So first of all, let's see what 2nd house represent -
2nd house represents Family, Wealth, Speech, Family Lineage, Values, Mouth, Face, Throat, food you like to eat, Assets etc.
Now, what does it mean to have 2nd house lord sitting in 2nd house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 2nd house of your horoscope is sitting in the 2nd house itself
Now, what is the impact of having 2nd house lord sitting in 2nd house?
1st of all any planet that is sitting in its own sign is actually the strongest. It is even stronger than exalted planet and the reason is that everyone feels most safe at his own home. So, a planet sitting in its own sign feels like he is at his home and also strengthens the house it is sitting in. Its generic interpretation is that person becomes kind of guard for his family and wealth. This person feels most safe in family environment and values. Family is real wealth from him. His life values come from Families. Basically, this is a person devoted to family. Also, this is one of the strong Dhana Yogas.
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.
So, let's see how different planets will behave differently as 2nd house Lord in 2nd house.
Sun - Suppose it is a Cancer Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 2nd house with Leo sign and sits in the 2nd house. It shows someone who takes lots of pride and ego from family. They are really proud of their family lineage. People in family or especially Father was either in Government Job or in any position of authority. At the same time, as Sun burns the house it is in, these people may waste their wealth in showing it off to people to boost their ego.
Moon - So it is Gemini Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 2nd house with Cancer sign and sits in 2nd house itself. This time mother takes the center-stage in family. These people are emotionally involved with family and its assets. They can give away all their wealth for the family cause. They can appoint their mother or motherly figure as their wealth manager. They have a very emotional way of talking. They can do well in singing too. But overall, life and family revolves around mother.
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 2nd house in Aries sign. Although this person likes to guard and hold to family and its assets but this person doesn't know how to grow wealth, because Mars doesn't keep that mindset. As Mars is a natural malefic planet, it shows someone who sees lots of fights and arguments in family over wealth.
Libra Ascendant - Now if it is Libra Ascendant, Mars rules 2nd & 7th house and sits in 2nd house in Scorpio sign. Here, Mars really takes the role of protector as Scorpio is sign of protection/control. It shows that wealth came in family after lots of efforts and turbulent circumstances and that's why person doesn't want to lose it again. In both the cases, person or anyone in family is from Army/Police or like background. In both the cases, will power is very strong to earn, gain & hoard for family.
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 2nd house in Gemini. It shows someone who is very calculative and business-minded with family and assets related matter. They are very clever and quick to decide that who should get what in family. Clearly shows someone who may be in family business or someone who earns through communications.
Leo Ascendant - If it is Leo Ascendant, then Mercury rules 2nd & 11th house and sits in 2nd house in Virgo, only position where planet is exalted and in own sign together. As Virgo is sign of details and analysis, this shows a person who is perfectionist about family and wealth related matters. They can be working as accountant or auditor and from there, they receive wealth. They are very good in keeping records and details about wealth, so they can be smart money managers.
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 2nd house in Taurus sign. This is a real good position for wealth. Planet of Wealth, in house of Wealth and in sign of Wealth :). These are the people who desire for the real luxurious and lavish life. They want the best in everything. They also hoard their wealth very well as Taurus is sign of hoarding wealth. They can be doing great in finance related family business. They can also do well in any business related with Gems, Jewelries and like things.
Virgo Ascendant - If it is Virgo Ascendant, Venus rules 2nd & 9th house and sits in 2nd house in Libra. More or less it remains the same situation as the previous one. Here person becomes passionate about relationships and will do anything to protect that. It also shows that wealth is coming from a family business.
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 2nd house in Sagittarius Sign. It shows that family environment was filled with religious teaching and divine knowledge. What they really value is religion, morals and higher learning. Family worked like Guru for the person and instilled all the religious teachings. At the same time, person is highly involved in finance field, either in job or in business.
Aquarius Ascendant - If it is Aquarius Ascendant, Jupiter rules 2nd & 11th house and sits in 2nd house in Pisces. This time religious teachings are replaced by spiritual teachings. Family environment is spiritual and person's values are developed by following some Spiritual Guru. Here again, family works like a teacher for person. There is some Guru like figure in family.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 2nd house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 2nd house lord, Saturn in 2nd house (for Sagittarius/Capricorn Ascendants respectively) shows that lots of hard work and labor is involved in earning wealth for family. As Saturn remains as is in its impact no matter where it is, it shows that the person had to see limited assets/wealth/values in early life. It also shows that person had limited company of family due to various reasons. It shows that wealth came after lots of hard work and hence person becomes aware of the importance of wealth in life. Saturn in Aquarius makes it 5% easier, but nothing more than that. It also shows someone who is working for long hours in MNCs.
Rahu - If Rahu is 2nd house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 2nd house then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Aquarius in 2nd house actually shows that wealth is coming into family through foreign resources. Person is working for Foreign Companies and earning money. It also shows that family environment during early childhood was a weird one and person always felt that others don't have such environment in their family.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 2nd house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 2nd house 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 family for various reasons. If not physically, then person feels that he is mentally isolated from his family. He is unable to understand them or they are not able to understand him. This person is better-off living away from family. This position gives lots of interest and ability in occult. Family has gone through turbulent and transformative situations.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
