More on the 1st house

Generally speaking, the given combination in question is considered auspicious because both, the 4th and 1st houses are very auspicious quadrant houses, which are called Kendra Bhava in Vedic astrology.

Besides this, the fourth house lord in the first house is in the 10th from its own house/sign. The 10th house is the strongest Kendra Bhava or quadrant house in Vedic astrology. Hence, this adds more auspiciousness to the already great combination.

Results of 4th House Lord in 1st House

Well-Learned & Intelligent

It comes as no surprise that classical scripture of Vedic astrology, BPHS states that people with this combination are virtuous and well learned.

The astrological explanation for that is hidden in the general significances of the considered houses in combination. To be specific, the 1st house belongs to the head, brain, and hence the general mindset and learning capabilities of the brain. Whereas the 4th house signifies basic learning and cognitive abilities as being the natural home of 4th zodiac sign Cancer which is ruled by Moon, which is the planet of mind and cognitive thinking.

As a result, people with this combination have a very brilliant mind and learning capabilities which makes them very wise and knowledgeable over time. Such natives are also fond of learning everything new, especially geography, and the history of geography, as the 4th house signifies lands, including geography. In addition to that, such natives may have a deep interest in land discovery and adventures for the same reasons.

If Ill-Placed

With all that being said, there are some things which can damage the positive effects, such as the debilitation or fall of the 4th lord in the 1st house, as well as conjunction with the inimical planet in the 1st house.

In such a case, the cognitive abilities and power of the mind are suffering and resulting in less virtuous character with less interest to learn new things. This also causes being less intelligent. If first house lord is strong, while the 4th lord is debilitated/fallen in the ascendant it indicates having strong intelligence but harnessing it immorally, without any purity.

Virtuous Soul & Mind

The same classical source also states that people with this combination are virtuous, or in other words, pure from the soul. This effect is provided by the fact that the 4th house belongs to the triangle of salvation or Moksha Trikona while the 1st house belongs to the triangle of righteousness or Dharma Trikona in Vedic astrology. The combination of which creates a very pure soul full of virtues. It is self-explanatory, because people who want to achieve salvation, have to be pure and righteous from the mind and heart.


If this combination is auspiciously formed, that is, the fourth house lord in the first house is in favorable sign (own, exalted, friendly) it indicates following Dharmic or righteous principles on the life path with the goal to achieve purity of the soul and salvation.

If the considered combination is formed by ill-placement (debilitation) of the given lord in the given house, it can damage some of the positive effects, such as the purity of the soul and mindset in general. As a result, such people are less righteous and more wicked, which can hinder the process of achieving salvation.

Maternal Happiness

The same classical source also states that people with this combination are blessed with maternal happiness and affection. This result is given by the significance of the 4th house, which signifies mother, and general affection and nurturing from her.

As a result, people with this combination receive care, love, affection in abundance form their mothers. As the given house denotes peace of mind, such natives enjoy that too thanks to their mother, who provide sense of contentment in life. Not only mothers of such natives improve their mental peace, but they also nourish the souls of the natives.

Mothers are the ones who also provide a sense of security which encourages natives with this combination to perform even better in the world. With that being said, such mothers also offer divine guidance to the natives on how to take and keep a moral and righteous lifepath.

And as always, by following righteous lifepath, one becomes abundantly blessed and supported by the universe for good deeds.

If Fallen

The debilitation or fall of the 4th lord in the 1st house results in a lack of maternal support and happiness, which also reduces mental peace and general contentment in life.

Comforts & Conveyances

BPHS also states that such natives with their 4th house lord in the 1st house are blessed with comforts and conveyances.

This effect is provided by the general fact that the 4th house denotes vehicles, comforts, and even real-estate property as per Vedic astrology.

As a result of this auspicious combination, such people enjoy a life full of luxuries and comforts. They are also blessed with a beautiful home with a peaceful home environment.

The fact that 4th lord in 1st is in tenth from its own sign supports this effect even further. It is because the 10th house is the strongest Kendra Bhava or supportive pillar in one’s chart. As a result, this disposition adds more support, balance, and stability in one’s life related to comforts and real-estate.

If Inauspiciously Placed

If the given combination is ill-placed, it indicates that there is a lack of support from luxuries, comforts, and conveyances in life.

As a result, people with this combination enjoy high achievements in the profession or main field of activity, where they are applying moral, ethical, and righteous manners in order to reach higher levels. That indeed provides support from the universe.

As the 4th house lord of the power of the mind in 1st house is related to great learning capabilities and intelligence, such natives are always eager to discover something new which they will apply in their work, business, or main field of activity which helps to reach high social rank and status in life.

If the considered combination is auspiciously placed, it indicates lots of good karma in life, which manifests in great achievements, rank, honor, and by being blessed with all sorts of material comforts. All of which provide contentment in life and mental peace which is the most important, no matter how well-off by monetary means.
