Lagna in Scorpio 26°02'21"
Scorpio in the Ascendant bestows physical beauty and attractive legs and thighs. Vindictive by nature and sensitive to criticism, you can be very alert and quarrelsome. You seem to take special delight in verbally abusing your friends. Ordinarily, you are lucky in marriage, but your sex life remains undisciplined. Your children could be famous and your friends are eminent, but you are unable to establish an enduring relationship with them. You are ignorant of your own long term interests. Immediate gratification is more important to you than permanent gain. Your life in general tends to be a bag of mixed achievement and frustration. Your health may suffer from abuse and irregularity of habit. Secrecy in your life is a very significant issue: Secret alliances, secret pangs and sufferings, secret hiding places, secret enemies, secret friends and secret undertakings. Drug addiction, smuggling, litigation and participation in cruel deeds are not uncommon under this sign. In many ways you are your own worst enemy. You may have fleshy and broad limbs, (as though) perfected by exercising, be clever, crooked in innate disposition, valorous, attached to your mother, generous, will have majestic and tawny eyes, a prominent chest, a sunken belly, a depressed nose, are adventurous, firm, fierce, trustworthy, amusing, troubled by bilious complaints, have a big family, betray your elders and friends, serve a great leader, have enemies, be pious, will give money to others, possess an amiable spouse, be religious, affectionate and base.

You may not be able to keep a confidence, and may tell everything, even your own problems without discrimination, which may affect your sleep. You may appear hot tempered and obstinate. Due to this temperament you may face difficulties and obstacles. You may not accept the advice given by others. Your tendency to act solely on the idea of principle may lead you into trouble. Be cautious of your hot temper as you may end up hurting those that have helped you. There may be no closeness with your family.

As per classic Vedic scriptures, these persons tend to be a little too much straightforward. Moreover, they struggle to learn and acquire new skills. Some speech disorder such as stammering is also likely to natives having Sun in 2nd house.

You want to be sincere in all the work you undertake. Neither can you be a party to any illegal activities nor have the power of tolerance to see such activities. This condition of your mind may drag you into several complications in life, but you are ready to face such problems. You do not like to get any benefit at the cost of others. You may have several hidden enemies. Hence, such enemies stand as a main obstacle in your progress. However, you are able to subdue such enemies and attain much success in all the work you undertake. You enjoy power. You give preference to position and authority rather than money.

You pursue a righteous path of progress and may devote your valuable time for such a cause. Even though you are able and intelligent you cannot necessarily reach the place of your dreams.

You will attain the requisite position only after your 45th year of age. While you do not want others' money you may be frequently in trouble in the financial matters because of others.

You suffer separation from your mother, siblings may turn against you even when you are helpful to them, and you may not receive your due in your profession.

Since society in general favors the external forms of behavior and the recognition of traditional values, you may find most social interactions to be based on hypocrisy despite any spiritual contradictions between the hidden and the visible.
