Capricorn On Ninth House Cusp
Capricorn in 9th House – Capricorn on the cusp of the Ninth House
You likely seek to be an authority figure in matters of spirituality, religion, and/or philosophy. You seek out opportunities to teach or mentor others in some way, and you’ll often see other people as students. This may result in a significant age difference between you and your associates, and you may find that you apply a lot of effort in those relationships in order to “teach them something”.
Be careful that your inherent authoritative presence and your determination to teach doesn’t come across as bullying them to listen to and believe what you share with them. Otherwise, you may find out the hard way that you’ve damaged your reputation and credibility with those you’re trying so hard to impress.
In dealing with the ninth house, Capricorn on the cusp would seek higher knowledge from the viewpoint of security, stressing those disciplines which would be advantageous to the Capricorn. Caution must be emphasized here in that Capricorn might tend to use knowledge purely for its own ends. There are times on a lower octave when a Capricorn could be quite ruthless. It is necessary for a Capricorn on the cusp of the ninth house to be involved in abstract thinking, and by direct reaction to the third house, communicate this.
In religious pursuits, Capricorn on the cusp of the ninth house should not be dogmatic. This is the house of freedom; there should be no prejudice, no bigotry involved here. As Capricorn has the tendency to have an inferiority complex, or not to want to meet too many challenges, the Capricorn might tend to shy away from too much of an in-depth study of philosophy, psychology, religion, sociology, etc.
Capricorn here might work and study to preserve his own niche in that field, rather than the making of a major contribution. Also, it’s a matter of a broad perspective, and to be involved with all disciplines and the interrelationship of them to each other. Knowledge in itself does represent security, and Capricorn on the cusp of the ninth house might seek that knowledge purely from that viewpoint.
The karmic responsibility of Capricorn on the cusp of the ninth house is to get involved in higher mind activities, to pursue those studies which deal with abstractions and yet translate them into the average language, or the language of the day.
