MARS in the 2nd House of a Horoscope
What I have observed over the years that Mangal or Mars draws a lot of attention from non-Astro folks. So I thought of writing down a quick article about Mars’ effects in all the 12 houses. I will try to cover in a very objective manner keeping side my creativity (whatever little) aside.
A Horoscope is called as “Manglik” if Mangal is placed in one of 1, 4, 7, 8, 12 houses; i.e. 5 out 12 people in this world are Manglik (aprx 42%). It indicates that it is not a big deal then? There are various varieties of Mangal coined by Astrologers: Kadak Mangal, Soumya Mangal etc! J Mangal with a Soumya planet like Moon or Venus is usually treated as Soumya. Or Mangal in Guru’s drushti is called Soumya. Even the one with Shani’s drushti is considered Soumya! So basically --- All Manglik varieties are Soumya?! J More on that later.
Mars is the governor of: Blood, Siblings, sports, land, vehicles, speed, aggression, adrenaline, south direction
Mangal in the 2nd house: Family, Wealth, Eyes, Tongue
This is a non-Manglik position. Mangal in this house makes person eat hot-n-spicy stuff and also shows inclination towards non-veg stuff. The voice is usually raspy and they tend to say things that hurt folks. They are usually straight talkers and can’t beat around the bushes. Moon/Mars in 2nd or 8th house make the person talk quite fast! Others find it very difficult to follow their speed. Many a times, speech is not clear in the childhood and takes time for them to say “R”. These folks tend to be extravagant in money matters. They lend or borrow money easily and get in trouble – overall they are hasty investors! J This Mars shows Karmic links with land in the family (Bhoomi). How good/baldly this Mars is placed will show if the past karma is good or bad with family land matters BUT no matter how bad the past karma with land, they tend to make property/land etc in this life. These folks also get very good support from brothers (mostly younger). Like the planets in Vrishabh rashi, this Mars in the 2nd house is self assured and relaxed as opposed to “stable on surface but boiling beneath” 8th house Mars. If the Mars is owner of 10, 11th house then these folks can also do business with siblings/cousins.
They have this habit of committing/promising something which they can’t delivery –i.e. they tend to over-promise! They usually have a lot of friends unless you have Shani seating with Mars or close aspect from Shani! They are also good at sports activities but the success in sports is not as much as the 1, 5, 9, 11 or 3rd house Mars.
There are good chances of hurting/injury to right eye, teeth, lips especially in the childhood. When the Mars is ill-aspected by Shani, it shows issues in family wealth, investments, inheritance of debts than wealth, severe health issues with eye, teeth, lips, throat etc and also blood related irregularities. It could also show some accidents to folks in the family.
Advice to Mangal folks is not to enter investments field independently until age of 27/28 i.e. after maturity (as defined by others and not you!) J Also, eating habits should be watched for too much of a hot-n-spicy stuff. Sanskrit mantra/stotra could certainly help with speech clarity in the childhood and later on too.
This Mars has drushti on 5th, 8th and 9th house of the horoscope: any planets there in close degrees as Mars would certainly see the effect of this drushti. Some bad placements in these houses would certainly be aggravated in such a case.
