Having the Sun in the house of material possessions and wealth, makes the natal chart owner be strongly connected to his belongings. Indeed, the Sun is responsible for one’s personal shining, and depending on where it is placed in the native’s chart, it makes the life departments ruled by the placement very important for him.
Having some possessions brings to such a person pride, providing him security on which he can later build on. Especially in a man’s horoscope, the Sun in the 2nd house makes belongings really important for his self-esteem. In a woman’s chart, the effects are similar, although a little lighter. In addition, she might have the strong need to be proud of her father’s power and prosperity, as the Sun is representing the father in a chart.
The Sun fixed in the Second house definitely helps with finances. A lot of money will channel through the native’s hands, as would a Jupiter or a Venus bring also. Nevertheless, the Sun is not only an attractor of wealth as the other two, but also a big spender. It radiates from the second house, tending to shine on other celestial bodies connected with aspects and located in other houses, empowering those houses’ issues. By observing with which planets the Sun is in aspect, the native can see which areas of life will both bring and demand flows of wealth, and a careful look at them can make them more careful in how they structure their expenses.
Natives with the Sun in the 2nd house tend to over-identify what they are, with what they have. This can lead to a life of seeking constant material growth, without paying the necessary attention to the spiritual one. This can, in particular, be noted when a stellium of more planets is present in the house; the person can become a pure materialist, dedicating a large part of his time in obtaining riches and power. If the stellium is in Scorpio, this urge for material possession blends with jealousy towards others. The presence of other adverse aspects can make the way they obtain them quite dubious, hidden or immoral.
In case such a native develops his own morality and value system, the positive attributes of the Sun will grant him even more self-sufficiency. A pattern frequently observed is that a second house Sun person is a very stable friend, granting help to close persons when needed, most usually financial or material. Their friends are also seen as possessions by them, and their natural need of maintaining them can actually be of great help to the friends themselves.
Natives with the Sun in the 2nd house can be obsessed with collecting things. These objects could be both of value and of beauty. Venus being near the natal Sun would definitely pull the chart owner to beautiful antiques, decorative objects and other collectibles that would please both his eyes, and be an investment in wealth. In case that Libra is on the house’s cusp, the possibility of chasing and obtaining beauty and art objects is really high.
An issue that the native with the Sun in the 2nd house might have is to deal with is possessiveness, as he uses everything he owns or feels that he owns for creating his identity. When a material object, a person or something else considered a possession seizes to exist, the native can experience difficulties in restructuring his self-esteem. He instead should concentrate on using his resources with respect and constructively, valuing them and understanding that instead of filling emotional voids, he can use them for reaching higher personal levels. They are a blessing and, when used correctly, can bestow further light both on him and the people near him.
Search for transiting triangles from Jupiter or other slow moving planets to understand when the Sun is about to be positively activated. Usually, such periods bring a rise in one’s assets, while other natural outcomes are spending a lot more in good food, clothes, and well-living. Of course, it can at the same time boost arrogance and pride. A trine transit from Pluto can drastically change the chart owner’s financial situation forever, raising both his assets and status. The opposite could be created with a square, although in both cases, other connections to bodies must also be counted. The ruler of the second house and his condition are very important, as they will define the scale in which the wealth calibrations will be applied. If it is Jupiter or Venus, the native will have luck pushing him even more in his financial affairs.
The Sun in the 2nd house can give a tendency to the native of leaving his studies incomplete. This can be connected with no real need of receiving education, because their wealth is either already present thanks to their parents, or their money is generated through means that do not involve a lot of intellectual work.
The native’s father could be a great financial support to the native, literally building for him both his property and his career. The children born under such placements are often used to having everything they need, becoming spoiled and taking belongings as granted. This is not negative necessarily; such kind of people can have a very prosperous childhood without any kind of financial problems in the family. The father might be over-concerned with wealth, passing the same attitude to the child, but if the aspects of other planets are positive then the native will rather benefit from both the father’s approach to wealth and his own.
