The 5th House: Signs and Planets

If you have an empty 5th House, do not fear. You still have a 5th House and it's still important, just like every house, whether it has planets or no planets in it. The sign on the 5th House cusp and/or planets in the 5th represent what you need to cultivate in order to be fully creative and live an entertaining life, as well as get yourself out there in the dating scene. It also relates to your inner child (how you were as a kid) and how you deal with children. However, you might care more about your inner kid and not like kids. You might not even want or have kids. Whatever the case may be. But, it's the childlike spirit that you access. 
Aries in the 5th House and/or Mars in the 5th House
You have a very aggressive, assertive sense of creativity. You’re capable of completely living in the moment, even if this spontaneity ends up causing a lot of damage in the end. As a child, you were really active and athletic. So, with children, you push them a lot to do things. You want to them to grab life by the horns and not rest on their laurels. If you have children, they’ll have a strong Mars or Aries influence. They’ll be courageous, blunt, and competitive, even with you!

You come on really strong whenever you’re flirting and aren’t hesitant to make the first move. Dominant, ballsy types draw you in, so you regularly get crushes on Aries-influenced folks. The process of the chase is so exciting to you. However, once the sex has been had, the spark might die out because now they’re no longer a challenge. Are they the player or are you?

Taurus in the 5th House
Creativity is about taking your sweet time. You hate being rushed into doing anything. But, once you do it, you really stick to it. You were really lazy as a child and loved nothing more than eating and being a couch potato. It was almost like meditation for you. Therefore, around kids, you’re always making sure they’re comfortable and at peace. You can indulge them a lot. Your own kids will have either a dominant Taurus or Venus energy. They’re sweet but they expect all the good things you have to offer.

You’re flirty in a really sensual, laidback way, not trying too hard to broadcast your interest. If they’re attracted, too, they’ll come your way. You find Taurus types really hot, as that slow and steady vibe just activates all of your hormones. Right off the bat, you want to be wined and dined or shower them in riches. Yet, the fabulous life can soon get old and cause you to move on.

Gemini in the 5th House and/or Mercury in the 5th House
You feel most creative when you’re bouncing around all sorts of thoughts. Feel free to change your mind, as that switch in your head is always flipping. When you were a kid, you were highly curious and talkative, maybe to a degree that drove adults crazy. But, you were very intelligent. Now, kids find you very easy to talk to and interesting to be around. Your children will have a strong Gemini or Mercury influence. They’re witty and unpredictable, just like you, and are often your little Mini Me.

You’re a massive flirt but can also be the master of leading people on, as you flirt in a way that doesn’t take it seriously. Your eye constantly roams and you find a hottie in just about every direction. Gemini folks catch your attention easily, as that quick wit and bright mind is just so sexy to you. Amazing conversation easily seduces you but that doesn’t mean that it keeps you around.

Cancer in the 5th House and/or Moon in the 5th House
Your sense of creativity is very intuitive. When you follow your gut, you’re truly living in-the-moment. You must have confidence in your instincts! As a child, you were super-sensitive and emotional but might have often felt targeted because of that. So, you’re really protective around children now as an adult, never wanting them to be hurt. Your children will have Cancer placements or a strongly placed Moon. They’re deep and receptive, often even making you feel supported.

You’re often quite shy when you’re feeling someone because you tend to feel so much for them right away. Your romantic interest is sparked by someone who makes you feel safe, which is why you’re often so hot for Cancer people. Intimacy and opening up can happen quickly and lead to great sex. But, the let’s-share-our-feelings bit can grow stale after a while and cause it to fizzle out.

Leo in the 5th House and/or Sun in the 5th House
Well, you’re just an amazingly creative person. Not only are you super-expressive and entertaining but you have wonderful confidence in your endeavors. You really sought out the spotlight as a kid. Yet, you sometimes needed an off switch. Therefore, you readily give children a chance to shine but might then sweep in and upstage them. If you have kids, they will have a strong Leo or Sun influence. They’re self-assured little superstars and, in that sense, real chips off the old block.

You are not only bold about your romantic interest but pretty presumptuous, as you can just assume that whoever you find hot thinks you’re hot, too. Luckily, you’re often drawn to Leo folks who dig this same sort of confidence. Your heart flutters at how glamorous and exciting everything around them feels like. However, the party’s got to end sometime. When it does, is it still fulfilling?

Virgo in the 5th House
You have a knack for being both spontaneous and analytical. You’re excellent at planning really fun things to do because so much of your creativity and enjoyment comes from organizing things. In childhood, you were a real smarty-pants, probably correcting the adults around you all the time. And you try to guide kids toward thinking more sensibly now as an adult. Your children will have either strong Virgo or Mercury energy, serving as a reflection of you by giving you advice all of the time.

You’re quite sensible and humble when you’re crushing on someone. You might doubt that they like you yet this humility can be a turn-on to others. You’re often into Virgo types, as intelligence is hotter to you right away than anything else. Things start off in the romance in a very practical way. In the beginning, you keep things down-to-earth. But, you may start craving something more.

Libra in the 5th House and/or Venus in the 5th House
You feel most creative when you’re paired up with someone, which often means your partner. You started early as a kid, as your heart fluttered more quickly than the other children. There was always a new crush, a new apple of your eye, and you were very flirty. Now, you encourage children to look their best as well as to be considerate and polite. Since your own kids will have Libra planets or a strong Venus, they’ll be just as flirty and sophisticated as you were at their age.

