Usual effects of Venus in 8th House

Venus in 8th house brings suddenness in your life. It shows a union or marriage and, this house specifically, shows how your in-laws will be, their traits and nature. This position will make you a secretive lover. You might meet the person at a social gathering and maintain a warm relationship but will be hesitant to reveal it in front of society. You will maintain the affair in secret.

As 8th house is the house of secrecy, hidden thoughts and beliefs, you will hold your secrets and this will also drive your assets and convenience. You will neither like nor be comfortable revealing too much to the world.

Your spouse will be committed to you but will not forgive you for any mistake. However, he or she will take extra care of your likes and dislikes; at the same time, will control all your assets and will take an interest in your finances. Your spouse would maintain a balance between saving and expense; and would wish to know about each expense on your part. Your joint assets will flourish after marriage.

You will be interested in occult sciences and will have healing powers, although you will not declare it to the world. If Venus is well placed, it will make you a ‘white healer’ who heals humanity for harmony and peace. If otherwise, it will make you interested in black magic and tantrism.

If you go against social norms and have multiple affairs, then you actually destroy the glitter and power of Venus. Venus is pure love and romance. If you exploit this energy by extra marital and other illegal relationships, then it will create repercussions in your life. Your speech will become blunt and rude, which will not be liked by people.

An 8th house Venus gives you the peculiar trait of blaming your spouse or life partner for the very same things that you do. It is, maybe, due to the deep psychological insight into one’s own behaviour that triggers such, usually untrue, allegations.
