The 7th house in the horoscope represents your contacts with special others. Usually is it the house of marriage since we are closest to our spouses, but this house also indicates how you partner with any other chosen person in your life such as business partners, and sometimes even close friends whom you share your life with.
The 7th house is the first house of the upper hemisphere, the first step in universal development. In it you learn that you are not alone, that you must get along with others, not two who become one (8th house), but two equals finding the common ground and enriching the live of one another.
The 7th house in the horoscope is the house of the counselors, here you enjoy listening to other people, looking into their lives, their issues, and helping them.
The 7th house is where we find the other: how we influence another, how he/she influences us. We are looking for our mirror, our equal, our Chosen other. Having planets in the 7th house does not automatically promise a good steady relationship, in fact, I have found that an empty 7th house is the best indicator for marriage. Planets like to seek, and in the 7th house people may keep on seeking the perfect someone who doesn’t exist.
The 7th house is a practical house, in it we will see what people are looking for in their relationships: it could be love, it could be sexual, it could be safety, it could be status, it could be freedom (from other oppressing factors in life), it could be a partner to have children with, the possibilities are endless but in all of them you do find yourself living your life with someone else, and trying to make the best of it. The 7th house is not a house of sex (8th house and 5th house), it is the house of the agreements. I agree to give you something, and you will give me something in return, and most good marriages are those that both partners agree on the give/take relationship beyond the fuzzy wazzy love.
In reincarnation terms, this house magnifies the fact that we do have a choice in our relationship, karma may have brought us together, but how we respond to that karma is entirely up to us. We can go on fighting, we can transcend and heal, and we can simply enjoy our lives together.
