Om Grinih Suryaya Namah
in Randhra Bhava- 8
Sun in the 8th house
splendid placement for the politics of mysteries, emergencies, secret sources of power, hidden wealth, taxes
Seeks a central position within masked, occluded environments.
Radiates charismatic light from the brilliant center of mystery.
Admired hub personality within occult practice societies, secret knowledge holders, those who control confidential information, disaster-managers, financiers protecting hidden treasure, participants in covert relationships, managers of tax-shelters, medecins who perform surgeries, military strategists who conduct invasions, monitors of eruptions, deployers of poison and extreme, unexpected force.
Surya in swabhava of Ravi's good friend Mangala radiates moving, hot-blooded (Kuja) personal charisma(Surya) into mystical, transformative activities such as:
Surya's brilliant light permits one to "see" into the unknown, the secret, the mysterious, the esoteric, the masked, cloudy, reclusive, occluded and occult
One exists in the dramatic center of :
mystery, secrecy, sudden changes, covert operations, occult knowledge, confidential information, hidden money, inheritances and legacies, conditions of death, emergencies and disasters, eruptions and emergence, secret pleasures, healing transformations.
The partner's family may contain dramatists, politicians, or celebrities. The partner's family may express entitlement to a great deal of attention.
Whether more specialized toward money, knowledge, or pleasure depends upon rashi, drishti, and co-tenants of bhava-8.
Surya is surprisingly happy in Kuja's swabhava (presuming the rashi is supportive) - yet naturally this placement is not good for the father, .
Matters of Surya's temporal house may be destroyed
One finds a central position in the drama of shock-based behaviors, matters of catastrophic change, emergence of the hidden, disaster, destruction-and-rebirth, surgery, healing transformation, Revelation, Rebirth, and trauma.
Splendid position for those handling secret information which may have catastrophic consequences either for individuals or for the world
Although the personal life is not easy, one may emerge into the world theatre as an agent of forced social transformation.
To have Ravi's portfolio radically, even catastrophically, destroyed during the lifetime is indeed a good thing for Meena lagna and Kanya lagna, where Surya is L-6 and L-12 .
For Meena lagna and Kanya lagna = Viparita Raja Yoga. Surya in randhra-sthana = a boost up - esp. for Kanya lagna where major obstacles from Ari-sthana, such as enemies, debts, and disease, are neatly destroyed.
For other lagna except Meena and Kanya, results will be mixed: prevents the karaka traits of Surya from manifesting; e.g., destroys fame, dampens self-confidence, reduces leadership power and harms the self-image. Does not disturb wealth, favors legacy and inheritance. Helps professions in healing arts and secret traditions, helps attorneys managing the affairs of the dead, and all involved in occult or tantra.
One seeks praise and recognition as a Revealer.
Surya-8 = secret knowledge of mysteries and shamanic tools of death-and-rebirth cycles of destruction.
One may become most famous (Surya) for matters connected to the Conditions of death .
|Conditions of Death||
Conditions of Death
The flesh body is killed by agency of the rashi governing bhava-8, drishti to bhava-8, and by karaka Surya:
Surya-8 = professionally concerned with hidden or confidential matters; surgeries and emergencies; mysterious, occult, or clandestine environments in which secret assets are collected (including valuable secret knowledge).
Surya-8 generally knows a great deal more than might appear at the surface.
Ego-identity in public life = reduced, or becomes problematic, as Surya the Bright Light of Truth must shine out from the house of hidden forces and catastrophic change.
As the native hides oneself from public view. Depending on Surya's house lordship, the native could be powerful socially, but one's involvement in powerful activities is largely veiled.
the native does not wish to be ego-identified with the confidential or occult materials that one is indeed handling. Ethical conflict caused by secrecy or ego-association with mysterious knowledge may result in moral crisis. Matters of Surya's house are obscured.
Atma-karaka in bhava-8 = similar to Surya in bhava-08
Ravi is at home here in Kuja's Bhava, despite the less favorable prognosis for the father/guru.
Surya in bhava-08 indicates a high calling in one of the healing arts, surgery, midwifery, disaster response, investigating detective, or secret finance.
However the native 's activities may never reach public visibility. Even the portion of their dealings which is known to the public may be small like the tip of an iceberg. One may be working in the service of shrouded interests, able to reveal only a little of what one knows.
One is called to bring secret information, tantric arts buried in the dust of ages, and above all healing energies to the surface of human conscious through philosophical reasoning.
Excellent therapists are found with this position, as well as investigators into negative levels of secrecy such as criminal corruption.
Surya-8 may bear sole responsibility for making high-impact judgments and decisions using their own intelligence. Their choice may affect the life of individuals, or the future of nations.
Das / Behari says of Surya in 8:
"In general, the Sun in this house makes you lean and thin, mentally obtuse, disliked and abandoned by relations.
But if the zodiacal sign is supportive, the solar influence here may lead to much interest in spirituality or the process of initiation.
The Sun of the 8th house is mostly malefic, as it is posited in a bad house.
