Saturn in the ninth house denotes a studious and meditative mental attitude towards all higher thought pursuits. It favours the scientific and philosophical more than the religious mind and often causes the native to investigate astrology, metaphysics, and psychic studies generally. In the unawakened it denotes some stupidity with regard to higher thought questions and tends to produce self- deception, and a very crafty and subtle mentality. If afflicted by Mars or Uranus it tends to produce madness, or grave mental affliction. This is not a good position for voyages, travels or foreign affairs. If Saturn is in good aspect with the Sun from this house it denotes the true religious spirit and makes the native faithful to whatever causes he espouses.
