It's general and applies to all nativity charts

My family consist of myself and my partner of 30 years. If I don't become less dense that could be in jeopardy also.
Yes, the eighth is not a favourable place. But the configurations are rather favourable, as the Lot of Spirit is angular to the Lot of Fortune, which Valens sees as being positive (though it would be better actually with the Lot of Fortune or in the tenth place from it.) However the eighth place relative to the Ascendant is not doing it any favours at all and if I have to reduce the effectiveness of Mercury in relation to Fortune because it is under the beams (within 15 degrees of the Sun), then I have to apply the same to Spirit.

For some reason when it came down to writing checks for my work they thought I should give them a break even though there was no question if they paid the HVAC guy or the plumber. This was not 100% of the time but more than would be expected.

That might be because your second house of finance is ruled by Jupiter Retrograde in your first and also the second house opposes your Lot of Spirit (assuming the Lot is in the eighth and not the ninth)
