Retrograde Saturn in 2nd House in Leo
When retrograde Saturn is placed in the second house of a horoscope in Leo, Cancer rises in the ascendant. Saturn rules the seventh and eighth house. In general, it is partly benefic and partly malefic here, though the malefic part is higher, in most cases. The concept of various planets exhibiting tendencies to be benefic or malefic on the basis of the houses they rule in a horoscope has been explained in the book ‘Gemstones: Magic or Science?’.
Retrograde Saturn in the second house of horoscope in Leo is malefic in many cases, though it may turn benefic in some cases. It may happen when such Saturn is influenced by one or more benefic planets, and/or an overall benefic horoscope. The concept of a malefic planet turning benefic due to influences of benefic planets has been explained in the book ‘Match Making and Manglik Dosh’.
When benefic in nature, retrograde Saturn in the second house of a horoscope in Leo can bless the native with good results related to marriage, husband, wife, family, wealth, speech, profession, finances, reputation, authority, recognition, fame and several other good results, depending on his/her overall horoscope and running times.
Such retrograde Saturn can render various types of benefits to the native, related to or through his marriage and/or wife. For example, the native may get married to a woman who may be beautiful, rich, a celebrity, an officer in government, a powerful politician, a successful businesswoman, and/or a citizen of a foreign country. The native may witness several benefits due to or through his wife and/or her family members. She may play an important role in various spheres of native’s life, including his professional success. The native may settle in a foreign country on the basis of his marriage, if his overall horoscope and running times are supportive.
Looking at profession, such retrograde Saturn can help the native achieve success as a researcher, analyst, lawyer, astrologer, religious guru, teacher, preacher, consultant, actor, singer, musician, writer, dancer, sportsman, artist, architect, designer, developer, professional dealing in real estate industry, iron, steel, automobile, IT, health, pharma, fitness, media, finance, education, coaching, movie, television, music, sports, travel, food, hotel, airline, telecom, internet industry or some other type of professional, depending on his/her overall horoscope and running times.
Taking an example, suppose retrograde Saturn is placed in the second house of a horoscope in Leo, Jupiter is placed in the sixth house in Sagittarius, benefic exalted Mars is placed in the seventh house in Capricorn with benefic Sun and retrograde Mercury, benefic Rahu is placed in the tenth house in Aries, and Ketu is placed in the fourth house in Libra. Benefic Mars forms Ruchaka Yoga in the seventh house. In this case, the native may start a gym, and he may witness good amount of success, money, recognition and growth with time.
If benefic Moon is placed in the ninth house in Pisces, and benefic Venus is placed in the seventh house in Capricorn with Sun, Mars and Mercury, the equation may become better. In this case, the native may come across very good amount of success, money, recognition and growth through multiple businesses. He may witness expansion of his gym business after his age of 30/35, and it may keep growing. After the age of 35/40, he may invest in many other businesses like hotels, spas and TV channels, and he may witness very good profits. If the finer factors and running times are supportive, the native may own a business empire worth in billions, by his age of 55 or 60.
Such retrograde Saturn can bless the native with authority in government as a police officer, army, air force, naval, revenue, administrative, foreign services officer, judge, doctor, scientist, engineer, politician or some other type of professional.

On the other hand, malefic retrograde Saturn in the second house of a horoscope in Leo can trouble the native with problems related to marriage, husband, wife, family, wealth, speech, health, lifespan, profession, finances, reputation, authority, recognition and several other problems, depending on his/her overall horoscope and running times.
Saturn rules the seventh and eighth house, and it is placed in the second house. If such retrograde Saturn is influenced by malefic planets, and/or an overall malefic horoscope, the native may witness delay/disturbances in marriage, and/or one or more failed marriages. He may have serious differences of opinion with his wife, she may suffer from a long-lasting illness, she may be an alcoholic and/or a drug addict, she may be a criminal, she may not be loyal to him, she may have extramarital affair/affairs, and/or she may die within 10 or 5 years of marriage.
The native may witness delays, financial losses, setback, failures, job loss, unfortunate events, bad reputation and several other problems related to or through his profession. He may also witness various types of problems related to or through his family. For example, the native may be born in a family which may be poor, and/or some of his family members may be alcoholics, drug addicts, criminals and/or they may have some other negative traits. Hence the native may witness several problems in his life, due to bad reputation of his family, and/or bad conducts of some family members. He may also witness various types of health problems, and/or reduction in lifespan.
Taking an example, suppose malefic retrograde Saturn is placed in the second house of a horoscope in Leo. Benefic Sun is placed in the sixth house in Sagittarius, malefic retrograde Mercury is placed in the seventh house in Capricorn with Venus and debilitated Jupiter, malefic Rahu forms Pitra Dosh in the ninth house in Pisces, and malefic Ketu is placed in the third house in Virgo with Moon. In this case, the native may lose his job, many times in his life. His first marriage may fail, and he may settle in his second marriage. He may die before the age of 55 or 50.
If Mars is placed in the eighth house in Aquarius, the equation may become more troublesome. In this case, the native may witness serious problems related to his profession as well as marriage. Under pressure from such problems, he may kill himself between his age of 35 and 45.
