12th House Re-Set

I prefer writing to reading (mercury in aries = know-it-all, we learn by osmosis) but when ever i DO happen upon a description of the 12th House, it’s usually really annoying.

It’s often described as the “house of self-undoing” like some sort of dreadful shit-hole where we metaphorically crawl off to be completely hopeless and get wasted sort of thing. It’s the same way Neptune & Pisces get some really crap publicity.

I get at least three emails a week from people (usually teenagers) freaking re some awful description  of Neptune/12th House/Pisces planets.

And btw, Neptune IS in Pisces now. So what is there to hate? Us?  The Now? Okay, admittedly nearly everyone i know is either hitting the Blue Devil Hoochie Juice or other Neptunian substances hard OR they’re on a bee pollen & tantric meditation myo-fascial sort of a high. But still out of it half the time.

So i think we will start by re-habbing the 12th House.

I am obviously biassed because PLUTO is about to go into mine. So no way is there going to be any sort of a Pluto-hyped self-undoing situation. What could i do? Date Hades? Start a really bent cult?

No-no-no. The 12th House is good.

So take a look at the sign on the cusp of your 12th House and forgetting everything you have ever been told or thought re the 12th House, let’s just say it is the sector of magical and amazing resources, that you may take a little while to remember how to use. Lets ramp it up and say it’s like your karmic gifts from a past life.

Yes, even though it’s true that 12th house signs/planets are often things we shun at first.

Mine is Capricorn – no planets – so clearly i have a Composed & Capricorn within me, somewhere. Like the New Queen, returning to reclaim her throne. You are allowed to be mythological and Jungian in seeking to understand your 12th!

And yours?

mine is kataka – jupiter/mars conjunct in 12th house. i have moonstone in 12th.
jupiter on cusp 11th-12th. jupiter in 12th explains me: peace and quiet, works to advance groups, charitable and kind. it squares my sun and pluto – yes to being in positions of leadership from young age and unconventional ways forward.

Saturn in Pisces in 12th. Have made mistakes but maybe saturn helped me have some restraint.

My natal Pluto is in the 12th house (Libra). Not sure about “self undoing” but I’ve made some dumb mistakes in my day. They were lessons 🙂

Cappy 12th here too, with Mercury in there all by itself.

Pluto entered my 12th at the beginning of this year following a south node conjunction/north node opposition. So doubly activating the karmic past lifeness.

And a big yes to 12th house planets being things we shun at first! With Merc in the 12th I was a very shy child. I still consider myself reserved but to nowhere near the degree of my early years.

Scorpio occupies my 12th House. I feel like it utilize that Scorp power a lot more than some of the other signs that make up my chart.

Mine has Sag on the Cusp and has my Chart ruler-Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune in it. Maybe I explored unknown lands or frontiers in a past life. Lord knows I love a great escape in this life.

That Olde Devil aka Saturn is transiting my 12th right now. My 12th House is in Libra.
I had some issues with friendships when the Old Devil moved slowly through my 11th house. It wasn’t “fun”, but enlightening.
Curious, what this transit will bring.
Trying to uncover my karmic/mystical gifts.

Me too! Saturn is between Neptune/ conjunction – hoping Jupiter eases when it hits my Asc at 14 Scorpio. My social life is funerals and martial arts tournaments with kids at the moment.Set lots of boundaries when it was on my Moon. Also losing matriarchs every week. Moving up the family hierarchyLOL!

Fabulous, Mystic. I also have an empty Cap 12th house and often wondered what it was good for. Your interp of the inner Queen come to claim Her throne is a good deal better than any of the dreadful incarceration/karmic bondage kind of things I’ve read. All this time I’ve thought, “Really? That’s what I’m doing with my Cap energies? Flushed down the toilet of the house of Lost Causes?”

Good to know there are other options.

Another empty 12th house in Cap here, and I’ve never been quite sure what to make of it either. One of the things I love about this site is that Mystic always seems to explain things in a way that nobody else does. Man, I’m so glad the site is back!

Mine is in Leo. By July the faster planets will be in my 12th house. All I want to do is lounge on a float in a pool with drink in hand soaking up the sun.

Mine is sun, jupiter, mean node and true node all in capricorn in the 12th house. can somebody please give me some insight about this? thank you. no matter how i try to understand reading my chart its like abstract to me

One of my YODs is telling me to embrace the house of the unconscious where I have Saturn and the transpersonal Uranus & Neptune in Cap as well as the North Node at 1 degree Aqua. In desiring to merge with something greater than the Self, and hence transcend the ego, Saturn brings fear that I might lose myself all together. Mars in Gemini propping up the YOD is saying take action to explore and pursue both waking and sleeping dreams. Manifest and communicate (Gem) the unconscious and transpersonal realms to the people (Aqua). I take Capricorn and Saturn opp.… Read more »

I’ve got Neptune in Sag in the 12th. I’ve always thought of it as a horse trying to trudge though deep water, when it wants to run free and travel far. Hmm, how to put a positive spin on that? Maybe there are interesting treasures of hidden knowledge and spiritual insights lurking under Neptune’s waves if only I’d stop trying to “get somewhere” and focus on where I currently am?

how about one of the most beautiful creatures of all – the mer-horse …. ever seen those images of the seaweedy dragons …. ethereal strength xx

I love those seaweedy dragons! Seadragons are so cool, just floating along so effortlessly and incognito no less…which appeals to rest of the Scorpio in my chart. 😀 Thanks for the inspiration Firey!

