Note to self – putting the dreary meanings of the 8th house aside, it also represents your partner’s resources, not just money. Think possessions, physical objects that you own. For instance,the recent solar eclipse was in Scott’s 8th house. On the day of the eclipse, Scott’s partner received a pass on his car safety check on the first go for the first time in his life! On the same day, he also had a money making opportunity and also won 3 stars on Winning Streak, an Irish scratch card game.
Interestingly, for Scott’s solar return this year, the Sun is in the 8th. So, it seems that the next 6 months or so would be an important time for Scott and his partner’s resources.
