In the ancient source of Vedic astrology, BPHS, one of the first things mentioned is that natives with this combination are blessed with a good reputation and recognition from society.

This effect can be explained by the general significances of the houses involved. That is, the 5th house denotes reputation, fame, and purity of name in a positive light and the 7th house denotes society in general.

Accordingly, the connection between these houses indicates that the native is respected and admired by the members of the society for their righteous and charismatic character traits (5th house influence).

As the 7th lord in 5th house forms the 11th disposition, it indicates that the native is involved with large groups of people where they sign agreements and find compromises between the parties.

Talking about communities, which is the direct effect of the 11th disposition and aspect of 7th lord upon the 11th house, the combination is very supportive regarding the support of society for global causes that involve many groups of people.

In other words, the influence of the 7th lord guides their intelligence (5th significance) towards finding balance and harmony between the parties in the marketplace to form larger groups of people.

Alternatively, if the 7th ruler is damaged or ill-placed in the given house, it indicates that these natives tend to cause disharmony in society withing social circles because lacking knowledge of morals and having no compassionate and balanced attitude.

Virtuous & Righteous

To add to it, BPHS also states that these natives are extremely virtuous and righteous.

This effect is caused by the fact that the 7th house denotes diplomacy, peace, balance, and harmony as it is the natural house of justice-loving Libra.

At the same time, the 5th house is a member of the triangle of righteousness. Hence, the connection between those two houses indicates that a justice-loving, balanced, liberal, and diplomatic person who loves to do everything in a righteous manner.

As the 7th belongs to the triangle of desires while 7th lord aspects another member of desire-triangle, the 11th house, it indicates the deep urge to fulfill ambitions and wishes in a righteous way while fully respecting law, rules, and regulations.

On the contrary, if the given combination is ill-formed, that is, the 7th lord is in bad dignity in the 5th house, it indicates a lack of knowledge about morals and rules which makes them abandon righteousness and motivate to fulfill the ambitions in an unethical way. It also indicates that the native is bereft of virtuous character traits.

That is to say, it makes these natives behave in a very bad and egoistic manner without having any sense of equity and justice. This trait is very destructive towards 11th house matters.

Furthermore, as the 5th is about reputation, the negative effect also causes damage to the name of the native which hinders the process of fulfillment of wishes and aspiration regarding marketplaces and communities.

Multiple Income Streams

BPHS also mentions that these natives are blessed with plenty of wealth gains from multiple sources.

This given effect is provided by the fact that the 7th ruler is providing support of marketplaces and wisdom of trading and speculation in the 5th house. In addition to that, the 5th house is one of the wealth giving houses called Lakshmi Sthana.

Moreover, as it casts a direct aspect upon the 11th house, which also happens to be the house of disposition, it carries double the effects of the fulfillment of desires, gains, and profits.

Hence, all these special indications prove that this combination is very effective regarding wealth earnings.

Furthermore, the 11th house denotes all kinds of complex systems and networks. That is, the 11th house has the effect of constant growth and expansion, which has no ends. Accordingly, as the 7th is casting aspect form the 5th house, it indicates constant growth of wealth through multiple income streams. The income is related to speculation and investing. The multiple sources are provided by the scattering and expansive effect of the 11th astrological domain.

For the best and optimal results, the 7th lord should be in good condition in the 5th house.

Otherwise, if the 7th ruler is damaged, it indicates lacking the knowledge and talent of speculation which causes the natives to fulfill their desires regarding wealth by immoral and deceptive deeds. This indeed hinders the process of having multiple income streams as lack of wisdom regarding this does not ensure consistency and persistence that is required for content growth of income.

Political & Diplomatic Wisdom

This combination provides natives a lot of political and diplomatic wisdom.

In fact, this combination is very strong for having sound knowledge of societal norms and laws that are crucial to make the world function efficiently.

The reason for this effect is hidden behind the significance and symbolism of the 7th house. Namely, it is the natural domain of the 7th zodiac sign Libra, which symbolizes the scales. The scales, in turn, symbolize equity and balance that set the universal norms which ensure the harmonious functioning of masses of people unitedly and efficiently.

Now the 7th ruler, that governs all the above-mentioned, goes into the 5th house of general intelligence. Accordingly, people who have this combination in their birth charts, are blessed to have a basic understanding of the importance of equity that helps people cooperate with each other.

This knowledge makes them extremely competent in politics (5th) as from their balanced and tolerant viewpoints on societal norms. If this combination is well-formed, masses also approve and support the natives because their love for justice and equity is backed by righteous acts.

Not only they have this inherent understanding of the importance of 7th house matters, but they also are willing to always expand their knowledge regarding societal norms, law, and equity which balances groups of people. The expansion is caused by the 11th disposition house, which is also the house fo constant growth and improvement.

The classical source BPHS also mentions that natives with this combination are always inclined towards delightful events and pleasures.

This effect is given by the fact that this combination is involved with houses that carry desires. Namely, the 7th house and 11th house, which is aspected by the 7th ruler bot belong to the triangle of desires.

Furthermore, the 5thhouse is also house of romance and matters of the heart and feelings.

Accordingly, all these connections indicate that the native is heavily inclined towards the enjoyment of various pleasures. That is, their level of desire for sharing physical intimacy and romantic feelings is unusually high.

With that being said, as they are often connected with large groups of people, they might develop strong feelings with the members of opposite gender.

If the 7th ruler is ill-positioned in the 5th house it indicates that the native is having an excess desire for physical intimacy and romantic events with lots of partners from their society, community, or social circles.

Marriage & Relationships

Now when coming to another important topic of the 7th house, which is the marriage and relationships, this combination indicates mixed results.

The reason for this is the excessive desires regarding intimacy the native has. That is, the native is unable to concentrate on specific life partners because of having the desire to be involved with multiple partners. When also considering the fact that their desires are also expanding gradually.
