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.
