Debilitated Saturn in Ninth House
When debilitated Saturn is placed in the ninth house in a horoscope, Leo rises in the ascendant. Debilitated Saturn is malefic in the ninth house in many cases though it may turn benefic in some cases. This may happen when Saturn is influenced by benefic planets, such as through conjunction and/or aspects. As the number of benefic planets and the strengths of such planets increase, Saturn may become more benefic.
Since Saturn is weak due to debilitation, it may become easy for benefic planets to add positivity to Saturn. If debilitated Saturn is influenced by one or more than one benefic planet in the ninth house, it may turn significantly or highly benefic. Apart from that, the overall theme of horoscope having such debilitated Saturn can also turn it benefic in some cases, when such theme is benefic. The concept of malefic planets turning benefic due to influences of benefic planets has 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 Saturn in the ninth house when it is benefic. Such benefic debilitated Saturn can bless the native with good results related to father, spiritual growth, creativity, marriage, husband, wife, profession, finances, reputation, fame, authority, recognition and several other good results, depending on his overall horoscope and running times.
Such debilitated Saturn can help the native achieve success as a doctor, engineer, IT professional, scientist, lawyer, actor, singer, dancer, musician, writer, fashion designer, interior designer, web developer, video game developer, architect, sportsman, banker, astrologer, spiritual guru, religious guru, tantric, psychic, healer, numerologist, vastu expert, tarot reader, palmist, police officer, army officer, air force officer, naval officer, fire-fighting officer, revenue officer, judge, administrative officer, foreign services officer, education officer, medical officer, telecom officer, information and broadcast officer, aviation officer, transport officer, railway officer, politician, professional dealing in finance industry, stock market, IT, software, computers, education, media, movie, television, radio, social media, investment, real estate, liquor, casino, tobacco, hotel, airline, travel, sports, arms, pharmaceutical, medical, chemical, steel, automobile industry or some other professional, depending on his overall horoscope and running times.
Taking an example for a female native, suppose debilitated Saturn is placed in the ninth house of horoscope in Aries with Jupiter. Benefic Venus is placed in the first house in Leo, benefic debilitated Sun is placed in the third house in Libra with benefic Mercury, benefic exalted Rahu is placed in the second house in Virgo, and benefic exalted Ketu is placed in the eighth house in Pisces. Sun and Mercury may form Budhaditya Yoga in the third house. In this case, the native may engage in the field of media. The native may become a journalist, she may possess good abilities and she may come across success, money, fame and recognition through her profession. She may witness good results after the age of 30, better results after 35 and even better results after 40.
If benefic Mars is placed in the second house in Virgo with Rahu, and exalted Moon is placed in the tenth house in Taurus, the equation may become better. In this case, the native may possess very good talent as a journalist. She may engage in investigative journalism and she may specialize in political area. She may unravel several political scandals and she may witness very good amount of success, fame and recognition through them. The native may also write some books which may be based on real life events and which may expose some political scandals or conspiracies. She may win formal awards for some of her books and some of those awards may be of the highest order. She may get married to a man who may be a teacher, writer, scientist or doctor; and she may enjoy a good marriage.
Apart from these, benefic debilitated Saturn in the ninth house of horoscope can bless the native with several other good results, depending on his/her overall horoscope and running times.
On the other hand, malefic debilitated Saturn in the ninth house of horoscope can trouble the native with problems related to father, spiritual growth, marriage, husband, wife, profession, reputation, finances and several other problems, depending on his overall horoscope.
Such debilitated Saturn can trouble the native with delay in marriage, disturbances after marriage and/or one or more failed marriages, depending on his overall horoscope and running times. It can also trouble the native with various types of problems related to or through his father. Taking an example, suppose malefic debilitated Saturn is placed in the ninth house of a horoscope in Aries with malefic Rahu. Malefic Ketu is placed in the third house in Libra with benefic Mars. Benefic Venus is placed in the fifth house in Sagittarius with Jupiter, and benefic Sun is placed in the sixth house in Capricorn. In this case, the native may lose his father before the age of 20 or he may not live with his father due to divorce between his parents, during his childhood. The native may get married in time but he may face serious problems in his marriage and it may fail. The native may settle in his second marriage, if his overall horoscope and running times are favourable.
If benefic Mercury is placed in the sixth house in Capricorn with Sun, and malefic Moon is placed in the ninth house in Aries with Saturn and Rahu, the equation may become more troublesome. In this case, the native may lose his father to death, before his age of 15 or 10 years. He may witness two or three failed marriages, on account of serious problems in them. The native may settle in his third or fourth marriage; or he may remain single after second or third failed marriage, depending on the finer factors and running times.
