This article is also valid for > 12th lord in 4th house and 7th lord in 4th house for Taurus Ascendant.
Mars will fall in the sign of Leo when placed in the 4th house for a Taurus ascendant. There are several possibilities with this placement and here are some of them.
1) Mars in the 4th house (irrespective of the sign in the 4th house), in general, is not considered good as here Mars is at its weakest as 4th house is the house of Moon in the default zodiac, and Mars gets debilitated in the sign of Moon, Cancer. Whichever house Mars gets exalted then the opposite to that house Mars becomes the weakest. Mars is considered exalted in the 10th house and so it becomes weakest in the 4th house as the 4th house is just opposite to the 10th house.
Weaker in the sense that the willpower, enthusiasm, and energy in the person is less when Mars is placed in the 4th house than in the 10th house. Such people mostly you will find them doing business or some private job as 4th house is a very soft house of comforts and nurturing (giving knowledge and information such as teaching and counseling) while the 10th house is a house of Saturn representing machines and so with Mars in 10th house, you will find these people going into engineering and technical field such as IT (information technology) and computers as a computer is also a machine or they may go into law and police.
Discretion is good when Mars is in the 10th house and so these people are able to complete engineering as Mars rules the Muladhara Chakra and this chakra is controlled by Shri Ganesha and Shri Ganesha is the deity known for giving wisdom or discretion. When Mars is weak then discretion is poor and then it becomes difficult to complete the higher education and then you need to do business as business is quite easy to do than engineering (or becoming a police officer or an IAS officer which is more so possible with Mars in the 10th house). But this is not always so and there are certain exceptions too depending on how well the other planets are placed in the birth chart.
2) For a Taurus ascendant the sign of Leo falls on the 4th house and Leo is a sign of increasing the name and fame (promotion) so people who are into the marketing of different kinds of businesses are generally seen from this placement and what kind of business you will promote will depend on the location of the 4th lord Sun in the birth chart.
For example, if Sun, Saturn, and Mercury are placed in the sign of Aries in the 12th house then such native could also play musical instruments as Leo is a sign of fun and entertainment also and the 4th house is the house of expressing your emotions and that here is done by playing musical instruments. So, with this placement of Mars, these natives may be doing the business of playing music at weddings or in stage performances.
Saturn in Aries is really good for playing musical instruments such as drums especially when Mars is placed in the sign of Leo which is a sign of fun and fun is the major thing in music. Saturn represents all things made of iron, steel, and wood and so Saturn also represents musical instruments.
3) If Mars is placed in the 4th house in the sign of Leo but if the 4th lord Sun is placed in the sign of Taurus in the 1st house then such natives may also do the marketing of clothes, food, and beverage, fashion items, beauty products, luxury and decoration items, etc especially when the 1st lord Venus is placed in the sign of Gemini in the 2nd house as Gemini is a sign of marketing and writing and Venus is a planet that represents all the luxury goods and finished products related to food and clothing. Also, Leo is a sign of increasing name and fame which is nothing but promotion or marketing.
If Venus is placed in the 12th house in the sign of Aries then such people may also play sports and may also play musical instruments. Venus in Aries is really good for playing musical instruments especially when the lord of Aries, Mars, is placed in the sign of Leo in the 4th house as Leo is a sign of recreational activities such as music, dance, and even sports and Venus is also a planet of sensual pleasures. This is more so possible if the Moon is placed in the sign of Taurus in the 1st house as then the mind is always into acquiring sensual pleasures as Moon is mind and Mercury is the brain.
4) If Mars is placed in the 4th house in the sign of Leo but if the 4th lord Sun and Mercury are placed in the sign of Virgo in the 5th house then a teacher of the subject of commerce or accounting may be seen from this placement as Virgo is a sign that represents the subject of commerce, mathematics, and accountancy as Virgo is a sign of calculations. But this could also be the placement for actors and actresses as Virgo is a sign of arguments and Sun is fun which means arguments in the fun which is nothing but the dialogues in the role play.
People who are into the marketing of health care products such as the retailers in medical stores can also be seen from this placement as Virgo is also a sign of health care and 5th house is the house of name and fame or promotion. People who do a lot of arguments and speak in media about politics and government may also have this placement as Sun also represents the government and Virgo is a sign of arguments. Sportsmen and athletes can also be seen from this same placement provided other planets in the birth chart are also supportive as Virgo is also a sign of competitions and fights.
5) If Mars is placed in the 4th house in the sign of Leo but if the 4th lord Sun and Mercury are placed in the sign of Libra in the 6th house then this is a difficult placement as this may get you into a fight or dispute with someone as here Sun is debilitated and that also in the 6th house which is the house of difficulties, problems, fights, and arguments.
Since Libra is a sign of one to one interaction so this may even be the placement for a boxer or a wrestler as there is one to one interaction and fight in these sports. Mars is a planet of aggression and so it also makes sense with respect to that. This could also be the placement for police officers and terrorists and sportsmen. But this is a very risky placement and may get into injuries. With this placement, you may also get into disputes related to property matter as the 4th house is also the house of land and property for the native of the chart.

All kinds of risky sports and stunts done during the film shooting can also be seen from this placement. But this placement is not good for married as then it will create a lot of envy and hatred in relationships as Scorpio is also a sign of envy and hatred.
But Scorpio is also a sign that represents the chemical industry and so people working in the chemical industry may also have this placement. Surgical doctors may also have this placement as Scorpio is also a sign of surgeries as Scorpio is a sign of going to the roots. People like firefighters may also have this placement as Sun is fire and Scorpio is a sign of emergency and during fire somewhere there is a lot of emergencies.

This is because Sagittarius is a sign of exploration.
