The Fifth House in Astrology

The fifth house is ruled by Leo and the Sun. In your astrology birth chart, it shows romance, courage, creativity, and has a child-like innocents to it. The fifth house is also where we seek validation and attention. When you are looking at your hobbies or artistic talents, the fifth house is the place to check.

Here is where we look to for creativity and romance. It's our self-expression, hobbies, romantic relationships, pleasures and entertainment, and it even rules children. The fifth house is more of the house of sexual pleasure and romantic flings rather than marriage and soul connecting. Look at your eighth house for soul connecting bonds.

Planets in the Fifth House

The signs in astrology show the attitude we take on the house sector but the planets in astrology show how we act on that attitude. The planets in any house reveal the energy we play out in the different areas of our lives. It’s important to note that the aspects made between planets will also play a role on this energy too.

If the energy is repressed, we find that through the challenging aspects (squares, oppositions, and sometimes conjunctions). If the energy thrives, we find that through the harmonious aspects (trines, sextiles, and sometimes conjunctions).
