Venus is the ruler of the second house, and it signifies possessions, self-worth, money, self-esteem, wealth, and personal values. This house possesses the energy of the Taurus. Hence, it deals with matters of the material world and possessions. These possessions could include clothes, furniture, property, paternal businesses, or wealth. Meanwhile, the values could be family values or personal ones.

If you have an empty second house, it means you do not have Venus or any other planet on the cusp of your second house. It might mean that you were born in a well-off family but lost the right to inheritance as your youth due to mishaps, or your family lost the wealth before you grew young. Consequently, you will not be able to attain the property of your family. Or even if you do, you won’t be able to make much of it.

Is your Second House really empty?

When the second house has no planet at its’ cusp, it definitely has a zodiac sign at its’ cusp. Usually, Taurus is the zodiac ruler of the second house. Taurus is all about wealth, luxury, bubble baths, warm scents, penthouses, candle-lit dinners, and vacations. Also, Taurus goes to any extreme to attain these luxuries in life. Taurus people tend to work hard and extra. Also, Taurus has a habit of adding to their savings account and later on spending it on themselves.

Second House

Also, planets keep shifting, going retrograde, or entering certain houses at certain phases of your life. Perhaps, you could have inherited wealth at the time of your birth due to some planet staying in your empty second house at the time of your birth. It might stay there for a few months, days, or even years. However, as soon as it moves out from your empty second house, you might lose all the inherited wealth or fortune. Not only this, but if some planet enters your second house later in life, you might be married to or come into a relationship with a rich partner and have a share in their wealth or business. However, if the guest planet is malefic, your efforts to gain wealth or rich family life might go in vain.

Hence, you shall not worry if your second house is empty and you have lost your family’s wealth or were not given the right to inheritance. You can still attain wealth at a later age.
