Izabela Podlaska-Konkel, “The Secrets of the 8th House”

The 8th house is quite infamous among astrologers. Throughout the centuries it has been considered a house of loss, fear and even death. In the 20th century, humanistic astrologers assigned big money, sex and hidden, sinful pleasures to this house. However, is it really as black as it’s often painted? I shall investigate its old and new meanings and look at examples of how they have changed over the past few centuries. The lecture is for astrologers of all levels.

Izabela Podlaska-Konkel has been a professional astrologer for many years. She teaches astrology and tarot at the Warsaw School of Astrology and publishes on popular astrological websites: Astroportal.pl and Czary.pl. She is the author of two books: The Horary Astrology in Practice (2017) and The Astrology Textbook (co-authored with Miłosława Krogulska, 2014). She is the NCGR Poland Delegate and the president of the Astrologers’ Association in Poland. Visit her at www.izabelapodlaska.pl Contact her at iza.podlaska@gmail.com

FROM LYNN KOINER:  I first heard Iza give this lecture at the Chicago UAC conference.  At first, she commented upon the old interpretations of the 8th House and I thought that this might be IT.  However, she soon went into the “meat” of the 8th House, the core meaning of the House and I knew that she GOT the deeper meaning of this House. I have studied the 8th House since the 1980s (I have many 8th House friends) and I know what this House does – Iza gives another view of this House and a very accurate view.  Her English is excellent.

CRISIS LUNATIONS for 2022:
CRISES NEW MOONS:  January 2, February 1, December 23
CRISES FULL MOONS:  April 16, May 16 (lunar eclipse), June 14, July 13, August 12
Crisis Lunation periods occurs when, at the time that the Moon is New or Full, the Moon is physically very close to the earth. This closeness-lunation parallel will amplify our emotional reactions, bringing matters to a crisis point. This Crisis Moon period usually begins about one week before the New/Full Moon and lasts several days afterward.

I find that you are only affected by one of the Crisis Moon periods, usually one that falls close to a natal planet.
When a crisis arises, my advice is always to “stay calm, relax and make no impulsive decisions for at least a week.” The most critical are eclipses. The most potent occurred on April 15, 1995, because it occurred at the time of a Lunar Eclipse. Of course, the event it portended was the Oklahoma City bombing as the Eclipse fell on the ASC/DESC axis over that city. The WTC/Pentagon attack occurred within a wide orb of a Crisis Lunation.  The US invaded Iraq on a Crisis Full Moon in March 2003.

I remember one example – a father called about his daughter who had run away from home about 4 days before the CFM. I told him
what was occurring and that he should wait for about a week and she would likely return home….and she did. After the effects of the CFM were over, she became rational again.  Hormones and a CFM are not a good mix!

During the year, there are generally 4 Crisis New Moons and 4 Crisis Full Moons. There is usually only ONE of these CFMs that hits you — generally, not all of them … and you cannot always tell which one it is going to be.

When it hits, you go crazy and your emotions are magnified. But, when the Moon begins to move away from the earth, we calm down.  I am a Virgo so a rational explanation is very satisfying for me. If I know that I am feeling this way because of some astrological/astronomical configuration, it makes it seem OK and I feel much better.

Yet, there are times when events occur that are not transient.  During a Crises Lunation in 2013, I had an automobile accident and, at another Crises Lunation in 2015, after getting out of jail, this man with whom I had the accident tried to sue me for total disability, hoping that I would not show up in New Jersey for the deposition.

In January 2019, at the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Crises Lunation, I received a message that my dad had passed away while I was in Switzerland.

August 2019 had a Crisis New Moon at the beginning and at the end of the month.  This is somewhat like a Blue Moon month.  The Blue Moon (see a short article on my website) is a Full Moon at the beginning and end of the month.  It is my experience that it is like an entire month of Full Moon crises and tension.

August being bracketed by a Crises New Moon is like a month of crises – at least for me.  I had a dental crisis, my sweet cat was very ill, and the non-profit that runs my farm has taken all of the joy out of farming for me.  They say that the lease will be to protect me when it is only to give them more power and control over me.  Yes, I have a good lawyer.  The positive – I will be free from worrying about the gardens.

The Crises New Moon occurred on my birthday, August 30, 2019.  A lunation occurring on or within a day of one’s birthday will trigger a major change within the coming year.  This works even if it is not a Crises Lunation.  The major change was in my home – major renovations and Bill moved in with me. 

At the March 2020 CFM, I had a terrible panic attack at night – I thought I was going to have a heart attack.  In August and September, with the CNMs, there were so many plumbing problems.  My pipes are mostly from the 1930s so they are in bad shape.  For what it is worth, the Transiting NN was crossing my natal Mars in Gemini.  I got hit a lot because, during the November CNM, my old desktop started to grind and make a lot of noise.  Just as I was about to take it to Ellicott City to a repair shop, my lawyer came by and told me about a mutual friend a couple of blocks away and he fixed it for $20!!!  It just needed cleaning and oiling.

