Ketu in the 7th House – Good or Bad

It is one of the four important houses we call as a ‘Kendra’. Seventh house is for unions, marriage, associations, contracts, home, abroad, travel, and trade etc.  It is exactly opposite the first house, and thus, represents native’s behavior towards his partner (spouse or associate). It also concerns with potency. Body parts such as inner sexual organs are represented by this house. 7th house and L-7 is considered Maraka (death) house along with 2nd house.Ketu is planet of disorder, disability, detachment, apathy, and negligence. Ketu’s main problem is lack of interest and detachment from the things or event of the house matters. Ketu has no regards for set social norms and rules by the society for any particular house feature nor is he aware of due to his casual nature.

Rahu is obsession about the features and events of the house where it sits because you did not experience plenty of those in your past life so crave for it now. Ketu is casual, ignorant, apathetic about the features and events of the house where it sits because you already had plenty of those things in the past and don’t want anymore.

Ketu’s detachment towards any kind of partnership especially disinterest in marriage will be visible. He will hold the partner responsible for not working relationship despite of partner’s valuable contribution to the alliance. He will be not sure about the future of any alliance or partnership. This is because Rahu-1 shows strong desire for personal recognition, prestige and reputation. He is always looking for the opportunities to be in the spotlight. Rahu 1 makes native very ambitious, hungry for recognition, social status and privileges. Native focus too much on personal appearance. However, it is possible that partner may serve as the promoter of Rahu 1 ambition and growth ladder for native. Partner will also play responsible role of being a social partner for the native, but emotionally disengaged. Such person should always think twice while starting a business or any venture in partnership.

At the same time, any graha with Ketu 7 or casting drishti upon Ketu will change the result of the marital life then Ketu will move according to influences upon Him, especially Saturn. Surprisingly, if these couples stay apart for longer period, their marriage can work as they will feel the need of each other. The first spouse is often from a different social class or different cultural-religious background. The failure of marriage may create success in spiritual life. Ketu simply follow his karmic duties from the birth to reach his final destination. He doesn’t care about money, fame, recognition, or importance from the society.
