2nd House Cultivation
People fail to realize that the most important plant in life is you. That is what you need to be cultivating. What you need to water with love and care. I wanted to go over some ways that you can cultivate(grow) your self-esteem based on what sign or planet is in your 2nd house. I think all of the tips are great for anyone though so I would read through each if you have the time.
Aries/Scorpio/Mars/Pluto: Take charge. You need to let your mars energy take precedent in some sort of activity. Act as a leader in something you are passionate about. As you lead others you will find yourself becoming more confident in yourself. Your inner self is a battlefield and you must work to be at peace with the chaos.Engaging in physical activities can also help bring confidence into your life(as well as money potentially). Working hard may be a source of increased self-esteem as well.
Taurus/Libra/Venus: With all that love in you, you must give to yourself the love you would give to others. View yourself as a person who you are trying to woo. Pull out all the stops. Treat yourself to compliments and gifts. Do not say words that would cause you to shy away. Would you do that with a significant other? Positive affirmations can work extremely well as well as creating beautiful surroundings.
Gemini/Virgo/Mercury: Venus and Mercury are friends so it’s no wonder that a few of the tips for Venus work for mercury. Make sure to use positive affirmations to uplift yourself. How can you raise your self if you don’t use the gift of your 2nd house? Weigh all your options and think through all possibilities. Treat every day like its Mercury Retrograde in order to cultivate a sense of self-worth that you can stand behind.
Cancer/Moon: Allocate time for self care. Family ties and feelings can play a big part on how you view yourself. Making peace with your family is a good first step for individuals with Moon or Cancer in the 2nd. From there you need to work through your inner emotions. Finding a way to balance your emotions will help you to feel less turbulent when it comes to self-esteem. Even if that means accepting that your self-esteem will rise and fall with the moon. Developing a strong value set is important as well as allowing your home to reflect your values.
Leo/Sun: Your self-worth is tied up with the themes of the 2nd house-Money, Possessions, and Values to name a few. You must determine what your values are and expand from there. A person who stands for nothing will fall for anything. As a Leo you need to find a cause to stand behind in order to shine from within. From there you can determine what needs to stay and what needs to go in your life. Remember that you are not your possessions. Your confidence needs to come from within.
Sagittarius/Jupiter: Enjoy the abundance that is within you and realize that all you need is whats provided. You don’t have to have more and more. When you are optimistic and jolly is when you will feel most confident. Cultivate a positive outlook on life.
Capricorn/Saturn: It may be a slow process of learning to value yourself, but a time will come when you will create a sense of self-worth that is unshakeable. It may be a matter of faking it till you make it. Saturn looks for something true and lasting, but ‘fake it till you make it’ is a great strategy in the meantime. Make sure you feel secure by potentially looking into hobbies that will. Working hard may be a source of increased self-esteem as well.
Aquarius/Uranus: You need to cultivate a lifestyle that appeals to your nature. Don’t worry too much about what other people think is the right way of doing things. Connect with those who love you and surround yourself with people who have your best interests at heart.
Pisces/Neptune: Calmness of the mind is important to aspire to. Remember that Neptune is a shadowy curtain, hoping to veil your importance from your eyes. Meditation and indulging in mentally creative pursuits may be the best form of action.
