What if 4th lord Mars is in 7th house for a Leo Ascendant? (Vedic Astrology)
Home : Vedic Astrology: 4th lord in 7th house: You are here
There are actually three Nakshatras that fall in the sign of Aquarius and those are Dhanishta, Shatabhisha, and Purva Bhadrapada. You can make use of this free astrology software to know which exact Nakshatra and it's Pada (there are 4 Padas in each Nakshatra) your Mars falls in and that will give a more accurate prediction. This is because, though all the 3 Nakshatras mostly fall in the sign of Aquarius, their characteristics are different.
Since Mars is falling in the sign of Aquarius in the 7th house we should first know more about this sign. Aquarius is a sign which is just opposite to the sign of Leo and so both of these goes together. For example, Aquarius is a sign of social welfare but can you do social welfare unless you are on some authoritative position? If you are a doctor and when you serve the public regarding their health then it is a social welfare but this is not possible to do unless you acquire an MBBS degree which is nothing but the certified knowledge of human body and its organs represented by Sun as Sun is knowledge and Sun also represents the health.
Now since you are a Leo Ascendant it means you are Sun (as Leo is ruled by Sun) and you need to serve the public (represented by the sign of Aquarius in your 7th house) through your knowledge and creative talent as Leo also represents creativity. Aquarius represents the masses or the public whom you serve.
4th house is the house of nurturing and you nurture when you provide a service to others. For example, when a doctor or Nurse cures a patient this is nothing but nurturing but there are different ways of nurturing. You can also nurture the public through fun and entertainment as Leo also represents fun and entertainment.
Now when 4th lord Mars is placed in the sign of Aquarius in the 7th house it shows that your life could be all about dealing (or nurturing) with the public or making contracts with the public as the sign of Aquarius represents the public and 7th house is the house of contracts, deals, relationships, and partnerships.
Just think of a doctor. The patients come to him one by one and he makes a contract or deal with them (7th house) regarding their health and this is also possible with 4th lord in the 7th house as the 4th house is the house of nurturing and the patients are the public (represented by the sign of Aquarius) and making deals or contracts with the patients is the thing of the 7th house. Also, Sun is health which your Ascendant itself is. But your Mars must be placed in the Nakshatra of Shatabhisha as this Nakshatra is the only one dealing with health and healing out of all three Nakshatras falling in the sign of Aquarius. But other planets in the birth chart must also be supportive for the career of a doctor or a healer.
In general, Mars is the energy within us and when Mars is placed in the sign of Aquarius it means you are putting your energy in dealing with the public or it may also be you are putting your energy in networking and distribution as the sign of Aquarius also represents networking and distribution.
But since Sun or Leo also has to do with fun and entertainment Aquarius is also involved in the fun and entertainment as both go hand-in-hand. There is networking involved in the fun and entertainment world also as all the music and sound passes through a network in the air(Aquarius) to reach the audience at large. That is the reason the last two Padas of the Nakshatra of Dhanistha falls on the sign of Aquarius as this Nakshatras's symbol is "musical drum" and if your Mars is placed in the sign of Aquarius (in the 7th house) but in this Dhanistha Nakshatra then you could also be involved in playing musical instruments like drum. My own Mercury is placed in the Dhanistha Nakshatra and I am a good Tabla player.
But since Leo also represents the throne or higher (government or private) posts nowadays and since the sign of Aquarius represents the public it is also possible that you are making contracts or dealing with the public on behalf of the government or even behalf of a private or public listed company. You may be a government employee with this kind of placement of Mars. The matter you deal with the public could be related to finance, food, law, taxes, etc as from the 4th house the Mars also has an aspect on the 2nd house of wealth and finances and food.
All the information and knowledge you get through the websites over the internet and youtube videos are nothing but Sun or Leo as Sun is knowledge and here also the sign of Aquarius is involved as the world of the internet where you can network with people is nothing but the representation of the sign of Aquarius. The whole IT (information technology) sector is nothing but Aquarius and Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra is the main Nakshatra representing the IT sector.
So if your Mars is placed in the sign of Aquarius in the 7th house but in the Nakshatra of Purva Bhadrapada then this is possible that you may be working in the IT field. For example, you may be into making deals related to cloud computing, web design, web programming, software development, app development, web hosting, SAP, Data processing, hacking, computer games, computer hardware, etc. You may also be a computer network engineer with this placement of Mars.
Another aspect of the sign of Leo or Sun is Gambling and the stock market terminal, if you have used ever, is nothing but the representation of the sign of Aquarius as people (collectivity- Aquarius) there make deals (buy and sell) related to stocks of companies. This shows you could also be involved in buying and selling of stocks or even properties with this placement of Mars in the sign of Aquarius in the 7th house. I said properties also as Mars is the natural significator of properties.
