WHAT DO SIGNS OWNING THE 7TH HOUSE REVEAL ABOUT COMPATIBILITY IN RELATIONSHIP AND THE LESSONS NEEDED?
We can learn a lot about Vedic astrology in just realizing that the signs owning a particular house will color it in a very specific way. Let’s examine this in the context of relationships.
While planets in signs are more powerful and have a stronger influence on the house, the rising sign and its 7th house owner can reveal a lot about dynamics. Cancer and Leo rising always have trust issues with partners because Saturn owns the 7th house of Capricorn and Aquarius. The following analysis is for rising signs but may overlap with Sun signs or Moon signs also.
MARS OWNING THE 7TH HOUSE FOR LIBRA
VENUS OWNING THE 7TH HOUSE FOR SCORPIO
With Aries/Libra there is a natural 1st/7th axis, where Aries and the 1st house represent “self” and Libra and the seventh house represent “other.” Where Aries-1st house is about self-assertion, Libra-7th is about compromise. People born with planets in both Aries and Libra or both the 1st and 7th need to learn the balance between these two needs and there is a perpetual dance of Mars wanting to be the hero and go it alone and Venus and Libras who always have to do it together.
For Libra rising and Aries owning the 7th house, Libra inherently attract fighters and conflict despite their peace loving nature because Mars owns two marakas, the 2nd and the 7th, Scorpio and Aries. They may attract useful partners with lots of energy but they may be selfish or controlling with Mars afflicted getting caught in ego and not wanting to do things together. Aries partners will be restless and marriage could become a war zone.
Aries rising can be too possessive and controlling and will attract pretty partners who may need a lot of independence. Venus is a maraka for Aries owning both the 2nd and 7th house so afflictions to Venus can cause longevity and illness. The marriage could be passionate if both partners can allow independence and not get caught up in jealousy and attachment.
TAURUS OWNING THE 7TH HOUSE FOR SCORPIO RISING
MARS OWNING THE 7TH HOUSE FOR TAURUS RISING
For Scorpio rising if Venus is strong, it could lead to lasting marriage as Taurus is a fixed sign. If Venus is connected to the 5th, 7th or 12th or 3rd house will be very strongly sexed. Relationships can lead to expenditures from spouses with Venus owning the 12th. Venus ruling the 7th and 12th will lead to attraction of a very sensuous and sexual woman. The fact that Taurus owns the 7th house means that the Scorpio individual will naturally attract a woman more attracted to material wealth and this may be in conflict with his deeply spiritual energy which is connected to Ketu.
For Taurus rising, there is a lot of strong and sexual energy here with Mars owning the 7th and 12th houses. If there are no other outlets for the relationships and it is too solely based on sexual energy it may die when boredom if the sexual attraction wanes. Taurus is rather possessive and material for Scorpio’s spiritual nature so there will have to be some acceptance of different paths.
GEMINI OWNING THE 7TH HOUSE FOR SAGITTARIUS RISING:

Dual sign have a tendency to get involved in multiple marriages so Geminis, Virgos, Sagittarius and Pisces may have this tendency. Sagittarius rising may attract partners who are too interested in their career because Mercury owns the 7th and 10th houses. Because Gemini is a rather fickle and deceptive sign and a bit over-sexed, their partners may have a very passionate nature. Dual signs in general have archetypal problem relationship issues because the 7th house owner for dual signs has a natural karmic affliction for deep and hidden problems. Sagittarius is very ethical and moral and religious and at odds with Gemini sensual nature and one partner may want to block the others spiritual growth. The key is balancing and accepting the partner’s spiritual nature which is opposed to the other partner’s practical business nature.
Cancer owning the 7th house for Capricorn Rising
Capricorn owning the 7th house for Cancer Rising.
Capricorns cannot handle the fluctuating changing emotions of the moon when they are used to stability and conservative and steady motion. Capricorns are too practical to deal with the mysterious and sensitive and emotional moon. This becomes a tough one to integrate and there is a need to accept the emotional changing nature of your spouse.
Cancers have difficult adapting to the rigid energies of Capricorn and their intense work ethics. Because Saturn owns the 7th house they tend to attract foreign partners who are hard-working and who may not want to be home much. Because Saturn is the owner of the 7th house, there is a natural issue with fear and distrust in relationships and honesty and openness is important for Cancer rising.
LEO OWNING THE 7TH HOUSE FOR AQUARIUS RISING
AQUARIUS OWNING THE 7TH HOUSE FOR LEO RISING
This one is difficult as both personalities are very strong. Leos like to do it their own way and have dominant personalities. Aquarian s are co-ruled by Saturn and Rahu are quirk, individualistic and rebellious. For this one to work there has to be respect and allowing for independence. With Saturn owning the 7th house for Leos, there is a natural fear and distrust with partners and also a tendency to attract foreign partners. There is a stronger need for openness and honesty here also.
PISCES OWNING THE 7TH HOUSE FOR VIRGO RISING.
VIRGO OWNING THE 7TH HOUSE FOR PISCES RISING.
Pisces partners are easy going but sometimes difficult to understand and too spiritual for their practical Virgo mates. Putting up with uncertainty and idealism is difficult for Virgo.
Virgo partners are difficult as they seek perfection and cannot get through flaws in their partners. They are too practical to deal with the idealistic Pisces who is more interested in meditation and spiritual pursuits. The trick will be to accept your partner’s imperfections or lack of spiritual interest and pursue your own business and intellectual pursuits.
These of course are generalities and planets in signs, and placement of house owners will additional color tendencies. Special thanks to Komilla Sutton and Bhasin of Astro-Sutras for their insights into this material.
