MERCURY IN 8TH HOUSE
Sutras 57-63-If Mercury is in the 8th house, the native will get a good span of life and will be owner of a large area of land. He will have seven children. In his 25th year he will receive respect and honour in many ways and will get wide spread fame and reputation. If the lord of the 8th is strong or if the lord of the 8th is in his sign of exaltation (Virgo) and associated with benefic the native will be assured of full span -of life. If the lord of the 8th is in his sign of debilitation (Pisces) and is associated with malefics, the native will have a short life.
Comments-The above Sutras speak very well of Mercury in 8th house. The native will get lands and good reputation and also longevity. The Sutras do not mention of wealth. In our view Mercury-will aspect the 2nd house (Dhana Bhava) from the 8th and therefore the native should be wealthy also. According to Sutra 58 the native will have seven children. At the time of giving effects of Mercury in 5th house (house of children Suta Bhava), it was said in Sutra 38 that Mercury in 5th would create obstacles in getting the native children. It, there fore becomes difficult to believe that the same Mercury in the 8th house (an evil house) will give the native seven children particularly when this house has got nothing to do with children.
Brihat Jataka-The person concerned will be widely known for his qualities.
Phaldeepika-The native will be a person who will have authority to award punishment (judge, magistrate etc). He will have wide spread reputation and will be long-lived. He will be a supporter of his family and will be full of good qualities.
Saravali-The native will be famous, full of glory, powerful, longlived and supporter of his family. He will be like a king or a judge.
Chamatkar Chintamani-The native will live for one hundred years. He will enjoy good reputation not only in his own country but in foreign countries also. He will acquire wealth by favour of the king or by doing business. He will enjoy the company of women.
