What if Ketu is in 5th house in Scorpio for Cancer Ascendant? (Vedic Astrology)



Ketu will fall in the sign of Scorpio when placed in the 5th house for a Cancer Ascendant. There are several possibilities with this placement and here are some of them.

1) With this placement, the native could change his romantic partner a lot especially if the 7th lord Saturn is placed along with Ketu in the 5th house and if Venus is also placed in the 5th house then there could also be sexual relationships with multiple partners. This is because Ketu is a planet of change or transformation as Ketu is the natural significator of the 8th house of transformation and turbulence.

Also, the 7th lord Saturn represents the spouse or boyfriend or girlfriend and here Saturn Ketu conjunction is happening in the 5th house of love and romance. Ketu is a planet of dislike and so due to disliking the changes happen. Since Scorpio, ruling the 5th house is a hidden sign so there could be hidden relationships that could be unknown to the world.

2) If Ketu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Scorpio but if the 5th lord Mars is placed in the 4th house in the sign of Libra then such natives could face a lot of turbulence in the property or real estate business. They may buy and sell a property a lot as Ketu is a planet of change and 5th house is the house of speculation (or gambling) and here 5th lord is placed in the 4th house of land, property, and vehicles.

There could also be a lot of turbulence when it comes to relationships with the mother with this placement as Mars is natural malefic for the 4th house and the sign of Mars, Scorpio, is afflicted here by the placement of Ketu as Ketu is considered as the natural malefic. If Mars is Darakarka (DK) then the relationship with the spouse could also suffer.

This placement of Mars in the 4th house could also give an accident if transits and dasas are indicating that but only if Mars is placed in a malefic Nakshatra and if the ascendant lord is badly placed or debilitated. People who do vehicle stunts during a film shooting or sports race car drivers often have this placement as Mars is placed in the 4th house which is the house of vehicles and Ketu and Scorpio both are the sign and planet of turbulence (sudden ups and downs). Also, the 5th house is the house of recreational activities and when you do vehicle stunts then this is also a recreational activity.

Ketu is as malefic as the 8th house as Ketu is the natural significator of the 8th house and Ketu when placed in the sign of Scorpio is really not good especially if Mars is either debilitated or placed in a malefic Nakshatra or afflicted by malefics as then you may certainly face some kind of injury or surgery in life as Scorpio is also a sign of surgeries and malefic & turbulent Ketu is placed in the sign of Scorpio which is also a sign of death and re-birth.

3) If Ketu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Scorpio but if the 5th lord Mars is placed in the 3rd house in the sign of Virgo then this is really the placement for people who are into the repairing of electronics and electrical items used in communication such as the repairing of TV, phone, radio, internet connection, laptops and computers, telephone lines, and other communication systems. This is because Virgo is a sign of repairing and 3rd house is the house of working with hands.

When you repair things then you change the parts and Ketu is a planet of change and Ketu is placed in the 5th house which is also the house of the limelight, lights, and lighting, heat, etc as Sun rules the 5th house in the default zodiac and Sun is the giver of light and heat. People working in the field of IT (information technology) may also have this placement as everything is communication in IT. Also, Ketu is placed in the sign of Scorpio and Scorpio is a sign of going to the roots and when you repair electronic items then you go to the roots of those items which is nothing but engineering.

Sportsmen and athletes can also be seen from this placement especially those who are using their skills of hands to play as 3rd house represents our hands and shoulders. But this placement could also get you in some kind of injury as Virgo is a sign of difficulties and injuries and Mars is a very aggressive and energetic planet.

4) If Ketu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Scorpio but if the 5th lord Mars is placed in the 2nd house in the sign of Leo then people who play with money such as gambling, stock trading, sports betting, and currency trading are generally seen from this placement as Leo is a sign of recreational activities, and gambling & speculation is also nothing but a recreational activity as here you play with money or wealth and playing is seen from the sign of Leo. In stock trading or currency trading there is a lot of turbulence as you never know where the price will go and Scorpio is also a sign of turbulence and the same is the case for gambling and so all these professions make sense for this placement.

