Ninth House

Signification of Ninth House

9th House

The ninth House refers to philosophy, religion, law, learning, teaching (as opposition early education by the third House), ethics, morals, long journeys, travel, foreign countries and interests, religious urges, dreams, visions, higher mind, ideas, understanding and knowledge, books, publishing, ceremonies, and rituals. this is often the House of massive thoughts and large concepts.

9th house “understanding” is additional complicated than third house “knowledge”. The act of “knowing” belongs to the third house as a result of it implies merely the direct contact of someone with one thing in his setting. Understanding involves the synthesis of noted information.

While the third house refers to somebody’s have to be compelled to perceive his shut and private setting, the ninth home is a district {in that during that within which} one seeks to find the importance of larger fields of social existence which one might not expertise directly however which his mind could explore through the utilization of analogy, generalization and abstraction. The third and ninth homes symbolize the two polarities of the human mind, the concrete and also the abstract.

In summary, the ninth house includes experiences that we tend to encounter once we look for the means of things. No matter expands your field of activity or the scope of your mind – long journeys, contact with alternative cultures, nice dreams, and even experiences with fortunetellers.

  1. This house refers to the following:

   (i)         Guru.

   (ii)        Father.

   (iii)       Auspicious occasions, good deeds, dips in holy riv­ers, and visits to shrines. Charity. Worship, dharma, religion, intuition, Frarabdha (part of accumulated karmas of the past lives the good or bad results of which have to be experienced in this life), penance, spiritual initiation, dream, next world, providential help, and past births.

   (iv)       Badhakasthan for ascendants having fixed signs.

   (v)        Fortune. General prosperity. Sudden and unexpected gains. Rewards for one’s efforts. Favours from the govt.

   (vi)       Hips, groin, lower vertebrae and upper legs. Left cheek, left part of the heart and left knee according to the drekkan rising.

   (vii)      Efforts for acquisition of learning, highest levels of knowledge, research, invention, discovery, law, judges, philosophy, medicine, publications of works of substantial and of more lasting nature than those covered by the third house which are of ephemeral nature like news.

   (viii)     Long journeys and communications to far off places, foreigners, emigration and immigration.

   (ix)       Mother’s servant. Younger brother’s/sister’s spouse. Friends of elder brother /sister.

   (x)        (a)        Predictions can be made with regard to the father of the native by taking the ninth house as the first house in the horoscope of the native. The house second from the ninth (i. e., the tenth house) will tell about the wealth of the father, the third about his brothers, the fourth about his mother and comforts, and so on.

               (b)        A similar analysis can be attempted by taking the house where the Sun or the Pitrukaraka (see paragraph 3 in opening remarks of Chapter Two) is located, as the first house for the father.

               (c)        See paragraph 5 of opening remarks of Chapter on Planets also.

  1. Being seventh from the third house it is complimentary to the third house and therefore should also be examined for younger brothers/sisters,
  2. If there is a link between the first and the ninth houses the native becomes fortunate and religious. Take the house in which the Moon is situated as the first house. We call this house the Moon ascendant. We define the Sun ascendant similarly. If the yoga is true simultaneously for the Sun and the Moon ascendants also, the above result can be taken as confirmed. The element of spiritualism in this yoga gets a boost if Saturn simultaneously influences the fourth house, its owner and the Moon as it will make the native dispassionate.
  3. The fifth house represents devotion and the ninth religious­ness. Jupiter is the karaka for religion. A person will be religious if:

   (i)         The fifth and the ninth houses and Jupiter are strong, or

   (ii)        (a)        Jupiter is strongly placed in the first, third, fifth or the ninth house, or

               (b)        Jupiter is in the same sign as the Moon, or

               (c)        Jupiter aspects the fifth or the ninth house or both as counted from the sign occupied by the Moon.

               (d)        Jupiter is not an adverse planet for the chart and influences the fourth house or the Moon.

   (iii)       Saturn is not an adverse planet for the chart and influences the fourth house or the Moon,

  1. If the owner of this house is powerful it indicates divine assistance and sudden gain. The form that this assistance will take will depend upon the house in which the owner is located. For example if the owner is in the tenth house the native will get ruling powers or help from the government and its employees through chance, coincidence or luck. If it is in the fourth house he will so get conveyances etc. or assistance from the mother.
  2. If there is a debilitated planet in this house or if its owner is debilitated or combust, it makes the native a hypocrite in religious matters.
  3. If this house is strong there is a possibility of sudden and pleasant gains. If Mercury is the owner of such a strong ninth house, the possibility of such gains becomes very strong as this planet has a similar effect. If a strong ninth house owned by Mercury is tenanted by Rahu or Ketu this result is bound to occur because in such a situation all the elements that govern sudden gains will be influencing this house. Similar will be the result if Mercury joins or is aspected by a lunar node here.
  4. A person would like to keep exalted and spiritual company if the owners of the first and the third houses are connected with this house.
  5. This house is fifth from the fifth house. Therefore when considering matters pertaining to children this house has also to be examined.
  6. The probable years in the life of a native can be fixed from the owner of this house in which the native may gain well and fortune may smile on him. Following is the tentative age which may prove fortunate for the native, to be deduced from the owner of the sign in which the owner of the ninth is located. The owner of the sign should be powerful and free from affliction:

   The              owner of the Sign                       Years of age

   (i)                 The Sun                                     22

   (ii)                The Moon                                  24

   (iii)               Mars                                           28

   (iv)               Mercury                                     32

   (v)                Jupiter                                        16, 32, 42, 50

   (vi)               Venus                                        25

   (vii)              Saturn                                        26, 36, 42

  1. (i) The rules for determining the relationship between the native and a relative of his are recorded in paragraph 32 under FIRST HOUSE in Chapter Four. If we wish to determine the relations that are likely to exist between the native and his father, we should apply these rules to the ninth house.

   (ii)        (a)        If the sign placed in the sixth, eighth or the twelfth house in the horoscope of the native becomes the ascendant sign in the horoscope of his son/daughter, the relations between the two will not be cordial.

   (b)        On the other hand if the sign in the ascendant of the son/daughter of the native is one that is placed in the second, third, fifth, ninth or the eleventh house of the native, the relations be­tween the two will be good.

   (c)        If the sign in the tenth house of the native is placed in the ascendant of the native’s son! daughter, the latter shall be abler and more talented than the native. In fact this principle could be applied to any two charts provided the sign involved is strong in the chart when placed in the first house.
