More on the 8th house

It is important to note that the positive placement of Saturn and the 8th house lord carry an important role in amplifying the favorable effects or saving from negative results of Moon in the 8th house. Additionally, the majority of results are also determined by the zodiac sign in which the Moon resides in the 8th house.

In addition to that, the phase of the Moon also plays a major role in determining additional results of this combination. With that being said, waxing or full Moon is considered favorable while waning and dark Moon is unfavorable.

Results of Moon in the 8th House


The condition of the Moon in the 8th house determines overall health and longevity. Accordingly, if Moon is Waxing, Full, and/or in its favorable sign it ensures good longevity and health.

Furthermore, if the 8th house lord is also well placed, it extends the longevity and saves from severe chronic ailments.

Alternatively, the Waning Moon causes mental stress and reduces longevity. Debilitation of Moon in the 8th house causes severe mental ailments which leads to other conditions that are detrimental for longevity.

However, if the 8th house lord is strong and well-placed, it saves from the negative effects of debilitated Moon and bestows strong intuition and a powerful mind (Moon).

Strong Intuition

Waxing, Full, and well-placed Moon, as the planet of mind in the house of hidden knowledge in the 8th house, bestows a powerful mind with strong intuition which promotes interest and understanding of various sciences that includes hidden information (astrology, science, investigation, tantra, mantra, psychology, hypnotism, etc).

Such a combination indicates (like timepiece) being blessed with (by God) the ability to understand others’ minds and predict possible events in advance. They do it by combining their deep wisdom with the theory of probability.

Alternatively, the ill-placement (debilitation) of the 8th lord causes using the intuition and powerful mind in unethical pursuits. Furthermore, if also Moon is Waning, Dark, and/or ill-placed in the birth chart it indicates being involved in various illegal underground activities and tax evasion.

A Transformed Mindset

The 8th house is the most difficult but crucial in order to become ready to attain enlightenment along with higher (philosophical or religious wisdom) wisdom.

Hence, the 8th house positively signifies transformation by enduring lots of difficulties caused by sudden tragedies, upheavals, and unexpected events.

It is also self-explanatory that transformational events in life compromise peace of mind which causes constant restlessness, fears, and anxiety in their minds.

The condition of the Moon in the given house gives a clue whether the natives are capable of seeing the blessings in trials or not.

A well-placed (own, exalted sign) Moon in the 8th house shows that these natives are grateful for upheavals for they temper their mindsets.

Being able to resist difficulties, this combination also indicates (like timepiece) being blessed with (by God) a spiritually enlightened mind which also makes one kind and generous which is a direct result of positive transformations.

Apparently, even the favorable placing of Moon in the 8th house brings hardships in life as this is the natural meaning of the considered house.

However, these events are blessings in disguise as they train the mind to become wiser, more courageous, and most importantly spiritually evolved.

Fluctuating Marital Bliss

The 8th house is the 2nd house from the 7th house, which in other words means that the 8th house is the wealth house of the 7th house of marriage and partnerships.

Hence, if Moon is Waxing, Full, and/or well-placed in a favorable sign it indicates great marital bliss and increases in wealth and prosperity after forming marriage or partnership business.

However, there are regular upheavals and transformative events indicated in marriage or any other partnership that will shake the ground to make matters fall in their correct places for good.

Similarly, these intense energies of the Moon in the 8th house indicate a colorful and active intimate connection in marriage.

Additionally, as the 7th house denotes spouse, 2nd (which also signifies overall facial appearance) from it indicates the facial appearance of the spouse.

Accordingly, if the 8th house contains a well-placed Moon it indicates an extremely beautiful and pleasing facial charm of the spouse. Equally, as the Moon aspects natal 2nd house, it also indicates native with this combination of Moon having facial charm and beauty.

Other than that, a well-placed Moon in the 8th house bestows good health for the life partner.

On the contrary, an ill-placed, dark, or waning Moon causes great disturbances in conjugal life with the spouse. There are major upheavals that make the harmony of the relationship highly fluctuate.

Other than that, a negatively placed Moon in this house causes the natives to have very dirty or perverted thinking patterns which also ruin the purity in a life partnership.

Fears & Worries

This combination causes great anxiety and stress from the constant fear of darkness and uncertainty.

That is because Moon is the planet that governs the mind and thinking patterns while the 8th house is a dark deep and scary house.

In fact, Moon is also fallen in the natural 8th zodiac sign Scorpio, which naturally represents this house. Hence, this is another reason that proves that the 8th house energies are highly incompatible with the gentle and shiny Moon.

