Mars in 7th house for Cancer Ascendant
Mars in Capricorn
For Cancer Lagna, you have Mars in Capricorn sign in the 7th house. Here Saturn is the lord, and Mars gets exalted in this house. An exalted planet does not form Mangal Dosha. But Saturn is a dry and dispassionate planet. Capricorn signifies structures and strategies. An aggressive planet with dry, cold, and judicial planet features. Therefore this can give a feeling of aloofness and no adjustment.
The Nakshatras included in the Capricorn sign are Uttar Asadha (Sun), Sravana (Moon), and Dhanistha (Mars).

So in my view if there is harshness or commanding feature but there is positive influence also. So it will save relations if a person takes the relationship in a mature and thoughtful way.
Mars in 7th house for Leo Ascendant
Mars in Aquarius
For Leo Lagna, you have Mars in Aquarius sign in the 7th house. Saturn is the lord and Aquarius signifies welfare, humanitarian approach. But Mars is inimical with Saturn, so it will cause separation either emotionally or physically. Mars a fighter with a detached approach, will not make an effort to save the relations.
The Nakshatras included in Aquarius are Dhanistha (Mars), Satbisha (Rahu), Purva Bhadrapada (Venus). Now if Mars is in Satbisha nakshatra of Rahu. then Rahu element will destroy the relations. Rahu is an obsessive planet and has a deceptive nature. It can betray and trick in the relationship. So this tendency will certainly ruin relations in a scandalous or nasty way.
Next, you have to see the sign lord ruled by Rahu. Here you will see Saturn and it is the 6th lord and 7th lord. The involvement of the 6th house with the 7th house of partnership breaks the relations, gives a lot of conflicts, or even gives health issues to the partner. Thus Mars in the Aquarius sign and Rahu star will give separation to a couple or relationship.
Mars in 7th house for Virgo Ascendant
Mars in Pisces
For Virgo Lagna, you have Mars in Pisces sign in the 7th house. Here Jupiter is the lord, so the planet of wisdom, with an action-oriented planet. Pisces signifies research and quest for meaning. Also, Jupiter and Mars are friendly to each other. Here the knowledge and intellect will save the relations.
The Nakshatras included in Pisces are Purva Bhadrapada (Jupiter) Utarbhadra pada (Saturn) and Revati Mercury). If Mars is in Revati, mercury nakshatra, then it can give unpredictable nature. As mars get bitter and tough with mercury, an impotent and playful planet. But Mercury takes the form of a conjunct planet. Also, Revati is a Gand moola nakshatra, and this itself gives problems and behavior issues.
Next, you have to see sign lords ruled by Mercury, so here it will be 4th lord and 8th lord. The involvement of the 8th lord in the relationship gives lots of ups and downs and pain and distress in the relationship. Hence Mars in the 7th house, in Pisces sign, and mercury star will give problems. but I believe if one puts effort, the relation can be maintained, as Jupiter is involved.
Mars is a hot-tempered and very aggressive planet. So when a hard-hearted planet gets involved with relations it generally breaks the heart. But if there is the saving grace of Jupiter, which gives a lot of knowledge, then the person is not swayed away with sentiments, he understands the karma theory and drives the passion in attaining knowledge, and takes its attention towards higher goals. But if one is seeking love and romance then this fighter Mars has no place to save delicate relations.
