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.
