The Second House: What Belongs to You?
Kats Whispers

Natural Sign: Taurus

Ruling Planet: Venus

Quadrant: 1st (Bottom Left)

House Type: Succedent Substance

Represents: earning potential, money, possessions, self-value, talents

The Second House rules the tangible and material aspects of life. Taurus and Venus (more specifically, the grounded side of Venus) are the sign and planet that govern this house. The Second House centers on what you need to feel comfortable and secure on a physical level. No matter how much of a pain it can be, we need money. We need clothing. We need food. We need to stay warm during the winter and cool down during the summer. We need shelter from rain, snow, and hail. And we all feel the need to possess different things, depending on our personal tastes. The Second House is the house of what we own; it’s the house of what we value.

Money is the most widely known feature of the Second House. Your ways of earning money, your spending habits, and your attitude towards money are indicated by the sign on the Second House cusp, as well as the planets inside the house. With Leo on the Second House cusp, your earning potential is greatest when you express yourself, when you’re being creative, and when you’re a star or main character. With Libra on the Second House cusp, your earning potential is maximized when you’re part of a two-member team, or when you work in industries focusing on justice, high culture, or partnership. Saturn in this house can indicate a miser or penny-pincher; Mars in this house can make someone reckless in spending.

The kinds of possessions you have—and whether you have many or few—can also be seen in the Second House. What kinds of food do you enjoy most? Which colors or color schemes appeal to you? What clothing do you like to wear? What kinds of décor do you find attractive? Questions like these can be answered through the Second House. People with Pisces in the Second House often prefer spiritual or water-themed items, as well as things that are artistic or mystical in nature. Or they may altogether transcend the material and decide to have very little. In contrast, people with Virgo in the Second House prefer functional items, things that have a practical use to them. Jupiter can indicate someone who has (or wants) a lot of things. Uranus there shows a person who takes a liking to the unusual. In addition to objects under one’s possession, the Second House also shows what kind of talents someone can have, whether it’s writing (Gemini), cooking (Taurus), or nursing (Cancer).

Among everything the Second House represents, the most important, by far, is one’s sense of self-value. It’s crucial to look to your Second House to see your tendencies regarding how you feel about yourself. People with Mercury in the Second House measure their self-worth by their intelligence; Venus, by their beauty; Mars, by their strength. People with Capricorn on the Second House feel best when they’re working towards a goal; Aquarius, when they feel they are unique and original; Scorpio, when they feel they’ve gone into depth. You should always remember that no matter which placements you have in your chart, you can work on the downsides of those placements (if you haven’t, already). You can always do what improves your self-value, and you can always pat yourself on the back if you’re not as far as you’d like to be.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
