Like, good idea to impress them is to start a discussion on Religion and Philosophies of the world. It also shows that your spouse is bringing luck to you plus he/she is expanding your knowledge. This is one of Raj Yoga placements, as Kendra Lord sitting in Trikon House. It can also show that your Business or Career belong to Teaching/Travelling or Preaching about Religion and Philosophies. This can also show a Lawyer.
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 9th house lord as 7th house lord is going in 9th house. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 7th house Lord in 9th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Aquarius Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 7th house with Leo sign and sits in the 9th house in Libra, where it is debilitated. This shows that your spouse may be a Govt Officer or Diplomat who travels a lot due to work. It can also show a Lawyer or Creative person. If Sun is nearby the exact degrees of Debilitation then it shows that there are constant ego battles between you and your spouse which go on hurting each other's self esteem. It also shows that Father or Other Teachers you got in life were too Authoritative which burnt your confidence. If Venus is also badly placed, it might even indicate absence of Father Figure in life. Again, any other yoga or dasha can change the scenario totally.
Moon - So it is Capricorn Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 7th house with Cancer sign and sits in 9th house in Virgo. This shows that your spouse has this nature of looking into details and being perfectionist. Spouse will be nurturing and motherly but the habit of analysis, criticism and digging into details may lead to disputes. It shows that you get your peace of mind when you get involved with your spouse in discussions related to higher learning and philosophies. But again, that habit of being critical can spoil things here. You may want to let go of this habit. Here, your mother becomes your Guru.
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 9th house in Gemini sign. This shows that your spouse is a very dominant figure and one who tries to motivate you towards taking many actions. But as Mars is in enemy sign, those talks are not taken positively. Here, Communications may be very harsh or blunt which may lead to disputes in relation. At the same time, your spouse is very active person. Even for a guy, the wife is very much Tomboyish.
Taurus Ascendant - Now if it is Taurus Ascendant, Mars rules 7th & 12th house and sits in 9th house in Capricorn sign, where Mars is exalted. Here also arguments take place between couple for doing something larger than life but as Mars is in its highest dignity, those discussions are never misunderstood or never cross the lines. Here, spouse is very motivating person for native. Spouse may be in Army or other sort of Security Services. A really good position where Spouse will motivate to reach great heights in life.
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 9th house in Leo. This shows a Spouse who loves travelling around, who loves communicating about Philosophies, Religions and Law. As Leo is sign of Authority and Govt, they can be working as Spokesperson for Govt. Their way of communication will always carry a sense of Ego. Communication is foundation for relation. Spouse will be greatly interested about collecting information of different religions, philosophies and different ethnicity.
Pisces Ascendant - If it is Pisces Ascendant, then Mercury rules 4th and 7th house and sits in 9th house in Scorpio. Here also, communications are foundations of relation but here communications are of very different background like Occult, Mysticism and Secrets of Universe. They would love to get Technical or Chemical related higher education. Here, married life may go through a transformative times but as always, with benefic planets, it is never fatal.
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 9th house in Cancer sign. Love towards Education, Teaching, Preaching and Travelling. Spouse or Love interests coming from different ethnicity. Possible scenario of love marriage or online dating turned into marriage. As Venus is in enemy sign, although person attains higher education but he doesn't get desired results out of it. Likewise, they may marry someone but they always feel a disconnect in relationship. Again, as it is a benefic planet, relationship will survive.
Aries Ascendant - If it is an Aries Ascendant, Venus rules 2nd & 7th house and sits in 9th house in Sagittarius. This is a Preacher as a Spouse. Venus in Sagittarius is like loving someone who is in love with Philosophy and Higher Learning. Start a discussion on Philosophy and Religion, and they will fall in love with you. They can be impressed, not by looks, but by knowledge. Gifting a Book is best gift for them. Love for travelling will always be there, but may like to take Pilgrimages more. A relation connected on the basis of knowledge, philosophy and higher learning.
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 9th house in Aquarius Sign. It shows spouse may be working at a far distant place in any large organizations. It shows a highly learned person as spouse who interprets religions and philosophies of world in a Scientific Manner. They are those people who can read any religious texts of centuries ago and can interpret as to what it holds in modern day life.
Virgo Ascendant - If it is Virgo Ascendant, Jupiter rules 4th & 7th house and sits in 9th house in Taurus. We can see similar results here but here spouse may be dissatisfied by his wealth and learning. They may be working in Finance related job. Jupiter expands the house and sign results, so in 9th house and Taurus, it will expand wealth and knowledge but as Jupiter is in enemy sign, person will still feel frustrated as if he hasn't got what he desired. Spouse may be highly religious. Although, both positions of Jupiter are not great but still being the most benefic planet will help the relation.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 7th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 7th house lord, Saturn in 9th house (for Cancer/Leo Ascendants respectively) shows that Spouse may be of nature where he/she imposes own religious views and beliefs to the native. Spouse will have lots of rules and regulations which may ruin the fun part of marriage. This situation will be more intense for Leo Ascendant as Saturn is debilitated there. Saturn being the ruler of 7th house means marriage must be delayed till 30s to get good results of Saturn. Early marriage may not be too prosperous. Higher Learning or Guru will come with delay in life. Till then, they will be just finding wrong persons as Gurus. They will have doubts and criticism towards their Gurus. They can ask about genuineness of even a Spiritual Guru. It is very hard for them to find a real guru in 1st part of life. But as always with Saturn, after attaining 30, they are more open towards developing a right belief system. At right time, they also get the right Guru and they find the true knowledge. Again, any other yoga or dasha can change the scenario totally.
Rahu - If Rahu is 7th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 9th house in Aries then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Aries in 9th 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 Aries in 9th house basically indicates that your spouse can be an individual who always asserts himself. Like, you can't make them adjust in relations, you need to adjust. If this position makes someone very active and action oriented then this position can equally create an individual who gets sudden anger and result in violence. Foreign Spouse is a great possibility. They will have weird and strange views on religions and belief system. Again, any other yoga or dasha can change the scenario totally.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 7th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 9th house in Capricorn then 1st of all we need to make sure of Mars' position as it is the main ruler. As Ketu isolates/separates a person/spouse from the things related to the house Ketu is sitting, here they may not be willing to work under any authority. Concept of Govt, Boss, Power and Authority is alien to them. It is better for them to work for themselves. It also separates person from his Gurus and Higher Learning, means this person will always find Gurus who are in disagreement with native. There is never a connect between the two. Native thinks that real knowledge of religion and philosophy is something else then what is taught to him by his Gurus. He always feels that his teachers are below par.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
