individuality, of which he gained a greater awareness during the
introspective 4th House period of his life.
the movement is from H6, it is likely that a period of hard work or
illness has drawn to a close, allowing a person to express in one or
another creative form, the knowledge or understanding he gained during
this time. Thus, the act of self-expression enables him to gain a more
robust perception of himself and his individuality.
transit of Mercury to the 5th House is a very
time for self-expression in any form. When the inner planets are in this
area of the chart they are
when the planet is Mercury, then it is able to feed this energy to the
Sun, regardless of the house in which the Sun itself is to be found. Thus
a transit of Mercury to H5 can both lighten and inspire a person during
the challenging times of transits of the Sun to H4 or H6 and enable him to
retain a sense of his individuality.
Mercury progresses into the 5th House a person comes to develop a greater
awareness of himself as a channel for creative energy and strives to
integrate this enhanced awareness with his perception of self. The extent
to which he succeeds in doing this will determine, in turn, his success in
finding an effective channel of creative expression. He may have to
experiment with a variety of forms and become far more familiar with the
idea of himself as a creative person before he is able to express himself
with authenticity, a process that may take many years.
transit of Venus to the 5th House tends to increase a person's awareness
of creativity, both his own and that of others. The presence of Venus in
H5 enhances aesthetic sensitivity and the desire to express one's own

usual for recognition and positive feed back from others. Affairs and
flirtations are attractive at this time for this reason.

in the Fifth House.
Venus progresses into the 5th House then a person is likely to begin to
make a creative contribution to what hitherto has been an area of interest
to him. If the movement is from H4 to H5 then, depending largely upon the
sign occupied by Venus, a person may begin to work with some aspect of
property design or renovation, or with his interest in psychology. If the
movement is from H6 to H5 then he will retain his vocational sense and
whatever way he expresses his creativity, he will perceive it as a means
of helping others.
a transit of Mars to the 5th House a
person usually feels a stronger than usual need to express himself and
thereby assert his individuality. If a person has found an effective way
of channelling his creative energies - and this may include promoting the
creative works and activities of others then this is likely to be a very
productive period; if not it is likely to be a time of considerable anger
born out of frustration. The sexual urge tends to be strong at this time
and this too may lead to anger and aggression if it has no outlet and is

5th House, the natural ruler of which is the Sun, is a hospitable environment
for Mars and usually much is achieved in these years. Should a person fail
to find an effective outlet, however, he will feel extremely frustrated.

person usually comes to a greater awareness of his own creative potential
because during this time he is likely to feel inclined to experiment with
hitherto unexperienced forms of self-expression. This transit tends to
increase self-confidence and make a person feel more comfortable with
the idea that individuality confers the right of self-expression This
transit can give both sexes the confidence to take on parenthood and in a
woman’s case the more relaxed, confident state of mind engendered by
this transit may improve her chances of conceiving.
Jupiter moves into the 5th House by progression, it enables a person to
achieve a more comprehensive appreciation of his individuality and
creative ability. As with the transit, Jupiter's movement through H5 by
progression tends to relax the hold of habituality and make a person more
disposed to try the new. Childbirth may have a part to play in this
may also be a time of spiritual growth born out of an enhanced awareness
of the ability of an individual to channel energies from a higher level.
When Saturn transits the 5th House, a
person is required to focus upon the ways in which he has expressed his
individuality up to that point. Transiting Saturn
moves into H5 from H4, and during its passage through the 4th House,
there is likely to have been considerable introspection. The new
understanding a person has of himself will require him to make changes or
to discipline himself to complete some creative project, which confirms
that he is continuing to move forward.
In cases where re-assessment is
required then a person may experience creative blocks. Women attempting to
conceive may experience difficulty if there are any unconscious fears or
misgivings about bringing another life into being.
Yet this is not always a problematic
time: if a person has given attention to the matter of creative expression
earlier in his life then the discipline and dedication conferred by
transiting Saturn is likely to make this a very constructive period. A
woman may decide that this is the time to take on the responsibilities of

