So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 7th house Lord in 4th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Aquarius Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 7th house with Leo sign and sits in the 4th house in the sign of Taurus. It shows that you get a spouse who is very authoritative and egoist. It shows someone who tries to overtake the role of your mother at home and wants to bring his/her own authority and that leads to arguments within home. At the same time, as Sun is in Taurus sign which is sign of Wealth, your spouse though adds to your wealth but as Sun is in enemy sign, person never feels satisfied with the amount of wealth.
Moon - So it is Capricorn Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 7th house with Cancer sign and sits in 4th house in Aries. This shows a Spouse who is very active. If Moon is in Ashvini Nakshatra, it very much shows a Doctor or Nurse. Spouse is very active and action oriented here. Spouse will also make you action oriented. At the same time, spouse will be very motherly and nourishing but he/she is someone who will try to bring everything in home in order.
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 4th house in Capricorn sign, where Mars is exalted. This shows a spouse who is very strong-willed and dominating force. Here, dominating is in positive sense. Like, after marriage, if any problem arises at your home, spouse will consider as own problem and fight till the end. As it always happens with Mars, it leads to Arguments. Here, Arguments will be for good cause and higher motives. Here, Mother is also very strong willed. Person will get into lots of real-estate things after marriage. Spouse will work like a protector to home.
Taurus Ascendant - Now if it is Taurus Ascendant, Mars rules 7th & 12th house and sits in 4th house in Leo sign. Here also, Mars is in his best friends' sign, so we can see similar results here. Here also, Spouse will have great urge to do good things towards the native's home. Here, spouse may be of a position of high authority. Spouse may be working for local govt. Person will be of high will too but again, every argument taking place is for the higher common benefit of home.
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 4th house in Pisces, where it is debilitated. This shows a communicative spouse and someone who has high imagination powers. It means that this person can have great imaginary thoughts which he can turn into writing in the privacy of home. Their imagination works only in the home or private settings. Here, spouse can be a great author.
Pisces Ascendant - If it is Pisces Ascendant, then Mercury rules 4th and 7th house and sits in 4th house in Gemini. This shows a spouse who is also very communicative but now communications are very analytical and detailed. They are very perfect about their communications. This can show a spouse as doing Accountant, Auditor or Editor type of work from home or private settings. In both the positions of Mercury, communication is foundation of marriage, If they can't communicate well in relationship, it won't prosper for a long time.
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 4th house in Aquarius sign. It shows that your spouse has great Scientific and Innovative mind. It also shows that your spouse may be working in some Large Organization and Wealth is coming into home from there. In Venus in 4th house condition, Spouse brings Wealth into Home. Spouse loves dealing with home matters in innovative ways. Beautiful Spouse is obvious when Venus is 7th house lord. It may also show that you may be doing a home based business in Female or Beauty Products.
Aries Ascendant - If it is an Aries Ascendant, Venus rules 2nd & 7th house and sits in 4th house in Cancer. Although in an enemy sign, Venus in Cancer in 4th house truly shows a spouse who loves to beautify home. They like to keep home as Palace. They like to keep the native also in best looking condition. Again, Wealth and Prosperity is coming through Home. Again, a business related to Female or Beauty Products is a great possibility. Additionally, these people will be highly motivated towards interior decoration or any Beautification related Business.
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 4th house in Virgo Sign. As always, Jupiter as 7th house lord brings a spouse of higher wisdom. As here, 7th lord is in 4th house, it shows that your spouse is bringing all the wisdom to home. Here, Spouse and Mother become kind of
guiding light for whole life. As Jupiter represents Wealth & Finance and it is in sign of Virgo which is all about Details & Analysis, it shows someone very good with numbers and working as Accountant and Auditor. It also means that after marriage, native gets a huge house to live in.
Virgo Ascendant - If it is Virgo Ascendant, Jupiter rules 4th & 7th house and sits in 4th house in Sagittarius. This is even better position as Jupiter is also in its own sign in 4th house. This is like getting married to Gautama Buddha. A highly Spiritual person. Religious and Spiritual discussions will be part of home environment. Religious rituals will be the course of home life. Wealth, Prosperity and Big Home will be there but life will revolve more around Spiritual Values.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 7th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 7th house lord, Saturn in 4th house (for Cancer/Leo Ascendants respectively) shows that person's spouse may be a Lawyer, more so for Cancer Ascendants as Saturn will be exalted in Libra for them. Person can be a Judge too. Here, marriage should be delayed till 30 to get stability in marriage. Obviously, spouse will be an elderly and matured person, who will bring his own discipline and order in home and native may need to adjust with it. As Saturn is all about responsibility and duty, it shows that your spouse is bringing duty to your home. If Saturn is in Scorpio, then spouse or married/home life may go through a transformation. Thorough horoscope match is suggested here specially, before getting married.
Rahu - If Rahu is 7th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 4th house in Scorpio then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Scorpio in 4th house will transform Rahu as Mars 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 Scorpio in 4th house basically indicates that your spouse may be hugely interested in Occult side of life and brings the same knowledge to you. After marriage, your spouse brings unusual/weird environment to home. You have unusual relations with your mother.You may have home at foreign lands. Rahu MD may bring lots of transformation in home.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 7th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 4th house in Leo 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 the relation with mother goes for a real toss. These people are either physically separated from their mother or they feel a mental separation always. They always feel that their mother is unable to understand their point of view or vice versa. They feel that their mother was unfair to them. As Ketu is in Leo in 4th house, this person is away from all creative endeavors of life. He is happy with the routine life and doesn't want to follow the creative pursuits. They may not buy a property in their own name if they want to reside in it. At the same time, this position gives high intuition powers. This position is one of Moksha Margi position, means these people can get enlightenment and liberation if they make effort.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
