If Rahu-7 shares a rashi with other graha, several marriages are indicated and the most extraordinary, ambitious one should be identified according to the degree order of the graha in the cluster.

Rahu-7 operates on the assumption that all problems will resolve as soon as the perfect partner is obtained. The quest for the perfect partnership is never-ending. Spouse is likely a very strong, expedient personality.
Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-7 suggests an unusual, exotic, extravagant, risk-taking spouse. Partner = poseur.
Spouse may display exaggerated need for privilege or grandiose expectations. Unwilling partner may drive the native to other mates.

Rahu in bhava-7 = craves a privileged trust - usually a major social step up, by marriage or diplomatically brokered agreement.
Passion to be recognized as an equal via bargaining and negotiating with those of higher status, although one has not yet earned the status conferring genuine equality.
Via Rahu's characteristic over-promotion, Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-7 may enter an inappropriate marriage or contract that is "over one's head".
Expedient and instrumental alliances shape the identity of the Ketu-1 person. Strong tendency to be utilized by more powerful and ambitious Others, who may promote the native as a figurehead -- and when they are finished using Ketu-1 the native suddenly disappears.
Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-7 wishes to feel specially "chosen" for a privileged role: permission to join elite interpersonal alliances, particularly to engage in privileged marriages and contracts.
Ambition to form partnerships with fascinating, privileged persons
tends to marry up
yuti Shukra or another dhanakaraka such as dhanapathi-values-treasuries, may indicate amplified financial contracts
A bargainer, wheeler-dealer, negotiator, contract-maker, facilitator, middle-man, or broker with a special propensity to enter into promises with:
privileged foreigners ,
those with very different expectations,
partners of a higher social status or power rank ,
partners from more powerful cultural backgrounds who may interpret the agreement in ways that are exotic to the expectations of Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-7
Engages in exotic or barrier-bending, taboo-twisting counseling-advising relationships.
Due to these pressures, unless blocked by Shani, unstable and ambitious Rahu in 7 Generally, indicates several marriages
Via deal-making instincts, ambitious promises, and veiled concessions made during the bargain, one may end up in relationships and holding unsustainable commitments that are "over one's head".
Great Leap Forward via Alliance: Contracts, Agreements, Bargains
Generally, multiple marriages - but this prediction should be based on Rahu's planetary lord rather than the mere presence of Rahu in bhava-7.
Kumbha and Vrishabha
In rare cases of intensive spiritual practice
Alliance and negotiation provides the snake-hole aperture through which the ambitious Naga King slithers, slides, and springs upward.
Rahu Risk-taking as a response to conflict

As the great taboo-breaker, Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-7 disregards customary moral boundaries and signals behavioral inconsistency of the spouse
Rahu the Rakshasa feeds upon chaotic and manipulative circumstances within the world of marriage, contracts, promises, trusts, negotiation, alliances, partnership.
Rahu the Mixer disrupts the customary habits of married life (particularly affecting exclusivity contracts), upsets the schedule of alliance negotiations, and makes one privy to a disturbing and possibly dangerous spouse or partner.
In the business partners and peer advisers;
in the process of making and keeping promises.
Les agents provocateurs represented by Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-7 = not necessarily an immoral influence. The agent desires to obtain privileged experiences via"leapfrog" without having followed the conventional proving steps toward social approval of"parity" (7 = matching, partnership, pairs).

