Today, 9th house lord sitting in 9th house.
So first of all, let's see what 9th house represents -
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 9th house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 9th house of your horoscope is sitting in the 9th house of horoscope.
Now, what is the impact of having 9th house lord sitting in 9th house?
1st of all any planet that is sitting in its own sign is actually the strongest. It is even stronger than exalted planet and the reason is that everyone feels most safe at his own home. So, a planet sitting in its own sign feels like he is at his home and also strengthens the house it is sitting in. Its generic interpretation is that this person becomes very sure of his beliefs and religion. They have strong religious foundations. You can't make them change their religious beliefs. They have a strong backing of higher education and Gurus and hence it is hard to sway them from their religious values. Now, it doesn't mean that they have right values. It only means that they are headstrong about their values.
Now, results may be different due to aspect, conjunctions of other planets or the planet being Retrograde or Combust. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 9th house Lord in 9th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Sagittarius Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 9th house with Leo sign and sits in the 9th house only. It shows that person's confidence and authority in life will come when he deals with matters of higher education. When he can get good higher education, then he will feel confident about himself. It shows that father instilled values and beliefs in person and he feels proud in following them. At the same time, as Sun burns the house it sits in, here it gives person authoritative teachers, with whom he has constant ego battles.But in the end, they will themselves be very authoritative about their religious views.
Moon - So it is Scorpio Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 9th house with Cancer sign and sits in 9th house in Cancer. This time mother instills religious views and beliefs but this time person is emotionally attached with religion and philosophy. Their Mother become Teacher or their Teachers are Motherly. Person himself become a good teacher of higher education. Their mind is always on religion, philosophy and education. Mind wants to travel and meet people of different ethnicity, so that it can learn from different sources.
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 9th house in Aries sign. This shows a person who is headstrong about his religious beliefs. As Aries is sign of Individuality, this person will assert his individuality in field of higher education or religion. If beliefs are wrong and there is further malefic impact on Mars, it shows that person will even take physical fights to defend his views. This person will have dominance struggle with his Teachers and will try to overpower them by proving that his views are right.
Pisces Ascendant - Now if it is Pisces Ascendant, Mars rules 2nd & 9th house and sits in 9th house in Scorpio sign. Almost similar things can be seen here. Additionally, this person will put action for attaining higher education of occult & mysticism. Higher Education may go through a transformation, means it may go through a start-stop phase. Relation with Father may be transformative too.
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 9th house in Gemini. As Mercury is all about collection of information, these people are all about collecting various information about higher education, religion, philosophy and people of different ethnicity. As Mercury is travelling, these people like to travel and communicate with different people and learn from them. As Mercury is communications, these people like to communicate, teach and preach about what they learn.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, then Mercury rules 6th and 9th house and sits in 9th house in Virgo, where it is exalted. Virgo is where Mercury becomes serious. Now, Mercury is not all about collecting whatever information comes to the grasp but here Mercury becomes analytical and critical about the knowledge he is getting. He becomes selective about which one to take and which one to leave. Hence, these people can become excellent teachers/professors. They can study different religions and critically examine all of them to do a comparative study. So, they are not dependent about one source for knowledge.
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 9th house in Taurus sign. This shows a person who loves travelling. As Taurus is sign of Wealth, they earn while Travelling. They go to different places, learn about different cultures and like to collect things of different cultures for memory. They consider the experiences while travelling as their true assets and wealth. Likewise, they consider higher knowledge as their true wealth.
Aquarius Ascendant - If it is Aquarius Ascendant, Venus rules 4th & 9th house and sits in 9th house in Libra. Almost similar things can be seen here but additionally as Libra is sign of relationship, this shows that person will get into relation while travelling to a far distant places. For a guy, as Venus represents Wife, it obviously shows that person will be meeting his wife from a far distant place or from different ethnicity. As Libra is sign of balancing things, they like to keep balance between different religious views and philosophies. As Venus is planet of peace and diplomacy, they like to be diplomatic on these issues and like to keep peace between different beliefs.
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 9th house in Sagittarius Sign. A born Guru. Guru sitting in the sign of Guru and in the house of Guru. These are people who are very religious and ritualistic but at the same time they are not adamant. They are receptive to different views and beliefs. As 9th house and Sagittarius both represent different religions, philosophy and cultures, they study about all the cultures and beliefs. They are highly learned people and hence they end up being Professors in University or Preachers for all.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, Jupiter rules 6th & 9th house and sits in 9th house in Pisces. This time person is religious and spiritual both. 9th house is house of religion and Pisces is sign of Spirituality. So, these people learn about different religions but they also have a view that spirituality is different than bookish knowledge of religions. They become more a spiritual being. They can be seen as Spiritual Gurus who guide others regarding problems of life as here Jupiter also rules 6th house of obstacles. For a girl, Husband will be from different ethnicity and will be highly learned.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 9th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 9th house lord, Saturn in 9th house (for Gemini/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 to 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.
Rahu - If Rahu is 9th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 9th house in Aquarius then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Aquarius 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 Aquarius in 9th house shows someone who likes to deal with religious matters through Scientific Approach. It means they wont accept any religious view unless it is proved scientifically. They keep a very weird approach towards religion where they don't any religion as is, and ask for proof on everything. They spend most of time away from birth place and live with people of different ethnicity. They have a weird relation with father and their Gurus.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 9th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 9th house in Scorpio 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.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
