Sun moves into the 9th House from H8 a person is likely to feel himself
lightening up. His sense of adventure will return and will no longer feel
himself to be at the mercy of his emotions. At this time new influences
and new activities are frequently sought out in an attempt to let in fresh
air and shake the mind free from its preoccupations.
new influences may take the form of spiritual activities or ideas or plans
to travel to see new sights and new places.
person tends to feel very strongly at this time that he must pick himself
up, dust himself down and move his life on. Even if this involves little
more than trying to find a new way of looking at his problems, it
indicates nonetheless that his spirit is reviving.
the Sun progresses in the 9th House a person is usually concerned to find
a context in which to place the circumstances of his life and thereby give
them some coherence.
the Sun natally is in H8 then considerable personal suffering may be the
spur for this attempt to find a purpose to his life.
the natal Sun is in H10 then a person may lose a lot of his drive and
ambitiousness as he begins to question the direction in which he is
driving his life. He may decide to enrich his life by a period of working
overseas. Regardless of whether the movement into H9 has been from H8 or
H10, this period of his life is usually experienced as a more adventurous
and more expansive time, and overseas may well have a part to play, even
if it is represented in his life in the form of ideas from another
transit of Mercury to the 9th House usually lifts a person, albeit
temporarily, and enables him to see some light at the end of the tunnel,
whether that tunnel is created by material responsibilities or emotional
difficulties. Regardless of whatever else may be happening in a person's
life, Mercury, when operating through the 9th House, increases a person's
receptivity to new ideas and new influences and this may enable him to get
a different perspective on his situation.
Mercury progresses into the 9th House, it tends to encourage a person to
cast his net wider for impressions and ideas, and this is likely to give
him a new level of awareness and a new way of understanding his life.
Through the 9th House a person seeks for a context, which will give the
circumstances of his life a
meaning and a coherence. When Mercury is operating through H9, it tends to
be done through the medium of the written and the spoken word,
intellectually, rather than through direct experience.
Venus transits the 9th House, a person tends to be drawn to new
experiences and new ways of viewing life through the medium of his
aesthetic sense. The art or ceremonies of a culture or tradition, the
colour and sights of a foreign country and even an association with a
person from a different cultural tradition may excite his imagination at
this time and make him hungry to broaden his knowledge.
tends to be a good transit under which to travel because the mind is
receptive to the novel and the unfamiliar.

something of lasting value to a person attempting to gain a new
perspective on his life.
Venus enters the 9th House by progression a person enters a period of his
life in which he may question, according to more spiritual criteria, the
direction, which his life is taking.
Venus natally is in H8, then he may attempt to understand and assess the
price he is paying in terms of quality of life for his emotional involvements
with others. Even if there is no desire to penetrate the reason for
intense emotional ties to another, the movement of Venus into H9 may
enable a person to break certain onerous or destructive associations.
Removal overseas may have a part to play in this bid for freedom.
Venus natally is in H10, then during this period of his life, a person may
question the price he is paying for status and success, and may revise his
ambitions or attempt to improve the quality of his working life by seeking
employment overseas in what he considers to be a more congenial
when Venus moves into the 9th House quality of life and meaningfulness
become increasingly important considerations.
Mars transits the 9th House a person puts his energy, which is usually
considerable at this time, into improving his situation, in whatever he
perceives to be the scheme of things. It may be a time in which much
effort is put into religious affairs or spiritual development, into
arranging a trip overseas or in physical travel. Or, it may be a time in
which he attempts to get the sanction of the law. Whatever form his
efforts take, a transit of Mars to the 9th House makes a person reach out
and extend himself beyond the confines of his habitual circumstances.
at this time is likely to cause much restlessness, as it is a personal
wish to break new ground and move himself on. Yet, his efforts may need
balancing and modifying when Mars moves on into the House of Capricorn.
Mars progresses into the 9th House a person enters a period of his life in
which he frequently reconsiders the ways in which hitherto he has used his
energy and powers of self-expression. If Mars natally is in the 8th House,
then he may consider the way in which his emotional needs have allowed
others to manipulate him and constrain his will. If natal Mars is in H10,
then he may re-assess his ambitions and consider whether he can still
justify the price he is paying for status and recognition.
