Did you know that synastry overlays are one of the first things to look at when doing a synastry analysis?
Sun in the 4th house synastry overlay will give us on overview of how our egos interact and how our partner’s creative expression plays out in our life; the 4th house is a very intimate space in our natal chart, and a partner’s Sun being there certainly has serious implications about the relationship.
The Sun is our vital force, it is the main inner driver that gives us a reason to live on this earth, so it is a central part of the horoscope that shouldn’t be overlooked when examining the possible emotional and psychological dynamics of a relationship.
So, what does the Sun in 4th house synastry overlay imply about your relationship?
I will give you ALL possible versions of how this can play out in your life if you just keep reading.
Before I do that, however, I would like to remind you that synastry overlays are actually the SECOND step in compatibility analysis AFTER both charts have been examined separately.
Studying the separate horoscope of each partner is crucial, because this gives imperative insight into what each individual needs in a relationship. The separate horoscopes of both partners reveal hidden emotional patterns, which the individual may not even be aware of. The birth chart of each partner provides important information about how they approach a relationship, what type of relationship is most suitable for their personality and subconscious behavioral patterns, and whether they need to undergo considerable inner growth before they can mature for a long-term union.
Most importantly, the separate horoscope of each individual provides hidden trauma that may be sabotaging each and every relationship they form, which may in turn undermine this particular union if they are not consciously working on alleviating pain from the past.
The position of the Sun, Moon, Venus and Mars should be closely examined in each of the horoscopes, and so should the state of the 1st, 7th, 5th house and their rulers. It is especially critical to look at hard aspect between Moon, Venus, Mars and Saturn and Pluto. Challenging aspects with Saturn will give the individual an inborn inability to express love and would suggest a certain level of maturity before they can get married and create a family.
Difficult aspects with Pluto would suggest deep psychological trauma, an inherent tendency to manipulate and in the case of a Pluto-Mars square even a tendency for violence or attracting aggressive partners.
I have created two step-by-step beginner guides, which to a certain degree cover this very first crucial step of the compatibility analysis in the following articles, which I believe you should check out before you continue with synastry overlays:

In the birth chart, the Sun represents the center of our personality, just as the Sun is the center of the solar system.
The Sun’s position in the natal chart – by sign, house and aspects creates the fundamental basis of our character, on which all other influences from the other planets are superimposed. For this reason, when we compare the birth charts of two people, we first pay attention to the relative position of their Suns. Although the streams of influence between two people flow through different energy channels, connecting different points of their horoscopes, the Sun with its representation of the ego is one of the principal channels of interaction that needs to be examined.
In synastry analysis, when we do an overlay of two birth horoscopes, your partner’s Sun falls in one of the twelve houses of your horoscope. In each of these twelve positions, it sets a certain color for your relationship and shows an area of your life where the other will have a strong influence.

The most important thing to remember about having someone’s Sun in your fourth house in Synastry is that it acts as a permanent transit to your fourth house!
This means that for as long as you are in this particular relationship, for as long as you communicate and exchange energies with this person, their Sun will be like a permanent transit in your fourth house.
Their Sun, with all it represents will be affecting you at a deep soul level and since the fourth house is about our home and family – it is not unlikely that you feel like this person is someone, who you can build a family with! If you have planets in your fourth house, their Sun will be further activating these planets, and the aspects they are making.
4th House in Synastry
The 4th house is one of the angular ones, and therefore extremely important when considering the synastry aspects that are present there.
The 4th house represents our roots, our family, but also the deepest talents and desires of our soul. This is why when someone else’s planets fall in there, we can immediately feel like they are our family, or on the contrary – we can have an initial defensive reaction towards him or her, because they are entering our most intimate space.
A partner’s planet in our 4th house can also have a very direct impact on our home, our place of living, the relationship with our parents and our roots. Such a person can directly or indirectly influence all these areas of our lives, so examining the cross-aspects that the planet, falling in the 4th house makes is very important.

This position is extremely durable and predetermines a long-term, stable relationship, as long as there aren’t other conflicting aspects in the synastry or separate charts.
The Psychology Behind Sun in 4th House Synastry
When one’s Sun falls in the fourth house of their partner’s horoscope, and more particularly when it falls in conjunction with IC, the Sun person will tend to adopt the role of a parent towards the house person.
Therefore, the latter will instinctively accept the Sun person’s guidance and leadership. The Sun person in the Sun in 4th house synastry overlay may encourage the house person to develop their abilities and the latter may allow the Sun person’s influence to become apparent in the home environment. .
Sometimes the Sun’s influence in this synastry overlay will have a very subtle effect, so that the house person unconsciously desires to emulate the Sun person’s example, unless there are unfavorable cross-aspects involving the Sun.
