So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 6th house Lord in 2nd house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Pisces Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 6th house with Leo sign and sits in the 2nd house in the sign of Aries, where it is exalted. It shows that native will gain wealth from the sources given by father or through any Govt Job. It shows that Father is key figure in family who guides everyone in family, sometimes up to the limits of dominating others. Person in most cases would be serving a Govt Agency and would have an authoritative position.
Moon - So it is Aquarius Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 6th house with Cancer sign and sits in 2nd house in Pisces. This person is all about serving, nurturing and taking care of others, specially those who are unhealthy or under privileged and that work provides them their wealth. Their service to others make them spiritual and they use spiritual knowledge in motivating down trodden people. This time mother is key figure in home and is very spiritual in nature. Relation with mother is very spiritual one.
Mars - Mars can be 6th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Scorpio Ascendant - So if it is Scorpio Ascendant, Mars rules 6th & 1st house and sits in 2nd house in Sagittarius sign. It shows someone who is very determined to win over his enemies and obstacles through his higher knowledge, philosophy and law. It shows someone who has dynamic way of speaking and gaining wealth through his speech. As Mars is significator of land and loans both, it shows someone taking loan to have wealth so that he can buy land or home. Person will have an aggressive way of speaking.
Gemini Ascendant - Now if it is Gemini Ascendant, Mars rules 6th & 11th house and sits in 2nd house in Cancer sign, where it is debilitated. If Mars is nearby the actual degree of debilitation, it shows someone getting into disputes and it is spoiling family environment. Debts taken by person won't be fruitful. It shows struggle for dominance within family, specially with brothers. It shows someone having ill speech. Person will be fond of non-veg food. Any other yoga, conjunction or dasha can change this scenario completely.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 6th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, Mercury rules 6th & 9th houses and sits in 2nd house in Aquarius. This shows someone's daily work routine is to work with large organisations or large group of people which helps them make their money. In resolving disputes, they depend on their communications and scientific and innovative thinking. It means if they are in dispute, they won't hit the other person but they will prefer simply send a written complaint to an authority. Communications are going to be a huge part of their daily work routine.
Aries Ascendant - If it is Aries Ascendant, then Mercury rules 6th & 3rd house and sits in 2nd house in Taurus. This time it is all about money making mentality. As Virgo is sign of Accounting, Mercury is calculations and Taurus & 2nd house is wealth. So, these people are very much inclined towards serving in job setup and gaining wealth. Even if they go into solving disputes and serving people, their eye is always on how much it is going to benefit them as Virgo is sign of practicality.
Venus - Venus also can be 6th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Sagittarius Ascendant - If it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Venus rules 6th & 11th house and sits in 2nd house in Capricorn sign. Another position where person is happy in job setup and gaining wealth. As Venus also represents Service and Devotion, these people are very into serving others in needs. They have natural love towards animals and can serve pets. It shows their wealth is coming from serving and comforting others.
Taurus Ascendant - If it is Taurus Ascendant, Venus rules 6th & 1st house and sits in 2nd house in Gemini. Almost same things can be seen here with Venus being 6th lord. The only difference would be as per ascendant. Earlier was Sagittarius Ascendant, so service to mankind as a high morale value was more important there. Now as Taurus Ascendant, gaining wealth out of surgery is more important.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 6th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, Jupiter rules 6th & 9th house and sits in 2nd house in Leo Sign.This shows that person serves and uplifts the under privileged people with their knowledge and wisdom. They can be seen as religious, spiritual and motivational guides. This work gives them authority and wealth. They should be careful while taking loans. Good position for service of people through wisdom.
Libra Ascendant - If it is Libra Ascendant, Jupiter rules 3rd & 6th house and sits in 2nd house in Scorpio. It shows someone's family life going through a transformation. Other things can be like the earlier position of Jupiter. Wealth and Family life may suffer in early part of life.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 6th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 6th house lord, Saturn in 2nd house (for Leo/Virgo Ascendants respectively) 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. If Saturn is in Libra, where it is exalted, then things may be 5% better but not more than that. It shows that disputes, obstacles and loans are making family life stressful. This is one position which helps in 2nd half of life. 1st half would be very stressful. At the same time, these people would love to serve others in need. Service and Dedication is something they will always have.
Rahu - If Rahu is 6th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 2nd house in Libra then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Libra in 2nd house will transform Rahu as Venus as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. So, it will become much like Venus in 2nd house as discussed above but at the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Libra in 2nd house means these people seek ideal relationship and balance in family life. If they don't see finding it, they prefer not to marry rather than marrying halfheartedly. They will have an unusual family environment. Their wealth source will be foreign. Their daily routine work will be in large organisations, MNCs or large group of people.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 6th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 2nd house in Cancer 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 Cancer also shows someone not getting proper love from mother.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
