So first of all, let's see what 1st house/Ascendant and 6th house represent -

6th house is 1st of Dushthana Houses (houses # 6, 8 and 12) and 2nd of Upachaya Houses (houses # 3, 6, 10 & 11). 6th house represents things like diseases, debts, obstacles, enemies, disputes, competitions, litigations, under privileged people, pets, daily routine life, colleagues at work place etc.
Now, what does it mean to have 6th house lord sitting in 1st house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 6th house of your horoscope is sitting in the 1st house/Ascendant of horoscope.
Now, what is the impact of having 6th house lord sitting in 1st house?
Its generic interpretation is that Disputes, Conflicts, Healing, Service and Competition will be an integral part of person's life path. It means that person's life will always take him towards these things. It sounds scary but this is what an Attorney or a Doctor does. His life is full of disputes, conflicts and healing activities. Whenever 6th house lord gets connected with 10th house or 1st house, these two professions are most common. It also shows person's life path is of Service to others.
Now, results may be different due to aspect, conjunctions of other planets or the planet being Retrograde or Combust. Moreover, now we also need to check the strength of 1st house lord as 6th house lord is going in 1st house. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 6th house Lord in 1st house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Pisces Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 6th house with Leo sign and sits in the 1st house in the sign of Pisces. It shows that native has a sense of pride and ego when he gets involved in service of others, especially poor and down trodden people. He may be working with a Govt Organization regarding serving poor people. His authority comes by serving others. As Pisces is sign of spirituality, by serving people, native feels more spiritual. Or it can also be said that he uses his spiritual values and imagination to serve people.
Moon - So it is Aquarius Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 6th house with Cancer sign and sits in 1st house in Aquarius. As Moon naturally signifies taking care and nourishing people, this clearly shows a person who wants to take care and serve poor and ill people. As Moon is in the scientific sign of Aquarius, these people apply scientific and innovative ways in serving people. These people feel less nourished from mother as Moon is in sign of Saturn and Rahu, but still they themselves are emotionally involved in serving others.
Mars - Mars can be 6th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Scorpio Ascendant - So if it is Scorpio Ascendant, Mars rules 6th & 1st house and sits in 1st house in Scorpio sign. As Mars is in its own sign, it is very strong. These people will continue to have disputes and conflicts coming into their lives which will bring transformative situations in life. But as Mars is in own sign, every dispute or subsequent transformation will be benefic in the end. Scorpio's basic nature is to deal with conflicts. They are always ready to deal with conflicts, its their innate nature. So, they don't mind dealing with any obstacle.
Gemini Ascendant - Now if it is Gemini Ascendant, Mars rules 6th & 11th house and sits in 1st house in Gemini sign. Although Mars is not in a friendly sign, but it is still in sign of communication. It shows that communication regarding disputes and obstacles become a life path. So, these people can be activists for various rights, attorneys or writer/author on social issues. One thing is sure that communications are going to be very aggressive. They will be action oriented but as Mars is in enemy sign, they will not get desired results from their efforts or at least they would feel so. Also, they should avoid taking loans as that may not be benefic.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 6th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, Mercury rules 6th & 9th houses and sits in 1st house in Capricorn. This again shows someone who is communicating about 6th house matters but this is a better place as Mercury is in friendly sign. So, this person has better chances of being successful with their work. These people normally communicate with authorities, so they may be activists or attorneys who deal with Govt. So, it is almost same work but with more success.
Aries Ascendant - If it is Aries Ascendant, then Mercury rules 6th & 3rd house and sits in 1st house in Aries. Again, energy exchange between Mars and Mercury giving a very direct speech. It is almost same position as Mars in Gemini. Similar actions and similar results. These people can also be accountants and analysts and serving in companies.
Venus - Venus also can be 6th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Sagittarius Ascendant - If it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Venus rules 6th & 11th house and sits in 1st house in Sagittarius sign. This person loves to serve people and with this action of serving he tries to get some higher learning and education from it or it can be other way around and they can use their higher education in serving others. Venus here gives a pleasant personality and inclination towards higher learning. They can not be impressed by good looks and money but by degrees. They also gain and make money by serving people.
Taurus Ascendant - If it is Taurus Ascendant, Venus rules 6th & 1st house and sits in 1st house in Taurus. This is even better position to make money from serving others as Venus is in its own sign. Here, disputes, conflicts and debts all will prove benficial and give good returns. This position will give better benefits then earlier one. These people may have a service oriented mindset.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 6th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, Jupiter rules 6th & 9th house and sits in 1st house in Cancer Sign.This can be termed as best position as it is exalted here. Here every conflict, dispute and illness will result in benefit of person. Only concern here would be excess weight, else all fine. Person will win over all the dispute or obstacles with his wisdom.
Libra Ascendant - If it is Libra Ascendant, Jupiter rules 3rd & 6th house and sits in 1st house in Libra. This again shows someone who has grand wisdom about dealing with conflicts and helps/teaches people to deal with conflicts. So, again an attorney, judge or law teacher can be seen from here. This is good position for Jupiter but not as great as the earlier one.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 6th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 6th house lord, Saturn in 1st house (for Leo/Virgo Ascendants respectively) shows that person will feel responsible and burdened towards disputes and conflicts in early part of life. He will have to go through lots of hardships in finding his right life path. He will get success only when he puts his best effort. Normally, they get success only after mid 30s. They always have this sense of under achievement in their life. In this position, person has a very serious outlook towards life. They always want to be in discipline and keep everyone in order. They are not one of those fun loving people. Life becomes easier after 30. It is advisable that they should delay their marriage till 30s as Saturn aspects 7th house of marriage. Saturn will make them do hard work regarding obstacles in life. In early part of life, they need to be very health conscious.
Rahu - If Rahu is 6th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 1st house in Virgo then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Virgo in 1st house will transform Rahu as Mercury as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. So, it will become much like Mercuy in 1st house as discussed above but at the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Virgo in Ascendant basically indicates someone in alternate healing work. As 6th house lord is sitting in Virgo, it clearly indicates about healing activities and Rahu there adds the flavor of unorthodox and unusual things, like Alternate Healing. .
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 6th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 1st house in Gemini 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 himself, which means these people have lack of self-value or self-worth. They feel that other people are more blessed than them. As Ketu is in Gemini, it shows that these people are not too much into communicating with others and partying. They like to be alone in their own world. Ketu in 1st house anyways gives psychic powers and love isolation.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
