The U.S.eighth house holds Uranus, Mars, Venus, and Jupiter.
Mars here is conjunct Fortuna, and indicates the wealth that would arise from America's industrial machine and its war efforts. Uranus describes the more advanced technologies, the electronic industries, and the independent entrepreneurial spirit that is the guiding philosophy of American capitalism. These two planets in Gemini fulfill themselves most easily through transportation, communication, and media industries.
Venus and Jupiter in early Cancer also reside in the eighth house, and trine the
Ascendant. The material blessings available to most Americans can be seen by these placements, as can the vast financial resources that accumulate in the wealthiest families. The eighth house is the house of collective or shared money, and Venus and Jupiter here describe the capitalist power assumed by insurance, credit, banking, investment, and related financial corporations.
The eighth house is the house of the federal deficit, social security, and the IRS. Any significant budget reform or taxation shifts would correspond to activation of these planets. Transits or progressions to Mars show general budget cuts, interest rate changes, and Defense spending. When Jupiter is activated, expensive government programs are approved, especially those that favor the wealthy. Jupiter in transit, and transits to Jupiter are always present during the stock market's biggest moves and turning points.
