2nd House (Dhana Bhava)

2nd House - Dhana Bhava“Banish unkind words from your lips forever, 
and make your home life safe from trouble. 
Sincere, sweet words are nectar to thirsty souls. 
They are in demand everywhere.”
—Paramhansa Yogananda

Dhana means wealth and the second house represents acquisition and finances. This house can reveal inheritance and acquisition of metals, and gems. The second house also indicates our values; both material and spiritual. Dhana Bhava also shows family relationships and our extended family. The second house reveals past life connections, particularly within the family.

The second house also rules the face, including the chin, mouth, teeth and tongue. It governs what goes into the mouth which means it rules over the quality of the food we eat. The second house also rules what comes out of the mouth, which means it governs our speech and can indicate whether or not we are truthful. Eyesight and vision also belongs to Dhana Bhava.
