The Seventh Astrology House- Now I see you
Thank you for joining our Journey Through the Astrology Houses! Last week we were speaking about the sixth astrology house in which you find your place in society, and make an effort to be useful. Today we have come to the seventh astrology house - the house of relationships. Looking at the whole journey through the astrology houses, each house is a stage of growth in your life. Now that you have found your place in the world, it's time for you to form relationships. It's time to find your other half in the seventh astrology house.
In the 7th house, whose beginning is marked by the Descendant (the Western horizon at the time of birth), we come face to face with where we started: ourselves. And what better way to do this than to interact with others and with society? Both represent forces that can clash with our own will (the 1st house) and that can teach us cooperation and integration. Traditionally the house of marriage, the 7th house marks a commitment to a stable, long-term relationship or partnership. After enjoying the pleasures of life (the 5th house) and starting to work for a living (the 6th house), the youngster is no longer a child. He or she takes the next step in life by entering a union with another human being, one that will challenge their inner assumptions and require constant adaptation and compromise.
The 7th house is where we project our shadow on the other: we are either attracted, either repelled by what we don’t cultivate or recognize in ourselves. 7th house experiences can come in the form of romantic relationships, marriages, work partnerships, even enmities. At a social level, here we have contracts, lawsuits or diplomacy issues. What these experiences have in common is that they fuel us to go beyond personal will and learn to see how the other is thinking and feeling as well. Look at the sign and the planets in your 7th house to see what you’re attracted to in a long-term partner, what are your relationship needs, how you can best manifest your relationship potential and how you can manage conflicts in your life.
