Mars in the 4th house 

 Mars is a malevolent planet, and its presence in the angular 4th house is considered unfavorable. The fourth field of the horoscope is responsible for the house, family and living conditions. Peace, peace and quiet should reign here, and the planet-aggressor Mars is destroying this idyll. 

Various disputes, quarrels and family troubles become a matter of concern for the native. He is inclined to use forceful methods in solving domestic and family problems, he is forced to fight for the safety of the family and the safety of the acquired property. Read more

 MARS IN THE FOURTH HOUSE when well-aspected gives a strong constitution which is maintained unimpaired even in old age; the digestive faculty is particularly good and consequently the health and strength are rugged. It makes the native exceedingly aggressive in his efforts to "feather his nest" and accumulate property for old age and rainy day. There is also likelihood of a legacy from his parents. This is a very fortunate position, especially if Mars is in Aries, Leo or Capricorn, but if Mars is weak as in Cancer or Pisces and afflicted by square or opposition, digestive troubles or dissipation will undermine the vitality and the person will become more quarrelsome and disagreeable every day he lives. He will be liable to accident by fire in the home also to fevers and inflammatory diseases. People with Mars in this position should leave their native place as quickly as possible. This may in some measure relieve the trouble.

With Mars in the Fourth House you are likely to exert your energy and initiative within the home and family. The desire for home and roots is strong - your very nature demands a secure home, children and devoted spouse. Much work will be carried out constantly to improve the home environment. At some stage you are likely to experience an inner restlessness that is difficult to describe: if not controlled, this will cause domestic unpleasantness, misunderstanding and disharmony in your home life.
