The fifth house in astrology is associated with children, creativity, love affairs and leisure time. In traditional astrology, it is known as the house of ‘good fortune’. Venus is in her joy here.
William Lilly says of the fifth house;
By this house we judge of children, of ambassadors, of the state of a woman with child, of banquets, of ale-houses, taverns, plays, messengers or agents for republics; of the wealth of the father, the ammunition of a town besieged; if the woman with child shall bring forth man or woman; of the health or sickness of his son or daughter that asks the Question.
It ruleth the stomach, liver, heart, sides and back, and is masculine.
Of colours, black and white, or honey-colour, and is a succedent house. Its cosignificators are Leo and Venus, who doth joy in this house in regard it’s the house of pleasure, delight and merriment; it’s wholly unfortunate by Mars or Saturn, and they therein show disobedient children and untoward.””

Moon Transit & Full Moon in 5th House
Moon transit fifth House is a superb one for you with which to enjoy the simple pleasures of life with people you really love. This one takes you back to a time of childlike innocence. It’s about getting excited that it’s a sunny day and you are about to visit a cafe that does 99 flavours of Italian ice cream. Everything is yummy with the moon here. You should also feel extra nurturing and protective over every small and fluffy person, place or thing. If you could give a word to this placement it would be “cute”. You will feel nostalgia for the golden age of your youth (If you are older than 30!). Allow yourself to be a dreamer and have wishful thoughts.
Moon in the fifth house has an incredibly soft-focused, right-brained, feminine energy. You will feel more drawn to women, whether you are male or female. You will want to spend time in pretty places, and gaze at colours and items that are easy on the eye. The absolutely worst place to be would be with this moon here for you would be on a loud, clanking building site surrounded by sweaty, obtuse males. Do yourself a favour and keep away from pubs that show big screen rugby for the next two weeks. If you are a meaty rugby guy yourself, you might feel out of sorts, well this is why… Don’t worry yourself, all things pass! Enjoy this easy going, bubble-gum period while it lasts.
Mercury Transit 5th House
This is a good time to play with ideas and have some fun at work. You find it difficult to take things seriously and are likely to become the office clown. At least you will be quite popular with your peers, everyone likes a laugh! Making money is not your prime objective as you fall into pursuits that just bring you pleasure. Happily, this attitude can still benefit your business as the fun factor attracts clients.
If you work for yourself you should feel extremely creative at this time because you are able to let go of aiming at ideas that make money and just make things that bring your pleasure. It is at these moments that we rise above the rigid material expectations and very often come up with our most inventive and successful products. Paradoxically, when we are not thinking of making money, we often come up with ideas that do the best commercially.
You might have been feeling that you had to be too strict in recent weeks, just in order to gain respect or keep order. You have been working hard, so you deserve time to loosen up and be more playful. You can use this time to charm your co-workers or employees. It’s a good time to reveal you are in fact human and not just Mr or Mrs robot-efficient. Creatively you can experiment and not do things by the book so much, as you have already built a strong framework to hold up your wilder ideas.
Venus Transit 5th House
This should be the most romantic month of the year for you. Venus becomes pure joy itself in this pleasure zone of your chart. You have the universe’s full permission to devote yourself to love, romance and 5-star indulgence. This is a wonderful time to take a holiday, as the current energies are far more conducive to play than work. For single people, it would be a real waste to be stuck behind a desk as you are brimming with Venusian attraction.
This is probably the most pleasurable time of the year for dating. If you are already attached it would be hugely beneficial to get in touch with your creative side and spent time immersed in the arts. Outings to museums, theatres and concerts for singles could connect you to someone else with whom you can share the finer things in life. Most of all, you are appealing to others because you are happy and confident with just being yourself. Make the most of this fantastic period.
