Natal Neptune in the 5th House

When Neptune resides in the 5th house, its effects on the native’s love life, children, and recreation habits are quite foggy. The planet may create a lot of secrecy in the 5th house matters; on the other hand, there are possibilities of receiving immense joy. Even if it is induced through fantasies and delusions, and does not represent reality.

Before speaking about the possible traits that this mysterious planet can create, we should mention that the aspects from other planets to Neptune play a very important role. Neptune is a mirror covered in fog, reflecting a very big amount of the energies that it receives from other planets. Thus, a Neptune with positive aspects from other planets can function perfectly and resonate all the good traits of the aspecting planets. On the other hand, the difficult aspects can make Neptune function as a malefic; and even worse, a passive and receptive one.

The 5th house is known to be the house of joy and recreation, and the presence of Neptune creates an individual who knows how to appreciate art. Neptune will make the native love dancing, and in the horoscope of a woman, will make her movements be rather seductive and slow. One would literally observe the water waves flowing through such a person because their body can melt in the rhythm of the music. There can also be a talent in poetry, while with other aspects present they can develop abilities with musical instruments.

As the fifth house rules one’s children, the presence of Neptune will give to the native’s first child the character of a dreamer. The child’s mind will be constantly roaming in fantasies and they can be very careless, even passive towards their own lives. The child is very gifted and creative and has tendencies to become an artist. They are emotional and sensitive, while also can develop psychic abilities and be highly intuitive.

Neptune in the 5th house can create secrecy around the native’s children. If he is a man, he may have a child and not knowing about it, while if she is a woman, things can get even more complicated. She could be unsure about who is the father, or the biological father could be different than her spouse. This aspect might also signify artificial insemination from an unknown donor. In addition, if Neptune is adversely aspected by Mars, Uranus or some other malefic, then there are possibilities of miscarriage or abortions. If you have such kind of aspects, you are strongly advised not to indulge in substances usage, as they might both bring an unwanted pregnancy or abort a desired one. In addition, this aspect might even signify adopting a child.

People with Neptune in the 5th house can have more than one sexual partner during the same period. Their love life can be consciously very liberal or even totally careless. Such a placement creates a lot of secrets concerning the native’s sexual affairs. Nevertheless, the native is not a sexual predator. The gentle nature of Neptune is bringing a lot of romanticism in his affairs too; it is just that Neptune’s fog does not allow certain borders to define his relationships. This is the reason why it is easy for people with such an aspect to date many people simultaneously; each affair is a different beautiful story, and they perceive all of them as if they are a different person in each one.

With adverse aspects, Neptune in the 5th house may be victimized. The native will frequently fall in love with the wrong person and be torn down while still idealizing that person for a long time afterward. The blue planet gives characteristics of martyrdom and masochism; the native is willing to suffer and even accept anything from the person he is in love with. Also, this natal placement can give victim/savior relationships, sometimes with a rather dramatic and dreamy atmosphere that reminds of movies. They tend to attract chaotic and unusual partners, and with them comes general confusion in most matters of the house. If you have this aspect, be careful not to fall in love with someone’s faults, instead of his virtues. Such an aspect may easily make you attracted to alcoholics and junkies, people who have problems concerning their sexuality and physically crippled. Again, the victim/savior pattern can be triggered and arise a need to nurture.

When someone has Neptune in the 5th house, he should frequently take off those pink-colored glasses that filter the perception of the world and his love life, even if he later will wear them again. Indeed, many times such a perception can make someone very happy and empower the house’s affairs. But a stable basis is necessary, and he should constantly observe reality; otherwise, he would just keep idealizing whatever comes forth on his road.
