The Fifth House: Let's Party

The Fifth House: Let's Party

What the Fifth House represents in astrology

NBC News

Natural Sign: Leo

Ruling Planet: The Sun

Quadrant: 2nd (Bottom Right)

House Type: Succedent Spirit

Represents: children, creativity, entertainment (sports, games, etc.), hobbies, romance.

“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.

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only was she the person to build Smashbox Cosmetics into what it is today, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.

Sixth grade was the year that you were allowed to participate in a school sport. This was what my friends and I had all been waiting for since we started middle school. I had already made the cheer team with my friends, but I had to wait to start that in the winter since we cheered for basketball. I really wanted to have some sort of activity in the fall, but I did not know what to do. Somehow, I decided to run cross country. Not really sure how I decided on a sport where it was quite literally just running. A few of my friends were doing it as well, so I knew it was going to be fun.

Working Out Every Day During Quarantine Helps Me Feel A Sense Of Control

Physical activity helps my mental health in a world that feels uncertain.

Before the pandemic, I exercised a handful of times a week at best. In quarantine, I've been exercising every single day. I don't want this article to be another spiel about how exercise "changed my life," and all the other cliches that health gurus use to convince others to work out more. Rather, I want to reveal that exercise is a tool that works for me because it boosts my mental health when I feel like the world is spiraling out of control.

To say that 2020 has been a bit of a roller coaster is an extreme understatement. Who knew that this decade was going to start off like THIS!? Not me, not you, and not that sweet old lady who lives down the street. One thing is certain though — while the world may be a mess right now, you can still fuel your body with food that keeps you happy and healthy. Thankfully, as we are all spending more time inside, you can get healthy snacks delivered straight to your front door! Amazon has never been more convenient (and tasty).
