What does the 2nd House Lord in 9th House mean?
When the planet, that rules over the natal 2nd house is positioned in the 8th house from the natal ascendant sign, it means to have the 2nd lord in the 9th.
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 significance of the 9th house, such as righteousness, higher wisdom, ethics, morals, faith, luck, fortune, virtues, religion, philosophy, long foreign journeys, etc.
When considering the fact that the 9th house is one of the very auspicious trine houses named Trikona Bhava in Vedic, this combination yields auspicious effects for the most part during the planetary period of the 2nd house ruler.
On the other hand, the 2nd house ruler in the 9th house means that it is in 8th place from its own sign. The 8th disposition represents the 8th Vedic house which is one of the most difficult houses named Dusthana Bhava in Vedic. Hence, the auspicious results come with events that have difficult intonation.
Results of 2nd House Lord in 9th House
The globally recognized topic of the 2nd Vedic house is wealth which is correct because it is named Dhana Bhava in Vedic. It stands for wealth when translated into English directly.
The positioning and condition of the 2nd house ruler in various houses indicate how wealth flows throughout life in general. Dignity can help determine the attitude toward material resources.
With the 2nd house ruler in the 9th house, one is generally very fortunate regarding assets, valuables, gold, gems, and wealth. The auspicious effect of the 9th house of luck and fortune simply indicates that these individuals are blessed with ample wealth by the almighty God.
Speaking of which, it is always important to bear in mind that the worldly sciences, such as astrology, merely indicate or help translate events, but the blessings actually come from the sole owner of everything in this universe, God Almighty.
There are special kinds of people who get abundant resources as a blessing from God. They are those who are inherently kind, humble, compassionate, sacrificial, and charitable. These adjectives are simultaneously the major significations of the 9th Vedic house.
Speaking of which, individuals with this combination are sacrificial to the extent that they are willing to give up personal abundance and benefits for the sake of others. Such acts are tremendously pious and will eventually be compensated by God after enduring trials.
Then Indeed, with difficulty there is ease. Indeed, with difficulty, there is ease..Surah Al-Inshiraa 94:5-6
Speaking of trials, these are very relevant in this seemingly auspicious combination because of the adverse 8th disposition. The latter shows that the intonation of this combination is adverse.
In other words, these individuals go through various tests and trials before getting blessed with abundance. It is also mentioned in BPHS that initially, they are struggling initially but later on, happy and lead a blissful life.
However, as the general effect of this combination is very auspicious, the 8th disposition clearly shows that the adversities are all beneficial blessings in disguise.
Those who acknowledge the auspiciousness in adversity, are indeed highly blessed and faithful servants of God. Even more blessed are those who make companions around them feel comforted and cared for, even when they themselves are amidst agony.
The dignity of the 2nd house ruler can give valuable insight into the attitude towards wealth which also indicates the way of overcoming adversities.
I shall bring two most prominent examples of the formation of the 2nd house ruler in the 8th house the first of which comes via Pisces Ascendant. In this instance, the 2nd house ruler Mars is in its own sign Scorpio in the 8th house.
According to the classics, Scorpio Mars natives are highly honorable, always ready to take on ventures (travel), and excellent leaders. Their honor comes from their willingness to take action and serve important matters. A dignified Mars always shows readiness to sacrifice personal matters for a better cause.
Because Mars is a naturally malefic planet, the adversities are intensified forcing these individuals to become double the strict, aggressive, and dominant. Hence, they treat their opponents in a harsh manner as well.
They are the ones who may harness overly harsh tactics (sinful) just to let the sinners taste their own medicine. Because of their good intentions, they repent and attain forgiveness from God along with many blessings.
Another example comes from Virgo Ascendant with 2nd house ruler Venus in own sign Taurus in 8th house. As Venus is a naturally benefic planet, this instance indicates fewer struggles but which at the same time are intense enough to initiate the transformation (8th).
