One of the interesting topics in the field of Astrological science is the influence planets exert on the vocal power of the individual. The existence of such an aspect of astrology can hardly be denied if one makes an effort to observe how a person speaks and makes conversation. The knowledge gleaned help in a two-fold way. The person under observation can utilise this knowledge for further improvements, and the observer can get insights into speaker's style and intention by the virtue of a planet in the horoscope. In social circles, one comes across people who draw long bows at a venture.
The second house from Ascendant rules the powers of speech. The planet situated in this house gives define attributes of verbal idiosyncracies. That planet must be taken in relation to the nature of the sign involved i.e. its place in the zodiac. Combining this data we get to know how the person expresses himself vocally, whether his words please the ear or not.
The Sun, the chief of planets, is the symbol of royalty and high lineage, and governs patterns of superior behaviour. This fiery planet is present mostly in the homes of Aries, Leo or Sagittarius signs. The mighty planet's presence specifically in Aries and Leo zodiac signs is a matter of exaltation. It plays an essential role in elevating the dignity of the person in the house of speech as the subject becomes a man of few but reasonable words. He speaks limited and for a purpose as if the very act of verbal communication is in some way a representative of personal dignity. It is to understand that the gift of speech is common, but the planet, by nature opposes whatever is common to privilege and distinction. Thus, the conversation of a man with the Sun in the house of speech somehow comes to convey the impression of high rank and station.
The Moon stands as the antithesis of the Sun. Nearer to the earth as it is, its hold on the mass of mankind is more intimate and hence in astrology it is supposed to govern the populace. Hence, when posited in the house of speech, the individual’s talk will be such as to ensure popularity in society. As per Western system and its position in the second house implies that verbal expression comes easily to the subject and they are capable of translating mental impressions into verbal expressions. When the second falls in the cardinal signs which make for a freer release of energy, the native gets further developed and the person rarely experiences a dearth of words. But more than anything else the lunar vibrations are a decisive factor for tonality and manner of utterance. In astrology, the Moon stands for the mother and the soft outspokenness takes after the way a loving mother addresses her child.
Mars, the planet of dictatorship, presides over war and bloodshed. Along with the Sun, he becomes raging in nature and makes a fiery triplicity, and particularly in Aries, the Moolatrikona sign. It is believed that no other planet is as impactful as Mars on the house of speech. He bestows with a ‘male-bearded voice’, the husky tones which immediately excite attention. Mars bestows a way of speaking as is direct and forthright, brusque and businesslike. The speech is so one pointed that the party to whom he addresses his remarks seldom fail to grasp the importance. As the planet rules the Warfield and conditions of strife and turbulence, the words as they issue out of the mouth befit circumstances where things have turned topsy-turvy and there is a need for resisting the turmoil. Hence the Martian speech abounds in imperatives. Each word is like a command issued against which there is no parrying.
Mercury is the planet of communication. So, If you have mercury in your second house especially in Libra, Virgo or Gemini it will give you superb communication skills. You can impress others with ease. Because of your excellent communication skill, people generally perceive you as a well-qualified person. The native is rarely at the loss of words. Mercurian talk is a cure of boredom and apathy.
Among other planets, Jupiter stands for the high moral ethics. The planet is for the cause of truth, removing 'darkness' and establishing righteousness among men. Thus, his situation in the house of speech is the best that one could hope for. As the planet represents the evolved ego, the dross of worldliness is removed by the knowledge of divine forces. Knowing that listening is the key to full knowledge and mandatory for communication, he uses ears wisely. This planet grasps most out of public speaking events and lectures. The planet of self-cultivation, Jupiter makes one hold back the self for letting the other party put his best forward. Jupiter planet is associated with yellow sapphire gemstone in gems astrology.
Venus is the planet of artistic talents and a symbol of love and harmony. Considering the planet's inclination towards harmonising, presence of Venus in the house of speech is a boon for the native. The natives of this planet are smooth talkers. The planet along with the moon stands for the other sex, and along with Jupiter rules the Brahmin caste. Independently, Venus is the harbinger of worldly enjoyments. The planet is ideally situated in Pisces and Libra, for the former in exaltation house and for the latter in Mooltrikona. Just as the Martians find themselves in the circumstances of stress and struggle, the Venusians enjoy harmony.
Next to Mars signature on the house of speech, Saturn stands out with bold relief. People born under Saturn are noted for their taciturnity and impressive reservation. It may well be doubted whether they make full use of their vocal powers at all. They speak but little as though they lose force every time they speak and thus the planet's presence in the second appears to have negative implications. This is true enough only up to a point. Saturn is the planet of inhibitions and the faculty of speech appears to be put under pressure. Thus the native, however powerful the planet may be in the horoscope, finds himself inept at giving easy play to the tongue. The planet stands for negativism, a 'no' registers on the lips more easily than a 'yes' and a refusal from the lips sounds like a damning sentence.
