Mercury in Second House
This position of Mercury gives wit, intelligence and a lot of knowledge to the natives. Those having Mercury in 2nd house use their intellect to accumulate wealth. These natives tend to be articulate speakers because 2nd house is the house of speech and Mercury is also the significator of communication. Such a person tends to be good with money management and use their finances effectively. Their thoughts are usually directed towards financial aspects of life, so money is constantly on their mind.
These naives are good at expressing their ideas through verbal as well as written communication. They usually fit in roles such as travel agent, writer, speaker, lecturer, teacher, finance manager and so on. Such a person has strong values and family ties but when Mercury is retrograde, the person becomes too rigid about their values and defends them. Their perspective of the world becomes too materialistic in that case.
