Personality Traits & Characteristics of Famous People Born on February 9

Personality
February 9 Aquarians are known to be different and more eclectic than other astrological signs, maybe even more than other Aquarians born closer to the beginning or end of the Aquarius cycle. They live by their own rules and march to the beat of a different drummer. When faced with a difficult choice, these individuals may ask the opinion of others; but it’s quite likely that they may not follow their advice, they just want to see the other point of view. They put their all into anything that they really believe in and, if they meet with failure, they are not discouraged. Instead, they learn from the mistake and keep moving forward.

Health
February 9 natives have a tendency to be more health conscious than others, however, that does that mean that they are healthier than others. They often fall to temptations of chocolates, sweets and other fattening foods.

Finance
Aquarius may be one of the most independent minded of all the zodiacs signs. Aquarians have been known to choose to live poorly rather than to accept handouts. That being said, February 9 Aquarians are particularly good with saving money and stretching a dollar.

Career
While an Aquarius has a strong work ethic, the motto that they live by is to “work smarter, not harder.” They may find it challenging to perform menial tasks that they find to be boring.

Relationships, Marriage and Children
Anyone looking to have a relationship with an Aquarius may be in for a ride. It can be tough to form a relationship with a February 9 Aquarian because they have a guarded soul. They are not known for being emotionally charged and it is rare that they open up their inner feelings to someone they do not know well. Some may mistake their indifferent attitude as not caring about other people but that is not the case; they just approach situations from a logical standpoint, not from the emotional side. Family is very important to these individuals and they will put the needs of their spouse and children above their own.
