Were you born on January 9th? If so, then according to Western astrology, your zodiac sign is Capricorn, the sign of the Makara, or sea monster. This means that when you were born, the Sun was in the stars that make up the constellation known as Capricorn. Let's delve into the basics of your horoscope.

Capricorn Overview

Capricorn is known as मकर (Makara) in Sanskrit, which translates to "crocodile." Each sign of the zodiac is characterized by certain basic traits. Let's explore the general makeup of the Capricorn sign:

  • Sign of the Makara: Capricorn natives are peculiar and powerful. They possess great intelligence but often display a mean streak.
  • Ruled by Saturn: Saturn, the planet of karma, poverty, disease, austerity, and mysticism, governs Capricorn. Saturnine individuals are somber and mysterious.
  • An earth sign: Those with a Capricorn moon are grounded, thoughtful, and practical.
  • A movable sign: Persons born under this sign are fluid, spontaneous, and fond of change.
  • A feminine sign: Capricorn natives are receptive, sensitive, and empathetic.
  • Capricorn's preferred gemstone is blue sapphire: Capricorn can also benefit from blue spinel and amethyst.

Traits of the Sun in Capricorn

In Western Astrology, a person's sign is determined by the position of the Sun. If you were born on January 9th, you're considered a Capricorn according to most people in the Western world. The influence of the Sun in a birth chart will vary depending on other factors, but the following general traits are likely to be found in a native whose Sun is in Capricorn:

  • You are a natural businessperson: You are drawn to business, trade, and earning money. You excel in independent and competitive business environments. However, be cautious of unethical practices. By sharing a portion of your earnings with a good cause, you can reduce your tendency toward greed.
  • You like to be on the move: You have a love for travel, exploration, and experiencing new places. Your network extends to friends from foreign lands, and you may thrive in careers that require regular travel.
  • You have strong digestion: You enjoy eating and have a good metabolism, which contributes to your physical health. Ayurveda highlights the importance of digestion for overall well-being. Weak digestion leads to various diseases.
  • You may struggle to live up to your full potential: Despite having numerous ambitions and ideas, you often lack the motivation and willpower to see them through. Finding a mentor will help you channel your energies effectively and increase your chances of realizing your full potential.
  • You are likely to have a variety of professions in life: With diverse interests, you are prone to pursuing different careers throughout your life. Beware of abandoning good opportunities purely out of boredom. If needed, you can always take up a side job or hobby without sacrificing your financial stability.
