Astrological Transit of VENUS in 4th house of Home and Family

Your home is a reflection of your inner wellspring of contentment and tranquility, so making it more pleasant will have a similar effect on your mood.

Traditional name: House of Home and Family 

Terrain: home, family, history, ancestors, one parent, real estate, genealogy 

Shares common ground with: the sign of Cancer; the Moon 

Why is genealogy so fascinating? It could be a 

way of getting to know the ancestors who lurk in your DNA. Where were they from? What did they do for work? What part of them lives on in you? In the most primitive sense, these are the building blocks of the astrological fourth house, like a big old, dusty hope chest filled with your backstory. Your biology, your biography, one of your parents (astrologers debate which one), the place where you first drew breath—all are contained in the fourth house. 

Mostly, the fourth describes the anchor that keeps you rooted inside your existence. When planets transit your fourth house, the hope chest is thrown open. The dust goes flying. Old, creased, yellowing photographs flutter out, along with memories: an afternoon at the beach when you were very small; the longing in your mother's face when she told you, soon after your grandfather's death, that you had his eyes. A bit of an old song. Your high school locker combination.
