Although Moon in the 9th house people rely on faith that has been inherited from a family or culture, they have the ability to adapt their philosophy to changing influences and conditions. There may be periods, during which these people live abroad, and traveling is all about nurturing their emotional life. Some of those, born with their Moon in the 9th house feel a special connection with a culture, different from theirs.

The journey, the adventure, the imaginary dreams or philosophical endeavors can be used as a means of escaping stressful situations or battles of everyday life.

They have most probably inherited this approach to life from their mother, although it still depends on the aspects of the Moon.

Moon in the 9th house people usually have good intellectual potential and strive to build such philosophical views that help them grow spiritually.

The position of the 9th house high up in the astrological chart predetermines the high goals and vision that people with such a placement set for themselves. Sometimes these goals and visions may not come to reality, though, because of the lack of a realistic view and a sober assessment of their own strengths and abilities.

In traditional astrology, the 9th house is called the “house of dreams” and for some people with too many planets in it, goals and objectives is exactly what can remain in their lives – a dream! But in order for a dream to come true, you need abilities and a lot of work and perseverance. We can often hear phrases like “When I finally graduate …”, “If I could only …”, “If it were possible …”, etc., from Moon in the 9th house people.

They have to analyze all their unfulfilled dreams: is it a bad coincidence, or because there were gaps in their planning and implementation?

People with their Moon in the 9th house love to travel. When they can’t do this, they tend to travel in their dreams.

Often their imagination paints fabulous countries where everything is much more beautiful than where they are. They often spend some time abroad. However, since the nature of the Moon is changeable and unstable, stays abroad are relatively intermittent and short-lived.

For some people, born with their Moon in the 9th house travel abroad is associated with certain emotional experiences – these people may be looking for a connection with their own spiritual home. It is possible to feel better or worse in certain geographical areas, perhaps according to the memories of their past rebirths that are stored in their subconscious mind. Sometimes their fantasies about journeys can be used simply as a means to escape reality.

Moon in the 9th house people feel best when they plan their next vacation, when they think about the meaning of life or when they are in a state of fasting and prayer.

Moon in the 9th house people have a deep yearning to escape ‘ordinary’ life, and what better way to do it than, philosophy, religion, academic study, and the sense of freedom that travel offers.

Many of the key events and life-changing situations for Moon in the 9th house people happen during or because of a trip, or because of someone, who has come from a faraway place. Another option is that their life is highly influenced by a guru or spiritual teacher.

Moon in the 9th House Talents

Try this Powerful New Moon Manifestation Ritual

Since the intuitive nature of the Moon comes together with the abstract nature of the ninth house, this placement could also endow some people with psychic sensitivity. The aspects of the Moon will show us whether this inherent talent is put into good use: whether it is just a tendency for daydreaming, or it’s used to actively create something and help people on their journey.

Moon in the 9th house people certainly have a uniquely inventive mind and an inborn understanding of the symbolic world, which also includes different types of rituals. They may be able to access past life experiences that help them navigate their current existence with easy recognition of ‘signs’ and pointers of what their next move should be. For, example, just by seeing a bird fly by, or a certain symbol on a building, they already know whether they should proceed with caution with their plans, or whether their dreams are about to come true.

They are able to use this inner knowledge for big and small decisions, from scheduling a meeting, to buying a house.

Moon in the 9th house people literally need food for thought on a daily basis in order to feel nurtured and emotionally satisfied. They like to offer the same kind of ‘care’ and protection to others, namely, by sharing their wisdom and aiming to inspire a longing for the higher realms of existence. Another way to do this is storytelling, as they are definitely good at it. Plus, they appreciate a good story, too. They are eager to share their adventures, experiences, and what they’ve learned from them with others.

This can also be achieved through writing, since the 9th house is also related to publishing, but Moon in the 9th house people could work in the legal system and protect the rights of others as well.

Moon in the 9th House Challenges

moon in the 9th house meaning

As we mentioned еаrlier, Moon in the 9th house people might have the tendency to daydream about travel, adventure, and amazing victories of the spirit, without really doing much in real life.

The volatility of the Moon could also bring some difficulties in pursuing a higher education, because their thirst for knowledge may ebb and flow.

Their ability to learn and persevere in their studies may be highly dependent on their moods and emotional volatilities, or even health. This can make them jump from one subject to the other, not being able to get things through.

On the other hand, since their belief system, spirituality, or even religious beliefs are deeply rooted in their subconscious mind, and are very much built on family conditioning, they can become very dogmatic. Since this belief system has strong emotional roots, they may not be able to accept other people’s viewpoints and discuss them with objectivity. They may find it hard to mentally process new visions on spirituality, philosophy or religion.

Moon in the 9th House and Mother

Moon in the 9th House and Mother

Moon in the 9th house placement may speak of a very religious, spiritual, wise, and/or refined mother, who has passed her spirituality and belief system onto the child. She could also be someone from a faraway place, or considered in a way ‘exotic’ where the family lives.

If the Moon is afflicted with bad aspects, though, it could speak of a mother, who has been absent or isolated from the child in some way, and this develops in them an insatiable thirst for finding answers on the meaning of life and the cause-and-consequence of each situation.

Men with this Moon placement are often attracted to women from faraway places, which they usually find curious, exotic, and able to feed their thirst for adventure and exploration of the unknown. It is, however, common that they are unable to keep a long-term relationship, because they are constantly on the move or because they have already embarked on a new adventure before this one has run its course.

This is highly dependent on the sign, in which the Moon resides, but as a rule, men with this position lose at least one important relationship in their life, because of the above-mentioned reasons, or simply because they are constantly occupied with business trips.

Women with this position are also very daring, and they may feel the strong urge to just leave and go somewhere else, escaping from the mundane activities of daily life. I know a woman with this placement, who shared that she often feels an uncontrollable desire to buy a ticket and fly off the very next day, without any preparation or plans. The only thing that was stopping her was her family, and her Cancer husband was acting like a balancing influence in her life.

Moon in the 9th House Remedies

Moon in the 9th house people should always approach each adventure, travel activity, educational or spiritual endeavor, or even a new book, with a clear purpose in mind.

Their thirst for knowledge and new horizons is certainly inspiring, but it will mean very little if they are not able to apply the lessons learned to their earthly life in one way or another.

By walking their talk, they will also be able to better satisfy their inborn need to care and nurture others through the power of knowledge, positivity and inspiration.

Because an inspirational figure is made out of the struggles they’ve gone through and the goals they’ve achieved with sweat on their head – not out of the quotes they’ve read and the fantasies they’ve made in their head!

Moon in the 9th house people would feel happiest in a relationship where they can both travel and share very similar belief systems and outlook to life. This is the only way to make their co-existence fruitful and self-fulfilling.
