So it is Gemini Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 2nd house and sits in 6th house in Scorpio, where it is debilitated. Now, if Moon is near its debilitation degrees then it shows that your family goes through transformative times due to some litigation in which you end up in losing wealth.

Saturn also can be 2nd house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 2nd house lord, Saturn in 6th house (for Sagittarius/Capricorn Ascendants respectively) shows that person has real healing abilities, specially in the sign of Cancer.

If Rahu is 2nd house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 6th house in Gemini then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Gemini in 6th house shows someone who earns his wealth through marketing of medicines. It shows pharmacist and medical representatives etc. Any field of Scientific and Technical research is good for them where they uplift the down-trodden with their service/work.
Likewise, If Ketu is 2nd house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 6th house in Pisces then 1st of all we need to make sure of Mars' position as it is the main ruler. As Ketu isolates/separates a person from the things related to the house Ketu is sitting, here it actually isolates person from the diseases and disputes, means person lives a very healthy life. At the same time, they are almost blind about the place where they are giving services. They have this attitude of being workaholic without seeing if that is helping them financially or even career-wise or not.
