The Eighth House: Mysticism
Many astrologers refer to the Eighth House as the House of Transitions. Some who choose to take a more dire interpretation call this the House of Death. However, this is a misnomer, much like the Death Card in the Tarot deck. The Death it speaks of is not the death of the physical body. It speaks more of the death of a situation; the death of an outdated way of thinking; the letting go of that which no longer serves you. So, if you think of “death” in the allegorical context in its representation of change, you can see where lots of positive energies can be capitalized on.
