The Rahu-Ketu axis control on 2nd House/8th House :

Ketu in the 8th house brings a sense of detachment towards transformations in life - as if the person hates anything that happens outside his/her plans. This makes the person looks immatured since Ketu denies the person the innate ability to adapt to any new situation. They simply hate new changes. Ketu is placed 2nd from the 7th house, hence they will get detatched (or rather get denied) from the fruits of the 7th house (legal partnerships, legal marriage, advertising and sales etc.). Such people have this big insecurity that they have never been loved enough and with a Rahu in 2nd, they yearn for a stable family where they get all the family attention. This can make them extremely possessive about their spouses and children. They tend to express extreme dissatisfaction in their sexual life. Albeit, this is not true. Though they keep feeling sexually dissatisfied, in reality, they are satisfied - it’s just that they simply keep thinking like this and ingrain such insecure thoughts into their brains. They express their emotions in an immature fashion.

Ketu in 8th makes the person internally frustrated to such an extent resulting in a complete detachment from everything. They keep harping ‘I want to be alone. I want to be alone. Leave me alone.’ Though they repeat that multiple times, internally they crave for emotional security a lot from their near ones on the inside. This tumult between wanting to be alone on the outside yet craving for love on the inside is called Rahu Ketu axis dance in 2nd and 8th house.
