The 5th house represents your creativity and how you invest in yourself and take risks. Also, love affairs, children and the luck that does or doesn't come your way.
It's a house of personal passion, driving you toward whatever lights your inner fire and brings out the child within. Entertainment, play time and romantic adventures are signified here, ruled over by dramatic, bold Leo. This house is what guides you to crave attention and want the spotlight -- from seeking out an attentive partner to gaining recognition for your artistic endeavors.
Your birth chart is divided into 12 "houses" which govern specific areas of your life. At the time of your birth, each planet was located in a particular astrological sign and in one of the 12 houses.
