Chapter 24 – House of Wealth

     The second house from the ascendant is called house of family, speech and money. These are the three main things we can know from this house.
     If the lord of the second house is exalted or in own house or in friendly house then the above mentioned things would be favorable to the native. If debilitated or in enemy house then would get unfavorable results.
     In north Indian charts, the top left most triangles is the second house. From the natural order of zodiac sign marked in the ascendant, we can derive which zodiac sign is second house. For example if the ascendant is marked with 4 then the second house would be Leo.
