Good fortune in matters of owned property, homes and protective shelters, vehicles, personal and national security, patriotism, schooling and schoolteachers.

ability to care for one's parents in their nonage.
Excellent placement for a humanistic educator.
may be a schoolteacher, property manager, or work with transport vehicles.
The shad-ashtakya relationship of L-9 in 8th-from-9th requires a person of broadly philosophical nature (9) to engage with those of narrow, parochial nature (4).
Therefore the father may be not well settled (8th-from-4th = upheaval) in his job, and his unhappiness may emerge (8) in the home (4).
L-9 in bandhusthana may enjoy considerable real-estate and vehicle holdings.

L-9 in Bhava- 5
= L-9 in the wise, world-traveling, professorial 9th from swakshetra
politics, creativity, genius, literature, theatre, royalty, celebrity, speculation, games
A lucky placement for matters of celebrity, royalty, dramatic performance, politics, gamesmanship, gambling, children, and creative intelligence.
Exceptionally fortunate for success in political elections. Even a candidate with otherwise unattractive elements is well supported by this yoga.
If a strong placement such as Surya-uttama or L9-in-5-yuti-Rahu, fame via drama, politics and political philosophy.
Lord of 5th-from-5th in bhava-5
Splendid for children and grandchildren, politics, theatre, speculative business ventures, games and entertainments, and acts of divinely inspired genius.
May effectively counteract other prognoses of trouble regarding children.
A natural professor, theologian, preacher, and high-priest.
Brilliant at rituals and games.
Men well-suited to the role of Father.
L-9 in 5 = often possessed of Divine Confidence which is expressed in personal intelligence, in a highly individualized and bright fashion.
The lord of Guru's swabhava provides a beneficial influence in the natural Bhava- of Surya. Children are very fortunate and the native is blessed with many expressions of good luck and wisdom. Intelligence is expanded away from the selfish introspection of genius, outward to the greater cosmic setting.
Splendid placement for an authentic religious preacher, who can channel the divine intelligence in an accurate and inspired yet charismatically personalized way. Regardless of the vocation, this native is charismatic and abundantly blessed with confidence.
L-9 in 5 = philosophical involvement with the lover, who is an essential guide and a person of high awareness (barring a seriously flawed graha as L-9).
Romance is much heightened in this incarnation, with the lover(s) providing wise and brilliant support.
Literary and performance arts = brilliantly expressed in a highly individualistic, creative, and entitled but not selfish style.
L-9 in 5 may have a limited number of children but the children are very beneficial in one's life. Parent-child relationship tends to form more along student-teacher lines with less authoritarian approach and more a guru attitude.
Benefits wealth, religion, and general welfare. L-9 in bhava-5 is a karaka for great wealth. Enhances generosity and compassion.
L-9 = Surya in bhava-6 = theatre, politics
L-9 = Chandra in bhava-6 = protection shelter
L-9 = Mangala in bhava-6 = movement, warrior, bloodlines
L-9 = Budha in bhava-6 = ministry of service via writing, conversation, youth
L-9 = Guru in bhava-6 * multiple service ministries; many health issues
L-9 = Shani in bhava-6 = ministry of service to commoners, to the masses
L-9 in Bhava- 6 = L-9 in the dignified, responsible, governing 10th from swakshetra
Often the father must struggle with some variety of lifestyle imbalance (6) such as illness, poverty, a socially ostracized lifestyle, or a difficult divorce (if L-9 in 6 = Shukra, addictions).
Yet due to the dignity of L-9 in 10th-from-swakshetra, the father continues to work and provide for his family in a socially respectable (10th from) way.
Benefits Leadership roles in medicine, military, legal defense, , agriculture, loan-making, and in human services ministries.
The 10th angle represent material order, lawfulness, rank and position. Despite carrying the dharmic significance of ritual priesthood, the 10th-from-9th grants material manifestations not spiritual.
There may be other graha elsewhere in the nativity which grant spiritual guidance, but the 9th-from-10th = Ari Bhava is very much a bhava of social-material life specifically human-to-human argumentation, exploitation, and service.
With this placement it is vitally important to hear the call and serve a cause.
