Benefic retrograde Mercury placed in the eighth house of a horoscope can bless the native with good results in the spheres of marriage, profession, wealth, health, knowledge, wisdom, spiritualism and many other spheres of his life. Accordingly, different natives benefitting from this good influence may witness good results which may be different in type and quantum, depending on the type and strength of this placement as well as depending on the overall tone of the horoscopes of these natives.

Benefic retrograde Mercury in the eighth house of a horoscope can render good, very good or great amount of professional success to the native under its influence and this benefic influence has the ability to render such success in a relatively short period of time. It means that the native benefitting from this good influence may achieve success in his profession, fast or very fast compared to other people in the same line of profession. Some natives under this benefic influence may pursue a profession in some type of research and analysis field and accordingly, they may get jobs in one of such fields. These natives can work as financial analysts working for some banks or some other financial institutions, they can work as researchers who do the job of research related to various spheres for their respective employers or they can do some other type of job which belongs to the same category.

For example, the presence of benefic retrograde Mercury in the eighth house of a horoscope in the sign of Gemini can motivate the native to pursue a career as researcher and analyst in some financial line and accordingly, such native may work as a financial analyst for some bank or for some other financial institution where his primary job is to assess the risk involved in various financial investments planned by the institution he works for. If benefic Jupiter is present in the tenth house of the same horoscope in the sign of Leo, the success achieved by this native may increase many times and he may be recognized as an expert in his field. The combined effect of such positive influences can bring very good amount of incomes and recognition to the native and he may also achieve a post of high authority in his respective institution after a relatively short period of time, by virtue of his services to the institution.

Some other natives profiting from this good influence may pursue similar fields of profession but they may instead work for some government departments or agencies due to which they may work on a position of power and authority also. For example, the placement of benefic retrograde Mercury in the eighth house of a horoscope in the sign of Libra can get the native selected in some government department which deals with finances or revenue, like the department of income tax or internal revenue. If benefic Jupiter is placed in the tenth house of such horoscope in the sign of Sagittarius at the same time, the native under the effect of such combined benefic influence may get selected as a high class officer in some revenue related department of the government. The amount of success achieved by this native can further increase if benefic Venus also joins benefic Jupiter in the tenth house of the same horoscope in the sign of Sagittarius.

However, if there is a slight variation in these combinations, the results can also change slightly and the native may pursue a different job profile in the similar lines of profession. For example, if benefic retrograde Mercury is present in the eighth house of a horoscope in the sign of Libra and benefic Rahu is also present in the same house, the native may work as an intelligence officer or investigating officer for some government department like revenue department or some other type of department. If benefic Mars is present in the tenth house of the same horoscope in the sign of Sagittarius, such native may work as an investigating or intelligence officer for some non-financial agency of the government, like some type of vigilance bureau or some type of central investigation agency. The presence of benefic Jupiter in the ninth house of the same horoscope in the sign of Scorpio can further make some changes and accordingly the native under the combined influence of these benefic placements may become a top class officer in some investigation agency with government, like central bureau of investigation or federal bureau of investigation.

Apart from this, benefic retrograde Mercury in the eighth house of a horoscope can also bless the native with special abilities in the field of paranormal, supernatural, divine or occult and accordingly some natives benefitting from this positive influence may become professional astrologers, numerologists, vastu experts, palmists, psychics, spiritual gurus, religious gurus, spiritual or religious philosophers and many other such type of professionals. For example, the presence of benefic retrograde Mercury in the eight house of a horoscope in the sign of Pisces can make the native interested in the study of astrology or some other type of paranormal or supernatural field and accordingly, such native may devote a considerable amount of time to learn more and more on these topics.

The presence of benefic Sun in the eighth house of the same horoscope in the sign of Pisces can supply more strength to such paranormal or supernatural interests of the native and the native under the combined effect of these two benefic planets may not only be interested in such studies and researches, but he may also make a career choice in one of these fields, like he may become a professional astrologer, spiritual guru or some type of spiritual philosopher. If benefic Jupiter also joins this benefic combination in the eighth house of the same horoscope in the sign of Pisces, the native may become a well established, successful and famous astrologer or some type of Guru who provides guidance on one of the topics already mentioned in this example.

