At the twelfth house, the sky comes to an end, as one has performed his social or professional work in the eleventh. It is described as the house which closes the human cycle of life. They are either the Angels of Light beckoning to the beyond, or they are the dark Guardians of the Threshold, whose memories are shaped by frustrations, denials in life, fears and sins of omission. In the twelfth house we meet the results of our passive acceptance of that which was, or our spiritual rebellion that helped make a new world. We face the karma of society in a subconscious manner, or we face the karma of individuals who fought society for selfish interests, or for the sake of a better world.
The collective power of memories are witnessed in the twelfth house. What is called karma may be so great that it stifles the individual identity of the newborn, or drowns out the rhythm of a new cycle of the man facing the probability of rebirth. This results in the new cycle, becoming no more than a repeat of the last cycle. According to ancient Indian philosophy, the last thought held in death determines the pattern of the future incarnation. One of the stranger characteristics of our linear, Western society is its inability to think in terms of cyclical processes. Such a denial can be traced to a religious decision of the Council of Constantinople in the 5th century A. D. which prohibited the belief in reincarnation and other factors that began the era of the dark ages.
The twelfth house relates to sorrow, disappointment, loss, misfortune, the private hells, anguish, solitude or confinement, hidden fears and worry. It is considered by some as an “evil house”, the house of restrictions and limitations, and detrimental spiritual or psychic conditions of the native. It is related to the sign Pisces. Its placement suggests the best way to deal with one’s ghosts and products of the subconscious. The best way to deal with a shadow is to illuminate it by the use of lights focused upon it from a number of different directions. This process is utilized in past life regression therapy. Ghosts and shadows of the subconscious will vanish when subjected to the light of understanding and compassion.
If this house is unoccupied by planets, the native is generally not consciously confronted with its implications. He does not live in fear and accepts and works within the framework of his destiny. Not everyone in life is confronted with the spiritual issues of the twelfth house. Many indeed pass through life facing the material consequences of their conscious ambitions as revealed by the tenth house. If the twelfth house is occupied, the native has some matters in which to confront and work out as shown by the houses ruled by the occupying planets. The sign on the cusp of the twelfth shows the general tempo of inner spiritual matters in the native’s life. Planets here indicate forms of introversion with emotions that build up until some form of illness manifests. Talking about their feelings through past life regression is the best remedy for twelfth house individuals. They need to learn that harboring envy, jealousy, and hatred invariably brings disease and misfortune. The karmic law applies.

LEO on 12th HOUSE
The sign on the cusp of the twelfth house shows the general tempo of the native’s inner spiritual values and motivations in life. These subconscious values and tendencies support the affairs and people in the native’s life. Leo ruling the twelfth house indicates the native assumes a certain egotistical assumption of the astonishing inner strength upon which to draw when tested. Their self-undoing is hidden pride. They try to conceal what hurts or bothers them.
PLUTO in 12th HOUSE
Pluto in the twelfth house when well aspected indicates that the native may possess psychic abilities. These individuals have an interest in dreams and the occult and other metaphysical subjects. When well aspected it indicates empathy and the capacity to improve the circumstances of the unfortunate. An afflicted Pluto can indicate treacherous secret enemies, nervous problems, and a disturbed psyche due to over-sensitivity. Pluto’s influence also indicates those whose marriage partner may work in private research and development, banking secrecy, or managing public resources. There may also be contact or involvement with criminals or organized crime.
KARMIC LESSON: Regenerate the subconscious mind by bringing its realm to the mind’s eye, i.e. with past life regression. You should find the transcendental truth which has the effect of liberating the self from a morass of confusing emotional problems. Do not allow guilt to gain the upper hand. The key to life is to develop and cultivate definite spiritual attitudes.
