Neptune in 2nd House
Neptune in the 2nd house is one of the most difficult combinations in terms of the physical and spiritual world. As most astrology interpretations state this position does not mean they will “suffer” from misfortune and never materialize money. It’s just that it is difficult to combine a ’fixed’ earth house with a planet that is the least attached to personal possessions.
Neptune lacks the ability to sustain itself in the martial world and is the least worldly of all the planets. The 2nd house rules our personal finances, income, self-worth and the capacity to sustain ourselves, and it also rules our talents and abilities.
Wherever Neptune is found in the chart is where we identify with the victim/Savior archetype and it is also the place where we "drown". Neptune’s house is where we feel our most compassionate and sensitive, and it’s where we long to escape from the mundane responsibilities of life.
Neptune in the 2nd house may signify impracticality, confusion and chaos around resources. It may also represent the fantasy and longing for money so that this person can live out their dreams. Those with Neptune placed here do have to be careful of get rich quick schemes and being deceived by people who promise them the "earth" and an “easy way out” of their money troubles.
Those with Neptune in the 2nd house could find it difficult to see clearly the “reality” of a financial situation. A lack of discrimination and overly-compassionate approach to the material realm, often means there is difficulty in saying “no” to those who ask for help financially. These people can give-up everything they own, believing that money and resources will bring emotional closeness.
When Neptune is placed here, it sometimes indicates sympathy for those less fortunate or unable to cope with the practical side of life. Neptune’s compassion may allow someone else to drain their own resources or Neptune in the 2nd house may heavily depend on the financial resources of others, and sometimes Neptune’s house placement represents the part of life where we feel we are the most dependent and "helpless". Wherever Neptune is in the chart, it signifies where we can feel our most dissatisfied.
Many of these individuals are born with a kind of non-attachment attitude which often unconsciously contributes to financial difficulties. Neptunians can also be left confused about why money is lost, misplaced, or even deceptively used by others. The task for Neptune in the 2nd house is to feel that true sense of autonomy within and feel sustained by imaginative and “non-material” resources and pay attention to their material world without becoming its victim.
Neptune in the 2nd House
You may prefer not to attach too much value to money, but if this is overdone, there can be quite a few problems in life concerning money and ownership. You might make money through artistic pursuits, but you must avoid the potential pitfalls of putting too much faith in ideas that don’t have enough grounding in reality. Financial advice is important to obtain.
You may have developed a non-materialistic personal philosophy. This might work well for you, but it could also lead to impractical attitudes and money problems. When it comes to making money, you tend to act on hunches and intuition. You might have faith that you will come into money one day, or daydream a lot about being wealthy. The trick is to have faith in your own self-worth. If you frequently have money problems, you might want to examine whether you truly are not attached to material things, or if it stems from undervaluing your own worth or value.
When Neptune is in good condition in the second house, there can be a sense that you are wealthy no matter what you actually have, and this faith can bring you exactly what you need. If Neptune is challenged, you may be glossing over practical details and money can too easily slip through your fingers. You might be especially generous, but avoid situations where you get the short end of the stick financially speaking if they lead to feelings of resentment.
