8th house Through the lens 🌺🌑
* Aries cusp: dynamic, blunt and independent at heart-stubborn and contemptuous when it comes to their intimate nature. Once you get past the calm of there Pisces 7th house you enter a realm of passion and intensity. They can seemingly be an entirely different individual once you’ve known them for quite sometime or achieve intimacy. They can be overwhelming and constantly pouring energy into their understanding of what it means to connect on a soul level. Death may be something all to familiar to them and often in a gritty and visceral way as with the nature of mars. Inheritance can often either be a battle or a passed lineage of sorts-martial money can be a source of agitation in the marriage and also be a source of the biggest lose due to the axis of libra/Aries. The occult is of interest for these individuals but there is a danger of being overly aggressive towards the world of the dead and attracting negative spirits. Sex is often rough in nature but deeply giving and passionate. Albeit they say these natives(depending on where mars is located) don’t always like prolonged sex.
* Taurus cusp: endearing, charming yet willful at heart. Once you’ve survived the more aggressive and in your face Arian 7th house and have known these natives for some years you often get to meet there move slower and down to earth side. There more cautious and easygoing nature whom seems to see life as a bag of chocolates both litturly and figuratively. There more passive and bullheaded nature may surprise you and what’s even more there realistic amount of patience may have you a loss for words from their earlier Arian dc. Often times the energy towards the occult is peaceful and often times experiences with the afterlife and paranormal activity remain benevolent unless mars or Pluto and maybe even harsh Uranus and Neptune are involved. Sex unlike there Aquarian/or Capricorn 5th May suggest will become much more sensual and tender in its expression as well as their more innate possessive nature
* Gemini cusp: sharp in wit and penetrating in their thoughts and observations. Unlike there more body based 7th house whom often read things in a more physical sense-once you really get to know these individuals you not only will be in for a change in their usual routines but a more probing mind behind the pleasing and sensuous demeanor. There fascination can fly from topic to topic at an almost alarming rate as well as what stimulates them on a physical and mental compasity. Many of their true feelings reside in the unseen and the unspoken in human nature be it astrology be it psychology be it the lime light of religion or the dim light of death. Their thoughts can be dark but it never consumes them. Sex here is seen as a concept rather than an ideal and often times they detach from the act itself and have a hard time opening up to intimacy out of a fear of truly letting down the invincible Barriers and chains they’ve shackles themselves too. Money here is often a game of wits and these natives often have to play their cards right in terms of investments and settlements-“play the game before it plays you”
* Cancer cusp:deeply feeling and worldly compassionate-a heavy chasm of emotion and sensitivity lie in wait once you get past the meager mask of the wordy banter and intellectual sparing that is their 7th house. You’ll often be overwhelmed by their true natures-whom are strong in their emotional presence but even stronger in their resilience and spiritual backing. These are the people whom I like to call the trauma fighters! They often deal with hardships and even harsher relationships with their mothers and even on an emotional level in general and walk through the fires without a trace of defeat. Albeit there is a pronounced sensitivity much of it comes from their need to belong and make a home-one that cannot be taken away. Sex here is very melding and very turbulent. These people have to be emotionally “ok” before they engage in it and sex takes on the energy of what their feeling-anger-sadness-joy- and so on. Their could be trouble with money in relation with women and inheritance may stem from the women in the family. Death could be a result of diseases in the mothers side as similar with moon in 6th or cancer on 6th. High receptivity here and even intuitiveness bordering on the psychic.
* Leo cusp: arrogant, above and powerful. A raging lion hides behind their more sensitive and calming sensibility that is their 7th house. Often times this is a escalation rather then a duo personality. Often times you see the nurturing and the intimate aspects of them but the Leo hides beneath these displays and shows itself as attention seeking and subtle manipulation as a way and means to receive admiration to fuel their inner personality. They love-they romance-they dance-they shout their loud but they’re youthful and pleasure seeking-the truest form of daredevils who challenge themselves in the darkness. The have an insatiable need for chaos in there intimate lives and can often attract it unconsciously as a means to have a better understating of their truest selves! Hence the(sun). Money matters are deeply rooted to their self worth and inheritance can come from males-that being said it may be something that has to be earned. Also once more like the moon-fathers side of the family could be what and where illness related to the death might occur. Sex here is passionate and authentic! They pour their love onto those they love and can be a bit tyrannical and dominate but I wouldn’t say the “I” aspect present in Leo mars is visible here with having Leo on the 8th house cusp! It’s more protective and “they” oriented.
* Virgo cusps: meticulous and cautious-innocent and nervous unlike their more outspoken and confident persona in their 7th house. They may surprise you with how shy and quiet they really can be deep down! They can seem like night and day at times and once you get to know them intimately they fluctuate between moments of confidence and moments of hubris. They’re immensely calculated and have a very focused and watchful nature-often preferring to observant rather than action oriented. They feel extremely homey these people and can have a very serene and peaceful energy about them that you wouldn’t expect. They can have a narrow minded view towards the occult and often avoid it. Inheritance is something that is planned out and well versed here. Sex here takes on a more sensuous yet pleasing disposition-unlike virgo mars the theme of service plays out in sex more often but the give and take of satisfaction colors sex here
* Libra cusp: passive, noble-and an internal lover at heart. Due to the nature of venus being in the 8th here unlike Taurus there are some variances-while the Tauren cusp natives may-oscillate between obsession and compulsion those with the libra cusp oscillate between desire and lust. Unlike their more critical 7th house they’re often more on the laid back and welcoming side of things and seek honest and open communication with those they care for-they’re immensely forgiving of the flaws of others and even implore the qualities one may see as a burden, because to them every aspect of human nature even in its ugliest nature is beautiful. They often see the beauty in chaos. Inheritance is usually simplistic and without much trouble and they’re often lucky in these endeavors. Relations with the occult are also pleasant although these people are more interested in the familial aspect of the afterlife and much like cancer on the 8th May seek communion with lost family members or lovers. Sex here is deeply intimate and an ideal union! They seek mutual stimulation of their partner and in turn them! Many people say these people prefer classy sex as opposed to messy and raw sex but I beg to differ this is the libra/Aries axis so they often fluctuate between the lusty side and the innocent side.
