Natal Sun in the 4th House

With the Sun in the 4th house of the natal chart, an individual considers his family affairs like a basis during all his life. The native’s biggest dream is to create a big family, own a big house and become the respected leader among them, connecting all of his kin under his presence. Such a placement creates a person who loves traditions and will somehow invest efforts in preserving them. As the fourth house is responsible for roots, the home and the family where the individual is born, having the brightest object in the sky in this house illuminates all affairs that it rules. This placement tends to bring prosperity in the latter parts of one’s life, as he chooses to progress slowly yet steadily.

This planet in 4th house will therefore give a lot of importance to the family unit and the home, which will therefore have a particular influence on existence. The native has ambition in these areas, with a need to achieve it, but he can also seek to impose his will and his authority (depending on the sign), and especially his organization… In fact this are the solid roots he needs in this area. The father was able to play a major role and represent an ideal (with good aspects) or a model from which he wants to move away, or an absence (with negative aspects), hence the risk of tension or power struggles or difficulty in finding their place and identity within the home.

The good aspects of Pluto will strengthen the ability to fight and transform your roots in a positive way, those of Neptune will accentuate the possibility of finding your ideal there, those of Uranus will make you more independent but with an ability to direct the things at home, those of Saturn will give more stability and the search for security, those of Jupiter will amplify the chances of success and fulfillment, those of Mars will push to act to concretize ambitions, those of Venus (conjunction ) will accentuate the need for passion and creation within the home, those of Mercury (conjunction) will amplify the need to communicate, those of the Moon will bring a better general balance and a more balanced relationship with the parent of the same sex.

The negative aspects of Pluto will give rise to risks of revolt of power relations or questioning or even emotional loss, those of Neptune will bring too much idealism and a lack of realism with the risk of family estrangement, those of Uranus will create tensions and discussions of the fact that the native will be too independent and hostile to any constraint and discipline, those of Saturn will reduce the ability to adapt and may bring dissatisfaction or misunderstanding at home or in family, those of Jupiter will make the native too authoritarian with a need to direct things too much those of Mars will make them lack patience and flexibility, hence discussions and tensions, those of the Moon will be able to create a gap between desires and family reality (the moon being analogous to the hearth).

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