AstroFix Reader Question: What Does it Mean to Have So Many Planets in the 8th House?

Question

Hi Michelle!!! I was wondering if you have time to do a quick chart for me. As soon as I saw your post I went to astro.com to see what I have going on in the 8th house. In readings I’ve gotten in the past I remember hearing, whoah , you have a lot going on in the 8th house. It would appear so. It’s a little scary to me because it seems like there’s WAY much going on in there. What do you make of it?

Getting to the Bottom of Things

P

luto in your 8th house carries with it all of the potentials of your 9th house. This is because Scorpio is the sign on your 9th house cusp and Pluto is Scorpio’s ruler. Pluto brings your 9th house concerns with it to your 8th house. Every time your 9th house wants to do something it checks with the agenda of the 8th house.

  • What this means is that when you consider going back to school, when you think about the meaning of life, when you wonder about metaphysical topics, you bring those concerns back to your 8th house and you ask “How do these activities and interests serve my need to dig deep, handle crisis, develop deep relationships with others, understand my relationship to death, and satisfy my desire to get to the bottom of things?”
  • The same is true of your 10th house (represented by Jupiter), your 11th house (also represented by Jupiter), your 12th house (represented by Saturn) and your 2nd house (represented by Mars).
  • These four planets serve the agenda of the 8th house. They bring the concerns of the houses they represent to the 8th house for direction and further instructions. They want to know, “How deep can I go in this area of my life?
  • You begin to engage the depth of your 8th house when you embrace the 8th house ruler- Venus in Cancer in the 6th house. Much of your potential for transformation and deep interaction comes into play when you work in a caring, possibly female-oriented, environment on a day to day basis (just one of many possibilities).
