Real Houses
The Real Fifth House Wby Kevin B. Burk
hat do sex, the stock market, games, entertainment, bribery, creative expression, children, and real estate agents have in common? You can  nd them all in the Fifth House. By all accounts, the Fifth House is all
about amusement, but there’s more to it than that. Games have winners and losers. Risk is exciting, and winning is a rush; but when you lose, you have to live with the consequences.  e Fifth House is a nice place to visit, but you wouldn’t want to live
there. It’s time to meet the real Fifth House.
The Fifth House in the Natal Chart: Recreation and Procreation
Traditionally, the Fifth House is the house of “good fortune.” It’s always enjoyed a reputation for being a place of fun and enjoyment. Pleasure is a quality that links the various activities that live in the Fifth House.
 e other linking quality is creation, because the Fifth
House relates to all forms of creation, including both re(creation) and pro(creation).
First and foremost, the Fifth House is the house of sex. Sex, of course, embodies both recreation and procreation. Love a airs and casual romantic relationships relate to the recreational aspects, and children relate to the procreational aspects.
