What if the sign of Cancer falls on the 9th house? (Vedic Astrology)
For a Scorpio Ascendant, the sign of Cancer falls on the 9th house and there could be several meanings of this, and here are some of them.
1) 9th house is the house of expeditions or exploration and the sign of Cancer represents the water. You might have seen people who go for sea expeditions or water cruises or sea sports or they might be connected with some marine profession and such people could be Scorpio ascendant natives with the 9th lord Moon being placed in the sign of Pisces in the 5th house as 5th house is the house of recreational activities and Pisces is a sign that represents the sea.
So if you have this placement of Moon you certainly could travel for a marine cruise one day in your life. Many swimmers are also seen from this placement if other planets in the birth chart and the Navamsa chart are supportive of that. Sportsmen, in general, are most commonly seen from this placement of 9th lord Moon in the 5th house.
2) If the 9th lord Moon is placed in the sign of Aquarius in the 4th house then such natives may also serve the people or customers in a bus or a train in some long-distance journey as the 9th house is the house of long-distance journeys and Moon is a planet of nurturing and Aquarius is a sign that represents the public.
For example, a bus conductor could also be seen with this placement as his mind is always into the people on the bus to collect the tickets from them. Also, the 4th house is the house of conveniences such as traveling in a vehicle or even a boat or even an airplane, and the 4th house is also the house of taking care (nurturing).
Also, people serving food for people who are in travel can also be seen from this placement and this is more so possible if the 4th lord Saturn is placed in the sign of Taurus in the 7th house. Also, you could serve the customers in a hotel or restaurant with this placement of Moon. Many people keep a trolley of water and drinks on the street side to serve the people traveling on the road and such people may also have this placement.
People selling fruits and vegetables on the street may also have this placement as the 9th house represents plants, animals, trees, crops, etc, and fruits & vegetables are obtained from plants and trees. But this is more so possible if Saturn and Jupiter are placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 2nd house as the sign of Sagittarius and 9th house are just the same thing. Also, Moon is a planet of taking care (nurture) and when Moon is placed in the sign of Aquarius it means taking care of people.
Also, there are people like runners in athletic events and such people can also be seen from this placement as Aquarius also represents our legs and 9th house is long-distance running or race (travel) but this is more so possible if the 4th lord Saturn is placed in the sign of Libra in the 12th house as the 12th house is open space where you run. 9th house is actually the higher self of 5th house of sports and recreational activities as the 9th house is 5th from the 5th house.
3) If the 9th lord Moon is placed in the sign of Capricorn in the 3rd house and if the 3rd lord Saturn is placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 2nd house then people such as gardeners, farmers, and cooks can be seen from this placement as gardens, farmlands, vegetables, crops, etc all these are represented by the 9th house and the sign of Sagittarius. And Capricorn is a sign of tools and machinery used to work with plants, trees, farming, cutting vegetables, etc. People working with water systems can also be seen from this placement.
Also, the 3rd house is the house of skills of hands. But if Saturn is in the 10th house in the sign of Leo and if the lord of Leo, Sun, Mars, and Venus are placed in the sign of Libra in the 12th house then a Lawyer could also be seen. So it could be anything depending on the location of other planets in the birth chart. This is because if Capricorn is a sign of machinery and tools then it is also a sign of authority and power as it represents the approval of something as per the government laws.
4) Also, people working in the field of transportation and travel such as vehicle drivers can also be seen from this placement of 9th lord Moon in the 3rd house in the sign of Capricorn as they also go for long-distance journeys and Capricorn is a sign that even represents a vehicle as the vehicle is also a moving machine and Moon is a planet of comfort and so it becomes comfort with a vehicle which means travel comfort and 3rd house is also the house of travel path and it represents roads, bridges, railway tracks, etc. So people like civil and mechanical engineers may also have this placement if other planets in the birth chart are also supportive. 9th house is actually also the house of higher knowledge as Jupiter rules this house in the default zodiac and Jupiter is a planet of higher knowledge.
5) Sagittarius is a sign that represents the nature and environment and we obtain a lot of things from nature through plants and animals such as wool, fur, cotton, ivory, leather, textile, vegetables, fruits, eggs, milk, fish, etc and so people working in the production, processing, or manufacturing of these items may also be Scorpio ascendant with the 9th lord Moon placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 2nd house.
6) If the 9th lord Moon is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 1st house then people working in the petrochemical industry can be seen from this placement as Scorpio is a sign of chemical reactions and a lot of chemical reactions occur when fuel like petrol, diesel, and kerosene are burned. Scorpio is actually a risky sign and so people working with hazardous products or chemicals such as insecticides and pesticides in the fertilizer industry can also be seen from this placement as these are risky products to kill insects and Scorpio is also a sign of killing. Moon in Scorpio is also good for blood donations as Scorpio is a sign of sucking.
7) If the ascendant lord Mars is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 9th house then it can give a lot of agitation in the heart (unstable heart) as Mars is considered debilitated in the sign of Cancer and the sign of Cancer also represents our heart. When the heart is not stable such people move a lot as the energy of Mars makes them very active in the heart and it may also give a lot of anger. Boxers often have this placement and then they get their anger calm down by beating the opponent. Also, vehicle drivers often have this placement as they spend a lot of their energy in long-distance journeys.
8) If Saturn is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 9th house then this could make the native heartless to his father or guru or teacher or a particular religion. The father will feel like his son or daughter is heartless to him. This is because Saturn is a planet of restriction and so it restricts the emotions or feelings towards others as Cancer is a sign of our good feelings towards others. The person may also not have any feeling towards other people's religion.
Or there could be some kind of insecurity when it comes to father or for a long-distance journey or pilgrimages. Many workers who work on the construction sites as laborers may also have this placement as Saturn represents the construction equipment or tools and the sign of Cancer represents shelters. Labour is needed in the construction of a home or any other building. 9th house is 6th from the 4th house of home and anything 6th is labor job or some difficult work.
9) If Jupiter is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 9th house then this is a great placement to have to do something big in life such as civil engineering or mechanical engineering as Jupiter is a planet of wisdom and knowledge and such people have good knowledge about the construction of the home or any other structure or roads or bridges and they could even be real estate lawyers as Cancer is a sign that represents the real estate industry and Jupiter is a planet of law and 9th house is also the law. Jupiter in the 9th house is also extremely good for foreign travel.
