Fifth House Lord in Tenth House
5th house lord sitting in 10th house.
First of all, let's see what 10th house represent -
10th house represents Government, Father, Authority, Fame etc. Here, Authority should not be understood in literal sense, like someone got a Government job or became a Manager or CEO of a Firm. Here Authority means doing any work with complete perfection and your opinion matters when comes to making any decision related to that work, so even a good Hacker can be a person of authority as he is master of that particular work.
One thing to remember here is that 10th house is one of Upachaya Houses, i.e. House # 3, 6, 10 & 11. Upachaya Houses improve with time. It means any planet in these houses improves in results with age and real good result is seen from a person's 30s. Also, all the malefic planets provide very good results in Upachaya Houses but results may be seen in 30s.
What does it mean to have 5th house lord in 10th house?

Now, results may be different due to aspect, conjunctions of other planets or the planet being Retrograde or Combust. Moreover, now we also need to check the strength of 10th house lord as 5th house lord is going in 10th house. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
How different planets will behave differently as 5th Lord in 10th house?
Suppose it is a Aries Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 5th house with Leo sign and sits in the 10th house in Capricorn. This person uses his education to reach a position of authority. As 5th lord is going 6 places away from 5th house, it shows through their education they deal with lots of conflicts & obstacles and reach a position of authority. It shows they are either in Law field or Govt. It also shows person's father is also in similar field and there are ego battles between them.
So it is Pisces Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 5th house with Cancer sign and sits in 10th house in Sagittarius.It shows that this person is more interesting in higher studies, education of philosophies and then nourishing and taking care of others with the same knowledge. So, often these people would be seen in the career as Teacher or Professor, where they will get authority. Their mother would be in an authoritative position. Relation with mother will be based on high morale and religious values.
Mars can be 5th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Sagittarius Ascendant -
So if it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Mars rules 5th & 12th house and sits in 10th house in Virgo. This shows that this person deals with lots of conflicts and obstacles in his work through his education, which ultimately provides him authority. So, it shows a Lawyer, Medical or a Sports Person. But whichever field he chooses, he has to go through lots of obstacles to eventually get any authority. Relationship with brother may suffer and their may be arguments and disputes with children, especially son.
Cancer Ascendant -
Now if it is Cancer Ascendant, Mars rules 5th & 10th house and sits in 10th house in Aries sign. This time Mars is in its own sign, so person will have lesser obstacles and conflicts to deal with in order to reach authoritative position and also that he will be able to over power those obstacles easily. It again shows career in same fields as above but success achievement is little less troublesome here. Relations with children and brothers are much better here.
Mercury also can be 5th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Aquarius Ascendant -

Mercury itself is karaka of Astrology. So, a good authoritative Astrologer is in making here. Else they can be in any field related with Counseling and Communication and their they would get their authority.
Taurus Ascendant -

Gemini Ascendant -

All the results written above will be increased manifold here. This will give real fame in a creative career. At the same time, as Venus and Pisces both represents devotion, it can give career in field of spirituality, service and devotion. Best position among all.

Leo Ascendant -
If it is Leo Ascendant, Jupiter rules 5th & 8th house and sits in 10th house in Taurus Sign. This position will expand the person's fame and wealth as Jupiter expands things related to the house it sits. So, in 10th house it will exapand fame, status and authority & in Taurus it is going to expand the wealth. It shows a Career in Counselling, Advising people with their Education, Experience and Wisdom. These people can become Career Counselors to others. They can also work as Wealth Planners or Finance Managers. It shows that a girl finds his husband at work place. It also shows a very rich father.
Scorpio Ascendant -
If it is Scorpio Ascendant, Jupiter rules 2nd & 5th house and sits in 10th house in Leo. Jupiter in Leo is considered as good as Jupiter in Cancer. These people have Wisdom of Jupiter and Courage of Leo to achieve anything in work. They can be an authority figure in Govt or in an field of creativity. They can also work as Spiritual Counselors, but they will be one who energizes the counseled and don't focus on consoling him. Good position for gains from Govt.
Saturn also can be 5th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 5th house lord, Saturn in 10th house (for Virgo/Libra Ascendants respectively) shows that person had a distant relation with father, for various reasons. It shows someone reaching authoritative position in life only after sheer hard work and dedication. Nothing comes easy in life where Saturn is placed. It shows person had real struggle with any authority figure in life. Even a watchman will show him attitude when time is wrong. This shows someone making a career in Law or Govt Administration. They can also become a Judge but all good things related with Saturn comes when they are in their 30s. Before that it is only a struggle to find out why everyone around them has so much attitude over their authority?
If Rahu is 5th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 10th house in Cancer then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Cancer in 10th house will transform Rahu as Moon as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Cancer in 10th house shows that person is highly emotional by nature and gets involved in a work where they have to emotionally involve with people, nourish and take care of them. Hence, they are mostly seen in career related with nursing and social service. But here is the twist. Rahu remains the malefic demonic energy which spreads illusion. So, these people may be those who just show to society how much they care, nourish and serve poor and ill people and may have a different agenda running behind the scenes.
Likewise, If Ketu is 5th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 10th house in Aries then 1st of all we need to make sure of Mars' position as it is the main ruler. As Ketu isolates/separates a person from the things related to the house Ketu is sitting, here it separates person from working under any authority. Relationship with Father is not to talk about. Either they are physically separated from Father or they never find that mental connect with him. It is better for these people to either work for themselves and be their own authority or follow a spiritual career. They are the last people who are looking for any authority over any other. At the same time, Ketu in Aries shows this person suffers from inferiority complex as Aries represents individuality and Ketu separates him from himself. In early part of life, they feel that everyone around them is more blessed than what they are.
