House period, and there may need to be some revision of the plans
conceived during this earlier time.
interceptions move the progressed Sun into the 2nd House H1, then a person
is likely to become increasingly concerned with building and projecting an
identity, which reflects the value system he has come to live by. Whether
his values are orientated towards the material or spiritual will depend
largely upon the sign on the cusp of H 2 and that occupied by the Sun. If
the movement is from H 3 into H 2, then a person will begin to express his
reality through the order he gives to his values and priorities. This
movement may also indicate that a person has begun to earn his living
after a long period of study or training and is anxious to see a return on
the investment he has made in his intellectual development.
time of a Mercury transit to the 2nd House usually requires a person to
give thought to his financial situation and to take steps to improve it in
some way. It may also be a time in which a person seeks to give practical
expres≠sion to the perspective conferred by the radical placement of
Mercury. This time of the year is usually
by a need to focus upon material concerns.
into the 2nd House, a person has to keep one foot at least, firmly on the
ground. Regardless of the natal or progressed placement of the Sun, this
position of Mercury will ensure that a person has to make material
concerns a priority and there may be some financial worries and
difficulties during the time that Mercury is in the 2nd House.
Venus transits the 2nd House, the house of which it is the natural ruler,
financial pressures may be lifted or lessened, albeit temporarily.
Frequently this is the result of a positive way of looking at things and a
greater receptivity to new ideas. The improvements in his financial
position tend to reinforce a persons confidence in his own capabilities
and it is in general a time of optimism.
Venus progresses into the 2nd House a person tends to become increasingly
concerned with the material, although the sign occupied by Venus, will
deter≠mine the degree. . As Venus progresses through H 2, it is rarely
survival issues which are at stake; it is rather the ways in which the
resources are used and whether consumption is to be immediate or deferred.
Venus occupies Sagittarius, Aquarius or Pisces, the decisions are likely
to be designed to improve the quality of the life by giving greater
period during which Mars transits the 2nd House is commonly a time when
there are heavy demands upon a persons resources: so much of what he
perceives he needs to do at this time involves the expenditure, if not of
money, then of time and energy.
this time a person tends to assess his effectiveness and competence
against his ability to meet these demands.
movement of Mars through the 2nd House tends to mark a period in a
personís life during which he seeks to assert and to express himself in
ways, which have direct impact upon his financial situation. Depending
upon the signs involved he will express himself either through his money
and resources or by adopting a lifestyle, which threatens, to some degree,
his financial security. Either way, during this phase of his life there
will be a heavy drain on his resources and it will prove very difficult
for him to consolidate either the assets or the energies.
period of a Jupiter transit to the 2nd House tends to mark a time when a
person's attitude to material security becomes more relaxed. He is
usually more trusting and more optimistic about life. His is more prepared
opportunities and this positive approach usually means that the financial
situation shows either a material improvement or ceases to be perceived as
a source of anxiety. Thus new interests are often developed at this time.
Jupiter progresses through H 2 a person tends to become more profi≠cient
in the matter of making the material plane serve his interests. During
this time of his life he usually becomes more skilful, both, in the use of
his resources and in
opportunities available to him. The sign and condition (i.e. whether
retrograde or direct) of Jupiter will determine whether a person will put
his enhanced competence in the service of further acquisition or in the
pursuit of other interests.
Saturn transit to the 2nd House
usually marks a time when a person is required to review the way in which
he uses his resources. Money is frequently scarce during this period,
especially as Saturn makes its entry into H 2, and priorities have to be
re-assessed and re-ordered.
natal placement of Saturn will indicate the basic reason for the financial
difficulties. By the time Saturn leaves the 2nd House, a more disciplined
approach to the use of money and other personal resources, including the
energies, make an improvement in the financial position a distinct
Saturn moves through H 2 by progression, the mentality indicated by the
natal placement of Saturn, will begin to have a marked effect on the way a
person handles his material concerns. At this time of his life it will be
the material level, which provides him with the mirror by which he can
arrive at a better understanding of himself. If the period during which
Saturn transits H 2 is a time when each decision a person is required to
make seems to bear a price tag, discipline and awareness need to be
brought to bear on the process of selection.
