[00:00:00] Julia Balaz: What is the easiest way for you to receive higher guidance? Because really ninth House is calling you to connect to the intuition, and in order to do that, you need to first of all create space for it. You need to stop the inner chatter so how do you do it?

[00:00:32] Amanda Walsh: Well, hello and welcome. I am so happy that you are back here with us for our House series and today we’re gonna be taking a deep dive into the ninth house. And I am here with Galactic Astrologer and upcoming Inner Circle astrologer guide Julia Laz, who will be helping us understand all things ninth House, each week we’re releasing a new episode focused on one of the houses taught by one of our inner circle astrologer guides and mentors.

So for many years, Julia felt guided to meticulously study astrological charts of her clients after their regression hypnosis.

[00:01:53] Sessions. She was looking for some verification on extraterrestrial information that came up in so many of those sessions. As a result of analyzing close to 2000 astrological charts, including fixed star alignments, Julia feels called to share her research data confirming epic cosmic orchestration and influence of celestial bodies on our.

[00:02:17] Supporting our collective evolution, a passionate researcher of soul’s journeying through cosmos. Julia shares her intriguing discoveries on her social media and in her online courses, and she is here with us today, and we are so grateful to be talking about the ninth house, which for me just feels like the perfect house for you specifically to be talking about.

[00:02:39] Julia,

Connectedness of the Houses

[00:02:40] Amanda Walsh: how’d you feel when you got assigned ninth?

[00:02:42] Julia Balaz: Celebrated happy times. . .

[00:02:45] Amanda Walsh: Exactly. And you know, last week when we were covering the eighth house with Ryan Butler, I found it really interesting. The eighth house is just such this like deep, kind of a little bit brooding and, you know, not the most.

[00:02:59] Uplifting of conversations at times, but then when you go right to the ninth house where it’s like you went into those depths in the eighth house and now you’re coming out in the ninth house, and it’s, it’s a very different energy. And that’s one of the things that I love about the cosmos. It’s like, it’s not all one thing.

[00:03:16] We’re always moving through these different energies and they’re all within us. And so we’re having this opportunity to experience all of it. So Julia, Start here with the night house and just go high level. What does the night house represent in astrology?

[00:03:32] Julia Balaz: Thank you. And before I go there, I just want to point out what you just said there.

[00:03:35] It’s actually, actually quite genius how, each house following the previous house is kind of correcting, the extreme of that previous house. They’re correcting each other. When you think about it, it, it’s actually quite amazing how it truly is. So, so we go from the steepest dive of the eight house to the highest ties of the ninth.

[00:03:56] Wow.

[00:03:56] Amanda Walsh: And, and, and just reflecting on what we covered in the eighth house, one of the, the extremes of it may be one of the things Ryan brought up quite a bit, which is that anxiety and fear and, depression on some level could be potentially seen as one of the extremes. And what I’m hearing from you is that what the Ninth House offers is almost like an antidote to some of those experiences.

[00:04:22] Julia Balaz: Yes. Like let’s be resourceful. Let’s find a way. Let’s figure this out. It’s like problem solving house.

[00:04:29] Amanda Walsh: Oh my gosh. You use the word exactly that he said. He said, if you’re resourced, if you’re going through an eighth house transit and you’re resourced, then that’s when you actually get to use, get the benefits of that, that challenging time in your life.

[00:04:43] So amazing that you’re literally echoing without having even seen the eighth

[00:04:47] Julia Balaz: house, the synchronicities, um, Yeah. So if you look at the traditional astrology, um, which derives meaning of different planets and houses, it’s based on how nature manifests in everyday experiences, though by traditional astrology.

Optimism, Long-Distance Travel, Educadeation

[00:05:04] Julia Balaz: The ninth house is the, house where sun has its greatest joy. If we think about the, transit of the sun going clockwise, then the sun is at its highest. Point of heat at around three o’clock, which is the ninth house position, and that’s where you have the greatest light. Perhaps we can, use the metaphor of the light bulb moment where suddenly you have these, um, epiphanies and you see solutions and choices that you didn’t see before.

[00:05:36] But when the ninth house is activated, suddenly you have, that consciousness available to you, accessible to you, and certainly people who. A lot of, you know, beneficial energy in their nine house, and we’ll talk about these nuances, later. They are naturally wired to be solution focused and to be quite positively, oriented looking.

[00:05:59] The at the glass half full, very optimistic, always looking at the bright side of life and in country, we can say the same about people who would have maybe quite, d. Planetary positions or aspects to the align house, they may actually quite struggle with that. I mean, may be quite pessimistic, so. Mm, over all that.

