Venus in the Fifth House
Sutras 29-33-The native will be full of wisdom and will be a minister or commander of the army. He will have the good luck of seeing his grandmother alive, will have a young wife and also children. He will be respected and honored by Government, will be a clever minister and his wife will be full of happiness. If Venus is associated with a malefic or is in the house of a malefic or in his sign of debilitating, the native will be dull-headed and will remain in want of children. If Venus is associated with a benefic or is in his own sign or in his sign of exaltation the native will be very wise, will be versed in worldly affairs and will have children and conveyances.
Comments-According to above Sutras, Venus will give very beneficial effects if in the 5th house in accordance with the significations of that house. For Virgo, Capricorn and Aquarius ascendants, Venus will prove still more beneficial as Venus is a yogakarka for these ascendants and fifth is a very auspicious house for any planet to be placed in. Our view is that Venus being a female planet will give more daughters than sons.
Brihat Jataka- The person concerned will be intelligent.
Phaldeepika-The native will be wealthy and honored like a king. He will have happiness from children and will be very intelligent.
Saravali-The native will be happy, will have children and friends. He will be fond of enjoyments and very wealthy. He will be a minister or a judge.
” Chamatkar Chintamani-The native will have children but will not get happiness from them. He will not be courageous but will get success in his undertakings by hard work. He will be educated but will be incapable of being a poet.
Note-All the above authorities except Chamatkar Chintamani are agreed that Venus in the fifth gives good results. Brihat Jatak as usual does not cover all the significations of the house and it is difficult to understand the logic behind the views of Chamatkar Chintamani
