What to do if I have Moon in 8th house?

Written By Addittya Tamhankar

All you should do is to ACCEPT the fact that your moon (MIND) is in the 8th house! ACCEPTANCE is the key. What is wrong about having moon in the 8th house? It is a wonderful position. It brings a certain depth of understanding to the native. It brings a certain experience of the unseen, the unknown, the beyond! 8th house moon if is NOT afflicted then it is a wonderful sign of spiritual progress. Osho Rajneesh had his MOON in the 8th house. My father (a famous journalist, novelist of his times) also had his Moon in the 8th house. My father had a very close contact with Osho. He had stayed with Osho for a couple of days. So there is NOTHING wrong about having MOON in the 8th house!

8th house is the very root of human life. The more the root goes deep – the more the tree grows on the outside!

You see – that is how it is. When your understanding grows, when your maturity reaches a certain depth – only then you truly grow as a person! Without a significant 8th house – only shallow men and shallow women are born. They just remain on the circumference – an ordinary life that has no substance – they will earn a few million dollars, drive a few luxury cars and then finally die like a beggar!

Those who have absolutely NO significant 8th house – belong to the class of beggars who drive Mercedes and live in palaces but in the Kingdom of God are nothing less then BEGGARS.

And then there are a few – Baba Nanak, Jesus, Buddha, Mahavira, and many more enlightened beings who had absolutely NO BANK BALANCE and yet they were the greatest EMPERORS that the world had ever known!

I love those who have a strong 8th house connection – then even if such a man – such a woman is lost – is misguided – is exploited – STILL some day they RISE – they TRANSFORM – the become the BUDDHA!

Always remember – BUDDHA is NOT a name. It is a Title. It is a STATE OF BEING. And in this VAST HUMAN WORLD – there is always someone out there who has become a BUDDHA and there will be many who someday will become the BUDDHA!

Transformation is the essence of 8th house. Freedom from bondage is the essence of 8th house. Learning the secrets of the underworld is the essence of 8th house. Attaining certain Siddhis is the essence of 8th house. Realizing the SELF is possible only through the depth of 8th house.

Without PAIN there is NO GAIN. So 8th house definitely brings pain in life but you all must remember that deepest valley exists only where the highest mountain exists!

Shallow people think of deep valleys – Wise people think about the peak of the mountain. Perspective matters – 8th house native is willing to dive – wiling to RISK everything to experience the peak of the mountain – he is aware that from the TOP the view is always beautiful. Wisdom itself has a strong connection with the 8th house – and nobody will tell you this my fellows – nobody – because to know the truth – you need to experience it – you need to be courageous!

Any planet in the 8th house, or any direct aspects to the 8th house or Ascendant lord in the 8th house – is a simple sign that the native has a certain depth of understanding – he or she is NOT shallow but a person who is going to go through certain transformations – which eventually will lead him or her to the ultimate TRUTH. The God Consciousness!

It is indeed a fact that most of them who are drawn towards me – have always had a significant 8th house placements! It always happens – you are drawn exactly towards that which also exists within YOU! The world is a all about vibrations. Partners fall apart – relationships break when your VIBRATIONS no more MATCH with the vibrations of your partner!

Yesterday Mohan said “I am shocked – my friend had a break-up – his girlfriend said “You are no more HOT” – “

I laughed loudly. Mohan said “Why you laughed – you laugh at strange moments.”

I said “Mohan – that was going to happen. Your friend was moving ahead – he had taken to meditation – he was raising the level of his vibrations – he was evolving whereas his girlfriend never took to meditation. She remained where she was – while you friend progressed in the true sense. When you move to 10th Grade and your friend remains in 1st Grade – you tell me – how can they CONNECT??”

Mohan smiled and said “I understand now. But why she says that HE is NO MORE HOT.”

I said “Because at the ordinary level LOVE is meant to be HOT. Even when people eat dog – they want HOT DOG. So what to say about LOVE! But as you grow – as you move to the higher realms of consciousness – your LOVE is no more that of HITLERs – your love is the love of BUDDHA – it is pure love – there is no sexuality in it. And Buddha’s love is always COOL – it cannot be HOT.”

And that is the whole essence of the 8th house – those who have been used to HOT LOVE – and HOT GIRL and HOT SEX – will never understand the LOVE of BUDDHA. Similarly shallow men and shallow women will NEVER understand the significance of the 8th house.

To realize the significance of the 8th house – you need to have a strong connection with the 8th house in your chart – only then can you understand the language of Buddha – only then can you understand the language of SILENCE.

This SILENCE is only to be found in the abode of the 8th house. Meditation happens here. Real communication happens in SILENCE – it happens only through the 8th house.

Love to all my readers. Stay blessed and remember to meditate every day.

Jai Shri Ganesha. Jai Guru.
