Astrology today is seen primarily as a method of character analysis and psychological insight. Prediction is dismissed as impossible due the considerable loss of technique. Medieval astrology being before psychology, has no psychology in it.
If you are not using astrology to predict things you are not a true astrologer. Many astrologers prefer to focus on explanation interpreting external events in terms of personal feelings and perceptions. Medieval astrology concentrates on making precise prediction of events, while modern astrology uses the native`s chart to assist in giving them psychological counseling . Traditional techniques focus on objective realities, not on psychological development. This is many miles away from the Sun Sign astrology in newspapers, online, or magazines which is entertainment invented in the early 20th century to sell more newspapers.
In astrology the 2nd House represents Money and if we look at it we should be able to say if money comes easily to you or with hardship, when your finance will be good or bad, will you earn your money by just means or illegal means, etc
But nowadays , in modern astrology the 2nd house is the perception of money , your emotional view of the money, but it doesn’t say anything concrete about the real money. The view is only on the subjective status of money.
