7th house profection year

Have you ever wondered why some years seem to be all about love and relationships while others focus more on personal growth or career?

Well, it has a lot to do with your natal chart and the magic of profections. Today, we’re diving into a special year in everyone’s life: the 7th house profection year

Now, you might be wondering, “What on Earth is a 7th house profection year?” Don’t worry; you’ll be an expert by the end of this post.

This year is all about your partners and relationships with others. Intrigued yet? Let’s get started!

By the way, I have designed an annual profection worksheet that has everything you need to identify repeating themes in your life and plan ahead. Enjoy; as of now, it’s completely free!

This post is all about the 7th house profection year.

Understanding Year Profections: The Basics

First things first, let’s break down what profections are. 

In the Hellenistic tradition of astrology, profections are a time-lord technique that helps us understand the themes and lessons we’ll encounter at a given time period. 

Think of it as your spiritual guide for the year. Cool, right?

So, how do you calculate your profected year? It’s simpler than you might think. 

Each year of your life corresponds to a different house in your natal chart. Your first year of life is linked to your 1st house, your second year to your 2nd house, and so forth. After your 12th house profection year, the cycle starts all over again.

Following this logic, we experience the 7th house profection year at the age of 6, 18, 30, 42, 54, 66, 78, and 90.

Use the annual profection chart below to find out which profection year you are in right now. Find your age among the white font numbers below. After that, double check which profection year your particular age corresponds to (black font numbers in the center of the wheel).

Now, let’s talk about the time lord

The time lord is the ruling planet of your activated house for the year. This planet will significantly influence the area of life highlighted in your profected year. 

Stay with me because we’re about to delve into the world of the 7th house. Ready to see what your 7th house profection year has in store for you? Let’s go!

Note: Remember, your profections change on your birthday, not January 1st. So, don’t forget to check your annual profection chart (see above) around your next solar return!

Deeper Dive Into the 7th House

Alright, stargazers! Now you may wonder: “What does the 7th house represent?” Let’s dive into the heart of your natal chart and explore the magic of the 7th house.

What’s so special about this house? 

Well, in the zodiac sign spectrum, the 7th house is all about partnerships, contracts, and, you guessed it, romantic relationships! It may also throw a spotlight on your public image. So, during your seventh house profection year, expect these areas of life to take center stage.

The time lord, or ruling planet, for your 7th house has a huge part to play here. For instance, if Venus rules your 7th house, you may experience a surge in your love life or a positive change in how others perceive you.

Now, remember, the profection technique uses the whole sign house system. According to the whole sign astrology, the 7th house’s area in your natal chart may differ from the 7th house you are used to in other house systems. 

Understanding the Whole Sign House System

What is the whole sign house system? 

Whole Sign Astrology is an ancient, simple astrological technique for reading birth charts. In this technique, the entire zodiac sign that contains the Ascendant (the rising sign, the degree rising on the eastern horizon at the time of birth) becomes the 1st house, and the subsequent signs follow in order.

In other words, different signs become different houses, where one sign equals one astrological house.

Consequently, all planets within the same sign are regarded as residing in the same house.

Let’s take an example to understand Whole Sign Astrology better. In the case of a native with the Ascendant sign at 20 degrees Pisces, the entire sign of Pisces becomes the 1st house, the next sign of Aries becomes the 2nd house, Taurus the 3rd house, and so on, until the 12th house, which would be Aquarius.

The Role of the Time Lord in Your Natal Chart

As we delve deeper into our 7th house profection year, it’s time to meet the star of the show: the Time Lord. No, we’re not talking about a character from a sci-fi series, although that would be exciting, right?

The Time Lord in astrology is your ruling planet for the year. It’s like the director of your life movie for the given time period, calling the shots and setting the stage. So, let’s get to know this celestial VIP a little better!

In the whole sign house system, each year of your life is associated with a different house, starting with the 1st house profection year in your first year of life. The Time Lord, or ruling planet, is determined by the zodiac sign associated with the profected house for that particular year.

For example, if you’re entering your 7th house profection year and your 7th house is ruled by Venus (because it’s in Libra or Taurus), Venus is your Time Lord for the year.

Here is a handy table with all 12 zodiac sign and their traditional and modern rulers (if the ruling planets are different, and you are unsure which one to choose – I recommend you to choose the modern one):

During your 7th house profection year, the Time Lord wields a lot of power.

It impacts various areas of life, especially those related to the seventh house, such as private and professional partnerships, marriage, public image, and even your life partner.

Remember, this doesn’t mean you’ll suddenly find ‘the one’ or become a celebrity overnight (although that can happen, too!). Instead, it signifies that these areas might become your major focus this year. You could find yourself spending more time nurturing your romantic relationships or taking steps to enhance your public image.

Awareness of your Time Lord’s influence can help you navigate the ups and downs of your 7th house profection year.

For instance, if Venus is your Time Lord and it’s in a challenging position in your natal chart, you might need to prepare for some bumps in your love life or personal growth journey. But don’t fret! Remember, every challenge is an opportunity for positive change and spiritual growth.

The Significance of the 7th House Profection Year

Moving on to the significance of the seventh house profection year. How is this year different from, say, your 2nd house profection year or your 9th house profection year?

Well, each year brings its own flavor and area of focus. Your 12th house profection year might have been all about self-reflection, inner child work, and mental health. Your 8th house profection year could have brought major changes in your values, emotional bonds, or secret life.

But your 7th house year? The 7th house protection year is all about relationships, marriage, professional partnerships, and your public image. This is the year you experience at age 6, 18, 30, 42, 54, 66, 78, and 90.

If romantic relationships are a part of your natal promise (the potential seen in your birth chart), buckle up because it will be an exciting ride!

Love might just come knocking at your door. If you’re single, this could be the year when you meet a significant romantic partner. Already in a relationship? It’s a great time to deepen your bond or make important decisions like moving in together.

Alternatively, you can go through a difficult separation, learn a lot about the different languages of love, gain the courage to show your feelings, or experience the healing of some old heart wounds.

In this given time period, you might find yourself spending more time with your life partner or seeking a romantic partner. You might also notice a shift in your public image. Are you suddenly getting recognized for your hard work at your daily job? Or perhaps you’re feeling a pull towards redefining your public persona. Either way, it’s going to be an exciting journey!

The 7th House is not only about your love life; it represents all forms of partnerships, from business collaborations to close friendships

Interestingly, the 7th house isn’t just about relationships with individuals either; it can also represent a collective of people.

Let’s say you’re a theatre actor. In this context, your audience becomes your partner. Your connection with them, the energy exchange that happens during performances, the mutual understanding and shared experience – that’s all a part of the 7th house energy.

Thus, in our example, during your 7th house profection year, you might find yourself more in tune with your audience. You could experience deeper connections, more impactful performances, or even significant growth in your popularity.

The 7th house profection year illuminates the relationships and connections in your life, allowing you to understand them better, collaborate, and grow from those experiences.

Embrace this year’s energy, and let the stars guide you where you need to be!

Each zodiac sign has its own time lord (or the ruling planet) that takes the director’s seat during your profection year. Depending on which zodiac sign is activated, these time lords can bring additional energies into focus. 

Here’s a friendly guide to help you navigate:
