What if Rahu is in 5th house for a Scorpio 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 Pisces but if the lord of 5th house, Jupiter, is placed in the 4th house in the sign of Aquarius then this placement could make you a technology expert as Aquarius is a sign of all the modern technology and also currently we are running the age of Aquarius where we can connect from people all over the world through technology such as internet and mobile phones and everything has become digital. All this digital technology is nothing but the representation of the sign of Aquarius. Aquarius is a sign of being collective and the technology such as the internet and computers help us in being collective though maybe from behind the scenes.
So with this placement of Rahu and Jupiter you could be someone working over the computers and making use of the internet to work online in different fields such as networking, web programming, web design, app development, software development, online marketing, network engineering, internet service, making youtube videos and websites, etc. But you could also be someone in the field of mechanical and electrical engineering where you could be involved in the engineering of vehicles, home appliances, etc. But a lot will depend on the position of Saturn, lord of 4th house, in the birth chart.
People in aerospace engineering could also be seen from this placement. This placement is actually found in the most intelligent people on this earth who are doing a lot of research in all the latest technology whether it is using the technology in the medical field (such as all the modern medical equipment) or as a part of home conveniences such as making use of the technology to make things like hybrid cars or an air conditioner with a remote control or even if it is robotics. Scorpio ascendants, in general, are meant for engineering as the sign of Scorpio falls on their Ascendant and the sign of Scorpio is all about digging into the source of all the latest technology.
But if Jupiter falls in the sign of Aquarius in the Dhanistha Nakshatra (pada 3) in the 4th house then Rahu in the 5th house could even make you a great musical instrument player as Dhanistha Nakshatra is ruled by Mars and Pada 3 is ruled by Venus and the combination of both can make you people like Ravi Shankar and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan who were great musicians. Also, Pisces is a sign of spirituality (where Rahu is seated) and how do you express your spirituality? It is through music, dance, art, and singing. Read more about it in the article > Venus in Pisces.
But since the sign of Aquarius also represents the public or the masses you could also be using your wisdom in dealing with the masses which could even be social welfare or social reforms. These people could also be into kundalini awakening and meditation as kundalini power is represented by the sign of Aquarius as it connects us to the source of our being which is the sign of Pisces.
2) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Pisces but if the lord of 5th house, Jupiter, is placed in the 3rd house in the sign of Capricorn then here you may think Jupiter is debilitated but it is not due to the Neech Bhang Raj Yog occurring. This is because Rahu here amplifies the debilitated Jupiter to make it a normal Jupiter as Rahu amplifies the sign it is placed in which in turn amplifies the lord of the sign which is Jupiter here.
This type of placement is often seen in the birth chart of Scorpio Ascendant people who are driving on the road such as rickshaw pullers, cart pullers, auto drivers, bus drivers, taxi drivers, etc. This is because Rahu is in Pisces and Pisces is a sign of distant places or moving to far off places and 3rd house is the house of short journeys.
Jupiter in the sign of Capricorn in the 3rd house also means using the wisdom or discretion in some physical action as Capricorn is a sign that represents physical action and all the vehicles are made of iron, steel or wood which is also represented by the sign of Capricorn and in driving vehicles or machines you don't need to use your brain and the wisdom is used only in physical action (by moving the steering wheel of the vehicle).
Also, people selling stuff on the road by moving ahead on the road such as sugarcane juice extractor, vegetable and fruit sellers on the cart, etc are also seen from this placement as their Rahu is in moving to distant places to sell their stuff. Logistics and courier people are also seen from this placement as they also need to move far off places (Pisces) to deliver the delivery.
3) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Pisces but if the lord of 5th house, Jupiter, is placed in the 2nd house in the sign of Sagittarius then this placement is often found in people who want to explore the world for knowledge such as wildlife photographers, people in long-distance travel to know about the ancient structures and monuments or pilgrimages, hunters, people always on the move to different cities or countries for business opportunities, etc.
