MERCURY IN THE SEVENTH HOUSE and well-aspected makes the person popular in literary and scientific circles. It is a good position for public speakers and all who are engaged in mercurial activities of a public nature. But if Mercury is afflicted the Seventh House position brings a great deal of hostile criticism of a public nature and is liable to involve the person in litigation either to defend himself against libel from others or on account of libel committed by himself. 

A well-aspected Mercury in the Seventh House indicates a successful marriage to a relative or an employee, but when Mercury is afflicted either the person or the marriage partner is of a nagging nature so that the married life is spoiled by constant quarrels and disputes on account of fickleness and faithfulness.

 Your reasoning abilities will largely be applied to the growth and development of the mind through co-operation and communications inside human relationships. You prefer to work in partnership or with others rather than individually. You enjoy good company and social life and have the ability for communicating well with the public in general. Marriage is especially important to your mental well-being. Your partner should be an intellectual type who can give the necessary mental companionship and support. Your qualities are ideally suited to public relations work, counselling and arbitration.
