Today, 10th house lord sitting in 5th house.
So first of all, let's see what 5th house and 10th house represent -
5th house represents Creativity, Romance, Happiness, Hobbies, Children, Innovation, Sports, Movies, Stock Trading, Gambling and Betting, Risk Taking Ability, Education, Ancient Texts etc. 5th house lord should always be checked for career matters as it can indicate where our happiness lies in career.
10th house represents things like Government, Father, Authority, Fame, Work Environment etc. Here, Authority should not be understood in literal sense, like someone got a Government job or became a Manager or CEO of a Firm. Here Authority means doing any work with complete perfection and your opinion matters when comes to making any decision related to that work, so even a good Hacker can be a person of authority as he is master of that particular work. 10th house is one of the houses normally checked for Career/Work/Duty in Life.
Now, what does it mean to have 10th house lord sitting in 5th house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 10th house of your horoscope is sitting in the 5th house of horoscope.
Now, what is the impact of having 10th house lord sitting in 5th house?
In its most generic interpretation it means that your work environment must involve creative pursuits. So, these are those people who follow their hobbies and interests. That's why, this position can take you in any field of creativity as hobbies and interests can be plenty. It depends on the planet, sign and nakshatra involved to tell us which field of creativity person may go in. It can be anywhere from Media, Cinema, Sports, Stocks etc. It also suggests that your work environment may be related to kids and education. Basically, 5th house is happiness and 10th house is Work Environment, so it suggests that your work environment is bringing you happiness. Also, 10th lord is going 8 places from 10th house into 5th house. If 10th lord is not in good dignity here then if you are under dasha of 10th lord then whenever 10th lord also transits through 5th house during annual transit, it brings sudden events in work environment. If 10th lord is well placed in 5th house, then person may get better work opportunity when any such dasha + transit happens.
Now, results may be different due to aspect, conjunctions of other planets or the planet being Retrograde or Combust. Moreover, now we also need to check the strength of 5th house lord as 10th house lord is going in 5th house. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 10th house Lord in 5th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Scorpio Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 10th house with Leo sign and sits in the 5th house in the sign of Pisces. This shows that person's authority and confidence in life will develop when he involves himself in a career related with Creativity, Imagination and Spirituality. As Pisces is the sign of Spirituality, their work should involve Spiritual + Creative environment. They may do very good as Counselors/Teachers. They may be working with Govt as Teachers.
Moon - So it is Libra Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 10th house with Cancer sign and sits in 5th house in Aquarius. This shows a work environment totally filled with Scientific and Technological work and research. These people find special emotional attachment with Children and as Moon represents Mother, they can be excellent Motherly Teachers. They can be very good at teaching Science and Technological subjects.
Mars - Mars can be 10th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Cancer Ascendant - So if it is Cancer Ascendant, Mars rules 10th & 5th house and sits in 5th house in Scorpio sign. This may show a work environment filled with Occult and Mysticism as Scorpio sign is there. Simultaneously, Mars in Scorpio means a person with unbelievable will power to achieve his goals and as Mars is natural Athlete, this makes a great case for Sports Person, who will go to unimaginable limits to win over his competitors. Alternatively, it can also make a good Surgeon.
Aquarius Ascendant - Now if it is Aquarius Ascendant, Mars rules 3rd & 10th house and sits in 5th house in Gemini sign. Here, Mars is coming into sign of Communications and in the house of Education. So, it makes a Teacher who is very dynamic in explaining himself. At the same time, Mars in Gemini gives a harsh/direct speech. So, they may be very direct with their Teachings and may even try to dominate their students or children. This also gives a Career in Stock Market as Mars provides risk taking ability and Gemini's lord Mercury is karaka of Shares.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 10th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Virgo Ascendant - If it is Virgo Ascendant, Mercury rules 10th & 1st houses and sits in 5th house in Capricorn. This makes a better case of Stockist as Mercury itself is going in the 5th house. Also, Mercury is in friendly sign. Mercury in Capricorn limits the communications, he becomes shrewd about when to talk and when not to talk. Likewise, Mercury in 5th house in Capricorn makes one shrewd about Betting. Alternatively, they can be good Teachers and Counselors, and can be working with Govt as Teachers/Spokespersons.
