For employed individuals, Mars in the 2nd house of Solar return usually indicates an income based on commissions or sales.
You are able to hustle for a higher income, and your earnings, at least in part, depend on how actively you focus on making money.
Even if your income is normally based on a fixed hourly rate, you may be involved in an incentive program or contest which rewards you for the amount of work you are able to generate or handle.
⋆ Map of your destiny (past, present, future)
If you are considering self-employment on the side, then this might be a good time to piggyback a new budding career on top of a present full/part-time position.
Your salary is then augmented by the second job.
In some way, the amount of money you earn is at least partially tied to the amount of work you accomplish, and consequently, your income may be affected positively.
If you refuse to put in any extra effort or even maintain your present level of involvement, your earnings might be affected negatively.
Mars in the 2nd is also indicative of individuals who either take a pay cut during the year, or do not charge enough for their services.
Pay cuts are generally self-initiated, though not always. You can opt for a salary decrease if you really desire fewer working hours and more free time.
If your focus is already shifting to other areas, you will not be willing to put extra time and effort into an old routine. Having more freedom gives you more time to work on future goals you are creating and pursuing.
If you are self-employed or directly involved with the future success of your employer’s company, you can accept a pay cut to ensure the future viability of the business and your job. It is possible that both manifestations of Mars, hustling for money and accepting a pay cut, will operate within the same year. For example, if you start your own business, you may leave a steady job with a good salary. Initially, you earn less and have to hustle to establish your business and draw new customers.
Arguments over finances are possible if you are sharing resources with another person.
