What Rahu can do in the sign of Leo in 2nd house (Vedic Astrology)?
Home : Astrology: You are here
But it is for sure the person is obsessed with money and sensual pleasures of life. 2nd house is ruled by Venus (by default) and Venus is about shopping, creativity, eating good food, luxury etc. So Rahu in the 2nd house may make the person obsessed about all these things as Rahu is a natural malefic and want things quickly without having to work hard or just doing anything to acquire the wealth.
But there is a lot of possibilities what Rahu could be doing in the sign of Leo in the 2nd house for cancer ascendant person. Things will be more clear when you will also look at the position of Sun and Venus in the birth chart. Sun rules Leo (the sign on the 2nd house) while the Venus is the 2nd house ruler by default (The birth chart of an Aries Ascendant is the default chart). That is why analyzing both of them with their respective placements in the chart is important.
Rahu can even make a person to gamble with the money when placed in the 2nd house and if the sun is not well placed and if the degree of Rahu is high it can cause heavy losses in gambling. Rahu always moves in the opposite direction of other planets like sun, moon, mars etc. So if the degree of Rahu is 1 in the astrology software you should minus 1 from 30 and that will give you 29 degree which will be very high. It simply means the obsession in the person is too much.
If the sun is placed in the sign of Aquarius in the 8th house of gambling and if Saturn (the original ruler of Aquarius) is not sitting with sun and if the degree of Rahu is high (above 20) then loss from gambling (like stocks market) is definitely possible.
You may ask why Rahu in the 2nd house cause the person to gamble? This is because the person is so much obsessed with money that he needs it quickly and sees the gambling as the priority. But the truth is he may not even think to gamble even if the Rahu is in the 2nd house if Sun is well placed. 8th house is bad as it is the house of sudden ups and downs. But the person can actually make a lot of money even from gambling if Saturn (the lord of Aquarius sign on the 8th house) is placed along with the sun. This is because a planet always protects its own (infect gives benefits) house when it is seated on that house.
Leo is also a sign of reputation and image in the world. Since for a Cancer Ascendant person it is on the cusp of the 2nd house it also means the person may also be known in the world as a creative person as Venus (2nd house ruler by default) is creativity. That is the reason many actors and actresses in the Bollywood and Hollywood are Cancer Ascendant as Venus is also acting (a creative art). So Rahu in the 2nd house can also make you an actor if suppose Venus is placed in the sign of Capricorn in 7th house and if Saturn (the lord of 7th house) is also sitting with Venus. And also a painter if moon is in the sign of cancer in the first house as well. 7th house is the house of creativity as it represents the Swadisthana Chakra of creativity in the human subtle system.
But nothing is still confirmed without looking at the position of the planets in the Navamsa chart also as Navamsa tells you how you are from the inside while the birth chart is just the life's situation. I have explained this thing already in the article > significance of exalted Venus.
But one thing is confirmed Rahu will never do badly in the 2nd house in the sign of Leo if the sun (lord of Leo) is sitting in a house where the lord of that house is also sitting with it. If it is not so and if the degree of Rahu is high it will surely create a problem in the 2nd house related to money and you may even get into debt or too much obsessed about eating or something that sort like success in career may also be difficult and not on time. Other than that if Venus is in the sign of Scorpio in the 2nd house in Navamsa chart then it may also give you a lot of vomiting.
