5th house is the house of progeny and the future of the native. How shall the native fare in the world can be known from his 5th house. About the welfare of children also we have to judge the same house. So long as Jupiter is in good position there shall be peace and prosperity. This means that Jupiter should be benefic by his placement and position in the annual progressed charts. If houses 6 and/or 10 are afflicted the articles connected with the planet inimical to the planet in 5th house should be kept under ground in the house. If 8th house is also afflicted the article should be kept under ground in the ancestral house. In case 5th house is occupied by Rahu and Saturn, Venus in 11th house, Ketu in 8th and Jupiter in the 10th house there shall be illness initially to the partner and thereafter the son is likely to suffer. For this malady loaves of bread or flour of the weight of the son should be given to dogs for 25 to 48 days. If house 4 or 4 or 9 is afflicted the planet in house 5 shall give bad results. The planets in houses 6 or 10 will also give bad results without any regard whether they are friends or foes of the planet in 5th house. Rahu and Ketu will influence results according to their placement in the chart.
Sun is the lord of this house. Jupiter is the Karaka graha or the natural significator planet for the house.
