Last updated on May 15th, 2020 at 10:30 pm

In addition to that, the 7th house also belongs to the Triangle of Desires or Kama Trikona which signifies desires and the ability to fulfill them. When it comes to the 7th house, it reflects the capabilities of establishing harmonious partnerships (both business and romantic) through which the fulfillment of desires is indicated – well-functioning relationships are crucial for the general well-being of people in form of marital bliss and business success. The 7th house also indicates the desire to love and be loved – to share life with a beloved partner. Being a natural home for Libra, which is ruled by Venus, it also signifies love for aesthetics.

In addition to that, in terms of Bhavat-Bhavam technique, the 7th house from the Seventh House itself is the 1st house or Ascendant, which is the reflection of one’s aspirations. This special connection between these two houses indicates the reflection of one’s self in form of relationship with the life partner and marriage as well as heightened levels of success with the help of established marriage partnerships. In romantic relationships, the love between two souls create a special bond which balances both. On mundane level, the romantic partnership promotes the gain of strength through mutual love and support.

The blend of the significations of Sun and the 7th house promote mixed results as the energies of Sun are in minor disharmony with the ones of Libra which is ruled by the enemy of Sun, Venus. The disharmony reflects in the incompatibility between the self-centeredness of Sun with the compromising and self-sacrificial Libra. In other words, the self-centered nature of Sun struggles compromising its ego in order to maintain harmony in relationships and partnerships which indicates becoming either overly dominant (if Sun is strong) or dependent (if Sun is weak) on others.

Furthermore, the 7th house is a House of Decrease or Apachay Bhava, where natural malefic planets feel rather uncomfortable because of losing the strength of will-power to fight against odds there. It reflects the struggle of fiery, hot-tempered and aggressive planet Sun to cope and withstand the force from the opposition. It generally reflects being sensitive to the opposition by taking things too personally which causes loss of the power of initiation.

Alternatively, the dignity of Sun in this house reflects the ability to creating and maintaining balance, experiencing pinnacles of life, which are major parts of becoming stronger and wiser in life.

Results of Sun in 7th House

7th House Sun in relation to Earth

Having Sun in the 7th house means being born at sunset or the fall of the Sun – the 7th house is opposite to Ascendant, which is related to sunrise.

Accordingly, the positioning of the Sun in the considered house indicates some negative effects regarding the significations of the 7th house and Venus.

It is important to note that the positive placement of Venus (significator or marriage, harmony, partnerships, and the 7th house) and the seventh house lord plays a major role in amplifying the favorable results of Sun in the 7th house.

Additionally, the majority of results are also determined by the zodiac sign in which the Sun resides in the 7th house.


7th house is one of the Maraka Bhavas or damage inflicting houses. In addition to that, sunset, the fall of Sun in the 7th house indicates loss of vitality and energy of Sun which indicates health issues the severity of which depends on the other influences in the chart.

If Sun is well-placed sign wise, and aspected by friendly (to Sun) or natural beneficial planets, it saves from major health troubles as well as from death caused by health issues.

Similarly, when Sun is ill-placed (debilitated, associated with the natural malefic planet, which is an enemy to Sun) in the 7th house, while the lord of the 7th house is very well-placed (in the sign of its friend or exaltation) it indicates having temporary health issues with successful recovery from them.

In the case of Sun being strong, but dispositor bad, it indicates great vitality, health, and strength which is gradually damaged because of unhealthy habits (smoking, excessive drinking, wrong food, and so forth) and lifestyle. Furthermore, if the Sun is aspected by friendly or natural beneficial planets, it indicates the breaking of bad habits.

Sensitive Persona

By default, Sun being in the 7th house indicates minor loss of will-power and becoming sensitive to the opposition, which causes irrational (often arrogant) responses and an unstable mind.

This, in turn, causes becoming drawn into self-centeredness which results in defamation and humiliation from society. However, this combination blesses with wisdom and intelligence related to negotiations, agreements, and trading (7th zodiac sign Libra).

Alternatively, when the 7th house lord is well-placed in the birth chart, it promotes being balanced and remaining calm in situations where being attacked by opponents (verbally and emotionally).

Furthermore, if Sun is well placed in its favorable sign (own sign Leo or sign of its exaltation Aries), it indicates a great amount of will-power and courage to battle opposition with the help of wisdom, sharp knowledge (Sun) and negotiating skills (Libra).


The harmonies from the considered combination indicate late marriage and frequent disputes with the members of the opposite gender because of the struggle of settling down with a specific life partner.

In the case of early marriage, there is a high chance of being involved in multiple physical relationships with different people from the opposite gender (other than life partner), which further may damage the marital harmony.

The negative effects are amplified if Sun is in its sign of enemy, debilitation, or associated with a debilitated or inimical sign by conjunction or aspect – it results in multiple marriages or broken marriage because of over-indulgence of sexual relations with opposite sex other than the life partner.

In this situation, the age of maturation of the planet should be considered – Venus matures at the 25th year of life, which indicates the improvement of the significations regarding the 7th house, Libra, and Venus. Accordingly, it is best to marry after the 25th age, as the maturity of Venus ensures more stability in romantic relationships.

Other than that, if the depositor of Sun or the lord of the 7th house is well-placed, it indicates harmony in romantic relationships after some initial struggles.

