Today, 4th house lord sitting in 4th house.
So first of all, let's see what 4th house represents -
4th house represents your home, home environment, homeland, mother, nourishment, childhood friends, peace of mind, conveniences, intuition etc.
Now, what does it mean to have 4th house lord sitting in 4th house?

Now, what is the impact of having 4th house lord sitting in 4th house?
1st of all any planet that is sitting in its own sign is actually the strongest. It is even stronger than exalted planet and the reason is that everyone feels most safe at his own home. So, a planet sitting in its own sign feels like he is at his home and also strengthens the house it is sitting in. Its generic interpretation is that this person will feel a natural bond or strong attachment towards his mother, home or people of homeland. At the same time, this person will be content and happy about his conveniences and home environment.
Now, results may be different due to aspect, conjunctions of other planets or the planet being Retrograde or Combust. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 4th house Lord in 4th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Taurus Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 4th house with Leo sign and sits in the 4th house. It shows that although person has good relation with mother and father both but due to some reasons mother has to be father figure too. It shows person have strong pride and ego attached with his home and parents. Person feels the duty towards parents and home. This position can give a good career in politics.

Stable and convenient life is very necessary for them
Mars - Mars can be 4th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Capricorn Ascendant - So if it is Capricorn Ascendant, Mars rules 4th & 11th house and sits in 4th house in Aries. It shows many things. 1st of all it gives a good career in real estate. This person is very protective and like a guard of his home and mother. But as Mars remains a malefic planet, it shows arguments and power struggle taking place at home, with brothers or mother. It also gives a career in Army or Police Force.
Leo Ascendant - Now if it is Leo Ascendant, Mars rules 4th & 9th house and sits in 4th house in Scorpio. Almost same things can be seen here with results, but here relations with mother and brother may be little turbulent as Scorpio is ruling the house. But still good enough for career in the fields that we already discussed.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 4th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Pisces Ascendant - If it is Pisces Ascendant, Mercury rules 4th & 7th houses and sits in 4th house in Gemini. This shows a very communicative relation with mother or home environment is very communicative. Mother may be a business woman. Mother helps native to develop his skills and talents. It shows someone doing counselling work from his home. This can also make someone an author. Person is very calculative about his conveniences in life.
Gemini Ascendant - If it is Gemini Ascendant, then Mercury rules 4th & 1st house and sits in 4th house in Virgo. Here besides the results narrated in earlier paragraph, the relation with mother become very practical. Native and Mother both are very realistic about life. Mother teaches native to be realistic. It shows someone working as editor or analyst or accountant from his home or private office.
Venus - Venus also can be 4th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Aquarius Ascendant - If it is Aquarius Ascendant, Venus rules 4th & 9th house and sits in 4th house in Taurus sign. This gives a beautiful relationship with mother. Person gets lots of wealth from Mother or Home. This shows a person who loves conveniences and a beautiful home and they will do whatever they can to have it. It can show someone as an interior designer or decorator. Someone who decorates homes for festivals and functions can also be seen from this.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, Venus rules 4th & 11th house and sits in 4th house in Libra. Here, person has a very balanced relation with mother and a very balanced environment at home, means nothing is going to extremes at home. It can show someone doing a business from home as Libra is sign of Business. Business can be of Finance or related with conveniences or female products. Other things will be same as above.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 4th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Virgo Ascendant - If it is Virgo Ascendant, Jupiter rules 4th & 7th house and sits in 4th house in Sagittarius Sign. It shows that home environment and mother is very religious. Mother instilled all the religious and higher knowledge to native. Actually, Mother becomes the Guru for native. It also shows that native himself is seen like a Guru in his place. It gives a big house. Person can be working as Teacher in his hometown.
Sagittarius Ascendant - If it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Jupiter rules 4th & 1st house and sits in 4th house in Pisces. This time everything religious gets turned into everything spiritual, as Pisces is sign of Spirituality. Again, dose of spirituality comes from mother and home environment. This person is more prominent to become a Guru, as Ascendant is also a Jupiter ruled Sagittarius and Jupiter is in own sign and in 4th house of intuition. We can say that doors of other world can open for him. Other things will be same as above.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 4th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 4th house lord, Saturn in 3rd house (for Libra/Scorpio Ascendants respectively) shows that here relations with mother will be based on discipline, strictness and seriousness. Mother will be like a disciplinarian for native but as Saturn is in own sign, person won't mind it. That discipline would make him learn serious lessons of life very early and person values it. This person will be very disciplined and dedicated towards life. They feel a natural duty towards home and mother. Career wise, it can either give a career in Law or Govt or in construction field.
Rahu - If Rahu is 4th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 4th house in Capricorn then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Aquarius in 4th house will show a person who is into scientific and technological research done from home or private office for the betterment of society or home. They are good research minds as 4th house is also house of intuition. At the same time, their home environment is little weird in early childhood. It may be the case that they are raised by a Foster Mother.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 4th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 4th house in Scorpio then 1st of all we need to make sure of Mars' position as it is the main ruler. As Ketu isolates/separates a person from the things related to the house Ketu is sitting, here it can isolate person from his mother or homeland. This person should not buy home in his own name else he won't be able to stay in it. If native is not separated from mother then one or the other trouble keeps on coming,more so because Scorpio is falling in 4th house. It also gives a feeling to native that his mother is not fair towards him in comparison with other siblings. A state of mental isolation continues with mother no matter they are together or away from each other where no party is able to understand point of view of other. At the same time, this position can make greatest of occultists as in Astrologer or Palmist or Tarot Readers. This is also 1st of Moksha Margi positions.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
