Virgo in House 9: ethics and philosophical ideas
Natives with Virgo in House 9 value ideas and beliefs that have practical use. Thus, they probably sympathize more with philosophical currents of the practical ethical type.
These natives of Virgo privilege constant improvement as a guide for their lives. But not a metaphysical improvement, preferring to be within the limits of social and professional life; also, providing services that allow them to find a security matrix for their lives.
Virgo in House 9: religion and other cultures
In religion, they are traditionalists, considering religion as a dimension of moral control of society and the learning of current moral norms. They may not have a true devotion or religious conviction but they maintain the tradition; they consider that society and its customs must be stable and religion helps to achieve that goal.
Religion, with its punishments and rewards, is also in line with their way of thinking. Being perfectionists and defenders of individual merit, these natives like to think that those who act uprightly and according to the rules should get a reward; those who disrespect them must be punished.
However, most traditional religions have exactly this pattern. It is no accident that the “final judgment” or judgment of souls is a factor that repeats itself in so many religions, since ancient times.
Traveling for help people
In the ninth house, these natives more than think about traveling for pleasure. They can see this as a service to help other beings or countries:
- Either in the area of health to help fight epidemics and other diseases;
- Or to help clean up polluted areas; point out the mistakes of management and administration that other countries make in various areas of human life;
- Or point out “reasons” in terms of ethics or way of life for the diseases that affect these countries.
In short, these natives are not the ones who most love other cultures and ways of living. They tend to express ethnocentric points of view. Also, they consider that the lifestyle of their society is superior to that of others. However, they can do an excellent job in investigating the pathogens. Thus, helping these countries as well.
What happens to the Capricorn Ascendant
For people with this ascendant, the value of ideas is measured by the efficiency they bring to action and to organize the world. In a way, that makes it habitable by beings who live in the earthly world and face daily problems. In this way, they prefer ethical philosophies that defend the good of all but do not ignore safeguarding individual rights (and duties).
They prefer ethics that extend to the level of social organization and political power because they believe that laws are the most efficient way to control social struggles, competition, and conflicts between human beings.
For these natives, life is a scene of struggle, competition and conflict of interests. For this reason, society has to organize itself through structures that safeguard the rights of all. Also, ensure that each one, with their own effort, can elevate stand above others on their own merit without being penalized or harmed.
As for philosophical ideas, these natives prefer practical ideas; linked to the real and concrete living of human beings in society. Thus, they establish ethical-political thinking of a practical nature as the most important philosophy; although they may also be interested in epistemological philosophy that studies the knowledge of Nature in an objective and practical way.
They don’t sympathize, however, with the classic utilitarian currents that despise individual interests in favor of the interests of the majority. Thus, we can say that they are “ethical egoists” in the sense that they do not reject community service; they only do so in the name of the right to receive benefits from it and to be able to rise to the point where their merit allows them to safeguard the protection of your property and your life.
