Intellectual, Idealistic, Ethical


The 9th House is about long explorative journeys, both mental and physical. It rules our attitudes and opinions on all topics and our efforts to understand complex issues, including morals and ethics. It rules higher education, laws, philosophy, religion, and the type of wisdom we attain in this life. The 9th House relates to our experiences contributing to personal evolution and big-picture thinking.

The Sun in the 9th House is one of those placements where it is essential to know how the Sun is aspected within the chart to determine how the native will naturally respond. You may wish to find, understand, live and accept a higher ideal or philosophy. But, then again, you may be one who insists upon scientific proof before anything can be believed. You can be the far-sighted thinker, one of high ideals and tolerance of other people's views, or the dogmatic fanatic who just parrots what others have told you.

Generally, there is a quest for Truth and wisdom and a love of travel, not necessarily physical. You may have an aptitude for foreign languages and a love of foreign cultures and may possibly move to another country for an extended period of time.
