What if Mercury is in 2nd house for Scorpio Ascendant? (Vedic Astrology)
Mercury rules the 8th house and the 11th house and will fall in the sign of Sagittarius when placed in the 2nd house for a Scorpio ascendant. There are several possibilities with this placement and here are some of them.
1) The default ruler of the 2nd house is Venus and Venus represents all the assets (whether the financial assets or the business products) of the native. When the sign of Sagittarius falls on the 2nd house the business products could also be related to wood as wood is obtained from trees and the sign of Sagittarius represents the trees and plants and crops. So, people doing furniture business or woods (lumber/timber/plywood/pulp & paper wood/) business may have their Mercury placed in the 2nd house in the sign of Sagittarius.
2) People who are doing business of wooden baskets, wooden temples, wooden statues, wooden toys, wooden pencils, wooden handicrafts, wooden boxes, wooden knives, antique wooden items, wooden musical instruments, etc. can also be seen from this placement. Here is the complete list of all things made of wood > https://www.dec.ny.gov/docs/lands_forests_pdf/woodproducts.pdf.
3) Mercury in the 2nd house is also good for speaking as the 2nd house represents all the body parts on the face such as the mouth and we speak from our mouth only and Mercury is also a planet of communication. In business, we speak more rather than doing any kind of work with our hands as we need to tell the price and describe the product qualities to the customers. So, people who are running retail or whole businesses and speaking with the customers are generally seen from this placement of > Mercury in the 2nd house in the sign of Sagittarius. So, Scorpio ascendants could also be businessmen when Mercury is placed in the 2nd house.
4) If Moon, Venus, and Mercury all three are placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 2nd house then this is really the best placement for owning a retail store related to all the luxury items made of wood and paper, as mentioned above, as the paper is also obtained from wood. There are many things that are made from uncoated paper such as greeting cards, business cards, playing cards, marriage cards, chart papers, books, copies, printing paper, postage stamps, envelops, presentation folders, gift wrapping paper, napkins, and paper towels, tissues and toilet papers, newspapers and magazines, etc and so all these are also represented by the sign of Sagittarius.
5) Venus and Mercury in the sign of Sagittarius are also good for all kinds of arts and painting on canvas paper and using cardboards. Moon in Sagittarius is also good for all kinds of arts on clothing such as embroidery as Moon and Venus both represent clothing also. Printed sarees are also good examples of arts in clothing.
6) The sign of Sagittarius represents all the natural resources and so people who speak about and market such natural resources may also have their Mercury placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 2nd house. For example, many products are made from the skin of animals and so the animals are killed or hunted and Scorpio is also a sign of killing or hunting. So, Scorpio ascendant natives are also the hunters who kill animals and make products out of their skin such as leather products.
All the leather products are made from animal skin. Handbags, purses, leather shoes, gloves, leather coats, etc are good examples of that. Animals like cattle, calves, sheep, lambs, goats, and pigs are killed or hunted for leather products and all these are represented by the sign of Sagittarius. People who are teaching subjects like biology and environmental science may also have this placement as biology and environmental science is quite related to plants, animals, trees, and other natural resources. If Saturn is also placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 2nd house then the native could be involved in the manufacturing of all the products as mentioned above as Saturn is a planet of manufacturing as it represents all the machinery and tools made of iron and steel.
7) Wool is also obtained from the skin of animals like Sheep and so people doing business of wool, cotton, and silk can also be seen when Mercury is placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 2nd house. Clothing is the main item manufactured with wool, cotton, and silk such as woolen clothes, cotton clothes, and silk sarees. Scorpio ascendant natives usually do business and when Sun and Mercury are placed in the 2nd house of family assets. Anything obtained from nature, such as from plants and animals, is represented by the sign of Sagittarius.
8) Sun, Venus, and Mercury in the 2nd house in the sign of Sagittarius are also good for floral (flowers) or decorative items business. Sun is a planet of decoration and Venus is a planet of luxury items. We get flowers from plants only and Sagittarius is a sign that represents the planets, trees, and animals (natural resources). Venus and Sun are the major planets of creativity and so people doing all kinds of creative work such as woodwork or artwork may also have this placement. Moon represents the glasses and so if Moon is also placed in the 2nd house, then people doing artistic work related to glass can also be seen from this placement.
9) Forensic pathologists can also be seen from this placement of > Mercury in the 2nd house in the sign of Sagittarius especially if the 2nd lord Jupiter is placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 1st house. This is because Scorpio is a sign of dead bodies and forensic pathologists work with the dead bodies to find the cause of death for unnatural deaths, suicide, and murders. Any profession related to dead bodies (such as funeral services) can be seen from this placement. This is because Sagittarius is also a sign of rituals and law. A coroner is also a good example of that.
10) There are many types of inspections and quality checks such as a home inspection, manufacturing inspection, fire equipment inspection, drug & medicines inspection, shipment inspection, public inspection for security, inspection of licenses of all kinds, health care inspection, food inspection, etc and people involved in such inspections could also be Scorpio ascendants with Mercury placed in the 2nd house in the sign of Sagittarius and the 2nd lord Jupiter being placed in the sign of Scorpio in the 1st house or even in the 9th house in the sign of Cancer. The thing is Scorpio is also a sign of inspection to check if everything is alright and so Scorpio ascendant natives often carry out such inspections as their profession. People like journalists may also have this placement as they also do a lot of research and investigation and Scorpio is also a sign of research and investigation.
11) Sun is heat and light and fire also have heat and light and so if Sun and Mercury are placed in the sign of Sagittarius in the 2nd house and if the 2nd lord Jupiter is placed in the sign of Aries in the 6th house, then people who are into cooking (like chefs) can also be seen from this placement. But other planets in the birth chart should also support that. In cooking, fire is involved and 2nd house is also the house of food as Venus is the default ruler of the 2nd house.
When Sun is placed in the sign of Sagittarius it is like burning wood to generate fire as wood is obtained from trees and Sagittarius is a sign that represents the trees, plants, crops, and other natural resources. Aries is also a sign of fuel and motion and so Jupiter in Aries is good for burning something to cook. When Sun is transiting through the sign of Sagittarius the forest may catch fire as Sun is a hot planet and the sign of Sagittarius represents the forest. Sagittarius is a sign of exploration and Mars in Sagittarius is also good for hunting or exploring the jungle.
12) Mercury and Saturn in the sign of Sagittarius in the 2nd house are also good for transportation and travel as Sagittarius is a sign of long-distance journeys or exploration and Saturn is a planet that represents all the machines and even the vehicles are nothing but moving machines. If the 2nd house lord Jupiter is placed in the sign of Aries in the 6th house, then people like truck drivers or vehicle drivers can also be seen from this placement. Even the business people also talk a lot with the transporters and vehicle drivers as they need to transport their goods from one place to another. Scorpio is a major sign of migration and so Scorpio ascendants are often involved in migration or relocation services and that is not possible without vehicles.
13) Saturn and Mercury in the 2nd house in the sign of Sagittarius is also good for the manufacturing or processing of all kinds of food grains such as sugarcane, rice, pulses, oils, etc
14) Mercury in Sagittarius is also good for reading the news (Journalists) as Sagittarius is also a sign that represents knowledge and information.
