The seventh House relates mainly to marriage, family circumstances, spouse, sex and genitals. Our subject under study we note has the constellation Capricorn situated here and the significator of conjugal matters, the planet Venus also located here. Capricorn is owned by Saturn who is located in the eleventh House, the house of profit and gain. Furthermore the eleventh House is owned by Venus by virtue of its ownership of Taurus located there. Thus we find that Venus and Saturn are in a special relationship of ‘exchange of Houses’, each being located in a House where there is a constellation owned by the other. This becomes noteworthy because both are friends and therefore occupy a House owned by a friend. Jupiter aspects the seventh House and Jupiter is an enemy of Venus. In addition to the eleventh House Venus also owns the fourth Hose on account of the presence there of the constellation Libra which it owns. This then is the setting for our analysis.

Let us look first at the Sign Capricorn in the seventh House. The spouse is likely to be blunt, worldly-wise and diligent but taciturn and tending to avoid company, from an ordinary family looking up to the subject. Family of the spouse will play a prominent part in the life of the subject.

As Saturn is powerful in the chart and owner of the seventh and eight Houses the spouse will be long-lived, rich, but blunt in speech. The subject will gain from his spouse’s activities. These are only general observations arising from placement of Capricorn in the seventh House and likely to be modified and elaborated on the basis of other factors.

Venus is significator of wife, marriage and sex. Its placement in a House of which it is the significator is not considered favourable. This may cause trouble in the marriage for one or the other reason. Yet the subject will be a handsome person of refined taste. He will also gain through his spouse and be wealthy and artistic.

Venus in Capricorn ( different inflection from Venus in the seventh House though these add up together to provide a more detailed picture) would make the subject popular among women though he would be faithful in his sentiments to his spouse. However his marriage may get delayed and may not be in entirely fortunate circumstances. Furthermore he may not be very virile. He may become wealthy in later life.

Saturn’s aspect on the House would improve its prospects. If we also take into account the fact that Saturn is the owner of the House the prospects would get further improved and finally the exchange of Houses between Venus and Saturn would enhance these positive attributes. The exchange of Houses would also create  good fortune for the subject after marriage and the spouse would like refinements and luxuries.

The presence of Saturn as the owner of the House Sign (Capricorn) in the eleventh portends that the wife would be beautiful, suave, well-behaved, rich, devoted, cooperative and of a good character and he would gain from the marriage.

The presence of Saturn in the eleventh would allow good children. It is also indicative of a sensual nature. Saturn’s presence in the eleventh also portends that the spouse of the first child will be w dominant personality. Furthermore the subject’s spouse would be a good entertainer and he may benefit from this greatly.

Venus as lord of the eleventh House of profit and gain (Labhesh) in the seventh portends that the subject would be dynamic,an achiever, rich, long-lived, one who loves his spouse, one who would seek to provide all happiness and comforts to his family.

Finally let us consider Jupiter’s aspect on the seventh House. Here the stereotype of aspecting an enemy ( Jupiter being an enemy of Venus) has to be discounted and does not apply for many reasons. Both Jupiter and Venus in mythology are Gurus, spiritual advisors, jupiter of the Devas, the demigods and Venus of the Titans and demons. Being of like philosophical nature their aspects produce a philosophical nature in the subject.

Jupiter’s aspect on any House is traditionally considered to be mana from heaven. Jupiter also transcends the stereotype of a negative aspect on an enemy House since he is lord of the Sign in the ninth House of fortune and spirituality located in the Holy Triangle. He thus becomes a benefic House lord. Additionally the lord of the seventh House, Saturn is conjunct with him in the eleventh House, so his aspect is under the benefic influence of the seventh House lord Saturn. his aspect will improve the prospects of the House all round and make the spouse devout.

So what we have learnt of the conjugal prospects of the subject by putting together all the influences and circumstances of the planets and Signs on the seventh House is the following: a beautiful, devoted, pious wife from an ordinary background, who would be fortunate for him and in fact trigger his good fortune. a fruitful marriage with nice children, even if the marriage may not turn out to be a garden of roses.

tantrum 1

Take liberties easily

With a father still alive,

Rave and rant beyond your years

Sit glum and hurt annoyed.

One privilege by right

Still yours to inflict,

Bring him to your knees

Staking your love

To bend his will;

And this one pampering

Will not return

When the world is wholly yours.


The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 21,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 8 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

family 1

We return each day to the television

To watch a spot of sweet light.

When the same child comes running up

With a lesson done well, we delight

And kiss away our worries. She comes looking

After you with what is known to please,

Her happiness is sunlight.

And Sunday comes and stills time

For you to move at will.


