What was in your Twelve Houses of Astrology decides a lot about who you are, what things you do, and what your life will be like. In Astrology, Seventh House meaning is all about the partnerships we create, and the emotions tied in with those. Find out what planets are in your Seventh House and what they can say about you.

What Does the Seventh House Represent?

Known as The House of Partnerships, and the House of Partnerships and Marriage, the Seventh House is ruled by Libra. Personal partnerships like marriage, business partnerships, and even relationships with any enemies are ruled by this House. Legal proceedings including court cases, lawsuits, any contracts you forge, and dealing with the public are ruled by The Seventh House. The parts of the body this House rules are the kidneys and something classically called “the reins”. The reins were believed to reside in the kidneys, and this was considered the part of us that rules the affections and passions. To read about Libra see here: Libra Traits and Love Compatibility

Some people say our partnerships make us whole and we shift our awareness from ourselves to what we can create with others. Sometimes these relationships create a better life for everybody involved. Beneficial business partnerships, marriage, and great partnerships of many forms happen at the best of times. Other times, unions bring out the worst in us. Things like divorces, lawsuits, and the presence of enemies can escalate into full blown wars at their worst. While we all make choices every day, the influence of what heavenly bodies were in your Seventh House lend their magic to the forming and maintaining of these relationships.

What if I Don’t Want to Get Married?

You don’t ever have to get married if you don’t want to, no matter what is in your Seventh House or what Astrology says about that. Legal marriage is one thing. Being emotionally bonded with someone and sharing life with them is another thing. You can be connected with someone for life and have no legal documentation stating that, and that is okay. The Seventh House doesn’t just rule marriage, but many partnerships. Business unions are ruled by this too. So maybe you don’t believe in society’s inclusion in your personal relationships enough to get a marriage license or you have not met somebody you love enough to marry, and that is okay. Not everybody is cut out for marriage and your Seventh House tells you more than things dealing with marriage. Read about the stages of a relationship here: What Are the Phases of Relationships?

But I Don’t Believe in Making Enemies

But I Don’t Believe in Making Enemies

That is very fair- and very wise. It’s never a good idea to go looking for fights or deliberately pitting ourselves against other people. Unfortunately, it happens sometimes. The enemies this House rules are our open enemies. Secret enemies are ruled by the Twelfth House and we will read about that in a different article. If you don’t mean to, how can you have an enemy? Accidents, misunderstandings, and jealousy make people turn against us sometimes and there is nothing that can be done about that. Sometimes, we are minding our own business, and somebody decides they take offense to us or just dislike us for some reason. Failed relationships and competition can pit people against us as well.

The Planets in the 7th House

Once you cast your Birth Chart, you will see that different kinds of celestial bodies were positioned in your Houses at the moment you were born. Some are Zodiac Sign Constellations and there were also planets. The Sun, Moon, and the planets of our Solar System each have their own powers. The energy from the planets brings certain qualities to the Houses. Read below to find out what things each of the planets create when they are in the Seventh House.

Saturn in the 7th House

Saturn in the 7th House

Saturn brings responsibility and delays to the Seventh House. If you wait until after age 28 or 30 to settle down with a romantic partner, this means you will be sure you are happy and committed before marriage. Saturn can bring a bitter disposition, and disappointments in long-term relationships can make you cold to being open to love again. You are able to separate emotions from business, and any legal proceedings will be undertaken in a businesslike manner, but you will need to be patient during delays. Your enemies better get organized if they want to win against you because you have your priorities, work ethic, and facts straight. Saturn rules Capricorn and you can read about that Sign here: Capricorn Zodiac Traits and Love Compatibility

Jupiter in the 7th House

Jupiter brings expansion and wealth to the Seventh House. It also brings luck. Business partnerships and marriage expands your luck and wealth. Your marriage or life partner may have more income or family wealth than you. You are well liked and trusted in business dealings. Legally binding contracts can expand your fortune and any enemies you have may find themselves liking you despite themselves. You have the potential to convince any enemies to partner with you and together, you can be great allies.

The Moon in the 7th House

The Moon brings emotions and the need to feel secure in life. This means you will join with a life partner for emotional security, and you won’t like being alone. You will have to be careful not to become codependent and allow some things in life for yourself aside from other people. Others appreciate your emotional sensitivity and loyalty, but romantic partners won’t always commit as strongly as you do. A series of disappointing relationships may ensue, but in the end, your persistence and devotion will help you find the right partner. You need to emotionally connect for all forms of unions and may find yourself doing business with the same people for your entire life. Enemies can hurt your feelings easily and can completely control your emotions if you let them. Find out about your Black Moon Lilith Sign here: What is My Lilith Sign?

