Beliefs of the Mother
Maternal Devotional Piety
[Chandra in classroom-9] indicated a pious, believing mother. The bhakti style of Chandra-9 is emotionalized, but the mom may place her religious practice above her unconditional love for her children.
Mother-figure = Devout Believer
Chandra in bhava-9 typically needs inflow of inspirational worldview + outflow of doctrinal guidance.
Father: when Chandra occupies 9 and Surya is weakened, the mother may far out-influence the father. The mom is usually a person of strong convictions.
bhava-2 speech-sound-values = the conflicted 6th-from-Chandra
Vimshottari-dasha, bhukti of ruler-of-2, can produce an emotionally-charged argument, health challenge, or criminal accusation in the form of a values conflict or speaking style. The culprit may also be the family heritage or treasuries of the lineage. Outcomes depends on the strength of the 2nd-lord.
When Chandra occupies bhava-9 , the indriya-lagna = located in 5th-from-Chandra. One has a special affinity for 5th-from matters such as creativity, politics, amusements, games, fashion, and drama. The 5th angle is a signature of a uniquely intelligent agent, a creative game-player and speculator, free of conventional restraints. Chandra-9 nativities are often found in political and entertainment roles with a global, humanistic reach.
Furthermore matrikaraka Chandra occupies pitri-sthāna 9 suggesting that the mother and the father share a doctrinal alignment. Whatever may be other stress between the parents, they tend to unify on matters of the ritual [Chandra] expression of the paradigm of belief, including dharma (viewpoint), doctrine, sacred teachings, ideology, and theory.
Professor Chandra's special area of instruction is emotional sensitivity, absorption of feelings from the local environment, and emotional reaction or response. Chandra-9 is especially sensitive to the fluctuation of paradigms of belief, such as sacred doctrine and scientific theory. Chandra-9 deeply feels the need for familiar, rhythmic routines of in matters of public spiritual guidance.
The parents, particularly the mother, are often distinguished by a display of public piety. The mother may be deeply attached [Chandra] to a catechism of religious belief or a liturgy of worship. Alternatively the parents can be university professors or exponents of global humanistic philosophy.
Chandra-9 seeks comfort in catechisms of belief, articles of faith, interpretation of sacred scripture, university culture, professorship, and inclusive viewpoint. Chandra-9 is particularly sensitive to the needs of father-figures, professors, pontiffs, hierophants, indoctrinators, and guru-guides.
Matrikaraka Chandra is particularly sensitive to the needs of her own father She may be closely identified with him and his role in the world.
Definitive influence of Graha-yuti-Chandra
Anything which may be said of Chandra must be prefaced by a disclaimer. Professor Chandra is the soul of impressionability. He lives to reflect. Therefore, the characteristics of other graha yuti Chandra are often more in evidence than the underlying behaviors of Chandra Himself.
Jaimini Sutram, Ch4, Shloka 53-54 Trans. P.S. Sastri, Ranjan Publications, New Delhi, 1987
" If the Moon and Rahu are together in ninth from the Atmakaraka or Lagna,
the child will assume the nature of the destroyer of every thing."
Comforted by Catechism
Chandra-9 needs constant emotional engagement with matters of ideology, philosophy, doctrine or theory.
Emotionally stabilized in environments featuring philosophical father-figures such as professors, preachers, presbyters, popes, and holders of patrician entitlements. The mother is often a religious personality who holds a public role in matters of sacred worship, theology, ideology, catechesis, and doctrine.
Mother-figure * local rhythms subsume the global view
Chandra-9 denotes a distinctive behavior of the mother-figure(s). As always, much depends upon graha-yuti-Chandra. Typically, and predictably, Chandra-8 points to a doctrinally rooted mother whose tenets of belief are grounded through a faith community that has notably localized characteristics.
Mother is often a wise woman. She functions as professor, guru, philosopher, spiritual guide, and often the mother's advice is taken more willingly than the views of the father.
Awkward angle of Chandra in 6th-from-svabhava
Chandra-9 suffers a tendency to confuse the ethnic folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms of a settled people (Chandra, folk roots) with the philosophical frameworks of belief which interpret a greater reality (Guru, wide wisdom).
Thus, the mother figure may be (or is Chandra-yuti-Rahu, may Appear to Be) a " deeply religious" personality who finds comfort in the soothing rhythms of an ancient form of ritual worship. She may be a parochial personality who is specifically disinterested in the global, theoretical viewpoint of bhava-9.
It is generally easy to identify the Chandra-9 nativity due to the obvious nature of the mother's bondage to her stabilizing catechism.

Chandra is not a friend of Brihaspati
Special challenges for one's parents
For Kumbha nativities where Chandra-Tula-9 = also rogesha, expect growth-catalyst from an adversarial, accusing, blaming, often hostile, mother. Chandra dislikes both Shukra the rashi-pati and Guru the bhava-pati. Matters of sacred belief may be used, by an unbalanced mother-figure, for purpose of exploitation, servitude, or betrayal. Despite an external ministry of service (6) mom may be vindictive within the family. As usual with Chandra-9, the father's role is often supplanted by patron-figures preferred by the mother, such as priests or preachers.
