It is because the 9th house is the house of faith, religion, and spirituality. At the same time, the 4th house is a house of virtues because it belongs to the triangle of salvation.

Namely, the fifth house from the 5th house is the 9th house itself whereas the fifth house denotes recognition and political type of authority. This is how the 9th house provides recognition from society to such natives for their humble character.