Venus in the 7th House

Venus brings beauty and harmony to the Seventh House. If Venus is in your Seventh House, you want your relationships to be balanced and strong. You are likely to marry or form a long-term relationship young and live happily ever after. You are well liked by others in all forms of relationships, including business ones because you want to make everybody happy. Just make sure not to let your good nature be taken advantage of. Learn to take up for yourself if somebody is being unfair. In business dealings and conflicts, you seek a mutually beneficial resolution with no fights, and you try to work things out with enemies.

Pluto in the 7th House

Pluto brings transformation and intensity to the Seventh House. You will be drawn to people with strong personalities, and you may battle for control of each other or the relationship. Pluto will create more intensity in your relationship as time goes on. You may fall more powerfully in love or fight with one another harder. Fear of being dominated can lead you to break off relationships and jealousy or trust issues can as well. Enemies should reconsider crossing you, and reconsider again, because Pluto makes you a force to be reckoned with and you don’t forgive and forget easily if at all.

Mars in the 7th House

A long-term mate or spouse will have to have a lot of energy to keep up with you. They will also have to be emotionally secure enough to handle the fact that you are a forceful individual. If they are equally as forceful, you won’t mind. You actually welcome the stimulation a partner who challenges you offers. In legal matters, you are sought after for your powerful mediation abilities and persuasiveness. Conflicts with enemies can be explosive to the point of violence or ruin ensuing. Long, drawn-out fights with people can happen over a course of years. If they think you will weaken and back down, they better think again. You are well aware of those who oppose or criticize you, and you won’t let them deter you. The opposition might actually encourage you. Mars rules Aries and you can read about that Sign here: Aries Zodiac Traits and Love Compatibility

The Sun in the 7th House

The Sun brings success and accomplishment to the Seventh House. It also means you will prefer to be united with others in life to being alone. This makes you good at resolving conflicts and ensures those who want to be your enemies rethink that or have a change of heart. Success in litigation is almost always assured. In business, your clients, peers, and superiors love working with you because of your good nature and desire to make everybody happy. In love, a long-term partner adds to your success in life and you put your partner first. You run the risk of being overly accommodating in life, so make sure to set healthy boundaries. The Sun rules Leo and you can read about that Sign here: Leo Traits and Love Compatibility

Mercury in the 7th House

Mercury brings the need for a lot of variety and changeability to the Seventh House. You may become bored with a partner and seek relationships on the side, and an open marriage may serve you well. You are likely to meet a partner through work or travels. You can also meet them while pursuing hobbies or learning new things. Be aware that your sharp intellect can translate to sarcasm during arguments. Remember that words spoken during a fight can never be taken back. A partner will never be bored because of all the new things you bring into your life, and you won’t mind healthy debates with them. You are an expert communicator, and you are highly valued because you open other people’s minds to new ideas in business. Keep calm in legal proceedings, and don’t be sarcastic, and you are likely to persuade others to act in your favor. Mercury rules Gemini and you can read about that Sign here: Gemini Zodiac Traits and Love Compatibility

Neptune in the 7th House

Neptune brings mystery and idealism to the Seventh House. It can also bring misunderstandings. You have ideas about what a long-term romance should be like, and you can become disappointed if a lover does not measure up to these. You can also blind yourself to the bad qualities of a lover and commit to someone who is not all they claim to be. This can lead to deceit or a life-shattering breakup. To combat this, get to know your partner very well before committing and be objective about the fact that none of us are perfect, even if we seem to be. In business partnerships you are accommodating and focus on the good in dealings. Your positive attitude makes you well appreciated, and it makes it difficult for people to try to be an enemy with you. Neptune rules Pisces and you can read about that Sign here: Pisces Zodiac Traits and Love Compatibility

Uranus in the 7th House

Uranus brings revolution and individualism to the Seventh House. Any long term romance partner will need to give you a lot of freedom, because you don’t feel the need to commit just for the sake of committing. You also refuse to feel tied down. Your ideal partner will be just as independent as you are. Hasty romantic attachments can result in hurtful breakups and may even result in scandal. You are a rebel at heart and will not submit to authority easily. This can create legal disputes and you might “fight the man” for life. Any business partnership has to be on your terms, and you won’t have an issue calling off contracts if you don’t like the way things are going.

How you unify with other people helps to create your life, and you help to create theirs. The law and partnerships bind us together or rip us apart, and the Seventh House’s energy influences that.
