What if Rahu is placed in the 8th house in the sign of Taurus? (Vedic Astrology)
Home : Vedic Astrology: Rahu in 8th house: You are here
But the thing is though the Rahu is in earth signs (due to aspects) still it is connected with the 4th, 12th, and 8th houses which are ruled by water signs (Cancer, Pisces, and Scorpio) in the default zodiac. This shows the interest could also be towards arts and artwork, designing, painting, singing, modeling, etc. where there is a mixture of earth and water. Rahu in practical or earth signs makes you structured, disciplined and focused in watery or emotional activities of the 4th, 8th and 12th house like painting, arts, creativity, designing, acting, etc. So Rahu could create some very creative people with its placement in the sign of Taurus in the 8th house.
You see many people are engaged in the business of T-shirt printing. The plain cloth first is converted into a wearable t-shirt (by sewing) and then printing or designing is done on the t-shirt to make it look attractive. Designing or printing can be done manually or even by using the t-shirt printing machines. The whole process is nothing but transformation which is an 8th house activity as 8th house is of transformation. Read more here > transformation quality of Scorpio or 8th house. With Rahu in the 8th house, a Libra Ascendant could be involved in such kind of a business or other similar businesses of designing and printing. But this is more so if Venus (lord of 8th house or Taurus) is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 10th house. The 10th house is the karma and skills of the 8th house as it is 3rd from the 8th house.
However, if Rahu is placed in the 8th house and Venus is placed in the 2nd house in the sign of Scorpio the native could also be engaged in hidden sexual relationships or hidden money contracts which could even be money laundering. This is because the 2nd house is 8th from the 7th house of relationships, partnerships, and contracts and anything 8th is hidden and secretive and so the 2nd house is the house of hidden relationships. But this is still only a possibility unless the Nakshatra where Venus is placed in the 2nd house is known.
Again, if Rahu is placed in the 8th house and Venus is placed in the sign of Aquarius in the 5th house the person could be a social activist who might be highly engaged in representing the masses for his some motive related to the 8th house. The motive may be to tell everything about their brand or products such as machines which can somehow help transform the businesses. They may arrange a lot of seminars to accomplish that. If Saturn (lord of Aquarius) is placed in the sign of Gemini the person could also be busy in making a lot of relationships through communication to promote their art or any other creative or manufacturing business. This is because Aquarius is a sign of representing the masses for a certain goal.
If Rahu is placed in the sign of Taurus in the 8th house and if Venus is placed in the sign of Leo in the 11th house > this could be a placement for someone to become a magician (Jadugar) or some other type of artist such as a circus joker as 8th house represents all these things. This is more so possible if Sun (lord of 11th house) or Mars > either one of them or both of them are seated in the 5th house in the sign of Aquarius or the 2nd house in the sign of Scorpio.
Considering Rahu in 8th and Venus and Jupiter in 11th > the person could be a teacher of occult science or some other subjects related to the 8th house (such as history) especially if Sun (lord of 11th house) is placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 3rd house. This is because the 3rd house is 8th from the 8th house and so also represent the things of the 8th house such as occult science and 3rd house is also of communication and so the personality (as Sun is in 3rd house and Sun represents personality) becomes like that of a Guru or teacher.
If Rahu is placed in the 8th house with Venus in the first house (in Libra) and 'Sun and Mercury' in the sign of Virgo in the 12th house and Mars in the sign of Scorpio in the 2nd house and Jupiter in the sign of Sagittarius in the 3rd house the native could go into the field of accounting and auditing such as the CA and income tax officer. Auditing is nothing but a thing of the 8th house where you try to find out (do the research) if everything is according to the law or not. This is what you do as a CA and income tax officer. 8th house is all the frauds or anything not following the law and 9th house is exposing the frauds or correcting that is not according to law.
