8th House Vedic Astrology, Eighth
HouseThe eighth house is considered as the bhava that has a
direct bearing on the longevity or life span of a person in the material world.
In context of the question of longevity, it needs to be said that one should consider
the aspects of the first as well as third houses while taking into account the
eighth house. The eighth house is also known as the house of death and once the
person has lived the allotted span of their life; all which is related with
death such as legacies, inheritance, insurance, wills, gratuity, bonus and the
like will be affected. The lagna is said to indicate the aspect of incarnation
and the eighth house indicates disincarnation. According to the Hindus, the eighth
house stands for the end of the individual’s life.
The house indicates whether the person will encounter a
natural death or if it will be unnatural such as by accident, drowning, fire,
suicide, or chronic disease or if the death will be slow, sudden or violent. The
timing of the death needs to b inferred with reference to the houses 2 and 7, which
are placed respectively in the 12 to 8th and 3rd houses after judging
the bhadakasthanas. First and foremost, you need to understand whether the
horoscope of the native promises long, medium or short life span. If there is a
long life that is indicated by the horoscope, the evil aspect that has been
formed to the 8th house or the planets that are connected with it by
transit or progression when the native is young will not result in death.
Aspects of the Eighth
The person may thus suffer from ill health instead of
perishing. The ill health may be a cause when the native goes through the
period or the sub period of a beneficial planet showing signs of vitality or full
recovery. The eighth house may indicate other disturbing effects that are
indicated by the effects on the native. They may be for instance worried about
the fact that their parent is getting hospitalized. This is because the eighth
house is the twelfth to the ninth house that represents the father figure.
When the eighth house is occupied by the lord of the lagna, or
the planet in the eighth is posited in the constellation of the lord of the
lagna, the native may encounter death. If the lord of the third house occupying
the eighth house is in the constellation of the lord of the twelfth, the
younger brother or sister of the native may result in the cause of their death.
If the third house is connected alone, the death may result in the asylum,
nursing home, and sanatorium or in an unknown place. In connection with the
eleventh house, the native may die in the residence of a friend or an elder
