4. The House
“Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in.” – Robert Frost
The House Card Meaning
Close your eyes, and picture home. What do you think of?
Do you think of the place you physically live? Or, perhaps you picture your family. Your parents, your kids, your partner, or extended family. Maybe you picture the house you would love to buy, or the home you long to create.
The House card encompasses all of these meanings. The house is home. It is your comfort, it is refuge, it is the physical structure you call home, it is your family. Wherever the House appears in your reading, look to the context of the question to determine which form of home the House card assumes.
