Retrograde Saturn in 8th House in Aries
When retrograde Saturn is placed in the eighth house of a horoscope in Aries, Virgo rises in the ascendant. Saturn rules the fifth and sixth house. In general, it is partly benefic and partly malefic here, though the benefic part is higher, in most cases. The concept of various planets exhibiting tendencies to be benefic or malefic on the basis of the houses they rule in a horoscope has been explained in the book ‘Gemstones: Magic or Science?’.
Retrograde Saturn in the eighth house of horoscope in Aries is benefic in many cases, though it may turn malefic in some cases. It may happen when such Saturn is influenced by one or more malefic planets, and/or an overall malefic horoscope. The concept of a benefic planet turning malefic due to influences of malefic planets has been explained in the book ‘Match Making and Manglik Dosh’.
When benefic in nature, retrograde Saturn in the eighth house of a horoscope in Aries can bless the native with good results related to love life, children, creativity, spiritual growth, profession, finances, reputation, authority, recognition, fame and several other good results, depending on his/her overall horoscope and running times.
Such retrograde Saturn can render creativity and/or spiritual growth to the native. It can also render various types of good results to the native, related to or through his children. For example, the native may not witness any complications during the birth processes of his children. He may have children who may be physically, intellectually, emotionally, creatively and/or spiritually better or much better than average. Such children may achieve a lot in many spheres of their lives, and they may bring good name and many other good results to the native.
Looking at profession, such retrograde Saturn can help the native achieve success as a researcher, analyst, lawyer, astrologer, religious guru, teacher, preacher, consultant, actor, singer, musician, writer, dancer, sportsman, artist, architect, designer, developer, professional dealing in real estate industry, iron, steel, automobile, IT, health, pharma, fitness, media, finance, education, coaching, movie, television, music, sports, travel, food, hotel, airline, telecom, internet industry or some other type of professional, depending on his overall horoscope and running times.

Benefic retrograde Jupiter forms Hamsa Yoga in the seventh house in Pisces, Sun is placed in the twelfth house in Leo, benefic Rahu is placed in the fourth house in Sagittarius, Ketu is placed in the tenth house in Gemini, and benefic debilitated Venus is placed in the first house in Virgo with Mars and benefic Moon. In this case, the native may start a company which may manufacture automobiles like cars, and he may witness good amount of success, money and recognition.
If benefic exalted Mercury is placed in the first house in Virgo with Venus, Moon and Mars, the equation may become better. Mercury forms Bhadra Yoga in the first house whereas Mercury and Venus form Neechbhanga Rajyoga in the same house. In this case, the native may come across very good amount of success, money and recognition through automobile industry. His business may expand after his age of 35/40, and it may keep growing. If the finer factors and running times are supportive, he may own a business empire worth in billions, by his age of 55/60.
Such retrograde Saturn can bless the native with authority in government as a police officer, army, air force, naval, revenue, administrative, foreign services officer, judge, doctor, scientist, engineer, politician or some other type of professional. Kindly read book for detailed example.
On the other hand, malefic retrograde Saturn in the eighth house of a horoscope in Aries can trouble the native with problems related to love life, children, health, lifespan, profession, finances, reputation, authority, recognition and several other problems, depending on his/her overall horoscope and running times.
Saturn rules the fifth and sixth house, and it is placed in the eighth house. If such retrograde Saturn is influenced by malefic planets, and/or an overall malefic horoscope, the native may witness various types of health problems which may trouble him, and they may reduce his lifespan. He may also witness reduction in lifespan due to several other reasons. The native may also witness problems related to children, and such problems may aggravate if the native is female. She may witness delay in childbirth, medical complications, miscarriages, abortions, and/or birth of dead children. She may give birth to children who may be physically and/or mentally troubled. In an extreme case, she may die while giving birth to a child, and even the child may die with her.
Taking an example for a female native, suppose retrograde Saturn is placed in the eighth house of a horoscope in Aries with Moon. Malefic Rahu is placed in the twelfth house in Leo with Jupiter, malefic Ketu is placed in the sixth house in Aquarius, and benefic debilitated Mercury is placed in the fourth house in Pisces with malefic Sun. Guru Chandal Yoga is formed in the twelfth house. In this case, the native may not get married till her age of 35 or 40. She may have an affair with a married man. She may give birth to a child from such affair, but her lover may refuse to marry her or claim the child. She may have to raise the child on her own, or she may also give up the child, for adoption.
If retrograde Venus is placed in the sixth house in Aquarius with Ketu, and malefic Mars is placed in the fourth house in Pisces with Mercury and Sun, the equation may become more troublesome. In this case, the native may become mistress of a rich criminal. She may have one or two children from the relationship, but she may never get married to their father. If the finer factors and running times are very bad, she as well as her children may get killed, in an attack by a rival criminal gang. The native may die between her age of 30 and 40.