Potential for quarrels with the father, who may be a sort of a criminal, a drunkard or addicted to some substance or unseemly behavior - or possibly a distinguished hypocrite.
Predicted unfavorable outcome may be much improved via beneficial graha. Father need not be decrepit. However the father-son relationship is adversarial and accusatory.
For a woman, quarrels with her husband; and for either gender, accusations and arguments with men in authority roles.
However one called to high leadership in a ministry of service will find that these quarrels amount to very little in contrast to the magnitude of their service to the victim class.
In the best cases, one is acutely aware of having been called into the service of the Divine (9) and one places ones leadership capabilities utterly at That One's disposal, regardless of the material consequences.
Bodes poorly for childhood relationship to one's father.
Generally inauspicious for faith in religion, and dealings with priests. Bodes relatively well for the father's career and the native's career also.
If a malefic+ L-9 in 10th-from-swakshetra will damage access to rituals that ease communion with the spirits. Limits faith in religious teachings and in the guru. Induces a common-sense view of moral action based on a pragmatic view of competition for scarce resources and a mandate for personal choice that is not swayed by glamorous appearances or sentimental hopes.
Very much a realist in matters of religion and truth. The father's career is improved according to the dignity of the graha.
Whether malefic or benefic, the father's career is experienced as conflict for the native himself. (Naturally the father's career deprives the father of time to attend to his children, 10th-from-9th is always the native 's conflicted bhava-6.)This native will not follow in his father's career.
When L-9 is a benefic, native cherishes a positive hope that evil either is not real or can be easily overcome. Overcompensation behaviors in religion. He wants to put a positive spin on the negative aspects of human life and to create for himself a confirmed spirituality.
With L9 in toxic bhava-6 he has no trust in priests and returns compulsively to the realities of exploitation and victimization. A child raised without viable faith who seeks adult religious conversion. Lifetime struggle with the fact of human evil. May have a tortured career in theology or ethics yet deprived of authentic ritual * worth-ship * worship due to inner conflict and mistrust.
If L-9 = Budha or Surya, will rationalize religion - reducing it to ethics or civil custom.
Materially focused in 10th-from-swakshetra, the L-9 in Ripu Bhava materializes world cultures and travel, enlightening discussions with social leaders from diverse cultural backgrounds, and often a highly visible international career.
L-9 in 6 = publicly associated with arguments regarding exploitation of the vulnerable, illegal acts, addictions, illnesses, disloyalty, toxicity, and disease - but these matters are handled in a priestly fashion.
Blessings via devoted servants, the underclass, animals, the mother's relatives, physicians, military UK-Prince, environmentalist Charles Windsor, all aspects of medical practices and medicines
A priestly approach to human imbalances of poverty and sickness
a natural understanding of ministry toward the perpetuity of conflict in social relationships.
In times of war, bhagya L-9 in 6 in the governing 10th from swakshetra, suggests that the native will be on the winning side
A theology of extreme humility and service, preaching the reality of human weakness - and especially sensitive to the weakness (imbalance, 6) of priests (9):
Conflict with orthodox ideology
Conflict with professors, priests, preachers, theologians, father-figures. University culture seems too effete, too elite. One goes out from the ivory tower into the gutters, serving as a leader of movements, a legitimator of the acts of the poor, the criminal and the diseased.
Trouble via studies in theory, philosophy and religion. "theos" in Greek = "broad view". This materialistic native insists on practical cures for the material miseries, deals in cash money, "gets real".
Not normally an adherent of religious orthodoxy
yet one may be a profound historical agent who guides (9) and teaches in a time or scene of intense conflict
One becomes a priest of a new social order.
Despite one's conscious wish to conform to the orthodox teachings of one's day, it becomes clear during the present lifetime that one is inevitably positioned in an adversarial angle toward the priestly caste and religious jargon of the day.
The predominant belief system, including the great philosophies of law, prescribed methods of worship, efficacious rituals, and sacred texts, are actually the agent of much conflict in one's life.
The position is perplexing. Often the native has been chosen for a special destiny which specifically requires antagonism toward the existing belief system.
