7th House Meaning In Astrology

Seventh House Of Astrology-  What Is It?

In Astrology, the seventh House is sometimes referred to as the House of marriage, but it encompasses all one-to-one relationships: marriage, business partnerships, contracts, cooperative relationships, and also divorce, separation, quarrels, open enemies, and lawsuits.

The difference between the love affairs of the 5th House and love relationships of the 7th is that the 7th House refers to more permanently binding relationships, whereas the 5th House refers to affairs that may be temporary. When the 5th House affair progresses into a serious relationship, we can say that the relationship has “moved into the 7th House.”

7th house relationships are about cooperation and sharing, and they generally serve some functional purpose in the larger social community (i.e. a marriage). This is different from a 5th house love affair, whose only qualification is “butterflies in the stomach.”

The 7th house includes the way you relate to those closest to you. Planets in this house will influence your manner of relating. They also give clues to issues that arise in your relationships.


The Seventh House is commonly referred to as the House of Partnership. With this house, we see a shift away from the self toward another — a partner. By cooperating with and relating to another we unite for the purpose of achieving something. Purpose is important to the Seventh House — the act of accomplishing something great or small for the self, the partnership and even society as a whole. In uniting with another, we also become a more valuable member of our world: we make a contribution, one small cog in the wheel of life. We have purpose. Cooperation and partnership help to expedite our purpose in life.

Through a partnership, we fill out our essential being. Suddenly, we see ourselves in context. Through a partnership in which we work, play, love and/or create, we are fully formed and completed. The other half helps to make us whole. Ultimately, how we relate to others will help to define the success we have as a human being and as a member of humankind.

The Seventh House shows us that partnerships can take many forms: marriage, business relationships, contracts, legalities, negotiations and agreements. We will cooperate to a greater or lesser extent in these varied partnerships. The quality of that cooperation, in essence how we relate to the other, is key to the Seventh House. Why do we choose this partnership? Is it for love or money? Practical reasons? Social considerations? There are many reasons for uniting with another. We may choose to fill voids we see in ourselves. We may simply want the company and companionship of another. The partnerships we form say a great deal about ourselves and also serve to teach us much. This house wants us to know that the quality of our partnerships will enhance our lives, make them fuller, more special and better for everyone.

Tensions within a partnership also serve to teach us lessons. For this reason, the Seventh House also focuses on the darker side of our unions. Divorce, lawsuits and treaties all fall within this house. At its worst, a partnership may create enemies — and on a more global scale, these rifts can deteriorate into war. It is our reaction to this adversity which will shape the partnerships yet to come.

The Moon brings adaptability which in turn brings a lot of success and wealth. But the person is not good with languages and is often a bad speaker. It can also bring unstable financial conditions and problem in relationships.

Many of these needs and feelings apply especially to how you estimate your own worth, or earn an income, and to finances generally. Income and self-esteem are also subject to fluctuations, as are your moods and the market itself. By the same token, you may have an instinct for money and property.

You are inclined to experience these values and senses (or the need for them) as belonging to someone else – like your partner or people in general, but really they are a part of you, which you should own. If you do not, you will be inclined to suffer the negative aspects only.

You don’t feel love for yourself, unless you’re loved in return. You spend a lot of time giving to others with no return, because you aren’t quite sure of what you deserve.

But, consciously or unconsciously, you are attracted to unconventional relationships and partners, ones that keep you alive to the fact that you are both individual beings with individual desires for more than just a secure and predictable social and love life. 

You are attracted to ridiculous and rebellious people. Someone who is different for different’s sake can attract you, but as it turns out, they don’t know themselves that well, and so you don’t know them either. Your relationships awaken your crazy, which is hard to handle at times. You will have quite a few partners in life, as you weed out the differences that you realise you can’t live with.

Neptune In 7th House

Neptune in the 7th House You look for sensitivity and idealism in others – or one other in particular. You project onto your partner all those things that you long for in a mate. This can only too easily give rise to your having great love affairs which are followed by equally great disappointments. Furthermore, your partner becomes like a drug to you

You are often blinded by love. You have an unconscious connection to certain people. You feel insecure when alone, but have a false sense of confidence with partners.

Pluto In 7th House

Pluto in the 7th  HouseThe issue of power and transformation presents itself to you in your dealings with others – especially in a one-to-one relationship like marriage, so you’re forced to confront the true nature of your deepest fears and desires and to establish a balance of power between you and your mate, or whoever.

You’ve died and been born again, many times, through your relationships with others. You tend towards destructive people, but the right partner will be able to give you new life.
