Having natal Uranus in the 8th house is a rather good placement, which totally complies with the tendencies of our aeon. The 8th house is an open gate to the other worlds, and the presence of Uranus is a very strong indicator of powers that still cannot be explained. The erratic character of Uranus might bring some issues in the everyday reality of a person; nevertheless material things are no priority to such a native.
The 8th house is widely known to be the house of death, and Uranus placed inside it is giving a sudden and unusual death without suffering. This by no means implies an early death, but quite much erases possibilities of leaving this world due to sickness or other lengthy processes. In case that Mars is aspecting natal Uranus, this might happen through an accident. In addition, Uranus is responsible for all weird deaths that can even become news on the television. Curiously enough, it is also ruling funny ways of death, and everything else that falls in the category “believe it or not”. Yes, if you have this placement, be careful of stepping on banana skins or choke on your own saliva. Yes, being struck by a lightning or electricity is also a matter of this placement.
As the 8th house is linked to inheritances, this natal placement gives quite a lot of possibilities to receive an unexpected legacy. If the planet is well-aspected, this is definite to happen and the native will generally receive a lot of financial help through other people, even without doing anything to get it! His finances might change drastically, and become a wealthy person in just one day, after a long period of poverty. Be careful, because the nature of Uranus might also do the exact opposite.
When the planet is ill-aspected, it gives high possibility of bankruptcy, with the government or banks confiscating the native’s wealth. Again, such types of events will be unpredictable and will strike like a bolt out of the blue. Even if a bankruptcy happens, do not get disheartened; Uranus might gift back the same way it takes something away from someone. A good characteristic of such types of people is that they do not really care about wealth, so ups and downs of their finances are regarded with a pinch of salt.
The rebellious planet Uranus seeks freedom in the matters of any house it is located in. When placed in the 8th, the native will seek freedom through sexuality. People with such a placement do not have taboos and adore engaging in breaking the taboos with their partners. Uranus in the 8th can give a deep need of sexual experimentation, creating a lot of fetishes and perversions. The native’s sexual encounters are surrounded by altruism; the individual loves to offer to his partner and can reach higher spiritual levels with someone he unites. Sex becomes sacred, and even magical. People with this natal position of Uranus might be interested in Tantra, Yoga or various systems of such types. These can include energy manipulation through sexual arousal, but such a thing is not necessary. There are a lot more ways to raise energy, without the need of it to be sexual.
As we speak about magic, we should not forget to mention the occult abilities of such an individual. Uranus may grant him with a very strong intuition, which is usually arriving as a lightning strike. These types of insights can create sudden clarity moments and even bring clairvoyance. The person can instantly “download” cosmic information, and psychically even be in more than one place at the same time. This natal aspect helps with astral projection and common techniques; the native’s veil towards the unknown is rather thin and he can learn how to lift it without a lot of difficulties. The other realms are strongly attracting a person with Uranus in the 8th house, and he will be very interested in researching the possibilities of life after death. A lot of people with this placement will believe in reincarnation, or some other form of life/soul continuation after the physical death of the body.
Uranus in the eighth gives a natural hate towards banks and the financial system. The person might not care about paying his taxes and generally will dislike being in any type of connection with such institutions. This placement is typical for people that use alternative ways to handle their finances. They prefer electronic numismatics, such as the Bitcoin. Also, they will choose to trade services with someone rather than pay or get paid. Generally, a good aspected Uranus may indicate great gains generated through the internet, while also donations through it. This placement can guarantee a success in crowd-funding or elsehow raising money for a start-up company.
This placement is a rather good for Uranus; he feels quite free in this Scorpio/Pluto house. Due to the fact that the 8th house is an open gate towards… the infinite, Uranus enjoys the nonexistence of borders. Thus, he can operate rebelliously without being repressed by any type of restrictions. Except of course for a physical death; but is there anyone who will not pass this gate?
