So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 5th house Lord in 7th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Aries Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 5th house with Leo sign and sits in the 7th house in Libra, where it is debilitated. If Sun is nearby the exact degree of debilitation, it shows troublesome relations with father, especially if Libra's lord Venus is also not well placed. These people turn their romance into marriage and then realize that it is not working as Sun burns the things related to the house it sits in. So, here it burns marital relations. They may not find their confidence in Govt or Administration Job Setup.

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 7th house in Gemini. This shows a person who is aggressive and active in relationship. He wants to dominate the relation and hence it doesn't go too well. As Mars is in enemy sign, it shows possible power struggle or dominance between couple. Education wise, they get into mechanical, technical or electronic business and turn it into business.
Cancer Ascendant - Now if it is Cancer Ascendant, Mars rules 5th & 10th house and sits in 7th house in Capricorn sign, where it is exalted. This person will also have arguments and fights in relations, but good thing about Mars being exalted is that this person knows when to argue and when to avoid it. At the same time, exalted Mars shows the good qualities of Mars means this person will be highly protective of his relationship and won't let it break.
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 7th house in Leo. This is a real businessman as Mercury represents business and sits into 7th house of Business. They will take their skills of 5th house and convert into a creative business. It also shows that person is very youthful and playful by nature and his relations may not last a long time. This person would turn his education into business. It may be a business of counselling, speculation or stock trading.
Taurus Ascendant - If it is Taurus Ascendant, then Mercury rules 5th & 2nd house and sits in 7th house in Scorpio. This shows a transformative relationship as 7th house is ruled by Scorpio. Mercury being there will make person analytical about relationhs, which may further damage it. This person can be in business of Occult Practice. They are very perfectionist about what they study. In both positions of Mercury, they desire a communicative partner.
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 7th house in Cancer sign. When Venus falls into such position, it surely shows a person who is into creative fields like Arts, Theater or Cinema and takes their art to masses. They will be known to play emotional roles. In love matters too, they are emotionally attached with their relationship. Their wealth is coming from masses.
Gemini Ascendant - If it is Gemini Ascendant, Venus rules 5th & 12th house and sits in 7th house in Sagittarius. This shows someone who looks for highly intellectual person as a partner. You may not impress them with good looks but you can impress them with your degrees or few verses of Geeta/Quran/Bible. They look for wisdom in relations. They want their partner to be wise than beautiful. They love to preach and may get fame as preacher.
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 7th house in Aquarius Sign. This shows someone who gets into education of scientific and technical research and wants to take it to the public for the common benefit of all. In jobs, they may be working into large organization in finance related field. They can also do a business related with finance. In relation, they want their partner to be a guide or Guru to them.
Scorpio Ascendant - If it is Scorpio Ascendant, Jupiter rules 2nd & 5th house and sits in 7th house in Taurus. Here wealth expands manifold once person gets into relationship or marriage, specially for a girl. Jupiter in Taurus signifies a very rich husband. They can study about finance and turn that into a financial business like lending of money etc. Again, spouse works like a counselor or a guide.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 5th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 5th house lord, Saturn in 7th house (for Virgo/Libra Ascendants respectively) shows that person's marriage gets delayed till 30s. For Libra Ascendant, Saturn is in Aries, which is debilitated. In such cases, marriage may even be further delayed. Otherwise, this person can be a smart businessman as Saturn loves to be in 7th house. Relationship is more a responsibility here. Fun part of marriage and romance gets very cold here. But it is a very practical marriage and long lasting too.
Rahu - If Rahu is 5th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 7th house in Aries then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Aries in 7th 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 7th house as discussed above but at the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Aries in 7th house shows a person who is obsessive for relationship. It becomes a karaka for unusual marriage like inter-caste and inter-religious marriage. It may even give a foreign spouse. It also shows a person who may get angry too quickly, specially in relationships. In sudden anger they can even get into violence with their partner.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 5th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 7th house in Capricorn 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 being in relation. They are not one of those who are looking out for their first or next partner. They are quite content and spiritual about themselves and their relations. It remains a possibility with Ketu in 7th house always that person is disinterested towards relations. The only way relation can survive in such cases is that couple becomes highly spiritual in matters of relations, means they are happy with whomsoever they marry with no expectations at all. Conjunction/Aspect of a benefic planet may change the situation altogether.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
