The fifth house in the natal chart is connected to dating and romance, representing the initial stages of a blossoming courtship. According to professional astrologer Luci Alfano, this means that the fifth house can provide insight into what you need to feel swooned by a potential romantic partner. 

"If the people you have dated do not bring that romantic energy that you need, it's probably because they are not aligning with your fifth house," Alfano explained in a TikTok video, sharing that you should check "the sign that rules your fifth and the planets for more information on what you need when it comes to romance in your relationships."


As a relationship deepens, it graduates from the fifth and moves to the seventh, which is tied to commitments, long-term relationships, and marriage. But the fifth house can teach us about our dating style, what partners we attract in the short term and how we fall in love.
