What if 9th lord is in 5th house? (Vedic Astrology)



There are several possibilities with the 9th lord in the 5th house and let’s discuss according to the ascendant of the native.

1) Aries Ascendant: For an Aries ascendant Jupiter rules the 9th house and it will fall in the sign of Leo in the 5th house. This placement is extremely good to make a lot of foreign trips as the 5th house is 9th from the 9th house and so 5th house is the higher self of 9th house according to the Bhavat Bhavam concept in Vedic Astrology. Now, since the 9th house is the house of long-distance journeys and since the 5th house is the higher self of 9th house it means the 5th house is the house of foreign countries journeys and that is the reason this placement is good for foreign travel but most probably the travel will happen in Jupiter dasa or anterdasa or even pratyantradasa but transits must also be favorable for that such as Jupiter aspecting the ascendant lord or the 1st house in transit, or Jupiter transiting through the 1st house itself.

National and international level sports players often have this placement as they need to move from one country to another country in order to participate in different sports events (including athletics). But this is more so possible if the 5th lord Sun is placed in the 1st house in the sign of Aries as Aries is a major sign of sports.

Cinematographers, such as filmmakers, are also quite often seen from this placement and these people also need to move from one country to another country or one city to another city for their film shooting. If the 5th lord Sun is placed in the sign of Gemini in the 3rd house then this is more so possible. Aries ascendant natives, in general, are physically very active as Mars rules their ascendant as Mars is a planet of energy and willpower and good Mars is a must for sports.

With this placement, the higher education (as 9th house is higher education) of the native could also be completed in a foreign country and people like doctors who get their degree from some foreign institute often have this placement as Leo is also a sign of light and X-rays use light and X-rays are used in the medical field but the 5th lord Sun must be placed in the sign of Virgo in the 6th house for a medical career.

The 6th house is the major house of diseases while Leo is a sign of vitality and it also represents our liver in the body. When vitality is low in our body the body becomes weak and, in that case, self-esteem is low in the person and that is the reason Leo sign is important for health. People with Jupiter in Leo have very good health as Jupiter is the spiritual strength within us.

People like singers and stage performers may also have this placement of > Jupiter in 5th house in the sign of Leo but this is more so possible if the 5th lord Sun is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 4th house as Cancer is a sign of expressing your emotions which is what you do when you sing or perform on the stage for acting or dancing or modeling. People involved in fashion and modeling may also have this placement and this is more so possible if the 5th lord Sun is placed in the sign of Gemini in the 3rd house as Gemini is a sign of marketing and advertising and Leo represents the brands.

There are many TV anchors and YouTubers who speak about the financial markets such as the stock and currency markets and they may also have this placement and this is more so possible if the 5th lord Sun is placed in the sign of Aquarius in the 11th house. This is because Aquarius is a sign of distribution and the Sun is also a planet of wealth (finances) and so people like fund managers and financial analysts may also have this placement.

2) Taurus Ascendant: For a Taurus ascendant, Saturn rules the 9th house and it will fall in the sign of Virgo when placed in the 5th house. For this placement, you can read this article > Saturn in 5th house for Taurus Ascendant as this is exactly the same.

3) Gemini Ascendant: For a Gemini Ascendant, Saturn rules the 9th house and it will fall in the sign of Libra when placed in the 5th house. This is the best placement for people who are trading in commodity markets and stock markets as Libra is a sign of trade and the 5th house is the house of speculation. 9th house and 5th house both are houses of speculation (or gambling) as both are higher self of each other. 9th house is the higher self of 5th house and vice versa. The 9th house is 5th from the 5th house so it is the higher self of the 5th house according to the Bhavat Bhavam concept of Vedic Astrology.

If Jupiter is placed in the 9th house in the sign of Aquarius then you could also become a fund manager with this placement and then you can invest people’s money in the financial markets. The sign of Aquarius represents the public and the 9th house is the house of luck and so you play with people’s luck when the 9th lord is placed in the 5th house as 5th house is the house of playing whether you play with money (gambling) or you play with the sports equipment.