[00:06:18] Amanda Walsh: Okay, awesome. So can you give us like sort of a, you you’ve said optimistic, um, solution oriented. What are some other just qualities of, of the knife?

[00:06:30] Julia Balaz: Yeah, so some of the . Most, um, known keywords, which we can, um, you know, just use them as a bullet, bullet points and derive so many more, meaningful, expressions than manifestations of the night house.

[00:06:42] The one that is, most commonly, associated is, Distance, travel far away. Those types of journeys that you maybe make once in a lifetime. It is associated with pilgrimage because back in the day, an ancient times traveling far away from home was not common at all. If you left home, it would be for, usually for pilgrimage or some, greater mission.

[00:07:07] Something really meaningful and important. So it usually speaks, you know, the ninth house manifestations. When it is activated, it is often associated with, countries, you know, far away. And it can be like a physical travel at distance or it can be mental journeys. Exploring. Uh, distant places like Cosmos.

Significations of the 3 Decans

[00:07:31] Julia Balaz: Um, mentally, I’ve noticed, if I can go into that detail now, when planets in the ninth house are positioned in the first deacon, first 10 degrees. The manifestations of the night house tend to be about travel, physical travel and living in other countries or marrying someone, from another country, depending on where the rulers are and how it’s connected to other houses.

[00:07:54] When the night house planets are in the second deacon, um, twen, uh, 11 to 20 degrees, um, it tends to be more like mental travel and a lot of study and education and choosing, you know, university and things like that or, or teaching. Kind of in the mental field, and then if the planets are in the third deacon sort of 20 to 30 degrees, that tends to be more about spiritual pursuits, religious pursuits, things like that.

[00:08:22] So I would like to invite the viewers to pay attention to that and see if it actually manifests this way in your own life as well. That is

[00:08:28] Amanda Walsh: fascinating and I haven’t heard it broken down that way. Can you do that with all the houses? Like have you looked at the deas of all the houses?

[00:08:35] Julia Balaz: Yes, yes. I’ve been paying attention to this for many years and it’s spot on, so.

[00:08:39] Okay. And, and just for physical, Second Deacon is mental, and third deacon is spiritual.

[00:08:47] Amanda Walsh: Whoa. Yeah. Fascinating. And for people who don’t know what Deacon is, can you just give us a quick, a quick definition?

[00:08:53] Julia Balaz: So every Zodiac sign has 30 degrees, and if you split that into three deacons of 10 degrees each, that’s what it

[00:09:00] Amanda Walsh: is.

[00:09:01] Hmm. And what if you’re right on that 10 or right on that 20? Like which one are you in the one of before or after? It’s

[00:09:09] Julia Balaz: a bit of both. Okay. I know.

[00:09:12] Amanda Walsh: Okay. Amazing. Okay, so we’re talking about travel. We’re talking about going great distances. This can be either physical, mental, or spiritual. We’re talking about optimism, and learning and

[00:09:28] Julia Balaz: teaching.

Personal Beliefs & Alchemy

[00:09:29] Julia Balaz: Yes. And another huge area that is really prevalent here is personal belief system in terms of kind of our, uh, personal alchemy journey of how we evolve as a, as a being. When we get to the ninth house, we start to wonder what is the meaning of my life? What am I here to do? What is the meaning of anything I do?

[00:09:50] So really kind of deep philosophical question.

[00:09:54] Amanda Walsh: Julia, we’re gonna be doing a 13th episode as part of this house series that is covering the different house systems. So Gemini, Brett’s gonna be teaching that one.

Julia’s Use of the House Systems

[00:10:04] Amanda Walsh: And I’m just curious to ask you, now, we don’t need to go too deep into all the different houses and nuances, but which house system do you use?

[00:10:12] Julia Balaz: I, because I was interested in deep psychology, I. Plaus throughout the years when I worked with my clients going through regression hypnosis when I listened to their life stories, because that told me a lot about the stuff that was underdeveloped and stuff that was overdeveloped in their life. Mm-hmm.

[00:10:29] But now more and more so I look at whole house system. First really started to work more with the archetypal energies and also for transition forecast. I find whole house system being very accurate, but it’s really down to personal experience and journey and seeing what works for you. Yeah, exactly. They both have, uh, meaning in place for different things.

[00:10:47] Right.

[00:10:48] Amanda Walsh: I, I’ve been, um, reiterating that as much as possible for, for people cuz it can be so overwhelming and confusing, especially when you’re new. It’s like, wait, there’s a, a bunch of different house systems. Like how do I choose? So basically you’re saying you started with Plaus and that’s what you used for how many years in your practice?

