These are interpretations for Mars transits through the natal houses.
Transit Mars in 1st House
When Mars transits through your first house, your personality is much more dominant than normal, but you are not interested in having great power over others, unless they try to dominate you. You feel perfectly happy to be free to do what you want, and to be recognized as an individual by others. Ambition and professional impulse are stimulated and you have more initiative and self-confidence.
You will want adventures and will be more impulsive. It is very favorable for physical exercise, if you observe the safety rules. Now is the time to show the world what you are capable of doing. In other words, others will be impressed by you. If transiting Mars forms difficult aspects, your posture will tend to be aggressive, self-assertive, egocentric and selfish.
Transit Mars in 2nd House
When Mars transits through your second house, you will feel more ambitious regarding money and possessions, and will make more effort to achieve them. Your desire to have possessions is quite powerful at this time, and you may be inclined to make imprudent and impulsive purchases because you want to have that item, “NOW!” You do it to satisfy your ego, not because you need it.
You are likely to be more entrepreneurial in your business and professional affairs than you usually are, since this is the way to acquire the material things that are so necessary for you at this time. If this leads to excess, it could lead to materialism accompanied by greed. If Mars makes difficult aspects, there may be danger of theft.
Transit Mars in 3rd House
When Mars transits through your third house, you will be involved with some type of professional or corporate communication, and there may be some issue related to contracts or agreements. It is very possible also that you have to make trips connected with business. There are often interests with military, political, commercial and sports issues and/or technologies related to car repair, road construction or media.
Be careful with trying to convince others to think like you. This could happen in the course of phone calls, conversations or any other form of routine communication, and especially when you think someone is violating your belief system. Keep in mind that when the energy of Mars becomes too aggressive it is a sign of something lacking, that is, of an insecurity.
It also works the other way around. If you have to sell an idea for work reasons, it’s an excellent time to do it. Your attitude should be soft and gentle. Everything that has been mentioned above can happen with siblings, neighbors and people who are close by. If Mars makes difficult aspects, there is the possibility of auto accidents and irritability or sarcasm in speech.

At this moment it is important to learn to yield and to have a spirit of compromise, both in marriage and in professional associations.
Try to avoid unnecessary conflicts with others.

You will have contact with foreign things or people, possibly even with wars in other countries. If Mars makes difficult aspects, you may be exposed to physical danger while traveling.

Transit Mars in 12th House
It is likely that this transit of Mars through your twelfth house awakens subconscious motivations and psychological impulses. During this period you may begin to be interested in the investigation of the unconscious or in exploring the field of the occult or of parapsychology. It is also a moment of frustration, of self-denial and of staying in the background.
Some repressed energy can manifest itself in the form of irritation and unrest; they are such subtle energies that one often is not aware of them. Patterns of past behavior that have become completely unconscious, are activated without you noticing and now is the time to face them. It is also a good time to work alone or to work in the field of social assistance, where the priority is to help others.
