Chandra-5 ABSORBS the inspiration of divine intelligence into oneself.
This is not really a problem except for some tendency to absorb the lives of one's children into one's own charismatic emotional aura.
Chandra in any bhagya Bhava (1, 5, 9) = auspicious. Bhava-5 = Divine Intelligence. Here, Chandra-5

E.g., in Thula, Chandra-5 feels a need to self-express by getting things back into balance, re-negotiating, re-arranging, and beautifying.

Emotional enthusiasm for nurturing and caretaking activities. Loves children and creative activities. Natural and instinctive generosity of spirit(Surya). Enjoys the feeling of having Good Luck.

Deep and abiding parental intelligence, and generally also a large number of children (relative to the cultural norm). One's children are the emotional center of one's life. A creative caretaker, who may adjust the cultural norms of parenting somewhat in order to care for many children, in addition to one's own progeny.
Sentimental affection for children and ability to channel divine intelligence into the world of children.
Splendid placement for a creative teacher of youth.
Agents of approval, admiration, applause = Mother and parents or caretakers.

A man will generally enjoy a good relationship with his mother, experiencing her as a provider of self-confidence, good fortune and amusement in his early life.
He is emotionally rewarded by his mother for demonstrating independence, adventurousness and compassionate love for others. He continues these emotional habits successfully into adult life. A good lover who enjoys much romance with the women in his life.
A woman will typically enjoy a creative emotional state, full of lively children and loving appreciation of the fine and performance arts. Her own mother is a beneficial, supportive force who communicates female emotional vitality and validation. (However the mother may be non-traditional and self-centered.)
The woman also is validated for adventurousness and civilized creativity; she has emotional permission to produce entertainments and receive pleasures from romantic companions. There is much love and poetry in the life.
Further improved if Soma rules an auspicious sthana.
Protecting the Rights of the Vulnerable
Opposite of self-radiant Surya-5 in terms of empathy for others: compassionate and sensitive to feelings, particularly toward children.
If strong, Chandra-5 may become an icon or even a savior of the weak, needy, and insecure. May be able to represent and reflect (Chandra) a political (5) movement promising
On the political platform, Chandra does not normally propose to introduce the radically new, exciting, or non-habitual. Rather, in the politicized 5th bhava, Chandra glows with the comforting, familiar, paternalistic assurance that the rights (5) already politically (5) established (Chandra) within the State or nation will be defended against outside threats (Chandra).
Special inspirational political (5) appeal to women and affiliation with protecting-the-fragile 'environmentalist' causes.
Disagreement, disappointment, emotional servitude =
When Chandra occupies Bhava-5, the most difficult house emotionally becomes 6th-from-5th = karma bhava.

|Das / Bepin Behari comments upon Chandra-5:||
" This placement is basically very good.
It makes you a tranquil and balanced person at your basis.
This moon gives you interest in getting your life together more so than making a novel contribution to the society at large.
makes your mind fundamentally good.
The 5th house stands for children, enterprise, speculations, gains, love affairs, ... so you will find that your mind gravitates to these things.
This also gives you patience, gentleness, good looks, health and noble parents.
... the timid learned type.
This Moon bodes well for the attainments of your children.
