If related to the 8th house then money can be blocked, and relation with the 12th house can give losses.
If there are inimical planets, a Greh Yudh, debilitated planets, or malefic planets in the second house, like Rahu and Saturn, then apart from ruined finances and family resources you might consume food or utter such a way, that it will make your life obstructed.
