Now, what is the impact of having 9th house lord sitting in 7th house?
This position brings a unique situation where it can be good or bad depending on the dignity and nature of planet. This looks like a great Raj Yoga position as Trikon lord is in Kendra, but this is also a Badhakesh position (http://astrosaxena.com/badhakesh) where person's belief may spoil his marriage or he is too much involved in Business that he doesn't get a chance of completing his higher education or even if he gets higher education, it doesn't help him as he is full-time into Business. At the same time, if person is Lawyer, Religious Preacher, Teacher/Counsellor or has taken Business Education then it is of use as in all these professions you deal with other people through your education. On the relationship side, this position shows that you marry a person of different ethnicity and belief system. As your luck of 9th house is going into 7th house, it shows someone who brings luck to spouse. It also shows that religion and religious discussion may be part of your daily life in marriage. This also shows that spouse is highly educated and religious.
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 7th house lord as 9th house lord is going in 7th house. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 9th house Lord in 7th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Sagittarius Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 9th house with Leo sign and sits in the 7th house in the sign of Gemini. This shows that person brings lots of ego in relationship and marriage. Ego is related to the Beliefs and Religious Views. Person egotistically affirms that his belief system is better than his spouse and spouse needs to obey them. This may lead to ego battles and eventual split in relation. Person's father becomes a trouble maker in relation. Relation can sustain on the base of constant harmonious communications between partners. Career wise, it can make someone a lawyer.
Moon - So it is Scorpio Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 9th house with Cancer sign and sits in 7th house in Taurus, where it is exalted. This is where it gives results of Raj Yoga as benefic Moon is exalted here. This position gives a mindset where person is ready to cooperate and adjust with the different religious views of spouse. Here, both spouse live in complete harmony. Native finds peace of mind when he is into relationship or dealing with other people. This position gives a spouse who is very motherly as Moon is exalted.
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 7th house in Aquarius sign. This person needs to take care that he doesn't get too much involved in his religious beliefs else he may end up in having arguments or even physical fights with spouse or other people. This shows someone who is very hardcore about his religious views and likes to dominate other's views. So, these people may like to take care regarding dominating others through their views. Marriage may be delayed and person may marry someone who is also a mangalik.
Pisces Ascendant - Now if it is Pisces Ascendant, Mars rules 2nd & 9th house and sits in 7th house in Virgo sign. As Virgo is sign of Conflicts and Mars being a fighter & ruler of 9th house of Law, this surely shows someone who is a lawyer. At a lower level, it shows someone who takes his beliefs to people and creates a conflict between people on basis of religious beliefs. So, this position can show those religious leaders who spread communal hatred among people. Other things can be seen as per above.
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 7th house in Aries. This is another position where a person can be a Lawyer. Mercury is communication, ruling 9th house of law and sitting in 7th house of other people. So, it clearly shows a lawyer or counselor. But as Mercury is in the sign of Mars ruled Aries, here communications/counselling become very harsh and direct. Even if they become religious preachers, they will give fiery and controversial speeches. Relations are based on communications but person must learn to communicate harmoniously.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, then Mercury rules 6th and 9th house and sits in 7th house in Cancer. This is much better position as Mercury is in the emotional sign of Cancer. This shows a very emotional and motherly counselor. So, this person can be seen as those genuine religious teachers/gurus who emotionally connect with people, who counsel them on human level and help them in their spiritual growth. As Mercury also rules 6th house, it clearly shows a person who uses his higher learning in resolving the conflicts and obstacles of people through emotionally connecting with them. They are very motherly/emotional when they communicate.
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 7th house in Pisces sign, where it is exalted. It certainly shows a spouse coming from different ethnicity, specially for a guy as Venus represents Wife. It shows a highly spiritual spouse and relationship based on spiritual values. Only one thing goes wrong when Venus is in Pisces, that they try to seek a totally devoted spouse, which might be tricky and impractical in this day and age. So, here they need to be little practical in their approach. It is going to be a very spiritual relationship.
Aquarius Ascendant - If it is Aquarius Ascendant, Venus rules 4th & 9th house and sits in 7th house in Leo. As much as this shows a very creative spouse, this also shows a spouse who wants all the fine things in life. They expect their spouse to make them live like a King/Queen. This is where things go in a mess here. Even if they want to go for snacks, they will choose the most expensive restaurant of the town. They want their spouse to make them live like a celebrity. They need to take care of this attitude to keep a good relation going.
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 7th house in Libra Sign. Here spouse bringsall the higher knowledge of 9th house into relationship. Spouse works like a guide or teacher. Spouse can be relationship counselor at the same time and counselling will be on religious/philosophical point. Now for a girl, spouse will be of different ethnicity. Spouse is bringing lots of wealth and luck into marriage.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, Jupiter rules 6th & 9th house and sits in 7th house in Capricorn, where it is debilitated. As Jupiter also rules the 6th house of disputes, it clearly shows someone may marry in different caste/culture and then marriage may go into dispute and litigation as Jupiter is debilitated. If Jupiter is nearby the exact debilitation degree, it shows that either spouse brought wrong morals or beliefs into marriage or the religious difference in partners lead to the disputes. Whenever Jupiter is debilitated, it is advisable to delay the marriage till 30s, specially for a girl as Jupiter remains karaka of Husband. Here, it shows spouse taking away your luck and money due to litigation and disputes.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 9th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 9th house lord, Saturn in 7th house (for Gemini/Taurus Ascendants respectively) surely indicates a delayed marriage. Early marriage here won't be good. Early marriage bring stress and sudden events with spouse which may even break the relation. But if delayed, it will be a stable relation based on practicalities of life. Spouse will be of elderly age, matured and very realistic/practical about life. Spouse may be working for Govt or Law Field. Here, it gives a spouse who is of strict religious views and beliefs and this strictness brings all the troubles in relationships. So, person must delay the marriage till 30s at least in this case.
Rahu - If Rahu is 9th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 7th house in Sagittarius then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Sagittarius in 7th house will transform Rahu as Jupiter 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 Sagittarius in 7th house shows a marriage into a completely different religion or with a Foreigner. There will be something uniqueness attached with marriage. This person or spouse or both will keep weird views on religion and may challenge established, organized religions. Rahu in 7th house is one of karaka of 2nd marriage, so it is better to go with thorough horoscope matching before marriage.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 9th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 7th house in Virgo 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 being in relation. They are not one of those who are looking out for their first or next partner. They are quite content and spiritual about themselves and their relations. It always remains a possibility with Ketu in 7th house that person is disinterested towards relations. The only way relation can survive in such cases is that couple becomes highly spiritual in matters of relations, means they are happy with whomsoever they marry with no expectations at all. Conjunction/Aspect of a benefic planet may change the situation altogether.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
