Moon in 9th House
Those with Moon in 9th house need a worldview or personal philosophy through which the world can be understood. The Moon here can absorb early teachings of religion, political and social views from one of the parents. The emotions and responses are directed towards higher learning, foreign concerns and the individual may feel happier in foreign lands.
There is an instinctive urge to roam a field and they may be fond of travel and search for meaning in life afar. The type nurtures themselves through intellectual stimulation and conceptual frameworks and may explore educational fields rather than going on physical journeys.
Holidays and those far away places may hold sentimental memories, and they are best fed when learning about different cultures, beliefs and religions. Sometimes the individual settles in a home abroad, and perhaps even female relatives are religious and travel abroad. I have a partner with this placement and his mother’s side of the family are very religious/Nuns and have travelled the world, females may also broaden the native’s understanding. The individual may feel comfortable around foreigners and may take care of others abroad.
The Moon in the 9th house often exhibits an uncanny ability to foretell the outcome towards which events re leading. There is a natural receptivity to philosophy and religion and intuitive grasp of concepts and symbols. The feelings give access to what the mind cannot rationally comprehend. Although those with this placement may rely on a faith which has been inherited via the family and culture, they have an ability to adapt the philosophy to changing influences and conditions.
Moon in the 9th House
This is a position that can indicate a deep longing for stimulation above and beyond the everyday, mundane routine. You are a philosophical sort, interested and curious about the world, other people, and perhaps different cultures. You can be extremely restless and discontented if you don’t have a definite goal in mind.
You might find yourself longing to be somewhere else when you are unhappy, imagining that if you were to move or travel, you would be much happier. However, this attitude can only keep you from enjoying and improving upon the situation you are now in, only serving to make you feel more unhappy in the present and with your current circumstances. Trying to avoid the attitude that "the grass is greener on the other side" will be important, while attending to your needs to get away from time to time will help scratch the seemingly incurable itch for something more.
You may have done extensive traveling in your early years, or in some way had a background which enables you to understand and identify with many different types of people or cultures. You have a craving for things which are far away and foreign or for things you have never experienced before. You want to completely immerse yourself in the feelings and tastes of a new place, rather than simply have facts or an intellectual appreciation. Emotionally, too, you are restless and something of a wanderer.
