12th House of a Horoscope – the Treasury of Hidden Talents and Capacities

It will be one day when you merge with the oceanic waves of your dreams and learn to swim. It is a realm of collective dreams of the world. 12th house is dissolving into divine to find enlightenment. And first, a person needs to meet his personal demons and remain standing. Human reality is that sometimes we have to go really down to reach celestial heights.

This house is a room for meditation. Planets in 12th house show our deepest roots of ego that lead to self-destructive motives and shows how to overcome or heal them.

Transits to 12th house can activate hidden potential, bring time for retreats and solitude, or can inspire interest in taking a spiritual journey.

12 house is a key to creative discoveries and new accomplishments.

As you know, modern science owes many of its fundamental discoveries occurring in a dream to the 12th house of horoscope. So in a dream Dmytry Mendeleev saw his periodic table of chemical elements; Carl Gauss found a law of induction; Niels Bohr discovered a model of the atom. Creative people  writers, artists, scientists – find answers to questions that had plagued them, during sleep. Heinrich Schliemann, not being an archaeologist, threw his business, and got engaged in the search for the legendary Troy, the location of which was revealed to him as a result of a series of dreams.

12 in the house fully is realized by Jupiter task to protect. That is, the more a person shows nobility, loyalty, reliability, helpfulness (favorable qualities of Jupiter), the more he is protected and supported.

The polarity is the 6th house. Both lead to self-sacrifice, either in a destructive way or as a path to spiritual ideals. It is suggestive of the Dark Moon phase, a time of retreat and the pursuit of soul resolution.

The 12th house is the mediation room and portal to the enlightenment and wisdom.

The zodiac completes with the twelfth and final house, which rules endings. It covers final stages of a project, tying up loose ends, completions, the afterlife, old age, and surrender. It’s also associated with separation from society, institutions, hospitals, jails, hidden agendas, and secret enemies. And it rules the imagination, creativity, arts, film, dance, poetry, journals, and the subconscious mind. (Ruled by Pisces)


According to Jungian psychotherapy, repressed energy of talents “is packed” into the framework of trauma and distorted perceptions of the world, which are transmitted from generation to generation. It is very easy to manage traumatized society.

Some contemporary scholars of astro-psychology made a great contribution to the study of the 12th House and found an association between a negative impact of the Twelfth House and children’s fears and latent traumas. That is why the 12th House traditionally associated with fears and perverse dependency.

To channel the energy of 12 house in the right direction a person needs learn about his hidden talents, and to seek contact with them. Ask the question: why am I here, what I want really, whether I like what I’m doing?

12th house conceals a colossal amount of useful information, but it not as simple to discover it. A person thinks it is complicated, and he feels very lonely and thinks no one can help him.

In fact, not all the events that come to life through 12th house are destructive and negative! The fact that a need to hide friendship or love from the public eyes or just strangers is a strong proof of the seriousness of relationship and strong feelings. That is certainly a very positive factor. Having a secret helps in various situations, such as conflicts, always weighty and always helpful.

12 House in the horoscope also has a sacred value for each planet which can be both destructive force and a true revelation.

Usually, planets in the twelfth house we find in people who work with foreigners or those who achieve success abroad – including politicians and diplomats.

Any planet located inside will give at least some psychic ability, even if it is uncontrolled and not frequent in manifestation.

Distorted Essence of the Planets in the 12th House

If a planet falls into the 12 house, it makes it very difficult to manifest, because 12th House is full of constraints and lack of understanding. A planet needs to express itself, because energy of a planet is not going anywhere. This can create a conflict within a person.

Energy of 12th house is directed into the house, into self-destruction, which could then lead to severe forms of addiction and inexplicable craving for strange lifestyle.

If the Sun is in the 12th house, it will be difficult for a person to openly manifest in this world, so he will assert his personality and try to achieve the desired through intrigues, squabbles and dirty tricks. This placement denotes a private drive for self-perfection. You are one who will seldom receive full recognition for your efforts and accomplishments, but you easily accept roles of relative obscurity. You are somewhat introverted and love the peace and solitude such a situation often affords.

The moon being in the 12th house, will not allow a person to open up and to be manifested. For example, 28-year-old girl who has Moon in her 12th house, never met a men, never thought about marriage and never wanted to have children.

The position of Mercury in the 12th house is detrimental to writer’s gift. In this case, a person disregards his abilities; he tormented by doubts; he feels that he will be misunderstood; he thinks he does not have enough knowledge and skills to become a writer. – Mercury hides their intelligence, or is inordinately proud of it and can’t let anyone know.

If Venus is in the 12th house, a person may reject marriage and family relations. In this case,  a person can be unfaithful in the relations and lead a secret double life. But if a person grows spiritually, then Venus would wake up his over her unique artistic talent.

Mars in the 12th house reveals the consequences of childhood psychological traumas. If a child was constantly suppressed aggression, not taught to fend for himself, he could grow up emotionally frustrated. Mars—you guessed it. This one is never angry.

Jupiter in the 12th house will deny concealed talent of a teacher and will crush his or her aspirations to travel. A person would assume that he does not enough knowledge, so it is better not to take any action because a person is afraid to look ridiculous.

Pluto in the 12th house keeps a person at the marginal level, but does not let him completely overcome crisis. Crafted 12-person house allows a person to become a test pilot or a stuntman, or even a brilliant doctor, able to save lives of many people.
