The ninth house from the ascendant is called house of huge wealth, luck, success, foreign travel, father, and good deeds. These are the three main things we can know from this house.
If the lord of the ninth house is exalted or in own house or in friendly house then the above mentioned things would be favorable to the native. If debilitated or in enemy house then would get unfavorable results.
In north Indian charts, the house next to the eighth house in anti-clockwise direction is ninth house. From the natural order of zodiac sign marked in the ascendant, we can derive which zodiac sign is ninth house. For example if the ascendant is marked with 4 then the fifth house would be Pisces.
