MERCURY IN 1ST  | 2ND  | 3RD  | 4TH  | 5TH  | 6TH  | 7TH  | 8TH  | 9TH  | 10TH  | 11TH |  12TH  | HOUSE

 Education may involve a formal teacher-classroom setting, or you may study independently or take a correspondence course. Topics are diverse and not necessarily limited to a college curriculum. It is the keen interest and the concentrated study that usually characterize Mercury in the 9th house of solar return chart, not the topic of interest or classroom attendance. 

Even those who study on their own tend to be very interested or even obsessed with a specific topic. 

It is also possible that you are the teacher rather than the student. If so, you are probably just starting out in the profession or need to rework your lesson plans.


Your interest in the subject matter is usually high, and you make a conscious effort to present the information enthusiastically. Unenthusiastic teachers with this placement may need to go bac k to school and recapture the thrill of learning for them-selves. They may also need to reassess their beliefs concerning the teaching profession. 

Teachers will not be the only ones reassess-ing their beliefs in regard to their reality. Everyone with a 9th house Mercury will be involved in this reevaluation process and all types of beliefs will be evaluated. The 9th house rules mundane beliefs as well as philosophical. Misconceptions, prejudices, and unrealistic expectations fall under the ruler-ship of the 9th. 

If you are involved  a difficult situation, and you have any planets in the 9th house of your solar return chart, you may have misconceptions that are contributing to your problems or complicating the issues.

Planet in Solar Return Chart Aspecting to Mercury

 Mercury in the 9th indicates that the assimilation of new information may help you to deal with these problems or issues. What you learn from your educational pursuits may directly apply to your present situation. This is the time to use your education to reassess your beliefs and philosophy of life. Situations you are involved in will naturally stimulate philosophical adjustments, but you can foster this reevaluation 

process by actively seeking information directly related to present situations or issues. 
If you have written a book or plan to write a book, this may be a good time for you to approach a publisher or contact a literary agent. Communication with those in the publishing business can help you with your project. Generally, though, publishing itself is indicated by more than the placement of Mercury in the 9th house. Usually, the Sun in the 9th or a 9th house stellium is more indicative of publishing. If you view your book as a career achievement, placements in the 10th may suggest publication. 

This is also the case with traveling. Mercury in the 9th by itself does not generally imply travel. A 9th house stellium, Venus or Jupiter are more likely to do so, especially if you are looking for indications of foreign travel. Moon in the 9th may indicate living overseas for a period of time or visiting foreign relatives.
