Virgo born on August 28

Planet: Mercury

As August 28 you are a methodical and efficient person who is caring and concerned about genuinely contributing to making the world a better place.

You always give your best and will spend years training to improve your capabilities.

You can appear older than you actually are as you are often solemn, with a pensive expression.

Your saving grace is your earthy sense of humour which borders on the ridiculous.

You are ambitious but not hasty and will spend a long time taking slow, steady steps to get to the top.

You tend to become frustrated if you are not promoted and this causes you huge amounts of self-doubt – you can be far too hard on yourself.

When you focus instead on your relationship as a journey where you can open up and be truly understood, you feel far more fulfilled.
