Natal Jupiter in the 4th House

Jupiter is known to be the greater benefic, illuminating any house it is natally placed. When it is positioned in the 4th house of a natal chart, it will generally bring a happy childhood in a large and prosperous family. As the 4th house is traditionally ruled by Cancer and the Moon, the mother will play a very important role in the native’s life, providing him with a lot of love and security. Jupiter in the 4th house signifies a large family; there are possibilities of having a lot of siblings or living in a large house with a lot of family members; grandparents, uncles and aunts, cousins and even distant relatives.

This planet in the 4th house tends to make us adopt a protective behavior in the home, but it is benevolent, liberal and generous (with good aspects) or too excessive, moralistic, or materialistic (with negative aspects). On the other hand, the home or the family can have a preponderant influence on social integration or at least on the possibilities of fulfillment in this area. Hospital trends are often quite marked and we generally like to receive at home, and live there in a healthy and natural way. Having children can also be very important with this position. Any good aspect to Jupiter will help to improve relations with the family and especially the parent of the same sex.

The positive aspects of Pluto will give capacities of advice but also of regeneration in this family domain, those of Neptune will amplify generosity, those of Uranus will also give more capacities to advise, guide, etc…, those of Saturn will allow to be sufficiently realistic between ambitions and reality, those of Mars will make you dynamic and enthusiastic, those of Venus will allow balance and the fact of feeling good at home, those of Mercury will make you more convincing and an organizer at home, those of Moon will also help with a good family balance, and those of the Sun will at the same time make you more protective but with an ability to direct things.

The difficult aspects of Pluto will make people more moralistic at home, those of Neptune a little careless and too generous, those of Uranus will lead to a desire for independence that is sometimes badly perceived, those of Saturn will create a brake on fulfillment and a gap between desires and reality, those of Mars will make behavior excessive, those of Venus will make excessive but in desires with a tendency to want to profit too much, with those of Mercury the risk is to lack realism and judgment, with those of Moon beware of excessive expenses for the home, with those of the Sun there will be a tendency to want to direct everything to the home and to be sometimes a little intolerant there.

As always, it is necessary to synthesize the aspects to Jupiter taking into account the sign of Jupiter and that of the 4th house which is the backdrop to the way in which this domain is lived.
