Planetary Joys


I've come across a puzzle while trying to figure out why the Sun is considered to be in its joy in the 9th House. In "On the Heavenly Spheres," Avelar and Ribeiro mention both a "joy by sign" and a "joy by house" for each of the traditional planets. By sign, the Sun is shown as being in its joy in Leo. Discussion here has been focusing on joy by house. In his thorough study of the joys (http://www.hellenisticastrology.com/...etary-joys.pdf), Chris Brennan only describes the house assignments. My question is: Does one clearly dominate the other in terms of strength (recognizing that both are minor dignities)?
