Recently I replied to a question, “Will Rahu in my 7th house cause me a bad marriage or no marriage?”
It depends very much upon the strongest aspect to Rahu, and the condition of the dispositor of Rahu. Rahu in the 7th house in and of itself merely indicates that the native must learn how to relate cooperatively with other individuals.
Sri Krsna for example has Rahu in the 7th aspected by Guru from the 11th with Mars (7th lord) exalted in the 9th house. Sri Krsna has 16,108 wonderful marriages. Sri Krsna is the husband of every soul.
Sastra says, “Eko bahu syat” – the One felt that it should be many. This is Rahu in the 7th house of Krsna’s chart. Ketu is in the 1st. Ketu in the first means that “previously” Krsna was atma-rama – self-absorbed, only ONE. But the purpose of existence manifesting eternally from Krsna is Rahu in the 7th house – that the one wants to develop relationships with other individual beings. Why? “Raso vai sah” Because he is full of ecstatic joy (Rasa) and wishes to expand that joy by sharing it with other individual beings.
This is the nature of Rahu in the 7th in the context of the birth chart of the Supreme Pesonality of Godhead, Svayam Bhagavan Sri Krsna.
