What if 4th lord Venus is in 7th house for a Cancer Ascendant? (Vedic Astrology)
Home : Vedic Astrology: 4th lord in 7th house: You are here
There are actually three 3 Nakshatras that fall in the sign of Capricorn and those are Shravana, Dhanishta, and Uttara Ashadha and there are 4 Padas associated with each Nakshatra. You need to check in your Astrology Software which exact Nakshatra and it's Pada your Venus falls in the 7th house and accordingly, the results will vary.
4th house is the house of nurturing and represents our heart (or soul). Usually, what it is there in our heart that is what we want to do and that is how we nurture others by providing a service to them in some way or the other. Since the sign of Libra rules the 4th house it shows your heart is towards either resolving people's disputes or making business contracts related to whatever you are doing. This is because this is what the sign of Libra represents which is falling on your 4th house. But you will get the results based on where the lord of 4th house Venus is placed.
Now when Venus is placed in the 7th house in the sign of Capricorn we need to look at the position of Saturn in the birth chart in order to know what Venus would do. As an example, if Saturn is placed in the sign of Cancer in the first house and if Moon, the lord of 1st house or the sign of Cancer, is placed in the sign of Leo in the 2nd house, then it could really make you very creative in something like arts and designing especially if Sun (lord of Leo) and Mercury are placed in the sign of Virgo in the 3rd house and Jupiter (the lord of 6th house) is placed in the 4th house in the sign of Libra.
This is because 2nd house is ruled by Venus (in the default zodiac) and so it is the house of creativity and so Moon or your mind in this house becomes very creative but Sun (ruler of 2nd house) and Mercury needs to be placed in the 3rd house in the sign of Virgo as when you do any sort of designing whether online (such as Photoshop) or on a piece of paper Mercury and Sun in the Virgo sign really help as Virgo is a sign of detail-oriented work and Mercury (your logical intelligence) is considered exalted in its own sign Virgo.
Also, Saturn in the sign of Cancer does the action (as Saturn is a planet of action) of mind work as Moon (ruling Cancer) is our mind and when Moon is placed in the sign of Leo the mind does creative work (unless Sun is damaged) as Leo is a sign of creativity and fun. You could also play a lot of video games when Moon is in the sign of Leo as Leo represents fun and playing games are nothing but fun.
But you should also note that creativity (designing) is involved in different fields of life and it is not just about drawing or painting on a piece of paper. You could also be a web designer, printing t-shirts or printing on clothing in general, mobile design, crafts, pottery, embroidery, video editing, etc.
So as you can see what Venus will do in the sign of Capricorn in the 7th house will entirely depend on the location of Saturn in the birth chart. But if Saturn is seated along with Venus in the 7th house itself then you need to look at the exact Nakshatra and its Pada where Venus is located.
For example, if your Venus is placed in the Pada 1 of the Dhanistha Nakshatra then you could enjoy music a lot and also if Mercury and Mars are seated along with > Saturn and Venus > in this Nakshatra in the 7th house then it could also make you a musician or someone good at playing musical instruments as the symbol of Dhanistha Nakshatra is "musical drum" and so this Nakshatra is more about enjoyment through music.
When Saturn, Mercury, and Mars are placed in the 7th house in the Dhanishtha Nakshatra along with Venus then you could make music as your profession otherwise you will only enjoy music a lot in your life if Venus alone is placed in the 7th house. But since Dhanistha Nakshatra is ruled by Mars you could also be very active in any kind of sports. Just check the birth chart of national and international sportsmen and you will find many of them having their Mars or Saturn in the Dhanistha Nakshatra. Hardik Pandya, the Indian cricketer, has his Saturn in the Dhanistha Nakshatra. But people in police and military also have planets in this Nakshatra as this Nakshatra is all about being aggressive (Mars is aggression as Mars rules this Nakshatra) to win the battle. Nowadays sports is the main battle while in the olden days it was war.
The sign of Capricorn is a sign of kingship and leadership and in olden days people used to take over other's kingdom to extend their borders. The soldiers participating in such kind of wars mostly had their Venus and other planets in this Dhanistha Nakshatra.
Venus in the Shravana Nakshatra may give the career of Counselling
But if your Venus is placed in the Nakshatra of Shravana then this Nakshatra is more about listening to people's problems and counseling them such as mental health counselor, marriage therapist or so-called divorce counsellor, psychiatrist, substance abuse social worker, lawyer, neuropsychologist, arbitrator, family social worker, judge, school counselor, radio host, drama and life coach, spiritual counselor, recruiter, etc. You can know more about these careers in more details at careerexplorer.com. You may be involved in one of these if your Venus and some other planets like Saturn and Mars are placed in the Shravana Nakshatra. People who have their Moon in this Shravana Nakshatra are very good listeners in the sense as mentioned in more details here.
Recruitment is a strong profession denoted by Venus in the Shravana Nakshatra (in Capricorn in 7th house) as in this profession you listen to the candidates carefully in order to select the one with the best option for your company. Also, Capricorn is a sign of the 10th house in the default zodiac which is the house of jobs, career, and recruitment.
You see there are also people who are social workers and political leaders who visit the poor people in slum areas and listen to their problems of daily life such as related to water, electricity, education, etc. Such people usually have their Venus along with some other planets in the Shravana Nakshatra in the sign of Capricorn in the 7th house. So you could also be one of them if you have such placement of Venus. Also, the sign of Capricorn is a sign of authority and government and you need to have the authority to achieve your goal of social welfare.
But there are also waiters in a restaurant or a hotel where they listen to what the customers need in their order and fulfill it. Such people may also have their Venus in the 7th house in the sign of Capricorn. This is because Shravana Nakshatra is ruled by Moon and the moon also denotes nurturing such as serving the food. A Good example is Rahu Gandhi (a political leader) whose Ascendant is in the Shravana Nakshatra and you can often find him visiting slum areas and the villages to listen to poor people's problems.
