The Second Solar House – Stability & Security
The Second Solar House
The 2nd house is the arena of material security.
You are likely to seek emotional and material security through a practical approach to your world. You may seek career outcomes that offer certain financial security, stability and growth. You may enjoy working with finances, or in established professional roles. Your challenge is to learn to trust the flow of resources available to you, and learn to let go of, or share, what you have gained. You may also be motivated to enjoy and appreciate the body. The body is your primary resource. In time, you are able to teach others how to generate their own resources and create security in their own lives.
The Second House is primarily concerned with personal resources. This area of the chart describes what you value and will draw upon as you make your way through life. Whether these resources are physical, financial, emotional or psychological, you are learning to value what you own. With the Sun in this house, your need to establish and maintain material security is profound, as your emotional self-worth is intrinsically linked to the resources you have available to you.
This is not the same as being “materialistic”. Your desire to maintain security does not rise from the urge to impress or compete with others. Instead, there is likely to be an underlying sense that a solid basis for personal expression comes from creating self-sufficiency. Financial independence is crucial for self-worth. You may find you need to learn to create your own security, rather than relying on others to provide it for you. Personal power, and an ensuing sense of self-respect, comes from learning to acquire adequate possessions with which to manage your material world. The need to establish your security is a perfectly valid one. You need to take responsibility for your own needs, and the needs of those you care for, as a way to feel emotionally secure.
If you were born with the Sun in the Second House, your mission is to take concerted steps toward creating your own security. You are likely to find that through establishing material foundations, and then sharing these with others, you gain in terms of inner value and self-worth. You demonstrate the real benefit of security by developing inner stability. Over time, as you share what you have gained, you find the joy of generosity. You can give back to others by helping them create the resources they need for a similar level of structure in their lives.
