4th House

The private life, safe space, or comfort zone
Home, domestic affairs, parents, ancestors
How & what you keep protected and secluded from the world

The next 30° of sky that become visible over the eastern horizon from 6-8 hours after birth (or from the moment a chart is drawn up) is called the Fourth House. Called “Genitor” or “Father” in Latin, this house is all about your home and roots. It covers the private home life or comfort zone. The fourth house also includes your private self, that which isn’t revealed by the first house persona. Any planet that may occupy this house exerts its influence on your private life and sense of true home. If there are no planets in this house, it may indicate that you don’t spend a lot of conscious energy in this part of your life, that things in this sector flow without needing extra effort, or that you aren’t working on major life lessons in this area during your current lifetime.
