    I had a rich domestic life when I was a child.
    Now, at 54, I feel like I'm dying domestically.

    I looked at my personal horoscope and one of the forecasts said Mars in the 4th: Domestic Strife.

    Mars isn't the problem. Your long term issue is Neptune in the 4th house natally. IT and the opposition to Mercury is very difficult and long term.
    Perhaps because your childhood and the family felicity you experienced you might have believed that it was something that happened automatically. But it's not.

    Building domestic harmony is very hard. It takes patience, and compassion and COMMUNICATION. Neptune opposition Mercury is the 'anti-harmony' aspect because each person in a relationship tends to not share their thoughts and feelings. This aspect is a "defensive" one. If you are on the defensive there can't be true sharing and without sharing the family fragments.

    Neptune also rules your 8th house which is the house of partnership values, valuables and sharing.
    So....sex and money affected.

    I'm not saying there aren't other issues....but this is the first one. Without communication nothing else can happen.

    A:
    Is this just a temporary thing the last few months or in the last few years? Yes, I would say part of the current strain is Mars transiting in retrograde in your 4th house which is also square Pluto, ruler of your 4th. Anywhere Mars travels and especially in retrograde will show challenge and Mars associated with the home and domestic is not its optimum placement. Mars works best in the opposite house such as the 10th for career or the 1st house for taking action and self interest. Also you do have a natal strain with your nodal axis square Neptune/Mercury and the recent Mercury retrograde, returning over your natal Mercury has been hitting this. You also just has transit Saturn through the 4th house and that is also not a very pleasant place for Saturn.

    Back in the mid 90s, one of my aunts, a godmother passed.
    I prayed about the loss.
    Then other people from my early home life passed over the years.
    My dad passed.
    My mom would be the last from the people who populated my early home.
    I have nothing close to that home life now and going forward.

    And, according to Astro Carto Graphy, I've doubled the Saturn on the DS.
