intensities and surfaces

where did we come from?

the fourth house in astrology is marked by the imum coeli. latin for “bottom of the sky,” this point in the natal chart indicates the very tip of our roots, and lays the foundation of potential from which we grew. what we find in our fourth house is profoundly insightful regarding our lived experiences as children, and this can help to understand how they shape our personality as adults.

☉ sun in the fourth house: homebody, identity is closely tied with the condition of the home, needing special attention/care, may hold the traditions of the family and live by this or rebel against the home to establish a totally different path.

☽ moon in the fourth house: closely tied to the mother, acute awareness of the emotional conditions of the home, emotions kept under the surface, intense emotions, either very healthy or very damaged home.

☿ mercury in the fourth house: thoughts are influenced by family, interested in history, may have intellectual parents, values family communication/togetherness, fixated on the past.

♀ venus in the fourth house: holds distinct fondness for the conditions of the family, comforting home, home was filled with beautiful things and trinkets, parents may have been collectors of a sort.

♂ mars in the fourth house: turbulent home life, someone who spends much of their energy trying to keep peace, either the instigator or pacifist within the home’s drama, tends to be the ‘bossy’ one of the household.

♃ jupiter in the fourth house: large family, generous parents/parents who spoiled, a need to be extremely giving to others, luck befalls you when you nurture, nice natural flow of the home, potent instincts

♄ saturn in the fourth house: mirrors the condition of the father/austere figure of the home, may be forced early on to be the ‘mature’ one of the house, thinks critically of home life, difficult to express emotions, especially to family

♅ uranus in the fourth house: desire to rebel, breaks traditions of the home, wants to ‘break the cycle’ present in family, sense of detachment from family members, may feel like the black sheep.

♆ neptune in the fourth house: parents project their idea of who you are onto you, overly loving to others, wanting the ‘perfect family’ and being unable to achieve it, avoiding maturity in the home, too lenient of parent(s), irresponsible.

♇ pluto in the fourth house: abandonment issues, a parent who is not around, fluctuating/stirring emotions, intense shifts and changes of the home, guilt or secrecy about the home, life events and changes are kept hidden.

*those with a fourth house stellium are more sensitive and receptive to the environment of the home. what happens in their home sticks with them for life, and they cannot repress or move on from events (especially unpleasant) as easily- especially if the sun and/or moon is involved.

Five Nights at Freddy’s: The Child [INFP]

OFFICIAL TYPING by Lex / Co-Mod

Introverted Feeling (Fi): This child is full of intense emotion, barely surfacing. He is filled to the brim with extreme fear, but he never tells anyone about it, instead dealing with it on his own. As sick as he is of his brother’s bullying of him, the child never tries to stop him, letting him do as he pleases, ultimately leading to the bite he suffered from Fredbear. As soon as he’s trapped in his nightmares, with an iron will, he decides to power on through it all.

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): The child has an extremely vivid imagination; how else do you think he thought up of those nightmares? He is very resourceful, knowing exactly what to do in order to survive his nightmares, and also how to overcome Plushtrap. If it weren’t for the bullying he suffered at the hands of his brother, then the child would have likely been very optimistic and idealistic, wanting to find any way to have fun and enjoyment.

Introverted Sensing (Si): The child has had to bear the same sufferings every single day of his life: torment at the hands of his brother, hatred at the hands of everyone else, and the constant loop of nightmares. He is very good at figuring out how to get through this cycle, however, thanks to the advice of his favorite plush Fredbear. The child can tolerate his sufferings…up to a point.

Extroverted Thinking (Te): The child can act on his feelings, and he’s forceful enough to power on through his nightmares, but otherwise, he isn’t the authoritative type. His inability to stand up to his brother, and prevent him from bullying him, is what leads to the loss of his frontal lobe.

Note: His tiny Fredbear plush is an ISFJ. Through constant reassurances, he is able to guide the child through his everyday life, and his everyday nightmares (Si-Fe). He is very good at finding creative fixes to his problems, and leads him towards (and helps him to believe in) a brighter future for himself (Ti-Ne).
