So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 5th house Lord in 9th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Aries Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 5th house with Leo sign and sits in the 9th house in Sagittarius. This person is all about higher education. They will try their best to get Ph.D. or D.Lit. They would get education in field of Law, Philosophy or Religion. They will travel to far distant places to get education. This also shows that native's father may be in a job, which requires a lot of travelling. This can easily make someone a Professor or Principal at any institute.
Moon - So it is Pisces Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 5th house with Cancer sign and sits in 9th house in Scorpio, where it is debilitated. If Moon is nearby real degrees of debilitation then it shows that person gets into deep studies of Religion, Occult and Mysticism but his mind may not feel that he has got right Gurus. His long distance travels may not bring desired results. Relation with Mother would be sore for various reasons, one such being that Mother is always away travelling. Other yogas and dashas will change the scenario totally.
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 9th house in Leo. As Mars is in friendly sign, this person will be determined to get higher education and will take whatever effort to achieve higher learning. As Mars is in friendly sign, they will be successful in their efforts. But at the same time, due to malefic nature of Mars, they will continue to have arguments and disputes with their Gurus. Their Teachers will tell them to do something, they will do something else.
Cancer Ascendant - Now if it is Cancer Ascendant, Mars rules 5th & 10th house and sits in 9th house in Pisces sign. Here again, Mars is in a friendly sign and much more Spiritual sign. These people go towards spiritual education. They will invest time in learning Yoga or Martial Arts. But again, there will be some disagreements with Teachers and they would love to become their own teachers.
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 9th house in Libra. This shows a person who is very curious about higher learning, religion, philosophy etc. If possible, they will read everything written on these subjects. As 9th house is also house of publishing, teaching and Mercury is communication, after reading everything they want to communicate and teach others. They can become good teachers or counselors. They love travelling too.
Taurus Ascendant - If it is Taurus Ascendant, then Mercury rules 5th & 2nd house and sits in 9th house in Capricorn. As Mercury remains in friendly sign, above results can again be seen here. Additionally, they will reach a position of authority and status with their study and counselling. They can be working as a teacher in Govt Schools or Colleges. They can be preacher or counselor in a Govt run institution. With both positions of Mercury, this person is more interested in making business of his higher learning and make money out of it.
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 9th house in Virgo sign, where it is debilitated. If Venus is nearby the exact degree of debilitation, then it shows that person's love story will come to an abrupt end as his partner moves to a far distant place. May be they lose contact or they find someone else. It also shows that when a person goes on a long distant travels, specially for higher education, results won't be as desired. It also shows that person won't get right Gurus for his higher education and the Gurus he gets, may not impart right education to them. Other yogas and dashas will change the scenario totally.
Gemini Ascendant - If it is Gemini Ascendant, Venus rules 5th & 12th house and sits in 9th house in Aquarius. This is much better position for Venus. It shows a person who travels to far distant places to work with a large organization and earns his wealth out of it. It also shows that a person has great passion of research in his higher learning or studies. It also shows for a man that his wife would be from a different ethnicity or from a far distant place. Person loves travelling.
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 9th house in Aries Sign. This shows someone who travels far distant places to get higher education in field of philosophy, religion and ancient texts. It shows someone who himself is becoming Guru. But as it is in sign of Aries, which is of individuality. So, these people will be those hardliners who will preach that only their religion or belief system is true, everything else is bullshit.
Scorpio Ascendant - If it is Scorpio Ascendant, Jupiter rules 2nd & 5th house and sits in 9th house in Cancer, where it is exalted. Out of all, this is best one. This person will be ideal Guru. They will teach their students with all the care and love. They are highly highly spiritual person. They become greatest of preachers, teachers and counselors. They themselves become Guru. Higher knowledge comes easy and natural to them. They will gain wealth out of their higher learning.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 5th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 5th house lord, Saturn in 9th house (for Virgo/Libra Ascendants respectively) shows that person feels that it is his duty to get higher education. They feel burdened with the expectations of higher education. They will focus hard over it but they would not find right teachers till they are 30. Their religious beliefs will develop with time. In early part of life, they will criticize their Gurus. They will get education in field of Technology or Law. A good position from the age of 30.
Rahu - If Rahu is 5th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 9th house in Gemini then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Gemini in 9th house will transform Rahu as Mercury as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Gemini in 9th house shows that person is highly obsessive about collecting information about religion, philosophy and all the world's ancient texts. They will be reading almost anything written about religion and then they will communicate it to world. So, they can be seen as Teachers, Preachers and Professors etc. They can travel to foreign lands to either get education or impart education or both. Their approach towards religion will have some weirdness attached with it.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 5th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 9th house in Pisces then 1st of all we need to make sure of Mars' position as it is the main ruler. Ketu feels peaceful in Pisces. So, it is one of best positions for Ketu. They will research over all religions and spiritual teachings. At the same time, as Ketu isolates/separates a person from the things related to the house Ketu is sitting, here it separates person from his Gurus and Higher Learning, means this person will always find Gurus who are in disagreement with native. There is never a connect between the two. Native thinks that real knowledge of religion and philosophy is something else then what is taught to him by his Gurus. He always feels that his teachers are below par.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
