What if 4th lord is in 9th house for a Scorpio Ascendant? (Vedic Astrology)
Home : Vedic Astrology: 4th lord in 9th house: You are here
There are three Nakshatras that falls on the sign of Cancer which are Pushya, Ashlesha, and Punarvasu. You should look in your astrology software which particular Nakshatra and it's Pada your Saturn falls in and that will give a more better idea what Saturn is going to give you when placed in the 9th house.
There are a lot of possibilities when Saturn is placed in the 9th house of the horoscope of the native for a Scorpio Ascendant.
Possibility 1: Since the Aquarius sign falls on the 4th house > people born as Scorpio Ascendant want to nurture the masses (public) as the sign of Aquarius represents the masses or large organizations and 4th house is of nurturing. The fourth house also represents our heart (Dil) and so their heart is all about to serve the masses after taking a leadership position in the government or some large organization. Or they want to spread their business network into the masses after owning the business. That is the reason the sign of Leo (of leadership) falls on their 10th house of higher authorities.
But since here Saturn (the ruler of 4th house) is placed in the sign of Cancer (enemy sign) in the 9th house the native may feel insecure when it comes to serving the public. 9th house is actually 6th from the 4th house and this house is the house of obstacles of the 4th house as anything 6th is obstacles, diseases and debt in Vedic Astrology. Since 4th house also represents your mother she may also have insecurity in her as part of the different obstacles in her life. Cancer is a sign of security and peace of mind and when Saturn is placed in this sign it makes you insecure. Also, miserly people may also have their Saturn in the sign of Cancer as Saturn doesn't let them open their heart as 4th house represents our heart.
This placement may also get you in debt and that may be the cause of your insecurity regarding your home or any business related to clothing or food or home related products. If Mars is placed in the sign of Cancer (debilitated Mars) this may get your home into debt as Mars is the significator of home, land, and properties. Actually, the placement of the Moon in the birth chart will tell more what kind of insecurity it will be in your heart when Saturn is placed in the sign of Cancer. If Moon is also placed along with Saturn then there will be no insecurity as a planet sitting in its own sign always protects that house.
Possibility 2: Saturn is a natural significator of your karma or action in life. So now when Saturn is placed in the sign of Cancer (especially in the Pushya Nakshatra) this gives a clear hint that your karma (or action) in life would be something related to Moon (as Moon rules the sign of Cancer) such as clothing, food, milk, butter, etc. It means you could be in the business of distribution of these products or other products related to home or 4th house. This is more so possible if Moon is placed in the sign of Aquarius in the 4th house. Here there will be an exchange of lords between 4th house and the 9th house and so there will be no insecurity about which I mentioned above.
Possibility 3: If Saturn and Moon both are placed in the sign of Cancer, especially if Pada 3 (ruled by Venus) of the Pushya Nakshatra and if Venus is placed in the sign of Capricorn in the 3rd house then it could even make you a good painter or an artist in general (creative field). You may also be an artist online such as a web designer (using tools like photoshop). This is because Saturn in the sign of cancer does give the ability for creative work if Moon and Venus are well placed. Cancer is a water sign and in arts also you use water, for example, while making paintings you use watercolors which are nothing but a representation of the sign of Cancer.
Possibility 4: If Saturn is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 9th house in the Pada 4 (ruled by Mars) of the Pushya Nakshatra and if Moon is placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 2nd house and if Mars and Venus are placed in the sign of Leo in the 10th house then it could make you someone who deals in real estate and property. This is because the sign of Cancer is also a sign of home which is nothing but real estate and property. Mars in the sign of Leo makes you put your energy (as Mars is energy) in creativity as Leo is creativity. But since Saturn (the action) is in the sign of cancer it shows creativity in the field of home and real estate when Mars is placed in the sign of Leo.
Possibility 5: If Saturn is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 9th house but if it is placed in the Ashlesha Nakshatra (not Pushya) then it could either take you to the mystical world such as the occult science or in the field of healing and medicines (such as Pharmaceuticals or chemicals) as Ashlesha Nakshatra is connected with the poison. It means healing by taking out the poison. You see there are many doctors who do the surgeries of people suffering from injuries such as sports injuries and also accidents. Such doctors may also have their Saturn in the sign of Cancer in Ashlesha Nakshatra. This is more so possible if Mars, Mercury, and Moon are placed in the 1st house in the sign of Scorpio. You could also be a News anchor or a Youtuber (making videos on youtube.com) if Mars, Mercury, and Moon are placed in the 8th house while still considering Saturn in the 9th house.