* Scorpio cusp: brooding, volatile-intense and deeply complex. Unlike they’re more sociable and superficial libra in the 7th once you get to really know these individuals you’ll meet an entirely different beast. There is a noticeable shift once time passes with these guys and gals-I wouldn’t say they become scary or anything but they do show they’re more serious and darker sides-the parts of them that are on the fringe-the sides of them that are weak and unsure-the sides of them searching for meaning and deep beyond what words can convey. They are powerful immensely yet they live in the dark and often times they’re unaware of there attraction to the world where light looses its power. Yet these are some of the purest and most compassionate souls you’ll ever meet. Inheritance is usually a landscape of manipulation and power plays but since Scorpio is in its own house these natives usually come out on top. Sex can be overwhelming to say the least and can easily become a fixation! They want to consume and desire to be consumed. They want an exchange of souls and to die nothing more and nothing less-if they come back then the odds where in their favor.
* Sagittarius cusp: spontaneous, daring, intense-yet playfully young. Unlike there more serious and demanding Scorpio 7th house once you get to really know them they’re truly children at heart-obnoxious and curious of the body and the realm of the soul and it’s departure. Much like Leo I dare say most times with the water dc and fire 8th house there is a tug of war dynamic where the water house is the leader and the 8th house is the underground influence. Often times they’re intensely propelled into their desires so much so that the grand nature of Sagittarius seeks to completely engulf it yet the sagittrian influence often grows frightened of their needs for utter and complete devotion-it clashes with their sense of exploration yet it’s the driving force behind their truth. They’re eager and forever energetic but have an exaggerative and “jump before leaping” personality. Inheritance is a blessing for them and usually marriage is a happy and beautiful thing for them and their bank and not in a shallow way either it just kinda is! Sex wise they’re passionate and insatiable! Once they’re in love they want it all the time and wherever they can! Anywhere knew and even if it’s the same place they don’t mind so long as they get to completely enjoy they’re lover in totality.
* Capricorn cusp: heavy, structured-reserved and erotic. Unlike their more bubbly and on the go 7th house in sag they really tend to be quite worrisome and somber deep down-many have a fear of true intimacy and avoid it at all cost or project this insecurity in strong sexual escapades as coping mechanism-unlike sag 8th house cusp who feels torn between commitment and freedom these natives are torn between intimacy and isolation. They unknowingly distance themselves from others who try to get close and often this becomes apparent when you truly get to know them-the walls begin forming and the person once bubbly begins to grow rather serious and cautious of both your feelings and you as a person. They are often wise beyond their years and extremely devoted despite their sag qualities projected earlier. Inheritance can be a hard fought battle and often money is scarce in early years but after the age of 30 things start looking up! Sex here is either done without feeling or is done deeply and with all of the soul. These people tend to hold of sex till their later years and don’t emphasize on it unless it’s with someone whom they love-but I suppose if you’ve brought out their 8th house you’ve made it right?
* Aquarius cusp: eccentric, electric, chaotic and completely out of reach. Unlike their more somber and reserved Capricorn dc these natives tend to be a bit unified with their Capricorn and their Aquarian energy-both of these signs being ruled by Saturn here creates a quiet and seeming-less transition that you don’t catch yet something that’ll leave you confused down the road. They can be serious and stern one moment and then childlike and far away the next. Something about them seems so eerie yet like a electric current constantly fluxing in its velocity. They’re both captivating and open and have a very unique yet detached view towards intimacy that becomes very prevalent upon getting to know them. They’re far more flexible then their cap dc suggest-yet their also far more emotional and intense then their Aquarius 8th suggest. They often cherish the chaos in their minds and live of it-there madness is their greatest source of change! These people often handle their turmoil in a detached way and I refer to this placement as the “dual psyche” placement as often times they handle their pain as if they’re a stranger looking in. Inheritance and money for that matter is a random occurrence and usually comes and goes but what’s amazing is that they’re never bad off money comes back just as quickly as it goes. Sex here is INTENSELY felt for these natives! I wouldn’t say they’re detached-especially when in love they lose themselves in their partners but there is an aspect of them that’s always watching from above never truly “there” sex comes in burst for them and there sex drive is fairly high but that’s more of a idea than a concept.
* Pisces cusp: evasive, fluid, synergy and the big yin and yang. Unlike their more detached personal image of their aqua dc there is a pronounced depth and emotional receptivity that’s often surprising to those who get to know these individuals. They’re huge music lovers and even bigger lovers of the world we call purgatory-they often never truly exists among us and constantly shift and phase in and out of reality and the world lying just beyond our own consciousness. They often project their more detached and rational front as a means to protect their more vulnerable side-inheritance wise their must be caution to those who may try to scam or seduce you out of what’s yours-this includes your spouse. The occult is a danger here as your grasp in the world of the living is already thinly held so it’s very easy for spirits to be drawn to you for that matter and of a more malicious intent. Sex here is often a means of completely losing oneself and even disappearing all together. They so sensitive sexually and often times sex feels like the first time always with them due to the depth of their feelings-sexual addictions and drug addictions are a possibility if taken to far.