People like teachers, professors, sports players, sports referees, and sports coaches can also be seen from this placement. People running coaching centers to prepare them for various competitive exams can also be seen from this placement. This is because the 9th house is the house of higher education and the 5th house is the training or practice for higher education. Saturn or the sign of Aquarius represents a team (or a group) and Libra is a sign of resolving disputes and so here it becomes resolving disputes in a team which is nothing but sports referee or sports coach as 5th house is also the house of playing and playing is involved in sports also. Team leaders and stock advisors may also have this placement. People who are into employee management or a board member may also have this placement.

4) Cancer Ascendant: For a Cancer ascendant, Jupiter rules the 9th house and it will fall in the sign of Scorpio when placed in the 5th house. For this you can read my article > Jupiter in 5th house for Cancer Ascendant as this is just the same.

5) Leo Ascendant: For a Leo ascendant Mars rules the 9th house and it will fall in the sign of Sagittarius when placed in the 5th house. For this you can read the article on my site > Mars in 5th house for Leo Ascendant.

6) Virgo Ascendant: For a Virgo ascendant, Venus rules the 9th house and it will fall in the sign of Capricorn when placed in the 5th house. This placement is really good for people who are into fun and entertainment such as music, dance, singing, acting, etc and such natives will travel a lot during Venus dasa or anterdasa or pratyantradasa for the stage performance. The 9th lord in the 5th house, as I mentioned before, is a very powerful placement for travel. The travel could be within the country or even foreign countries as 9th house is the house of long-distance journeys.

All the musical instruments are represented by the sign of Capricorn or Saturn as they are made of iron or steel and anything made of iron and steel is represented by the sign of Capricorn or Saturn. Now when a planet like Venus is placed in the sign of Capricorn then actually the sign of Capricorn becomes the sign of musical instruments as Venus is a planet of enjoyment and playing musical instruments is nothing but enjoyment (sensual pleasures). That is the reason music teachers are quite often seen from this placement as 9th house represents the teachers and Gurus and 5th house is the house of education and training.

But Venus also represents the currency and financial assets such as the stocks (shares) and so people involved in currency trading and stock trading may also have this placement. People who teach web design, graphic design, web programming, app development, etc can also be seen from this placement. In other words, people working in the field of IT (information technology) may also have this placement. This is because Venus represents websites and apps and Capricorn is a sign of automation. All the software and apps are nothing but automation.

Many people market and advertise food processing machines and they may also have this placement. Also, there are people who are giving training and education on the use of machines that are meant for beauty, hairdressing, hair styling, fashion, food processing, etc and such people can also be seen from this placement. People studying fashion technology and brand management are most commonly seen from this placement.

7) Libra Ascendant: For a Libra ascendant, Mercury rules the 9th house and it will fall in the sign of Aquarius when placed in the 5th house. This is again the placement for teachers, professors, announcers at the radio and television, speakers in media such as TV anchors and YouTubers, public speakers, actors and actresses, singers, etc. When the sign of Gemini falls on the 9th house it means long-distance communication as the 9th house is the house of something that is long-distance. When we announce or speak something in media then that voice or message reaches people at distant locations and that is what long-distance communication is.

Here Mercury is placed in the sign of Aquarius which is a sign of distribution through a network and so here the communication passes through a network to reach millions of people which is usually done through a microphone. You might have seen people announcing at railway stations or airports about the arrival and departure of trains and airplanes and their voice reaches the public and Aquarius is a sign that represents the public (Mercury is placed in Aquarius) and so these announcers can also be seen from this placement.

Sports commentators can also be seen from this placement as they are also announcers and their voices reach the masses through a network. Here Mercury is placed in the 5th house and the 5th house is also the house of fun and entertainment (including sports) and that is the reason people doing fun with their communication (such as comedians and actors and actresses) may also have this placement as their voice also reaches to the masses or the audience. People who are marketing and advertising through their websites can also be seen from this placement as the 5th house is also the house of increasing name and fame (promotion) as Sun is a planet of name and fame. Mass communication or mass marketing is the major theme of this placement.

