7th House of the Horoscope

The 7th house of a person’s horoscope or kundli is the primary house that is most rigorously analyzed while determining the state of one’s married life. While there are multiple other houses in a horoscope that are associated with the marital domain of a person’s life, the 7th house is always the most deeply studied one because (in this current context) it signifies Marriage, Spouse or Life-Partner.

The 7th house is always at the center of every astrologer’s attention while ascertaining the quality & trajectory of a person’s marriage.

When does the 7th house indicate that things are going wrong?

Planetary placements in the horoscope of a person reveal the trajectory of various domains of that person's life. When it comes to marriage, there are certain planetary permutations & combinations that are considered as highly detrimental. They pose serious hindrances not only in leading a blissful & harmonious married life but in some cases causes delays in the very process of getting married.

So let us look at what are the planetary placements that cast a negative impact on the marital domain of a person’s life.

Malefics in the Ascendant

The ascendant house or the 1st house of a horoscope is at direct opposition to the 7th house and if malefic planets like Saturn, Rahu (North Node of the Moon) and Ketu (South Node of the Moon) are present in the ascendant then they cast a direct malefic aspect on the 7th house thereby, disrupting a harmonious married life.

Cruel Planets in the Ascendant

Just like Saturn,Rahu and Ketu are considered as malefic planets, Sun and Mars are considered as planets that are Cruel in nature or significance. Placement of Sun or Mars in the ascendant enhances the ego within a person and leaves very little or no room to compromise which creates big behavioral problems between the married couple such as ego clashes, frequent arguments and serious differences in opinions etc.

6th Lord in 7th

In Vedic Astrology, the 6th house in the context of marriage, signifies Bickering and Disputes reaching the court of law. If the Lord of the 6th house is positioned in the 7th house of the horoscope then it creates high levels of bickering with the spouse, thus ruining the marital bliss in the life of a person. This planetary placement is often the main cause of repeated disagreements and quarrels between the married couple.   

7th Lord in the 6th

Just like the case above, if the 7th house which signifies Marriage & Spouse, is positioned in the 6th house of Bickering & Legal Hassles/Disputes, it again creates turmoil in the marital domain of a person leading to loss of harmony and love. Furthermore, it makes the marital relationship susceptible to confusions & misunderstandings.

7th Lord in the 12th

The 12th house in marital context represents Bedroom Pleasures and Endings. Therefore, if the Lord of the 7th house signifying Spouse and Marriage is positioned in the 12th house of the horoscope then the person has only bedroom life as far as his/her marital relationship with the spouse is concerned. The other emotional aspects of marriage seem to remain unfilled in the married life of a person with such a planetary combination.

Saturn in the 7th House

Saturn is a naturally malefic planet and is known primarily for causing delays & obstacles in marriage when placed in the 7th house of a person’s horoscope. People having Saturn placed in the 7th house of their horoscopes tend to get married or find a suitable match, quite late in life.

Mars in the 7th House

The most deadly individual planetary placement that can take place in the horoscope of a person is Mars present in the 7th house. Mars is a volatile planet that signifies Anger, Fights and Heated Arguments and when positioned in the 7th house of a person’s horoscope vitiates the harmony between the couple and creates huge emotional differences as a result of frequent bickering. An aggravated Mars in the 7th house in some cases even leads to domestic violence as well.

Sun in the 7th House

Sun represents Ego, Assertiveness and Dominance. Therefore, the presence of planet Sun in the 7th house of the horoscope creates rift between the couple due to the spouse being highly assertive or dominant. There is little or no room for compromise when such planetary placement exists in the horoscope as Sun in the 7th house usually points to a spouse that does not believe in finding a mutually agreed path or solution.

Troubling Planetary Combinations in the 7th House

Apart from the above mentioned planetary positionings or placements, when 2 or more malefic or cruel planets are conjunct in the 7th house of the horoscope then it severely affects the marital domain of a person’s life. Planetary combinations such as that of Rahu & Mars, Saturn & Mars, Ketu & Saturn, Sun & Saturn and so on, casts a highly negative impact on the marital domain of a person’s life.
