The 9th House in Astrology

Directly across from the 3rd house ruled by Gemini, you will fing the 9th house ruled by Sagittarius. Gemini is considered the lower mind, concerned with the day to day tasks wherer as the 9th house in astrology is naturally ruled by Sagittarius, our higher mind; the mind that governs truth, higher education, religion and philosophy. The 9th house also rules far off countries and individuals from far off places.

The Sun in the 9th house person is considered to be born lucky, the 9th house naturally ruled by Sagittarius ruled by Jupiter planet of luck the Sun placed in the 9th house may take on a Sagittarius vibe, a lover of law, freedom and long distance travel. Free spirited a lifelong traveler, mental and physical journeys to exotic places is to be expected. Higher learning via education or trips is very likely

The Moon in the 9th house may emotionally roam the world, connecting with people from other cultures. Traveling often, professions you may prefer are anything involving teaching, law and religion. In committed partnerships you need someone you can travel with and who offers personal freedom. May indicate taking up residence far from your place of birth

Mercury in the 9th house indicates you enjoy philosophizing, sharing ideas, communicating about your beliefs however these beliefs may fluctuate and change often, Mercury is ruled by Gemini and Gemini is the most scattered sign in the zodiac

Venus in the 9th house gives a love and admiration for other cultures; you may find love with someone from a completely different background. You very well may find beauty in all the places you travel to and read about.

Mars in the 9th house you aggressively defend your views on the world; you want to fight for your truth and may quite possibly aggressively pursue a degree in higher education. Watch out for legal concerns or people attacking you in legal matters, there is some connection between mars being god of war and the 9th house being legal matters

Jupiter in the 9th house YIPPY! Jupiter is at home in the 9th house you have an optimistic view of the world and with time your mind will expand and grow. Very likely you have a love of law and teaching as you wish to share your knowledge with the world. Good lucks via trips, higher education but more so indicates a cheerful disposition

Saturn in the 9th house indicates you have a very conservative view of the world, you may keep the views and values bestowed to you by your male parental role or the views you have always grown up with. Your mind does however have an ability toward concentration, be prepared to experience delays or setbacks in terms of long distance travel, also try to remain open minded and beware that your way is not the only way or right way of thinking

Uranus in the 9th house indicates an extremely open mind. One of my favorite placements flashes of genius, journeys off the beaten path, acceptance of others philosophical views. Uranus can be unexpected so you may experience sudden and unexpected changes in thought, sudden trips to far off places and sudden changes in higher education

Neptune in the 9th house can have the markings of a born again Christian or someone that may be susceptible toward joining fanatical groups in the hopes of attaining enlightenment or becoming one with society. You may not be entirely sure of what you believe and you may not be entirely sure on what you wish to study, one thing is certain you will probably take a significant trip on water at some point in your life.

Pluto in the 9th house searches for deeper meaning in life via travel and higher education, they may become obsessed with discovering why we are here, and when teach a subject this is no superficial placement you want to get to the heart of the matter.

