Taurus in the 8th House

When Taurus is in your 8th House, you might be very cautious when dealing with money. You might be very afraid of financial losses and having no control of your finances. You may attract a partner who is wealthy. Additionally, as a 8th House Taurus, you might be reluctant to take risks regarding your assets and money.

To understand what it means when a sign lands in a house on your natal chart, you need to look at the meaning of the house, meaning of the sign, and how they interact:

  • The 8th House represents fears, the things in our life we have no control over, shared assets, investments, loans, debt. It also represents our sexuality, the person we are in our private life, who we are in secret.
  • Taurus is a fixed earth sign. It brings stability, rationality and stubbornness.
  • When Taurus is in the 8th House, it means that you might be very cautious of taking any risks related to money. On the positive side, it may show that you are unlikely to fall into debt or any potentially risky financial situations. On the negative side, it may show that this reluctance may lead to lack of financial growth in the future.

What Does it Mean with Taurus is in the 8th House?

8th House Meaning

The 8th house tells us about our finances – especially ones we share with other people. It represents shared assets with a partner and inheritance. It represents our investments – what we put our money into, how we deal with money. It can show loans and debt, it can show financial struggles or gains.

We learn a lot about our intimate relationships. How we deal with intimacy, how easily we allow other people in our life and close to ourselves. It shows the hidden or secretive side of us.

The 8th House is also connected to the things we keep private in our life, the things we have a hard time talking about in front of others people. It shows the things we view as taboo or danger.

The house is connected to regeneration – the personal transformation we go through in our life.

Taurus Traits

As an earth sign, Taurus helps us to be more realistic and rational in our approach. When Taurus influences aspects of our life, it’s likely that it will help us react with logic rather than emotions.

We use our logic to help us solve anything we encounter in a practical manner.

As s fixed sign, Taurus is a sign that can be prone to stagnation. If something works, they are unlikely to change it in any way. This may lead to staying in the same place for a while and feeling reluctant when any offers for improvement come up.

Taurus is also a very stubborn sign and taking advice from others may seem impossible. They prefer handling things in their own terms and with their own plans.

This can show that Taurus is likely to be very cautious of the decisions they make regarding their money. They are likely to have a lot of luck in their intimate relationships with people and opening up to others is unlikely to be something they have trouble with. They might be afraid of the unfamiliar so they are unlikely to take big risks throughout their life.

3. You may have a rational approach to fear and problems

Taurus is an Earth sign, so rationality and thoughtfulness might be some of their strongest qualities. The 8th house could be the house that makes us act in an irrational manner, the house that brings out a very different side of us – an unexpected side of us.

Despite that, having Taurus on the 8th house cusp may show that we are likely to be very patient with ourselves, especially when dealing with a more serious issue. You are likely to take your time and make a plan when handling any problem you are currently facing.

4. You value loyalty in others

The 8th House represents our most private and hidden side, the side of ourselves we are unlikely to show just anyone. We might be very secretive about that part of us or our life. Therefore, when we allow people to see that side of us, we have to trust them completely.

Having Taurus in the 8th house makes you value the people you trust. You may show them eternal gratitude – you might make very big gestures for them just to show your appreciation for them.

Moreover, when you have a relationship that is this close and intimate, you are likely to give the same loyalty and treatment in return.

5. You may fear financial loss or uncertainty

Taurus is the sign associated with money. For them, money represents security, comfort, stability – it can also show opportunity to do the things they want.

Since the 8th house shows our fears, what we fear of facing, people with Taurus in the 8th house are likely to be very afraid of facing financial struggles. Any financial loss, any risky moves or decisions related to their money and assets, may send them to a downward spiral. Due to that, they may be very conscious when handling  any financial situation.


With Taurus in the 8th House of your natal chart, you are likely to be very conscious and thoughtful when doing anything related to your money and assets. You are likely to have a wealthy partner or create wealth with your partner. You might be very patient and rational when dealing with any fears or struggles.

Remember that you need to look at the rest of your natal chart to make a better prediciton of your natural personality traits. Other elements on your natal chart may override some of these points (and I’ve tried to note that a few times in this article).
