Rahu in Bhava 8

= 8th- from any lagna

= 8th-from Chandra

Rahu-8 = fraud of exaggeration of mystical, occult, secretly-empowered transformations

There is nearly always some degree of secrecy required in the lives of those who choose to be born with Rahu in bhava-8.

Emergency, risk

The ambitious, socially mobile path toward privilege is composed of erupting forces, masked mysteries, confidential information, hidden liaisons and dangerous secrets.

Rahu's hidden arrangements may be personal, reproductive [8] political, sexual, financial, political, even spiritual.

  • POTUS-pair-44 Let's Move 1964- Michelle Robinson Obama [visionary-conceptual Arudra-4] unexpected [8] complications in chemistry of child-conception pushed the young couple into IVF treatments.

Political Masque

  • POTUS-38 Time to Heal 1913-2006 Gerald R. Ford [Rahu-8 in political-demonstrating Andromeda-1] As a child, GRF lived under the veil of a falsified family identity. Famed for keeping secrets.

He authored the final assessment, stating that the commission found /no new information/ . The true circumstances of the national trauma have yet to be revealed.

Financial Masque

  • POTUS-36 Great Society 1908-1973 Lyndon Baines Johnson [Shukra-yuti-Rahu] = one of the most capitalized men in the USA during his term as POTUS-36. However, the true scope of LBJ's personal accounts was effectively hidden behind the culturally-masked executive director.

  • POTUS-37 Watergate 1913-1994 Richard Nixon [secretive-eruptive Uttarabhadra-4] Tax evasion.

  • The owner and chief of operations was his wife, Ladybird Taylor [Shukra]. In those days, it would have been nearly unthinkable for a southern woman to own-and-operate a highly profitable radio-television business cartel. When Senator Johnson sponsored legislation that was exceptionally favorable to radio-television companies in the American South, there was nary a whiff of suspicion that he was directly promoting his own personal profit.

  • POTUS-pair-01 tobacco 1731-1802 Martha Custis Washington [exhilarating Rahu in calculating Pūrvāṣāḍhā-2] MCW held political, commercial, and financial confidences of her husband's revolutionary military campaigns.

  • de Mundi Systemate 1643-1727 Isaac Newton [defensive-habitual Hasta-4] was not only the curator of the secrets of earth's physical laws. He was also a gay man who had to conduct his relationships partly in code. Homosexuality could be a death sentence in his era.

During Budha-Ketu bhukti, in the final paranoid months of his presidency, rMN surreptitiously recorded all Whitehouse West-Wing conversations - without the knowledge or permission of the people being taped. Nixon became obsessed with fantasized Invisible Enemies [Rahu-8 drishti into 12, and 12 owned/aspected by Chandra-6-Makara]. His paranoia rose to such a height that even at the end of extremely busy Chief Executive days, he secretly reviewed the tapes each night.

Gets involved with occult knowledge

Rahu + Chandra= sudden upheaval regarding the mother

Rahu + Surya = sudden upheaval regarding the father

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-8 = a very dicey but high-potential position which can result in

sudden unexpected transformation of identity

Danger and Discovery

Unlike inactive, witnessing Ketu in 8 which is overall a spiritually beneficial placement, rahu in 8 can represent a losing gamble with the dangers of sudden often violent and unexpected changes, specifically changes which initiate the Conditions of dematerialization.

Pretentious Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-8 = ambition to discover the hidden energetic forces which animate the unknown.

  • Theory of Relativity 1879-1955 Physics Albert Einstein [visionary-conceptual Uttarāṣāḍha-4] [uchcha-Kuja-yuti-Rahu] (8 explosions, sudden deadly force). AE discovered numerous phenomena of nature including the fourth dimension of physical reality

Craving for the "born again" experience

Renegade Rahu tries to trick and deceive The Conditions of dematerialization, using threats to life for His own instrumental purposes.

Devious Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-8 may be intrigued by tantrik promises of fleshly immortality and perhaps become fascinated by the privileges of empowerment through the dark forces.

In His arrogance, rahu may underestimate the true intensity of the dark force and the corresponding frailty of human defense against annihilation is not recognized until Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-8 has entered the inextricable vortex tunnel.

In compounded difficulties such as harsh drishti of Kuja to 8 and other hasteners, possibility of unintentional suicide and other outcomes resulting from the pichchala-karaka's slippery movement to trick the Conditions of dematerialization.

Excellent placement for

  • professions of masking, hiding, camouflage and disguise

  • high-risk work in volatile environments

  • double-agents and spies

A great desire to be recognized as a discoverer or transformative healer, although one has not yet earned the insight. Via Rahu's characteristic over-promotion, professor Rahu teaching in classroom-8 often gets into misguided tantric or confidential practices that are"over their head" .

