Mercury and Venus in 2nd House

Mercury and Venus in 2nd house 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.

         With Mercury in your second house your mind is centered on finances and making money, and you have the ability to profit through sales, secretarial or personnel work, writing, speaking or communications. You tend to determine the real value of everything before you buy it. You're primarily interested in others with meaningful human values. Thinking along lines that are practical and conservative, you come up with sound and productive ideas. You may go into business with your relatives.

         Venus is the natural ruler of the second house, similar to its rulership of Taurus the second sign—so it is very well placed in the second house. With Venus in your second house you’re able to attract money and material resources, and your personal magnetism is very strong. Comfort, pleasure, things of the senses, art, and that which is fine and beautiful are important to you, and you usually have them. Physically sensuous, you love to luxuriate in material comfort and all that pleasures your senses. You have a discriminating palate, refined sensibilities, and are considered lucky.

         Astronomically, the second house is that one-twelfth sector of the local sky midway between the eastern horizon and the nadir (see the above second-house model) occupied by planets two to four hours before they rise.