GOOD DATES/PERIODS for MAY 2022 – All times are ET

MAY 1-2:  The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and it is well aspected from 8pm EDT on May 1 through May 2 at 6 am EDT.  This is an excellent time for relationships and cooperative interaction with others.  It favors finances, working with the support of a group (yet working alone), creative enterprises and intuitive practices.

MAY 7:  The Moon is in the sign of Cancer and, between 5am and 6 am EDT, there is a favorable aspect to Jupiter in Pisces.  This is an excellent period – albeit, a short period – for finalizing some project or endeavor.  Actually, all day on May 5-6, the Moon makes excellent aspects but there will be a complication arising that forces you to eliminate the extraneous, complications and simplify your work.  Be prepared for this “hiccough” when starting on the earlier dates.

MAY 19-20:  The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn and it forms favorable aspects from 5 pm on the 19 through 7:45 am EDT on May 20.  This is a similar period to May 7th when practical matters will run smoothly but there is a “hiccough” with Pluto forcing you to eliminate the extraneous, complications and simplify your work.

MAY 23-24 (until 5pm EDT):  The Moon is in the sign of Pisces and it makes all favorable aspects during this period.  It favors education and learning experiences, expansive communications, loyal relationships and intense mental activity.  The last aspect is a conjunction with Mars in a weak sign, Pisces.  Mars favors cutting off or cutting away to your benefit.  You may have to fight for what you want but it is best served with humanitarian, recreative, creative and spiritual activities.  Fighting for another or a cause is favorable for Mars in Pisces.

NOTE:  Years ago, I bought a copier when the last aspect was a conjunction with Mars – since I knew the salesman would cut the price and he did.

NOTE TO READER: These dates are based upon electional techniques.  All of the Moon sign dates apply to everyone.  Do not simply read your own Moon sign – read all of the signs for what I say about the specific dates.  The Moon sign information will NOT describe the day, only the outcome if you initiate something important on that day.

—————–

 * CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19):   Everything is about to change this month – even the world is about to change.  Open your eyes and walk away from stressful situations.  With Pluto as an Ending Planet, many will find it necessary to eliminate all that you have outgrown, complications and wasteful, extraneous activities.

            MAY 19-20:  The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn and it forms favorable aspects from 5 pm on the 19 through 7:45 am EDT on May 20.  This is a similar period to May 7th when practical matters will run smoothly but there is a “hiccup” with Pluto forcing you to eliminate the extraneous, complications and simplify your work.

* AQUARIUS (January 20-February 17):   You feel a lot of energy and enthusiasm for life and your projects.  However, this is a good month to get away, to go to a new location in order to gain a new perspective upon your life, relationships and your personal goals.  Pay off debts, curb spending and offer generosity to those in need.  This is a very difficult time for many.

            The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius on May 20-21.  After 3pm EDT on the 21st, the Moon crosses Mercury R, sextiles Venus in Aries and ends with a conjunction to Saturn in Aquarius.  Mercury R favors changing your plans when you spot the need for revision.  The last aspect to Saturn is only favorable when you allow more time for revisions and changes, when you allow an older person to assist you and when you see delays as opportunities to make necessary changes.

* PISCES (February 18-March 19):  Be careful of rash, impulsive actions that you may later regret.  Take a safe passage away from a stressful situation – do not “burn your bridges” but simply exit gracefully.  This is a month to curb spending and allow your resources to grow.  Mercury is Retrograde so you could regret financial activities.

MAY 23-24 (until 5pm EDT):  The Moon is in the sign of Pisces and it makes all favorable aspects during this period.  It favors education and learning experiences, expansive communications, loyal relationships and intense mental activity.  The last aspect is a conjunction with Mars is a weak sign, Pisces.  Mars favors cutting off or cutting away to your benefit.  You may have to fight for what you want but it is best served with humanitarian recreative, creative and spiritual activities.  Fighting for another or a cause is favorable for Mars in Pisces.

*  ARIES (March 19-April 19):  You may have dealings with one in authority.  He is resourceful but there is a “snake in the grass” around him.  He needs to be careful.  If you are an authority, this applies to you.  New and suppressed talents will be awakened this month.  You will be with other like-minded people.  Your work will be energetic – more fun than stressful in working with others.
The Moon is in the sign of Aries late on May 24 through the 26th.  It makes many good aspects but, in the end, there could relationship problems that cause complications.  An important person may drop out and leave for something much better as this transit commences.  What you do not know can hurt you.  Complications will become stumbling stones.  Your facts or research may not be accurate.

* TAURUS (April 20-May 20):   The month commences with some difficulties – feeling poor or trapped in a frustrating situation.  By month’s end, you will have a WISH GRANTED.  As the time approaches, make the wish. 

            The Moon is in the sign of Taurus on April 30-May 1.  The Moon starts out with a Solar Eclipse at 10 Taurus, important if you have a planet at this degree.  Solar eclipses, if conjunct the Sun, give energy and recognition.  The Moon forms favorable aspects from 5 pm on the 19 through 7:45 am EDT on May 20.  This is a lucky period with positive and supportive relationships. when practical matters will run smoothly but there is “hiccough” with Pluto forcing you to eliminate the extraneous, complications and simplify your work.

