7th House Astrology : Relationships
7th House Astrology
The seventh house rules partnerships. In accordance with your Ascendant, or rising sign, the sign of the seventh house is known as your descendant. People seek a partner who balances the qualities of their ascendant — either in marriage or friendship.
The seventh house indicates your primary relationships, business associates, and your legal agreements. The charming Sun Sign, Libra, rules the seventh house, along with Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and harmony.

what are your thoughts on the 7th?
The seventh house is the natural home for the sign Libra. Like Libra, it is ruled by Venus. The element associated with this house is Air. It house is another “angular” house, and the cusp of the seventh is known as the “descendant.” It is directly opposite the ascendant, and represents the western horizon at the time of birth.
The basic keywords I use for this house are “partnerships” and one-to-one “relationships” of all kinds, including both marriage and open enemies! Whereas the first house relates to our sense of who we are as individuals, It (opposite the first) relates to who we are in relationship to another. The sign located on the cusp of the seventh house, the planet ruling that sign, as well as any planets located in the seventh house, indicate how we relate to others, how we experience relationships, and the kind of people we tend to get involved with.
I have no planets in this house. Taurus is on the cusp of the seventh, and its ruler Venus is in Virgo in the eleventh house. Thus, I tend to attract either Taurean or Virgoan types for marriage or other long term committed relationships. This doesn’t mean that they are those sun signs, but rather that they embody the traits of those sun signs. Although my first “true love” was in fact a double Taurus! My ex-husband is Aries, but has some very Virgo-like traits. He is meticulous about everything, and he always was a better housekeeper than me! Also, he did tend to be fairly critical.
