Planets in The Fifth House
The 5th house is naturally associated with the sign Leo and its ruler the Sun. In the 4th house we establish our material and psychological roots, in the 5th we seek to express our own creativity. Creativity can be expressed through children as extensions of our physical bodies, or through various art forms as extensions of our inner selves. This house is also associated with leisure activities, sports, gambling, love affairs etc. in fact all forms of recreation where we seek to express ourselves freely and without inhibition.

Sun in the 5th House
All of this is most likely to focus upon the means and products of your creative expression. This would involve things like pastimes, romance, children, art, speculation, drama, partying, etc. What this entails or even demands of you is that you celebrate your uniqueness in an unreserved, even abandoned way.
You find brightness simply through shining; and in company you do seem to glow. Being proud of your own life and personality, as long as it does not devolve into conceit, encourages others to be proud of themselves as well. The making of something or someone is your essential quality. To you the world really is a stage, so the power and ability to play is vital, as too is your understanding that life is for living.

Moon in the 5th House
All these needs and feelings are especially drawn to situations where fun and creativity are in the offing. How you respond to this has a great deal to do with your Moon-Sign traits, which I have just described. One way or the other though, you are instinctively drawn to one type or another of creative self-expression - be it art or drama, children, romance, hobbies or gambling. Because you naturally have a feel for such areas, there is an infectious and familiar quality about you and others gather round this like a campfire. Get my Soul Scope Report
Mercury in the 5th House
This mind of yours loves playing. You enjoy mental games, and fun and romance usually need some mental pursuit or content to make them go with a swing. You also have a need to prove yourself and impress others with your wit and intellectual capabilities. This is okay as long as it doesn't get in the way of, or become a substitute for, emotional expression. You should avoid mental conceit or approaching emotional involvements too analytically or things could become boring. Nevertheless, you do have a talent for teaching and comedy. Your original way of communicating has a memorable effect upon the listener, especially children. Generally, your writing or manual skills make for fulfilling hobbies or successful occupations. Your mind is a major creative tool. Get my Soul Scope Report
Venus in the 5th House
Your feelings of love and beauty have no trouble finding expression because you have a natural sense that they should be expressed. So you possess the usual graces of a romantically and artistically inclined soul: affectionate, lively, entertaining, attractive to the opposite sex, etc. You also like to seek out such qualities in life and others, so galleries, theatres, parties, etc. exercise a magnetic pull.
You experience all the highs and lows of love and art, for this is essentially what gives you such a vibrant sense of them. You should never let anything get in the way of expressing yourself creatively for your natural style is very real. If you have children, it shows in them too. Get my Soul Scope Report
Mars in the 5th House
Whatever your manner of self-assertion, because you have a lust for life you run into plenty of opportunities to exercise it. You are rather like a sparking plug is to gasoline. Be it an affair of the heart, a business enterprise or whatever, things are set in unstoppable motion by your verve and desire.
If you are not aware of this provocative streak in your nature, you will attract rivalry anyway - or else you could have children who are bold or arrogant. But really it's you that is the forceful one and although there is a danger of being crude and unsubtle, going wholeheartedly for the object of your desires is in order. Get my Soul Scope Report
Jupiter in the 5th House
Most of all you apply this faith to, or look for it in, your enjoyment of living life to the full through creative, speculative or romantic pursuits - or children if you have any. Your giving rein to your lust for life can lean towards the excessive, but you have the innate belief that it's only through your experiencing something to excess that will properly absorb the meaning and worth of that experience - then you'll know for sure where you stand in relationship to it.
You are a great believer that life is a play and the world is a stage - but just make sure you know who the director is! Get my Soul Scope Report
Saturn in the 5th House
These lessons and limitations bear most of all upon your individual means of self-expression. This could include anything that is a creative product or outlet of yours such as artwork, children, hobbies, games, romance, etc, so delays, difficulties, duty, denial or heavy responsibilities are all possible in one or more of these areas.
You are learning to go about such matters in a disciplined way, as if you have to prove something. Until you do, little or nothing will be forthcoming. When you do however - which would be through a gradual process - you could become quite an authority in that field. Overall, you tend to feel that your creative efforts are being watched and judged. They are - by you! Since you are your own overseer, why not be a positive and generous one? Get my Soul Scope Report
Uranus in the 5th House
Your urge for change and awakening makes itself felt in your manner of sexual or creative expression. Whatever is original, or shocking, marks the way in which you come across, be it socially or artistically. In any event, taking a conventional route in this respect will either be very boring or unproductive or both. Sexually too, you are unlikely to be happy with the norm in the sense of settling down with the spouse and children, because this would seriously inhibit your all-important freedom of expression.
Any children you have will also be unusual, disruptive or gifted in some way. Creative ideas come and go like lightning, so you have to be ready and quick to catch them. This is important to bear in mind, for potentially you have access to a streak of genius - hence your insistence on the space to make free with your individuality. Get my Soul Scope Report
Neptune in the 5th House
For you, such sensitivity and yearning for something finer is very suitably and exquisitely bound up with creative expression and romantic involvement so you're likely to attract (and experience) extremes of ecstasy and sorrow as your fertile imagination has a field-day placing lovers on pedestals or feverishly striving to express some beautiful vision artistically.
Indeed, the 'Agony and the Ecstasy' are your constant companions, as they are for all romantic and creative souls. With affairs of the heart your inclination to beautify the object of your affections can certainly set you up for a fall as sooner or later his or her darker, or more ordinary side stabs through the rosy veil that you have cast over them. Such great heights will inevitably be followed by great lows - and then, if you're truly loving, there can be the sweetness of appreciating that your lover is even more loveable than before; or passion could turn to compassion, the romantic into the platonic.
You certainly ought to be artistically talented considering that yours is an artistic and poetic temperament and your work will be constantly inspired and fed by the peaks and troughs created by your acute sensitivity and imagination.
If for some reason you do not pursue some art form, then this has to be because of an unsympathetic figure or factor in your life that crushed your latent abilities. If this is the case, take up art as a hobby - because your imagination is too good to waste on mere daydreaming. If you have children, they are highly sensitive or imaginative.

Pluto in the 5th House
Power and transformation enter your life via your creative means of expression or romantic involvements. With the former, artwork, hobbies or drama can be quite heavy, death defying, or macabre. You wouldn't just paint pretty pictures for instance; you'd really be working out some deep psychological matters in your art. This same cloak of intensity affects your affairs of the heart.
Obsessiveness and a strong accent upon sex bear witness to the fact that although you may have been in it for fun at the start, as it wears on you become conscious that it's souls and not just bodies that are getting close with all the highs, lows and deep changes which this entails. The physical result of sex, children, will have an even more than usually profound effect upon you.
As an alternative to all this you consciously, or unconsciously, sense what deep and turbulent waters love or art will get you into - and so you back-paddle. But, as Dante said, "Take away my demons and you take away my angels". In other words, your choice is between either agony coupled with ecstasy, or, safety coupled with frustration.
