What It Means
In the world of travel, this house is the long distance runner. Here is
where we travel far from our familiar surroundings in order to experience more
of the world.
While the third house deals with honing our skills, the ninth house reaches even
higher, to the level of mastery. When we reach the ninth house, we are ready to expand beyond
what we are already know. Here we are going to college or medical
school or law school. Or seeing the world to experience foreign cultures.
We are expanding way beyond basic reading, writing, and arithmatic.
As our skills grow, we begin to understand ourselves on a more philosophical
level. We connect to our maker through our religious beliefs. We
meditate and learn about Zen. We go beyond our immediate zone. And
then, when we have seen and learned enough, we can begin to teach others.