            The Moon is in the sign of Taurus on May 27-29.  There are good aspects but you need to avoid complicated relationships and financial situations.  There are favorable aspects from 4am to 10 am EDT on May 29.  You feel a lot of energy.  You need to review and go over papers and decisions for any errors.  The Moon ends with a trine to Pluto.  You can find support from a group.  You need to make necessarily corrections where there are mistakes and you need to streamline and weed out any complications.

* GEMINI (May 21-June 20):   With Pluto transiting the Ending Degrees, this is a time to finish up projects so that you can move forward into a new cycle.  Get the work done first.  There is a male authority figure around you but there is someone not trustworthy around him.  At some point, you need to step back, get away or do something outside of your comfort zone in order to gain a new perspective upon your life, your relationships or your work.

            The Moon is in the sign of Gemini on May 2-4 but there are afflictions to Mars-Neptune-Jupiter so unrealistic expectations will lead to disappointment.  Promises will not be fulfilled.  If you act on exaggerations, this will prove very costly in the end.

            The Moon is in the sign of Gemini again on May 29-31.  The Moon actually makes great aspects and there is a New Moon at 9 Gemini.  Since the last aspect is a trine to Saturn, you can succeed if you allow help from an older, more organized person who may be with you for an extended period.  For success, you must exercise careful, well-organized long-range planning.  However, there is a “hiccough!”  Before the last aspect, the Moon squares Neptune so that someone may deceive you and not be there for you when you need them.  Do not rely upon such a person.

* CANCER (June 21-July 22):   There is a woman with resources who can benefit you this month.  She is benevolent as well as successful with finances.  You might be confronted with many choices this month.  Seek out the choice that has positive spiritual implications – the glitzy ones will be disappointing.  This is a good month to make plans for travel, possibly a cruise.  There will be a lot of changes or reorganizing with finances.  This is a good thing.

            MAY 7:  The Moon is in the sign of Cancer and, between 5am and 6 am EDT, there is a favorable aspect to Jupiter in Pisces.  This is an excellent period – albeit, a short period – for finalizing some project or endeavor.  Actually, all day on May 5-6, the Moon makes excellent aspects but there will be a complication arising that forces you to eliminate the extraneous, complications and simplify your work.  Be prepared for this “hiccough” when starting on the earlier dates.

* LEO (July 23-August 22):  The is a saving/non-spending month for you.  Allow your resources to grow.  If not, you will feel poor all month.  This is a powerful month for relationship – people may be guided into your life by your Spirit Guide. Socialize rather than spend.

            The Moon is in the sign of Leo on May 7-8.  The aspects start out smoothly but end up with disruptions due to a square to the Sun-Uranus and ending with an opposition to Saturn.  You may suddenly experience disruptions, a problem with one is authority, ending with delays and lots of red tape that cause your endeavor to fail.

* VIRGO (August 23-September 22):   This is a great transitional period for you – with Endings followed by New Beginnings.  Socializing with friends is favored this month.  Being with friends takes your mind off of any worries (Virgo always worries, trust me).  Finish up work and projects this month so that the new beginnings can manifest.

            The Moon is in the sign of Virgo on May 10-11 but this is definitely not a good time to commence with any project or activity of importance.  Mercury turns Retrograde, Jupiter changes signs (something gets dropped) and this is followed by oppositions to Mars and Neptune.  There can be a dispute followed by a deception.  The last aspect is a trine to Pluto so you can rescue the project by eliminating the complications and non-essentials.

* LIBRA (September 23-October 22):    Making a choice is always difficult for Libra but this month will be particularly problematic.  There are two people in your life – an indulgent woman and a rigid male.  This may not seem like much of a choice but it will be.  One offers structure and the other offers freedom.  But, freedom always has a price.

            The Moon is in the sign of Libra on May 12 and 13.  There are many good aspects during this transit but the difficult aspects involve relationships – relationships that prove complicated and prove costly.  Nothing should be permanent at this time.

.

* SCORPIO (October 23-November 21):   In your work activities and projects, you will feel on top of everything – nothing that you cannot handle.  There has been a stressful situation in your life that has left you somewhat exhausted.  You cannot fix every problem but everything is about to change for the better.  There is a beneficial woman around you, possibly a woman who likes cats.  Be a cat lover this month.

            The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio on May 14-15, the time of a Lunar Eclipse that is a Crises Full Moon.  This is definitely not a time to start anything of importance as something stressful will eclipse the matter.

* SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21):   There will be a great awakening for you this month – an awareness of something long buried in your past.  This is a good thing.  This is not a good month to rely upon another for money since they hold tightly onto what they have.  They are not willing to change.  This is a good month to make plans for travel and/or education.
The Moon is in Sagittarius on May 16 and 17.  While this could be a good month for you to champion a humanitarian cause, this is not a good period in your personal life since there can be misunderstandings and even deception whereby some facts are omitted.
