Moon in the Eighth House


 

Moon in the eighth house denotes a death of a more or less public nature, death by drowning, shipwreck, public calamity, or in the presence of many people. Afflicted by Mars, danger of sudden or violent death ; by Saturn, a lingering or very grievous end ; by Uranus, a peculiar, sudden or extraordinary death ; by Neptune, tragedy, danger from water. Well aspected, possibility of inheritance through women, or by the mother's side of the family. Some likelihood of early death of the mother, or of the wife (in a male horoscope). In a woman's horoscope it tends to increase the number of children, but threatens the death of one or more, especially if afflicted. If there is any tendency to occultism, this position will increase it and give practical ability for some form of psychism, such as clear dreaming, mediumship, etc. Every seventh year is apt to be a critical period for the life, especially if the Moon is afflicted.
