Everybody is eager to know the effects of different planets in the 7th house of their horoscope. 7th house deals with marriage, spouse, characteristic of spouse and marital harmony. The Natural karaka of marriage and the 7th house is Venus as its Mool-Trikon sign Libra is the natural 7th house of the zodiac, but is the placement of planets in the 7th house beneficial ?
No, The classics say that the 7th house is best when empty having no planets placed in the 7th house, it is best not to have any planets placed there in the horoscope, the karaka venus when placed there is also said to spoil the 7th, as per the “karako bhav nashaya”. Even the the muhurta for marriage is selected it is best to leave the 7th house empty having no planets placed in the 7th but who knows so much astrology, casting of muhurta is also done very loosely by astrologers now-a-days. Muhurta chart also holds a lot of importance as it is the chart at the time of solemnization of marriage which can be treated as an independent horoscope to see further life of the couple, but who cares to do all this and neither are many astrologers aware of it and the importance of muhurta.
The logic behind empty 7th house could be that it is the descendant, descending house of the horoscope, when the sun sets down in the west, any planet setting down is cannot be auspicious. Except saturn no planet has digbala in the 7th house, a saturn in 7th house is considered very strong, but then a planet like saturn is not the one to have enjoyments and pleasures of marriage. Okay ! so there is nothing to worry even if you have planets placed in the 7th house, Yes too many malefic influence on 7th will cause problems in married life or separation. We will take a look at the effects of different planets in the 7th house below.
Effects of sun in the 7th house
This is the house where the sun sets in the west during the evening, hence sun is not much favorable in this house, sun represents discipline, rules & regulations, law, power, ruling etc with which it is not possible to enjoy marriage. Sun in 7th will make your partner very disciplined, strict, dominating who may be more concerned about his image in the outer world, sun will give a bald look, receding hair-line with a big forehead, your partner will be a smart, dashing guy but sun is also a separative planet and hence will not let you enjoy married life much, The marriage will be a kind of discipline for you, sun is fire and burns everything coming in contact with him and hence can affect marriage if placed adversely with other malefics, you can expect your partner to be a good father, good husband, good disciplinarian but he won’t be a romantic man who loves to enjoy and seek pleasures.
Effects of Moon in the 7th
A planet like moon in the 7th is still a welcome thing provided it has good paksha bala and aspect of benefics, such a moon will give you an extra-sensitive and emotional partner, he will be very caring and protective of you like a mother is of her child, but don’t expect a high voltage romance like that of mars and venus, you will love him but it will get irritating at times when he shows over protectiveness and concern which can put you off totally. His love is more of a motherly figure than that of a romantic passion. He can be a dreamer, artist who can do poems, visualize things, do good cooking, he can basically be a nice manager at home taking care of all your needs. Moon shows somebody who will have a pleasing appearance with soft skills, they may have a tendency to gain weight easily due to a water sign. Afflicted moon will give an emotionally unstable and weak partner who can be given to habits like drinking easily.
Tip : Moon is a planet which is always growing and diminishing in size as per paksha, The karakatwa of whatever house owned by moon or whatever house moon is placed in the horoscope will result in ups and downs like tides of the ocean.
Effects of Mars in the 7th
Mars indicates Energy, Passion, Drive, adventure. Mars in the 7th house shows somebody who has all these traits, The mool-trikon sign of mars is Aries which shows fight with the head (brain), and Exaltation is capricorn which is the natural 10th house showing karma-wadi people, Mars shows fighters but with brains according to my experience, a good mars will give a good strong brain (ek baar commitment kardi to apne aap ki aur apne baap ki bhi nahi sunta type partners), they are like chess players planning moves tactfully to make the opponent loose. Mars in 7th will give excessive sexual appetite and hence can indicate somebody who has animal instincts and possibility of physical abuse by a partner can also be there, forceful sex etc if afflicted. Mars will give good height, looks, broad shoulders, well maintained physic if in aries in scorpio it will show somebody with mysterious personality, striking eyes which may be hypnotic, high sex appetite, very possessive and jealous, having interest in occult, technology, and somebody who will always doubt. Aries is the positive mars and scorpio is the negative mars, they can be saints or sinners of high order both to the extremes.
Effects of Mercury in the 7th
Mercury in the 7th house will give a very jolly, childish, always optimistic, somebody having good sense of humor types partner. He will have mischievous looks with a good attractive and shrewd smile on his face, these people look mischievous from their face itself, other traits include critic, calculative, always thinking about business and money, finance, always having some or the other tension in his mind and lost into it, worried about his health at all the time, the earlier were the traits of gemini and later of virgo. Mercury will generally give one who has a good personality and a sense of humor and wants to enjoy life, you have a very light optimistic mood partner who can never be sad in life. He may be most probably connected to trading, business, finance, marketing or communication.
Effects of Venus in the 7th
Venus is the natural karaka of the 7th house and will indicate a partner which is very romantic, beautiful, well dressed and well cultured in outlook. He will have a good taste of things in life and will keep environment pleasant even in the poorest of conditions, such people are always pleasant to be as they will induce you with their charm and positivity, they are like sweets the more you eat the more you want. Venus in 7th will give a wheatish to fair complexion and a great amount of charm or some magnetic attraction about him/her. But remember Venus in the 7th by the classical dictum becomes “karako bhav nashaya” can spoil marital happiness inspite of having a beautiful partner, it can be like he always being busy with his hi profile social circles and kitty parties leaving no time for you to enjoy and spend time with each other, A venus in libra will give a well balanced partner, with intellectual bent of mind and an ability to keep everybody happy, he will also take good care of you and be a good spouse, but the negative traits mentioned about are mostly of tauras venus who wants pomp and splendor, everything should beautifully decorated and maintained is their motto.
Effects of Jupiter in the 7th
Jupiter in the 7th is not much of a beneficial position to have, it is like having a temple pundit in the bedroom. Jupiter mostly gives a very cultured and a loyal partner who will dedicate his life completely to your service if it is well placed, but it does not necessarily bestow a good married life and conjugal life. your partner will be the best in terms of handling every responsibility, but he need not be a great romantic person. Jupiter gives a fair partner with broad shoulders and good physique if in dhanu, pieces will show somebody who tends to be over weight or bulky, but very noble in thoughts and actions, a clean person having no bad thinking about anybody, Pieces will kind of show a brahmin types satvik person whereas sagittarius will show a kshatriya types personality ready to attack and give full protection.

Saturn partners will be very matured than their actual age, they can also look either very old or very young than their age, most probably they will look older to their age with a heavy, serious and matured look. Saturn will show long term strong relationship but that won’t mean that they have a great marriage and a great conjugal life, saturn shows more of responsibilities, the relationship is strong due to good understanding and respect for each other than romance and love, saturn gives somebody who is very hard working, responsible of his duties and karma oriented person. Physically one may have an emaciated look, protruded and strong visible bones in the body in form of joints, chin may be protruded and clearly more visible, sometimes saturn gives very good height, mostly these people are tall or little over medium height.

Your partner may be unsystematic w.r.t to work and life.
