Mars in Scorpio in 2nd house. Is it a good or bad placement? Vedic Astrology
Home : Vedic Astrology: You are here
So the life of a person (Libra Ascendant) will be secure when it comes to wealth and family and even if there is not much wealth in your life still you will be satisfied with it as the lord of 2nd house is seated in its own house.
Since Mars is energy the person spends a lot of his energy in the 2nd house with this placement. You must be knowing about the job of an income tax office? He goes to the financial departments of various businesses to check their account books and see if the business is being carried out legally or not. So his job is to detect anything that is not as per the laws and this act of detecting is what the Scorpio activity is. Scorpio is a sign to dig deep for the truth and since here the 2nd house is of finances so the financial books are being researched to find out the truthfulness of the businesses. So a person may be involved into such researches related to finances and food if his Mars is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 2nd house.
This is the major difference between the sign of Virgo and the sign of Scorpio. Virgo is to work hard and complete the books of accounts (an accountant does this) and Scorpio is to detect if everything has been done as per the rules or regulations or not.
2nd house is also of food and sensual pleasures. So the person may also be very secretive (as Scorpio is a secretive sign) in acquiring sensual pleasures of life. He will secretly enjoy eating and other pleasures of life. For example, he may hide when he eats as he does not want to reveal it to anyone that he ate. He may even secretly go to watch bad movies (as this is also a type of sensual pleasure represented by the 2nd house) but this is more so if Venus is placed in the 8th house (considering Mars still in the 2nd house) as 8th house is a house of hidden sexual activities and Venus is enjoyment. Venus is the significator of 2nd house.
Whenever energy is spent in the sign of Scorpio (Mars in Scorpio) then that is done to activate Venus as both the Venus and Scorpio go hand in hand. So, when Mars is placed in the sign of Scorpio the energy is being spent to acquire sensual pleasures of life and the type of pleasure will depend on the location of the Venus in the birth chart. I already said before if Venus is placed in the 8th house it is the activation of secret sexual pleasure or gambling (such as stock markets or sports betting) as Venus in 8th house does that only as it is in the sign of Taurus and 8th house represents gambling and private parts as 8th house is the Muladhara chakra.
If Venus is placed in the 5th house (still considering Mars in Scorpio) then it may be the activation of pleasure through fun and entertainment such as cinema or theatre as 5th house represents that. Then the person becomes very collective in the fun and entertainment world or with the children as the 5th house also represents children.
Since the 2nd house represents your voice you may have a very deep and intense voice due to the Scorpio sign on the 2nd house.
Also, the 2nd house is 8th from the 7th house of relationships and since the lord of 7th house (Mars) is seated in the 2nd house (Mars in Scorpio) it shows the end of relationships or involving in secret relationships or contracts because any house which is 8th house from a particular house is the death or endings of that particular house. So here the marriage may be at risk if there is a malefic aspect on the 7th house (especially if Rahu is placed in the 7th house) and there may be two marriages also. With this placement of Mars, you may be secure with the wealth but not with the relationships or partnerships unless there is an aspect of Jupiter to the 7th house or if Jupiter is placed in the 7th house in your birth chart.
So this placement may have both negative or positive aspects as Scorpio is a karmic sign and any planet in it may not always be good. It is sometimes bad also.
If Rahu is placed in the 8th house (in Taurus sign) and Mars in the 2nd house (in Scorpio) then the person may also be into web design or programming or some sort of coding as 8th house represents coding.
