What are Astrological Houses?

Are we alone in the universe? The universe is our home, and as such, is everything in the universe just random and pointless? During the time and hour of your birth, celestial bodies were in motion and affected your character and destiny. Astrology believes that there is a grand design that connects us to the cosmic forces. Each planet and constellation have a special meaning. It influences the role we will eventually play on earth. The world is a stage, and behind the curtain are the heavenly bodies influencing the play.

Our first experiences happen within the self. Although we will be spending the rest of our lives with the self, its mysteries are perplexing. Subconscious forces and an inner life that is continuously in flux may mean that we are not aware of what’s happening within. You may wonder why you are drawn to something while repelled by others. Why did you choose to become a psychology major, for example? Why are you a good shoulder to cry on, and why do you give such good advice? Why do you ooze sex appeal?

The universe gave us gifts, potentials, and strengths as much as it gave us downfalls. It is necessary to always be self-aware. One way to self-awareness is by examining the interpretation behind one’s birth chart. The explanation of your birth can be uncannily accurate.

To jumpstart, the analysis of a birth chart requires a knowledge of the 12 astrological houses. The 12 houses are different from the zodiac wheel since they depict the earth’s rotation around its axis. The 12 houses represent different activities in life.

Cosmic forces move through each house and influence areas of your life. You will find that your emotional and mental state will be activated, influencing you to act in certain ways.

For example, how do you behave during parties? Are you a party animal or a wallflower? The party scene is the sphere of the Fifth House ruled by Leo.

Planetary influences and the sign on the Fifth House will determine how you will function in this arena. You can determine the full spectrum of planet and signs in your houses by calculating the time, date, and location of your birth.

Knowing the houses can tell you more than your personality. They can also tell you perfect timings. When should you move house, or when is the best time to make a proposal at work?  Are some days just darn lucky, or were planetary forces at play? Combining individual effort and consulting the stars can be the key to unlocking more meaning and fortune into your life.

What is the Fifth House?

The Fifth House is the house of the joyful inner child. The house preceding the Fifth House is the Fourth House where personal identity is formed. Once we have survived the initial stages of life, we become more individuated and discover ourselves further. Our ego becomes more developed, and we begin to learn skills that give us confidence. This is a joyful time. We are becoming stronger and making our identity. The Fifth House opens up the outer world, where we can demonstrate our talents and abilities. Some of the questions being answered by the Fifth House is how we spend our money and how we express our creativity.

The areas of influence of the Fifth House are pleasures and pastimes. It gives an insight into the what and how of the games we play. People who approach love affairs and handle money as if it were a game are likely to have strong planetary influences in their Fifth House.

In the Fifth House, we fulfill activities that give us energy and fulfillment. Hobbies, pastimes. Recreational activities, vacations, and parties are the realm of this house. It is crucial to pay special attention to this house and to fulfill its desires so we can have satisfaction and fulfillment. If you have any questions about what makes you happy, then the Fifth House is the key.

The Inner Child, Romance, and Self-expression

The inner child is nurtured in this house. In terms of life stage, this is the stage of middle childhood up to adolescence. This stage is a time of joy and happiness. How we nourish the child within and how easily we enter a child’s world is indicated in this house. Fire signs in this house will be more childlike. Love figures in this house but not how it is manifested in marriage. Here, love is still fresh, innocent, and romantic. It is young premarital love. Love is a source of pleasure and something which makes us special. Hence, our love style is influenced by Leo.

In terms of creative self-expression, the Fifth House describes how our self is shown to the outer world. This is where our inner life is manifested through art, music, and other creative activities to be witnessed and enjoyed by others. We are our actions, and the abilities and talents we share with the world help define and mark our identity. Individuation, which is the process of integrating the conscious and subconscious parts of ourselves, is crucial in this house to form a healthy ego. Whether we will rise or fall is a tale to be told both by planetary influences and how strong we stand against the forces of the universe.
