They can go into movies and other fields of arts and creativity. In matters of love, they may not have long lasting love, means they will have very short duration love stories as Venus is in Mercury ruled sign which likes to be everywhere. In both positions of Venus, these people will be very beautiful and are very conscious of the fact that how they look.
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 1st house in Leo Sign. It surely shows a highly educated, learned and wise person. Society will regard them as a person of wisdom. They can surely work in the field of education. Also, as Leo is sign of Creativity and Jupiter expands the quality of sign and house it sits in, here it will expand the creativity of person and they can also follow a path of creative arts in career.

Scorpio Ascendant - If it is Scorpio Ascendant, Jupiter rules 2nd & 5th house and sits in 1st house in Scorpio. This shows someone who is highly involved in occult and mysticism. They can be expert Astrologers. They are equally wise but this position gives lots of psychic abilities. In both these positions, Jupiter can cause obesity to a person, so they should be careful about their health and physique.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 5th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 5th house lord, Saturn in 1st house (for Virgo/Libra Ascendants respectively) shows that person will have to go through lots of hardships in finding his right life path. He will get success only when he puts his best effort. Normally, they get success only after mid 30s. They always have this sense of under achievement in their life. In this position, person has a very serious outlook towards life, education and kids. They always want to be in discipline and keep everyone in order. They are not one of those fun loving people. Creativity is realized in 30s. If Saturn is in Libra, where it is exalted, things can be 5% easier but nothing more than that. It is advisable that they should delay their marriage till 30s as Saturn aspects 7th house of marriage.
Rahu - If Rahu is 5th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 1st house in Libra then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Libra in 1st house will transform Rahu as Venus as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. So, it will become much like Venus in 1st house as discussed above but at the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Libra means they seek perfection in relationships. Hence, if they don't get such perfection, they would prefer to remain single all life then in any half-hearted relationship. It also shows person has a very illusive personality, means there is lots of illusion around them. Either they are instinctive liars or they keep many secrets within them and never show their true being to world. In matters of education, they may like to get education of unusual subjects like Foreign Languages or Foreign Laws.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 5th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 1st house in Cancer 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 himself, which means these people have lack of self-value or self-worth. They feel that other people are more blessed than them. As Ketu is in Cancer, it shows that these people didn't receive proper nourishment from mother, or mother was away or they always felt that their mother was unfair towards them.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
