Under Mars in 4th House synastry partners’ activity rotates around home and family life. If Mars is positive, their relationship in these areas is excellent and they engage in home-building with great desire and love. If Mars is afflicted, such wonderful relationships collapse before our eyes, giving way to disputes, disagreements, and contention.
Since Mars can inadvertently weaken in the 4th House, this aspect is considered unfavorable for marital relationships. The personality of the Fourth House feels depressed due to the emotional insensitivity, aggressiveness and inattention of the “Martian” personality, especially when it comes to problems of house building. The person of the Fourth House feels a certain threat to inner harmony and peace of mind.
The “Martian” person considers the person of the Fourth House to be lazy and emotionally impaired due to the overload of domestic problems. The positive side is that the “Martian” personality can help the personality of the Fourth House mobilize its efforts to solve the most urgent life problems.

Mars in 4th House Synastry Explained
Mars in 4th House is in decline, and your partner and you will quickly feel it, although differently. It will be very difficult for your partner to exert any force on you: you will either completely ignore any pressure, or object at such a high theoretical level that a partner can easily become angry or confused.
Mars in 4th House synastry partner’s activity will often seem tactless, inappropriate and rude, but this is not necessarily the case, and your attempts to rationalize unpleasant feelings are most likely wrong. The true reason for your discomfort is that your partner’s energy falls into very deep and vulnerable layers of your subconsciousness. At a high level, your partner can act as a confessor, helping you figure out the basics of your ethics, eliminate chaos in your life and discover its meaning.
However, if your relationship has not developed, and you are not ready to work at such a level, in the moments of frankness (when your partner is inclined to challenge you, sensing the softness of your IV House) you will be vulnerable. Above all, this will manifest in disturbing your attitude toward life, which your partner will excite considerably: in this case you can give an ardent reaction of indignation, completely inconsistent with your partner’s intention.
In a harmonious version of Mars in 4th House synastry, the partner will quickly catch which manifestations of their activity you perceive painfully and will carefully avoid them, instinctively, supporting your life positions through action. Then your partner will also receive a lot of energy from you.