[00:11:05] Seven. Seven years and now you’re starting to branch out and, and experiment and find different times and, and, and opportunities to use other

[00:11:15] Julia Balaz: house systems, correct? Yes. I did use whole house system before too, but for transits and future predictions at that time. But because I was looking at the childhood, um, issues, subconscious issues and conditioning, I love plastics for that.

Planets in the 9th House

[00:11:28] Amanda Walsh: .Okay, so you ta you started to touch on this in terms of planetary placements in the ninth house. Can we dive into that a little bit more? What does it mean when you have, Planets in the ninth house. And conversely, what does it mean when you don’t have any planets in the ninth house?

[00:11:46] Julia Balaz: Okay, so depending what planet is there, it’ll manifest differently.

[00:11:51] And also then, it will connect to different houses, in the rest of the chart. So it’s, uh, you know, each of this element will add additional puzzle pieces and clues to how we find higher meaning in life, or what are our personal beliefs about life, how we relate to travel, how we relate to education, and all these things that we’ve discussed already.

[00:12:13] So, for someone who would have several planets or even like telium, of, you know, multiple planets, more than three planets in the ninth house, they will tend to naturally be focused in direction of, you know, thinking about higher truth or searching for truth, being in quest. Wisdom, knowledge, information, and it’ll all, you know, Monicas differently depend on which Zodiac signs are coming into the mix of that, and connection to the other houses.

[00:12:42] I wanna point out, if there is Saturn, for example, in the ninth house, then the person actually might turn out being quite skeptical about any religious, beliefs. Any philosophy or even about astrology because ninth house is also a link to astrology and astrologers. So someone with Saturday Night House might actually be quite dogmatic and if we add a Mars to the mix, they might actually be fighting against astrology against philosophy or religious.

[00:13:11] And it’s kind of funny because they’re, living a big expression of astrology in their own charts or the paradox of life. Yes, I’ve noticed with people who have, for example, like Kyron in their ninth house or Lith in their ninth house, when we looked at their past’s lives or ancestral stories, when we look at their soul records, they were reliving an echo of previous experiences where they suffered because of religious dogma.

[00:13:39] Where they say, for example, lived as shaman or, naturopaths and when the church was rising and trying. This empowered everyone that had direct access to source from within, they suffered that fate and now they’re reliving the similar circumstances with Kyron or Lilith in the ninth house.

[00:13:58] And they are called to stand up for their values and beliefs and not let their power being taken away, , by matic judgemental people any longer. So that seemed to have been every single time when I’ve seen these alignments. I will continue with few more planets if I may. So if we have someone who has, for example, Venus in their ninth house, they will navigate towards, beliefs and personal life philosophy that is, connected to, music.

[00:14:29] They may. Become composers of like devotional music or meditation, music or art that becomes quite like a therapy. And you know, their philosophy of life, of their personal expression. If we have someone with, Mars in their night house, they may navigate towards things like martial arts or tai chi, something that is action, connected to taking action.

[00:14:54] But at the same time, there is some higher meaning or, uh, philosophy in. People who tend to have a lot of plans like say son Mercury in their ninth house tend to actually be prominent teachers or journalists, publicists, writers, gurus even. And it very much depends on if there is a connection to the tent house as well.

[00:15:17] If, if we get to point of, um, teachers or profess. Of, you know, higher education that there has to, there usually is a connection to the ninth house as well. Perhaps the rulers of the houses are actually sitting in, in each other’s, houses.

[00:15:30] Mm. So, and, and that brings me to the point where, where there is no connection to the tent house and ninth house.

[00:15:37] I tend to see that with people who have a career. They choose a career that is really just, paying the bills. They don’t necessarily have a higher meaning. They don’t see higher meaning in what they do, and they don’t really mind. It doesn’t bother them. They find higher meaning in other things, maybe in their hobby.

[00:15:55] You know, taking up art class or, or reading books that, that expand their horizons, but their career is a separate thing altogether. Whereas people do have connection between the pent and mind house. They will not be happy and satisfied in their career until they do something that aligns with their higher beliefs that are represented by the ninth house alignment.

[00:16:16] Amanda Walsh: Fascinating. Wow. You, you didn’t cover

[00:16:19] Julia Balaz: Pluto. Pluto and the ninth. It’s quite intense and transformational. Uh, these people would seek, philosophies and perhaps religious experiences that are quite transformational and very intense. So these would, be people who perhaps go and live in Ash Shram. And that’s, you know, it’s like full dive into religious beliefs.

