Saturn in 7th House

Saturn in 7th house astrology model

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You may have withdrawn from intimacy in past lives; if so, you have chosen to be confronted with it in this one. The test with Saturn in your seventh house is one you avoided before: cooperation with and empathy for your intimate partner. Your marriage is either early or delayed, and frequently you're attracted to an older person. Relationships are so important to you that they can be a stumbling block at times. It may be difficult for you to be close, since you're so demanding of others. It's easier for you to go it alone, but you won't learn as much. You are not satisfied with superficialities.

If Saturn is within 8° of the descendant (seventh house cusp), then it is conjunct the descendant and much of the foregoing is even more strongly emphasized. If Saturn 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 Saturn 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 Saturn expresses itself primarily—and eventually entirely—through 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.
