Twelfth House Preview

The next post in my Houses & people series is going to be the 12th House!

For an early concept of the genre, look no further than Terence McKenna.

“We have to create culture, don’t watch TV, don’t read magazines, don’t even listen to NPR. Create your own roadshow. The nexus of space and time where you are now is the most immediate sector of your universe, and if you’re worrying about Michael Jackson or Bill Clinton or somebody else, then you are disempowered, you’re giving it all away to icons, icons which are maintained by an electronic media so that you want to dress like X or have lips like Y. This is shit-brained, this kind of thinking.

That is all cultural diversion, and what is real is you and your friends and your associations, your highs, your orgasms, your hopes, your plans, your fears. And we are told ‘no’, we’re unimportant, we’re peripheral. ‘Get a degree, get a job, get a this, get a that.’ And then you’re a player, you don’t want to even play in that game. You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that’s being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world.”

See also The Truth About 12th House Transits.

And, if you’re having a twelfth house transit like I am (Saturn, Jupiter, and Pluto), your research list or latest hobbies probably look like my bookmarks, below. Also, in case you did not see, Dan Brown – the DaVinci Code author – has made 3,500 Occult Manuscripts available online.

He has no publicly available birthtime BUT he’s Cancerian (Sun conjunct North Node at Zero Cancer) with Mars, Mercury, and Venus in Gemini. His unexpectedly huge bestseller was published just as Uranus went into Pisces in March 2003. His first book – Angels and Demons – with the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Taurus.  He knows his astro, clearly. I think he’s actually a Ninth House person.

He cops a lot of criticism but I love how his books drew esoteric topics into the mainstream. Nobody wanted to hear my thoughts on pentagrams before Dan. Anyway, here are my current research bookmarks FYI. Thoughts?

New member here, fairly novice in Astrology and just got my Astral DNA like LAST WEEK, dying for all the reports now!! I have Sun 29 Pisces & Mars 16 Pisces in my 12th, currently micro dosing mushrooms everyday and feeling a spiritual warrior/shamanic consultant type vibe overtaking me in the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd and so many black people here in the US. I can’t wait to read this!!!

I’m so thankful to have a teacher like you!!! <3 And yes…I JUST had Mars enter my 12th house, which spans from Pisces to Taurus (my Aries zone is intercepted). It'll be there until next January! I'm trying to take my meditation practice up a notch and resume dream journaling. I also just decided my workouts actually need to be less high intensity and more mellow, for a while.

Love the new looks. Very fresh. Your reading list is like my bedside table and floor. Full of bookmarked tomes. There’s a lot on that list I should have a glance at. I’ve met a number of 12th house suns and I like them. They are usually struggling to find the authenticity in the whole of consciousness. Quite a task but they give it their all. Or they are still struggling with religious dogma which I can never quite understand but each finds their own path.

Yes, just got back to my desktop site and it is wonderful! I have had some vision struggles with the mobile. For example, the Oracle 1 slides across the page so the page has to be reduced to get all of the buttons and the text is small; the Daily Personal Horo date is still late; but all good, it is a work in only the tidying stages and done under a grand and wonderful vision. The personal Dailies are brilliant, if only i could adhere to their sagacity.

I LOVE the new site Mystic!! So yes, I like you have Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn all over my 26 degrees Capricorn Ascendant, all in the 12th. Saturn and Jupiter make the trip 3 times over my ascendant all the while Pluto is just hanging out. I am currently dug deep into a branch of my Scottish Highlander ancestry. As a matter of fact, I just joined the Clan associated with my most recent related Scottish Highlander ancestor! Turns out their ancient highland lands were near the town of Glenshee which is dubbed “Glen of the Fairies” where ancient tales… Read more »

Has my mac changed overnight or is this a different layout? Am never sure if it’s me or you when something changes. Thanx for my now noticing the 12th house transits, Pluto Saturn with Jupiter -Ceres looking as though they were heading that way in Oct ’19 astrodienst printout. While doing mind-altering drugs was reading Alice Bailey’s books (and the Theosophists) eons ago so seems having been doing the 12th all my life, normal i suppose with ascendant and Venus there. Explains why ‘normal’ relationships never did it for me. Perhaps shouldn’t have played Pete Seeger’s ‘Little Boxes’ on repeat?… Read more »

I wish I read this when I was a teenager in an inner city suburb of Melbourne and the roots of a big old grand tree emoted to me. Then the tree was omnipresent and the concrete and suburbia disappeared. And no I wasn’t on anything.

