The 2nd House in Astrology

Next in the series of Significance of Each House in Astrology, today we gonna talk about Second House in astrology.

This house primarily called as DHANA BHAVA i.e. House of Wealth. From this house, one can greatly judge about the possessions one is going to hold in his lifetime. 
Since this house is next to the 1st house, it denotes the people surrounding the self which particularly refer to the domestic life and immediate family members and the environment one is in during the growing years. For this very reason, it is also known as KUTUMB BHAVA i.e. House of Family and the surrounding environment. It also signifies how well your childhood has been spent and how smoothly your growing-up years went. Was it in just a hand to mouth condition, moderate or luxurious? This can also be seen by the condition of the 2nd house.
Since it shows our possessions, hence our family, wealth and virtues are nothing but the extension of our belongings, so these all come under the domain of the 2nd house. 

All the money matters, fortune, profits and gains, power and revenues, security, material achievements, jewellery, shares, stocks and bonds, ability to earn, work ethics, inheritance (cash), debts, savings and budgeting, etc. everything related to financial aspect is what 2nd house governs.

The second house also rules right eye, tongue i.e. speech, the lower part of the face, chin, neck, nose, throat and teeth.
A benefic planet in 2nd house gives fluency and great command over speech. Good orators and speakers who have the ability to charm people by their speech, do have good 2nd house generally.

And hence 2nd house is also referred to as House of Speech as well. A good 2nd house also renders great command over languages. Also, such a person is attracted to different kinds of cuisines and always willing to experiment with their food choices.

For example, Rahu placed in this house gives a strong affinity towards non-vegetarian food. However, it also signifies that a person is more prone to lying for petty issues.

Since it is the second house, it belongs to Taurus sign and its natural ruler is Venus. Along with Venus, Jupiter is also the natural significator of this house.

Many astrological texts, refer this house as the MARAKA STHANA i.e. DEATH-INFLICTING HOUSE (along with 7th house).  This is because the lords of 2nd and 7th houses and the planets occupying these houses or any relationship of these planets with the lords of the 2nd and 7th houses are considered as PRIMARY DETERMINANTS of one's death.

So, this is the general outlook of what 2nd house has in stores for you.