It is also a malefic house where natural soft, gentle, and benefic plant Moon fails to operate effectively. Moon loves to be illuminated but in the 8th house, it becomes shaded, unless the Moon is waxing or full.

This causes the natives to have a very disturbed mind which leads to self-destructive thinking patterns.

They are in constant fear of loss, enemies, darkness, unexpected unfortunate events, etc.

However, if the Moon is well placed, waxing, or full in the 8th house, it is able to strengthen the mind and develop resistance to fears. The initial worries prompt the natives to face all their fears.

By doing that the mind becomes strengthened which eventually helps them to become fearless and resistant to all the negativity. The mind becomes hardened and seasoned with the help of facing fears.

Some of The Last Words of God via The Last Prophet [PBUH]

Intuitive Mother

Moon in the 8th house indicates an intuitive, mysterious, smart, and suspicious nature of the Mother. It also indicates that she can be manipulative, hypnotizing, and possess healing capabilities.

Additionally, this combination suggests that the mother has similar interests in the mysterious side of life and studies various occult sciences.

Possible Sarala Viparita Raja Yoga

Moon being in its own sign Cancer makes it 8th house lord in the 8th house, which ultimately forms a powerful combination of Sarala Yoga, which indicates (like timepiece) being blessed with (by God) good health, long life, strong intuition, and abundant courage (Scorpio – Mars).

As Moon is involved, its significations will be amplified as well – as a result, the mind becomes fearless, courageous, exceptionally intuitive, and smart regarding occult and other hidden sciences.

Additionally, the considered set of combinations indicates (like timepiece) being blessed with (by God) abundant gains through activities related to Mars and Moon, such as real-estate, accommodation, and care-taking.

Also, luck through activities related to the 8th house, such as insurance, astrology, psychology, mining, and investigation.

Classical Interpretation

Bhrigu Sutras

In this classical source, it is mentioned that this combination deprives the native of a fortunate and comfortable life.

It is because the 8th is the 12th (loss) of the 9th house of luck and fortune. Hence, by default, if Moonis without benefic influence it decreases the fortunes and comforts of the native.

This combination also causes danger from water bodies, such as oceans, tanks, wells, rivers, ponds, etc. That is because Moon is a planet that rules over fluids and water while the 8th house is the deep and dark house on uncertainty and dangers.

Hence, water and fluids prove to be dangerous to the native. However, the outcomes are strongly dependent on the dignity and phase of the Moon in the given house.

However, if the Moon is waxing or full in its own or exaltation sign in the 8th house, it provides the native with good longevity.

That is because the 8th house positively signifies longevity, the auspicious results of which can be extracted by a well-placed planet in the 8th house.

Alternatively, a waning Moon is said to decrease longevity.

In addition to that, it is important to analyze the strength, dignity, and condition of the 8th house ruler to determine additional outcomes of the 8th house significances.

Brihat Jataka

According to this classical source, natives with this combination are having a highly fluctuating and stressed mind. They are also in danger of suffering chronic mental conditions such as depression or anxiety.

It is important to note that such results are manifested only when Moon is waning, dark, and ill-placed in this house without any benefic influence.


In this classical source, similar negative results are mentioned that the native is fragile and prone to catch diseases related to fluids or mentality, as naturally weak Moon in the 8th house suggests.


In this classical source, positive results of a well-placed and strong Moon are mentioned.

Namely, this combination provides a deeply intelligent mind to the native. That is because the 8th house signifies everything underneath the surface and a strong Moon in this house gives the impulse to dive deep into any topic.

It also provides them interest to learn details of any science by doing deep research which ultimately trains the mind to become super learned and intelligent.

However, if Moon is waning the above-mentioned positive results may not manifest and also cause a weakened immunity which leads to loss of physical strength.

Chamatkara Chintamani

In addition to the above-mentioned negative results, this classical source also suggests that natives with this combination will have a constant fear of enemies.

In addition to that, such natives are prompted to face a lot of struggles, upheavals, and adversities in life.

These results will not manifest if the Moon is strong and well placed in the natal birth chart.

References to The Last Word of God are included not to mix Sunnah Kitab or Quran with worldly science, but to offer the best cure for worldly issues. Always know that this science and the latest religious revelations are separated from each other for more than 5000 years. If you were to evolve from old Vedic science and adopt the latest religious teaching, the leap is worth more than 5000 years of human evolution. I am currently conducting theological updates on all articles, hence some errors may be there. All credit for increased wisdom goes to the best & brightest man who ever walked on Earth who is no other than the Greatest Blessing For Humanity & Seal of Prophets Muhammad ﷺ, and people who kindly taught me the Word of God. All glory to God Almighty.
