In the articles I’ve written on house overlays so far, I’ve looked at how someone could activate your compulsions (8th House), your inner child (5th House) and your blind spot (12th House). Now I’ll explore the 7th House of committed partnerships. If someone’s planets activate this area of your chart, the traditional analysis is that you’ll want to marry them. While this could be one outcome, there’s much more to it.
This article on the 7th House describes it as your projected qualities. Sometimes these qualities manifest as what you admire about the planet person, to the point where you want to be them. At other times, the person who activates your 7th House becomes another in a long line of “types that you always fall for”; you can predict the unpleasant outcome. No matter which category the planet person falls into, there’s usually an instant recognition (on your part) that your attraction is more than sexual. You want to build a one-on-one relationship with them.
