There are many elements in astrology that can be associated with death. It may be tied in to the natal chart, transits, and progressions. There can be astrological indicators of a long life, a shorter one, a volatile death, or a peaceful one. I will talk about some indicators of how, when, where this can take place based on the 8th house and Pluto.

I want to give people some forewarning as to the possible when/where/how connected with one's passing, and take precautions in these matters.


This is not meant to be morbid, but to provide insight. A person, like myself, who has an astrological indicator of death via liver disease, can be aware to take precautions such as not indulging an alcoholic drinks. maintaining a normal weight, and avoid reckless behavior. Death is a proponent of life, yet many refuse to see it that way.

As far as astrology and death goes, one important proponent is the 8th house cusp.

The sign of the 8th house cusp can give some astrological indication of death. It may either describe a kind of death or the conditions at the time of death.


Here are some clues based on the 8th house in certain zodiac signs or planetary positions that can reveal information on death, per astrology.

1. The 8th House and the sign of Capricorn.

Someone with Capricorn on the cusp of the 8th house may have some kind of despondency or sadness associated with their death this could indicate greater longevity in the person they live a longer than average life or something Capricorn related may be connected with the death such as bone cancer.

2. Planets in the 8th house can flavor death as well.

The case involving Coral Lytle is one of these examples. In astrology, each house reveals something about a person's dark side and the traits that are socially unfavorable to their personality. When found in a person's natal chart and a planetary return takes place, involving the planets in the 8th house you can discover potential deviances.

3. Mars in the 8th house can suggest a volatile death, but that doesn't mean it's your fated destiny.

The house the ruler of the 8th falls into in one's natal chart can be the area or sector of life in which a person may potentially die. In my chart, for example, I have the ruler of the 8th house in the 6th house of health. This can indicate a proclivity to die through some debilitating illness.

The ruler of the 8th house is Jupiter in Libra at a critical degree, the 26th. This could be from a distorted/enlarged kidney issue or could be associated with liver disease, since Jupiter is associated with the liver.

It also makes an inconjunct to my Ascendant, which of course is the physical body. Inconjuncts can often be about health-related issues.


Let's take Pluto in the natal chart now. Someone with Pluto in the 4th house, for example, may die in the home or death may occur in presence of family members. Someone with Pluto in the 6th house may die in connection with the debilitating health issue.

4. Pluto can also be involved in the indication of death or illness.

Pluto in the 9th house can manifest in one dying in another country.

Legendary singer John Denver had Pluto in the 3rd house in Leo conjunct the North Node. His death was dramatic and attention-getting (Leo), associated with a short journey (3rd)and sadly may have been destined (North Node).

Transits associated with Pluto can be significant, as well, as this could possibly factor in to the death of the person. When David Bowie died, transit Pluto was conjunct his natal Sun in Capricorn.


Pluto, of course is associated with death, and the Sun is associated with life.

Sometimes Pluto can obliterate life. This also occurred in Bowie's 12th House of endings.When Raniya Wright died earlier this year as a result of an altercation in school, transit Pluto was making a long opposition to her natal Sun in Cancer (likely at critical 29th degree).

Pluto, planet of death, was opposing her Sun, planet of life. With her Sun in Cancer likely at 29th degree, there may have been issues with vitality and Cancer is not known for a robust constitution and recuperative powers.

Her mother had transit Pluto in the 5th house (solar chart) of children at the time. I don't believe Arabic Parts in astrology are insignificant and they could factor into death in some instances. One of Martin Luther King Jr.'s Arabic Parts of Assassination was in Pisces, at a critical degree, in his 11th house.


Perhaps he was assassinated over a dream or ideal. This also could have been tied in to some organization or group The fact that this sign/house was intercepted may have made it more difficult to see it coming. His progressed Sun was in Pisces at the time of the assassination, at 4 degrees, making a very tight conjunction to his natal Part of Assassination.

5. The Sun rules life, while assassination, of course, eradicates life.

My North Node is at 4 degrees Pisces, making a very close conjunction to his natal Part of Assassination and progressed Sun, so perhaps I was destined to shed some metaphysical light on this, pun intended.

One should never underestimate progressions in astrology, as well In Carl Sagan's progressed chart at the time he died, Pluto made a conjunction to his Ascendant. Pluto again, connected with death, and the Ascendant is the physical body.


In his progressed chart, he also had the Sun in the six House of Health make an opposition to Pluto. Adverse aspects between the Sun and Pluto can be indicators of death I believe. Ironically, he was somebody that vehemently opposed astrology.

What's interesting is if he had a better idea or conception of the subject besides superficial knowledge, he may have had an understanding that this could have been a perilous time for him.

6. Sometimes Pluto transits can impact many collectively as far as something perilous goes.

On January 17th, 1995, there was a prodigious volcanic eruption that took place in Kobe, Japan. Transit Pluto was at 29.59 degrees in turbulent Scorpio. Pluto again, associated with death, and it was in the sign of death and destruction at its full culmination, 29 degrees. Also, a Full Moon occurred on this day at this time with the Sun in Capricorn almost in exact opposition to the Moon in Cancer at a critical degree, the 26th.


Full Moons, I believe, can give strong proclivity for volcanic activity. Also, Uranus was in a close conjunction with the Sun. this could "shine the light," so to speak, on something disastrous and catastrophic.

There may have been as many as about 6,400 people killed as a result of the eruption. In summation, there are many elements in astrology that may correlate with one's death. However, one should not become overly fixated on this or worry it to death.

Transits by Pluto, e.g., can mean much more than matters with death. It can also be about transformation, surgery, obsession, rebirth, an ending not related to death, to name a few. What's important, perhaps, is to simply love astrology to death.
