Exalted Saturn in Second House
When exalted Saturn is placed in the second house in a horoscope, Virgo rises in the ascendant. Exalted Saturn is benefic in the second house in many cases though it may turn malefic in some cases. This may happen when Saturn is afflicted by malefic planets, such as through conjunction and/or aspects. As the number of malefic planets and the strengths of such planets increase, Saturn may become more malefic.
If exalted Saturn is afflicted by two or more than two malefic planets in the second house, it may turn significantly or highly malefic. Apart from that, the overall theme of horoscope having such exalted Saturn can also turn it malefic in some cases, when such theme is highly malefic. The concept of benefic planets turning malefic due to influences of malefic planets has been explained in Manglik Dosh section of the book ‘Match Making and Manglik Dosh (Revised Edition)’.
Let’s look at some results which may be given by exalted Saturn in the second house when it is benefic. Such benefic exalted Saturn can bless the native with good results related to family, wealth, children, love life, speech, communication, profession, finances, politics, fame, authority and several other good results, depending on his overall horoscope.

Taking another example, suppose benefic exalted Saturn is placed in the second house of a horoscope in Libra. Benefic Mercury is placed in the sixth house in Aquarius, Sun is placed in the seventh house in Pisces, benefic Jupiter is placed in the tenth house in Gemini and Mars is placed in the first house in Virgo. In this case, the native may engage in a scientific field like he may become an engineer or software developer and he may achieve good results through his profession. The native may also engage in a field like astrology, depending on the rest of his horoscope and finer factors.
For instance, suppose benefic Rahu is placed in the sixth house in Aquarius with Mercury, Ketu is placed in the twelfth house in Leo, benefic exalted Venus is placed in the seventh house in Pisces with Sun, and benefic Moon is placed in the eighth house in Aries. In this case, the native may become an astrologer. He may spend many years in study and research related to various aspects of astrology and he may possess good knowledge of astrology. The native may come across very good amount of success, money and recognition as an astrologer, especially after the age of 35. He may write some books on various topics of astrology and he may witness fame through them. The native may also appear on television shows related to the theme of astrology and he may mark his impact through such shows.
Looking at a different variation, suppose the recent placements of Venus, Rahu, Ketu and Moon are annulled. Suppose benefic Rahu is placed in the eighth house in Aries, Ketu is placed in the second house in Libra with Saturn, benefic Venus is placed in the fifth house in Capricorn and benefic Moon is placed in the twelfth house in Leo. In this case, the native may become a software developer or an IT professional and he may come across very good amount of success, money and recognition through his profession. Depending on the finer factors and running times, the native may go abroad on the basis of his profession and he may permanently settle in a foreign country. If the finer factors and running times are supportive, the native may earn millions through his profession.
Apart from these, benefic exalted Saturn in the second house of horoscope can bless the native with several other good results, depending on his overall horoscope.
On the other hand, malefic exalted Saturn in the second house of horoscope can trouble the native with problems related to family, finances, wealth, health, children, love life, reputation and several other problems, depending on his overall horoscope.
Looking at the sphere of health, such malefic exalted Saturn can trouble the native with various types of health issues. In many cases, such health issues may arise due to native’s poor choices related to diet as well as due to consumption of harmful substances. Such placement of Saturn can make the native prone to smoking and he may also consume liquor and/or drugs of various types. Apart from that, the native may eat unhealthy foods and he may also not follow proper dietary routines. It means he may have no fixed times and routines for eating food. He may often eat stale or refrigerated foods instead of eating freshly prepared foods and fresh fruits.
All these choices can take a toll on his health and with the passage of time, the native may start witnessing health problems of various types. Such problems may start aggravating after his age of 35 and they may start doing significant damage after his age of 40. In an extreme case when accompanied by malefic planets and overall malefic horoscope, such malefic Saturn can kill the native on account of a serious health problem before the age of 50 or even before the age of 40.
Taking an example, suppose malefic exalted Saturn is placed in the second house of a horoscope in Libra along with malefic Mars. A combination of Mercury and malefic Sun is placed in the third house in Scorpio, benefic Venus is placed in the fourth house in Sagittarius and Moon is placed in the sixth house in Aquarius. In this case, the native may consume alcohol, tobacco and/or harmful drugs on regular basis. Such substances may affect his health negatively and they may reduce his lifespan. Hence the native may die before the age of 60, by virtue of a serious health problem.
If malefic Rahu is placed in the second house in Libra with Saturn and Mars, malefic Ketu is placed in the eighth house in Aries and Jupiter is placed in the sixth house in Aquarius with Moon, the equation may become worse. The native may consume harmful substances in heavy quantities as well as regularly. Such consumption may trouble the native with serious health issues and he may die before the age of 50, 40 or even before the age of 35, depending on the finer factors and running times. The native may die due to throat cancer, lung cancer, liver failure or some other fatal issue, depending on the finer factors and running times.
Apart from these, malefic exalted Saturn in the second house of horoscope can trouble the native with several other types of problems, depending on his overall horoscope.
