North Node in the 9th House

Having your North Node in the 9th house of the natal chart automatically also means that the South Node is located in the 3rd house. This natal placement of the nodes indicates a heavy emphasis on matters concerning communication, information flow, and knowledge. In addition, the axis shows that your life lesson also involves your attitude towards your spirituality and religion, foreign cultures, and languages and how you interact with them. As the Lunar Nodes indicate Karmic debts and connections with previous lifetimes, the native who has the North Node in the 9th house must concentrate on developing his spiritual skills during this incarnation.

Their North Node in the 9th house invites them to take a long journey beyond their cultural limits. It’s a scary adventure for them at first because they know that, outside their usual playground, they no longer have the same ease, the same skill. Outside of their bearings, their beliefs, their customs, their judgments on things and life no longer have any value and they have to accept the limits of their culture.

Whether their journey is in books, or on the surface of the globe, they end up leaving their neighborhood to enter the great culture of all humanity. The North Node in IX invites them to explore the other facets of human culture. Their way of life is to expand the limits of their consciousness. The discovery and study of philosophies, sciences, other religions, esoteric knowledge or more simply foreign countries and cultures are supports for the emancipation of their spirit which, little by little, widens. They become aware of the limits of their habits, beliefs and judgments attached to the story of their origins and put them in their place.

They begin an inner transformation that leads them to emancipate themselves from the narrow-mindedness of a culture closed in on itself. The North Node in the 9th house develops their attraction to new knowledge and distant horizons. It awakens them to the diversity of the world. Their conscience sharpens, learns the subtlety and richness of life. Like the butterfly, once a larva, then become a chrysalis, they rise towards a liberated consciousness, leave the branch to rise towards other points of view.
