The fourth house is commonly known as the house of family and home, which includes basically everything that involves these two things. Of course, these two things are not always as simple as they seem. Anyone with a family can tell you that it’s often hard to get along with one another. The fourth house should be able to make it a little easier for you and your family to get along with one another.
One of the big aspects of the fourth house astrology is the physical house. A person’s house is highly symbolic of many things. One of the most important things that a house can represent is safety and protection. You are generally safe within the walls of your own house. It keeps the bad out, and allows the good family members to come in.
A person’s home is also what they make it to be. If you do not keep up with home repairs, then there’s a pretty good chance that your house will crumble before someone who does keep up with their house’s will. This is also the way that many family relationships work. If you do not keep up with your family member’s lives, then it is likely that you will not have the best relationship with them.
One of the things that the 4th house can remind us of is to keep in touch with our family members. Maybe it’s not all that important to call your second cousin every weekend, but you should make sure to call your parents and brothers and sisters when you have a chance.
From the minute you were born these were the people that were there with you. Nothing can take that away from you. That doesn’t mean that we can just take this bond for granted. We should cherish the time that we have with our family.
Another big theme in the fourth house is tradition. While you may want to modernize, there are some things that just never get old. Of course there are new things that you need to learn to pass onto your children, like using new ways of technology.
There are also the important things that can be used no matter what year it is, like teaching your kids how to drive or celebrating the holidays in the tradition you were taught. It is important to always keep improving, but it’s not a bad idea to stick with some of your family’s old values as well.
