Today, 10th house lord sitting in 9th house.
So first of all, let's see what 9th house and 10th house represent -
9th house represents Higher Education, Philosophy, Religion, Law, Faith, Fortune, Gurus, Teachings of Father (as father is 1st Guru we get) etc.
10th house represents things like Government, Father, Authority, Fame, Work Environment etc. Here, Authority should not be understood in literal sense, like someone got a Government job or became a Manager or CEO of a Firm. Here Authority means doing any work with complete perfection and your opinion matters when comes to making any decision related to that work, so even a good Hacker can be a person of authority as he is master of that particular work. 10th house is one of the houses normally checked for Career/Work/Duty in Life.
Now, what does it mean to have 10th house lord sitting in 9th house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 10th house of your horoscope is sitting in the 9th house of horoscope.
Now, what is the impact of having 10th house lord sitting in 9th house?
One of the common interpretation of this position is that your work/career wants you to take higher education, then only it will prosper. So, there are some people who can continue with their basic education in their jobs till they retire, but here you are supposed to update your knowledge timely to prosper your work. This also shows that a person travels a lot for work and stays with people of different ethnicity for work. One of the common profession here is Law or Academics. Another profession here is related with Religion & Faith. Here, your father becomes your Guru and guides you in Career. If malefic planets in wrong dignity are involved and person goes through its dasha and relevant transits too, then it shows that person will have continuous loss of career and his career will only prosper in far distant places and among people of different ethnicity.
Now, results may be different due to aspect, conjunctions of other planets or the planet being Retrograde or Combust. Moreover, now we also need to check the strength of 9th house lord as 10th house lord is going in 9th house. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 10th house Lord in 9th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Scorpio Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 10th house with Leo sign and sits in the 9th house in the sign of Cancer. It shows that person is in any career related with Law or Govt as Sun is Govt, Cancer is Local Govt and 9th house is Law. So, a person can be a Govt Lawyer. Here, person may follow father's guidance in matters of Career, as Sun is in the house of Gurus. Here, Personality, Ego and Authority of person develops with the higher education he gets involved with. Person will be emotionally attached with his Father, Gurus, Religion, Faith and Higher Education.
Moon - So it is Libra Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 10th house with Cancer sign and sits in 9th house in Gemini sign. This shows a very Business Savvy mind. As Gemini is sign of Communication, Skills and Business, these people are very skillful. Thousands of business ideas are jumping around in mind at same time. They are prolific writers. They will do well in writing and publishing their views and ideas as Gemini is sign of Communication and 9th house is house of Publishing. They can be great counselors/teachers too in religious and philosophical matters.
Mars - Mars can be 10th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Cancer Ascendant - So if it is Cancer Ascendant, Mars rules 10th & 5th house and sits in 9th house in Pisces sign. This shows a person who can motivate people with his religious, philosophical views. This shows a great motivational speaker or a writer. They can motivate people to take action as per their philosophical, religious and spiritual views. This also indicates a sports coach or a soldier who goes to a far distant place to play/defend for the country.
Aquarius Ascendant - Now if it is Aquarius Ascendant, Mars rules 3rd & 10th house and sits in 9th house in Libra sign. Here, Mars is not a friendly sign. So, this shows person will have constant dominance struggle with either his Gurus or Father regarding the values and beliefs they want to impose. He will feel that he has better belief system than them. If further malefic impact is there then person has fundamental and rigid religious views and for that he is willing to fight with anyone. It also shows someone might take up the profession of Law and fight for making things balanced (Libra way).
Mercury - Mercury also can be 10th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Virgo Ascendant - If it is Virgo Ascendant, Mercury rules 10th & 1st houses and sits in 9th house in Taurus. Mercury in 9th house is all about travelling for work. Mercury is travelling, 9th house is log distance travels. So, these people can earn their Wealth through travelling only, because Mercury is in sign of Taurus, which represents Wealth. It also shows someone travelling to a far distant place to get higher education about Finance which may be helpful in Career.
