More on the 5th house

As a thumb rule in Vedic astrology, the 6th house lord brings definitely some obstacles to the 5th house as being one of the malefic houses which is called Dusthana Bhava for the same reason.

Besides that this positioning of the 6th house ruler is considered one of the most difficult because of forming the 12th disposition. In other words, the 6th ruler in the 5th house is in 12th from its own sign/house.

According to astrology, the 12th house signifies expenses, losses, isolation, distress, etc. In this context, it signifies the expense of 6th matters on the topics of the 5th house.

On a positive hand, the 12th signifies expenses on long term investments, the manifestation of dreams, spiritual enlightenment, etc.

Whether the outcomes will be positive or negative, depends on the condition and favorability of the 6th ruler in the 5th house sign and nakshatra wise.

Results of 6th House Lord in 5th House

Fluctuating Finances

The classical source of Vedic astrology, BPHS, states that natives with this combination have variable success regarding the financial condition.

The given condition is caused by various astrological indications. To begin with, the 6th denotes obstacles and all kinds of hurdles that cause blockages while the 5th is one of the wealth-generating houses called Lakshmi Bhava for the same reason.

Accordingly, one of the reasons causing fluctuation in wealth is that the 6th house lord is causing challenges, obstacles, and various mistakes that make the financial condition highly unpredictable and changeable.

On the contrary, this condition can be also a great stepping stone towards success. Let us examine why is that so. Namely, the 6th astrological domain also belongs to the triangle of wealth or Artha Trikona which makes it one of the important houses that are helpful in accumulating monetary gains.

However, the 6th house lord should be auspiciously positioned in the 5th house in order to produce positive outcomes out of this difficult position and create obstacles that are actually helpful to the native.

If that is the case, then this combination enables the native to earn a considerable amount of monetary gains as two houses that carry the importance of wealth generation get connected harmoniously.

Gains From Expenses

As the given house lord is in 12th from its own sign, it indicates loss of wealth in order to gain wealth. It is possible when the combination is auspiciously formed.

To be specific, the 12th signifies expenses on long term investments while the 5th house signifies speculation and stock markets. Hence, the positioning of Artha Trikona ruler, the 6th in the 5th house, it indicates being creative regarding investments.

In addition to that, the native has this inherent intelligence that helps to make wise investment decisions that is helpful in the long run for profits.

With that being said, as the 6th lord of obstacles and challenges is involved, the gains are never easy with this combination and always include a great amount of discipline and persistence in order to prosper.

The 6th also denotes banks and loans which in this context means that debts are helpful in order to make huge expenses on long term investment opportunities that ensure wealth gains in long run with the help of a well-paced 6th house lord.

Causes Of Losses

However, as the 12th house disposition is involved, impulsive and compulsive gambling should be strictly avoided in order to protect from heavy losses.

With that being said, things are getting serious regarding this matter if the 6th ruler is damaged or ill-positioned in the 5th house. If that is the case, then it indicates creating a lot of financial troubles to oneself out of impulsive and compulsive gambling which causes a lot of financial hurdles, obstacles, and losses.

When seen from the other angle, this effect is caused by the inability to exploit the wisdom efficiently and correctly which indicates bad investment decisions that cause losses.

In addition to that, this negative situation of this combination causes taking loans out of irrational thinking and bad decisions impulsively. That in turn, causes lots of debts which are extremely difficult to repay in the long run.

In addition to that, these accumulated obstacles cause lots of obstacles in the path to financial security and freedom.

Losses Through Enemies

Alternatively, if the 6th ruler is inauspiciously positioned in the 5th house, it indicates negative outcomes of this combination regarding the financial situation.

That is, in such a situation, the 6th lord causes a lot of obstacles, hurdles, disputes, and litigation that are caused by many enemies.

As the 5th house of authority is involved, the enemies can be with strong and powerful positions from authoritative organizations that cause losses through litigation to the native with this negatively formed combination.


However, there is also a reason for such enemies. Namely, such powerful and authoritative enemies are caused by the bad behavior and deeds of the native.

The 5th house belongs to the triangle of righteousness or Dharma Trikona while the 6th belongs to the triangle of wealth.

Accordingly, when these houses are negatively combined, that is, the 6th lord is fallen or debilitated in the 5th house, it indicates a lack of righteousness, ethics, and morals while trying to make monetary gains.

