Mars in the Eighth House

Category: 

Mars in the eighth house indicates a liability to a violent or sudden death. If much afflicted this is a very evil position, but Mars alone in this house will not kill the native, although the end whenever it comes will be sudden and after an illness of short duration or by shock or accident. It will be necessary to note the sign Mars occupies at birth : if a watery sign there is danger of death by drowning, if a fiery sign death by fire or violence, if an airy sign mental affliction ; when in an earthy sign Mars is not so evil. This position causes much trouble in connection with finance after marriage, either the partner is extravagant or wastes money foolishly.
