January 9 Zodiac Birthday Signs – The influence of your birthday suggests that you are a practical and hardworking Capricorn with the ability to endure. Security-conscious, you like to build on the basis of long-lasting results, and once you are committed to a person or project, you can be loyal, dutiful, and responsible. A universal quality to your thinking can manifest as a humanitarian interest in others. It would be wise, however, to avoid negative thinking, which is likely to bring on feelings of frustration and impatience and thereby make it difficult to realize your ideals and wishes.
With the supporting influence of your decanate ruler, Taurus, you possess natural creative talents. You may wish to develop these through the arts in order to give expression to your imagination and sensitive emotions, or you may use your talents and charm in your dealings with people. A longing for love and affection points to a need for approval and emphasizes the importance of relationships in your life.
A love of beauty and the good life suggests that you prefer to be surrounded by harmony and luxury, but a dislike of discord may cause you to hide your head in the sand and avoid necessary confrontation. Although at times you will have to face obstacles and disappointment, avoid letting pessimism or materialism get the better of you. Detachment rather than inflexibility is often the key to solving many of your problems. Fortunately, you possess the perseverance and intelligence to win through sheer determination.
From the age of twelve to forty-one, when your progressed Sun moves through Aquarius, you gradually become more independent, although you value friendship. You may be attracted by unusual interests or humanitarian issues, or you may have a strong desire to express your individuality. After the age of forty-two, when your progressed Sun moves into Pisces, your emotional sensitivity becomes enhanced and you develop a more meaningful inner life. This can be reflected in your visions, dreams, and ideals. In your middle years, after numerous changes, you are likely to find gains through partnership and cooperative relationships. At the age of seventy-two, there is another turning point as your progressed Sun enters Aries, emphasizing a need to take the initiative and be brave and direct in your relationships with others. New beginnings are also indicated with this progression.
Work & Vocation
Enterprising and imaginative, you may want to have the freedom to do as you wish and be independent. A need for variety and change suggests that you are likely to combine travel and work. Your desire for activity and progress may lead you to experiment with many occupations. Whatever you do, avoid routine and mundane jobs that do not promise advancement or excitement. Idealistic and creative, with a poetic heart, you may be drawn to the worlds of art and music. If you are interested in business and social reforms, marketing, economics, promotion, and politics are just a few of the careers that you may find interesting. An ability to think quickly and a charming personality suggest that you may want to combine traveling with business and work as a tour operator, travel agent, long-distance commuter, or salesperson.
Famous people who share your birthday include former U.S. president Richard Nixon, singers Joan Baez and Crystal Gale, writer Simone de Beauvoir, and entertainer Gypsy Rose Lee.

Love & Relationships
Idealistic about the perfect partner, you may even opt for platonic relationships if you fail to find anyone who can measure up to your high ideals. To avoid disappointment and frustration, you may have more luck with a partner who has a humanitarian nature.
