Sun in the 8th House connects with the energies of Scorpio and its ruler Mars. Sun is sharing a great friendly relationship with Mars which indicates various positive results from this planetary position. However, the 8th house, being a house of difficulties or Dushtana Bhava, carries intense transformational energies that require some sacrifice in order to become transformed – most often, this process is emotionally painful. As a result, Sun loses some of its natural strength in the 8th house which also lessens the number of positive effects of Sun in the 8th house.


Eighth House signifies transformation – the rebirth of the soul, the most vulnerable points of one’s self and soul, spiritual enlightenment, darkness, mysticism, causes of fears, mental ailments, chronic or long-term health ailments, rejuvenation, longevity, research, history, occult science, hidden miracles of life, tax money, insurance banks, hidden treasury, sudden and unexpected gains, inheritance, testament, unexpected events – both good and bad ones, passion, and sexual activity.

Health & Longevity

Sun, being a planet of light, is able to guide a person out of the darkest periods and events, which are signified by the 8th house.

Moreover, the considered combination promotes spiritual advancement as well by experiencing and overcoming difficult periods in life, which ultimately increase strength, durability, and wisdom.

Spiritual advancement is further supported by the matter of fact that the planet Sun is the universal significator of soul and vitality.

Additionally, the likelihood of spiritual advancement can be measured by the condition of the Sun in the 8th house and the lord of the 8th house. Therefore, if the Sun and 8th house lord are strong and well-placed, it indicates the gain of spiritual wisdom and enlightenment of the soul.



However, the natural effect and meaning of the 8th house (house of difficulties or Dushtana Bhava) will always be there regardless of the strength of Sun and 8th lord. Upheavals and hardships in life motivate and initiate the interest to discover the meaning of life and soul.

Ultimately, the overcoming of hard events in life, which are caused by malefic houses such as the 8th house increases strength, wisdom, and courage. That is by bringing out and challenging the most vulnerable aspects of mind, body, and soul.

We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.
