So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 5th house Lord in 11th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Aries Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 5th house with Leo sign and sits in the 11th house in Aquarius. This shows a person who gains from his creative pursuits or Father. Although, relation with Father remain sour as Sun is in its enemy sign. At the same time, these people become very egoistic about their creative skills which reduces their friends and network, as Sun burns the house it sits in. Sun in 11th house also shows that person has no elder sibling, he himself is eldest among siblings. This also shows someone or his father gaining from Large Organisation.
Moon - So it is Pisces Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 5th house with Cancer sign and sits in 11th house in Capricorn. This shows that person is very realistic and practical about his earnings. He is kind of hard or harsh with his children but all he wants to teach is practicality. As Moon is in Saturn's sign, it shows that relation with mother were sour and she was kind of hard task master. Mind is all about earning but with realistic approach. Their network circle includes elderly ladies.
Mars - Mars can be 5th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Sagittarius Ascendant - So if it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Mars rules 5th & 12th house and sits in 11th house in Libra. Here person's earnings come from speculative business and entrepreneurship. These people are very aggressive or initiative about their income. Lots of actions go into creating a balanced relation with elder siblings, network circles. Their network circle would include lots of male friends. Although they are very aggressive about their gains, at the same time, they can be spendthrift here due to malefic nature of Mars. They can be good in trading in stocks and gambling.
Cancer Ascendant - Now if it is Cancer Ascendant, Mars rules 5th & 10th house and sits in 11th house in Taurus sign. This time actions are all in creating wealth. They want to be super wealthy the quickest way. They are very secretive about their skills or children. They are protective too. It may be that none knows about the kind of speculative business person does for his income. In both positions, Mars in 11th house means struggle, arguments and fights with elder siblings, specially brothers. In both positions, Mars becomes a spendthrift.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 5th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Aquarius Ascendant - If it is Aquarius Ascendant, Mercury rules 5th & 8th houses and sits in 11th house in Sagittarius. This person will get his earning by teaching and counselling at large institutions. They are curious enough to go into higher education of any field, especially philosophy, religion and law, and then impart this knowledge as teacher or counselor to others. They are very calculative about their earnings and they like to accumulate it. In any other field too, their income comes from communication related work,like writing etc.
Taurus Ascendant - If it is Taurus Ascendant, then Mercury rules 5th & 2nd house and sits in 11th house in Pisces, where it is debilitated. As Pisces is sign of Spirituality, now education will be on spiritual nature. This time they will be in spiritual teaching or counselling field. They can even work as preachers or priests. At the same time, they will remain highly practical about their earning. They will keep on analyzing their income and how they can improve it.
Venus - Venus also can be 5th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, Venus rules 5th & 10th house and sits in 11th house in Scorpio sign. This shows a person who earns out of his creative pursuits like acting, singing or any other creative talent. At the same time, they are very secretive about their earnings. None knows how much they really earn? They are equally secretive about their love matters. Their earnings have up/down roller coaster ride and is never stable. Their network circle has big number of females and they also get benefited from them.
Gemini Ascendant - If it is Gemini Ascendant, Venus rules 5th & 12th house and sits in 11th house in Aries. This person is more aggressive in his approach towards money. It means if they have a creative skill by which they can earn, they will go all the way to advertise it from all means possible and increase their earnings. So, here the difference is in the approach. They will assert their individuality in their earnings, means they would like to keep their earned money in separate account. In both positions, person will earn from females and in both cases, person will be a spendthrift.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 5th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Leo Ascendant - If it is Leo Ascendant, Jupiter rules 5th & 8th house and sits in 11th house in Gemini Sign. This shows a great wealth coming from communication of knowledge, i.e. through Teaching/Counselling. These people are working in large institutions as a teacher/professor/counselor in the fields of higher learning, philosophy etc. They are the best teachers around. They can even teach how to manage income and finance. They like to educate their children with higher knowledge. This is one case where children can make money for parents. .
Scorpio Ascendant - If it is Scorpio Ascendant, Jupiter rules 2nd & 5th house and sits in 11th house in Virgo. Again only change is from religion to spirituality as the sign involved is Pisces. These people teach great spiritual and divine knowledge to their own children and others'. These people are very practical about wealth and teach the same practicality to their children. They can also be in field of health care as Jupiter is in the sign of Virgo, which represents healing.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 5th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 5th house lord, Saturn in 11th house (for Virgo/Libra Ascendants respectively) shows that this person had hard time earning the money in early life. Their earnings come really slow earlier but it gradually improves. Money doesn't come easy in life when Saturn is involved. They have to work their ass-off to gain in any field. They may not have big network circle or elder siblings, or even if they have, they will never gain benefit out of them. As always, things get better with Saturn from 30s. Career-wise, they can be in any position of high status in large organizations,Law or Govt.
Rahu - If Rahu is 5th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 11th 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 11th house will transform Rahu as Sun as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Leo in 11th house shows that person is power hungry and money hungry. They will do anything to get power and money. They are highly ambitious. Their earning will come from foreign source. They will gain authority through cheating or illusion. As Rahu is malefic, they will earn a lot and spend a lot. They can gain good authority in large organization.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 5th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 11th 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 it separates person from the concept of working in corporate :). They are least bothered about money and hence universe blesses them with lots of money as we always get that thing in abundance which we least desire. It suggests that person has no desire to gain wealth and hence he gets lots of wealth. They should make their career in some creative field as Rahu is exactly opposite in 5th house.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