dark shadow over the house of the Sun and the years during which Saturn
occupies H5 may be a bleak and sterile period. It is nevertheless one,
which offers a significant challenge and the person who is able to work
through the self-doubt, and impotence, which is so often experienced at
this time, will do so by confronting the reason - indicated by the sign
and house placement of natal Saturn - and will emerge a productive person
with an awareness of his individuality.
transit of Uranus to the 5th House marks a time when exposure to new
experiences affords a person the opportunity to arrive at a new
understanding of his uniqueness and his creative potential.
Uranus brings situations designed to shake up a person and make him use
his energy in ways, which hitherto have been unfamiliar to him. As a
result he will be more alive and more in touch with his being ness. Highly
charged sexual relationships which offer experience rather than longevity
frequently have a part to play during this period of a person’s life by
making a contribution towards the raising and the freeing of his creative

protracted and usually less intense. Although, the years in which progressing Uranus
makes direct contact with any tenanting planets will be highly charged.
transit of Neptune to the 5th House can be inspirational but it tends to
erode the sense of individuality and the desire for personal recognition,
which are such piquant spurs to creative activity. In consequence a
transit of Neptune to H5 inclines a person to lose himself in the creative
works and activities of others.

spiritual awareness gained through sublime experiences with art, music or

energy becomes easier to ground, that a person is able to focus himself
sufficiently well to be able to give expression to this new awareness.
Neptune progresses through the 5th House a person is given the opportunity
to understand that God expresses Himself through the individuality of each
of us, and to better understand the distinction between egotism and
intimate relationships, which form at this time, are frequently idealistic
and other-regarding: the person with Neptune in the 5th House attempts to
put everything he understands himself to be in the service of his partner.
This is one of the most common ways that a person will give expression to
the desire to make his life and energy useful which tends to be a
characteristic of Neptune when operating through H5.
person whose creativity is well developed may come to see himself as a
channel for energies from a higher level. Although Neptune’s progression
through H5 may produce periods of delusion about self and others,
especially if H5 is tenanted, a person who has experienced this
progression tends to have a sense, no matter how hazy or ill-defined, that
his life has a purpose and a significance.

quality of life for a sexual relationship is too high.
transit of Pluto to H5 requires a person to assess his sexual behavior and
to consider the extent to which he uses up creative energy in an attempt

Pluto moves through the 5th House by progression, a person is in a period
of his life when the way he uses his creative energies is subject to
fundamental change. Integral to this process is an enhanced
understanding of what it means to be an individual and of the nature of
the power available to a well-developed individual.
5th House is one of the Houses of Relative consciousness and it is
through seeing the effect that he produces on another that a person finds
a gauge against which to measure his effectiveness and potency. By the
same token it is his experiences with others, which will bring him to an
awareness of how lack of autonomy and self-mastery erode his
individuality. Becoming aware of these areas in which he is eroded is
usually a very conspicuous stage in the transformative process, especially
if the inner planets or Saturn are to be found in H5. In this case
circumstances are likely to make him aware that emotional complexes are
causing him to use his creative energy in an inadequate or even

time when the energy and the spirits are both high. At this time a person
tends to feel a sense of well being and enthusiasm for life which may
incline him to seek to express himself creatively or through some activity
which gives him feed-back from others. When the Moon transits H5 a person
usually seeks to elicit from others confirmation of his individual worth.
two or so years, which is the average time that it takes the progressed
Moon to move through the 5th House, make up one of the lighter more
expansive periods of the 28 year cycle. At this time energy levels tend to
be high and there is a renewed zest for living after the heaviness and
introspection, which are such common features of the progressed Moon’s
4th House period. Whilst the Moon is in H5 a person frequently experiments
with new ways of expressing himself. Whether it is through one of the fine
arts, through intellectual activity or through the launch of a new
business venture, the purpose of these new directions is to find an
effective channel for his abundant energy, which will also earn him
recognition from others. Relationships, which form at this time, tend to
be highly charged sexual experiences, which may or may not find a place in

they are capable of withstanding the pressures and preoccupation with
work, which characterise the Moon’s 6th House period. That
many do not is an indication that the relationships, which a person
tends to seek out when the Moon moves through H5, are those which offer
sexual experience and excitement rather than security.
certain creative activities undertaken during this period when there is an
abundance of energy will be dropped as the Moon reaches the end of H5.
Those that are taken through will be those forms through which a person
feels he can express himself honestly and effectively. The passage of the
Moon through H5 may turn a woman’s attention, sometimes obsessively so,
to the matter of having a child.
