Sign of Gemini on the 8th house. Playing tricks with hands? Scorpio Ascendant. (Vedic Astrology)
For a Scorpio ascendant, Mercury rules the 8th house and the 11th house. Now let us see what results the Mercury will produce when placed in different houses.
The sign of Gemini represents our hands and the 8th house is the house of transformation or change and so people like magicians are quite often seen as Scorpio ascendants as in magic you transform something into something else using certain tricks or magic using your hands. So magic is one of the things that can be seen when the sign of Gemini falls on the 8th house. The 8th house or Scorpio is actually the sign that represents the tricks. This is because tricks are done in a hidden way and the 8th house is also the house of hiding and keeping things secret.
Magicians keep everything secret and the 8th house is also the house of secrets. For example, when you do card tricks you cannot do it without your hands and the sign of Gemini represents our hands. When planets like Rahu and Mars (and Mercury in Scorpio in 1st house) are placed in the 8th house for a Scorpio ascendant then they often become magicians. Rahu represents all unusual things and magic is also something unusual and so Rahu is also an important planet for magic and Rahu in the 8th house or Scorpio can play tricks. The sign of Leo is the major sign of playing as this is a sign of recreational activities and when you play something then that is also a recreational activity.
Now, if Rahu is placed in the sign of Leo and if Sun, lord of Leo, is placed in the sign of Gemini (along with Mars) in the 8th house then also the native could play tricks. Mercury should be in Scorpio in the 1st house also for playing tricks. Pickpocketers also play tricks in order to steal money from the pockets of other people and so pickpocketers can also be seen as Scorpio ascendants. Again, this is more so if Rahu is placed in the 8th house in the sign of Gemini and if the 8th lord Mercury is placed in the sign of Taurus in the 7th house as money is seen from the sign of Taurus but other planets in the birth chart should also support for pickpocketing profession.
Gemini is also a sign that represents all the online and offline documents and the 8th house is the house of transformation. You might have seen many online tools converting documents from one format to another format such as converting JPG files to PDF files or converting JPG to WORD documents etc. The 8th house is also the house of conversion and so when the sign of Gemini falls on the 8th house for a Scorpio ascendant then the native might be involved in jobs that are related to such conversions.
The conversion of something to something else is also like magic which the 8th house represents. When you send documents via email from one email to another email then that is also a transfer and the 8th house is again the house of transfer. When the sign of Taurus falls on the 8th house then the native could transfer money from one account to another account.
People who are doing the job of online customer care do these kinds of jobs (interacting via email) all the time and they could be Scorpio ascendants. If Mars and Mercury are placed in the 8th house in the sign of Gemini then the native may do such kind of document conversion jobs. When Saturn falls in the sign of Gemini in the 8th house you could deal with all the digital documents such as word, excel, notepad, etc as Saturn is a digital planet as it is a planet of automation.
People who are working in the field of IT and developing online tools to transfer files stored on the computer to the storage systems such as Google drive or even cloud servers may also have their Saturn placed in the sign of Gemini in the 8th house.
There are also many people who do the job of converting and writing into different languages. For example, if something is written in the French language, they would convert it and write it into English language and this is also possible when the sign of Gemini falls on the 8th house and this is more so possible if the 8th lord Mercury is placed in the 2nd house in the sign of Sagittarius as Sagittarius is a sign that represents all the languages and Gemini is a sign of writing. But Jupiter must be placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 1st house as Jupiter is the planet of different cultures and languages and Mercury is a planet of writing. If Saturn is placed in the sign of Gemini in the 8th house the native may develop automated tools for translation as Saturn is a planet of automation.
Now the sign of Gemini is also a sign of communication and the 8th house is also the house of security and so anything that is related to communication security is also possible when the sign of Gemini falls on the 8th house. Cybersecurity is a good example of that. Cybersecurity is the practice of defending computers, servers, mobile devices, electronic systems, data, and networks from malicious attacks. This is all part of information technology and information security. Anti-virus software is also a good example of that.
Saturn and Mercury in the 1st house in the sign of Scorpio could be about hacking while Jupiter and Mercury in the same house could be about information security or cybersecurity. Jupiter will protect the network while Saturn may try to breach the network security. Hacking people do secretly and anything secret is seen from the 8th house or the sign of Scorpio. There is both good and bad side to Scorpio ascendant natives as Scorpio is a very secretive sign but mostly people do wrong things in life when they do something secretly by hiding themselves.
All the illegal businesses are run secretly only. Sanjay Dutt, the great Indian film actor, is a Scorpio ascendant and he was jailed for secretly keeping weapons in his home. So, you need to be careful with Scorpio ascendant natives as they have the energy of the 8th house very strong in them and the 8th house is a dusthana (evil) house.
