Rahu in 2nd House: The placement of Rahu represents the area, where the person will exhaust his energies, in this life incarnation. Accordingly, a lot of desires, cravings, and obsessions will feed the mind. A sense of ‘I know everything’ and ‘I want everything’ will make him so obsessed that he might encounter trials tribulations linked to this position in 2nd house.
Firstly let’s understand what the 2nd house actually represents. The 2nd house in Astrology deals with Family Lineage, face, expression, speech, taste, food, accumulated wealth, and mathematical ability. Rahu wants to go against social norms to attain things, it will break the traditional rules and will rebel.
Therefore if a person is born with Rahu in the 2nd house, it can give an unusual and unorthodox environment in the early stage of his life. It can give parents and siblings who will be very different from others. If Rahu is afflicted then it will separate you from your lineage.
Hence if you have Rahu in the 2nd house, you will deal with an unorthodox family environment, and also the linkage of the family will be with the 8th house. You will find yourself surrounded by mystical, occult people. Or you can have past connections with these kinds of people.
Your family will have Astrologers, occultists, surgeons, or some life-death scenario. It can also give the experience of facing the strange death of either father or grandfather. Or you can be attracted to occult, alien, or UFO.
Rahu here will give you such a speech that you can easily grasp the crowd either by performing art or your knowledge since Rahu has the mystical energy so when you speak, people are mystified.
Rahu in 2nd house or even if it aspects 2nd house, here Rahu holds the mystical energy in the house of speech, therefore it can make you an exceptional astrologer. You can also become an accomplished banker as here your focus will be completely on materialistic things so you always long for money and position.
So Rahu in 2nd house, you will find that no one supports you to attain money, or nobody will help even. When Rahu in the 2nd house, Ketu will be in the 8th house, so here Ketu blocks that area, it is like a clot, meaning you don’t have access to the money of other people.
Things that are alive [Jeev] will not be there to support you but at the same time, things that are substantial will help you to gain. Now the reason is Jupiter is the karaka of the 2nd house and Rahu is the enemy, so it will not give Jeev Sukh but this is also the Artha house so it will definitely give monetary gains.
Rahu is flamboyant so when Rahu in the 2nd house or 10th house, if they show face then only they get money. But there is also a possibility of isolating yourself from the world, become secluded with family or home but if sign placement and the nakshatra are supporting then Rahu will definitely give name, fame, and wealth.
Rahu in 2nd House for Marriage/ Relationship
A Lawbreaker in the family lineage house, not ready to bend in front of any authority. One who believes in a relationship that is against social norms. Since Rahu represents suspicion and plotting, so there are chances of a person committing some mistakes, and then to hide those mistakes, he will lie, abuse, or uses such language to get into a relationship, which will be based on fake identity.
This individual has to deal with the illusory force of Maya in the realm of the 2nd house of family. Here the person will behave immaturely and might have to face family disputes, and since Rahu is Lobha, he will become selfish and stubborn. Due to these traits, he might have to struggle to save his marriage or relationships.
The prime reason behind this disturbing relationship will be his foul language, self-obsessed, bad food habits, being money-minded, and lack of resources.
Rahu in 2nd House for Finance / Career
Rahu in 2nd house in terms of finance and career can be considered a good position. This makes the person focus on accumulating money. Rahu does not follow rules, so there are chances of making black money, or the person will not pay taxes, or he can lie or deceive people to make his profits.
Rahu is the master of Manipulation, so to make money he can indulge in unlawful activities and make his bank balance loaded. Now I would like to mention that Rahu at lower levels will have such shady and untrustworthy personality.
However, if Rahu is operating at a higher level then the entire approach to earning money will change. First of all his needs will be very less, no Lobha, then he believes in commencing a disciplined and principled life. Such people never run for the money, they believe in winning relationships, love, and sacrifice their own interests to attain peace and happiness.
Aspects and its Effects
When Rahu is in the 2nd house it aspects the Artha Houses – 6th house, and 10th house. So the focus of unorthodox energy moves to the 6th house, the house of services- Prarbdha Karma house, So perhaps greed, and selfishness will be added, to his job. Rahu represents obsession and impulsive tendencies, therefore an aspect on the 10th house of the profession will delay the fame and status in his career.
Transit Rahu in 2nd House
When Rahu transits in the 2nd house, so firstly we need to see the natal position. As transit will deliver only what natal position has promised. If Rahu transits in the 2nd house for 18 months, then firstly we need to be thoughtful about all the significations the 2nd house represents.

Above all during this transit one should really be careful in his communication, as this can give a sarcastic and hurting tongue, which can ruin your wealth and relationships.
The 2nd house depicts a face, therefore Rahu here can give attractive but new looks, an impressive speech, and a good bank balance if there are strong Dhan yogas as well. Such people prefer to take livelihood related to Mathematicians, astrologer, researchers, singers, and musicians.
Since the 2nd house planet tells about the way the person will accumulate money, so Rahu position gives us options like the I.T. industry, the food industry, and the pharmaceutical industry. If there are afflictions then such a person will earn through the cigarette, drug, or alcohol industry.
Rahu is connected with foreign countries as well. Accordingly, some foreign land associates can be expected if it makes a relation with 2nd house and 2nd lord. Hope I have given enough description of Rahu working at low levels.
However higher-level Rahu indicates Jupiter or Lagna lord aspect on Rahu moreover position in Kendra or Trikona and making RajYogas. Such Rahu will work for higher principles and will elevate the energy of other planets as well and give them a spiritual intent.
