People with planets in the Second House tend to have overwhelming desires to prove their self worth: they may need to establish themselves as reputable to the rest of society by building big houses, getting degrees, establishing businesses, making millions, etc. Such obsessions with "making something" of themselves will, of course, place great strain on their bodies. For example, they may work 16 hours a day to achieve their goals, in the process neglecting to eat or developing poor eating habits.
After they have established their nest eggs, rich eating habits usually get in the way of health maintenance. Gluttony is not uncommon. These people also tend to consume food that is high in sugar and carbohydrates. Second House people need to realize that earthly monuments will not give them happiness: happiness is the one thing that cannot be bought. They must learn that other people like them for who and what they are, not for what they own, how much they are worth or what clothes they wear. When Second House people learn the real nature of happiness, they place their bodies under less stress and get rest and relaxation every once in a while.
