So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 5th house Lord in 6th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Aries Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 5th house with Leo sign and sits in the 6th house in Virgo. This shows someone who uses his education and creativity in daily work routine to clear the obstacles and disputes of colleagues. At the same time, they become a kind of perfectionist at their work, which gives them authority. Father of native may have to deal with lots of obstacles but they will always win against enemies as Sun burns the house it sits, so here it burns all the opposition.
Moon - So it is Pisces Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 5th house with Cancer sign and sits in 6th house in Leo. This shows someone who is in nursing or health care field. They would love to take care of people, especially elderly ladies. It also shows that their education relates to healing activities. It also gives lots of concern towards under-privileged and pet animals. It also shows that mother of native had lots of obstacles to deal with in her life.
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 6th house in Taurus. This shows a person who is all about competing in sports and defeating the opposition. They are very active once they get into any sort of opposition. Besides sports, they can do well in Legal field. It also shows someone got to take loan for children or education.
Cancer Ascendant - Now if it is Cancer Ascendant, Mars rules 5th & 10th house and sits in 6th house in Sagittarius sign. This shows similar things but hardships may increase here while dealing with enemies and matters of kids & education because 5th house is now ruled by Scorpio. But as Mars is in friendly sign Sagittarius, it shows person will be able to cross all the hurdles.
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 6th house in Cancer. This shows a person who keeps a very emotional outlook towards those who are under privileged and needs help. He loves to help them with his education, communication and counseling. So, here we can see an advocate or activists who works for the down trodden section of society. This person uses his education and counselling to help people.
Taurus Ascendant - If it is Taurus Ascendant, then Mercury rules 5th & 2nd house and sits in 7th house in Libra. This person is a better lawyer as Virgo is sign of perfection. These people go into details of every law, every section to secure justice for their clients. If they go into jobs, they will become auditors, accountants or any finance related job where they need to deal with numbers and be perfect.
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 6th house in Gemini sign. This shows someone who wants to keep peaceful relation with all at workplace. They are known to be good to all at work. They love routine job setup. They also love working with NGOs, under privileged people and pets. They can work in finance related companies where they provide loans to people.
Gemini Ascendant - If it is Gemini Ascendant, Venus rules 5th & 12th house and sits in 6th house in Scorpio. This shows someone whose love matters continue to fall into disputes and conflicts. They have a really roller coaster ride in matters of love. No matter how much they want to be in love, they will automatically get into conflicts with their loved ones. This also shows someone who had to incur debts for completing education. Their creative side prospers when they perform dark side of life.
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 6th house in Capricorn Sign, where it is debilitated. If Jupiter is near to actual debilitation degree then it shows someone who either could not complete his education or his education is of no use for him. It also shows someone facing lots of obstacles in being with his children. It also shows who uses his creative skills and knowledge in competing with enemies. Other yogas and dashas will change the scenario totally.
Scorpio Ascendant - If it is Scorpio Ascendant, Jupiter rules 2nd & 5th house and sits in 6th house in Aries. This shows someone who is regarded as knowledgeable and wise person in their work place. They are regarded as Guru and people come for advise to them. With their knowledge, wisdom and spiritual guidance, they counsel people and try to remove the obstacles from people's life.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 5th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 5th house lord, Saturn in 6th house (for Virgo/Libra Ascendants respectively) shows that person has a mindset to serve. They are happy in a routine job setup as they like to serve others. As always, Saturn in 6th house is best placement of Saturn as Saturn suppresses all dushthana houses # 6, 8 and 12 through sitting or aspects. They are into service of under privileged and poor. Saturn here makes a person natural healer or Lawyer. Both fields are perfect.
Rahu - If Rahu is 5th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 6th 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 6th house will transform Rahu as Jupiter as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. So, it will become much like Jupiter in 6th house as discussed above but at the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Pisces in 6th house shows a person who has some foreign element involved with his work place. They may be working in foreign lands or they may be working in homeland but dealing with foreign people. They may get into weird diseases sometimes, which are rarely heard off. They are obsessive about spirituality but they have unusual approach towards it. They may even dismiss the concepts of all religions altogether and create a new religion of their own.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 5th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 6th 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 separates person from the concept of as to where he is serving. It means these people are blind as to where they are working, if they are getting enough return/salary/bonus for their work. They just want to mechanically work without any thought of getting into office politics and other things. Hence, it so happens that they may not get their deserving dues in jobs. At the same time, they may have real weird approach towards higher belief and religion where they won't accept anything unless they research about any religious concept.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
