Saturn also can be 7th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 7th house lord, Saturn in 7th house (for Cancer/Leo Ascendants respectively) surely shows delay, restrictions in married life. When it comes to Saturn, it is always advisable that marriage must be delayed till 30 at least; else we are here for some serious issues. Once it is delayed, Saturn then also represents stability. So, once marriage is delayed, Saturn gives a stable married life which lasts long. So, this is the thing with Saturn that it makes everything hard to come. Here, spouse may be a Govt Officer, Lawyer, Judge or working in Large Organization,mostly in Legal field. But for relationship, always follow Saturn's condition of delay.
If Rahu is 7th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 7th house in Aquarius then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Aquarius in 7th house will transform Rahu as Saturn as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. At the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Aquarius in 7th house basically indicates that your spouse may be from a Foreign Origin. Spouse may be working in Large Organization or MNCs. Spouse may be in Foreign Land. In early life, person went through lots of relations to find out right partner. Rahu in 7th house shows a person who may be having an unusual marriage or relationship. Here unusual means, inter-caste, inter-religious, Foreign Spouse or even having more than one marriage.
Likewise, If Ketu is 7th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 7th house in Scorpio then 1st of all we need to make sure of Mars' position as it is the main ruler. As Ketu isolates/separates a person from the things related to the house Ketu is sitting, here it separates person from the concept of being in relation. They are not one of those who are looking out for their first or next partner. They are quite content and spiritual about themselves and their relations. It remains a possibility with Ketu in 7th house always that person is disinterested towards relations. The only way relation can survive in such cases is that couple becomes highly spiritual in matters of relations, means they are happy with whomsoever they marry with no expectations at all. Conjunction/Aspect of a benefic planet may change the situation altogether. At the same time, they may be highly investigative about the occult side of life.
