Virgo - Leo Cusp
If you happen to be born during the period of August 21st to the 28th, you're born on the borderline or cusp of the preceding sign of Leo, which is the 5th sign of the zodiac and your own, which is the 6th sign of the zodiac. As such, you are ruled by both the Sun and the planet Mercury. This makes you a person of sunny disposition with a strong intellectual leaning.
Being methodical, you're inclined to be a hard worker but unlike the typical Virgo, you have no problem standing out in the limelight and being the centre of attention, taking full credit for anything and everything that you do.
With a mixture of Solar and Mercurial energies, you have a unique type of intuition which serves you well. You understand the people you come in touch with through amazing subtle intellectual flashes. You usually trust this.
Unfortunately, if you're not recognised for what you do, unlike the typical Virgo of your birth sign, you may start to feel inwardly unfulfilled and frustrated. This will impact on your health adversely so you must find away to bring this part of your nature out into the open so that you don't develop grudges and become a closed off person.
You have an unusual blend of extrovert and introvert qualities, which puts you in the perfect position of being able to associate with all sorts of people. There are times when others don't understand you because you swing between these two extremes of your personality.
Virgo - Libra Cusp
If you were born between the 14th and the 21st of September, you fall in that area of the zodiac that is jointly governed by two star signs - Virgo and Libra. Your ruling sign is ruled by Mercury and Libra by Venus, which astrologically is an excellent combination, endowing you with both intellectual qualities as well as artistic and cultural interests.
You are an elegant Virgo, due to the influence of Libra, but also have a shrewd and analytical mind with great powers of perception and intuition. This combined influence endows you with considerable lack as you have the best of both worlds, namely the mental and emotional.
To explain a little about Libra is important here as it will endow you with many of the traits of that star sign. First and foremost, Libra needs to be seen to be beautiful and acceptable. Coupled with your predisposition to be highly self - critical, even over minor personality flaws within yourself, means that you could constantly struggle to be accepted by others, not because they don't like you but because you have an erroneous conception about how they see you. Try to accept yourself for who you are and then others will naturally accept you as well.
You're attracted to beautiful things and are quite likely a sensual and loving person. You have exotic tastes and love the best in furnishings and as far as personal grooming is concerned, you have a knack for looking really smart and elegant, but will never overdo it with gaudy looking attire.
You have a great imagination but have a tendency to stick to yourself. Some people might think that you're elitist and are snubbing your nose up at them, and this is why you need to prove them wrong. You should show those aspects of your personality that are kind, caring and service orientated. Others will soon realise that their judgment of you is rather harsh.
You need to be surrounded by quiet and soothing things. You need people in your life who understand you, are peaceful by nature and can share some of the artistic and cultural interests that you do as well.
Being ruled by Venus makes you prone to overindulgence in pleasure, food and other activities in life. As Mercury is a sensitive planet you need to be on guard against overdoing things and regulating your life with discipline.
