Have you ever wondered why a person does not act like their Sun sign? Your zodiac sign personality is more than a Sun sign!

You have ten planets that influence your personality traits, and the second most influential is your Moon. The Moon represents your inner thoughts, wishes, and dreams, everything that makes you who you are. For example, your past experiences (good and bad) are ruled by the Moon.


In addition to what zodiac sign the Moon is in, there's also a house sign.

Together, the Moon, the zodiac sign, and the astrology house influence your overall zodiac sign personality.

Moon in 2nd house meaning

The second house is ruled by Venus, the planet that rules Taurus and Libra.

Venus is about love, but she's also all about our finances, material items, family, and what we value. It primarily deals with wanting security and possessions. Anything to do with material things we crave or want is housed under the second house.

People with the Moon in the second house won't feel emotionally secure until their finances are stable.


Sometimes, the Moon in the second house indicates a change in wealth and financial situation; this can be good or bad depending on the situation and can just easily mean losing material things or money as it does gaining more.

1. Caring

People with the Moon in their second house generally care for those around them both physically and financially.


They like to help those around them if they can and will do anything for their loved ones. They are considered generous with what they have and trustworthy; it is helpful to have them on your side.

2. Insecure

The Moon in the second house can also cause insecurity about money and possessions. People with the Moon in their second house struggle with their desire to have the best of the best and their need to be responsible and save.

They do need constant admiration from those they love and want to feel validated and respected. Their confidence can crumble without the support of those around them.

3. Practical

People with their Moon in the second house tend to struggle to manage and balance their responsible nature with their desire to have the best new thing. However, they are very practical people who rely on logic and reason over emotions, which helps them in their struggles.


They are usually very reserved and keep to themselves. They can appear cold, calculating, and detached to those who do not know them and often struggle with guilt as they battle their two natures, though they bend over backward to help those they love. Family and friends are everything to them (as well as a few of their favorite material things).

They are never the first to bare their soul as their love is more something they show than tell.

4. Materialistic

Some may see them as money-hungry and materialistic, as they go after what they want in the world.
