So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 6th house Lord in 4th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Pisces Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 6th house with Leo sign and sits in the 4th house in the sign of Gemini. It shows that either native or his father works from his home, either running a business or working in a field where communications are important. Here, relation with father are like buddy as Sun is in playful Gemini sign. As Sun is significator of health, it shows a doctor who works from private places. A career as a Lawyer is also not far away. Good communicative environment at home.
Moon - So it is Aquarius Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 6th house with Cancer sign and sits in 4th house in Taurus, where it is exalted. This shows an excellent relation with mother and great home environment. This shows a person or his mother in the field of nursing and taking care of people. This also shows that loans taken by person in his life would be beneficial to him and home. It shows that mind is inclined towards pure service to the humanity and people who are under privileged. It means there is no fake-ness involved in their service.
Mars - Mars can be 6th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Scorpio Ascendant - So if it is Scorpio Ascendant, Mars rules 6th & 1st house and sits in 4th house in Aquarius sign. This shows an environment of aggression and anger at home. Relation with mother is one of dominance, where both sides want to dominate each other. It also shows debts taken for home or land or vehicle and person needs to drive vehicles with safety. It shows an athlete who competes for his homeland in big events. As Mars is in Saturn ruled sign, the success in any such endeavor is expected only after lots of hard work.
Gemini Ascendant - Now if it is Gemini Ascendant, Mars rules 6th & 11th house and sits in 4th house in Virgo sign. Similar things can be seen here too as Mars is again in enemy sign. Here additionally, some health issues may come up for mother as not only Mars rules 6th house but it is also in sign of Virgo which is sign of Healing Activities. So, home environment has lot of activities dealing with health related issues. Relations with mother would again be sore.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 6th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, Mercury rules 6th & 9th houses and sits in 4th house in Aries. This shows a counselor, attorney or adviser working from home or private office. He can be a counselor in debts related matters too. He would have a very direct or sometimes harsh speech too. It can also show a businessman running business from home. Communications within home or with mother may not be noteworthy.
Aries Ascendant - If it is Aries Ascendant, then Mercury rules 6th & 3rd house and sits in 4th house in Cancer. This is much better position as Mercury is in the emotional sign of Cancer. So, communications are going to be very emotional and right from the heart. These people ideally should be health counselors as they really communicate with lots of care in heart. They can also work as teacher or some activist who spread awareness towards health issues in home land.
Venus - Venus also can be 6th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Sagittarius Ascendant - If it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Venus rules 6th & 11th house and sits in 4th house in Pisces sign, where it is exalted. Most probably, this person is most unselfish servant. When he serves people, he feels that it is his spiritual duty. A guy with this placement will get the most devoted wife, she might be in serving people through NGO or something like that. Great amount of wealth through service of others. Spiritual and Divine home environment. Spiritual relation with mother.
Taurus Ascendant - If it is Taurus Ascendant, Venus rules 6th & 1st house and sits in 4th house in Leo. Here things change completely as Venus is in Leo sign, where it becomes ambitious for fame, royal authority and kingly status. Although, they are highly creative but Venus feels burnt in the sign of Sun. These people are also willing to serve others but they think what they are getting by this. As Venus feels burnt, this is not a good one for relations. But in both cases, person will be inclined towards interior decoration and keeping there home beautiful. Actually, they should keep this job of interior decoration as their daily routine, that is their best chance of success.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 6th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, Jupiter rules 6th & 9th house and sits in 4th house in Libra Sign.This shows some health issues coming into home or with mother, as Jupiter becomes functional malefic here. Also, Jupiter is in enemy sign of Libra, so home environment and relation with mother are not balanced. But as Jupiter is most benefic planet, here it still gives a big home and lots of benefits from mother.
Libra Ascendant - If it is Libra Ascendant, Jupiter rules 3rd & 6th house and sits in 4th house in Capricorn, where it is debilitated. It shows that debts secured for home purpose may not prove fruitful to the person. It also shows some fake Gurus coming into life of native because of which relation with mother and home environment gets spoiled. As Jupiter remains the benefic planet, having it as debilitated means that person got what he was looking for but later feels that he didn't get what he desired.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 6th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 6th house lord, Saturn in 4th house (for Leo/Virgo Ascendants respectively) surely shows a person who gets into lots of disputes at home or with mother. He may have been even taken away from home or mother when he was a child and hence he is deprived of mother's nourishment. Lots of obstacles, disputes and diseases come to home or mother. It shows a challenging childhood. It also shows that person's early education is blocked. Career wise, they like to serve people and even animals. They can become Attorneys surely and work from their home.
Rahu - If Rahu is 6th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 4th house in Sagittarius then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Sagittarius in 4th house will transform Rahu as Jupiter as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. So, it will become much like Jupiter in 4th house as discussed above but at the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Sagittarius in 4th house shows a person who is highly obsessed about religion and philosophies of world. They want to read about different religions and philosophies. Their home environment is unsual. They have an unusual relation with mother. She may be a Foster Mother to native or far away from him. This person can become obsessed or fundamentalist about religion.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 6th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 4th house in Virgo 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 the relation with mother goes for a real toss. These people are either physically separated from their mother or they feel a mental separation always. They always feel that their mother is unable to understand their point of view or vice versa. They feel that their mother was unfair to them. As Ketu is in Virgo in 4th house, it means they are not much into digging details and being perfect about things. They feel isolated from any act of being analytical and critical. They may not buy a property in their own name if they want to reside in it. At the same time, this position gives high intuition powers. This position is one of Moksha Margi position, means these people can get enlightenment and liberation if they make effort.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