[00:16:42] Very intense. Okay, so if

[00:16:45] Amanda Walsh: you’re listening to this and wondering how to figure out if you have a connection between your ninth and 10th house, or if you have a connection between your ninth house and any other house in your chart, this is where rulership comes in. And actually, Kaylan Castell who did our fourth house.

[00:17:01] Used a different word besides rulership. She used resonance, which I was like, Ooh, I like that. I love that too. Yeah, if there’s resonance between the houses, so you can go to

[00:17:11] Amanda Walsh: and get our little free guide that helps you figure out. How to find the different rulers of each house or, or the different resonances between each house, and then how those might be connected.

[00:17:26] So you’ll be able to look at your chart and start to put these things together for yourself. So again, that’s free. That’s at astrology Okay.

Connection between 9th & 10th Houses

[00:17:35] Julia Balaz: May I give you an example of when there is a connection? So for example, Midheaven, the tent house is, cusp of cancer, cancer of the cusp of the tent house, Gemini at the ninth.

[00:17:47] And Moon, which is ruled by cancer or rules cancer is in the ninth house, for example. And so that person can become, , a writer, of something that is actually quite, you know, touching the emotion, focused on the emotions in some way. Yeah,

[00:18:03] Amanda Walsh: for example. I love it. Okay, this is great. Is Night

[00:18:09] Julia Balaz: House Gemini in Jupiter with this connection as well?

[00:18:12] Uh, there was Jupi in Gemini in the night. So that, that was the writer’s journalist person? Yeah. Mm,

[00:18:20] Amanda Walsh: great.

Connection between 9th & 3rd Houses

[00:18:21] Amanda Walsh: Okay. Is there a connection between the ninth house and the third house?

[00:18:26] Julia Balaz: Yes. So with astrology, as we know, the 12 houses are, we have these six opposing archetypes that are intricately connected.

[00:18:36] So whenever we want to expand, Our ninth house or where we, when we want to shine our greatest light, when we want to evolve and be the best version we can be, we should always also look at our third house because, you know, we can focus so much on higher philosophy, gaining knowledge, and higher understanding.

[00:18:59] Let’s say if we have, Capricorn, ruling the ninth. We need to look at the cancer as well that will be opposing, in this example, to deliver the high wisdom in a nurturing way so that people can connect to it. Because the ninth house, if you think of it as a h House of God by traditional astrology, and we think of the ninth house as a house of the goddess.

[00:19:24] And also something that is connected to the people everyday human commoners. We really want to bring that higher wisdom into nibble sizes, everyday experience. We want to be able to be relatable and connect on a human level. That really is the kind of higher octave of expressing the ninth house evolution of our.

[00:19:46] Amanda Walsh: Oh God, I just, I, I marvel all the time, Julia, at how brilliant the design of the cosmos is and how it’s just, if, if we’re paying attention to all these aspects there, there’s a balance that we can create in our lives. It’s n you know, sometimes people talk about, You know, new age or spiritual people, and that gets like lumped into one thing often as being woo woo and ungrounded and like, you know, out there and not able to manifest reality in their lives, in their day-to-day lives.

[00:20:20] So if you’re paying attention to this balance or this po polar energy, then you would be tapping into both aspects of those things

[00:20:30] Julia Balaz: a hundred percent. And we could go on and give example of each Zodiac sign and the follow opposite of that, how to deliver it. But I’m not sure if we have that much time.

[00:20:40] Hmm.

[00:20:41] Amanda Walsh: Well, and now that you’ve brought it up, I’m sure that everybody would want you to do it. So I think it, I think it’d be

[00:20:46] Julia Balaz: helpful. Yeah, maybe a few. So if for example, we have are Aries at the cusp of the ninth house, it would be someone who, um, navigates towards a philosophy that. That actually enhances their own identity, how they, uh, what they think about themselves.

[00:21:03] The more they learn, the more they know, the more confident they become in themselves and they’re quite, uh, fiery, um, in their de delivery and, you know, kind of leadership pioneering way. But they need to always look towards the third house as well. Where, um, in this example, Libra would be sitting. To deliver their higher wisdom, higher understanding in a, in a balanced, harmonious way, considering the other people’s, uh, opinion.

[00:21:28] The shadow side of Aries nine talent would be someone who kinda speaks at you and is not really listening to whether actually you are interested even in, in what they’re teaching and so on. Or if, if it’s not really connected to the philosophy and learning, areas lined house, it would be, traveling and, and seeking adventures that are very fiery and maybe even kind of risky.