  • Great Leap Forward via Discovery:Occult and Confidential knowledge, Hidden Assets, Emergencies

  • Discovery - recovery

  • Elevation through revelation

Two of her kids died in childhood and the other two died in their teens-twenties. In the seventh year of marriage, her husband suddenly died. MCW's second marriage (age 27) to George Washington was vastly more influential, represented by her Budha + Mangala + Surya + Ketu in bhava-2 on the Dhanus-Mithuna axis, contact Washington's Dhanus-Chandra. MCW is often accounted as a primary financial agent of the Revolutionary Army, albeit Rahu-8 keeps secrets and most of the 1770's transactions remain hidden.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-8 = passion for sudden upheavals and energy recycling; often amplifies the potency of activities conducted in secrecy; has agency to magnify the conditions of flesh-death

Common placement in the nativities of lifepartners of high-ranking officials. They keep secrets. They are the secret-ar-ies.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-8 = overinvested in catastrophe, upheaval, sudden unexpected force. The native is fascinated by disasters, emergencies, conspiracies, hidden threats. Unless corrected by lawful Shani, one may become an alarmist or terrorist who is preys upon the human fear of sudden change.

  • reconstruction, rennovation

  • knowledge of the conditions of death

Professor Rahu generally wants what He lawfully cannot have or socially should not have .

Pretentious Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-8 wishes to obtain the privileges accorded to those who attend Great Transformations.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-8 is a master of rejuvenation, resuscitation, emergencies, an energetic pursuer of trauma intervention , askillful manager of affairs conducted with Great Secrecy.

  • POTUS-pair-01 tobacco 1731-1802 Martha Custis Washington * Rahu-8-Dhauzya ideology * clandestine information exchanges. In possession of significant inherited wealth, martha was a secret agent . In an era when few men believed that women were capable of reasoning, her successful camouflage was much aided by her gender.

  • Standard Oil 1874-1960 philanthropy John D. Rockefeller inherited (8) the massively capitalized assets of his robber-baron industrialist father. Taxation (8) of this hoard was cleverly manipulated [Rahu] via undisclosed payments to US Congressmen, who re-arranged the federal tax code to favor the Rockefeller interests. JDR was Rahu-enabled to make magnificent charitable grants, entirely at his own elite [Mesha] discretion, with no concern for tax consequences.

Whatever distinction Rahuva obtains in the hungry question for recognition, He will never be satisfied.

Immediately upon obtaining the object of desire, rahu again yearns for more, better, different privileges given to the class of beings who show intensively transformative instincts, responsive movement in a state of terror, and rebirth during catastrophic change. Every day begins with renewed lust for this ephemeral prize.

Mesmerizing identity-changes

  • Standard Oil 1874-1960 philanthropy John D. Rockefeller * became a great agent of social transformation via access to undisclosed massive amounts of capital. JDR experienced an extreme change of identity when he abandoned directorship of Standard Oil and US Steel to pursue a life of shockingly ambitious philanthropy

As much as Rahu hungers for recognition by those who deal in conditions of emergency, terror, disaster, and threat to life, rahu is frustrated in the veiled, under-cover conditions of randhrasthāna. Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-8 can only be acknowledged secretly.

Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-8 often brings substantial inheritance, which Pretentious Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-8 wants to use as a catapult into higher privilege even while one tries to hide the money.

The Chosen

One wishes to feel specially "chosen" for a privileged role: permission to join elite secret societies and confidential knowledge reserves.

As the great taboo-breaker, rahu destroys customary moral boundaries and behavioral consistency

  • in the spouse's family (in-laws)

  • in the inheritance and shared marital assets

  • in mysterious affairs such as covert military invasions, uncovering ancient history, surgeries, birth and death,

  • tantrik yoga practices

  • in catastrophic emergence.

Les agents provocateurs represented by Professor Rahu teaching in classroom-8

The agent desires to obtain privileged experiences by"leapfrog" without having followed the conventional proving steps toward social approval of"mystery" (8 = exploration of the hidden, magical, occult).

Thus Rahu in 8 disturbs the credentialing process and existing orderly limits regarding

  • management of the joint assets of marriage,

  • handling sudden emergencies

  • discovery of hidden resources

  • secret money and confidential information

  • cycle of destruction and rebirth

  • relationship with in-laws

  • surgery disaster catastrophic change and sudden transformations

Depending on the strength of Rahu and Rahu's planetary lord, professor Rahu teaching in classroom-8 may suffer an passion for secrets.

  • Theory of Relativity 1879-1955 Physics Albert Einstein [imaginative-abstract ̄ṣāḍha-4] [uchcha-Kuja-yuti-Rahu] (8 explosions, sudden deadly force) had a secret, long-undiscovered first child, adaughter named Lieserl. She was born before his first marriage to the girl's mother.

  • AE discovered numerous secrets of the atomic level of terrestrial physics. He worked on secret weapons of mass destruction which resulted in the sudden and violent conditions of dematerialization for Nagasaki-Hiroshima in WWII. Einstein had scientific collaborators, but he would never reveal or acknowledge their contributions to his work.

Rahu is beneficial in bhava-8, but only for magical or tantric healings, such as surgery, and emergency intervention . Rahu in bhava-8 may bring inherited wealth , and surprisingly broad access to privileged information. Much hidden interaction with foreigners, exotic and secret world-power lineages (if in a regal sign) and a great attraction to situations involving catastrophic, forced, and sudden changes.
