Exalted Rahu in Seventh House
Rahu is exalted in Taurus as well as in Virgo. For the sake of this discussion, we’ll consider both these placements of Rahu. Exalted Rahu is benefic in the seventh house in some cases whereas it turns malefic in some cases. The influences of other benefic and malefic planets on Rahu and the overall theme of horoscope are important criteria when it comes to decide the functional nature of Rahu in a horoscope.
As the number and strength of benefic or malefic planets influencing Rahu in a horoscope increases, Rahu may become more benefic or malefic.

When exalted Rahu is placed in the seventh house of a horoscope, the marriage becomes a sphere which draws a lot of attention. Benefic exalted Rahu in the seventh house can bless the native with a wide variety of good results through marriage. The native may get married to someone who is richer or much richer than him/her. The native may get married to the citizen of a foreign country and he may settle abroad on the basis of marriage where he may witness a much better lifestyle and much more professional success. Such benefic exalted Rahu can get the native married to someone who may prove an important pillar of his/her life.

Taking an example, suppose benefic exalted Rahu is placed in the seventh house of a horoscope in Taurus. Ketu is placed in the first house in Scorpio, exalted Venus is placed in the fifth house in Pisces along with benefic Jupiter, and benefic exalted Saturn is placed in the twelfth house in Libra. In this case, the native may get married to a woman who may be rich, and she may be the citizen of a foreign country. The native may move to such foreign country after marriage and he may witness good results related to profession, finances as well as the health of marriage. Native’s wife may support him a lot in establishing his career and the couple may have good chemistry between them.
If Mars is placed in the eighth house in Gemini, benefic Moon is placed in the fifth house in Pisces with Jupiter and Venus, and a benefic combination of exalted Sun and Mercury is placed in the sixth house in Aries, the equation may improve. In this case, the native may get married to a woman who may be the citizen of a foreign country and he may settle abroad. His wife may be very rich, and she may be a celebrity in her country, like an actor or singer. The native may benefit a lot due to his wife and the couple may have a good marriage though it may have its ups and downs. The native may also get blessed with beautiful and creative children who may achieve success and fame in life. The native may also make a career in a creative field, and his wife may play key role in building his career.

On the other hand, malefic exalted Rahu in the seventh house of horoscope can trouble the native with problems related to marriage, husband, wife, profession, finances, reputation, health, lifespan and several other problems, depending on his overall horoscope.
Such malefic exalted Rahu can cause various types of problems related to native’s marriage and these problems may increase in quantum when such Rahu is supported by other malefic planets and/or an overall malefic horoscope. Taking an example, suppose malefic exalted Rahu is placed in the seventh house of a horoscope in Taurus with malefic Mercury.

In this case, the native may get married at an early age and he may witness serious problems in his marriage.

If Mars is placed in the sixth house in Aries with Venus, Jupiter is placed in the first house in Scorpio with Ketu, benefic Moon is placed in the fourth house in Aquarius and Saturn is placed in the eighth house in Gemini with Sun, the equation may become more troublesome. In this case, the native may witness two or three failed marriages, on account of serious problems in them. The native may lose his first wife to death and he may lose his second and/or third wife to divorce. After the second or third failed marriage, the native may choose to remain single, which may happen after his age of 40, unless the finer factors and running times suggest another marriage which may sustain. The native may have children from his first marriage, and they may be a key factor in making the next marriages of the native fail. It means that the second and third spouse of the native may have serious differences with his children and such difference may play a significant role in breaking such marriages.
Apart from these, malefic exalted Rahu in the seventh house of horoscope can trouble the native with several other problems, depending on his overall horoscope.
