Many of us have wondered if stars could actually reveal our destiny or natal charts are just another fortuneteller’s trick.
Well, astrology is a very ancient science, practiced all around the world, from royal courts and palaces, over battlefields, to common folk.
Today, modernized astrology is very popular. Astrology is based upon the old hermetic postulate of ‘as above, so below’. What happens on a big plan, reflects in our unique lives.
Astrological charts are like identification cards. Each is as unique as a fingerprint, unfolding uniquely, over the course of one’s life.
It does not foretell all things to come, but gives one a precious insight into potentials. The rest depends on us. These charts are very complex and astrological houses are one of the constitutive element.
Houses represent fields of life. Planets found inside houses affect one’s experience related to a segment of life.
Seventh House in Astrology
The Seventh House is the house of partnerships and relations with other people, which could easily be understood if we remember that the seventh field was the opposite from the First House (being the house of Ego and the self).
The Seventh House is primarily linked to romantic relationships and all the terms, concepts and roles that have something to do with it.
Lovers, partners, spouses, romantic affairs, romantic relationships, breakups, marriage, divorce and else all have to do with this field.
This astrological house could be related to other types of connections and partnership, as well. For example, it could indicate a professional partnership, collaboration or the lack of it, deals, contracts, arrangements and all else could be seen in this field.
Public relations, public influence and activities are also matters of the Seventh House. This field is also about law and all the questions and processes that have something to do with it.
It is interesting to note that the Seventh House, following the Sixth, also has to do with opponents and rivalry, on public enemies and open enmity, which requires caution and attention.
However, we could say that this house is less ominous than the sixth field, though it always depends on planetary aspects. The Seventh House is very important in astrological readings.
It could tell much about the native’s love life and the future regarding romantic relationships. Planets and planetary aspects inside this house could tell if a relationship will end or pass to another level.
It could tell about the potential of a relationship to turn into a marriage, for example. It could also indicate a divorce, a breakup and such things. As we have mentioned, this is also the field of other connections.
In that sense, it is a good indicator of professional connections and it could help you realize if one such connection was promising or not.
This house does not literally tell what is going to happen, of course, but it gives you a better insight into the nature of those connections and relationships you find yourself into. It also tells about one’s attitude towards all these relationships.
The Seventh House is an angular house, analog with the diplomatic Libra, which tells much about its nature, as this was the house of relations. It is an Air element House and key words of Air houses are the social and the intellectual.
Sharing experiences and concepts is a ‘task’ of these houses. They tell about one’s experiences regarding this task, so to say. Planets found inside these houses tell about the native’s social life and his or hers verbal expressiveness.
This house is especially important when it comes to choosing partners; primarily, romantic ones, but also other people we connect with. It describes the type of relationships that suit us or that we search for.
It is interesting to notice that sometimes people who have an emphasized Seventh House seem to attract others without them being actually aware of it or even consciously willing to engage with them. The Seventh House is a magnetic field, in a way.
Jupiter in Mythology
Jupiter was a very ancient Italic god associated with time, sky and lightning and also the supreme god of Roman pantheon. The cult was of great political significance in Rome.
Throughout the whole Italy and in Rome, Jupiter was first worshipped on hilltops. Old shrines did not have a statue of the god, but a stone that was associated with Jupiter and considered a sacred object.
The oldest Roman shrines dedicated to Jupiter stood on Capitoline Hill, Esquiline Hill, Monte Cavo and Monti Cimini.
On these hills and mountains, Jupiter was worshipped under names of Iuppiter Feretrius, Iuppiter Fagutalis, Iuppiter Latiaris and Iuppiter Ciminius, respectively. Jupiter was also known as Fulgur, the thunder and lightning god. Jupiter was the master of weather and the rainmaker.
Common folk praised Jupiter, believing he would protect their lands and crops and grant than a fertile year. It was very common in Rome that gods were attributed functions related to agriculture, besides other functions.
The tradition says that Romulus had built a shrine on the Capitoline Hill, dedicated to Jupiter Feretrius; the place of worship had a sacred stone and not a statue, at first.
Emperor Augustus renewed this shrine. In any case, the abundance of names and shrines prove how widely and strongly Jupiter was worshipped.
In Greek mythology, his counterpart was the almighty Zeus. Jupiter was identified with justice, laws and order, righteousness and wisdom. He ruled both gods and men and gave laws to both.
Jupiter himself came to power after he brought down his cruel father Saturn, the myth says, which is also interesting from the astrological point of view and the perception of planets Saturn and Jupiter.
Upon overthrowing him, he became the ruler of the sky and the earth. His brothers Neptune and Pluto ruled the waters and the underworld.
We do not know Jupiter as a sacred stone, but an older, strong, handsome and fit bearded man. Jupiter and Zeus’ statues are always impressive.
Let us remind you that one of the seven wonders of the old world was a monolithic temple of Zeus in Olympia.
The master of gods, the fair judge and the god of prosperity, progress, wealth and victory, Jupiter god helps us understand the planet Jupiter in astrology.