L-9 occupies 10th-from-swakshetra; a dignified angle. One obtains spiritual legitimacy in the eyes of many, as one is heard speaking a higher truth than the mere ritualists and self-protective officiants of bhava-9.
Yet one's work is difficult, and the consolation of socially approved religion would be helpful. the native may wonder constantly if one has lost one's moral bearings.
The practice of medicine in particular shows a level of karmic reality which negates the 'pollyanna' preaching of many traditions.
Similarly those who work with large-scale social afflictions like broken economies that create poverty and false promises which generate fraud become distinctly aware of the corruption of the orthodox priesthood.
Das comments = "The lord of the 9 is in 6, and the lord of the 9 has at least one negative placement attribute."
"The wealth of your father may be affected by thievery. "

L-9 = Chandra in bhava-7
L-9 = Mangala in bhava-7
L-9 = Budha in bhava-7
L-9 = Guru in bhava-7
L-9 = Shukra in bhava-7 * dhanakaraka Shukra in 11th-from-9th
L-9 in Bhava- 7= L-9 in the gainful, networked, goal-achieving 11th-from-swakshetra
Benefits the achievement of large-scale social participation goals esp those oriented to economic opportunity and network inclusion + extension.
Brings consideration of religious beliefs and duties of ceremonial priesthood into the terms of the marriage contract.
L-9 in 7 may marry for philosophical or ideological reasons, and there is more support for remaining in an unsatisfying marriage in order to follow one's orthodox (9) religious convictions. The spouse also is religiously or spiritually inclined, and shared beliefs can be the finest fruit of the marriage.
Lord of 3rd-from-7 occupies 7
The siblings of the spouse, particularly the immediate younger sibling, may play a prominent role in the marriage communications.
Professional (10th from 10th) = well disposed to perform 'ensemble' work, such as sharing (7) information (3) within an interactive consulting group.
A "very airy" combination. It is an excellent placement for dramatists who created an interactive, cooperative mental environment of interconnected narratives; esp those with a pronounced focus on portraying the "relationship narrative". Harmonious relations in most varieties of teamwork.
Generally the effect of this sibling upon the union will be favorable due to the generally good auspice of bhava-9; however look into the details of dharma bhava for the nativity at hand to determine whether the lord of 9 is a busy-body (3) or a wise-one (9).
The partner has strong religious wisdom or philosophical sensibilities (9), and in general the spouse will carry good fortune which attends that unique skill of domain-9: having the right assets available at the right time.
The father is a diplomat, advocate, attorney, deal-maker, negotiator, bargainer.
In particular the spouse has favorable writing and linguistic communication skills. The couple will enjoy traveling and learning about world cultures.
L-9 = Surya in bhava-8
L-9 = Chandra in bhava-8
L-9 = Mangala in bhava-8
L-9 = Budha in bhava-8
L-9 = Guru in bhava-8 * many transformations, much identity change
L-9 = Shukra in bhava-8
L-9 = Shani in bhava-8 * long life
L-9 in Bhava- 8 = L-9 in the dissolving, eroded, astral-particulate, imaginative 12th-from-swakshetra
Benefits all types of mystical trauma healing, Spirit-Guide communication, healing by prayer, religious retreat, transformation of identity, peeling back of shells and veils, recovery-discovery-uncovering of astral reality
Healing via Transformation of Beliefs
The good fortune of bhava-9 enters the secretive, camouflaged realm of sudden, unexpected, forced changes in the randhrasthana.
Graha which are born into randhra bhava become subject to the fast spinning of the cycle (8) of self-destruction and rebirth (8). The speed of change-of-form is often terrifying.
Matters of the bhava ruled by graha in 8 are controlled by this fast-turning, re-cycling, identity-destroying and regenerating hidden life force.
Effects of graha in 8 are radical, frightening, secretive, occult, mysterious, hidden, shocking magical, rejuvenating and changing-changing-changing.
Father's life is typically somewhat distant (12) from the native. Father may have a dissolute personality, or perhaps his interests are highly confidential.
Father and fatherhood is dissolved into invisible identity-dissolving (12th-from), mysterious hidden (8) activities.
