Moon in the 8th House Summary

This position gives an innate sincerity and attitude to hidden forces acting individually or collectively that may be expressed as the ability to sense evolving social developments, especially the elusive economic or business trends.

However, it is possible that people with the Moon in the 8th house may at times be confused or “mastered” by powerful subconscious forces that capture and obsess them.

As children, they are extremely sensitive to the halftones in the home environment, especially the deeper feelings, moods and the mother’s feelings of helplessness, which she may still “carry” within herself.

Adulthood relationships will reawaken earlier emotional patterns and Moon in the 8th house people have to delve into the past in order to reveal the roots of these problems.

An early experience related to sex or death is likely to severely affect these people’s character. Sex or intimacy is often perceived as a means of emotional security or as a way to forget the struggles in the world. The Moon in the 8th house placement is usually extremely responsive to the sexual or emotional needs of the partner and the person will probably not find it difficult to adjust to them.

Very often Moon in the 8th house people have a natural ability to help others find a greater sense of self-worth and value. They can literally “take care” of other people’s money or support others during periods of trauma and transition.

If the Moon is afflicted, they can experience intensely frustrating divorces and break-ups, filled with traumatic events and anxiety anxiety, although in such breakdowns and crises one can discover unconscious forces and inner power.

At a more earthly level, there is the possibility of inheriting land or property, most likely through the mother or partner.

The planet that governs our instinctive reactions and experiences is located in a house where intuition, emotions and deep unconscious attitudes are strongly emphasized.

This is why people with their Moon in the 8th house have a very strong ‘sixth sense’.

This is especially true for those, whose astrological chart is very much dominated by Scorpio, Pluto or Neptune. The psychic abilities in question can be used instinctively (Moon) in order to manipulate and control the partner (as far as the 8th house is ruled by Scorpio) in order to achieve security and stability (Moon), both materially (Scorpio) and emotionally (Moon).

This of course does not mean that every individual with this placement is a cunning manipulator, constantly making plans to seize the material possessions and free will of their partner. However, since we are talking about the Moon, we should not forget that its energy manifests itself quite spontaneously, casually, and instinctively.

Furthermore, the other keywords for the Moon are safety and security, so when this celestial body falls into the 8th house of the material possessions of other people (and especially the partner), there is a high probability that these two characteristics will be connected as one whole.

Moon in the 8th House Talents

The Moon by definition gives certain psychic abilities and talents of a medium. This is especially true when it falls into one of the water houses, such as the 8th house of Scorpio. With the Moon in this house, people have an innate ability to recognize the hidden motives of others.

If in addition to this, if the Moon is also in a water sign or makes mostly positive aspects (especially to the “psychic” planets Neptune, Uranus or Pluto), then the psychic abilities and mind power, resulting from this placement becomes a force that should not be underestimated at all.

It is, however, difficult to predict exactly for what purposes these abilities will be used. In general, everything depends on the location of the other planets by houses and aspects in the natal chart. Such abilities can be a double-edged sword. On the one hand, for example, they can become a powerful vehicle to benefit others.

Those born with their Moon in the 8th house may have healing powers and by going “under one’s skin”, showing understanding for their pains and problems, they can soothe and heal them.

At the same time, Moon in the 8th house people have the ability to direct their sexual energy for healing purposes. They often do this quite unconsciously, but it is good to know that because they are born with this placement, they can, with very little training, direct the tantric energy of kundalini in an amazing healing way. With some good will, they can easily help others to discover their own positive qualities and strengths, the existence of which they had never guessed before.

In general, Moon in the 8th house people are able to see and reveal beauty and strength all around, so under their influence, people can begin to bloom like beautiful roses.

However, there is another group of people with this Moon placement that uses their strong intuition mostly for personal gain. They do not focus on the hidden beauty and strength of the people around them, but decide to use their weaknesses instead. Moon in the 8th house people can suck out other people’s emotional energy or take their material possessions.

In what way exactly will Moon in the 8th house people use their strong intuitive abilities depends largely on the level of their spiritual development and their free will.

Regardless of the specific situation, the Moon will instinctively try to find protection against the vicissitudes of fate through what the 8th house offers it. Old astrology books claim that people born with this Moon placement will inherit a considerable amount of money, land, or real estate, most likely through the partner or through the parents.

The 8th house also has to do with one’s deeply innate sexual instincts. On the one hand, these instincts ensure the continuation of the human existence. On the other hand, since there are a large number of socially imposed restrictions in this area, instincts are the main reason for many of the headaches and problems we face in life.

When the Moon falls in the 8th house, finding a positive expression of these innate instincts is of even greater importance for the individual.

Moon in the 8th house people have the gift to “feel” their partner and can automatically adapt to most fully meet their needs. This applies to both women and men, born with this Moon placement. Their adaptability to the partner leads to his or her complete liberation – he or she presents themselves in their best sexual form and is at the peak of their sexual power. It can be said that for those born with their Moon in the 8th house, the full satisfaction of sexual needs becomes a prerequisite for satisfaction in all other areas of life.

This is why it is absolutely vital for Moon in the 8th house people to find a partner, who has the same level of sexual energy as them, and who also expresses it in a similar way.

