January 9th is a date that marks the end of one cycle and preparations for the new one.

January 9th Horoscope

(Pluto) – NEPTUNE – (Pluto) – SUN

The combination of the Sun with Neptune is one of the toughest ones in the zodiac, simply because the Sun seeks center of one's personality and points us to our core, while Neptune disperses us into pieces and makes us see the world outside of our shell. With Saturn as the ruler of their Sun, it is obvious that there is a lesson for one's personality and ego hidden here. No dishonesty will be forgiven and people born on January 9th need to stay away from all mind-altering substances, drug abuse, medication, nicotine and alcohol. All outer influences of this kind make it harder for them to metabolize experiences in life and weaken their aura dramatically.

On the second level of planetary recognition we will see that individuals born on January 9th carry the combination of two powerful forces ñ The Sun and Pluto on their way to self-discovery and reaching the position of their Sun. It is the circle of action and consequence that defines their nature and for as long as they understand responsibility well enough, they can become truly powerful and have a significant impact on the world around them.

Love and Emotions

January 9th might seem to be all about love at first. When young, these individuals will have significant platonic relationships with those they idealize greatly, and very often give in to a dreamy state of emotion that doesn’t allow them to ground it and give in to physical touch. If they don’t set clear boundaries on respect they require, frustration could build up as they chase the subject of their desire unaware of the humiliation they choose for themselves, out of belief in their image of love. As times go by, they learn where to seek self-respect and choose partners who are more suitable for their primal nature, searching for someone to blend into one with.

Those born on this date aren’t easy to be with, simply because they want things strict, exclusive, and expecting a lot. They will never settle for less than their dreamland pushes them towards, and fall in love rarely and with people who are there to help them build their own world up. Once they find the love of a lifetime, there is really nothing they aren’t prepared to do to hold on to the image of a dream, and this makes them open for all sorts of strange experiences through which they learn about their own limits.


January 9th is the first date of the year to come down to a two-digit number when numbers of the date and the month are combined. In a way, this makes their pathway through life a bit more complicated for their purpose comes in two different steps. The first one is to recognize who they are in their core, and the second is to embrace their duality, their shadows and their dark side, only to discover what needs to change in their approach to life. Once they transform, the effect of personal recognition will look like the transformation into a butterfly, but only if they are ready to face the world and get out of their cocoon all shiny, colorful and new.

What They Excel In

Artistic and deep, those born on January 9th are philosophers of sorts, great psychologists, life coaches, and past life regression therapists. They will never take an easy way out, not even when under a strong influence of Neptune, and need to find grounding and a self-image that is completely clear and true. Their focus must be set onto one specific point and they love to dig in, metaphorically and physically, this making them excellent scientists, physicists, archaeologists, and paleontologists.