However if L-9 is well configured, the hidden father may nevertheless provide a considerable inheritance.
Orthodoxy (9) is dissolved (12th-from) when L-9 enters 8.
The native may proclaim a new religious approach.
Shocking, healing, transformative effects of religious belief - often deeply unsettling to habitual religionists
L-9 rules 6th-from-4th = adversarial (6) to customary habits (4)
L-9 = Chandra in bhava-9
L-9 = Mangala in bhava-9
L-9 = Budha in bhava-9
L-9 = Shukra in bhava-9
L-9 = Shani in bhava-9 * conforming doctrine
L-9 in Bhava- 9 = L-9 in the moving, active, body-identified 1st from swakshetra
L-9 in 9 = expansive and generous with a broad worldview
Blessed with an abundance of vital energies in the flesh-body
Generally not harmful for L-9 Budha, L-9 Chandra, or L-9 Shukra, but papagraha in the role of L-9 in 9 can be oppressive and Guru may suffer inflated importance of one's own beliefs.
Budha-9 swakshetra can be excessively detailed or narrowly defined argument in the attempt to fully articulate higher philosophical concepts. Such a native may produce abundant writing or verbiage which is often much ado about nothing.
Mangala-9 facilitates the native's own energetic capacity for innovation, invention, pioneering, engineering, new ideas-in-action. The downside is often a military, dominating, or aggressive father karako bhavo nashto featuring a paternal character marked by impatience, selfish acts, boasting or swaggering behaviors. Generally unfortunate for the father's well-being, and often signifies an early demise of the birth father. Potential indications of clinical narcissistic disorder (NPD) in the father-figures such as guru, preacher, professor, or religious indoctrinator.
L-9 = Chandra in bhava-10
L-9 = Budha in bhava-10
L-9 = Guru in bhava-10
L-9 = Shukra in bhava-10
L-9 = Shani in bhava-10
L-9 in Bhava- 10 = L-9 in the acquisitive, knowledgeable 2nd-from-swakshetra.
May produce a leader who brings value to the role and they earn well in the process. Win-win. Very broad spiritual viewpoint if the graha is auspicious.
Treats public leadership as a moral responsibility, brings compassion and philosophical awareness to the executive position.
Understands both the letter of the law and the spirit of the law.
Presuming that the dharmapathi is well disposed, L-9 in 10 karmadharma-adhipathi yoga is generally viewed as a wise (9) leader (10) due to globalized perspective and respect (10) given to religion (9) evidenced in leadership roles.
A similar Ketu problem-set afflicted the hypocritical governance behavior of Pakistan-PM 1988-90; 1993-96 Benazir Bhutto. Although professing the most devout adherence to the principles of Islam, she was accused of involvement in scandalous embezzlement (Budha, accounting).
During periods of L-9, as lord of the dissolving 12th from 10th, L-9 pulls away the energy needed to maintain the social reputation and the positions held at the top of the social hierarchy.
the Vimshottari period of the L-9 can unfortunately be rather unhelpful for maintenance of highest public respect.
Periods of L-9 may indicate a fall from high position due spiritually to the native's need for a period of sanctuary and private reflection.
It may look unfortunate from the materialistic exterior view but from the inside these era of withdrawal from the work roster of public duties can be a very good thing.
Excellent for Vrishabha natives.
One teaches not by words but rather via the regular pattern of one's public actions.
Good fortune (9) through leadership responsibility.
Brings preaching and religious perspective (9) into the realm of corporate business (10)
"If Dhana's lord is in Karma Bhava,
the native will be libidinous, honorable, and learned;
one will have many wives and much wealth,
but one will be bereft of filial happiness."
L-9 = Surya in bhava-11
L-9 = Chandra in bhava-11
L-9 = Mangala in bhava-11
L-9 = Budha in bhava-11
L-9 = Guru in bhava-11
L-9 = Shukra in bhava-11
L-9 = Shani in bhava-11
L-9 in Bhava- 11 = L-9 in the administrative, commercial, evangelistic3rd from swakshetra = dhana yoga
Gains of income (11) from preaching, from patriarchy (pitri), from philosophy and ideology, from the father (9).
