Venus in the 9th House

With Venus in the 9th house, it is the norm to form relationships with people from other countries or to marry someone exotic, who has a broader view of life. The planet Venus represents the principle of relatedness, and what you consider to be beautiful. The 9th house in astrology rules your relationship (Venus) with the divine (9th), giving you a broader perspective on life. It rules your universal truth and beliefs and, so, in some way you are having a liaison with philosophy, religion, everything that addresses the meaning of life, and this brings all kinds of possibilities into your relationships.

Venus here usually represents a pleasant attitude to all learning matters. It can be an obvious expression as the college years being enjoyable, with lots of fun at university, and many teachers loved by you (or being adored by the teachers). Perhaps you admire a tutor or socialize with your teachers, or at least maintain pleasant relationships, and are popular among all of the students and teachers. You are most attracted to those who share in your enjoyment in the pursuit of knowledge, and partnerships are frequently formed with those who work in publishing, research, translation, law, or academics. The symbol of Venus looks like a hand mirror and signifies the mirroring process, so partners often reflect your need for adventure, love of exploring, liking for travel of the mind and body. Since the 9th house has been traditionally associated with travel, higher education, philosophy, religion, and publishing, these are things that bring love and harmony into your world.

With this position of Venus, you may search for your values in other cultures, and often relationships are not fulfilling unless there is constant growth. Hence, lovers may be met on long journeys, places of learning, or spiritual places. Relationships may feel like a journey of self-discovery, filled with new possibilities and mental or physical adventures. Your partners need to be challenging and stimulating and possess similar philosophies on life. Discovering new knowledge is enjoyable and expands your value system, and with Venus here you may need someone who loves to talk about the nature of the universe and the purpose of life. Ultimately, you express a natural appreciation for different cultures and far-off lands. You may fall in love with a country other than your own, or fall in love with someone you meet on holiday or abroad. You are magnetically drawn to great thinkers and exotic people, and see the beauty in a culture different from your own.

You find enjoyment, pleasure, and happiness when you increase your own awareness of life and have a moral code to live by. Because you recognize the immense beauty in everything foreign, and all that is greater out there, you often make an excellent diplomat or mediator and do particularly well in studies abroad by bringing people together from different cultures. With Venus in your 9th house, you may also receive money from far away and have business deals with foreigners, foreign countries, and so on.  With Venus here, you may travel in luxury and to beautiful places; you can be unsatisfied with what you find in your immediate environment. Perhaps art, beauty, or foreign diplomacy is studied, or the opportunity opens to be an advocate and you make you an ambassador of goodwill. There is a strong attraction to religious and spiritual ideals, and love comes through anything which expands the horizons. Venus here may feel the grass is greener on the other side of the fence, but relationships are more about discovering your broader values, and love, in the end, is a great voyage, journey, and flight.

With Venus in the 9th house, the individual has a basic love of philosophy, art, religion, and travel. Marriage partners and friends are met through universities and religious groups, as well as through travel to foreign shores. These people have strong ideals regarding love and may attempt to convert their loved ones to their own beliefs. Generally, they are well educated with a strong interest in artistic and cultural history. Learning Astrology: An Astrology Book for Beginners
