Today, 10th house lord sitting in 2nd house.
So first of all, let's see what 2nd house and 10th house represent -
2nd house represents Family, Wealth, Speech, Family Lineage, Values, Mouth, Face, Throat, food you like to eat, Assets etc.
10th house represents things like Government, Father, Authority, Fame, Work Environment etc. Here, Authority should not be understood in literal sense, like someone got a Government job or became a Manager or CEO of a Firm. Here Authority means doing any work with complete perfection and your opinion matters when comes to making any decision related to that work, so even a good Hacker can be a person of authority as he is master of that particular work. 10th house is one of the houses normally checked for Career/Work/Duty in Life.
Now, what does it mean to have 10th house lord sitting in 2nd house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 10th house of your horoscope is sitting in the 2nd house of horoscope.
Now, what is the impact of having 10th house lord sitting in 2nd house?
This position shows in a generic way that your work and work environment is adding to the Wealth of Family. But what this specifically shows is an Entrepreneur or a Businessman because the planet which rules over your work is sitting in house of Family. So, it shows that you follow the work of Family. It is like someone in Family Business. Now, this can be following the same Profession too. Like, if there is a Family of Doctors/Lawyers, you would be in same Profession. So, it is more like following a family lineage in matter of work. It also shows someone who may be working from home as 10th house lord is coming in 2nd house, so work is coming within the four walls of home.
Now, results may be different due to aspect, conjunctions of other planets or the planet being Retrograde or Combust. Moreover, now we also need to check the strength of 2nd house lord as 10th house lord is going in 2nd house. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 10th house Lord in 2nd house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Scorpio Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 10th house with Leo sign and sits in the 2nd house in the sign of Sagittarius. This surely shows that you follow the path of your father in Career. You do what your Father has done. So, even if Father goes through 2 different Professions in his life, you will also follow the exact same 2 Professions. It is because Father is influencing person's Values. What Father says, person thinks it is valuable. So, he always follows Father's advice. Law, Teaching and Govt Job is common trend here as Sagittarius and Sun represent these things.
Moon - So it is Libra Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 10th house with Cancer sign and sits in 2nd house in Scorpio, where it is debilitated. If Moon is nearby exact degree of debilitation, it shows someone who gets stressed due to his work and also loses his peace of mind and wealth in process. A normal job or career may bring stress in life. As Scorpio is kind of weird/unusual sign, these people would be better in some unusual careers like Psychiatrist, Occultist, Healers etc. It is always better for them to follow a career where they find emotional connection and their mind is used in most unusual ways.
Mars - Mars can be 10th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Cancer Ascendant - So if it is Cancer Ascendant, Mars rules 10th & 5th house and sits in 2nd house in Leo sign. This shows someone who is a real defender and guard of his family, values and wealth. Mars works extraordinarily in Leo and Capricorn as these two signs represent Govt and Mars, as a Soldier, wants to work under Govt. So, this can show anyone in defense/security services of Govt. It can also show an athlete. Mars will bring some malefic impact on 2nd house of speech but whenever they use Harsh Speech, it is for a very genuine reason. It can also show a Lawyer or Govt Spokesperson or Motivational Speaker.
Aquarius Ascendant - Now if it is Aquarius Ascendant, Mars rules 3rd & 10th house and sits in 2nd house in Pisces sign. Now, Mars's speech goes from Fiery (Leo) to Calm & Spiritual (Pisces). These people can use their speech in Spiritual Matters and as Mars rules 8th house through Scorpio, it brings Occult related energy too. So, these people can be very good as Spiritual Speakers, Martial Arts and Yoga Teachers etc. It is better for them to follow a Spiritual & Occultist path in Career.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 10th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Virgo Ascendant - If it is Virgo Ascendant, Mercury rules 10th & 1st houses and sits in 2nd house in Libra. Now, this person is a real speaker as Mercury is communication and it is in the house of speech. They can be good in diplomacy as Libra is sign of Diplomacy. But they can earn through their communications, either oral or written. As 2nd house also relates with Wealth, they will be working in Financial Field as Managers etc either in Banks or Corporate.
