Pisces Ascendant -
So if it is Pisces Ascendant, Mars rules 2nd & 9th house and sits in 12th house in Aquarius sign. It shows someone working with large organizations. MNCs in foreign lands and earning wealth, but as Mars is not too good in Aquarius sign, it shows that person remains frustrated with his wealth, no matter how much he earns.

Saturn also can be 2nd house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 2nd house lord, Saturn in 12th house (for Sagittarius/Capricorn Ascendants respectively) shows that there is lots of struggle and hard work involved in going into Foreign Lands. Person will try a lot but real chance of reaching there will come in 30s only. Now, as it will delay the access to foreign lands, it will also delay the exit from Foreign Lands, means person will go there for a very long time and coming back to homeland will be an equally long struggle. Clearly shows someone in the field of Law in Foreign Lands or works in Legal Teams of MNCs.
Aquarius Ascendant -
If it is Aquarius Ascendant, Jupiter rules 2nd & 11th house and sits in 12th house in Capricorn, where it is debilitated. If Jupiter is at right degrees of debilitation, then it shows that person will meet some fake Guru in Foreign Lands or Isolated places who will become cause of loss of his wealth. Else it shows someone is earning wealth from Legal Profession or being a Counselor in Foreign Lands. Wealth will come surely but person will not feel happy about it. Both positions also show that person himself or children may go to foreign lands for study.
If Rahu is 2nd house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 12th house in Sagittarius then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Sagittarius in 12th house shows someone who has great inclination towards study of different religions and cultures and almost obsessed with religious beliefs. Rahu in 12th house at the same time makes a person spendthrift, so they need to be careful about their expenses.
Likewise, If Ketu is 2nd house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 12th house in Virgo 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 concept of spiritual beliefs spread by others. They never find themselves agree with the concepts of spirituality of others and always find fault there. Similarly, they reach foreign land but don't find anything of interest there and feel isolated. It is one of the most prominent Moksha Margi position.
