2nd House in Vedic Astrology
2nd Lord in Different Houses indicates accumulated wealth. Ketu represents a flag and therefore height. If a beneficial planet for the chart together with Ketu is located in its own sign in this house it shows that the native will have immense wealth. On the other hand, the owner of the sixth, eighth or the twelfth house in the second house can lead to dissipation of accumulated wealth.
- Powerful owners of the second and the fifth houses connected with a powerful Venus indicate musical ability.
- The owner of this house invests any matter that it influences with worth. If such an owner happens to be Jupiter which is a karaka for worth, then it becomes doubly effective to do so.
- The native is a drunkard if this house and the Moon are connected with Saturn and Rahu which are adverse for the chart.
- The native becomes wealthy if this house or its owner is connected with the owner of the eleventh house or Jupiter.
- The native suffers from a dog bite if:
(i) an afflicted Saturn is in the second house, or,
(ii) the owner of the second house is associated with or aspected by an adverse Saturn for the chart, or,
(iii) a malefic planet is located at or near 80 degrees 13 minutes 6 seconds (this is not related to the second house. It can be anywhere in the chart.).
- The affliction of this house by separative planets (The Sun, Rahu Saturn, owner of the twelfth house, and the dispositors of these planets) leads to separation of the native from his parents in childhood.
- As recorded earlier, this house refers to the nature of education a native will receive. Saturn and Rahu are significators of disease. The Sun is the karaka for health and represents doctors and physicians. Therefore if at least two of these three planets influence this house, the native is likely to study the subject of disease and health.
- When the owner of the second house is placed in a good house or the second house has a relationship with a good house, and the significators of education namely Jupiter and Mercury have at least average strength, the native will do well at school and will excel himself at all examinations and tests in his early classes.
