The Signification of 7th House

It will give you high Self respect, Confidence, authoritative nature, administrative ability. As Sun represents fire or energy it makes one’s personality better. You will never suffer from severe diseases. You may have anger but the anger or aggressiveness helps you motivating in life.
As 7th house is secondary house of career, it can also give career in Govt organisation. Daily earnings, business partnership etc are going to be in a very good way if it is in a good dignity. You will have aggressiveness and positive attitude specially in workplace. If Sun is strong in 7th house, it will take you to very good height in professional life. It can give you lot of benefit from Government. An exalted Sun will make you a good manager because you will have the authority to make people work around you. A good lawyer or a good judge, a good politician is able to gather people. The conjunction of Sun and Saturn in 7th house is good for Govt job. I have written detailed article about the effect of Sun-Saturn Conjunction in different houses, You can read about it here.
But Sun in 7th can definitely give you lot of ego and pride. It will not be easy for you to make compromises in life. As Sun is a very hot planet, wherever he will sit, it will burn one or more significance of that house for sure. So in 7th house even if it is exalted, some significance of 7th house will suffer. Sun being a separative planet, its placement in 7th house is not good for marital life. It will be more prominent when Sun is further afflicted by Mars or Saturn or Rahu. But if Sun is well placed in the 7th house, your married life will be outstanding, even your marriage can give you popularity or fame.
If Sun is debilitated or in enemy sign, bad result can be expected. You will not be able to get Govt job, can have problem with father, you can also face trouble with your Business Partner. These bad results of Sun in 7th house will be felt more during the Dasha and Antardasha of it. If Sun in 7th house is well aspected, it can give lot of travelling as well. If Sun is 9th lord or 3rd lord, its placement in 7th house is very good for foreign journey.
If Sun is with Mercury in 7th house, it creates a very good yoga known as Budhaditya Yoga. Which will make you very intelligent. It will give good education and also good communication ability. If this Sun-Mercury combination in 7th house is further aspected by Jupiter, it is very good for education.
If Sun is placed in 7th house with Jupiter, it will definitely give you lot of prestige and honour. Your wife will come from a prestigious family. You will be well known and recognised in Society.
But if Sun is with Rahu or Saturn in 7th house, it will spoil the 7th house completely if they are not supported by strong benefic Jupiter. You will get suffering and sorrow due to your egoistic nature. You can face trouble in your work from your higher authority. In case of business, you may face legal complications. The relationship with father will also suffer.
Effect of Sun in 7th House in Marriage

You may read my detail writing on How to predict marriage Time to know more about this. But one thing for sure, that with this placement, you can not be completely happy in relationship. Because Sun is ego and 7th house sun brings Ego in relationship. Ego is never a good factor in case of Love and Relationship.
It is possible that you want a partner from very good back ground, a person whom you can feel proud. Some way your inner sense of pride is involved while selecting Marriage partner. With Sun in 7th house Marriage partner can be admired or respected in Society. The person with Sun in 7th house most probably got married after marriage-able age. Sun is a separative planet and being a very hot planet, does not give marital happiness. Your Marriage will be ruined because of Ego clash and dominating nature of your spouse. A relationship where one is Superior or tries to dominate the other person will not work with this Placement of Sun. But if this Sun is Vargottama or exalted or with Jupiter, and also the 7th house of Navamsa is good, you will get a good and devoted wife. Your wife will come from a good family background. And your wife will help you in your career and financial prosperity. But if your Sun is debilitated in 7th house, afflicted by Malefic, it can even destroy your Married life completely.
