Scorpio and 8th House Types Sensing Death

Scorpio and the 8th house are associated with death. Scorpios and people like me with a heavy duty 8th house are exposed to more than their share of death. Often they can sense a person’s impending death.

I’ve had the experience many times and I’ve been on the other end of it as well. For example, some years ago I was called back for a suspicious mammogram. My partner at the time, with his Sun, Mercury, Venus and Saturn in Scorpio, laughed at the thought I might be ill. He knew I wasn’t.

I frequently know that someone is going to die even when others think they’re not. I also tend to know when people are going to be okay, despite their dire situation. I don’t know how or why this is.  A person is either dead (dying) or they’re not. I don’t recall ever having a strong sense one way or the other and having it be off.

I may not know, but when I do know then I know. I can’t remember the last time someone’s death came as a surprise…or their non-death for that matter.

  1. Capricorn eight house sun and merc which trines pluto in virgo. I can relate to this, my father is dying . . . my mother died suddenly ten years ago, that was a shock. My son is recovering from cancer and I believed he would but to be nine months in hospital with children who are dying from cancer is really tough. I am still haunted, deeply haunted by the trauma of having experienced the death of five children on the oncology ward. There is nothing to describe this, it is so . . . .Holy. Four of them had become friends with my son, death this way takes living to a different level. I’m not normal anymore. I was afraid that I knew that three of them were going to die. It was in the air. although I tried to fight the feelings. I seem to live between the zones. I do often find myself having ‘experiences’ at cemetries, churches. Once I had a powerful spiritual experience only to discover later that I was walking on a viduct that had actually claimed the lives of many suicide victims. Another such place is in the woods next to my home. For years I walked there, feeling mystically inclined and always returning there. I eventually uncovered the fact that 60,000 people had died there during the second World War, people from all over Europe had been sent there, now it’s a woods and pretty fields but it was a concentration camp, ruled by Nazis. The atrocities were enormous, brutality, mass murder of children, families, priests, soldiers French, German, Polish, Russian, Catholics, Jews, Orthodox. Here they were sent on to the bigger death camps. Such a Holy place. I have been researching the truth since and am working towards bringing more recognition of this to light. I feel them, I pray for them and ‘visit’ them . . . or perhaps they are visiting and comforting me.

  2. Neptune and Jupiter (rulers of my Pisces Asc) at either end of the 8th house. I’ve dealt with so much death around me it’s a surprise I don’t work in a connected industry dealing with it. I fear pain or senility
    more than death and believe that our energy continues past death even if it’s only in the memories we leave with others.

  3. Yes, I have a packed 8th house in Capricorn, and Jupiter in Scorpio and I know these things. I can tell when they have given up…I also have a strong sense of when other things are not right in a person, or when they have strong feelings about me…..It can be painful, since I am very empathetic and want to help, but know that I can’t…..

  4. Just to be the control, I am a Scorpio Rising with Uranus in first, and no, I absolutely cannot sense these things. I am often completely taken by surprise. I can sense pregnancy, though, oddly enough. My 8th is empty and ruled by Gemini.

  5. Yes, I’ve sensed this and other times, have “seen” it. My 8th house holds: chart ruler Neptune in Scorpio conjunct scorpio Mars, and it’s ruler Scorpio Venus. I have uranus-pluto-moon conjunct descendant angle.
