Planets in 8th House Interpretations
Sun in 8th house
You have a deep connection with the deeper and darker sides of life such as death, the occult, taboos, and anything else that is unexplored or mysterious. It is easy for you to ‘see through’ anything that is superficial; this includes situations and people. In fact, you really dislike anything fake or superficial. You have an intense awareness of yourself which may lead to phases of self improvement and psychological change. These changes to your personality are likely to happen over long periods of time, and quite out of public view. This makes you a naturally complex and secretive person who appears to be rather mysterious to some. At some point in your life you may be attracted to stock markets and banking. Careers that can make use of your investigative and creative nature will be ideal for you. You have powerful sexual feelings and desires that are long lasting.
While growing up, it is likely that your parents did not recognize your true needs. This is probably because your parents had many problems of their own, and expected you to be supportive of them. Throughout your life, you may have a sense of loneliness that is hard to explain; for example, you could be in a crowd of people and still feel lonely.
Moon in 8th house
You have very powerful emotions that go through many phases of change, and are kept bottled up. However, these emotions find a good outlet in intimate relationships; this is because you are able to connect to partners on a deeper level. This makes you feel more secure about expressing your true feelings. You are intensely loyal to your partners, but can also be quite possessive and jealous.
Mysteries are something that intrigue you, plus anything that is considered taboo, secret, or hidden, interests you too. You may feel a need to experiment sexually, maybe with different partners or techniques. You may have lost a parent early in life, either through a death or separation.
Mercury in 8th house
You have a mind that is naturally investigative and penetrating, always trying to get to the bottom of any mystery or problem. This ability also makes you good at analyzing people, clearly seeing their true personality and motives. You have an interest in the deeper and dark sides of life such as occultism, taboos, and life after death. This is because you are intrigued by the mystery that surrounds these topics, and it challenges you to try and understand them. Also, you probably believe that everything we do and experience has a purpose; you know there is more to life than meets the eye. You have strong persuasive powers.
Venus in 8th house
You crave intense, emotional relationships with people, especially when it comes to love. In fact, a deep connection with a partner is preferred over physical looks. Along with these deep feelings is a tendency to be somewhat jealous and possessive, maybe out of fear of being betrayed. When you give yourself over to love, you love wholeheartedly and expect all-consuming, total devotion and attention in return.
You may be interested in topics such as the paranormal, or anything that is taboo or mysterious.
Mars in 8th house
Relationships can sometimes be difficult due to your fear of betrayal; also, there may be problems regarding joint finances and personal inheritances. You may not experience true passion until later in life, but when you do, it will be magical. Your sex drive is especially active.
Jupiter in 8th house
At some point in your life you are likely to receive quite a large inheritance.
Uranus in 8th house
If you have joint finances or investments with your partner, or someone else, you experience sudden changes for the better. You could have unexpected financial gains at some point in your life.
When it comes to sex, you like to try things that are different or unusual, and tend not to discuss it with others. Also, you do not like to feel controlled through sex; if partners attempt to do so, you will become emotionally and physically inaccessible to them.
You are a very changeable person who may reinvent yourself now and again. Subjects such as metaphysics (the paranormal) and occult fascinate you.
Saturn in 8th house
Changes in your life are hard for you to accept; this makes it extremely difficult for you to grow as an individual. Any changes that do happen are stressful, and bring you much anxiety and worry. You may think differently than most people when it comes to sex and money. Sex is something you like to be planned, maybe even controlled in some way. This means spontaneous love making is definitely not for you.
Neptune in 8th house
Part of you is attracted to the mysterious side of life such as the occult, the paranormal, dreams, and spiritualism, some of which you experience throughout your life. Any strange dreams will have great meaning to you, and you will tend to analyze them. Also, you may have experiences such as déjà-vu.
When it comes to sex, you enjoy role-playing, dressing up, and have sexual fantasies. You probably like to watch pornography too, on your own, and with a partner. Also, you like erotic dance forms such as burlesque, cabaret, belly dance, and striptease arousing. Although you find sex interesting, you don’t approve of anything that has no passion or feeling to it, such as rape or forced sex fantasies; that is a turn off for you.
Pluto in 8th house
You are fascinated with all that is considered hidden, taboo, or mysterious. For example, things like life after death, occultism, astrology, and psychology should all be subjects that interest you. This is because you have a natural ability to see through things, revealing the truth.
