This can happen especially if Uranus is in square from their Ascendant. There is also a good side to all of this as they can learn how to approach things in different ways and really don’t have the time to get bored. Their family shouldn’t condition them in any way because they would only want to run away if this would be to happen. The weird and eccentric Uranus makes natives having it in the 4th house very strange in the way they care about others. This means they don’t know how to love someone without being weird about it. Since this planet hates feeling tied down, the natives of this placement may have a need to always run away and to do only what they want.

When it comes to their emotions, it’s possible a lot of things from their childhood have made them inconsistent and even a little bit cold. For them, being nurturing and giving with feelings can mean an existential crisis because they haven’t seen as children how this can get done. If Uranus doesn’t happen to sit comfortably in the 4th house or is situated on the IC in their chart, their psychological build-up would be like on autopilot, sounding the alarm each time, something is about to happen, regarding the emotions of others. Therefore, they don’t know what to aim for in terms of feelings. Always restless, these natives aren’t really aware of their ways with intimacy and don’t expect for blissful things to happen in their life, especially when there wouldn’t be a good reason for such events. It’s normal for them to simply not understand what others are transmitting in terms of emotions, and no one can ever be capable of changing this. Don’t expect them to ever open up or be warm as in their mind all this would mean losing their authority and no longer having control over their destiny. They prefer to just sail alone and not get comfortable with the warmth and cosiness that deeper relationships could offer. It’s normal for people with this placement to spend some time alone in order to gather their thoughts. They need their peace to figure out their goals in life, so you won’t find them in bars or clubs too often. These natives resent chaos and being alone makes them feel better as during this time, they can clear their minds. Because they don’t want to let people down, they may feel guilty when spending too much time in solitude.
People with Uranus in House 5 really love their friends and family, therefore, they wouldn’t want to do something to hurt them. One thing that could help them be more nurturing would be to look back at their childhood. It’s possible to discover their parents weren’t quite giving with emotions, so they shouldn’t repeat the same mistakes with their own little ones. The influence of their parents could even make them behave in conflicting ways in their relationship with a partner, especially when not agreeing with their other half on the same things. Perhaps they won’t recognize their childhood is influencing them in the present, but this is surely happening. Uranus being uncomfortable in the 4th house is an indication that natives of this placement have gone through some traumas during their childhood or in their past lives. This probably had something to do with their family or their home, more precisely with the way they’ve been nurtured by their parents. Their soul can carry unconscious memories from previous life cycles, so these natives may have had issues with exclusion from their family, exile and even the loss of a parent. There is also the alternative when their mother or father could’ve been complete strangers for them, so they ended up being very cold and detached because of this. There are cases of Uranus in House 4 people who have such unconscious memories about losing a property or perhaps they used to travel a lot and didn’t get the chance to put their roots in one place. It’s essential for them to notice they always need to move around and to be flexible when it comes to their home. Therefore, having more places to live and travelling between them would be something that brings them a lot of energy. Not to mention it’s not at all suggested for them to invest in only one property because in their unconscious, they all the time need to move from one place to another, which can, at the same time, really bother their partner. Steadiness is not at all in their character and they should be aware of this thing.
