Chiron in the 2nd House

Natal Chiron in the 2nd house indicates emotional wounds connected with the native’s possessions. The second house represents the things we believe we own, and Chiron placed there can create inner fears and discontent connected to losses or lack of belongings.
Generally, asteroid Chiron is responsible for traumas and their healing; thus the house where it is placed is a rather sensitive area of the native’s life. In case that the asteroid is negatively aspected, especially by “malefics” such as Mars, Saturn or Pluto, the native may have experienced quite a lot of suffering in the life matters ruled by the house. On the other hand, a well-aspected Chiron indicates abilities to heal other people in such matters, as the native has learned quite a lot from his own experiences.

A person with his Chiron placed in the 2nd house might have difficult childhood experiences concerning what he believes that he owns. As a child, his family might be experiencing financial problems, having as an effect the development of insecurity to the child about the belongings of him and his family. Seeing the struggle of his parents, the child can even feel guilt and accuse himself of being a financial burden to the family. If Chiron is adversely aspected by Mars, Mercury or Neptune, the young native might have experienced his toys being stolen or himself being somehow swindled by other children.

A 2nd house Chiron person might receive a lot fewer presents and toys than the other children and feel that has fewer belongings than others. Other children may be mocking him, and this can create emotions of jealousy. As a result, the child strongly connects self-confidence with owning things of value; this pattern will follow him during his adult life and he will seek physical comforts and obtaining material wealth and objects in order to feel secure.

Of course, the severity of the emotional trauma largely depends on the aspects of natal planets. Squares, oppositions, and conjunctions with Mars, Saturn and Pluto indicate more difficult situations, while harmonious aspects with planets will actually teach the native how to develop his view on the matter of possessions and belongings.

Chiron in the 2nd house can bring disappointment to the native during periods of financial difficulties. He will worry a lot and feel rather depressive, searching for ways to restore his financial status. Yet, one of the most important lessons he will have to face is to stop valuing himself depending on his wallet or assets.

The 2nd house does not only indicate material possessions but also spiritual ones. In fact, the second house refers to everything that the native believes he owns, and his personal assets can be even ideas or people. Thus, for aiding his natal Chiron in his healing procedure, the individual must realize that his self-worth is an outcome of more parameters than he believes.

A good exercise to empower a 2nd house Chiron is to try relinquishing some possessions, especially when you struggle with lacking them. If you have less money, try to give some away to someone who has even less. The best way to energize Chiron is through symbolical demolition of the archetypes that cause pain. In the end, you will understand that these traumas are just leftovers of the past; they do not offer you anything precious but fear and stress.

If you have this placement, your path of transcending your traumas passes through valuing your inner belongings. In the end, this transformative healing experience can make you aid others who have similar problems. It will make you rather compassionate towards people experiencing financial trouble, and your common difficulties will urge you help in any way you can.
A curious pattern is that a 2nd house Chiron person is better in teaching other people about how to manage their finances than they can their own. Be wise enough to apply your great pieces of advice on your own self too, and you will figure out the way to heal your traumas!

Great! Thanks. I realise that my life as a healer, fraught with viscicitudes financially have been my path to freedom from the archetype of having money equalling personal value!!!

awesome cat

oh my gosh. my assumption of the way i feel hurt by owning less money was that my 2nd house was a Leo, so it reflects on my self esteem, but it was wrong. It surprises me how this is accurate, I stopped piano lesson because I blamed myself when I was young. And sometimes it’s too much on me, the way I feel hurt by what I believe mine or my financial status, and I completely relate to this. Thanks a lot.
