Planets in the 2nd House ♡ Self-Worth


In my last blogpost I explained the 2nd house in general and gave some inspiration on what I have found self-worth really is about, what astrology has taught me about it.


Planets in the second house are made insecure and we have to learn to “own” these parts within ourselves. They are tools and helpers for discovering self-worth, because once we can own this part and accept it, we have made peace with ourselves and found worth in us. These planets are the resources which help us find a sense of value and worth.
The second house shows what we treasure and planets in this house are therefore crucial determiners for whether we feel we are valuable or not, depending on whether we do or don't own the traits associated with the planet. Planets in this house control our inherent sense of worthiness and richness and therefore make us very vulnerable, because they can easily be attacked. We have to realize these planets as parts in ourselves as not to be shaken from outside - we can often feel like we are the opposite of this planet out of insecurity.

This placement is also connected to how we were nurtured practically and materially in early childhood and influences our relationship to food and our eating habits. Furthermore, it affects our finances and spending habits, because the 2nd house shows what we feel we own or what we feel we're worth.




If you don’t have any planets in the second house, you can look at the ruling planet of the sign that is at the cusp of your 2nd house. For example, if your second house is in Sagittarius, look at Jupiter, and so on.
