The Second House In Astrology
2nd house is a house of possessions, and it reflects all things that we own, ranging from material goods to relations. It represents the things that we already own and what we value in this life. The values are not just limited to anything material. It can be your interest, your opinion, your thoughts, etc. Obviously, values are mainly material, so it also represents your values towards golds, silver, jewelry, gemstones, etc.
Other than that, the second house in astrology also represents family, speech, the continuance of married life, wealth, fame, earning potential, banking, savings, etc. The 2nd house also decides your feelings towards all things that involve the financial standings of your life. How much you will earn and how much you will save & borrow is also seen through the 2nd house in a chart.
Lots of people believe that the 2nd house also rules the career or profession because it rules over the Money. However, it’s not true; the 2nd house mostly reflects one’s ability to earn or acquire Money. Money here doesn’t need to be a result of one’s own effort or earning. It could be in the form of funds, stocks, property, cash, jewelry, inheritance, etc.
As far as the body parts are concerned, it shows the eyes, face, neck, throat, mouth, cheeks, chin, nose, teeth, tongue, etc. It also represents our speech, intake of food, drinking habits, clothing, and anything that we put on our face like cosmetics.
