Taurus On Second House Cusp
Taurus in 2nd house – Taurus on the cusp of the second house.
You meet your basic survival and/or comfort needs through your ability to maintain the status quo and create stability and security in your life. Your financial, material and physical security and stability are paramount to you.
It is likely that you are pretty resistant to change, especially when it comes to matter of money and material belongings. You like to keep things the way they are, sometimes even resisting opportunities to increase or expand what you have because even that would be changing what you already have in place. Be aware that you may be missing out on all you can be and have in your life when you don’t allow for changes in your life.
Since Taurus is the natural ruler of the second house, it emphasizes the lessons that the Taurus has to learn. First, of course, is the value that the Taurus must put on life itself. Here the Taurus would be subject to much conflict, torn between the physical world and the spiritual aspects of living. The Taurus must learn the value of self as a spiritualized being functioning in a physical body, and put the proper value on the body and the spirit as a duality of life. The Taurus could emphasize too much materialism in life, and it is the wise use of the material aspect that is so very important for the sign of Taurus on the cusp of the second house.
With Taurus on the cusp of the second house, it is also indicated that much effort would have to be made to achieve a level of spiritual consciousness. The Search for Truth should be a sincere one – not superficial – and should have a broad base of awareness and acceptance of Truth. The Taurus could be very opinionated when it comes to a Search for Truth, and this must be carefully avoided whenever the sign of Taurus is on the cusp of the second house. Truth or the essence of Truth must have tremendous value by the Taurus when it comes to finding the proper philosophy of life and the proper direction in life on a spiritual basis.
The lower octave Taurus, when it comes to materialism, tends to demonstrate his success or his possessions as an example of how successful he is as an individual. It isn’t so much a matter of the beauty of things or possessions, but rather how much these things reflect his success. This is one of the conceited aspects of the Taurus when it comes to money or possessions.
