Today, 9th house lord sitting in 6th house.
So first of all, let's see what 6th house and 9th house represent -
6th house is 1st of Dushthana Houses (houses # 6, 8 and 12) and 2nd of Upachaya Houses (houses # 3, 6, 10 & 11). 6th house represents things like diseases, debts, obstacles, enemies, disputes, competitions, litigations, under privileged people, pets, daily routine life, colleagues at work place etc. One thing to remember here is that it is one of Upachaya Houses, i.e. House # 3, 6, 10 & 11. Upachaya Houses improve with time. It means any planet in these houses improves in results with age and real good result is seen from a person's 30s. Also, all the malefic planets provide very good results in Upachaya Houses but results may be seen in 30s.
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 6th house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 9th house of your horoscope is sitting in the 6th house of horoscope.
Now, what is the impact of having 9th house lord sitting in 6th house?
As planet that controls the house of higher education is going into the house of Disputes, Diseases and Competition, it shows that these people like to get Education in these fields. So, it shows someone doing higher education of Law, Medicine or Sports. We can say these fields become their Dharma. This person can be in Finance field too as 6th house relates to Debts and Loans. It may also suggest that someone has to take loans for his higher education. It may even show, with involvement of malefic planets, that person's higher education was blocked for sometime. Person may have conflicts with his Gurus. It shows a very religious person in his daily routine life.
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 6th house lord as 9th house lord is going in 6th house. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 9th house Lord in 6th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Sagittarius Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 9th house with Leo sign and sits in the 6th house in the sign of Taurus. As Taurus is sign of Wealth and Assets, it shows that person has taken higher education in the field of Finance. Person may be working with a Finance and Debt related daily work, either in Govt or Pvt Sector but in Authoritative Position. In his daily routine work, he would show off his ego and authority over his colleagues, which may result in his bad image. Father may be working in similar field too.
Moon - So it is Scorpio Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 9th house with Cancer sign and sits in 6th house in Aries. This shows someone who is very action oriented in the field of Health Care. They get higher education in the field of Healing. They are emotionally involved in healing people and they will do everything to take care of others. Their mind is into taking care of others and serving others.
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 6th house in Capricorn sign, where it is exalted. As Mars is a natural athlete and 6th house is Competition, it shows a great sportsperson. A chart on top of my head with this position is of Sachin Tendulkar (http://astrosaxena.com/stendulkar). It is clear they have the strongest of will power to compete with others. Besides that, they can become good Govt Enployees, more so in field related with Defense and Security.
Pisces Ascendant - Now if it is Pisces Ascendant, Mars rules 2nd & 9th house and sits in 6th house in Leo sign. This shows almost similar results as Mars is in the sign of Leo, which again represents Govt as it is ruled by Sun. So, again great sports persons, athletes and Govt Employees can be seen from this. As Mars is fighter, 9th house is law and 6th house is disputes, it shows very good lawyers but these will be Govt Lawyers as, in both places, Mars is in Govt related sign. A highly courageous person.
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 6h house in Pisces, where it is debilitated. Mercury being a communicator/counselor, ruling 9th house of religion & philosophy and sits in sign of Spirituality, clearly shows a person who is working with people as counselor and counsels people on religious/philosophical/spiritual grounds and try to resolve their conflicts. These people can be seen as best Spiritual Teachers. They resolve conflicts of people through Spirituality.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, then Mercury rules 6th and 9th house and sits in 6th house in Gemini. As Mercury is in own sign, this shows not only a counselor but an activist, author who serves people through writing. They can be Lawyers or Activists like RTI Activists. They can write blogs/novels related to under-privileged people and by doing that they bring forth the problems of those people. They serve through Communications and Counselling.
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 6th house in Aquarius sign. These people love to travel far distant places. Besides that, Venus represents Service and Devotion, so these people love to serve others with true devotion. They can be seen as people who take care of down trodden people and for that purpose they even go to far distant places. A natural love towards animals is also seen here. They can be activists for Animal Rights too.
Aquarius Ascendant - If it is Aquarius Ascendant, Venus rules 4th & 9th house and sits in 6th house in Cancer. These are natural and motherly caretakers. They are born to take care of others and serve those who are in problem. They find God through Service. In both positions of Venus, a guy may marry someone who is in healing field.
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 6th house in Virgo Sign. This is a person who wants to attain higher education in matters of either Medicine or Law. As Jupiter, 6th house and Virgo represents both these professions, it is hard to pin-point on one profession from this single position and hence, we need to check other placements in chart to find out exact career. They can also be teacher in these fields like Law and Medicine.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, Jupiter rules 6th & 9th house and sits in 6th house in Sagittarius. This shows a very Religious and Spiritual person as Jupiter and both signs involved are related with Religion and Spirituality. So, they can be seen as Religious/Spiritual Counselors in Society who resolve the conflicts and problems of people through counselling. Sagittarius is sign of Law, so this placement can also make a Lawyer or Teacher in Law.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 9th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 9th house lord, Saturn in 6th house (for Gemini/Taurus Ascendants respectively) again shows a person who is in Health-Care field or Law field. As Saturn itself represents illness and 6th house is diseases too, Saturn in 6th house normally creates a doctor. Another Career it can give is Lawyer if it gets connected with 10th house along with 6th house. For Gemini Ascendant, profession of doctor becomes a bigger possibility as Saturn will be in Scorpio and Scorpio is also sign of Surgery. If Saturn is in Libra for Taurus Ascendant then certainly a great career in Law as Saturn is exalted in Libra, a sign of Justice. This can even make a person a Judge. Saturn in 6th house is ind of best placement for Saturn as it impacts all the Dushthana Houses, i.e. 6th, 8th and 12th house and hence limits the results of these houses.
Rahu - If Rahu is 9th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 6th house in Scorpio then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Scorpio in 6th house will transform Rahu as Mars 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 Scorpio in 6th house shows that they are obsessed with Occult and Mysticism. Their daily work routine is full of sudden and chaotic events. May be they work in such a work environment which requires night shifts or working in unimaginable conditions. As Rahu represents Drugs, Scorpio Surgery and Rahu being the 9th house lord, it shows that they will get into higher education of Surgeries and thereby healing people. As Rahu is obsession and seek perfection, they can become great surgeons.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 9th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 6th house in Leo 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 as to where he is serving. It means these people are blind as to where they are working, if they are getting enough return/salary/bonus for their work. They just want to mechanically work without any thought of getting into office politics and other things. Hence, it so happens that they may not get their deserving dues in jobs. It also separates them from concepts of Competition. They are the last people who want to get into any dispute. They live a healthy life, as they are also separated from Diseases. As Ketu is in Leo, it shows that they are not much about wielding their ego and authority in front of others.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
