7th House in
Horoscope (Birth Chart)
7th house is a very important house as it represents marriage. This house and
planets associated with it determine what kind of married life the native will
lead and if the 7th house lord is placed in the 6th, 8th or 12th house from the
7th, the result won’t be good. If there is Rahu or Ketu in the 7th house, the
native may get married to an old person, a widow or a divorcee. If there is Mars
in the 7th house, the native will, a 100%, have two marriages.
If the planet Saturn is located in the seventh house then the native normally longs
for a serious and loyal relationship. Yet there are careful and reserve actions
to relate and frequently the native need to grow more confidence and triumph over
old fears of rejected and being hurt. Natives communications are sometimes accustomed
by the nervousness that other people will not accept him.
The presence of Jupiter in this house means that the spouse maybe on the heavy
side, while if Mercury is present, the spouse maybe impotent.
Apart from marriage, 7th house indicates any other kind of partnership or union
too, for instance, a friendship can also be determined. A combination of 10th
and 7th lord means, that the native will be in a business. It also represents
any person that the native may have any sort of transactions with.
In vedic astrology, 7th house also represents business. To become a great business
man one not only require strong Mercury but also require strong 7th house. If one
marries to a person strong ascendant and ascendant lord then after marriage, 7th
house become strong (and the vice versa) which makes the person successful after
marriage. If a person is going for a partnership in business then compatibility
between 7th house and 7th house lord should be considered.
The 7th house also represents competitions in forms of arguments, duels, or
contests. If the house is governed by malefic planets, such competitions may not
be fruitful for the native. The 7th house also represents public affairs and the
native’s dealings with the public. Again, if the house is governed by malefic
planets, the native needs to be careful in dealing with the public. But if the
house is governed by beneficial planets, native’s public relations will be
If the planet Venus is located in any house of a native’s birth chart and also possess
a combination with evil planet then it can cause the death of his wife. The combination
of the evil planet with Venus will annihilate its general importance. This is also
gives the clue that the suffering to the planet will not only disturb the qualities
of the house ruled by it but also destroy its general importance. Though the realistic
application of this yoga cannot be much. The brutality of the result i.e. the death
may only occur if the other factors connected to the nuptial relationships are also
feeble and suffered. Simple affliction to the planet Venus by an evil planet cannot
be enough to make death of native’s wife, though it can surely make some health
related issues or injury to the wife.
