Fourth house-Tenth house Axis: The Family Portrait
We have Capricorn’s tenth house representing the ‘dominant parent’, and
Cancer’s fourth house relating to the ‘sub dominant’ parent. Cancer’s ruler, the
Moon facilitates the preparation for pregnancy in the 28 day cycles, the
waxing and waning symbolizing the swelling of the belly in pregnancy,
and the supernal maternal instinct. Capricorn sends us out into the
world with our skills and talents at best, while Cancer welcomes us home
with gentle arms. The dominant parent provides the structural support, and the subdominant parent expresses emotional support. The tenth house and the fourth house can indicate conditions around the parents and the upbringing. These will be the perception of the child, rather than what may be observable by others.
Aries in the 4th house/Libra 10th house - Experiences with the mother may have been fun and exciting but also challenging and full of conflict. She could have been the commanding force in the home. There is loyalty but tension. Maybe there is a lot of doting on the father. It may have been him that taught love
Taurus 4th house/Scorpio 10th house - Dominant parent is quite powerful, commanding, and socially present. But there may also be an absence, a sense of neglect, physical or otherwise. The mother may be known for her beauty and sense of style. Maybe she was gentle but martyred
Gemini 4th house/Sagittarius 10th house - Educative and open household. Subdominant parent may have been impractical, disorganized but clever. Father can be moral and worldly, but there can be a pang of distance, emotional or otherwise, from each. The individual lives in their own world
Cancer 4th house/Capricorn 10th house - The individual is highly sensitive to the emotions of the mother. There may have been a lot of early movement. The father could be the disciplinarian while the mother is the emotional recluse, a cradle of safety. The father was a hard and sacrificial worker. A lot of love
Leo 4th house/Aquarius 10th house - The father may have only been present erratically. Maybe he is unusual, talented, but impractical. The dominant parent taught the need for independence. The mother was likely highly present and influential. The individual was the light and star of her life.
Virgo 4th house/Pisces 10th house - The dominant parent may be very creative, unusual, and spiritual, but also or rather mentally ill, substance abusing, and emotionally and physically weak.

Libra 4th house/Aries 10th house - The dominant parent is inspiring but also dominant and possibly interfering. Independence will be instilled in the child. The relationship with the mother may have been sweet and friendly, while the relationship with the father could be full of challenge and conflict
Scorpio 4th house/Taurus 10th house - One of the parents may have been threatening or pedantic with the child. There could be fears of abandonment. Powerful and inexplicable bond with the mother. The dominant parent can be creative, solid, and reliable. Maybe the public has a rosy perception of the home that is untrue
Sagittarius 4th house/Gemini 10th house - One or both of the parents
distributes high wisdom. Education is encouraged. The household is
liberal and communicative. Subdominant parent is meditative and spiritual. Dominant parent is vocal and highly influences the way the individual thinks. They could think identically. Nomadic upbringing

Aquarius 4th house/Leo 10th house - The dominant parent may project unlived desires through the child. Both parents tend to be very proud of the individual, but fail to express this to to the child itself. Subdominant parent may have been frequently absent. The father strongly present and there could be high expectation. A lot of movement. Freedom of expression was likely encouraged. Searches for father figure if denied one
Pisces 4th house/Virgo 10th house - The subdominant parent may be a creative visionary, compassionate, mystical, and powerful, but may have also been dependent, unrealistic, suffer mental illness or addiction. Dominant parent may have been humble but concerned with routine and wrapped up in anxieties. The relationship with the mother is ill defined
These can be varied depending on the presence of planets in the fourth or tenth houses, the aspects made to these planets, and the planets by degree also ruling the cusp.
