MOON IN 2nd HOUSE
Sutras 9-14-The native will be handsome in appearance, full of glory, wealthy and easily satisfied. In his 18th year he will get the appointment as his commander-in-chief by the king (this can also mean that he gets a distinguished professional achievement by the favour of the king in his 18th year). If the Moon is associated with a malefic, the native will be uneducated. If the Moon is in conjunction with benefic or benefics, the native will be highly educated and wealthy. If only .full Moon is in the second house, the native will be very wealthy and highly educated.
Comments-The second house amongst other things is also significator efface. The Moon in the first as well as in the second house gives the native a handsome appearance. It is stated that if the Moon is in the second, the native is appointed commander-in-chief in the 18th year of his life. This is difficult to swallow. It is hardly likely that any person at the tender age of 18 can be capable of and qualified to hold such a high and responsible post. This may have been possible in the times of the author but it is quite impracticable now-a-days. All that we should infer from this statement is that a benefic Moon in the second (preferably in Aries, Taurus or Cancer) will help the native to achieve in his young age a distinct professional achievement by the favour of the King and Government. The second house is house of wealth (Dhanabhava). According to author of Bhrigu Sutras educational achievements also fall within the sphere of the second house. That is why it is stated that if Moon is under malefic influence, the native will be uneducated. If the Moon in the second house is under benefic influence, or if there is a full Moon alone in the second house, the native will be highly educated and wealthy. In this connection it should be noted that full Moon is rated as a first class benefic.
Brihat Jataka-The person concerned will have a large-family.
Phaldeepika-If the Moon is in the second the native will be soft spoken and will enjoy all material comforts, but there will be something wrong with his speech.
Saravali-Native will get all comforts of life and happiness, will have friends and will be wealthy. If there is full Moon in the second house the native will be very rich but will not be much talkative.
Chamatkar Chintamani-The native will gain wealth and enjoy all comforts of the body (that is, he will be very healthy). He will enjoy women and will be affectionate towards members of his family. He will be very handsome.
Note-All are agreed that the Moon in the second house will give very beneficial results according to the significations of this house, assuming however, that there is no malefic influence on such Moon. It should also be assumed that the lord of the second is well placed in the horoscope.
Here we also take the liberty of mentioning that Moon in the second house will not give good results if she is lord of 6th, 8th and 12th. This will happen when Aquarius, Sagittarius and Leo are the ascendants respectively.
