So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 11th house Lord in 5th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Libra Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 11th house with Leo sign and sits in the 5th house in the sign of Aquarius. This shows a person whose confidence in life increases when he gets involved with works related with Social Welfare and Common Benefits, as 11th house and Aquarius both represent these things. It shows someone in creative field of new technology, media etc. But at the same time, as Sun is in enemy sign, their ego gets a beating when they are involved with other people as they like to be authoritative over others and others don't care about it. But they are highly creative with Technology and New Age Media. It may also give a Career in Corporate.
Moon - So it is Virgo Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 11th house with Cancer sign and sits in 5th house in Capricorn. This shows a person who earns through Teaching or Taking Care of Children as Moon is all about being Motherly and 5th house relates to Children. But Moon in Capricorn shows someone either very disciplined with their work or working with Govt. So, as a Teacher, they might not be too popular or they may be teaching in Govt School or College. Here, Mother can be very strict and disciplinarian.
Mars - Mars can be 11th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Gemini Ascendant - So if it is Gemini Ascendant, Mars rules 11th & 6th house and sits in 5th house in Libra sign. Mars here gives a great interest towards Sports. As 5th house relates to sports and Mars is an Athlete, this is a strong indication towards a career in Sports. Another trait, which this position can give, is Risk Taking ability. So, they can take risk on Money to do any speculative business. At the same time, they can be very dominating towards their children or loved ones, which might be taken care by them to maintain a long term relationship.
Capricorn Ascendant - Now if it is Capricorn Ascendant, Mars rules 4th & 11th house and sits in 5th house in Taurus sign. As Mars and Venus are again sharing energy, we can see similar things here. As Taurus is sign of Wealth and Assets, this is even better position for Stocks and Shares. All other things will be quite similar. Person needs to learn how not to be dominating towards Children, Lover or Teacher.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 11th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Leo Ascendant - If it is Leo Ascendant, Mercury rules 11th & 2nd houses and sits in 5th house in Sagittarius. This is person all about education. Mercury is counselor and teacher, 5th house is education and Sagittarius is sign of higher education. So, best thing for them is to earn from education and teaching. They are all about collecting knowledge and information related to higher education and then spreading it. Great position for someone who wants to be a life long student.
Scorpio Ascendant - If it is Scorpio Ascendant, then Mercury rules 8th and 11th house and sits in 5th house in Pisces, where it is debilitated. This shows an excellent writer in addition to be a counselor. As Mercury is in Spiritual Sign of Pisces, this is more a counselor on Spiritual Path. Pisces is also a sign of imagination, so it can make an extra-ordinary author of great imaginations. Mercury in Pisces always creates best authors, specially if Mercury is in Revati Nakshatra, the deepest spirituality and deepest imagination. Alternatively, both positions of Mercury can also give a career in Stocks/Shares.
Venus - Venus also can be 11th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, Venus rules 11th & 4th house and sits in 5th house in Scorpio sign. This shows someone purely in creative field, i.e. in Media, Arts and Movies etc. But as Venus is in the dark sign of Scorpio, one trait of their creative arts will be that they will always display the dark side of life with their creativity. It means, if they paint, they will paint some dark realities of life, if they are in movie, they will be in dark negative roles. Even at personal level, their love life is going to go through a turmoil. They will go through few breakups before finally settling down in life.
Sagittarius Ascendant - If it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Venus rules 6th & 11th house and sits in 5th house in Aries. This is much better placement as Venus is in a more calm sign of Aries. Professionally, it gives the same indications and person may be willing to follow creative pursuits as above. In personal life and love matters, person will be in much better position but only thing which Venus in Aries causes is person asserts his individuality to the partner. It means he may try to dominate other as Aries is the sign of Individuality. This may also show that person may insist to keep their wealth and finances separate, which may lead to disputes. So, they may need to be careful about these matters in relationship.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 11th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Aquarius Ascendant - If it is Aquarius Ascendant, Jupiter rules 11th & 2nd house and sits in 5th house in Gemini Sign. Another position where person can be a very good teacher or counselor as Jupiter is Teacher, 5th house is Education and Gemini is sign of Communications. So, teaching is the most common indication here. This person will be like a guide or teacher to his children and loved ones. Their guidance will be all about higher learning, philosophies and moral values.
Taurus Ascendant - If it is Taurus Ascendant, Jupiter rules 8th & 11th house and sits in 5th house in Virgo. This shows similar indications with a few more additions. This person may be a spiritual teacher or spiritual counselor as it is bringing the energy of spiritual sign of Pisces to 5th house. This also shows someone in finance field, so person can be in stocks/shares/speculative businesses, as Virgo is sign of details and analysis. Another good position to be in Academics/Teaching/Counselling.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 11th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 11th house lord, Saturn in 5th house (for Pisces/Aries 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, Law, Govt etc. Career in Creative field will only happen in their 30s.
Rahu - If Rahu is 11th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 5th house in Leo then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Leo in 5th house will transform Rahu as Sun 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 Leo in 5th house basically shows a very highly creative person, as Leo, 5th house and Rahu all represent creativity. They must pursue a creative career. It shows a great career in Cinema, Arts and other such creative pursuits. Rahu in 5th house is also an indication towards worldly and life long fame. So, all the reasons to pursue a creative side of life.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 11th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 5th house in Taurus 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 Taurus means person is not too concerned about wealth aspect of life, hence he is rich. This also gives a career in wealth or finance related research.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
