Eris in 8th House

"I am capable of embracing my true self, facing my fears, and transforming my relationships with authenticity and intensity."


The 12 Houses of astrology are symbolic of the all the departments that make up human life. The planets and zodiac signs will manifest themselves most strongly in the sphere of life represented by the House in which they fall on your chart. Houses are not "energies" like the elements or planets, nor do they color the expression of energies like the zodiac signs do. The houses are WHERE these energies are most likely to manifest. The houses are the fields of experience, not the experience themselves.

Eris in 8th House

Eris defines that aspect of ourselves that is at odds with the cultural norm. It’s the part that stands against what everyone does for the sake of living their truth.

People with Eris in the eighth house of joint finances, death and the sub-conscious, are here to transform their relationship with intimacy, sexuality and themes related to Death and transformation. These are people who carry a desire to go deeper, to understand more, and to uncover it all.

Deep in their soul lies unrest that is seeking resolution. This plays out in all areas involving intimacy in their lives. They seek intensity in their experiences and command truth in all their relationships.

Their connection to their sexuality is strong and intense. They desire to release all of their inhibitions within their sexual play and they can also be those that want to explore the shadow within the realms of sexuality as a means of understanding themselves better through the context of intimacy

There also lies the potential for others to try take away their resources. This may happen through inheritances, insurance payments and shared resources with a partner. Eris in this house calls them to take a stand against this financial dishonesty, standing up for their rights.

When Eris resides in your eighth house, you here to unpack the complexity and depths of who you are through your sexuality and intimacy with others. This house with Eris in it, calls for you to continually die to yourself through the ongoing process of plunging into your subconscious as a means of release, healing and transformation.

There may be ongoing experiences with those around you dying, and this process allows you to understand the cyclical wheel of existence of living, dying and the spirit realm beyond that.

This is a very transformative and intense place to have Eris and anywhere where you are not allowing yourself to plunge into the depths, opens the potential for illness to incur and ongoing patterns being repeated without resolution. Through this process of healing, you learn compassion which favours you to teaching others with moving through their own shadows.
