Following on from last week’s episode, the 2nd and 8th houses in the horoscope reveal in further depth the development of self, our possessive natures and the complexities of commitment.
On this part of the journey around the horoscope we learn about the polarities between personal and shared values and how much we invest in others vs how much we are prepared to invest in ourselves.
These houses are associated with wealth and security. They are also about confidence and willingness to develop ones-self through building existing skills, access to other people’s resources, and adorning ourselves and our surroundings with objects which represent value to us. Why? Because you’re worth it!
Currency is symbolic of the energetic essence of trade. Therefore the second and eighth houses represent not only the material aspects of financial exchange, but also the willingness to exchange ‘currency’ for deed, and the essence of promises, commitments and debt, whether financial, energetic or spiritual.
The saying “there’s no such thing as a free lunch” can be applied to this polarity because wherever you receive there’s space for you to give – try as we might, It’s impossible to pour from an empty jug.
Getting a bit deep? Well, this is the place where deep reflection occurs. Whereas the second house is concerned with building self-worth, financial security and our personal value system, the eighth house is more concerned about crystallising connections, exploring the mysteries of the human condition and the destruction of superficiality.
