I remember reading an article that dealt with astrology and mass communication. It had some case studies that seemed to indicate 9th house to mass communication. Writing a book that is read by many, I believe is also mass communication.mysbcrsji would you please explain more about the 3h-9H connection ?. By publishing did you mean the physical printing of the book/work or does it mean the native might be publisher or like Rishiji pointed to being lucky in writing ?
Or does it help timing the event of book being published?
on side note : is it possible to predict an authors work being published say in book form?
I have myself seen a couple of charts of journalists, editors etc. that seem to support this linkage. Of-course, if only 9th and 10th are connected they may not be authors but yet mass communicators. If 5th house connection is absent they may be copy writers (copy in more ways than one )
As for prediction, I will start by saying that I am no good at it . But I do believe that if a rule/principle does not assist in predicting, it is of very little use. Hence prima facie, in the ruling periods that have a say on 3/9th house matters, the piblication or rather the mass reading of what is published should happen.
