Additionally, the majority of results are also determined by the zodiac sign in which Mars resides in the 4th house.

Results of Mars in the 4th House

Mars in the 4th house loses all of its directional strength or DigBala as being in the opposite house of where it gains maximum directional strength. Additionally, the 4th house carries the energies of Cancer, where Mars is debilitated. Accordingly, in order for Mars to produce favorable results in the 4th house, it should be well-placed and favorably influenced by friendly (friends of Mars) or natural beneficial planets.

Restless Mind

The 4th house is the house of peace and the placement of fiery Mars in the considered house compromises peace of mind in an account of impulsive, aggressive, and imperative mindset.

As a result, this combination causes anxiety, restlessness, and stress. This trait creates a lot of disharmony with friends and relatives, especially with mothers.

However, if Mars is well-placed in a favorable sign (own, friendly, or exaltation sign) it indicates a fearless mindset that promotes becoming a courageous and successful leader in the selected field of activity.

This combination indicates (like timepiece) being blessed with (by God) high levels of ambition which helps in attaining high achievements. Furthermore, these effects are amplified by a well-placed 4th house lord.

Passive Leader

Mars in the 4th house aspects directly (7th aspect) the 10th house of leadership and high ranks which is excellent for attaining high position and rank in life.

However, as Mars is having no directional strength in the considered house, it indicates passive leadership. Passive leadership is also known as Laissez-Faire Leadership which reflects the management method of refraining from the intervention until the issues in the company (or in any other system) can no longer be ignored.

Well-placed Mars in the 4th house indicates (like timepiece) being blessed with (by God) high success in life and indicates great levels of passion, courage, and will-power to recover from possible damages caused by inactive or passive management methods.

Debilitated Mars in the 4th house, indicates an absence of courage, responsibility, and leadership abilities which deprives of higher success.

Real-Estate & Conveyances

Mars in the 4th house is having a direct impact on conveyances and real-estate. By default, as Mars is having no directional strength in the 4th house, it indicates a lack of domestic happiness as well as certain shortcomings in the account of real-estate property and conveyances.

It either deprives of dream house and cars or causes constant stress from it (because of dissatisfaction). In spite of this, as Mars and 4th house both mutually signify real-estate, it bestows their own property and vehicles to the native.

Matters are greatly improved when Mars is in favorable sign in the 4th house which indicates possessing multiple real-estate properties and various luxurious conveyances.

As Mars aspects 10th and 11th house from its position in the 4th house, it indicates occupation or business related to landed property and abundant gains from it. For the maximum results, the 4th house lord should also support Mars by being well-placed in favorable houses and zodiac signs.


The 4th house denotes the mother and the condition of Mars in the considered house determines the level of happiness from mother. By default, Mars without directional strength in the 4th house causes disharmony with mother which results in unhappiness, stress, and anxiety. However, if Mars and 4th house lord are both well-placed, it indicates a great amount of nurture and happiness from the mother.

Alternatively, the ill-placement of Mars (in inimical or debilitation sign) indicates lack and/or absence of motherly nurture, care, love and support in life which takes a great toll on mental health.

Classical Analysis

Bhrigu Sutras

According to Bhrigu Sutram, this combination causes certain deficiencies regarding the 4th house matters.

That is because of the fact that Mars losses directional strength in this house which also happens to carries energies of Cancer where Mars falls. Unless Mars is well placed or has favorable influence from a friendly planet, it produces negative results.

First of all, it is mentioned that such natives have a lack of domestic happiness due to dominance issues and other disturbances within the family and home environment.

It is also said to cause health issues and disturbances to the parents of the native.

As the 4th house signifies land, the positioning of Mars in this house indicates that the native has great struggles regarding property or experiences obstacles that make it hard to obtain real estate.

If they have property, it is often in bad condition which causes loss of peace of mind to the native and prompts them to spend wealth to improve the condition of their property.

The 4th also signifies homeland and patriotism in which Mars indicates that such natives experience constant issues in birth land which causes great stress, anxiety, and wish to move away from their homeland.

The results are even worse when Mars is conjunct with or aspected by inimical planet Mercury. On the one hand, Mercury as a beneficial planet improves the malefic effects but on the other hand, it makes it worse.

Namely, the native is deprived of own property, which also indicates they have fewer worries about maintaining and spending on their property. However, they must settle with the idea of living in a rental home that does not legally belong to them.

The conditions are even further worsened if Mars is fallen or debilitated in Cancer in the 4th house. This causes separation or detachment with mother which indicates that the native is completely deprived of motherly love, affection, and care. It makes causes loss of peace and satisfaction in early life.

It also causes great suffering and deficiencies regarding other significances of the given house.

However, if Mars is strong and dignified, that is, in its own or exaltation sign, it saves the native from negative effects and produces great results.

In such a situation when Mars is powerful in the 4th house, it provides the native with good property and conveyances. It also makes the mother of the native fortunate, valorous, and healthy.


According to this classical source, this combination causes loss of peace of mind due to having a lack of good friends, comforts, domestic happiness, and motherly affection.
