So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 5th house Lord in 2nd house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Aries Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 5th house with Leo sign and sits in the 2nd house in the sign of Taurus. This certainly shows someone who is in creative field because 5th house is creativity, Leo is Creativity, Sun is Creativity & Career and it is in the sign of Taurus whose lord is Venus which again represents Creativity. So, a creative career is surely on. But as Sun is in enemy sign and burns the significance of the house it sits in, it shows some ego battles within family specially with father. They may not be satisfied with their wealth. Their pride and self confidence comes when they are able to earn wealth out of their creative endeavors.
Moon - So it is Pisces Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 5th house with Cancer sign and sits in 2nd house in Aries. These people have emotional connection with their children and family. At the same time, no matter how emotional they are about their children, they are equally strict with them as Moon is in aggressive sign of Aries. It shows that mother is a dominant force in family. These people can become good singers as 2nd house represent throat and Moon is a soft and gentle planet, so it gives a soft voice.
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 2nd house in Capricorn sign, where it is exalted. As 5th house is also house of sports, these people will be good sports persons. At the same time, they will be very honest about playing sport. They will never cheat to win as Mars is exalted. They will be highly disciplined people. Family environment will be like military and they instill same discipline in their kids. They will work like a protector of family and guard of their wealth. They will be equally inclined towards higher education.
Cancer Ascendant - Now if it is Cancer Ascendant, Mars rules 5th & 10th house and sits in 2nd house in Leo sign. It shows almost the same things as Mars is in sign of its best friend and King Sun. Mars follows order only from Sun, so it is equally good position. All the things told above apply as is. In both position person can reach a position of authority in their field of career.
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 2nd house in Pisces, where it is debilitated. This shows someone who is either in education field like a teacher or in the field of stock trading or may be both. They have a highly spiritual way of explaining things. They can become good bloggers and authors of fiction books. They have high level of imagination. At the same time, as Mercury is debilitated, it shows person finds disconnect with family. He doesn't find good communicative environment in family and feels people are not understanding their point of view, if Mercury is close to real debilitation degree. Other yogas and dashas will change the scenario totally.
Taurus Ascendant - If it is Taurus Ascendant, then Mercury rules 5th & 2nd house and sits in 2nd house in Gemini. As Mercury is in its own sign, it is certainly a better position then earlier one. They can be a smart stock broker, in any business related with wealth and finance. They can be very good in accounting, audit etc. At the same time, they are very skillful and may earn from their hobbies like writing, counseling, speaking etc. The only difference in this position from earlier is that these people have a very precise way of talking rather than being highly imaginative of earlier position. They are very calculative about their wealth. Relations with kids and within family are very communicative.
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 2nd house in Aquarius sign. This shows a person who is highly beautiful as 2nd house also represents face. This can give a creative career in modeling, movies, arts etc. This also shows a person who is gaining wealth from large organizations and large group of people, so career in movies and media is still on. They use their creative arts for the service of the people.
Gemini Ascendant - If it is Gemini Ascendant, Venus rules 5th & 12th house and sits in 2nd house in Cancer. This is even more profound for a creative career as Venus is in soft sign of Cancer. This can also make a person very good singer as Venus is in Moon ruled sign, so 2 soft planets are exchanging energy. If these people go into movies, they will be known for doing romantic and emotional roles. They will be emotionally attached to their kids and loved ones.
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 2nd house in Virgo Sign. It shows someone either in education field or he is a financial planner or adviser. This person can work as financial adviser to others while giving them analytical knowledge about where to invest and where not to. Jupiter in 2nd house will certainly give this person an eloquent speech. They can also do well in Academics. Jupiter in 2nd house of wealth can expand the wealth of person through 5th and 8th house related things.
Scorpio Ascendant - If it is Scorpio Ascendant, Jupiter rules 2nd & 5th house and sits in 2nd house in Sagittarius. This is even better position than earlier one as Jupiter is in its own sign. Here it is certainty that the person will go in field of education. They can be in normal academics or actually the real Spiritual Guru type of people as 5th house is ruled by Spiritual Pisces sign. They will be highly highly learned and spiritual people and will have absolute vak-siddhi, means whatever these people speak will come out to be true.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 5th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 5th house lord, Saturn in 2nd house (for Virgo/Libra Ascendants respectively) shows that person was detached from his family lineage during his childhood or didn't get proper nourishment in family. They have seen the hard face of poverty in their 1st half of life. If Saturn is in Libra, where it is exalted, then things may be 5% better but not more than that. Children and Education come up as a huge burden/responsibility for them till late 20s. Basically, these are those self made people, who achieve everything on their own. So, first half of life is totally dedicated to cleaning up the mess created by earlier generation, so that they can live a better life in 2nd half of life.
Rahu - If Rahu is 5th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 2nd house in Scorpio then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Scorpio in 2nd house will transform Rahu as Mars as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. So, it will become much like Mars in 2nd house as discussed above but at the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Scorpio in 2nd house means these people go through lots of transformative events in their early childhood in family. Their family environment was kind of unusual one in their childhood, in comparison with environment of the family of their friends. It also shows an unusual source of wealth. These people go through so many sudden events that they become kind of used to it. They become highly interested in occult side of life.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 5th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 2nd house in Leo 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 the concept of hoarding and gaining wealth. And that's why, people with Ketu in 2nd or 11th house end up as the richest people in the world because whatever you don't care for in life comes very easy to you. They don't care for wealth, so wealth comes easy. Ketu in 2nd house also becomes a karaka of 2nd marriage, so best way to avoid any such situation is to marry your spouse twice. It may also give a malefic speech to person. They feel isolation from family too, like both sides are unable to understand each other's point of view. It may also send person away from family in early childhood.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
