An in-depth guide to what 4th House Astrology means and reveals about you
The 4th House is about your family and where you live.
It's the essence of who you are, your foundation and your sense of self.

The 4th House's Natural Astrology Sign: Cancer
Characteristics of the 4th House: Your 4th house reveals what your childhood was like, your home life, and your family (especially your parents). It shows what life was like for you growing up, what you learned there, and any ethnic or racial qualities you might have.
It can tell you what you will inherit from your family, including money.
Your 4th House also reveals what your later years (senior/elderly) in life will be like, and what your retirement will be like.
Your 4th House gives meaning to who you are at your core. It's the very roots of your being. You can think of it as your soul if you like, but much of who you are was shaped from how you perceived your experiences as a child. These experiences are ruled by your fourth house.
