So first of all, let's see what 4th house and 9th house represent -
4th house represents your home, home environment, homeland, mother, nourishment, childhood friends, peace of mind, conveniences, intuition etc.
9th house represents Higher Education, Philosophy, Religion, Law, Faith, Fortune, Gurus, Teachings of Father (as father is 1st Guru we get) etc.
Now, what does it mean to have 9th house lord sitting in 4th house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 9th house of your horoscope is sitting in the 4th house of horoscope.
Now, what is the impact of having 9th house lord sitting in 4th house?
This planetary position simply shows a person for whom Mother has become his Guru. This person learns from Mother and within his home surroundings. This also shows someone getting peace of mind through higher education and religion. It also shows that Mother and Home Environment is very Religious. This also shows that home environment includes people of different ethnicity. Overall, it is a good placement and one of Raj Yoga as a Trikon Lord is sitting in Kendra House.
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 4th house lord as 9th house lord is going in 4th house. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 9th house Lord in 4th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Sagittarius Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 9th house with Leo sign and sits in the 4th house in the sign of Pisces. It shows someone is getting his confidence in life when he receives religious and spiritual education from his parents. As Sun represents Father, we need to consider both parents here. But as Sun loses its directional strength in 4th house, it shows that Father was absent in person's life and Mother had to take up role of Father too. Here, Mother becomes source of higher education. Person himself has a Spiritual Personality. At the same time, Sun burns the house it sits in. So although, Mother must have been a great support but still you have ego battles and arguments with her within home.
Moon - So it is Scorpio Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 9th house with Cancer sign and sits in 4th house in Aquarius. This time mother's role become all the more prominent as Moon itself represents Mother. As Aquarius is the sign related with Scientific thinking, it shows that you received higher education related to Science at your home. May be your Mother herself was a very Scientific person. It gives a Scientific Acumen. It also shows someone looking at religious matters through Scientific perspective. Peace of Mind is at home and with Mother.
Mars - Mars can be 9th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Leo Ascendant - So if it is Leo Ascendant, Mars rules 9th & 4th house and sits in 4th house in Scorpio sign. As Mars is in its own sign in 4th house, this is an extra-ordinary position for real estate. This person can get huge property. At the same time, he will be very protective towards his Mother and Home. Here, higher education may be in field of Occult and Mysticism. Person and Mother both will be highly courageous. Person will have transformative relations with his Gurus.
Pisces Ascendant - Now if it is Pisces Ascendant, Mars rules 2nd & 9th house and sits in 4th house in Gemini sign. Here things change a lot as Mars is in enemy sign. This shows a person who might be working in Security/Defense services for his homeland. This also shows someone who is a Lawyer as 9th house relates to Law and Mars represents Fighter. At the same time, this position gives a very direct or may even be a harsh speech. As Mars remains a malefic planet, this shows arguments and fights taking place in home with Mother or Brothers.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 9th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Libra Ascendant - If it is Libra Ascendant, Mercury rules 9th & 12th houses and sits in 4th house in Capricorn. This is another position which can create a Lawyer. 9th house is Law, Mercury is Counselling, Capricorn is Law & Order. So, it certainly shows a Lawyer working from the privacy of home or office. This shows a person who talks very less but talks to the point. They are very concise in their speech but very effective. They can write for a long time and can be excellent Advisers.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, then Mercury rules 6th and 9th house and sits in 4th house in Aries. This shows almost similar things but here person becomes a very direct counselor. This person will never sugarcoat things to make you feel happy. They apply their ability to analysis in religion or legal studies and then work as a counselor. Both positions give a communicative environment at home but as I said, here communications are very direct and to the point.
Venus - Venus also can be 9th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Virgo Ascendant - If it is Virgo Ascendant, Venus rules 9th & 2nd house and sits in 4th house in Sagittarius sign. This shows someone who loves to discuss about higher learning, philosophy, different religions with his mother in home. This gives beautiful relation with Mother. Venus in Sagittarius means this person can be impressed only by way of an enlightened discussion. They seek love in knowledge of person. For a guy, this shows wife may be of different ethnicity.
Aquarius Ascendant - If it is Aquarius Ascendant, Venus rules 4th & 9th house and sits in 4th house in Taurus. This is much better position as Venus is in own sign. This shows a person, specially a guy, getting married to someone from different ethnicity and spouse bringing lots of wealth and luck into home. This position gives a beautiful home and pleasant relation with mother. Mother and Spouse become source of luck.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 9th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Aries Ascendant - If it is Aries Ascendant, Jupiter rules 9th & 12th house and sits in 4th house in Cancer Sign, where it is exalted. This is the best position among all. This shows a highly religious person and home environment. This position gives a huge home and good real estate properties. This shows a very religious mother. This shows a person who wants to attain the highest level of education, either academic or religious/philosophical. This also shows that wealth is coming in life from people of different ethnicity. For a girl, husband will be of different ethnicity. Overall, a great position.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, Jupiter rules 6th & 9th house and sits in 4th house in Libra. This is an average position. This shows person having a balanced relationship with his mother. A person who likes to take education about different religions and philosophies and likes to find a balance between them. Other results can be as above but impact will be lesser as Jupiter is not exalted here.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 9th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 9th house lord, Saturn in 4th house (for Gemini/Taurus Ascendants respectively) shows that Mother was strict and disciplined lady. There was an Army like environment at home. If Saturn is in Libra, where it is exalted, for Cancer Ascendant then things may be 5% mild, but nothing more than that. It gives a distant or stressful relation from Mother, where both sides want to pull each other on their way. Higher Education and Gurus don't come easy in life. In early life, they get very strict Gurus, that's why these people run away from education early in life. They may even be taken away from home and mother in early life. Things improve with home, education and mother after mid 30s when Saturn matures.
Rahu - If Rahu is 9th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 4th house in Virgo then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Virgo in 4th house will transform Rahu as Mercury 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 Virgo in 4th house shows a weird relation with Mother. It can be any type of unusual-ness, like Mother can be a foreigner, Mother can be a Foster one etc. Home environment is very unusual, may be person has home in foreign lands. As Rahu remains the most malefic planet, it certainly shows some weird or unusual events happening inside home. Rahu in Virgo means this person is obsessed for analytical studies of different religion and philosophies, which create conflict.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 9th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 4th house in Gemini 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 as Ketu is in 4th house the relation with mother goes for a real toss. These people are either physically separated from their mother or they feel a mental separation always. They always feel that their mother is unable to understand their point of view or vice versa. They feel that their mother was unfair to them. They may not buy a property in their own name if they want to reside in it. At the same time, this position gives high intuition powers. This position is one of Moksha Margi position, means these people can get enlightenment and liberation if they make effort. Ketu in Gemini means that person is not too communicative. They don't like to talk much. Or when they talk, they talk of such high Spiritual concepts that people are unable to understand.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