Sagittarius Ascendant - If it is Sagittarius Ascendant, then Mercury rules 7th and 10th house and sits in 5th house in Aries. Another position which can make a Stockist, Teacher or Counselor. As Mercury brings the energy of Virgo here, which is about details and analysis, a Share Market Guy is best suited for this position. Only difference is that Mercury is in Mars ruled sign. So, person becomes an impulsive Gambler. Again, communications may be harsh/direct. These two things, they should be careful about.
Venus - Venus also can be 10th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Leo Ascendant - If it is Leo Ascendant, Venus rules 10th & 3rd house and sits in 5th house in Sagittarius sign. This position can either give a very creative career as Venus is in 5th house, planet of creativity is in the house of creativity. But this position makes a stronger case of Professor/ Teacher as Venus is in sign of Sagittarius, which is sign of Higher Education, Philosophy and Law. So, these people have natural love towards higher education. Even in matters of romance, if you want to impress them then impress with your knowledge rather than your looks. Highly learned people.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, Venus rules 5th & 10th house and sits in 5th house in Taurus.This is where it isall about Creativity as Venus is in own sign here. These people will go into the career of Media, Movies, Arts or anything creative. As Taurus is also sign of Wealth, it shows that your wealth is coming from creative pursuits. In matters of love, they are devoted lovers.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 10th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Pisces Ascendant - If it is Pisces Ascendant, Jupiter rules 10th & 1st house and sits in 5th house in Cancer Sign, where it is exalted. Best position among all. Best and most highly learned teachers and counselors. Most spiritual counselors and astrologers as 5th house has been the house of Counselors from ancient times. Amazing relation with students and love partners. Again, when things are good, there is nothing much to say.
Gemini Ascendant - If it is Gemini Ascendant, Jupiter rules 7th & 10th house and sits in 5th house in Libra. These people can become relationship counselors as Libra is sign of Relationships. They can be wealth advisers too as Jupiter is in Venus ruled sign and Jupiter/Venus both represent wealth. Overall, the career in education and counselling is always on.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 10th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 10th house lord, Saturn in 5th house (for Aries/Taurus Ascendants respectively) shows a person who has a really serious outlook about studies and education. They treat education as their duty/responsibility and in such cases, fun part of life takes a back seat. It shows some real stressful relations which become burden in early 20s and break with time. Saturn here gives long duration relations and then it breaks, so the pain of separation is long lasting. They realize their creative side only in 30s. Saturn's 3rd aspect delays the marriage and hence child birth also gets delayed. Overall, it is a position of person who is seriously involved in studies and willing to leave fun part of life at least in 20s. Education may be delayed or blocked for some time. They should make their Career in Education or Creative field, but it will only happen in their 30s.
Rahu - If Rahu is 10th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 5th house in Virgo then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Virgo in 5th house will transform Rahu as Mercury as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. At the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Virgo in 5th house basically shows an unusual aspect to children, means either they are adopted or born through new technology. He is obsessed for being in love relation but it just doesn't work out for a long time as they have a perfectionist approach with Virgo sign there. It shows some very unusual and weird relations. Online love affair can be seen from here. Here Education will be related to Analysis and Details, so this can be a very shrewd and cunning Stock Broker. This person will be doing online Business or Education or may be placing bets in International Markets.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 10th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 5th house in Gemini then 1st of all we need to make sure of Mars' position as it is the main ruler. As Ketu isolates/separates a person from the things related to the house Ketu is sitting, here Creativity suffers. These people are isolate from being creative and attaining higher education, means they themselves won't be motivated to study any further after basic education. Likewise, they are not too much into sports, not even as a kid. Love relations would always end in painful breakups or cheating, so much so that later they won't even be inclined to any love relation. Education related with Occult, Mysticism and Spirituality will interest them and they will research about it. Meditation is going to heal them. Ketu in Gemini means person is not too communicative. They don't like to talk much.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
