If you were born between about August 19 to August 25, you were born on the Cusp of Exposure -- which isn't nearly as naughty as it sounds.
In fact, these cuspers are more likely to be found working hard, arguing their position or studying a new intellectual pursuit than they are of playing around -- but that doesn't mean they aren't any fun. They are just discriminating about where and when the fun should be had.

There's a bit of conflicting energy to these souls that arises from the Leo need for drama and attention meeting Virgo's more antisocial tendencies, so it's not uncommon for the Leo-Virgo cusper to go to one extreme or another: Loud and direct, or silent and secretive.
