Is the 4th house a relationship house?

Hello. I am sure most of us know that the 1st, 5th, 7th and sometimes the 8th houses are relationship-oriented houses. Whenever we study synastry charts, we look at these houses. But what about the 4th house? Tbh, I have not heard of it referred to as being important in relationship analysis, however I feel that it should. For one thing, it's an angular house but with intimate themes. It deals with the home (both symbolic and actual), one's roots..etc. I believe in composite charts, it deals with the couple settling down together. I feel that it should be as important as the 8th house. Probably not as significant as the 7th but it definitely deserves looking into.

What do you think?

The sign Cancer, it's ruler of the 4th house, also has references to groceries, supermarkets, retailers and department stores. My ascendant is Cancer and my moon conjuncts natal sun in Aquarius and in between is a Pluto in 4th Libra.

Hi Wan

I have found that before the Saturn Return of the person, the 4th house does come into play in regards to sensitivity and values being a factor in forming relationships and how much a person's 'comfortable' with their partners at the time. After the Saturn Return, the chart has materialized more and the 4th house then governs the emotional lens of that person a bit more, E.I. reflections on their upbringing, unconscious influences and some of the key motivations behind making something in the world (connection with opposite house, 10th). Having said this, all these things do affect intimacy and the way a person interacts with a significant 'other', especially if they share a 'home or residence' together (4th house issue).
