The fourth house in astrology is associated with the home, family (specifically the father) and property. In horary astrology it is known as the ‘end of the matter’. The 4th house is associated with parents and nurturing. It is your ‘safe space’ and most private place of your horoscope. It is a zone of sanctuary and where you feel you most belong. It is the land of your ancestors. The co-significator of this house is the zodiac sign of Cancer
