Being born on September 22nd instead of the 23rd can have a much larger impact on your life than you think. Our sun sign represents the core of who we are, and just one day separates you between becoming a Virgo or a Libra if you have a September Zodiac sign.
Even though these two share a birth month, they have some stark differences that are not easy to ignore. But how different can a Libra horoscope be from a Virgo horoscope? Let’s take a look at what makes each of them tick, and then see how similar or different the two signs really are.
Overview of a Virgo
A Virgo is the astrological sign of the organized, kind friend you want to have when you need stability. If you asked a Virgo to be your maid of honor, you can expect an organized itinerary two months in advance of the bachelorette party, reservations made ahead of time to avoid long waits, and a suitcase full of your favorite snacks for the road trip.
They’re prepared, enjoy structure, and are filled with compassion. They are one of the earth signs, so they are grounded as opposed to a water sign who goes with the flow.
They’re very organized in all aspects of their life, from work to the layout of their sock drawer. Structure makes them feel safe, so don’t be surprised if they have a workout routine they need to stick to or always have to be in bed by a certain time.
They always want to help, whether you’re moving or someone in the office is having difficulty finishing up a project. They use their organizational skills and thorough nature to get the job done.
Because of their love of structure, they are detail-oriented and also particular. They like things to go a certain way and don’t like when things are out of place. It can feel extremely stressful when things aren’t going according to plan.
Overview of a Libra
Libra, the air sign ruled by Venus, is the sign of the diplomat. They are excellent communicators and have a special skill for helping others reach a compromise. They can see both sides of the situation and that helps them come up with a solution that will please all parties. This skill can be used in the office or in a friend group.
They’re easy to get along with, because they love making everyone happy. This trait can sometimes become paralyzing for them, because if they have to make a decision that doesn’t bring everyone joy, they won’t want to commit to it. The Libra is a sign represented by scales, which shows their love of balance and order.
They are adaptable and will follow the wind wherever it takes them. They have an agreeable, free spirit and can get along with any crowd.
You can find them in leadership positions, not because they have a hunger for power, but because they know they can make decisions that will help the most people. Their clarity and insights are valuable assets to their personality.
Differences and Similarities Between the September Zodiac Signs
Even though they share a birth month, these two signs have some marked differences. Even in their similarities, they have different approaches to the same goal.
Let’s break down some of these differences to compare and contrast the signs.
Both signs are kind to those around them.
A Virgo friend is one you lean on for support. They are unwavering, grounded, and sensical, so they won’t let you spiral if you’re having a tough day. They can give you clarity to help you master whatever demon you’re facing.
A Libra wants to see you be happy, and will do whatever they can to bring you joy. They are led more by their emotions than a Virgo, so if you need someone who will understand your emotion, they’re the better option to reach out to.
Both Virgos and Libras like to help solve problems that those around them are experiencing.
A Libra will help discover a compromise if two parties are disagreeing. They’re great at helping people overcome their differences to see the big picture.
A Virgo will use their love of structure to come up with an organized plan to help their friend overcome whatever it is they are facing.
Virgos and Libras are most dissimilar when it comes to their views on structure. Libras are extremely go with the flow while Virgos need specific rules set in place in order for them to operate. Libras will approach a project with creativity, excited to see what direction the project will take them in. They’re okay if they end up in a completely different place than when they started.
Not so for a Virgo. For a Virgo to succeed on a project, they need to have a detailed action plan with concrete steps they can take to get from point A to point B. If things change along the way, they can get overwhelmed, but they’ll be able to bring themselves back into focus when they draft a new outline to follow.
