Vesta in 8th House

Houses

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.

Vesta in 8th House


When Vesta, the asteroid and keeper of the eternal flame, comes into the 8th house of death/rebirth, transformation, intimacy and vulnerability, this can make hidden wisdom and the ability to perceive energy very accessible. Since this does have to do with sexual merging with another, you may be inclined to take long periods of celibacy and favor quality over quantity in your intimate relationships. You are very sensitive to the energy exchange of sex.

All eighth house placements interact with some form of trauma, crisis or adversity. You may occasionally need a respite from the world and from life to completely transform yourself. When you take this time to regenerate, shedding old layers so that new life can spring up in their place, you activate ancient abilities and templates.
