is a benign and often very positive influence in your Fourth Sector or
at the Ic. ("Ic" or imum coeli means the beginning of the Fourth Sector.)
The exception would be a badly positioned natal moon, or a moon undergoing
transiting attacks during the time lived in the location. Otherwise, Moon-Four
produces sweet phenomena, especially the water and earth moons.
is one of the major nesting influences. People who stay a long time in
the same home are likely to have a Moon-Four in their RelNats. The Fourth
House is the Cancer House -- the Moon’s own domain. So living here your
Moon feels happy and you put down roots. People who have lived with Moon-Four
very long are almost immovable, except when hard transits hit that Moon
or the locational Fourth House Ruler. Even if you leave, you'll probably
be returning. These places draw you back.
& Clan: Mother of All Tribes
is one of the best locations for family life. You find yourself surrounded
by a group that feels like intimate family, normally including natural
family. You develop a potent family consciousness, with the strong inclination
to benefit your little “tribe.” You become protective of them. You come
to feel emotion, deep and rich, for family and clan. You won't easily allow
others into the family circle, but once they are in, it's in a real way.
You become territorial, aware of family boundaries. You become sensitive
about your space here. When someone knocks you tend to open the door just
a bit. You'll be aware of little things that go on around your land and
home. You under-stand the "cellular" approach to life, found in all of
nature. People might view you as clannish. But you hold the vital family
consciousness of the realm. Moon-Four locations produce the solid, cohesive
and self-sufficient citizens of the nations. These people form the national
repository of tradition, dharma, and handed-down cultural knowledge.
Beings Shine Around The House
time you take a feminine planet and place it into your locational Fourth
sector, you manifest female energies and persons around your home space.
This is true of Moon-Four, especially for men living with it. A female
presence around the home is a common manifestation. She'll usually have
strong "mother energy” that is comforting to be around. Often living here
you find that your mother is a strong presence in your life. She is nurturing
and caring (unless your moon is afflicted.) On the other hand, she can
be smothering and controlling and overfill your life. This person can make
it hard to leave here; hard to be your own person. But you have your own
attachment s and sense of family ties to keep you here. If it isn’t your
real mother, still you are likely to find some mother figure having a basic
influence in your daily life.
Place of Nourishment
are well fed here. Somebody makes sure you eat well. This position is an
improver of digestion and you are likely to store up food and provisions.
You become the earth mother archetype or household herbalist, always having
the right concoction on hand which you have acquired or made from your
garden outings. You become a saver of sentimental things. Meaningful
objects collect around you.This location, along with Venus, Sun, and Jupiter-Four,
has the effect of preserving family heirlooms, records, and personal
locational factor produces the inclination to garden, and success in gardening
if it’s a juicy moon. (A well-aspected moon, and in signs like Taurus and
Cancer.) The interest veers toward vegetables and herbs more than flowers,
but all sorts of garden moments are enjoyed by these locatees. Self-sufficiency
becomes an interest, and a fruitful activity. Gardening is less likely
and less successful if you have a drier moon, say in Aquarius, or afflicted
are very emotional here but try not to show it. You are fidgety and like
to be moving about. At night, Moon-Four locations improve your sleep, and
enrich the dream life. (As do Jupiter-, Neptune-, and Venus-Four.) You
develop intuition and receive guidance from hunches. Your imagination
is rich, especially when at home.
here one is likely be the beneficiary of a home and property through family
ties. By itself Moon-Four doesn’t necessarily bring a large or opulent
home, but rather a cozy nest. Here people tend to maintain furniture arrangements
and family patterns for long periods. You may notice a little dirt around
the homes of these locatees
puts you a little "out of your element" when in the exterior world. The
outer realm seems brash and dangerous, and you are relieved to get back
to the sanctuary of home. Moon-Four is not an enhancer of career development.
But you become a fixture of your realm even so. Locals come to feel you
as a part of the secret wealth of their town, the deeper layer of the community
known best to old-timers. Just the thought of your tender concerns and
quiet staying power in the village is a comfort to those who see you walk
of the above will be noticeable with Moon anywhere in the RelNat Fourth.
It is strongest with Moon at the starting cusp (IC) or ending cusp of the
RelNat Fourth. On a scale of 1 to 10, the planet at Ic produces the phenomena
to a degree of 10; late in the House an 8-9, and anywhere else in the House
a 7-8. It is not necessary to have Moon right at the beginning cusp (IC)
to get this phenomena. (See later section, “Going Beyond Linemaps.”)
general, living with Moon in locational Fourth is a sign of good karma,
especially in a childhood location. If you have a good moon, and you move
here for the first time, you will find the location soothing, a balm to
your soul. You will always feel drawn back to Moon-Four locations, and
if your moon is not receiving any hard transits when you do return, the
return will be sweet .
original ACG material makes this factor seem of little value, ar even undesirable.
This is odd since the Fourth House and its cusp (IC) are the Moon’s own
territory. Moon is naturally happy, at home, and fruitful in its own Cancerian
House. The ACG material misstates the case in saying this influence produces
relocations. This would be likely with certain kinds of afflicted Moons,
or when Moon undergoes hits, or when the Ruler of the locational Fourth
House is being disturbed. A Moon-Four locatee normally clings tenaciously
to an existing residence.
is most adversely affected by harsh transits and progressions from
Mars, Saturn, and Pluto. The harshest transits are the dodecile, the quincunx,
and the square -- in that order. Moon-Four locations produce difficult
fourth house dramas at these times.
