Saturn in 8th house predisposes to long life, but often also to slow death, after a prolonged chronic illness. In the best cases, if the planet is looking good, the end will come by natural death. These people are afraid of death and the hereafter, and, in general, of everything mysterious and unknown, including in it also sex and instincts, with the possibility of suffering impotence or frigidity.
Often, that fear is hidden or hidden behind rigid and strict religious moralisms, for this reason it is common to find this position in many saints who were distinguished by their great asceticism, such as Saint Teresa of Jesus.
However, people who have Saturn in the 8th house also show a tendency to repress instincts and sex, either for moralism or for life imperatives, which is compensated by a great ambition for power and money.
Apart from everything mentioned, this position of Saturn is unfavorable for inheritances, legacies, and for money from the spouse or associates. The spouse will not only not help to improve the economic situation but will generally be the other way around, placing a burden on these natives.
On the other hand, they need to be very careful with investments and speculations, because they can easily lead to losses. Inheritances will come late, and can be accompanied by abundant burdens and problems. If Saturn is afflicted, there is danger of death in accident or execution.
