If Rahu is 12th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 5th 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 5th house will transform Rahu as Moon as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. At the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Cancer in 5th house shows a highly emotional person towards children. For them, their child is everything. They will do anything to make their child happy. They are emotional otherwise too and may react on polarities of emotions, i.e. either too happy or too sad. 5th house and Rahu both represent creativity. They must pursue a creative career. It shows a great career in Cinema, Arts and other such creative pursuits. Rahu in 5th house is also an indication towards worldly and life long fame. So, all the reasons to pursue a creative side of life.
Likewise, If Ketu is 12th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 5th 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 Creativity suffers. These people are isolated from being creative and attaining higher education, means they themselves won't be motivated to study any further after basic education. Likewise, they are not too much into sports, not even as a kid. Love relations would always end in painful breakups or cheating, so much so that later they won't even be inclined to any love relation. Education related with Occult, Mysticism and Spirituality will interest them and they will research about it. Meditation is going to heal them. Ketu in Aries means person is unaware of his own individuality & uniqueness and meditation helps him in achieving that.