I still remember that moment. It is etched in my mind.

Your moment is still and even more to be treasured, Wish..Star. With a different understanding of clock time and soul time, might i ask if there are regrets clouding your “mabarosi” moment? Sometimes the pain of not being understood, and not fully understanding the significance of your own self in the world feels like regret but is part of our journey. I wonder from reading your thought whether Regret wants to simply protect the pain for our earlier selves, and other beings to whom we may have passed on that pain while imperfectly journeying..? I definitely have such regrets. But… Read more »

My heart melted when I read your reply. Nature was so strong as it was balancing my lack of nature in outer suburbs. Yes I felt weird living in Melbourne in the 80’s as a teenager. Pisces Ascendant was strong against the back drop of materialism and wearing black. And that was a painful contrast. Everything about my nature was suppressed. Taurus Moon. My first interview was as a childcare worker. Everything fell into place for me as it was natural. But I resented it as my Gemini mind found it too simple and stupid. Low pay. So I threw… Read more »

OH I have to add I have been watching Strange Angel the Jack Parsons show! I guess that is more of an 8th house theme than a 12th house theme (and I am having more of an 8th house transit year) but I first read about Jack Parsons on this site and couldn’t believe the story was real. Also I can’t believe he did all this stuff then died at 37, I felt like such a slacker loser when I read that

I enjoyed the first season a lot when the characters were first learning about Thelema and their simultaneous attraction and repulsion relationship when encountering it. But in the second season when they started showing more of the the rituals and stuff it got kind of cringe. It seemed like hollow Halloween props combined with idk a polyamorous party lol. They also modified much of the facts for TV, like there is a character who is important who never existed in real life and a lot of the show has to do with their relationship. I’m only halfway through the second… Read more »

I have moon and Mars in the 12th. But my big stellium is outer planets + Venus in the 8th. Currently have Uranus transiting my 12th house preparing to cross my moon and then cross my ascendant into the 1st.

Just reading the post again, the same quote really got me, Raché. But when i saw your response, i thought how every ancient culture has ceremonies for the dead. Some of them use the bones, literally as in an ossuary, in imagery as in skeletons (i usually have little patience for animated kids’ films but the Mexican tale i accidentally saw twice and kept watching, is super 12th house!). What if what you built to honour it was actually the farewell to that life? What you now know cannot be unknown, ever. So when you birth the new there are… Read more »

Can’t wait for this one – doing my Saturn return in the 12th and my bookmarks look exactly like yours but with a financial/investment twist. Two nights ago I dreamt that I accidentally mailed an ex-lover a printed copy of my browser history. Looked at his chart and it turns out he’s got a ton of planets in the 12th. We had a good laugh about it.

Re: True North -vs- Magnetic 🧲 North… I imagine the infinity symbol which hovers like a halo over our spirit archetypes in Tarot (e.g The Magician in 1; the Holy Spirit angel holding the fiery lion’s jaws in 8) symbolises the path traced by the edges of the Earth pole as it wobbles along while spinning around our Sun ☀️.

Wow, i ran to my previous journal because i know i had drawings of the symbols of tarot, heiroglyphs and planets, which in the drawing process had morphed into something like cartoons or graffiti, and brought onto the page a sense of character, personality, anthropomorphic form of probably me, along with some collected others who interacted in an undercurrent manner at the time. The particular pens i used made the graff form. Anyway, i also discovered i had many 11 juin entries from past years. Haha you can draw those dates interestingly in many ways.

The transits from Capricorn to this house have been edifying. But, if you ask me to explain it all, I loosely quote Rilke: ‘We are alone with the alien thing that has entered into our self, because everything intimate and accustomed is for an instant taken away.
