Taurus in the 9th House: 5 Ways it Affects You

Taurus in the 9th House

When Taurus is in your 9th House, you may value education and the process of learning. Your education might be a priority in your life and it might be something you have a very long-term plan for. Additionally, as a 9th House Taurus, you may lack the need for adventure or new things in your life.

To understand what it means when a sign lands in a house on your natal chart, you need to look at the meaning of the house, meaning of the sign, and how they interact:

  • The 9th House represents education, long-distance travel and adventure, the process of uncovering a new side of ourselves. It represents the higher things in life – beliefs, religion and philosophy.
  • Taurus is a fixed earth sign. It brings stability, rationality and stubbornness.
  • When Taurus is in the 9th House, it means that you may be very committed to your education. You might be drawn to education connected to beauty (like design or arts) or finance. On the negative side, you might be quite fearful of going out of your comfort zone and doing new things.

What Does it Mean with Taurus is in the 9th House?

9th House Meaning

The 9th house tells us about our education. What our approach to education is, what we might be interested in studying.

It shows our philosophies and beliefs in life. It shows the wisdom we gain through our experience in life, what our thoughts are on the bigger things in life. It can show interest in the things that might be deemed as too complex for others.

The 9th house also represents long-distance travels and what we view as foreign and different to us, what is unfamiliar to us. It can represent our desire for travelling, exploring, going on new adventures and visiting unfamiliar grounds.

It represents how willing we are to go out of our comfort zone and open up our horizons. It shows the area of life we reach after we have completed our growth and gained the required experience.

Taurus Traits

As an earth sign, Taurus helps us to be more realistic and rational in our approach. When Taurus influences aspects of our life, it’s likely that it will help us react with logic rather than emotions.

We use our logic to help us solve anything we encounter in a practical manner.

As s fixed sign, Taurus is a sign that can be prone to stagnation. If something works, they are unlikely to change it in any way. This may lead to staying in the same place for a while and feeling reluctant when any offers for improvement come up.

Taurus is also a very stubborn sign and taking advice from others may seem impossible. They prefer handling things in their own terms and with their own plans.

This can show that Taurus is likely to be very committed to their education. They are likely to prioritize education in their life and might be interested in subjects that take a while to understand and perfect. Taurus might be fearful of going out of their comfort zone, so they might be reluctant to travel a lot or do new things.

9th House Taurus: Key Takeaways

1. You may feel reluctant to leave your comfort zone

As Taurus governs your 9th house, you might be afraid of anything that is new or unfamiliar to you. You might be afraid of taking risks and doing something whose outcome might be unexpected or uncertain.

You might be very focused on your comfort zone – the things that provide you with security, the things that bring you the needed comfort and you might be very reluctant to leave them for something new.

Therefore, you are unlikely to try new things especially when you have no idea how they are going to make you feel and what they may lead to.

Academic success might be very important to you, so you are likely to put in a lot of time and effort in order to reach it.

You are very patient with yourself – you take your time to understand things before moving onto something else.

You are unlikely to change your field of studies once you begin it, so when making this decision, try to be thoughtful and think about your long-term goals and expectations.

3. You might not be very adventurous

Taurus is a sign that is very focused on their comfort – they prefer to stay in the same place if it’s comfortable to them regardless of the opportunities they may receive and how tempting they might be.

In terms of traveling or doing a new activity, you may refuse to go there or do it unless it’s sounds very appealing to you. For travelling, you might be interested in doing it only when the country sounds very appealing to you aesthetically or you have plans for doing something there.

Doing any new and unfamiliar activities might feel scary as you may not feel comfortable doing something you have no experience with. Try to be more open-minded as this may help you catch a lot of chances and learn a lot of new things about yourself.

4. Your education might be connected to art or finance

Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of beauty and money, so having Taurus in the 9th house of education, might be a sign that you are likely to study something related to arts, design or finance.

You might have artistic tendencies or be generally interested in the history of art and what kind of influence it has had on humanity. Therefore studying arts or art history, music or anything related to design (fashion design, interior design) is highly likely.

Since Venus also rules money, finance might also be an interesting option for education to you.

5. You are unlikely to change your beliefs once they are set

As a fixed Earth sign, Taurus can have a very stubborn character and they are unlikely to listen or seek advice from other people, especially when it comes to very important topics of life such as beliefs, religion or philosophy.

Any discussions related to these topics may lead to serious debates and you may have a hard time accepting other people’s views.

You might not be easily influenced by other people no matter how inspiring or tempting it may be. Once you set your mind on having certain beliefs or philosophies, you are unlikely to give them up.


With Taurus in the 9th House of your natal chart, you may be devoted to your education and your plans for self-development. You might be fearful of exploring new things – whether it’s travelling or going on adventures. You might be drawn to places that are beautiful.  

Remember that you need to look at the rest of your natal chart to make a better prediciton of your natural personality traits. Other elements on your natal chart may override some of these points (and I’ve tried to note that a few times in this article).
