One of the first things mentioned in classical text Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra is that individuals with this combination are very fortunate and virtuous.

This effect is provided by the general significance of the 9th astrological domain, which is luck, prosperity, and fortune in general.

As the 9th ruler is settled in the 1st house, which is also known as the house of self, it provides natural luck and fortune to the native with this combination.

Alternatively, if the 9th house ruler is in bad dignity in the ascendant, it indicates a lack of natural luck and prosperity, which means that the native is forced to struggle more in order to attain the desired results.

Past Life Deeds

The blessings of natural luck and fortune provided by this combination has a lot to do with past life deeds of the native.

This is because of the 5th disposition formed by this combination, which signifies past life deeds.

Accordingly, if the 9th house ruler is well placed in the ascendant, it indicates a lot of pious deeds done in the past lives which is the prime reason for being fortunate in the current incarnation.

To dive deeper into details, the involved houses in this combination indicate that the native stood for righteousness, ethics, and morals courageously in pat life. They also protected and stood for those who were on the good side of the moral laws.

As the native protected the divine truth fearlessly, the almighty God blessed them with good luck, prosperity, and divine support in current life path.

In addition to that, as the 5th signifies progeny, this fortunate combination provides an increase in fortune through ethical, wise, and intelligent children.

Alternatively, if the 9th house ruler is damaged or in bad dignity, it indicates lack of divine support due to some shortcomings in past life. It can indicate that the native abandoned righteousness while chasing after prosperity.

As per law of karma, it makes the native struggle more because lack of natural luck.

In BPHS it is also mentioned that natives with this combination are virtuous and charming.

The presence of 9th house lord of righteousness in the 1st house of self provides a very moral, kind, and generous personality to the native.

With that being said, the high standards and respect for morals makes the native very trustworthy and others can easily rely on them.

Public Admiration

Speaking of charm and trustworthiness, the same traits also attract admiration from society or the public.

Astrologically, this effect can be explained by the aspect of the 9th house lord upon the 7th house of society and public.

The 7th is exactly opposite to the 1st house. Hence, it is the reflection of the self to the public.

With the favorable combination of 9th house lord in the 1st house, the native becomes extremely attractive to the public for their generosity and righteousness.

As a result of this, the honor and dignity of such individuals are highly increased.

  • Hello Martin,
    What if Saturn is 9th lord sitting in 1st house (gemini ascendant)?Will all these be still applicable

    • Hello SurGan!

      Saturn in Gemini is dignified. However, you have to blend these effects with Saturn in 1st house and Gemini Saturn. You can find these articles through a search or birth chart calculator.

      Dignified Saturn blended with 9th house energies increases maturity regarding higher wisdom, religion, and spirituality. It is someone who is strictly disciplined.

      • Thanks a lot Martin for clarifying my question πŸ‘.So that means the good results of 9th lord in 1st house will be there because Saturn is dignified in gemini although there will be alterations yet good results will be there.
        Thanks again Martin πŸ˜‡,it was reassuring because initially I thought I won’t get it’s good results because it’s Saturn πŸͺ.

        My best regards.

      • Hello Martin,
        Actually I had one more ☝🏻 question.
        As Saturn is 9th lord and it’s seated in 1st house, so will some bad results of Saturn in 1st house (in gemini)mitigate? Like delay,unnecessary toil,etc.And can this disposition protect and help the native to maintain a positive attitude plus give little warmth to the native??

        • Hello

          Saturn is defined as a natural malefic planet for a reason. Definitely, it will give hurdles, struggles, delay and such in order to make work harder and take life from a more mature and serious perspective.

          Not all malefic effects give bad outcomes. What I consider bad is low dignity not hurdles.

          Best wishes

  • There is a lot of information collected, If at all these trails were done during BHPS days, are we on a different plane or ayanamsa now that some of these rules/laws do not seem to connect. I have Saturn placed in 1st house Taurus ascendant, but most of these do not seem to be appealing, my father passed away when I was 5 yr old, and there are quite a lot of misfortunes had seen. So, I think it is also important that the 9th lord should be a natural benefic planet.

    • Hello Mohan

      I am very sorry to hear about your difficult experiences. May peace be upon him.

      Yes, you are correct, whether the planet ruling the 9th house is natural benefic or malefic alters the results. Thank you for correcting and including that.

      Best wishes
