What if Rahu is in Cancer in 9th house for Scorpio Ascendant? (Vedic Astrology)
Rahu in Cancer :You are here
Cancer is really the sign of nurturing (along with emotions and feelings). So Rahu in the sign of Cancer will get the native obsessed (as Rahu is obsession) about nurturing others with knowledge and wisdom as 9th house is of knowledge and wisdom as Jupiter rules the 9th house in the default zodiac. This placement of Rahu is usually found in the birth chart of teachers, gurus, priests, lawyers and news anchors.
For example, what does a News Anchor do? They communicate and present all the latest information and news (of the 8th house) and that is how they nurture (in the 9th house). The 8th house is actually the house of sudden events. When anything suddenly happens in the world it comes from the 8th house and all the information and news regarding such events of the 8th house are then presented in the 9th house through nurturing.
That is the reason Cancer sign falls on the 9th house and the sign of Gemini falls on the 8th house as you communicate the things of the 8th house (sudden events) and thus you nurture with the information in the 9th house. Now when Rahu is placed in the 9th house the native gets obsessed about such kind of nurturing as Rahu is our life's mission. Whichever house and sign the Rahu is placed that house and sign becomes your life's mission.
Plz note: To become a News Anchor is just a possibility unless other planets in the birth chart are supportive. Here I am just giving a general interpretation of what is likely with this placement of Rahu in your birth chart. But if Jupiter, default ruler of the 9th house, is placed in the 8th house along with Mercury and Mars and if Saturn is placed in the 3rd house then becoming a News Anchor is actually possible.
Also, when you nurture you do it with some Karma (work). If you are doing the nurturing of giving information and knowledge of the 9th house then you cannot do it unless you communicate or write and that is the reason the sign of Capricorn falls on the 3rd house (just opposite to the 9th house) of communication and writing because Capricorn is a sign of Karma (doing work) as it is ruled by Saturn. So, in the 3rd - 9th house axis if nurturing is the 9th house (giving knowledge and information) then Karma is the 3rd house (of communication and writing). So communication and giving information go hand-in-hand.
That is the reason teachers are also seen from this placement of Rahu (in the sign of Cancer in the 9th house) as they do the same job of nurturing with the knowledge and information of the 9th house especially if Jupiter (default ruler of 9th house) is placed in the sign of Pisces in the 5th house as 5th house represents children and students and also 5th house is basic education. But if Jupiter is placed in the 9th house itself then you could be a spiritual Guru as 9th house is also of Dharma and religion which the Gurus talk about.
Since here the nurturing is about giving information or knowledge (as Rahu is placed in the 9th house) so the mind will always think about collecting information and knowledge and then giving it through nurturing. This is because Moon or the sign of Cancer also represents our mind. So it becomes also important to look at the position of Moon in the birth to know what type of information and knowledge the mind is collecting.
But it is not always so that only teachers and gurus are nurturing through communication by giving knowledge and information but there are also many people who write information on a website and thus giving the knowledge through their website and if there is a lot of traffic, from search engines like Google, to that website then that website could even make them money. So this placement of Rahu is also valid for people running websites and youtube channels online but this is only possible if other planets in the birth chart are also supportive. Also, the 9th house is Google search and so it is entirely possible.
If Rahu is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 9th house then the location of Moon (9th house lord) will give a better idea as the Moon will tell where the nurturing is going.
Case 1: If Rahu is in 9th house but if Moon (lord of 9th house) is placed in the 10th house then here 9th lord is placed in the 10th house which is just 2 places away. In this case, Moon will be placed in the sign of Leo in the 10th house and this shows you could serve in the fun and entertainment department of an organization as 10th house represents the corporate world and sign of Leo is about fun and entertainment. You might have heard about corporate entertainment and this is what it is. You could be an adviser for corporate entertainment with this placement of Moon but other planets in the birth chart need to support.
Case 2: If Rahu is in 9th house but if Moon (lord of 9th house) is placed in the 11th house then here 9th lord is placed in the 11th house which is 3 places away. Here the Moon will be placed in the sign of Virgo in the 11th house. The retailers in medical stores (whether online or offline) usually have this kind of placement of Rahu and Moon as they communicate and give knowledge or information (9th house) about their medicines to the public or the customers as 11th house is the house of public or customers and being 3rd from the 9th house means advertising and marketing. Retailers in medical stores market their products only when they deal with the customers and Virgo is a sign of health and diseases. There are many more possibilities but I am giving just one possibility for the placement of Moon in different houses.
Case 3: If Rahu is in 9th house but if Moon (lord of 9th house) is placed in the 12th house then here 9th house lord is placed in the 12th house which is 4 places away. Here the Moon will be placed in the sign of Libra in the 12th house of isolation and spirituality. You could be in Arts and designing with this placement as 9th house is also publishing and its lord is seated in the sign of Libra which is also a sign of creativity along with the 12th house. When you paint or do art or write something on a website or a piece of paper it is nothing but publishing. But you could also be in some profession where you need to resolve disputes of other people.
Case 4: If Rahu is in 9th house but if Moon (lord of 9th house) is placed in the 1st house then here the 9th house lord is placed in the 1st house which is 5 places away. Here the Moon will be placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 1st house. Here you feel a lot of turbulence in the mind as Moon is debilitated in the sign of Scorpio. But you could be a teacher of astrology or occult science with this placement of Moon. You may also publish content related to occult science on a website or youtube with this placement. But you could also run a gambling related website or you could be an adviser for gambling in general or sports betting.
Case 5: If Rahu is in 9th house but if Moon (lord of 9th house) is placed in the 2nd house then here the 9th house lord is placed in the 2nd house which is 6 places away. Here the Moon will be placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 2nd house. With this kind of placement, you may fight for injustice. You could be an adviser for legal matters related to family or even corporate. You may also publish content related to animals and planets or nature in general with this placement. You could also run a food or luxury items related blog with this placement. Your mind could also be into the investigation with this placement of Moon.
Case 6: If Rahu is in 9th house but if Moon (lord of 9th house) is placed in the 3rd house then here the 9th house lord is placed in the 3rd house which is 7 places away. Here the Moon will be placed in the sign of Capricorn. This kind of Moon can make you very dominating and power and status hungry but not for everyone. They are constantly looking for promotion in their job and they feel frustrated when it doesn't happen. With this placement, you could be in the customer care over the internet as 3rd house is the world of media and the internet is one of them. You could also be on the post of a manager with this placement. It could be that you guide people under your belt or the employees.
Case 7: If Rahu is in 9th house but if Moon (lord of 9th house) is placed in the 4th house then here the 9th house lord is placed in the 4th house which is 8 places away. Here the Moon will be placed in the sign of Aquarius. Here your mind could be in players of any sports as the sign of Aquarius also represents the collectivity of players in sports. So you could be a sports coach who advises the players or you could even be a sports commentator. You could also be someone who is busy in making networks for a website or you may be into multi-level-marketing. You could also be a ticket checker at places where there is an audience for sports or cinema or other fun and entertainment events. You could also be a network engineer or in engineering in general such as a software engineer.
Case 8: If Rahu is in 9th house but if Moon (lord of 9th house) is placed in the 5th house then here the 9th house lord is placed in the 5th house which is 9 places away. Here the Moon will be placed in the sign of Pisces. This placement of Moon could even make you a poet, writer, songwriter, scriptwriter, spiritual healer (such as an ayurvedic doctor), musical instrument player, singer, stage performer, psychic, etc. Moon in the sign of Pisces makes you very intuitive and spiritual and spirituality is expressed through music and dance. You may also be into meditation and self-realization.
