The 2nd House in Astrology is your $$$ sector. It reveals your natural wealth quotient. Are you a resourceful enterpriser or mindfully frugal?
(If you don’t know what sign or planets are in your 2nd House, consider getting one of my Astral DNA birth chart reports.)
The 2nd House of your chart is known as the House of Earned Income – as opposed to the 8th house, which can be money that you attract via less official channels. The 2nd House is what you work for. Compared to the 8th House, which signifies lucre conjured up via strong financial Qi or acquired via other people. E.g., an advantageous marriage or inheritance.
The 2nd House shows off your attitude toward money and material possessions and your sense of self-assurance.
Some examples: Someone may be a super-cautious & canny Capricorn, but if they’ve got Leo lurking in the 2nd House, they like things to be done ‘right.’ And ‘right’ naturally means costly. Or, as they would say, ‘artisan’. Or ‘timeless quality.’ Their Capricorn ‘on sale or no sale’ mentality clashes with Leo’s respect for ‘design values.’
Pisces in the 2nd House can be an extreme minimalist. Things come in, and things go out, like the tide. Their financial strategy? Osmosis. Money is metaphysics, and they’re quantum physicists with it. It works when it works but is a poor blend with any form of gambling tendencies.
The 2nd House In Astrology Reveals Your Money Consciousness.
But it is not just the sign in the 2nd House that matters. It’s also the inhabitants. Saturn here is the classic challenged-by-money placement. Yet remember that your Saturn area gets buffed and buffed via loads of work and angsting until it becomes your shiniest area.
Saturn in the 2nd House can clobber people in early youth, endless money problems, and weird experiences around finances that most people don’t seem to have. But they eventually alchemize it into a particularly wise form of wealth, winning in the long run.
Venus & Jupiter in the 2nd House blesses people with the ability to apparently invent money. They’re not counterfeiters but it’s like they walk out the door and bam: a prosperous idea, encounter, or offer. Venus/Jupiter in the 2nd trots into garage sales & comes out clutching the actual valuable antique. Or gets a massive crush on some artist at uni who gives them their etchings/early compositions & voila, they’re worth heaps at a later date.
People can make money by following the attributes of their 2nd House sign or planet. Don’t worry if there is no planet there – it just means money is not that important to you.

Mercury In The 2nd House
Mercury rules Wednesdays, currency, the media, and merchants – the word “mercantile” comes from Mercury. When you’re born with this planet in your $$ sector, you can be cash-canny beyond belief. Separating subjectivity and sentiment from your financial plays, you’re automatically current. You successfully play markets and score epic deals without — it seems — even trying. Your consciousness around money is light-speed. Apart from leveraging your trend awareness to make fast money via the markets, you can generate rad revenue via your wit, wordcraft, or tech acumen.
