Planets in the Houses
Saturn, Rahu or Ketu in the 2nd House
Saturn in the 2nd House
Saturn in the 2nd house brings poverty to the person, who will need to work quite hard for their money.
There will be little education, and the person shall not have much imagination.
There may be difficulties with the right eye or diseases of the gums, teeth and mouth.
The face might be unattractive and appear aged even in youth.
Family life will not be happy, and this will be a cause of distress to the person.
However, the person may be long lived, as Saturn’s aspect shines on the 8th house, which is good for longevity.
The person could earn wealth from businesses that deal with construction, wood, metal, mining and or hard labor.
The ancient texts declare that the person will live far away from their birthplace in their later years.
Fortunately for people whose ascending house is Libra, Virgo, Taurus or Capricorn, the unpleasant effects described above will not occur. This is because Saturn becomes a functional beneficiary because it rules good houses or occupies signs where it can function well. For these ascendants Saturn will give much wealth which will accumulate slowly, overtime.
Other matters relating to the 2nd house may also flourish in Saturn’s unique way.
Exalted or Own House
When Saturn is in Libra, Capricorn or Aquarius in the 2nd house, wealth accumulates easily through the person’s efforts.
They will have much knowledge and be very learned.
They will be serious and devoted to their family.
Imagination will be fertile, they could be authoritative on certain subjects and may speak powerfully.
Debilitated, or Fallen
If Saturn is situated in Aries in the 2nd house, the person will suffer from poverty and may only be able to earn money from hard labour, unpleasant jobs or deceitful methods.
There will be a disturbed family life and on account of this the person will be miserable or depressed.
There will be limited education and the person will have not much knowledge or imagination.
There could be a defect in the right eye, also diseases of the gums, teeth, mouth or face.
The full effects of Saturn are felt in the 36th year.
At that time problems with finances, family life, education and other 2nd house matters could arise.
If Saturn has become a functional beneficiary because of house rulership or sign placement described above, the reverse will be the case.
Rahu in the 2nd House
The 2nd house is one of the worst positions for Rahu, because the person’s happiness is greatly upset.
A depressive nature is indicated.
The family life will be impacted and there is a high likelihood of quarreling or separation from the spouse.
The 2nd house rules the mouth and foods, so the person may consume too much junk food and imbibe excessively alcohol and other drugs.
They may also consume a large amount of meat.
Unless Rahu is positioned in the sign of a friend or otherwise well disposed, education and knowledge will not be blessed.
The person may tell lies and use a lot of coarse language.
However, the person will be fortunate enough to possess a fascinating and very unusual imagination.
There could be scars on the mouth face or problems in the right eye.
Because Rahu is a planet of insatiable desire there will be cravings for wealth, but attainment of it will bring only short-lived satisfaction.
The person will tend to go for get rich quick schemes including gambling, swindling and other crimes.
If Rahu is in a favorable sign, or well aspected, an enormous amount of wealth is possible.
The ancient texts predict that the person will have a dark complexion.
Exalted or Own House
Rahu in Virgo or Gemini in the 2nd house, or stationery, direct or moving forward, will provide the person with enormous wealth.
The person will become an expert in some field due to having received a fine education.
They could have a brilliant imagination and great talent in poetry or teaching.
Family life and happiness will still be unsatisfactory due to the selfish, greedy nature of the Rahu influence, but other 2nd house matters will still flourish.
Rahu is most prominent in the 42nd year.
In that year there could be general unhappiness, domestic strain, or financial strife.
Ketu in the 2nd House
The result of Ketu being placed in the 2nd house is that the person will be poor, generally unhappy and depressed.
They may enjoy speaking coarsely and telling lies.
There could be problems with speech.
The diet will not be healthy, and will contain an excessive amount of alcohol and other drugs.
Knowledge and education are very limited and family life is unsatisfactory.
Exalted or Own House
If Ketu is in Gemini or Virgo in the 2nd house, or stationery, direct or moving forward, the negative effects described above will be completely reversed.
The person will be extremely knowledgeable due to a fine education.
They could particularly be well acquainted with spiritual subjects.
Financial affairs will flourish.
The person will have a very healthy diet.
They will be very attractive with a good looking face, speak fluently and confidently, despite occasional lapses into coarse language.
Family life is not helped by this placement.
Ketu’s full effect is felt in the 48th year.
At that time there could be depression and unhappiness due to financial difficulties and domestic disharmony.
