Exalted Saturn in Ninth House
When exalted Saturn is placed in the ninth house in a horoscope, Aquarius rises in the ascendant. Exalted Saturn is benefic in the ninth house in many cases though it may turn malefic in some cases. This may happen when Saturn is afflicted by malefic planets, such as through conjunction and/or aspects. As the number of malefic planets and the strengths of such planets increase, Saturn may become more malefic.
If exalted Saturn is afflicted by two or more than two malefic planets in the ninth house, it may turn significantly or highly malefic. Apart from that, the overall theme of horoscope having such exalted Saturn can also turn it malefic in some cases, when such theme is highly malefic. The concept of benefic planets turning malefic due to influences of malefic planets has been explained in Manglik Dosh section of the book ‘Match Making and Manglik Dosh (Revised Edition)’.

Such benefic exalted Saturn can bless the native with success through various types of businesses and practices. Taking an example, suppose benefic exalted Saturn is placed in the ninth house of a horoscope in Libra. Benefic Rahu is placed in the eleventh house in Sagittarius, a combination of benefic Jupiter and Ketu is placed in the fifth house in Gemini, Sun is placed in the sixth house in Cancer and Moon is placed in the eighth house in Virgo. In this case, the native may engage in a field related to finance like he may become a financial analyst. The native may also engage in stock markets and he may manage portfolios of various clients who may wish to invest in stock markets. He may witness good amount of success, money and recognition through his field of profession.
If benefic Venus is placed in the seventh house of this horoscope in Leo, Mercury is placed in the fifth house in Gemini with Jupiter and Ketu, and benefic Mars is placed in the eleventh house in Sagittarius with Rahu, the results may become better. In this case, the native may own more than one business and he may come across very good amount of money, success, recognition and fame through them. Among other things, the native may invest in stock markets and he may witness wonderful results. If the finer factors and running times are supportive, the native may earn billions through stock markets and other businesses. He may be blessed with a beautiful wife and his fortune may rise after marriage.
Apart from these, benefic exalted Saturn in the ninth house of horoscope can bless the native with several other types of good results, depending on his overall horoscope.
On the other hand, malefic exalted Saturn in the ninth house of horoscope can trouble the native with problems related to health, lifespan, father, spiritual growth, profession, finances, reputation, credibility and several other problems, depending on his overall horoscope.
Looking at the sphere of health, such placement of Saturn can trouble the native with various types of health issues, especially when other malefic planets are placed in the ninth house. Such issues may trouble the native and they may also reduce his lifespan. Taking an example, suppose malefic exalted Saturn is placed in the ninth house of a horoscope in Libra with Venus and Mercury. A malefic combination of Sun and Rahu is placed in the eighth house in Virgo and malefic Ketu is placed in the second house in Pisces. In this case, the native may suffer from various types of health problems and he may also have to undergo surgeries during his lifetime. The native may lose his kidneys and/or other vital organs due to serious health issues and he may die before the age of 50, unless there are grace saving factors in his horoscope.
Looking at such grace saving factors, suppose benefic Mars is placed in the first house of this horoscope in Aquarius, Moon is placed in the twelfth house in Capricorn and benefic Jupiter is placed in the fifth house in Gemini. In this case, the native may suffer from serious health issues and he may undergo surgeries also. However, he may get through them and he may live beyond the age of 60 or 65, depending on the finer factors and running times.
Looking at another variation, suppose the recent placements of Jupiter, Mars and Moon are annulled. Suppose debilitated Jupiter is placed in the twelfth house in Capricorn, malefic Moon is placed in the first house in Aquarius and Mars is placed in the seventh house in Leo. In this case, the native may suffer even more, and he may witness removal of kidneys as well as serious problems related to liver and/or heart. The native may also develop cancer around liver, pancreas or kidneys and he may die before the age of 40.
Considering another variation, suppose in the same horoscope, Jupiter is placed in the sixth house in Cancer, instead of being placed in the twelfth house in Capricorn. In this case, the native may get addicted to harmful drugs and he may also use services of professional sex workers on regular basis. If the finer factors and running times are against the native, he may contract a fatal sexually transmitted disease like HIV AIDS through a sex worker. The native may suffer a lot because of it and he may die before the age of 45 or even before the age of 40, depending on the finer factors and running times.
Apart from these, malefic exalted Saturn in the ninth house of horoscope can trouble the native with several other problems, depending on his overall horoscope.
