“The Ninth House is the place where we search for a global meaning to our lives. It is where we expand our personal limited ideas into a global vision…..For some people this may be finding oneness and beauty and challenge and adventure by climbing a beautiful mountain. For others it may be to visit foreign cultures and to see their way of living. For others it may be a formal religion which explains all aspects of creation.” ¹
Journeys, expansion, inspiration, philosophy, higher learning – these are the arenas of the Ninth House, both literally and metaphorically. How do you expand your reality? What is your appetite for wisdom, intuition & a bigger picture of life? Knowing the sign & element of your Ninth House illuminates your way of searching for greater meaning in your life.
The fire signs of Aries, Leo & Sagittarius prefer creative actions. The earth signs of Taurus, Virgo & Capricorn are practical & conservative as they increase their perspective on life. Gemini, Libra & Aquarius, the air signs rely on communication & intellectual explorations, while the water signs of Cancer, Scorpio & Pisces depend on using their emotions as they expand their world view.
Having planets in the 9th house, especially the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus or Mars, adds greater openness to living a life focused on finding meaning and adventure. Your life may be spent traveling, teaching, inspiring, living in foreign countries, exploring alternative religious & social groups.
“The ninth house is designed to give us a sense of freedom, a larger perspective on life with a stroke of good fortune thrown in for good measure. It rules our big dreams and our big projects. The things we were sent here to achieve. Its message is there are no limits to the aspects of human experience we can decide to embrace. So, think big and expand your horizons. The future is wide open.”²
