How different house lords will behave in 8th house (Vedic Astrology)?



Also, read > 8th lord in different houses in Vedic Astrology

Different planets will behave differently when placed in the 8th house and here are the possibilities.

1) 2nd lord in the 8th house: If the 2nd house lord is placed in the 8th house then it could bring a lot of turbulence in the wealth or financial assets or family assets of the native. This is because the 8th house is the house of turbulence. For example, many people risk their money in gambling such as sports betting or currency trading or stock marketing trading, or even commodity trading and so it brings a lot of turbulence (up & down) in their wealth as these are risky investments.

Many people even risk their home and borrow money by pledging their home or pledging their other financial assets (such as jewelry) and that sort of thing is also possible with this placement as 8th house is the house of risks and so here you take risks with your family assets. If the 8th lord is placed in the 12th house of loss then losses are also likely from this pledging.

But certainly, your wealth could be at risk when the 2nd lord is placed in the 8th house of risks but this will happen during the 2nd house lord dasa or anterdasa only. If Mars is debilitated in the chart (placed in the sign of Cancer) then also pledging of the home is likely as Mars is the natural significator of land and property and here Mars is debilitated. If the 2nd lord is placed in the 8th house then your wealth could fluctuate a lot as the 8th house is the house of fluctuations.

2) 3rd lord in the 8th house: If the 3rd house lord is placed in the 8th house then this is not a good placement as this could bring risk in the travel as the 3rd house is the house of travel. I saw a chart for a Taurus ascendant native and his 3rd lord Moon was placed in the 8th house in the sign of Sagittarius and his Mars was placed in the 3rd house in the sign of Cancer and he met with an accident during Mars period and Moon sub-period.

When the 3rd lord is placed in the 8th house then it indicates a lot of turbulence in travel. For example, taxi drivers or auto-rickshaw drivers, or scooter drivers always face turbulence on the road when they travel all the time and this is what it means when the 3rd lord is placed in the 8th house. All the traffic you see on the road is nothing but turbulence and you need to deal with it while traveling.

But the 3rd house is also the house of communication and so there could also be a lot of turbulence in your communication. Sports commentators are good examples of that as in sports there is nothing but turbulence or uncertainty and so the sports commentary becomes also turbulent. Gambling or sports betting (such as horse racing) commentators may also have this placement.

Many people make youtube videos on different kinds of games and give commentary on those games and such people may also have this placement as in games also there is a lot of up & down (turbulence). But the 3rd house is also the house of trading and so you may also take a risk in trading when the 3rd lord is placed in the 8th house.

Also, there are many people who risk their money in digital marketing (such as Google Adwords) in order to advertise their business products or digital products and such people may also have this placement as 3rd house is also the house of marketing and advertising. People who speak about occult science and paranormal and dead bodies (cremation) may also have this placement as the 8th house is also the house of occult and mysticism and cremation.

Also, the 8th house is the house of going to the roots of something and the 3rd house is the house of communication and so communication engineers may also have this placement as engineers go to the roots of machines to fix them.

3) 4th lord in the 8th house: If the 4th lord is placed in the 8th house then it will bring a lot of change or turbulence in the conveniences of life such as you may need to change your home a lot due to change in job or otherwise. 4th house is the house of Moon and Moon is a planet of stability and when the 4th lord goes into the 8th house there might not be any stability in life. Such people often speculate in the real estate business and so it brings a lot of turbulence in their business.

This placement again is not good for vehicle driving as the driving could be turbulent for you as 8th house is the house of turbulence and 4th house is the house of comforts (or shelters) and a vehicle is also comfort or a shelter in travel. If Mars or Rahu is placed in the 4th house then some kind of accident is also likely.

The 4th house is also the house of shelters and so with this placement of the 4th lord in the 8th house, it could bring a lot of change of office or shop in your business. You keep changing your shelter or vehicle with this placement. This placement could also bring a lot of fluctuation if you are into either vehicle business or containers business or construction business as all these are represented by the 4th house.

When you change vehicles during travel throughout the day then also this placement can be seen as the 8th house is the house of change and a vehicle is a shelter in travel represented by the 4th house. For example, many people do a lot of up and down in Metro trains and they can have this placement. Many people are into amusement park riding and they may also have this placement as rides in amusement parks are very much turbulent and rides are also shelters in travel as when the ride is moving than in a way you are traveling.

Many people who jump from airplanes, helicopters, and mountains using a parachute (such as bungee jumping or paragliding) may also have this placement as a parachute is also a shelter in travel (air travel) and also there is a lot of turbulence and risk when you take a jump and 8th house is the house of risks and turbulence. 8th house is also the house of going to the roots of something such as engineering and so automobile engineers and home appliances engineers or repairers may also have this placement as 4th house represents the vehicle or automobile industry and also home appliances are seen from the 4th house. People who are into speculative business may also have this placement as the 8th house is also the house of speculation or taking risks.

