South Node in the 2nd house

Being born with the South Node in the 2nd house indicates that the native should change his attitude towards his money and belongings. The second house is ruling ownership, thus the South Node prompts the individual to break patterns that he developed in previous lives concerning this subject. As the Lunar Nodes are always opposing each other, a 2nd house South Node gives an 8th house North node.

A person with the South Node in the 2nd house feels quite comfortable when he accumulates wealth, which is echoing from previous lifetimes. In his last incarnations, he was probably a rather rich person, and this tendency will reappear in his current one. From his young ages, he will like to own things, and will probably be a rather greedy child concerning belongings. This will be creating a shield of safety around him, as the soul tries to establish common surroundings as the ones it can remember from the previous life. This can be particularly noticed in people whose 2nd house also contains vital planets, powerful by sign or strongly aspected by other planets and points.

In case that those planets are Jupiter, Venus or Pluto, the native will be lucky enough to be having the desired wealth and possessions – most of the times from his childhood. But, the karmic road is dictated by the position of the North Node, and such a person will have to reevaluate his perception considering his belongings. Therefore, such a native will have to fight harder within his own mind, as someone does not easily relinquish easy money from his daily reality. It takes strength and courage to choose walking the difficult road.

In case you have South Node in the 2nd house, take some time to examine your past and current financial relationships. You will definitely discover that one of the reasons you did not indulge in deep partnerships is the financial independence that you like. You prefer keeping your belongings for yourself than sharing them with souls you merge with. This way, you may hide under the carpet your fears of creating a deeper spiritual relationship with another human being, and of losing control over yourself.

When the native with the South Node in the 2nd house manages to successfully activate his North Node in the 8th house, this will open the gates to experience healthier views on financial matters and will lower egoism. The individual who breaks this border will be also rewarded through expansion of all 8th house matters. His sexual life will take a new turn, as he will be also able to unite sexually with another human being. By relinquishing the walls of possessions between them, their sexual energy will be also flowing as if in communicating vessels.

We could say that from the moment the North Node is fully activated, the native can start safely using his South Node powers again. Of course, this can be reached only when time and experience have proved to the native himself that he knows how to deal with his issues about possessions. At such a moment, even a person whose South Node conjuncts “malefics” can hope for harmonious 2nd house functions.
Generally, in case someone has his South Node in conjunction with “malefics” such as Mars, Saturn or even Uranus, he should consider a rapid change. His views on belongings may be the poison that does not allow him to progress. By feeding those “malefics” through the South Node, he is just empowering his failures concerning 2nd house matters. This may generate bad luck and a general discomfort, while he can be trying for a long time to become richer without ever meeting his goals. Unfortunately, by continuing such practices he can only degrade his life to a materialistic existence. The only way to escape such a fate is embracing a more spiritual life, which in turn will lead to successes even on a financial level.

Of course, this does not mean that everyone who has the South Node in the 2nd house, is of a problematic nature. It simply shows tendencies that are deeply rooted inside us, habits that are running in the core of our existence through memories that haven’t been erased and formatted during the passage between incarnations.

We should hereby note that the South Node is debilitating the power of any planet that it conjuncts, and this can even be quite helpful. Malefic planets are still remaining tough to bear, yet they are losing quite a lot of their potency. Of course, benefic planets are also operating less powerfully. Imagine the South Node as a gravitational hole, sucking energy from the nearby planets- no matter what type. The South Node is the entropy, leading the system of your own self towards stability and eventually decay. On the other hand, pursuing the path that your North Node dictates is literally allowing fresh energy flow to your system, negative entropy that protects your soul from getting stuck in stability (even if it’s the type that you enjoy).
Learn to leave back your South Node and embrace the lessons that the opposite house has to offer. Yes, you will leave quite a lot of things behind. But it is the only way to make yourself rise as a conscious human being, a person who holds his fate in his own hands.

I’m a south node in the 2nd conjunct Saturn in Scorpio. I’ve tried to understand this and adhere to it but I’m so confused as to what I’m supposed to do. I won’t go into a relationship now because I don’t have any resources, anything to offer. I’ve tried so hard to become self sufficient before pursuing a relationship. Is this where I’m messing up? Should look for love before I build myself? This is frustrating.


We have the same south node but mie is conjunct with mars. My understanding is that you turn your focus from trying to make yourself financially secure into sharing what you have. In that way, situations will become easier for you.
