So, lets see what Rahu can do in 8th house without any conjunction or aspect from any other planet. 1st lets see what these 2 things represent -
Rahu represents illusion, foreign lands, foreign things (foreign as in unknown things. So, for someone living in Punjab, culture and rituals of Kerala is also unknown and hence Foreign), Drugs, Medicines, any type of intoxication, fame, wealth, success, obsession, past-life left-over karma, movies, television, online world, cheating, imagined fears, unusual things, unique things, creativity, rule breaker. Rahu also blows things out of proportions.
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, Rahu has 5th and 9th house aspect. He is unable to impact 7th house from its place as Ketu is sitting there, which is the other axis of Rahu and represents all those things which are non-Rahu.
When Rahu is in 8th house, it makes a person highly obsessive about hidden knowledge and occult matters. This position can make a person very good occultist practitioner. Besides this, this position can also make someone a secret service agent or spy for government or in private detective services. As Rahu represents Foreign Lands and 8th house is in-laws family, this position gives in-laws in foreign lands. This person also tries his best to impress in-laws family to get their assets. But over-all great obsession for occult and research.
From 8th house, Rahu aspects 12th house of Foreign Lands, so this position can easity send and keep a person in foreign lands for a long time. It can also make someone a very good surgeon if Mars is supporting the Rahu.
Rahu's next aspect goes to 4th house of home and mother etc. So, these people either have a home in foreign lands or they have very unusual relation with their mother. It may also be that they are raised by foster/step mother.
Tomorrow, Rahu in 9th house.
