The Fifth House of Fun and Children:

The Leo House

The Fifth House is sometimes known as the Leo House. This means that Leo normally rules he fifth house. As Leo is ruled by the sun, this means that the fifth house will have similar qualities to that of the sign of Leo and our largest star- the sun.

*The 5th house is succedent, along with the other three fixed signs- Taurus, Scorpio, and Aquarius, (one for each element).

If you’re like me and have many planets in your fifth house, you probably express quite a bit of Leo energy. No matter your sign, if your planets are filled in here, you are still heavily influenced by the sun. This means you are likely quite entertaining, somewhat dramatic with news, highly creative, and child-like, getting along with children easily.

If you do not have any planets in your fifth house, this does not mean that you do not possess any of the qualities mentioned above, nor does it mean you won’t have children. It simply means you need to refer to the sign that rules your house to see what it means for you.

What is the 5th House?

The fifth house is quite a busy house, as it is the house of the sun and Leo. The sun is big and bright and the fifth house, like the sun, wishes to be seen! This is the house of expression and doing all the things we enjoy doing. Romance, children, and fun activities, this house shows us where we unleash our creativity.

Hobbies, interests, games you like to play, what you do in your spare time, how youthful you are or are not. The Fun side to your romantic life, lovers, sexual interests, your actual children, where you engage with children, how creative you are and what you doing creatively, entertainment, and self-expression.
