7th House (Jaya Bhava)

7th House (Jaya Bhava)“Without God, human love is never perfect.”
—Paramhansa Yogananda

Jaya means victory, it also means wife. Opposite the first house, representing the self, is the seventh house which represents others. This is the house of partnership. It is a house of passion, desires and attachments. It rules over married life, as well as divorce.

The seventh house governs contacts and agreements. Therefore this is also a house of business and business partners. A career seen in the seventh house can involve marriage counseling or public relations. Since it represents "the other" it also rules over foreigners and foreign travel.