Sometimes Old Lovers Can be Good friends

Had a small chat with an ex boyfriend today I complained of being tired working 16 hour days in the midst of renovations, I can’t find any time to work out I haven’t really been sleeping. (Transiting Jupiter conjunct natal mars) classic sign of overdoing it. At this point I figure I’ll sleep when I die. He said you always put too much on your plate (natal cardinal t-square). I sarcastically asked if he renovated the residence he bought last year, to which he replied; “no it was in perfect condition”. All white walls? I queried. “Yup” he agreed (he has 3 planets in Virgo so fresh and so clean is the motto). I want splashes of chartreuse in the middle of the day he enjoys Monet. Go figure.  We laughed as he challenged, “So what is your entire house purple and hot pink”. “Yes” I conceded. Poetic Purple, I don’t know how that is working out god willing perfectly with a little help from natal Jupiter (good luck) conjoining transiting Venus (beauty) in my natal 4th house of real estate. Fingers crossed. We laughed and spoke about the past, he remarked how calm I seem I assured him appearances can be deceiving and the reason being is simply that I m exhausted. I advised him I mentioned him in my previous blog regarding Sun in the 2nd house and how he is aggressively attached to his values. Did you change my name? Did you post my chart? He wanted to know. In typical fashion he prefers to remain anonymous.  You are so very Uranus in the 12th house, I smirked. He quipped “I’m just private”; I searched his chart for any indicators of conservatism (perhaps Saturn in the 9th) but came up empty. Perhaps Neptune in his natal 1st house makes him more sensitive than most. “I don’t like to be the center of attention” he went on to further to explain, telling this to me, a 5th house sun is a foreign concept. He brought up some past occurrences, this one time in particular when I wore over the knee boots to a “familystyle  restaurant”. He demanded I change I refused and remarked his burgundy shirt against khaki pants made him look like an usher at a movie theater. Welcome to Lowes! And a year later we parted ways. I will never grasp the concept of a shrinking violet, hiding your authenticity, trying hard to assimilate…That is so very Uranus in the 12th house to me. With all that being said It is still nice to sit and talk with someone that knows damn well your eccentric side isn’t tucked away its sitting right there in your freshly polished poetic purple living room

Nourish your natal Saturn

Where Saturn is located in your natal chart indicates where you will experience restriction and discipline…it is unlike the other outer planets that extend past Mars. Jupiter is the planet of luck and exuberance when located in a prosperous position it can bring you sudden wind falls of money. Uranus the planet of change offers flashes of genius, surprises and yes occasionally accidents and then we have Pluto that can plummet the depths of an experience or psyche revolutionize everything it touches in search of the truth. Pluto may destroy whatever it touches. leveling it and then ultimately rebuilding, I wish I could say the same for Saturn. But perhaps I’m looking at the glass half empty rather than half full. But I wonder how we can benefit from the father of the zodiac. After all I lack discipline as an individual, usually think in terms of “fight the man” I do not take too kindly to being told what to do and my motto should be: Rules are made to be broken. Aquarius Rising, Uranus as its ruler. My Saturn is located in my 6th house of work which makes me very industrious with very little reward and Saturn is also conjoining my descendent. And I wonder why I’m 34 and have never been married and am attracted toward colder individuals that are practical when I’m anything but. Ha! I just realized this last night and broke out into a hyperventilating fit. Ya see I always look at other peoples charts but rarely my own. Saturn in the 7th is said to be a killer. Needless to say I joined a support group on facebook immediately. I can’t help but wonder where is Saturn nicely placed? It isn’t exactly a warm fuzzy planet. If you have it in your 9th house you are traditional in thought and rather small minded, if you have it in your 2nd house you may have a hard time earning money…having it in 7th brings issues in personal relationships. I hope this post can help you find the glass half full as we all learn to live with the restriction, structures and limitations of Saturn.

Saturn in the 1st house the house of self

I call this the 10 and 2 position, ya know when you learn to drive and the instructor tells you to put your hands on the steering wheel in the 10 and 2 position? I know a man with Saturn in the 1st and he always drives the speed limit, never over, hands at 10 and 2 with his seat belt always fastened securely. That is Saturn in the 1st house, no loud blaring music, no vehicular distractions…just driving. Saturn in the 1st house gives the individual a conservative nature. They do not make waves, they follow rules, and where as Saturn in the 7th indicates concern over 1 to 1 relations Saturn in 1st indicates concern with you as an individual. You in relation to yourself. Saturn in the 1st makes your expression afflicted; perhaps you suffer from low self esteem or feel self-conscious. You may even use this feeling of inferiority to catapult yourself to make some great achievements in your professional life, especially if the Sun is squaring Saturn. (Millionaire status)

Nourishment of your 1st house Saturn can be done by venturing out of your shell a bit. Realize that this is the same part of your personality that also makes you reliable, successful and trustworthy. Give yourself free passes, if you find you are being hard on yourself; acknowledge and release it. Remind yourself of all your good qualities. Avoid subscribing to perfectionism.