Incoming drishti from Shukra-Mesha-3 can soften the hostilities. Incoming drishti from Guru in 1-3-5 can expand Chandra-9's culturally hidebound ritualism into a wider worldview.
Growth-catalyst from an unpredictable, secretive mother, for Dhanus nativities, where Chandra-Simha-9 is also randhresha. Mom is political and doctrinal. One may seeks both security (Soma) and attention [Simha] via the mother's creed. Despite the external certainty, the hidden (8) inner feelings are tumultuous. Mom is capable of making unexpected identity changes with no warning (also is the native). Chandra in Magha - Regulus = mom may be a trance-medium (also is native). As usual with Chandra-9, the dignity of fatherhood is often supplanted by patron-figures preferred by the mother, such as priests or preachers.
A well-placed Surya can restore the paternal power. Incoming drishti from Surya-Kumbha-3 can add confidence to the volatility. Incoming drishti from Guru in 1-3-5 can expand Chandra-9's culturally hidebound ritualism into a wider worldview.
Growth-catalyst from an unpredictable, secretive mother, for Simha nativities, where Chandra-Mesha-9 is also vyaya-pati. Mom is often withdrawn into sanctuary, in practice of private prayer or meditation. Although emotionally anchored in doctrine and respected by the sangha (congregation of believers) mom tends to be emotionally less available to the family.
Incoming drishti from Mangala-Tula-3 can energize the preaching-teaching rhythms. Incoming drishti from Guru in 1-3-5 can expand Chandra-9's culturally hidebound ritualism into a wider worldview.
Parents, especially Mother, are Local, Applied Believers
Relationship with the parents can be conflicted with Chandra located in 6th-from-4th, suggesting disagreement (6) over matters of localized custom, rhythms, religions, and routines (4). Yet, the mother provides a guiding wisdom.
The birth-mother herself is often deeply involved in spiritual guidance activities within the faith community (9 = 11th-from-11th, community of communities). Yet, she may also be recognized as a type of applied religious philosopher who is able to discuss the local applications of her beliefs to situations of daily life [Chandra].
Rooted in the rhythms of belief
Membership in a faith community, profession of religious or ideological belief, and discourse on humanistic global culture may provide the emotional foundation of life.
Typically, a sensitive, intelligent personality whose primary emotional experience occurs in the world of philosophical thought or conversation with the divine. Feeling of emotional safety when in the company of the sangha and during performance of the sacred liturgy.
Feels grounded when reading sacred scripture and purely philosophical texts, worshipping in a faithful congregation, and discussing the tenets of the faith.
Naturally, if Chandra-9 is disoriented by unsettling planetary rays, Chandra-9's emotional dependence upon the doctrines of received belief may also be affected.
Chandra in Bhava-9
Chandra in dharma bhava = 6th from Soma's natural residence Bandhu bhava = not always advantageous.
Deeply emotional need to adhere to an established doctrine. If Chandra is amplified by other graha, one's deep concern with sacred teachings, the mother's piety, familiar and customary beliefs may influence a global (9) audience.
Affection for religious instructors, priests, liturgical ritual, scripture, and the cultural environments of sacred worship. If one is a parent, the parenting behavior may focus inordinately upon religious adherence in the upbringing of children.
Soma in Bhava-9 = splendid placement for philanthropists, philosophers, preachers and priests.
Bhagya Chandra provides a globalized affection for children [Guru] and a sincere emotional connection to the Divine.
When Soma is well-disposed, Chandra-9 = a natural bhakti yogi who approaches all things religious in a mood of nurturing devotion.
However, should Chandra be ill-disposed, or with Rahu, the native may project unmet emotional need upon the framework of ceremonial religion.
Other expressions of Somana
Profound emotional need for nurturing can overwhelm philosophically grounded compassion for all beings. Chandra-9 may be unable expand beyond one's own trauma.
Chandra-9 may assume a parent-child relationship to the religious teacher, when a more respectful guru-sisya role would be more philosophically productive.
Whatever the condition of Chandra in bhava-9, there may be a tangible love of humanity and some measure of progressive compassion, due to an inborn need for faith.
9 = 11th-from-11th suggesting community and social networking
deepest habitual, rhythmic comfort is found in environments of bhava-9 such as
Sentimental affection toward
Mangala + Chandra in 9 makes the native rich, but prognosis is Challenge to craft a balance within the relationship to the father.
Needs professions of faith, taking vows, and ritual performance.
Chandra-9 = 7th-from-Chandra becomes Bhava-3 = signal, message, cohort.
Spouse-partner = talkative, localized or parochial in orientation, often engaged in neighborhood activities or socializing with workmates, and quite a mentalized personality.
