The Second House: The House of Possessions & Feelings

The twelve houses represent twelve experiential realms, through which the energy of the zodiac sign is expressed. Each house represents a certain area of life experience. 

The Second House is the first Succedent House and is ruled by Taurus and the planet Venus

The Second House is the house of substance and our attitude to the things we value such as security, possessions and partners. This is where we explore, develop and enjoy our material world. This house governs our finances, earnings and any gains that are a result of our own endeavours. This house governs not just material possessions but also more subtle elements. For instance the Second House rules our natural talents and resources, psychologically it is through these that our sense of self worth and personal values result. It indicates our concepts of value and substance, which is the key to the Second House. Our values, both tangible and intangible and the reasons we have those values is the main question dealt with by this house.

Material debt also falls within the second house because we have ‘ownership' of those liabilities. Our ability to deal with managing our resources, by paying our bills and by amassing reserves or savings are all ruled by this house. This house governs the idea that money can set us free and give us the independence to define ourselves. In this house we decide whether money can really buy us happiness.

In Karmic astrology the second house represents the resources you have brought back with you Planets in this house indicate the specific type of resources, Mars has learned assertion, mercury communication and so on.

The lesson of the Second House it to make our possessions work for us and for the greater good. In turn we must learn to work within the boundaries set by those possessions and to use them with wisdom.
