Natal Saturn in the 2nd House

Usually, wherever Saturn is located in a natal chart signifies a problematic life area, as the ringed planet is considered a malefic. Does this general rule apply, though, when Saturn is placed in the house of material possessions and wealth? The truth is somewhere in the middle. When Saturn is located in the 2nd house, its behavior is strongly connected to the aspects that it forms with other planets, while also to the sign in which it resides. Even though it is considered a rather restrictive planet, if it is placed in Libra, Scorpio, Capricorn or Aquarius he tends to reveal his positive traits. The same applies when he forms good natal aspects to planets; a supportive Jupiter or Venus might even turn him into a benefic.

This planet in 2nd house generally indicates a certain realism, foresight, and prudence in financial and material matters. This area is something serious and therefore it is important to find a form of security there often, because there can be a fear of “missing out”. The aspects will show how this basic meaning is lived, because being badly aspected, this lack can be frustrating, with therefore a difficulty in balancing and stabilizing things. With good aspects there is more realism, calculation, not with the aim of amassing a lot of money, but above all of using it well.

The good aspects of Pluto will give moral strength and combativeness in the face of difficulties, those of Neptune a certain intuition, those of Uranus the ability to stabilize any change, those of Jupiter the ability to organize and manage, those of Mars the sense of initiative, those of Venus the balance between desires and reality, those of Mercury of order, logic and lucidity, those of the Moon of foresight especially in real estate, those of the Sun of stability, seriousness, and ambition.

The negative aspects of Pluto may call into question stability, those of Neptune the risk of letting oneself be influenced, those of Uranus a difficulty in balancing, those of Jupiter a difficulty in managing and a discrepancy between desires and reality, those of Mars a lack of adaptation, those of Venus a latent frustration, those of Mercury also a lack of adaptation, those of the Moon dissatisfaction, those of the Sun a risk of obstacles and constraints.

As always, it is necessary to make the synthesis of the aspects to Saturn taking into account the sign of Saturn and that of the 2nd house which is the backdrop of the way in which this domain is experienced.
