The Houses of your Vedic chart...House 8

The eighth house is the 8th from ascendant when counted anti-clockwise. If the master of 8th house is present in exaltation or in own house, specially if in center (1,4,7,10) or in trine (1,5,9), it will give native good results. The 7th house is also called the Ayur Sthan (the house of your age/longevity). It concerns the native's birth and death. However, it does not necessarily mean actual physical death. It may be a symbolic death, and thus, it is synonymous with evolution and transformation. This house also represents inheritances, money earned by other people, but also sexuality, power, all things hidden, and interest in occultism.

The 8th house mostly signifies the following:

1. Longevity or age of the native; in-laws.
2. Interest in Occult Sciences such as Astrology, Yoga, Chakra Healing and Kundalini Yoga. 
3. Inheritance, legacy, will.
4. Misery, misfortune, sorrow, loss, theft, robbery, disappointment
5. Obstruction to flow of life, material prosperity and mental well-being.
6. Mostly 4 and 5 happen if the Lord of eighth is afflicted and weak.
7. If the Lord of eighth is strong, it will give long age to the native and opposite of 4 and 5.
8. External genitalia, anal orifice, chronic diseases
9. Sudden ups and downs, surgeries, death and rebirth, government taxes, secret and hidden things.

It is basically a difficult house as far as material aspects of life are concerned.  It helps native in general spiritual awakening. During the dasa, antardasa of the Lord of 8th house, you will see the above significations of 8th house, taking prominence in your life.
