What if Aries sign falls on the 8th house for Virgo Ascendant? (Vedic Astrology)
Go Back to all Aries sign Articles
Aries is a sign of putting a lot of energy and effort into something and when the sign of Aries falls on the 8th house it means exerting a lot in things of the 8th house. When we try to find the profession of a native looking at the sign of Aries is most important as whatever work we do we put a lot of energy and effort into it.
Now the 8th house is the house of going to the roots of something. For example, if some murder has occurred then someone like police needs to find out how it all happened and who was the culprit. In other words, they need to investigate and the kind of work like research and investigation is represented by the 8th house. So a Virgo ascendant is more into this kind of work and they put a lot of energy and effort into these kinds of work.
Also, Virgo, the sign on the ascendant, is a sign of difficulties and problems and so they are bound to do work where there is involved a lot of problems and difficulties as the ascendant tells the purpose of life. There are different types of research and investigations, such as many people are involved into crime investigation or they are a reporter for some news agency, and so they are involved in a type of work where there is a lot of difficulties involved and that is the reason a Virgo ascendant is supposed to do it as their ascendant itself is about problems and difficulties and so they have to deal with difficulties and problems only in their life.
Just see the birth chart of a Leo ascendant and you will find their sign of Aries falls on the 9th house of law and higher education and rituals and so they put a lot of their energy or efforts in acquiring higher knowledge, or studying law, or performing a lot of religious activities, or getting themselves involved in fun and entertainment (as their sign of Sagittarius falls on the 5th house of fun and entertainment and Aries sign falls on their 9th house) and this makes sense because their ascendant is Leo or Sun and Sun is about knowledge, education, law (as Sun is king and a king has to implement law), and fun and entertainment. In other words, the sign of Aries falling on a given house depends a lot on the sign of the ascendant and you can know this in more details in my other articles about the sign of Aries on different houses.
Now coming back to Virgo ascendant, their default 8th house sign, Scorpio, is placed in the 3rd house of communication and media and so these natives also work as hackers, coders or programmers over the internet (as the internet is also part of communication) where they try to go the roots of things which is what the sign of Scorpio or 8th house is all about and that is where Virgo ascendant natives put their efforts into as said before. Their ascendant lord is Mercury and Mercury also represents our brain and so they may also be involved in a lot of brainwork.
But 8th house is also the house of sudden ups and downs and if 8th lord, Mars, or Saturn is placed in the sign of Virgo in the 1st house then they may also be involved in a type of work where they may need to move their body up and down a lot such as sports and athletics and so their profession or work could be related to sports and there are many other types of work where up and down on the physical body is involved such as luggage pickers (Coolie) on railway stations or even soldiers. If Saturn is placed in the 1st house then the work like that of a Coolie is also possible or any other type of work where hard work on the physical body is involved. So whatever work a Virgo ascendant native will do, the role of 8th house will come into effect as the sign of Aries falls on their 8th house.
Also, 8th house is the house where you work underground as 8th house represents all the underground work and so there are many Virgo ascendant natives who are working in the construction of tunnels, ditches, sewer lines, mines, wells, etc and this makes sense as the sign of Aries falls on their 8th house. If Saturn is placed in the sign of Aries in the 8th house (debilitated Saturn) then generally people do such kinds of underground jobs. These are the people who really do all the difficult work as their ascendant(Virgo) is all about difficulties and problems. You won't find Leo ascendant doing such work as their Aries sign doesn't fall on the 8th house.
8th house is the house of digging deep to find the truth and suppose 8th lord, Mars, is placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 4th house then the job of the native could also be to dig deep in the field of law or even nature and environment and then that is where they put their energy or efforts. This is because the sign of Sagittarius represents law and also represents things related to environment, nature, and science. So the native could also be a scientist with this placement especially if other planets in the birth chart are supportive.
If suppose, 8th lord, Mars, is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 3rd house then the native could do research and investigation in communication and since everything over the internet is also communication they could be going to the roots in communication such as telecom engineering or internet frauds or hacking or working with fraudulent calls or emails, programming, information security, etc as Scorpio or 8th house is also about doing all the illegal things as Scorpio is also a sign of frauds. Rahu in Scorpio in 3rd house could do frauds while Ketu in Scorpio or 8th house will try to prevent hacking by securing the information systems.
If suppose, 8th lord, Mars, is placed in the sign of Capricorn in the 5th house then the native could be an engineer (or even sportsman) as now he is going to the roots of machines and putting energy or efforts there as the sign of Capricorn represents machines. But this is just a possibility unless the placement of other planets in the birth chart is known.
If suppose 8th lord, Mars, is placed in the sign of Gemini in the 10th house then the 10th house again represents machines and the sign of Gemini represents communication or travel and so you could go to the roots of communication devices (telecom engineering) or even travel machines such as vehicles (Vehicle engineering). But you could also work in the field of IT as Gemini is a major sign representing the field of IT especially if this sign falls on Ardra Nakshatra.
