Sexual partners. Gynecologists. People you share joint finances and resources with, like a mate or business partner. Other sources of support like investors, trust fund executors, Social Security or grant providers. Your CPA or investment counselor.
Dead people who stay in touch. People who put you in the will…then threaten to disinherit you if you don’t do what they say. Family members or sugar daddies who dole out money to you, then make you pay, pay, pay.
Staff of institutions you owe money to, like banks, credit card companies, collection agencies, or the IRS. Insurance agents. (I don’t know about you, but I could do without most of these individuals!)
From:Everything You Ever Wondered about the 8th House……But Were Afraid I Might Tell You
Here an interesting thread on few planets in the 8th house:
I too identify with loads of Scorpio traits and issues.Im very intense,truly passionate,deep(everything has a deeper meaning or feeling),extremely emotional,sensitive,extremely suspicious about everything,have to have control over ANY situation, possessive and jealous(which is strengthen with Sun in Taurus!),very probing(have to get to the bottom of it all untill I master it!),very private,secretive(even when I talk a lot I don’t really reveal anything),obsessive with a problem, occupation,a person(only in relationships tough;with a man in my life),great interest in mysteries …
I have trust issues also.I get along with men great but not so much with women!Either they are too cold for me(all air signs around me)or they are jealous of me.Strangely Im not jealous of them(Im jealous if my man looks at another woman or prefers to spend time with someone else rather than me) I try so hard to please these women but as Im also dominant (and usually they are dominant too)we just don’t get along.But Im also “sunny” and I love to laugh and I make everybody laugh so I do attract people toward me without effort so Im not a total nightmare.
One of the possible players in the Monster in the Closet. This is how Dana Gerhardt relates Mercer Mayer’s children’s book by the same name (There’s a Monster in My Closet) to the 8th house:
“A little boy hears a frightful noise, and night after night, quaking in fear, with a flashlight ready, his toy soldiers gathered around him, he barricades the closet door. His fear only grows bigger. Finally he decides there’s nothing left to do but face the beast. The monster is big and scary, but in a surprise turn, the demon goes jelly-kneed and begs to crawl into bed with the boy. The same can happen with our own 8th house monsters. Our fears want comforting so they can dissolve. But if we refuse to face them, their power only grows.
