What are the effects of Ketu in the 7th house?

This is NOT a good combination for married life and dealing with others.

Ketu in the 7th means Rahu in the first which is one of the most damaging combinations for a marriage. The person tends to be self-obsessed, uncompromising and is almost blind to his own faults making it difficult for the partner to live with him.

I often joke to my clients with this combination stating a corny old movie dialogue by Villian Amrish Puri who played the Dictator Dong in a movie. The dialogue said“UPAR WALA WRONG HO SAKTA HAI PAR DONG KABHI WRONG NAHI HOTA”(Meaning: Even the god in heaven can be wrong but Dong can never be wrong)

This combination is most common in life long bachelors. Those who are stuck with a partner with this combination are never satisfied and the person is too self obsessed to value them enough.

  1. Sir, why do planetary positions change when birth chart is written based on vakkiya panchangam and thirukanitha panchangam. Which one to be considered? For me ragu in ascendant and ketu in 7th position in navamsa chart according to thirukanitha panchangam. But, rahu ketu in 2,8 position acc. to vaakiya panchangam. Kindly resolve my query. Thank you.

  2. this is true sir I do have this combination ,rahu in cancer ascendant and ketu in capricorn with venus,but I am married ,but true not satisfied with anything ,have a feeling of more and more

    1. I’m a Taurus ascendant with Rahu and Moon in 1st house.In 7 th house Ketu is conjunction with Jupiter.I am facing difficulty in marriage.

  3. I have Rahu in 1st House and Ketu in 7th, Happily married for last 11 years with 2 kids and still going great. ANy exception to this rule

    1. there are exceptions to every rule. Then over all chart can have a heavy Jupiter/venus influence. In most cases, the mate surrenders…and Rahu in 1st is happy. 😀

  4. Does the effect change if Kethu is along with venus in 7th house in a female chart? I have the same combination and I am an aquarious ascendant. I read somewhere that it is fine when in a female chart.
