What if 4th lord is in 9th house for Aries Ascendant? (Vedic Astrology)
Home : Vedic Astrology: 4th lord in 9th house: You are here
4th house represents our heart and when Cancer sign falls on the 4th house it means the heart wants to nurture which the sign of Cancer represents. Through the sign of Capricorn, you dominate others and get your work done from them. But the sign of Cancer is just opposite of the sign of Capricorn which is to serve others in one way or the other. You work for them and thus you serve them.
When Moon (the ruler of 4th house) is placed in the 9th house it could be that you want to serve others as a priest or a lawyer as 9th house is law and religion and so Lawyers and Priests are seen from this house. Actually, you need to look at your Astrology software which Nakshatra and it's Pada your Moon falls in and that will exactly tell you what Moon is going to do when placed in the 9th house in the sign of Sagittarius.
There are 3 Nakshatras that falls in the sign of Sagittarius which are Mula, Purva Ashadha and Uttara Ashadha and so your Moon will be placed in either one of them.
There are different possibilities and here are some of them.
Possibility 1: Mula Nakshatra (ruled by Ketu) is about going into the deep investigation to find the truth as 'Mula' means roots and the sign of Sagittarius is a sign of truthfulness as it is ruled by Jupiter. Pada 1 of Mula Nakshatra is ruled by Mars. So, if your Moon is placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 9th house but in the Pada 1 of the Mula Nakshatra your mind (as Moon is mind) could be into investigation and this could even make you a detective. But many people who do web programming and also involved in app and software development may also have their Moon in this Pada 1 as Mars is engineering. When you do all the coding to make a website or software it is nothing but the Scorpio side of Mars.
But this placement of Moon could also make you a sportsman as Mars is energy and you need a lot of energy in sports. Your mind becomes aggressive when in the Pada of Mars. It may also be that you are someone who does a lot of research in any kind of sports and so your mind could be in the Pada of Mars in the Mula Nakshatra. If both Moon and Venus are placed in the Pada 1 it could even make you very sexual as Mula Nakshatra represents the Muladhara Chakra which represents our private parts. Mars also represents sexuality.
But you also need to look at the placement of Mars (ruler of Pada 1) and Jupiter (ruler of 9th house) in the birth chart and that will give a better idea what kind of investigation your mind is into. Many people who are into the property and real estate business also have their Moon in the Pada 1 of the Mula Nakshatra as Mars is also the significator of land and properties as Mars is "Bhumi Putra".
Possibility 2: If Moon is placed in the Pada 2 (ruled by Venus) of the Mula Nakshatra then think of what Venus represents and you will be into going deep in those things (research and investigation). For example, Venus represents beauty, luxury items, gems, jewelry, arts, crafts, etc and so you could be into a business of these items where your mind is all the time busy in doing a lot of research about the features (Jupiter is knowledge) of these products and finding out their source (root) to get at the cheapest rates. Also, look at the position of Venus and other planets in the birth chart and that will help in predicting accurately.
Possibility 3: If Moon is placed in the Pada 3 (ruled by Mercury) of the Mula Nakshatra then your mind could always be into researching and gathering all the hidden and secret information and then presenting it through the mass media such as television, phone, internet, websites, youtube videos, etc. You see a lot of people in order to make money from youtube videos travel far off places to gather all the unique and useful information they can and also make a video of what they saw and then upload it in their youtube channel to popularize and get the views. This Pada is really meant for those who are making money via advertising and marketing through the internet.
Possibility 4: If Moon is placed in the 9th house in the Mula Nakshatra Pada 4 (ruled by Moon itself) then this kind of Moon could take you to something like alternative healing such as Ayurvedic doctors, pronic healers, reiki healers, acupuncturists, physicians, Nurses, etc. You will be involved more in the spiritual and occultic side of healing people. This is because Moon is a planet of nurturing and the sign of Sagittarius represents our body's biological system. Moon (mind) here could do a lot of research in understanding the human body. Psychologists who study human behavior and their emotions can also be seen with their Moon in this Pada 4.
Possibility 5: If Moon is placed in the 9th house in the sign of Sagittarius but in the Nakshatra of Purva Ashada then the mind is more about making business deals as the Purva Ashada is ruled by Venus which is all about materialistic things of life. Such placement of Moon is possible when someone is involved in the business of daily household goods such as clothing, food, grains, luxury items, etc but creative fields like arts and crafts are also possible.
