What if 2nd house lord is placed in the 5th house? (Vedic Astrology)
Home : Vedic Astrology: You are here
1) For Aries Ascendant: If 2nd house lord Venus is placed in the sign of Leo in the 5th house it shows the native could be deeply involved in stage performance. The person could be a singer, dancer, actor, musician, etc depending on the location of other planets in the birth chart. This is because Venus represents creativity and the sign of Leo is all about stage performances and representing the masses. This also shows that your source of wealth in life could be from the stage performance as the lord of the 2nd house is the source of wealth in your life.
The person could also be involved in food shows or cooking shows or trade shows with this kind of placement. Here are the 10 most popular Indian cooking shows to learn more. The native could also be in speculative business as 5th house is ruled by Sun (in the default zodiac) and Sun is future while the moon is the past. So, all that you buy in the hope that in the future its price will go high is a representation of the 5th house. This shows that you may be into the speculative business of food, currency, and even stocks as the 2nd house is the house of your financial assets and food intake. When the 2nd lord is placed into the 5th house it shows you are putting your assets into risk. In childhood, you may also get obsessed about playing video games as 5th house represents games in general.
2) For Taurus Ascendant: If 2nd house lord Mercury is placed in the sign of Virgo in the 5th house it shows the native could be involved in singing especially if Mars is also placed along with Mercury in the 5th house. This is because Mercury is communication and writing and how can you have fun with communication? (as 5th house is of fun). This is through singing or doing something like Mimicry. But may also be Radio Jockey, acting, comedy, joke books, writing blogs or articles for fun and entertainment websites, etc.
Since 5th house is also of sports you could also be a sports commentator with this placement of Mercury. Writing blogs or articles on food and finance could also be your hobby with this placement. Drawing and painting kind of hobbies cannot also be ruled out because mercury in the sign of Virgo involves complicated work (detail-oriented work) like drawing. The native could also be involved in spending a lot of money in promoting their business brand with this placement and their income could also come from this kind of promotion.
3) For Gemini Ascendant: The planet moon rules their 2nd house and if it is placed in the sign of Libra in the 5th house it shows that your emotions and feelings are towards your family, acquiring wealth and sensual pleasures of life but since Moon is placed in the 5th house your mind is always in making relationships and contracts in the field of fun and entertainment (as the 5th house is of fun and entertainment) and through that you get your pleasure and even money as the moon is the source of wealth for a Cancer Ascendant.
But just with the placement of moon, it is not actually possible to guess the profession as it may be that you are doing a certain type of work but the mind could be somewhere else and not in the work. Also, sometimes the situation of life is such that you cannot do what you have in mind. Saturn, Mercury, Sun, Venus, Mars are better planets to guess the profession.
But with the moon in the sign of Libra in the 5th house you could be a journalist who is engaged in making relationships with people in politics, cinema or even the cinema audience to get a review about the movies they watched or even to interview the film stars and people on higher posts in the government or some business. Your mind could also be in arts and creativity with this placement of moon as 5th house represents that. But Venus should be placed in the 5th house in the sign of Libra along with Moon for that to happen. If Saturn is also placed in the sign of Libra in the 5th house then making relationships with people in politics and the fun and entertainment world becomes a career.
4) For Cancer Ascendant: The planet Sun rules their 2nd house and if it is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 5th house it shows the native could be into gambling. 2nd house is money and the sign of Leo is playing and so playing with the money which is nothing but gambling. But since Scorpio is a karmic sign and Sun represents the father > the native may not have good relationships with his/her father and you may go against him to gamble his money in speculative business.
This placement of Sun could also make the native very sexual as Scorpio is a sign of sexual intercourse and Sun is your fun and entertainment. Also, the native may have multiple relationships or affairs if Mars and Saturn are placed along with Sun in the 5th house and Venus is located in the 8th house in the sign of Aquarius. With this placement, the native could also invest his/her money in adult websites and movies and can make money out of it.
The native could also be someone who does a lot of research work in the film industry such as film scriptwriters, songwriters, film directors, video games and animation developers, cinematographer, etc. People who are somehow involved in the amusement parks may also have this placement of Sun. Scorpio is the risk and 5th house is fun so it is risky fun (lots of ups and downs in the rides in the amusement parks).
5) For Leo Ascendant: The planet Mercury rules their 2nd house and if it is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Sagittarius it shows the native's communication is mostly about Dharma, religion, law, philosophy, ethics, rules and regulations. This signifies a lawyer or someone who is involved in religious studies as 5th house is also of education and knowledge and sign of Sagittarius is a sign of law and religion.
The native could also be a Guru or a teacher in religious studies or any other subject depending on the different locations of Jupiter in the birth chart. Virgo (ruler of Mercury) is a sign of arguments and there happens a lot of arguments in studies and court cases and so the profession of a teacher, Lawyer, Chartered Accountant, etc. is likely. The native could also make his income through one of these professions and could also be possessive about his beliefs.
6) For Virgo Ascendant: The planet Venus rules their 2nd house and if it is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Capricorn it could mean the person is very creative as the sign of Capricorn is a focused, disciplined and a practical sign like Virgo and since Venus represents creativity the native could be very focused in arts and creativity (unless Saturn is damaged) especially in the 5th house of creativity and children. The native could also become a good sportsman with this placement of Venus especially if Mars is also placed in the sign of Capricorn along with Venus in the 5th house.
For example, if you love to hit a ball > that is Venus in the sign of Capricorn because Capricorn (Saturn) is a sign of action and when you hit a ball with a bat it is an action and when you have a love for hitting a ball it is considered having Venus (love and passion) for an action (Saturn).
Also, Mars in the sign of Capricorn makes a person very competitive which is nothing but involving in sports or something like a policeman or a military man or people who are in government posts such as IAS and IPS. Also, the 5th house represents sports and higher posts. The native could also be a recruiter with the placement of Venus in the sign of Capricorn.
