With the Sun in Scorpio in the fourth house, you discover personal power by getting to the bottom of complex family relationships and history. Your central purpose is to embrace your inner material and transform it. You build confidence by developing an inner sense of power that does not need outside recognition (though you may get it). You shine by standing fully in the muck and mire of your upbringing and using it for your own personal growth. Your world revolves around the power dynamics, sexual relationships, and intense creativity that emerges from familiar environments. Being you means that it’s detrimental to your well-being to ignore where you come from.

― Mackenzie Phillips, High on Arrival
