Second House in the Complete Horoscope

Your Resources in Classical Astrology

Second House in the horoscope.
The personal resources,
spiritual and material riches
out of one's own capacity.


The 2nd House is all about your personal resources, talents and strengths you carry with you no matter what. That's why it's also related to money, although that certainly comes and goes.



       The House shows how you manage your financial affairs. But what the 2nd House is really about is your personal capacity, regardless of how you utilize it.


Zodiac sign and Planet

If the House changes Zodiac sign somewhere in its span, that means your personal resources change character and expression at some point in life. It may just be that you change how you use it, but it can also imply that your personal resources actually change from one ability to another.

       If you have no planets in the 2nd House, this field of life will be rather uneventful and there's not too much you can do about it. Planets within it add specific powers to your personal capacity. They also add events that change your resources, either by your doing or in some other way. These events will still have the characteristics of the planet in question - regarding how they affect your situation.

       Here are simple keywords to your personal resources and your economy, depending on what Zodiac sign you have in the 2nd House:

  • Aries challenging
  • Taurus secure
  • Gemini carefree
  • Cancer protective
  • Leo flamboyant
  • Virgo controlled
  • Libra balanced
  • Scorpio out of control
  • Sagittarius independent
  • Capricorn ambitious
  • Aquarius experimental
  • Pisces insecure

       Here are keywords for what heightened capacity you have if you have a planet in your 1st House:

  • Sun adaptive
  • Moon lucrative
  • Mercury inventive
  • Venus creative
  • Mars forceful
  • Jupiter lucky
  • Saturn dominant
  • Uranus insightful
  • Neptune imaginative
  • Pluto drastic

       The keywords are just simple clues to understand the 1st House. You need to consider the whole before deciding on the meaning of one single ingredient.


Aspects

The 2nd House has the following aspect relations to other Houses:

  • Opposition 180 8th House
  • Trine 120 6th House, 10th House
  • Square 90 5th House, 11th House
  • Sextile 604th House, 12th House

       These relations between the Houses are quite important when analyzing their influence. The opposition aspect to the 8th House, which shows what is beyond your control, is evident: your personal capacity is helpless against such things. The trine to the 6th House, that of work, and the 10th House, your career, shows obvious stimulation of one another. In the case of your economy, of course your work and your career are instrumental.

       The squares to the 5th House, leisure, and the 11th, the big social arena, indicate that they cause problems for one another. It's evident in your wallet: leisure can be costly, and the 11th House also shows your ideals, which rarely increase your income but often the opposite. Still, squares can be solved satisfactory for all involved, so there are ways of gaining from these conflicts of interests.

       The sextile with the 4th House, home and family, says that well treated, your home is your castle and your family your allies. The sextile to the 12th House, sacrifices you have to make, is less obvious. But it's by willingly making some sacrifices you can succeed in other areas.
