Natal Moon in the 5th House

Having your Moon in the house of love, recreation and children is quite a good natal placement. The house is traditionally ruled by Leo and the Sun; thus the Moon is illuminated and very active, while also can behave in a rather theatrical way. As the 5th house rules children, the presence of the Moon makes the native rather fertile. In case that the Moon is also located in a fruitful sign such as Taurus, Cancer, Pisces, Scorpio or Sagittarius, the native has even more possibilities of having children. The Moon in the 5th house, in most cases, gives a female first child. In any case, the child will have a very strong Cancer/Moon emphasis in its natal chart and will be very sentimental and emotional.

This planet in 5th House is here very related to private life. The most important thing is that romantic relationships are very dependent on what is felt, on sensitivity, sometimes on mood, and therefore there may be some differences of opinion and conflicts with loved ones, or changing affections (with bad aspects), or good emotional understanding (with good aspects). The person also tends to bring a lot of tenderness, romanticism, and therefore originality (less apparent if the Moon is in Capricorn or Virgo). The imagination is great and therefore artistically and aesthetically favorable and creative and generally this favors any leisure activity in contact with others or the crowd. 

With good aspects of Pluto, there is a greater faculty of listening at the affective level and also good possibilities of reconstruction in the event of difficulties,

  • with those of Neptune, it is inspiration and creativity that are more marked but also the ability to positive what is felt,
  • with those of Uranus, there is a greater need for independence but also originality in relationships and creativity and ease of communication,
  • with those of Saturn, this strengthens stability and constancy, seriousness and sincerity,
  • with those of Jupiter there is more enthusiasm, optimism, ability to bring harmony,
  • with those of Mars it is the ability to energize relationships in a positive way,
  • with those of Venus it improves affective and emotional balance,
  • with those of Mercury, it makes it easier to communicate,
  • with those of the Sun, it is a good general balance with the opposite sex in particular and the ability to be conciliatory on the relationship level.

With negative aspects of Pluto, there is difficulty in living the lunar desires in a stable way, mixing worry with the intensity of the emotions, and therefore there is a risk of questioning in the affective field,

  • with those of Neptune, it is the hypersensitivity which is responsible for a lack of balance and an excessive idealism but on the other hand a lot of inspiration and creativity,
  • with those of Uranus, the risk is the lack of cooperation and the difficulty to communicate in a stable way, not easy either at the level of pregnancies with risk of unforeseen events,
  • with those of Saturn, it is the difficulty to find fulfillment and the fact of having sometimes too heavy responsibilities at the level of children,
  • with those of Jupiter, it will rather be a lack ofbalance in the desires and a certain recklessness,
  • with those of Mars, it is the risk of tension because of too much reactivity, with those of Venus, it is the lack of balance on a daily basis between feelings and Emotional,
  • with those of Mercury, we will have too much nervousness and a lack of verbal control,
  • with those of the Sun, it is a difficulty of adaptation in the behavior vis-a-vis the other sex in affective.

As always, it is necessary to make the synthesis of the aspects to the Moon taking into account the sign of the Moon and that of the house 5 which is the backdrop of the way in which this domain is lived.

In love affairs, but also in your love for children, you are extremely emotional. They are always looking for happiness and emotional self-development. Being together with children always plays a major role. Perhaps you are too keen on having fun and being the center of attention. Mood swings and inconsistency are common in romantic relationships. Keep your intense need to feel loved and needed under control as much as possible. You are a self-indulgent person with a lot of charm. Fluctuating emotions could hinder your creativity.

When it comes to choosing a career, you attach particular importance to theatrical, self-promotional and creative aspects of your work. You enjoy teaching and working with children. You may have high expectations and a tendency to dramatize everything you experience.
