The planet Mars represents courage, aggression, willpower to face difficult situations and physical energy. It is the significator of younger brother or sister in the birth chart. The mars in the houses give results depending upon what is the sign in the house and its relationship with the lord of that sign. We must know the characteristics of the Mars before knowing the results of the Mars in the eighth house which are as follows:

The Mars would give good results only if its own signs (Aries or Scorpio) falls in the eighth house. In that case, the person would be long-lived and happy throughout the life. He would be free from chronic diseases and have a good relationship with the in-laws. He would receive monetary benefit from the spouse(Husband or Wife).
If the Mars is the lord of an Angle (Kendra) or a Trine (Trikona), it destroys the good significations of those houses. If it is the lord of other Dushtana houses, this placement gives good results but affects the longevity and the relationship with the spouse.
The eighth house represents the reproductive organs (Secret Parts). If the Mars is in the sign of debilitation (Cancer), it gives problems related to sexual organs. If it is under heavy malefic affliction, it gives chronic diseases and accidents in life. It also gives danger to the spouse life (Being Marak place to the seventh house), problems to father (Being twelfth to the ninth house) and bad luck to the person.
