The 8th House

When transiting planets move through the eighth house of the natal chart, there is a profound focus on transformation, rebirth, and deep psychological exploration. Individuals may experience intense emotional experiences, letting go of old patterns, or delving into their subconscious during this period. This transit often brings about endings and new beginnings, as well as opportunities for healing and personal growth through facing inner fears and shadows. It's a time for embracing change, embracing the unknown, and releasing what no longer serves one's highest good. Additionally, the eighth house governs shared resources, joint finances, and intimate connections, so transits through this house may also involve matters related to inheritance, investments, or deepening bonds with others on a soul level.

Keywords: Transformation, rebirth, intensity, healing, shared resources.
