People with a Sun Number 9 are idealists. There is a global consciousness that drives many with a 9 Sun Number to a career in politics, the military or law enforcement. They can be aloof and distant, but that is a form of self-defense, because they are often not very good with emotional issues, preferring a more clinical and objective approach.
9s like things to be well thought out, carefully strategized, and all possibilities considered, however, they have no problem adjusting to changing circumstances. This makes a 9 very capable as a long-term planner or advisor. Sun Number 9s are good at running an institution or team, yet they are not naturally good at the nitty gritty details of business finances and taxes.
A Sun Number 9 does best when they are involved with a venture they consider bigger than themselves. It’s important to a 9 to feel they have made their life count, and it sometimes can result in a slightly arrogant, self-righteous or the holier-than-thou syndrome.
Successful Sun Number 9s will learn to accept people for who they are, not expect them to change according to their expectations. People tend to either love a 9 or loathe a 9 ... there are few in between.
When it comes to love, the 9 Sun Number is perhaps the most difficult Sun Number to get close to. The 9 can seem distant, not often one to display emotion. In order to get involved in a romantic relationship, it is usually the 9 who has to reach out, as others tend to be both intimidated and unsure.
On the other hand, once a relationship is established, the 9 can be a joy to be around. They are considerate, careful and generous. They don't ask for much, and are easily pleased. They are tolerant and forgiving, and give a partner all the space and freedom he or she needs to live his or her own life. The often aloof 9 is surprisingly sensual, and loves to be intimate. The 1, 2, 3, 6, 7 and 8 are its most suitable partners.
