The Descendant Describes The
Partner Types You Attract
Whom Are You Attracted To?

The Descendant (7th house) and its ruler are of major importance if you want to know more about your significant other, the partner, your bosom friend or everyone of importance that you attract or "meet & greet."

In fact, the 7th house represents everyone outside of you, everyone that acts like a mirror and confronts yourself with your own being.

It represents what and whom you are attracted to.

If you want to know who your significant other will be, what partner type you attract, first check the 7th house and its ruler.

The positions of some planets and bodies representing love just come second.

The sign on the cusp of the 7th house (Descendant) sets the stage and represents, in a general way, the partner(s) and partner type you are attracted to.

If there is an intercepted zodiac sign in the 7th house, you will have to take this sign into account too.

Indeed, in the latter case you will have to blend both signs to find out who (s)he is (more about it in a second).

What we are looking for is not the zodiac sign as such on the Descendant (this is of secondary importance too) but the element it belongs to.

The elemental analysis is the first thing to do and this will bring you to the Sun sign of the partner you are attracted to.

Let's take a look.

  • If there is a fire sign on the cusp of the 7th house (Aries, Leo or Sagittarius), you are attracted to partners whose Sun sign is Aries, Leo or Sagittarius.

  • If there is an earth sign on the cusp of the 7th house (Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn), you are attracted to partners whose Sun sign is Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn.

  • If there is an air sign on the cusp of the 7th house (Gemini, Libra or Aquarius), you are attracted to partners whose Sun sign is Gemini, Libra or Aquarius.

  • If there is a water sign on the cusp of the 7th house (Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces), you are attracted to partners whose Sun sign is Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces.

In many instances, this rule works wonderfully well and even points to the Sun sign of your husband or wife.

However, the elemental analysis points to the one and the partner type you are ATTRACTED to, not necessarily the one you will build a lifelong relationship with.

In other words, it does not indicate the one you MUST have to build an enduring love union with.

Even when the rule applies, divorces and separations happen, depending on the ruler of the 7th house and other factors and configurations in your horoscope.

When there is an intercepted sign in the 7th house, we just mentioned to blend both zodiac signs to find the partner type you are attracted to.

We will now give an example on how to proceed to make this clear.

Let's say you have Libra on the 7th house cusp (Descendant) with Scorpio intercepted in the 7th house.

Libra is an air sign and Scorpio is a water sign.

If we apply the rule, we are as well attracted to an air sign (Gemini, Libra or Aquarius) as to a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces).

Now that's a lot!

In practice, your partner type or significant other might or will be the one whose Sun sign has the same ruler or planet that has the most affinity with both elements (because it's exalted or in the sign of its triplicity, etc...).

In this example, Venus is exalted in the water sign Pisces and rules the air sign Libra so that your significant other will have very prominent Venus traits and may be born under the Sun sign of Libra.

This delineation may sound quite difficult but if you have a table with essential dignities at hand, it's not.
