The birth chart is a blueprint of the sky at the momentof yourbirth. Sounds extraordinary?
Well, it rather is!
Each of the nine planets in Vedic astrology exists within a House (Bhava) in your birth chart (Kundli). Apart from providing invaluable insights about your personality, the placement of the planets illustrates how you are connected and how you coexist with the world around
you. Moreover, the 12 Houses in your Kundli are a roadmap of your past, present and future. As the planets in the sky move across these houses, all sorts of events are triggered in your life — both tangible and emotional.
Every house in the horoscope carries a unique meaning and represents a specific area of life.Indeed, the twelve houses are truly what makes astrology so spectacular. How these houseswork is fairly complex, but we will make it easy for you to understand what the 2nd house in Kundli is all about.
The physical body (the 1st House) needs to be fed to feel good about itself. The actions of the physical body in the 1st house show results in the 2nd House, which is all about wealth and earthly possessions. The 2nd house is also about the immediate family and the native’s growing-up years.
The 2nd house of your birth chart is known as Dhana Bhava in Vedic astrology -- the House of Wealth.
Birth planets in the 2nd house tend to seek security through their material world. This house also has to do with the concept of value -- both how you value material possessions and how you value yourself.
In addition, the second house indicates issues of greed, financial hardship or low self-worth. The house of money reveals what you really value in life. Some people don’t value wealth as much as they do spirituality -- it’s the personal and psychological value you attach to something.
A detailed analysis of the 2nd house in the birth chart reveals much about the health-related issues the native could face in their lifetime. The problems are likely to be linked with the face, teeth, speech, tongue, oral cavity, nose or the right eye. The analysis will also indicate
which relatives of the native would be a source of support in the future.
Venus is the natural planet in the 2nd House that has considerable influence on the native.Venus also has to do with your sense, values, respect and how those things translate into wealth.

Sun in 2nd House: The presence of Sun in the second house in Kundli ties your identity to wealth, family, values and other stable structures of the world. A strong Sun proffers self-respect and independence. The native may even be greedy and clannish.
Moon in 2nd House: The presence of the Moon blesses the native with a pleasant and attractive look. Moon in the second house is a good yoga that makes the native smart,wealthy and famous. He or she enjoys happiness and family support. An afflicted Moon may influence you to become involved in unlawful activities to earn quick money. There may also be inconsistent habits and utterances, even food addictions or other problems. This is indicative of the native’s wavering value system.
Jupiter in 2nd House: The presence of this planet in the 2nd House is very propitious.Jupiter will help you be a good businessperson. Wealth, happiness and respect come easily to you because of the auspicious position or yoga of this planet. If Jupiter is afflicted in the second house, you may face financial problems or obstacles in the pursuit of education. You may become selfish and self-centred.
Venus in 2nd House: Venus in the second house easily indicates wealth, support and comfort for the native. You will be able to increase your wealth and prestige in society. You may profit through several businesses. When Venus is afflicted in this house you could become a spendthrift, landing yourself in considerable trouble. You may even compromise on your values to suit others.
Mars in 2nd House: The placement of Mars in the 2nd house will make the native confident,ambitious and independent. You will single-mindedly focus on earning money through hard work and fair means. Malefic placement of Mars in this house may be the cause of your
rude and aggressive attitude.
Mercury in 2nd House: The auspicious Mercury will make you a kind and gentle-natured person. Intelligent and efficient, you are good at organising events. You will use your intellect to earn well and succeed in life. If Mercury is affected by any malefic planets during this yoga, you may not take the right decisions.
Saturn in 2nd House: Saturn in 2nd house will help to increase your income over time with your hard work and determination. You will make wise decisions and prove good at money management through your savings. Yet your profession may not give you the satisfaction
you desire. The placement of Saturn in this house will make you a hard-working person but the results may not be entirely favourable. When Saturn is placed with malefic planets in the second house, you may turn lazy and as a result, leave your projects incomplete.
Rahu in 2nd House: Although a malefic planet, Rahu in the 2nd house is considered auspicious in money matters. This yoga may give you unexpected monetary benefits. You will also get the opportunity to fulfil your family responsibilities. However, you should control your expenses and work systematically because when Rahu is in a malefic position
with other planets in the house, the results will be adverse.
Ketu in 2nd House: Ketu placed in the second house in Kundli may lead to financial problems, causing you to spend unnecessarily. This placement also indicates your dissatisfaction with the values you were raised with. You will also doubt your self-worth and become overly critical of yourself and others.
