Never moved at all until I was 18. Mom and I... well, I think the problem all along has been that we're too much alike! Both of us have very fiery charts, and it shows. But there's love.

My mom always was very strong on encouraging independence (go away to camp at 9? Sure!) and playing in the dirt (her attitude: you can wash off dirt, but you can't wash off not having the experience). Could be volatile and moody, too, and sometimes took it out on me.

She also encouraged all her kids to read, just as a matter of fact. We went to the library every week. Thinking of the scary story kick: my parents had very firm rules about what I was allowed to watch as a child--no violence, absolutely--but no restriction at all on reading. If the library had it and they let you check it out, it was fine.

I've never known him to express the attitude that life had dealt him an unfair hand. He's not the kind of person who walks around with a chip on their shoulder, not at all. But there was some pretty tragic stuff involving his parents. My grandmother had a history of mental illness that I didn't know about until I was a teenager (and she was dying of dementia), and my grandfather was killed in a freak accident when Dad was 19.

In general, my dad is the kind of person who internalizes burdens. (I see this as an adult, but I don't think I would've picked up on it as a child.) My siblings and I have an understanding that we've got to be careful what we tell Dad and when, if it's bad news, because he worries so much.

I never thought of that, but it's plausible.

Edited to add: I'm the oldest of three, and the only one with an eighth house sun. Both my siblings have fifth house suns. If I'm the one whose chart shows sun in the eighth--trauma for Dad--does that perhaps mean I'm the one it's passed down to? Or perhaps, since I'm the firstborn, it was especially raw when I came along? My birth meant my parents became parents for the first time... so any fears they had about having children would've been up.

And then, I was born prematurely. The doctors immediately whisked me off to intensive care. I imagine that worried my parents a lot.

No, and I never tried to. If I had gotten pregnant, I probably would've wanted the baby, but I've never felt any very strong compulsion to be a mother. A bit of revulsion, actually--not to children themselves, but to the kind of role that's expected of mothers, especially when their kids are little. If I were to adopt a child or acquire a stepchild, I would be perfectly happy for it to be a school age kid, and skip the baby stage.

Heck, even my pets have always been full grown when I adopted them. I get the joy of having a cat without having to deal with a hyper kitten tearing the house apart.

Re: Eighth house of horrors: growing into it?

But I will make this observation though. My 8th house didn't really begin taking effect in my life until I was about 30-35. Prior to that my life was focused on 10th and 7th house issues and had no idea all that existed.

I didn't even know there was this part of me. It was like there was a hidden depth that was unexplored, but I never quite imagined or knew it was there.

After 30-35, things gradually unfolded. It feels like an entire world opened up...more like a fascinating, deep abyss opened up all of a sudden...and I never knew it was there.

Considering that the ruler of my 7th, 10th, and my actual NN are in the 8th, I am really, really surprised it took this long to get to this point.

I don't know if it has to do with progressions, life time period, transit, etc...and I never looked into the cause. But you can take this experience for what its worth.

In what way did your eighth house start taking effect?

Re: Eighth house of horrors: growing into it?

Off the top of my head...
  • Realizing I had deep emotions. It all sort of just bursted out all of a sudden.
  • Deeper comprehension of astrology.
  • Realizing I may have latent psychic abilities. Never paid attention to this.
  • Realizing my mind worked in a different way than others. I was honestly terrible at school compared with peers, and did “well” by memorization and using lots of systems. It always took twice as long for me to get the same results, so I thought I was just naturally unintelligent compared to everyone else. Finally realized my mind was deep in certain areas and was more suited to problem solve by independent investigation.
  • Interest in spirituality, death, reincarnation concepts, meditation, energy medicine, natural health, magick and consider all as a vast candy store unexplored...

But still, no interest in horror.

I think this may be happening because of your NN in the eighth. I've been told (though not on this site) that the north node and its house usually start being particularly noticeable in the native's life when they get within shouting distance of 40. Early to mid thirties is a bit younger, but still within the age range that it could be a newly activated north node.

My first interest in astrology kicked in when I was in my early thirties. I have my NN in Scorpio, eleventh house (not eighth, so the north node kicking in isn't my reason for interest in horror--besides, I was only 11!), so we could read some NN into that--but I think the real astrological trigger is that my Venus, which rules my fifth and tenth houses and is retrograde natally, went direct by progression at that time. No progressed planets changed direction when I was 11, though.

