Moon in 8th House

3D model: astrology houses


The eighth house asks us to enlarge or sacrifice our ego boundaries in order to enter into relationship or union with another or others. To do so, some aspect of our personality or ego must die. Usually it is some thing, not some one, that dies, and with the passing away of that limiting aspect of our personality we experience a releasing freedom.

Herein is the second aspect of this house: resurrection and rebirth. The eighth house rules personal evolution, growth, transformation and change, death, rebirth, sex, possessions of a relationship, legacies, inheritance, taxes, rituals, initiations and the occult, the astral body and reincarnation, and the severing of ties to that to which we are attached. A planet in the eighth indicates that a personal facet of your psyche is under pressure to work more cooperatively or jointly with others. Many planets here signify a person whose life can be characterized by change. Such individuals may find continuous states of affairs monotonous, and periodically bring about changes or crises to feel truly alive.

With the Moon in the eighth house you're very sensitive to and have a natural instinct for the emotions of others. In fact, you're sensitivity extends to what's going on around you in the social and even the psychic realms. After-death states may therefore interest you, and you may have out-of-the-body experiences. You will be asked to sacrifice your personal feelings and yield to the will and desires of those close to you. Your business sense is never sharper than when you are working with or for others, as in a group or corporation. You are great at finding excesses and rooting them out.

Simpson, Terence Stamp, Alan Watts, and Walter Winchell.
