Upside: This home is a nurturing and beautiful environment for families and for people who want to live in a house that feels like home. This is the place to nurture and be nurtured – it’s truly a sanctuary. Children and animals thrive here and it’s a home of taste and usually has an artistic and creative flair.
Downside: Since “responsibility” is the cornerstone for the energy of the 6, you might feel bogged down by responsibility in this home. The trick is to balance self-care with the care and loving service to others. You might also feel as though you want to just hang out in your little cocoon all the time and not venture out and engage with the world. Don’t cut yourself off from your engagement with experiences and people outside of your own family circle.

Glitches & Potential Challenges: If you’re looking for an environment that’s set up to move you forward in practical ways in the material world, this is not the place for you. The 7 home fosters and focuses on your “internal journey” to the exclusion of more practical and material endeavors. If your priority at this time in your life is to get your cash flow going and make your mark in a high-energy career, you’ll find the energy of the 7 home challenging. This home supports contemplation and intellectual pursuits, so if you’re in a relationship or marriage, you’ll have to make a special effort to connect and communicate clearly with your partner. Otherwise, the energy of the 7 is much more internally focused and self-directed, so you can confuse people when they feel you’re perhaps a bit aloof or stand-offish.
You might find yourself tempted to escape through addictions or living very much “in your head” to the point of feeling intellectually superior to others, particularly if you live in a 16 home – which is a karmic number.

Downside: You might have a tendency to feel like a loner in this home. If you enjoy a vibrant social life, this home won’t jive with you. Since the number 7 also loves to escape, it’s not the best choice if you struggle with drug or alcohol issues.
