Let’s find out!

The Zodiac Sign of Sagittarius

Sagittarius is a sign of the Zodiac that is looking for deeper meaning everywhere it looks.

This is a sign that thrives on new experiences. Sagittarius needs to encounter and experience as many different ways of living, spiritual beliefs, and philosophies as it can so that it can constantly add to and edit its own idea of the meaning of life.

Travel and adventures may be one way to be exposed to new and different ideas, and so is education.

Sagittarius is a carefree, optimistic, and free-spirited Zodiac sign that wants to do and see as much as it possibly can as quickly as it can. There is no sitting still for Sagittarius!

Some of Sagittarius’ personality traits:

  • Enthusiastic
  • Open-minded
  • Joyful
  • Independent
  • Resilient

But, for the purposes of this article, we need to keep Sagittarius in the context of the 2nd House.

The 2nd House in Astrology

The 2nd House isn’t going to point to the way others perceive you, or even how you would describe yourself. Traditionally, the 2nd House is labeled the House of Money.

Sure, this house does cover the territory in your life that revolves around earning and spending money and your belongings, but this isn’t all there is to it.

The 2nd House also outlines the way you view your finances and possessions in relation to your self-worth or self-esteem.

Second House Meaning:

  • Making money
  • Financial security
  • Self-Esteem
  • Material possessions
  • Spending habits

Sagittarius 2nd House Meaning

With a Sagittarius 2nd House, this may affect how you view your possessions and finances in a way that makes you see money as something you can trade for time to have more adventures or joy.

Sagittarius in your 2nd House may influence you to have a philosophical view of money and the things money can buy.

You may not be someone who easily gets their sense of self-worth mixed up with how big their bank account is and you may not fixate on the size of your paycheck as long as you can provide for yourself and your loved ones.

What may really drive you is the hope for financial independence where you would be the steward of your own time. Sagittarius loves its freedom.

There is a chance with a Sagittarius 2nd House placement that you like to learn about money or teach others about it as well. This may not look like learning about balance sheets or technical economics, but rather theory and philosophy in relation to finance.

Sagittarius can be incredibly optimistic and confident, and in your 2nd House, you may never be worried about your financial future as you figure it will all work out in the end. You know you’ll figure it out, so you may not see a need to worry.

This also may inspire you to be very generous with your possessions and money because you may not have an innate fear of financial insecurity and figure you can always just make more if you need it.

This sense of optimism for the future isn’t totally unfounded, however.

A Sagittarius 2nd House is a placement that may not want for anything. You may be generally happy with what you have and at the same time, financial opportunities or resources may seem to just fall into your lap right when they need them.

Sagittarius 2nd House Strengths

  1. Strong convictions: No one is going to define financial success for Sagittarius except for Sagittarius! With a Sagittarius 2nd House, the idea of financial prosperity may not look the same to you as it does to other people. It may not be measured by how many digits are in your bank balance. Your currency of success may not be dollars and cents.
  2. Comfortable taking risks: Sagittarius in the 2nd may bring with it optimism about your financial future that won’t quit. Because of this, making higher-risk investments may not shake you that much.
  3. Resilient: Confidence comes with the Sagittarius’ territory, and with the sign in your 2nd House, even if you hit some hard times financially you may hop right back up again, just as sure of yourself as you were before. Sagittarius is so eager to try new things that it is bound to fail from time to time, so built-in resilience is helpful!
  4. Inspires others: Sagittarius is a natural-born leader and its sense of hope can inspire others. With a Sagittarius 2nd House, you may earn money or use your resources in a way that aspires to make the world a better place.
  5. Has faith: Philosophical, idealistic, and spiritual, Sagittarius knows that there is so much more to life than we have found yet and it has an unshakable faith. With a Sagittarius 2nd House placement, this may apply to your financial outlook. You may not feel the need to expend energy worrying because deep down you always have a spiritual safety net that will make sure you keep your lights on and your pantry from being empty.

Sagittarius 2nd House Weaknesses

  1. Impulsive with money: Sagittarius’ unshakable faith may lead to impulse spending or reckless investing when it is in the 2nd house. If you believe money will come when you need it, it may be easier to let it go.
  2. Connects finances and religious worthiness: There isn’t as much of a predisposition for Sagittarius to tie up its feelings of self-worth in the size of its paycheck. But, if Sagittarius in the 2nd is going to fall into any trap of this sort it may be the idea that the size of its paycheck is determined by its religious worthiness. Sagittarius can be very idealistic and spiritual, but when this is taken too far could lead to confusing righteousness for richness.
  3. Justifies frivolous buying: Because of its tendency to have an overidealized view of themselves that can come out as hypocrisy, Sagittarius in the 2nd House may make unwise purchases that they justify with some kind of excuse.
  4. Misplaced optimism: Optimism is a wonderful trait to have, but with a Sagittarius 2nd House this can be taken too far and lead to sticking your head in the sand and pretending that your financial problems don’t exist. Confidence taken too far with finances could look like avoiding it altogether which could lead to any number of money problems.
  5. Too financially independent: Sagittarius is fiercely independent and prizes its personal freedom. With a Sagittarius 2nd House, this could lead to not accepting help from others when you need it.

What else could influence a Sagittarius 2nd House?

There is much more detail that can be added to your Sagittarius 2nd House reading, including the position of Sagittarius’ planetary ruler and other planets sitting in the house.

Sagittarius’ Planetary Ruler: Jupiter

Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius.

With a Sagittarius 2nd House placement, the position of Jupiter is going to add more detail to how Sagittarius is expressed when it comes to your relationship with your resources.

Find Jupiter in your birth chart and check what sign of the Zodiac it sits in. This sign will add more “flavor” to how you experience your 2nd House.

For instance, if Jupiter is in Aquarius, this may magnify your desire for financial independence and could heighten an already idealistic or philosophical view of money and resources.

Jupiter in Capricorn? This may slow your roll when it comes to how freewheeling you may be with your money matters. Capricorn may temper your impulsive and carefree attitude about your finances and bring a little more responsibility and planning.

Planets in the 2nd House

Planets that inhabit your 2nd House will also help shape it and will add more dimension.

With Venus in your 2nd House, for instance, you may be more willing to spend money on pure luxury and comfort items. Or, this could come out as a desire to spoil your loved ones and shower them with gifts to show them how much you care.

The Moon in your 2nd House? You may have a much more emotional take on your financial situation and property than you would otherwise. There is also more of a chance that you tie your sense of well-being to how healthy your bank account is.

Please keep in mind that these are all very general descriptions and only a small sampling of the ways that Sagittarius can affect your 2nd house.

But, a Sagittarius 2nd House placement will nevertheless influence the relationship of your resources and sense of self-worth in a meaningful way.
