More on the 6th house

This is somewhat a difficult combination because the 6th house is a malefic house which is called a Dusthana Bhava as per sidereal Vedic astrology. That is, the harmonious a peaceful energies of the 9th house find it hard to resonate with the difficult and quarrelsome 6th house.

On the other hand, 9th lord in 6th house is in 10th form its own sign which adds auspicious energies to this combination. That is because the 10th house is the strongest and favorable quadrant house or Kendra Bhava which signifies midheaven, high achievements, karma & main duties in life, career, profession, business, social rank, status, etc.

When the 9th ruler is in good dignity, that is, well-placed sign-wise in the 6th house, it is able to extract powerful results from the 6th house.

Moreover, both the 6th and 10th houses involved in the formation of this combination are the houses of growth and gradual improvement. These are called Upachaya Bhava as per Vedic astrology.

In addition to that, the 9th house belongs to the triangle of righteousness or Dharma Trikona while both the 6th and 10th houses belong to the same triangle of wealth or Artha Trikona. The connection between these house types gives success in the material plane. If the 9th lord is in good dignity, it also indicates righteous ways of earning a livelihood.

It is also important to note that as this combination deals with Upachaya Bhava, the natural malefic planet as 9th lord in 6th house tends to perform more efficiently as having the aggression, strength, and brute force to endure the difficulties. It does not mean that natural benefic plants are completely ineffective in this house, it just means that they deal with these issues rather passively and in a more soft and delicate manner which has a less harmful impact on malefic energies of the 6th house.

Results of 9th House Lord in 6th House

Struggle & Lacking Prosperity

One of the first things mentioned in ancient source Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra is that individuals with this combination have very little prosperity and success.

The reason for such an effect is the fact that the 9th lord of fortune is positioned in the malefic house which greatly reduces the effectivity of the 9th house.

That is, with this combination, the natives lack a natural charm, luck, and fortune which prompts them to struggle harder to achieve success and become prosperous.

It is because, without luck, the native should rely more on self-efforts and extremely hard work in order to fight against the odds and have the chance to prosper in their field of activity.

The matters become much worse when the 9th lord is in bad dignity and damaged by association with inimical planets. To be specific, it completely negates the luck of the native which makes it hard to see their desired results even after massive amounts of struggle.

However, if the 9th house lord is well-placed and aspected in the 6th house, it indicates that despite having a lack of lady luck, these natives are able to prosper after putting in tons of work and developing immense discipline.

This enables them to overcome the ever-expanding obstacles in their way. By constantly strengthening their durability and discipline they are able to fight against odds and find their way to prosper.

Misfortune Through Enemies

In BPHS, it is also stated that people with this combination are constantly troubled by opposition and enemies.

This effect is provided by the general significances of the 6th house of enemies, fights, obstacles, and litigation.

With damage to the luck and fortune of the native, it makes it even harder to cope with these envious enemies who constantly try to bring obstacles to the path of the native.

These troubles can be in any form of the 6th house, including litigation, quarrels, actual fights, all kinds of obstacles caused by enemies, etc. All of these make the native struggle and face a lot of challenges.

Hence, this combination causes misfortune by enemies.

The outcomes of such effects are highly dependent on the dignity of the 9th ruler.

Accordingly, if the given combination is well-formed, it indicates that these natives are able to cope with all these challenges and overcome them after lots of struggle.

Moreover, the 10th disposition and 6th house both are Upachaya Bhavas or houses of gradual improvement which suggests that the matters of this combination improve over time. This actually reflects the ability of the natives to stand up and fight the adversities by developing strength, endurance, and will-power to prosper.

After all, the 10th disposition indicates ambitions and forward striving nature, if this combination is well-formed. This actually indicates that the opposition and challenges brought by enemies are the best teachers and trainers to the native. As a result, the enemies become great stepping stones for the natives to prosper and become successful after all this struggle, disputes, and litigation.

On the contrary, if the combination is ill-formed, it indicates a lack of motivation, ambition, strength, endurance, and will power to endure all these obstacles which lead to giving up easily.

Whenever the opponents show their strengths, it makes the native hesitant about their own powers which leads them to lack motivation to develop their strengths and fight adversities and opposition.

As a result, they tend to become less competitive which indicates that opponents are able to outscore the native.

The 6th house also signifies the relatives and siblings from the side of the mother. It is because according to the Bhavat Bhavam technique (from house to house) the 6th house is 3rd (younger siblings, relatives) from the 4th house (mother).

With all that being said, the general effect of 9th lord being in 6th house is a lack of support and happiness from maternal siblings, even though they are financially well off and quite successful.
