Now that you know which sign your 8th House is, please read the description for the
sign that rules your 8th house of Transformation, Obstacles & Longevity. This
description offers you general inclinations you will have due to this sign ruling your 8th
House. As you read the description, please also make note of the Ruling Planet. We will use

We wish to remind you that there are many factors which influence your chart, your

aspects of your Transformation, Obstacles & Longevity house is to know which planets most
directly influence it and modify its nature.

To do this, run the Chart Report on Astroved. Examine your 8th House and note any planets
in that sign, then read the descriptions for each planet that you have in your 8th House to see
how they affect your 8th house indicators.

To help you determine whether your 8th house will tend to have the negative influence
mentioned above, refer to the following chart. If your 8th House sign has an enemy planet
in it, then you need to guard against the negative effects. Rahu and Ketu are not listed as they
are generally considered unfavorable for all signs. Generally, no planet is optimal in the 8th
house. (An exception would be Saturn in its own sign bringing longevity.)

The final step in understanding your personal 8th house is to examine where your 8th houses
Planetary Ruler is placed in your chart and what that means for you. Remember, the Planetary
Ruler can be found in the chart in Step 2.

Now, look again at your Chart Report. What sign is your planetary ruler of your 8th House
placed? For instance, you may find that you have a Pisces 8th House. Pisces ruling planet is
Jupiter. The Chart Report would show you in which House your Jupiter is placed. Perhaps
your Jupiter is in your 2nd House.

The placement of your 8th House planetary ruler will tell you how your Transformation,
Obstacles & Longevity karma will be experienced by you in this lifetime. So, in our example,
if your ruling 8th House planet is Jupiter and placed in your 2nd House (Wealth/Finances)
of Virgo, this favors the ability to generate income from others such as inheritance.

Keep in mind that as the planets have a range of values, so do placement of planets in the
houses. Below are some indications of each House:
Planet that
rules the 8th How your Transformation, Obstacles & Longevity Karma is

A great range of fortunes: if strong (e.g. in its own sign in the 1st), it
brings a skill for the occult, dream work, insights into the psyche as

well as longevity. If afflicted, the opposite prevails. Must be precise
in dealings with government.

11th House
friends. Has influential friends. Can bring difficulties to siblings.
Favors long distance travel (esp. foreign lands), spiritual attainment.
12th House Health away from home should be guarded. Interest in religious
matters. Must guard against unnecessary expenses.
By means of another example, if your Eighth House is Aquarius, then your planetary ruler is
Saturn. When you look at your chart, you see that Saturn is placed in its own sign of Aquarius
in the 8th House. Saturn, being the planet of longevity, in the house of longevity, brings you
the promise of a long life.
At this point, you now have an understanding of:

1. What sign rules your 8th House

2. What planets, if any, are in your 8th house
3. What planet rules your 8th house; and
4. In which house your ruling 8th house planet is placed in your chart.

This will give you a good basic comprehension of which signs and planets are influencing
your transformations, obstacles and longevity. If you have 2 or more planets in your 8th
House, look to which of the planets are weak and causing you difficulties based on the
descriptions of the planets above. Then remedy that planet!

When Transformation, Obstacles & Longevity Karma Become Active

Overcoming obstacles and sustaining strong health are generally an on-going interest for most

most pronounced. To see if you are in a period especially influencing your 8th house issues,
run your Planetary Influence report in Astroved for free. This report will tell you your
major and minor planetary period, called Dasha (major) and Bukti (minor). If your major
or minor planet is either the Ruler of your Eighth House or in the Eighth House, this will be a
time of increased focus on 8th house conditions. If the planet is good for you, look for
opportunities for transformational change through the loosing of old boundaries. If it is
unfavorable, then there can be chronic health issues or challenges with reputation or moral