Saturn in the 2nd house of your stuff

Whereas the 1st house Saturn restricts yourself expression the 2nd house Saturn is all about your stuff, primarily feeling like you do not have enough stuff. 1st house is feeling you are not enough and 2nd house Saturn is not having enough. This position of Saturn may indicate you have hard time earning money or the money you do earn you hold onto it very tight with a fear of going completely broke. You avoid being extravagant in spending and you may even avoid treating yourself to small luxuries on an occasional basis. You won’t get that massage, go to that ball game because your busy totaling up your mutual funds, international stocks and retirement plan.

Nourishment of 2nd House Saturn: Treat yourself!! You work hard you deserve it, if you have a hard time spending money make a vacation fund, put a certain amount of money away each week for something you enjoy whether it is going to the movies or heliskiing. Force yourself to enjoy life. You can’t take that money with you into the next life.

Saturn in the 3rd house of your lower mind, the way you learn and communicate indicates there may be a tendency towards depressive thoughts and an overall gloomy outlook. Specific in speech, you search for words and select them carefully. Saturn is not at its worst when placed in the 3rd house after all your concentration abilities are top notch, you may be great at research and writing.

Nourishment of the 3rd house Saturn: Keep those dreadful thoughts in check! Take mental breaks; check out occasionally if at all possible. Read material that is light from time to time. You don’t always have to be solving the mysteries of the world.

Saturn in the 4th house of roots and family, indicates coldness growing up perhaps one of your parents was MIA or somehow emotionally unavailable. Saturn represents restriction and in this case it usually manifests in childhood. Due to this fact you may grow up and wish to incorporate a very “stable” home environment. But ah-ha this is Saturn so you may be a very stern authoritive figure with in your house, present but stern. Also the 4th house rules real-estate, this placement does well with property as Saturn on the flip side does offer stability.

Nourishment of a 4th house Saturn: accept no ones childhood is perfect. Far from it. Sometimes you have to provide yourself with what your parents have not. Find a happy medium when married and rearing children, share some of the burdens and release some of your pain.

Saturn in the 5th house of speculation, love affairs and creativity can restrict your ability to have fun. Let go! Enjoy! Be conscious that the planet of restriction is in your house of “fun times”. You may have an aversion to casual sexual liaisons and prefer only serious relationships. Children are a cause for concern perhaps you are unable to relate to them, you have a hard time conceiving or you find yourself always having to be a disciplinarian role in relation to them. Saturn placed here is not a good placement for slot machines and betting on sports. Your money would be better placed in safer venues.

Nourishment of a 5th house Saturn: Make time for fun, enjoy other peoples company even when there isn’t any long term potential. Go dancing, have a night out with the girls/guys. MAKE FUN your priority.

Saturn in the 6th house of day to day work and health routines means you are a very hard worker. Nose to the grind, you get tasks done and are a loyal employee however you have a tendency to be over looked unless otherwise indicated (Jupiter in 7th or 10th). You may get stuck into routines, being that this is also the house of health habits as long as your health habits are good ones, this can be a plus.

Nourishment for a 6th house Saturn: There is a saying: Expectation is the root of all disappointment. With a 6th house Saturn do not expect to rise immediately to rise to the top your profession just like a 7th house Saturn should not expect to have a successful marriage before the age of 29;) However with steadfast determination, keeping a keen eye on your professional goals and branching out a bit socially, you should find yourself where you need to be in no time.

