What if Rahu is in 8th house for Virgo Ascendant? (Vedic Astrology)
Home : Vedic Astrology: Rahu in 8th house: You are here
One of the qualities of fire signs is fun. You can have fun playing games or by having sex. When you do sex fire (heat) is involved and the fire is associated with fun and so Rahu in the three fire signs could make the native engage in secret fun as 8th, 4th and 12th are all secret houses. Secret fun could be secret sexual activities and even gambling and games. 8th house is the house of risks, emergencies and sudden ups and downs. In gambling also there is a lot of risks involved and there are also sudden ups and downs and so it is an 8th house activity.
Rahu is your obsession in life and Rahu is a taboo breaker. In other words, Rahu doesn't understand the law or dharma or rules and regulations when it is too much obsessed (if the degree of Rahu is high). So Rahu could even have secret sexual affairs in the 8th house in a fire sign like Aries but only a possibility but even could be possible if Mars (lord of Aries and 8th house) and Venus are placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 3rd house. But still, a lot will depend on the Nakshatra where Rahu is placed in the 8th house.
3rd house is actually 8th from the 8th house and so the native could easily perform activities of the 8th house when 8th lord is seated in the 3rd house. You may also be involved into occult practices (such as astrology, numerology, Vaastu, etc) if Mars is placed in the 3rd house and Mercury (the lord of your Ascendant) is placed in the 8th house along with Rahu. When Mercury (your ascendant lord) is placed in the 8th house it shows the purpose of your life is the 8th house as the ascendant lord tells the purpose of life.
Sports is also a part of fun represented by fire signs like Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. Since your Rahu is in the fire signs (with aspects as mentioned before) it could also get you involved into sports especially if Mars is placed in the sign of Capricorn (exalted Mars) in the 5th house. You could be a great sportsman with this placement of Rahu and Mars. Mars is in the sign of Capricorn makes a person very competitive and when Mars is exalted it shows your Muladhara Chakra is very strong as Mars rules the Muladhara Chakra. A well developed Muladhara Chakra makes a person very energetic and enthusiastic and highly dignified.
Considering Rahu in the 8th house (for Virgo Ascendant) if Mars (ruler of 8th house) is placed in the sign of Taurus in the 9th house then you may do a lot of research on your female Guru (professor) or teacher and maybe you are enticed or infatuated by her. This could be possible as Rahu is natural malefic.
With this placement, you may also do a lot of research in Google for online shopping or you may be involved in the online business of luxury items or food or gems and jewelry or even an information website related to women or women related products. You may also be a web designer, web programmer and photoshop expert with this placement. But a lot will depend on the location of Venus but this placement can give a lot of gains due to a reason which I mentioned here > When can Rahu give a lot of wealth?
Also, I saw the birth chart of a person engaged in producing honey and he was also having the same placement of Rahu and Mars as above. This is because when honey is produced it involves the transformation of nectar (found in flowers) into a sweet liquid (by Bees) and whenever there is a transformation this is nothing but the representation of the 8th house and honey is Venus as it is sweet. Anything sweet is Venus.
Again considering Rahu in the 8th house if Mars is placed in the sign of Gemini in the 10th house > it may take you to the field of research in linguistics and also research in mass media as the sign of Gemini represents languages and media. When you through yourself into deep research for things which are unknown it is nothing but an activity of the 8th house. With this placement, you may also be into scientific research in the world of communication and marketing.
Again considering Rahu in the 8th house if Mars is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 11th house > this could make you someone who cook on the streets and serve the public and make money. You could even be a seller of Pani Puri on the streets. When you cook something the transformation happens from raw food to eatable food and such transformation is also the representation of the 8th house. Here you may think Mars is debilitated but it is not because Rahu amplifies the sign and its ruler where it is seated.
With the same placement of Rahu if Mars is placed in the 12th house in the sign of Leo > this could really be a placement for lots of ups and downs in foreign countries for education or sports or even fun and entertainment. There is a lot of ups and downs when you fly in an airplane and 12th house represents the space where the airplanes usually fly and so traveling to foreign places is entirely possible with this placement of Mars and Rahu. You may also be an airforce pilot with this placement. But someone may also be engaged in a lot of bed pleasures with this placement as 12th house is the house of bed pleasures.
Again, if Rahu is in the 8th house in the sign of Aries and if Mars is placed in the sign of Virgo in the 1st house then this could give a lot of ups and downs on the physical body which could mean someone training hard on their bodies such as the people in the army and policemen or even sportsmen or people engaged in fitness and gym. With this placement, there is a lot of risks involved on the physical body. You could get into fights with someone or war during the double transit of malefic planets like Rahu and Saturn. A lot of terrorists can also be seen from this placement.
