House Representing Mother and Father in Astrology

In Vedic astrology, the 4th house represents the Mother, and the 9th house represents the Father. Moon is the lord of the natural 4th house, which is the sign of Cancer or Karka / Karkataka Rashi. Karka Rashi is known for its motherly love and care. According to Vedic culture, the Mother represents happiness to children. The 4th house also represents general happiness for a person. Father is the first teacher or Guru for any child. For this reason, the 9th house becomes the house representing the Father. Spiritual guidance is also received from this house.

The 5th house represents children in Vedic astrology. If you count five from the 9th house, you will reach Lagna/1st house or yourself. It means 'You' or Lagna is getting birth from the 9th House of Father. According to Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra, the 10th house is also mentioned as the house representing Father. This statement is per bhavat bhavam principles, meaning the 10th house is 7th (spouse's house) from the 4th house. Or in other words, the 10th house is the spouse of the 4th house or spouse of the Mother.

When an astrologer analyses the birth charts, the 9th and 10th are considered while checking matters related to Father. The astrologer may apply their logic in a different way here. The 9th house is seen as an independent person as a Father, while the 10th house is seen as a spouse or husband of the concerned person's Mother.
