Positive Traits/Impact

Rahu provides fuel (of ambition) that can make the natives pioneer in the field of philosophy and religion. These natives can become religious scholars, philosopher, priest, professors in higher education, temple manager, ritualist and so on. Their belief and values are unconventional yet inspiring. They want to master any specific spiritual and secular knowledge and move on to become either some big Gurus or academic persons with immense knowledge of their subject. Some of them may even get into grand religious movements of a ‘global’ level and move on to become eminent persons in that organisation. However, they do not always practice what they preach. At times, these natives misuse their religious knowledge to gain privileges in life.

The natives’ fortune also depends on the effect of Rahu in the 9th house. So, fortune will be very strongly influenced by the alignment of the Rahu. If Rahu is well placed, the natives may be very fortunate. But if Rahu is not well placed, the natives may have to incur serious misfortune. Rahu in the 9th house Vedic astrology makes the natives go for higher education. They may become very knowledgable. However, there is also a possibility that their vast knowledge may become a reason for confusion.

Negative Traits/Impact:

The natives of Rahu in the ninth house may not necessarily practice what they preach while reaching heights in religion. They may simply want fame and recognition even at the cost of basic ethics, which is so very fundamental even in this religious life. Thus, some of these natives may move on to become fraudulent gurus and saints. It’s not that they are not spiritual. However, the desire for recognition may become stronger in their life.

Well, the 9th house also stands for father. So, when Rahu occupies the 9th house, it may cause misunderstanding between the native and his father. Badly placed Rahu may cause health problems for the natives’ father. The natives’ father may suffer from incurable disease. In some extreme cases, their father may have a short life span. Besides, the natives don’t get any profit from their father. Besides, the placement of Rahu in 9th house may be favourable for love marriage.

However, there is another angle to Rahu’s presence in the 9th house. The 9th house is the ‘Dharma Trikona’. When Rahu occupies the 9th house, natives may not have faith in God. They may even turn atheistic and start criticising God. On the other hand, if Rahu is well placed in the 9th house (other planetary influences are good or even okay), then the evil influence of Rahu will be less pronounced. Then certain vices, etc may stay latent in the natives’ mind and they may not come out.

The presence of Rahu in the 9th house may also make the natives harsh and rude in communication (because Ketu is simultaneously present in the 3rd house of communication). The natives may get involved in immoral habits. They may also do wicked things because the presence of Rahu in 9th house may also aspect and impact other houses, like the 1st house (regarding nature), 5th house (regarding mentality) and the 3rd house (regarding action).

The presence of Rahu in the 9th house may also impact the children of the natives. Besides, Rahu can also aspect the 5th house and further influence the children of natives. On the whole, Rahu in 9th house is not good for children. Rahu’s problems can be solved by appropriate remedies.
