“The 4th house in astrology is the sector of your birth chart dedicated to home and family”, says astrologer Rachel Lang. “Think of it as the soil that nourishes your roots so that you can grow and succeed in other areas of your life. The 4th house shows how our living space nourishes and supports us.”

The best home decor adjustment to make using your 4th house astrology sign
If you are looking for the energy of Aries in your 4th house, then it is best to heat it with anything that transmits images of fire – literal or abstract.
“Candles work, of course, but you can add fire in other ways,” says Lang. “Add accent colors in red to your main living room or any work of art with triangles – the shape associated with the fire element.”
Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of beauty and harmony, and generally craves some type of flora. Your home yearns for an eternal spring, complete with fresh flowers and pastels.
“Add live flowers and plants throughout your home to bring more beauty to your space,” says Lang. “The colors of Taurus are pink, pink and light blue. These colors enhance the qualities of your 4th home in Taurus.”
Gemini is a smart and intelligent sign, so your home needs a space where you can learn more and more about the things you love.
“Your 4th home needs to nurture your intellect,” says Lang. “Add a bookcase, if you don’t already have one, and fill it with your favorite books. However, be sure to leave some space on the bookcase for new books. A very full bookcase no longer provides space for learning and personal growth. ”
Since Cancer is the ruler of all household things, he feels at home in the 4th house. You need your sphere to be untouchable and soothing, and you can do this better by playing with the element provided by Cancer.
“Add a water source at the front entrance so that, whenever you enter, you have the immediate feeling of returning home, to an environment similar to a spa, since water is the element of Cancer, and the sounds of it would be soothing, ”says Lang. “If it is not possible to have a fountain, think of a painting with shades of blue. Make your space a place of relaxation from the moment you enter the door.”
You want to bring out your inner lioness, and that means being able to play with shiny, luxurious textures.
“I recommend gold for your home decor,” says Lang. “Really make your space shine with a dramatic touch. Metals work well for people in Leo’s 4th home, and another idea to consider would be to incorporate animal prints into your decor or place a fake fur blanket on your sofa.”
Lang suggests that people in the 4th Virgo house make their space elegant and clean. Although you appreciate simple and elegant decor, the most important thing is that your home is organized.
“For those with Virgo on the cusp of the 4th house, organization is a priority. A trip to the Container Store can be dangerous,” says Lang. “I recommend creating a multifunctional space that you can use as an office space for the times when you are working more at home. Transform a closet into a desk space or add a desk with an organization system”
Beauty and balance are the pillars that can be trusted here. “The sign of Libra is the sign of partnership,” says Lang. “When choosing art, choose paintings and sculptures that feature things in pairs or multiples of two. Stay away from images with one or three people, as things in three are considered a challenge for relationships in feng shui. Avoid three mirrors. hanging side by side or triptych. ”
Lang also recommends that you avoid pictures of just one person, unless there is a particular meaning to attach (such as, say, a loved member of the family).
Leaning on Scorpio’s love of mysticism, you probably see your home as a highly sacred space where magic happens.
“I recommend creating an intentional meditation space with an altar, meditation cushions, candles and silk cloths,” says Lang. “Silk is a high vibrating fabric. It can be a protective barrier between you and other things in your environment. You can use it to cover your altar or meditation cushion to increase the sacredness of your space.”
“For you, the outdoor space is just as important as the indoor space,” says Lang. “Even if you live in a condominium or apartment, it is useful to have a space where you can enjoy being outdoors to nurture the feeling of home. Sagittarius is a fire sign, and adding elements of fire would support the foundation of your 4th house, so you can grow in all areas of your life. ”
Consider adding a beautiful sculptural fire bowl to your outdoor space for those cold summer nights, when you really need some fresh air.
Capricorn is associated with maintaining tradition and honoring the past, which is why your home decor will most likely benefit from vintage decor. That means collecting old photos of your grandparents or scouring Etsy for old finds.
“Tapestries, furniture or antique accessories will add elegance to your space and a touch of history,” says Lang. “However, be careful that your space does not look like a museum. Lay old and new items in your space. It is a bonus if your antiques have a special meaning for you, as this will increase the energy of the space.”
Whether you inherit or buy these materials, Lang recommends that you make sure to clean them with sage to dissolve any energies from previous owners. Hold a ceremony in which you burn sage and stain the item, bless it, wipe off the energy of the previous owner and claim it as your own. ”
Aquarius is the sign of energetic connections between others, as well as a socially responsible humanitarian sign. And, as Lang points out, anyone with Aquarius in the 4th house knows that these connections transcend human relationships.
“We feel them with our pets, plants and all the living things in our environment,” says Lang. “I recommend adding a live wall to a space in your home. This decorative element would help you feel connected to nature. It would benefit the environment and clean the air, contributing to the overall ecosystem of the home.”
Like Cancer, relying on the Pisces water element will help you feel truly nourished and safe. And hey, you can actually get some quarantine company.
“I find an aquarium or even a useful aquarium,” says Lang. “If you don’t like to keep things alive, add a water element in a different way. Decorate with shades of blue or incorporate a water cooler into your living room.”