[00:21:53] But they have to be careful and find some balance. And Libra third house, making sure that they’re safe. . Okay. If we have TAs, in at the cusp of ninth house, it may be someone who, , needs to h. Um, look for philosophy or religion that engages their, um, physical senses. And the teaching philosophy needs to be quite physical.

[00:22:19] It could also be people who, love to learn and study about, science. Anything that enhances human wellbeing or s. Enhances something to do with birth agriculture, things like that. But as they learn their philosophy with horrors, ninth house people, they tend to stop at some point and they’re quite satisfied with that.

[00:22:38] And they keep holding that same philosophy for way too long. They need to look at their Scorpio opposing in the third house and continue evolving, continue expanding, and allowing other people’s opinions too. So you, you can see, uh, where I’m going with.

[00:22:54] Amanda Walsh: I love it. It’s so helpful.

Activating the 9th house

[00:22:56] Amanda Walsh: Okay, so there’s a, now we’re going through some of the commonly asked questions.

[00:23:02] One of them is, how do you activate the ninth house in your chart? So how can you bring these kinds of energies more into your chart on or more into your life on a daily basis?

[00:23:14] Julia Balaz: Yeah, so I would say the first place is to look at the Zodiac that is ruling the ninth house, because that will tell you how you, will find it.

[00:23:23] What is the easiest way for you to receive higher guidance? Because really ninth House is calling you to connect to the intuition, and in order to do that, you need to first of all create space for it. You need to stop the inner chatter so how do you do it? People who have, say Capricorn, in, at the cusp of their ninth house, you would want to. Create, silence for yourself and what will motivate you.

[00:23:55] There is kind of always behind, uh, the scene motivation for Capric nine house, where what you’re learning, what you’re receiving has to have a, meaning, a long-term goal that will benefit others. It’s very kind of father like, protector, essence. Martin Luther King, for example, has night house, uh, and Capricorns, so.

[00:24:15] You know, for people like that, you need to find something where it’ll be useful, it’ll be helpful. Mm-hmm. . So if you just do book for the sake of reading it without being able to actually apply it somehow, somewhere in your life, you will not do it. It’ll not speak to you, it’ll not really evolve you. As one example, or if we mentioned the Aries, uh, night house, that person will need to do either Tai Chi or something like that.

[00:24:41] Like they need to have a movement. So look at the meaning of what does it mean when say, Libra is at your ninth house. And then look for philosophy of religion that is in alignment with that, because that will respeak to and really expand you the most if you find the one that is not matching, your modality.

[00:25:04] Like either fire, earth, air water. It will, you’ll just give up and do something else. Mm-hmm.

[00:25:14] Amanda Walsh: I love it. Okay. That’s, that’s helpful. So you, basically, anything that has to do with your higher learning and that spiritual expansion, it needs to be aligned with the Zodiac sign at the house, the ninth house cusp, that’s the like, flavor of your spiritual quest or your, travel or your, exploration or adventure.

[00:25:37] Julia Balaz: Yes. This is where you have the highest potential to develop your kind of evolving self, expand your horizon, grow, learn.

[00:25:49] Amanda Walsh: Yeah. Okay.

Is the 9th House Exotic?

[00:25:50] Amanda Walsh: Why do people say that the ninth house is exotic? That’s a lovely question.

[00:25:57] Julia Balaz: Well, as I mentioned before, traveling away from home was not quite common and it would usually be a long set journey.

[00:26:07] So it is strongly, and health is strongly connected to far away places, which would tend to be exotic. Um, People who have alignments or planet replacement in ninth house, they will naturally be curious about other cultures, other countries, or they would marry someone from other cultures, especially if you have ruler of the seventh house in the ninth house, or vice versa.

[00:26:32] It’s always like by the book example of someone marrying, someone from other country, you know, far away, distant. Mm.

Where Should I Travel?

[00:26:41] Amanda Walsh: And can the ninth House actually tell you where you should travel?

[00:26:49] Julia Balaz: Yes, I believe so. Again, I suppose someone who has Aries at their, uh, at the cusp of their ninth house, it, they will be guided to travel.

[00:26:59] Somewhere and for reason that is aligned with Aries frequency. It could be, and, and remember again with the nine house, it’s like once in a lifetime journey, something that really can be transformational and really expand our worldview. So Aries one might go to save up a really long time and go to Grand Prix, formula, r Racing truck, and they meet, new connections there and expand their worldview there.

