Retrograde Saturn in 2nd House in Virgo
When retrograde Saturn is placed in the second house of a horoscope in Virgo, Leo rises in the ascendant. Saturn rules the sixth and seventh 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 Virgo 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 Virgo 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 Virgo. Benefic Sun is placed in the eighth house in Pisces with retrograde Mercury, Ketu is placed in the first house in Leo, benefic Rahu is placed in the seventh house in Aquarius, Moon is placed in the eleventh house in Gemini, and benefic retrograde Mars is placed in the third house in Libra. Benefic Sun and Mercury form Budhaditya Yoga in the eighth house. In this case, the native may receive good amount of wealth through inheritance. He may start investment business where he may invest in different types of companies, like the ones dealing in construction, entertainment, media and advertisement. He may witness very good amount of success, money and recognition.
If Jupiter is placed in the ninth house in Aries, and benefic Venus is placed in the seventh house in Aquarius with Rahu, the equation may become better. In this case, the native may come across a lot of success, money, recognition and growth through investment business. He may keep investing in more and more companies, and he may even acquire some of them. If the finer factors and running times are supportive, he may have his net worth in billions, by his age of 45/50.
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 Virgo can trouble the native with problems related to marriage, husband, wife, family, wealth, speech, health, profession, finances, reputation, authority, recognition and several other problems, depending on his/her overall horoscope and running times.
Saturn rules the sixth and seventh 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 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.
Taking an example, suppose malefic retrograde Saturn is placed in the second house of a horoscope in Virgo with malefic exalted Rahu. Malefic exalted Ketu is placed in the eighth house in Pisces with exalted Venus, benefic Sun is placed in the seventh house in Aquarius with Mercury, and retrograde Jupiter is placed in the sixth house in Capricorn. In this case, the native may keep changing jobs till his age of 35/40. He may witness financial losses through profession, and/or he may have to spend money on his family members, due to various reasons. His first marriage may fail, and he may settle in his second marriage.
If debilitated Mars is placed in the twelfth house in Cancer, and malefic exalted Moon is placed in the tenth house in Taurus, the equation may become more troublesome. In this case, the native may not find a permanent profession throughout his life. He may remain jobless at times, and he may earn well at other times. He may witness 2 or 3 failed marriages, and he may settle in his third or fourth marriage. He may have to spend significant amount of money for his family members, especially his siblings, many times in his life.
