9th House

Abstract mind, morals, philosophy, law, and higher thinking, travel, and languages
How & where you relate to the wider world
Mental exploration?

The next 30° of sky that become visible over the eastern horizon from 16-18 hours after birth (or from the moment a chart is drawn up) is called the Ninth House. This house is counterpart to the house of “the familiar,” and is the house of “the foreign.” Called “Itineris” or “Journey” in Latin, this house is all about your connection to things farther away. That could mean people and places removed by distance or cultural/linguistic barriers, or lofty, far-off abstract concepts such as philosophy, morality, and religion. This house indicates how you relate to the wider world. Any planet that may occupy this house exerts its influence on your sense of higher thinking and your relationship with the exotic. If there are no planets in this house, it may indicate that you don’t spend a lot of conscious energy in this part of your life, that things in this sector flow without needing extra effort, or that you aren’t working on major life lessons in this area during your current lifetime.
