What if Rahu is in 8th house for a Leo Ascendant? (Vedic Astrology)
Home : Vedic Astrology: Rahu in 8th house: You are here
When Rahu is placed in the sign of Pisces in the 8th house it shows you are obsessed about diving deep into the spiritual or mystical world. When Rahu is placed in the 8th house it also has aspects on the 4th and 12th house and all these 3 houses are mysterious houses where your materialistic desires are completely lost.
You want to experience something new which is out of this physical world such as scuba diving, becoming piolet to fly airplanes, diving deep into the sea as marine biologist, doing research on occult science, experiencing places like Himalayas (hiking and trekking) and other isolated and secret places, going into deep meditation, going into the outer space, etc.
When you fly an airplane in the sky or dive deep into the sea or visit the places like the Himalayas that is where the real spirituality lies and so those are also represented by the sign of Pisces. The awakening of Kundalini power and opening of the seven chakras in the body is also a way to experience divinity through meditation and that is what you want to do with Rahu in the sign of Pisces in the 8th house as the sign of pisces is also of other dimensions and deeper meditation takes you to the other dimensions.
Even if you are not interested in meditation still you will be interested in something that could take you away from this physical world. It could also make you a research scientist as Pisces is a sign of intuition and research is not possible without having that intuition power. Also, 8th house is of research and sudden ups and downs. When you fly an airplane there is a lot of sudden ups and downs and that is the reason Rahu could make you a piolet in the 8th house in the sign of Pisces. But needs the support from other planets in the birth chart too.
If Jupiter is placed in the sign of Aquarius in the 7th house it could even make you a great scientist or someone who is doing a lot of research in things of the 8th house. You see my own Jupiter is placed in the sign of Aquarius in the 7th house and I am doing a lot of research in Vedic Astrology and presenting it to you. Also, I did web programming, web design, and app development in the past and these are also part of the 8th house. But my Rahu is not in Pisces but it is in the sign of Sagittarius in the 5th house. That is the reason I could not become a scientist as for that Rahu needs to be in the sign of Pisces in the 8th house as 8th house is the house of research and not the 5th house. 5th house is only the house of acquiring knowledge through different sources.
Rahu in the sign of Aquarius is actually better than in the sign of Pisces as then it gives you a lot of reasoning power. Then you need logical reasoning for everything and you will have to engage yourself in the original research in order to find the reason for everything. The sign of Aquarius is actually the higher self of the sign of Pisces as it is 12th from 12th and so Jupiter does better in the sign of Aquarius than the sign of Pisces when it comes to original research. If you just need to memorize things then Jupiter in the sign of Pisces is better.
Rahu in Pisces (especially in Uttara Bhadrapada Nakshatra) can even make you a vehicle driver especially if Jupiter and Mars are placed in the 9th house of long-distance travel. This is because the sign of Pisces is a sign of far off places and so you get obsessed about distant traveling. 8th house is 6th from the 3rd house of travel and so 8th house also represents the travel and transportation services and there are also lots of ups and downs in these professions which 8th house represents.
if Saturn is debilitated in the 9th house in the sign of Aries the person could even run away from home if Rahu is placed in the sign of Pisces. This is because the sign of Pisces, as said before, is a sign of far off and isolated places and so Rahu wants to give away the material life and wants to go far away from home to become a monk. So here Rahu could even be negative if Saturn is debilitated. So Rahu can become both negative and positive in the sign of Pisces. A lot will depend on the placement of other planets in the birth chart. There are also many mentally retarded people who have their Rahu in the sign of Pisces because they have lost their senses. So, here is another negative side of Rahu in Pisces.
But Pisces is also a sign of "behind the scenes". When you sit on a computer or a mobile phone and get busy over the internet your Rahu gets activated in the sign of Pisces. That is the reason many people who are running online websites and growing their business or services network over the internet to different countries (via their websites) may also have their Rahu in the sign of Pisces in the 8th house. In general, you may also be somehow involved in mass media with this placement of Rahu as the sign of Pisces also represents the mass media.
