About the 9th House
Opposite the Moon is the Sun, of course. And so no surprise that the Ninth House is the House of the Sun.
To the ancient Greeks, the Sun was Apollo, who oversaw the Oracles of Delphi. And so prophesies, dreams and mysteries found their place in the 9th house.
All ways to explore the mysteries, philosophy, religion and the like belonged in the Ninth House. In other words, anything that can get you outside of your comfort zone so you can grow.
