What if Mars is in the sign of Scorpio for Cancer Ascendant? (Vedic Astrology)
Home : Vedic Astrology: You are here
Also, 5th house is directly opposite to the 11th house of your profession's customers (it doesn't matter what profession you are in) and so 5th house shows how you are known in the eyes of your customers or what is your identity in the eyes of your customers or the masses (as 11th house also represents the masses). 5th and 11th house axis is dealing with the customers and relationships with the customers as both houses are 7th from each other and 7th house is of relationships, partnerships, and contracts.
Since the sign of Scorpio falls on the 5th house of Cancer Ascendants they want to express themselves creatively in the world as a Scorpio and this is confirmed if Mars, the lord of Scorpio, is placed in its own sign (Scorpio) itself. So in terms of career, you may go into a career where there are sudden ups and downs (as Scorpio is sudden ups and downs, risks, emergencies etc) such as the stock markets or into businesses where you gamble a lot and so there is risk involved.
If Saturn is also placed in the 5th house along with Mars and Rahu in 2nd house then gambling type of career is confirmed as Saturn rules the 8th house for Cancer Ascendant and Saturn represents your authority and Karma (job) in your life. Rahu in the 2nd house makes the person obsessed about money and dealing with the money and assets.
Since 5th house is 10th from the 8th house so 5th house is the Karma and authority of the 8th house and 8th house is all things involving risks and emergencies such as sports betting, fire fighting, coding, hacking, occult science, army, gambling, deaths and rebirths, war, magic, transformation, scientific research, things buried underground etc and so in the 5th house you want to express yourself in those fields when Mars is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 5th house.
You spend a lot of your energy in acquiring knowledge (as 5th house is knowledge) related to any of the fields as mentioned in the previous line. Mars is your energy and will power and since it is placed in the 5th house you spend a lot of your energy and use your willpower in things of the 5th house.
Cancer ascendant, in general, want to be known in the world as a wealthy person as Leo sign falls on their 2nd house of wealth. Leo is a very regal sign and of name and fame and so they want to have name and fame by becoming wealthy. This gives a good reason for them to become gamblers to make quick money.
5th house is also of love and romance. So Mars in the 5th house also gives inclination towards secretive love and romance (or secret love affairs) because Scorpio is a secretive sign. This is more so possible if the Lord of the 7th house of relationships (Saturn) is also placed in the 5th house of love and romance. Saturn is actually also the lord of the 8th house of hidden secrets so secret love affairs are definitely possible if Saturn is placed in the 5th house along with Mars.
Since Mars is placed in its own sign of Scorpio the person will get great results in life during the Mahadasa and Anterdasa (planetary periods) of Mars in their life. Since 5th house is also of education the person will not face any problem in clearing exams as a planet sitting in its own house always protects that house and gives great results during its time period. The person is very secretive and intense while studying (during primary education) if Mars is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 5th house.
The person will also be able to make money from gambling unless the 12th house lord (mercury) is placed in the 5th house. The 12th house is the house of losses and so if 12th lord is placed in the 5th house or 9th house (as 9th house is also the house of wealth acquired from the speculative business as it is higher self of 5th house) it may give losses in gambling or speculative business otherwise not. If the 12th lord is seated in the 12th house then the losses will be protected.
Plz note:These are just the possibilities and nothing can be said accurately unless the position of all other planets in the birth chart is know.
