The eighth house rules transformation, taboos, and other people’s resources. These are forces outside of your personal control, imparting lessons that lead to growth—which can be painful but effective. Associated with the occult, the eighth house is a portal into the spiritual realm through these life-changing experiences and transitions. Inherently a spiritual act and therefore also ruled by this house, sex can create life and transcend individual experience by connecting you with other souls. The eighth house also represents assets like inheritances and legacies. These assets can be karmic— giving but also taking from the retributions of past lifetimes, which do not always necessarily relate to your ancestry of this lifetime.
