Natal Neptune in the 4th House

When the mysterious planet Neptune sheds his shades on the house of one’s origins, his childhood and roots can be rather blurred even in his own mind. Growing up is not easy with this aspect, and a curious fact is that the native will usually bury his childhood deep into his subconscious while growing up. It will literally seem like another person’s life that he once watched in movies, and will just remember fragments and scenes. Neptune in the 4th house can be rather difficult for the native’s early years, as it makes at least one parent absent, metaphorically or even literally. In many occasions, the native will be a child from a divorced family.

This planet in 4th house gives a strong notion of dependence on the family environment and the atmosphere that reigns with the parents (being a child) and then at home. All behavior will therefore be a function of what the person feels at home, which can push them to total osmosis (in the case of good aspects) or to be the victim of deception or to flee a situation (with difficult aspects), which which in this case often has repercussions at the psychological level. Yet the need to live collectively is rather sought at the starting point. There may sometimes be ambiguity or uncertainty regarding ancestry or certain family ties (especially with negative aspects to affective planets).

With positive aspects of Saturn, it enhances the possibility of finding stability and better control of what is felt, with those of Jupiter, there is more generosity or spiritual osmosis in the focus, with those of Mars, the person knows how to act to create harmony, with those of Venus, it is easier to live the affective side according to our ideal, with those of Mercury, behavior is more a function of inspiration and intuition, with those of the Moon, there is always a lot of sensitivity, but with more ease in finding balance, with those of the Sun, the person knows how to act and put his will to balance the atmosphere in the home.

With negative aspects of Saturn, morale is easily fluctuating at home and too vulnerable, with those of Jupiter there is a lack of realism and a lag in the way of living with others, with those of Mars it is a bit the same thing but more in relation to the way of acting, with those of Venus, one can experience affective situations of the “remote” type or ambiguous concerning the family plan, with those of Mercury, it is the difficulty of understanding in this area, with those of the Moon, there is hypersensitivity and therefore too much influence from the family plan and the mother, with those of the Sun, we can experience situations where we feel foreign or not in osmosis with the family but also in relation to the father.

As always, it is necessary to synthesize the aspects to Neptune taking into account the sign of the 4th house which is the backdrop of how this area is experienced.
