Keywords and what the Seventh/7th house governs:


Relationships of any kind: marital, partnerships, business; marriage, commitment, the husband, wife or partner, open enemies, rivals, opponents. Whereas the fifth/5th house governs romance and love affairs, the seventh governs what might lead on from that in terms of deep committed love. It is also the house showing the needs of the native within relationships and how they might be fulfilled. Also concerned is the matter of trust in all manner of relationships. Relationship highlights and problems are shown by transits to this house cusp as well as in a general sense by planets posited there in the birthchart.

The cusp of the 7th house is also the Descendant, formed by the horizon line going across the chart from the Ascendant. It is the sign that was setting in the west at the time of birth, like the sunset. The sign on this cusp will show the type of person we are attracted to in terms of marriage partners. For example if you have Aquarius on the descendant, you will be attracted to those of the Aquarian nature.


In Mundane Astrology the seventh house governs foreign relations, treaties and/or disputes, business relationships and agreements.

In Medical Astrology, by association of the natural order of the signs, the seventh house governs the lower back (lumbar region), lumbar nerves, buttocks, kidneys, adrenal glands, blood vessels, skin
