An ex-boyfriend of mine called me this week (Happy Mercury Retrograde) from many, many years ago; he is one of those exes I will always see when he calls; meet for drinks & remember when’s. Ya know Cancers we are melancholy and nostalgic in nature. He is a lot of things, he introduced me to Versace (his Jupiter falls on my Venus) and on the list of all those things he is; he has spent some time in a penitentiary. Some extended time many many years ago. When he called me it gave me a flash back memory on something I once read about the ruler of the 12th house being placed in the 7th house. “Marrying an ex con was in the article”, something I quite honestly don’t have an issue with, true love comes in all forms.

I wrote a little bit about the ruler of the houses in the houses and wanted to encourage you not to overlook the importance of them.
This is how it works; naturally in astrology the 12th house rules dreams, compassion, self undoing, merging, the soul, transcendental experiences, sorrow, things we turn a blind eye to, things we simply don’t see, perhaps things we don’t want to see, the skeletons in our closet, escapism, and yes jails & psychiatric facilities. That is the 12th house to everyone!
Now on my individual 12th house cusp I have Capricorn, the ruler of Capricorn is Saturn; Saturn is conjunct my 7th house cusp of partnership both marriage & professional partnership. This means I bring my 12th house energies to my 7th house of marriage and people I form relationships with.
I own it; I laugh at it in the past i have told my mother I wish I could meet a man out of rehab (12th house rules rehabilitation centers) I wouldn’t mind someone that has lived ya know. I don’t mind a little dirt, a little edge. I have in the past used my partnerships to escape my life. My plutonic love and I (the man whom this blog is dedicated to) spent time in this bubble. We were all those 12th house things music, a transcendental connection, baths (12th house is water) alcohol of coarse and when my bubble burst I realized that love cannot exist in a bubble, that you can use someone to escape your reality for only so long reality always and I do mean always waiting on the other side. I can see all the ways I betray myself in partnerships; I see myself undoing; I learned that lesson, I am meek in partnerships. I’m stronger alone, I can become needy and helpless; all 12th house attributes. In my next relationship I will try to not get lost. I also read that with the 7th house ruling business as well you take your sorrow over broken relationships to launch new businesses & wa-lah here is my blog.
I will forever bring Neptunian traits to my relationships; it has to be a soul connection, music, merging, dancing & sharing dreams are essential! And he can be fresh out of rehab, perhaps spent his youth in correctional institute or maybe he will just work in a hospital but I know one things for sure the connection must be outer worldly, the merging of souls, a little love, sex and magic is a must.
What are you bringing to your 7th house?
