Many of the astrological houses deal with some form of relating, but a seventh-house progression is specifically geared to help us understand the balance between our partner and ourselves. In the seventh house, we learn how to relate to another person without forgetting who we are, and how to get along with that person through healthy compromises. During this time, you need to ask yourself if you are getting what you need from your primary partner or partners, and if not, why? You have reached a point in your life when you are ready to get serious about your relationship needs, and that includes more than just what you are or aren’t getting from a partner. You are also ready to become aware of and take responsibility for the choices you make when getting involved with a partner, as well as what you do or don’t do to get your needs met.
Our partners are truly mirrors for us, not because they act like us or should become more like us, but because they give us direct and indirect feedback by their behaviors about what we’re doing or not doing in relating to them. During this progression, you are invited to get honest with your partners, and especially yourself, to evaluate what you really want and need in relationship, and what you need to do to get it. Remember that the seventh house is a time to consider relationships of any kind where there is significant emotional investment and a need to see eye-to-eye, or at least heart-to-heart.
The sign your progressed Moon is in while in the seventh house can also help you realize what is out of balance between you and a partner. For instance, Leo might point to a feeling of a lack of attention or appreciation from a partner, whereas Scorpio will need more intensity and honesty from a partner. This may or may not mean that your partner isn’t giving you these things, but that your awareness of a lack can put your attention on what you need to get from them.
