Ketu in 2nd House: Ketu is the most psychic planet and wherever it is placed it gives a mystic association with the effects of that house. When strong and working through its higher principles it elevates the mind to a state that is beyond the material level and then it unfolds a new path to attain liberation.
There is a spirit of detachment or “Vairagya” with Ketu’s position in the chart. Therefore a separative and serious force actually helps a person grow spiritually. And this contracting force, when associated with the 2nd house, gives some sort of harshness in its way to deal with responsibilities linked to the 2nd house.
Now first it’s important to understand the signification of 2nd house in the horoscope. The 2nd house in Astrology deals with Family Lineage, face, expression, speech, taste, food, and accumulated wealth. The second house is governed by the Taurus sign ruled by Venus plus Jupiter is the significator of the 2nd house. Now Ketu with an introverted approach deals with all these significances.
Hence if you have Ketu in the 2nd house, firstly it will give you such a family that will have some connection with the occult world. It can be either Astrology, Tantra, or even highly spiritually inclined.
Ketu in 2nd house tends to give a harsh speech and there is a strong sense of imbalance and unpredictability. Remember Ketu is a headless planet, which means it has no eyes and no clarity. This is the reason Ketu is often called childlike in the sense that its desires and demands are not very conscious. Perhaps this attitude continues throughout his life.
Ketu gives Strangeness
When Ketu is in the 2nd house you will find strangeness and limitations in their way of expressing their feelings. Not to forget Ketu is supposed to give results like Mars. In a way, it represents the extremes of Martian energy. Here Ketu is expressing his words in a hot, dry, fiery, and sharp way. That will also give domination, arguments, and misunderstanding.
And Rahu in the 8th house will undoubtedly get materialistic gains from the partner. While the 8th house also represents your partner’s wealth, inheritance, and insurance money. This axis actually requires a balance in one’s life. The balance between the rough tongue and spouse family and money.
Ketu and Jupiter
Jupiter is the karaka of the 2nd house, and Ketu is devoted to Jupiter perhaps Jupiter empties the negative qualities of Ketu. Due to this reason, the results given by Jupiter will easily be attained in this position.
Like Jupiter is the karaka of children, fortune, and wisdom. Hence one will be fortunate to attain these things easily unless there is some other affliction in the chart. Or the timeline is unfavorable.
The sign and planets posited in the 2nd house play the most important role. As Ketu will behave exactly like the planets and signs it is associated with. So if there is a Venus sign, then the sense of beauty, aesthetics, and relationship skills add to their speech, family, and food. And if Saturn signs it will bring a delay, disappointment, grief, and slowness in the results.
Ketu in 2nd House for Marriage/ Relationship
A psychic planet in the house of family lineage, with Martian energy. Being a planet of revenge and vengeance its anger is not temporary like Mars. It never forgets or forgives and its grudge can sometimes last till years. Therefore this makes Ketu most revengeful among planets.
Ketu when working through its lower principles brings some sort of abnormalities and pains in the physical as well and mental realms. In my view, Ketu intentionally ignores the rules of idealized social behavior. It is also a planet that represents isolation and alienation making a person introvert. This trait does not sustain relationships.
Ketu presents Psychic Being
Generally, speaking there is a spirit of psychic touch attached with the significations of the house/sign/planet/ Ketu is associated with. The 2nd house and its sign show the area in which the person had been working a lot in his previous lifetime. Now he has acquired some lessons and is remarkably skilled associated with the significance of the 2nd house.
The sign determines the talent of Ketu. The fire element gives intuitional, the earth gives practical, water gives sensitive and emotional based, and air gives intellectual talent and expertise.
I have noted in my experience that when Ketu is in 2nd house, it actually separates you from family. Here the grudge and revengeful attitude do the job. The speech is loud, blunt, and sarcastic as Mars plays its role. But the fortune will be attained as he has mastered the skill of getting rid of unstable and surviving in miseries.
Ketu produces a Sarcastic Behavior
Now relationships actually struggle when there is fiery and sarcastic speech. Also if a person holds a grudge and comes on the revenge mode with family. Then also it does not add to relationships.
Marriage and relationships are truly based on trust, sentiments, and companionship. Ketu is only emotional when in water signs like Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.
Plus Venus is the 2nd lord of the natural zodiac, and Ketu on one side has a strong liking for comforts and love and luxury but at the same time due to its unpredictable, aggressive, and eccentric behavior does not value relationships and love. Hence Ketu’s position in the 2nd house is usually found weak for marital happiness.
Ketu in 2nd House for Career/ Finance
Ketu in 2nd house for Career can give good results. As when linked with Artha houses like 2nd, 6th, and 10th there are chances that person will make enough money with career options, offered by Ketu.
Ketu governs all subjects like occult, magic, Astrology, Vastu Shastra, tarot reading, hypnotism, and other hidden knowledge. This kind of profession is not highly paid as it is more virtue and welfare-oriented.
Ketu signifies Secret Knowledge
But if there are other strong Rajyogas then Ketu can make you earn through occult also. Then there are chances of becoming philanthropists, as Ketu says “I don’t have desires”
Ketu signifies reality and truth, a secret knowledge which very few people are aware of, so more of tough work, like coding, programming, or research-oriented work.
Now keep in view that Ketu is a separatist planet, it gives you detachment from all sorts of materialistic things. Hence takes you towards truth and Liberation, you tend to have an association with religious or spiritual organizations.
And I have perceived that Ketu initially takes you towards Rahu things which is more materially based, but in later life after 45 years of age when Ketu gets mature and active to give its real results. It gives such an experience that takes you towards higher goals, leaving the material world behind.
The experience is actually a blessing in disguise. After all, every planet’s goal is to take you towards detachment with the fake and showy things and take the inner journey of higher knowledge, meditations, and eternal peace.
Thus Ketu can fulfill your material goals as you are skilled in earning and accumulating money but you cannot escape from the real shade of Ketu which works for higher goals.
Transit Ketu in 2nd House
When Ketu transits in the 2nd house of your horoscope for 18 months. It will link the results of your natal position to 2nd house results. Not to forget transit Ketu is only a delivery boy. Now at this particular time, you become attentive about 2nd house protection.
Primarily the savings of a person can take hardship. Due to rude and sarcastic behavior, a misinterpretation can occur in the family. You need to be selective about food intake, as it can harm your tendencies and choices. Above all during this transit one should really be cautious in his speech, as this can give a bitter and irritating tongue, which can ruin your assets and other valuable living bonds.
Ketu signifies hidden treasures and sudden gains and losses. All the extreme events like pauper becoming kings and kings becoming paupers are pronounced by Ketu.
The 2nd house Ketu can give you a small or separated family, and since Ketu is a separative planet with contracting force, it will reduce your food intake to half or there are chances that certain food items will be removed from your diet.
Ketu’s position tells us that you have mastered that particular house-related skill. Here you have an attitude “let’s learn from the past.”
Only a strong Ketu working through higher principles can give the independence of spirit to grow above these roots and look at everything with an open mind and heart. And 2nd house speaks of our family lineage, so definitely a strong unfinished karmic lesson comes the way of the person.
