Gemini Ascendant - Now if it is Gemini Ascendant, Mars rules 6th & 11th house and sits in 5th house in Libra sign. As Mars is not in a friendly sign and Mars remains a natural malefic planet, Libra is sign of relations and 5th house is house of Romance, it shows that person may have a hard time in striking balance with his romantic partner. It shows disputes, aggression and anger coming in relationship. It also shows person incurring debts due to education or children. This person will be a very dominating and controlling Lover & Parent.
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 5th house in Taurus. Whenever there is an energy exchange between Mercury & Venus, it opens the doors of business in finance field. This position shows a consultant or counselor in the field of finance or loans. He can be in any speculative business like stocks and shares. They can be good counselors too and it is a great position for education as Mercury represents collection of information. A very creative person like the next position of Mercury.
Aries Ascendant - If it is Aries Ascendant, then Mercury rules 6th & 3rd house and sits in 5th house in Leo. This is another good position. Person can be stock analyst, accountant or in like field. Other results can be similar to earlier one. Additionally, this person will be highly creative as planet of creative skills is in the sign and house of Creativity. So, this person can have amazing talents of Acting, Mimicking or like things. He will be very detailed oriented in his approach to his creativity.
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 5th house in Aries sign. These people like to serve pets & under privileged people and that brings them happiness. They are very health conscious towards their love interests. In matters of romance, they are very initiative and aggressive. They want to be the dominating partner in love matters. For a guy, his wife will be very active and initiative.
Taurus Ascendant - If it is Taurus Ascendant, Venus rules 6th & 1st house and sits in 5th house in Virgo, where it is debilitated. If Venus is nearby to the right degrees of debilitation, it shows that person has habit of knit-picking the faults of their romantic partner, which obviously none would like, and that leads to disputes and break-ups in love relations. Education wise, they will be interested in medicine and health care education. Creativity of person may go for a toss, as planet of creativity is debilitated in house of creativity. Conjunctions, Aspects and Dashas of other planets can change these results completely.
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 5th house in Scorpio Sign.This shows a person who is inclined to take education of occult and mysticism or of Law. He may also be inclined towards education of biology. Some heavy karmic lessons or transformations through love life or through children. At the same time, person will be learned, religious and highly educated. Person needs to be careful against obesity and problems related to intestines.
Libra Ascendant - If it is Libra Ascendant, Jupiter rules 3rd & 6th house and sits in 5th house in Aquarius. Here person would be involved in religious or spiritual education. They will take scientific approach towards their religious study and will be research oriented. Person may also be interested in being a finance related counselor in both the positions. For a girl, it may show husband working in MNCs. It shows person is like guide or counselor to their loved ones or children.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 6th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 6th house lord, Saturn in 5th house (for Leo/Virgo Ascendants respectively) surely shows a person has a really serious outlook about studies and education. They treat education as their duty/responsibility and in such cases, fun part of life takes a back seat. It shows some real stressful relations which become burden in early 20s and break with time. Saturn here gives long duration relations and then it breaks, so the pain of separation is long lasting. They realize their creative side only in 30s. Saturn's 3rd aspect delays the marriage and hence child birth also gets delayed. Overall, it is a position of person who is seriously involved in studies and willing to leave fun part of life.
Rahu - If Rahu is 6th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 5th 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 5th 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 5th house as discussed above but at the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Capricorn in 5th house shows a person who has a tug of war going inside him. He is highly obsessed to be in relationship, desperately searching for the love of the life and just when he feels he got it and now he can have some romance in life but then it breaks up and it goes like this till he reaches 30s. Rahu and Saturn continue to teach his karmic lesson. On other aspects of 5th house too, person is highly obsessed with gaining Education, Creativity and Children but results will only be seen in 30s. Rahu and Saturn energy coming together is always a stress in the area of life where they fall in chart.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 6th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 5th 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 Creativity suffers. These people are either physically separated from being creative and attaining higher education, means they themselves won't be motivated to study any further after basic education. Likewise, they are not too much into sports, not even as a kid. Love relations would always end in painful breakups or cheating, so much so that later they won't even be inclined to any love relation. A benefic planet with Ketu or its aspect on Ketu/5th house or a running dasha of another planet can change this scenario completely. They will be fond of research on philosophical topics and religious texts, but they will also keep a weird approach towards religion.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
