Let us discuss the effects of the 8th House.

Long life- If the 8th Lord is placed in a Kendra or angle, it gives long life to the native.

Short-life- 8th Lord together with a malefic planet is placed in the 8th House itself and the Ascendant Lord is also situated there, this combination will make the native short-lived.

Note: The learned should consider the longevity of the native in the same manner from Saturn and the 10th Lord.

N- Short life will result:

When the 8th lord is in the 8th house along with a malefic or along with the Ascendant lord or

When Saturn joins a malefic or ascendant lord in the 8th house or

The 10th lord is in the 8th house along with a malefic planet or ascendant lord.

Long-life- Y-1- If the 6th Lord or the 12th Lord are placed in the 6th or the 12th House or if they are in the Ascendant House or the 8th House the combination blesses the child with long life.

N- The yogas are

(a) The 6th lord is in the 1th house.

(b) The 6th and 12th lords simultaneously in the 6th and the 12th house.

(c) The 6th lord is in the Ascendant while the 12th lord is in the 8th house.

Y-2- When the 5th Lord, the Ascendant Lord or the 8th Lord are in their own sign, or own Navamsa or in the House of a friendly planet, it also makes the native long lived.

Y-3- Again should the Ascendant Lord, the 8th Lord, the 10th Lord and Saturn occupy a Kendra (angle) or Trikona (trine) the 11th House, the native should be told as having long life.

Y-4- When Lord of Ascendant is placed in its sign of exaltation, Moon in 11th house and Jupiter in 8th house, then the native lives long.

N- Longevity should be predicted according to the combination which is stronger among them.

Short-life-Y-1- If the 8th Lord is in a Kendra (angle) and the Ascendant Lord is weak, the native’s span of life will be between 20 and 32 years.

Y-2- If the 8th Lord is in his debilitation sign, the 8th House is occupied by a malefic planet, the Ascendant Lord is weak, the native’s life will be certainly short.

Y-3- When the 8th Lord is in conjunction with a malefic planet and the 8th House is occupied by malefic planets and the 12th House is also occupied by malefic planets, the death of the native will be instant.

Y-4- In the event of the malefic falling in Kendra or trikona (trine) and the benefic in the 6th or the 8th House and the 8th Lord in his debilitation occupying the Ascendant, the native will have immediate death.

Y-5- The 5th House, the 8th House and the 8th Lord having conjunction with the malefic give a very short life to the native.

Y-6- If the 8th Lord is situated in the 8th House itself and the Moon is together with a malefic planet and she has no benefic aspect on her, death will occur within a month.

Long life

Y-1- If the Ascendant Lord is in his exaltation sign, the Moon is in the 11th house and Jupiter is in the 8th House, there is no doubt in it that the native will be long lived.

Y-2- If the Ascendant is exceedingly strong and is aspected by a benefic from an angle, the native will have long life along with wealth and virtues.
