The Seventh House ~ Autumn


The seventh house is associated with the ‘other’, open enemies, long-term relationships, marriage and official partnerships. It is an important angular house that is in opposition to the ascendant. The descendant degree and its ruler often describes the partner or one’s behaviour in romantic relationships. It corresponds with the zodiac sign of Libra.

“It giveth judgement of marriage, and describes the person inquired after, whether it be man or woman; all manner of love questions, our public enemies; the defendant in a lawsuit, in war the opposing party; all quarrels, duels, law-suits; in Astrology the artist himself; in physic the physician; thieves and thefts; the person stealing, whether man or woman; wives, sweethearts; their shape, description, condition, nobly or ignobly born.

In an annual ingress whether war or peace may be expected: of victory, who overcomes, and who worsted; fugitives or run-aways; banished and out-lawed men.It hath cosignificator Libra and Moon, Saturn or Mars unfortunate herein show ill in marriage.
Of colour, a dark black colour. It ruleth the haunches, and the navel to the buttocks; and is called the Angle of the West; and is masculine.”
