What do the 12 houses in your birth chart mean?

The planets in our solar system influence our lives here on Earth. Each planet has a distinct energy — like Venus being associated with love.

Depending on the planet’s energy they will have more or less power over the different areas of our life.

The 12 houses are created from the sun’s journey around the 12 zodiac star constellations — first house being Aries.

Each zodiac sign has a ruling planet. When you combine the energies of a zodiac sign and their ruling planet you get a house.

The ruling planet is the overall energy of a house and the zodiac sign is how that energy will be expressed.

The Fifth House (Sun + Leo)

  • Creativity
  • Pleasure
  • Hobbies
  • Casual sex
  • Fertility

The fifth house is often referred to as The House of Creativity. The sun is all about one’s identity and expressing individuality. Leo brings the expression of enjoyment and pleasure.

The fifth house is about how an individual will have fun — this could be through sports or other forms of entertainment.

The fifth house gives information about casual sex for self enjoyment or as a way to keep the body active. Insights into romantic and meaningful sex can be found in the eighth house.
