Today, 9th house lord sitting in 2nd 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 9th house lord sitting in 2nd house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 9th house of your horoscope is sitting in the 2nd house of horoscope.
Now, what is the impact of having 9th house lord sitting in 2nd house?
Its generic interpretation is that this person's higher education, knowledge and philosophical studies of life become helpful in gaining wealth. His Gurus and Teachers become source of his earning. People of different ethnicity become part of his family. Person earns through publication. They like to speak about religion, philosophy and higher education. They value religious and moral teachings. At the same time, if malefic planet in wrong dignity are involved, it means person will find it tough to make wealth through his higher learning.
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 9th 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 9th house Lord in 2nd house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Sagittarius Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 9th house with Leo sign and sits in the 2nd house in the sign of Capricorn. As Capricorn is sign ruled by Sun's biggest enemy Saturn and Sun is mild-malefic planet, this shows that person actually had a hard time saving wealth from his higher learning. This shows that person got involved with some authoritative religious Guru, which ended in his loss of wealth. It also shows a stressful relation with father as father has a very narrow vision how a family should function and native himself is as stubborn as father.
Moon - So it is Scorpio Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 9th house with Cancer sign and sits in 2nd house in Sagittarius. This changes situation a great deal as Moon is in its best friend's sign. This shows a person who is emotionally involved with his religious and higher studies. It shows that Mother gave all the right religious, moral and philosophical values in life. This shows that higher learning received at far distant places proved helpful in making wealth. This shows a very religious family environment and mother as the most important member of family.
Mars - Mars can be 9th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Leo Ascendant - So if it is Leo Ascendant, Mars rules 9th & 4th house and sits in 2nd house in Virgo sign. As Mars is a malefic planet and it is in enemy sign, it shows that person is getting into argument and disputes within family over wealth matters. This will give a very harsh speech. Additionally, this can make a Lawyer as 9th house relates to Law, Virgo represents Conflicts and Mars is a Fighter. So, it clearly shows a person who earns his wealth through practicing Law.
Pisces Ascendant - Now if it is Pisces Ascendant, Mars rules 2nd & 9th house and sits in 2nd house in Aries sign. This is a much better position of Mars as it is in its own sign. This person will become protector or guard of his family and wealth. They may be earning wealth by serving Govt as Soldier, Police etc. Speech will still be strict but lesser chances of any argument and fight and if at all anything like that takes place, it is for the purpose of benefit of family and wealth.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 9th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Libra Ascendant - If it is Libra Ascendant, Mercury rules 9th & 12th houses and sits in 2nd house in Scorpio. This shows someone wants to collect lots of information on higher studies, religion and philosophy. They are equally interested in mysticism. Then they want to communicate the same knowledge to others through Teaching, Speech or Writing. This shows someone earning through Writing or Publishing. As 2nd house is ruled by Scorpio, it shows that family environment and wealth has gone through lots of transformation/changes.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, then Mercury rules 6th and 9th house and sits in 2nd house in Aquarius. This is much better placement as Mercury is in friendly sign. This can show few things. This shows a person who is very analytical and critical about his higher learning and Gurus. It shows someone using his writing for not only gaining wealth but for social welfare too. So, we can see all those authors from this position who write on Religion, Philosophy and on Social Issues. Also, this shows someone working in Large Organizations in a job related with communications, counseling or analysis. Overall, good wealth.
Venus - Venus also can be 9th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Virgo Ascendant - If it is Virgo Ascendant, Venus rules 9th & 2nd house and sits in 2nd house in Libra sign. Venus is well placed in its own sign. It shows person is earning lots of wealth from his higher education and also from his creative pursuits. They are from a rich family. They are sweet talkers. For a guy, it shows someone's wife is coming from a different ethnicity and bringing good wealth. This person values higher education as his real wealth.
Aquarius Ascendant - If it is Aquarius Ascendant, Venus rules 4th & 9th house and sits in 2nd house in Pisces, where it is exalted. This is even better situation as Venus is in exaltation. All the results narrated above can be seen here but thosewill be multiplied manifold as Venus is exalted. They are those born with silver spoon in mouth. This is extremely good position. Only one thing goes wrong with exalted Venus is that they look for most spiritual and devotional love, and in today's day and age, it is very unlikely that you will get such lover. So in relationship matters, they suffer.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 9th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Aries Ascendant - If it is Aries Ascendant, Jupiter rules 9th & 12th house and sits in 2nd house in Taurus Sign. This again shows extreme wealth. Although, Jupiter is in enemy sign but it is karaka of 2nd house of wealth and expands the results of house it sits in. As it is sitting in 2nd house and Taurus, which both represent Wealth and Assets, it shows someone gaining and expanding his wealth through out his life. Higher Education and Teaching becomes a source of wealth. They can also gain through Counseling. They are seen as Guide or Guru in Society and their own Family.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, Jupiter rules 6th & 9th house and sits in 2nd house in Leo. This is even better position as Jupiter is in friendly sign. As Leo is sign of Authority, being ruled by Sun, this shows a very authoritative teacher. They are best regarded as highly spiritual leader or Guru, as 9th house of religion is ruled by spiritual sign of Pisces. They are seen in Society as Spiritual Master who guide others through their speech and counseling.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 9th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 9th house lord, Saturn in 2nd house (for Gemini/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. Finding the right teacher and education early in life can be the biggest hurdle. Things can be little bit better for Taurus Ascendants, as Saturn is in a friendly sign Gemini but not much. They see such dearth of money and lack of good family environment in early life that they realize the value of money in life, hence in 2nd part of life they are going to be very cautious about money. For Gemini Ascendant, they won't leave their mother's company at least till mid 30s but they may be taken away from Family. 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.
Rahu - If Rahu is 9th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 2nd house in Cancer then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Cancer in 2nd house will transform Rahu as Moon 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 Cancer in 2nd house basically indicates a person who is unable to control his emotions. Either ways, they are either very happy or very sad. Either on cloud 9 or down in depression. Here, emotions belong to Family matters most of the times. As Rahu explodes everything, here it explodes wealth, means it can make someone filthy rich, , 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. Here, person may have dubious religious belief or he may have some fake Gurus who may cheat him.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 9th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 2nd house in Aries 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.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
