Chapter 30 –House of Longevity, Treasure and Other’s Money

The eighth house from the ascendant is called house of longevity, lottery, hidden things, and death, permanent enemy or disease, loss etc. These are the main things we can know from this house.
     If the lord of the eighth house is exalted or in own house or in friendly house then the above mentioned things would be favorable to the native. If debilitated or in enemy house then would get unfavorable results.
     In north Indian charts, the house next to the seventh house in anti-clockwise direction is eighth house. From the natural order of zodiac sign marked in the ascendant, we can derive which zodiac sign is eighth house. For example if the ascendant is marked with 4 then the eighth house would be Aquarius.
