Second house synastry
In synastry, house overlays refer to placing one natal chart on top of another and observing which planets from one chart fall into which houses of the other. Experience has shown us that this tells us how one partner (the house person) will "receive" the other partner. It also tells us how the planet person will be activated or engaged by the house person.
Partner A's Sun in partner B's second house
This can be a good sign for financial increase and acquisition of goods, and is particularly helpful for a partnership for business, such as in retail or purchasing. By itself, it neither encourages nor discourages a close relationship between romantic partners. Self esteem may increase for both partners, as well as an increased identification with personal possessions.
Partner A's Moon in partner B's second house
This is a good aspect if partner A is being provided help or services by partner B that involve obtaining items for the home or personal projects, or any other tangible objective for personal pleasure or wealth. By itself, it does not infer an intimate relationship between partners, although it could imply dependency.
Partner A's Mercury in partner B's second house
There is a tendency to talk mostly about mundane matters related to purchases, appearances or material values. This placment might be found between two friends who relate to each other mostly through a shared hobby which they discuss frequently, but never really learn to know each other in a deeper way. It is not considered a good indicator of compatibility in romance.
Partner A's Venus in partner B's second house
Partner A may be rather calculating about partner B, and by itself this placement is not an indicator of friendship or romance. The Venusian qualities of harmony and generous response are motivated by personal gain.
Partner A's Mars in partner B's second house
This placment implies a strong drive on the part of partner A to possess either partner B or some type of material gain which B represents. There is an essential inequality between the two partners, with A assuming the lead.
Partner A's Jupiter in partner B's second house
This is a great placement to have between partners who meet for the purpose of developing a business or project. A is well disposed toward helping B achieve B's objectives and establishing B materially, while B is encouraged to expand their interests and acquisitions under A's influence. Nothing bad can be said about this influence other than a tendency to expand too quickly, so that if consistent effort and responsibility are not put into maintaining the material and personal gains acquired they could be lost just as quickly. By itself it is not a strong indicator of compatibility or romantic interest.
Partner A's Saturn in partner B's second house
This placement implies that A feels and acts in a responsible but perhaps rather aloof or parental manner toward B with respect to material matters. B may trust A and derive benefit from the relationship, but may feel a bit diminished and restricted, as if B must justify every purchase or self adornment.
The transpersonal outer planets operate in a largely unconscious, impulsive manner. Their effect in a relationship is very similar to all people their age. In other words, the first house person can expect this response from all others of the planet person's generation.
Partner A's Uranus in partner B's second house
Uranus bestows excitement and a push for progressive change whereever it falls. In this case partner A represents a break from conformity in some way, due to age, philosophy, lifestyle, or something else which directly affects B's sense of stability and propriety. A is not likely to exhibit much possessiveness or be impressed by either B's wealth or lack thereof. On the other hand, A is also not likely to feel the need to maintain or build on what B owns, while B is likely to feel encouraged to throw everything out and start over.
Partner A's Neptune in partner B's second house
There could be some deception or at least impracticality concerning money matters with this placement. Partner A might initially idolize B only to be disillusioned later, or one partner could deceive the other for their own gain. Neither partner is likely to feel much incentive to build personal wealth in this relationship, either due to a lack of possessiveness or a lack of ambition. It is a bad placement for business partners, but for personal relationships it can bring a refreshing lack of emphasis on material beauty or wealth, as long as other factors guard against dissolution of finances.
Partner A's Pluto in partner B's second house
This placment is like Mars in the second, but more intense and impersonal. Partner A might be extremely inquisitive, rooting through B's things when they aren't looking and generally wanting to know every detail about what they own and how they use it. Barring other factors that balance this out, this relationship will probably be uncomfortable (especially for B), although the extent of the imbalance is not likely to be initially apparent.
