First Understand the secrets of the 8th house and then I will explain how to associate with Rahu, and make the best out of that devil.
What does the 8th House Indicate
The 8th house represents occult, mysticism, surgery, hidden knowledge, secrecy, joint secrets, spouse family and assets, insurance, inheritance, wills, and stocks.
This is the house of life, death, and major transformation. Hence when Rahu is in the 8th house, it will keep you intact with the affairs of family inheritance, spouse family, secrecy, hidden information, and research.
The 8th house also gives Nij Dosha, which means a person will face consequences due to self-generated issues. This happens when a person takes an illegal approach in life. Then the 8th house gives the worst results. And this happens when the 8th house dasha is activated.
Rahu gives intuition and sudden inspiration. This usually gives ideas in flashes, perhaps this idea if given a meaningful track, and you put a lot of effort into it, then it will surely give success.
But if there is cloudiness in your thoughts, then the idea will behave like a ‘smoke’. It will create confusion, in front of you. This will result in disappointments and Psychological imbalances.
Rahu in 8th House: Good Impact
When you have Rahu in the 8th house, you actually have a natural attraction towards knowing the unknown, and experiencing the supernatural but if one is not associated with Gurus and mentors who have the expertise, then Rahu can distract you from getting the best from the 8th house.
The natural zodiac of the 8th house is the Scorpio Rashi, therefore one can experience supernatural or ghostly events. You might have a keen interest in Tarot, Astrology, and Tantra. But so many people have Rahu in the 8th house, does it mean everyone will have an interest in occult science?
If Rahu is in a water sign and since water is the energy of the past, so it will surely take the path of enlightenment and spiritual awakening. You also will go through a major transformation in life. Rahu wants you to experience the unknown, like alien, ghostly experience, kundalini, and kriya yoga.
Now here is the secret…
Rahu will give interest in occult science, only if your education houses are linked with the 8th house. Then Rahu’s position here states that this life’s attention will be on knowing the unknown. So if the 4th 5th or 9th lord is linked with Rahu then it gives the best results in exploring the hidden knowledge. And then one is busy with research work linked with astrology, tarot cards, or even Vastu shastra.
Rahu in 8th House: Bad Impact
Rahu in the 8th house gives bad results if there are other planets in the 8th house that are linked with the 6th house, that is disease or badhak or marak houses. Now in this case Rahu is given the role to give illness, pain, and chronic diseases. And due to this, his energy is stuck in handling health issues. And when one is dis-ease, then it makes Rahu a real devil. Because here Rahu will give sudden and strange health issues. Especially if the transit Saturn also is also making bad combinations.
Effects of Rahu in 8th House: Disease or Death
As you know 8th house in a horoscope depicts pain, struggle, obstacles, sickness, and surgery. Even sudden events and transformation is given by this house. And when we talk about diseases chronic illness, long-term diseases, and surgeries can be expected if along with Rahu, the 8th lord Dasha is active.
So what if Rahu an unknown and unpredictable planet takes the position. Not to forget Rahu does not have any physical body, there is only a dragon’s head, so perhaps it can confuse you when it comes to diseases. This means difficulty in the diagnosis of the disease.
Saturn is the karaka of the 8th house and Mars is the 8th lord of the natural zodiac. Rahu’s position actually complicates the health condition. Saturn gives long-term illness and Mars adds pain to the problem. Rahu truly explodes the energy of its house position.
In my experience Rahu’s position makes the person ignore the illness and when it becomes severe, it had become a chronic ailment. Then the person realizes his negligence. The reason is that Rahu makes you commit mistakes and then you transform and move towards higher goals.
Rahu in 8th House for Marriage
Rahu in the 8th house for marriage and relationships is generally considered a bad position. Though the other factors need equal consideration, especially the sign lord and star lord should support this negative position.
But since this is the house of Longevity of your spouse (The Mangalya Bhav). Therefore if Rahu a Mayavi planet takes this position, then the house results will be afflicted.

Besides, this is the house of pain, obstacles, and chronic illness. And this is the 2nd house of your partner, so speech, money, and family, will have an abnormality in its results.
Now let’s discuss Rahu’s unforeseen effects. First of all, it will create emotional and psychological disturbances, due to disputes and enmity with in-laws.
And this resentment will further manifest as a chronic disease, which will not be diagnosed easily. Rahu here has the power to separate you from your partner either emotionally or physically ill-health, or through separation, or no marriage, or the untimely death of a partner.
This is also the house defame and humiliation, therefore you might have to face such events. Overall such marriages need to develop a let-go attitude and learn the art of saving relationships. Else it can separate the couple due to ego, pride, and arrogance.
Rahu in 8th House for Finance/ Career

Here Rahu will give career related to researchers, detectives, factory owners, computer programmers, insurance agents, and writers of mystery novels.

Rahu in 8th House: Aspects and its Effects
Rahu when in the 8th house aspects the 12th house which is the house of hidden talent, spiritual organization, isolation, hospital, jail, and expenditures. Therefore Rahu energy will highlight some events related to this house.
Then it aspects the 2nd house, your savings, speech, family, and food. So if Rahu is making relation with this house then it brings ups and downs, suddenness, and against social norms things in your finance sector.