Mars is working through the 9th House a person attempts to align his will
with what he understands to be the superior power whether that be
spiritual or civil.
Jupiter transits the 9th House a person usually experiences a great
willingness to open up to new ideas and new experiences.
tends to be very attractive to a person at this time, as Jupiter favours
direct experience rather than the medium of the written or spoken word.
When Jupiter is in H9 opportunities to travel tend to be more numerous and
more feasible than is customary.
different ways of living and being of which a person becomes aware at this
time, whether by direct experience or through exposure to the art or ideas
of other cultures, tend to leave with broader views, an enhanced
appreciation of the notion of quality of life and a greater curiosity
about the unity underlying the life’s diversity.
Jupiter enters into the 9th House a person tends to be motivated to seek
answers to the mystery of God and man’s place within the scheme of
things. If Jupiter natally is in H8, then a person's interest in
metaphysical matters develop out of his experiences with others and from
trying to understand the purpose of relationships. If Jupiter natally is
in the 10th House, then a person may wish to take on the experience of
of whether a person’s perspective is predominantly materialistic or
spiritual, the period in which Jupiter occupies the House of Sagittarius,
its own House, will be one in which a person is hungry for new
impressions, a greater quality of life and a way of understanding life
which will give coherence to his own experiences.
transit of Saturn to the 9th House frequently requires a person to
question his belief system. This may be result of experiences which either
disappointed or disillusioned him, requiring him to reconsider what
hitherto he had assumed or taken on trust. The context may be social,
legal, religious or spiritual. At this time Saturn may highlight either
perceived deficiencies in the system or inadequacies in a person’s
understanding of his place within it - for it is the nature of Saturn to
make a person - initially at least - doubt his capabilities and judgment.
transit of Saturn to H9 can be a time of difficulty or even crisis as a
person struggles to come to terms with what hitherto, he had not given
credence. Litigation is ill advised at this time, regardless of the
perceived justic of the case and overseas ventures may be fraught with
difficulty. Yet, as is ever the case with Saturnian crises, if the issue
can be faced up to and dealt with consciously, a person can emerge from
the situation with conviction and understanding to replace a naive belief
Saturn progresses into the 9th House, then it is during this period of his
life that a person has to grapple consciously with his belief system. If
Saturn natally is in H10, then a person may have accepted, largely
unquestioningly, the prevalent beliefs of his society, whether they
concern the role of the individual within society or the orthodox
religious beliefs. When Saturn enters H9, a person has occasion to
question those beliefs and the assumption that Establishment thinking, is
necessarily correct. Any conflict may or may not be resolved in this
lifetime - certainly it is not guaranteed - but the conflict is likely to
motivate him to examine the relationship between God and man and man and
transit of Uranus to the 9th House upturns a person’s belief system.
Unlike Saturn, however, Uranus tends to produce a sassy independence and
the process usually involves a rejection of what, hitherto, had been
accepted without question. There is rarely much in the way of self-doubt.
The stance is more likely to be one of rebelliousness and the focus is
likely to be form rather than essence: doctrine rather than the basic
is resistant to external authority sources and a person frequently rejects
the role of the mediator in spiritual matters: Uranus has difficulty with
religious form not spirituality. A person engaged in litigation at this
time may well lose his respect for the legal process, perceiving it to
involve too much procedure and formality. Moreover, he would be ill
advised to rely upon success. A transit of Uranus to the 9th House tends
to make a person reliant upon his own conscience in the matter of wrong
travel undertaken at this time may be somewhat hazardous, but no matter
how disruptive or unexpected the situations, a person will come out the
other side with a greater confidence in his own powers and abilities.
Uranus moves into the 9th House by progression its effect, like that of
the transit, is to free a person from beliefs which are no longer useful
to him, usually because they are frustrating his future development. As
the progression takes longer than the transit, this process is normally
more subtle and protracted, unless the 9th House is tenanted, but a person
will still emerge more reliant upon his own conscience in deciding matters
of wrong or right and less inclined to accept the authority of mediators
whether they take the form of an individual or institutions.
