In this step 4, astrological houses, of the learn astrology guide to your natal chart, you will discover what the 7th house in your horoscope means.
The beginning of the 7th house in astrology is the point known as the descendant. This is the western horizon of the natal chart or horoscope. If you are looking at a circular astrology chart, it is the middle point of the arc on the right hand side. This is the point opposite the ascendant (see the 1st house). As the ascendant was our starting point and the emergence of a person or concept, so the descendant is the opposite, it is the person meeting another or a concept reaching expression in the world. It is the point in the horoscope where the individual and the outside world meet each other.
In our analogy, it is the time our child has grown up and is ready to meet and settle down with another person. This is the house of partnerships and shows the area of life where we relate with another person. Besides the comfort and pleasure, what is a relationship for, but to make us grow as individuals and to change hopefully to kinder and better people. The area of the 7th house allows us to see ourselves through another and in this way refine our character. The other person acts as a mirror for our attributes and faults and only through them can we change. Without them, our mirror, we cannot see anymore, either our beauty or our failings. This is why love is so powerful because we see ourselves in a completely different light as reflected back to us by the other person. As time progresses, this reflection may not always highlight our beauty but nevertheless it will give us a feedback, through which over the years we will, hopefully, improve as an individual.
This is the area of the 7th house, learning through relationship. Infact people with planets in the 7th house often project them on to their partner. Since this is the point where you and the other meet it is very easy to confuse your nature with that of the other person. Isn't it odd how people often attract exactly the same type of partner one time after another? There is a lesson here that keeps getting repeated until the individual owns their nature and it is no longer necessary for that energy to come to them from the outside world.
This is an air house and as such deals with concepts about relationships. What is right and fair, how should an individual be treated and what is justice between people. The 7th house is naturally ruled by and parallels the sign of Libra. The sign of Libra is the sign of the scales which shows us the idea of balance, fairness and the idea of two elements being in harmony.
The 7th house is an extension of the seed of the descendant. It is about relating to the outside world and the other person. It is quite the opposite of the 1st house which dealt with me and my emergence and needs.
A person with many planets in the 7th astrological house in their natal chart or horoscope, will focus their energies on relating to others and ideals of what is right and wrong and what is justice for the individual. They will come alive through relationship to another and not so much through being left to their own devices. Indeed they may be so heavily focused on the other person that they may lose themselves in the process. They may be very indicisive, as this House deals with the understanding of what is right and wrong, and this is often a great challenge as both sides of a case may seem equally valid.
With Mars in the 7th astrological house in a horoscope, a persons strength and energy will come out in the area of relationships. They may also be quite confrontational with the other person, alternatively they may disown their energy and project it on to another person and keep inviting in aggressive or abusive partners into their lives.
With Saturn in the 7th astrological house in a natal chart or horoscope, there will be much work to do in relating to others. The person may only get married later in life after a lot of hard lessons in relationships.
So, you've fallen in love. Your heart is soaring and life is grand. But will this romance lead to commitment or marriage?
To answer that question we need to consider the 7th house of your Astrology chart! The 7th house is the house that rules marriage and all committed relationships.
First you need to find out which planet rules your 7th house. Get your own birth chart, and look at the cusp (or beginning) of your 7th house, and which sign that is in. Then, look below to see which planet rules that sign -- this is the planet that rules your 7th house.
Next, find where that planet is in your particular birth chart. When an outer planet in the current skies positively aspects this planet in your birth chart, it's a big sign of marriage potential.
For example in my own chart, if you look at the 7th house you will see the sign Libra on the cusp. Libra is ruled by Venus, and in my chart Venus is placed in Aries and my 12th house. So if I am going to get married, I would expect my Venus to receive a positive aspect from one of the outer planets in the sky.
Sure enough, when I got married on November 2, 1997, transiting Pluto was trine my natal Venus (ruler of my 7th house). That's a major hit! But transiting Uranus (which is a co-ruler of my 7th house) was also making a perfect sextile to natal Venus. WOW!
Saturn in the sky will also play a role when you are ready for commitment, since Saturn rules obligations and things that are long-term. As a result, you can expect transiting Saturn to make aspect to the ruler of your 7th house.
Say it out loud: Transiting Saturn must be connected to your 7th house or its ruler in order for you to make a commitment like marriage! And indeed, transiting Saturn was moving to a conjunction with my 1st house when I got married! Yahoo horoscope capricorn.