The expectancy of these

Help us fulfill the long hours.


And if these fade away

The hours lengthen

Until there are no more any lessons

And her interest is kind of diffused.

But Sunday comes still

And you are forced to move at will.


The Sixth House is a dark place. It signifies enemies, thieves, obstacles, dangers, vices and sin, cruelty, humiliation, indebtedness, competetion, poison, maternal uncle, and step mother. The presence here of Sagittarius here for our subject of study, indicates that he will trap animals and enjoy keeping pets in cages or be fond of hunts. His maternal uncle will be a truthful and just person who will be helpful to the subject. the subjects children will do well in examinations and be financially secure. He may suffer from diseases of the liver and pancreas. He may be blunt and offend people with his frankness. He would travel in connection with his job.

Jupiter a benefic planet, as lord of Sagittarius and therefore lord of the Sixth House in this case, being located in the eleventh House indicatesthat he would be in service and overcome enemies. He will also be successful in competetion. He may gain through his maternal uncle. The subject would also not be a person who antagonizes people. Sixth lord with Saturn in the same house ( the eleventh)( indicates health problemsat some time during the Saturn phase (Dasha).

tagore x

Thou hast made me endless, such is thy pleasure. This frail vessel thou emptiest again and again, and fillest it ever with fresh life.

This little flute of a reed thou hast carried over hills and dales, and hast breathed through it melodies eternally new.

At the immortal touch of thy hands my little heart loses its limits in joy and gives birth to utterance ineffable.

Thy infinite gifts come to me only on these very small hands of mine. Ages pass, and still thou pourest, and still there is room to fill.


When thou commandest me to sing it seems that my heart would break with pride; and I look to thy face, and tears come to my eyes.

All that is harsh and dissonant in my life melts into one sweet harmony—and my adoration spreads wings like a glad bird on its flight across the sea.

I know thou takest pleasure in my singing. I know that only as a singer I come before thy presence.

I touch by the edge of the far-spreading wing of my song thy feet which I could never aspire to reach.

Drunk with the joy of singing I forget myself and call thee friend who art my lord.


I know not how thou singest, my master! I ever listen in silent amazement.

The light of thy music illumines the world. The life breath of thy music runs from sky to sky. The holy stream of thy music breaks through all stony obstacles and rushes on.

My heart longs to join in thy song, but vainly struggles for a voice. I would speak, but speech breaks not into song, and I cry out baffled. Ah, thou hast made my heart captive in the endless meshes of thy music, my master!


Rabindranath Tagore

”A saint is a sinner who never gave up trying”

”Every day happier than yesterday: that is the standard of spiritual life”

”Teach me to dig with the pick-axe of my peace deeper and deeper into the soil of silence, until the water of Thy presence gushes forth and I am bathed in Thy bliss. Teach me to look for Thee in myself until I realize that it is Thou who hast become I”


Gorgeous flower anemone,

Body is venomous,

Pretty faced hegemony

As the prey approaches,

Brilliant coloured anomaly,

Overwhelmingly odorous

As hidden mouth ravenous

Probes its victims body,

Consuming carnivorous,

Holding in pink tentacles

In enchanting paralysis,

Entirely lost

In gorging flower anemone’s

Colourful nemesis.





A broken thread of trust

Must knot and knot again.

A dark indelible stain

On a white sheet is shame

And boughs that will not bend will break,

Volcanic emotions erupt,

Fiery tempers incinerate,

Still waters run deep,

Resolutions stand like rocks,

Careers at their peaks,

Civilizations that rise must fall like waves,

And males and females in fact

Like opposite poles attract.


Prototypes in nature

Frame our very circumstance,

Fix our reflex,

Are the alphabets 

That spell out our context;


For problems do resolve like solutions,

Crises precipitate,

Catalysts are also human agents,

Chain reactions can devastate,

In history as in chemistry,

As elements compound 

So issues complicate,

Like an organism

Ideas too can proliferate,



How curious

that physical analogies

Ring true of our predicaments,

Exist like primordial metaphors,

Define our contours;

The paradigms reaching across

A far flung cosmos.




Comet in the sky

You smite me distant traveler

With some strange nostalgia,

Far away going away

Every night for a while.


Comet in the sky

Your light has tanned

My naked eye,

Touched my retina

With a new age,

Burrowed into my mind.


You surprise

Like a distant train

In the wilderness

Hurtling on its way.


Siberian crane

You fill me with compassion

For your lonely furious pilgrimage

To another millennium.


Visitor from another age,

Your searing glorious passage,

Primordial image,

Like a messiah come

To  disturb our settled equilibrium.
