5th House

The 5th house in astrology, is the area of life concerned with self expression and creativity. Having passed through the first four houses, our child is now a youth and is ready to express himself and his unique talents in the world. No longer is he taking in energy from the outside world and establishing a place in the world, now he knows he has talents and something to give to the world out there. He has something to say and views to express. He is special and unique and the world is about to find out just how so! It is the spontaneous outpouring of his or her creativity and inspirational energy. It is the place we truly feel alive and energised. Where does this energy go to? Well for a young person, inevitably their thoughts turn to the opposite sex. This is the place of the romantic love affair. The place where a person expresses their ideas and dreams and talents to another person.


The 5th house is also a house associated with children since their playfullness, joy and spontaneity are all reflections of this same outpouring of creative energy. This house will show how we relate to children since they are a reflection of the child inside each of us.


The 5th house is naturally ruled by and parallels the sign of Leo. It is a fire house and as such is full with inspirational energy. Leos understand the world in relation to how they shine in it. This is the house where we can shine and show our talents and charm and grace and generosity.
