So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 4th house Lord in 2nd house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Taurus Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 4th house with Leo sign and sits in the 2nd house in the sign of Gemini. It shows that native's ego and sense of pride gets developed when he is working with his father in family business. Here, parents become a source of wealth as 4th house is Mother and Sun is Father. Mother has an equal say in family matters. As Gemini is sign of Business, it clearly shows someone getting involved in family business.
Moon - So it is Aries Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 4th house with Cancer sign and sits in 2nd house in Taurus, where it is exalted. Here Mother alone becomes the most important person in family. Person is highly attached with mother. This position gives lots of wealth from mother and home. This also shows a person who is teacher and earns from teaching kids as 4th house is early education, 2nd house is speech and Moon is nourishment, hence it becomes important in careers like teaching and nursing.
Mars - Mars can be 4th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Capricorn Ascendant - So if it is Capricorn Ascendant, Mars rules 4th & 11th house and sits in 2nd house in Aquarius sign. This position of Mars will bring some positive and some negative impacts. This shows harsh relations with brother over some property matters. Also, some aggressive environment and arguments within family. At the same time, these people become guard or protector of family and wealth. They can earn a lot from real estate business.
Leo Ascendant - Now if it is Leo Ascendant, Mars rules 4th & 9th house and sits in 2nd house in Virgo sign. Almost all the things told above can be seen from this position too as Mars is in enemy sign here also. Additionally, relations with mother become transformative. Mother has to go through some sudden ups and downs in life. Here person can be a Lawyer too as Mars rules the 9th house of Law and sits in the sign of disputes and conflicts, i.e. Virgo, in the house of Wealth.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 4th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Pisces Ascendant - If it is Pisces Ascendant, Mercury rules 4th & 7th houses and sits in 2nd house in Aries. This shows a very communicative relation with mother. Mother was very calculative person who taught the native about how to make and save his wealth. This position also suggest a family business like scenario. This gives a very direct speech, this person never mince with words. At the same time, he is very practical about his wealth and family needs.
Gemini Ascendant - If it is Gemini Ascendant, then Mercury rules 4th & 1st house and sits in 2nd house in Cancer. Most of results will be same as we discussed in earlier para. Major difference is that this person will have a very emotional way of speaking, as Mercury is in the sign of Cancer. Hence, this person can be a better businessman than the earlier one as he will first try to emotionally connect with customer and then sell his product. But it can back-fire too as getting too much emotional may harm the business.
Venus - Venus also can be 4th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Aquarius Ascendant - If it is Aquarius Ascendant, Venus rules 4th & 9th house and sits in 2nd house in Pisces sign, where it is exalted. These are the people whom we can say as born with silver spoon. Planet of Wealth is exalted in the house of Wealth. Huge wealth from Family, Mother and Family Business. They can do great in business related with conveniences. Extremely beautiful relation with mother. Great family environment.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, Venus rules 4th & 11th house and sits in 2nd house in Leo. It shows that a guy will get a wife who is very demanding, means she will like only the best things in life. The person himself wants to live life like a King. Here, wealth factor will not be as good as the earlier one, but it won't be too bad either. One thing is that desire of living a Kingly life will keep them motivated to work hard and earn more. Its not that this person will not get wealth, but he may not be satisfied with his earnings.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 4th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Virgo Ascendant - If it is Virgo Ascendant, Jupiter rules 4th & 7th house and sits in 2nd house in Libra Sign. Jupiter expands the things related to house where it sits, so here it expands the family and wealth of person. It shows person wants to keep a very balanced relation with everyone in family. It also shows a person earning from teaching. Else it can be a person in business of Finance. Home Environment had been Religious. Person remains dissatisfied with the wealth and support he receives from Mother or Home.
Sagittarius Ascendant - If it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Jupiter rules 4th & 1st house and sits in 2nd house in Capricorn, where it is debilitated. This creates a situation where person gets wealth from his family and mother but he is not able to hold on to it. Here, wealth doesn't stay with person if Jupiter is really close to exact debilitation degrees. It also shows not so good relations with mother and person not having right values in life. Spirituality goes for a toss.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 4th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 4th house lord, Saturn in 2nd house (for Libra/Scorpio Ascendants respectively) shows that person lives life in two phases regarding wealth. 1st phase is up to 30 years where he starves for money. He lives a frugal early life where he is almost in the position of begging. He is unable to make any wealth, unable to save any money. Even if he somehow saves some little money, that gets spent due to some unfortunate sudden event. Stressful relations in family. They feel detached from family. And then the 2nd phase of life after 30, when they start getting wealth and saving it. Saturn makes them realize the value of money. Now, they are very realistic about wealth and hence they live a good 2nd phase of life. Key for them to be away from family as soon as possible and be independent. Their prosperity lies in being independent.
Rahu - If Rahu is 4th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 2nd house in Sagittarius then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Sagittarius in 2nd house shows a person who has always felt that his family environment is quite unusual or different from homes of their friends. It also makes them obsessive about religion and higher studies. They become voracious readers. This position gives lots of wealth. They are the super rich fellows in society. Their source of income is unusual and foreign.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 4th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 2nd house in Virgo 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. 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.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