5) If Ketu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Scorpio but if the 5th lord Mars is placed in the 1st house in the sign of Cancer then with this placement the native could face problems in having kids especially if Mars is placed in a Nakshatra which is malefic for a Cancer ascendant but the native should be a woman. This is because Ketu represents the child in a mother’s womb and the 5th house represents the stomach.

If Saturn has an aspect on the 5th house there could be problems or complications in pregnancy as Saturn’s aspect is highly malefic to the 5th house. Mars is considered debilitated in the sign of Cancer but it is not always so. The problem could be more severe if the ascendant lord Moon is also placed in the 5th house in the sign of Scorpio as Moon gets debilitated in the sign of Scorpio and Moon represents the physical self for a Cancer ascendant. But, with this placement, gynecologist doctors (or surgical doctors, in general) can also be seen as they handle the pregnancy and Ketu represents the child in a mother’s womb and Cancer is a sign of nurturing.

6) If Ketu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Scorpio but if the 5th lord Mars is placed in the 12th house in the sign of Gemini then again engineers and IT professionals are seen from this placement especially marine electronics and telecommunication engineers as 12th house represents the marine or sea world. People who are into submarine optical cable engineering can also be seen from this placement. They may work with submarine cables to make communication possible via cable internet.

People like civil engineers and railway engineers may also have this placement as Gemini is a sign of travel and traveling is not possible without roads, bridges, and railways. But, again, sportsmen and athletes, can also be seen from this placement. But this could also be the placement for playing musical instruments as Gemini is a sign of communication and sound and sound is the major theme in music. People who are into the repairing of musical systems and sound systems can also be seen from this placement.

7) If Ketu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Scorpio but if the 5th lord Mars is placed in the 11th house in the sign of Taurus then website designers, coders or programmers, app developers, software developers, and computer engineers are generally seen from this placement. Hackers and information security specialists can also be seen from this placement including people who are into web hosting and server management and management of online communication systems. Basically, this placement is good for people who are working in the field of information technology which IT also includes machine learning, artificial intelligence, robotics, automation, etc. As said before, Ketu is a planet of going to the roots and when you do coding you go to the roots.

8) If Ketu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Scorpio but if the 5th lord Mars is placed in the 10th house in the sign of Aries then people studying physics and involved in motion and fuel engineering such as automobile engineering are generally seen from this placement as Aries is a sign that represents the fuel energy and motion and motion is also generated by the combustion of fuel only. So people working with internal and external combustion engines in the field of automobile engineering are generally seen from this placement.

People like industrial engineers and petrochemical engineers may also have this placement as Ketu is placed in the sign of Scorpio which is a sign of chemicals and risky products such as propellants, explosives, and nuclear reactors. Aerospace engineers may also have this placement as aerospace engineering is also about motion and combustion of fuel.

9) If Ketu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Scorpio but if the 5th lord Mars is placed in the 9th house in the sign of Pisces then people who are into healing through spiritual practices such as occult science specialists, astrologers, tarot card readers, herbal healers, ayurvedic doctors, holistic health practitioners, martial arts instructors, yoga and meditation teachers, psychic readers, hypnotherapists, reiki practitioners, chiropractors, energy and sounder therapists, crystal ball healers, chakra healers, paranormal investigators, artists, and sculptors, etc are generally seen from this placement.

This is because Pisces is a spiritual sign and all these spiritual practices and Pisces is also a sign of healing. Also, Ketu is a planet of going to the roots and Scorpio is also a sign of occult. Ketu and Scorpio both are quite related to occult science. People like swimmers and sea or ocean explorers can also be seen from this placement as Pisces is a sign that represents the sea. Marine engineers may also have this placement.

10) If Ketu is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Scorpio but if the 5th lord Mars is placed in the 8th house in the sign of Aquarius then computer network engineers and satellite engineers are generally seen from this placement. This is because 8th house is the house of going to the roots and Aquarius is a sign of networking. People into occult science, however, may also have this placement.
