8th House in Astrology: 8th HOUSE BITES

What does 8th house in astrology represent?

The 8th house in the chart is notoriously known as the house of darkness, death and painful transformations. The 8th house is like a personal graveyard where skeletons of the past rest, only to appear every now and then as unexplainable fears and other psychological troubles. ๐Ÿ’€

Common understanding is that no planet or transit or dasha is ever good if it associates with the "ghastly" 8th house. ๐Ÿ’€ However, there are many many reasons to keep the mystery of the 8th house mysterious.

Hidden knowledge

The two most significant characteristics of the 8th house are as follows;

First, 8th house is one of the moksha houses in astrology (house of liberation). The death and re-birth (metaphorical) in the 8th house is what people often experience (sometimes even crave) when they undergo extreme situations in life. (rise of the phoenix phenomena/the awakening).

Second, the 8th house is the house of hidden knowledge and occult, which can be accessed with extraordinary intellect and perception. The 8th house is called the doorway to understanding "life beyond life" and " life before life".

8th house personalities i.e. people with strong 8th house, have a unique way of looking at life. Their greatest charm is their ability to uncover what is otherwise hidden. ๐Ÿ’€ According to the research of many astrologers, a strong 8th house makes great psychologists and astrologers.


Darkness matters.