The presence of benefic Venus in the ninth house of the same horoscope in the sign of Aries or the presence of benefic Moon or benefic Rahu in the eleventh house of the same horoscope in the sign of Gemini can bring even more success to the native under the combined effect of all these positive influences. Such a native may not only receive very good amount of incomes and success through his profession, say astrology for this example, but he may also write books on this topic and he may also appear on television shows on the same topic. Similarly, some other natives under the combined effect of these positive influences may write books on spiritual or religious philosophy and they may also appear on television shows on the same topics where they preach their philosophy and receive praise for it.

Considering one more variation on the same topic, if benefic retrograde Mercury is present in the eighth house of a horoscope in the sign of Pisces and benefic Moon is also placed in the same house of the same horoscope, the native under the combined effect of these benefic influences may follow a path of spiritualism instead of astrology or some other type of divine science. Such native may devote a big part of his life in order to conduct researches in the field of spiritualism and he may start teaching the others, after the age of 40. If benefic Jupiter or benefic Mars is present in the tenth house of the same horoscope in the sign of Taurus, the native may actually become a spiritual guru who may have his own Ashram or some other type of establishment and who may have a good number of followers whom he teaches the ways of spiritualism as well as those of meditation.

If benefic Rahu is present in the ninth house of the same horoscope in the sign of Aries, the same native may become a spiritual guru of national fame and he may also become the head of a new spiritual or religious faith which has large number of followers and which has branches in many cities all across the country. Such native may also get recognition in foreign countries and accordingly, his mission or faith may also spread to foreign countries. The placement of benefic retrograde Mercury in the eighth house of a horoscope is a very powerful placement as far as the interests and achievements related to spiritual or paranormal fields are concerned and accordingly, this placement can bless the natives under its influence with various types of results related to these fields. Some of the results mentioned by me are just an idea of what this benefic influence can do for the native under its influence and the entire scope of this benefic placement is very big.

Benefic retrograde Mercury in the eighth house of a horoscope can give good results related to marriage of the native under its influence and accordingly, some natives under this positive influence may witness different types of benefic results through their marriages. Some of these natives may get married to someone belonging to a foreign country and then these natives may get settled in that foreign country after their marriages. Some other natives under this influence may get good or very good amount of support from their life partners as well as from their in-laws and they may achieve good, very good or even great things with the help of their in-laws.

For example, the presence of benefic retrograde Mercury in the eighth house of a horoscope in the sign of Gemini can get the native married to someone who is himself very well established and who at the same time belongs to a family which is also very well established. Accordingly, such a native may get good or very good amount of support in his profession and in overall status, from his life partner as well as from the family of such life partner. If benefic Sun is also present in the eighth house of the same horoscope in the sign of Gemini, the native under the combined effect of such benefic influences may get married to someone who belongs to a well established business family, a well established administrative family or a well established political family. The financial as well as social status of such native may change soon after the marriage and he may get elevated to a much higher social status by virtue of his life partner and his in-laws.

If benefic Jupiter is present in the tenth house of the same horoscope in the sign of Leo, the native under the combined effect of these benefic influences may witness very good gains through his marriage and if these benefic placements are further supported by the presence of benefic Venus in the seventh house of the same horoscope in the sign of Taurus, the marriage of such native may hold the key to a life which is entirely different as well as much better than the life he leads before marriage. Such a native may get married in a well established political family and he may himself get a position of power and authority with the support of his life partner as well as with the support of his in-laws. Apart from this, benefic retrograde Mercury placed in the eighth house of a horoscope can render a host of other benefits to the native under its influence.

On the other hand, malefic retrograde Mercury placed in the eighth house of a horoscope can create many problems in many spheres of a native’s life including his marriage, profession, overall health, well being, finances and many other spheres of his life due to which different natives suffering from this malefic placement may feel the heat of this bad influence in different spheres of their lives depending on the important factors in their horoscopes. Such malefic influence can cause problems in the marriage of the native due to which some natives under this bad influence may get married late or very late in their lives whereas some other natives may have to face other types of problems through their marriages.