The father and his profile (9) may be a source of income (11).
Considerable patrimony if the graha is well disposed.
from ideological and indoctrinating behaviors (9)
from teaching religious and philosophical subjects
from teaching in university or temple regardless of the precise subject.
L-9 = Surya in bhava-12
L-9 = Chandra in bhava-12
L-9 = Mangala in bhava-12
L-9 = Budha in bhava-12
L-9 = Guru in bhava-12 * many meditations, much sanctuary
L-9 = Shukra in bhava-12
L-9 = Shani in bhava-12
L-9 in Bhava- 12= L-9 in the customary, rhythmic, habitual 4th from swakshetra
Favors teaching (4) of the Old Ways (4) of religious knowing. However to be recognized, Shani-12 must teach in a "sheltered instruction" environment such as a retreat center, intensive residential programs, hospitals, refugee camps, in distant lands, teaching directly on the astral plane during dream-time.
Fear-mongering Shani-12 can signify "negative fantasies" which verge on the paranoid.
Transmission of methods of divination and imagination.
Teachers of charity, compassion, and self-dissolution. Private study of sacred scripture.
May bring the full fruition of philanthropy.
Abundance of Private (non-material) Blessings
Weakens the father's influence, often by the device of physical distance. Dad is dreamy, dissolved, only appears when the child is sleeping, or the child only sees him in the dream realm. Dad may have foreign assignments or be otherwise "far away".
Father is lost in fantasy pursuits, talking with spirit guides and ancestors. Or, stationed in a foreign land, inaccessible to the child who needs his presence. Or, father's vital energy is dispersed in bedroom affairs, clandestine operations, sanctuary, hospital, ashrama, dormitory.
The professor, the preacher, and the pandita all suffer a similar fate. No matter how famous the father may be to the public audience, no matter how high his visibility or reputation, no matter how wealthy or important he might be to the government, what extraordinary books or sermons the father might have written -- he does not vitalize the child.
To the child, the father is a phantom, appearing in a hazy field of dispersed and nebulous particles.
Mother might need to become both father and mother to the child who has L-9 in 12. If the mother (child's Chandra) is ill disposed, the child grows up with negligent or absent parents.
Dissolves the benefits which might have been delivered
L-9 in the vague and dreamy 12th from swakshetra
The lord of Guru's natural 9th Bhava- goes into Guru's natural 12th Bhava-s.
Religious practice and philosophical wisdom delivery is privatized.
Emphasis on meditation and private prayer, personal readings and private philosophizing.
Reduces public piety and ceremonial observance, but may deepen the intuitive communication with the divine if the L-9 is strong.
Das comment on "The lord of the 9 is in 12."
"Pursues spiritual liberation.
You are generous and spend money for others' welfare
You have to work hard for what you get.
"The lord of the 9 is in 12, and the lord of the 9 has at least one beneficial placement attribute."
"You may lose your wealth. "
"Policy of Kindness" 14th Dalai Lama Tenzing Gyatso
What if we feel an unbearable compassion for the suffering of other beings -- especially animals, because it is often more obvious -- yet we have not developed the wisdom to deal with it properly?
This is all the more reason why, now that you have developed that feeling of 'unbearable' compassion toward others, you should try to increase your wisdom, and intelligence, in order to deal with the actual situation.
So I believe that when you follow the bodhisattva's way of life, it is possible to match your compassion, at whatever level it may be, with an active kind of interaction with others ."
Buddhahood permeates the minds of all sentient beings.
"Policy of Kindness" 14th Dalai Lama Tenzing Gyatso
" ... Maitreya, in his text the Sublime Continuum, gives three reasons on the basis of which one can conclude that the essence of Buddhahood permeates the minds of all sentient beings.
First, he says that the Buddha's activities radiate in the heart of all sentient beings.
But one could also see it in deeper terms, that is, that all sentient beings possess the potential for perfection.
Second, so far as the ultimate nature of reality is concerned, there is total equality between the samsaric state and nirvana.
Third, we all possess a mind which lacks intrinsic reality and independent existence,
For these three reasons, Maitreya concludes that all sentient beings possess the essence of Buddhahood."
