In astrology, the zodiac is divided into 12 houses. Each of these houses has a meaning and special significance. The seventh house is often described as the house of partnership. In this house we see a move away from focusing on the self to the acceptance and accommodation of others. Some of the different aspects of partnership in the seventh house include marriage, professional relationships, and interactions with official authorities. There are numerous motivations for coming together with another. We may choose to fill up empty spaces we sense are within ourselves, or we may simply desire the warmth and companionship of another. Through partnerships we see ourselves in perspective. In joining with others we become more constructive and supportive. Collaboration and partnership help to validate our purpose in existence. Conflicts within a partnership also help to educate us. Because of this the seventh house also emphasizes the more somber side of our unions. Litigation, contract disputes, and separations all fall within this house as well. Our response to these hardships will influence our partnerships in the future.
