The House of Partnerships
The Latin motto UXOR for this house translates to “spouse”. That being said, the topic of relationships is not relegated only to romantic ones. Whoever is closest to you (business partner or friend) that can fall within striking distance of your anger and resentment is a relevant relationship when discussing this house. The 7th house of the zodiac, HoP is associated with Libra— an air sign. Prizing knowledge before most things, air signs see this as the ultimate virtue and therefore are ruled by the mind. Anxiety then, is the metaphorical poltergeist of the brain. When haunted by anxiety, knowledge becomes a burden made heavier by suspicion, resentments and analysis paralysis.
A grudge, resentment, or emotional burden. If you have ever fantasized about ripping your ex a new one, that’s the emotional equivalent of carrying around a severed head.
Think of the language of flowers as the emojis of the Victorian era. People used flowers to convey deeper messages to those they knew and loved. Lavender signifies devotion and caution while lily of the valley symbolizes the restoration of innocence after death. According to Cunningham’s Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs, lavender is associated with air signs—possessing love, power, and purification powers and is therefore used in spells for these purposes. Lily of the Valley (also an air sign plant) is said to improve the memory and mind. Ya know, the better to hold on to grudges!
