Exalted Rahu in Ninth House
Rahu is exalted in Taurus as well as in Virgo. For the sake of this discussion, we’ll consider both these placements of Rahu. Exalted Rahu is benefic in the ninth house in some cases whereas it turns 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 strength of benefic or malefic planets influencing Rahu in a horoscope increases, 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)’.

His father may hold a post of authority in government like he may be an officer or a minister. His father may be a religious guru or spiritual guru. Native’s father may settle abroad, he may earn very good amount of money and the native may become a citizen of such foreign country by virtue of his father.
Such benefic exalted Rahu can help the native achieve success through various types of professions and it can also bless him with a post of authority in government, through job or through politics, depending on his overall horoscope and running times. Taking an example, suppose benefic exalted Rahu is placed in the ninth house of a horoscope in Virgo. Ketu is placed in the third house in Pisces. Benefic exalted Saturn is placed in the tenth house in Libra, Sun is placed in the first house in Capricorn, Mercury is placed in the second house in Aquarius and Jupiter is placed in the eighth house in Leo. In this case, the native may become a revenue officer in government. He may get selected for a high rank in revenue services and he may enjoy good amount of success, authority and recognition during his career.
If benefic Venus is placed in the first house in Capricorn with Sun, benefic Mars is placed in the fifth house in Taurus and benefic Moon is placed in the eighth house in Leo with Jupiter, the equation may become better. In this case, the native may achieve success in competitive exams for civil services and he may get selected for the highest possible direct rank in revenue services. The native may enjoy very good amount of success, recognition and authority during his career and he may accomplish a lot as an officer. The native may not work in usual revenue profiles and he may become an officer in the revenue intelligence. He may investigate several high-profile criminal cases related to various types of revenue crimes and he may achieve success in most of them. The native may have a distinguished career as an officer and he may serve at the top of his department before retirement. Even after retirement, the native may be hired by a big private organization for his expertise, or he may achieve a post of authority in government through politics.
Apart from these, benefic exalted Rahu in the ninth house of horoscope can bless the native with several other good results, depending on his overall horoscope.

Such malefic exalted Rahu can form Pitra Dosh in the ninth house, which may reduce the luck factor of the native considerably. Hence the native may suffer from a large number of unfortunate incidents throughout this life, where some of them may be small and some others may be big. For instance, the native may keep losing his job, he may face losses through profession, he may face police cases, court cases, fines, penalties, accidents, accusations, allegations and several other such problems from time to time. In majority of these cases, the native may not do much to create them and bad luck may play primary role in creating and aggravating such problems. The native may simply be at the wrong places at wrong times.
The native may also face losses through stock markets, again due to bad luck. He may go for mountain tracking, he may get separated from the rest of the team, he may get lost and he may suffer for many days before a rescue team may find him. He may come across a boat or ship crash, he may get deserted on an island and he may have to spend a lot of time before rescue teams find him. He may get kidnapped or he may be held hostage by criminals/terrorists. He may suffer because of earthquake or the ceiling may simply crash on him. When supported by other malefic planets and overall horoscope, such malefic exalted Rahu can get the native killed in an accident before the age of 50. The native may die in an airplane crash, boat crash, road accident, earthquake, tsunami, crossfire between police and criminals; or due to another such reason, depending on his overall horoscope and running times.
He may also face problems related to his father or because of his father. For example, his father may be a drug addict, he may be a criminal, he may be an abusive parent, he may be unable to move due to a serious disease or he may become the cause of trouble for native due to some other reason.
Apart from these, malefic exalted Rahu in the ninth house of horoscope can trouble the native with several other bad results, depending on his overall horoscope.
