The 8th house is one of the traditional gateways to the underworld, a cold wind comes through the cracks, we feel the presence of other beings, other energies, other realms. We may be obsessed or possessed, dependent or dominant, for this house is about the way we respond to what other people bring us. Planets here can attract people who are takers, who leave us drained, depleted and emptied out. Or they can be attractors of a different kind of energy, drawing in people and talents that help change our world. and others along with it.
