Sun in The Fourth House
The Fourth Solar House:
Arena of home and family.
With the Sun in the fourth house you are likely to be motivated by personal, domestic and family concerns.
You may find that your family life matters more to you than your professional world, and find yourself making choices that prioritise home. You may also be fascinated by heritage and history.
You are challenged to understand the past and your place in relation to it. In time, you learn to offer others empathy and support based on your own solid emotional foundations and appreciation for the ties that bind, be that to family, or those you choose to call near and dear.
The Fourth House pertains to ancestral heritage, home, family and the past. This area of the chart, for better or for worse, describes the kinds of experiences you encounter through family of origin. The Fourth House is also concerned with the deepest stratum of being, with those hidden, rooted or unconscious aspects of psyche that shape identity. In this way, it is connected to DNA codes and genetic dispositions.
Qualities passed along “the family tree” can be described here, especially at a psychological level. If you are born with the Sun in the Fourth House, then you need to understand how your individuality is shaped by your home and family life.
Your sense of identity comes from the quality of your home environment. Family matters take precedence. Coming to terms with what this entails can be a lifelong process. Self-awareness comes through meeting your responsibilities and attending to emotional needs.
You may enjoy spending time at home, “feathering the nest”. Or you may love to reminisce, taking on the role of story-teller, to remind others of the past. You may be interested in history, heritage and genealogy.
While other factors in your chart could mitigate all of this, if you are born with the Sun in the Fourth House then you are likely to be a private and sensitive individual; driven more by emotional values than you are by “worldly outcomes”.
This should align with your Sun Sign, and you should seek to align your Sun Sign influence with the concerns of this house. Do you need a great business and wellness coach to help you get there? Then go here

In essence, The Sun describes what motivates you through life, driving the engine of your personality. It also describes the qualities you are learning to develop in yourself, rather than simply what you are.
Much more than basic personality traits, it is better to think of your Sun Sign as describing the journey you are on as you grow, and the talents you should develop.
The sign that The Sun was in when you were born is of major significance. As The Sun is the centre of the solar system, so it is also the central or lead actor in the drama that is you!
