Chapter 20.

Effects of 9th House

1-3. O Brahmin, now listen to effects of the 9th house. One will be fortunate (or affluent) if the 9th lord is in the 9th with strength. Should Jupiter be in the 9th house while 9th lord is in an angle and the ascendant lord is endowed with strength, one will be extremely fortunate.

3. FORTUNATE (AFFLUENT) FATHER:
If the 9th lord is with strength as Venus is in the 9th while Jupiter is in an angle from the ascendant, the native's father is fortunate.

4. INDIGENT FATHER:
If the 9th lord is debilitated while the 2nd/4th from the 9th is occupied by Mars, the native's father is poor.

5. LONG LIVING FATHER:
Should the 9th lord be in deep exaltation while Venus is in angle from the ascendant and Jupiter is in the 9th from Navamsa ascendant, the father of the native will enjoy a long span of life.

6. ROYAL STATUS FOR FATHER:
If the 9th lord is an angle in aspect to Jupiter, the native's father will be a king endowed with conveyances or be equal to a king.

7. WEALTHY AND FAMOUS FATHER:
Should the lord of the 9th be in the 10th while the 10th lord being aspected by a benefic the native's father will be very rich and famous.

8-9. VIRTUOUS AND DEVOTED FATHER:
Should the Sun be in deep exaltation as the 9th lord is in the 1th, the native will be virtuous, dear to king and devoted to father. If the Sun is in a trine from the ascendant while the 9th lord is in the 7th in conjunction with or in aspect to Jupiter, the native will be devoted to his father.

10. FORTUNES, ETC.:
Acquisition of fortunes, conveyances, and fame will follow the 32nd year of age if the 9th lord is in the 2nd while the 2nd lord is in the 9th.

11. INIMICAL TO FATHER:
There will be mutual enmity between the father and the native if the ascendant lord is in the 9th but with the lord of the 6th. Further, the native's father will be of contemptible disposition.

12. BEGGED FOOD:
If the 10th lord and 3rd lord are both bereft of strength while the 9th lord is in fall or in combustion, the native will go abegging for his food.

13-25. COMBINATIONS FOR FATHER'S DEATH:
The father of the native would have passed away prior to the native's birth if the Sun is in the 6th/8th/12th as the 8th lord is in the 9th, the 12th lord is in the ascendant, and the 6th lord is in the 5th house.
Should the Sun be in the 8th while the 8th lord is in the 9th, the native's father will pass away within a year of his birth.
If the lord of the 12th is in the 9th while the 9th lord is in debilitation Navamsa, the native's father will face his end during the 3rd/6th year of the native.
Death of father will occur in the 2nd or 12th year if the ascendant lord is in the 8th as the 8th lord is with the Sun.
Should Rahu be in the 8th from the 9th (i.e. 4th from the ascendant) as the Sun is in the 9th from the 9th (i.e. 5th from the ascendant), death of father will take place in the 16/18th year of the native.
If Saturn is in the 9th from the Moon as the Sun is with Rahu, the native's father will die in the 7th or the 19th year of the native.
The native in his 44th year will lose his father if the 9th lord is in the 12th as the 12th lord is in the 9th.
If the ascendant lord is in the 8th as the Moon is in the Sun's Navamsa, the native in his 35th/41st year will lose his father.
One will lose his father in the 50th year if the Sun, being the lord of the 9th, is conjunct Mars and Saturn.
If the Sun is in the 7th from the 9th (i.e. 3rd from the ascendant) as Rahu is in the 7th from the 3rd (i.e. 9th from the ascendant), the 6th/25th year of the native will be fatal for father.
If Saturn is in the 7th for the 8th (i.e. 2nd from the ascendant) as the Sun is in the 7th from Saturn (i.e. 8th from the ascendant), the ages of 30,21, or 26 will be fatal for the father.
If the 9th lord is in debilitation while his dispositor is in the 9th, the native will lose his father at 26 or 30. Thus the astrologers may know the effects (of the 9th house).

26. FORTUNES:
One will enjoy abundant fortunes if Venus is in deep exaltation and be in the company of the 9th lord as Saturn is in the 3rd.

27-28. FORTUNATE PERIODS:
Abundant fortunes will be acquired after the 20th year if the 9th has Jupiter in it as its lord is in an angle from the ascendant. Should Mercury be in his deep exaltation as the 9th lord is in the 9th itself, abundant fortunes will be earned after the 36th year.

29. Should the ascendant lord be in the 9th as the 9th lord is in the ascendant, and Jupiter is in the 7th, there will be gains of wealth and conveyances.

30. LACK OF FORTUNES:
If Rahu is in the 9th from the 9th (i.e. 5th from the ascendant), as his dispositor is in the 8th from the ascendant and the 9th lord is in fall, the native will be devoid of fortunes.

31. FOOD BY BEGGING:
Should Saturn be in the 9th along with the Moon as the ascendant lord is in fall, the native will acquire food by begging.

32. O Brahmin, these are the effects related to the 9th house. I have explained (these) briefly. These may be (further) estimated with the help of the state of the lords of the ascendant and 9th and in other manners as well.