Sagittarius Ascendant - If it is Sagittarius Ascendant, then Mercury rules 7th and 10th house and sits in 2nd house in Capricorn. This shows a Lawyer as Capricorn is the sign of Govt and Law & Order. More so, if Mercury is in Sravana Nakshatra here, as it makes a perfect counselor. Also, 10th house is ruled by Virgo sign, a sign of conflicts. Mercury in Capricorn (Saturn ruled sign) limits the communication. It means they will only speak what is necessary, precise and prefect. They will never blabber around. This makes them even more effective as a Lawyer. Alternatively, Finance related jobs in Govt are always there.
Venus - Venus also can be 10th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Leo Ascendant - If it is Leo Ascendant, Venus rules 10th & 3rd house and sits in 2nd house in Virgo sign, where it is debilitated. If Venus is nearby its exact degree of debilitation, it shows that this person may get along in a love matter at office which may ruin his wealth or family life, so, person should be careful about it. At the same time, it shows that you are good at health care services and if Venus is in Hasta Nakshatra here, it shows a person who has divine healing touch ability. But in matters of wealth and relations, person needs to be careful, at least during 20s.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, Venus rules 5th & 10th house and sits in 2nd house in Aquarius. Here, Venus is in friendly sign, so much better position. This clearly shows that person is earning wealth from Large Organizations/MNCs while working in an authoritative position. Basic gist of Aquarius is working towards higher goals and social welfare and Venus s planet of Service and Devotion, it shows that someone can earn wealth by serving other people in matters of social welfare. Especially, if Venus is in Satabhisha Nakshatra, which is related with Healing, it shows someone serving people in health care field.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 10th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Pisces Ascendant - If it is Pisces Ascendant, Jupiter rules 10th & 1st house and sits in 2nd house in Aries Sign. This is another position which can show a motivational speaker as Jupiter is exchanging energy with Mars. These are highly learned people and seen as Guides/Mentor in Family. They have a very intelligent way of speaking and can become good counselors. Alternatively, it shows someone in Financial Business or working as Finance Manager/Counselor. Person is very wealthy.
Gemini Ascendant - If it is Gemini Ascendant, Jupiter rules 7th & 10th house and sits in 2nd house in Cancer, where it is exalted. This is the best position among all. Extremely rich person. These people can be seen as highly learned Spiritual Gurus. They can be a guide/mentor to all. They must follow a spiritual path of life, that's where they will get the peace of mind. As always, nothing much to say when things are fine.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 10th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 10th house lord, Saturn in 2nd house (for Aries/Taurus Ascendants respectively) shows that person's family life is not settled at least till mid 30s. Money saving will be hard till then. Money will come and go. They see such dearth of money and lack of good family environment in early life that they realize the value of money early in life, hence in 2nd part of life they are going to be very cautious about money. These people taste success only after the toughest of labor. Saturn doesn't give anything easily in life and here the family and wealth are getting delayed. These people can be Lawyers or working in Govt.
Rahu - If Rahu is 10th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 2nd house in Gemini then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Gemini in 2nd house will transform Rahu as Mercury as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. At the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Gemini in 2nd house basically shows that someone is filthy rich but who also spends with same speed. Family Environment may be very unusual one. Source of Wealth is Foreign or Unusual. This person is more successful in business and making his own wealth. At the same time, person is highly communicative. It may be impossible to keep this person silent. It shows someone gaining wealth by working in large organizations in field of communication and business development.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 10th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 2nd house in Pisces then 1st of all we need to make sure of Mars' position as it is the main ruler. As Ketu isolates/separates a person from the things related to the house Ketu is sitting, here it actually separates person from the concept of hoarding and gaining wealth. And that's why, people with Ketu in 2nd or 11th house end up as the richest people in the world because whatever you don't care for in life comes very easy to you. They don't care for wealth, so wealth comes easy. Here, Wealth will come from Religious, Mystical or Spiritual resources. Ketu in 2nd house also becomes a karaka of 2nd marriage, so best way to avoid any such situation is to marry your spouse twice. It may also give a malefic speech to person. They feel isolation from family too, like both sides are unable to understand each other's point of view. It may also send person away from family in early childhood. Although, Ketu in Pisces is best position of Ketu, but Ketu will still hurt jeeva karakas of 2nd house.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
