A date such as the 17th of September has an intense quality to it, showing how surprises affect our daily lives. Although it can be quite rewarding in terms of intelligence, social interactions and the level of personal freedom, it is also a date of trauma, to one's physiology or their ego. Whatever the case, hazy circumstances easily taint the image and bring pain into lives of those born on this date, teaching them how to set free from restrictions that are no longer necessary, and bringing them in touch with their body's truest needs.

September 17th Horoscope


It isn’t easy for the Sun to cope with the intensely distant nature of Uranus and Neptune and this row may get quite difficult to deal with if a person born on September 17th doesn’t constantly nurture their child within. Many things could remain unseen and kept at a safe distance for way too long, but change is calling on them every step of the way. It is not until they realize that change will in fact set them free that they will truly live up to their potential and become as vast and light as they are meant to be.

Traumas to their body, soul and ego are possible, and they are to accept the inevitability of life to set free and live in this moment in time. Their body has trouble carrying their own head and mind on its shoulders, and it is imperative that they nurture their physiology as a true Virgo, staying dedicated to their routine, sleeping patterns and the strength of their neck and spine muscles. When they let go to ungrounding experiences they easily get overwhelmed and hurt, as if their physiology constantly reminds them to return to the real, physical world, and do something big inside it.

Love and Emotions

There is a lot of stress in lives of those born on the 17th of September and their emotional world may seem as if it was turned upside down. They are open for experiments, freedom of connecting, and don’t normally hold on so firmly as other Virgos to common views on relationships, marriage, and finding the one partner to spend their lives with. They need a good friend to connect to and someone to give them freedom to live as strangely or adventurously as they feel the need to.

Their nature is much warmer than they often show and to find true understanding, they need to embrace their authenticity in tenderness, allowing their hearts to beat in their normal pace instead of constantly rushing through life. Sometimes, they might choose to be alone, only to protect their sense of inner peace, but this won’t really satisfy the core of their need to connect and be a part of something inspiring and ideal. When they find that one true friend to touch them they way they wish to be touched, they will finally feel like they belong somewhere. Maybe even several times.


The purpose in lives of those born on September 17th always turns their attention to the material world, their place in the system, and living in the here and the now. They are to learn how to find solid grounding, earn more money, and be fully functional in the material world instead of fantasizing about it in their mind. Action is required, initiative and focus, as well as physical activity that will boost their strength of body and mind, lifting their entire life to a completely new level.

What They Excel In

People born on September 17th excel in all things that are uncommon but still need their typical Virgo attention to detail. This makes them great at computer science, hardware production, technology and testing new systems. They are astrologers with a practical kick, those meant to support through healing techniques that aren’t as extravagant or mental as one might anticipate and need a solid foundation to work from in order to be successful and truly shine.

September 17th Birthday Gift

Choose something that will surprise them or simply organize a gathering of their favorite people, something that will keep them feeling loved and nurtured. You can also go with karaoke equipment, or any technical gadget that can be used for practical purposes or connecting to other people.

Positive Traits for September 17th Born
