Twelfth House Lord in Second House
12th house lord sitting in 2nd house.
First of all, let's see what 2nd house represent -
2nd house represents Family, Wealth, Speech, Family Lineage, Values, Mouth, Face, Throat, food you like to eat, Assets etc
One thing to always keep in mind with 12th house is that it basically remains the house of losses. So, whichever planet goes in 12th house, even exalted, is in the bucket of losses. Now, to gain out of any such planet, you need to put double effort in things related with that planet.
What does it mean to have 12th house lord in 2nd house?
It means the planet which rules/controls/owns the 12th house of your horoscope is sitting in the 2nd house of horoscope.
What is the impact of having 12th house lord in 2nd house?
This placement generically shows, in this day and age, that your wealth is coming from Foreign Lands, considering so many people work in MNCs. It also shows that person or his family has some Foreign Connection. It shows someone is very Spiritual in his Speech and whenever he speaks, he likes to speak about Spiritual Matters. Spirituality, Isolated Places and places like Hospitals & Jails can bring wealth to the native. In this time, this is a very good placement to have as it shows that person gets money from Foreign Sources and 99% population want to go abroad.
Now, results may be different due to aspect, conjunctions of other planets or the planet being Retrograde or Combust. Moreover, now we also need to check the strength of 2nd house lord as 12th house lord is going in 2nd house. So again, Overall Chart Reading is important.
How different planets will behave differently as 12th Lord in 2nd house?
Suppose it is a Virgo Ascendant chart and Sun rules the 12th house with Leo sign and sits in the 2nd house in the sign of Libra, where it is debilitation. As Sun is getting debilitated here and if it is very close to its exact debilitation degree, it shows that false ego or authority of person or his father is going to spoil the family environment and wealth. Person may be very egoist in his speech. Here, work at Foreign Land or association with Authoritative Spiritual Leaders may result in losing wealth or family. Father is authoritative but his ego spoils the family. Person may realize his true path later in life. At the same time, Career in any creative field is going to prosper the individual.
So it is Leo Ascendant Chart and Moon rules the 12th house with Cancer sign and sits in 2nd house in Virgo. This certainly shows a healer as 12th house is hospital, Moon is nourishing/taking care of people, Virgo is Healing itself. So, it shows that person gains wealth from Hospitals and taking care of people. This also shows that person is kind of perfectionist in matters of Speech, Wealth and Family. His mind is always on these matters and he continuously analyses if things are fine with 2nd house related matters. Here, Mother becomes all important person in Family.
Mars can be 12th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Taurus Ascendant -
So if it is Taurus Ascendant, Mars rules 12th & 7th house and sits in 2nd house in Gemini sign. As Mars is in enemy sign here, this shows person has a very harsh and blunt speech which results in him losing his wealth. It also shows stress and arguments within family and specially brothers over wealth and assets which spoils the family environment. Alternatively, this shows a person who might be working in a technical field in MNCs and getting his wealth from there. As Mars remains a malefic planet and in enemy sign, this shows person can be a spendthrift and may not be able to save his wealth.
Sagittarius Ascendant -
Now if it is Sagittarius Ascendant, Mars rules 5th & 12th house and sits in 2nd house in Capricorn sign, where it is exalted. This is much better position. Here, person will stand like a protector or guard for family and wealth. As Mars rules 5th house too, being exalted in 2nd house shows that either person earns through Sports or through Defense/Security jobs. Mars is still a malefic planet so arguments in family may still happen and person may still spend a lot but as it is exalted, everything will be done for a good cause and with a good intention.
Mercury also can be 12th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Cancer Ascendant -
If it is Cancer Ascendant, Mercury rules 12th & 3rd houses and sits in 2nd house in Leo. This shows a person who is very communicative in his family and earns wealth while working in the field of communication. This person can be in the field of Finance and Banking too. He can be a great writer or speaker as Mercury rules 12th house of imagination and 3rd house of communications and sits in 2nd house of speech. Person will be calculative about his speech and wealth. He will have a very creative style of writing.