Usually, one prefers a more professorial role of thinking big thoughts on matters of principle, whereas the spouse prefers the micro world of day-to-day communications and sibling-style relationships.
Chandra-9 ABSORBS priestly duties of ceremonial religion into oneself.

Many interactions with educators, police, property managers, fencers, home builders and repairers, vehicle repair folk, and others concerned with home-vehicle-school or property boundaries.
These difficult and highly rule-bound events force adeeper understanding of the nature of physical, social, financial, psychological, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual security and protection.
Final outcome depends significantly upon:
Maternal, intuitive, emotional style of religious behavior. Much affection from the people. One-world love of children and wisdom. Sincere, heart-centered philosopher, but effectiveness depends on Chandra's lord. religious outreach to mother-and-child, elderly, weaklings needing care, the old ways.
If other graha support, may take up residence in the temple of a goddess or cultivate the religion of the Divine Mother. Likes religious ceremonies that feed and heal people. Wants to feed the world. Favors a guru who has assumed a female body, or a touch-healing guru.
Favors happiness through religious cultures which hold maternal embrace and nurturing love in the highest regard.
Career outcomes during
Dasha periods of a graha located in
Career during Vimshottari Dasha periods of a graha located in bhava-9.
There are many beneficial effects from graha located in dharmasthāna-9 including expansion of humanistic perspective, global awareness, and contact with wisdom-figures.
Nevertheless, the 10th-from-9 = bhava-6 indicating disharmony and ailment.
As a result, there may be a temporary experience of conflict in leadership roles, ailments related to job performance, unfair agreements, loss of contract, dissolution of equity, accusations, pollution, or other 6-related phenomena according to the rashi of 6 and any graha residing in 6.
If the karmesha occupies rogasthāna-6, the professional life remains robust, but the career duties tend to emphasize injury, indebtedness, exploitation, or toxicity, inter alia.
Careers in labor relations, social work, medicine, and other ministries of service are usually enhanced by the 6th-angle because these professions are already dedicated to service of the hurting. Their collegial relationships may temporarily suffer somewhat but the overall mission is stable.
Spirit temple in Japan at Cherry Blossom time
Mother = public piety, devotional righteousness, provider of patronage to pandits, doctrinal guru- guide.
However, Chandra's svabhava-4 = 8th-from-Chandra
Mother and native are comfortable with patronage practices.
Mother and native feel security in the sangha, from dogma, from public bhakti.
Mom may place doctrinal compliance over child's well being. Potential to use principles of belief as justification for mistreatment of family 
Comfort from feeling self-righteously dharmic.
One may become deeply attached to the grandchild, but the fate of the children is less certain since matrikaraka in 9 causes adversarial emotional relationship to matters of (4) = house and home.
Emotional attachment to habitual rhythms of caring for grandchildren, puja, honoring (but not necessarily understanding) sacred knowledge, and habitual repetitions of festivals in ceremonial religion.
Mom may be the the primary parent, and she serves in some settings as a father-figure.
Maternal religious beliefs - the key to her social security - are at loggerheads (6/8) with the stability and security of the family home (4).
Particularly if Surya is weak, mom is not only the primary moral authority in the home, but also a preaching indoctrinator.
The mother = doctrinal and philosophical, although if Chandra is not strong by rashi that concern with principled discourse can be minimally a show of public piety or conformity to received dogma. Typically, the mother is well-educated relative to her society's standards.
If matrikaraka Chandra is well disposed, the Mother participates in the culture of ritual priesthood in the temple of worship, supports the core sacramentalism of her faith, and normally she also values the culture of university life, often forming the major impetus behind her child's success in higher education.
For Simha indriya-lagna, Chandra = lord of the defensive, culturally-rooted, seasonal-calendar, routinized, patriotic, ethno-nationalistic, comfort-seeking, home-loving, foundational, property-owning 4th-from-Chandra also, thus the maternal grandmother has the same ritually religious, scholarly or devout character as the mother.
Masculine-identified nativity may feel that his mother provides strong moral instruction, and overall fortune during his childhood. Adult emotional relationships are full of appreciation for the others' virtues. The one can even see the virtues of one's enemies.
Feminine-identified nativity may see her mother as a protective, morally grounded instructor. The mother-daughter relationship is typically supportive and permissive. Mother and daughter enjoy equality in fellowship, while continuing shared traditions of knowledge or craft.
(Naturally, the drishti of Shani, Kuja, Rahu-Ketu or a dushthamsha lord upon Soma will alter this favorable prognosis.)
When Chandra occupies Bhava-9, the emotionally most difficult bhava becomes 6th-from-9th = Dhana bhava.
Emotional Suffering from
Depending on conditions in Bhava-2, Chandra-9 may experience affective difficulties due to disagreements with the family history, about wealth and stored values, about record-keeping, speech and song, and the public life of one's children.
