The Basics

In Astrology, Mars represents action, energy, and drive. It influences our motivation, desire for achievement, and how we assert ourselves in pursuing our goals.

The Second House represents "Personal Finances and Values." It signifies an individual's material possessions, financial resources, self-worth, values, and how they relate to money and possessions.

If you have Mars in the 2nd House, you possess a strong drive to attain financial security and material abundance. You are determined, ambitious, and resourceful when it comes to pursuing your financial goals.

You have a strong work ethic and a self-reliant nature, willing to put in the necessary effort and take calculated risks to build your wealth and resources.

Your assertiveness and competitive spirit drive you to excel in areas related to finance, business, and the acquisition of material possessions.

You are persistent and determined, willing to overcome obstacles and setbacks to achieve your financial objectives.

With Mars in the 2nd House, you have a strong desire to be self-sufficient and independent in your material affairs. You are motivated to create financial stability and enjoy the fruits of your labor.

However, it's important to balance your materialistic drive with a sense of value and purpose beyond mere accumulation. Developing a healthy relationship with money and resources will bring greater fulfillment and satisfaction.

In relationships, you may seek a partner who shares your drive for financial stability and values your independent nature.

*Look at your Cosmodyne scores to see whether your Mars is Harmonious or Discordant.

While everyone has good and bad days, your Cosmodynes reveal where you lean toward on average.

(As we age, we learn to deal with all of our placements, and hopefully, we evolve into more harmonious beings than our Natal charts suggest.)

Transits to your Mars, especially from the outer planets, can greatly affect its expression as well.

A Discordant Mars in the 2nd House

  • You may have a tendency to be overly focused on material possessions and financial gain, neglecting other areas of life.
  • Your drive for financial success may lead to impulsive or reckless behavior in pursuing monetary goals. Impulse buying could be a problem for you.

Remember, everyone's charts are unique and complex.  Describing a single element of a chart (like Mars in the 2nd House) doesn't account for other influences that would provide more details.
