Ever gotten the chills from an accurate AF horoscope prediction? Let’s say the stars were adamant about some “big changes” heading your way. Lo and behold, your best friend begins a new relationship, your aunt gets a new haircut, and you get a juicy little raise at work. These all fit the baseline prediction, but are very different in the specifics. That’s where the houses in astrology come in. The 12 houses each rule over different planes of life: Your aunt is experiencing shifts around her first house of self, your bestie is going through some seventh house of partnerships changes, and you have experienced the planets lighting up your second house of income and possessions.
As it’s a material world, the second house is a major topic of discussion among astrologers and astro enthusiasts. But really, anyone can learn about their own second house in astrology to piece together their relationship with money and the physical world.
But first, what the heck are houses and why should you care? Fair question. As Hellenistic astrologer Dalanah of the Moon Matters astrology podcast puts it, there are four instrumental parts of astrology that build the full cosmic picture: zodiac signs, planets, aspects, and houses. “If planets are the subject matter, and zodiac signs are sort of the flavor, then the house is where it’s happening,” Dalanah explains. The houses map out the flight path of your life and detail the happenings of each nook and cranny.
When you look at your birth chart, you’ll notice you have planets in different signs, which then fall into a numbered house. For example, you could have your moon sign (your inner world, emotions, what makes you feel at home) be in free-spirited Sagittarius, all happening within the second house. You might be someone who yearns for adventure and personal freedom, especially as it relates to your income and possessions. Your emotional world would also be highly tied to your sense of financial and earthly security, but with Sag here, you may be a bit impulsive with spending, especially on things like comfort items.
Houses one through six cover personal areas of your life, while houses seven through 12 describe your interactions with others. As a “you” house, the second house is where astrologers look for information on a person’s dealings and attitudes toward the physical world. Here is everything to know about your second house in astrology:
