It is the house of the Mother in an individual’s life and their experience of home and their early years. People with a strong Fourth House often feel part of a tribe or clan not just a family and their roots and heritage can be incredibly important to them and their identity.

Emotional Release and Renewal Ritual
You will need a pen and paper/notebook.
Find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed and take three deep breaths to calm and centre yourself.
Now bring to mind an emotional hurt from your past and let yourself feel it for a few moments.
Observe where it changes the tension or posture in your body – where are you holding this pain?
Now identify the emotion.
It could be:
Write down the emotional hurt and how you feel about it. Let it all out and cry or swear or let out how you really feel while you do it if that is what comes up for you.
Now let go. You can represent this by tearing it up and burying it – or burning the paper, you can even flush the ashes down the toilet!
Now celebrate that this is over, and you have cleared the way for a fresh start in your emotions. Spend a few moments in gratitude for what you have learned and how you have grown from this emotional hurt and be excited that a new cycle is about to begin.
