I’m not sure why the eighth house gives people pause. It might be because it is associated with Scorpio, a sign with an undeserved reputation for being dark and troublesome. There is nothing better or worse about the eighth house than any of the other houses.
Scorpio, and the eighth house it rules, often put us in a position of having to deal with the basic underpinnings of life – birth, death and transformation. It makes sense the financial matters related to the eighth house include taxes and money we inherit from people [...]

Walking about taking in the incredible rich golden colors of the leaves lead me to thinking about the phoenix rising from the flames and then to that rare bird, the Scorpio Phoenix.
This is the one who has passed through some type of traumatic experience, causing them to gradually leave their old ways of thinking and being behind. This process can take many years just as Scorpio’s ruler, Pluto, takes many years to traverse a sign.
