In astrology, the 5th house (opposite the 11th house) in your natal chart represents your love life, your hobbies, heartfelt desires and your own children -- if you have any.
It's a fixed fire house denoting that it's about 'materializing' your emotional needs/emotions. It's thus about the way you can emotionally express yourself in a more creative and tangible way.
Because of the fire element, it's about actions, doing something. Because it's a fixed house, it's also about materializing things.
In the 5th house, we find the need to express and realize ourselves in an emotional and creative way.
Because of the polarity with the 11th house (representing the children of others, group interests and involvements), it also relates to your own self and EGO, your behavior.
The sign(s) on the cusp and in the 5th house describe your behavior and the way you express yourself emotionally, which is another way of expressing love.
Planets in the 5th house color your love life in a certain way.
Below, we only list the planets in the 5th house separately.
In case two or more planets reside in the 5th house, the meaning can alter substantially (in our opinion, you CANNOT blend the meaning of the individual delineations as such -- the outcome seems to be more than the sum of the parts).
It seems that stelliums or multiple conjunctions in the 5th house have their own meaning which still needs further research!
