Ninth House in the Complete Horoscope
Your Departures in Classical Astrology
The changes needed in life,
breaking up and going yonder,
towards unfamiliar sceneries.
Zodiac sign and PlanetIf the House changes Zodiac sign somewhere in its span, that means your experiences of travel and new perspectives alter at some point in your life. That includes at least one significant relocation into an environment with the characteristics of the latter Zodiac sign. If the House is mainly in one single Zodiac sign, you may still travel extensively and experience changes in life, but they all tend to have the same characteristics.
Planets in the 9th House show that travel and relocation are significant parts of your life. They are likely to happen often, at least they are of great importance when they do. If there are no planets in the House, you may still travel and change habitat, but these events are not that significant in your life.
Here are simple keywords describing the nature of your travels and new perspectives in life, depending on what Zodiac sign you have in the 9th House:
Here are keywords for how travel and major changes in life appear if you have a planet in your 9th House:
The keywords are just simple clues to understand the 9th House. You need to consider the whole before deciding on the meaning of one single ingredient.
AspectsThe 9th House has the following aspect relations to other Houses:
These relations between the Houses are quite important when analyzing their influence. The opposition aspect to the 3rd House, that of friends, simply shows that if you travel or relocate, you are separated from your friends. If it's a relocation, you are likely to substitute some of them with new ones.
The trine to the 1st House, identity, shows that travel and new experiences enrich your image and cause new people to get to know you. The trine to the 5th House, leisure, is evident in our time, since most of our travel is done on vacations. In addition, new experiences stimulate your spare-time activities — and the other way around, maybe even more so.
The square to the 12th House, personal sacrifice, is a reminder that personal shortcomings can become great hindrances when you want to broaden your mind and your experiences. The square to the 6th House, work, is no mystery: travel and relocation cause problems for your livelihood. That's somewhat true even if travel is part of your work.
The sextile to the 11th House, ideals and the greater social scene, shows the widened perspective of travel and relocation. Your new experiences also help you to form your ideals. The sextile to the 7th House, partnership, seems to suggest that you should bring your partner along — or find new ones where you go. Both cases easily happen and tend to be quite stimulating.
