What is the meaning of Leo sign on the 8th house? (Vedic Astrology)
Leo sign on houses: You are here
Leo is a royal or regal sign and it gives the identity to the native of the birth chart. How you are known in this world that is what Leo represents. For a Capricorn Ascendant, their identity comes from the 8th house as their Leo sign falls on the 8th house. 2nd house is the house of intake of food while the 8th house is the house where Muladhara Charka is located and the function of this chakra is excretion and sexual activities.
When you go to the bathroom in the morning for excretion then that is the activity of the 8th house. That is the reason Capricorn Ascendant people sometimes do a lot of fun in the bathroom or toilet as Leo is also a sign of fun and entertainment. Like they will sing or dance when alone in the bathroom. But they also become romantic in the bathroom as Leo is also a sign of love and romance. So if they are married there happens a lot of love and romance in the bathroom.
If 8th house lord, Sun, is placed in the sign of Taurus in the 5th house then hidden relationships or hidden love and romance (love affairs) could also happen as 8th house is the house of hidden secrets and 5th house is the house of love and romance and Sun is also the significator of love and romance. Moreover, the sign of Taurus, falling on the 5th house, is also a sign of sensual pleasures and sex is also a type of sensual pleasure and this also shows hidden sexual relationships are also possible especially if Venus and Mars are also placed in the 8th house as Mars is a natural significator of sexuality as it rules Scorpio which is a sign of sexual intercourse. Love marriage is also possible if 7th house lord, Moon, is conjuncting 8th lord Sun in the 5th house as 7th house lord represents spouse.
But Leo is also a sign of knowledge (or education) and when the sign of Leo falls on the 8th house it could also mean knowledge of the dark world such as occult science and paranormal. So the knowledge of the dark world comes naturally to the Capricorn Ascendants as the sign of Leo rules their 8th house. If Jupiter and Sun both are placed in the 8th house then they may also be involved in acquiring such knowledge.
Also, 8th house is the house of going to the roots and when you perform things like surgical operations you go to the roots and so surgical doctors can also be seen if the lord of the 8th house, Sun, is placed in the sign of Virgo in the 9th house and if Mars is also placed in the 8th house and ascendant lord Saturn is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 11th house. 11th house is 6th from 6th house and so it is the higher self of 6th house according to Bhavat Bhavam concept and so it is also the house of a higher type of health and healing. Sun is also the giver of life on earth and so Sun is also health (knowledge of health) and Virgo is the Karma (work) of health.
But the 8th house is also the house of sudden ups and downs. In other words, this is the house of uncertainties and when you play sports or do gambling (such as sports betting or stock market trading) there are a lot of uncertainties. Also, Leo is a sign of speculation and so when the sign of Leo falls on the 8th house it could also give the native the identity or image (as Leo represents image or identity) of someone involved in sports or gambling (such as stock trading or sports betting). But again a lot will depend on the position of 8th lord, Sun, and other planets in the birth chart for such professions to actually happen for the native. Combat Sports is usually possible when Sun and Mercury are placed in the sign of Virgo in the 9th house along with Mars and if Saturn is placed in the sign of Gemini in the 6th house of competitions or fights.
Since the 8th house is the house of sudden ups and downs and transformation, if 8th lord, Sun, is placed in the 10th house (in Libra) there could be a lot of ups and downs in the status or profession of the native. Since here Sun is debilitated (Sun in Libra) it could also give a bad image or reputation in the profession. You may have to change your job many a time in life because of the debilitated Sun in the 10th house as 10th house is the house of profession and status. Since Libra is also a sign of relationships and partnerships so your relationships and business partnerships could also suffer because of the debilitated Sun. There could also be a divorce in the marriage. This could happen because of your past life deeds as 8th house is also the house of past life deeds.