For example, the presence of malefic retrograde Mercury in the eighth house of a horoscope in the sign of Libra can delay the marriage of the native under its influence and accordingly, such native may get married late or very late in his life. If malefic Saturn or malefic Ketu is also placed in the eighth house of the same horoscope in the sign of Libra or one of them is placed in the seventh house of the same horoscope in the sign of Virgo, the marriage of such native may be delayed till very late in his life and if there are no other marriage saving combinations in the horoscope of such native, he may not get married at all. Speaking about such benefic influences, the presence of benefic Jupiter or benefic Mars in the first house of the same horoscope in the sign of Pisces along with benefic Rahu or benefic Moon can still get the native married with some delay, despite the native suffering from the combined effect of such malefic influences.

Some other natives under this malefic influence may get married after some delay but they may have to suffer various types of problems after their marriages and through their marriages. For example, the presence of malefic retrograde Mercury in the eight house of a horoscope in the sign of Scorpio may not cause much delay in the marriage of the native but such native may have to suffer from a variety of problems after his marriage. If at the same time, malefic Venus or malefic Jupiter is also present in the eighth house of the same horoscope in the sign of Scorpio, the problems faced by such native may increase many times and it may become difficult for him to face all those problems.

Such native may suffer on account of serious issues related to lack of trust between him and his wife due to which he may have to go through a very bad marriage as the wife of such native may keep doubting him and she may also keep accusing him of the bad things which he never did at all. The native under the combined effect of such malefic influences may also have to experience a marriage which is much less in quality than an average marriage, as he may get married to a person who is afflicted by some serious and permanent type of disease. Such disease of the life partner is generally either not told to the native before marriage even though the life partner and his or her family may know all about it or such diseases may surface soon after the marriage of such native, in which case, even the life partner doesn’t know anything about it before marriage.

Hence the native may have to attend to his life partner, get her treated for the disease every now and then due to which he may not be able to derive much physical pleasure through his marriage and he may not get much physical service through his life partner. On the other hand, the native may himself have to serve his partner for a very long period of time which may amount to many years, as his life partner may face some type of disability due to some serious disease. The combination of such malefic retrograde Mercury and one or more than one of the already mentioned planets in the eighth house of a horoscope in many of the signs indicates a debt from the past life, which the native has to pay by suffering a bad quality marriage as well as by serving his life partner for many years.

Apart from this, malefic retrograde Mercury in the eighth house of a horoscope can cause many other types of problems related to the sphere of marriage of the native. In extreme cases, when such malefic influence is strong and there are some other negative combinations present in the horoscope of the native, such native may face a planned attack on his life, which is organized by his wife and which may even claim his life if there are no other life saving combinations in his horoscope. For example, the presence of malefic retrograde Mercury in the eighth house of a horoscope in the sign of Sagittarius can indicate a possible conspiracy against the native, planned by his wife and such conspiracy can change into a murder conspiracy if malefic Venus or malefic Jupiter is also placed in the eighth house of the same horoscope in the sign of Sagittarius. Such conspiracy can easily claim native’s life, if there are no life saving combinations present in the horoscope of the native. For example, the presence of benefic Saturn in the first house of the same horoscope in the sign of Taurus can make sure that though an attempt is made on his life, but he survives this conspiracy and he lives.

Malefic retrograde Mercury in the eighth house of a horoscope can also cause problems related to the professional sphere of the native due to which some natives suffering from this malefic placement may not get professionally established till late or very late in their lives whereas some other natives may have to face losses, troubles, tensions, false accusations and many other types of problems related to their professional spheres. For example, the presence of malefic retrograde Mercury in the eighth house of a horoscope in the sign of Cancer can cause delays in the professional sphere of the native and accordingly, the native may not find it easy to get a stable and permanent profession and he may have to change his job or even his line of profession, many times in his life. The damage can increase further, if malefic Ketu, malefic Rahu, malefic Saturn or malefic Mars is also present in the eight house of the same horoscope as in this case, the native under the combined effect of such malefic influences may have to remain jobless many times in his life for long periods of time.

Health and overall well being of the native including his lifespan can also be affected adversely, if malefic retrograde Mercury is present in the eighth house of his horoscope where the type of issues faced and the intensity of those issues depend on the type and strength of such malefic influence as well as on the overall tone of the horoscope of the native. In extreme cases, when this malefic influence is strong, it is supported by other malefic planets and there are no major life supporting planets or planetary combinations in the horoscope of the native under such malefic influences, the native may suffer from a life threatening disease which can trouble him a lot and which can finally claim his life, at a relatively young or very young age.
