North Node in 7th House

The traditional interpretation of north node in 7th house is good luck in marriage and partnership.  It also means an important role for nieces, nephews, and children (especially the second child).  Conversely, it can also signify a troubled early life.

Marriage and partnership may not have been comfortable for you at first.  Lifetimes of individual achievement and independence make it more natural for you to go it alone and value your unique identity.   You may be divorced or separated.  Perhaps you have never married, because of your tendency to remain apart.  However, as reluctant as you may be or have been to commit to another, marriage and partnership are part of your spiritual journey.  You are here in this lifetime to learn to give with the whole heart, asking nothing of others in return.   If you have not been successful in your relationships, most likely you were falling back on the old habit of trying to just get by.  You may have most likely not been doing the minimum to keep a partner around.   Put the needs of others first and you will be amazed at how the universe supports you.

You had many incarnations as a loner.  You came into this world with a pioneer spirit.  This may be seen by others as a sense of embattlement.  Some will perceive you as disloyal, since you are so reluctant to invest in your relationships.  However, as you grow in your spiritual development, you will find within yourself an amazing ability to give self-confidence to others.   Martin Schulman attributes to native with this north node in 7th house nodal placement an ability to “give others the will where there was none” and to make them aware of their own self-worth.

You may wonder how to begin your journey of putting others first.  It starts with developing the habit of detaching from yourself and recognizing the egoistic ways of your past (either previous lifetimes or childhood).  You will soon learn the rewards of focusing your energy on someone other than yourself.  As you take the emphasis off you and put it on the other, the habits of kindness and understanding will develop naturally.  These behaviors will help you formulate appropriate goals for your relationships.  Donna van Toen sees as the major issue for natives with the North Node in 7th House:  “This person is torn between involvement at any cost and preservation of his or her highly comfortable image of self as a good or beautiful person.”

The core issue for you is the right balance between self and others.  As you reach for your North Node, strive to be sure that every arrangement is a win-win.  Both sides should benefit from any bargain.  Check your tendency to assert yourself at all times.  Seek the balance proclaimed by your nodal brother Norman Vincent Peal: win friends and influence people.  Other famous people who share the north node in 7th house placement are Malcolm X, Barack Obama, the current Dalai Lama, Jackie Kennedy, Elizabeth II, and Woodrow Wilson.  All of these luminaries are known for their autonomy, but also a great deal of charm.

Permanent relationships require tact, diplomacy, strategy, and above all fair dealing.  Obligations, limitations, and even boredom are part and parcel of long-term commitments to others.  However, as you compromise and cooperate with partners you will find that your investment is more than returned.   Most partners look for reciprocity.  You will find much more than that with your north node in 7th house.

The north node in 7th house is also known as Dragon’s Head in the Seventh House and Dragon’s Tail in the First House.

  1. Thank You. Great Article!

    God Bless You

  2. I’m curious the implications of a Aries North Node in the 7th house would be. Seems like it’s a bit of a contradiction. Would the general North Node reading apply?

  3. I know many people above 35 years old with North Node in 7th H including me (although I am still young).. nine of them had any rrlationship.. Skme are like 50 years old and never had been in a relationship let alone marriage.. I feel like the South Node always wins.. I understand the reason myself.. I do nit know why I should be in a relationship.. I do not need another person as a burden.. I am a woman why have someone else to cook for to wash his clothes why do everything twice? I am the loser here.. I mean who wants to just give and take nothing in return? No one.. As a wokan I feel very unlucky in comparison to men.. If I was a man I wouldn’t mind being in a relationship nor having children because everything would be taken care of by the woman I would be with.. As a man even with kids if you are bored you just end it up and you are free again.. the woman though will remain alone and old doing everything by herself.. What a ruined life.. Poor women..

    • You have a very sound (intellectual, dare I say) comprehension of pacts that humans make with each other on a daily basis. As You’ve probably worked everything out for Your own universe, You are ready to ally with another one, also sound and balanced. There are fusions that release otherworldly energies, open up new realities, far beyond domestic chords.

    • Is that really how you feel? Well, I am a male with the northnode in the 7th house.

      I guess it’s true about the shitty relationships in the beginning. But with that said, do you really think you have it tough just because you’re a woman? I really feel sorry for you, mostly for how you feel. How it’s so bad to give.

      As said, I’m male and apparently have it “easy” as you say. I am married, but my wife doesn’t live with me yet. Working hard on getting her with me, since she lives in another country. But no, I don’t need her with me to cook and wash and that sort of thing. Though I am sure she will when we live together, and I know she’ll be happy and proud to do so.

      As for me, I will be her proud husband and work and bring in the money into the household. To take care of my wife and provide for us so we have food to eat, a roof over our heads and clothes to wear.

      That said, it’s not just a matter of one giving and the other taking so much. As it is however you want to divide the roles you both have in a household.

      From a male perspective following your logic. I would say, well if I wasn’t married. Sure I’d have to cook and clean and do my own laundry. But then you don’t have anyone else to take care of who would “take” your money. So I guess your logic applies to both sides, regardless of gender.

      I just feel sorry for you feeling the way you did. But everyone is free to choose their own path, and choose their own way to live.

  4. Very accurate to me I have Libra in the 7 house and it is a double giving win win situation
    — Namaste — thank you so much

    What??? I am so confused of my north node that I loose interest in achieving it cause I don’t even know how or where to start anymore. I have Aries in 7th house so it really contradicts everything. Reading north node Aries talks about being comfort alone and avoid giving too much, while 7the house says the contrary. Any suggestions?

    • Same here, NN in Aries in 7th house. I’m scared of intimate relationships, doing everything by myself. I sit quietly in my home dreaming about having a girl and living together but when there’s a chance and someone wants to know me closer I run away or act like I’m not interesed. I’m stuck but besides this planetary position I also have sun, mars, venus and mercury in 12th house in Leo. Sometimes life sucks and you can do nothing about it…

    Dear, Why o Why did the man I love so dearly is afraid to reach for me. My North node is in the sign of Libra and situated in my seventh house.
    Virgo is the sign of my seventh house where Venus and Neptunes are situated. My Sun is in Scorpio, my asc. Is PISCES.
    IT hurts, iT is painfull, But I do understanding This Aries man. He has been married several time (4 times). Something inside of me tells me that he is my soul mate.
    I have to move forward, But iT hurts.

  7. This interpretation is very accurate! Great insight and very soulful!!!