Rahu shows past life Karma
To analyze past life, the 8th house plays a major role. And if there are strong raj yogas, then due to past life good karmas or deeds you enjoy the inheritance. And this makes a major transition in the status. But if there are afflictions or curses linked instead to Rajyogas, then your whole life can be full of conflict.
The tension means, a life void of pleasure and comfort. But I would suggest such individuals, change their life routine as per Rahu’s significations. I believe the only way to minimize the effect of evil is to focus on spirituality and do a selfless activity daily.
Result of Rahu in 8th House for 12 Signs/Lagna
If you are an Aries Lagna, then Rahu in the 8th house will be in the Scorpio sign. This is a watery sign and represents mysticism, secrecy, and other hidden elements. Now if we see the 8th house also represents unforeseen and surprising elements. Mars’s position and Rahu nakshatra will speak about the results of Rahu in the Scorpio sign in the 8th house. In Mars Dasha, Rahu will activate the 8th house, in a strange and mysterious way.
Thus if we join all together the 8th house energy becomes very strong. Now if Dukhsthana is strong, it gets the potential to influence your life. If a person is involved with 8th house projects, then he can surely bring transformation in himself and society. This is a positive aspect of Rahu. Else, 8th house energy can counterattack a person in its way, and trick through chronic illness. Or confuse a person, by creating fake views and cloudiness in his thoughts and actions. Then it behaves like a negative Rahu.
If you are a Taurus Lagna, then Rahu in the 8th house will be in the Sagittarius sign. This is a fiery sign and represents your goals and vision for expansion. Jupiter is the lord of Sagittarius, so in Jupiter Dasha, Rahu 8th house will draw the higher knowledge energy to some hidden or deep research-oriented subjects.
In my view, if Jupiter is related to Rahu, then it can make one very futuristic in attaining higher knowledge. Jupiter expands its energy and Rahu explodes. So Jupiter’s and Rahu’s nakshatra’s position becomes extremely important. If there is affliction then Rahu takes its negative form and can give incurable diseases. But if positive, Rahu can help one grow into a very influential motivational speaker.
If you are a Gemini Lagna, then Rahu in the 8th house will be in the Capricorn sign. This is an earthy sign and represents your work and career. Saturn and Rahu nakshatra’s position will decide the results of Rahu. And if Saturn is posited in Kendra, and no afflictions then Rahu gives good results.
Here good results of the 8th house will be your spouse’s money and inherited wealth. But if Saturn is weak or with enemies, then Rahu will start working on lower levels. The lower principles take towards NIJ Dosha. And this means self-created problems related to the position of Saturn in the horoscope.
If you are a Cancer Lagna, then Rahu in the 8th house will be in the Aquarius sign. This is an airy sign and also the co-ruler of Rahu. The Aquarius lord Saturn and Rahu’s star position decide the main results. But Rahu is very comfortable in his own house. So if the dukhsthana devil is strong, he will proceed to divert you from higher goals. And deviate your energy to chronic diseases and pains.
This can give material gains, but for health, one has to be careful. Rahu has no physical body, so it can make one greedy and obsessive related to 8th house things now if attention is on forbidden things then Rahu can give instability, restlessness, and sudden humiliations related to 8th house events.
When you are a Leo Lagna, then Rahu in the 8th house will be in the Pisces sign. This is a watery sign and is ruled by Jupiter. Jupiter and Rahu’s nakshatra position will speak about the results of Rahu in the 8th house.
In Pisces, the 3 nakshatras are Purva Bhadrapada – Jupiter, Uttarbhadrapada – Saturn, and Revati – Mercury. Now if Rahu is in Saturn star which is the 6th lord, then it will give diseases related to Saturn. And if any other planet is conjunct or aspecting, then it means, all these planets are associated with Rahu to give long-term illness.
Being in the Pisces sign, Jupiter’s position will decide the main results of Rahu. And if Jupiter aspects 8th house then it will expand Rahu’s energy in this disease house.
If Jupiter is PAC with 6th house – disputes, diseases, or 12th house – disappointments. Then during the Rahu and Jupiter dasha one can face sudden diseases and disappointments. But if positive houses are associated then Rahu can give you popularity and recognition.
If you are a Virgo Lagna, then Rahu in the 8th house will be in the Aries sign. This is a fiery sign and Mars is the lord of this sign. So Mars and Rahu nakshatra’s position will decide the results of Rahu in the 8th house. Here Mars PAC with enemy planets will make Rahu work on the material goals. Then in Mars Dasha, Rahu’s 8th house negative results will give sudden disturbing and painful events.
If you are a Libra Lagna, then Rahu in the 8th house will be in the Taurus sign. This is an earthy sign and Venus is the lord of this sign. Now Venus and Rahu nakshatra’s position will speak about the results of Rahu in the 8th house. Rahu does not have a physical body, so it takes the body of the planet’s conjunct, sign, and its nakshatra for directions in life.
And these planets can either show the direction towards depression and diseases or towards the hidden treasure of the 8th house. Venus is a planet of relationship and luxury, so Rahu will expand Venus’s aspirations through self-efforts – 1st house and 8th- hidden and sudden form to gain money.
If you are a Scorpio Lagna, then Rahu in the 8th house will be in the Gemini sign. This is an airy sign and Mercury governs this sign. Now Mercury and Rahu nakshatra position will state the results of Rahu in the 8th house. Mercury is the 11th and 8th lord, so Upachaya Bhav is linked with Rahu. Therefore material gains can be made, but for health, one has to be careful, as, for Scorpio, Mercury is a functional malefic planet.
If you are a Sagittarius Lagna, then Rahu in the 8th house will be in the Cancer sign. This is a water sign and Moon governs this sign. Now Moon and Rahu nakshatra position will decide the good and bad results of Rahu in the 8th house. Rahu in a watery sign awakens intuitive abilities. So here one should use those skills in spreading knowledge and ideologies, as this is the purpose of the Sagittarius sign. Then Rahu will give the best results. But if Moon is afflicted then Rahu will increase moon-related health issues.
If you are a Capricorn Lagna, then Rahu in the 8th house will be in the Leo sign. This is a fire sign and Sun is the lord of this sign. Now Sun position and Rahu nakshatra position will state the results of Rahu in the 8th house. Here one should keep in mind that Rahu can show the direction of entertainment through strange means.
