Vedic Astrology default Birth Chart
Rahu will fall in the sign of Scorpio when placed in the 5th house for a Cancer Ascendant. The results of Rahu will depend on the position of Mars in the birth chart as Mars rules the sign of Scorpio. So let's discuss that.

1) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Scorpio and if the lord of the 5th house, Mars, is placed in the 4th house in the sign of Libra then this placement is often found in people who are into speculative business, gambling and stock trading. This is because when the sign of Scorpio falls on the 5th house then "sudden ups and downs" becomes your fun as 5th house is the house of your fun and the sign of Scorpio or 8th house represents "sudden ups and downs" or "risks". Now when 5th house lord, Mars, is placed in the 4th house it means "sudden ups and downs" in things of the 4th house which is nothing but gambling or speculative business as the sign of Libra falling on the 4th house shows business or trade (buy & sell) as Libra is a sign of business and trade and there is also risk (Scorpio) involved in gambling or speculative business.

People who buy something in bulk in the hope that price will rise in the future and then they will sell > this type of business is known as a speculative business and the native may be involved in such business. For example, people who stock grains like wheat, rice, pulses, etc (wholesale businesses) are often seen from this placement as all these commodities are represented by Mars and the 4th house. They stock such commodities in the hope that the price will rise in the future and then they will sell to make profit.

But also they could be the people who are in the speculative business of real estate as Mars is the significator of real estate or properties. But builders are also seen from this placement as they build buildings in order to rent them and make money and such business is also nothing but speculative business. Also, Libra, the sign falling on the 4th house, is also a sign of business and trade and so these are generally the businessmen who are seen from this placement.

Also, people who are in the speculative business of copper-related products such as copper wires, pipes, coins, electronics, and electrical products are also seen from this placement as Mars represents all things made of copper. Here is a list of > all things made of copper. Even the people who are involved in designing of technology are also seen from this placement as Mars is the main planet signifying technology as it rules Scorpio which is the hidden code of the latest technology.

2) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Scorpio and if the lord of the 5th house, Mars, is placed in the 3rd house in the sign of Virgo then this placement is often found in people who are engineers, web programmers, software developers, web designers, etc. as here Mars in the sign of Virgo tends the native to write (as 3rd house is writing and communicating) the hidden codes of Scorpio ruling the 5th house as all the hidden codes in the latest technology is nothing but the representation of the sign of Scorpio. Just open any electronic item from the back and all the coding, wiring or engineering you see inside it is nothing but the representation of the sign of Scorpio. Also, 3rd house is 11th from the 5th house and anything 11th house is networking or engineering.

However, this placement is also found in people who are vehicle drivers on the roads such as auto-rickshaw drivers, bus drivers, rickshaw and cart pullers, etc as 3rd house is also the house of "short distance travel" and "skills of hands" and also there is a lot of "risk" and "sudden ups and downs" in the travel which the sign of Scorpio represents. Also, there are a lot of obstacles, difficulties, and problems in the travel which the sign of Virgo represents and the sign of Virgo is falling on the 3rd house of travel for a Cancer Ascendant.

Also, there are many sports where skills of hands are required. Just think of boxing. First, it requires skills of hands, 2nd > there is a risk (Scorpio) in boxing as you can be hurt by the opponent, and finally, there is a lot of obstacles in this sports which the sign of Virgo represents and there is also aggression which the Mars represents. Other sports where skills of hands are required are also possible with this placement such as basketball, cricket, tennis, etc. Since Virgo is also a sign of health and healing professions related to health and healing, such as surgeries (as Mars represents surgeries), are also possible with this placement of Rahu and Mars.

3) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Scorpio and if the lord of the 5th house, Mars, is placed in the 2nd house in the sign of Leo then this placement can make a person extremely sexual as Leo is a sign of fun and since Mars is placed in Leo it means fun through sex as Mars represents sexuality. If 11th and 10th lord Saturn is also placed along with Mars in the 2nd house then this native could have multiple sexual relationships as Saturn rules the 7th house of relationships and Saturn also rules the 8th house of hidden activities. But since 2nd house is 7th from the 8th house it shows hidden relationships as anything 7th is relationship.

