Ashtama Shani represents 2.5 years time when Shani transits through the 8th Rashi as counted from Janma Rashi (where Chandra or Moon is situated in horoscope).
Presently in the transit of Jan 2017 to Jan 2020, Shani is transiting through Dhanur Rashi or Sagittarius Moon Sign and those who are born with Chandra/Moon in Vrishabha Rashi will be going through Ashtama Shani.
Ashtama Shani generally gives sorrow due to children, loss of wealth, treachery from friends, near-dear ones, new diseases or resurfacing of old/chronic diseases, unexpected quarrels, accident due to vehicle, sepearation from family- mentally or physically, fire, theft at home or office.
The Number 8 is associated with sudden, jerky movements and you may be faced with sudden events- ofcourse unpleasant ones that will shake your core and teach you a lesson that you wont forget in a hurry.
This transit “holds” the person down in one place and he/she feels constricted. No travel indicates feeling of confinement. There is also a feeling of frustration and it seems though there is obstruction and impediments in all walks of life. Persons going through this transit do not seem to get support from others, including close family members.
8th house transit also indicates loss of close relatives. 8th house transit of any of the slow moving planets is indicative of unexpected gains through inheritance. This is a good transit to sit and reflect, start new research topic. Overall work related to research will be good and beneficial. Financial difficulties are indicated. Do not gamble. Expenditure will be very high and savings will deplete. Creativity will be limited.
During this period, the concerned Rashi people(Vrishabha Rashi or Taurus moon Sign for the year 2017-2020) may face unwanted expenditures, legal wrangles, involvement in disputes/court cases, tiresome travels, unexpected transfers(for employed people), accidents and in some cases surgery may also be involved. In some cases this period may see death in the family also.
Saturn’s transit through the 8th house from Moon causes losses and sorrow. One meets disappointments. Infamy and fear from law hovers in the background. Separation from progeny takes place. Life partner’s health causes concern and possibility of bereavement exists. Bad company and gambling tendency causes many problems.
