Spouse and marriage is the main signification of this astrological house. It indicates the general nature and characteristics of the spouse of the native. The mutual harmony between a life partner and you can be assessed using this house. Additionally, lover and life partner also belong under its significations. As the house belongs to the triangle of desires, the sensual desires and activity between partners can be seen from this house and its lord. It is also possible to predict the timing of marriage and divorce with the help of the seventh house in astrology. The level of Marital bliss can be assessed in combination with Venus and the 7th house.

The seventh house is the opposite house of the ascendant and therefore they balance each other. The seventh house reflects our desire to be in a relationship – in case of strong 7th house and its lord a person has a high desire for partnerships whereas, in case of a weakened 7th house or lord, the person prefers or is forced to be alone. When the ascendant represents your own self, then the seventh house reflects you in the form of your partners and harmony in partnerships. The Ascendant or your own self also indicates how attractive you are to the opposite gender. In conclusion, it is important to have a balance between the first and seventh house in astrology.

The seventh house also represents other types of partnerships such as business partnerships. Your contribution in establishing partnership businesses can be assessed with your seventh house and its lord. The 7th house is Bhavat Bhavam from the 10th house, a house of main activities and profession. Bhavat Bhavam means from house to house in Vedic Astrology – the 7th house is exactly 10 houses away from the 10th house itself. Thus, our profession and business become more efficient and stronger when involved in partnerships. Additionally, If you are looking to sign a contract for partnerships, analyze your 7th lord position in the birth chart and transit for the safest decisions.

It is the perfect house to describe our contribution to the world by teaching us that we all are a part of a system. Our reflection of self or image to the world is seen from the seventh house and thus our level of fame also depends on this house and its lord. It is another example of how the first house and seventh house function perfectly together. If you have a connection between those houses in your horoscope, you will be enjoying the results of a Raj Yoga – a special planetary combination when a triangular and square houses make a connection.

References to The Last Word of God are included not to mix Sunnah Kitab or Quran with worldly science, but to offer the best cure for worldly issues. Always know that this science and the latest religious revelations are separated from each other for more than 5000 years. If you were to evolve from old Vedic science and adopt the latest religious teaching, the leap is worth more than 5000 years of human evolution. I am currently conducting theological updates on all articles, hence some errors may be there. All credit for increased wisdom goes to the best & brightest man who ever walked on Earth who is no other than the Greatest Blessing For Humanity & Seal of Prophets Muhammad ﷺ, and people who kindly taught me the Word of God. All glory to God Almighty.
