The Mysteries of the 8th House: House of Death & Transformation After studying astrology for several years, it became

evident to me that the most powerful house in our astrological chart was the eighth house. Each time I analyzed a natal chart, there would be a common thread for all individuals who had planets in this house. I want to paint a picture of the most intense house in our chart: the house of death. The Eighth house is ruled by the sign Scorpio. All issues related to Scorpio rule this house. ost importantly death, se!uality, secrets, other people"s resources, sacrifice and the unseen world of spirits, astral entities, ghosts or our direct e!perience with such things. Anything that is taboo, intense, uncomfortable and deep lingers in this house. #aving planets in this house will cause individuals to obsess over death. $eath is symbolic of change. In the tarot dec%, the $eath card represents transformation, regeneration and change. All these facts are found within the eighth house. any individuals with planets here will benefit through other people&s resources. This house rules legacies, inheritances and land. Anything that is given to us through the death of someone close is eighth house territory. This is the house of sacrifice. 'hat does sacrifice truly mean( Individuals with planets here, especially the Sun or oon, will e!perience great benefits given to them from others. any people will sacrifice so that these individuals are ta%en care of financially. )ther times, the energy can manifest the opposite way. Individuals may find themselves constantly sacrificing their own emotions and what they really want for others. Sometimes they may fall in love with someone who is not free. They may stay with a spouse out of guilt or responsibility, when their heart belongs to someone else. These situations can create a deep*seated loneliness and feelings of resentfulness. There is no way to escape this energy. Individuals with eighth house energy must transform and let things die in order to benefit. +rowing spiritually, and achieving a deep insight into others, are the gifts of this house. The first thing that comes to mind when we thin% of the eighth house is the word, Energy. The subtle energies that surround our physical bodies %nown as chi, prana, and life force, and how this energy can be used to heal others.
