About the 7th House
The place where the Sun sets in the West is the Seventh House. It’s opposite the first, so it contains what’s NOT you – or in other words “The Other.”
Especially the important others in your life – your spouse, partners (business or romantic) of course.
But also the other side of a debate, the other team. Even your adversaries or competitors.
