Ninth House Lord in First House
9th house lord sitting in 1st house.
First of all, let's see what 1st house represent -
1st house represents self, physique, personality, overall health, life path and head in human body etc.
What does it mean to have 9th house lord in 1st house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 9th house of your horoscope is sitting in the 1st house/Ascendant of horoscope.
What is the impact of having 9th house lord in 1st house?
Its generic interpretation is that this person's whole life path and personality is impacted by activities of 9th house, i.e. Higher Education, Religion, Philosophy, Law, Gurus etc. It shows that you are highly impacted by your religious gurus. It certainly shows that person attains higher education in life. It also shows a very religious person, someone who is too much about rituals and all. It should not be misunderstood as a spiritual person as spirituality is 12th house stuff. This person is much into reading scriptures and can be generally seen in society as highly learned person much like a Professor or a Preacher.
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 1st house lord as 9th house lord is going in 1st house. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
How different planets will behave differently as 9th Lord in 1st house?
Suppose it is a Sagittarius Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 9th house with Leo sign and sits in the 1st house in the sign of Sagittarius. This shows a person who is totally devoted to higher studies as ascendant is also Sagittarius, which being the 9th sign represents all the things represented by 9th house. This shows that your father was very religious & highly learned person and he instilled all the religious values in you. You are yourself a man of higher learning and values. This most definitely shows a Professor, mostly in the field of Philosophy or Law in a Govt College. It shows a person who is very Law abiding and about following all the rules and regulations, either Statutory or Religious.
So it is Scorpio Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 9th house with Cancer sign and sits in 1st house in Scorpio, where it is debilitated. This can give two results. If Moon is nearby to its exact debilitation degree then it may make someone totally irreligious. They won't believe in any religion at all. Otherwise, they will research a lot on different religions and philosophies of the world and then they will make an adamant/stubborn view as X religion is best and then they won't want to hear anything against it. So either ways, religious teachings don't come to person in a good way. But Moon alone won't make him religious fanatic, for that we need further malefic impact of Rahu/Ketu/Saturn/Mars. This would only make either Athiest or Adamant over one religion.
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 1st house in Leo sign. This is another position where person can take fight over religious views but as Mars is in a friendly sign, it shows that this person will take up that fight or argument when it is most necessary and only to defend his own views. What this position also shows that someone working as a Defense Person or Lawyer for Govt. Leo is Govt as it is ruled by Sun and Mars is fighter and ruling 9th house of Law.
Pisces Ascendant -
Now if it is Pisces Ascendant, Mars rules 2nd & 9th house and sits in 1st house in Pisces sign. This is more matured and peaceful Mars as it is in the Spiritual sign of Pisces. This time person devotes his whole energy and action in religious and spiritual activities. This makes a combination of Spirituality and Action. So, these people can be very good as Yoga/Meditation Teachers, Martial Arts, Taekwondo etc. They keep the aggressive energy of Mars but they use it in Spiritual means rather than arguing and fighting. As 9th house here is ruled by Scorpio, which is sign of Occult & Mysticism, their higher education may be in the field of Occult and then they may try to link it with Spirituality as Mars is in Pisces.
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 1st house in Libra. This person will be into reading and collecting all the information related to higher studies, philosophy, religion etc as Mercury is all about collecting information. Then Mercury takes all that information in 1st house, which means you will communicate the same information to others now. So, this position makes very good teachers, preachers and counselors in field of higher education and religion. They are pleasant speakers.
pricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, then Mercury rules 6th and 9th house and sits in 1st house in Capricorn. This time, story changes a bit. 9th house is Law too, now it will ruled by Virgo which is sign of conflicts and obstacles, Mercury is Communication/Counselling, Capricorn is sign of Law & Order. So, things are very clear here. It is Lawyer in making. They will make good lawyers and counselors.
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 1st house in Virgo sign, where it is debilitated. If Venus is nearby its exact debilitation degree, then it shows that religious matters would result in losses for you, either financially or relational. It means may be you want to get married to someone from different religion and it doesn't work out and you have to break up or it may be the situation that you generally meet conman as your Guru who fool you and that results in financial losses. It shows that marriage should be delayed and marriage should be based on practicality and realities of life rather than any romantic story.
Aquarius Ascendant -
If it is Aquarius Ascendant, Venus rules 4th & 9th house and sits in 1st house in Aquarius. This is much better situation as Venus is in friendly sign. It shows that you take the higher education of 9th house for a higher cause and serve the society with your learning. For a guy, it also shows that his wife may be of different religion/caste and might be working in large organization. It shows a much better relationship capacity of person. It also shows that relationships come to person, doesn't matter he/she approaches or not.
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 1st house in Aries Sign. This is person who is seen in society as a highly learned being. This position can open door for few professions all represented by Jupiter. It can make someone a religious preacher, a motivational speaker, a professor or a lawyer. All these professions can be seen from Jupiter. Overall, a highly learned person.
Cancer Ascendant -
If it is Cancer Ascendant, Jupiter rules 6th & 9th house and sits in 1st house in Cancer, where it is exalted. This is the best position among all. A spiritual guru of the highest level. With both positions of Jupiter, for a girl, husband will come from different ethnicity and he will bring great wealth and fortune in life. As always, when planets are so well placed then there is nothing much to talk about.
Saturn also can be 9th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 9th house lord, Saturn in 1st house (for Gemini/Taurus Ascendants respectively) shows that person deals with lots of obstacles in finding the right guru or higher education in life. His higher education may be delayed/blocked for some time. It shows that early in life, he got Gurus who were very strict and that resulted in lack of dedication in learning. But as person grows up, he will get more matured and wise teachers. Learning becomes a life long process as Saturn is slow in speed. As Saturn aspects 7th house, Marriage should be delayed and person will get a spouse who will bring responsibility, serious outlook and focus in person's life. Here relationship is not about Bollywood Romance but real serious stuff like burdens of marriage. Romance takes a back seat here. He will have to go through lots of hardships in finding his right life path. He will get success only when he puts his best effort. Normally, they get success only after mid 30s. They always have this sense of under achievement in their life. In this position, person has a very serious outlook towards life. They always want to be in discipline and keep everyone in order. They are not one of those fun loving people. Life becomes easier after 30.
If Rahu is 9th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 1st house in Gemini then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Gemini in 1st 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 Gemini in Ascendant basically indicates that this person is highly communicative and he likes to communicate about religious/philosophical stuff. They are obsessed over communication and it might be hard for them to remain silent even for some time. But as Rahu represents illusion, this also can show a person who paints a false picture of religion to fool others. This also shows a person who has a very illusive personality. You can never know truth about this person, as actually they themselves don't know about themselves.
Likewise, If Ketu is 9th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 1st house in Pisces 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 actually separates person from himself, which means these people have lack of self-value or self-worth. They feel that other people are more blessed than them. They need a mentor on daily basis to remind them how blessed they are. At the same time, it shows someone who is a master mystic and who has high intuition powers. It is so important for them to do meditation to reach their true life path. Ketu in Pisces surely shows a spiritually inclined person. They will get their true life path only through Spirituality and Mysticism.