This set of combinations clearly shows that one is tremendously compassionate and willing to suffer for the sake of others. During adversities, they become even more loving and compassionate. They are willing to sacrifice comforts and wealth in order to maintain justice, equity, and truth.
Verily, We shall test you with some fear, and hunger, and with some loss of wealth, lives, and offspring. So give good news to those who are patient. Those who say, when inflicted by hardship, ‘Verily to Creator (Al-Ilāh or the God) we belong, and verily to Him shall we return,’ Upon them is the blessings of God and His mercy. And they are the rightly guided.Surah Al-Baqarah 2:155-157
What makes both of these examples special is the fact that Mars and Venus are in their own signs creating the 1st disposition of truth, righteousness, and courage. This clearly empowers their souls with high respect toward morality, righteousness, and truth. Besides this, the 1st disposition is represented by Aries making them highly dutiful and dynamic initiators. Their actions are empowered by righteousness making them unconquerable because of protection by Almighty God, due to their devotion to truth.
The 9th house also signifies fortune which with the 2nd house ruler in the 8th from its own sign indicates blissful destinations after deep transformation of the soul, which is especially prominent for these two Ascendant signs (Pisces, Virgo). Namely, the 1st disposition also signifies the soul and its vitality.
What is the rank of those who sacrifice their resources and time of life in the name of truth (God) or auspicious cause? See it on the other side of the sky. Yes, sacrifice is so honorable because it proves that one is sincere in their actions.
Hence, not only that the blessings of one and only God are tangible, but also intangible which bring unlimited joy and bliss to one’s soul. As a result of attaining the ultimate bliss, which is the love from God, one is prosperous in this life and hereafter.
After having overcome adversities of all kinds, they feel so much relief and assurance that every period of struggle was worth the patience.
Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.John Quincy Adams
Why I write so deeply about it because the significance of the 8th house is not something to take casually or lightly because this Vedic house hides the deepest fears and darkest matters one can not even imagine of.
For instance, these natives can have one of the most deceptive, clever, and relentless enemies to put their patience to a great test. One needs to remain aware that silence and patience help to endure such periods of increased oppression from a very clever sinner.
May God Almighty be the guiding light out of darkness to everyone undergoing such deep struggles in life!
When it comes to Libra Ascendant natives, the 2nd house ruler Mars is in the 8th house Gemini. According to classics, such natives are very brave but also tend to be tricky with their approach, at times, by acting as victims.
The latter is not generally suitable with the significance of Mars, which denotes a straightforward attitude and increased courage leaving no need for beating around the bush.
However, the tricky approach actually favors them in great ways as it helps to tackle enemies with increased cleverness with smart strategies.
Our patience will achieve more than our force.Edmund Burke
This strategy also allows them to maintain patience and along with clever strategies, they make their enemies commit many mistakes. Eventually, their enemies fall into their own holes they have been digging for so long.
To add some contrast to previous examples, let us discover the given combination for Capricorn Ascendant natives. In this instance, the 2nd house ruler Saturn is in the 8th house Virgo which is said to make one dependent on others for resources according to the classics.
In this instance, the dignity of Mercury should be good in order for this set of combinations to lead to auspicious outcomes.
Generally speaking, too much dependence on others leaves these natives less freedom to make decisions increasing the risks of becoming tangled in situations where they can not make dignified decisions. These bad decisions can trigger a chain of events where sudden disasters strike because the undignified allies will sooner or later fall apart and so will the ones who served them.
For so long in this article, I have been writing about adversities as trials that reveal hidden blessings. It may come as to surprise to some that increased fortune and abundance are also part of trials on Earth.
There are many ways in which increased abundance counts as a test that must be passed well in order to attain spiritual bliss along with material gains.
The major test, when becoming wealthier, is how one treats it. A positive sign is when a person becomes more humble when success is increased for this makes them spread a fair portion of it to the needy. This is a sign of a loyal believer who knows that resources are owned by God.
