What if Rahu is in the 5th house for a Virgo Ascendant? (Vedic Astrology)
Home : Vedic Astrology: Rahu in 5th house: You are here
1) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Capricorn and if the lord of the 5th house, Saturn, is placed in the 4th house in the sign of Sagittarius then Rahu here can get the native obsessed about performing a lot of rituals and such people are usually priests.
There are unlimited types of rituals performed throughout the world and in India some of them are like worshipping or serving God in a temple, performing rituals for childbirth and marriage, performing rituals at sacred places, performing rituals at death and funeral ceremonies, performing rituals such as Yajna or Hawan for the purification of home and offices, etc. You can check this Wikipedia page for all kinds of rituals performed in different religions of the world. Gurus and teachers can also be seen from this placement.
2) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Capricorn and if the lord of the 5th house, Saturn, is placed in the 3rd house in the sign of Scorpio then this placement is often found in the birth chart of people who are serving the masses (public) in travel such as auto-rickshaw drivers, taxi drivers, private and government bus drivers, traffic police, rickshaw and cart pullers, road makers, mechanical and civil engineers, mechanics, motor repairing service providers, telecommunication engineers, etc.
This is because 3rd house is the house of short-distance travel and the sign of Scorpio on the 3rd house shows risks, emergencies and sudden ups & downs in travel which indicates vehicle drivers as I mentioned above as there are a lot of ups & downs and risks involved in driving on the road. Also, 3rd house is the house of communication and the sign of Scorpio is a sign of digging deep and these are engineers only in the communication and travel who goes to the roots and dig deep. Engineering is all about going to the roots or source to make or build something which the sign of Scorpio represents.
Also, people who are involved in cable, wire or communication equipment manufacturing may also be seen from this placement. Also, people who are working on petrol pumps may also be seen from this placement as Saturn also represents oil and petroleum. People involved in welding work may also have this placement. In general, factory workers in iron and steel companies are usually seen from this placement as Saturn also represents iron and steel. However, electricians are also seen from this placement as there are a lot of risks involved in this work and risk is represented by the sign of Scorpio.
3) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Capricorn and if the lord of the 5th house, Saturn, is placed in the 2nd house in the sign of Libra then this placement can make the native obsessed about speculative business as 2nd house is of wealth and family assets. When you buy anything it becomes your wealth or assets. Libra is a sign of buy and sell and so people who are in commodity and stock trading usually are seen from this placement.
There are a lot of things involved in the category of commodity such as precious metals, industrial metals, crude oil, natural gas, agricultural commodities such as grains, food, fiber, livestock, meat, etc You can get the full list of products involved in commodities in this Wikipedia article > under the heading > traded commodity classes > at the bottom of the page.
Some people don't trade themselves but they are financial advisors of trading and earn commission or work on the salary basis on behalf of a finance company and such people can also be seen from this placement. This placement, however, is also valid for a teacher or a professor who teaches finances. A lot will depend on the position of the 2nd lord Venus in the birth chart.
4) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Capricorn and if the lord of the 5th house, Saturn, is placed in the 1st house in the sign of Virgo then this is a very difficult position to have as it makes you work hard on your physical body as the 1st house represents our physical body but it may also give a lot of diseases and sufferings on the physical body as here 6th house lord is also seated in the 1st house of physical body and 6th house is of difficulties and sufferings.
People in manual labor are mostly seen from this placement and also people who are involved in providing cleaning services are also seen from this placement as Virgo is also a sign of cleaning. People who clean toilets at public places are also seen from this placement.
People like Mahendra Singh Dhoni, an Indian cricketer, has also this placement and in cricket, you really need to work hard but his Rahu is in 11th house and not 5th house. Sportsmen (including athletes) are most commonly seen from this placement and these people are really very harsh in sports as they will do anything to win even if they have to cheat to take unfair advantage as Saturn is a very harsh and cruel planet. These are mostly footballers and hockey players as both the games are very harsh.
Physical fitness trainers and wrestlers are also seen from this placement as Virgo is a sign of health and healing and when this sign is placed on the 1st house of the physical body it means physical fitness which is nothing but taking care of health. People involved in weight lifting sports are most commonly seen from this placement as weight used is made of iron or steel which the Saturn represents. But you should know there are many weight lifting sports.
5) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Capricorn and if the lord of the 5th house, Saturn, is placed in the 12th house in the sign of Leo then this placement is often not considered good as it ends your romantic life as 5th house is the house of love and romance but the lord of 5th house is sitting in the 12th house which is 8th place away from the 5th house and anything 8th is the end or death as when we die it is the ending of our life.
Here it is the ending of fun and love & romance and also it may cause the death of your child (or you may not have children) as the 5th house also represents your children but this cannot be confirmed unless the position of other planets in the birth chart are known. All these are just possibilities. This is because Saturn is a planet of restriction and so it restricts fun (also love & romance) when placed in the sign of Leo in the 12th house and also, in general, 12th house is the house of losses.
The ending of fun may also be the ending of the fun of sex which could even be impotency but again this is just a possibility but if Mars and Venus are also debilitated in the birth chart then it could be impotency as Mars controls our sexuality. Such placement may get the native isolated from the real world and also social life and image of the native may suffer as the sign of Leo represents our image and our ability to present ourself in front of the people and Saturn restricts this quality when placed in this sign. It is better for such people to move in a foreign country and become a teacher there or teach children who are in the slum area as Saturn represents slum area and Leo is a sign of basic education.
