In order to understand the working of number 2 in a better way, we should first look at the relation of this number with astrology. Number 2 is associated with Moon which is considered as queen among navagraha according to vedic jyotish and accordingly the working and nature of number 2 as explained in numerology is very much under the influence of Moon and this number takes most of its significances from Moon. Vedic jyotish associates Moon with soft, tender and caring nature and all of these characteristics of Moon are exhibited through number 2 in numerology which means that the natives under the strong influence of this number are soft, tender and caring by nature. Number 2 natives have delicate heart as well as delicate egos and they can get hurt very easily and hence care should be taken that no aggression or offensive language or gestures are used while dealing with these natives. The influence of Moon on this number makes these natives very sensitive due to which they can get hurt easily and due to the same influence these natives are very caring towards the others as they know that other people can also get hurt like them and hence they take a soft and caring approach towards the people who they deal with. This quality of number 2 people make them desirable and loved by people as they tend to take care of the needs of people around them and they try to ensure that no one around them is hurt due to something inappropriate done or said by them which earns them respect and love from the people around them. This aspect of number 2 people can be better understood by looking at the motherly nature attributed to Moon by vedic jyotish as Moon is also considered as a planet equivalent to mother among planets. Mothers as we know are all about care and nurture and they do their best to accommodate their children in the best possible ways whether such children are good or bad. The same quality of Moon is relayed though number 2 and accordingly number 2 natives are very good at taking care of people around them just like a mother takes care of her children.
Vedic jyotish relates Sun to the father and Moon to the mother and it also relates Sun to the king and Moon to the queen which means that both of these planets are associated with completely different natures which at times can be exactly opposite to each other and accordingly the behavior of number 1 and 2 is very different from each other and at times, they can be exactly opposite to each other in their behavior and nature. The king and the father needs aggression and anger among other qualities so that he may keep his subjects under discipline and he may punish the ones who commit wrong deeds as he is the one who is supposed to serve justice and maintain order among his subjects. The queen and the mother on the other hand does not have anything to do with these hard and aggressive qualities as her job is to provide love and care to her subjects and children and accordingly such qualities are possessed by Moon and they are further exhibited by number 2 due to influence of Moon on this number. Apart from possessing mother like soft nature, Moon is also associated with creativity on many spheres and these creative abilities of Moon are also displayed though number 2 in numerology which means that the natives under the strong influence of number 2 possess great creative skills and accordingly they can shine in various types of creative spheres.
It should be noted here that though the natives under the influence of number 1 also possess creative abilities like the natives of number 2 but there is a visible difference in how the expressions of these 2 types of natives come out in actual practice due to the reason that Sun and Moon are associated with very different natures according to vedic jyotish and accordingly the reflection of Sun and Moon is seen making difference between number 1 and number 2 type of natives in numerology. In case of number 1 natives, creativity is generally accompanied by an element of aggression and the desire to be at the top due to the influence of Sun which makes these natives somewhat aggressively creative and more expressive whereas in case of number 2 natives the expression of creativity is soft and controlled and it generally has more to do with the inward satisfaction of the native than the outward expression and recognition from the world which is due the influence of Moon on number 2. Hence the creative potential of number 1 natives is more likely directed at receiving a recognition of their talent from the world and reaching new heights with the help of such creativity which means that creativity is a means to achieve recognition, fame and name for these natives whereas in case of number 2 people, it is more about feeling relaxed and expanding themselves by giving expression to their creativity and such natives do not have their primary target as using their creativity to achieve various things in various spheres of their lives. And though material gains are obtained by both these types of natives, but their primary goals are different as in case of number 1 natives, such gains are primary target and creativity is a means to reach such gains whereas in case of number 2 natives, the primary goal is to feel relaxed and expanded by expressing the creativity, and materialistic gains come as a bonus. This difference in nature and the use of creative abilities by these 2 types of natives is clearly due to the influence of Sun and Moon on these numbers and due to the fact the both Sun and Moon are associated with different kinds of expressions according to vedic jyotish.
Moon is considered as a submissive planet in vedic astrology and accordingly the influence of Moon on number 2 in numerology makes the number 2 natives submissive and follower type of people which means that unlike number 1 people, number 2 people are not willing to lead from the front and they do not demand a position of leadership and authority from where they can control others and such natives are instead happy in following other natives and taking directions from other natives who may be in control of situations. For this reason, number 2 people do not make the best leaders or leaders at all and they are also not the ones who set their paths and trends but they are the ones who are quite happy taking directions and following the already set traditions and trends which is a clear contrast compared to number 1 natives. On a positive note, this quality of number 2 people makes them go along fine with a wide variety of people as they do not demand much from people and instead they treat people with great care and understanding which makes these natives desirable and some of these natives can prove best companions as they do everything in their reach to make their partner happy. Vedic jyotish associates Moon with power and financial prosperity even though the Moon does not actually try hard to achieve it and it gets these things merely by virtue of being the queen of the king Sun. This characteristic of Moon is also passed on to number 2 in numerology due to which the natives under the strong influence of this number are blessed with good amount of financial prosperity, luxuries and comforts and the best thing about these natives is that they generally do not have to work hard to get these things and they come easy to them due to influence of Moon on these natives through number 2.
Talking about some negative characteristics of number 2 people, the natives under the strong influence of number 2 in numerology can be oversensitive and they get hurt very easily due to which it can sometimes be very difficult or impossible for the other person, not to hurt these natives, though these natives have the ability to come out from this situation of being hurt, many times. This oversensitive nature of number 2 people is again due to the influence of Moon on these natives as Moon is considered as the most sensitive planet among navagraha according to vedic jyotish and this quality of Moon is passed on to number 2 natives. The natives of this number also have a tendency to be lazy at times and some of these natives can be very lazy due to which they can be seen inactive for long durations of time and due to such inactivity they can become a victim to excessive weight gain and other physical problems and diseases. This is again due to the fact that Moon being watery planet in vedic jyotish, is slow to act and accordingly it is considered as a lazy planet which does not believe much in physical hard work and the same quality of Moon is reflected through number 2 in numerology. The incapability to be leader and the tendency to follow others most of the times, can sometimes make these natives behave too submissively and some of these natives can be timid or even coward at times which is certainly a negative quality and it can make these natives accept their sufferings which should otherwise not be tolerated. Moon is considered as the most emotional and moody planet among navagraha, according to vedic jyotish and accordingly the influence of Moon on number 2 makes the natives of this number very moody and instable at times and such natives may sometimes simply not be able to reach a firm decision due to their ever changing mind and opinion and these natives are also not good enough in executing a decision taken by them which is again due to the lack of aggression in these natives.
Hence number 2 natives should learn to keep their emotions under control at times and they should also learn to be a bit more active and aggressive which can help them come out of their state of inactivity and laziness and they can achieve better results in many spheres of their lives. Number 2 represents great potentials in numerology due to obvious influence of Moon on this number as Moon is considered as one of the most important and resourceful planets among navagraha according to vedic jyotish and therefore the natives under the strong influence of this number should be well prepared to make the most of this resourceful number which can bless them with good results in many spheres of their lives and that also with comparatively lesser effort.