Uranus natally is in H10, then the process may well involve overt
rejection of the authority claimed by a religious
or Establishment body.
transit of Neptune to H9 tends to create within a person a yearning to
find a meaning to life by changing his way of perceiving. When Neptune
operates through H9, a person seeks a higher level of consciousness, which
will lift him above separation and enable him to experience a sense of
belonging. He yearns to know God and understand the outworking of his
travel may have a part to play in this quest. It is not uncommon at this
time for a person to become drawn to a particular culture or religious
tradition, which he believes to contain the knowledge he seeks.
H9 Neptune creates a hunger for experience;
is not enough.
Neptune progresses into the 9th House, then in this period of his life, he
will be on the look out for knowledge, which will help him understand his
own experiences and give a purpose to his life. From the purpose comes a
sense of belonging.
Neptune is working through H9,
is never enough - a person seeks a higher level of awareness. Although he
may gain his understanding of this through an examination of various
religious and spiritual ideas, he needs at this time of his life, to be a
with the transit, overseas travel may have a part to play in this process.
If the 9th House is tenanted, a relationship with another, whether a
teacher or intimate, may have a part of significance also.
transit of Pluto through H9 tends to expose the fears and complexes
associated with acknowledging the
of a higher order. Out of fear, a person may deny the existence of this
order or he may desire to arrogate, for the purposes of personal
the powers of that higher order. Knowledge is the key to understanding and
accessing that power, and when Pluto transits H9, individuals and bodies
that claim to have knowledge may be catalysts in the process of exposure,
of which Pluto is in the service.
person may find himself in conflict with the law, with a religious
or with the authorities in a foreign country for the reasons that he
them; an attempt to take unto himself the power invested in them or
abdicates his own responsibilities to them. As the result of the struggle,
he may better understand his motives for putting himself in the situation
that he did.
the 9th House is not tenanted at this time, then the struggle may remain
an inner matter confined to issues of belief and non-belief in the
and powers of a higher order and the nature and degree of submission
Pluto progresses into the 9th House then a person enters into a period of
his life in which he is required to face his emotional reaction to the
idea of God and a higher order. It may be that fear has made him deny the
existence of God and yet he cannot face the prospect of carrying on living
in a Universe without meaning or direction. Or, he may seek to become
identified with that power. When Pluto is working through the H9 messianic
delusion is not uncommon.
Pluto natally is in H10 then a person’s resistance to authority is
likely to undergo a shift of focus during this period of his life from
those who wield power within society to the ideas and concepts, which
authorize them. Whatever
Pluto occupies in the natal chart, the period in which it moves through H9
will be one in which he is obliged to confront the idea if not the
reality, of a will greater than his own, and to discover whether he has a
need - or use - for God.
the Moon moves into the 9th House a person usually experiences a lifting
of the heaviness, which is so often present when it transits H8. Optimism
and a spiritedness return and there may be, albeit temporarily, a desire
‘to make sense of it all’. More time, therefore, may be given over to
spiritual and religious matters or there may be a greater willingness to
break routines in order to make room for mew activities.
movement of the progressing Moon through the 9th House is usually one of
the more exhilarating periods of the 28-year cycle. A sense of adventure
tends to return after the heaviness and sense of impotence, so often
felt during the Moon’s 8th House period, and a person frequently feels
more inclined to take financial risks in order to get away to see places
and do things which fire his imagination.
nearly always has a part to play during this period because a person feels
hungry for new experiences and impressions. Acute restlessness is
frequently experienced at this time and routine and commitment are
burdensome. Moreover, opportunities to travel may be more numerous than is
customary at this time.
period, by dint of the experiences it contains and the increased concern
with quality of life, which is a characteristic, nearly always leads to a
re-appraisal of lifestyle and career.
the Moon's 9th House period, a person may become aware of a specific
spiritual path or therapy of which he is anxious to become a practitioner.
The logistics of this step are often his concern during the Moon’s
progression through the 10th House.
period during which the Moon moves through the 9th House is almost
invariably a time when a person seeks to achieve a better quality of life.
Thus, it may be a spiritual quest or it may involve physical removal to
another part of the world in search of a different lifestyle.
some, this quest will last only as long as the Moon occupies H9. As it
passes on into H10 they will once again knuckle down to what they perceive
to be their responsibilities. For others, life will never again be the
same because during this period they may find a path on which they may
remain until they die.
