Today, 7th house lord sitting in 2nd house.
So first of all, let's see what 2nd house and 7th house represent -
2nd house represents Family, Wealth, Speech, Family Lineage, Values, Mouth, Face, Throat, food you like to eat, Assets etc.
7th house is house of market place, other people (masses), business partnerships, agreements, marriage, spouse, marital happiness etc.
Now, what does it mean to have 7th house lord sitting in 2nd house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 7th house of your horoscope is sitting in the 2nd house of horoscope.
Now, what is the impact of having 7th house lord sitting in 2nd house?
Its generic interpretation is that Other People of 7th house are coming and adding to your Wealth in 2nd house. So, this is a placement which strongly shows a Businessman. It shows someone dealing with other people in market place and earning wealth. It also shows that real value or wealth in your life comes when you are doing Business, either on your own or in Partnership. At personal level, you feel valuable when you are in a relationship. Your partner increases the worthiness of your life. It also shows that partner is bringing lots of wealth in family. At the same time, it shows that your partner will transform your family or wealth, as 7th lord is going 8 places away from own house and 8th house is house of transformation. This can be either a positive or negative transformation depending on the nature and dignity of planet.
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 7th 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 7th house Lord in 2nd house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Aquarius Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 7th house with Leo sign and sits in the 2nd house in the sign of Pisces. It shows that you get business partner or marriage partner is very egoistic & authoritative person and takes an authoritative position in your family too after marriage. That is, after marriage they would desire to be the one running the family. As Sun is still a mild-malefic and cruel planet, though Satvic, it shows that due to this authoritative nature, you get into ego battles with your spouse which spoils family environment. But as Sun is still in a friendly sign, the chances of marriage to survive are higher.
Moon - So it is Capricorn Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 7th house with Cancer sign and sits in 2nd house in Aquarius. This shows that your partner is very motherly and nourishing. You get to interact a lot with elderly ladies in your business. At the same time, your life partner may have very scientific or research oriented mind by which they will keep on thinking how to increase the wealth or improve family conditions through innovative ways. It also shows that your spouse may be working in Large Organizations or with Large Group of People.
Mars - Mars can be 7th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Libra Ascendant - So if it is Libra Ascendant, Mars rules 7th & 2nd house and sits in 2nd house in Scorpio sign. It shows that your spouse will have dominating nature and at the same time they will work as Guard/Protector of Family and Wealth. So, this is not a bad placement considering Mars is in own sign. Here, even if arguments take place between couple, the aim is always family welfare. Spouse will always think that he is under duty to protect his family. Mars takes a protective role here rather than a destructive role.
Taurus Ascendant - Now if it is Taurus Ascendant, Mars rules 7th & 12th house and sits in 2nd house in Gemini sign. Here, things are very different as Mars is in enemy sign. Here Communications of Spouse may be very aggressive and harsh. It will lead to the fights within family. Here, wealth may be a reason behind fights. This shows a poor relation with brothers too as Mars is karaka of Brothers. Here, person ends up in being a mediator between the family members in matters of disputes. Any other yoga or dasha can change the scenario totally.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 7th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Sagittarius Ascendant - If it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Mercury rules 7th & 10th houses and sits in 2nd house in Capricorn. This shows a communicative and business oriented spouse. This may be a situation where person gets married and spouse brings 100s of business ideas in family. With this position, person speaks less but speaks very intelligently. Here, they build their business and wealth slowly but surely. Mercury in 2nd house can bring good amount of wealth from Business and Quick Intellect.
Pisces Ascendant - If it is Pisces Ascendant, then Mercury rules 4th and 7th house and sits in 2nd house in Aries. There is again energy exchange between Mercury and Mars. It shows that spouse may have very analytical & critical nature and like to nitpick the faults in family or wealth related matters. This nature brings disputes in family and lots of arguments. Person needs to check this habit of being too much critical for own good. Again, any other yoga or dasha can change the scenario totally.
Venus - Venus also can be 7th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Scorpio Ascendant - If it is Scorpio Ascendant, Venus rules 7th & 12th house and sits in 2nd house in Sagittarius sign. As Venus isall about beauty and wealth, this shows a spouse who is very beautiful and brings great wealth to the native's family. As Sagittarius is sign of Religion, Philosophy and different ethnic people etc, it shows that your spouse can be from different culture or country and may be of a very spiritual nature too. This person loves to read about different philosophies and can be impressed or brought into relation only through knowledge and wisdom rather than beauty. It means they don't get impressed by a beautiful lady or a handsome hunk but they will be impressed if someone can interpret Geeta or Bible in a completely unique way. Although, Venus is in enemy sign of Jupiter, but the enmity of Jupiter and Venus is more about Principles and Values rather than life threatening enmity. So, I consider it as a neutral place for Venus.
Aries Ascendant - If it is Aries Ascendant, Venus rules 2nd & 7th house and sits in 2nd house in Taurus. This is even better as Venus is in its own sign. All the good qualities regarding wealth and beauty are going to increase manifold. This person and spouse both will be money oriented and they will get it, not much hunger towards knowledge and philosophy. A very good placement if someone is looking for Wealth and Beauty.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 7th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Gemini Ascendant - If it is Gemini Ascendant, Jupiter rules 7th & 10th house and sits in 2nd house in Cancer Sign, where it is exalted. This is by far best placement. Spouse comes with all the knowledge and wisdom of the world and become kind of guide to the whole family. It is like getting married to a Spiritual Guru or Sage. As Jupiter also represents Wealth, this position can also bring abundance of wealth. So, knowledge and wealth both are provided here.
Virgo Ascendant - If it is Virgo Ascendant, Jupiter rules 4th & 7th house and sits in 2nd house in Libra. Here, Jupiter is in enemy sign but as I said Jupiter and Venus are not harsh enemies, just disagreements on values. So, this is kind of neutral placement. Here also, Jupiter brings wealth & knowledge as Jupiter signifies these things but it won't be in abundance like the earlier position, but still good enough wealth as Venus and Jupiter both are wealth giving planets and Jupiter expands the results of the house it sits in. Here, Jupiter will bring Spiritual Wisdom in family as it rules the Spiritual sign of Pisces.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 7th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 7th house lord, Saturn in 2nd house (for Cancer/Leo Ascendants respectively) shows that person's family life goes through a transformation after marriage or during Saturn MD, especially if it is Cancer Ascendant. Here, age difference between native and spouse may be big. Spouse will be like a disciplinarian and will have all the rules and regulations. Best thing to do here is to delay the marriage till you enter 30s. Then Saturn brings stability in Marriage. It also shows that person was detached from his family lineage during his childhood or didn't get proper nourishment in family. They have seen the hard face of poverty in their 1st half of life. This is one position which helps in 2nd half of life. 1st half would be very stressful. Again, any other yoga or dasha can change the scenario totally.
Rahu - If Rahu is 7th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 2nd 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 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 Virgo in 2nd house basically indicates that they will have an unusual family environment. Their wealth source will be foreign. This position may also give a foreign spouse as Rahu signifies Foreign People or Things. This also shows that spouse is highly analytical or critical at times, almost obsessed for perfection and that would lead to disputes in family. As Rahu is in house of Wealth, Wealth in Family will be increased manifold.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 7th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 2nd 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 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. Ketu in Gemini also shows someone not too much communicative or business minded.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
