The more planets that are existent in our fifth house point to more energy to release inside ourselves and less interest in others own energies. The house has a strong connection with karma and our past lives, most particularly in regards to romance. It defines the way we express ourselves – personally, creatively and romantically.
The house is most commonly associated with enthusiasm, motivation, romance, personal pleasure, our inner child and a desire for happiness.
Planets in the Fifth House
Sun in 5th House. Speculation to which this position inclines is only partially advisable, because as a rule the native cannot await the right moment for it. Risky enterprises are best undertaken in company with others reliable people, the initiative being taken by the person who has Sun in 5th house in his nativity. Further this position denotes a particularly great inclination for social life and more or less luxurious pleasures; but also for an intensified inner life.
The Sun in the “house of the children” often causes the fire (Leo) of passion to scorch fruit before it is fully grown; likewise this position of the Sun in 5th house usually leads to childless marriage, or a child will not be born until after many years of married life.
Moon in 5th House denotes occupations which bring into contact with the public and gives the necessary talent for them without entailing any loss of personal originality. The life will probably be connected in some respect with the needs or education of children; at any rate others will be urged to interest in this department and to assist in molding a new generation more healthy and better developed.
When afflicted a person with this Moon position should in order to avoid disappointment, consider well before giving his affection to people.
Mercury in 5th House makes the native fond of agreeable, intimate, but merely friendly, intercourse with the other sex and gives much love for and interest in the education of children. Much sought after as a witty talker.
When afflicted this position renders superficial, rambling from one subject to another, inconstant in love affairs and subject to alienation from the children owing to lack of interest. Thoughtlessness and recklessness may lead to loss through speculation. Greater seriousness, deliberation and penetration should be cultivated. The world is sometimes looked upon as a hurly-burly.
Venus in 5th House inclines the native to be somewhat self-indulgent, and to act on impulse. Most attention is preferably given to what is agreeable, charming, artistic and mysterious (speculative). There is a lack of true love of work, of tackling things, although much time and trouble are given to, let us say fancy work e.g. organizing ‘sales of work’, making artistic articles for sale with a charitable purpose, Christmas distributions to the children of the poor etc. It should always be borne in mind that from all those occupations the person concerned ought himself to learn and the mind should gain by them, otherwise they are sure to bring disappointment at some time notwithstanding the good intentions with which things were begun.
Relations of love and friendship rest upon a more or less earnest idealistic basis. When well-aspected this position denotes a marriage blessed with many and dear children.
When afflicted this position renders the native naturally amorous, reckless, speculative.
Mars in 5th House indicates great “pluck” in starting enterprises and carrying out plans, and gives quick insight into new possibilities; a good understanding may however be seriously threatened by an excessively rash, uncontrolled and masterful manner in word and action. If the native acts tactfully and with insight, a profitable career may be made, especially in industrial matters with big companies or public works.
As this house also gives indications with regard to children we may conclude from this position of Mars especially if afflicted that grief and trouble will probably be caused directly or indirectly by one of the children. Finally this position warns the native against excessive impulsiveness and changeability in feelings of love and in the use of sexual force.
Jupiter in 5th House denotes much sociability and satisfaction through children. The native likes to associate with children in a large family. This position makes him fond of physical pleasures and indicates a knack of speculating.
When afflicted, there is a tendency to go in for gambling and lotteries, also a dislike of work and no heart for the care demanded by children. Through recklessness and ignorance his best chances will pass unused; trusting to his knowledge and the necessary good luck he will fail to notice opportunities for development and progress until too late or not at all.
Saturn in 5th House is favorable to the investment of money and careful speculation in trustworthy concerns, mortgages, the conclusion of a reliable life insurance through “care” for the children etc. We find here a serious educator of a limited number of children who will probably be neither very healthy nor strong.
When afflicted adversity in enterprises may be expected, the fruit of labor will be shriveling before it is ripe; with women miscarriages occur.
Uranus in 5th House warns the native against extravagances in love affairs; against too free an intercourse with the other sex, and all sorts of reckless enterprises are excessive dissipation. Uranus’ sudden uncommon impulses should not be thoughtlessly carried out; they require self-restraint and self-knowledge to bring about the good results which they of course intend. This position gives clear intuition, so that with a certain amount of concentration important spiritual discoveries may be expected. Uranus is here favorably posited for various enterprises in which new inventions are implied and applied, especially in the fields of physics and chemistry, probably also in occultism and metaphysics. The native’s mind is very active, and fertile in this direction and at times shows genius; nor does he lack the strength of will and perseverance to reach his aim. He likes to acquaint other people with his own often very utopian social views. Although a harmoniously aspected Uranus may for himself have reached clear and true vision, a practical ordinary man will regard his views as “music of the future” never to be realized.
When afflicted all kinds of unexpected hindrances arise, so that plans cannot be carried out; with women miscarriage occur, and the children themselves will often meet with accidents or suffer from rare diseases.
Neptune in 5th House gives peculiar thoughts about love; these run in an idealistic direction and the native has even a liking for platonic ideas. In business, enterprises, personal intimate intercourse there is a singular element of vague speculation and good faith. Wide-spread connections not always well-known, but reliable, as also unexpected changes may be expected here. The children of a person with this position are usually of a dreamy disposition.
An affliction especially with Mars or Venus, indicates a conflict between the higher and lower nature and points to strange experiences in this respect.
When afflicted there is a possibility of loss through deception.
