So, lets see what Ketu can do in 8th house without any conjunction or aspect from any other planet. 1st lets see what these 2 things represent -
Just like Rahu, Ketu also represents illusion as both are illusionary planets but the difference is that Ketu is also the one who removes the illusion and brings enlightenment. Besides this, Ketu represents isolation, separation, spirituality,mystical world, other dimension means things related to alien world, also represents Son, Dog, Intuition, research ability, curious nature, things which we have already achieved in past life and not much concerned to perform in this life.
8th house is house of secrecy, occult knowledge, longevity, transformation, death and re-birth, In laws family, joint wealth with spouse etc.
Aspect-wise, in Vedic Astrology, Ketu has 5th and 9th house aspect. He is unable to impact 7th house from its place as Rahu is sitting there, which is the other axis of Ketu and represents all those things which are non-Ketu. Although Ketu represents isolation and separation, but interestingly its aspects never isolate and separate a person from the things represented by house it is aspecting. Ketu only makes a person curious and research oriented and motivates a person to research about it.
Now, Ketu is where it naturally belongs, in 8th house. Planet of Mysticism, Research and Occult is in the house of Secrecy, Occult and Mysteries etc. These people are born researchers, spies, secret agents, detectives etc. Tell them to research anything and they will happily do it for the longest of hours. Leave them to research over something and you don't even need to ask them for food. They can research on their topics of interest for hours. Great Astrologers are seen from this position, as they can dig deep and deep into Astrological matters and concepts. Any type of research work should be their profession. This is 2nd of the Moksha Houses and as Ketu represents Liberation, this is 2nd position where Ketu can lead a person towards Moksha/Salvation.
From 8th house, Ketu aspects the 12th house of Spirituality and Isolation and 4th House of home land, home and mother etc. Again, all moksha margi houses are involved. So, it is all about researching about occult, mystical and spiritual world and seek liberation.
Tomorrow, Ketu in 9th house.
