In the second house we find money, possessions, and personal beliefs. This includes income, banks, savings, a strong identification with being vegetarian, a family-taught value that all people should be treated with respect, or even a developed value that going to a 9-5 job is not one’s path. These are all expressions of second house ideas.
Planets that are located within the second house show an intensity placed on values and possessions. For example, a person with the Sun in the second house may always seek financial and material security, wanting to put their worth on display. However, a native with Uranus in the second house may experience constant surprises or changes in their wealth, and they may often seek to express their values independent of the values of society.
The sign that is located on the second house cusp will describe how the native treats his own belongings, values, and money. With Virgo on the second house cusp, the native is likely to be constantly vigilant of how much he has and how much he spends, although that does not necessarily mean he will be frugal or a spendthrift. Someone with Pisces on the second house might be easily swayed into various beliefs and not think twice about expenditures at all.
