Like Mercury or Venus do you ever feel like you just like keeping certain things a secret?

I mean like things about my personal or love life. And people tell me I shouldn't keep secrets. Because that just means I'm doing something that I shouldn't be doing. But I don't feel that way I just like keeping some things to myself. It's just certain things I don't want people finding out about.

WTF? Who the heck says you shouldn't be keeping secrets? Sounds like manipulative people with issues respecting boundaries. Not everyone needs to know everything anyway Oo You have a right to privacy.

Next time someone says that to you, tell them to describe to you exactly how they have sex with their partner and what they feel or even how they use the toilet. I'm sure they'll be reluctant! Then just tell them they're obviously doing something wrong if they don't want to tell you...

Of course you can keep secrets. I don't like when people absolutely want me to confess. Sometimes they don't understand why I don't want to confess. That's weird, I thought it was normal having a "secret garden"...

I have Mercury conjunct Pluto in Virgo in the 8th house, conjunct my Libra sun (also in the 8th).

It is not as if I prefer to keep everything secret. I just don't reveal it "willy-nilly" to those who would not or could not understand. I am often an open book on this site, among people who understand our archetypal energies/astrology/spirituality. With people in a mundane "work" situation however, I would not be one to jump on the "bashing men" at lunch train (aka complaining about my significant other to all who are in ear range). I also don't reveal things to relatives who would not understand. This makes me seem close-lipped or reluctant to share.

I observe people. People who are genuinely interested in me and my life (who also have some measure of integrity and character) who take the time to ask me well considered questions (as opposed to blurting out prying gossipy questions)are rewarded with rich answers.

In relationships I am fully honest with my partner. The only things he will not know are the things he fails to take the time to explore and listen to me describe. I will even say, "I will tell you more about my experience/relationship with *person/thing* at whatever point you want to discuss it." It is NOT an "oh, well you never asked" situation.

The only things I keep "private" are things I am embarrassed about. Like if I waited too long to change the sheets or take a shower and didn't want anyone to find out. My motto is not to do anything you wouldn't want the whole world to know about. (Unless you are plotting some ReLoveution and hiding it from Darth Vader or something.)

It is easier for me though. I am a Venus/Uranus conjunction, and also a Mars/NN in Aqua in the first so "things things that I don't want the whole world to know about" are a much smaller list than most would embrace.

I don't mind shocking people.
I kind of like it.

Mercury and Venus in 8th house, yes I do feel I keep certain things a secret but there are other things that I can't keep my mouth shut about.

Mercury rules my 8th house and 12th house.

I have Mercury in the 8th house. I also have Venus in the 7th on a Scorpio cusp.

I can definitely keep a secret. I don't know if it's wanting or needing to keep secrets, rather keeping things to myself. Sometimes it's about being ready to share something.

Moon/Venus/SN conjunct the 8th house cusp. I used to keep everything secret. Social anxiety, and just a private person. Problems were mine to deal with, and other things depended on who I was talking to.

I wasn't always intentionally that way. I grew tired of people calling me "mysterious". I wanted to open up, and have those girl friends that you share a lot with. So I started to open up, only to be reminded of why I never did that. Got ditched by someone who had used all these prett words on me, and pretended to care, as my life was going from "worse" to "the stuff of nightmares". Before that, I got a target on my back, high school bullying style, in an online community. That messed me up, because it took me right back to school where I was so quiet and polite. This time, I got angry. It was too much. And my life tanked due to my sister getting abusive, over her husband (my sexual harasser), and my mother becoming an alcoholic. I got the brunt of all of it.

This is why I have no hope, anymore. I'm a lot more open, though. Might as well talk about it all, see who sticks around. If they grab popcorn or blame you for their own failure, they aren't a friend.

I have Sun and Mercury in the 8th House. I don't know if I would call it secret but I keep certain things private. It's call boundaries and building trust.

My life is not for display or lurkers or people who want to judge and gossip.
Privacy is different from secrets. We have secrets, secrets isn't exclusive to the 8th House it's a human thing.

I agree with Mystic Melody

So what does it mean when people say the 8th house is the house of secrets? For example I saw this video on Youtube. The woman talks about how people who have Venus in the 8th house usually have like a secret love life etc. Do you know what it means to have states in the 8th house? I figured it would mean that 8th house themes probably play out. When you are in that specific location. Or that the fact that you are there would be a secret.

8th house relates to taboos. Maybe Venus in 8th house people don't want to talk about their love life, like it's taboo for them...

I have Venus and Jupiter in my 8th house and while I hear people's life stories all the time including from some people that I just met , noone around me (literally noone) knows details about my love life, even about my life in general.

I'm an 8th house sun. People tell me *their* secrets. 😉

More honestly... or more candidly I should say, secrets shared are another way to build intimacy, build trust.

You're right, we should keep our life secret if we want to, even when people ask questions to us. My Sun is in 8th house, or in any case conjunct cuspid of the 8th house... And I'm going to do this : keep secrets if I want to...

For me "not inner" planets count very much too, in general and in the 8th house also, each houses... Maybe it's different, but it counts very much... For example Pluto in 8 th house must be very secret, having taboos.

Are you saying Mercury, Venus or Jupiter wouldn't count in the 8th house? I have a state asteroid in my 8th house. Which conjuncts my Mercury. Would that asteroid count?

Sun/Moon/Mercury/Venus in the 8th house. Iím pretty transparent usually, but have learned to not share deeper things about myself specially if I feel that the other side would not get it nor understand it. Sometimes people are not able to empathise what they canít relate, and some are too self-centered to do so. That makes sharing difficult and I rather not do so.
With my husband I do share everything even if I can get hurt. Because he is the person I have the closest bond with, I do have more expectation of sharing and not keeping secrets. But with other people I simply donít have the need to share everything.

My sister and my male best friend have both all their personals (except mars) in their 8th house (she has a Gemini stellium and he a Libra stellium) and they are annoying as hell. Very intense and impossible to be around for a longer period of time (the intensity becomes unbearable). Both are psychic and (too) sensitive persons, but can also be toxic and draining and sarcastic. Both have sleep and drinking problem and crave extreme experiences. Both are unable to keep a partner.
