One of the most important houses in a the horoscope, the 4th house commands unparallel respect and abundance of love and caring. It is the house of mother, heart, happiness and everything that makes us feel blessed to be alive. It is also a karaka for homeland and childhood surroundings. Everything else is secondary to a child compared to the unrequited love showered by a mother. A mother is the epitome of selfless love, more holier then God, more pure then Ether and more precious then any gems or stones.
4th house is part of Vishnu Sthanas. While all of them are equally important 4th house is the laying foundation for all individuals. Mother, childhood surroundings, motherland and basic education are governed by 4th house. While knowledge is bestowed by 5th house, the 4th house grants the basic degree. In a nutshell you would get a basic school or college certificate by blessings of the 4th house whether you are deserving or undeserving of that degree. When all hell breaks loose on an individual he finds abode in the shelter of 4th house which is the house of motherland and place where he grew up. While feelings of attraction, love and acceptance are governed by 5th house the feeling of pure love without any expectation is governed by 4th house. Heart which filters and pumps blood to different part of the body is governed by 4th house. A bad planet or transit of a bad planet can lead to heart surgeries, legal disputes in property matters, friction with mother and sadness and misery in life.
