The Second House

The Second House

The Second Astrological House is all about stuff. It is not just about anyone's stuff, however. It is YOUR STUFF! Things you own! Your body plays a large role here, since your body is one of the few things you can say you have clear title to, although historically we, culturally, have argued that point as well.

The other matter the second house addresses are your possessions or at the very least what you see as your possessions. In other words, if you happen to be in a position of not owning anything, this house will tell you what you THINK you own, and what you value.

Another interesting aspect of this house concerns the throat. Why is this? Because the Second House is ruled by Taurus, or the Bull. Whereas the first house deals with identity and therefore the head, the second continues the theme and moves on down to the throat. As Taurus is ruled by Venus, and we tend to listen to people with lovely voices and we tend to typically not listen to people with unpleasant voices as much, (robot voices, Mr. Hawkins? RIP) it would seem that voices and "prettiness" are linked.

Medically then, this house can show issues with the body or the throat and sometimes even the heart, although there is a better house for that as we will discover later.

A final consideration is that the body can also indicate "membership". Membership in what? Well, Groucho Marx famously said this about the Fryer's Club:

“I don’t want to belong to any club that would accept me as one of its members.”

So yeah, it means membership as in clubs, or organizations.

Groucho's second house, by the way, had a North Node in Sagittarious, meaning his philosophy toward membership in bodies was being developed throughout his life--particuarly around ways to have fun.

Get ready for the third house, as we make our way around the wheel.
