The abstract world and symbols becomes the language of the 9th house. Sagittarius is the ruler of the 9th house so the vision becomes lived experience here. Philosophies, faith, beliefs, and collective ideas become cultural melting points where we come together and find meaning in our existence. The higher mind governs the 9th house and offers a passport to wide-ranging mental experiences that satiate the body and soul. Consciousness and divine energy expressed through the individual defines itself through intuition, natural law, and wisdom. Deep conversation is stimulated through the 9th house, as well as our personal, insightful genius. An awakened higher mind uses intellect to grasp ideas, while fiery intuition fills the empty spaces. The mystical experience longs to become concrete in the 9th house. It’s a temple, one which rests within but may be found through external pursuits. All forms of scripture, gospel, cosmic law, and Akashic Record are found in the here. The sort of philosophy, religious order, spiritual pathway or undertaking the individual recognises must resonate with eternal Truth ~ that which is indestructible ~ and so we can facilitate intimacy with our immortality. We desire a direct experience with God in the 9th house, we crave to be kissed by the cosmos, taken into space, and to bathe in the ocean like it’s holy water.

“The Heathers weren’t great friends until in 9th grade Heather C. invited the two of them to go shopping with her where she convinced Heather M. to buy a yellow blazer that looked "so very” and Heather D. to buy a green blazer. Duke didn’t actually like it that much but Chandler said, “Shut up Heather, green is so your color!” And Heather D. wasn’t confident enough to argue with her.“ -Anonymous
Standing Three-Headed Shiva - South Asia, India, Kashmir, Karakota period, c. 7th-9th Centuries
Made from dark gray Chlorite, Numerous attributes identify this crowned figure as the great Hindu god Shiva: the vertical third eye, linked snakes across the chest, tiger skin draped across the thigh, and an erect phallus, symbol of both potency and control. The three heads express different aspects of this manifold deity. A smiling female, a benign male, and a violent male perhaps correspond to Shiva’s powers as creator, protector, and destroyer. The now missing arms would have held additional emblems to communicate the god’s cosmic powers.
