HOROSCOPE

As a Virgo born on September 21st, you are no stranger to your emotions, as you are very sensitive. Your sensitivity is obvious to those closest to you, as you are very open about with them. The same cannot be said about the rest of the world, which you meet with great reserve. You have never been fond of the spotlight, instead preferring to work in the shadows unbothered. Your sensitivity also connects to your appreciation of art and beauty, which is amongst your most positive attributes.
