Mercury in 9th house in Cancer Sign: The Marine Career? Scorpio Ascendant (Vedic Astrology)



This article is also valid for > Mercury in Cancer sign for Scorpio ascendant

For a Scorpio ascendant, Mercury rules the 8th house and the 11th house and will fall in the sign of Cancer when placed in the 9th house. There are several possibilities with this placement and here are some of them.

1) Mercury is a planet that represents our hands & shoulders and Cancer is a sign that represents the water and 9th house is the house of exploration and so during the Mercury period you may do a lot of boating in the river or sea and boating is nothing but exploration as when you do the boating you explore the water or the sea. An oar is used for rowing a boat with hands and since Mercury’s aspect (while placed in the 9th house) will also be on the 3rd house in the sign of Capricorn so it will make sense for doing something with hands as Capricorn represents all the tools (such as oar) made of iron, steel, and wood and in the 3rd house, we work with hands. People involved in rowing sports may also have this placement. In the river or sea, there is a lot of turbulence in the water and for a Scorpio ascendant, Mercury also rules the 8th house of turbulence.

2) People like swimmers may also have this placement as swimmers also work with their hands in the water while swimming. People competing in sports swimming may also have this placement. So, during the Mercury period, you may also take to swimming. If Jupiter is also placed in the 9th house along with Mercury in the sign of Cancer, then you may even become a swimming coach as Jupiter is someone who guides. Usually, Sun and Mercury will be found in the same house (or just one house apart) in the birth chart and Sun is also a planet of recreational activities and so Sun is also a good placement in the 9th house in the sign of Cancer for swimming.

3) People who are fishermen can also be seen from this placement of > Mercury in the 9th house in the sign of Cancer as a fisherman also works with water and water animals like fish. They use their hands all the time in the water and Cancer is a sign that represents the water. The sign of Sagittarius falls on the 2nd house for a Scorpio ascendant and the 2nd house is also food and Sagittarius is a sign that represents nature or natural resources and so seafood business makes sense for a Scorpio ascendant native when Mercury is placed in the 9th house.

But this is more so possible if the 9th lord Moon is placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 2nd house. This could also be the placement for people who are vegetables and fruit sellers. People like farmers and gardeners may also have this placement as they also sprinkle water (the sign of Cancer is associated with water) in the crops and gardens with their hands and Sagittarius is a sign that represents the gardens and crops and Moon is placed in the sign of Sagittarius.

4) People who are into sea exploration may also have this placement of > Mercury in Cancer in the 9th house especially if the 9th lord Moon is placed in the sign of Pisces in the 5th house. The sign of Pisces represents the sea and the 5th house is the house of recreational activities. During the Mercury period and Moon sub-period, you may go for sea exploration or water expedition.

5) Mercury in Cancer in the 9th house is also good to become a naval architect especially if the 9th lord Moon is placed in the sign of Capricorn in the 3rd house. A naval architect is an engineer who is responsible for the designing, construction and repairing of boats, ships, and other marine vehicles. They may also work with merchant ships with the oil and gas tankers. Oil is also a liquid represented by the sign of Cancer. The sign of Capricorn is a sign of automation or machines and engineers make machines only. Ships and submarines are just the moving machines in the water.

6) People like hydrologists may also have this placement as they also work a lot with water. They study how water moves across and through the earth’s crust. A lifeguard can also be seen from this placement.

7) Many people spray chemicals to kill rodents and other small animals and even insects & pests and such people may also have their Mercury placed in the 9th house in the sign of Cancer and Moon being placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 1st house. Scorpio is a sign of killing and when you use insecticides and pesticides then you do that to kill deadly bugs that destroy the crops. Scorpio is also a sign that represents the chemicals and chemicals are sometimes used with water for spraying.

8) In the olden days, people who used to clean water wells were often seen from this placement. Nowadays water tank cleaning service providers and plumbers and also vehicle washing service providers can be seen from this placement as they also work with water a lot. People who are working with water sprinklers in the agricultural fields may also have this placement.

9) If Mercury is placed in the 9th house in the sign of Cancer but if the 9th lord Moon is placed in the sign of Aquarius in the 4th house, then dams & reservoirs civil engineers can be seen from this placement.

10) Mercury in Cancer in the 9th house is also good for singing or artistic career (such as painting) especially if the 9th lord Moon is placed in the sign of Taurus in Rohini Nakshatra in the 7th house.

11) If Rahu is placed in the 9th house along with Mercury and if the 9th lord Moon is placed in the 12th house in the sign of Libra in the Swati Nakshatra, then this is the best placement for foreign travel. Swati Nakshatra is quite known for foreign travels. People working in the field of information technology (IT) may have this placement. People selling online and doing export-import business may also have this placement.

12) If Mercury is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 9th house but if the 9th lord Moon is placed in the sign of Leo in the 10th house, then people who publish games, cartoon films, videos, etc over the internet can be seen from this placement. People who are publishing content on websites related to brand management and marketing may also have this placement. This is the because 9th house is the house of publishing and Leo is a sign of name & fame (promotion) and it is also a sign of brands.

Here the 9th lord is placed in the 10th house and so this is also a good placement for getting work from a foreign country or working for a multi-national company. People who are publishing videos and films on the digital platform are most commonly seen from this placement. But this career will happen when Mercury dasa and anterdasa will be running. The 10th house is a digital house or it is the house of automation. Many people make videos related to games and acting and they publish on platforms like youtube and they may also have this placement.

13) If Mercury is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 9th house but if the 9th lord Moon is placed in the sign of Virgo in the 11th house then this placement could give you a writing and publishing job in some health care organization as 11th house represents large organizations and Virgo is a sign of health care. But 11th house is also the world of the internet as the internet is a huge network as 11th house is also the house of networking and so you may also write and publish content over the internet on websites, apps, and software (information technology). You could also do writing jobs on freelancer sites with this placement. People writing and publishing about food hygiene may also have this placement.
