Great Wealth & Property

Interestingly, classical text from BPHS state that this combination blesses with abundant wealth, especially in the form of landed property.

This effect can be explained by two astrological facts. Firstly. second house ruler in the eighth house is exactly 7 steps away, or opposite house, which means that the 2nd lord aspects its own sign (2nd house) directly from its position in the 8th house.

In Vedic astrology, it is considered very auspicious as the planet strengthens own house and brings strong influences to the opposite house giving great balance. In this combination, balance is achieved between the accumulation of wealth and sudden losses which protects the assets of the native.

As the 8th house is a natural domain of Mars-ruled Scorpio, which signifies landed property, there will be an abundant amount of real-estate-related assets gained by you.

Also, according to the above-mentioned rules, your financial ground is solid rock and wealth is protected from unexpected losses by this considered planetary combination.

Desire For Materialism

On the other hand, as the 2nd house ruler in the eighth house is 7 steps away from its own sign, it means that you are inclined towards materialism and pleasures.

If your 2nd ruler is well placed in 8th house it means that you will succeed in gaining pleasure and materialistic happiness while the opposite condition gives a lot of obstacles and sudden events that hinder the process of gaining material gains and pleasures.

Sudden Gains & Losses

The 8th astrological house is all about sudden and catastrophic events. With your second lord in it, your assets undergo the same events periodically.

Depending on how well placed the 2nd ruler in 8th is, you experience results accordingly.
