In Astrology, the fourth house commonly represents your home and those that dwell there with you. The fourth house is ruled by Cancer – the ‘mother’ of the Zodiac – and the Moon – representing emotion. Family life, history, traditions, motherhood, comfort and retreat can all be associated with this House.
The sign and planets in the fourth house of your star chart can reveal much about the kind of environment you require to provide a personalized “home base” for yourself.In creating a home, we are not only building our brick-and-mortar dwelling, but creating a sanctuary of comfort.
Our house is where we can be most comfortable with our true selves, ditching the niceties and social norms we stick to in our day-to-day outside lives. The Fourth House is where we feel secure – or where we should feel secure.
