Generally speaking, this combination is considered inauspicious as the lord of fortune is in one of the malefic houses which signifies a loss in short words.

However, it should be noted that if the 9th house lord is favorably positioned in the 12th house, it can extract positive outcomes out of the initial troubles provided by the given malefic house.

On the other hand, when the 9th house ruler is in the 12th house, it is in 4th from its own sign which adds supportive and auspicious intonation or side effects to this combination. That is because the 4th house is an auspicious quadrant house or Kendra Bhava which signifies peace of mind, comforts, conveyances, luxuries, property, domestic happiness, etc.

In addition to that, the 9th house belongs to the triangle of righteousness or Dharma Trikona while both the 12th and 4th houses belong to the triangle of salvation or Moksha Trikona. The generic significance of the connection between these house types is that when the native is righteous, they are very fortunate regarding achieving final emancipation and go to heaven after this incarnation if the 9th house ruler is in good dignity.

Results of 9th House Lord in 12th House

Increased Expenses

According to classical source Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra, individuals with this combination have increased expenses which cause losses of their fortunes.

The reason for this effect is hidden behind the general significances of the houses involved. Namely, the 9th house is about wealth and fortune while the 12th is about losses or expenses.

Hence, the placement of the given house lord in the 12th house motivates these natives to spend their fortune or a big portion of it on specific purposes depending on the dignity of the 9th ruler.

Accordingly, if the 9th house lord is favorably placed in the 12th house, it indicates that these natives are inclined towards spending their wealth on good causes and purposes.

These causes are related to the positive sides of the 12th house, such as charities, donations, entertaining friends or communities, etc.

That is because when the 9th house lord is in good dignity, it also makes the native positively dignified. As a result, such natives with a strong 9th house ruler are inherently inclined towards kindness in abundance.

Alternatively, if the 9th house ruler is in bad dignity, it indicates losses of wealth through negative significances of the 12th house, such as deception, sinful acts, damage from hidden enemies, immoral desires, etc.

It also indicates loss of luck and fortune because of being unrighteous which leads them to the performance of immoral acts towards members of community or friends. This attracts a lot of hidden enmities which further leads to the great damage to fortunes.

Very Charitable & Kind

Most likely, if the houses of gains are strong, such natives have great fortunes and are financially very well off. At the same time, they are willing to share a big part of their fortunes with others.

That is why in BPHS it is mentioned that such natives are always inclined to spend their finances on auspicious deeds.

Astrologically speaking, both the 9th and 12th houses are about humbleness and kindness because these houses are natural homes for Sagittarius and Pisces zodiac signs respectively. Both of these are ruled by Jupiter, the humble planet of luck, wisdom, and abundance.

At the same time, the 9th house is about righteousness and 12th house about charities. This is why this well-formed combination produces one of the most generous people ever.

Moreover, as the given combination forms the 4th disposition, it indicates that such natives get their peace of mind through kind acts, charities, donations, and serving the underprivileged.

On the contrary, if the given combination is ill-placed, it indicates expenditure on immoral desires regarding sensual pleasures. That is because the 12th house is linked to bedroom comforts, including pleasures.

Fortune From Investments

When speaking of spending finances and wealth, there must be something to spend in the first place.

This is where another positive side of the 12th house comes into action. Namely, the 12th house signifies gains from heavy expenses on long term investments.

It might seem strange that such a thing as gains is related to the 12th house. Actually, there is a very good astrological explanation for that. To be specific, the 11th house is the powerhouse or Bhavat Bhavam of the 12th house.

In other words, the 12th from the 12th house is the 11th house of gains, profits, the fulfillment of desires, etc. At the same time, the 12th is 2nd from 11th. Herein the 2nd means assets, wealth accumulations, valuables, etc.

Accordingly, if the 9th house lord is in good dignity in the 12th house, it blesses the native with abundant profits from the healthy return of long term investments.

Other than that, it also indicates the gain of fortune through foreign matters especially when related to conveyances and real estate property.

Alternatively, if the 9th lord is ill-placed, it indcates unable to gain from investments which causes losses instead of profits. It is because this cobmiantion also indicates having no mental wisdom and analysing skills that are required to make wise investment decisions.

Expenses On Comforts

In addition to spendingon kind acts, such natives are fond of investing in comfortable life.

That is because of the 4th disposition formed by the given combination in question, which signifies conveyances, luxurious articles, property, domestic happiness & comforts, etc.

Accordingly, such natives also spend another large portion of their fortune on various luxurious articles and conveyances that improve their lifestyle and peace of mind alltogether.

Furthermore, the 12th house is counted from the 1st house of self. Hence, these natives seek satisfaction in spending on themselves.

Pleasing Others

As they are also very generous and humble from deep within, they also share their comforts with others as well, as stated in BPHS. There is also mentioned that they are fond of pleasing others with comforts.

Such natives are fond of welcoming guests and share their luxurious lifestyles with their friends’ circle.

Alternatively, if the 9th house lord is ill-placed in the 12th house, it indicates that the pleasing of others goes out of control which causes becoming poor on account of entertaining guests as per BPHS.

Such natives are so obsessed with showing off which makes them shower their finances on pleasing their friends or admirers. The obsession for such activities makes them unable to keep their eye on their expenses. Only after having spent large portions or even worse, are out of funds, they realize their mistakes.

Property Abroad

The 12th houe signifies far away lands, the 9th house signifies foreign journeys, while the 4th diposition signifies property and home.

As from the significances above, this given combination also indicates that these natives have a dream of owning comforts in foreign lands where they can travel often to ease up their minds.

Righteous Mind & Salvation

As stated at the beginning of this article, if the 9th house lord is auspiciously positioned in the 12th house, it indicates being fortunate regarding achieving salvation and going heaven.

The deeper reason for this is the righteous mind that makes them concerned about salvation. This, in turn, motivates them to lead a righteous life path and perform pious acts in order to ensure a special place in heaven.

On the contrary, if the 9th house lord is ill-placed, it indicates being bereft of righteousness which leads to performing sinful acts that deprive these natives of salvation.

Humble Father

The 9th house also signifies the father of the native and the positioning of the given lord in the 12th house gives a lot of information about his general nature.

If this combination is well placed, it indicates that he is very generous, kind, humble, and provides lots of comforts to the native.

It also indicates that the native obtains real estate from or with the help of their father.

As the 12th house also indicates isolation and foreign lands, it indicates that the native is often lacking the closeness of father because of his obligations that involve many long journeys to foreign countries.

Alternatively, if the 9th house lord is unfavorably positioned in the 12th house, it indicates being emotionally detached from father. That is, the relation is very cold between the native and father.
