Astrology: The Fourth House

Updated on February 25, 2012

The astrological Fourth House is all about family and the relationships at play there, but it's so much deeper than that. It's not just the way you interact today, as an adult, but also how these relationships are formed and developed from birth through adulthood. That can involve a whole lotta karma on numerous levels, as I'm sure you're already well aware. This house can make or break you, psychologically speaking, and this is where you'll often find a great big mess in the chart's of common psychopaths and other lovely people. That said, most of us have a relatively normal placement, thank goodness! To learn more, please keep reading!


Mommy Issues

Got issues with your overbearing mother? Or perhaps she's the best mother on earth and you couldn't have asked for a better relationship? Most of that is determined here, in this particular house. Nurture is the theme of this placement and whether or not you got your fill of it can often be seen, clear as day, in your astrology chart. Daddy issues could be seen here as well, but this is often viewed as the mother's connection, given that the house is ruled by Cancer.


Are you someone who enjoys being around family? Or someone who would prefer to roam the world alone? The fourth house has a big say in that, and if you were someone who didn't get on well with certain, or all, members of your household, take a good look at your chart to see if you can find out why that is -- you usually can, and the experience was usually intended to help you evolve on some spiritual level. If you've got a very strong placement here, but have decided you are better off without the family you grew up with, you will probably start a new family with deep, deep roots elsewhere.


Karma, karma, karma. This is the house where we often get what's coming back round to us. Whether it's good or bad, this is where the relationships of past lives come shining through in the present to help us correct past mistakes, or be on the receiving end of someone paying it forward as a thanks. Karma is not always a bad thing, but it is always a force to be reckoned with, and this house will play a role in how we cope with it. Remember, if you do not deal well with it this time round, the lesson will likely only repeat itself until you do.