To be specific, it indicates the accumulation of monetary gains through illegal activities, aggression, fighting, or causing inexplainable or intentional harm either to the environment or human beings in order to gain wealth as a shortcut.

BPHS also states that such natives tend to be very selfish, especially regarding fame and wealth.

This, in turn, causes the accumulation of negative karma which will manifest in the form of losses through various officials.

All of this which is mentioned above also cause damage to the name and fame to the native, as the 5th house carries such significations, which become damaged.

Past Life

As the 5th house signifies past life deeds, the positioning of the 6th lord in this house gives a clue about the nature of deeds and outcomes in the current life.

If the combination is well-formed, it indicates that the wealth was obtained by righteous and moral service in past life which ensures good outcomes out of hurdles and struggles in the current life.

It also indicates remaining righteous which is the basis of positive evolvement and upward trend of success.

If the combination is fallen or debilitated, it indicates bad deeds regarding the significances of the houses which also cause difficult situations in the current life.

It also indicates being involved in frauds or causing damage to other wealth in past life in any other way which indicates a lot of struggles regarding finances in current life which manifests in the form of authoritative enemies that cause losses through litigation.

Bad deeds in the past also indicate financial struggles and blockages due to debts.

Source Of Wealth

On the contrary, if this combination of 6th ruler is well-positioned in the 5th house, it indicates being moral, ethical, and righteous while accumulating wealth.

Righteousness is completely supported by the almighty God, which ensures success and prosperity in the long run as this combination suggests.

It also indicates having intelligence, wisdom, and creativity which is helpful and boosts monetary gains a lot.

As the 6th house is involved, it also indicates gains through various types of service, that involve difficult or hard environments, such as emergency service, rescue, military service, police/defense service, etc.

If not these, then there are definitely difficult conditions in the field of activity that offer a lot of obstacles to overcome in order to prosper and gain finances.

However, these obstacles become as beneficial stepping stones towards evolvement and success, if the energies of the 6th house are correctly and efficiently directed in the 5th house, or in other words, the 6th lord is well placed in the 5th house.

Specifically, in the positive formation of this combination, each obstacle becomes a strong trainer of the native and motivates to become more skilled, intelligent, and self-disciplined which ensures progressing after overcoming each obstacle and achieving prosperity in the long run.

Enmity With Children

BPHS also mentions that people with this combination experience enmity and disputes with their children.

This effect is caused by the fact that the 5th house also signifies children of the native and the influence of the 6th house of quarrels cause a lot of disputes between the native and their children.

If the considered combination is well-formed it indicates that these quarrels can be successfully resolved and improve the relationship between the natives and children over time.

On the contrary, if the combination is ill-formed it indicates permanent enmity with one’s progeny which is extremely difficult to solve. It also causes lots of detachment and isolation from children as the 12th disposition of the 6th lord in the 5th house suggests. The detachment is caused due to frequent quarrels.

Deception In Romance

As the 6th house signifies enmity and opposition, the given house lord in the 5th house of romance signifies cheating in love which in turn causes enmity between the couple.

If the combination is well-formed, then the native is able to resolve the trust issues caused by opposition and betrayal with their partner.

Alternatively, if the combination is ill-placed, it indicates that there remains enmity between the couple as the deception is severe that can not be forgiven and damages to the matters of the heart can not be restored. Hence, causing detachment with the love partner. Depending on the overall chart, the native either breaks up or continues living un unhappy union.

Quarrelsome & Provocative Expression

The 5th house also rules the style of expression of the feelings. Accordingly, the 6th house ruler in the considered house indicates being very critical and quarrelsome when expressing the feelings.

If the combination is well-formed, although still being quarrelsome, the native is also very kind and righteous. In such a case, the native does not express to provoke and uses their harsh way of expression in accordance with righteousness, ethics, and morals. That is to say, even though they express their feelings in a sharp and hurtful way, they do it in order to teach others how to behave righteously.

If the combination is ill-formed, it causes being very provocative with the style of expression. It indicates using intelligence in the wrong ways to initiate fights and troubles.

If Ari’s Lord is in Putr Bhava, the native will have fluctuating finances. He will incur enmity with his sons and friends. He will be happy, selfish and kind
