The seventh house is ruled by the zodiac sign Libra and carries with it the planetary ruler, Venus. So having a planet in this location can help you understand what you are here to learn, do, or accomplish when married.

The Seventh House is the perfect place for you to fall in love and to shift from being more self-oriented to more partner-oriented. In the Seventh House, it is very important to have a purpose.

You want to have a goal that you can strive to achieve. You could be striving to accomplish something small or something large for your relationship.

So, here is what astrology says it means to have a single planet in the seventh house for love, marriage, and find your future soulmate or partner.

Sun in the Seventh House

The Sun is the planetary ruler of Leo. The Sun represents the ego and Leo is known for its playfulness.

Leo is also the king of the zodiac and someone who loves to be in the limelight, and even hog it.

When you have the Sun in your Seventh House, you may find a partner who shines too brightly and is overpowering.

However, to make love last you'll have to accept their need for attention, or the relationship will not work. Sadly, these types of power struggles aren't good for relationships when the Sun is also in Leo.

For long lasting marriage,  you're likely to attract someone who has strong Leo or Aquarius traits, or who has their Venus in the sign of Leo.

Mars in the Seventh House

Mars is the planetary ruler of Aries. Aries has to be first and can make for an impatient partner. You don't want to bore an Aries or else it's bye-bye for you!

This is not good for compromise and can be very problematic if you end up with a partner who also has their Mars in the Seventh House or is a Sun in Aries person.

You are likely to attract a karmic soulmate who has strong Aries traits but the relationship won't last. It's better to choose a person with personality traits like a Gemini who will find your energy exciting.
