Those individuals whose birth dates fall between September 19 to 23 are known for their beauty and charm―they are born on Virgo-Libra cusp! Virgos are known for their devotion, while Librans are known for their art of attaining balance.
When Mercury teamed up with Venus!
Virgo is ruled by the planet Mercury that is associated with communication and reasoning abilities, while Libra is ruled by Venus, the planet of beauty, love, and pleasure. If you know someone who can be called ‘beauty with brains’, she (or he) is most likely a Virgo-Libra cusp!
Virgo belongs to the Earth element and has been blessed with mutable qualities, which means that those belonging to this sign have the ability to change as and when the situation demands, to sort of fit in to the environment. On the other hand, Libra is an air sign with cardinal qualities. This means that Librans are the initiators of new beginnings. Having said that, the unification of these two zodiac signs brings about an interesting set of traits in those born on the cusp dates of September―that vary, but are widely believed to be 19 to 23―and makes them prosper in their goals and desires.
Virgo and Libra are the sixth and seventh signs of the zodiac chart, respectively. They come in between the zodiac chart, emphasizing the mid-time of the human lifespan. This is the phase where a person tends to seek a balance in life by evaluating the path that he/she is on, and using all the opportunities that come in this path to the optimum level. This is the time where all the childishness, the need to experiment, err, and learn, passes on, and one achieves a sense of maturity. Let us understand in the following section, how these two zodiacs influence the personality of a person born in between them.

The Negative Traits
In the quest to find perfection in everything, this cusp is likely to get caught into becoming a little shallow and materialistic. There may come a time where outer appearances may overshadow the inner qualities of those that come along, leading to superficial approach in life.
The inclination towards art and beauty, due to the impact of Venus, may make this sign-bearer overindulgent in many ways. It can also happen that he/she ends up indulging in his/her own desires rather than looking out for others.

Being a perfectionist at heart, yet being affected by the need to strike a cordial, diplomatic, and midway balance, this person tends to struggle in choosing the way to take.

With an adverse environment around, this cusp combo can also become quite cynical in nature, suspecting the real intentions of those around, all the time.
Although this individual has a streak of intellectualism and spirituality, the spiritual and emotional side tends to succumb to the worldly pleasures. Therefore, he/she needs to introspect often, to bring the scales to a proper balancing position and to see beauty as it should ideally be.
If you have the eye for beauty, it is all around you. Upon careful evaluation of the good and bad that come along with being born as a Virgo-Libra cusp, one can say that they are the gifts that, sort of, bring about the ‘unwanted things’ too.

The good news is that there is no need to worry. Having the responsible, modest, honest, and compassionate tendencies that this cusp has, even if he/she gets a little lost or torn between spirituality and materialism, all he/she needs to do is to introspect within, find a way to come back to the goodness and beauty as it should ideally have been.
