What if Mercury is in 8th house in Cancer for Sagittarius ascendant? (Vedic Astrology)
This article is also valid for > 7th lord in the 8th house for Sagittarius ascendant.
Mercury will fall in the sign of Cancer when the 7th lord is placed in the 8th house for a Sagittarius ascendant native. Several predictions could be made with this placement and here are some of them.
1) Mercury in the sign of Cancer in the 8th house often gives nervousness, fear, anxiety, and depression. But this is only so if Mercury is afflicted in the chart. I don’t teach afflictions in free articles here and you need to join my paid tutorials for that. Mercury represents the nervous system and brain in our body. And so, nervousness also has to do with the nervous system or Mercury.
Cancer is a sign of emotions and it represents our heart (natural 4th house in the zodiac) and we feel the fear, anxiety, and nervousness in our heart. Many people are engaged in speculation such as intraday stock trading or they are involved in gambling and they feel nervous and tense as there is always a fear of losing money and this is what Mercury in Cancer in the 8th house could also do.
The 8th house is the major house of risk-taking as it is a very risky and turbulent house. So gambling is seen from the 8th house. If Mercury is your Putrakarka (PK) you may be involved in speculation such as sports betting, stock trading, casinos, commodity trading, currency trading, etc. This is because PK carries the energy of the 5th house of speculation.
As a kid, you could feel nervous and tense while playing video games as there also there is a fear of losing the game. While masturbating there could also be fear and anxiety and nervousness as Mercury is also a planet of mating and masturbating. When there is nervousness there is a risk of early ejaculation in mating. With this placement, it could also give you fear and anxiety when there is darkness or when you are watching ghostly movies. But this nervousness problem is more so if the 8th lord Moon is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 12th house as Scorpio is a very turbulent sign and so it brings a lot of emotional turbulence when Moon is placed in this sign (as Moon is a planet of emotions).
2) Mercury in the sign of Cancer in the 8th house is also a good placement for swimming as the sign of Cancer represents the water and Mercury represents your hands and shoulders and so it becomes doing something in water using your skills of hands which is nothing but swimming. But a Swimming career is more so possible if Mars is placed in the 7th house in the sign of Gemini. But of course, other planets in the birth chart should also confirm that such as Moon should be placed in the sign of Leo in the 9th house of exploration and recreational activities. In Swimming, you explore the water.
3) Mercury in the sign of Cancer in the 8th house is also good for laundry work such as washing clothes and even housekeeping especially if the 8th lord Moon is placed in the sign of Virgo in the 10th house. All kinds of household work can be seen from this placement. Cancer is a sign of water and when you wash clothes or utensils then skills of hands (Mercury) are used and water is also used. Virgo is a sign of cleaning also.
There are many people who are working in drinks, juice, milk, and alcohol factories and they may also have this placement. People who paint walls (painters) are most commonly seen from this placement. People who are into stitching and sewing (such as tailors) can also be seen from this placement. The 8th house is the major house of manufacturing or making or creating something through transformation.
4) If Mercury is placed in Cancer in the 8th house but if the 8th lord Moon is placed in the sign of Libra in the 11th house this placement is good for working in the fashion industry such as the textile, garments, and clothing industries. Also, good for interior & furniture designing, jewelry designing, ceramic and glass designing, embroidery, etc
5) If Mercury is placed in Cancer in the 8th house but if the 8th lord Moon is placed in the sign of Leo in the 9th house this placement is good for singing, playing musical instruments, drawing, painting, marketing of clothing and food business, publishing blogs and vlogs and websites related to food, clothing, real estate, and household products. This is because the 9th house is also the house of publishing and Leo is a sign of increasing name and fame or giving the limelight to something.
This placement is also good for all kinds of sports as Leo is also a sign of games and sports. If Mercury is placed in Ashlesha Nak in the sign of Cancer this placement could also give breathing-related problems such as Asthma and even heart problems.
6) If Mercury is placed in Cancer in the 8th house but if the 8th lord Moon is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 12th house this placement could give a lot of health issues such as nervous breakdown, brain related diseases such as brain cancer, dementia, Alzheimer's disease, epilepsy, mental disorders, stroke and TIA, depression, memory loss, dizziness, vomiting, headache, paralysis, sleep disorders, psychic problems, etc.
Moon in Scorpio could give a lot of health issues but only if Moon is afflicted in the chart. This placement is however good for working in the chemicals, fertilizers, paints, pest control, alcohol, drinks, dyes, pigments, paints, plastics, rubber, and adhesives industries. This placement could also give addictions to drinking alcohol especially if Venus is also placed in the sign of Cancer in the 8th house.
7) If Mercury is placed in Cancer in the 8th house but if the 8th lord Moon is placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 1st house this placement is good for people who are working with plants, trees, gardens, fruits, vegetables, food grains, pulses, cereals, milk, eggs, grains, agricultural products & agricultural lands (such as farmers and gardeners), transportation, travel, etc. This is because the sign of Sagittarius represents all things obtained from plants and animals such as fruits and vegetables, eggs, milk, etc. You might have seen people selling boiled eggs and other street food on the streets and such people may also have this kind of placement in their birth chart.
8) If Mercury is placed in Cancer in the 8th house but if the 8th lord Moon is placed in the sign of Capricorn in the 2nd house this placement is good for people who are working with various agricultural and garden tools in farmhouses for irrigation purposes. This is because Capricorn is a sign that represents all the machinery and tools made of iron and steel as Capricorn is a sign of automation and machines. This placement is also good for people who are working with machinery and tools in all kinds of food, clothing, and beverage processing factories or units. This is also a good placement for working with various tools in the kitchen for cooking. So, people like chefs can also be seen from this placement.
