Astrological Houses: The Secrets of the 12th House

The Secrets of the 12th House

The Mysterious 12th House

The 12th House is mysterious territory in birth charts, and probably the least understood. As you probe its secrets you may strike gold, or possibly, as many politicians and movie stars have learned, find dirty laundry, or both. For people on a path of self discovery, the 12th House is the place to look—a magical starting point to learn about the self.

Explore all 12 houses with Psychic Fiona ext. 5178. What do they reveal about you?

Where New Insights Happen

Pondering your 12th House gives insight into your shadow side and into the ways you shoot yourself in the foot. It is in this part of the birth chart that why we do what we do is explained. Probing this area when the client is ready can promote great change and healing. It is where new insight happens.

Your Rising Sign’s Hidden Agenda

In another way, the 12th House reveals your rising sign’s hidden agenda. If you look at the sign on the cusp of the 12th House, you will find the motives, meaning, and emotional needs of a person. For example, someone with Leo rising may seek applause and attention out of emotional insecurity or a fear of being overlooked, whereas a person with Sagittarius rising who constantly preaches about ethics, morals, and religious duty may in fact see the dark side of the Scorpio nature operating within themselves.

Keeping Secrets 

In the 12th House you keep the secrets you would rather the world didn’t know. If there are no planets in the 12th House, then you probably don’t have many secrets. The negative traits of the sign on that house cusp should be dealt with as life lessons, and those are the things that you would rather people didn’t know. There can be shame attached to matters depicted by the 12th House, and that’s why you would rather not reveal them. These are the secrets you lie to yourself about. In these unconscious urges, emotions, and memories lie the seeds of neurosis that qualified professionals can help unravel. If you have planets in the 12th House, then the closer the planet is to the ascendant, the less of secret it really is. A 12th House planet within 10 degrees of the ascendant is much more apparent to people and the world at large than you believe. You’re probably not fooling anyone but yourself even if they don’t call you out on it. During a transit to the 12th House planet, the secret will come out.

Your Buried Treasure

Secrets can feed addictions like nothing else, and the addictive aspects of the 12th House situation continue to build until emotional rupture begins. As we become aware, we often uncover our own personal buried treasure—our talents, magnificent insight, and other gifts that we were born to share with the world. We all have accumulated insight and wisdom-knowledge deep within us emerging from intuition and life experience that can be called forth and offered to others. The 12th House asks us that we listen to our own truth and act upon it. When polished, buried treasure always shines.

    Ronnie: Uranus in the 12th wakes you up to the things that on some deep level you always knew but could not externalize. Rejoice in the freedom these aspects will be offering. We all have a divine right to know the Truth about who we are. There is freeing power in Truth. Walk in Peace.

    My 12th house is loaded…My Aries Sun sits there as well as Mars @ 29 degrees Pisces 12 house. Rising sign Aries.
    I’m really struggling with it and I’m 82 years old. Uranus has released/uncovered so much and there is so much more i’m working with right now…all the shame…I’ve been in so much shame all my life that it felt normal – I realize that now – I didn’t know I was a Native American – my mother never told me – she denied it all her life. Uranus uncovered that too. I’ve spent all my life trying to uncover myself.

    Why can not these daily horoscopes be made so a person like me can print them out to read over and over again. Speaking to another person may be fine if you can remember what is being said but the written word is much better and lasting to a person like me.

    Am interested in the 12th House as I have never heard of it but am aware that there are 12 houses in horoscopes.

    Thank You
