Sun - Suppose it is a Taurus Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 4th house with Leo sign and sits in the 5th house in the sign of Virgo. This shows a highly creative person as Leo is the sign of Creativity, Sun is the source behind whole creation and 5th house is creativity itself. So, this person may tend to go in the field of dramatic arts and stage performances. At the same time, as Sun also burns the house it sits in, it shows that possibility of getting good education goes for a toss due to creative pursuits. It shows that person is highly perfectionist in his creative endeavors and at the same time, parents had to deal with may obstacles in their life.
Moon - So it is Aries Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 4th house with Cancer sign and sits in 5th house in Leo. Here mind of person is highly involved in creative pursuits. Mother provides all the support possible in native's creative pursuits. Besides that, Teaching looks a prominent career for them as 5th house is Education and Children both and Moon represents any career in which you have to take care and nourish people.
Mars - Mars can be 4th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Capricorn Ascendant - So if it is Capricorn Ascendant, Mars rules 4th & 11th house and sits in 5th house in Taurus sign. As Mars represents action, here it shows that person's action is going into the area of making wealth through speculative business. This person can do well in stock trading. He can also be someone who regularly deals in real estate, like not keeping any property for a long time and selling it off as soon as little profit is available. They can also keep properties as securities.
Leo Ascendant - Now if it is Leo Ascendant, Mars rules 4th & 9th house and sits in 5th house in Sagittarius sign. Here relationship with mother may be transformative as Scorpio rules the 4th house of mother. It shows someone who is determined to get higher education and philosophical learning. This person will do anything to receive education. As Mars also represents Athlete, this shows another combination of Sports and Education as Career, which means Sports Coach.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 4th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Pisces Ascendant - If it is Pisces Ascendant, Mercury rules 4th & 7th houses and sits in 5th house in Cancer. This shows someone who is very much interested in education. Due to curious nature of Mercury, they are willing to know everything possible. Artistically, they can be very good in writing. They will write about emotional/romantic stories and poems as Cancer is sign of emotions and 5th house is house of romance.
Gemini Ascendant - If it is Gemini Ascendant, then Mercury rules 4th & 1st house and sits in 5th house in Libra. This shows a smart stock broker as Mercury is ruling the sign of Virgo which is about Details & Analysis and it is in Venus ruled sign which represents Wealth and Finance. 5th house in itself is house of Stock Trading and Speculative Business. In the field of Education also, they will gain and teach knowledge of speculating business only.
Venus - Venus also can be 4th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Aquarius Ascendant - If it is Aquarius Ascendant, Venus rules 4th & 9th house and sits in 5th house in Gemini sign. This is another position of a highly creative person as planet of creativity is in the house of creativity. They can do well in Arts, Cinema, Theater etc. Additionally, they find their peace of mind when they are in love as Venus and 5th house both represent romance. But as Venus is in Mercury ruled sign which represents quick changes, they find it hard to have a stable love life.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, Venus rules 4th & 11th house and sits in 5th house in Scorpio. Now, this one shows a turbulent love life and may even be physical and emotional abuse by love partner if there is no benefic aspect is on Venus. In Arts and Cinema it shows someone who plays very dark and negative roles much like Anti-Hero type of.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 4th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Virgo Ascendant - If it is Virgo Ascendant, Jupiter rules 4th & 7th house and sits in 5th house in Capricorn Sign, where it is debilitated. If Jupiter is near the true degrees of debilitation then it shows that person will get education but he won't be able to reap benefits out of it. He will have love stories but may not be fruitful. He will have children but children may disobey him. As Jupiter is benefic by nature, person will still get the results even in debilitated position but he may not be able to reap any meaningful result out of these things.
Sagittarius Ascendant - If it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Jupiter rules 4th & 1st house and sits in 5th house in Aries. This is another position where Jupiter and Mars are exchanging energy, so again this person will be determined to get higher education. Here, Jupiter rules the sign of Pisces, so the higher education which he is inclined towards spirituality. We can easily see this person as a Teacher/Professor in any School/College. This is a man of higher wisdom.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 4th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 4th house lord, Saturn in 5th house (for Libra/Scorpio Ascendants respectively) shows that Education might be blocked for sometime or person has to go through lots of hard time in completing the education. It is always better to be realistic about love and relationship whenever Saturn is impacting 5th house and 7th house. Arrange Marriage is advisable in these situations with some realistic hopes. Creativity of person will prosper only after mid 30s. Till then it is time of hard work. Educational achievements will only come when person is ready to leave everything else behind. One thing that is good about Saturn is that it makes a person very hardworking towards the house where it sits. Another thing with Saturn is that Saturn represents Step Relations in life, so wherever Saturn sits, things and people related with that house give the native Step Treatment.
Rahu - If Rahu is 4th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 5th house in Pisces then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Pisces in 5th house will transform Rahu as Jupiter as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. Pisces is the sign of Spirituality, so this is the only sign where demon Rahu becomes a deity Rahu. Here person will become obsessed for Spirituality and Education. They would want to read anything or everything in the world of Spirituality. They are obsessed about gaining and giving education. At the same time, they will have weird touch to their Spirituality, like they will ask where God lives, where is Heaven and Hell, if these holy books are published by a normal publisher who sits for business then how can you say that it is word of God?
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 4th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 5th house in Sagittarius 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 it actually separates person 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. A benefic planet with Ketu or its aspect on Ketu/5th house or a running dasha of another planet can change this scenario completely. They will be fond of research on philosophical topics and religious texts, but they will also keep a weird approach towards religion.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
