This happy home (or not so happy)
What kind of family life do you have? Are you a homemaker or a breadwinner who is the maintainer and backbone of the family? Maybe in addition to that you have or desire a lot of children and want to make the home your castle. Also have close ties to extended family as well. Or maybe you want just a simple apartment or somewhere similar to that just so you have your own space to crash after you make your rounds. Well if we take a look at the Imum Coeli (IC/4th house cusp) we can actually take a look and see what type of family you have, the nature of your home, and your desires for home and family if they are different than what your chart reflects.
I see your IC
The IC represents the 4th house cusp in your natal chart and the lowest point in our natal chart and reflects your security, safety, and nurturing wants and needs. It is said to also represent the mother principle. So for example, say you have your natal moon on the IC. Well your mother will be extremely important in your life and you will likely have a strong bond with her, or need to have some kind of maternal bond. If on the flip side, you have Sagittarius on the IC, you will feel compelled be distant from relatives or need detached relatives and family members. An airy home that feels unconfined will sooth the 4th house archers restless need for freedom.
Full (4th) house
Planets in the 4th house will strengthen ties to home and family as well as increase the need for security. A stellium in this house will indicate someone who is probably a homebody for the most part, or it will indicate that the home is extremely important. So owning a home, in a safe neighborhood, and a place where extended family can gather and convene is going to be an objective of yours. An empty fourth house doesn’t indicate that you will be homeless or lack a family, it just means it will not be a huge point of interest or concern for you.
So how do you feel about your home life and family situation, is it tumultuous? Or is it very tranquil and comforting? Where is your IC located?
