Sun in the eighth shows that the middle period of life will be critical ; and if malefics afflict, danger of violent or sudden death. If well aspected, the life is prolonged and vitality increased. This position is liable to affect the heart. Death may occur through hereditary or constitutional weakness, or it may be an honourable death due to some self-sacrifice or heroic deed. If the Moon afflicts the Sun the eyesight may be affected, and the health is liable to be disturbed by malefic transits. If the Sun is afflicted there is some likelihood of the premature death of the father ; or of the husband, in a female horoscope : if well aspected, there may be money inherited from both these.
