The 4th House In Astrology & Tarot : Emotional Foundations

The 4th house rules your home, family, and foundation. It can rule your home itself structurally, like the kind of home you like and the place or area you’d like to live, as well as the environment within the home. The 4th is where we go when we collapse. It rules home and family, ancestors and homeland. It provides a literal retreat. The 4th house is on as axis with the 10th house (the exact opposite house). There is an inevitable conflict between the needs of the soul and the demands of public life. From the 4th we’re called to serve society in our 10th house role. This axis is also a very spiritual axis, and the 4th house shows the spiritual foundation upon which you build. Cancer and the Moon rule the 4th house, and this house is an angular house.

The fourth house is also the house of our childhood and our parents childhood and so-on.  It represents the circle of life and size. It’s the house of what makes us into who we are as adults and it’s our past that we like to keep private.  This is where we can find “Skeletons in the closet“. It represents resources used to rear us.

Do you wonder if you will ever find and own your dream home? In tarot, there are several cards which refer to property matters and moving house. These are a few cards based on my experience as a reader.

4 wandsThe four of wands

A happy scene indeed. This bright card foretells that you are about to set down new roots and you will be more than happy in your new home. Good energy and a fabulous neighbours. What more can you ask for? A card connected with celebrations also, it likely to indicate a   house warming party too.

The Empress This card is often associated with pregnancy and even financial abundance. But I find she also pops up in a reading when someone is about to make a move of house and settle down in a lovely location, more often than not close to the countryside, or even  own a house that has a large garden (the Empress is linked to Nature). She does look comfortable too, doesn’t she? So expect to feel this way in your new home. It could be a move that lasts you a life time.

3 pentaclesThree of Pentacles: Three people stand outside of a property, they are deep in discussion.

The discussion could involve changes to the property structure. Work needs to be done. Renovations to be carried out.

Yes, a house move will happen. But expect to spend money on improvements and these may not necessarily be what you are aware of at the point of sale. Make sure your budget allows for unforeseen extras.This card can also indicate future expansion of your living space. Adding extra rooms or extending a room.