Sagittarius Ascendant - If it is Sagittarius Ascendant, then Mercury rules 7th and 10th house and sits in 9th house in Leo. This shows someone who is working with Govt at a far distant place in field of communication. So, it can show some Govt Spokesperson working in Embassies at different countries. With both positions of Mercury, a person can be a very good writer on religious and philosophical matters. They can earn through writing and publishing.
Venus - Venus also can be 10th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Leo Ascendant - If it is Leo Ascendant, Venus rules 10th & 3rd house and sits in 9th house in Aries sign. Venus in 9th house gives a natural love for travelling and meeting people of different cultures. This shows a person going to a far distant place for the purpose of his work and gets into a relation with someone of different culture there. As Venus is in Aries sign, this person will assert his individuality and ego in career through his higher education. In relationship also, they will prefer to have an individualistic approach. Venus in 9th house gives a natural love towards reading religious/philosophical texts.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, Venus rules 5th & 10th house and sits in 9th house in Virgo, where it is debilitated. If Venus is nearby its exact degree of debilitation, then it shows person getting into a relation with someone at work place, which leads to loss of wealth and career. The reason why Mercury & Venus debilitation don't hurt much is that in 90% cases, they are together, creating a Neech Bhang Raj Yoga, i.e. taking away negative impacts of their debilitation. But one result which Venus debilitated in 9th house will still give is that person will spend a lot on travelling, rituals and reading things of higher knowledge, religion and philosophy. So, when benefic planets get debilitated, they still give some good results with their debilitation.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 10th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Pisces Ascendant - If it is Pisces Ascendant, Jupiter rules 10th & 1st house and sits in 9th house in Scorpio Sign. This shows a person who is into higher education of occult, mysticism and any type of hidden knowledge. These people can be great Counselors, Astrologers and Occultists. They can be teaching Occult too. This shows a person who wants to make his career in religion, philosophy, higher learning and occult.
Gemini Ascendant - If it is Gemini Ascendant, Jupiter rules 7th & 10th house and sits in 9th house in Aquarius. This shows someone going to a far distant place to work in a large organization. They may be working in Scientific or Finance related work. They are seen as guide or mentor to their organization or team. As Jupiter also represents Wealth, it shows your wealth is coming from Large Organizations, Scientific Research or Humanitarian Works.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 10th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 10th house lord, Saturn in 9th house (for Aries/Taurus Ascendants respectively) surely indicates Higher Learning or Guru will come with delay in life. Till then, they will be just finding Gurus, who are just too strict and who wants them to follow some stringent rules and regulations. They will have doubts and criticism towards their Gurus. They can ask about genuineness of even a Spiritual Guru. It is very hard for them to find a real guru in 1st part of life. This can also delay their higher education in 1st part of life. Access to far distant land may be blocked till mid life. But as always with Saturn, after attaining 30, they are more open towards developing a right belief system. At right time, they also get the right Guru and they find the true knowledge. Then they will find Gurus who show other nature of Saturn, i.e. Old and Wise. Long Distance travel will come late in life but when they travel, they will travel for a long time. Career wise, Law is the best option for them.
Rahu - If Rahu is 10th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 9th house in Capricorn then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Capricorn in 9th house will transform Rahu as Saturn as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. At the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Capricorn in 9th house basically shows a person who has weird and unusual views about religion. They will ask who wrote these Holy Books, and if these are written by Humans then how it can be word of God. They will look for reasoning for everything. Career will be in Authority position in some Large Organization or they would be working for some philosophical or religious organization.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 10th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 9th house in Libra then 1st of all we need to make sure of Mars' position as it is the main ruler. As Ketu isolates/separates a person from the things related to the house Ketu is sitting, here it separates person from his Gurus and Higher Learning, means this person will always find Gurus who are in disagreement with native. There is never a connect between the two. Native thinks that real knowledge of religion and philosophy is something else then what is taught to him by his Gurus. He always feels that his teachers are below par. At the same time, this gives immense research ability on 9th house matters and occult/mysticism. So, they learn on their own. Throughout life, they seek a balanced relation with their Gurus.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
