Asteroids in 8th House
Eros in the 8th House
The eighth house traditionally rules sex, death and taxes, and their transformational effects. It also pertains to depth analysis, research and occult knowledge. The eighth house rules things of mystery, intrigue and intensity. The thread that binds the eighth house scenery together consists of elements in life that require us to make a leap of faith, to take a risk and discover the unknown within. There are no guarantees in the eighth and no way to be sure that once we make a commitment to intimacy, a belief system or a political party, that the implicit trust will be honored.
Eros in the eighth suggests an affinity with the purpose of the house: to take risks, to offer up something precious, to feel to the depths of the soul and to hope for transformation in return. Those with Eros in this house have an increased desire to experience the erotic on a very deep level of their existence. They may also have a highly increased fear around doing so. The two can go hand in hand.
Juno in the 8st House
If you have Juno in the eighth house you are not going to bother with a partner who is not good in bed. Sex is the most important thing to you. One of your drawbacks is that you objectify others sexually. You also tend to judge people by your looks. You are also very possessive of your partner and prone to obsession and jealousy in any relationship. As you are so ruled by your groin, you are also more likely to be unfaithful than most. Celebrities with this placement of Juno include a lot of Hollywood sex gods and goddesses including Uma Thurman, Marilyn Monroe,Christina Aguilera, Gwyneth Paltrow, Michael Douglas and Charlotte Rampling. If Juno is in your ninth house you will need to connect with apartner who is spiritual. You won’t marry anyone that you don’t feel in your gut and heart is not a soul mate.
Vertex in the 8th House
Indicates an internal yearning for an inseparable union with and total commitment from another, come what may. This need is so intense that we may fantasise all manner of unspeakable actions and reactions if the final dream, once attained, is even threatened. The dark side is that when the reality of our partner does not fit this model (and it rarely does totally) we have a difficult time adjusting if faced with a breach of contract of any sort. Once badly hurt there is a tendency to become jaded and guarded in future relationships, thereby passing up the opportunity to explore interactions which might just fulfill out intense needs perfectly.