You’ve mastered the art of flirting, keeping it classy while still broadcasting your interest. You can’t ignore a cutie when you see one and tend to crush on Libra-influenced people, as their sophisticated charm is like catnip to you. You definitely want the romance to feel like a romance: candlelight dinner, good movie, the works. But, what happens when all of the charm and politeness wears thin?

Scorpio in the 5th House and/or Pluto in the 5th House
Your creative moments are secretive and mysterious. You’re not totally open or direct about your plans, which was how you were even as a kid. There were always hidden depths about you that the adults around you could only guess at. As an adult now, you’re very tuned into children, intuiting their secret feelings and motives. If you have children, they’ll be strong in Scorpio or Pluto energy. They’re enigmatic and even a bit unnerving cause they see right through you.

Whenever you’re romantically interested in someone, you’re very subtle about it. Scorpio types are the ones you find particularly crush-worthy, as their air of mystery is very seductive to you. Dating can be like falling down the rabbit hole to you. Your all or nothing is invested instantly, which makes things very torrid and intense right away. Then, you may feel the need to come to your senses.

Sagittarius in the 5th House and/or Jupiter in the 5th House
You believe that being creative is all about exploring different options. An active sense of discovery is very fun to you. As a child, you were very restless as well as irrepressible, too larger-than-life to be contained. Therefore, you relate to children now by allowing them to be totally free and live with the wind in their hair. You’ll want your own children to see the whole world! They will have either prominent Sagittarius or Jupiter influences, making them free-spirited sidekicks on all of your journeys.

You’re most seduced by someone who promises to take you away out of your dreary life to somewhere exciting. This is why Sagittarius-influenced people are so sexy to you: their thirst for adventure. The crush tends to last as long as things remain fun and bigger-than-life. But, you might then feel the need to move on toward another adventure. Dating is an endless exploration for you.

Capricorn in the 5th House and/or Saturn in the 5th House
Your sense of creativity just comes from working hard. Every moment is like a goal to you and you live in that moment by dedicating yourself to the goal. You probably weren’t really a childlike kid, acting more like an adult. You felt like you had to work hard and get stuff done. You might to be too strict with kids, sometimes. Yet, you can encourage them to achieve anything they want to. If you have kids, they’ll be Capricorn or Saturn types who are just as mature and dutiful as your inner kid.

You find someone who seems like a real boss very attractive. This is why those with Capricorn planets are often really hot to you. They’re just in command of their situation, maybe even of you! When the first flush of romance hits, you want things to remain practical and structured. However, that can stop being so attractive after a while, causing you or them to get “fired.”

Aquarius in the 5th House and/or Uranus in the 5th House
Living in the moment, for you, is about daring to be different. You have a wild, eccentric creative flair that doesn’t care much what others think. You were a very quirky child because of this, as well as highly independent-minded and even rebellious. As a result, you’re very hands-off with children, encouraging them to think for themselves and be individuals. Your children will have strong Aquarius or Uranus influences that make them march to their own drumbeat, like their eccentric parent.

Craziness and sexiness are the same thing to you. So, you develop a lot of crushes on Aquarius types, as you find a chemistry with them that’s really electrifying and exciting. You seek to turn their world upside down, introducing them to all sorts of things they never knew or tried before and vice versa. However, this wild, rebellious abandon might not be what you need to actually commit.

Pisces in the 5th House and/or Neptune in the 5th House
You’re highly creative but in a way that might not always translate to the “real world.” You find the moment elusive and hard to explain, as you get completely lost in it. You had a big imagination as a kid, as well as a painfully empathetic awareness of others. Therefore, you’re very delicate and selfless with children. Yet, you might also give up too much of yourself! If you have kids, they will be dominant in Pisces or Neptune traits, making them ethereal beings on their own plane.

Sometimes, you might be confused about who you find sexy or why exactly you find them sexy. And this is what draws you to those with a Pisces influence because there’s just something intangible about them that’s crush-worthy. The early parts of the romance are often like a dream for the both of you, as you drift away to your own little landscape together. But, this might mean that you’re also highly prone to disappointment and disillusion while dating because this can never hold up.

  1. What would you say if you had multiple planets in the house? I, for example, have Libra on the 5th house cusp along with Venus(Scorpio), Mars(Scorpio), and Pluto(Sag.).

    1. Then you're a combination of all of those descriptions.

  2. I have Virgo on my 5th house cusp with sun & Jupiter in Libra In the 5th house I'm still in touch with my inner child I love children and children are naturally drawn to me.... I get along great with them I really kno how to get down on their level and relate to them !! As a child I was super expressive,creative, spontaneous irrepressible & larger than life I infuse creativity into everything that I do

  3. am i constricting myself from being social and or expressing my quirkiness if i have the planet saturn in aquarius in the fifth house?

    1. Well, are you? Saturn doesn't necessarily mean restriction. Think of it as maturity, hard work and responsibility.

      Depending on other placements and aspects in your chart, this might be a very beneficial placement when it comes to getting creative stuff actually done. Think of people like Madonna (5th house in Capricorn) - being a successful artist requires a lot of hard work, even if it doesn't look like it. Or scientists who spend years and years meticulously working on a new way to benefit humanity.

      Aquarius isn't social in an extroverted, lots-of-friends and being popular kind of way. It's more abstract, like, what benefits the group? It's the egalitarian. :)

  4. Oh my goodness, this is so spot on. Both my mother and I married the signs on our 5th house cusp - freakily accurate!

  5. I have Leo Aquarius and the north NOde on the cusp of 4 and 5, children are the centre of my world! Really helped me thank you
