What if Mars is in 8th house in Taurus for Libra ascendant? (Vedic Astrology)
This article is also valid for > 7th lord in the 8th house for Libra Ascendant.
For a Libra ascendant, Mars will fall in the sign of Taurus when placed in the 8th house. There are several possibilities with this placement and here are some of them.
1) If the 7th lord Mars is placed in the sign of Taurus in the 8th house then people like makeup artists, beauticians, tattoo artists, and hairdressers are most commonly seen from this placement. But this is more so possible if the 8th lord Venus is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 2nd house. This is because Taurus is a sign that represents the face and it is a sign of beauty, fashion, and designing. Also, the 8th house is the house of transformation (or creation) and makeup artists also transform the face through different kinds of makeup on the face.
This same placement is also good for cooking as Venus represents the food and Venus is placed in the 2nd house in the sign of Scorpio which is also a sign of transformation. In Cooking, you transform raw food into eatable food. We can also say that the 8th house becomes the major house of cooking when the sign of Taurus falls on it and if the 8th lord Venus is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 2nd house of food and finances.
2) This placement is however risky in the sense that if Mars and Saturn both are placed in the 8th house in the sign of Taurus and if the 8th lord Venus is placed in the sign of Capricorn in the 4th house there is a chance of heart troubles such as the stroke (especially if Saturn and Mars or Venus are afflicted in the chart). This is because Venus and Moon are the major planets that represent our heart. Moon is the left heart while Venus represents the central heart. Venus in Capricorn makes the heart very hard (just like stone) as Capricorn is a very practical and hard sign.
You could also become strict with women or girls when Venus is placed in the sign of Capricorn in the 4th house as Capricorn is also a very strict sign and Venus represents the females. Planets in the 8th house often bring some kind of trouble in life as the 8th house is a dusthana house (evil house). The 8th house is also the house of surgeries and so Libra ascendant natives often face heart surgery in their life especially if there are afflictions as I mentioned above.
If you are a female, you should not marry a man who has Venus in Capricorn, otherwise, he could be strict with you (though it is not always the case). Saturn is the major trouble-giving planet as it is natural malefic and Saturn in the sign of Taurus in the 8th house does the maximum damage to the heart if Saturn is afflicted. The best placement for Venus is the sign of Taurus as then it gives the maximum strength to the heart and people with this placement are fearless and very much bold unless Venus is afflicted. If you need a loving & emotional heart then Venus in Cancer is the best placement.
3) People like fashion designers, models, and people who are into the marketing & advertising of luxury items such as gift items, decoration items, greeting cards, toys, fashion clothing, beauty or cosmetic products, food items, etc can also be seen from this placement especially if the 8th lord Venus is placed in the sign of Gemini in the 9th house. Gemini is a major sign of marketing and advertising.
You can also run an e-commerce website or write blogs or do vlogging based on fashion & beauty & modeling with this placement as the 9th house is also the house of publishing and Venus is placed there. Mars becomes a model in the sign of Taurus as Mars is still considered a male planet and the sign of Taurus is a female sign. The spouse of the native could also be a model or a fashion designer with this placement.
News anchors and journalists may also have this same placement as the journalists also publish a lot and the 9th house is also the house of publishing. The 7th lord in the 8th house and the 8th lord in the 9th house could make you a lot of money as this placement is extremely powerful as any given house is always the gain of its previous house. Even people like singers may also have this placement and singers & journalists often make a lot of money.
4) If Mars is placed in the 8th house in the sign of Taurus but if the 8th lord Venus is placed in the sign of Cancer in the 10th house this placement can be seen in the birth chart of people who are working in the food and cloth manufacturing units. You could also work in a manufacturing unit where drinks are prepared and sealed in bottles. This is because the sign of Cancer represents all the liquids and Venus is placed in the sign of Cancer. Also, the 10th house is the house of working with the machines as the 10th house is the house of automation.
Many people work with food processing machines such as dosa making machines, juice maker machines, sugar plants, food choppers, seed processing plants, vegetable slicers, potato peeling machines, flour making machines, poultry feed making machines, food dehydrators, grinders & boilers, etc. So, all those people who are working in the food processing industry using all kinds of food processing machines can also be seen from this placement. Basically, these are the people who are the employees of some manufacturing business. Many people even serve the public on the streets with juice and street food and they may also have this placement.
