A person with the Sun in the 2nd house of the horoscope feels fulfilled in life through producing something of lasting value. The second house describes our attitude to money, possessions, and sense of security. Furthermore, it represents inner resources and self-worth. The second house is fixed and ruled by the earth element, this part of the chart rules immovable property, stability and grounding. In addition, self-esteem and confidence are often linked to earnings and some people with this solar position work in areas that involve personal finance and property. There is a tendency to accumulate personal possessions, including objects, books, ornaments, collectibles or antiques. Those with the Sun here may also like to be surrounded by things of beauty and quality. According to astrologer, Dane Rudhyar:
Sun in the 2nd house tends to stimulate the production of inner and outer wealth and that ‘having’ may overcome being. On the other hand, the person may become an eminently successful manager of wealth and fulfil his destiny in this way.

The Sun in the second house is possessive of the things that give the highest value. Namely, objects, money, people, and those things may be ‘used’ to give them a sense of identity and security. The Sun here must learn how to use their resources and property constructively, and are developing a strong sense of values. Rather than relying on other people and objects to fill that void, a sense of self-worth comes from developing personal skills, talents and resources.
This person is strong, persistent, and determined to understand what is really sustaining in life. The challenge is not to feel trapped by the earthly world. The Sun in the second house should not depend on others too heavily and the goal should be self-sustainment
They can be generous with money and possessions, but will usually expect some sort of recognition and acknowledgment in return. The impeccable internationally loved singer and actor Maurice Chevalier had the Sun in Virgo in the 2nd: he was born in the slum and died a millionaire. The Twelve Houses
