Neptune in 4th house

Neptune in fourth house astrology model


Our emotional foundation and subconscious self-image based on early childhood experiences are established in the fourth house. The way we feel about ourselves is conditioned by our experience of our parentsí (or significant othersí) acceptance or rejection of us as we were growing up. From these experiences we developed our sense of belonging and our capacity to receive - and/or a sense of alienation and a difficulty or frozenness in receiving.

The fourth house rules the home, our family as a child and as an adult, the nurturing parent and our early experience of being nurtured, our most personal and intimate life, real estate and property, and our heritage and ancestry. Here is where we send down roots and establish a base of operations, find our limits, and generally secure ourselves. It is the end of any searching we might have done in the Third house, and thus rules the latter part of life. A planet here indicates the need for a stable emotional base in order to fill the needs of the house it rules. The more planets in this house, the more one tends to be subjective, personal, private or introverted.

With Neptune in the fourth house you're highly receptive, and want to explore the hidden mystery of the origins of mankind and each individual's place in the scheme of things. You feel obligated to those who gave you the necessities of life in your early childhood. This can form a background for feelings of inadequacy, which in turn makes you feel even more insecure. Asserting yourself, even at the risk of failure, is a good antidote for this pattern. Home, family and security may seem ideal to you, yet you will be asked to sacrifice something (security, heritage, family ties, real estate) in this regard. You can be very imaginative with your home and domestic setup, or a sense of community and unity pervades your family life. If Neptune is afflicted, however, you may have delusions regarding your family, an unstable home life, and/or a weak, unstable, or chemically dependent parent.

Astronomically speaking, the fourth house is that one-twelfth sector of the local sky counter-clockwise from the nadir (see above picture) occupied by planets in the two hours before they reach the lowest point in the local sky.
