Pluto in the 5th House
You possess powerful creative impulses, and you might invest much energy and passion into the creative arts, romance, or child-rearing. You take much pride in, and invest much of your ego into, whatever it is you produce. Romance for you needs to be intense, passionate, and deeply intimate - nothing superficial or light attracts.
You have an "all or nothing" attitude in love. If you are not "owning" this attitude, then you may be meeting Pluto energies through your lovers, and thus attracting intense, controlling, or passionate romantic partners. A deep-seated fear of loss or betrayal can be behind any jealous, obsessive, or controlling behavior in fifth house areas, including romantic involvements, child-rearing, and creative endeavors.
Your attitude towards play, entertainment, and recreation is also intense - rarely lighthearted. While you may yearn to throw your soul into your creative endeavors, fear might prevent you from doing so completely.
