Planets in the Houses
* Introduction *
Review the basic influence of each House before you study this lesson, just as you did in Lesson XI. Remember that the influence of each planet in each house can be enhanced or negated according to the aspects which that planet forms with the other planets. Proceed cautiously here, and do not attempt the new material unless you are sure of what you have already studied.
It may seem that the material if piling up on you, but please do not worry about this. Our course is very carefully designed to expose you to as much knowledge of astrology as possible, without confusing you. A knowledge of the influence of the planets in the houses is essential for a complete delineation. Lesson XII will conclude the study of this influence. The following two lessons will concentrate on the influence of each Sign as it occupies each House cusp. These chapters are extremely important, as they explain the effect of the three centres in astrology. The Signs, houses and planets are at the crux of astrology and their influence must be very carefully studied.
Sun in the Seventh House
When the Sun is located in the Seventh House it is an excellent position for the emotional development of the native and it invariably suggests benefit through marriage. The native, however, must become aware of any social or ethnic differences which may interfere with his involvement with others. Sometimes this position discloses that the native's partner (Whenever there is reference to the native's "partner" this refers to either his marital or business partner.) will be of a higher social position, in which case the success of the relationship will depend strictly on the aspects of the Sun. The partners or friends of the native tend to be extremely proud people deeply concerned about social status. The Sun here, however, affords the native the potential to rise to a higher social position than the one into which he or she is born. The native must learn to be patient and accept his partner as she or he is and not how he would like them to be.
Moon in the Seventh House
The Moon occupying the Seventh House invariably designates that the domestic side of the native's life will be peaceful. It suggests a partner who is extremely talented for domestic arrangements and well able to assist in the general handling of family life. However, if the Moon is badly aspected, the reverse effect will occur and cause the native constant turmoil in his domestic life.
This position of the Moon signifies successful partnerships and cooperation in matters concerning business and finance. Again, we must consider the aspect, to determine the actual influence involved.
Mercury in the Seventh House
Mercury located in the Seventh House implies that the mental capabilities of the partner will be intensified. It is a favorable position for harmonious relationships with the in-laws or relatives of business partner. There is an indication that the native's marriage partner will be involved in substantial short distance business travel.
This position of Mercury provides the native with a cheerful disposition. It indicates an inclination towards literary pursuits. The native has an inherent talent to utilize the art of suggestion and thereby persuade people to do things which they normally would never consider.
Venus in the Seventh House
This is an excellent position of Venus as far as marriage is concerned. It intensifies the power of love-making and indicates that the native will maintain his sex drives for the duration of his marriage. The native of this position of Venus is well equipped to cooperate for the interest of others.
Social and public success is indicated. The native is able to adapt socially and politically to the norms of the day. It is an excellent influence for business partnerships and it signifies success in financial endeavors.
Venus posited here means that the native will realize considerable gain through his associations with women.
Mars in the Seventh House
Mars posited in the Seventh House signifies a questionable influence on the native. The native must learn to adapt to the strength of his partner's character without letting himself be used by it. The partner will have a bad disposition and a quick temper. Some interference by the relatives of the partner is also indicated, which would complicate things.
Mars in the Seventh House more than likely attracts the native into contact with public and social affairs. The basic drive of the native will cause him many problems here. Thus, the native will have to use discretion in all that is said and done.
Jupiter in the Seventh House
This is an excellent position for Jupiter and it provides many benefits through the marriage relationship. Sometimes Jupiter in the Seventh House indicates a marriage to a person of a different race. Generally, it precipitates gains through the actions of the business or marriage partner. In connection with public and social affairs, it signifies that the native will hold a position of authority. The partner, even if he is really not interested, will show just concern and interest for the position the native assumes here.
Saturn in the Seventh House
When Saturn is posited in the Seventh House there is a strong indication that the native may marry someone who is considerably older. It also signifies some delay in the consummation of marriage. The marriage partner will be extremely frugal, to the point where he or she is over-cautious concerning financial matters and if this is carried to an extreme unhappiness will result.
In certain instances the health of the partner causes considerable anxiety and the partner soon becomes a burden. The nature of this problem, as always, will depend upon sign position and aspects.
Uranus in the Seventh House
When Uranus is posited in the Seventh House it provides a romantic nature for the native. Sometimes, because of the strong inclination to romance, the native marries either very early or very suddenly in life. He must be careful here to employ a certain amount of discrimination otherwise he may make the wrong choice. He generally succombs to infatuations and will often follow temporary fascinations rather than true love. He must learn to be cautious with his emotions. He has a tendency to drop one association for another without carefully weighing the outcome.
Neptune in the Seventh House
The native of this position of the planet Neptune has a tremendous desire for the ideal marriage. Unfortunately, he seldom finds this ideal state. Neptune posited here invariably implies conditions of disillusion, deception and trickery. Marriage often is to a partner prone to drunkeness, sexual perversion and other undesirable habits. Therefore, care in choice of a marriage partner should be paramount.
If Neptune is well aspected and there is concrete understanding between the two people concerning their problems, ultimate happiness is achieved.
Pluto in the Seventh House
When Pluto occupies the Seventh House, there are negative indications as far as marriage goes. Peculiar conditions will undoubtedly surround the marital state of the native. There is a likelihood that the partner may walk out when problems arise. Yet, when the problems are small, the partner is capable of inducing happiness into the marriage.
There is an indication of more than one marriage and there is a chance the native may never find happiness in marriage.
Sun in the Eighth House
The Sun in the Eighth House generally indicates a quick death. Death from heart failure is a condition that should be guarded against.