If 8th house lord, Sun, is placed in the 11th house (of public or masses) in the sign of Scorpio then you might have seen people who are doing research and investigation in the public such as security guards at different public places such as cinema halls, malls, banks, etc Such people keep an eye on the public for suspicious activities and such Capricorn Ascendant people usually have this placement of Sun in the sign of Scorpio. Also, 8th house (and the sign of Scorpio) is the house of research and investigation and so people like investigative journalists, police officers, and crime investigators are also seen from this placement.
When you look for something that is hidden and unknown then you are activating your 8th house. Also, there are people like hackers and information security specialists and even computer forensic experts and these can also be seen from this placement. In general, people working in the field of IT (information technology) are seen from this placement. But since here Sun is the lord of 8th house which is the house of transformation there could happen a lot of transformation and a lot of risks may be involved with this placement of 8th lord Sun in the 11th house for a Capricorn Ascendant.
If 8th house lord, Sun, is placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 12th house then this is often the placement in the birth chart of people who are doing research and investigation in something like law, philosophy, finances, taxes, theology, ancient texts, nature, environment, science, etc. This placement may also produce a Chartered Accountant or a scientist (health care specialists) or even a computer engineer if other planets in the birth chart are favorable.
If 8th house lord, Sun, is placed in the sign of Capricorn in the 1st house then this placement is usually seen in the birth chart of engineers as the sign of Capricorn represents machines and even a computer is a machine and so people involved in computer engineering and things like machine learning, artificial intelligence, mechanical engineering, etc can also be seen from this placement. Also, musicians and singers can also be seen from this placement especially if Sun is placed in the sign of Capricorn but in the Nakshatra of Dhanistha as this Nakshatra is more about musical instruments. Capricorn is really a sign that represents musical instruments and Sun is fun and entertainment.
If 8th house lord, Sun, is placed in the sign of Aquarius in the 2nd house then this placement could produce a lot of ups and downs in the wealth of the native as here the lord of the 8th house of ups and downs is placed in the 2nd house of wealth and family assets. People doing stock trading or sports betting or other types of gambling usually have this kind of placement. But this could also be the placement for people involved in the field of IT (information technology) such as computer network engineers.
People involved in wealth management such as bankers and fund managers are most commonly seen from this placement. Sun represents wealth and Aquarius is a sign that represents the large networks and since here 2nd house is of wealth and sign of Aquarius is falling on the 2nd house so it becomes wealth networks which means public money as Aquarius is also a sign of the public or the masses. Aquarius is also a sign of rotation so people involved in money or wealth rotation (money transfer) can also be seen from this placement. Money is always rotating in banks and financial institutions and so people working there are seen from this placement. But Aquarius is also a sign that represents a team and so people involved in sports can also be seen from this placement as then you become the leader in the team.
If 8th house lord, Sun, is placed in the sign of Pisces in the 3rd house then with this placement you could lose your father as Pisces is a sign of losses and Sun represents father. Or your father could also be a very spiritual person. People involved in kundalini awakening and spirituality may also have this placement as Pisces is a spiritual sign.
But this is a great placement for musicians and singers especially if Sun is placed in the Nakshatra of Revati in the sign of Pisces as this Nakshatra is a very pure Nakshatra and its a divine Nakshatra and divinity is expressed through music and dance. Dancers are seen from this placement because the sign of Pisces represents feet and you dance with your feet. In general, people involved in spiritual healing are most commonly seen from this placement. See here 99 different ways of spiritual healing and this list will cover everything for this placement.
If 8th house lord, Sun, is placed in the sign of Aries in the 4th house then this placement is often seen in doctors and healers as Aries is a sign of the beginning of something new as Pisces is a sign of the end and the sign of Aries comes after the sign of Pisces. Gynecologist doctors are often seen from this placement especially if Mars is also placed in the 4th house along with Sun and the ascendant lord, Saturn, is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 11th house. This is because Aries is a sign of new life and Gynecologists give birth to new life by operating on a pregnant woman.
But Aries is also a sign of physical activity and Sun represents fun and entertainment and so people involved in sports are most commonly seen from this placement including those involved in athletics, hiking, trekking, and mountaineering.
