Re: Gemini in 8th house = Fame?

Gemini in the 8th would likely mean you have Leo on the 10th, Leo being the domicile of the Sun, which is associated with being visible/seen.

Does this mean Scorpio Rising = fame? Not necessarily.

Fame for what? Being a serial killer? A great book? Making a fool of oneself on YouTube?

A sign/house placement is too broad because 1/12 of the multiple billions of people would all be famous.

There are many factors.

If we're talking about math, it's not necessarily 1/12 considering there are not an equal amount of births happening in a day spread among each 2 hours. You could have 500 newborns from 12am-2pm and 5 newborns from 6pm-8pm. And yep, it's dumb to think that a single sign placement in a house gives you fame. Depends on a lot of things.

There's more to delineation of FAME than simply 8th House Gemini

If you are interested to research your own chart
then these are the traditional guidelines for
RANK OF FAME

I will try here to discuss all the methods of which I'm aware.
I will start from a mix of medieval astrology method of seeing the Rank of Fame with that of Ptolemy,
and than in some other post I will present some of the Hellenistic methods.



1. First we look at the Sun
,
if it is in 10th or 11th house.
In lasser degree fame is indicated also by Sun being in 1st, 4th and 7th.
Sun in aspect to the MC brings fame.
Sun in succedent house and especially if it is aspecting the MC can brings fame.

This is the general indicator.
It doesn't necessarily means that if you have Sun in 10th, you will be famous
.
Sun is analogous for Fame, so there fore we first start examining the Sun.



The Sun in 5th cuts the fame in half (except when it is in 5th).
Sun in 5th indicates success in arts and entertainment fields.


Sun's aspects are very important.
Afflicted Sun by some hard aspect with strong malefic may bring infamy.



Sun's dispositor and its relationship to the Sun is also very important.
The dispositor will show the origin of the fame of the native.


The dispositor of MC and its Almuten as well the aspects to the MC,
will show for what will the native gain fame,
because MC represents the native's actions.


Ok, lest try this first rule of examining the rank of fame with some practical example.




Here's the chart of Brad Pit.
We can see that the Sun is angular on the AC.
This is the first indication of success.
The Sun in Sag has honor as triplicity ruler.
The ruler of Sun (its dispositor), also its Almuten is the Strong Jupiter in 4th - angular, in a sign in which is having honor of triplicity.
Divisor of the Sun (Term ruler) is Venus which makes trine to the MC with the Moon - the native will be noticed by Women.

To add:
Sun is ruler of the Lot of Fame in 28Leo.
Moon (aspecting trine to MC with Venus) is ruler of the Lot of Success in Cancer.
The Sun is not impeded by bad aspect of Malefic.
It is in Trine relationship with Jupiter and in mutual reception (Sun by exaltation in Aries).
Sun is in aspect to MC. The thing that the aspect is square does not impede the rank of fame.

As we can see, the chart of Brad Pit is having many testimonies of this first rule of the Rank of Fame.
We will examine the other methods in my next post.

Interesting post!

I also have this placement, however, Hollywood aren't knocking the door down for me!

Incarnating with Scorpio rising (which I'm assuming you have) brings a unique set of lessons relative to your own circumstances, but dealing with fame isn't guaranteed to be one of them. Any 8th house sign may have to deal with fame and all of them likely have in our long history.

Astrology usually rewards abstract analysis. If any definition is too concrete, it will alienate many who share the same sign/aspect/house. Consider the traditional meanings of Gemini and the 8th house:

The 8th house, Scorpio's house, represents sex, death, relationships, intensity, inheritance, tax, etc. - what it all points to is deep interpersonal engagements and power dynamics. If this house is handled in the style of Gemini, you could see people who are wishy-washy or capricious with all of the above, or people who are interested in exercising their intellect on the above (sex, inheritance) to gain power. Mercury is a lightning-quick and androgynous planet, so bisexuality* or promiscuity are other interpretations. Another possibility is that Gemini's probing mind sets to work on the mysteries of sex and death - or simply becomes obsessed with both. On another level, Scorpio's transcendent energies could push Gemini's natural inquisitiveness to seek higher truths and deep knowledge.

As you can see, there are many variables. It would probably be best for you (if you have the interest!) to learn some astrological theory and analyse these placements relative to your own situation and the rest of your natal chart.

However, this wouldn't be a bad placement for a celebrity! Mercurial energy exploding in Scorpio's domain would likely make for interesting headlines, unique ideas for art or a captivating performer/presence on camera.

Best wishes!

* -- True in my case.