At that time, someone read my chart and said I was involved with spiritual groups and probably a teacher. That sounded so foreign to me, like they were talking about a stranger. I said so, and they double checked my birthdate and said they were looking at my north node, and what it indicates would probably kick in around 40.

Ten years later, that sounds more like me, though not quite.

Re: Eighth house of horrors: growing into it?

I am a Scorpio with a strong 8th house. Sag is on the cusp of my 8th, but I have a triple conjunction of Moon/Chiron/Mars in Cap in the 8th.

I have never liked horror movies. I am super sensitive to them and cannot watch them. I avoid them like the plague.

HOWEVER, I am obsessed with true crime mysteries and murder trials. I follow missing person cases and murder cases daily on another forum.

And how are you defining horror movies? Are you thinking of the blood and guts and jump scares kind?

My kind of horror is along the lines of Coraline or The Witch. More dark fantasy than jump scare, much more psychological thriller than overt violence. I don't like the Nightmare on Elm Street or Friday the 13th kind of horror at all.

Re: Eighth house of horrors: growing into it?

Anyone with a 8th house sun/moon and 4th house Pluto in Libra - something to do with death and medical problems - is a horror feature for anyone's natal charts. Then I have my ruling planet Uranus (Im an Aquarius) in Scorpio. And finally, the morbid black moon Lilith conjunct Saturn, Jupiter and Mars in 3rd.

Re: Eighth house of horrors: growing into it?

Hmm, my baby sister has an 8th house Cancer sun. I haven't noticed anything peculiar about her, but then again, we come from an odd and generally Plutonian/Martian/Scorpionic family as it is

She has a dark sense of humor and often jokes about death. I don't know the deeper goings on in her mind. My mom and I have both had interests in the occult and much darker aspects of life so I'm sure it's also there in our genes. She is a bit of a rebel and likes to watch things she shouldn't, but I get the feeling it's for the pure thrill of feeling like a rebel rather than deeper interest at this point

For me I have Mars ruling my 8th house with Aries so I guess it's at home there and then I have mars in my 1st house. I don't think that makes me any more Plutonian or Scorpionic or 8 house oriented tho, but that's just something I'm adding

I'm mainly interested in reading this thread for my baby sister, tho. She's 12. She also has Scorpio rising. I don't have any worries about her so far. She's a very emotional person, but she externalizes it more than I ever did so I think she's better off


I don't like to view the 8th house as the house of horrors, as some house to be avoided or wary of . I think every house has its possible horrors and graces. 8th house rules more than just horrors after all

Oh, I agree. When I titled this thread "eighth house of horrors," I was being rather tongue-in-cheek. Referencing the (potential) connection between me being an eighth house native and my love of horror fiction of the psychological and supernatural ilk. Not saying the eighth house is nothing but horror.

If my baby sister has this placement, sun in the 8th, do you think there's anything i should watch out for in her? As mentioned, she has a Scorp rising, but not much other major influence from Pluto

Watch out for in her? What do you think she is, the Antichrist? Are you looking for signs?

I imagine she has a certain intensity in her life. Which, obviously, runs in the family.

With the combination of Scorpio rising and sun in the eighth, though, she is probably a very private person. You might not ever know what's going on for her, not because she necessarily wants to keep it from you, but just because she wants to keep it private. Her intensity may be a private intensity.

Another strong likelihood with an eighth house sun is that she'll choose a line of work that serves others and/or is psychological/spiritual in nature. Maybe she'll be a psychologist, or a social worker, or a teacher. Maybe join the clergy, if she belongs to a religion where that would be feasible. Maybe she'll be a writer or a movie producer (eighth house connection to the collective unconscious, folklore, archetypes). Maybe she'll be an astrologer (eighth house suns produce a greater share of astrologers than the general population would account for).

No no no, I mean pain. And she's a very expressive girl emotionally actually. Water seeps through. As does the fire moon lol. I think it's a good thing though

On the contrary, I was always private and internalized

There's intensity... she's often called dramatic. Unlike me she has no qualms crying in front of people

But I can see her interest in the darkness, in death, the taboo...With her Leo moon, she's an artist but so far this interest hasn't shown in her art

The odd thing is thatI'm a Scorpio sun/Merc in my Draconic chart with Cancer ruling my 8th

Well, eighth house is a sensitive placement. There's a discussion somewhere around here about eighth house sun people experiencing both a lot of suffering and a lot of empathy.

If she's that emotionally expressive, you're likely to know it if she's in pain. If she has a very strong water chart, particularly if that strong water chart includes a water rising sign, she's likely to feel everything intensely.