The businessmen will be resurrected on the Day of Judgement amongst the wicked (fujjar), except those who have sincere fear of God (in public and private), and are honest and truthful.The Last Prophet [PBUH]
In fact, those who are wealthier than average, such as businessmen, are constantly tested with wealth. This all comes down to how one manages to control the desires. Nowadays, many businessmen tend to be very clever and deceptive making them acquire lots of wealth quickly which is indeed a trap to an endless dark hole. Blessed are those businessmen who pass this test and become humble when attaining prosperity.
When one remains humble and never set wealth alone as a goal, has indeed passed a major test in life. That is because those who have such empty goals tend to hoard wealth in unlimited ways as wealth is just a thing without fulfilling value by itself. The value of resources comes with a higher goal linked to it. Moreover, hoarding restlessly indicates a lack of belief in God which makes them highly reliant on (foolish) wealth. Same way as statues, wealth cannot save a person, but only the Creator of everything can. This gap of lack can be filled with increased religious devotion anytime before it is late. Whoever feels this lack, start increasing faith immediately and everything will improve.
How many times has one been told that everything is owned by God and one should be always aware of it and never become controlled by wealth? No poor or rich person must ever commit unethical acts to gain (quick) wealth.
The greatest example to illustrate this effect is from Scorpio Ascendant natives whose 2nd house ruler Jupiter is exalted in the 8th house Cancer. Jupiter is the planet of humbleness and faith the exaltation of which in the compassionate sign Cancer indicates a person who is unconditionally selfless, humble, and charitable.
The more these natives gain, the more they would like to give away for charity. Such individuals are so faithful, devoted to truth, and religious that they follow righteousness very strictly. Besides this, their tremendously amplified compassion makes them want others to experience the same amount of bliss as they do. Well, that is a very powerful sign that one has tremendously strong faith in God Almighty!
When it comes to Aquarius Ascendant natives whose 2nd house ruler Jupiter is in the 8th house, moral superiority in business is indicated accordion to classics. It is likely due to the fact that these individuals integrate religious code and wisdom into their venture making them prosperous in the business world. Maintaining religious awareness while running a venture comes naturally to them.
Diligent & Religiously Mindful
The 3rd Vedic house is deeply linked with the 8th house through the Bhavat Bhavam theory. It consists of the idea that the 8th place from the 8th house is the 3rd house of skills, effort, and communication.
This connection between those houses reflects the fact that while enduring more than average struggles, one learns many skills to survive them whether one wants them or not. Thus, these individuals gain many important skills during the planetary period of the 2nd house ruler in the 9th house.
When combining the valuable experiences with the 9th Vedic house significations, it is clear that these individuals can understand higher wisdom in a very deep way. That is, they have experienced things that make them realize that everything just makes sense in the final religious text.
In BPHS it is also clearly mentioned that these individuals will be devoted to studying the religious code deeply and become happy on account of that. They will also visit religiously significant places. The 3rd disposition indicates that they are diligent in higher studies making them highly knowledgeable.
One great example to illustrate here comes from Aquarius Ascendant whose 2nd house ruler Jupiter is in the 8th house Libra. When it comes to Jupiter, its positioning in an inimical sign does not yield immaturity regarding the soul. It means that religious wisdom can never be immature no matter what the circumstances. It is just that the native with Jupiter in inimical sign often finds themselves in circumstances where they attract enmity.
When it comes to this combination, one is diplomatic and well-behaved. Individuals with Libra Jupiter adore to welcome, host, or serve religiously important people. They experience struggles because of being religious in environments where it is often conflicted.
After enduring enmity, they learn how to bring an important message to everyone. During this process, they gain important religious wisdom as well making them highly prosperous in both the material and spiritual planes. That is, they fulfill their goals ethically according to religious code. It is important to note that the depositor Venus should be dignified to attain success in both planes in a balanced manner.
