Last updated on April 6th, 2020 at 10:27 am

Sun in the 5th House connects with the energies of its own zodiac sign Leo – named as Swabhava (own house) as per sidereal Vedic astrology.

Also, spiritual pursuits, devotion, and disciples. Family relations – children, and paternal grandfather. In terms of anatomy, the considered house signifies stomach area – liver, stomach, gall bladder, spleen, pancreas, and colon.

In terms of Bhavat-Bhavam (from house to house) technique, the 5th house from the Fifth House itself is the 9th house of luck, prosperity, and fortune. This special connection between these two houses symbolizes massively increased levels of abundance and prosperity with the fruits from pious deeds of current and past lives. With that being said, the condition of Sun in the considered house gives a clue whether a person is inclined towards building good karmic storage and by doing that ensure the prosperity and abundance of the future.

The blend of the significations of Sun and the fifth house promote beneficial results as the energies of Sun resonate comfortably in the considered house.

Results of Sun in 5th House

Having Sun in the 5th house means being born during night time when Sun does not shine in the sky (during birth), which indicates minor loss of strength of the effects provided by Sun and it’s additional significations according to the birth chart.

The positive placement of the fifth house lord plays a major role in amplifying the positive effects of Sun in the 5th house.


The positioning of fiery planet Sun in the 5th house indicates an arrogant personality with hot-tempered and straightforward attitude. Whether these abovementioned traits will be favorable or not is determined by the condition of Sun in 5th house by placement and other influences in the birth chart.

Accordingly, if Sun is well-placed in the considered house it indicates a positive and well-developed ego without complexes which also translates to having high amounts of will-power, ambition, and self-confidence. Besides self-centeredness, it also promotes attaining a kingly or authoritative position.

Additionally, Sun in the 5h house, which is represented by its own sign Leo indicates extremely charming, charismatic, and bright personality who loves being in the center of attention.


Sun carries the significance of head and 5th house intelligence. Hence, Sun in the fifth house heightens the intelligence levels to a great extent.

The considered combination blesses with possessing brilliant wisdom and effective utilization of the same in various activities (especially in politics) which promotes becoming successful.

In addition to that, the great level of intelligence is highly helpful in creative endeavors.


Sun in the 5th house indicates high levels of creativity which is highly supportive in creative endeavors. People with this combination have natural urge to express their wisdom and creative skills in their creations of any form.

The area where the creative energies are directed depends on the other influences in the birth chart. For instance, the influence of Venus over the Sun (by disposition, aspect or conjunction) indicates great talent in poetry, arts, and architecture.

Mercury, at the same time, adds networking, marketing, writing, and entrepreneurial skills when connected to Sun in the 5th by any association in the birth chart.


As the 5th house signifies progeny, the placement of Sun in the considered house plays a major role in the creation and delivery of children. It also determines the prosperity of children.

By default, this placement of the Sun indicates fewer children because of being dimmed during birth. However, these few children will most likely become brilliant and wise. Another indication states that children will be prosperous and wise but always away from a native for any reason, be it traveling, studying abroad and so forth.

Alternatively, beneficial influences by other planets on the Sun in the birth chart modify the results in a positive way. If Sun is in its favorable sign and/or aspected by the natural beneficial planet (Moon, Jupiter, or Venus) there will be more children with good health. Furthermore, if the dispositor or 5th house lord is strong and well-placed, it indicates prosperous children who will attain a high authoritative position in life.


The 5th house is connected to the 9th house by Bhavat Bhavam (from house to house technique). Namely, 5th house is five places from the 9th house, and the latter is nine places away from the 5th house. Hence, the 5th house also becomes a secondary provider of luck and prosperity in addition to the 9th house (luck & prosperity).

Now because Sun in the 5th loses some of its strength because of being dimmed during the birth time of the native, it indicates an average amount of wealth by default. The level of luck and prosperity also depends on the dignity of the Sun (its placement in a sign) and its dispositor.

If Sun is the functional beneficial planet in the birth chart, it promotes a good amount of luck and prosperity and vice versa. It equally indicates the amount of wealth of the natives.

Accordingly, if Sun and its dispositor are strong and well-placed, the considered combination is capable of blessing with ample wealth.

Gambling & Speculation

The placement of the Sun in the house which is represented by its own sign Leo indicates great speculative abilities. This combination gives greater interest in stock markets, casinos, and other games of chance.

The probability of success, however, is determined by overall influence and support from other planets upon Sun in this house in the birth chart. There can be interest and wisdom, but luck is what determines the final outcomes of the initial effort.

Classical Interpretation

Bhrigu Sutras

According to Bhrigu Sutram, the placement of Sun in the fifth house indicates a lot of hassle and struggle in order to attain and maintain wealth.

Individuals with this combination are blessed to be smart, wise, and intelligent with brilliant mentality. They are also blessed with a strong body. Such natives are likely to have fewer amount of progeny.

However, if the Sun is strong and in good dignity in the given house, it indicates that the native is righteous, honorable, fortunate, and prosperous despite the struggle. It also provides blessings and prosperity to children of the native with this combination.

If the 5th house ruler happens to be well placed, the children of the native will be also brilliantly wise and intelligent. There will be happiness from children as well.

Alternatively, the association of Sun with Rahu, Ketu, or natural malefic planet indicates troubles to children. However, if this set of planets are aspected by a natural benefic planet, children are safe and the negative results will not manifest.
