North Node in 2nd House

Traditionally, the north node in 2nd house, also known as the Dragon’s Head in the Second House, brings personal fortune, luck in business, and an accumulation of wealth.  It might also portend a strong marriage, rich in love and intellectually stimulating.  Dragon’s Tail in the Eight House is associated with abuse of the lower passions and perhaps the strange death of a partner or relative.

For those with North Node in 2nd House, this is a lifetime about personal possessions and resources.  The universe will no longer support you in relying on other people’s money.  Your destiny is to become self-sufficient with all that this entails: living within your means, taking care of your body, and developing endurance.   As a general rule, shy away from credit and offers to use a partner’s resources.  The finances of others may prove troublesome for you in this lifetime.

As you learn to live within your means, you may swing to extremes, alternating between frugality and extravagance.   Perhaps you work hard to obtain a possession that is meaningful to you, but then give or gamble it away.  You may resort to a sort of laziness, relying on luck to provide for you.  Interestingly, the great communist theorist, Karl Marx, who proposed that all citizens of the nation should share equally in its wealth, had the north node in 2nd house node placement.  As did Ho Chi Minh. Without commenting on the validity of communism as a legitimate economic model, suffice it to say that such thinking is not for you.  Take your inspiration from Helen Keller, Benjamin Franklin, and Mohammed Ali, who all share the north node in 2nd house nodal placement and strove diligently to become self-sufficient.

Past life experience has given you knowledge of the occult, for which you have a natural talent.  You also have a sort of hangover preoccupation with sex.  Be vigilant of your motivations, as well, for you are prone to acting on base motives which you may hide from even yourself.  In fact, says astrologer Martin Schulman of someone with this placement, “while many may know him closely, none will know him well,” such is the depth of secrecy associated with the Eighth House, home to your South Node.

You come into this life with a strong connection to the dark side.  Perhaps you feel you lived on the outskirts of society as a child.  Maybe there were past lives of criminal behavior or misuse of occult knowledge. In this lifetime, your soul’s desire is to live a respectable life.  You are here to develop a sense of those things that are truly important to you and to obtain them honorably.

Death is an important part of life for you, much more so than for most people.  You may find in it, as you do in sex, a rejuvenating energy.  In fact, this placement can bring posthumous fame.   However, it is difficult for you to be completely conscious of your connection to this energy.  In probing the values of others (which you do with an eye on establishing your own value system), you unconsciously lead them astray.  You do not know it, but you undermine almost everything you touch.  At your worst, you are a claim jumper, with so little invested in yourself and with so little respect for others, that you claim what is theirs as your own without even realizing it.  You may also be subject to extreme moodiness, which is a way of undermining yourself.  Develop self-respect and you will simultaneously learn to respect others.  This will bring you emotional stability.

People with this placement may not have experienced privacy in their childhood.  Circumstances in their early life left them feeling that they had nothing to call their own.  The adult is preoccupied with financial security which s/he associates with harmony and peace.    It is appropriate for you to be focused on material comforts in this lifetime, and you will find yourself fully engaged and passionate about life when you acknowledge your personal needs and go about meeting them with a patient, consistent, determination.  Build a beautiful physical environment for yourself first, then share your security according to your values.

The bottom line is that, with the north node in 2nd house placement, you must learn to manage your personal resources.  Do not use all your energy on others.  Earn what you need and spend less than you make.  Build your physical strength.  Eventually you will build the stability and security you do desperately desire.

Anton Szander Levay, founder of the Church of Satan, also (apparently) was born with North Node in Second House.  His philosophy is a truly diabolical mixture of 2nd and 8th House concepts.

This is a negative view. I do not agree that necessarily a person with the south node in the 8th has to be that negative. There are evolved people with certain aspects that express their more elevated and positive side if things'

Thank you so much for your relpy. I’ve been learning astrology on my own by just watching videos/reading articles. These feelings I have of anxiety are from when I decided to research my son’s birth chart, back in July of this year. I’m kind of all over the place when it comes to learing… I use’s birth chart calculator and then watch either her videos or KRS on youtube. Lada is currently a western astrologer but I think she may be switching to vedic. KRS is vedic also. What concerns me is while doing research about my son’s Node placements, I read that it is one of the most difficult and involves a large amount of death and losing things (and people) who are the most valuable to him. I’ve also read that it can be a sign of sexual abuse (along with Pluto in the 4th). When I watch videos, sometimes their words are like swords (“lack of mother’s nourishment… your mother/father was ‘absent’ somehow…”) and it leaves me haunted by my little boy’s birth chart. I have SO much passion for astrology but I can’t get the darkness I see in my son’s chart out of my mind. 12th House is the House of the unseen/your undoing/where you put alot of energy. When I looked up Sun being there or Moon being there, people always talk about the native’s Mom/Dad being absent in some way… either death or emotionally unavailable or addiction… My husband and I have such a happy little family and our son’s birth chart has me scared beyond belief. I don’t want anything to change for the worse. I am so scared of the sudden events that my son’s South Node in the 8th House will bring. Do you do readings? If so, can you let me know how much it would be to take a look at our charts? Thank you for your time!'

Do not be scared. Please, try to find a good astrologer to teach you. I have moon in 12th and my mom has been a good mother. My moon has good aspects and I am very intuitive and artistic. Astrology should not be a sentence of bad things going to happen. We all have freedom of choice and could manifest a higher octave of the planets and their positions in our chart. If you raise your son with good values and love, and teach him to make good choices, you probably should not worry. The eighth house is transmutation and renewal as well as inheritances. Best of luck'

My son has North Node in 2nd house, along with Saturn (less than 2 degrees apart) in Scorpio. He also has Pluto in the 4th in Capricorn and Sun and Moon (along with Mercury) in the 12th in Virgo. Sun and Moon less than a degree apart. He is only 2 years old and I am a nervous wreck. I cry every single day. All I see when I look at his birth chart is pain and suffering. I wish I never started learning about astrology… it has turned me into an anxious mess. I don’t even look forward to the future anymore. Please help me!'

I also have my north node in Gemini in 2nd house and I don’t really understand what it is referring to when it says “In probing the values of others (which you do with an eye on establishing your own value system), you unconsciously lead them astray. You do not know it, but you undermine almost everything you touch.”
I don’t know if it’s my mind “blocking” the meaning behind those words but I genuinely don’t understand what it means. Can somebody be kind enough to explain to me??'

“…you unconsciously lead them astray. You do not know it, but you undermine almost everything you touch…” Is this true of me? It makes me feel very shamed. How do I stop unconsciously leading people astray and undermining almost everything I touch? I mean…that’s making me cry. What is the way out?
