The 2nd House in Astrology

The 2nd House doesn’t describe how other people view you or your ego. Traditionally, the 2nd House is called the House of Money.

This title is oversimplified, however.

The 2nd House does cover the parts of your life that deal with your finances and material things but also indicates how your paycheck and belongings make you feel, or how your ability to make money or provide affects how you feel about yourself.

Second House Meaning:

  • Making money
  • Financial security
  • Self Esteem
  • Possessions
  • Spending habits

Challenges for 2nd House Virgo

  1. Perfectionism: Seeking perfection can create a tough situation where you are always able to see your flaws and struggle to feel good enough. With a Virgo 2nd House, this could come through as feeling like a failure if you don’t feel as though you have perfected your financial situation enough, or if you make a mistake in money matters. This has the potential to affect one’s sense of self-worth.
  2. Money stress: Because they are always seeking and working toward improvement, it may be hard for Virgo to ever feel relaxed about their finances. This could cause a lot of anxious feelings as not everything in the finance world is in your control.
  3. Never satisfied with what they have: Virgo is designed to see flaws. With a Virgo 2nd House placement, that could mean that you struggle to be satisfied with your purchases and belongings. Instead of a gorgeous, plush armchair, you may see just see the small tear in the fabric on a corner that no one else may even notice. There may be a lot of buyer’s remorse, returns, or simply feeling as though what you have is never really good enough.
  4. Workaholic: Very driven, Virgo is capable of working themselves ragged. Because the 2nd House is focused on wealth, belongings, and how someone feels about their own worth, with Virgo placed here one could find themselves working unhealthy amounts in order to pursue that perfect lifestyle that they see in their head but feel like they can never quite achieve.
  5. Overly cautious: Being exacting and precise can be incredible assets, especially when it comes to making money. But, with a Virgo 2nd House, there is also the possibility to be overly cautious and too risk-averse. Scared to make a mistake, you may be frozen when it comes to making changes in money matters. However, sometimes a little risk can be good. It can be a tough balance to strike, especially for Virgo.
