Importance of fifth house in Vedic astrology

The fifth house of horoscope in Vedic astrology is referred to as the house of pleasure. Often time’s pleasure is the result of a creative act. The simple act of creating is, essentially, giving of oneself and making something. The fifth house of horoscope does speak to procreation and children, but it also addresses the creation of art and culture. The creative life is one from which we can derive much personal pleasure and self satisfaction. Do I like this? Does it make me feel good? Does it bring me pleasure? The answers therein are the domain of the fifth house of horoscope.
The fifth house of horoscope represents creativity. Creation is an essential quality of the divine spark. The process of manifestation for which God assumed objective form was procreation, and as such, creativity is an essential component of divinity itself. As the result of this house has far-reaching effects for the individual’s course of life, it is considered a very auspicious house. Any connection between this house and the cardinal houses is conducive to great benefits.
Taking this pleasure principle a step further, one can give it a more human face, even two faces. Romance and romantic affairs, both emotional pleasures can be gained in many ways, and yet another way addressed by this house is gambling. While this implies a financial risk, it can also be viewed as the willingness to take a risk-on love, with money or in life. A gut risk in the hopes of a pleasurable outcome is how the fifth house of horoscope sees it. This house is actually quite rich with pleasures since it also lords over fun, games and hobbies. Life is more than just being or doing, it also includes finding.-finding the pleasures in the acts in which we engage.
Children as a source of pleasure are also important in the fifth house. This brings us back to creativity, since through our children; we create an extension of ourselves and then watch it grow. Giving our children all the good we had (and have), and then same is certainty a pleasurable pursuit. How will this manifest itself/what form of pleasure and emotional release is best for our children? Music, dance, thetre, art, science.literature-these fancies are for them and for us. Play for the purpose of emotional enrichment and pure pleasure is what the fifth house of horoscope is all about.
The fifth house of horoscope is ruled by the sign Leo and planet the Sun.
