Tina wrote in response to Uranus in the Seventh House:
I recently saw a birthchart report that said Uranus in the 7th means unfaithfulness. Does Uranus in the 7th house automatically mean infidelity/unfaithfulness? Can it just mean needing space or change in the relationship? Let’s say a person has sun in Capricorn or a Taurus ascendant or Venus in Taurus? Wouldn’t the “stability” of those planets tame the restlessness somehow?
On a not so related note…I personally have Uranus in my 1st and a moon in Libra. I have had descriptions state that my moon in Libra can make me unfaithful in relationships yet I have never cheated in any of my relationships and also have never had an affair with someone in a relationship.I AM very independant due to Uranus in my 1st and need space but I prefer to be faithful. As a matter of fact infidelity seems offensive to me. Sure I get tempted like everybody else does but I have never acted on those impulses. I wonder if that may be cause of my … Venus in Taurus “taming” that effect in some way? And if in that same regard can a person who has Uranus in their 7th be a bit more restrained due to startegically placed earth signs in their chart.
Computerized astrology reports are a mixed bag. They provide lots of useful interpretations, but without any integration of chart factors, or any human touch, for that matter. They’re much less expensive than a consultation with a professional astrologer, but you get what you pay for. Although they are most of the time written by professional astrologers, quality varies, as some astrologers are better than others. In addition, some great astrologers are lousy writers. (Full Disclosure: I am an affiliate and employee of Tarot.com, which sells astrology reports.)
Any astrological placement has a variety of meanings. It doesn’t come alive until it is placed within the context of the whole chart. As in Gestalt philosophy, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. An astrology report provides many “parts,” but cannot provide a perspective of the “whole.”
I hope the report you read noted unfaithfulness as only one of many possible expressions of Uranus in the Seventh, for that would be plain irresponsible. Yes, the Uranian imperative to experience independence in marriage can lead to infidelity, but I wouldn’t call that its highest expression. (See my related post, The Seventh House curse of Uranus on the Descendant?)
As you wisely wrote, the strong presence of the earth element in one’s chart would temper one’s propensity to go wild and crazy in relationships. In your chart, Venus in Taurus is the dispositor (or ruler) of your Moon in Libra, so this yearning for relationship stability informs your instinctual responses. But anyways, I don’t see how Moon in Libra would correspond with unfaithfulness. One, you need to be in a relationship to feel secure; and two, it’s just plain vulgar.
