As always, Jupiter residing in a natal chart house brings very favorable effects to all matters ruled by the house. In this case, as the 5th house is connected with joy, children, love and sex, Jupiter’s presence will bring a great amount of happiness through everything that falls in this category.
The Grand Benefic can bring a lot of children, with the first of them having a rather strong Sagittarius/Jupiter emphasis in its natal chart. The native is very fond of children and will show a great deal of love towards them, also receiving a lot of affection back. He will adore playing with them and they really like his funny and warm character. Usually, the native as a parent figure will educate his children well, providing them also high philosophic views on ethics and morals, religion and the law. The children will develop a just and fair character, inspired by the native’s own example.
Jupiter in the fifth house expands the native’s creativity. Generally, if Jupiter is alone in the house, there might be a lot of procrastination and he will never become a great artists. If there are other planets also present, or Jupiter is receiving very positive aspects from Venus, Neptune or Uranus, he will be a lot more productive and invest his time in developing his self-expression into art. In case that the Sun or the Moon support Jupiter, there are possibilities of fame coming his way.
Fun is a very important priority in such a person’s life. Jupiter will give him a strong sense of humor, and draws him towards recreational activities that promote joy. This could be literally anything, from partying to sports, from gathering friends to visiting movies; everything that brings joy and laughter will play a strong role in his reality.
Jupiter in the 5th also likes gambling, and indeed can bring gains; especially if he is well-aspected. Good aspects for gambling are sextiles and trines to Venus and Uranus, especially if one of them is residing in the 2nd house. In addition, the same good luck will follow the native if his 2nd house cusp falls on Sagittarius. On the contrary, when Jupiter is adversely aspected by Mars, Uranus or Pluto, the native should be really careful with this passion. There might be some minor gains, but as Jupiter is the most expansive planet he will make this activity so frequent that will definitely create problems, even of losing properties. In case there is even one such harsh aspect to malefics, the best advice is to not indulge with gambling at all, because Jupiter can really overdo it with this matter.
Under the same rules fall all speculation business choices too. With Jupiter located in the 5th house, one can have great gains; on the other hand these gains can create a thirst of even more. This thirst can cloud the native’s mind, and when a transit triggers some dormant square aspect to a malefic he might lose a lot. So, always examine the natal condition of Jupiter in the 5th house before letting sheer luck decide on your wealth.
The love life of a person with Jupiter in the fifth house will be also very active. He will fall in love very times, change a lot of partners and choose depending on how much fun he has near a person. This planet does not give a lot of seriousness in his affairs; the native will adore flirting, will have a rather relaxed approach towards relationship and will indulge in a lot of casual sex. Jupiter gives an internal need to date a lot of people, but not becoming closely related. It is only after finding the correct person as a partner, that the priorities of the native change: The next step is having children, and probably a lot of them. Many times, the native concentrates fully on his children, forgetting to give the necessary love towards his partner.
This placement is one of the best a person can have, if joy is a priority in his life. He can be constantly discovering new levels of happiness, without ever getting bored of having fun. Natal Jupiter in the 5th house can make someone a real hedonist, the type that everyone wants to hang out with because he illuminates all the fun situations with his presence. The only thing you should guard from if you have this placement is concentrating on this aspect of your life so much, that you do not care about anything else than your serotonin and endorphin.