People who roam in jungles or mountains to get valuable animal or plant extracted products such as animal wool, honey, meat, ivory, fur, leather, silk, fiber, yarn, whale oil, seashells, shark jaws, coral, etc are also seen from this placement. These animal extracted products are often used in clothing, fashion accessories, decorative items, upholstery, drums (musical instrument), leather made products such as leather jackets, footwear, etc.
People involved in crocodile farming and pearl farming are also seen from this placement. Sagittarius is actually a sign of exploring the world and since it is falling on the 2nd house for a Scorpio Ascendant it means exploring the world for animal and plant related products as I mentioned above or here is the list of all products obtained from wild animals.
4) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Pisces but if the lord of 5th house, Jupiter, is placed in the 1st house in the sign of Scorpio then this type of placement is often found in the birth chart of Scorpio Ascendant people who are in sports (including athletics). Since 1st house represents our physical body and since the sign of Scorpio is falling on the physical body it means a lot of ups and downs on the physical body as Scorpio is a sign of sudden ups & downs, risks, emergencies, etc.
Also, 5th house is the house of recreational activities where Rahu is seated and sports is nothing but a recreational activity. When you involve yourself in athletics such as high jump, long jump, pole vault, hurdle race, triple jump, martial arts, dancing, horse jumping, basketball, diving, etc there is a lot of ups and downs on the physical body and that is the reason sports is possible with this placement. Here is the complete list of jumping sports. But such placement could also get you in occult science and paranormal as the sign of Scorpio also represents these things.
5) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Pisces but if the lord of 5th house, Jupiter, is placed in the 12th house in the sign of Libra then this placement could make the native very creative as here Jupiter is sitting in its own house and that also in the sign of Libra which is a sign of Venus and Venus represents creativity. A creative talent that is beyond the normal is usually seen from this placement.
These Scorpio Ascendant people could be extremely good designers whether it is a design on a cloth or a piece of paper or even if it is a digital design such as web design or software design or mobile design or any other type of designing. Along with this placement if Mercury is also placed in the 11th house in its own sign of Virgo then these people could also be good software and web programmers and even app developers.

People involved in the manufacturing of musical instruments, kids games, kids toys, etc can also be seen from this placement. However, people involved in corporate entertainment can also be seen from this placement as 10th house also represents the recruitment, workplace, employee management or corporate world in general.

This is because Cancer is a sign of nurturing and serving food is one of the ways to nurture and 9th house is the house of publishing and here you publish your food information on a website.
So, with this placement, you may be involved in online websites dealing with vehicles, food, real estate, home appliances, furniture, beds, luxury items, utensils, etc. Also, Jupiter in the sign of Cancer is considered exalted and so it can make a lot of money with this placement if you start an online website related to home conveniences related products or services or even if you do an export or import business. All home-related products are the representation of the sign of Cancer or 4th house. However, this placement could also make you a teacher or a professor or even an astrologer or occult science specialist, in general, as the sign of Cancer is also nurturing through education.
9) If Rahu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Pisces but if the lord of 5th house, Jupiter, is placed in the 8th house in the sign of Gemini then this placement is often found in those Scorpio Ascendant people who hunt for animals in the jungle to obtain their skin or meat as there are many products in our daily life made from animal body parts.
This is a recreational activity for these people to kill animals and obtain luxury items from their body parts to make it a business. This is more so possible if Jupiter falls in the Nakshatra of Mrigshira in the 8th house as this Nakshatra is really about searching in the jungle as it's symbol is "Deer's head" and 8th house is the house of doing hidden and secret activities which is what hunting is. In No.3 point paragraph above you can find details of more products related to animals that are obtained by killing them. Also, people who are involved in selling or marketing such animal obtained products may also have this placement.
Such people also travel a lot in different countries to carry out their business of export and import or for adventure sports as Gemini represents skills of hands and many adventure sports require skills of hands. Also, 8th house is the house of adventures as it is the house of sudden ups and downs and adventure sports involve a lot of sudden ups and downs and risks. Here is a list of 25 best adventure sports. When you will think of these sports all of them involve risks which are what 8th house is all about > risks and emergencies.