Same, Lauren, and conjunct Asc. Moon Jupiter all in Sag in a Scorp ruled 12th. I wouldn’t try to stop a horse! And you can’t stem the flow of water. Both need to roam/trickle free. You remember the frothy bit of the waves are called White Horses? There is duality in Pisces and Sagittarius. You can compare the force of a rushing herd of horses with the roar of huge waves racing from sea to shore. Yet sometimes horses are shy and skittish, like fish. Both animals can be really playful, too. Pisces and Sagittarius also both represent different seekers… Read more »

I have my sun (in aries) in 12th house. mars is right on the edge of 11th too.

I am hoping that you are having a lovely time NOT being on the phone/interwebs Mystic. zoning out to a book or bath or digging in the garden. congratulations on getting it sorted.

I’m curious, balancing. How does the Sun in strong Aries express in the hidden 12th?

Funny that you speak of comfort in baths and garden…you’re a Taurus rising?

ahh … i love this house – i have my libran moon subsiding in there – peaceful though, sort of asleep on water is the image i have – it makes sense that my creative arts are the conduits of my emotions – they are crucial – i make art that even i don’t know where it’s coming from but as long as it moves me, and moves others then i am fulfilled, then i can sit back and wonder at what those emotions were? however, this serene mysterious moon also opposes the ariens: merc/mars/venus …. And also, strange bed… Read more »

That’s so beautiful, FireyBovine. I have read a lot about 12th House in the last few weeks, and even the best doesn’t sound as positive as your expression here.

FB, I like your description and confirms my belief about both the 12th house and Pluto—which is: if pple consciously work with the themes of these entities without flinching, then they DO magically rise above most of the crap from these influences. I see it all the time in my friends who do well, seemingly no matter what. It’s because they are confronting whatever issues come up, head on. No hiding. Given that, I would think MM’s prediction re her own experience would be an accurate one.

Oh I’m a 12th House baby, too.

Mystic, don’t worry about Pluto in there. You have experienced and endured so much (it feels like) and have a lot of positive open energy that is really CRYSTAL CLEAR when you direct it. Pluto is POWER. And Cap gives so much elegant dedicated form to its work. Don’t you think this is EXCITING for you, Mystic?

i am so stupidly happy the site is back! Gratitude, gratitude!!!
Not much to say about the 12th, although I am LOVING Neptune in Pisces – BAN LIVE EXPORT!

That was an installation at a GOMA APT a few years ago. You could walk in to it and become quite lost in the White string things, but not before enduring this feeling of the sky encroaching on you as you walked in and they got lower.
Fitting that a post about re-setting the 12th house got re-set.

I felt sick in there, shell. First I had to take off my shoes and stand on a dirty floor. Then, I could smell people’s hair in the strings, and soon i saw a hair. Zoomed out. Waited for friends to finish filthying up in there. Pity, as i could handle the notion of the white white strings all around. SURREALISM COMES ON SATURDAY 11TH JUNE. I will be there zoning in to my world as often as possible, frowning-smiling, as i do. That will be LOVE LOVE LOVE in actual form to me. LOVE is NONCONFORMIST FREAK that expresses… Read more »

I think the surrealism exhibition that was on at the old Qld art gallery many many moons ago was the first big exhibition I saw. I still have the program, and a pair of purple tights with Magritte images all over them.
They prob deserve an outing soon.

Ho HOH oh my YES do bust out those purple tights with Magritte images.

The very thought tickles me pink! Did you wear them much? What did people say and do?

shell

I can’t remember reactions really. I haven’t worn them that many times. Brisbane. I generally get a comment of sorts though. but they are pretty hard to team up outfit wise.
Ive been thinking I need to whip up a shortish black skirt and just go all black, long coat, boots, crazy purple stockings. Defn more suited to Melbourne, now may be their time to shine.

Welcome back Mstic!

12th in Aquarius with Venus and Mercury in conjunction…. thinking about it, I tend to have a knack for understanding, intellectualising and communicating ethereal subjects of spirituality and, what I like to call, esoteric science. Meditation, spiritual growth, all that jazz; it’s a science, and the body is the technology 😉

Venus there? well she’s a quirky minx in Aqua no? and this one hides quirks from most…

first of all, YAY MYSTIC IS BACK!!!!! It was very lonely checking mybookmark every day to find all manner of weird things in place of this site. So happy it’s back! Secondly, I have always been very confused by descriptions of the 12th house, and i have Jupiter there so I wanted a nice meaning to attribute to this. Jupes in Taurus. I think the Aquarius Papers site did a take on it once which (finally) didn’t call it the house of undoing. Jupiter is expansion and 12th house is sort of secrets and mystery so maybe i love secrets… Read more »
