Libra and its ruling planet, Venus, are associated with the seventh house in astrology. In the journey across the zodiac, from inception to self-discovery, the seventh house is where we start to focus on partnerships and integrate relationships into our lives. This house teaches us how to negotiate with others, and that we can do more in a team than we can alone. It helps us see that our point of view is not the only one, and that our capacity for knowledge expands exponentially when we work together. It determines what we are willing to give, and what we require in order to feel comfortable.
It’s important to note that through the seventh house, we don’t just see how people build us up, but also how they can potentially tear us down. Our goal at the end of the day is to make them as fair and mutually beneficial as possible. Through the seventh house, we eventually learn the Libran skill of balance in partnership.