Gemini is also a sign of marketing and the 8th house is also the house of research and investigation and so people involved in market research or marketing research may also be Scorpio ascendants. The 8th house is also the house of risk-taking and Gemini is a sign of marketing and advertising and so the Scorpio ascendant natives could take a lot of risks in marketing & advertising and they may even lose money especially if the 8th lord Mercury is placed in the sign of Pisces in the 5th house as Pisces is a sign of losses & expenses but Jupiter, ruler of Pisces, has to be afflicted in the chart for losses to come. I don’t teach afflictions in free articles here and you need to join my paid tutorials for that. Just click on the contact me link above if you want to join my paid tutorials. 5th house is also the house of increasing name and fame (promotion) as it is the house of the Sun in the default zodiac and the Sun is a planet of name & fame.
As I mentioned earlier, the 8th house is also the house of risks and emergency and Gemini is a sign that represents our hands and so people doing all kinds of risky jobs with their hands may also be Scorpio ascendants. For example, fire & electricity is also a risk (as it can harm us) and many people do welding work with their hands in the iron and steel industries these people (usually engineers) could also be Scorpio ascendents with Sun and Saturn placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 1st house and the 1st house lord Mars placed in the sign of Gemini in the 8th house.
Sun is the planet of light, heat, and fire and so Sun & Mercury in the sign of Scorpio can certainly make the native work with the fire and melting and even boilers. Melting helps in conversion or transformation and the 8th house is also the house of conversion & transformation. People like firefighters may also be Scorpio ascendants as they also take a lot of risks.
When the 8th lord Mercury is placed in the sign of Capricorn in the 3rd house then these people usually work with their hands and they operate machines with their hands as Capricorn is a sign of machinery and tools (and automation) and 3rd house is also the house which represents our skills of hands. They also work with various industrial tools as all the tools made of iron & steel are represented by the sign of Capricorn or Saturn. Now, what kind of machine they will operate with their hands will depend on the location of the 3rd lord Saturn in the birth chart. For example, if the 3rd house lord Saturn is placed in the sign of Taurus in the 7th house, they may operate on a food machine as Taurus is a sign that represents the food. The person could also be a mechanic or an engineer with this placement of Mercury in the 3rd house for Scorpio ascendant.
The 8th house is also the house of ups and downs (turbulence) and Gemini is a sign that represents our skills of hands and there are many sports where the skills of hands are required. For example, Javelin throw is a track and field event where the skills of hands are required and when the Javelin (a tool), a spear of about 2.5 m, is thrown in the air there is a lot of ups & downs (turbulence) in the hands and such sport also makes sense for a Scorpio ascendant especially if the 8th lord Mercury is placed in the sign of Capricorn in the 3rd house and Saturn, lord of 3rd house, is placed in the sign of Pisces in the 5th house of recreational activities.
The sign of Pisces is akash or ether and the Javelin goes into the ether or air when it is thrown. There are other such sports also where the skills of hands are required and that is the reason you could see a lot of Scorpio ascendants as sportsmen also and usually those sports where the skills of hands are required. Even archery requires the skills of hands. Mercury in the 3rd house (irrespective of the sign on the 3rd house) is always good for > working with hands.
People like Carpenters could also be seen as Scorpio ascendants if the 8th lord Mercury is placed in the sign of Capricorn in the 3rd house and if Saturn, ruler of 3rd house, is placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 2nd house as Sagittarius is a sign that represents all things made of wood as Sagittarius is a sign that represents the trees and we obtain wood from trees only. Carpenters also work with wood and so the sign of Sagittarius is important for carpenters and they work with tools made of iron and steel and all tools made of iron & steel are represented by the sign of Capricorn.
When Mercury is placed in the sign of Capricorn in the 3rd house it means working with hands using some iron & steel made tools and even it could be a sports tool or a machine handle. People like blacksmiths and cobblers may also have this same placement of Mercury in the 3rd house in Capricorn. When you make an old shoe looks new by polishing (using your skills of hands) it then you are transforming it and the 8th house is also the house of transformation.
The 8th house is also the house of operations and surgeries and Gemini is a sign that represents our skills of hands and so when we use our hands to do surgeries and operations then also the sign of Gemini could fall on the 8th house and that is the reason many Scorpio ascendants you will find as surgical doctors. The 8th house is actually the house of going to the roots of something and when you do a surgery you need to go to the roots of the body.
When you mimicry someone then also you transform or change and so people like mimicry artists could also be Scorpio ascendants especially if the 8th lord Mercury is placed in the sign of Aquarius in the 4th house as Mimicry artists often perform in front of the public and Aquarius is a sign that represents the public.
