If Mars is in the 5th House, the person will be intense, alert, intelligent, rash, shrewd and with a quick temper.

Unless Mars is well aspected, it will ruin good Houses.

The person will enjoy sports and athletics, which will be a very suitable career for them. 

Investments and speculation will bring mixed results due to the impulsive, stubborn nature of the influence of Mars, which drives us to fight to the death, even when it is obvious that surrender would be more prudent.