Saturn in the 7th house the house of 1 one 1 partnerships. There are support groups for this, many people will tell you not to marry before 29 years of age, if you do marry early it will most likely be to a Capricorn, expect delays in marriage. My experience is being draw to cautious, responsible types that embody the characteristics of an earth sign. Practical, fiscally resourceful etc. There may be few relationships because those you do enter into are done so with serious intent. Some people fear they will never be married I don’t believe this is always the case. I think you have to consider the entire chart, I complain continuously that I want to be married but my moon is in Aries (freedom and adventure) Venus is unaspected in Gemini scattered (scattered and lighthearted) and of course Saturn conjunct 7th house cusp… this usually indicates an age difference with a parential type

Nourishment of a 7th house Saturn: acknowledge commitment is an issue, I have this placement and shun at the idea of renewing my cell phone contract. I enjoy relationships when they are fresh and new, on dates I feel as though I’m suffocating. I’m always thinking, “Can I do this for the rest of my life”. Anxiety off the charts. I spent years searching for that “perfect love” as a Saturn in 7th house would. Only to realize at 34 oopsy that doesn’t exist. When you are ready to do the work Saturn in the 7th will give you a lifelong love, a stable love, a practical love. But first you have to have the urge to truly merge.

Saturn in the 8th house of other people’s money, sex, death and regeneration. There is a certain amount of resistance to change, the 8th house is the house of transformation and Saturn is restriction; the more you resist change the more it hurts. Coming to terms with that of which you cannot control. Wanting to dominate sexual partners, wanting to be in total control over finances. The theme is control, holding on so tightly

Nourishing an 8th house Saturn: Acceptance, allow change to happen, surrender in partnerships. Share financial responsibilities; expect delays when applying for mortgage and other loans. Loosen the grip you have over others and over yourself. Allow life to flow

Saturn in the 9th house of higher thinking and higher education. This manifests itself as being closed minded and conservative. Perhaps you stick to the same beliefs you were raised with. Never daring out to discover your own. Never questioning the why? You may not find Saturn here to be intrusive because you may think your way of thinking is the right way. The only way. Strong indication of being conservative politically and religiously.

Nourishing a 9th house Saturn: With this placement I want to scream: Step outside yourself! Open your mind! Perhaps you were raised believing that Jesus was your Christ and savior and you went to Sunday school and you read the bible on Saturday afternoons. Who said this is the right way? How did you reach these opinions? Who states these are indeed accurate? Are these truly your opinion or those that were handed down? I encourage you to hear others out, form your own opinions question the how’s and why of life

Saturn in the 10th house where Saturn is at home. Ahhh must be nice to have a 10th house Saturn. The 10th house rules career, reputation. Other than bearing a superior attitude that rules with an iron fist that may on occasion be very consumed with status…Saturn in the 10th house gives you the ability to be well respected and reach great lengths in your chosen profession. The sky is the limit.

Nourishing the 10th house Saturn: Remember to be nice to those that are in subordinate positions. Although you may feel you have all the answers it is important for those that work for you feel they are heard, so be sure to listen.

Saturn in the 11th house of like minded friends, group affiliations as well as hopes and wishes. Saturn here makes you not entirely comfortable in social situations in particular. You may be amongst a group of your peers who you have known for a lifetime yet lack the confidence in letting loose and being 100% yourself.

Nourishing your 11th house Saturn: Remember people are your friends because they want to be. If large groups isn’t your idea of a grand time, that’s ok but do make time with a small group of intimate friends where you feel free to exchange your beliefs, hopes and wishes!

Saturn in the 12th house of what remains hidden, most likely in your subconscious Sometimes its represents not only what you keep from others but what you hide from yourself. I can relate to this placement because Capricorn is on my 12th house cusp. With an empty house you can absorb the energy of the sign on the cusp. The feeling of being alone, even when you are surrounded by a bunch of close friends, feeling overwhelmed, like you have to take responsibility for everything and everyone.   At least once a month I cry: I’m so tired of doing everything by myself.

Nourishment of a 12th house Saturn: Let me preface and say I’m not religious, but God helps those who help themselves. Do not allow others to take advantage, roll up that red carpet that they have been using to walk over you! Next acknowledge that the world is a sad place, but you cannot absorb and take on other people’s pain 24/7. If you want to help volunteer once a week, not more. Also take the time you need to do your tasks. One step at a time as with everything else that is all any of us can do.
