Now, what does it mean to have 7th house lord sitting in 5th house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 7th house of your horoscope is sitting in the 5th house of horoscope.
Now, what is the impact of having 7th house lord sitting in 5th house?
Its generic interpretation is that you look for and get a spouse who can Educate and Guide you. One, who can be Teacher/Guide to your kids. You basically look for a Spouse who is high on intellect. This is one position where person really wants a love marriage to happen. Anytime, 5th house, 7th house or 9th house (5th from 5th - Bhavat Bhavam) lords sit in each others houses, it almost negates any chance of arranged marriage as the houses which are exchanging energy are house of Marriage and house of Romance, but if marriage will prosper or not depends of planet's condition, dashas and transits. This also shows you want your spouse to be very good with creative arts. This also shows some Celebrity as the house of Masses and house of Creativity is getting linked.
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 5th house lord as 7th house lord is going in 5th house. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 7th house Lord in 5th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Aquarius Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 7th house with Leo sign and sits in the 5th house in the sign of Gemini. It shows that you look for a spouse who is very communicative. You look for a teacher basically, as Sun is in 5th house of education and in communicative sign of Gemini. At the same time, you like to have a spouse who is fun to be around and playful like a kid as Mercury (Gemini's lord) is all about being childlike. As 5th house is also about fun, enjoyment and happiness, it makes this requirement of fun in relationship more and more necessary.
Moon - So it is Capricorn Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 7th house with Cancer sign and sits in 5th house in Taurus, where it is exalted. This shows that your spouse has a great balance of mind and is quite motherly and nourishing to kids. It also shows that your spouse is very emotional towards relation and this is one position where love marriage is inevitable as Moon is exalted in 5th house. It also shows you yourself are very emotional towards love and kids. You find happiness when you are around children or in love.
Mars - Mars can be 7th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Libra Ascendant - So if it is Libra Ascendant, Mars rules 7th & 2nd house and sits in 5th house in Aquarius sign. This shows you get a spouse who is more like a dominant figure in relation and with kids. Spouse is more like a Military General when he deals with kids. As Mars is in enemy sign, it shows good old type of relation where couple fight but stay together. Love is more about dominating each other here. Again, any other yoga or dasha can change the scenario totally. It also shows that your spouse may be working in a Large Organization, not only because Mars is in Aquarius sign which represents Large Organizations but it also aspects 11th house of Large Organizations and 12th house of MNCs and Foreign Companies.
Taurus Ascendant - Now if it is Taurus Ascendant, Mars rules 7th & 12th house and sits in 5th house in Virgo sign. As Mars is again in an enemy sign, we can see similar results here. Here, spouse may be of a nature where he/she seeks perfection. So, their energy goes into nitpick the faults in love matters which may lead to disputes and dominance struggle. Spouse may be highly interested in healing activities. In matters of hobbies and interests, they can do very well in any detailed oriented work. They may be very direct or even harsh in their speech.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 7th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Sagittarius Ascendant - If it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Mercury rules 7th & 10th houses and sits in 5th house in Aries. This shows a very communicative and fun-to-be like spouse. Very creative at the same time. Spouse gets along really well with kids. At the same time, as there is again energy exchange between Mercury and Mars, this will again give a very direct speech, but it may not be a harsh one. This position is really good for education. In sports, it can make someone Sprinter, as Mars' energy is going into nature of Mercury to Travel and run around.
Pisces Ascendant - If it is Pisces Ascendant, then Mercury rules 4th and 7th house and sits in 5th house in Cancer. Here, the communications of spouse become very emotional. These people may not be treated as realistic and practical in love matters or relations as they will take decisions out of emotions, but with experience they will learn. This is one thing about gentle benefic planets, even if they are not well placed, they will never end anything. They will keep things moving and will give chance to person to improve.
Venus - Venus also can be 7th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Scorpio Ascendant - If it is Scorpio Ascendant, Venus rules 7th & 12th house and sits in 5th house in Pisces sign, where it is exalted. This is again a very good position for being in love marriage. Planet of love, ruling the house of marriage and sitting exalted in house of love. You can't ask for better placement than this for a love marriage to happen. This shows a highly spiritual spouse, who works like a Guru or Guide in relation or with kids. This will be a beautiful relation to be in. The most pleasant. I am not finding anything wrong to write about it. A highly creative spouse.
Aries Ascendant - If it is an Aries Ascendant, Venus rules 2nd & 7th house and sits in 5th house in Leo. This shows a spouse who loves to be in limelight. It means this spouse will have a love towards all the Royal things of life. They would love to have a big house and dine in best restaurant of city. This tendency sometimes spoil the relation, as Venus is in enemy sign of Sun. But again, at best it will heat up the relation and not burn it totally as Venus is benefic planet. Spouse will be highly creative and would love to be on stage. They would be working in Creative fields like Media, Arts etc. Spouse can be a celeb too with both positions of Venus here.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 7th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Gemini Ascendant - If it is Gemini Ascendant, Jupiter rules 7th & 10th house and sits in 5th house in Libra Sign. This shows a spouse who is more a teacher or guide in life of native. They can be counselors too. As Libra is sign of Relationships, they can be very much a relationship and marriage adviser/counselor. Here, relationship is good enough to prosper as Jupiter is the most benefic planet, but as it is in enemy sign, person feels less than 100% in relation. But still it is not a bad placement for relationship to prosper if used sensibly.
Virgo Ascendant - If it is Virgo Ascendant, Jupiter rules 4th & 7th house and sits in 5th house in Capricorn, where it is debilitated. If Jupiter is nearby its exact debilitation degrees, it shows that person gets into love, marries another person and after sometimes native feels he has not married the right person or doesn't feel fulfilled in relation. For a girl, Jupiter represents husband and if it is really close to debilitation degree, it shows a kind of separation. That's where a thorough horoscope match is necessary to marry a guy who has Jupiter and Venus in better places. This person also gets knowledge and education, but isn't able to make good use of it. Here, spouse may not be able to give right guidance to native or children. Again, any other yoga or dasha can change the scenario totally.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 7th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 7th house lord, Saturn in 5th house (for Cancer/Leo 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 at least in 20s.
Rahu - If Rahu is 7th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 5th house in Sagittarius then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Sagittarius in 5th house will transform Rahu as Jupiter as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. At the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Sagittarius in 5th house basically indicates a weird or unusual type of relation. It means may be your spouse is from different culture or country or you people met online etc. Spouse will be obsessive about Different Religions and Philosophies of the world. Don't be surprised if you see them in Library or reading online all the time. At the same time, they are obsessed about their love matters. It is either 100% or nothing for them. They want full attention or just chuck it off. They love to have lots of kids. Highly highly Creative person.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 7th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 5th house in Virgo 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. As Ketu is in Virgo, it means they are not much into digging details and being perfect about things. They feel isolated from any act of being analytical and critical.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
