The fifth house is about risk, pleasure and fun. This is where you party – and where you take impulsive leaps of faith. The sign on the cusp of the fifth house will show how reckless or risk-averse you feel and how easy it is for you to dare to be different. The fifth house also reveals your flirting and dating style at the beginning of any new relationship.
Essentially, whatever makes you smile, laugh or light up with joy comes under the remit of the fifth house. Here we can tell what hobbies you likely enjoy and what kind of sense of humor you have. Whatever you like to fill your leisure time with, we can find a hint of that within the fifth house.
Think of the fifth house as your inner child. There’s a real sense of fun here, and with that comes a not always sensible disregard for the rules. As well as your own inner kid, the fifth house reveals how you feel about children in general, and it reflects your own youthfulness and maturity.
Creativity is also a fifth house matter, and this house – and any planets within it – will tell us a great deal about what and how you like to create. Artists, dancers, writers, chefs and crafters have their creative talents reflected in their fifth house and so do the rest of us, who are far more creative than we dare to know. Understanding the energies of your fifth house will help you to unlock and shape that creativity.
