During the recent past years, I have heard and seen from many of people who are scared about the dreaded fear of 8th house – as being 8th house is always about a house of death, house of past birth curses, house of sufferings, Delays, Hurdles and obstacles and Many more blah blah things without knowing its spiritual essence etc.
One should always remember the death of Soul and Body is only one aspect of the 8th house, it has many more hidden secrets that are stored in the deep mystery world.
Death is majorly seen only when the strength of Lagnesh (1st) and 8th lord is purely devoid and weakly placed in D1, D9 and d60 chart.The main planet for Seeing Death via 8th house is always a separative planet ( Nodes ).
Always remember God never punishes you without any reason, he is the one who gives us new chance and watches our every action, and those who aspire to reach new heights for the new spiritual journey out of your past karmic actions and sins, he gave them bliss of spirituality for guiding mankind in the right path. Those who are in fear or guilt of their past actions god gave them first opportunity to learn and helps to let them transform themselves into a new path of spirituality for the well being of own soul and other pathless souls.
Astrologically, let me tell you 8th house energy is not easy to understand in simple layman language, it’s being Karka house of Scorpio, Saturn (Longevity) and Ketu (Occult and higher Spirituality).One should know first what saturn (Karmic Transformations), Scorpio and Ketu (Pending Karams, Occult and divine spirituality) represents – Initially Saturn being lord of Mooladhara chakra first gets disturbed here due to imbalanced mundane desires arise after sufferings, delays and hurdles and out of those difficulties it makes person first empty hand and when further those disappointments makes your more closer toward higher divine path it activated the Kundalini energies toward higher chakras and when all the chakras in balance state, everything including any sort of mundane desires will be comes to you without any efforts but in right time, but first preparation and learning is important Here.
Ketu being the karka of 8th it makes you ultimate divine and after learning of pending karmic duties it balances you so that you can move further without support. It’s the Universal rule, to activate your kundalni energy you need to first become balance and eligible for it and when it reaches to 12th house (Higher Sub Conscious samadhi) it makes one more toward higher almighty and its dhayan.
logically it’s not a house of death of Body and Soul, its a house of death of ego and false intelligence (represented by lagana) being falling in 8th from 1st – it ends the lagana false properties and over proud – as Rahu and Sun being stronger in lagana.
It’s more a house of spiritual transformation and sacrificing your mundane desires and gives a new understanding of spirituality being falling in 9th from 12th. It’s about the house of surrendering your false ego and destroying your falseness given by Lagana.
when you surrender all of your mundane desires and greeds it gives you new transformations that where your new experience spiritual journey starts. Mundane sufferings lead to the new journey of spirituality and transformations and end is peace and you will be a blessed one that where the roles of 9th house came ( Divine wisdom).
That’s why it is falling in 5th (Skilled require for Bhakti) from 4th – the moksha trine, where 4th is the bhakti sthan then 8th is the house of sadhna required for bhakti for divine mother – where it sits. being fallen in 12th from 9th house of Sanchit karama it represents the what is left from your past karams – the debits of past that you have to finish in this birth without any if and buts. Debits are not curses, they are left over tasks that you have to finish in any case. Its not a house of curses it only shows your debits of past wrt to your past karmas and actions you had unknowingly done by moving in Adharamic path due to negligence of intelligence and believing in false ego and proud.
Being the Natural Zodiac house of the Scorpio and 8th house it is related to the Mooladhara chakra whose colour is yellow shows the root energy sit in the Kundalini (8th house) at the bottom of the spine goes toward upward direction to lagana where Sahasara chakra sits, hence planet placed in the 8th house shows beginning of the Kundalini energy rising toward upward direction and how it manifest via the planetary energy.
2) If Ketu is there in the 8th house it shows Kundalini rises suddenly and native need to deal with the sudden burst of energy even they did not performed the spiritual practices earlier.
3) Venus shows awakening of Kundalini via Following celibacy.
4) Saturn Shows Kundalini Awakening via following Discipline and Hatha Yoga but role of Ketu is most important to balance it.
5) Mars shows Awakening via Following Vyayam and practicing physical exercises and preserving Virya.
6) Sun Shows Awakening via Gyana Yoga and Atamic Realization.
7) Jupiter shows via the help of one Guru or Spiritual practices did under a learned guru.
So, those having any number of malefic or beneficial planets in 8th house they need not worry, it’s not meant for you to suffer unknowingly it has some deeper meaning, it’s only a call from the higher divine to Surrender yourself toward him and move ahead in the path of spirituality, Yoga, and Divine union that’s what it shows 11th from 10th house- new beginning (11th) of your karma (10th)
for a society that is needed in this birth.
Only Rahu in the 8th house act as Blockage for Spiritual progress via without strict discipline, it usually disperses the Kundalini energy required to maintain it via Praan Vayu and for moving through via spine, as one cannot able to sacrifice his ego or completely surrender himself toward the almighty.Without total surrender, one can not attain the Kundalini.
In simple language 8th house shows your new spiritual journey toward higher goals, those having planets in 8th house, first Surrender your ego and let move your soul toward a higher journey of hidden secrets of spirituality.
Planets in the 8th House:
Sun in the Eighth House
The focus is on a depth of thought and communication. These individuals need deep communication and intellectual intimacy in relationships. They enjoy sharing their deepest, darkest secrets with others and need others to open up to them verbally. They often keep their thoughts to themselves for fear that others will not understand them. These individuals often think about death and their own mortality and at times worry about this topic. They have a keen, insightful mind and sharp tongue.
The energy is focused on keeping the love nature secret and private. These individuals often benefit through the marriage partner and tend to marry someone of a higher financial status than themselves. They are blessed by the partner’s possessions and relationship. Their love nature is deep, possessive and intense.
Mars in the Eighth House
Jupiter in the Eighth House
The energy is focused towards expansion, abundance and good luck. These individuals often inherit money, land, and goods from the dead. They often are naturally lucky and are looked after by others. They draw financial and material things into their lives easier. This is a positive position of Jupiter and I often see individuals with intuitive gifts that come naturally.
North Node(Rahu) in the Eighth House
Individuals with North Node in this house are born to be healers. their spiritual mission in this lifetime is to heal others and many do this through energy work such as reiki, pranic healing, yoga, massage therapy and psychotherapy. These individuals are learning to let go of the past and detach from the need for physical, material and emotional security. They must embrace change and oftentimes the universe forces them to change by taking things away from them. This can manifest as divorce, a death of a loved one, loss of job, etc. The purpose of this pain is to force these individuals to become more spiritual and to become the “wounded healer.”
South Node(Ketu) in the Eighth HouseIndividuals with South Node in this house are meant to focus on finding security and balance in their lives. They have been through drama, change, and upheaval in the past and now desire to settle down and find comfort. They are meant to stick with things to completion and not end things before it is time. They are born to accumulate possessions and to focus on practical matters this lifetime.
