Exalted Saturn in Fifth House
When exalted Saturn is placed in the fifth house in a horoscope, Gemini rises in the ascendant. Exalted 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.

Apart from that, the overall theme of horoscope having such exalted Saturn can also turn it malefic in some cases, when such theme is highly 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)’.
