Relationship Axis (1st house/7th house)
Knowing your partners 7th house cusp (the relationship house) and the ruler of that house will indicate the type of partner you may attract or are attracted to and the method of relating within a relationship.
~*~The Ascendant or Rising sign is the sign rising on the horizon at the time of birth. This is the face we show the world, our “mask” for which our Sun conceals. This is our outer personality, temperament and disposition as well as how we experienced our early home environment growing up. It is the way others see us and also gives indication of our physical appearance. The ruler of the Ascendant and the aspects (connections to other planets in your birth chart) further delineate and define the physical appearance.
~*~The Descendant, or 7th house cusp, its ruler and the aspects it makes in your birth chart, is symbolic of the type of partner you are attracted to or who you attract into your life. The 7th house is the house of all partnerships including marriage and legal contracts yet also considered the house of open enemies or the Defendant in a law suit.
~*~In relationships, Taurus’ ruling planet is feminine Venus. If you have a Taurus Ascendant, you appear practical, sensual, and hardy and maintain a reliable and steadfast disposition. You prefer kissing and caressing, especially in the neck and throat area. Because you are a fixed, earth sign, it would be difficult to change your mind on any subject or idea. Yet once you set your sights on some one or something, your focus is unwavering! You desire loyalty and passion in your relationships. Jealousy and possessiveness are a tendency as well as a propensity for conceit and overindulgence.
~*~With Mars/Pluto ruled Scorpio on the descendant, you seek a sexy, intense, sensual and passionate partner. Loyalty is a must. A superficial relationship would hold no appeal for this placement.
~*~One of the first things you could look at when presented with the birth data of a potential partner, is their Mars or Pluto placement since these planets rule your Descendant. If the potential partner has these planets in ease with other planets, that energy will be positively brought into your relationship with this individual. One thing you just don’t know about any individual, even with birth data, is how “evolved” that person is and how they have dealt with their past life challenges and relationships. The only way to know this is by speaking with the individual to see where they are in their life. Squares (tension) are absolutely necessary in individuals as well as in relationships. Without them we don’t grow and life stagnates and is uneventful.
~*~It is also possible for a Taurus Ascendant person to attract a partner who has Venus prominent in their chart. Prominent Venus would be in aspect, connecting to the Sun, Moon, Mars, or Mercury or elevated in conjunction to the MC (10th house cusp) or IC (4th house cusp) conjunct or ruling their Ascendant or Descendant or connecting with the Sun sign in Virgo, Capricorn and Cancer.
~*~Knowing the date, time, and place of birth is important in making the determination of the Ascendant or Rising sign, the sign rising on the horizon at the time of birth. This cusp sets up all the other house cusps. (the divisions of the houses or areas of life.)
