Natal Mars in the 4th House

The presence of the fiery planet in the house of family can be a difficult one, as the 4th house is traditionally ruled by Cancer and the Moon. Natal Mars in the 4th house feels frustrated; this is a water house and his aggressive temperament can bring upheavals to the emotional emphasis that the Moon grants to all the fourth house matters. When a native has his natal Mars residing in the 4th house, the red planet is strongly connected with his roots, family and early childhood. This natal position can make the native be an offspring of a family that has military careers, a parent being a policeman or elsehow connected with uniforms and law enforcement.

This planet in 4th house indicates that our potential for action and energy will be exercised primarily in this area. There will therefore be movement, dynamism, spontaneity, and perhaps aggressiveness in family relationships (with negative aspects). At first, there is a need to act in the home and in relation to the family plan, which can give movement at the level of housing, but also animated family relations (in both directions). Indeed it is often a sign of tensions and confrontations with loved ones (with negative aspects in particular), because the need for affirmation is important (depending on the sign of course). On the other hand, it is also the possibility of exercising an activity at home, whether professional or otherwise. Finally and whatever the aspects,

The good aspects of Pluto will strengthen combativeness and the ability to transform things in this area, those of Neptune will make you more generous and devoted, those of Uranus will amplify the ability to act and take initiatives, those of Saturn will allow you to better control the way of acting, those of Jupiter will make you more enthusiastic and energetic, those of Venus will make things more balanced in emotional matters, those of Mercury will make you more skilful and practical, those of the Moon will energize family relationships in a positive way, those of the Sun will make more active but also more able to make decisions at home.

The difficult aspects of Pluto will increase the tendency to revolt and the risk of tension, those of Neptune will make you more sensitive and more dependent on the atmosphere to act, those of Uranus will make you more impulsive, impatient and hostile to constraints, those of Saturn will reduce the ability to adapt, those of Jupiter will make behavior more excessive, those of Venus will lead to greater demands in desires, those of Mercury will create more direct, nervous exchanges and therefore more frequent discussions, those of the Moon will create a gap between the way of acting and the family atmosphere, those of the Sun will bring tensions and power relations in the home or with a parent (often the father).

As always, it is necessary to synthesize the aspects to Mars taking into account the sign of Mars and that of the 4th house which is the backdrop of how this area is experienced.