Libra Ascendant -
If it is Libra Ascendant, then Mercury rules 9th and 12th house and sits in 2nd house in Scorpio. This can be a person who is earning his wealth from Occult and Mysticism as Scorpio is sign of Occult, Mercury is karaka of Astrology and Mercury rules 9th house of Ancient Teachers and 12th house of Spirituality. It shows that person may have gone through ups and downs in family and wealth matters. But a great position to become an occultist. Alternatively, person may work in technical or communications oriented field in MNCs. This also shows a spiritual counselor who counsels people about how to deal with turmoil and chaos in life.
Venus also can be 12th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Gemini Ascendant -
If it is Gemini Ascendant, Venus rules 12th & 5th house and sits in 2nd house in Cancer sign. This shows a person who is very emotional with his speech. As Venus also rules the 5th house of Creativity, this shows someone earning through creative endeavors. Person may also be involved in Service to others as 12th house is hospitals and Venus represents Service and Devotions. This shows a spouse coming from Foreign Lands for a guy. This person will have love towards caring and nourishing people
Scorpio Ascendant -

This person has love towards Higher Education and Philosophy. This person will be regarded as Guru among other people due to his speech. As Venus also rules 7th house, it shows person should connect with other people on the basis of higher knowledge and philosophy and that will get him wealth. Good wealth in both positions. Possibility of a Foreign Spouse with both positions.
Jupiter also can be 12th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Capricorn Ascendant -
If it is Capricorn Ascendant, Jupiter rules 12th & 3rd house and sits in 2nd house in Aquarius Sign. This is a position where a person can earn his wealth through working in Corporate Sector and in the field of Finance. They may be in position of Manager, VP or Mentor there. They can also be working as Finance Planner and Manager in Financial/Banking Institutes. As Jupiter expands things, here it expands the wealth of person. Alternatively, they can use their higher knowledge and counselling ability to guide people for Social Welfare.
Aries Ascendant -
If it is Aries Ascendant, Jupiter rules 9th & 12th house and sits in 2nd house in Taurus. This is even better placement for Wealth as Jupiter is in the house of Wealth and sign of Wealth. This surely shows a Religious or Spiritual Guru, as Jupiter rules 9th house and 12th house of Religion & Spirituality and Jupiter itself represents these two things. So, it is a good position for a Preacher or Spiritual Counselor. Great position for Wealth.
Saturn also can be 12th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Aquarius/Capricorn) as 12th house lord, Saturn in 2nd house (for Pisces/Aquarius Ascendants respectively) shows that person's family life is not settled at least till mid 30s. Money saving will be hard till then. Money will come and go. They see such dearth of money and lack of good family environment in early life that they realize the value of money early in life, hence in 2nd part of life they are going to be very cautious about money. These people taste success only after the toughest of labor. Saturn doesn't give anything easily in life and here the family and wealth are getting delayed. These people can be Lawyers or working in Govt or Large Organization. For Pisces Ascendants, Saturn is debilitated in Aries, hence it makes money making even more difficult in early life but as age progresses and person continues to put best effort, he will surely gain money in 2nd half of life. They can earn well from Govt, Law or MNCs.
If Rahu is 12th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 2nd house in Aries then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Aries in 2nd house will transform Rahu as Mars as Rahu changes its nature as per the lord of sign it is placed in. At the same time, Rahu's basic nature of being insatiable will remain there. Rahu in Aries in 2nd house shows a very impulsive person. This person can be prone to sudden burst of Anger and in that moment, they could be violent too. As it is in house of Speech, it can give aggressive speech. At the same time, they are highly action oriented. It is hard to keep them idle for even a small time. They can be earning their wealth from Large Organizations or from a very unique and unusual way. They can have a secret source of income. But it also means that person may be a Business Man.
Likewise, If Ketu is 12th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 2nd house in Capricorn 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 separates person from the concept of hoarding and gaining wealth. And that's why, people with Ketu in 2nd or 11th house end up as the richest people in the world because whatever you don't care for in life comes very easy to you. They don't care for wealth, so wealth comes easy. Here, Wealth will come from Scientific, Technological and Mystical Research Work. Ketu in 2nd house also becomes a karaka of 2nd marriage, so best way to avoid any such situation is to marry your spouse twice. It may also give a malefic speech to person. They feel isolation from family too, like both sides are unable to understand each other's point of view. It may also send person away from family in early childhood. Although, Ketu in Capricorn makes a person not too willing to show his authority over the world.
