Today, 12th house lord sitting in 7th house.
So first of all, let's see what 7th house and 12th house represent -
7th house is house of market place, other people (masses), business partnerships, agreements, marriage, spouse, marital happiness etc.
12th house is house of Losses, Expenses, Isolated Places, Spirituality, Foreign Lands, Foreign Companies, Imagination, Sub-Concious Mind, Charity, Donation, Asylums, Jails, Hospitals, Hidden Talent and Secrets of Other World etc.
One thing to always keep in mind with 12th house is that it basically remains the house of losses. So, whichever planet goes in 12th house, even exalted, is in the bucket of losses. Now, to gain out of any such planet, you need to put double effort in things related with that planet.
Now, what does it mean to have 12th house lord sitting in 7th house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 12th house of your horoscope is sitting in the 7th house of horoscope.
Now, what is the impact of having 12th house lord sitting in 7th house?
Its first generic interpretation is that spouse or married life is getting linked with Foreign Lands, Foreign Companies & MNCs. This shows someone getting married to a Foreigner or spouse has some other Foreign connection. This also shows someone in International Trade or Business. It shows Foreigners help in your Business. With malefic planets in wrong dignity it shows that you may have to suffer losses in marriage or business. This also shows that someone has to spend a lot because of Spouse or Marriage. At the same time, as 12th house lord is coming 8 places away from its house, if planets are well placed, it shows transformation of expenses, i.e. nature of person's expenses will change after marriage.
Now, results may be different due to aspect, conjunctions of other planets or the planet being Retrograde or Combust. Moreover, now we also need to check the strength of 7th house lord as 12th house lord is going in 7th house. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 12th house Lord in 7th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Virgo Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 12th house with Leo sign and sits in the 7th house in the sign of Pisces. This shows person's spouse is in authoritative position in Foreign Lands or Foreign Companies. Person himself can be in authoritative position of managing people. Spouse will have a Spiritual outlook to life but as Sun represents Ego, it shows someone having ego battles with spouse and that ruins the relationship. Ego will be of 12th house related things, like losses and expenses. Like, person may incur some expenses for spouse and then keeps on reminding spouse as to what great favor he has done in relationship. It may spoil the relation in due time. It shows that Father has great role in choosing spouse.
Moon - So it is Leo Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 12th house with Cancer sign and sits in 7th house in Aquarius. This shows person's mind is on spouse and relationship always but as 7th house is ruled by Saturn, it gives a restricted and stressful relation with spouse. Here, Mother has a big role in choosing spouse. Person has a very Scientific and Innovative mind but as Saturn rules the 6th and 7th house, it gives a hard time in connecting with Spouse. Person can get linked with Spouse or Other people on basis of similar Scientific Thinking or Interests.
Mars - Mars can be 12th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Taurus Ascendant - So if it is Taurus Ascendant, Mars rules 12th & 7th house and sits in 7th house in Scorpio sign. Although Mars is in its own sign here, hence it would protect the house and person will be like a guard to spouse and marriage, but Scorpio remains the sign of changes and ups & downs. So, to expect that everything will be superfine in marriage will be like a day dreaming. There will be stress & dominance struggle in marriage. There will be some sudden events in marriage but Mars should still be able to protect the marriage. Getting married to another mangalik is recommended here.
Sagittarius Ascendant - Now if it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Mars rules 5th & 12th house and sits in 7th house in Gemini sign. Here, Mars is in enemy sign of Mercury. As Gemini is sign of communication, here marriage or relation will be impacted by aggressive communication between the partners. Arguments and Dominance struggle may become a routine here. Hence, it is again necessary to check horoscopes thoroughly at the time of marriage. Person will be equally dominant against his Business Partners.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 12th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, Mercury rules 12th & 3rd houses and sits in 7th house in Capricorn. This shows a relationship based on Communications. Spouses may also be Business Partners here as 7th house and Mercury both represent Business. But as always, as Saturn rules 7th house here, relationships may be delayed or, if happen early in life, it will be full of frustration here. Both sides need to show lots of maturity here to run a good relation.
Libra Ascendant - If it is Libra Ascendant, then Mercury rules 9th and 12th house and sits in 7th house in Aries. Again, energy exchange is between Mars and Mercury, so harsh/blunt speech may hurt the marriage badly. Person will bring lots of analytical or critical approach to marriage & spouse and obviously spouse wont like it. This would lead to disputes and arguments into marriage. Hence, person may take care of these things. Communication is still the base of relations but it should be smooth and not critical.
