Fifth House in the Complete Horoscope

Your Pleasures in Classical Astrology

Fifth House in the horoscope.
The oasis of one's own needs and longings,
what to do when free from calls of duty,
for the sake of oneself.


The 5th House governs your leisure, what you do for your own enjoyment. Your hobbies and interests.



       It's the House of what you do because you like to, while so much else in life - and in the Complete Horoscope - comes from obligations or necessity.


Zodiac sign and Planet

If the House changes Zodiac sign somewhere in its span, that means your favorite pastime changes. This is not uncommon. Even the most enjoyable experiences, one may get tired of after a number of years. If the House is dominated by one single Zodiac sign, on the other hand, you're likely to keep the same hobbies and interests you developed already in childhood.

       Planets in the 5th House indicate that there's a lot of activity in your spare time. Planetary presence also means that what you do with your free time and of your own choice is quite important in your life. A lack of planets in the House doesn't mean that you lack pastime, but it does suggest that you're not very dependent on it. That's not what you regard as essential in your life.

       Here are simple keywords describing your leisure, depending on what Zodiac sign you have in the 5th House:

  • Aries active
  • Taurus resting
  • Gemini playful
  • Cancer affectionate
  • Leo self-centered
  • Virgo diligent
  • Libra harmonious
  • Scorpio unsettling
  • Sagittarius exploring
  • Capricorn constructive
  • Aquarius contemplative
  • Pisces searching

       Here are keywords for how your leisure is affected if you have a planet in your 5th House:

  • Sun extensive
  • Moon devoted
  • Mercury amusing
  • Venus pleasant
  • Mars intense
  • Jupiter varied
  • Saturn somber
  • Uranus interesting
  • Neptune exciting
  • Pluto dramatic

       The keywords are just simple clues to understand the 5th House. You need to consider the whole before deciding on the meaning of one single ingredient.


Aspects

The 5th House has the following aspect relations to other Houses:

  • Opposition 180 11th House
  • Trine 120 9th House, 1st House
  • Square 90 8th House, 2nd House
  • Sextile 607th House, 3rd House

       These relations between the Houses are quite important when analyzing their influence. The opposition aspect to the 11th House, that of the big social scene and your ideals, is not so hard to see: either you care for yourself or for the rest of the world. At least they are not compatible simultaneously.

       The trine to the 9th House, that of travel and change, means that these things are stimulating to you. The trine to the 1st House, your identity, makes sense since they are both about you. What you enjoy and what you present to others.

       The square to the 8th House, things out of your control, is frustrating because it limits your ability to follow your on whims. The square to the 2nd House, personal resources, reminds you that leisure is costly and rarely brings any benefits. Still, squares are not insoluble. You can find ways to make it all work out.

       The sextile to the 7th House, partnership, shows how easy it is to combine your wishes with a partner, especially since having one to your liking is already quite pleasing. The sextile to the 3rd House, friends, is just about the same: it's with your friends you can enjoy your spare-time the most.
