So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 6th house Lord in 9th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Pisces Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 6th house with Leo sign and sits in 9th house in Scorpio. As Scorpio is a sign of transformation, it shows a transformative relation with Father. As Sun is karaka of Health, Career and Father, it shows that obstruction in higher education can come because of either of these things/people. At the same time, it gives great inclination towards reading about Religion, Philosophy and Mysticism. This person or his Father may be in a job that requires a lot of travelling.
Moon - So it is Aquarius Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 6th house with Cancer sign and sits in 9th house in Libra Sign. Here, person's balance of mind comes when they educate themselves about health care. It means they are inclined to take higher education in health care field. It also shows that they go to a far distant place to live with people of different ethnicity and heal people there. It also shows that their mother may be travelling a lot to distant places which makes them feel lack of nourishment from mother.
Mars - Mars can be 6th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Scorpio Ascendant - So if it is Scorpio Ascendant, Mars rules 6th & 1st house and sits in 9th house in Cancer, where it is debilitated. If it is near to the actual degrees of debilitation, it shows that person gets continuous dispute with his teachers. Matters of Higher Education face obstacles. Dispute may even lead to physical fights. This shows that person gets into disputes or diseases whenever he travels long distance for work purpose. Disputes can even occur due to religious beliefs or fundamentalist nature related to those beliefs. Another yoga or dasha can change the results completely.
Gemini Ascendant - Now if it is Gemini Ascendant, Mars rules 6th & 11th house and sits in 9th house in Aquarius sign. This clearly shows a person who travels to far distant places for his work in large organisation. His daily routine work will involve the association of people of different ethnicity. Here Mars' energy may go into doing research over different religions & philosophies for the purpose of reaching a conclusion which is beneficial to all.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 6th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, Mercury rules 6th & 9th houses and sits in 9th house in Virgo, where it is exalted. Clearly shows a person who takes on the higher studies related to accounting, auditing or mathematics which helps in his daily routines. For such purposes, they travel to far distant places, may be their college is far from hometown. Mercury in 9th house surely shows someone who travels a lot and as Mercury is exalted all the travels and higher learning will be beneficial. In matters of religion and philosophy, they will be very analytical and critical. It means they will read about a religion and take out all the good points and bad points of that religion, and then analyse it.
Aries Ascendant - If it is Aries Ascendant, then Mercury rules 6th & 3rd house and sits in 9th house in Sagittarius. This Mercury loves to travel to far distant places. Most of the travelling is due to work. Here, curiosity of Mercury will be regarding travelling, meeting people of different ethnicity and knowing their culture. They love collecting information about different religions, cultures and philosophies. Only difference is that this Mercury may not be as analytical as the earlier one and would only be interested in collecting information.
Venus - Venus also can be 6th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Sagittarius Ascendant - If it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Venus rules 6th & 11th house and sits in 9th house in Leo sign. Wherever Venus is, there is your love. This shows someone's love for travelling. Again, travelling may be because of work. For a guy, it shows that his wife may be from different culture. People may find their love interests when they go on to travelling. Venus in Leo gives a natural love towards a lavish life style. These people love living a Royal Life. Even if they are going out for break-fast, then also they want to go to the most expensive place in the city.
Taurus Ascendant - If it is Taurus Ascendant, Venus rules 6th & 1st house and sits in 9th house in Capricorn. Almost same things can be seen from this position. Additionally, they have love for Authority. They get inclined towards people who are in authority. It is not necessarily a Govt position but authority in any field. Like 9th house Capricorn can even show authority in fields of Religion, Law and Philosophy. So, they may be inclined towards any such person.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 6th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, Jupiter rules 6th & 9th house and sits in 9th house in Pisces Sign. This shows someone who is highly spiritual and learned person and who deals with all the disputes and obstacles in his life through his wisdom. They have all the knowledge of religions and philosophies and they have gone beyond to realize worthlessness of all religions and philosophies. They are in true sense Spiritual People, beyond any limit of any religion.
Libra Ascendant - If it is Libra Ascendant, Jupiter rules 3rd & 6th house and sits in 9th house in Gemini. This shows a person who loves collecting information about different religions and philosophies and then he preaches those to others. So, this person is more in category of religious or philosopher and can be seen in College/University as Professor but he is not Spiritual. He is good at collecting info and preaching to others to settle his disputes but won't be able to stand in any debate over same info.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 6th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 6th house lord, Saturn in 9th house (for Leo/Virgo Ascendants respectively) shows a person who gets higher knowledge with delay in life. In their 1st half of life, there will be huge obstacles of loans, diseases or disputes in the way of their higher education. 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. 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.
Rahu - If Rahu is 6th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 9th house in Taurus then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Taurus in 9th house will transform Rahu as Venus as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. So, it will become much like Venus in 9th house as discussed above but at the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Taurus in 9th house shows a person who gains lots of wealth and assets in foreign lands or far distant places. They have natural love for luxuries of life and with time they also get it. Their travel to foreign land is due to work related issues of large organizations but it is going to be hugely beneficial because Rahu is considered as exalted in Taurus. They get all the material success but away from home land.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 6th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 9th house in Aquarius 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 the concept of working in Large Organizations and MNCs. If they are working in such places, they will always feel where they landed all of sudden. It also 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.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
