More on the 8th house

It is a rather difficult combination because the 8th house is a malefic house which is called a Dusthana Bhava for the same reason. Hence, energies of the malefic 8th house cause certain disruptions to the matters of the 11th house.



However, if the 11th lord is dignified in the considered malefic house, it allows certain positive outcomes after initial struggles.

On the other hand, when the 11th lord is in the 8th house it is in 10th from its own sign. This 10th disposition or offset adds favorability to this combination because it is the most favorable quadrant or Kendra Bhava which signifies high achievements, social rank, status, karma, duties, profession, etc. as per sidereal Vedic astrology.

In addition to that, the 11th house belongs to the triangle of desires or Kama Trikona, the 8th house belongs to the triangle of salvation or Moksha Trikona while the 10th (disposition) house belongs to the triangle of wealth or Artha Trikona.

The connection between these house types reflects a desire to attain salvation and become enlightened through main activities in life.

With this combination, the native is constantly stressed and anxious when it comes to the future. They have a lot of hesitations and fears regarding their goals.

If the 11th lord is strong and dignified, these fears act like hidden blessings in disguise. That is, the fear makes them prepare for the worst, which helps them to endure the worst periods and reach beautiful destinations through hardships.

These natives are prompted to go through darkness to attain their aspirations and desires.



A strong 11th lord in 8th house combined with a dignified 8th lord makes the native fearless in the process of facing all fears. The fearlessness makes them unstoppable and capable of reaching great heights and attain great achievements, as the 10th disposition suggests.

Negatively, an undignified 11th lord indicates that the native is being held back from taking action by their own fears. They become too restrained and inflexible to take necessary steps.

If the strong 8th lord supports, the circumstances force them to take action and face fears despite their inflexibility and fears which gives them good momentum.

Heightened Sensuality

The 8th house also denotes the enjoyment of physical pleasures between people. At the same time, the 11th house belongs to the desired triangle.
