Mercury in the 8th house

Any planet in the Eighth house of the horoscope (house of danger) deserves close attention and serious study. Mercury is responsible for travel and travel. The eighth house adds an element of risk to the travel of the native. He needs to be especially careful when crossing the street and driving a car and, of course, strictly follow the rules of the road. 

Mercury symbolizes intelligence, the ability to learn and the ability of a person to express themselves through oral and written speech, and the Eighth House is related to secrets and classified information. A person with the considered planet in the 8th house is smart, perceptive, attentive and observant, but he does not intend to reveal his plans to others. Read more

MERCURY IN THE EIGHTH HOUSE when well-aspected gives gain through literary or scientific agencies, occupations or other mercurial pursuits provided they are carried on in partnership with someone else. 

This position also indicates that the person may receive a legacy and it is a good indication of the financial success of the marriage, but if Mercury is afflicted its position in the Eighth House indicates financial troubles for the marriage partner and litigation probably in connection with a legacy left to the native.

 Your mental and communicative abilities will largely be applied to the growth and development of the mind through the study of fundamental questions of life and death, and a search for the beyond. There is an interest in scientific, metaphysical and occult subjects. Much of your knowledge may be gained through intuitive means rather than the study of books. There is an aptitude for business and other financial dealings. Your mental disposition is ideally suited to work of an investigative nature, research, psychotherapy, psychiatry, police or detective work.
