Keywords For The 8th House: What We Share, What We Receive

"the death card in tarot"

Alimony, accountants, ancestors…

The 8th House is one of those houses we whisper about.

Memorial services, the bladder, bankruptcy…

There’s some embarrassment about it. You see planets in the 8th House and right away you “know some things” about that person.

Autopsy, death, life after death…

There’s more 000h and ahhh attached to this House than any other, in part because it’s Scorpio’s natural house. 

Possessions of the dead, tax collectors, self-hatred…

Now when I see the 12th House represented, I don’t go “oooh ahh” I go “Ohhhh.”

I nod.

Genitals, joint finances, executions…

4th House I know there’s a family emphasis. 11th and I know friends are like family (depending on what planets are there). 2nd and I know earning and values are on the table. 1st it’s the self. 9th is a teacher/traveler/philosopher. 10th is career career career! Status, ambition…

Graveyards, heirlooms, regeneration…

And so on, around the wheel… We see and can ask a client/querent/friend…. “You have planets here in this house. Tell me about your experiences regarding these areas of life.”

Hemorrhoids, inheritances, legacies…

A 7th House person for example, they say, will attract partners readily. And yet I do know of some who swear otherwise. The open enemies keyword is more apparent.

Obsession, the occult, passion…

But you can see, from all these keywords, what the 8th House is about — what we share with others, what we receive from others, that which is often hidden, serious, taboo, sometimes tragic. The disgusting finds its home in the 8th House. And so does psychoanalysis. The past, the dead, the things of the dead. Ceremonies for the dead.

Again, what we receive. What we share whether it is touchable (sex organs, money) or not (feelings).

And much of this money stuff has to do with the 8th house being the 2nd House to the 7th i.e. your partner’s stuff.

How do you feel about your 8th House?
