MARS IN 5th HOUSE
If Mars is in the fifth house the native will be poor, will have few or no children, will be immoral and in the bad books of the Government. He will suffer from cuts or wounds in his sixth year. He will be a liar but very shrewd. If Mars is in his own sign (Aries or Scorpio) or in his own sign of exaltation, the native will have a good number of children and will feed others. He will hold Governmental positions of high status but will have troubles from enemies. If Mars is in conjunction with a malefic or is in the house of a malefic there will be loss of children. He will suffer from mental disorders and other such diseases. If he is associated with the lord of the 8th house, he will be sinful but brave. He may have no children of his own and may have to adopt one.
Comments-Fifth house is inter alia a significator of children, intellect, morals, Bhagya and prosperity (being ninth to ninth house). All these significations will be destroyed if malefic Mars. is posited in the fifth house and all the evil effects described in the above Sutras will be realised by the native. Very beneficial results have been predicted if Mars is in his own sign Aries or Scorpio or in Capricorn his sign of exaltation. When Mars is in Aries, the ascendant will be Sagittarius and Mars will be in the fifth as lord of the fifth and twelfth. Being in the fifth in his own sign the evil effects of the lord-ship of the 12th will not be felt and only good results will follow. If Mars is in Scorpio, the ascendant will be Cancer for which Mars is a yoga karaka planet, and Mars will be in the fifth as lord of the fifth and the 10th. By being in this position he will substantially improve the significations of both the houses. He will be blessed with a good number of children and attain a high position in Government. He will also be very intelligent. While in Aries or Scorpio, Mars will aspect the 11th house (house of gains) and the native will amass wealth. We do not agree that Mars in his sign of exaltation will be good for the native because he will be in the fifth as lord of two bad houses, the 3rd and 8th (the ascendant being Virgo). However, in the case of Gemini and Capricorn ascendants, Mars will be lord of the 11th and will aspect his own house from the fifth. This situation will be good for finances. In the case of Pisces ascendant Mars Will be lord of the 2nd and 9th houses and will also be quite beneficial for finances.
Brihat Jataka-Same effects as for the Sun in the fifth house (see part II, chapter I)
Phaldeepika-The native will be without children, will not be intelligent, and will be a backbiter.
Saravali-The native will be without children, wealth and happiness. He will be of unstable mind, a backbiter, wicked, worried and mean.
Chamatkar Chintamani-The native will suffer from hyperacidity and will be sinfully inclined. The native’s wife will suffer from abortions.
Note-There is a consensus amongst all the above authorities that Mars destroys all the good significations of the fifth house, but Mars in the fifth is not always bad. As mentioned in Sutras-39 and 40 of Bhrigu Sutras, if Mars is in his own sign he does immense good to the native. Our comments on these Sutras will also show that Mars is capable of giving good effects also in the fifth house.
