Rahu in the 2nd Ketu in the 8th house


Ketu in the 8th house shows a native who early in life became accustomed to sudden, shocking events and things they could not control – such as death or painful upheavals.

They also may have benefitted from others resources and other people’s money, thus their inherent sense of value came from others. Due to these insecurities and a feeling of powerlessness, this will make a person who is very reluctant to rely on others to help them.

Rahu in the 2nd house makes for a person who will work hard to develop their own resources and define their own sense of structure and value. This may make for a greedy individual, a very family oriented one and one that needs to develop self-esteem and self-worth of their own accord. 

They will often rebel strongly against their upbringing, needing to establish their own surrogate family and, often amongst close friends. Along the path to purification of values, there may be excesses in appetites, such as food, alcohol, smoking, etc. There may also be foul language that gets better over time as their values, diet, etc. improve.
