Is Rahu in 2nd house for a Leo Ascendant good placement? (Vedic Astrology)
Home : Vedic Astrology: You are here
But since 2nd house is ruled by Venus in the default zodiac so 2nd house is also of sensual pleasures and all the luxuries of life and so Rahu here could get obsessed about getting all the luxuries of life and also sensual pleasures depending on the location of Venus in the birth chart.
For example, if Venus is placed in the Mrigashira Nakshatra (as this Nakshatra is about acquiring sensual pleasures of life) in the sign of Gemini in the 11th house then here Rahu will make the person obsessed about doing a lot of shopping. There will be a lot of spend in getting all the luxuries of life. Otherwise, it may not be so.
1) If instead Venus is placed in the sign of Taurus in the 10th house then the native may get obsessed about dealing with the finances in the government as 10th house represents the government and the sign of Taurus represents the finances. It may be that he is in some government job and dealing with the finances or accounts all the time. Here the native could also be status-oriented which means he could be an actor (or actress) as actors want to be in the limelight to show their acting skills and Venus (or the sign of Taurus) represents acting.
Why Venus is acting? This is because Venus represents females and females are good at acting like they do the acting of crying at some death or to impress someone. There is no specific reason to cry but just to show off.
2) When Rahu is in the 2nd house we need to take into consideration both Venus and Mercury as Venus rules the 2nd house in the default zodiac and Mercury rules the Virgo sign which falls on the 2nd house for a Leo Ascendant. If, for example, Venus is placed in the 12th house in the sign of Cancer then the native may get obsessed about nurturing as Cancer is a sign of nurturing and there will be different ways to nurture depending on the location of Moon, the ruler of the sign of Cancer.
But since 12th house is the house of spirituality and the way to express spirituality is through music, dance, and singing and so Rahu in the 2nd house could make the native obsessed about music, dance and singing (performing on stage in general) if Venus is placed in the 12th house. But there are a lot of other possibilities > I am just giving an example. But nurturing is also providing a service to a company so you may even provide a service to a multinational company or some online company as 12th house represents foreign places and "behind the scenes" which means the world of internet and media.
Serving food is also a way to nurture and so you may also be involved in providing food services (online or offline) when Venus is placed in the Cancer sign in the 12th house. But you could also be a doctor or nurse as 12th house also represents isolated places like hospitals, jails, asylums, health care centers, resorts, etc.
3) Again, considering that Rahu is placed in the 2nd house, if Venus is placed in the sign of Aries in the 9th house then here the native gets obsessed about showing aggression as Aries is a sign of showing aggression and there will be different ways to show aggression (depending on the location of Mars) such as sports, being police, being a cook, being an athlete, etc.
Venus can enjoy anything depending on the sign where it is located. If Mars is located in the 6th house of competition then the native could be in sports as Mars is energy and sports is not possible unless you have that extra energy or in other words, your Mars needs to be strong for sports. Mars becomes very strong in the 6th house of competition and so sports career is definitely possible. Sachin Tendulkar, the great Indian cricket player, has his Venus in Aries in 9th house and Mars in the 6th house.
4) Again, considering that Rahu is placed in the 2nd house, if Venus is placed in the sign of Pisces in the 8th house then here the native could get obsessed about (depending on the different locations of Jupiter as Jupiter rules Pisces) going away from this normal world such as going to outer space, going to Himalayas for trekking, going in the air in a balloon or becoming a pilot, being a spiritual guru or a spiritual healer as Pisces is also a sign of spirituality and also a sign of isolated and far off places and also things of the other dimensions. You could also be a vehicle driver when Venus is in Pisces as you have that passion to move to far off places.
But if Jupiter is in Pisces along with Venus in the 8th house then you become more about acquiring hidden knowledge such as occult science including astrology, numerology, palmistry, etc. which the 8th house represents.
5) Again, considering that Rahu is placed in the 2nd house, if Venus is placed in the sign of Aquarius in the 7th house then here the native gets obsessed about making contracts and relationships with the masses (or the public) as the sign of Aquarius represents the public and 7th house is the house of contracts and relationships and also interacting with the public. So the native could be in the customer care with this placement or could be working on sites like upwork.com and freelancer.com where you can make contracts with different people from different countries for doing web-based projects like web design, web programming, app development, software development, etc. But most of the time people sitting in retail businesses have this placement as a lot of customers come to them and they make deals with them > by selling their product to them and getting the money in return which is a contract represented by the 7th house.
6) Again, considering that Rahu is placed in the 2nd house, if Venus is placed in the sign of Capricorn in the 6th house then here the passion and obsession of the native is to compete as 6th house is the house of competition and the sign of Capricorn is all about status and higher rankings and posts and positions. I myself have this placement and I am competing in Google to rank higher my website (as Venus represents a website) and also I did a lot of SEO work in the past for a foreign company. People in sports and people who are involved in competitions related to beauty, luxury items, food competitions, dress competitions, etc may have this placement of Rahu and Venus. Also, someone who is a judge in a competition.
7) Again, considering that Rahu is placed in the 2nd house, if Venus is placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 5th house then here the passion and obsession of the native could be about religion, giving knowledge about God and Dharma to other people, giving knowledge about ancient texts such as Ramayana, Mahabharata, Bible, Quaran, Bhagvat Gita etc to other people, giving knowledge about law and legal matters to other people, giving knowledge and information about some products to the customers, giving knowledge and information about sports competitions (such as sports commentators), doing research on sports and also doing research on fun and entertainment such as music and dance, etc. But still a lot will depend on the location of Jupiter, lord of the 5th house, also in the birth chart. News anchor can also be seen from this placement as News anchor is all the time giving information and knowledge about world events.
8) Again, considering that Rahu is placed in the 2nd house, if Venus is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 4th house then here the passion and obsession of the native could be about sexual pleasure especially if Mars is also placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 4th house. This is because 4th house is the house ruled by Moon in the default zodiac and Moon is more about relaxation and here since the Scorpio rules the 4th house this relaxation could be through sex especially if Mars and Venus are also placed in the sign of Scorpio.
But here the native may also be involved in a profession related to sex such as a sex therapist or even a heart surgeon especially if Saturn is also placed in the 4th house as the 4th house represents our heart and Saturn in the sign of Scorpio does the action of digging deep which could be a surgery here.
9) Again, considering that Rahu is placed in the 2nd house, if Venus is placed in the sign of Libra in the 3rd house then here the passion and obsession of the native could be about making business deals as Libra is a sign of business. But this could also be the placement for someone who is into designing, arts and coding especially over the internet & computer such as web designers, graphic designers, architect, app and mobile developers, etc. Such people often make use of online tools like photoshop etc. This is because the 3rd house represents the world of media > and computer & internet are also part of the media world. But someone could also be an actor or a film director in the media with this placement of Venus. But this placement is also found in people who talk about world peace and establishing peace and harmony.
10) Again, considering that Rahu is placed in the 2nd house, if Venus is placed in the sign of Leo in the 1st house then here the passion and obsession of the native could be about teaching others and so the native could be a teacher or even be an actor or a stage performer in general. The native could also play a lot of video games in childhood with this placement. Basically here the native is more concerned about the fun and entertainment world. For example, Sonu Nigam is a Leo Ascendant and his Venus is in the first house in the sign of Leo and he is a singer and a stage performer. Check the birth chart of Sonu Nigam here.
11) Venus is debilitated when placed in the 2nd house so read more about it here > debilitated Venus in the 2nd house.
