Rahu in 7th House | Find Out What it Means in Marriage and BusinessReading Time: 4 minutes
Rahu is one of the most feared planets in astrology. Its placement in all the houses in a birth chart matters a lot. But, it’s mostly a cause of concern if Rahu is sitting in the 7th house and is afflicted or weak. The 7th house in astrology is the house of marriage. So, Rahu in this house affects every aspect of marriage – happiness, physical and mental compatibility, peace, and progeny. In fact, Rahu in the 7th house decides spouse appearance too.
In this guide, we will walk you through the effects of Rahu’s presence in the house of marriage and the effective remedies to reduce the malice of Rahu if it’s weak or afflicted.
3 Possible Outcomes of Weak/Afflicted Rahu in the 7th House
The 7th house is also the house of business other than the house of marriage. To put it simply, the 7th House is the house of partnerships.
If a weak Rahu is present in the 7th house, the native faces a lot of problems in married life. Rahu, in fact, also causes a delay in marriage. The effects are even more serious if other malicious planets like Ketu and Shani (Saturn) have evil eyes on the 7th house. Some combinations that usually affect the life of the native are as follows.
- If a person who has Rahu in his/her Kundli gets married before the age of 21, there is a great deal of chance that the marriage will result in a divorce.
- Women with Rahu in the 7th house can be somewhat materialistic. It leads to unnecessary expenditure and that, many times, results in serious fights between the couple.
- Badly placed Rahu in the 7th house creates a diversion. The native might want to cheat on his/her spouse or just separate without putting in any effort to save the marriage.
- Rahu in the 7th house also signifies cultural and religious differences between couples because there are high chances that your spouse would come from a foreign land or belong to a different community. So, there’s going to be a lot of adjustment problems between the couple.
- In worst cases where Rahu is severely weak and accompanied by dangerous planets, it can also lead to the early and sudden death of the spouse.
Very Few Loyal Friends
Rahu in the 7th house in a birth chart makes the native very dominant and egoistic. It’s very hard to argue with these people and even harder to make them realize their fault. This is also one reason that such marriages fail. If you’re going through a similar patch due to Rahu’s affliction, you must keep the following things in mind.
- Think before you speak. There’s a high probability that you might end up hurting your own family members, let alone friends.
- Most people around you during this time will not be genuine. They might try to exploit you for money. So, be mindful of the people in your life, especially new people.
As we already mentioned, afflicted Rahu in a Kundli is bad for all kinds of partnerships, business partnership and matrimony, both. This is why the natives should avoid venturing into business in a partnership. Also, it is advised to not venture into the electronics business. It brings heavy losses and debts, and can also make the native bankrupt.
Benefits of a Well-Placed Rahu in the 7th House