The influence of the Sun in this position quickens the actual conditions of death and thus it helps to prevent any undue suffering. It indicates possible benefit through legacy or inheritance. It also assists in the partner's handling of financial affairs.
Moon in the Eighth House
The Moon in the Eighth House affects the functional side of the native's life indicating that functional irregularities will most likely be the cause of death. However, there is a strong signification that the death will be reasonably peaceful. When the Moon resides in the Eighth House, the native can expect to gain financially through legacy, inheritance or even through unexpected gifts. There is also an indication that the native will enjoy a certain amount of financial gain through the dealings of the marriage or business partner.
In some instances, death, when the Moon is posited the Eighth House, can be caused by unwise risk, but normally, if such risks are avoided, death will be as a result of natural causes.
Mercury in the Eighth House
This position of Mercury indicates that the nervous system and or the respiratory system will be affected at the time of death. There is an indication that sometimes the death will be associated with or caused by travel. Invariably, this position of Mercury will bring the native into contact with the conditions associated with the death of other people. The native may often hold a position where he is associated with funeral homes, wills, cemetaries, etc. Depending on aspects, this closeness to death will affect the mental outlook. When Mercury is posited in the Eighth House the native can help to alleviate any mental pressure through the practice of hypnotism, as he has a latent talent for this subject.
Venus in the Eighth House
When Venus is posited in the Eighth Home, it indicates that the native will die a very peaceful death, closely related to natural causes. Sometimes the actual cause of death will be related to the throat or the kidneys. Venus here increases the prospects of financial gain through legacy, inheritance and it indicates that the partner's handling of money matters will be efficient. As far as the partner is concerned, he is very honest and willing to share benefits. This will help to create a peaceful financial relationship.
There is some indication that the native will pass away while in his sleep.
Mars in the Eighth House
When Mars is in the Eighth House the liability to a violent and sudden death increases. Death can also occur through a very bad wound or as a result of an operation. Sometimes there is a bad fever which affects the head, the excretory or generative organs. As far as marriage and business partners are concerned, endless problems are indicated. The native will find that his partner may be overly extravagant and this may cause some severe financial losses.
There are prospects of gain indicated through legacy or inheritance. There will be substantial dispute with the marriage or business partner concerning the handling of the money.
Jupiter in the Eighth House
Jupiter is in a favorable position here and it indicates a release, through death, from material or physical suffering. Death will usually come from natural causes unless there are other indications somewhere in the nativity chart.
As far as legacy and inheritance goes, it is a good position. It can even bring more financial gain than was originally anticipated. The partner has a natural talent for dealing with money matters and this eliminates the financial worries that may arise. There is also an intense indication of financial gain through the demise of friends and members of the family circle.
Saturn in the Eighth House
When Saturn occupies the Eighth House it is not in a good position concerning the health of the native. Saturn here will undoubtedly prolong the conditions of illness previous to death, thereby increasing the suffering. It indicates chronic ailments and yet the native will have an undying grip on life. With some natives of this position senility will occur at a relatively early age.
As far as legacy prospects and inheritance are concerned, it is not a helpful influence at all. Sometimes some form of inheritance can occur, but it undoubtedly will be combined with obligations and responsibilities that can almost nullify the benefit being derived. Worry and fear can sometimes occur through the viciousness of the marriage or business partner. Although the partner possesses the capacity to efficiently handle financial affairs, he tends not to share any of the benefit derived.
Uranus in the Eighth House
Uranus in the Eighth House indicates a strong liability to a sudden and violent death. This will sometimes be the result of a sudden shock, a stroke or a sudden heart failure. As far as financial gain through legacies or inheritance, the position of Uranus here is unpredictable. It denotes the unexpected. Sometimes money or some type of gain will suddenly come from unexpected sources. Uranus often causes unforseen events to occur which are financially beneficial for the native. This will sometimes come through the premature death of the next of kin.
Neptune in the Eighth House
This position of Neptune signifies death of an unusual nature. It indicates that the native may meet death by drowning, drugs, poisoning, coma, etc. The native may not die violently, but he will die suddenly.
In matters concerning legacies and inheritance, Neptune's influence is one of uncertainty. It can bring disappointments or a loss of benefit through some form of trickery or deception. The action of the marriage or business partner in connection with money matters is not always straightforward and from a business standpoint partnership should be avoided.
Pluto in the Eighth House
Pluto in the Eighth House is associated with deaths in which there is a previous disappearance, isolation or confinement. The native will often drop out of ordinary life or contact with other people previous to his death actually occuring. There is some indication that the native may be involved in a natural disaster of some sort. It is not a very helpful position for prospects of gain through legacy or inheritance. The marriage or business partner will more than likely complicate the financial position of the native's life. Once again, it would be wise for the native to avoid business partnerships or, at least use discretion in the choice of a partner.

This will many times lead to sorrow and therefore, the native should carefully plan ahead so as to avoid this.

We have now finished with influence of Planets and houses. Remember the factual statements here concerning the nature of these influences are the results of thousands upon thousands of recorded observations down through the centuries. These observations were corrected time and time again so that the accuracy of the influences is excellent. Variations of these indications are the result of assorted aspects of other planets and conditions of the universe related to the native's nativity chart and his progressed charts.
We are now going into the influences of the signs in the houses and the effect produced. In a relatively short time you will be doing chart erections and basic delineations. When waiting for lessons periodic review will never hurt you. The more of the course material that you can acquire as "finger tip" knowledge the easier your works as an astrologer will be.
