2-2 Couplet

  • 2-2 Couplet: When a triad is doubled, it is exalted, and the traits are emphasized or magnified.  In this case, the focus upon quality and durability is emphasized.  ‘Quality’ directly relates to ‘right & wrong’, a trait of the planet Venus which also empowers the 7th Triad along with its trait of seeking perfection and justice.  The 2nd Triad also represents ‘earning money’, so income is from a 2nd Triad field – teller, cashier, loan officer, mint employee, furniture manufacturing, etc.

DHARMA: The focus upon quality, value, and durability of material goods is emphasized – effectively, this person wants ‘the best of the best’.  Adjunct to this, 2nd Triad people are very stable and reliable.  They tend to have a good handle on what is best both in terms of things and of ideas.

KARMA: First and foremost, the 2-2 says ‘love of money’ which is ultimately futile.  Material goods and money do not transcend physical death; they are all left behind.  Another karmic flaw is wallowing in luxury.  The goal of life is not the accumulation of ‘things’.  And holding excessive material goods and money when they could be used to help others is karmic.  Finally, people of the 2nd Triad stubbornly cling to things and ideas even after being worn-out or outmoded.  This makes them resistant to change.  However, change is inevitable.  Resistance is often futile and karmic.

PHRASES: The 2-2 can read as ‘loves love’ or ‘loves being in love’.