Alternatively, when Sun is well-placed and strong in its own sign Leo, it blesses with marital bliss and harmony. This effect is amplified when Sun is in the sign of its exaltation, Aries.

The exaltation of Sun in the 7th house indicates a great match with the life partner. Additionally, it indicates that the life partner will be noble, intelligent, and authoritative with good status and position in life.

Appearance Of Spouse

Sun in the considered house has influence on the appearance of spouse or life partner. Accordingly, Sun in the 7th house indicates a spouse with lean and well-shaped body of average height.

In addition to that, it indicates that spouse possesses physical attractiveness, charm, and magnetism, especially when Sun is exalted or in friendly sign.

Characteristics Of Spouse

Sun signifies the health of ego and its placement in the 7th house, where it falls or sets, brings darker shade to the characteristics of the spouse.

That is to say, 7th house Sun indicates selfish and egoistic personality of the spouse, especially when Sun is ill-placed in the sign of its enemy, bitter enemy, or debilitation.

In addition to that, Sun in the 7th house gives a hot-tempered, impatient, and independent nature to the spouse.


The 7th house is the Kama Bhava or House of Desires, which signifies carnal or sexual desires in particular.

The placement of passionate and fiery Sun in the considered house causes chasing after multiple sexual partners and overindulgence in sexual relationships in order to satisfy the desires.

If Sun is with close conjunction with Venus, it over-heats or burns the sensitive significations of Venus, which are stable and pure love from heart and soul.

As a result, feelings of love and purity are replaced with passion and desire for sexual relationships unless other positive influences in the chart negate this effect or until the maturation of Venus.

Long Distance Travel

The considered placement indicates being passionate about long-distance traveling for the discovery of beautiful places. That is because Sun is an adventurous planet and the 7th house denotes distant areas from the birthplace.

This is another desire related to the 7th house the fulfillment of which depends on the condition of Sun in the 7th house and the dignity and placement of the 7th house lord.

Hence, when the Sun and its dispositor is well placed, it indicates many opportunities to travel and enjoy the bliss of discovering beautiful places and landscapes.

Business & Partnerships

Seventh House is Bhavat-Bhavam to the 10th house, and the placement of Sun in the 7th house indicates struggles in establishing and maintaining harmonious business partnerships and disputes with authoritative figures by default.

These effects are modified by the condition of Sun, 7th house lord, 10th house lord, and the association of beneficial planets with Sun. If they are well placed with beneficial influences, it indicates establishing profitable and successful business partnerships.

In addition to that, as Sun and 10th house both signify fame, authority, and high achievements, it blesses with great achievements and authoritative position with great name and recognition.

Alternatively, if the Sun is well placed in the 7th house, it indicates great entrepreneurial and trading abilities which promotes becoming successful after launching the enterprise.

On the contrary, the ill-placement of Sun indicates a failure in entrepreneurial pursuits as well as obstacles and disputes with authoritative figures.

Classical Interpretation

Bhrigu Sutras

According to Bhrigu Sutram, individuals with this combination have their marriage postponed for a variety of reasons caused by the influence of a natural malefic planet Sun upon the 7th house.

The effect of dynamic, dominant, and powerful Sun in the house of sensual pleasures increases their desire for sensuality and intimacy. Hence, this combination indicates that such natives are inclined towards having physical relations with multiple partners, even if they are in a relationship.

It is also mentioned that their dominant nature causes issues with the opposite gender in relationships. That is, such natives always prioritize themselves over their partner in the first place. As a result, they are unable to make compromises in a partnership which causes some issues.

The negative effects become much worse and lead to disasters when Sun is fallen or debilitated in the given house.

However, if Sun is in good dignity, that is, placed in its own, friendly, or exaltation sign, it neutralizes the malefic effects of this given combination.

Despite being dominant, their compassionate and fair character enables them to find compromises. They are also able to satisfy the basic needs of their partner as prioritizing their well being with a well-placed, strong, charismatic, and radiant Sun.


In this classical scripture, it is stated that these individuals are likely to oppose the interests of society, law, rules, and regulations.

This is the primary outcome of selfish and negative pride Sun in this house causes. Such natives also become uncertain about their motives which makes them wander aimlessly.

It is also mentioned that their character steals the satisfaction in the relationship and causes them to be devoid of happiness from their spouse.

Brihat Jataka

In this classical source, it is mentioned that such natives experience embarrassment from the opposite gender because of an overly proud and selfish nature.

This effect is provided when Sun is in bad dignity in the given house which makes the native unjust, unfair, and overly desirous. This, in turn, leads them to the commitment of immoral and selfish deeds which attracts opposition from society, partners, and the opposite gender.


In this classical source, it is also mentioned that such natives are opposed by society and the opposite gender because of their immoral deeds and greedy nature.

Chamatkara Chintamani

According to this classical source, this combination affects the spouse of the native adversely. Moreover, this position causes unhappiness regarding own body, because of the aspect of Sun upon the 1st house of self.

There is also mentioned that this combination influences entrepreneurship negatively as well. It is because the 7th is about trading, market places, and thus entrepreneurship.

The malefic effect of Sun upon this house causes disharmony with business partners because of lacking fairness and compassion that makes them unable to find mutual compromises. This causes mental stress and anxiety.

It is always important to remember that the malefic effects are reduced if the Sun is in good dignity. It is self-explanatory that a planet in good dignity reflects a dignified personality that saves from bad effects that Sun may cause in this house.