Menstrual homework-problems for women due to ovarian imbalance-seeking-a-remedy. Diabetic or other paired-organ imbalance-seeking-a-remedy.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-7:
Marriage Contract = the Perfect Disguise
Recently I have seen three nativities with Rahu-Kanya-7 that corresponded to life stories involving the recently labeled cultural phenomenon "living on the DL". Two were wives of DL men and one case was a DL male native.
Kanya = the unmarried virgin. Kanya = bhava-6 = dissolution of the marriage agreement.
Kanya signifies being un-yoked, not under contract, unmarried. Jyotisha literature often refers to Kanya as an unmarried female, but Kanya ruled by genderless (or eunuch) Budha really has no gender.
The Latinate term"Virgo" comes from the IE root"wi-ro" meaning 'man' or 'human', which later develops into English words like"virile","virtue","world" [wir-alt], and even"were-wolf".
Linguistically it can be seen that Kanya refers to both unmarried men and unmarried women.
DL = American English jargon = "down low".
DL = a historic but only recently labeled-as-such lifestyle whereby a man, for his own reasons, maintains two sexual lives.
His public life is shown to his parents, his extended family, and his official community including his religious affiliations and professional employment.
Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-7 's primary identity is is validated by a heterosexual marriage with wife and family, and willing participation in traditional straight men's clubs, church, sports, etc.
Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-7 appears to be handsome, successful, and"very married".
Shielded by this convincing disguise [Rahu] Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-7 also operates a second, homosexual lifestyle. Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-7 may socialize and mate within an illicit [Kanya]"loka" (world) = a location that is proximate to but not culturally connected with the people or activities of the main identity.
Often, this loka = smoky [Rahu] rooms in underclass [Rahu] parts of town. In these outcast [Rahu] environments, men cavort with other men. They pretend [Rahu] as if they are not married [Kanya].
Men living a DL lifestyle share a relationship bond (7) of protecting each other's disguised identities. The mutual fraud [Rahu] is considered a bond of honor which allows participants to continue to enjoy the high regard of their ethnic community, while also pursuing the experience of intensely erotic, dangerous, and forbidden desires. When in public settings, they refrain from showing the traits that would reveal the nature of their alternative [Rahu] mating (7) behaviors.
Frequently the DL man is a model husband and father. Sexual relations in marriage may seem somewhat distant or distracted, and the man may have some unexplained absences, but in general a Rahu-Kanya in bhava-7 has composed a functional and effective argument [Kanya] which successfully rationalizes the rakshasic [Rahu] behavior.
(not dissimilar to a 'functional' alcoholic who successfully compartmentalizes his addictive behaviors.)
The wife, even if she finds out, may choose to 'save face' (7) and not expose the fraud. Thus the Rahu-Kanya-7 yoga = marriage partners who share a conflict that they cannot disclose to others .
outlier, taboo, foreign element
Spouse is an outsider or foreigner in some cultural category:
Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-7 and their spouse both have powerful desires. Unstable partnerships unless Shani casts an influence. They like to take risks, both with each other and outside the marriage. High sense of personal entitlement may lead to an exciting or luxurious lifestyle. Partners encourage each other to take greater risks and cross more boundaries.
Not a karaka for fidelity, but an open marriage may be acceptable to both spouses. Helps successful business trade in forbidden or taboo items such as human persons or body parts, sexual services or paraphernalia, drugs of any kind (including beneficial drugs), stolen or contraband goods, unapproved or experimental practices, legal advocacy for foreigners and outcastes. Karaka for multiple marriages.
Foreign, exotic, or barrier-bending, taboo-twisting attributes of the spouse. Marriage represents entitlement to satisfy a personal desire at the expense of social conformity.
Spouse and Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-7 may be externally successful in worldly life, but the spouses boundary-breaking excesses or foreign behaviors are a permanent source of instability and challenge in entrancing Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-7 's life. Spouse is inappropriate.
Rahu in bhava-7 is excellent for international business negotiations; spouse's diplomatic capabilities with foreigners is an asset. Spouse from a different cultural background, or was born geographically a long distance away from the birth place of Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-7 .
Also good for careers in counseling/advising in multi-cultural and socially taboo-content relationships.
Das / Behari commentary = Rahu occupies bhava-7
"Rahu, being a karmic planet, creates much unhappiness in the Seventh Bhava.
you either suffer from genito-urinary troubles or are dishonorable .
Very often you have to face separation, divorce, or death of the marriage partner.
Fond of traveling, of changing your job, and of cultivating new associations - all with the objective of securing something for personal satisfaction.
Separation from the relatives and public slander.
Hostile to partner, furious, quarrelsome, sick, restless, malicious, strife, opposition and hindrance in every work.
Conceited, sensual and sick.
Trouble and difficulty in travel, rheumatism.
Frightened, irreligious, cruel.
Fast but without family happiness.
Luck through sinful acts.
Gain through dealing with others.
This Rahu is not a killer; but can cause danger to the people indicated by the bhava."

during Vimshottari periods of Rahu, Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-7's upward trajectory may involve fraudulent or irregular unions or alliance-seeking negotiations that are"over one's head".
Final results depend on the disposition of the ruler of Rahu's rashi.