This placement is also meant for people who are those factory workers who are working hard to create or make or produce or manufacture products related to fun and entertainment such as toys, sports equipment, musical instruments, kids products of fun and entertainment, water parks equipment, playground equipment such as a seesaw, etc. This is because Saturn is a worker and so it makes you work and also Saturn is controlling the 6th house of work and 5th house of creativity for a Virgo Ascendant.
6) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Capricorn and if the lord of the 5th house, Saturn, is placed in the 11th house in the sign of Cancer then this kind of placement is often found in the birth chart of people who provide vehicle repairing services and also who are involved in selling the street foods as 11th house is the house of public or the masses and the sign of Cancer is all about nurturing and so it means nurturing the public which is basically serving food to the public through a restaurant or a hotel or on the streets.
The sign of Cancer also represents conveniences of life and vehicles are also one of them and Saturn is a mechanic (as Saturn represents iron and steel) and so people involved in repairing of motor parts or vehicles, in general, are also seen from this placement. Also, people who are involved in the manufacturing of vehicles or industrial machines or home appliances such as mechanical and electrical engineers are also seen from this placement.
People involved in the repairing of home appliances can also be seen from this placement as all things related to home are represented by the sign of Cancer. People involved in the making or repairing of things related to home such as furniture can also be seen from this placement of Rahu and Saturn. Also, the workers in factories engaged in the manufacturing or producing of clothes and food can also be seen from this placement.
7) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Capricorn and if the lord of the 5th house, Saturn, is placed in the 10th house in the sign of Gemini then this placement is often found in the birth chart of people who are involved in providing printing services as Gemini is a sign of printing. There are different types of printing such as digital printing, offset printing, flexography, letterpress printing, screen printing, photostat, laser printing, etc.
People involved in the repairing or manufacturing of printing machines or computer printers can also be seen from this placement. These are the actual people who are involved in the work and not those who are the owner of a printing company. People who are involved in t-shirt printing can also be seen from this same placement.
Also, people involved in the manufacturing of printing and stationery items such as pen, pencil, books, chart paper, diaries, promotional items, etc can also be seen from this placement. Also, people engaged in the packaging and labeling of products can also be seen from this placement. These are actually those people who actually work to package the goods or products in a factory or the warehouse.
8) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Capricorn and if the lord of the 5th house, Saturn, is placed in the 9th house in the sign of Taurus then this placement is often found in the horoscope of Virgo ascendant people who are into creativity such as designing, embroidery, arts, crafts, painting, drawing, designing in the digital world such as web design, coding, programming, app development, software development, etc. This is because 9th house is the house of publishing whether you publish on a piece of paper or over the internet. Since 9th house is also Google search you may search a lot in Google or other search engines with this placement.
9) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Capricorn and if the lord of the 5th house, Saturn, is placed in the 8th house in the sign of Aries then this placement is actually full of risks in life as Saturn is debilitated here (unless there is a Neech Bhang Raj Yog occurring) and that also in the 8th house of sudden events. This may cause sudden accidents, sports injuries or any other type of injury such as an injury during the work.
This type of placement is often found in people who are involved in a type of work where there are a lot of risks (or emergency) and physical work involved such as working on the construction sites on hills, working in mines, working in underground sewer lines, underground metro lines, railway lines, groundsman underground, civil underground work, underground lineman, mining engineers, etc. But mostly these are the laborers who work on the construction sites.
10) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Capricorn and if the lord of the 5th house, Saturn, is placed in the 7th house in the sign of Pisces then this placement is meant for people who want to go for hiking, trekking, and mountaineering. These are the people who are mostly into expeditions and cruises and want to experience the world that is outside this normal world. This is because Pisces is a sign that represents moving out of this normal world such as climbing the Himalayas, riding an air balloon, skiing on the ice for recreation, going into the sea such as scuba diving, helicopter trip, etc.
Pisces is spiritual energy and so it gives a great strength when Saturn is placed in the sign of Pisces. Just watch this youtube video and this person can pull the car using his teeth and teeth are represented by the planet Saturn. This kind of strength can be achieved with this placement. All kinds of sports and recreational activities where such strength is required can be seen from this placement of Rahu and Saturn. Read more here > Saturn in Pisces. Pisces is the kundalini power within us and you can also experience this kundalini power online. Just read this complete article and it tells how to get your kundalini awakened online.
11) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Capricorn and if the lord of the 5th house, Saturn, is placed in the 6th house in the sign of Aquarius then this is the best placement to have for a Virgo Ascendant to make a lot of wealth in life. I have already written about it in the article > when can Rahu give a lot of wealth. This placement is often found in the birth chart of people who represent a large group of audience or masses. Take the example of Sandeep Maheswari and he is always involved in the masses (the young generation) and always motivating them. He has millions of subscribers on his youtube channel.
Many actors and actresses have also this kind of placement as they also represent the masses. Many political leaders and social workers also have this placement. Also, many musicians have this placement. This is because the sign of Aquarius represents the masses and Saturn does the action of dealing with the masses when placed in this sign. Many people who are running popular websites and youtube channels over the internet also have this placement as Saturn in the sign of Aquarius expands your network of whatever you are doing and over the internet and other media there is a maximum scope for the expansion as through the media you represent a large audience, though from only behind the scenes.
