Eighth House

"Sex is just one possible outlet"

Part I - Lesson 6.8

This is the house of Sex. Well, what you might call “biological energy”(just a metaphor, folks; don’t take it literally). Sex is just one possible outlet. This house shows one’s sexual tastes. The fifth house is romance. The eighth house is more physical and basic. House eight also shows the effect of social rules ( the rules of the society or social group you belong to) on you as well as the effect you can have on the values of those around you. It also indicates the access you may have to other people’s money and resources.

Sun in the Eighth House: usually means a dramatic, fiery approach to sex. If you are going out with someone who has this, start with a back rub.

The Sun’s house position is where we can fulfill ourselves. Well it doesn’t have to be exclusively through sex. You could also do it through taking up a healing profession (the eighth house covers rehabilitation) or management of other people’s resources (professions such as investment banking and the like).

Moon in the Eighth House: dinner first is a must. Cuddling helps. There is an emotional need to heal and nurture. Moon in the second house wants to accumulate its own money and possessions. Moon in the eighth gives an emotional need to manage and control the resources of others.

Mercury in the Eighth House: will never be turned on by a silent person. Talk first. Lots of talk. Mercury in the second house talks and thinks about money. Mercury in the eighth talks and thinks about sex, health (rehabilitation), and other people’s money and resources.

Venus in the Eighth House: needs charm. Put them in beautiful surroundings. Venus in the second house wants to enjoy luxurious possessions. Venus in the eighth house wants those possessions to be provided by a someone else.

Mars in the Eighth House: planet of action. They’ll put the moves on you. Be prepared for lots of physical activity. One exception. If their Mars happens to be in the sign of Gemini, expect the original minuteman (or woman). Those with this placement have to be extra careful with credit cards (Mars is an impulsive shopper and the eighth house is other people’s money; this includes credit matters).

Jupiter in the Eighth House: is generally free and open in the sexual area. There is a tendency to be “turned on” by foreigners or those from totally different backgrounds. Credit can come too easily here. Watch out for a tendency to borrow too much. When it comes to social values, Jupiter is usually conventional and insists that the rules be obeyed—by others, not necessarily by they themselves

Saturn in the Eighth House: wants control. I call this one the “I tie you up, you tie me up” position. No, Saturn here does not deny sex. It just wants to plan and control it and is generally not spontaneous. Saturn here can cause difficulties and delays with credit matters and inheritances. Because of early problems in this area, those with Saturn in the eighth house are frequently sticklers about these things. If you have Saturn in the eighth house, you probably manage other people’s money better than you manage your own and are firm on social rules.

Uranus in the Eighth House: never likes to do the same thing twice in a row. I call this one the “But Honey, we did the chandeliers last night” position. This one tends to break social rules and taboos on principle. Of course, after the old rules are overthrown, Uranus wants to replace them with new rigid rules of its own making.

Neptune in the Eighth House: two glasses of wine maximum and this one is yours. If you’re business partners with a Neptune in the eighth house person, YOU manage the money. If you yourself have this placement, learn to watch your partners. Neptune is where we get into trouble because we don’t want to be bothered by something that not “spiritual” (reality).

Pluto in the Eighth House: I hope you’re in great physical shape and your medical insurance is paid up. You’ll need that if you get involved with a Pluto in the eighth house person. Those with Pluto here have to take care that sexual activity does not become compulsive. When it comes to other people’s money or partnership resources, take care to avoid “power trips”, to avoid underhanded methods to seize control just to feel strong.
