Rahu in 8th house in Astrology makes the native's life very difficult in terms of health and accidents. This is one of the worst positions to have Rahu in, and Rahu not only gives accidents, but it could also lead to jail time. 

However, Rahu in this position makes a native a doctor or surgeon. Most natives in the medical field have Rahu in the 8th house in Astrology.

The eighth house represents sudden events, changes, accidents, sudden surgery, winning a fortune, i.e., anything sudden and unpredictable. The eighth house is known as one of the malefic houses because no one is in control of this house, and the uncertainties can be very overwhelming.

The eighth house is the house of secrets, taxes (prominently tax evasion), losses (relationship, friendship, reputation, wealth), and joint assets after marriage with a partner.

Rahu is known as the shadow planet. It represents the native's past life obsession that was not completed and will be accomplished in the current life. Rahu aspires to the shortcuts and creates an illusion or unfair ways to achieve things it desires. Rahu represents breaking the stereotypes and the malefic energy.

What does Rahu represent in Astrology?

Rahu is the moon’s north node and is a head without a body that

keeps devouring things without ever being satisfied. It desires material things and worldly accomplishments, and it wants to achieve the highest success possible in whatever house and sign it represents. 

Rahu represents the universe’s goals for us to achieve whether we like it or not. Rahu is mainly known as the eclipse, and it eclipses the Moon and the Sun whenever it's in conjunction with them. This means temporary darkness upon the native's life when the Sun and Rahu are in conjunction in a birth horoscope.

Rahu also brings fear and stressful situations into our lives, and this is due to Rahu's adventurous nature that loves surprises. With Rahu, sudden events occur, which may not be a real part of our lives but rather an illusion that becomes a reality.

Rahu in Astrology is a very unsteady and erratic force ruled by obsessive passions

and unconcerned with ethical notions of right and wrong. Because of this, Rahu can bring excellent material progress, though any success gained under its influence is likely to be short-lived. Rahu is tricky and sneaky and creates illusions of all kinds.
