What if Rahu is in 8th house for Aries Ascendant? (Vedic Astrology)
Home : Vedic Astrology: Rahu in 8th house: You are here
Rahu, in general, is not considered good in the sign of Scorpio as it is debilitated here. Rahu is actually more bad in the Jyestha Nakshatra than Anuradha and Visakha. Some people with Rahu in the sign of Scorpio lives in an illusion because Scorpio is a very dark, secretive and chaotic sign. You see there are many people on this earth who are possessed by Bhoots (ghosts), dead spirits and other demonic entities. They don't have any control over their body and they are forced to do what the ghost tells them to do. So, they live in a world where they don't know about themselves and are living in an illusion as Rahu is an illusion. Such people usually have their Rahu in Scorpio in 8th house (especially Jyestha Nakshatra).
Some people are possessed by Bhoots (ghosts) or dead spirits but sometimes they don't know about this. But internally they know there is something inside them which is unusual. If the severity of possession is more then the Bhoots can even make the people dance and jump and do very unusual actions in their body which are visible to everyone.
But in some cases where there is a possession of dead spirits (not ghosts or demons) the problem is only internal and the person suffering can only understand it. People don't find any solution to such problems via doctors or other types of healers and this makes them crazy. This even makes them take drugs and alcohol when no one is there to understand their problem and so not supportive at all to them. These are called psychological problems and there is no solution to such kind of problems in the real world. But this is not so with everyone having Rahu in the sign of Scorpio in the 8th house.
There are however good psychics who have the ability to remove the Bhoots of people from their body and such people also mostly have their Rahu in the sign of Scorpio in the 8th house. Dr. S S Bhadauria, a psychic, is a great example of that. He is able to remove any type of evil spirit from a person who is possessed. In general, people involved in the occult science have this placement of Rahu as 8th house represents the occult science.
There are also people who work in the mines and there are also many engaged in the cleaning of sewer lines and those people may also have their Rahu in Scorpio in the 8th house as the 8th house represents all things underground whether mining or sewer lines or drain lines. When Saturn is debilitated in the birth chart and Mars placed in the sign of Scorpio along with Rahu in the 8th house then a person is forced to do such kind of jobs. People involved in the extraction of oil and minerals from the earth may also have this placement of Rahu. When you dig deep it is nothing but Scorpio. When you dig deep to find the truth (investigation and research) this is also a Scorpio activity.
If Mars and Rahu are placed in the 8th house in the sign of Scorpio and if Venus and Saturn are placed in the 7th house in the sign of Libra then the native could be involved in the sex industry and also may have illegitimate sexual relationships as all hidden activities (such as having sex with your partner) are represented by the 8th house and the sign of Scorpio. But this is more so with Anuradha Nakshatra but even with Jyestha also this is possible.
However, Scorpio is also a sign of war and death and rebirth. So someone can even work in a mortuary with this placement of Rahu. Many cops and people in the military and even the terrorists may also have their Rahu in the 8th house as the sign of Scorpio represents war and death. This is more so possible with the Jyestha Nakshatra. You should better understand the 8th house in order to know why it could be so.
Also, there are people who are engaged in all the different kinds of frauds to make money and such people may also have this same placement of Rahu as frauds are also the part of the 8th house. Frauds are done in the 8th house and exposed in the 9th house of law and truthfulness.
There are also journalists and other such people who go out to find the hidden secrets of all the unknown and mysterious places and collect information and then publish it in the media such as through youtube videos and websites and also through television. Such people may also have their Rahu in the 8th house.
Scorpio is also a depressive sign and that is the reason Moon is considered debilitated in the sign of Scorpio. When Rahu is in the Anuradha Nakshatra you get obsessed about making friends and relationships with just anyone you like and you don't know whether those relationships and friendships are right for you or not and then later you suffer and go into depression when relationships break.
People who are involved in the manufacturing of chemicals such as mosquito repellents etc may also have their Rahu in the sign of Scorpio in the 8th house. Mosquitoes are bloodsuckers and so they represent the sign of Scorpio. The whole chemical industry is nothing but the representation of the 8th house. The subjects like history and chemistry are also the 8th house things and you may be obsessed about these subjects too.
