Moon in 2nd house


Life has a certain depth as long as you are living your life with certain principals, certain ethics, certain values. Second house moon is much focused on living with awareness. That is why Jupiter feels very comfortable in this house. Because second house is the house that signify values, traditions, and family lineage.

Moon in second house brings the feeling of being proud of one’s family lineage. These natives are the ones who staunchly believe that BLOOD is THICKER than water – meaning they will always give importance to the member of their family than to an outsider. These natives are very much a family person. To them – FAMILY COMES FIRST.

The most significant attribute of second house moon is the tendency of accumulating. They just love to accumulate – whether it is money, jeweler, or certain antique collections – but the nature of accumulating exists. If other planets in the birth chart are supportive then this nature of accumulation leads to a good fat bank balance. However if the second house lord is weak then SAVING ACCOUNT of these natives is always fluctuating – if today they have a good bank balance then tomorrow they may have a zero bank balance – fluctuation in savings is often seen with this placement.

Moon in second house generally gives a beautiful attractive face – just like the Poornima Moon – Full Moon. The Moon on the day of Poornima looks so beautiful – so full – so attractive.

It is said that Buddha was born on Full Moon day, Buddha attained enlightenment on Full Moon day and Buddha left his body on Full Moon Day!

Full Moon day is a very auspicious day – and the person with Moon in second house – also is auspicious. It is said that certain people have a certain auspiciousness around their face.

A woman having this placement is definitely beautiful and has the ‘face power’ to attract others towards her. Like a magnet she attracts others because of her facial beauty.

Moon in the first house i.e. in the Ascendant gives a beautiful physical body – whereas Moon in second house gives a beautiful face. Especially if Moon is with Venus in second house – then the woman is really a beauty – a charm – a diva!

This placement makes the person talkative by nature. They like to talk a lot. They are good when it comes to participating in group discussions or in any conversation as such. They are good speakers as well as good writers. They are inclined towards philosophical discussions.

2nd house moon gives a strong inclination towards following certain ethics, principles. These natives give much importance to living ethical life. VALUES means a lot to them. Reminds me of the great British Prime Minister – Winston Churchill – even though Hitler continued to bomb over England and hundred of Britishers were dying sill this man was NOT willing to GIVE UP. He was not willing to surrender.

Winston Churchill was a man of substance and of a great character. His focus on following certain values and principles.

Winston Churchill is widely considered as one of the 20th century’s most significant figures. Churchill remains popular in the UK and Western world, where he is seen as a victorious wartime leader who played an important role in defending Europe’s liberal democracy against the spread of fascism. He is also praised as a social reformer. A quick look at Winston Churchill’s birth chart:

As you can see – Moon is placed in the second house in Purva Phalguni Nakshatra. His moon sign was Leo and lived like a lion.

Winston Churchill became the Prime Minister of England on 10th May 1940 – a time when the Second World War was going on. His first speech as Prime Minister was as follows:

I would say to the House… that I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat. We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. You ask, what is our policy? I will say: it is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us; to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: it is victory, victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival.

Moon in second house – especially in a DHARMA Sign such as Leo , Sagittarius or Aries – gives birth to a man of conviction. Winston Churchill himself quotes on the significance of being a man of conviction:

Jiddu Krishnamurti was also a man of conviction. A great philosopher, writer and speaker – he is regarded as one of the greatest spiritual dignitary. Here is a quick look at Jiddu Krishnamurti’s birth chart:

As you can see – his moon is placed in second house – Moola Nakshatra (Sagittarius sign). Moola is a highly spiritual Nakshatra which takes great interest in the philosophy of life.

Second house moon in an evolved soul is a great placement however in a shallow man’s birth chart – this placement makes the native very much money-minded. He or she is too much focused on money, money and only money.

The placement of moon in second house in a shallow person’s chart signify that he is much attached to money. And when you get attached to MONEY – you block your self-growth.

“A man who is too greedy about money, by and by starts having the qualities of money. He becomes just money. He loses spirituality, he is no more a spirit. He is reduced to a thing. If you love money, you will become like money. If you love your house, by and by you will become material. Whatsoever you love, you become. Love is alchemical. Never love the wrong thing, because it will transform you. Nothing is so transforming as love. Love something which can raise you higher, to higher altitudes. Love something beyond you.” – Osho

The NEGATIVE aspect of this placement – especially in a shallow man’s chart is that the man with this placement often is deprived of love – and so he goes on accumulating money – because after love – if there is anything that can make him feel secured than it is money! And so to such a native – money becomes a substitute to love and so he continues to accumulate money.

Always remember – A CREATIVE PERSON IS NEVER BEHIND MONEY. HE CANNOT POSSESS MONEY – because the moment he possesses money – he loses himself – he is not in touch with his SELF. One who is in connected with his own self – is called SWAMI.

“A creative person possesses his own being; he is a master. That’s why in the East we have been calling sannyasins ‘swamis’. ‘Swami’ means a master. Beggars have been called swamis — masters. Emperors we have known, but they proved in the final account, in the final conclusion of their lives, that they were beggars. A man who is after money and power and prestige is a beggar, because he continuously begs. He has nothing to give to the world.” – Osho

Somebody asked “Then how can one with this placement overcome the tendency of accumulating money?”

The answer is simple. The tendency of accumulating money can stop when love arrives in his life – because it is only LOVE that makes you feel secure. But when LOVE is MISSING – the tendency to accumulate money is seen because after love – it is money that bring a sense of security.

Yesterday Mohan said that his friend have had a breakup and now he is eating a lot, he has absolutely no control on his food intakes – he goes on eating….

I said to Mohan “ “Too much obsession with food is because now there is no love in his life. If you are not loved well, you will eat more. If you are loved and you can love, you will eat less. Whenever someone loves you, you cannot eat more. Love fills you so much, you don’t feel empty. When there is no love, you feel empty, something has to be stuffed in – and then you go on eating unlimited food. That’s what your friend is doing…he will stop overeating only when love re-enters in his life.”

And this is exactly what happens with second house moon natives – they overeat, indulge in eating many delicacies, continue to accumulate piles of money – because LOVE is MISSING – and so to overcome the negative results of second house moon placement – the native should focus on finding LOVE – because it is only LOVE that can bring peace to your heart.

The best advice to second house moon natives is very simple and straight:


Become a person of needs and not of desires.

Have you seen people?… from the very morning they start cleaning their car, as if that is their Bible and their God. ‘Things’ is the first sleep, the grossest. If you are attached too much to things and continuously thinking of things, you are asleep there. You have to come out of that. You have to look at what type of attachments you have, where you cling, and for what. What are you going to get there?

You may increase your things, you may accumulate a vast empire, but when you die you will go without things.

Second house moon natives should realize this – they should stop giving importance to ‘things’ on the outside – and start focusing within – else the tendency of being too attached to money and things in life will simply bring more miseries in your life than otherwise.


Jai Shri Ganesha. Jai Guru.