With this placement, there may also be a case of a love affair or sexual abuse or sexual harassment or even rape in the workplace as for a Cancer Ascendant Mars also rules the 10th house of profession (workplace) and the lord of 10th house is seated in the 2nd house. 2nd house is actually 5th from the 10th house and so 2nd house is your reputation or image and fun in the workplace as anything 5th is fun, reputation, and image.

As Saturn is a strict planet and since for a Cancer Ascendant it rules the 7th house and 8th house of sexual relationships it may make the native to force someone in the sex, due to the strictness of Saturn, and that is the reason for sexual harassment. Now let's forget that Saturn is placed in the 2nd house. Let us only consider that Rahu is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 5th house and 5th lord Mars is placed in the sign of Leo in the 2nd house then this placement is also found in people who are involved in gambling in hotels, restaurants, parties, and clubs and there usually such incidents of rape and sexual harassment happen which I mentioned in the previous paragraph. I said gambling because Leo is a sign of fun and since 2nd house is of wealth it means having fun with money which is nothing but gambling.

Also, there are singers, dancers and musicians who perform in places like hotels, restaurants and clubs and such people may also have this placement. People who are running sports clubs and also involved in sports may also have this placement as Leo is also a sign of sports as sports is also fun which the sign of Leo represents. In general, people who are into stage performance can be seen from this placement.

4) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Scorpio and if the lord of the 5th house, Mars, is placed in the 1st house in the sign of Cancer then here Mars is debilitated as Mars is considered debilitated in the sign of Cancer. Since Mars represents the energy and willpower withing us the native may not have enough willpower and he may not be courageous. Such people are not good at sports as in sports you need a lot of energy and willpower. The person may also be physically weak as 1st house represents our physical body in Vedic Astrology. But this is only so if Mars is truly debilitated and there is no "Neech Bhang Raj Yog" occurring in the birth chart.

If Mars here is truly debilitated it will also be hard for the native to have his own home or own property (such as his own shop) as Mars is the significator of land and property and when Mars goes bad (debilitated or weak) you cannot achieve land and property in life of your own. You may be forced to live on rent. Such placement of Mars and Rahu is often found in the birth chart of housewives who cook at home or a chef in a hotel or a restaurant could also have this placement as Cancer is a sign of nurturing and cooking and serving food is nothing but nurturing.

People who are serving food on the streets such as in a catering or food van or trolley or handcart usually have this kind of placement and they really don't have their own shop as their Mars is debilitated. But debilitated Mars may even make you cheat on your spouse as there is an aspect on the 7th house from the 1st house where debilitated Mars is placed. And you may also face a divorce because of this. But teachers and spiritual and religious Gurus are also seen from this placement as 1st house is 9th from the 5th house and 5th house also represents children and education. Anything 9th means giving knowledge or information or giving knowledge of God as the 5th house also represents God and ancient texts. Doctors, healers, and Nurses can also be seen from this placement as Cancer is a sign of curing and nurturing others through surgery as Mars represents surgery.

5) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Scorpio and if the lord of the 5th house, Mars, is placed in the 12th house in the sign of Gemini then this placement is mostly found in people who are in the world of information technology (IT). You see there are so many employees working for IT companies and many of these are multi-national companies. It means, for example, working for Google in India though Google may be a USA based company. Such employees usually have this kind of placement as 12th house is the house of foreign countries. But this is more so possible if your Mars is placed in the sign of Gemini in the 12th house but in the Nakshatra of Aradra as this Nakshatra is more about information technology. Mars is also associated with technology as Mars represents copper and all the technology uses copper.

Also, people who are running websites and youtube channels over the internet are also seen from this placement as this is all part of the world of information technology. Web design, web programming, data entry, writing blogs, software development, app development, etc are all part of the information technology. Also, 11th house represents technology but when you open technology from the back and work on its source code then it is the 12th house which is operating and so Mars in the 12th house may work on the source code.

6) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Scorpio and if the lord of the 5th house, Mars, is placed in the 11th house in the sign of Taurus then this placement is great to have as here 10th house lord, Mars, is also placed in the 11th house and so it can give a lot of gains in life as any planet which is sitting next to the sign or house it owns then it gives great gains in life. I have already written about it in the article > when can Rahu give a lot of gains in life.

