You are like a child to which every new experience is a wonder. The freshly sprouted flower, the ringing of lighthearted bells, a playful wind — it's the simple beauties that bring a smile to your face. Additionally you've got all that vital energy with which to spread carefree joy. The only drawback is that the world isn't always kind, gentle, or understanding. Cruelty is something you simply don't understand and it crushes your spirit. You have to find a way to safeguard your heart from that kind of damage.
Careers may prove difficult unless you can find a position that requires a lot of imagination. The internal landscape of today's Crab is rich with idealistic imagery. That imaginary world is a great escape, but it can also become a trap. It's so much easier to live in that space rather than the real world. The birth number 9 could encourage that tendency to retreat, especially when it seems like the dream is completely unobtainable. To counter that, positions that may provide an effective outlet include cartoonist, fiction author, and toy designer.
In love, you want to be the knight in shining armor or the damsel in distress. That fairy-tale ideal permeates interactions with friends, family, and potential life mates. In some ways that's charming, at least until the portrait doesn't hold up in day-to-day life. Any partner must understand this impractical romanticism and try to bring firmer foundations to the relationship for it to last.
