Do you look to your partner to mother you? Does your love life fluctuate as often as the ebb and flow of the tides? Have you chosen ice cream over marriage? If any of these symptoms apply to you, you’re a candidate for Moon in the Seventh House disorder. Consult a professional immediately!
The horoscope is broken up into twelve sections called houses, each of which symbolizes a different area of life. The Seventh House is the portion of the sky just above the western horizon at the moment of your birth. Any planets that were setting when you popped out of your mother are in this house. It is the area of your chart that concerns significant partnerships, whether marital or business.
The Moon symbolizes mother, child, wife, home, food … the whole family matrix. It is also the planet of emotions, the past, and instinctual habits. The Moon relates to how we nurture ourselves and others, as well as what gives us a sense of belonging.
If you’re born with the Moon in your Seventh House, you will try to get your lunar needs met within a partnership. There can be a lot of caretaking in a marriage or with clients or a business partner. You may seek a maternal partner or take on that role yourself. Codependency is possible, as you may put the other’s needs above your own. (Your Moon sign will dictate how you nurture.)
The Moon moves through a whole cycle in about 28 days, so fluctuation will occur in whatever House the Moon inhabits. You can expect some inconsistency in your partnerships — not the sudden changes brought on by Uranus in the Seventh, but more like subtle shifts, changes in mood.
And since the Moon rules food and other ways that we ‘feed’ ourselves, you may choose to marry your refrigerator … because lemon meringue pie doesn’t ask where you were last night.
Some useful interpretations from elsewhere:
You are very open and responsive to the needs of others, and you have to take in their feelings whether you want to or not. You choose partners that are sensitive and emotional types, but they’ll tend to be unstable if your moon is weakened by sign or aspect. Your feelings go through a lot of changes in regard to your partners, yet they mean a lot to you. They’re a primary source of strength, and you look to them for support and encouragement. In fact, you may feel that its difficult for you to get in touch with your own feelings other than within the context of a relationship. (MyAstrologyBook)
Moon in the Seventh House can give a moody partner. Conversely, your attitude towards the partner and partnerships in general constantly changes and goes through cycles. The partner will either tend to be good at domestic tasks and will “mother” you (this goes for both men and women) or will shift the domestic burdens to you and demand that you mother them. You yourself may become moodier after marriage (don’t we all! But not as much as this) or, more positively, more expressive emotionally. (BobMarksAstrologer)
