The Second House in Astrology: The House of Money!

What Is The Second House?

The second house in astrology is a succedent house, planets placed here are neither strengthened nor weakened, as they are when placed in the angular or cadent houses. The second house in astrology is concerned with the individual’s approach to money, their possessions, wealth, their body and their personal values they hold as a person. This house is all about ‘values’ tangible and intangible. It is concerned with ‘ what’s mine’.

This is a house that is often focused on a lot during astrology interpretation, and for a very good reason! Understanding your second house, and the meaning of the second house in astrology could really empower a person, change their life, and help them to make good financial decisions.

This is a house that can show a lot especially when planets transit here on a day to day basis, not just in a birth chart reading. If we have planets retrograde in this house also for example Saturn, it can indicate a slow down, or some challenges of struggles with money. ( Saturn’s energy), this will depend on what aspects a planet like Saturn is making with other planets.

Keywords: wealth, values, money, possessions, building, stability, the body, personal values you hold as a person.

Tips On How to Interpret the Second House in a Horoscope or Birth Chart?

In a horoscope the second house is all about your personal finance what’s going on for you, or could be going on for you, or even the recent past and you. The key angles for interpretation are finance, stability, values that’s the focus, or the other person if you are completing their horoscope. Then, I also look to the planets what are they doing? Which way are they heading? How are they interacting with other planets? To give an idea of what could be going on for that person. The planets’ energies in the second house, again will be focused the overall stability, and values of the person.

Personal Planets in The Second House in a Birth Chart

Sun- blessings with money, good relationships with money, growth, health vitality in this area of life. Read the rest of the chart for a good indication of this, for example where is Jupiter, and how does he interact with the Sun in the second house? What other planets are in the second house, and what are they doing? Jupiter is the planet of luck, fortune, and expands the energies of the other planets he interacts with. Therefore, if he has good aspects with the Sun’s energy of growth and health in the second house this could be a good sign. The same can be said for his interactions with the planet Venus, the ruler of the second house in astrology which connects us to what we desire, love, money and beauty.

Moon- money could be something that causes emotional feelings, what kind of feelings these are the rest of the chart should be looked at. Money may also be up and down in a person’s life.

Mercury- your thoughts or ability to be creative could serve you well to help materialise money, in this life incarnation. Ideas, thoughts, creations, communication, contracts or even travel could be linked to money for the person. This is the planet that is linked to our communication, how we communicate, thinking, learning and creativity.

Venus- lots of love for money! Read the rest of the chart for an indication. Money could be something that comes to you with ease, read the rest of the chart. Don’t forget that Venus is the ruler of the second house also, to have her placed here and if she makes good aspects with other planets could be really positive for a person.

Mars– a money motivated person, keen to make money, keen to have money, self-employment could also be a good option for this person. Mars is the planet of drive and how we move forward in life.

Other planets such as Pluto ( transformation and change), Saturn ( learning, challenges or even areas to master to evolve spiritually), and Uranus ( erratic behaviour, sudden changes, rebel like) I also pay close attention to if stationed in the second house. Naturally due to the energies of the planets. The signs they are under the influence of also should be noted, as the signs can give an indication as to how the planet’s energy could be expressed in relation to the overall meaning of the second house of finance and value.
