2nd House Lord in 1st House


Last updated on October 15th, 2022 at 11:17 pm

What does 2nd house lord in 1st house mean?

When the planet which governs the second natal zodiac sign in the birth chart sits in the ascendant sign, it means to have 2nd lord in 1st house.

As a general effect of this combination, the significations of the 2nd house, such as accumulated wealth, assets, values, self-worth, family values & traditions, mental resources & talents, speech, vision, etc are influenced by the significations of 1st house such as self, soul, vitality, health, head, the constitution of the body, mentality, general life direction & soul purpose, honor, dignity, birth or beginning of life, initiation of everything new, etc

The given combination reflects both auspicious and difficult results. The auspiciousness comes from the fruitful 2nd house which gives more resources for the significance of the 1st house to expand.

The difficulties arise from the fact that the 2nd house ruler in the 1st house is in the 12th sign from its own sign. That is because the 12th house is a malefic house which is called Dusthana Bhava and signifies expenses, losses, and isolation, but also, visions, imagination, creativity, dreams, the ability to manifest dreams into reality, spirituality, etc.

Wealth & Expenses For Self

As the 2nd house signifies primarily wealth, the positioning of its ruler in the 1st house of self directly indicates that individuals with this combination are having plenty of resources in order to function well in life.

Being endowed with wealth, they are capable of being resourceful and harnessing their skills which becomes their primary motivation to take action. These natives have lots of ideas that need plenty of time, energy, and other resources.

Some of the intelligent ways to spend wealth are to expand skills, invest for long-term gains, and be careful not to overspend.

Control your expenses better than your competition. This is where you can always find the competitive advantage.

Speaking of expenses, the given combination is formed with the 12th disposition, which signifies expenses from the most mundane perspective.

The expenses, in the case of this combination, are made for the betterment of self in order to be more, feel more, and achieve more. Hence, this combination yields gains and expenses in an equal manner. As mentioned before, as long as expenses are made in a mature and wise manner, the gains are always bigger than the losses.

What is also important to acknowledge is to remain humble while spending. More specifically, one must not become too selfish and self-centered and also distribute resources to the benefit of others as well.

Analyzing the dignity of the 2nd house ruler in the 12th house gives more clue on how the native spends and which attitude they have towards wealth.

When looking at Taurus Ascendant, the 2nd house ruler Mercury is dignified in 1st house Taurus which shows a very practical attitude towards wealth.

This example shows that these individuals are very wealthy and resourceful, but also detached from the same allowing them to spend freely without experiencing hindrances caused by immature (hoarding) attitudes towards wealth.

Also, in this example, the most valuable asset becomes practical thinking and influential speech which allows one to teach and influence others effectively.

When taking Scorpio Ascendant, the 2nd house ruler Jupiter is dignified in the 1st house Scorpio which shows a financially responsible and deeply wise person.

In fact, both Jupiter and the 2nd house are the major carriers of the significance of wealth as per Vedic which shows that they are especially fortunate regarding valuables.

Meaning that valuables will be always available to them at the right time and places, even when they are anxious about it. For the most part, they do not worry about resources.

For Virgo Ascendant, the 2nd house ruler Venus is debilitated in the 1st house Virgo which shows a selfish approach towards wealth matters. It also shows dissatisfaction or displeasure regardless of how much wealth they have. They always desire more and feel lack which may be the reason for becoming hard-hearted.

They are eager to do whatever it takes, even when doing unethical acts just to get the unquenchable thirst for gains satisfied. An unhealthy way of attaining wealth is the main reason why they feel unfulfilled because their hearts remain hard and souls restless because of probable unethical acts for wealth. If not unethical acts, then the inability to see happiness in other things than wealth causes dissatisfaction.

The secret to improving this situation and promoting the best outcomes of this combination is to involve in charity which helps to purify the soul and take heavy loads off the heart. This will eventually open their hearts and souls towards kindness and the realization that making others happy is highly fulfilling. Also, helping oneself is always attained through helping others.