5) If Mars is placed in the sign of Taurus in the 8th house but if the 8th lord Venus is placed in the sign of Leo in the 11th house this is a great placement for people like singers, musicians, stage performers, dancers, actors, actresses, etc. You should work in the fun & entertainment industry with this placement. It could even be games or casinos. This placement is also good for brand management especially if the 11th lord Sun is placed in the sign of Gemini in the 9th house. This is because Leo is a sign of brands and also it is a sign of being in the limelight (such as through stage performance). You could also become a music teacher with this placement.
You can also try and become famous through youtube videos and that is also going to work as this is a very powerful placement to give you a lot of wealth in life as Venus is placed in the 11th house which is the house of customers and audience and regular income. This is also a good placement for people who are into all kinds of sports as Leo is also a sign of recreational activities and sports is also a recreational activity.
This placement is also good for romantic relationships with many partners as Leo is also a sign of love and romance. Actors and actresses usually have a lot of romantic partners as they work with different actors (or actresses) in different roles as romantic partners. Mars in the 8th house could also give sexual relationships and not just romantic relationships. Mars is the planet of sexuality and so there is a major risk of sexual relationships even before marriage when Mars is placed in the 8th house. That is the reason the 8th house is considered as an evil house. The person becomes sexually very aggressive when Mars is placed in the 8th house unless there is an aspect of Jupiter on Mars. Rapists often have this placement especially if Saturn is also placed in the 8th house along with Mars.
6) If Saturn is placed in the sign of Aries in the 7th house (debilitated Saturn) and then if the 7th lord Mars is placed in the 8th house this could even give restriction to sexual relationships as Saturn is a restrictive planet. When you can’t have sexual relationships then you can’t even have kids. But this is only so if Saturn or Mars is afflicted in the chart and this becomes more so if Venus is also afflicted and debilitated in the sign of Virgo in the 12th house of bedroom life. I don’t reveal afflictions in the free articles here and you need to join my paid tutorials for that.
7) If Mars is placed in the sign of Taurus in the 8th house but if the 8th lord Venus is placed in the sign of Virgo in the 12th house this placement is good for doing nutritional supplements or herbal supplements business. This placement is also good for doing finance-related work such as accounting. If Venus is afflicted this placement could also give a lot of eating disorders as Venus represents our eating appetite and the sign of Virgo represents the intestines in our body. Doctors and nurses also have this placement. Pets doctors may also have this placement.
Also, people who are giving hospitality services in hotels or restaurants may also have this placement. If this is the chart of a male then he could get into a lot of arguments with female partners as Virgo is also a sign of arguments and disputes. This placement is not good for relationships as the 12th house is 6th from the 7th house and so it often creates disputes and divorces in relationships. Anything 6th is disputes and troubles.
This placement is also good for providing your service to some non-profit organizations such as working for an orphanage or an elderly care center. You could also provide food service in some temple or train or an airplane with this placement. This placement is good for making a lot of foreign trips as here the 8th lord is placed in the 12th house of foreign countries or foreign places. Whichever house the 8th lord is placed there is a lot of up and down there and so it becomes up and down to a foreign country or some isolated or spiritual place. If Saturn is also placed along with Venus in the 12th house then this is also good for weight lifting or fitness.
8) If Mars is placed in the sign of Taurus in the 8th house but if the 8th lord Venus is placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 3rd house this placement is also good for creative and artistic work such as making of wooden baskets, decorative furniture, decorative items, flower pots, greeting cards, ivory products, home décor, lamps, rugs and carpets, indoor plants, photo frames, timber décor, party supplies, gift wrappers, crockery and glassware, glowing lanterns, candles, Christmas supplies, beds and mattresses, wallpapers, wall hangings, paper plates, clocks, mirrors, wedding supplies, etc. People with this placement, explore the markets a lot and do a lot of shopping.
9) If Mars is placed in the sign of Taurus in the 8th house but if the 8th lord Venus is placed in the sign of Aquarius in the 5th house this placement is good for things like computer network engineering, software development, website development, app development, development of social networking websites, aircraft's designing, network designing, server design, etc. People working in the field of IT (information technology) may have this placement. This placement could also give multiple romantic relationships as 5th house is also the house of love and romance and Aquarius is a sign of > multiple.
