The 9 is attracted by the gentleness, calm, wisdom, insight, ingenuity and reliability of 5. Both are open minded, thoughtful, patient, tolerant enough and know how to appreciate the simplicity of life. The touching skill of 9 to merge smoothly, helps the 5, who feels empty inside. They both value stability and can form a comforting and harmonious relationship.
