“Home is where the heart is.”
—Pliny the Elder
The fourth house represents our home and can reveal our state of mind and inner feelings. Matri means mother, and this house expresses our relationship to the mother. Our sense of being nurtured and supported is also seen here. Benefic planets, such as the Moon or Venus, can indicate contentment and happiness when placed in the fourth house.
The fourth house governs education. This house also shows our fixed assets; such as vehicles, houses and real estate.
This a moksha house and an interest in self-realization and spiritual enlightenment can be expressed through this house.
The Sun (Surya) represents both the ego and the Soul in an individual's chart.
