When the warm rays of Venus shine through the 4th house of a natal chart, the basis of one’s existence is illuminated. The childhood years, the domestic life, the atmosphere that prevails in one’s home are receiving the planet’s positive vibrations and become areas of peace and comfort. This placement can create a house personality; such a native will prefer to stay at home than to go outside. The benefic planet gives great inspiration to the native to decorate their home; their everyday surroundings are considered very important and natives with Venus in the 4th house adore investing their time to make them look beautiful. They are very emotionally attached to them and love bringing their friends so that their home becomes a venue filled with joy and happiness.
This configuration tends to increase the taste for home life, in which the person can have or want a cozy home where they can receive their friends and people who feel good and comfortable. One of the main problems in the 4th house is the home and the attitudes of the people in the house (or in the places where they feel at home), as well as our past, our origins, our ancestry and memories. Therefore, this position, particularly when activated by some transit, can trigger a series of memories.
Having good taste and being creative in matters related to the home can be a trend, and this impulse can often have been inherited from one’s family, from one’s roots. There is a certain influence of one of the parents in the lives of those who have this position, and this can compromise or favor romantic relationships, since parents can always be a basis for comparison with their partners.
Venus, in this sector, can indicate a beneficial relationship with the father figure (or mother, the letter) as well as the people who live with you in your home. The relationship with the family can be more harmonious and stable, with a differentiated feeling of comfort. It also facilitates real estate transactions throughout life, such as buying and selling real estate, especially if Venus is in harmonic contact with Saturn or Jupiter.
If other planets or aspects do not compromise this position, it is also likely that you had a good childhood and that creation was associated with delicate and artistic things or appreciating one’s surroundings. They can also be great hosts, positively catering to their guests. House 4 can inspire energies linked to a sense of belonging, so it is important for people with this position that their guests feel at home.
Despite this, it is important to pay attention and understand inherited traditionalisms that, if not well analyzed, can limit personal expansion.
This planet in 4th house will give particular importance to the emotional in the family environment, because the native has a need to live the emotional especially in the home and therefore to find a balance there (the aspects will tell if he succeeds or if he has to fight for it). There can therefore be a great attachment to the family, or to one of its members (sometimes a rejection with bad aspects) which can influence the future emotional life of the native. So we can say here that family life and affective life are particularly linked. On the other hand, this will give him a taste for beauty and aesthetics, and therefore for the decoration and layout of his interior. Generally he will quite like receiving people at home and it is in his home that he will mainly express his feelings (whether positive or negative).
