Why there is risk to your wealth when 8th lord in 2nd house? (Vedic Astrology)
But this is not so that 8th lord in 2nd house will bring loss only. However, if the 12th house lord is also placed in the 2nd house then certainly there would be a loss as 12th house is the house of losses and its lord is placed in the 2nd house of wealth which means loss of wealth whether it is money or financial assets. But, along with 8th lord in 2nd house, if 2nd lord is placed in the 11th house and 11th lord is placed in the 2nd house (there is a mutual exchange of lords) then this combined placement could give a lot of money from the stock investment or some other kind of investment. If Mars is involved then the gains could also come from stock trading or gambling.
When the 2nd house lord is placed in the 11th house it shows an investment of your wealth in some stock listed company as 11th house represents large organizations and stock listed companies are also part of that. Now if 11th lord is also placed in the 2nd house it means gains from your investments as 11th house is the house of gains and its lord is placed in the 2nd house of wealth. Also, when 8th lord is placed in the 2nd house it means there could be a lot of fluctuations in your wealth and there is risk involved in your wealth as the 8th house is also the house of risk-taking.
When 8th lord is placed in the 2nd house there is no guarantee that you will never lose money even if your 11th lord is placed in the 2nd house. You also need to look at the pada > A2, and if A2 is also placed in the 8th house then there could be loss or profit both as 8th house is the house of uncertainties. If you don't know about A2 then contact me through this site and I am offering an advanced astrology course to learn the real secrets of Vedic astrology. But if pada of A2 is placed in the 11th house there will always be gains for sure. So padas play a very important role in Vedic Astrology and you need an advanced course to just learn only about the padas.
8th house lord is the riskiest planet as it is also the house of death and transformation. If malefic planets like Mars, Saturn, Rahu, Ketu, and Sun are either placed in the 8th house or rules the 8th house then it is even more dangerous. Suppose the 8th lord is placed in the 5th house then there could be a risk to the children of the native especially if Mandi and Gulika are placed in the 5th house as the 5th house is the house of children. If you don't know about Mandi and Gulika then please join the advance course I am offering as there is so much to teach about Mandi and Gulika.
8th lord in the 5th house could also bring a lot of ups and downs in your position (status) and it doesn't matter whether you are a political leader or CEO of a company as 5th house represents your position and also your name and fame as originally this house is ruled by Sun in the default zodiac and Sun is a planet that represents the position and also name and fame.
If 5th lord is either placed in the 6th house or the 10th house then it could also bring change in your job and professional status such as promoted or demoted. If 12th house lord is also placed in the 5th house there could even be loss of position or loss of a job. Even if Ketu is transiting the 5th house then also there could be a loss of job or position.
Even if a planet like Jupiter is ruling the 8th house and placed in the 5th house still there could be a loss in position or status. There are so many other astrological tools that can easily tell whether the change in the status will be good or bad such as whether you will be promoted or demoted as both are change and anything change or transformation is represented by the 8th house and the 8th house lord.
But it is not so that the change in status (whether loss or gain) will surely happen if 8th lord is placed in the 5th house but it is more likely if the 5th lord is either placed in the 8th house or it is placed in a house where the sign of Scorpio falls as Scorpio is also a sign of change as 8th house and the sign of Scorpio are just the same thing. Also, Ketu is the significator of 8th house and so the connection of 5th lord with Ketu either in the birth chart or in transit can also bring change in the job status of the native if 8th house lord is placed in the 5th house.
Also, it not always so that the 8th lord in the 5th house will bring something bad to your children but if other factors are showing that then something bad could also happen to your children. For example, if the 5th lord is shown in the Mrityu Bhaga then this is very risky. If you want to learn about all the secret astrological tools like Mrityu Bhaga then join the course.

8th house is also the house of past life deeds and if you are suffering related to the things of the house where your 8th lord is placed then all the sufferings could be because of your past life deeds. If, suppose, the 8th lord is placed in the 4th house then you may need to change your home a lot if other factors are also showing that. It could also be that you are involved in real estate business and so you may be involved in buying and selling of properties and you may be facing loss or gains both as 8th lord of fluctuation is placed in the 4th house of land and property and home.
5th house is also the house of speculative business and so a lot of people are involved in gambling and stock market trading who have their 8th lord placed in the 5th house. If your 8th lord is placed in the 5th house and if you want to know whether you should trade in the stock market or not then look at where the pada > A2 is placed. If it is placed in the 5th house then you can actually make money from speculative business as A2 pada is well placed and it is actually showing that your money will come from the 5th house. If A2 pada is placed in the 8th house then there will be loss and gain both as 8th house is the house of sudden ups and downs. But if UL (upapada Lagna) is placed in the 5th house it could also bring loss in trading or gambling.
If 8th lord is placed in the 6th house then some injuries could also happen in some accident especially if Mandi and Gulika are also placed in the 6th house. This placement is often seen in the birth chart of people who are involved in risky jobs or professions such as fire fighting, police, terrorists, sportsman, soldiers, chemical engineers, people working underground, people providing emergency services, people involved in combat sports, etc. But a lot will depend on the ruling planet of the 8th house. It is very important to look at where exactly the 8th lord is placed as it gives a great hind what kind of profession the native may be involved in as every profession has some kind of risk and risks are signified by the 8th house lord. For example, if the sign of Gemini rules the 8th house then the risk could be related to travel as Gemini is a sign of travel.
If the sign of Aries rules the 8th house then the risk could be fire or some physical activity such as sports as the sign of Aries represents fire and also sports.
If the sign of Taurus rules the 8th house then the risk could be related to finances such as money laundering or black marketing.
If the sign of Cancer rules the 8th house then there could be a risk to mother or land and property and even psychological problems as the sign of Cancer represents these things.
If the sign of Leo rules the 8th house then the risk could be related to gambling such as stock markets, video games, sports betting, sports injury, etc.
If the sign of Virgo rules the 8th house there could be a risk of a secretive disease as Virgo is a sign of diseases and 8th house is also a secretive house.
If the sign of Libra rules the 8th house then there is a risk of hidden and secretive relationships or business deals.
if the sign of Scorpio rules the 8th house then there could be a risk of hidden sexual activities or even a hidden disease such as the disease of the private parts. The native could also be involved in occult science and secret investigation. and so on............
