So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 5th house Lord in 12th house.

Sun - Suppose it is a Aries Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 5th house with Leo sign and sits in the 12th house in Pisces. This shows a person who gets his self-confidence and develops his personality when he goes to foreign lands and stays in spiritual company. They like to take education on spiritual subjects. their creativity comes to fore when they are left alone in isolation. At the same time, this may also show a foreign diplomat, i.e. a person working as ambassador in foreign countries. It also shows that father may be in foreign lands or frequently travelling there.

Moon - So it is Pisces Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 5th house with Cancer sign and sits in 12th house in Aquarius. This shows a person whose mind is very much oriented towards working with large organisations in foreign lands. At the same time, they have a very scientific bent of mind. Mind will be highly imaginative and they would love to be alone. It also shows that mother was also in some big organisation or may be travelling a lot that's why native doesn't find proper nourishment from her.

Mars - 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 12th house in Scorpio. This shows a person who is interested in living in isolation and get involved in occult practice or occult education. At the same time, they may be inclined towards education of chemicals etc. It also shows a sportsperson travelling to foreign lands or a soldier going into foreign country on his service and living in chaotic situations which Scorpio represents.

Cancer Ascendant - Now if it is Cancer Ascendant, Mars rules 5th & 10th house and sits in 12th house in Gemini sign. Here Mars is in enemy sign, hence Mars dignity has reduced. So, this will not be as great a position as the earlier one. It will show someone who puts his efforts in foreign lands in import-export or any other type of business. They will have a direct speech and wont mince the words. They or their children may also travel abroad for education but the results may not be satisfactory. It also shows someone who has a very aggressive communication style and may get angry easily.

Mercury - Mercury also can be 5th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.

Aquarius Ascendant - If it is Aquarius Ascendant, Mercury rules 5th & 8th houses and sits in 12th house in Capricorn. This person is very imaginative and uses the same imagination in his communications, i.e. this person can be a very good author or poet which gives him authority. This person may also work with Govt in Foreign Lands as Spokesperson. This also shows someone working as an authoritative Teacher or Counselor in Govt Institutions in Foreign Lands.

Taurus Ascendant - If it is Taurus Ascendant, then Mercury rules 5th & 2nd house and sits in 12th house in Aries. Again there is an exchange of energy between Mercury and Mars, so although we will see similar results and similar careers for this position, it shows a very direct communicator means even as author or counselor they will be very direct about what they want to say. They will never speak any word just to please you. They could be very analytical and critical about their education, counselling, teaching or writing, means their communication.

Venus - Venus also can be 5th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.

Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, Venus rules 5th & 10th house and sits in 12th house in Sagittarius sign. This shows a person who finds happiness while travelling to religious or spiritual places. They love reading ancient texts from different religions. Their idea of perfect date may be to go to a Buddhist Monastery. They will find their love interest and guy may find his wife in a spiritual place or foreign lands. They may work as teacher or professor of philosophy, religion or any other higher education in foreign lands. Read all the great scriptures to impress them, money and status wont work.

Gemini Ascendant - If it is Gemini Ascendant, Venus rules 5th & 12th house and sits in 12th house in Taurus. This is even better situation as Venus is in own sign Taurus. These people will go to foreign lands for education or any creative pursuits and earns a lot of wealth and assets there. It also shows a spouse or love interests in foreign lands. If earlier position of Venus was more religious or spiritual, this one is all about materialistic life and all the luxuries of world.

Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 5th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.

Leo Ascendant - If it is Leo Ascendant, Jupiter rules 5th & 8th house and sits in 12th house in Cancer Sign, where it is exalted. This is best position. A highly-highly spiritual person. You can see a Spiritual Guru, a Mystic, an Astrologer and what not here. Huge wealth is coming from foreign lands. A lady may find husband in foreign lands. Their children may go to foreign lands. Here children may be so spiritual that they may make parents aware of spirituality. Best position for spiritual growth. Else they can do very well in finance related jobs in foreign lands.

Scorpio Ascendant - If it is Scorpio Ascendant, Jupiter rules 2nd & 5th house and sits in 12th house in Libra. This is a similar situation but as Jupiter is in enemy sign, results may not be so great here. As Libra is sign of keeping things balanced, 12th house is foreign lands and Jupiter is wisdom, this shows someone working as foreign diplomat who keeps things under control and in check between two countries. They can counsel people regarding peace and spirituality. They can be seen as a counselor working between two people or two countries to avoid warring situations.

Saturn - Saturn also can be 5th house ruler through its two signs.

In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 5th house lord, Saturn in 12th house (for Virgo/Libra Ascendants respectively) shows that access to foreign lands or foreign travels came late in life. In early life, they may have tried a lot to reach to foreign lands but their may be one or the other obstacles. This also shows a kind of loss of education, i.e. what you study doesn't get used in your work. It also shows that their children leave them for foreign lands. It also shows that person is frugal or miser and doesn't spend a lot. Education will be of Law mostly. Their work will be of repetitive nature and would be regarding Foreign Lands or MNCs. Saturn in Virgo also shows a Healing Career.

Rahu - If Rahu is 5th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 12th house in Virgo then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Virgo in 12th house will transform Rahu as Mercury 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 Virgo in 12th house shows that person is obsessive about details and perfection. They can be a continuous chatter. They are spendthrift and find hard to save money. At the same time, they can be great in health care as Rahu represents Drugs and Virgo represents Healing Activities. At the same time, as Rahu represents unusual things, this shows a career in alternate healing. They can also be working in MNCs in any detail oriented work.

Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 5th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 12th house in Gemini 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 the spiritual beliefs spread by others. They never find themselves agree with the concepts of spirituality of others and always find fault there. Similarly, they reach foreign land but don't find anything of interest there and feel isolated. It is one of the most prominent Moksha Margi position. Ketu in Gemini shows that these people don't like chattering much and happy being themselves..

Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
