Venus in 8th house in Astrology is not a bad placement for Venus even though it’s the 8th malefic house. Venus in 8th house in Vedic Astrology represents death and rebirth; Venus gives lots of wealth through their wife's family. It makes the native lord of some institution and gives easy loans from banks and family.
The 8th House rules the death and rebirth of a person or how one rises after a great fall in their life. This house also shows money through in-laws
and friends as in loans you might get from them. Financial loans for home, business is also shown from this house. Deep-rooted issues of one's life and one interest or lack thereof in the mystical world such as astrology, magic, tantric practices, ghosts are shown from this house. 8th house also represents the life span of a person. This is simply the house of the occult. Secret affairs are also seen from this.
Government taxes, spies, and business-related to secret government dealings are seen from the 8th house. Death is not something to fear; you will die, you can’t live forever, but if your lifespan is short (although it’s a blessing in my terms), you can still extend it per Vedic astrology remedies.) We will talk about remedies later in the book. 8th house is a major (Marka House). This is truly a death-inflicting house, as the 8th house deals with things buried deep beneath the earth, and when certain planets align in the 2nd, 7th, and 8th house, it usually causes death for a person.
After marriage, a lot of readjusting is required. There is a separation of the family one was born in, and one's own stability and integrity are tested. It is a stage in life that can be very vulnerable. If one does things right at this stage, the foundation is in place for long healthy life. This stage is a junction point of past and future, and the 8th house indicates Astrology for that reason.
The 8th House corresponds to the lowest part of the trunk, the genitals, anus, and eliminatory system. Scorpio corresponds to the 8th house. Fixed, but ruled by the forceful Mars, add the signification of sudden calamities to the 8th house. On the positive side, the sharp and analytical Mars can also add an element of research to this house.
Venus shows the value we put on relationships and how we react to them. The main focus is on romantic relationships. Venus is also about comfort, as
relationships and love give us that feeling. Further, Venus also represents the convenience of luxurious items like a car, air conditioning, clothing, jewelry, wealth, and beauty inside the home. Since Venus signifies pleasure, it can be any pleasure: sex, art, entertainment, interior decoration, beauty
pageants, or anything else related to having fun.
Venus in Vedic Astrology represents reproduction (literally semen). Venus indicates everything, directly and indirectly, related to human reproduction: manage, sex, harmony, comforts, luxury, pleasures, and beauty. The condition of Venus in the horoscope will define one's ability to experience harmonious and romantic relationships and the level at which one deals with.
Note: The degree of auspiciousness and inauspiciousness will depend upon a complete analysis of the horoscope (birth-chart).
