Chapter 29 –House of Marriage

     The seventh house from the ascendant is called house of spouse, marriage, friendship, partnership, trade, and sexual relationship. These are the main things we can know from this house.
 
     If the lord of the seventh house is exalted or in own house or in friendly house then the above mentioned things would be favorable to the native. If debilitated or in enemy house then would get unfavorable results.
 
     In north Indian charts, the house next to the sixth house in anti-clockwise direction is seventh house. From the natural order of zodiac sign marked in the ascendant, we can derive which zodiac sign is seventh house. For example if the ascendant is marked with 4 then the seventh house would be Capricorn.
