4th lord Mars in 7th house? Be careful with this native(Vedic Astrology)
Home : Vedic Astrology: 4th lord in 7th house: You are here
In the 7th house, debilitated Mars can create relationships problems and the native may also cheat or backstab their spouse as the 7th house represents the spouse. There was a case where a woman with debilitated Mars in their 7th house left her husband (took divorce) when the husband lost his job and there was hardly any source of income left for him. Also, there are cases where such a person is not able to get married. This is not because of the birth chart, as hardly anyone sees the horoscope before getting married, but just the universe didn't allow marriage for them in this lifetime.
Since 4th house represents the mother of the native the person could also be harsh or cruel with their mother with debilitated Mars especially if there is also an aspect from malefic planets like Saturn and Rahu on the 7th house. This is because Mars is the lord of the 4th house and so it represents the mother. Also, the mother may somehow interfere in the married life. Any kind of business partnership with a person having such placement of Mars is risky as they may be deceptive.
But for a Capricorn Ascendant Mars also rules their 11th house (with Scorpio sign) and so we can say 11th lord Mars is placed in the 7th house. The Scorpio sign on the 11th house shows that a Capricorn Ascendant could be secretive in the public or the with their customers as 11th house is the house of the masses (public) and also the house of your customers and Scorpio is a secretive sign and it is also the sign of risks, emergencies, fraud, and sudden ups and downs.
Now when the 11th house lord Mars is debilitated it shows the person could cheat or deceive their customers or the public to make their money as 11th house is the house of earning money. People selling tickets in black usually have this kind of placement of Mars. Also, there are people selling on the streets who buy products at a low price but quote an extremely high price to the public. In other words, they negotiate very smartly to maximize their profit as the 7th house (where Mars is placed) is the house of negotiation and trade. Also, there are people who are deceitful in the business of medicines. Such people also have their Mars debilitated in the 7th house of trade. Many doctors, Nurses, and alternative healers can also be seen from this placement especially if Rahu is seated in the sign of Cancer or Aries or Scorpio to help with Neech Bhang Raj Yog as mentioned below. This is because Cancer is a sign of healing and nurturing.
Such people may also do frauds (as Scorpio (ruling 11th house) is also a sign of frauds) in the real estate and vehicles business as real estate and vehicles both are represented by the 4th house or the sign of Cancer and their lord Mars is debilitated in the 7th house of trade. This is more so possible if Rahu is posited in the sign of Aries in the 4th house as then the person becomes obsessed about home and real estate as Rahu is obsession.
Many Vehicle drivers on the road are also seen from this placement of Mars in the sign of Cancer in the 7th house especially if their Ascendant Lord Saturn is placed in the sign of Gemini in the 6th house and 6th house lord Mercury is placed in the sign of Capricorn in the first house but 3rd lord Jupiter should also be placed in the sign of Gemini in the 6th house. Also, Mars in the 7th house shows being active in providing conveniences as the sign of cancer is also a sign of providing conveniences in the travel.
But it is not always so that that Mars is debilitated in the sign of Cancer. For example, the people who cook food (mostly women or chefs) also have their Mars debilitated in the 7th house as 4th house is of nurturing > and 'cooking and serving food' is also nothing but nurturing. So for the cooks, Mars cannot be considered as debilitated. The real problem comes when Mars is debilitated both in the Navamsa and the birth chart. Then the person becomes too much immoral and deceptive.
Since the 7th house is 9th from the 11th house the cheating or fraud could also be in the name of religion (such as false Guru or teacher or a corrupt politician) especially if Rahu is placed in the 9th house (of religion) in the sign of Virgo and Mercury (lord of 9th house) is also placed in the 7th house along with Mars. The native may even deceive his younger siblings as Mars is the significator of the 3rd house of younger siblings, courage, and self-effort.
Since Mars is energy and willpower the native may lose his willpower and energy and also will struggle in something like sports if Mars is truly debilitated as sports require a lot of energy and willpower. The native may even struggle to make money from his self-efforts as the significator of the 3rd house (Mars) of self-efforts is debilitated. Mostly house-wives have such kind of placement of Mars who are dependant on their husbands for their livelihood and the main job of a housewife is to cook and take care of the home which is what signified by the 4th lord in the 7th house as 7th house is 4th from the 4th house.
When Mars is not considered as debilitated?
Plz note: Mars is not considered debilitated if there is occurring 'Neech Bhang Raj Yog' in the birth chart. When Rahu is placed in the sign of Aries or in the sign of Scorpio then Mars cannot be considered as debilitated as Rahu amplifies the sign and its lord where it sits. Also, if Rahu is placed in the sign of Cancer along with Mars or Moon (lord of the Cancer sign) is also seated along with Mars then also it cannot be considered as debilitated due to the same reason as above.
To improve debilitated Mars you should worship Shree Ganesha, the deity ruling the Muladhara Chakra which is controlled by the planet Mars.
