As a Virgo born on September 13th, your friends know you for being reserved, sensitive and artistic. While others seem to come alive in the spotlight, you find little enjoyment with all the eyes on you. Instead, you much rather find yourself in the background where you are comfortable. At times you may feel timid or shy, but this is easily countered when you are surrounded by close friends and loved ones. With friends and family, you find it easy to share your true self, which includes a great appreciation for life’s many beauties.