[00:27:25] Someone who would have, let’s say Aquarius at the cusp of night House. They would navigate towards experiences and countries and places traveling where it’s unusual, very, almost like the. Maybe like a communities like, uh, ashram or, or, or spiritual, uh, places or this kind of new earth idea where we live in harmony with nature, um, or somewhere like for technologically advanced conference, Aquarius, mind, house, travel, reason, , you know, so,

[00:27:59] it’s always associated with that because that’s how we expand. Our intuition will guide us to something like that, or, in Night House or so Libra at the cusp of Night House, it’ll be, traveling for connecting to art or the music or something like that, you know?

[00:28:17] Amanda Walsh: Yes. Wow. Okay. So we can even get direction on where to travel with this.

[00:28:22] Mm-hmm. .

Where Should I Go to College?

[00:28:23] Amanda Walsh: Can Knight House help you decide where to go to college or university or whether or not to go to college or univers?

[00:28:31] Julia Balaz: Yes, absolutely. So let’s say Scorpio at the cusp of night house. It would be person that will navigate towards studying deep psychology or astrology or oc cult, uh, sciences, um, things like that.

[00:28:45] If it is Virgo at the cusp of night house, it would be someone who might be more inclined to choose, higher education, connected to medical, science. And in fact, just last week I was looking at chart of an 18 year old who dis in 2023, has Pluto entering his ninth house, and he is deciding whether going through university is astro visited.

[00:29:09] His tent house is called Aquarius, or, traveling abroad and living with his, family abroad and just kinda expanding. Religious beliefs based on the family that is living agnostic, life. So either say he, his ninth house will completely transform his, worldview with Pluto going through there. So, wow.

[00:29:32] Amanda Walsh: It’s amazing. I, I love when it, it works like that. I mean, actually even in the eighth house discussion, we were talking about how textbook it can be, how literal it can be when these things happen. It’s not like, You know, giving you a slight indicator. It’s like specific spot on. Yes. It’s amazing. Yes. Okay.

9th House vs. Sagittarius

[00:29:51] Amanda Walsh: Is there a difference or what’s the difference between the ninth house and Sagittarius?

[00:29:58] Julia Balaz: Really good question. So with the ninth house, ninth house tells us about where, and the Sagittarius would tell us how we experience the. You know, if we, replace Sagittarius with any other Boak sign, the ninth house will get completely different flavor and will be experienced completely differently.

[00:30:21] But it still remains ninth house where it’s about the higher philosophy, religion, traveling, um, higher purpose. I suppose the connection in the modern astrology of, assigning Sagittarius to the ninth house and Jupiter as a ruler of the ninth house is because, we know Sagittarius to have the qualities of fiery, expansive, very positive, eager to learn, always new horizons.

[00:30:51] And there is some, resonance to travel distance, expansion, things like that. And then Jupyter is all about expansion. Good fortune, things like that. So there is some resonance to it, but there are diff two different things. One is where, one is how

[00:31:06] Amanda Walsh: mm. I like how you’re explaining that.

[00:31:08] There’s definitely a lot of confusion around that. So I’m grateful that you’re, you’re reiterating some of the things that other astrologers are saying in terms of sort of, yes, there’s resonance between those two things, but decoupling them so that we can look at them as. Entities. You know, there’s the ninth house and then there’s Sagittarius, and then your ninth house will not necessarily have the flavor also of Sagittarius.

[00:31:35] Your ninth house may have the flavor of some other Zodiac sign, whichever one is on the cusp, right? Yeah. Yeah.

[00:31:42] Julia Balaz: Mm-hmm. .

No Planets in the 9th House

[00:31:42] Amanda Walsh: All right. So Julia, what if someone’s looking at their chart and going, okay, I don’t, I don’t have anything in the ninth house. There’s no planets in here. What does that mean for them?

[00:31:52] Julia Balaz: It’s important to gain a lot of information through the Zodiac sign that is at the cusp of the ninth house.

[00:31:58] That’ll give you so much information. And then where is the ruler of the ninth house? In the natal charge, there will be a dynamic, a connection. The will flow between two area areas of the house. And it can be quite p. . Even if, even though your ninth house is empty, there may be several planets, say in the eight house or tent house, and they’re directly linked to the ninth house in one way or another.

[00:32:22] So actually it, it is activating your ninth house that way. Okay, so it’s not all black and white.

[00:32:29] Amanda Walsh: Can you give us an example of that? So let’s, let’s pretend someone has an empty quote unquote ninth house mm-hmm. . And just give us an example of, but you know, finding the ruler and then finding where that planetary ruler is in the chart, and then how you would like synthesize that together.

