The people born on January 17th are known for their perceptiveness, intelligence and creative skills. Ruled by the planet of Saturn, they are extremely inspired individuals who are persistent with whatever goals they pursue.

Owing to their innovative ideas and hardworking nature, these people achieve great heights in their life. Decisive and independent, people born on this day are also very charismatic; however, at times they can be a tad obstinate and tend to keep all their problems to themselves. They rely more on their intuition and push themselves as hard as they can to prove their capabilities.
