Neptune in Seventh house

Neptune in 7th house astrology model

The first of the social houses, the seventh house is opposed to the first house literally and in emphasis: in the first house we put our energies into the world; in the seventh the world puts energy back into us. The purpose of the seventh house is to bring about greater self-awareness through relating to what we experience as being outside of ourselves. This may in fact be energy within us that we have rejected out of fear or the need to experience it more objectively or externally. This is called projection, and we seek projected parts of ourselves in our intimate relationships.

Thus the seventh house rules intimate one-to-one relationships of all kinds (including marriage, business and counseling relationships), open enemies and conflicts, lawsuits and the lower courts. Planets in the seventh house indicate areas in our lives that need relationships to bring them out, and the houses ruled by seventh house planets are those "areas." Many planets here indicate many needs that we are looking for others to fill. In this case many relationships (or more than one marriage) is probable, as it’s unlikely that one individual would fill all those needs. Individuals with so much projected energy feel a void in their lives, and may encourage others to be dependent, or even pick fights rather than be alone.

You have a dream of finding an ideal soul mate, and a vision of what marriage is all about. This constant yearning after your ideals or for perfection regarding your partners leads to illusion and/or deception, so you need to be honest with yourself and exercise discrimination in partnership. Marriage for you is unusual and often to someone not on your wavelength. You're attracted to sensitive, artistic, spiritual and/or mysterious types, who may also indulge in alcohol or drugs. Your partner wants to escape from the restrictions and the mundane aspects of the material world, and you are allured by their quest. You will be asked to make personal sacrifices in partnership: to give more than is returned, perhaps not to have important needs fulfilled, or to be linked with someone who is not completely free. Depending on your aspects to Neptune, there may also be to deception and secretiveness on your part.

If Neptune is within 10° of the descendant (seventh house cusp), then it is conjunct the descendant and much of the foregoing is even more strongly emphasized. If Neptune is in the sixth house AND within 4° or 5° of the descendant, then it is said to be on the "dark side" of the seventh house, and its influence will be felt in the seventh as well as in the sixth house. The closer a sixth house Neptune is to the descendant, the more it will be interpreted as though it were in the seventh house; when less than 3° from the descendant, a sixth house Neptune expresses itself primarily —and eventually entirely—in the seventh house.

The seventh house is that one-twelfth sector of the local sky just above the western horizon (see above picture) occupied by planets in the two hours just before they set.
