What does it mean to have Rahu in 8th house of a chart?

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

Rahu is the north lunar node (ascending) and it along with Ketu is a “shadow planet” that causes eclipses. Rahu has no physical shape. It is an imaginary planet but considering the importance of Rahu in astrology, it has been allocated the status of the planet by Rishis. Rahu is known to confer malefic effects in general and is considered as a planet which induces laziness, delays, and hurdles in work. Rahu is known to reflect its shadow for 18 months in a zodiac. It can create confusion, depression and emotional imbalance if placed negatively in the horoscope. It is said that if Rahu sits in an auspicious position in the horoscope of a person, then luck is brightened. With this, the person attains sharp intellect. The native receives honour and fame in the society.

As we have known, Eighth house is commonly referred to as the the House of Death. It reveals what our relationships will bring to us and how we can get the most out of them. Just like its natural ruling planet Saturn (which stands for equality and justice), the 8th House stands for equal opportunity. It places death and rebirth on the same level and acknowledges the importance and viability of all three. Death and rebirth is a part of life. 8th house is house of secrecy, occult knowledge, longevity, transformation, In laws family, joint wealth with spouse etc.

So when Rahu is in 8th house it means, a very good position for 8th house significance like secrets or occult science knowledge, so this position can make a good astrologer or occult science practitioner.

Your in-laws can be a foreigner or from a foreign land or country or from different culture. Some stress in marital life may also be experienced due to this position. You may become well versed with tantra mantra. But as its Rahu and 8th house its one of most feared house position by astrologers and difficult to predict.
