The Sexy, Psychic and Basically Eerie 8th House

Donald Duck Sexual Health Poster Art Army Propaganda

The 8th House is the spookiest sector of your astro-chart. Oh well, that’s arguable. I guess anywhere where Pluto is placed could count as well. The 8th house is akin to Scorpio/Plutonic energy.

It’s traditionally associated with (and this in alphabetical order straight from my Rulership Book)  astral experiences, autopsies, collection of debts, executions, genitals, graveyards, heirlooms, hemorrhoids, hidden things, life after death, life force, mysticism, occult matters, passion, rebirth, rectum, reincarnation, sex, the soul, venereal disease & wills.

In ye olden days, people with crowded 8th houses would get a shocking schtick from astrologers way less open-minded & tolerant than we are today.

Strong 8th house types (people with the Sun, Moon or a plethora of planets in the 8th) are super-strong extremophiles. They are often drawn to extreme environments; emergency rooms, brothels, being a depth psychiatrist, whistle-blowers, undercover detectives…They have huge powers of regeneration, secrets and strong e.s.p. re any of the above matters.

Look to your 8th house to see how you are tenacious & psychic, sexy & a survivor. Mars, Pluto, Aries, Scorpio and Capricorn all have affinity with the 8th house.

On the most shallow level, if you – or someone you are interested in – has a loaded 8th house, sex is like a super-important primal drive, all chakras a go-go. Ignore or diminish that & well, this ain’t someone who’ll stick around just for the thrill of bickering in Ikea with you.

Eros in Pisces in the 8th. 0_o Makes a lot of sense — I’ve got a lot of SEX! in my chart (which explains a LOT), and this must be where the more sensual/dirty/deep/mystic side of my sexual nature comes from (the aggro, fun-loving side is prominent in my Mars-Venus conjunct in Aries in the 7th)\ I’ve also got Pallas in Pisces in my 8th. I’m an astrology newb (but I’m bingeing/absorbing quickly and obsessively — Pluto in Scorp in the 3rd? I get a scent for some new skill/piece of knowledge/info and I am ON the trail until I’ve… Read more »

Sun (Leo) Moon (Cancer) Mercury (Cancer) ALL in the 8th House, Pluto in Scorpio. Scorpio rules both my 11th and 12 houses. And Mars in Capricorn. Pretty much ruled by my 8th house. I’m an intuitive astrologer who read tarot before I could read the written word. I find myself most drawn to Karmic astrology. Origins, particularly one’s soul/Karmic and Ethnic Origins are my thing. I love investigating, researching, discerning, analyzing them, in myself and especially other people (8th House is the house of OTHER PEOPLE’s RESOURCES. And your Karmic inheritance & debt are resources). You’d be surprised how many… Read more »

I have Chiron in Taurus in my 8th House. Also Chiron is the singleton in my chart, the handle to my bucket (all other planets/asteroids in house 1, 2, 3, 10, 11, 12, only Chiron on the right hemisphere). Chiron is associated with early wounds, and Taurus is an earth sign, associated with the root chakra — so working through basic, safety, infant issues is a big one for me in feeling secure and worthy. I have dad issues that effect my sexuality, going right back to my in-utero time and my mom’s emotional state while she was pregnant —… Read more »

Actually a lot of my signs are in their ruling house, Aquarius in 11th house, Sagittarius in 9th, Capricorn in 10th.. etc etc.

I have Pluto in Scorpio in the 8th House? Does this make it stronger as the planets and signs are in their ruling house?
I have an extremely high sex drive and I am curious about the universe and death etc etc. I adore the occult, I have always been fascinated and with a desire to learn more all the time.

My moon is in the 8th house, which is also in the sign of Leo. It squares mercury (10th house under the sign of Libra). It also trines mars (4th house under the sign of Aries). And I don’t if this aspect is as potent as the others, but it sextiles jupiter. Jupiter happens to be in my 6th house under the sign of Gemini, which is also my Asc ruler.

I have pluto in scorpio on the cusp on my eight house(which is in scorpio.) My sun and jupiter trine my pluto, and my neptune is sextile my pluto. I am somewhat new to astrology and don’t know exactly how all of this fits together, but I think this eight house is unbearable sometimes! I always felt very strongly that I came to heal the family “curse”-no joke. Somehow I find myself at the center of HUGE family upheavals and dynamics even though the role I usually play is the innocent bystander ha ha. I always feel like people are… Read more »

Mystic has a thread here somewhere about how if you have planets in the 8th your life is not the norm as far as experiences, etc.

And yep doll, someone gotta heal the generational karma. Usually a strong soul will come in to do the job that others have not done.

Thanks. I’ll try to find it. My pluto is at 15 degrees scorpio as well. I guess this is what makes life interesting;)

Wow, great to find this page. I have a stellium in the 8th in libra, with my moon, mars, pallas, saturn, and pluto (all, except the moon of course, are retrograde) and jupiter in scorpio. My moon and mars are conjunct, as well as mars and saturn and saturn and pluto, and a wide mars pluto conjunction. I feel that the 8th house is a very complex and multifaceted house. Apart from a house of (possible) transformation, I also understand it to be a very deeply psychological house (psychic even). I am only now (at the age of 30) becoming… Read more »

Hello!

I was born with Neptune in Scorpio in my natal 2nd House. It opposes Venus in Taurus in my 8th House.

I would love to hear your insights on this combination and key notes on how to rectify the financial difficulties I have been experiencing my entire life.

