Uranus in the 9th house of a native’s natal chart gives a very rebellious mind which will actively search for his own truths, breaking from the patterns that society tries to teach them. The 9th house is the traditional home of Sagittarius and Jupiter, so the expansive planet magnifies the eccentric character of Uranus, leading it towards an unquenchable search of cosmic truths.
People with this natal placement are in a strong need of freedom concerning their philosophic and religious beliefs. They will revolt quite early in their life against ideas induced by their parents and teachers, choosing unconventional ways and seeking alternate paths of spirituality. 9th house Uranus people hate dogma, and most probably will revolt even against their own ideas when they get outdated. They will probably develop quite heretic cosmic theories, and frequently be interested in astrology or the paranormal. Sociology and philosophy are also subjects they will dedicate a lot of time to, and usually get actively involved through publishing their thoughts of them. Such individuals will prefer to offer their writings for free, and use the internet as the means of publishing; do not forget that Uranus is ruling technology!
Uranus is feeling quite well in the 9th house, as in most houses that are on the upper side of the natal chart. Indeed, regarding the possible erratic or even malefic behavior of this planet, it is quite better to have Uranus somewhere high in heavens as it does not become a handicap in basic life matters. If negatively aspected it will still impose difficulties, but the native will definitely be able to work on them, as they are part of the reality he experiences. On the other hand if it is near or below the horizon, its traits are appearing in the core of the native’s character or even as his reality’s stable surroundings, especially in his young years. These traits then are quite unchangeable and the native has little power over them.
Keep in mind that Uranus in the ninth house can create geniuses; nevertheless it will definitely create problems with education. The native does not enjoy structured learning, and even with good aspects there are great possibilities of quitting university or at least delaying it. As Uranus is ruling technology, it may make the native a technological freak; in such occasions even his studies can be successful, provided that they are on subjects like informatics, mechanics, robotics and other similar ones.
This placement gives some possibilities of an academic career in such subjects, but the unpredictable nature of Uranus also signifies a tendency to quitting in order to get concentrated on something different. The planet does not guarantee stability by any means! In case that the individual chooses the road of becoming a teacher, he will use quite unconventional ways of holding lessons, giving a different approach and insight to his students.
A well aspected Uranus may make the native have a vision of a perfect altruistic society. He will be quite interested in new forms of social auto-organization, and will become a pioneer in social reforms. His way of life will follow the romantic ideas and insights that appear as new patterns in his mind, and he will influence a lot of other people towards receiving them and experimenting on them. 9th house Uranus people are striving to create their Utopia; this might be an unattainable goal but definitely is a small step into collectively marching forward towards a new era.
As the 9th house is ruling travels and foreign places, Uranus can bring unexpected journeys to faraway places. These will be of a quite eccentric nature, appear suddenly and if the planet is badly aspected will not turn out well. People with such a natal Uranus should be very careful in exotic countries, especially if the planet is adversely aspected by Mars, Saturn or Pluto. They should stay away from all types of massive demonstrations and avoid countries with political turbulence.
Think wisely before choosing the country you travel, no matter how much exotic it sounds, and take all the necessary precautions. As Uranus will probably urge you to travel suddenly, make sure you at least learn the current situation of the country you visit, possible vaccinations that you must do and other important details. Generally, a lot of minor or major disturbances can occur. Usual problems that Uranus brings while placed in the 9th is an outdated passport or loss of it, arriving late in the airport and all types of bad luck events.
People with natal Uranus placed in the 9th can be very radical in their perception of reality, with their innovative ideas being even destructive. With good aspects, Uranus externalizes its positive traits that will help the native progress; on the other hand negative ones may give him a nihilistic approach towards reality, making him more concerned in demolishing patterns but without alternative propositions for them.
Hard aspects can even create a violent revolutionary without a reason; a person who will fight traditionalism even if it is of a positive nature. People with such adverse aspects can pose a threat to the society, as they will try to enforce a change that only destroys and does not provide an alternative for progress. In extreme cases, the native rejects all types of spirituality and social structures, becomes an aggressive atheist and anarchist and may harm the society instead of aiding its enlightment.
