8th House Astrology: Desire

8th House Astrology

8th House Astrology

The eighth house describes support from others, sex, death, and transformation. The sign on the cusp of this house can convey information in those areas of life. The eighth house also indicates inheritances — legacies, wills, trusts, taxes, or insurance matters.

The eighth house is the opposite house from the second, which relates to earned income and expended energies. Thus, the eighth house describes how one saves and invests. Hunches and intuition are associated with this area, as are the assets of business or marital partners. This house is co-ruled by the sign of Scorpio and the planet, Pluto.

The eighth house is the home of the sign Scorpio. Like Scorpio, it is ruled by Pluto (and Mars). The element associated with it is Water, and it is a succeedent house.

The basic keywords I use for the this one are “sexuality,” “other people’s money” (including inheritances), and “regeneration” (which includes all kinds of transformations including a literal OR figurative death and rebirth). Whereas the second house relates to our own resources, the eighth (opposite the second) relates to resourses we receive from others, and other people *as* resources for us.

On another level, with the 8th we are taking the first step toward the mysterious side of life. It relates to the occult and things that are hidden under the surface of apparent reality. Pluto, the ruler of the eighth, is known for its transformative qualities… destroying the old to make way for the new. The sign located on the cusp of the eighth house, the planet ruling that sign, and planets located in the eighth house, indicate how we transform ourselves and how we deal with change in our lives. (They also indicate how we experience sex!) Planets in the eighth can represent people who bring about change and transformation in our lives. On a more mundane level they can indicate our dealings with other people’s money and resources.

I have Gemini on the cusp of the 8th, and no planets there. I tend to be very verbal in my approach to change and transformation. When I go through major changes in my life, I need to talk it out to make sense of it all. I also tend to read everything I can get my hands on that deals with the issue I’m facing. My mother use to say that her spiritual guide was a librarian, and I guess I inherited it! I can go into any bookstore or library and almost immediately pick up the book that is just what I need to read at that time.

    On a metaphysical level, the 8th house represents the need for deep levels of emotional security. This can be on the physical level through your intimate partner (manifesting as joint resources) or on the soul level (believing life continues through the birth, death, rebirth process). But your personal experience will be very specific depending upon the signs, aspects and rulerships involving those three planets.

    How does your eighth house reflect transformation in your life?”

    Thank you for your wonderful article!!

    To answer how my eighth house reflects transformation in my life haha um well its complicated.

    I have Uranus, Saturn and Neptune in Capricorn, in the 8th house.

    Uranus has helped me transform my life by being detached enough to use genius mind control tricks and master and control my emotions in order to benefit myself and others. I also view life like I am a scientist, collecting data, slowly getting more aware and raising my consciousness as a fun hobby. Learning slowly but also sometimes in sudden flashes of speed too, that it really is silly to waste my energy caring and thinking about how people view me, when their opinions of me are really only a reflection of their own thought patterns. It has also transformed my life when i realised that my views are reflections of my thought patterns. I am endlessly questioning authority, myself and my own thoughts haha rebelling against my own belief systems, tearing them down in a flash of lighting to rebuild a new way of being.

    Saturn has helped me transform myself purely just from being anxious as fuck, which created me always being super down on myself which meant i would work harder and longer than everyone else and therefore learnt how to take responsibility for creating my own life path. Learnt the hard way, never got anything easy, but this was a gift in learning to transform through hard work basically. Rags to riches through your own blood sweat and tears is way more satisfying when you make it, you know, than it just being given to you for free where you don’t value it or appreciate it as much.

    Neptune has helped me dissolve fear and pain using spiritual awareness and compassion. This is a beautiful gift of this placement. I never need to dissolve walls with others, i can always feel right through them and feel like as if i am them. It’s really hard to stay mad at someone when you are like this tho, you always cave into understanding and awareness that creates generous amounts of compassion and forgiveness. Haha… but this back fires too and you have to learn how to know where you end and other people begin. You need to transform your chameleon soul into one that has a strong sense of self, only this way can you truly be spiritually giving. You can’t truly spiritually give if you keep losing yourself within other people by bending to their perceptions /realities all the time. To truly give it must be from a place of strong self awareness and this means being aware you are a separate human in a body who has individual needs and wants.

    I also have 8th house influences from all my beautifully powerful pluto aspects! My Pluto in Scorpio aspects my Sun, Ascendant, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Saturn, and Neptune. Needless to say i am very Plutonic/8th house influenced person, so really loved reading your articles on this! Thanks for posting.

    I hoper his makes sense I’m baked haha. Peace and love to you all bitchessss! x
