Sun - Suppose it is a Aries Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 5th house with Leo sign and sits in the 4th house in the sign of Cancer. This shows that mother of individual is like his father figure and she is creatively involved in native's education and hobbies. Mother becomes a teacher for native. Here mother has to perform both roles. Native is emotionally attached with his creative skills, hobbies and education. Native also likes to remain with his kids at home. This can show a career in politics too as Sun represents Govt and 4th house is people of home land. Person's confidence develops and he finds his peace of mind when he is able to perform his skills in a private settings and still be known for it.
Moon - So it is Pisces Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 5th house with Cancer sign and sits in 3rd house in Gemini. This shows someone who is emotionally attached to his mother. Mother becomes a guide or teacher. She may even provide business ideas to the individual. This position shows someone who has lots of business ideas for running business from home. This person can have great writing skills but the best thing they can be working with is children like a teacher from their home. 5th house is children & education, 4th house is early primary education and Moon is nourishing and taking care like a mother. So, teaching career becomes natural for them.
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 4th house in Pisces sign. Although, it may give some power struggle or arguments with mother but at the same time as Mars is in a friendly sign, this person wants to safeguard mother and home too. This can show someone who is in business of real estate or who is in Security Forces to safeguard his homeland. These people are kind of strict dealing with their children, almost like a military person but still relations won't be sour.
Cancer Ascendant - Now if it is Cancer Ascendant, Mars rules 5th & 10th house and sits in 4th house in Libra sign. Here it shows some trouble in relations with mother and children, not only because Mars is in enemy sign Libra but it is also ruling 5th house through its karmic sign Scorpio. Here arguments with mother might turn into big fights, there can be a property dispute and children may retaliate here if they are treated in harsh disciplinary way. So, person needs to be very careful while dealing with mother and children here. Career wise, it shows almost same career paths as the earlier one.
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 4th house in Taurus. This shows a real nice communicative relation with mother and kids. Person becomes a kind of counselor for both. This also shows someone running a business from home or involved in any work related with counseling. This can also make someone a stock broker and gambler while working from home.
Taurus Ascendant - If it is Taurus Ascendant, then Mercury rules 5th & 2nd house and sits in 4th house in Leo. This gives a critical, analytical and perfectionist tendency while dealing with matters of home or children. They would want everything at home to be perfectly placed. They would be very analytical of their education. They would expect perfection from their kids. They are also authoritative in their speech. As they are very analytical with their education, it is a high possibility that they will become a good teacher.
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 4th house in Aries sign. This shows a person who wants a lover like their mother. Like, they look for qualities of their mother in choosing their spouse. For a guy it shows that mother decides who will be his wife. Their best idea of going on date is actually home. They love to decorate their home and may have good career in interior designing and beautifying things.
Gemini Ascendant - If it is Gemini Ascendant, Venus rules 5th & 12th house and sits in 4th house in Virgo, where it is debilitated. If Venus is nearby the degree of debilitation, it shows that person's love stories are coming to an end due to his analytical nature. This guy is so perfectionist in love matters that their love interests get tired in making compromises and decides to chuck it off one day. By time, they understand that such behavior is not expected by other side and they mend their ways when they are closer to 30s. Career wise, they become more perfectionist regarding beauty at home and they will do better in work of interior decoration etc.
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 4th house in Scorpio Sign. It shows someone having great knowledge and wisdom of Occult and Mystical stuff and works as a counselor or teacher in Occult field from home. Relations with mother and kids go through ups and downs but person is able to find the balance with his wisdom. It also shows a big home and good house property.
Scorpio Ascendant - If it is Scorpio Ascendant, Jupiter rules 2nd & 5th house and sits in 4th house in Aquarius. This gives a better relation with mother. Education will be much about world wisdom and sharing that wisdom for some higher common benefits for all. This person can be a teacher. Their mother is like Guru to them. Home and house property are similarly huge. Their can be huge gains from real estate.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 5th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 5th house lord, Saturn in 4th house (for Virgo/Libra Ascendants respectively) shows that person had a really restricted relation with mother. Like, their mother was like the strict principal of a school who was always trying to keep them under discipline. So, they never felt that mother's nourishment from her. It may be that they are separated from mother in early childhood for education. Now, as they are brought up in such disciplinary environment, they provide same to their kids. Education to them is like a responsibility or huge burden. They can do well in real estate business or farming work. They can also be a good Lawyer.
Rahu - If Rahu is 5th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 4th house in Capricorn then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Capricorn in 4th house will transform Rahu as Saturn as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. So, it will become much like Saturn in 4th house as discussed above but at the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Capricorn in 4th house shows a really weird and restrictive relation with mother. It may be they are raised by foster mother. But the relation with mother goes to real weird unusual levels. They might be away from mother in foreign lands. They will have very restrictive association with mother, for various reasons. They will educate themselves in field of science and technology.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 5th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 4th house in Libra 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 the relation with mother goes for a real toss. These people are either physically separated from their mother or they feel a mental separation always. They always feel that their mother is unable to understand their point of view or vice versa. They feel that their mother was unfair to them. They may not buy a property in their own name if they want to reside in it. At the same time, this position gives high intuition powers. This position is one of Moksha Margi position, means these people can get enlightenment and liberation if they make effort.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
