Happy birthday, Virgos!
The best time of year is here in my humble Virgo opinion. Beyoncé, Kobe Bryant, Zendaya, and Michael Jackson are some of the big names that are celebrated during Virgo Season and there are so many more! The end of August through the middle of September is when people of the Earth sign have birthdays, but there are a few ways August and September Virgos differ.
August Virgos are deemed as intellectual, sensitive, humorous, and petty individuals who are good at hiding their feelings while September Virgos are cautious, straightforward, rude yet humble, and supportive. Overall, Virgos can be overthinkers, detail oriented, and perfectionist.
Virgo season runs from August 23 through September 22 and many of your favorite celebrities fall in that time frame. Below are 12 movies or TV shows you can stream starring Virgo actors.
