Virgos born on August 31 have a showy yet tasteful personality and bask in the loving approval of others. Original and intelligent, they are often impractical. August 31 people often find themselves in unusual circumstances. This suits their love of adventure and also gives them the opportunity to try out some of their latent talents.


Friends and Lovers

August 31 natives show their unique nature through the friends they make. Even in choosing lovers, they are likely to select someone unusual. They are more liberal than most Virgos and are romantically attracted to individuals who share this characteristic.

Children and Family

August 31 men and women have a mildly rebellious attitude toward family life, though they generally end up much like their parents. Once they become parents they remember these attitudes and accept the rebellion of their children. As parents, they combine compassion and love with common sense.