With immense gratitude,
Cristiaana

I have the same opposition only on the 5/11 axis.

If I were you I would get a consultation from Mystic for your concerns. It took me at least a decade to understand my opposition.

Well I have very crowded eighth house, I’ve done much research for many years, at least 5 maybe more.

I have mars, neptune, venus, uranus, vertex, north node in Capricorn eight house
and
saturn, sun, moon, mercury, lilith in aquarius 8th house, with the moon being cusp of 8th/9th house.

Chiron is in the 2nd house opposing those planets.

Can anyone give me any insights? My Midheaven is Pisces 9th house

8th house is definitely a heavy and psychic house.

very Karmic.

I have alot of karma with scorpios and taureans.

I suppose the spooky stacked in my 8th House is very… very real and transformational in my daily consciousness. I have come to love the eerie and anything strange or unseen. For many years that was not the case. I was terrified of what I felt inside, lived in subconcious fear of what I could not understand beyond reason or logical thinking. Thinking rationally never did propel me forward. It stagnated me. I now understand how beautiful the unknown truly is. It is astonishing to feel psychic energies which now heal me, thanks to my intensity of will to penetrate… Read more »

Pallas – 29*07′ Virgo – 8th
Vesta – 1*57′ Libra – 8th

Any analysis would be appreciated on his and ours together, for the 8th.

Thanks so much!!!

OMG I would love an abundance of information regarding the 8th house.

Pluto – 25*24′ Virgo – 7th & 8th (8th house starts 25*55′)
Mercury – 4*29′ Libra – 8th
Uranus – 4*36′ Libra – 8th
Sun – 7*28′ Libra – 8th
Fortune – 7*41′ Libra – 8th
Jupiter – 14*27′ Libra – 8th

I would appreciate any analysis. I will answer any questions to help draw a clearer pic. I can also send my natal chart.

Thank you so much for your time!! : )

A sun in the 8th house will always be a mistical sun, thus unevolved and terrian nature can be hited and discredited, life will accomplish their destiny and the metaphisical aproach to life will prone in their lives. They will be actively involved into crisis, their own personal or in the outer world, will gesture resources, heal and regenerate them. The first crisis of a sun in the 8th house begins at the age of 18- 20 and consists in a dramatical aproach to a failure or a death of a parental figure, mostly the father. That crisis brings out… Read more »

I forgot to say that also Sun in the 8th house is feeling old, matured from childhood thow there are in the natal chart good aspects that make them ok by progressions and tranzits. Also people might look at these persons like they are verry arogant and distant but they aren’t anything of that nature, they just need time for uncovering theirselves because like scorpio type they see themselves roughly exposed when someone is trying to aproach them, therefore timidity is likely to be their first reaction to the imediate surrounding. The emotional part is verry negative, they have negative… Read more »

I am a Leo Sun and Capricorn Rising, i have my Sun in the 8th and my Mercury also there in the most perfect conjunction astrology has ever found, the Cazimy… life seems to be so unapropriate to me, everything you folcks consider naturally to be and to react, is unatural for a person with Sun in 8th house, these people talk about themselves rarely unless there is a Mercury there too, that is my case. Also there is a tendency to reject life and this might be a case in that one can get sick, psicho- sick, depressed all… Read more »

I’m Capricorn Sun, Capricorn Mercury, Venus Scorpio, Mars Scorpio, Jupiter Scorpio, Uranus Libra, Neptune Saggittarius, Pluto Virgo, Lilith Virgo, Ascending Node Aquarius, Moon Aquarius. Depending on whose reading me I’m Gemini/Saggittarius Rising, Pisces/Virgo Midheaven. I have just Capricorn in 8th House no planets and Taurus in Saturn and Saturn in the 11th House.

“Unfortunately I cannot seem to find a gentleman that can keep up.”

Haha yes empty 8th House in Capricorn too and I have similar ehmm issues. Perhaps it simply translates into being “horny like a goat”? and having a somewhat ruthless streak? 😉

Yep love way out themes especially in movies to do with the occult, sci fi, apocalyptic scenarios and so forth. (but then I do have Uranus and Pluto in the 5th)

Saturn is just finishing up his transit through my 8th. He is conjunct my anus…really, I cannot begin to tell you what a pain in the ass this has been.

The most important thing I have learned is to respect the power contained in the 8th.

Moon – 1 Libra – 8th
Uranus – 11 Libra – 8th
Vertex – 13 Virgo – 8th
Lilith – 24 Virgo – 8th
Pluto – 27 Virgo – 8th

I have Neptune Retrograde in the 8th house (In Sagattarius), and the Moon Square Neptune. Not terribly sure what that indicates, I’ve been told it makes me psychic and sensitive. I do have intese and vivid dreams, and am quite psychic about people, also very sensitive to vibes, and don’t like crowded places especially shopping centres because of it.

my sun is in the 8th house and yes I do”feel” and have long “felt”other people’s pain. As far as the losing a parent at a young age, does divorce count? My father left my mother when I was 2 years old and I never actually “met” him till I was 15.

I know this is an older thread, but I just recently got into astrology pretty heavily lately. I recently made my birth chart, and I have 4 planets in my 8th house. (I’m an Aquarius fyi) my Mercury, Jupiter, and Venus are all three in Aquarius, and my moon which is in Pisces. Just wondering exactly what it’s all about but all four of those are in the 8th house and it seems like this house is talked about a lot.
