Why there is risk involved if 4th lord is placed in the 8th house in Vedic Astrology?
Home : Vedic Astrology: You are here
Since Aries sign rules the 4th house for Capricorn Ascendant people it means Capricorns are very aggressive in driving vehicles (as 4th house represents vehicles), especially if their 4th lord Mars is placed in the 8th house. This is because Aries sign (or Mars) is a sign of aggression but since Aries sign is on the 4th house it means aggression through vehicles (which means fast driving). When Aries sign is on the first house it means aggression through the physical body (like athletes). So you should know the difference what it means when Aries sign is on different houses.
Also, 8th house is the house of sudden ups and downs, risks and emergencies in your life. So, clearly, when 4th lord, Mars, is placed in the 8th house it will create risks of accidents in your life through vehicles(as you are an aggressive driver). The risk of an accident will be more if Rahu is placed in the 4th house in the sign of Aries as Rahu amplifies the aggression in the sign of Aries. The job of Rahu is to always amplify the sign it sits in and that is the reason Rahu becomes malefic sometimes.
The Aspect on 8th house from Jupiter could alter the situation, however, as the aspect (dristi) of Jupiter is always for good. Also, if Sun (ruler of 8th house) is placed in the 8th house itself (in its own sign) then also there will be some protection and this placement won't be something as life-threatening. But if there is an aspect from Saturn (Rahu is already aspecting 8th house when in 4th house (from its 5th aspect)) also on the 8th house (where Mars is placed) then this placement could be life-threatening as well.
This placement is also quite common in the birth chart of national and international level sportsmen who are involved in vehicle races such as sports car racing etc. and sports injury is quite common in them as they are into a profession involving risk to life.
8th house is 5th from 4th house and so the 8th house is also the fun, entertainment and gambling of the 4th house. Since 4th house represents your vehicles how do you do fun with your vehicles? You do fun with vehicles by enjoying driving and also participating in sports related to vehicles as sports is fun. But since 8th house represents all the risks and emergencies that come in your life so there is a risk of an accident while having fun with the vehicles.
4th house is also the house of your mother and so there could be a lot of turbulence in your mother's health or mind (and even your own mind) with 4th lord in the 8th house. But this is more so if the moon is situated in the 6th house or 8th house as the moon represents your mother in the birth and also the moon represents your own mind.
Since 8th house is also the house of gambling and 4th house is the house of your home and conveniences you may also be a gambler (risk is involved in your business) and may gamble with properties or other home conveniences with the placement of 4th lord in the 8th house. But this is more so if the lord of your 8th house is also placed in the 4th house. But either you may lose or gain money by doing this. A loss from property business is possible if your 12th lord is also placed in the 4th house as 12th house is the house of losses in your life and being in the 4th house will create a loss in property or other home-related business.
4th lord in 8th house and 8th lord in 4th house shows you could be doing property business with risks involved and 12th lord in 4th house confirms loss in the property business as wherever the 12th house lord is placed> losses are going to be from there. But if your 2nd house lord is placed in the 4th house and 12th house lord is placed somewhere else (not in 4th house) then you could even gain through gambling in properties.
