What if Rahu is in Cancer in 8th house for Sagittarius Ascendant? (Vedic Astrology)
Home : Vedic Astrology: Rahu in Cancer :You are here
There could be a lot of fear and anxiety in the mind as 8th house is a deep hole where it is only darkness. That is the reason things such as caves and other places hidden under the ground are represented by the 8th house. This placement of Rahu could also give fearful dreams when you sleep. You may even see and experience ghostly things. Tantric people or people in general who are involved in occult science usually have this kind of placement of Rahu. But this is not always so.
What Rahu will do in the 8th house in the sign of Cancer will mostly depend on where the lord of the 8th house, Moon, is placed in the birth chart. So let's discuss that.
Possibility 1: If Rahu is placed in the 8th house and if Moon is also placed in the 8th house then we need to look at the placement of Mars as Mars originally rules the 8th house in the default zodiac through the sign of Scorpio. For example, if Mars is also placed in the 8th house along with Rahu and Moon then here Mars is debilitated but it is actually not because of Neech Bhang Raj Yog as Moon, the lord of the 8th house, is seated along with Mars.
But since Mars also controls the 5th house of love and romance and speculative business and 12th house of isolation for a Sagittarius Ascendant so with this placement the native could fall into secret love affairs especially if Venus is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 12th house. The location of Saturn is very important to know to find out what exactly Rahu is going to do in the 8th house in terms of profession. For example, if Saturn is also placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 12th house then the native may go into a profession which is somewhat related to occult science, risks, and emergencies such as a detective, police officer, bomb detection squads and other emergency services. You may also be into criminal defense services or security services as 8th house is all about risks and emergencies and war and research and investigation. This is because Saturn in the sign of Scorpio does the action of research and investigation (as Saturn is action) if the lord of Scorpio, Mars, is placed in the 8th house.
Possibility 2: If Rahu is placed in the 8th house (in Cancer) but if Moon (the lord of 8th house) is placed in the sign of Leo in the 9th house then here 8th house lord is placed in the 9th house. Since the sign of Leo represents fun and entertainment and since sports and games are fun and entertainment here your mind could be busy in doing research or acquiring knowledge related to sports or games. It may be that you are running a website over the internet related to games or sports or it may also be that you are involved in sports betting or gambling.
Since here your mind is in doing research and acquiring knowledge related to fun and entertainment it could also be that you are running a website that sells all kinds of kids products such as toys and games. This is because 9th house is of publishing whether it is publishing of books or publishing something on a website. You may also be a publisher of jokes book or website with this placement as jokes are also fun. Or you may also be running a youtube channel related to fun and entertainment. But you may also be someone who is a news presenter related to sports or even stock markets. But you could also be a teacher (whether online or offline) with this placement of Rahu and Moon as Leo is also a sign of education. You may even run a coaching center or offer courses to students with this placement.
Possibility 3: If Rahu is placed in the 8th house (in Cancer) but if Moon (the lord of 8th house) is placed in the sign of Virgo in the 10th house then here the 8th house lord is placed in the 10th house which is 3 places away. With this placement of Moon, your mind could be in the research and manufacturing of medicines, nutrition and other fitness products. You see those people working all the time in laboratories and doing research on health and healing usually, have this kind of placement. But you could also be a fitness trainer with this placement of Moon.
8th house is sudden ups and downs and in fitness training, you really go through ups and downs when you use the fitness equipment. But you may also be involved in sports competitions especially if Mars, Mercury, and Sun are placed in the 10th house along with Moon.
Possibility 4: If Rahu is placed in the 8th house (in Cancer) but if Moon (the lord of 8th house) is placed in the sign of Libra in the 11th house then here the 8th house lord is placed in the 11th house which is 4 places away. Here the mind is into resolving the disputes or problems of the public as 11th house represents the public.
You see there are many people on this earth who are forced into court cases as they didn't get their rights from their family members such as a spouse or their enemies might have troubled them and there are cases of divorce and disputes related to property or business. People who are into professions (such as a lawyer) to resolve the problems of such people usually have this placement of Moon in the 11th house.
There are also government taxes related issues which the public face and a person like a Chartered Accountant may help them in this and so such placement of Moon could also be found in the birth chart of a Chartered Accountant. People who provide insurance policies to the public may also have this kind of placement. Mental illness doctors and healers may also have this kind of placement. But you could also be in the share market.
Possibility 5: If Rahu is placed in the 8th house (in Cancer) but if Moon (the lord of 8th house) is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 12th house then here the 8th house lord is placed in the 12th house which is 5 places away. With this placement of Moon, there could be a lot of turbulence in the mind unless Mars, the lord of the 12th house, is also seated along with Moon. This placement could get you into sports competitions or exams competitions. In other words, you could be a teacher or even a sportsman but you could also be into occult science such as Astrology, Numerology, Vaastu, Reiki Healing, etc. You could also be someone who keeps an eye on the students who are giving the exams so that they don't cheat. I already mentioned some of the professions related to investigation and emergencies under "Possibility 1". You can go through it as that is also possible here.
Possibility 6: If Rahu is placed in the 8th house (in Cancer) but if Moon (the lord of 8th house) is placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 1st house then here the 8th house lord is placed in the 1st house which is 6 places away. This placement is usually of a businessman who is all the time giving information to his customers about his services or products regarding the rates and features of the products. This is more so possible if Jupiter is placed in the sign of Gemini in the 7th house. Also, you could be someone who is in customer care while doing a job for a company.
Possibility 7: If Rahu is placed in the 8th house (in Cancer) but if Moon (the lord of 8th house) is placed in the sign of Capricorn in the 2nd house then here the 8th house lord is placed in the 2nd house which is 7 places away. This placement you will mostly find in people who are busy in producing or manufacturing something using the machines as the sign of Capricorn represents the machines. They actually work on the machines in different businesses to transform the raw material into a finished product. For example, using the sewing machine to transform a plain cloth into a wearable dress.
Possibility 8: If Rahu is placed in the 8th house (in Cancer) but if Moon (the lord of 8th house) is placed in the sign of Aquarius in the 3rd house then here the 8th house lord is placed in the 3rd house which is 8 places away. Here the mind is always into doing the research on networking such as aerospace engineering and even computer network engineering but also telecom engineering. Also, this is the mind of a web programmer or a software programmer who is busy in writing codes to create software or websites or even growing the network of their website in search engines to get traffic and sales from search in search engines like Google.
Possibility 9: If Rahu is placed in the 8th house (in Cancer) but if Moon (the lord of 8th house) is placed in the sign of Pisces in the 4th house then here the 8th house lord is placed in the 4th house which is 9 places away. With his placement of Moon, the native could be doing a lot of research in spiritual healing such as done by an ayurvedic doctor or a psychic. You could also be a CIA agent doing research on the security of the nation from the enemies. When Moon is in Pisces it could do research from behind the scenes as Pisces is a sign of "behind the scenes" which means doing the research secretly from the public. You could be in any profession where you have to investigate secretly to find the truth and this is what this placement means.
Possibility 10: If Rahu is placed in the 8th house (in Cancer) but if Moon (the lord of 8th house) is placed in the sign of Aries in the 5th house then here the 8th house lord is placed in the 5th house which is 10 places away. With this placement, you could be into the gambling of race cars and even sports gambling. But you could also be a sportsman or a cook with this placement. Also, you could do a lot of research on cooking and food. You may also be into manufacturing or repairing of vehicles or different types of machines. You may also be into research in sports.
