On first sight, I couldn’t relate anything to Moon in 8th. There was no death, no nothing. On scrutiny of everything that I had done when the Moon was transiting in the 8th, I realized that those themes did come up even they seem like everyday life which are pretty routine to me.
To summarise Deborah Houlding’s book, the 8th represents:
- Death, loss and decay
- Things associated with the deceased e.g. inheritance, wills
- Other people’s money e.g. loans, partner’s money, taxes, loans, debts
- Fears, insecurity or anxiety
And transformations in modern astrology.
I came across death and loss by watching Crimewatch, a Irish TV programme that features crimes committed in Ireland. There was nothing relating to the deceased. I was checking the deadlines for filing annual returns and tax returns for Irish companies. I thought of a horrible day where I asked the cosmos whether I should continue with astrology (and I thought the answer is no).
