Encyclopedia of Vedic Astrology: Wealth & Prosperity: Analysing the Fifth House, Chapter VI, Part - 1

Dr. Shanker Adawal

The fifth house represents the earning of wealth and prosperity by means of knowledge, skills and education. It represents wealth earned through brain work, acumenship, skills like that of professionals like engineer, doctor, lawyer, astrologer etc. The wealth earned through speculation or gambling or trading in the stocks and share markets, or stock broking is also represented by this house. This house also belongs to the wealth trine. Therefore it is necessary that the fifth house be properly analysed to ascertain the prospects of wealth and prosperity of any individual.

An unblemished fifth house, its lord and its significator, also aspected or occupied by the benefic planets indicate immense earning of wealth and prosperity in the life of the native. The significator of the fifth house in regards to wealth and prosperity is Jupiter.

Whereas if the fifth house or its lord or its significator becomes afflicted or aspected or occupied by the malefic planets then the native fails to earn wealth and prosperity in life inspite of all hard work. It becomes difficult for the native to earn wealth or earn sufficiently.

The placement of the fifth lord in auspicious houses like Kendra houses (1st 4th 7th & 10th) and the Trikona houses (1st 5th & 9th), its association with the Yogkaraka planet and other benefic planets and most importantly its placement in the constellation of a benefic planet are important considerations to be sought for while judging the fifth house as these factors lend strength to the fifth lord.

Whereas the placement of the fifth lord in the 6th 8th or 12th house, or associated with the malefic planets and debilitated planets and its placement in the constellation of any malefic planet weakens its strength.

Placement of benefic planets in the fifth house and exchanges of signs between the lords of the fifth house with the lords of 1st 2nd 9th 10th or 11th houses ensures wealth and prosperity to the native.