4) 5th lord in the 8th house: If the 5th lord is placed in the 8th house then this is a very risky placement as it may make you take risks in gambling, sports betting, and stock trading as the 5th house is the house of recreational activities and gambling or stock trading or currency trading are also recreational activities as you play with money and playing is nothing but a recreational activity.

Now whether you will win or lose that will depend on whether the 5th lord is placed in a friendly or malefic Nakshatra (or falls under Kubera or Yama) in the 8th house. I don’t reveal this info in free articles and if you will take my paid tutorials as mentioned in the > contact me < page above then I will reveal all the Vedic astrology secrets to you and then you will be able to know whether stock trading or gambling will take away your wealth or give wealth to you.

There are a lot of recreational activities involving risks such as scuba diving, skydiving, bungee jumping, parachute jumping, wave surfing, bull riding, base jumping, creeking, etc and all these can be seen from this placement of 5th lord in the 8th house as 8th house is the house of risks and turbulence and all these recreational activities also involve risk and turbulence. Now many people could even get obsessed about playing games with this placement as games are also recreational activities and when you play war games (or any other types of games including dreadful games) then there is also a lot of turbulence.

Many people do risky stunts in movies or television serials and stunts are also recreational activities and so these kinds of people may also have this placement. Many people have the hobby of playing with dreadful animals and so these people can also have this placement as 8th house is a dreadful house and so all the dreadful or dangerous things are seen from the 8th house. People may play dreadful roles in movies or TV shows if the 5th lord is placed in the 8th house.

Killing is involved in hunting and the 8th house is also the house of killing and so hunters can also be seen from this placement as hunting is also a recreational activity represented by the 5th house and here the 5th lord is placed in the 8th house. But remember dasa or anterdasa of the 5th lord should run in order to see all these events in your life. Since the 5th house represents the 1st child so your 1st child might also be interested in all that I mentioned above.

Plz, note: Some people think that the 8th house planets could give death or injuries but this is more so possible if the ascendant lord is placed in the 8th house as the ascendant represents the physical self. But the ascendant lord could be afflicted in any given house and in that case also injuries are possible. How the ascendant gets afflicted I only reveal in my paid tutorials. You can click on the > contact me < link above to know more about my paid tutorials.

But if the ascendant lord is placed either in the 6th house or the 8th house and then if the 5th lord is placed in the 8th house then there is a major risk of injuries (or surgeries) and sudden accidents in life as both these are malefic houses. For women childbirth through surgery is also possible with this placement. Also, loss from gambling is more so possible if the 2nd house lord is either placed in the 12th house (of losses) or giving aspect to the 12th house along with the 5th lord being placed in the 8th house.

The 5th house is also the house of practicing mantras and worshipping God and acquiring knowledge of the ancient texts such as the Bible, Quran, Gita, etc and with this placement of the 5th lord in the 8th house the native could also study occult science and paranormal. This placement could also bring a lot of turbulence in love and romance and this could result in multiple relationships as the 8th house is the house of change (transformation) and the 5th house is the house of love and romance but this is more so possible if Venus is involved. Here the native could change partner in love and romance.

5) 6th lord in the 8th house: If the 6th lord is placed in the 8th house then this is a difficult placement especially if the ascendant lord is also placed in the 6th house as then this placement could give diseases and surgeries or operations or injuries through sports and vehicle accidents. This is because the 6th house is the house of difficulties or diseases and the 8th house is the house of turbulence which means diseases are turning into operations or surgeries as the 8th house is the house of going to the roots and when you do the surgery you go to the roots of the body.

The 6th house is a practical house as in the default zodiac 6th house is ruled by Mercury which is a practical or technical planet of work. So, people like doctors who perform surgeries may also have this placement. Also, there are people who are engaged in the difficult work of repairing and engineering and writing codes in the field of IT and such people can also be seen from this placement as all these are technical work where you go to the roots and 6th house is the house of technical work and 8th house is the house of going to the roots. When you make websites or software then coding needs to be done and coding is nothing but going to the roots represented by the 8th house.

Also, cleaning work is seen from the 6th house as Virgo is a sign of dirt and so people like toilet cleaners and bathroom cleaners or garbage cleaners on the road may also have this placement as 8th house is also the house of underground (and recycling or transformation) and so people involved in all kinds of underground work may also have this placement. Digging is another thing that is seen from the 8th house and so people doing the job of digging using different tools may also have this placement. Drilling work is also seen from the 8th house and so people doing drilling and extracting work in mines may also have this placement.