[00:32:46] Julia Balaz: Yes. So for example, my ninth house is, ruled by Capricorn. Capricorn is at the cusp of my ninth house. It’s. And the ruler of that is in my sixth house. The ruler of that, which is Saturn. Saturn is in my sixth house, and there is also connection to three planets in my eighth house. Including Uranus, which is, uh, ruling my tent house.

[00:33:13] So there is like a whole connection between 10, 9, 8, and sixth house, which is reflected in my career, as uh, regression hypnotist or teaching astrology. So my ninth house of Capricorn, it’s important for me anytime I learn something that I can apply it as a, something that helps people and.

[00:33:36] You know, in a really .Meaningful way. And anything I do in terms of daily duties, you know, the ruler, the Saturn is in my fixed house. I, my everyday, affairs are connected to my teachings. My philosophy, like there is a deep connection between these two houses and then it also kinda links into my career fully and completely.

[00:34:02] Or for example, okay, the ruler of the ninth house being in the fourth house. So it is typically someone who completely takes on the beliefs of their family, their parents, everything that household believed in. They will continue on in their, in those beliefs, in their own like philosophy. They’ll be completely like one and the same thing.

[00:34:27] Does that cover , the

[00:34:28] Amanda Walsh: example? Yes. Yes. It’s great. I love just helping it come to life a little bit more so people can look at their own chart and start to go, oh, okay, I can see how these things might be linked together and how this is playing out in my life. And, and, and even taking it a step further, how I can actually use this understanding to make even more, Confident choices in my life and, and, and affirm who I, who I think I am.

[00:34:53] But like just actually have the confirmation from the chart that yes, like this is who I am. I don’t need to try and be anything but this, and I can just focus on living the highest expression of what this

[00:35:03] 9th house Gallery: is.

More Examples

[00:35:04] Julia Balaz: Thank you. I wanna share one example . That is usually hard to translate into everyday experiences.

[00:35:09] Usually when the ninth house is linked to the 12th house, by ruler. It tends to be people who need a lot of solitude to reflect on their, higher life philosophy, higher meaning of life, and who often ponder the importance of the subconscious and everything that happens, in the unseen world, mentally, physically, spiritually.

[00:35:29] And again, look at the deacons of where, are the planet’s positioned. And one more example of my husband who has a fourth house in Pisces. And Jupiter in his ninth house at a very early degree. So it’s about the physical experience expression of the ninth house rather than philosophy. Philosophy or teaching setting.

[00:35:50] One would presume that Jupiter in ninth house, that it’ll be a lot of expansion and the person will be really preoccupied with searching for higher meaning. But it’s not the case with my husband, uh, much like he gets whatever new concept comes up, but he’s not necessarily seeking it. I feel the manifestation of his, ruler of fourth in the.

[00:36:08] Was really about moving abroad. The, the minute he, finished his education, he moved out and he was really quite happy. Um, wow. You

[00:36:16] Amanda Walsh: know. Wow. Amazing.

[00:36:18] Julia Balaz: Uh, Julia, I’d love to use this example as well because it is, uh, the new ones o of these, um, o o of, in particular, Leo Inline house, which is his case. I would presume if I didn’t know this person, that Leo Knight Hauser will be someone who will really crave to be seen and heard in teaching higher philosophy, but it’s not his case at all.

[00:36:39] It, it really was about moving abroad. And today, as I was reflecting on it, I realize that he shines the most whenever we travel abroad. Whenever he’s in completely new environment, he, he’s in his element. He loves exploring, getting to learn, uh, about the new places. So that’s how that Leo is, um, manifesting there.

[00:36:58] And again, it’s perhaps because it is Jupyter at a very early degree, it’s really about the traveling rather than, you know, higher education and teaching, although the physical, the night house

[00:37:07] Amanda Walsh: mm-hmm. , the, the physical part, like you were saying earlier. So the, the first one through 10 being physical. 10 through 20 being mental and then 20 through 30 being more the spiritual.

[00:37:19] Yeah. Realms. Wow. Fascinating. And how validating for him and, and, and actually how directing for him because now he knows that that’s an important part of life for him. It’s not a nice to have or. , you know, it’s not an indulgent luxury. It’s like part of his wiring that he, when he does those things, that’s when he experiences the most expansion, where he is the most himself.

