This placement of the Mars is one of the worst and troublesome. It would give good results only if its own signs (Aries & Scorpio) falls in the twelfth house. Otherwise, it would give much trouble to the native. In this house, the Mars gives troubles with respect to health and wealth. The expenses would be more than the earnings if the second house and its lord are afflicted or weak. Saving money would be difficult and the person may have to spend money on hospital bills. It may also give a sudden loss to the person.

If the Mars is the lord of an Angle (Kendra) or a Trine(Trikona) house, this placement would destroy the good signification of that house. If it is under the malefic influence, it would be more dangerous and capable of giving major accidents or life-threatening diseases.  But if it is under the benefic influence it would give balanced results or above average results.

The Mars also aspects the third, sixth and the seventh house from the twelfth house. Being a natural malefic wherever Mars aspects, it brings troubles to the signification of those houses. If it is the Ascendant lord or the Yogakaraka planet for the chart, it does not damage the significations. But its aspect from the twelfth house would not give good results either. Its aspect only gives or improves the significations of those houses wherever its own signs (Aries & Scorpio) fall.

The aspect of the Mars on these houses may give troubles in marital life, separation of spouse (Husband or Wife), loss in business, dispute with business partners, court cases, health troubles, accidents, debts and a bad relationship with the younger siblings (Brother or Sister). It also makes the person aggressive, short-tempered, overconfident, arrogant and quarrelsome.

He will have defects either in eyes or ears. He would have strong and uncontrollable sexual desires. This placement of the Mars in the twelfth house gives more bad results than the good. The benefic aspect on the Mars may control it and bring some beneficence in it.