Moon in the 8th House Weaknesses

moon in the 8th house meaning

At the same time, however, the Moon in the 8th house is characterized by a high level of suspiciousness, jealousy and disbelief. Even the most innocent gestures of flirting by a partner can be instinctively interpreted as a threat to the existence of the relationship. These negative reactions must be well understood and consciously kept ‘on a short leash’, because a few uncontrolled outbursts can cause serious difficulties.

When the Moon is heavily afflicted by bad aspects from other planets, it is possible that those born with this placement experience traumatic separations or divorces with lasting psychological effect on both partners. The aforementioned negative emotions such as mistrust and jealousy can have an extremely strong impact on them and affect them for a long time.

Moon in the 8th house people can find it hard to pinpoint the reasons for their bad mood, lack of cheerfulness, frequent headaches, irritability, etc.

For example, they often attribute such conditions to various “objective” reasons. However, with a deeper psychological analysis, it almost always turns out that the real reasons for such an internal imbalance are rooted in the lack of sexual satisfaction. Therefore, for them, consciously building trust in the partner is vital – it will ensure the longevity and solidity of the relationship.

People with their Moon in the 8th house are extremely sensitive to the hidden forces that govern both the individual and public life as a whole. Therefore, they easily anticipate future events, as they are particularly sensitive to economic trends that involve large scale business operations. In the presence of favorable factors in the natal chart, they can make a very successful financial career on the stock exchanges, in stock trading, in large international trade corporations, etc.

Sometimes, however, their heightened sensitivity to invisible occult forces can manifest itself as paranoia, as an uncontrollable feeling that they are “obsessed” with forces, hidden deep in the subconscious mind.

Moon in the 8th House Mother and Childhood

As children, Moon in the 8th house people are extremely sensitive to the unspoken, sometimes insidious feelings and emotions of the adults around them. This is especially true of the mother’s experiences – each of her negative emotional states can be imprinted in the child as a potential threat to their own security and protection.

The child with the Moon in the 8th house grows up, absorbing the whole range of hidden and unspoken emotions on the part of the mother.

Anything that causes her annoyance, frustration, grief or emotional injury is unconsciously interpreted by the child as a threat to their own survival and well-being. This is why Moon in the 8th house people grow up forming their worldview to a great extent, based on the mental and emotional experiences of their mother.

It should be emphasized here that the overall formation of the individual in this way is completely unconscious.

In my practice, I have encountered many cases of people born with their Moon in the 8th house, whose lifestyle, views and behavior are almost entirely based on the influence, received from their mothers.

Some of them are aware of it and openly acknowledge this fact, while others passionately deny it. It doesn’t matter if they do still keep in touch with their parents or not. I have also encountered many cases in which the mothers of those born with their Moon in the 8th house live in another country or have not even been alive for a long time. Nevertheless, their influence continues to color almost every decision in their children’s lives. It is as if they are invisibly present and constantly guiding them.

The extraordinary power of such invisible connection can be explained by the instinct for self-preservation (8th house of Scorpio) and the Moon (mother) located here.

Naturally, in a more advanced state of self-awareness, Moon in the 8th house people begin to gradually free themselves from this invisible influence, which hinders their development and ability to make their own decisions and exert their free will.

Often people born with their Moon in the 8th house had a ‘taste’ of the possessions of the underworld God Pluto in their childhood. Maybe they had early child experiences of a sexual nature, or close contact with death (either a personal event or through the death of loved ones).

Any such experience can leave a deep mark in the still unconscious child’s consciousness. Such events inevitably leave their mark on the individual in their relationships later in life. If certain recurring problems arise in their relationships with others, this is a sure indicator that they are due to certain experiences from their early childhood. These experiences should be brought up to their consciousness, analyzed, and properly dealt with.

Sometimes it can be a past life experience, throwing its shadow at 8th house people current life.

Whether the causes are purely karmic or not, the process of removing them is the same.

When we are dealing with Pluto as the god of the underworld, the only way to overcome his influence is to bring it to light. Under the bright light of consciousness, he loses his power and is unable to rule us like puppets. With proper use of the energy created by the Moon in the 8th house, these people are able to direct their huge supply of emotional energy in the direction of helping and healing themselves and everyone around them.

Moon in the 8th House Remedies

The greatest remedy for Moon in the 8th house people will be, as mentioned above to bring all these subconscious patterns and behaviors to their consciousness.

By being aware of their strengths and weaknesses, they can start making mindful choices that will help them utilize this enormous energy source they carry within in a constructive way for themselves and for others.

It is also worth reminding that a Moon in the 8th house is a very karmic placement, related to one’s family roots, and it would be worth exploring the history of their ancestors and the struggles they have been through. By bringing such events to the light of consciousness, those born with their Moon in the 8th house will have a better idea of what trauma has been imprinted in their genes from past generations. The mere awareness will already equip them with the power to deal with it.

Last but not least, it is essential that Moon in the 8th house people make the conscious choice to be on the side of the Light forces, rather than the side of the dark ones.

Otherwise, this placement can have bitter karmic consequences not only in this lifetime, but in the next one, too. The opposite is true, too. Even just by having the intention to do good, one can reap the benefits of having this placement in their chart.
