Now, what is the impact of having 2nd house lord sitting in 4th house?
Its generic interpretation is that person's wealth and assets are coming through the home environment, home land, private office setups and mother. This position also makes someone businessman, as wealth is coming from home environment. Now, in majority of cases you can earn from home only when you are running some sort of business from home or from a private office. With this position, person is very much limited within his family and home as both these houses are getting involved.
Now, results may be different due to aspect, conjunctions of other planets or the planet being Retrograde or Combust. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important. Moreover, now we also need to check the strength of 4th house lord as 2nd house lord is going in 4th house. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 2nd house Lord in 4th house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Cancer Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 2nd house with Leo sign and sits in the 4th house in Libra. It is debilitated there, specially if it s near real debilitation degree. In this case, person is unable to make any proper saving till mid-life as lord of savings is debilitated. It also gives troublesome relation with father. Mother takes up the role of Father but even with her conflicts are constant, but still mother tries best to provide. Person may not get a great support from people in authority but this position is good for creative careers. As Sun is in Libra and Libra is ruled by Venus and Sun & Venus both represent creativity.
Moon - So it is Gemini Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 2nd house with Cancer sign and sits in 4th house in Virgo. It shows that wealth and assets are coming from mother. Person works from home or private settings in a field which requires lots of details oriented work and analysis. Mother teaches how to be calculative and practical about wealth. This can also show someone who does teaching work from home and gain wealth.
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 4th house in Gemini sign. As Mars is a natural malefic planet and 4th house is last place it wants to be in, this shows a kind of troublesome relation with mother as some heated and aggressive communications is taking place between native and his mother. At the same time, it also shows that family wealth is coming from business and communication as actions/energy is going into sign of Gemini.
Libra Ascendant - Now if it is Libra Ascendant, Mars rules 2nd & 7th house and sits in 4th house in Capricorn sign. Now, this Mars is exalted. So, situations are balanced now in 4th house. Best thing attached with exalted Mars is that it knows when to fight and when not to fight and also how to fight? So, these people also may have heated exchanges with Mother but only when it is seriously necessary. With this position, person also becomes protector of home. Wealth may come from Business of Real State or work in Army/Police etc.
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 4th house in Leo. It shows a very creative salesman. Someone who is taking his family business forward with his excellent marketing and communicative skills. As Mercury is planet of skills and Leo is sign of Creativity, these people are very creative with Arts & Hobbies and can earn out of those.
Leo Ascendant - If it is Leo Ascendant, then Mercury rules 2nd & 11th house and sits in 4th house in Scorpio. If other things like Mahadasha and Karakas are satisfying then a great position to become an Astrologer. Mercury is Karaka of Astrology. Scorpio is sign of Occult and Secrets. 4th house is house of intuition and working from home/private office.
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 4th house in Cancer sign. Although not a friendly sign, but still Venus gets directional strength in 4th house. These people are creative under the boundaries of home. Means extra-ordinary interior designers and decorators are seen from this. They love to keep their home like a beautiful palace, no matter even if it is 1 room home. They also like to keep themselves beautiful and all members of family. A man with this position of Venus must feel himself very lucky.
Virgo Ascendant - If it is Virgo Ascendant, Venus rules 2nd & 9th house and sits in 4th house in Sagittarius. These people have love towards philosophy and higher learning. Again, a teacher can be seen from this who is teaching his great knowledge from home/private settings. They earn their family wealth through higher knowledge and teaching/preaching.
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 4th house in Aquarius Sign. This shows someone who is teacher/guide in home. Someone who likes to share his higher learning with his family and talks about working towards higher goals for the benefit of everyone in society. They are social reformers at home.
Aquarius Ascendant - If it is Aquarius Ascendant, Jupiter rules 2nd & 11th house and sits in 4th house in Taurus. Here person becomes real financial manager to family. They take the family assets and save for future benefits and grow those. Here Mother becomes Guru in both the cases. They also fill family environment with their divine wisdom. Real good finance managers.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 2nd house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 2nd house lord, Saturn in 4th house (for Sagittarius/Capricorn Ascendants respectively) shows that person had quite a disciplinarian type of mother. If Saturn is in Aries where it is debilitated, then things are even more disturbing. Person may be taken away from home or mother in this case or relation with mother is very distant. An apparent disconnect is there. These people have really hard time in saving money till they reach 30s. In some cases, they have to put real hard labor in earning money.
Rahu - If Rahu is 2nd house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 4th house then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Aries in 4th house means that person has very unusual environment at home. It also shows a burst of anger at times which might even lead to physical fights. It also shows someone who has home in foreign lands or someone who is raised by foster mother or someone who has no idea about who his mother was.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 2nd house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 4th house in Capricorn 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 they find disconnect from their mother. They feel that their mother was unfair to them. It generally takes person away from mother, home or homeland. Person should not take home or land in his name if he wants to stay in it. At the same time, this is placement of highly intuitive person. This is 1st of Moksha Margi placement of Ketu where soul finally gets liberation.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
