Mars and Jupiter in 2nd House

Mars and Jupiter in 2nd house 3D astrology model

         The second house describes both inner and outer resources. We draw on emotional and mental inner resources in dealing with the situations with which life presents us. These assets form our sense of self-worth and self-esteem. Our outer resources are our finances and physical possessions: movable property that we own (as opposed to real estate). These assets form our sense of security. Some of us identify with what we own; others with what we are. They both, however, are what we value, and we attract to us what we value. Thus the second house is where we build in true value and our power of attraction. Planets here show how and to what we are attached, and the degree of our possessiveness.

         Classically speaking, this house also symbolizes our strongest desires, and the manner in which we meet our obligations. Isabelle Hickey said that this house indicated "that which the life is dedicated to redeem," and is thus related to one’s peace of mind. Geometrically, the second house is that one-twelfth sector of the local sky midway between the eastern horizon and the nadir (see above picture) occupied by planets two to four hours before they rise.

         With Mars in your second house you're strongly motivated when it comes to making money and to increasing your resources, but if Mars is afflicted (in hard aspect to Saturn, Uranus, Neptune or Pluto; or, to a lesser extent, in Libra, Taurus or Cancer) or in fire or in air, you tend to scatter what you've brought in. If Mars is in hard aspect to Uranus (or when this occurs by transit), you will experience sudden and unexpected losses. You are being tested in the responsibilities of ownership and how you use your possessions with Mars in the second house. Sports, government, the military, law enforcement or engineering are often sources of income.

         Jupiter and Saturn are the first two planets beyond the personal planets: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars. They are less personal by sign position in that they stay 1 and 3 years respectively in a sign. They are equally personal by house position, however, since all 12 planets move into the next house every two hours due to the earth's rotation on its axis. In common they act somewhat as volume controls for the planets they contact and the houses they occupy: Jupiter expands and increases the energy of a planet it aspects, whereas Saturn contracts, limits or diminishes the energy of a planet it aspects.

         Jupiter in your second house indicates wealth, good fortune, and material prosperity (particularly if Jupiter is conjunct, trine or sextile the Moon or Venus; or trine or sextile Saturn). On the other hand, if Jupiter is afflicted here (in hard aspect to Saturn, Uranus, Neptune or Pluto; or, to a lesser extent, in Gemini, Virgo or Capricorn), you tend to be extravagant and may spend or gamble all that comes in. Banking, stocks, sales, or anything to do with travel are good sources of income.
