What if Rahu is in 8th house for Gemini Ascendant? (Vedic Astrology)
Home : Vedic Astrology: Rahu in 8th house: You are here
In the sign of Capricorn Rahu becomes power hungry as Capricorn is a sign of authority and power. Rahu wants to be in the authoritative position and rule over others especially if Saturn is placed in its own sign of Capricorn in the 8th house.
Since 8th house is the house of transformation Rahu gets obsessed about transforming raw materials into finished products which is nothing but manufacturing or creation of certain goods or products. But this is more so if Saturn (ruler of 8th house and Capricorn where Rahu is placed) is placed in the 6th house in the sign of Scorpio as Scorpio is a sign of transformation and 6th house is the house of daily routines. So your daily routine becomes transformation (creation or manufacturing). If Mars (ruler of Scorpio) is in Aries you could be very active in masses as 11th house represents the masses.
So, Rahu will be obsessed about different things in the 8th house (for a Gemini Ascendant) depending on the location of Saturn (ruler of 8th house). If Venus and Mars are also placed in the 8th house along with Rahu then the person may even get obsessed about sex as 8th house is also of sexual activities. Mars represents sexuality (as originally it rules the 8th house of sexual activities) and Venus is pleasure.
If Rahu, Mars, and Venus are placed in the 8th house and Saturn (lord of 8th house) is placed in the 7th house then it can show difficulty in sex (or very dry sexual life or even loss of sexual life) and it may delay the birth of children if you are looking for children through sex. This is because Saturn is a delayer of things as it is a slow-moving planet and in the 7th house (of relationships) it restricts the true love between the husband and wife as Saturn is a heartless planet. Without true love, you cannot have children easily.
If Rahu is placed in the 8th house and if Saturn (ruler of 8th house) is placed in the sign of Taurus in the 12th house then this Rahu could make the native very creative in arts and painting (artwork in general) especially if Venus (ruler of 12th house where Saturn is placed) is also placed in the 8th house along with Rahu. Saturn is a planet of action and Taurus is a sign of creativity and so Saturn takes the action of doing something artistic when placed in the sign of Taurus. Venus in the sign of Capricorn also makes a person very creative in the 8th house of transformation. When you create art it is nothing but transformation (an 8th house activity).
If Rahu is placed in the 8th house and if Saturn is placed in the 2nd house in the sign of Cancer the native feels insecure when it comes to wealth. So they do a lot of hard work in life to acquire wealth in order to secure themselves. Saturn in the sign of Cancer makes you insecure as Cancer is a sign of security and peace of mind and Saturn restricts that in the sign of Cancer as that is its enemy sign. With this placement, the person could go into the creation or manufacturing of clothing or food business or other luxury items which Venus represents (ruler of 2nd house in the default zodiac). This is a good placement for the family business as the 2nd house represents family and family assets.
If Rahu is placed in the 8th house and Saturn placed in the 1st house in the sign of Gemini the native could be a writer especially if Mercury (ruler of Gemini) is placed in the 3rd house in the sign of Leo. The person would like to transform the world through his writing on topics like politics or children or even fun and entertainment or sports or even stock markets. If Mercury is placed in the sign of Aries in the 11th house the native could be a public speaker and may be known for his motivational speeches. He/she wants to transform the world through their speech.
If Rahu is placed in the 8th house and Saturn is placed in the 11th house in the sign of Aries the person could be very active in the masses such as a journalist. You see those people working for the news agencies to gather information on all the latest incidents happening in the area of operation may have this placement of Saturn. But since Saturn is said to be debilitated in the sign of Aries it could make the person work very hard in order to earn some money. The person may also feel lethargic. These could also be policemen and detectives. If Mars is also placed along with Saturn then Saturn cannot be considered as debilitated.
Again, If Rahu is placed in the 8th house and Saturn is placed in the 9th house in the sign of Aquarius then this is the best placement to have to get a lot of gains in life. I have written more about this placement in the article > 8th lord in 9th house for Gemini Ascendant.
Also, this is a placement where in general Rahu can give a lot of wealth.
If Rahu is placed in the 8th house and if Saturn is placed in the 5th house in the sign of Libra you could be involved in speculative business or marketing and advertising of coal, iron, steel, oil, etc. as 5th house is the house of speculative business. You may also be into the business of designing, dressing, and creation as 5th house is also of creation especially if Venus (ruler of Libra) is placed in the 8th house along with Venus.
You may also be involved in making relationships with higher authorities such as film stars, cricketers, politicians and get their hidden secrets or know about their past life (as 8th house is history). Saturn does the action of making relationships when placed in the sign of Libra as Libra is a sign of business and relationships and brotherhood.
