Did you know that synastry overlays are one of the first things to look at when doing a synastry analysis?
Sun in the 7th house synastry overlay will give us on overview of how our egos interact and how our partner’s creative expression plays out in our life; whether it inspires us or makes us feel belittled. And vice versa.
The Sun is our vital force, it is the main inner driver that gives us a reason to live on this earth, so it is a central part of the horoscope that shouldn’t be overlooked when examining the possible emotional and psychological dynamics of a relationship.
So, what does the Sun in 7th house synastry overlay imply about your relationship?
I will give you ALL possible versions of how this can play out in your life if you just keep reading.
Studying the separate horoscope of each partner is crucial, because this gives imperative insight into what each individual needs in a relationship. The separate horoscopes of both partners reveal hidden emotional patterns, which the individual may not even be aware of. The birth chart of each partner provides important information about how they approach a relationship, what type of relationship is most suitable for their personality and subconscious behavioral patterns, and whether they need to undergo considerable inner growth before they can mature for a long-term union.
Most importantly, the separate horoscope of each individual provides hidden trauma that may be sabotaging each and every relationship they form, which may in turn undermine this particular union if they are not consciously working on alleviating pain from the past.
The position of the Sun, Moon, Venus and Mars should be closely examined in each of the horoscopes, and so should the state of the 1st, 7th, 5th house and their rulers. It is especially critical to look at hard aspect between Moon, Venus, Mars and Saturn and Pluto. Challenging aspects with Saturn will give the individual an inborn inability to express love and would suggest a certain level of maturity before they can get married and create a family.
Difficult aspects with Pluto would suggest deep psychological trauma, an inherent tendency to manipulate and in the case of a Pluto-Mars square even a tendency for violence or attracting aggressive partners.

In the birth chart, the Sun represents the center of our personality, just as the Sun is the center of the solar system.
The Sun’s position in the natal chart – by sign, house and aspects creates the fundamental basis of our character, on which all other influences from the other planets are superimposed. For this reason, when we compare the birth charts of two people, we first pay attention to the relative position of their Suns. Although the streams of influence between two people flow through different energy channels, connecting different points of their horoscopes, the Sun with its representation of the ego is one of the principal channels of interaction that needs to be examined.
In synastry analysis, when we do an overlay of two birth horoscopes, your partner’s Sun falls in one of the twelve houses of your horoscope. In each of these twelve positions, it sets a certain color for your relationship and shows an area of your life where the other will have a strong influence.

We feel like the person’s planets are ‘partnering’ with our deeper self to make us a more complete and well-rounded person. This is why we may feel like we’ve found our ‘other half’ in the person, whose Sun falls in our 7th house.

The Psychology Behind Sun in 7th House Synastry
When one’s Sun falls in the seventh house of their partner’s horoscope, and particularly when it is in conjunction with the western horizon, this can signify that they are the ideal person to work in partnership with the house person.
The Sun person can help the house person to strengthen their weak points, which the Sun person may be able to recognize without difficulty.
If strong afflictions should be involved in the Sun in 7th house synastry overlay, an element of rivalry may well be evident in the relationship and the Sun person might be tempted to exploit his or her knowledge of the house person’s vulnerable areas and thus throw them completely off balance.
At best, the Sun person can be a desirable partner and a valuable ally, who is able to augment the house person’s social circle and provide considerable support for them.
Under affliction, the Sun person may allow their independence to over-ride any desire to co-operate and, at worst, he or she could prove to be a formidable opponent to the house person in the Sun in 7th house synastry overlay.
In a lawyer-client relationship, this is a good position for the lawyer’s Sun, provided it is reasonably free from affliction natally and from the client’s horoscope.
