Mars and Pluto – the cusp rulers of house 6 – are in house 8 (death). Mars there forecasts violent deaths and the deaths of military personnel.
Saturn – the cusp ruler of house 8 – is in house 7. Saturn there forecasts loss through the actions of other countries, stained relations with foreign powers and grief and suffering due to deaths occurring overseas.
Mars – the cusp ruler of house 11 (Congress) in house 8 (taxes and death) is square Mercury and Uranus in house 11.
