Moving into your second house
Astrology is a complex and fascinating subject, with each astrological house representing a different area of our lives. The second house is associated with the sign of Taurus and is known as the house of finances and material possessions. It represents our values, the things that we hold dear, and our ability to accumulate wealth and material possessions. The second house also relates to our sense of self-worth and how we value ourselves.
In order to interpret the second house, one should look at the position of the planet in the second house and the aspects it makes with other planets in the chart. The ruler of the second house, Venus, can give us insight into how we value ourselves, our possessions and our money. If it well aspected in the chart, it can indicate that the person is good with money and able to accumulate wealth easily. On the other hand, if it is poorly aspected, it may indicate financial struggles or difficulty in valuing oneself.
The second house is also associated with our ability to earn money and our career choices. It can indicate what type of work we are drawn to and whether or not we are financially successful in our chosen field. It also reveals how we handle money and whether we are spenders or savers.
Another important aspect of the second house is our relationship with our possessions. It can reveal whether we are attached to our things or whether we are able to let go easily. It also indicates our relationship with our body and our physical well-being.
Some example interpretations include:
A person with a well-aspected Venus in the second house and a well-aspected Jupiter in the ninth house might be someone who is able to accumulate wealth and possessions easily. They may be drawn to careers in finance or business, and they have a strong sense of self-worth and value. They might also have a tendency to be generous with their wealth and might be known for supporting charities or other causes they believe in.
A person with a poorly-aspected Venus in the second house and a poorly-aspected Saturn in the tenth house might be someone who struggles with money and has a hard time valuing themselves. They might feel as if they are always fighting for financial stability, and may have a hard time climbing the career ladder. They might also have a tendency to be overly attached to their possessions and struggle with letting go of things. They may be overly critical of themselves, and might find it hard to be successful.
A person with a well-aspected Mercury in the second house and a well-aspected Uranus in the eleventh house might be someone who is able to think on their feet and come up with unique and innovative ways to make money. They may be drawn to careers in technology, innovation or entrepreneurship. They might have a strong sense of independence and might not be afraid of taking risks. They might also have a tendency to be eccentric when it comes to their possessions and might have an eclectic or unique taste.
As an aside, when a planet is "well aspected" in a chart, it means that it makes favorable angles to other planets. This can indicate that the planet's energies are likely to express themselves in a positive or beneficial way. For example, a well-aspected Venus in the second house may indicate that the person has a natural ability to attract wealth and material possessions and has a positive attitude towards money, self-worth and values.
On the other hand, when a planet is "poorly aspected" in a chart, it means that it makes challenging or difficult angles to other planets. This can indicate that the planet's energies are likely to express themselves in a negative or difficult way. For example, a poorly-aspected Venus in the second house can indicate that the person may struggle to attract wealth and material possessions, may have a negative attitude towards money, and may have a hard time valuing themselves.
The concepts of "well aspected" and "poorly aspected" in astrology, and "upright" and "reverse" in tarot card meanings are similar in some ways. Both are used to describe the relationship between different elements in a system and the way they may interact or express themselves.
In tarot, an upright card is one that is in the standard position in a reading, facing the reader. Upright cards are often thought to represent positive or affirmative meanings, depending on the card and the context of the reading. On the other hand, a reversed card is one that is upside down, with the other meaning. Reversed cards are often thought to have a more negative or challenging meaning, or a different interpretation of the upright card.
In astrology, well-aspected planets make favorable angles with other planets, and indicate that the planet's energies are likely to express themselves in a positive or beneficial way, similar to upright tarot cards. On the other hand, poorly-aspected planets make challenging or difficult angles with other planets, and indicate that the planet's energies are likely to express themselves in a negative or difficult way, similar to reversed tarot cards.
In conclusion, the second house in astrology is a complex and multi-faceted area of our lives. It relates to our finances, material possessions, self-worth, and values. By understanding the position of the planets in the second house, we can gain insight into our relationship with money, our career choices, and how we value ourselves. Whether you're a business person looking to make smart financial decisions, or just curious about your own spending and saving habits, the second house can offer valuable insights into our relationship with material possessions.
