Mars in 4th House

Mars in fourth house 3D model

Our emotional foundation and subconscious self-image based on early childhood experiences are established in the fourth house. The way we feel about ourselves is conditioned by our experience of our parents’ (or significant others’) acceptance or rejection of us as we were growing up. From these experiences we developed our sense of belonging and our capacity to receive - and/or a sense of alienation and a difficulty or frozenness in receiving.

The fourth house rules the home, our family as a child and as an adult, the nurturing parent and our early experience of being nurtured, our most personal and intimate life, real estate and property, and our heritage and ancestry. Here is where we send down roots and establish a base of operations, find our limits, and generally secure ourselves. It is the end of any searching we might have done in the Third house, and thus rules the latter part of life. A planet here indicates the need for a stable emotional base in order to fill the needs of the house it rules. The more planets in this house, the more one tends to be subjective, personal, private or introverted.

Your emotions are strong, assertive, and may need a calming influence with Mars in your fourth house. You are driven to send down roots, build foundations and create security for yourself. When it comes to home and family you're highly motivated. Tension, discord or anger deep within you may be reflected in your domestic life until recognized, understood, and surrendered—when peace can truly enter your soul. Until then, your intimate partners may experience some of your energy as "sand in the bed." If your Mars is afflicted, you're apt to have a dominating mother, strife at home, and/or problems related to changing residences.

Astronomically speaking, the fourth house is that one-twelfth sector of the local sky counter-clockwise from the nadir (see above picture) occupied by planets in the two hours before they reach the lowest point in the local sky.
