When you set up a birth chart you will notice that the chart is divided into 12 sections. These sections are called houses. Each house corresponds to a sign and qualities associated with that sign.
Below is a diagram outlining which sign corresponds with which house. You can go to chart and erect your own chart to print out and work from.
So How do the houses work in practice?
The 7th house is ruled by Libra and thus the planets Venus and Saturn. See star sign keywords for an overview of each sign.
Someone might well be a Sun sign Capricorn with a down to earth responsible nature, but if their Sun sits in the 7th house then it is influenced by all that that house represents.
Therefore, as the Sun governs their ego identity, their life priorities will be personal relationships, business associations and all one-to-one friendships.
Put these two elements together and you end up with someone who relies on secure, long term relationships that are very practical in nature.
Thus the house which each planet resides in is very important to the overall tone of a chart.
For example if we find Venus in the 7th house, as Venus is the house ruler through its association with Libra, we find someone who is dedicated to beauty and refinement in all dealings with others.