Uranus transits the 2nd House, a person's attitude to material security
tends to undergo change as a result of disruption, which is brought by
this transit. As a result of seeing his careful plans trashed by Uranus,
and equally important, having the experience of surviving the upheaval, a
person tends to become more relaxed about material concerns and more
accepting that what will be will be.
it transits H 2, Uranus brings sudden and sporadic disruption, especially
if H 2 is tenanted. The natal placement of Uranus indicates the attitude,
activities and situations through which the planet works as it transits.
Uranus progresses through the 2nd House a person tends to assess, in terms
of individuality and freedom, the price he is paying for material
security. In consequence he is likely to make changes which

and authenticity of his life. A proven willingness to co-operates with
these necessary changes in attitude will lessen the severity of Uranusís
Uranus commences his journey through the 2nd House a personís finances
may become chaotic. Frequently this is the result of impulsive measures
taken in order to gain more freedom. By the time Uranus reaches the end of
H 2 a person is likely to be working more adeptly with Uranian energy.

money and material concerns tends to undergo change.
of a transit of Neptune are more subtle, however it triggers a similar
desire to be freer from the daily grind in order to pursue other interests
a transit of Neptune a person may be persuaded to consider all kinds of
financial schemes, arrangements and deals in order to acquire the desired
freedom. Thinking however, tends not to be particularly clear under this
transit, and if the 2nd House is tenanted either natally or by progres≠sion,
by any of the inner planets, then the judgment may become very distorted
Neptune progresses through the 2nd House a personís attitude towards
material security tends to become more flexible and his approach to
finance more imaginative.
such a time there tends to be an enhanced awareness of quality of life and
a correspondingly enhanced desire for greater freedom. As is frequently
the case under a transit of Neptune to H 2, schemes, usually those
involving the pooling of resources, tend to have appeal at this time as
they seem to be the key to a more fulfilling lifestyle.
the time Neptune leaves H 2 a personís material affairs have usually
undergone substantial re-arrangement and there is commonly a rejection of
the idea of personal wealth.
it transits the 2nd House, Pluto releases from the unconscious, the
desires and fears that a person may have in relation to money and
possessions and their relation≠ship to personal power. This is especially
evident and intense if H 2 is tenanted. As with all transits of Pluto, a
transit of Pluto to the 2nd House is cathartic and has the potential to
free a person from his complexes about material security and self-aggrandisement
through material means.
the 2nd House is tenanted then this transit can bring about some dramatic
and even traumatic financial situations.
the time Pluto leaves H 2 a person is likely to have a markedly different
awareness. Whether he is more or less materialistic will depend very much
upon the overall pattern of the chart.
Pluto progresses through the 2nd House the material plane becomes the
ground on which the issues indicated by the natal placement of Pluto are
realisations and conclusions that a person has arrived at, up to that
point, are put to a very practical test during the period that Pluto
occupies H 2. The
2nd House experience requires a person to
and act upon his understanding of his power and his desires; this
experience itself becomes the source of further awareness.
Moonís monthly passage through the 2nd House commonly marks a time of
concern and a
concentrated focus upon practical matters. A person is usually relati≠vely
grounded at this time and it is therefore a good opportunity to deal with
the Moon progresses through H 2 a person begins to assess the cost of new
ventures and new departures initiated when it moved through the 1st House.
Invariably some of those new departures or some aspect of the new
departures will no longer seem so attractive. This period of the 28 year
cycle is a time of consolidation and whilst certain decisions may have to
be eliminated, others will be developed further to make them a fully
functioning part of a person's livelihood. Priorities and values
frequently have to be re-ordered at this time in order to make room for
the expansion of the new, and the ebullience which tends to be present
when the Moon goes through H 1, gives way at this time to a more sober,
grounded approach to life.
the Moon reaches the final degrees of the 2nd House a person is likely to
make a decision designed to have a degree of permanence which will lay the
financial foundations of the future.
