When someone said that it is not God but next to God, he was describing the crux of worldly matters i.e. money. Finance or money is the occupant or lord of the second house, which is also called as succedent house. It means the wealth that is accumulated through efforts or inheritance, gifts and precious possessions etc. govern this house. The second house succeeds the first house and symbolizes the wealth the native is capable of amassing, either through the hard work that he will put in this birth or the affluence that he has received in this birth as a result of the good deeds of the previous birth.

It predicts about the capacity of the individual to earn. The big billionaires and millionaires have generally a very strong second house, along with other propitious houses like fifth, ninth or eleventh. All depends on the lord of the second house and where it is placed. Also, the planets which occupy the second house or which aspect the second house, play crucial role in determining the assets of the native.

Contrarily, if it is ill placed or the malefic planets aspect it, the native has to face lot of hardships in earning wealth and sometimes, in spite of working very hard , the native fails to gain much wealth.