8) Scorpio Ascendant: For a Scorpio Ascendant, Moon rules the 9th house and it will fall in the sign of Pisces when placed in the 5th house. With this placement, either the mind of the native is spiritual or the mind is always into recreational activities and such natives often you will find traveling for recreational activities such as picnic, hiking, trekking, mountaineering, skydiving, bungee jumping, parachute jumping, scuba diving, windsurfing, sea sports, swimming, ice skating, boating, etc.

This is because the 5th house is the house of recreational activities. During the dasa or anterdasa or pratyantradasa of Moon the native may travel for some kind of recreational activities or sports as mentioned above. People like marine biologists and fighter pilots may also have this placement. Marine engineers or people working in the marine industry may also have this placement as the sign of Pisces is also a sign that represents the sea. Fishermen can also have this placement.

People who are into the marketing and advertising of sea products may also have this placement. People who are into occult science and paranormal may also have this placement. Spiritual healers such as people practicing Ayurveda, herbal healing, tarot card reading, acupuncture, crystal healing, chakra healing, yoga, meditation, martial arts, reiki healing, astrology, palmistry, singing, dancing, music, etc can also be seen from this placement. Health care professionals are most commonly seen from this placement as Pisces is a sign of healing.

9) Sagittarius Ascendant: For a Sagittarius Ascendant, Sun rules the 9th house and it will fall in the sign of Aries in the 5th house. Here the Sun is exalted and this is again the placement for sportsmen and athletes. This is because Sun is a planet of fun and entertainment and Aries is an aggressive or energetic sign so it becomes fun and entertainment through energy and efforts which is nothing but sports as the 5th house is also the house of sports or recreational activities.

Aries is a sign of motion (as Aries is energy and energy always moves) and Sun is a planet of heat and light and so people involved in the motion of heat and light (such as thermal energy) can also be seen from this placement and these could be the teacher or professor of science (especially physics as physics is a subject of motion). People like mechanical or electronics & electrical engineers may have this placement. Sun in the 5th house is however not good for the digestive system as Sun is a hot planet and here a hot planet is placed in the house of heat as Sun is heat and Sun originally rules the 5th house in the default zodiac. But this is more so possible if Mars is debilitated in the 8th house.

This placement is again good for financial gains through stock market investments and trading as Sun represents the wealth and Sun rules the 9th house of treasure and it is placed in the 5th house of speculation and gambling. Fund managers or financial service providers are also seen from this placement especially if the 5th lord Mars is placed in the sign of Taurus in the 6th house. But Sun is also a planet of health care and so health care professionals such as doctors and nurses can also be seen from this placement.

10) Capricorn Ascendant: For a Capricorn ascendant, Mercury rules the 9th house and it will fall in the sign of Taurus when placed in the 5th house. Mercury is a planet that controls our brain (and Moon is mind) and nervous system and Taurus is a sign that represents our eating appetite and Taurus also represents all the body parts on the face. So, people studying or acquiring higher knowledge about the diseases or problems associated with ears, nose, mouth, eating disorders or stomach disorders, brain, neurological disorders, nervous systems, etc are generally seen from this placement.

So basically, health care professionals such as doctors and nurses are generally seen from this placement. Even dentists can also be seen from this placement. Teachers of subjects like science (such as biology) can also be seen from this placement. But teachers of finances and accounting can also be seen from this placement as Mercury is a planet of calculations and Taurus is a sign of finances and food.

People working with food hygiene and food preservation may also have this placement. If Sun and Mercury are placed in the 5th house and if the 5th lord Venus is debilitated in the 9th house then eating disorders are also likely as Venus in Virgo often gives problems related to eating such as vomiting especially if Mars is also debilitated in the chart. People involved in food health care research are most commonly seen from this placement. Research scientists may also have this placement especially those involved in health care research. As mentioned before, the 9th lord in the 5th house is always good for foreign travel.

11) Pisces Ascendant: For a Pisces ascendant native, Mars rules the 9th house and it will fall in the sign of Cancer when placed in the 5th house. You can read this article on my site > Mars in 5th house for Pisces ascendant as this is exactly the same.