Venus - Venus also can be 12th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Gemini Ascendant - If it is Gemini Ascendant, Venus rules 12th & 5th house and sits in 7th house in Sagittarius sign. As Venus is karaka of relations, this is the strongest placement of person getting married to a foreigner. Venus here also rules the 5th house and sits in 7th house, which makes it a love marriage case. Spouse will be very beautiful and relationship will be pleasant. As Sagittarius is sign of Higher Learning, Spouse here may be a Professor, Teacher or a Guru sort off. Person himself has a great love towards higher education. Relationship should be based on higher moral grounds. A much better position in 7th house.
Scorpio Ascendant - If it is Scorpio Ascendant, Venus rules 7th & 12th house and sits in 7th house in Taurus. This is another good position for marriage as Venus is in own sign. As Taurus is sign of Wealth and Venus is karaka of wealth, it shows that spouse will bring lots of wealth in life. Person or Spouses may be involved in Business of Female Related Products or of Finance related. This again shows spouse bringing wealth in life. Another good position for good marriage.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 12th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, Jupiter rules 12th & 3rd house and sits in 7th house in Cancer Sign, where it is exalted. This is best position among all. Although Jupiter is functional malefic here but the fact that it is exalted, makes life easy in marriage matters. Person will have a Guru like spouse, who is always ready to counsel/guide the native. Marriage benefits will be expanded like anything. Relationship based on high morals. A great position, hence not much to say.
Aries Ascendant - If it is Aries Ascendant, Jupiter rules 9th & 12th house and sits in 7th house in Libra. This is another good position although Jupiter is in enemy sign. Jupiter & Venus are both benefic planets by nature, so their enmity doesn't cause any real loss. Here also, Spouse will be highly beneficial for person. Spouse will still be a guiding light. Spouse may be of different caste, culture etc. It shows great wealth from spouse and marriage. Another good position.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 12th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Aquarius/Capricorn) as 12th house lord, Saturn in 7th house (for Pisces/Aquarius Ascendants respectively) indicates a delayed marriage. Early marriage here won't be good. Early marriage bring stress and sudden events with spouse which may even break the relation. But if delayed, it will be a stable relation based on practicalities of life. Spouse will be of elderly age, matured and very realistic/practical about life. Spouse/Person may be working for Govt or Law Field or a Businessman. Business may be related with Iron, Steel etc. So, person must delay the marriage till 30s at least in this case. For Aquarius Ascendant, Saturn will be in Leo, sign of arch-enemy Sun. It may indicate a real stressful relation. Spouse/Person can be a Businessman/Lawyer. Bollywood Romance won't work here. Same thing goes with Business, person has to be very practical here in Business and better to do Business on own rather than in Partnership.
Rahu - If Rahu is 12th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 7th house in Virgo then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Virgo in 7th house will transform Rahu as Mercury as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. At the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Virgo in 7th house shows a marriage into a completely different religion or with a Foreigner. There will be something uniqueness attached with marriage and Business here. Rahu in 7th house is one of karaka of 2nd marriage, so it is better to go with thorough horoscope matching before marriage. Here, person looks for a perfect relationship. Hence, it may happen that they don't find it and feel dissatisfied in relation they have. It also makes them highly analytical and critical towards spouse and marriage. They seek a perfect marriage and perfect partner, hence this itself may become a cause of break up or divorce. Hence, person may take care of these things in life.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 12th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 7th house in Gemini then 1st of all we need to make sure of Mars' position as it is the main ruler. As Ketu isolates/separates a person from the things related to the house Ketu is sitting, here it separates person from the concept of being in relation. They are not one of those who are looking out for their first or next partner. They are quite content and spiritual about themselves and their relations. It always remains a possibility with Ketu in 7th house that person is disinterested towards relations. The only way relation can survive in such cases is that couple becomes highly spiritual in matters of relations, means they are happy with whomsoever they marry with no expectations at all. Conjunction/Aspect of a benefic planet may change the situation altogether. Ketu in Gemini makes person headless about what he is talking. As it is in 7th house, person may talk non-sense in relationship, without realizing the results that may spoil the marriage.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
