A challenging mirror
Every kind of deep relationship, sooner or later, faces challenges and problems. No long term partnership will ever get away with that. It’s part of the process of construction of associations, and part of the development process of the self. Because of that, is often to listen that the things that bring you more happiness, are the ones that will also make you suffer the most.
That’s the kind of issues house 7 also approaches. It will make it clearer the type of challenges you have to face. Some of these aren’t about the end of a relationship, just about a moment, but you can also find information about divorce and other legal processes, as well as unclear and unsolved business.

House 7 also covers your enemies, the ones that disagree with your essence, with your choices, ideas, words… those are the people that you come across in your life to highlight your own defects, especially the ones you aren’t conscious about.
The other will always be a source of comfort, but also of conflict. Especially because of that, this house is about the opportunity of self-development. The opportunity of the ego to deal with the world and surrender to the fact that we are nothing if we are alone, that cooperation and community are essential for the human being.
