Rahu in 7th house

Written By Addittya Tamhankar

Seventh is Sex. Let this be very clear. But we live in human world and so along with Sexual union comes the union of two families – to which we call ‘marriage’! SO – seventh house lordship is also of importance. Seventh sub-lord is also of importance. Seventh house placement in Chalit Kundali is also important. Seventh house aspects are also important. Seventh house in D9 Chart is also important – so you see – just by asking what will Rahu in 7th house lead to – is like asking – how the honeymoon is going to be? You cannot know, no one can help you with the answer – because there are so many factors that are going to play its role – in shaping the experience of a good or bad honeymoon!

So let us not generalize – but since you have asked – I am not going to disappoint you for the only reason that many people have many wrong ideas about Rahu in 7th – and so maybe this answer can help clear some clouds of darkness (read-ignorance!)

Rahu in 7th provides you with a very intellectual life-partner. The native is interested to get married – but for a certain reason! Shocked? Don’t be. In one of my visit to the US – I met a young lady in my office. Somehow she happened to be an ardent believer of astrology and so she approached me with her birth chart – and her question or rather inquiry was very straightforward. She said “ I want my ex-boyfriend back – for few days I have been not in touch with him – but I want to see – If I can get him back.”

I asked “Why?”

And she said “ Because I want to have kids, and he is my best option!”

This woman had Rahu in 7th. Some objective is always in play – either money, property, fame, easy accessibility to luxuries or as in this case – children!

Now why this happens? Rahu is your desire – you obsession -in 7th you are obsessed to find a perfect partner who can help you achieve your dreams, your desires, your selfish motives!

The word is perfect partner. And so Rahu in 7th often delays marriage – because Rahu is that selfish desire that wants a partner who can serve the purpose – perfectly.

Many times – you also see men and women – who have had many sexual experiences and pleasures but still they never marry – because they never found that ‘perfect partner’!

There was a man who remained unmarried his whole life, and when he was dying, ninety years old, somebody asked him, “You have remained unmarried your whole life, but you have never said what the reason was. Now you are dying, at least quench our curiosity. If there is any secret, now you can tell it, because you are dying; you will be gone. Even if the secret is known, it can’t harm you.”

The man said, “Yes, there is a secret. It is not that I am against marriage, but I was searching for a perfect woman. I searched and searched, and my whole life slipped by.”

The inquirer asked, “But upon this big earth, so many millions of people, half of them women, couldn’t you find one perfect woman?”

A tear rolled down from the eye of the dying man. He said, “Yes, I did find one.”

The inquirer was absolutely shocked. He said, “Then what happened? Why didn’t you get married?”

And the old man said, “But the woman was searching for a perfect husband.”

So you see – that is how Rahu 7 is – it simply makes you obsessed towards finding a perfect husband or a perfect wife!

Here one gets obsessed with perfection. Often the native is looking for perfection in his or her partner. And a man who is behind ‘perfection’ is already on his way to hell!

Rahu in 7th is a perfect representation of man ‘chasing for a perfect partner’!

And the result is disastrous. The native with 7th Rahu – is happy when he finds that perfect girl with perfect figure. Oh when she talks, he feels as if she is singing, when she smiles – he feels as if the whole world is smiling, when she walks, he feels as if she is no less than Miss Universe! And so he jumps on his horse and finally gets married! And then the real picture begins! Somebody asked then what was that? That was just a ‘trailer’ – and trailers are always very catchy, very attractive – else who will come to watch the ‘movie’?

So Rahu in 7th native often feels deceived. And no one is to blame but his own madness for perfection, his own ignorance, his own foolishness, his own strong desires for having a sexy wife or a sexy husband. Sex is enjoyed – but the cost of the sexual union is far more painful than those few hours that he enjoys in the bed.

But Rahu 7th is not done. He never realizes his or her own mistakes. And so the next thing is to start with is the ‘blaming game’. And this blaming game either separates the couple or they never trust each other and yet remain together to safeguard their comfortable family life. And an unhappy married life is a perfect setting for a shady extra-marital affairs. So Rahu 7 – if other aspects are negative – gets involved with that ‘other’ woman or ‘other’ man.

Rahu 7 remains an ignorant fool – who goes on blaming the whole world for his own foolishness! And that is the greatest tragedy of Rahu 7 person – in fact this ignorance towards partner – business or sexual – leads this man to many miseries than otherwise.

But Rahu 7 – never understands this. He or she goes through many break-ups – divorces – and yet they never realize that it was always them and not the other person to be blamed for their miserable marriage or partnerships or relationships.

However Rahu 7 definitely gives good sexual pleasures. Why? Because Rahu is your desire – and such a person is born with a strong desire to satisfy his immense, over-obsessive sexual desire – desires to have more and more sex, to have all the fun in the bed! And since human birth comes to let you satisfy your desires – Rahu in 7 provides you with sexual experiences – good or bad – that depends on the placement of Mars and seventh house lordship.

Rahu never stops.

But Rahu never stops. Mars or a Martian will stop when it is done. But Rahu goes on and on and on – neither his sexual needs are satisfied nor his habit of chasing for all the glittering, shinning stuff stops – he just goes on and on till one day he drops down dead. And then taken to the graveyard – just to restart his quest for more deeper sexual needs for the next life – that life – human or animal – depends on the quality of his or her karma.

If other aspects support than you also see a henpecked husband who never goes beyond the word of his wife! He becomes so much obsessed with his wife that it becomes a danger to the existence of his mother! Because then he would never listen to his mother but only his wife!

So Rahu in 7th – brings many sexual desires – person is obsessed with sex – I have examined charts of many young boys and girls – who have become sexually active – too early compared to their counterparts.

Last week – a man with Rahu 7 asked a good question – he asked “How can I fulfill my desires – sexual, material….”

And the answer is found in this beautiful picture quote:

Rahu 7 – person should definitely meditate – for this is the only way towards experiencing a much rewarding life. Life that is no more obsessive of a certain desire but free from all desires.

The key to overcoming the strong sexual desires of this placement is in becoming more and more aware, conscious of your ‘self’ – and the way towards consciousness, towards awareness, towards self-realization – is through ‘meditation’!

Planet placements is one thing and your own ‘Will-power’ is the other dimension of your life. With strong will-power – you certainly can raise the level of your consciousness – your awareness – and when awareness comes, you are no more the same, everything around you is the same, but you are no more the same – you have ‘arrived’ – you have found your ‘peace’!

Meditate, pray, eat, sleep – let your life be more like a poem, like a song – let joy be the only answer to all your questions.

The greater the consciousness the greater is the joy of your life!