When analyzing Libra Ascendant, then the 2nd house ruler Mars is in neutral dignity in the 1st house. Because of neutral dignity, most outcomes are dependent on the dignity of Venus, the ruler of Libra.

According to classics, this combination generally shows someone who has a tendency to cheat in order to feel comfortable in life which also makes the heart heavy and does not allow to enjoy the gains.

Also, this set of combinations shows the tendency to spend wealth to satisfy bad desires. They have certain bad habits that cause loss of wealth and vitality due to wrongful expenditure.

However, if Venus is dignified, it shows someone who is very wise, tricky, and fortunate. They might use little lies that do not cause harm to others but help to attain goals quicker. A dignified Venus shows little lies and a tricky approach to benefit their society or workplace.

When it comes to Pisces Ascendant natives, they may have an unrealistic approach toward matters of wealth which leads to incorrect analytical results. Bad decisions and incorrect reasoning is the primary reason for the loss of wealth.

Powerful & Influential Speech

Another major significance of the 2nd astrological house is the usage of speech to express oneself. With the 2nd house ruler in the 1st house, these natives show initiation through their speech mostly.

As the 1st house is one of the most powerful and auspicious houses, because of being Kendra and Trikona simultaneously, it yields auspicious outcomes for the 2nd house.

The most straightforward effect is that their speech becomes highly dynamic, enthusiastic, powerful, and influential.

It also means that they carry lots of responsibility for their words because these lead to certain actions and decisions. Hence, these people should be especially careful about what they say and always consider how their expression influences the society to whom they speak.

The 1st house is like the point of a pencil, which helps to realize ideas of the mind. With this combination, the speech is always on point with something. This is how these individuals amaze their audience.

Be still when you have nothing to say; when genuine passion moves you, say what you’ve got to say, and say it hot.

D. H. Lawrence

Dignity helps to determine the intention of speech, the way of speaking, and the outcomes from the same.

For Gemini Ascendant people, Moon becomes the 2nd house ruler which is in neutral dignity in the 1st house. Hence, lots of results are dependent on Mercury, ruler of Gemini.

By default, this combination shows someone who is a very compassionate speaker and listener which helps them gain all the necessary support and cooperation in their lives.

This combination also shows expenses made in a good manner to help others from compassion and to develop skills related to the 2nd house, such as speech, valuables, etc.

For Taurus Ascendant natives, the 2nd house ruler Mercury is very supportive in the 1st house because it helps them to blend selflessness with merchant skills. Being selfless merchants, they attract gains in a very natural and smooth manner. Selflessness reflects their tendency to speak the truth when either selling something or expressing values allowing for all parties to feel well cared for and comfortable.

The speech they carry is very stable, not very soft nor very aggressive, and also highly persuasive. Having the ability to explain things clearly, they are capable of influencing people easily in a positive manner, as 2nd house ruler is dignified.

Speech Shapes Public Image

It is a widely known fact that speech is the major thing that shapes the overall dignity, name, and fame of the native in front of the public, society, or workplace, depending on the reach of the speech.

Some of The Last Words of God via The Last Prophet [PBUH]

What we say is important… for in most cases the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.

Jim Beggs

As deciphered from the perspective of the Vedic system, the 2nd house ruler in the 1st house influences the self directly and the public indirectly via the direct aspect ray on the 7th astrological house.

Besides Vedic indications, various other scientific studies have shown that people from the public or workplace get the first impression about a specific person according to his/her speech.

Furthermore, other assumptions and judgments are based on the type of speech the specific person radiates. Here we can see that what the natives give out comes back to him/her in a massive amount from the whole public.

There are two sets of combinations that indicate temporary damage to reputation and loss of wealth. The first of which is Pisces Ascendant with 2nd house ruler Mars in 1st house.

