2nd House in astrology, astrology, Houses!

2nd house

The 2nd house is the first succedent house. This house is about maintaining and rooting the energy from the first house in the material world. The natural sign, element, and modality for the second house are, to start Taurus which is a feminine sign ruled by Venus. The natural element of the second house is earth, and the modality associated with the 2nd house is fixed.

With this house being naturally Venus ruled think pleasure, think values, harmony, and beauty. Then, use that those words and apply them to what you can taste touch see and smell. This Venusian house rules over your money how you get and preserve things of value for you. It is good to know Venus doesn’t have emotions, Venus here and in her other house is purely black and white, practical, hedonistic, and unmoving.

As the first earth house is about maintaining, improving, and enriching your personal earthly reality. Planets here attribute to how you go about doing so I will give a brief run through of the personal planets in the second house. With the sun here your ego focus on material reality. Material stability, riches, sensuality, and you can be prone to hedonism the Sun in the second house acts a bit like a Taurus Sun. Also, someone with a Sun in the second house can be like someone with Sun conjunct Venus they could be beautiful or attracted to Venusian careers and lifestyles.

The Moon in the second house has an earth tint to it. The moon here is also like a Moon/Venus conjunction where there are constant ebbs and flows concerning 2nd house thing i.e., what your value, or getting money. Your inner world and emotions are connected to your material reality. You are also slow to change emotionally because of the earthiness of this house.

Mercury in the 2nd house shows someone who can more easily gain skills and acquire knowledge with money, things of value, gaining possessions, etc. Mercury in the second makes pretty good business people as far as getting and maintaining material stability and wealth. This is also kin to having Mercury conjunct Venus. You may have a nice singing voice or can earn income via writing, acting, using your voice and having a podcast or something of the like. Mercury in this house makes one curious when it comes to exploring all that this house has to offer.

Venus in the second house makes someone who is natural with access to quality possessions and maintaining personal values. The only thing to watch for going off the deep end with the sensual aspects of life.

Mars in the Second house something that could cause problems. Mars is an aggressive go-getter. When it comes to money, you should be an aggressive go-getter or keep ing it could be like a fight you are always trying to win. So take the initiative to learn about what you truly value, how money and material assets work. Though, sensually this is a magnetic pair. Mars in the Second is like having Mar/Venus conjunction.

The second house is essential to living. If you don’t have planets here doesn’t mean you can ignore your second house. Learn about the location of the second house lord by finding the sign in that house. What you value and having a sense of stability is how you can develop spiritually. Don’t listen to those who say the material plane is not needed. If it weren’t needed you would not be here. The material and spiritual are one and the same. Take care and love yourself. Know your value and worth. Be as stubborn as a bull and refuse to move against what you value.


astrology, Zodiac 1.0

Taurus 1.0

Okie Dokie. Now for Taurus. Taurus is the bull. A bull with a woman dancing on its back as a show of strength and grace. The time period for Taurus is April 20th to May 21st. They are the first earth sign, and the first fixed sign. The ruling planet of Taurus is Venus. When you look at the characteristics of Taurus you are looking at the feminine principle of Venus. Venus has masculine and feminine qualities like all the planets. Its male aspect is Libra. To understand this sign more you have to look at the house it comes from and the goddess that gives it it’s qualities. Taurus is from the second house of possessions and material values we own. This house governs how we attract those things. The Goddesses to look at for Taurus is, traditionally, Aphrodite and Venus. There is not enough raw material on her as there was for the god Ares. I think it is because we know that Venus is materialistic, sexual and attractive. Aphrodite is the Greek Goddess of love, fortune, sexuality, and beauty. She is the beautiful feminine know for her mischief (this is better for Libra) and desires. Taurus take the practical and materialistic aspect of Venus. They personify her indulgence of physical/earthly pleasures. They enjoy everything that says luxury and comfort. The best word for Taurus is hedonist. The lazy hedonist if you want to be more exact.

Then, there is the earth aspect of Taurus. The Earth element takes on three aspects through the zodiac. Earth presents its self through Taurus as steadfast, consistent, and practical.  Though Taurus is reliable they tend to enjoy leisure more than normal. As the first fixed sign of the zodiac Taurus sets the lazy and stubborn tone for all the other fixed signs. It is also hard to get a Taurus to move on a decision  they have set there mind to just like it is hard to get this sign to move any faster than their current pace-they just will not do it. in fact they move slower if that is possible. The bull is normally emotionally self-centered. Yet, they are creative people able to see intrinsic beauty in the things around the- notice I said things not people.  Though there can be a touch of fire when it comes to how they feel, you will never see it on the surface. Though because emotions aren’t practical (aannnnddd you can’t make them be) they can’t keep their emotions under wrap forever. This is usually when Taurus explodes violently. I’m mean violently. From what I’ve seen it is worst than Aries. This is mainly because the temper is under pressure. For a gloss over on relationships this sign is about ownership when it comes to there partner- you are their property . They are sensual lovers and tend, if they don’t have a crap ton of Aries or Gemini placements, to take their time with pleasure. They enjoy stability in relationships so don’t play around on them or try to make them jealous. If you do try, you will get no where with this sign. Career-wise, it will benefit Taurus greatly if they network with people, all type of people in the career world.  Taurus can land the job the always hoped and dreamed for if they put their mind to it. Oddly enough Taurus would be useful in the sciences given their 10th house is Aquarius. Something to think about.  Any Whoville… Oh, something to add the phrase for Taurus is I have.

So, I’m ending this here…
