Poor Sex Life, Marriage & Liv-in difficulties, Gradual Scarcity after Relationship and Sexual diseases – Review 7th House in Your Horoscope!

In astrology, 7th house is known for marriage, marital affairs, romance, sex and sexual matters apart from partnerships, joint ventures etc. In this horoscope we explain the position of 7th Lord i.e. planet owning the seventh house. For example, for Aries Lagna person, the 7th house is owned by Venus and if this Venus is placed in various houses from Lagna (1st house) to 12th house, it shall give different results. (For your guidance, houses have been marked in normal numbering. Results would change when Venus would shift from 1st House to 2nd House and so on.

All matters concerning marriage, divorce, separation, widowhood are looked from 7th house and 7th lord though other houses namely 2nd house, 4th house and 12th houses have also a say in the matter. But, here we are concerned only with 7th house. How cruel can be the husband or wife are also looked from the 7th house and is heavily afflicted by other planets including affliction of the Moon (controller of mind) house. A wife also become responsible for getting her husband murdered is also seen from the position of 7 Lord gets 8.

With the above chart and principles mentioned below with regards to 7th Lord, you can also check your horoscope but do not from any judgment as the totality of horoscope must be taken into consideration.

Lagna First house: When 7th lord is in Lagna it indicates good marriage and she will love her husband, although she will choose her husband but may have an arranged marriage; the husband need not be a relation.

In case of males, one will have intrigues with other women, also of sharp intellect, loose morals, is prudent, skillful, and may suffer from rheumatism or gout particularly if Lagna rises in Scorpio and 7th lord is in Lagna. If Mars or Rahu are in 7th house, and Venus in Scorpio, the native may be a debauch. Similar results can be expected if Lagna rises as Libra and Venus, Saturn, Mars and Rahu are in 7th house.

Second House: Unconventional marriage or love marriage, may be to a relation. A happy married life but financial difficulties will be in life.

In male horoscope, one will be a henpecked husband. Result will be happy in case of Aries and Scorpio Lagna. In other Lagnas finances will be average. If for Aries Lagna, Venus is in conjunction with Jupiter and Mars in 2nd house, native will be very rich.

Third House: Marriage to close relations or close family friends. Late marriage after 25th year and preferably in 27th year, which will be happy. If Mars or Saturn aspects, relations will blame the girl for marriage.

In Male’s chart if 7th lord is combust, the wife of the native will either be short-lived or sickly. If 5th house lord and house are strong and well-disposed favorable results indicated for children.

Fourth House: An unhappy conjugal life. The native will be truthful and various. If aspect by Mars, Saturn or Rahu, the marriage will be with a low caste man and unhappy.

In male chart, one will do well in business if 7th lord is not afflicted but accepted by favorable planet.

Fifth House: Marriage through profession with a self-made man: A happy married life. Marriage will be approved by parents.

In male’s chart, native will be meritorious, wealthy and happy. The results will be favorable in case of Gemini Lagna when 7th Lord Jupiter in conjunction with Venus is in the 5th. Also in case of Scorpio Lagna when 7th place from Lagna. Lord Venus and Jupiter are in 5th.

Sixth House: Love or self- arranged marriage opposed by relatives, the native will love her husband but the marriage will be unhappy.

In male’s chart, his wife will be sick, he himself will become peevish, irritable and unhappy. Unless benefices aspect on the 7th house or its lord, his business or profession may be unsuccessful.

Seventh House: Generally this denotes love marriage. If accepted by Mercury or Jupiter, the marriage will be approved by parents, otherwise arranged marriage in early age. A happy marriage in early age.  A happy married life.

In male’s chart, the native enjoys a happy married life, his wife will be faithful and pious. If 7th lord is with Rahu, Saturn or Mars, his wife will be uncontrollable, haughty and unchaste. She may be involved in an accident.

Eighth House: A most dreadful position. Late or delayed marriage. Marriage will be self- arranged, out of act of folly or foolish passions which may result in happiness. If malefic occupy 8th, she will become a widow unless Jupiter aspects.

In male’s chart, above results will be good. Gain from marriage. The native may suffer from disease of intestine or abdomen sudden accident.

Ninth House: Gain through marriage amongst relations and known family and generally happy marriage unless afflicted by malefic.

In male’s chart native may be benefited by his wife or in laws shall be lucky.

Tenth House: A happy marriage chosen by the girl from amongst the colleagues and co- workers.

In male’s chart, native will be truthful, pious and happy. If Lagna, rises in Gemini, Sagittarius or Pisces and 7th, native will be highly educated, will build his own career by his merits and efforts and will get power, authority and fame. In case of Aries Lagna, results will not be so favorably disposed. Lord is in 10th.

Eleventh House: It is a house of gain. So a good and gainful marriage arranged by the parents and amongst the family members.

In male’s chart, unless 5th lord and house are strong, the marriage, will be unhappy, his children may be short- lived.

Twelfth House: Unconventional and self- arranged marriage. If the Jupiter is in 12th house, the marriage will be approved by planets and will be average nature. A few people say unhappy marriage, but in my views aspects and role of other planets should be considered.

In male’s chart, loss of domestic peace. If 10th lord and house are favorable, family peace may be restored occasionally, bad health of wife, and short journeys etc. are indicated.
