We have finished our review for Houses One through Six. Now, we will go on with House 7 to House 12. Then, there are a multitude of exciting ways to use House Rulers. The pain of learning them will be well worth it. It will take you from a novice to a true devote of Astrology.
House Seven is the House of Marriage. In marriage, one must subsume his will to another, to some degree. One must think of the greater good of “The Other”. In this House, the person goes from a solitary person to a duo, a couple. As such, the 7th House is a new start. The person becomes part of a unit, with all that entails.
When the Ruler of the 7th travels to another house and resides there–Think “I will GIVE this to my partner. I will give examples.
R of the 1st in the 7th–the native will subsume his identity to the partnership, to some degree. In other words, the native will GIVE his identity to the partnership. This person will be the proverbial “giver”.
R of the 2nd in the 7th–the native will GIVE money to his partner
R of the 3rd in the 7th— the native will GIVE communication to his partner
R of the 4th in the 7th–the native will GIVE a home to his partner
R of the 5th in the 7th–the native will GIVE romance and fun to his partner
R of the 6th in the 7th— the native will serve his partner
R of the 7th in the 7th–the native will value marriage as a Life Theme
When the Ruler of the 7th House puts his planet in ANOTHER House, we have a very different twist. It is the opposite. The person wants to TAKE from his partner. This cannot said to be “bad”. Things are as they are, in Astrology. The key phrase would be ” I want to TAKE FROM my partner”. You will TAKE what the House rules FROM your partner.
