The seventh house is the house of other people in the way they relate to the native. Or, more exactly, in the way in which the native sees others. While the first house represents how the native appears to others and the fourth house how the native sees him/herself, the seventh house represents how others appear to the native. The seventh house represents the general nature of the native's outlook on the world. It represents partnerships of all kinds—marriage, business, etc. Partnerships in business and in life are seventh house matters.

w hen Aries in The 7-th House
The native's personality has to be turned on by others. He/she does not take the initiative. He/she is considerably subject to outside domination in most of his/her affairs. This is generally unfavorable for smooth or peaceful relations with partners or in other alliances. The native lends him/herself to control by others yet resists at the same time, leading to fights and aggressive acts. To work effectively with such person, one must live up to his/her expectations and meet him/her half way.
w hen Taurus in The 7-th House
The native lends him/herself to agreeable domination by others to whom he/she is attracted and for attractive reasons. The native has an agreeable talent for getting along with others and creating affectionate reactions him/herself. This is a happy and fortunate pattern for all kinds of social relationships. The native is primarily controlled or influenced by the other party. Often, marriage and other partnerships bring material benefits.
w hen Gemini in The 7-th House
The native's talkative personality is directed at getting along with people and devising schemes to hold people together and minimize any differences that would keep them apart. This is a position favorable for debate and contests between speakers and for settling legal differences or controversial views otherwise un-reconcilable. The ideal partner for the native must exhibit the qualities of Gemini; bright, quick-witted, diverse, and always fun.
w hen Cancer in The 7-th House
The influence of Cancer in the seventh house suggests an emotional attachment to the marital partner. The native is again subject to a filter or intermediary between outside stimulation (or inspiration) and his/her own reception or awareness. The native in this case must get his/her sources from others. And others in the process are largely responsible for the shape and/or direction of the native's emotional responses.
w hen Leo in The 7-th House
The native tends to be attracted to a partner who is dynamic, dramatic, strong, and vital. Oddly, the Aquarius personality is inclined to seek a mate that is a close reflection of the ego, or of what the native feels about him/herself. The stronger his/her ego and sense of self-esteem, the more likely he/she is to marry one with such qualities. If the native's sense of self-esteem is not strong, the person he/she attracts will tend to have similar deficiencies. There is the likelihood of a negative power struggle, both of them hoping the other will control the reins. There can be conflict in the marriage because both native and his/her partner will express willful natures.
w hen Virgo in The 7-th House
The Virgo found in the seventh house indicates a need for a mate or a partner who will compensate for the native's lack of efficiency. Generally, this is a somewhat stronger and more constructive pattern for the Virgo personality because, while others control the native, they are interested in him/her and he/she is liable to get better assignments than he/she would generally choose or accept for him/herself. Two heads or two egos are better in this pattern because the Virgo personality subjects him/herself to any tasks, which may not really be worth his/her best efforts.
w hen Libra in The 7-th House
The native is especially gifted in dealing with all kinds of people. Such person always seems to be ready to compromise at just the right moment in order to strengthen the other person's hand. Fortunately, this native attracts a diplomatic partner who knows not to contradict him/her directly, but uses tact to maneuver and lead him/her.
w hen Scorpio in The 7-th House
The Scorpio located in the seventh house suggests much energy devoted to social relationships, especially the marriage. The native enters into secret negotiations or waits until fortuitous events cast him/her into the role meant for him/her. The native is a bit more aware of the spiritual consequences of his/her commitments and seeks intuitive guidance in these matters. There is always much compulsiveness and force associated with marriage and partnerships, and the native's mate may be inwardly powerful and dynamic.
w hen Sagittarius in The 7-th House
The native receives fortunate cooperation from others, who favor him with material benefits. Marriage usually comes because of the native's need for companionship, more than a need for sex and mothering, or security. With Jupiter ruling the marriage house, this becomes another area of the chart that is blessed with good fortune.
w hen Capricorn in The 7-th House
The native is drawn to others who are older to discipline him/her and provide the golden key that will make it possible for him/her to earn some degree of recognition in life. Other firm, severe types have a strong influence on the native and retain a close grip on all his/her affairs. The Saturn type as a mate is the parent figure, who is there to give a solid base, be supportive and responsible.
w hen Aquarius in The 7-th House
The native is oddly affected by others with whom he/she suddenly comes into contact. Others act as a catalyst for the native in bringing him/her into unusual contact with certain factors that he/she understands and can make use of. Partners will be friends, and the most fruitful relationships for this person are likely to be those that remain detached, and those in which the two of them are not so demanding upon one another.
w hen Pisces in The 7-th House
The native takes his/her cue from others who drift in and out of his/her life mainly for the expressed purpose of delivering an inspirational message. The native sees life as a pageant performed in a mist, where no one is clearly defined and no standards are absolute. He/she feels that all we need to know will be revealed to us at the right time and what we do not need to know is blessedly lost in the mist. The native has no fear of others or what will be revealed to him/her by others. Everything fits nicely in place, and in the end the picture is made whole and complete.
