The 2nd House: Self-Value

The 2nd House resides in the Northeast hemisphere of a natal chart, together with the 1st house and the 3rd house, this part of the natal chart is the Quadrant 1, symbolising self-development.

Also known as the House of Value or the House of Possession, the 2nd house is a natural Taurus house and it is ruled by Venus. This house is all about personal finance, self-worth, material possession and debt. The sign of the house shows the style you handle this kind of thing and the planets in the house show additional planetary influences to this area of your life and indicate what you value the most.

Depending on the house system you use, you may have two zodiac signs occupying the house at the same time, in this case, we will look at the sign that is on the cusp (the start of the house, usually left-hand side) of the house.
