The 8th House
Two hours left at the office
Clear your desk
Put your cup in the trash
Nothing left to do, too late to start something new
Dodging the boss
Stop giving me busy work
If you think it’s so important, you do it
How much of my time do I owe you exactly?
When are we going to be even?
When is enough, enough?
Just a quick peek at Twitter on the work computer
Is someone keeping tabs?
Quick look over your shoulder
I’m not paranoid
*Cover the camera lens just to be sure*
Clear your browser history
ducking out early
Too late for lunch, too early for dinner
warm sun glow before sunset
“Three o’clock is always too late or too early for anything you want to do.”
― Jean-Paul Sartre , Nausea
Sitting in the back corner, people watching, people listening, eavesdropping
oh sh*t, I thought your name, now there you are
are you psychic or something?
quick, run to the bathroom
I can’t go
I’m backed up
My emotions are backed up
I need someone to talk to
Nice shoes, he has money
Nice dreads, how’s the trust fund holding up
Sizing people up
What can you tell without being told?
Read the room, bro
Just because you noticed something, doesn’t mean it’s true
Whispers and murmurs backed by evidence
The evidence suggests otherwise
Hmm … that’s suspicious
A little detective work on the side
I’m going to look that up when I get home, do a little research
Getting into other people’s business
Sticking your nose where it doesn’t belong
My, my, look what I found
Well, looky what we have here
Mind your own business
The interrogation room is this way
She did it for the money
Let’s see how this all unfolds
Information that is deeply satisfying
Getting to the bottom of things
Solving a mystery
Hey, can I tell you something?
I’ve never told anyone this before
Something has been weighing on me
Why don’t you tell us what happened?
There’s something I need to get off my chest
You can confide in me
You can trust me
I feel so much better now that I told you
What a relief
You got me feeling emotions, deeper than I ever dreamed of
My interest in you makes me interesting to you
I’m interested in you because you’re interested in me
Rate of exchange
I accept your energy
I take care with your personal boundaries
We respect each other
I let my desires transform me
Do you respect me?
Does what matters to me matter to you?
Taking a deeper interest in other people, what they want, and what matters to them
Losing interest in life
The 5th house of Joy square the 8th house of Death
Don’t you dare try to tell me how I feel
Eros versus Thanatos
The desire for life versus the desire for death
I don’t want to be here anymore
Digging deeper to find reasons to be here
You’re here for a reason
Giving yourself permission to be truly invested and interested in what you’re interested in
Your reason for being here
What is the mystery you’re trying to solve?
Who gives a sh*t?
Can this be over already?
I think I’m done here
Wtf am I doing here anyway? I don’t have to deal with this crap
I can leave any time, I have a choice
It’s not like anything I do matters anyway
If I can’t have what I really want, what am I even doing here?
What difference does it make?
I give up
~ I’m out ~
Don’t you want to see how it ends?
Everybody loves a good mystery
I’ll go make some popcorn
Let jealousy be your guide
Jealousy, as an indicator of life desires
Jealousy, as the indicator of what you really really really want that you don’t have
That burning, angry, seething feeling that is threatening to tear you apart?
Say hello to my little friend, Jealousy
Hey, she’s talking to you, she’s trying to tell you something
listen, like your life depended on it
this old thing? I only wear it when I don’t care how I look
that little bitch
Get what you want without taking from others
I want what you have
I want that
I want you
I want you, the right way
I want you, but I want you to want me too
2nd house is having – 8th house is wanting
What do you want?
Do you want it?
Do I want what?
I want what you want
Where do our desires meet
How can we please each other
please, please me
I want you, the right way
— Marvin Gaye, I Want You
I want him to stop bothering me
I want her to leave me alone
Keep your hands to yourself
Take your hands off me
Stop sneaking into my phone
Don’t read my diary
Why don’t you respect my privacy?
You don’t own me
You can’t know all there is to know about me when I don’t even know it myself
I am infinite
YOU are infinite
Don’t let people put you in their stupid little boxes
Life after death
Life after life
infinity inifinitay infininininitaytaytaytay
Stop trying to make claims on me
No, you weren’t here first
I wasn’t either
Quit stalking me
Take a picture, why don’t ya? It’ll last longer
I just can’t get enough, I just can’t get enough
I’ve got you under my thumb
I’ve got you under my skin
I’m begging you for mercy
You own nothing
You can’t take it with you
Quick Spoiler Alert
What will you owe the ferryman?
Trips to the other side
Giving credit where credit is due
What can you actually take credit for?
Stop trying to take credit for my work
Getting credit for your work (8th house sextile 6th and 10th)
I’m grateful for all the ways you’ve helped me
I’m grateful for all your support
I couldn’t have done it without you
Giving and receiving compliments with sincerity
I’m going to leave you some money in my will
Well this is just a simple song
To say what you done
I told you about all those fears
And away they did run
You sure must be strong
When you feel like an ocean
Being warmed by the sun
– The Shins, “Simple Song“
When I die, who will profit?
Who’s got your back?
You’re in good hands, with Allstate
What’s your credit score?
Are you credit worthy?
Who will invest in you?
Are you the genuine fake?
Who’s supporting you?
Who’s going to bail you out?
Crowdfunding (8th house + 11th House)
What will you pass on?
What will your legacy be?
What comes next?
Learning to let people depend on you emotionally, but there has to be reciprocation
A willingness to discuss taboo subjects
Mom, who is going to get the house when you die?
Who will take care of the children if something happens to us?
Who’s going to get your stuff?
Let’s talk about death, baby
Let’s talk about all the good things and the bad things that may be
I plan to die in my sleep when I’m 90, what about you?
The stuff that makes everybody uncomfortable
*Can we change the subject?*
If you talk about it, it will happen
The power of suggestion
You shouldn’t talk about things like that, that’s not nice
Putting off the inevitable
Shiiiit, there you are again
*Looking busy on my phone*
Stalling for time
The Idle Place
The Devil’s Advocate (8th house semi sextile 7th)
God’s Right Hand (8th house semi sextile 9th)
Having an angel and a devil on each shoulder
What would you give to have everything you desire?
Would you sell your soul?
Asking for a friend
let's change the subject
Treating other people’s things as if they were your own
Respecting people’s property
Cleaning up after yourself
Clean up your mess, and I don’t mean your dirty laundry, or maybe I do
Energetic debris field
Work with yourself, work through your issues
Ouch. So painful.
Gaining power by working through your emotions
Gaining insight by working with yourself
The emotional work you need to do that you’re avoiding
Developing your own material
Transforming, even if your old self becomes a source of embarrassment
Allowing yourself to change
She is so full of crap
People don’t change
We’ll see who’s full of crap when the body releases at death
Transformers, more than meets the eye
The Eye, the All-Seeing-Eye, give it to me
An eye for an eye
The ability to recognize other people’s gifts
Taking advantage of people
Are you a good witch or a bad witch?
Who, me? Why, I’m not a witch at all.
– Dorothy & Glinda, The Wizard of Oz
