Chapter 26 –House of Comfort

     The fourth house from the ascendant is called house of mother, vehicles and comfort. These are the three main things we can know from this house.
     If the lord of the fourth house is exalted or in own house or in friendly house then the above mentioned things would be favorable to the native. If debilitated or in enemy house then would get unfavorable results.
     In north Indian charts, the house next to the third house in anti-clockwise direction is fourth house. From the natural order of zodiac sign marked in the ascendant, we can derive which zodiac sign is fourth house. For example if the ascendant is marked with 4 then the fourth house would be Libra.
