Overview Of the Ninth House:
The Ninth House is one of the most joyful Houses in Astrology. This is the area that governs travel, adventure, growth and expansion. This is where we find our sense of faith and where we cultivate our personal and even religious beliefs. The Ninth House shows our teachers, mentors and gurus, whether they instilled positive belief systems within us or negative ones. This is the place where we learn to release old programming and come into our inner wisdom.
This House also rules the topic of higher education, such as getting our Ph.D.’s or even taking on spiritual courses that expand our worldview. Writers who wish to get published need to have a positive and strong Ninth House, as well as those of us who wish to be teachers or lawyers.
Finally, the Ninth House rules traveling to faraway places, places that open us up and show us new ways of living, thinking and believing. What’s not to love about the Ninth House!
