In the 4th house, it talks about the home life. It’s the family, the land, personal foundations, emotional security, and your roots. Many astrologers are divided on whether or not the 4th house belongs to the mother or father. In my opinion it’s both. On a deeper level, the 4th house can signify the consciousness or center of our existence. If you believe in reincarnation, the 4th house can give clues to your karmic lessons for this lifetime. Even if you don’t believe in karmic lessons, what you find in your fourth house can still move you.

In the 8th house, this house deals with joint finances, sexuality, and even death. This is one of the most misunderstood houses because of its dark themes. Such as death, sex, regeneration, inheritances, wills and legacies, bankruptcy, losses, sacrifices, alimony, and clairvoyance. On the positive note, this is the house of transformation and healing.

In the 12th house, it refers to the subconscious, hidden self that exists in our reality. This includes the unconscious mind, subconscious memory, patterns from the past, karmic debts, deception, escapism, spiritual realization, limitations, frustration, and our self undoing. On the physical level the twelfth house has to do with that takes us away from our everyday lives. Secret relationships, hidden enemies, and soulmates are also ties to this house as well. This is also a very self sacrificing house, since it also refers to the collective unconscious of everyone.
