Planets in The Second House
The 2nd house is naturally associated with the sign of Taurus and its ruling planet Venus. After establishing our self-identity in the 1st house, we turn, in the 2nd, to our possessions and what we own. This house represents the area of life concerned with the accumulation of wealth and resources as a secure basis from which to act in the world. This can mean the accumulation of money and material possessions, but on a higher level, it represents innate or acquired skills and gifts which give us a sense of value, worth and personal security. The 2nd house stabilises the self-identity acquired in the 1st. Extracts of text taken from Soul Scope Report written by Lyn Birkbeck
Sun in the 2nd House
All of this is most likely to focus upon what you regard as being of true worth. So anything that you put your vital energies into has to have a very real and material value. You could simply translate this into accumulating plenty of money and property, and for as long as you truly regard this as important, then that is what you are able to do.
But at some point it is no longer as simple as that, for the issue becomes one of establishing what YOU are worth, and what it is that you have, know or believe in that you must prove to be of worth in the material world. How much money you have or don't have is really only an indicator of what you believe it, and therefore yourself, to be worth. Get my Soul Scope Report
Moon in the 2nd House
Many of these needs and feelings apply especially to how you estimate your own worth, or earn an income, and to finances generally. Income and self-esteem are also subject to fluctuations, as are your moods and the market itself. By the same token, you may have an instinct for money and property. For better or worse you have inherited the same attitudes to money and self-worth as your family and especially your mother. Money can be earned catering to the public's needs.

Mercury in the 2nd House
These mental qualities of yours are a major material asset, or a major liability so it's important to get the best out of them and eliminate their weaknesses. The soundness of your mind greatly determines your income and the nature of your mind has much to do with what you do to earn that income. You may even work at something to do with finances. You prefer to concern yourself with practical issues - or you are forced to by circumstances. You are often fascinated by the small details of the physical world. It's as if by making such a contact you feel in touch with everything. Get my Soul Scope Report
Venus in the 2nd House
You like this sense of love and beauty to take physical shape - which means to say that they probably have a lot to do with how you earn your living. It also means that you are likely to attract and keep things of beauty and worth. And you enjoy this - which is the secret behind keeping this flow going.
Your talents and abilities are most likely to involve art, fashion, social skills, etc. You certainly do have money making potential - you are like a magnet to it. However, the value that you place upon it is crucial because it can make the difference between being loved for what you are and loved for what you have. Get my Soul Scope Report
Mars in the 2nd House
This way of asserting yourself has to, or likes to, express itself most of all in the pursuit of your self-worth and a financial income that matches that self-worth. Looked at in another way, your financial state reflects not so much the value you place upon yourself, but upon the energy that you are prepared to put into improving it.
If you simply desire to have plenty of money and are not too fussed about how you go about it, then money is what you'll get. If on the other hand, it is an increased and truer sense of self-worth that you are after, then how much money you have should not be regarded as a measure of this. But whether it's money or self-worth that you are in pursuit of, your Mars Profile as a whole reveals the pros and the cons of gaining them. It also indicates something of the nature of your worth and how your income is best earned. Get my Soul Scope Report
Jupiter in the 2nd House
You like to have something physical to show for your beliefs, so in proportion to the strength of your faith, you will accumulate money and possessions. The danger here is that this can become a substitute for faith itself. For example, you could amass lots of things around you but feel hollow inside. The wisdom that you are after, or already possess, is that of using your flair for attracting wealth to guide and assist projects and people that are in need of it. Get my Soul Scope Report
Saturn in the 2nd House
These lessons and tasks focus particularly upon the issues of self-worth and income or finances. Consequently, it is very likely that you either have trouble as a result of having too little money, or too much of it. In the first case, you are striving to improve your self-worth and thereby attract a better income. In the second case, you find it hard to know what you yourself are actually worth because others seem to judge you by what you own rather than what you are.
Tightfistedness with yourself could arise from the first case - tightfistedness with others from the second. In either case you are learning what is of real value in life. You could become an authority on quality. Get my Soul Scope Report
Uranus in the 2nd House
Your urge for change and awakening reveals itself in those areas of life that are concerned with material substance and self-worth. If you yourself lean to a material view of life, then you probably regard change as something to resist or have well under control. If you can lend stability where there is change or disruption, then this is a good expression of this, but if you are materially entrenching yourself against any kind of change, at some stage you could encounter something irresistible that forces a change.
With regard to your sense of self-worth and the income that reflects it, these are possibly prone to erratic changes. On the other hand, self-worth and income would be made more secure in your having a talent for science, engineering, psychology or something unusual. Get my Soul Scope Report
Neptune in the 2nd House
You are sensitive about your self-worth and earning ability. On the other hand, you could be sensitive to money matters by having a sixth sense about them but it's more likely that you find it hard to grasp or hold on to what you actually own. This can mean that you are open-handed and don't care too much about money, or that you're forever depending on handouts and maybe have a 'something will turn up' attitude, or else when you have money it just slips through your fingers; you are also open to financial deception.
What is going on here is that you are having to settle for the fact that such matters are in the 'lap of the Gods' and you should accordingly accept what Providence delivers or takes away. The more you can tune into the mystery of where it all comes from and goes to (which has something to do with believing that you will be provided for in proportion to your spiritual worth) then the fewer financial problems there will be.
Personal capabilities which are products of your sensitivity or imagination would fall into line with this - such as the arts, photography, dance, healing, psychism, or anything spiritual. Get my Soul Scope Report
Pluto in the 2nd House
Any call to transformation is aimed at your attitude towards money and possessions and at material values in general. If your attitude is negative in some way - like desiring wealth to avoid closeness with others - then this can lead to financial upheaval, thereby forcing a change in values.
You either find it easy to attract wealth in some material form, or very difficult. In both cases, the issue is the same: sooner or later you have to learn what the actual value of material things is. In other words, what is done with wealth is the significant point. If you're out to use material might to bolster a flagging ego, then you either crash or never take off.
When, on the other hand, your material assets are used generously and wisely, a never-ending supply line of material wherewithal is conferred upon you. This can reach a point where your material influence is used to substantially alter the status quo in any given area - like the regeneration of a company, building, or some stricken section of the community.
