Dhanush is the 9th Sign of the Hindu Zodiac. Truth seekers, adventurers, lovers of travel (and their own selves), these individuals are fun-loving and a good company. Many of them are philosophic in bent, and their spirit of inquiry is practically relentless and endless. Restless, curious and always ready to explore, sometimes they may end up being too upfront and garrulous. Given their quest for truth and ultimate wisdom, most of them do not take things at their face value.
They are usually tall and have thick hair. They have shining eyes which make them very attractive. Their voice is also very pleasing. Their hands tend to be longer than their trunks. Their nose is usually big, as are their top-row teeth. Their appearance happy, and their sense of dress is casual but they dress as per the occasion.
They are symbolized by a Centaur with the top part being of a human and the lower part being of a horse. They thus have both the good and bad instincts. The human part which has a bow and arrow pointing upwards, suggests that they have a spiritual nature. It also suggests that they are very positive and try to look at the brighter side of life, never getting bogged down by any kind of difficulties. On the other hand, they can be quite rude and may reject the best of advice. They are very active and love open spaces and outdoor activities. They take interest in all sorts of games and physical activities. They are sympathetic and sincere; always making an effort to fix problems of their loved ones. Although they are very active, it can sometimes show up as restlessness.
As a Lover, they are jovial and love to have fun with their partner. Sensual, open-hearted, and willing to experiment with anything, people who are equally extroverted make good partners for them. There is a fine line between love and sex for this Sign. And when it comes to love, after they commit themselves, they are totally loyal and devoted. Partners for this Sign need to be intellectual, sensitive, and expressive.
As a friend, they are very encouraging, inspiring and generous. They are jovial and spread joy and laughter in their friend circles. They make very loyal friends and will nurture the relationship till the very end.

Their hips, thighs, stomach, and feet are also susceptible. They should avoid drinking too much, or have a heavy diet. If they can maintain a good lifestyle, they can avoid blood pressure problems or disorders of the liver. They may also experience some problems of sciatica or torn ligament in the thighs. They should drive carefully to avoid accidents.
They think twice before going out of their way to achieving their goals. Moreover, people enjoy working with them as they keep the work environment lively with their wit and sense of humor. However, they don’t take work lightly, no matter how difficult a challenge might be, they will never give up until the end. They can be very inspiring leaders, especially when the team-moral is quite low.
Professions which require extensive travel generally attract them, as they love to meet and explore new people and cultures. It is no surprise, that they make good travel writers or travel guides.
