Natives who have their natal Sun placed in the 8th house are illuminating the obscure meanings of death, sex and the occult. No matter which their Sun sign is, they become quite Scorpionic in their character, have deep desires and a very strong will. For them, power is very important while sex is a mystical experience of death and rebirth.
This Sun placement creates an urge to go deep into the mysteries of life and death. Such individuals are very interested in discovering the meanings of life, constantly seeking for answers on whether death is the final destination or we continue towards somewhere else. These interests make them attracted to the occult, and they can reach tremendous knowledge about such kind of issues. Observing the big picture of how life functions makes them difficult to be satisfied by common experience and everyday reality. Nevertheless, this placement attracts a lot of supernatural experiences, and many of them are permanently transforming them. Everything that is unexplored or taboo for the masses, fascinates them and attracts them. This is also a reason for the masses to slightly fear them, or consider them morbid and dark.
A person with the Sun in the 8th house will live many lives in one. These lives can be experienced either one after the other, or even simultaneously. It feels like being a protagonist in different movies, and because every movie has different surroundings and concept, the native is a totally different person in each one. While transcending from the one life to the other, the person can experience powerful dissolutions of his ego, and each death of his temporary persona is simulating real death. An 8th house Sun person has many ways of simulating death, in order to get acquainted with the biggest mystery and prepare himself to experience it. Other people might think that such natives are not afraid of death. Of course, this is not a right view. People with Sun in the house of death, are either consciously or unconsciously following the eastern orthodox proverb:
“Die before you die, so that you don’t die when you die.”
A curious fact is that the individual may achieve fame and success after his death. His death might be theatrical, phantasmagorical or dramatic. There are possibilities of leaving legacies towards the masses. This placement can be present in writers and artists that have their work more recognized after their death than during their lives.
The Sun in the 8th house, which is responsible for other people’s money, loans and inheritances, is quite good for the native’s finances. Large amounts of wealth can come in their hands after the death of their father, or another father figure. It is very frequent that they lose their father while they are still young in age. When the Sun is in Leo sign, then most times the native’s father dies from a heart attack. The Sun placed there makes them great in handling other people’s money, or even governmental. For such natives, it is quite easy to get a loan from a bank, provided that Sun does not have adverse aspects from Mars, Saturn or Pluto. In such occasions, natives are advised to not indulge in taking loans; they might easily receive one but have tremendous difficulties in paying it back.
They are very magnetic and seductive; their sexuality is as intense as a Scorpio’s. The Sun in the latter part of the 8th house makes sex a religion for them. Such people are feeling becoming gods through sexual activities, and are also creating a God/Goddess of their partner. For them, eroticism is art, expression and meditation. Their bed is an altar, and every sexual act is a ritual. The same attributes appear to people that have the Sun in the first part of the 8th house, with the difference that they are concentrating on their partner, and not on the idea itself. Their sexual evolution is strongly connected with bonding to their significant other (ruled by the yth house). They are aiming in uniting the two souls into one body, and reaching the perfect creature by abolishing duality. On the other hand, whoever has his Sun near the 9th house cusp is more interested in higher and more abstract meanings about sex, which makes less necessary the unification with one particular other soul.
The 8th house is an open gate to the other realms, and when one’s Sun resides in the house it can grant him psychic abilities. The native is very perceptive and his intuition is usually right. They can read people through peering in their eyes, and are very difficult to trick or swindle due to strong defenses. Sun in the 8th house makes a person suspicious, with paranoiac tendencies. Their emotions can reach enormous heights, and so can their orgasms in sex. The 8th house has no borders when one manages to pass its gates. What lays outside, is just infinite, and we are so small in front of it. That is the main reason of fears and taboos created by 8th house issues. They are just locks, keeping the gates shut for the unprepared. The ones who are ready, can handle situations that exceed the 5 senses and 4 primary dimensions. And the 8th house Sun people, are born ready.
