The Second House
House of Taurus Element: Earth
Ruling Planet: Venus
Area of Consciousness Personal
Awareness through consolidation & material responsibility
Sun in House 2
The Sun in House 2 indicates that the soul is learning the lesson of material responsibility.
A person with this placement of the Sun has a developmental need to establish and live by his own value system. Every major choice he makes will have implications for his financial situation.
A person with the Sun in House 2 can never ignore the imperatives of survival at the material level nor abdicate to another the responsibility of meeting them. House 2 is one of the houses of Personal consciousness and anyone with this placement needs to make his own response.
A profound interest in money is usually present when the Sun is in House 2. The sign on the cusp of this house offers insights into the way a person is likely to approach the matter of making money and how he will spend it once he has it. For example, a person with Leo on the cusp of H2 is likely to be interested in money as the means of making possible a glamorous lifestyle and is prone to spend freely. A person with Cancer on the cusp of H2, however, tends to view money as a source of security and is more likely to save. The Earth signs when on the cusp of H2 give an outlook on life, which is almost, exclusively materialistic, unless Jupiter should be retrograde. Sagittarius, Aquarius and Pisces, however, are likely to involve a person in making a conscious sacrifice of material security for some other, more spiritual ideal. He then has to cope the best he can with the mundane responsibilities he will never lose.
These tendencies are strengthened if the Sun occupies the same sign as that on the cusp of House 2.
For people with the Sun in House 2, money and acquisitions tend to be the benchmark against which they assess their own worth and successfulness, and the means of expressing their appreciation of others. Second House people can be extraordinarily generous givers of presents to those they respect.
This placement of the Sun is commonly found with the Moon in one of the houses of Universal consciousness, indicating that the past life experience involved living according to standards, which were set and imposed by some external authority. With the Sun in H2 a person has the opportunity to live according to his desires and to the dictates of his own conscience as he has the potential to be self-supporting no matter what his choice of life style.
People with this placement of the Sun make entrepreneurs, investors and speculators. The need to do things in their own way, based upon their own assessment of a situation does not always make it easy for them to be employees, unless they have identified security as being the prime consideration in which case they are more likely to be accepting of the restraints. A pragmatic outlook usually goes with a House 2 Sun. As employees they are likely to be found in the financial services sector or in the accounts departments of businesses in other industry sectors.
