Debilitated Saturn in Fifth House
When debilitated Saturn is placed in the fifth house in a horoscope, Sagittarius rises in the ascendant. Debilitated Saturn is benefic in the fifth house in many cases though it may turn malefic in some cases. This may happen when Saturn is afflicted by malefic planets, such as through conjunction and/or aspects. As the number of malefic planets and the strengths of such planets increase, Saturn may become more malefic.
Since Saturn is weak due to debilitation, it may become easy for malefic planets to add negativity to Saturn. If debilitated Saturn is afflicted by one or more than one malefic planet in the fifth house, it may turn significantly or highly malefic. Apart from that, the overall theme of horoscope having such debilitated Saturn can also turn it malefic in some cases, when such theme is malefic. The concept of benefic planets turning malefic due to influences of malefic planets has been explained in Manglik Dosh section of the book ‘Match Making and Manglik Dosh (Revised Edition)’.

Benefic Jupiter is placed in the tenth house in Virgo with benefic exalted Mercury, Venus is placed in the ninth house in Leo with Ketu, benefic Rahu is placed in the third house in Aquarius and Moon is placed in the fourth house in Pisces.

If Mars is placed in the first house in Sagittarius and benefic Sun is placed in the tenth house in Virgo with Jupiter and Mercury, the equation may become better.
