Ah, the house of love! The seventh house is where we look to find clues to your love life, your sense of romance, your commitment to a relationship and your own wants and needs from a partner. If you’re the cool, distant type, the seventh house will tell us; if you’re a hopeless romantic, that will show up here too. Planets in and transits to the seventh house are linked to your interpersonal relationships in many ways, from how faithful you are to how keen you are to settle down and what you’re prepared to accept from a lover.
It’s no coincidence that the cusp of the seventh house is directly opposite the cusp of the first house, which deals with your identity. The sign on the cusp of this house reveals how you blend with another person, becoming part of something greater than yourself as an individual. It’s not only about love, although that’s what this house is most known for – other partnerships like business partnerships feature here too. The seventh house also reveals how you deal with your enemies – love after all, is just a flip of the coin away from a very different emotion altogether.
The energies of the seventh house can be useful in showing your strengths and weaknesses in dealing with others, and this house also reveals how you cope with heartbreak and with disappointment in love. Whether you’re happily in love or wondering if the right person even exists, your seventh house is where we look for insight.
