So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 7th house Lord in 1st house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Aquarius Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 7th house with Leo sign and sits in the 1st house in the sign of Aquarius. As Sun is in the enemy sign of Saturn, it shows that this person naturally attracts all the authoritative figures in life, who come and due to their egoistic ways, shatters his ego. This person may be in a Scientific or Research Oriented Career in a large organisation or working for a larger goal and that's where they will get their Authority. It also shows that spouse is egoistic and triesto change the native through his/her ego.
Moon - So it is Capricorn Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 7th house with Cancer sign and sits in 1st house in Capricorn. This shows that your spouse is a very emotional person and tries to connect with native on mental basis but as Moon is again in enemy sign, it shows that native is unable to connect with spouse properly. He feels kind of restricted relation with spouse, specially mentally. It shows that your spouse tells you to be practical about life but as Moon is in enemy sign, doesn't get proper response. It also shows a restricted relation with Mother for various reason.
Mars - Mars can be 7th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Libra Ascendant - So if it is Libra Ascendant, Mars rules 7th & 2nd house and sits in 1st house in Libra sign. It shows that you get your sense of individuality from your spouse. Mars is in a not friendly sign, so it is kind of average situation where you have arguments, fights and dominance struggle with your spouse and at other times you have passion in your relation especially as Mars is in the sign of relationship. It also shows that other people whom you come in contact with are very dominant by nature and you end up in having struggle in understanding them.
Taurus Ascendant - Now if it is Taurus Ascendant, Mars rules 7th & 12th house and sits in 1st house in Taurus sign. This is similar position as Mars is again in Venus ruled sign. Additionally, it shows that you go through some transformative events in married life. Also, it shows that other people are helpful in developing your wealth as Taurus is sign of Wealth. So, it is a good placement for being a businessman. But dominance, arguments and passion will remain in relationship.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 7th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Sagittarius Ascendant - If it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Mercury rules 7th & 10th houses and sits in 1st house in Sagittarius. This shows a very communicative spouse. Spouse knows a great deal about religions, philosophies and different ethnicity etc. Spouse has higher wisdom which is now brought to the native. As Mercury is a natural communicator, this position is very good for being a Professor as Sagittarius is sign of Higher Learning. So, this person can easily teach others through his higher knowledge. This person may be a voracious reader and loves to travel at different places.
Pisces Ascendant - If it is Pisces Ascendant, then Mercury rules 4th and 7th house and sits in 1st house in Pisces, where it is debilitated. Here, higher learning is substituted by Spiritual Learning. If Mercury is in Revati Nakshatra then it is surely a very good Author. This person will get a spouse who is more a spiritual bent of mind rather than religious. This person will critically analyse the concepts of Spirituality and will go into deep details of spiritual views of others. This can be termed as Spiritual Speaker rather than any Religious one, but if they go in writing then it would be great.
Venus - Venus also can be 7th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Scorpio Ascendant - If it is Scorpio Ascendant, Venus rules 7th & 12th house and sits in 1st house in Scorpio sign. As Venus is ruler of 7th house, it shows a very beautiful spouse but at the same time it shows that spouse has to deal with transformation of the native as Scorpions generally live a life of full of ups and downs. It also shows a relationship filled with passion as Venus is in Mars ruled sign but going through transformation in love matters is destiny. As Venus is all about beauty, these people are center of attraction and gets attention of people very quickly, almost naturally.
Aries Ascendant - If it is Aries Ascendant, Venus rules 2nd & 7th house and sits in 1st house in Aries. This relationship goes into dominance struggle as Venus is in the sign of Aries, i.e. sign of individuality, Here, native and spouse both will try to assert their individuality which will lead to dominance struggle. A common event which happens here is that as Venus represents Wealth, both partners want to hoard their separate wealth which leads to suspicion and arguments. This is also a good position for being a business man as wealth is coming from other people.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 7th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Gemini Ascendant - If it is Gemini Ascendant, Jupiter rules 7th & 10th house and sits in 1st house in Gemini Sign. A Preacher as a Spouse, lol. So, here native gets a spouse who is very Learned and Philosopher type of. This spouse gives all his knowledge and wisdom to the native to the extent that they change native's religious views. This person can also go into the field of teaching as Jupiter is in Gemini sign, a sign of communication and Jupiter is natural teacher. As Jupiter is karaka of Wealth, it shows that you get a very wealthy spouse.
Virgo Ascendant - If it is Virgo Ascendant, Jupiter rules 4th & 7th house and sits in 1st house in Virgo. It shows almost same things as Jupiter is in Mercury ruled sign again but the biggest difference may be that spouse will bring spiritual knowledge here and person will be in the field of analysis and study of wealth as an Accountant or Auditor. Rest things may be similar.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 7th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 7th house lord, Saturn in 1st house (for Cancer/Leo Ascendants respectively) shows that person will get a spouse who will bring responsibility, serious outlook and focus in person's life. Here relationship is not about Bollywood Romance but real serious stuff like burdens of marriage. Romance takes a back seat here. He will have to go through lots of hardships in finding his right life path. He will get success only when he puts his best effort. Normally, they get success only after mid 30s. They always have this sense of under achievement in their life. In this position, person has a very serious outlook towards life. They always want to be in discipline and keep everyone in order. They are not one of those fun loving people. Life becomes easier after 30. It is advisable that they should delay their marriage till 30s as Saturn aspects 7th house of marriage.
Rahu - If Rahu is 7th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 1st house in Leo then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Leo in 1st house will transform Rahu as Sun as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. So, it will become much like Sun in 1st house as discussed above but at the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Leo in Ascendant basically indicates that this person wants to shine as bright as Sun. They want and demand all the limelight possible. This can be a position of a big Celeb as Leo is sign of being on stage and Rahu explodes that nature out of proportion. So, they do whatever they can to be a famous person. At the same time, Rahu in Ascendant adds illusion to personality, means they may be super hero in front of people but completely opposite in private life, which is very common with Celebs.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 7th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 1st house in Taurus 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 actually separates person from himself, which means these people have lack of self-value or self-worth. They feel that other people are more blessed than them. They need a mentor on daily basis to remind them how blessed they are. As Ketu is in Taurus, it shows that these people are not too much about hoarding wealth and possessions in life. They will be disinterested towards money aspect of life.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
