Today, 2nd house lord sitting in 9th house.
So first of all, let's see what 2nd house and 9th house represent -
2nd house represents Family, Wealth, Speech, Family Lineage, Values, Mouth, Face, Throat, food you like to eat, Assets etc.
9th house represents Higher Education, Philosophy, Religion, Law, Faith, Fortune, Gurus, Teachings of Father (as father is 1st Guru we get) etc.
Now, what does it mean to have 2nd house lord sitting in 9th house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 2nd house of your horoscope is sitting in the 9th house of horoscope.
Now, what is the impact of having 2nd house lord sitting in 9th house?
Its generic interpretation is that person's wealth and resources are coming from Religion, Philosophy, Higher Education etc. As 2nd house lord is going 8 places away from its own house and 8th house is house of death, it shows that this person will be willing to leave his family for higher learning. So, it is not the actual death of family but person is so much engrossed with his studies that he pays no attention towards family related things. This is one of the Dhan Yogas.
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 9th house lord as 2nd house lord is going in 9th house. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 2nd house Lord in 9th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Cancer Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 2nd house with Leo sign and sits in the 9th house in the sign of Pisces. It shows that your father was the source of all the religious and spiritual knowledge. Father instilled just the right values in person and later on it become the source of wealth. Extremely good relation with father and person values the father's teaching. It certainly shows a career in field of higher education.
Moon - So it is Gemini Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 2nd house and sits in 9th house in Aquarius. It shows a person with highly scientific mind. Though Moon is in house of religion but these people will never trust anything read unless it is scientifically proved to them. They get this nature from Mother. Their beliefs are based on proof rather than theory.
Mars - Mars can be 2nd house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Pisces Ascendant - So if it is Pisces Ascendant, Mars rules 2nd & 9th house and sits in 9th house in Scorpio sign and it is in its own sign here. As it is in its own sign, here chances of leaving the family is very less. Here, it shows that person is headstrong about his reliefs and higher learning and for defending that he can take up arguments even with Father or Gurus. This person feels that he didn't get right knowledge from Gurus and therefore he is willing to correct them. But at the same time, he is very protective of his own beliefs. We can see these people as those research scholars who have one or the other disagreements with their guides.
Libra Ascendant - Now if it is Libra Ascendant, Mars rules 2nd & 7th house and sits in 9th house in Gemini sign. Here, it actually takes the shape of Lawyer as Mars is fighter, 9th house is Law and Gemini is sign of Communications. Here also disagreement remains with Gurus. Headstrong nature in higher beliefs remain as is.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 2nd house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Taurus Ascendant - If it is Taurus Ascendant, Mercury rules 2nd & 5th houses and sits in 9th house in Capricorn. Another position which can show a lawyer as Capricorn is sign of law and order, 9th house is house of law and Mercury is all about communications. Here they are curious about higher learning and would be inclined to read whatever they are interested in.
Leo Ascendant - If it is Leo Ascendant, then Mercury rules 2nd & 11th house and sits in 9th house in Aries. Here person shows his analytical nature in their higher studies. That's why, there is a great chance that they become Professors or Lecturers in University. They are open to read about different religions and hence they may become religious teachers and spiritual speakers.
Venus - Venus also can be 2nd house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Aries Ascendant - If it is an Aries Ascendant, Venus rules 2nd & 7th house and sits in 9th house in Sagittarius sign. This shows someone who loves travelling far places and learns from the people he meets. They love discussions about religion and philosophy. It also shows that spouse may be from a different religion. Career in Academics is on due to love fr higher education.
Virgo Ascendant - If it is Virgo Ascendant, Venus rules 2nd & 9th house and sits in 9th house in Taurus. As Venus is in own sign, everything said above becomes profound. They may also travel for business related with articles of conveniences. All other possibilities remain as is.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 2nd house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Scorpio Ascendant - If it is Scorpio Ascendant, Jupiter rules 2nd & 5th house and sits in 9th house in Cancer Sign, where it is exalted. This is where the real color of this placement will come. As Jupiter is exalted, least chances that person will leave his family for religious pursuits. Jupiter is karaka of 2nd and 9th house both and sitting exalted in 9th house. These are highly learned individuals who value knowledge most. So, there are Professors or Doctorates, but then there are few who can debate with Doctorates and prove them wrong. This is one such position. Career in the field of Spirituality and Religion.
Aquarius Ascendant - If it is Aquarius Ascendant, Jupiter rules 2nd & 11th house and sits in 9th house in Libra. Here also person is religiously inclined but not in that profound manner. Here, person likes to keep a balance between different religious views. This person doesn't want conflicts. This position also indicates someone who is in finance related business and for that he travels a lot.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 2nd house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 2nd house lord, Saturn in 9th house (for Sagittarius/Capricorn Ascendants respectively) shows that person initially didn't get right teachings and values from his teachers. They tried hard to find true teachers but no luck. Then in 30s they found real Gurus and it opened the whole existence for them. So, higher learning/education comes here with some delay but as always Saturn only delays, not denies. Saturn in 9th house also shows a lawyer and judge.
Rahu - If Rahu is 2nd house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 9th house in Virgo then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Virgo in 9th house shows a person who is obsessed with religion, various philosophies and rituals. He analyses every religion with critical attitude and this raises disputes and conflicts. It may make them controversial but they give a damn about it. A highly intelligent person.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 2nd house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 9th house in Gemini 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 isolates person from the religious beliefs. Person feels that whatever religious stuff he is receiving from Family, Society and Gurus doesn't hold any truth and real truth is somewhere else. As Ketu represents research, these people research a lot on various religions to find the real truth.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
