Eris in 7th House
The 12 Houses of astrology are symbolic of the all the departments that make up human life. The planets and zodiac signs will manifest themselves most strongly in the sphere of life represented by the House in which they fall on your chart. Houses are not "energies" like the elements or planets, nor do they color the expression of energies like the zodiac signs do. The houses are WHERE these energies are most likely to manifest. The houses are the fields of experience, not the experience themselves.
Eris in 7th House
Eris defines that aspect of ourselves that is at odds with the cultural norm. It’s the part that stands against what everyone does for the sake of living their truth.
People with Eris in the seventh house of one on one relationships are here to transform their role within relationships as a means of transforming the unhealthy relationship dynamics that keep playing out with others. There is a need to establish a solid emotional foundation within, in order to create healthy boundaries and sharing within relationships.
It is important for Eris in the seventh house to examine their experiences with regards to how they relate to others. This may include defense mechanisms, projections, manipulations and communication patterns. Early childhood relationships with parents would set up one’s psychological foundation that affect future relationship dynamics.
Oftentimes with this placement, the unconditional needs for love as a child were not met, and there is an unconscious seeking of a parental figure in one’s partnerships which ends up causing strife and discord due to unresolved “mommy” or “daddy” issues
When Eris resides in your seventh house, one is called to transform any limitations within relationships and partnerships related to unconscious imbalance of power as well as ongoing drama and chaos that keeps perpetuating.
This happens as a result of chaos within not worked through and then projected onto the other as “the difficult one”. The seventh house Eris person creates strife and discord as a result of a wounded inner child and an inability to take responsibility. This may often be as a result of not having your needs as a child, met unconditionally.
While there may be a feeling of being provoked or challenged in relationships, this is simply an opportunity to transform one’s relationship with oneself in recognizing the role one played in creating that.
There is also a need to transform what it means to share within the relationship be it power, finances, support or love. There may be an imbalance of this sharing which has to do with co-dependency and lack of boundaries.
This is achieved through owning your role in the ongoing chaos and recognizing that shadow work will be necessary to have healthy adult relationships, especially if your childhood experiences were painful.