If Mercury (Gemini) is involved then writing about the occult and paranormal may also be possible. This placement, however, is more about practical work than recreational activities. Firefighters may also have this placement as there is a lot of turbulence in fire fighting and the 8th house represents the turbulence. People working on construction sites may also have this placement especially if Saturn is involved as a lot of labor work of digging and drilling is done at construction sites and all such difficult works are seen from the 6th house. The 6th house is really the house of difficult work as Virgo is a very difficult sign and Virgo is the ruler of the 6th house in the default zodiac. But the 6th house is also the house of fights and disputes and so people like boxers and fighters may also have this placement and they can be badly hurt with this placement.

6) 7th lord in the 8th house: If the 7th house lord is placed in the 8th house then it could bring a lot of turbulence in the married life or relationships as the 7th house is the house of relationships, partnerships, and contracts and the 8th house is the house of turbulence. If the 7th lord is placed in the 8th house and if the 8th lord is placed in the 7th house then there could be multiple relationships as the 8th house is the house of change and so here it becomes a change of partners.

With this placement of the 7th lord in the 8th house the spouse of the native could be involved in occult science or paranormal or magic as the 7th lord represents the spouse. The spouse of the native might have psychic problems with this placement as the 8th house is also the house of the subtle world where the dead spirit exists and all the psychic problems are caused when these dead spirits enter the swadisthana chakra or muladhara chakra represents by the 7th house and the 8th house respectively.

The native himself or herself might have psychic problems with this placement. People possessed with dead spirits or having psychic problems behave abnormal or in a different way. There is something unusual about them. But this is more so possible if the ascendant lord is either conjunct the 8th lord or placed in the 8th house. When the 7th lord is placed in the 8th house then swadisthana chakra could be afflicted. If the 7th lord Sun is placed in the 8th house then there could be an ego problem and eye-related problems may also come.

When the 7th lord is placed in the 8th house then such natives may spy on their spouse as 8th house is also the house of research and investigation. They may go to different astrologers to know about their spouses. People who are into research and investigation such as crime investigation or homicide investigation or theft investigation or cybercrime investigation etc may also have this placement as 8th house is also the house of research and investigation.

People like hackers and programmers and information security specialists may also have this placement. People like journalists and lawyers (including occult science and paranormal teachers) may also have this placement as they also do a lot of research and investigation to resolve a case and resolving is seen by the sign of Libra or the 7th house. Cooks may also have this placement as the 8th house is also the house of melting and melting is involved in cooking.

7) 9th lord in the 8th house: If the 9th lord is placed in the 8th house then here the luck will not be good unless Jupiter is placed in the 9th house. The 9th house is the house of luck and the 8th house is the 12th from the 9th house and so it means loss of luck and there is a possibility of losing money with this placement especially if the native is engaged in some kind of gambling such as stock trading or sports betting. Jupiter is considered extremely auspicious in the 9th house and it often gives inheritance from the father. But a native can lose his father’s money also with this placement especially if the 8th house or 9th house falls under DZ.

This placement can also give psychic problems to the father of the native or his/her Guru. He/She may have some guru with psychic powers or involved in tantra & mantra and occult or paranormal. Some of the natives may even lose their father or Guru early in life with this placement of the 9th lord in the 8th house but this is not always so. This is because the 8th house is the house of past life deeds and if past life deeds are not good then it may give trouble to the father with this placement.

Since the 8th house is the house of turbulence such as accidents and injuries then such kind of things are also possible for the father with this placement. The native himself might be involved in occult science, magic, and paranormal with this placement. The native could also deal with cremation or dead bodies with this placement. Research in Mummies is also possible. Detectives and investigators are most commonly seen from this placement.

People doing research on history or historical things may also have this placement. People giving news and information on hidden and secretive things such as ghosts and haunted houses etc can also be seen from this placement. Such natives often make long distances journeys for hidden and secretive information so that they can make this information as news in the media. Journalists and media reports are most commonly seen from this placement as they are also into research and investigation. People making documentary films on hidden caves and hidden treasures and buried historical monuments & temples may also have this placement.

8) 10th lord in the 8th house: If the 10th house lord is placed in the 8th house then it could bring a lot of turbulence in the professional status of the native and this is more so possible if Ketu is placed in the 10th house. Since 8th house is the house of change or transformation so it means there could be change or transformation in the professional status such as sometimes promoted and then demoted or shifted to some other company or losing the job and getting it again and this is what the turbulence is. But this is not always so and it will also depend on the placement of other planets in the birth chart.
