The 8th house is Pluto's house the house of transformation. Things are not really as they appear with Pluto. Pluto is said to be a icy planet on the outside but below are roaring oceans. This roaring ocean is representative of our repressed or controlled feelings. We appear cool on the outside, but down below passions, fears, and anger are pushing to the top. Hense Pluto's explosiveness.
If these repressed or controlled feelings, needs or emotions are not willingly brought out, they will be forced out and often in a compulsive or even explosive way.
This is part of Pluto's atomic purge, what is deep inside must be released. Pluto can not keep things suppressed for long, they will eventually burst out much like a volcano and any planet that transits this house will be forced to do so, in areas the planet represents.

It would help to Keep in mind during transit, that the people that you are likely to let these repressed emotions out might not have any idea you felt the way you do. Remember these are repressed or hidden emotions.
Unless you have been over it time and time again, even so it's your fault for not letting out, or for not being honest with your true inner needs. The people in your life are only giving you what you allow, right or wrong.
So now is the time to set the record straight and begin anew. Change is needed in the deeper areas of your life and particularly areas of emotional fulfillment or support.
