In this post, we will have a look at the effects caused by planets in the second house of a Vedic birth chart or a horoscope. As we always do, here is a note. The final predictions are given based on the total planetary configuration and not just the single planet in a house. The results will also vary depending on a planets exaltation, debilitation, the overall strength and conjunctions, and aspects.
The second house signifies financial status, property, family, and speech to a major extent. So it is needless to say here, that these are the things which will be affected by the placements, conjunctions, and aspects of the planets in relation to the second house. When giving predictions related to the 2nd house we need to consider the house, Karaka or the significator, the lord of the house and the planets present in the house. Below are the effects of planets in the second house which will be activated in the Dasha or the Antardasha period of that particular planet.
Planets in the Second House And Their Effects on an Individual’s Life
Sun in the 2nd house
This person might have to face a lot of problems with the government or the rulers and lose a lot of money. This is not a very good position for the Sun to be. This person may be stubborn and might have a ‘not so attractive’ face. He/she will have to put in a lot of hard work (physical) to earn money.
Moon in the second house
The native will generally be happy and may share an intimate bond with female members of his/her family. His/her earning may also involve females. Earning will be good and a lot of wealth may be accumulated in the lifetime of the native. Chances of this person being an introvert/reserved kind, can’t be ruled out. Some people with this planetary configuration might suffer from the squint eye problem. Generally, he/she will be admired.
Mars in the second house –
Not a friendly person. Maybe indulged in frequent quarrels. Has the capacity to earn a good living. Generally, people with such a horoscope will be miserly. The speech might be rude and hurt people at times. Gets attracted to evil people very fast.
Here are the effects of planets in the first house of your birth chart.
Mercury in the second house –
Knowledgeable, especially in religious scriptures. Will also be philosophical. Might make money with business and commercial indulgences. May also be interested in lecturing and teaching. The native will be clever and intelligent and will spend money on charity.

Venus in the second house
Will be good looking. Enjoys health and wealth. Will have a loving spouse/life partner. Enjoys many kinds of luxuries. May have an ancestral wealth and property. Generally leads a happy life. May also enjoy a big family and many children.
Saturn in the second house
Will cause hardship to the native and money will be hard to come by, except in the case where the 2nd house is a Libra, Aquarius or Capricorn. The person will have a harsh speech and might have a lot of enemies. Money can be made with business related to metals, garbage/waste management and manpower (human resource management).
Rahu in the second house
Might suffer from diseases related to eyes. May have an unpleasant face. Unhappy family situations may occur. The final outcome caused by this shadowy planet will depend on the aspects and conjunctions both good and bad.
Ketu in the second house –
May produce results similar to Rahu in finances. This person may be spiritually inclined. Some people may be interested in hospital/medical fields and occult sciences.
These are mainly the outlines of the effects that may be seen in the major population due to the presence of the above planets in second houses. Again, the entire picture can only be determined by the complete assessment of the horoscope as a whole and not from a single planet’s perspective.
