The Seventh House

May 24, 2019

The 7th house is the house of relationships. Not just marriage and romance but also business, friends, and other types of partnerships. Enemies also fall under this house! The 7th house also covers law and public relations. So yeah...lots of things about getting along with others.

The 7th house is associated with the sign Libra, which is the seventh sign of the zodiac. Venus would be the ruling planet. It would be considered cardinal and would belong to the air element. It's also one of the "angular houses." When a planet sits in the natal 7th, it may have something to say about your relationships, including how you form them and interact with others. If a planet transits your 7th, it could impact a partnership.

Episode 64: The Vertex. The Vertex. It sounds like some sort of superhero, right? But it's not. It's another one of those weird astrological points that may not be used all the time but it's still interesting nonetheless. The vertex symbolizes some fated love type thing. It's pretty interesting - and well worth getting to know. Especially if you believe in love at first sight or that sort of stuff.

The Finger of Yod (also called the Finger of Fate in some circles) is formed by two planets in a sextile making quincunxes to a third. It indicates a mission - or a blockage. It's considered "rare" but I found that I was surrounded by 'em.