Even though Mars is dignified in this example, there are specific illusions mentioned in classical sources which lead them to mistakes in their speech. Because of having an unrealistic approach towards matters of wealth, they tend to speak many errors which leads to distrust from their audience regarding practical worldly matters.

However, because of dignified Mars, their intentions are not bad which makes it easy for them to correct their mistakes and make the greatest comeback and success.

Their dignity also shows a sudden increase in fame for courage which makes them great fulfillers of different tasks. They are willing to take action selflessly which is the key of Pisces Ascendant natives towards public fame.

Another instance is Aquarius Ascendant natives, whose 2nd house ruler Jupiter is in neutral dignity in 1st house Aquarius. Because of that, most outcomes are dependent on the dignity of Saturn, the ruler of Aquarius.

According to the classics, one of the default effects is that individuals with Aquarius Jupiter have faults in speech. This is probably due to the fact that Jupiter in 12th from its own sign loses some kindness making them sound very arrogant and intimidating. Sometimes, their spiritual reasoning is faulty as well unless Saturn is dignified.

Besides this, Jupiter is in 3rd from fiery Sagittarius, which is 1st house expands self-worth. When combining expanded self-worth with a loss of humbleness, the rise of various difficulties is imminent.

That being said, they usually respond in a very angry and aggressive manner to the opposition which is not the true way. Impatience and bad responses almost always lead to losses.

To avoid loss of fame, one must be especially careful before speaking. Remain silent if confusion arises. Always analyze the outcomes of words to avoid spreading bad influence and damaging fame. One must also undertake activities that increase patience in all situations.

Attached To Assets

The given combination of 2nd house ruler in 1st house can also indicate direct attachment to wealth, assets, and worldly resources which can be a good and a bad thing.

In the most direct meaning, having the self, soul, and vitality influenced directly by worldly matters is usually detrimental to the development of the soul.

That is why in BPHS there is a general inauspicious effect from this combination expressed. Namely, individuals with this combination are said to be hard-hearted and angry which can be a direct result of a materialistic approach towards important matters of the 1st house, such as soul, purity, and truth.

Therefore, it is important to learn financial responsibility to mature early in life in this case in order to avoid those small wealth mistakes that can lead to major issues, including damage to the vitality and purity of the soul.

The 2nd house is the second step after initiating something or after taking birth on earth. The second step shows the very first development but also natural talents and mental assets.

If the 2nd house ruler is overall dignified in the 1st house, it shows a mature approach towards worldly matters which indicates soul growth and prosperity.

Alternatively, an undignified example indicates immaturity and irresponsibility which leads to fueling bad habits and loss of wealth along with becoming angry and hard-hearted.

Capricorn Ascendant natives with 2nd house ruler Saturn in 1st house (own sign) are naturally wise in wealth matters for various reasons. Firstly, Capricorn is the earth sign which shows proficiency in various practical sciences, including financial management.

Saturn as 2nd house ruler in its own sign 1st house indicates having a very practical and intellectual mentality allowing them to persist in all works. Besides this, they are efficient at a time and resource management which leads to less waste, expenses, and more gains.

Though there is one important piece of advice for these natives with this set of combinations which is that one must avoid using wealth to satisfy impure desires. Instead, seek spiritually pure ways to spend resources, such as on investments or mental wellness practices.

Family Life

Besides everything else, the 2nd house also signifies all matters of the family. It would be easy and straightforward to conclude that if the 2ndhouse ruler is in the 1st house, then the native would have all family values sorted out early.

However, because of the difficult 12th disposition, there are various delays caused by challenges that must be endured before being able to peacefully settle and create own family.

Generally speaking, this combination shows that one must feel and actually be established in life before even thinking about going own family.

From a negative perspective, selfishness is what causes strife among family members and an inimical disposition within the family.

In order to promote success in both professional and family life, it is important to aim to protect and serve the members of the family.

One of our greatest responsibilities is to take great care of our family members and guide them well. What starts from the home extends to society sooner or later. Hence, healthy families help build a perfect, stable, and well-functioning society.
