Debilitated Rahu in Ninth House
Rahu is debilitated in Scorpio as well as in Pisces. For the sake of this discussion, we’ll consider both these placements of Rahu. Debilitated Rahu is benefic in the ninth house in some cases whereas it may turn malefic in some cases. The influences of other benefic and malefic planets on Rahu and the overall theme of horoscope are important criteria when it comes to decide the functional nature of Rahu in a horoscope.
As the number and strengths of benefic and/or malefic planets influencing Rahu in a horoscope increase, Rahu may become more benefic or malefic. The concept of benefic planets turning malefic due to influences of malefic planets, and the concept of malefic planets turning benefic due to influences of benefic planets have been explained in Manglik Dosh section of the book ‘Match Making and Manglik Dosh (Revised Edition)’.
Let’s look at some results which may be given by debilitated Rahu in the ninth house when it is benefic. Benefic debilitated Rahu in the ninth house of horoscope can bless the native with good results related to father, spiritual growth, education, profession, finances, reputation, fame, authority, recognition and several other good results, depending on his overall horoscope.
Such benefic debilitated Rahu can render creative abilities to the native. Hence the native may achieve success as an actor, singer, dancer, musician, writer, director, producer, sportsman, painter, sculptor, architect, fashion designer, interior designer, video game developer, web developer, software developer or some other type of creative professional, depending on his overall horoscope and running times.
Taking an example, suppose benefic debilitated Rahu is placed in the ninth house of a horoscope in Scorpio with benefic Mars. Benefic debilitated Ketu is placed in the third house in Taurus with benefic Jupiter, Venus is placed in the eighth house in Libra, Sun is placed in the sixth house in Leo and benefic Moon is placed in the tenth house in Sagittarius. In this case, the native may become a sportsman. He may engage in a sport from an early age, he may possess good abilities related to such sport and he may come across success, money, fame and recognition as a sportsman. The native may engage in a sport which may be one-on-one as well as team sport, like tennis. He may achieve good success on national level and he may also make name on international level, if the finer factors and running times are supportive.
If benefic exalted Mercury is placed in the seventh house in Virgo and debilitated Saturn is placed in the second house in Aries, the equation may become better. Exalted Mercury forms Bhadra Yoga in the seventh house. In this case, the native may possess very good talent related to the sport he engages in, and he may come across a lot of success, fame, recognition and money as a sportsman. The native may play on international level, he may witness good results after the age of 20 and very good results after 25. By the age of 28 or 30, the native may become one of the most recognized sportsmen of his time. He may deliver several wonderful performances, he may have a very good success rate and he may receive several awards/medals. The native may have a large number of fans across the world, and he may have his net worth in billions, by the age of 35 or 40.
Such debilitated Rahu can help the native achieve success as an astrologer, tantric, hypnotist, magician, psychic, healer, palmist, tarot reader, numerologist, vastu expert, spiritual guru, philosopher, researcher, analyst, discoverer, scientist, engineer, mathematician, astronaut, astronomer, politician, diplomat, software developer, IT professional, web developer, reporter, journalist, blogger, columnist, anchor, television show host, orator, speaker, teacher, coach, consultant, advisor, doctor, therapist, telecom officer, transport officer, revenue officer, administrative officer, police officer, army officer, fire-fighting officer, naval officer, air force officer, pilot or some other type of professional, depending on his overall horoscope and running times.
Apart from these, benefic debilitated Rahu in the ninth house of horoscope can bless the native with several other good results, depending on his overall horoscope and running times.
On the other hand, malefic debilitated Rahu in the ninth house of horoscope can trouble the native with problems related to father, education, spiritual growth, profession, finances, reputation, unfortunate events and several other problems, depending on his overall horoscope and running times.
Such malefic Rahu can trouble the native with various types of problems related to or through his father, depending on his overall horoscope and running times. The native may not have good equation with his father, he may spend most of his childhood away from his father, his father may be seriously ill, his father may be a criminal, he may be a drug addict, or native’s parents may get divorced and the native may live with his mother. In an extreme case when such malefic Rahu is influenced by other malefic planets and/or an overall malefic horoscope, the native may lose his father to death before the age of 10 or 5 years.
Such malefic debilitated Rahu can also trouble the native with financial losses, delays, setbacks, job loss, bad reputation and several other problems through his profession. Taking an example, suppose malefic debilitated Rahu is placed in the ninth house of a horoscope in Scorpio with malefic Venus. Malefic Sun is placed in the tenth house in Sagittarius with Mercury, malefic debilitated Ketu is placed in the third house in Taurus, benefic Jupiter is placed in the fourth house in Gemini and benefic Moon is placed in the first house in Pisces. In this case, the native may lose his father through divorce of his parents. He may also suffer from setbacks, delays and financial losses through profession.
If malefic Saturn is placed in the tenth house in Sagittarius with Sun and Mercury, and Mars is placed in the eighth house in Libra, the equation may become more troublesome. In this case, the native may lose his father to death, before his age of 10 or 5 years. If the finer factors and running times are very negative, the native may lose his father, soon after his birth or soon before his birth. He may not find a permanent profession till late in life or throughout his life, and he may only find temporary jobs from time to time.
Apart from these, malefic debilitated Rahu in the ninth house of horoscope can trouble the native with several other problems, depending on his overall horoscope and running times.