This placement is often found in people who represent a large network of people such as a singer whose popularity is spread all over the country or the world as 11th house is the house of large networks. People who are in higher government posts are also seen from this placement as they represent the masses or the public. People in the finance and tax department in the government are usually seen from this placement as the sign of Taurus represents the finances.

Also, there are people who have a large audience or customers over the internet or media such as artists, actors, musicians, e-commerce website owners, beauticians, fashion designers, news readers, etc and such people can also be seen from this placement as internet is a huge community represented by the sign of Aquarius or 11th house. Owners of big brands also have this kind of placement as their products are distributed all over the country and this is nothing but distribution or networks represented by the 11th house.

7) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Scorpio and if the lord of the 5th house, Mars, is placed in the 10th house in the sign of Aries then this is the best placement for people who are in sports and competitions as 10th house is the house of status and you get status or higher ranks when you compete.

In the default zodiac, the sign of Capricorn rules the 10th house and this sign is all about status and higher posts and higher positions and for that you have to compete and win. When you win you get a higher status and that is the reason Mars becomes very competitive in the 10th house in order to win and achieve higher status and so people in sports (including athletics) are seen from this placement.

Mars is considered strongest in the 10th house and since Mars represents land and property such people get the home and shop (or office) of their own with ease. If it doesn't happen in early life then later in life they will certainly be the owner of their own land and they don't have to be on rent. Also, a strong Mars may get you in technology such as engineering or information technology and in this field, you can make a lot of money as all the codes written for the development of technology are represented by Mars and a strong Mars can make you expert in that.

8) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Scorpio and if the lord of the 5th house, Mars, is placed in the 9th house in the sign of Pisces then this is a great placement to have for the Mars. This placement is even better to have then the 10th house Mars. Pisces is a sign which makes you move out of this normal world.

For example, when you go deep into the ocean or sea or if you go to the Himalayas or you go to the sky or outer space then you are out of this normal world. So here, with the placement of Mars in the sign of Pisces in the 9th house, it can make you do things like swimming, trekking, mountaineering, scuba diving, going deep into the sea, ice skating, skiing, etc. In general, this placement is meant for people who are into expeditions and cruises.

This expedition may also be going into the outer space or riding an air balloon or being an airforce pilot as all these things make you move out of this normal world. Mars in the sign of Pisces makes your body flexible like a fish as the sign of Pisces represents a fish and this kind of highly flexible body can help you do stunts of gymnastics or even something like martial arts. People participating in the Olympics usually have this kind of placement.

9) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Scorpio and if the lord of the 5th house, Mars, is placed in the 8th house in the sign of Aquarius then this type of placement is often found in the birth chart of people who are involved in making hidden (behind the scenes) networks whether digital or otherwise > such as what a satellite engineer does.

Also, network engineers, in general, are also seen from this placement. Network engineers are responsible for implementing, maintaining, supporting, developing and, in some cases, designing communication networks within an organization or between organizations through computers, voice, LAN, WAN, and firewall. Also, people who are involved in hacking can also be seen from this placement as they try to parse the networks and steal the data.

People involved in telecommunication engineering and software engineering are also seen from this placement as that is also networking and Mars is a natural engineer. But this placement could also be found in people who may have multiple sexual relationships as 8th house is also of hidden sexual activities. This is more so possible if Venus is also placed in the 8th house along with Mars. Army generals are also seen from this placement as they put a lot of efforts in training and looking over the network of the soldiers under them. People who play musical instruments like tabla and drums can also be seen from this placement.

10) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Scorpio and if the lord of the 5th house, Mars, is placed in the 7th house in the sign of Capricorn then here this Mars is exalted and an exalted Mars is extremely good for sports such as cricket, football, tennis, hockey, etc But police officers and people in army can also be seen from this placement as a lot of willpower is needed to be in police or army and that is only possible if Mars is strong and an exalted Mars is considered very strong as it gives a lot of willpower and energy to compete and fight.

11) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Scorpio and if the lord of the 5th house, Mars, is placed in the 6th house in the sign of Sagittarius then Rahu can make the native obsessed about fighting for the rights of the people such as a lawyer or an attorney. Also, people who are into investigation and research to find the truth such as an investigative journalist or a detective or a forensic expert can also be seen from this placement. But this placement could also give sex or private parts related diseases like piles as 6th house is the house of diseases.
