An eighth house stellium brings intesity into one's life especialy when that stellium is intercepted. Compact and strong with all five planets in Leo including the ruling planet the Sun. It's like being inside a boiler the heat is so strong it literally cooks a person like in Alchemy. One is driven with a passion to locate the truth of any question, especially the question about life and it's meaning. Why are we here and what's our purpose? There is the constant question of "why" ,which of course is an unanswerable question, for it's purpose is to lead one to awareness of change to all things in the material world. The higher consciouness leads us like one would lead little birds with specks of bread crumbs down the path towards truth and awareness to all the levels of being.
With Venus exactly in conjunction with Pluto and being part of this stellium one is lead down to Hades or the Underworld and there encounters the reality of life and death and the meaning of love. For love and death are connected they are different sides of the same coin. Love is the flower above ground and death the root of experiences in life that is the nurturer of our very being.
I have been a practitioner of astrological research since the beginning of 1982; at which time I had a near death experience which changed my life in many ways, one of which was an encounter with Astrology that lead to many awakenings in my travels through life.
The past 27 years have been devoted to study and research into various religious culture's and psychology,these being Kabbalah, Gematria, C.G.Jung and their relationships to Astrology.
A small collection of my research work was published in Aspect Magazine.
A stellium is at least 3 planets in close aspect, more intense if contained within one house and one sign. This unites the engeries into one intense lazer beam which is able to extract precise layers of information from time and space.
