you were born in the third Decan, or part, of the sign, you receive a helping of Venus’s planetary powers as well. Mercury is the planet of communication and its influence helps explain for your mental and social capabilities. Venus is the planet of harmony, which explains the tremendous sensitivity and artistic appreciation that you possess. Your planetary influence is unique and makes you far more sensitive than the other Virgo Decans. You will always love to find the beauty in things, which is great because you have a natural ability to do so. Your sensitivity leaves you emotionally vulnerable at times, but it is also the source of your greatest happiness, as it allows you to love easily and fully.

Virgos born on September 17 are fighters and survivors. They take life seriously, approaching each obstacle as a challenge. It’s sometimes said that they are old in youth and youthful in old age. They have real grit and remain true to their ideals no matter what.
