Neptune in the ninth house

Neptune in ninth house astrology model

The ninth house is where we search for truth: experiences that broaden the mind and help us form our philosophy of life. Here we expand our consciousness, synthesize meaning from facts and experience, adjust personal attitudes to collective ideas, and understand how things are integrated into systems. This house rules higher education, religious and ethical understanding, spiritual visions, in-laws, long journeys, law and the higher courts. Here is what remains of the purification that took place in the Eighth house: its seed or essence. "Religion" comes from the Latin "re-," back + "ligare," to bind, hence, "to bind back," and thus refers to all things that last or endure, such as the truth. Many planets in the ninth are usually an indication of being unwilling to accept the conventional limits within which we were raised.

You tend to be mentally open, impressionable, and mystical. If Neptune is unafflicted in the ninth house, your philosophy is very refined and you may even have spiritual visions. If afflicted here, however, you tend to dream and to cloud your judgment with wishful thinking. Should you wish to pursue advanced studies, be aware of a tendency to be diffuse and unfocused in that regard. You may have problems with in-laws due to a lack of empathy. Philosophy and religion can be an escape and refuge for you from the everyday world.

If Neptune is within 10 of the midheaven it is conjunct the tenth house cusp and much of the above interpretation starts to become weaker. If Neptune is in the ninth house AND within 4 or 5 of the midheaven, then it is said to be on the "dark side" of the tenth house, and it influence will be felt in the tenth as well as in the ninth house. The closer a ninth house Neptune is to the tenth house cusp, the more it will be interpreted as though it were in the tenth house; when less than 3 from the midheaven, a ninth house Neptune expresses itself primarily -- and eventually entirely -- in the tenth house.

Astronomically speaking, the ninth house is that one-twelfth sector of the local sky clockwise from the Midheaven (see above picture) occupied by planets two hours after they culminate.
