Having your North Node in the 4th house of the natal chart automatically also means that the South Node is located in the 10th house. This natal placement of the nodes indicates a heavy emphasis on matters concerning one’s home, family, roots, and tradition. In addition, the axis shows that your life lesson also involves your attitude towards your career and poses dilemmas between domestic life and work. As the Lunar Nodes indicate Karmic debts and connections with previous lifetimes, the native who has the North Node in the 4th house must concentrate on the creation of family, his real estate property, and even agriculture during this incarnation.
The North Node in in the 4th house asks them to accept the protection energy of the hearth. Their search for protection is “naturally” oriented towards a masculine form of action and control.
The path in the 4th house will require them to enter into a form of receptivity, which will gradually have to replace their need to control their life with the social situation. They will have to “heal” themselves from the deep belief of being alone and insecure, a belief that pushed them to work relentlessly for their survival. At the time when they will no longer be able to make their professional life work, nor to climb the ladder, they will often be able to realize that their situation, objectively, does not threaten them in the least in the world. This will, moreover, for many of them, last for a long time that they have nothing real to fear. They will be objectively in a situation of protection inherited from their professional or family situation.
In fact, life asks them to no longer worry about their careers, nor the heights, but to ask themselves to seek deep within themselves their roots, the roots that connect them to the living, to the earth, to them in depth. They have a path to take that goes from “the belief of having to survive in the outside world” to “feeling alive from within”. The playground allowing them to experience the fact of feeling alive will be their hearth, their “home”, where they will be able to learn little by little to feel good.
They may have to accept a form of protection in their home which they had previously refused, for lack of trust in others, for fear of losing mastery and control of their lives. Their path is to accept letting go of the need to control their situation to learn to live without fear and to feel the connection with the very nature of existence. Home, roots, family and all forms of life experiences that relate to connecting with deep roots will develop a new sense of protection, no longer based on struggle, action and control, but on receptivity to the energy of nature, of the earth, from the source of life connected to the natural. By letting go of the search for status, a place or a perfect social position, these natives will then be able to feel from within the state of peace which comes from the deep rootedness of the being and which alone can provide a lasting sense of security.
