Why a lot of risk involved in life of a Virgo Ascendant? (Vedic Astrology)
Whichever house the sign of Aries falls in a given birth chart that is where you put a lot of effort or energy into your life as Aries is a sign of putting energy or your efforts. For a Virgo ascendant, the sign of Aries falls on the 8th house and so they put a lot of their energy or efforts in things of the 8th house in their life.
For a Virgo ascendant, if suppose 8th house lord, Mars, is placed in the 1st house in the sign of Virgo then this native would be physically very active (as Mars represents physical activity) in resolving or performing things of the 8th house as 1st house is the house of physical self and Virgo is a sign of difficulties. Now when Mars is placed in the 1st house in the sign of Virgo it shows a lot of difficulties on the physical body or physical self through different physical activities.
That is the reason this placement is seen in the birth chart of people who are police officers, detectives, sportsmen, military people, journalists, terrorists, etc as these people are physically very active and there are a lot of fights, arguments, and competitions involved in their life as Virgo is also a sign of fights, arguments, and competitions and Mars is placed in the 1st house in the sign of Virgo.
Also, Mars rules the 8th house for a Virgo ascendant this also means something. This itself shows that a Virgo ascendant could be putting his energy and efforts in something that is secretive, hidden, risky, involving sudden ups or downs, death, re-birth, emergency, war, research, investigation, going to the roots of a cause, etc as all these things are represented by the 8th house.
Just think of football players. They face a lot of competitions, difficulties, and risks while playing on the national or international level. That is the reason you will find a lot of football players as Virgo ascendants especially if their 8th house lord, Mars, is placed in the 1st house in the sign of Virgo. That is the reason Virgo sign falling on the 1st house is very risky as this sign itself is a sign of difficulties and problems. But the major risk is only when malefics like Saturn, Mars, Rahu, and Ketu are placed in the 1st house for a Virgo ascendant.
If you are doing research and investigation by using your physical body such as > when you are hiding yourself and going to the area of terrorists to find some evidence then you may be physically attacked by the terrorists if they are able to catch hold of you. Also, there are people like investigative journalists who need to reach the spot where some unfortunate incident has occurred or there could be a protest by the public against the government and so there also risk is involved in their life (physical body) in such kind of investigation.
So, when Mars is placed in the 1st house of physical self then only the risk is involved on the physical body but if suppose a Virgo ascendant is doing research and investigation on a computer to acquire some secret information then no risk is involved to the physical body but still doing research and investigation is an activity of the 8th house.
If a Virgo ascendant is doing research and investigation over the internet then mostly you will find his 8th lord, Mars, being placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 3rd house of communication as now he is doing research and investigation through communication such as phone or over the internet and over the internet everything is communication. Here there is no risk on the physical body as Mars is not placed in the 1st house.
The major life-threatening risk comes when the 8th lord, Mars, is placed in the 1st house in the sign of Virgo and if malefic planets like Saturn, Rahu, Ketu, and Sun are placed in the 8th house as any planet (especially Saturn) in the 8th house is risky especially if 8th lord Mars is placed in the 1st house of physical self.
So looking at the position of the 8th lord, Mars, is very important in order to know the profession of the native or if you want to know the risks involved. Also, 8th house is known for occult science such as astrology and if 8th lord, Mars, is placed in the 3rd house in the sign of Scorpio then such people may even communicate or write a lot about occult science as now the energy of Mars is being applied to the 3rd house of writing and communication.
Such people may even write content or make youtube videos related to Vedic astrology or anything that is signified by the 8th house.

Since the 8th house is also unearned wealth such as money coming from insurance then people involved in advertising and marketing of insurance or something related to death or re-birth may also have their 8th lord, Mars, placed in the 3rd house. If the ascendant lord, Mercury, is also placed in the 3rd house then communication or writing related to things of the 8th house becomes the purpose of their life as the ascendant lord tells the purpose of life.
But 8th lord, Mars, when placed in the 3rd house in the sign of Scorpio could also be risky as 3rd house is also the house of travel. But the risk is only when certain malefic planets like Rahu, Ketu, Saturn and Mars in transit simultaneously aspect the ascendant lord Mercury and the 3rd house lord or when malefics are transiting through the 1st house (which represents the physical self). There is always a risk involved whenever in transit some malefic planet is either conjuncting or aspecting the 8th house lord and some other malefic is aspecting or conjuncting the ascendant lord. But both the ascendant lord and the 8th lord should make a connection for the bad event to happen.
But 8th house lord is not always bad but sometimes surgical doctors are also seen when the 8th lord, Mars, is placed in the 4th house of nurturing in the sign of Sagittarius (especially in the Nakshatra of Mula) and 4th lord Jupiter is placed in the 11th house in the sign of Cancer (exalted Jupiter) and ascendant lord Mercury and Saturn is placed in the 3rd house in the sign of Scorpio.
8th house is the house of death and so the 8th lord also represents the death and when the 8th lord is conjuncting the ascendant lord then also there is risk involved of sudden bad events such as an accident or a surgery but only if Mars is also involved in the connection between the 8th lord and the 1st lord. Mars and Saturn are major malefics for surgeries, injuries, and accidents. You should not worry if Mars is not aspecting or conjuncting. But if in transit Mars is aspecting the > conjunction of 8th lord and 1st house lord > then again there is a worry but for that also dasha of at least one planet has to run.
