Please Note: This is general prediction and results may vary based on aspects | conjunction | strength of planet, rashi placed etc.

As we know by now, 6th (Sixth) house is 1st of Dushthana Houses (houses # 6, 8 and 12) and 2nd of Upachaya Houses (houses # 3, 6, 10 & 11). 6th house represents things like diseases, debts, obstacles, enemies, disputes, competitions, litigations, under privileged people, pets, daily routine life, colleagues at work place etc.

We have been reading that Eighth is One of Dussthan of Your Horoscope. It is also one member of Trik house, it is also 2nd Moksha sthan of Your Horoscope. 8th house is house of secrecy, occult knowledge, longevity, transformation, death and re-birth, In laws family, joint wealth with spouse, serving other people needs etc.

परद्रव्याभिलाषी च परदाररतोअशुचिः ।।

So when we have 6th lord in 8th house it means, lord of dusthana house is sitting in another dusttahna house, so lots of transformation in life and also a Vipareet raja yoga, mean from this transformations you will rise or gain something. You may spend most time in handling emergency work or crisis situation or deadlines or some sort of secret work like spy or detective.
