Saturn also can be 7th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 7th house lord, Saturn in 12th house (for Cancer/Leo Ascendants respectively) shows that access to foreign lands or foreign travels came late in life. In early life, they may have tried a lot to reach to foreign lands but their may be one or the other obstacles. Saturn in Gemini for Cancer Ascendant shows someone in Service of others in Foreign Lands in the field of Communications, most probably in MNCs. It also shows that person is frugal or miser and doesn't spend a lot. Saturn in Cancer for Leo Ascendant shows a healer and someone who has some issues running with mother. It also shows a Lawyer or Judge in Foreign Lands. With Saturn in Cancer in 12th house, it seems that it will be the case of obstacles or disputes in marriage as Saturn being a malefic planet is 7th lord and is sitting in 12th house in not so good dignity. Saturn ruling the 7th house is generic position for a delayed marriage. Again, any other yoga or dasha can change the scenario totally.
If Rahu is 7th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 12th house in Cancer then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Cancer in 12th house will transform Rahu as Moon 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 Cancer in 12th house basically indicates that this native/spouse will be extremely emotional. But as Rahu remains a malefic energy, it may show that someone using emotions for some hidden gains. This position will certainly link spouse to foreign lands as Rahu too represents Foreign Things. Rahu in 12th house shows person is kind of spendthrift. He is unable to save anything. But this position shows huge karma with foreign lands.
Likewise, If Ketu is 7th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 12th house in Aries then 1st of all we need to make sure of Mars' position as it is the main ruler. As Ketu isolates/separates a person/spouse from the things related to the house Ketu is sitting, here it separates person from the spiritual beliefs spread by others. They never find themselves agree with the concepts of spirituality of others and always find fault there. Similarly, they reach foreign land but don't find anything of interest there and feel isolated. It is one of the most prominent Moksha Margi position. Ketu in Aries shows that these people will always assert their individuality in Spiritual matters. They will assert that they have the best spiritual concepts.
