I've often wondered about the significance of my 2nd house stellium. Others on these boards have asked me how it affects me because they, too, have this and don't understand it.

Most people think the 2nd house mainly rules money, finances, and material possessions. I was told it also represents anything that makes you secure...

So today, while driving aimlessly out in the country as I often do to clear my mind, I started thinking about what I think about when I'm alone. I realized I think about myself.

I think about the traits I have, the talents, the flaws, everything about my personality and inner "self" and I realized that accepting and being OK with all of these aspects of myself is when I am the happiest and most SECURE. When I am down or feeling "off", those are the times when I am being negative about my own personal qualities..not my relationships, not my appearance, not my family or circumstances..I focus on those things that only I can have that aren't tangible but are very much a "thing" I possess.

I think for people who have a strong 2nd house and do NOT feel its material and financial effects, inner personality traits and personal values and qualities are what you must focus on to feel secure (2nd house/taurus issues).

Does this make sense?


For the record, I have Sun, Mercury, Neptune, Saturn, Uranus, and Moon all in the 2nd house.

i am with you.
i don't have a stelliun in the second house, but i do have my sun there.

i think its about valuing oneself and many situations and circumstances come to test that. also, depending on other placements, it may have to do with oneself being the means by which money is made.

oprah has sun, venus and mercury in the the second house. i don't know anything personal about her but i do know that she makes money off of her name. her name in and of itself is powerful (just wikipedia the oprah effect)

Yeah, these are very much of the 2nd house too. Actually, 2nd house is in the first quadrant of the chart, which is about self. While the 1st house is about one's own identity, the 2nd is about one's self value (aside of the rest of what they usually say).

To go along with what you are saying--In Synastry he puts HIS Stellium--Sun, Merc and Venus in MY second house.
He helps my self esteem very much. It is a deep type of help not a superficial "Hey baby ,you look good" lol
It is a sense that I am OK way down deep.
This embodies what the second house is saying in self esteem terms.
I hope you guys understand what I mean

"oprah has sun, venus and mercury in the the second house. i don't know anything personal about her but i do know that she makes money off of her name. her name in and of itself is powerful (just wikipedia the oprah effect)"


which chart are you looking at?

according to the one in Solar Fire,

Jan 29, 1954
Kosciusco, Mississippi
7:51 pm


She has her 1 minute of arc Sun-Venus conjunction in the 5th trine Midheaven,square Saturn in 3rd.

She also has Chiron-North Lunar Node conjunction in 5th.


On January 29, 1954 Oprah Gail Winfrey was born to unwed, teenage parents in Kosciusko, Mississippi. Oprah had a mountain of obstacles already in front of her as a newborn baby... she was born to unwed teenage parents, she was female, she was black, and she was poor. Oprah's mother was an eighteen-year-old housemaid named Vernita Lee. Her father was a twenty-year-old doing duty in the armed forces: his name was Vernon Winfrey.

For the first six years of her life, the young Winfrey was raised on a Mississippi farm by her grandmother. That being perhaps the first stroke of good luck for the young child. Oprah has stated that living with her grandmother probably saved her life. While in her grandmother's care, she was taught to read at a very early age, instilling a love of reading in her that she retains today. She began her public speaking career at the tender age of three when she began reading aloud and reciting sermons to the congregation of her church.

Oprah has said that she heard her grandmother state on several occasions that Oprah was "gifted." While the young child didn't know exactly what being "gifted" meant, she thought that it meant that she was special. And that was enough to keep her going. That bit of praise, the thought that she was "gifted" and "special" may have been what got her through the hard years that she was to spend with her mother.

At the age of six, her mother, Vernita Lee, decided that she could care for her young daughter and Oprah was sent to live with her mother in Milwaukee. From ages six to thirteen, Oprah stayed with her mother. She was raped by a cousin when she was nine years old and later molested by a male friend of her mother's and by an uncle. The young girl never told anyone about the abuse that she was suffering. Instead, she held her anger and pain inside and she rebelled. She repeatedly ran away and got into trouble.

Her mother decided to put her into a detention home. Fortunately for Oprah, she was denied admission to the home because there were no openings. So, in what may have been her second major stroke of good luck, she was sent to live with her father Vernon Winfrey in Nashville. Before she ceased her promiscuous and wild behavior, she became pregnant and gave birth to a stillborn baby boy when she was fourteen. The death of her baby devastated her and she vowed to turn her life around.

Her father helped her with her mission by strapping her with his strict rules and discipline. Vernon made sure that his daughter stuck to her curfew, maintained high grades in school and encouraged Oprah to be her best. Oprah's father helped her turn her life around. Oprah has spoke of his requirement that she read a book each week and complete a book report on the book.

At the age of nineteen, Oprah landed her first job as a reporter for a radio station in Nashville. Shortly afterwards, she entered Tennessee State University to pursue a career in radio and television broadcasting. During her freshman year at TSU, Oprah won several pageants, including "Miss Black Nashville" and "Miss Tennessee."

In 1976, Oprah Winfrey moved to Baltimore, where she hosted a TV show called People Are Talking. The show was a hit and Winfrey stayed for eight years. She was then recruited by a TV station in Chicago to host her own morning show, A.M. Chicago. The show was competing against the immensely popular Phil Donahue Show. After several months, Oprah's warm-hearted style had taken her to first place in the ratings. Her success led to a role in Steven Spielberg's film, The Color Purple in 1985, for which she was nominated for an Academy Award.

In 1986, Oprah started the Oprah Winfrey Show. The rest is, as they say, history. Oprah has come from being a poor, black, farm girl from Mississippi to a national celebrity. To her resume she can add reporter, actress, writer, producer, activist and TV talk show host... but it doesn't stop there. Oprah, it seems, is unstoppable. http://www.essortment.com/all/oprahwinfrey_rkcr.htm
