Shani in 2nd house is troublesome in more ways then one. Second house looks after monetary savings, family and speech. Naturally the planet which has words like 'famine', 'poverty' and 'oppression' associated with it isn't the ideal in the 2nd house. But Shani in the second house does fairly good provided there is a friendly rashi. Savings would be less until the second half of life. Unless there are other combinations which strengthen the second house native would have to work very hard to save money. Not only that equation with family members could also suffer.
Shani is "Sthana Shubham Karoti, Drishti Hani Karot". The place where Shani is located give good results whereas the Shani casts a drishti are the places where bad results prevail. Shani in second house casts a drishti (aspects) on 4th house, 8th house and 11th house. 4th house is the house of happiness, mother and education. 8th house is the house of in-laws and also for taxation and secret earnings. 11th house is the house of regular income, friends, social connections and also quick gains. Simply put it your happiness and income would suffer greatly and taxation on your income could kill you. Your equation with mother, in-laws and friends is not great either. Education might see periods of stopage or failures and job stability would be less.
If there are friendly or neutral signs in 2nd house, 4th house and 11th house for natives with Shani in 2nd house then it could be blessing. Shani rewards hard work sooner or later so one with enemy rashis in 4th house, 8th house and 11th house should try and work hard for Shani to notice and give his blessings.
