“Fun” is the keyword for the Fifth House. This is the area of enjoyment, elation, leisure, letting yourself loose. This is the house of youth, the house of play, the house without rules. The sign and planet associated with the Fifth House are Leo and the Sun. You get to express yourself to your content and let go of everything that bogs you down. No matter how much you love to work, or how hard you feel you should work, you have to give yourself “me time.” That’s why the Sun rules your confidence, you ego, and your “self”: it’s all about you, about giving yourself the attention that you need (and definitely deserve). For anyone familiar with the show Parks and Recreation, think of this as your “Treat Yo’ Self” house. The Fifth House is where you get to celebrate life.

Most people who have gone through their teen years are familiar with dating. The process of learning about romance with other people goes hand in hand with the Fifth House vibe. It differs from the intimacy of the Seventh House: dating is more related to passion and the fun of learning new things about someone else. Despite the dating scene being one of enjoyment, each person’s way of dealing with it depends on the sign and planets in the Fifth House and how (s)he expresses that energy. With Cancer in this house, someone can have a nurturing or clingier approach to dating, whereas Aquarius here leads her to be detached and aloof towards significant others. Neptune here can bring someone to be unrealistic or highly romantic as a significant other; in contrast, Saturn here can make someone stern or responsible in romance, or make him/her avoid dating, altogether. A person with Pisces and the Moon in the Fifth House would be empathetic to significant others to the point where he puts their feelings above his own.

The purpose of having hobbies is to do something we love for leisure. Everyone has at least one hobby, whether it’s reading, kayaking, daydreaming or reading epitaphs on headstones. Everyone’s definition of entertainment is unique, and no method of having fun is better than the other. Talking, writing stories, reading magazines, and learning random trivia can be enjoyable to Gemini Fifth House. However, Libra Fifth House might have more fun attending a play, going to a beauty salon, or spending time with a spouse. Jupiter here means having many hobbies (sometimes too many), while Pluto can mean becoming obsessed with a hobby or taking it to the next level. Aries Venus in the Fifth House can result in having a love of sports, exercise, and other activities that keep one moving. Leo Mercury in the Fifth House can mean hobbies include acting or writing plays.

Playing is the purpose of the Fifth House, and no one knows the importance of play more than children. This house not only reveals the ways in which we play, but also the ways we relate to children, and our general attitudes towards them. Can you flawlessly join their games, or do you feel like a kitten in a litter of wolf cubs? Are they blessings or little night terrors? You may find them very smart, overly messy, or harshly critical (Virgo)1. Or maybe you think children are hard workers, wiser than their years, or a little too pessimistic (Capricorn). The moon here creates someone who’s a child at heart, or someone who’d love to become a parent. Mars here would find kids to either be bundles of energy or hot-tempered tyrants. Ironically, what we think about kids can say a lot about how we have a good time.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch 'Arrested Development' On Netflix

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).


"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.

Celebrities Stealing Designs From Small Fashion Labels Is NOT A Good Look, And They Need To Pay Up

When larger, more established figures or brands steal from lesser-known independent creators, they are taking opportunities away from these creators while also profiting from someone else's work and claiming it as their own.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B recently collaborated on their new single "WAP," with the music video also being released on Friday. Both Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B posted photos of themselves on Instagram to celebrate the premiere of "WAP." An independent designer quickly noticed that the rappers' matching tops were copies of a top she had designed last year.