[00:37:43] You know, all those things. It’s beautiful. Yeah. Yeah. Wow. And how lucky for him that you know that about him? Like how beautiful? Because then you don’t have to, to think about him being any other way, it’s like just encouraging him to be who he is in that. Absolutely. Yeah. Beautiful. Julia,

Julia’s Mastery Class

[00:38:00] Amanda Walsh: now as an inner circle astrologer coming up, what will your masterclass be for our members, our students

[00:38:10] Galactic center, super galactic center, great attractor and sharply attractor, these massive, mighty black holes, magnetic forces and how they influence evolution of our consciousness on individual and collective level and bringing that actually into.

[00:38:27] If you have, you know, Sagittarius. Um, degrees, uh, early Scorpio degrees, early Libra degrees. They’re connected to these, uh, powerful, forces. If you have these in the ninth house, I found through so many students in our course that you have access to quantum awareness. People are wired to cost me consciousness.

[00:38:49] They are able to perceive things in a very multidimensional way. So if Night House has any of these, like lactic center, SU Galactic Center does the attractors. It, it’s like a whole other level of consci. Oh my gosh. Needs to be that way for any people that have these alignments. So

[00:39:07] it’s gonna be an amazing thing to explore with you.

[00:39:09] Julia, I’m having an insight in your chart, and one of the reasons why I really love you as a teacher, well as a human, but also as a teacher, is, is it, I can feel that Capricorn. Uh, ninth house because you are able to convey very, like, mind blowing out their, like cosmic ideas in a very grounded and practical and believable, you know, there’s the, there’s something so tangible about the way that you do it, whereas I could see someone else maybe it being just so out there that most people can’t get it and they can’t understand why.

[00:39:47] Matter in their life today, but you are very uniquely skilled at doing that. And so I love having that little insight in your chart and then watching it play out, um, in the way that you show up and teach and facilitate and all of it. It’s really, really beautiful to watch it in action.

[00:40:03] Julia Balaz: Thank you so much.

Nodes in the 9th House

[00:40:04] Julia Balaz: That brings me to a point of mentioning the notes because we didn’t talk about them having them in the ninth house. So someone who would have felt note in their ninth house, they tend to re, sorry. Note, note, in the ninth. Note, note in night house, they will tend to, uh, want to just stay away from anything religious and dogmatic and philosophical.

[00:40:25] They’ll just prefer to be in the Gemini way. That’s their comfort zone, kind of socialite experience. And the other way around. If you have nor note node in third house, it will be your nature to talk about higher wisdom. Philosophy, things that are out there. Mm-hmm. And I speak from experience and it, this is actually something that really helped me bring higher wisdom into digestible nibble sizes because my north node is in Gemini, so I understand that for many, many lifetimes I was seeking truth, living on the mountain, um, you know, being astrologer hidden.

[00:41:05] The, the house just with the telescope and, you know, moving, uh, charts, but not really delivering it to society. And in this life, I’m not allowed to do that. I have to be connected to humanity and deliver it in an understandable, um, you know, nimble sizes.

[00:41:22] Amanda Walsh: Oh my gosh. Thankfully for us. Yeah, thankfully for us, that is the wiring this time.

[00:41:28] So thank you, Julia, for selecting that beautiful design and thank you universe. So amazing.

[00:42:37] Amanda Walsh: astrology 23. IC as in inner circle, and then the numbers 23. Wow. Anything else you wanna say before we wrap up,

[00:42:47] Julia Balaz: Julia? Just adding the fixed stars to, to the picture. Ah, yes. Yeah. I highly recommend people to look


[00:42:57] Julia Balaz: At that different degrees of various known fixed stars, and if you have those aligned to any of the planets in the mind, how you can kinda work with that high wisdom of that.

[00:43:06] Star system to, to help you evolve because people who would have, for example, Urus connected to their night house are serious. They tend to have these qualities of deep, profound wisdom, very ancient wisdom and connection to, to being, I find. So there is another layer you can go even deeper if that speaks to you.

[00:43:27] Amanda Walsh: It’s endless. I love how multifaceted it is and, and if you’re listening to this going, what fix stars, Artur, what are you even talking about? It’s okay. All these different layers of the, for me, it’s like the code of reality. it. They will, you will get exposed to them and you will be r. , when you’re ready for them, you’ll be able to retain it and it won’t feel overwhelming.

[00:43:49] So whatever amount you can grasp right now, that’s the perfect amount for you, and you will just continue to ripen in this journey and get more and more and more from your immersion in this language and in this, You know, way of perceiving the world. So it it to, what I love to say is just enjoy the journey.

[00:44:11] Relax. There’s no grades, there’s no destination. It continues to unfold as you just continue to say yes to going deeper. So, just wanna leave you with that little reminder and really looking forward to connecting with you next week for the 10th house.
