At home with the 4th house

Psychologically, we all need a base of security and stability; an environment where we are safe and protected, as well as a central hub of maintenance, rest, and enjoyment.  

The 4th house naturally operates in that function.  This is a sample of potential needs and interests for each sign, how each might enhance the quality of their respective homes, or how each sign on the 4th house marker (cusp) might respond:

Aries:  an exercise room; a private shooting range; sporting equipment, or a home where rugged and austere living is required and a challenging routine.

Taurus:  gardens, a nursery or greenhouse, birdhouses, gazebo, running water, stables or barn.

 Gemini:  computers and large-screen displays; multiple phones throughout; multi-car garage,

book shelves.
