In astrology, there are twelve houses that represent different areas of life. The most spiritual house in the birth chart is the twelfth house. The twelfth house is associated with the astrological sign Pisces and the planet Neptune. Traditionally, it is known as the house of loss, sorrow, suffering, secret enemies and escapism. There are also positive influences that impact people with twelfth-house planets. When planets are placed in the twelfth house the individual has a special mission. The individual will have karmic lessons to learn and balance out. The lessons that need to be learned will depend on which planet is placed in this area of life. Traditionally there are ten planets that astrologers focus on and they are the sun, moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. In my book, “The Mysteries of the Twelfth Astrological House: Fallen Angels” I discuss positive tips for how to navigate twelfth house placements.
There are many positive things about the twelfth astrological house. It is often shrouded in mystery and with secrets. Twelfth house people are individuals who have one or more planets placed this house. Individuals with strong Pisces energy will also resonate with twelfth house experiences. Often misunderstood, the twelfth house is not only a place of sorrow, loss and suffering. But there are also incredibly positive experiences and gifts that twelfth house people possess. It is true that twelfth house people may experience challenges but they make them more resilient and spiritual. Their experiences help them connect to a higher power. Most twelfth house people believe in something greater than themselves. It is impossible to convince them that there is not a spiritual purpose in life. There is a connection between people with twelfth house planets because they share similar spiritual experiences.
Below, I will highlight five positive things about having planets in the twelfth house.
1) Spiritual Gifts
Twelfth house people are born with a variety of spiritual gifts. They have psychic abilities and mystical experiences. From a young age they are very intuitive. They understand what others are feeling and take on their emotions. Extremely sensitive and emotional they want to make the world a better place. Strange and unexplained experiences happen throughout their lives. These intense spiritual experiences make them search for the meaning of life. Extremely empathic they can read people’s minds. Sleep and dreaming are associated with the twelfth house. Dreaming gives them answers to life’s problems. They dream vividly and sometimes they wake up inside their dreams realizing they not really dreaming. They can learn to control their dreams and are interested in dream interpretation. Dreams about future events prepare them for major life changes. Blessed with an inner knowing it’s important for them to trust their gut instincts. Many people with planets in the twelfth house can use their spiritual abilities to help guide others.
Twelfth house people are creative and have many artistic talents. Highly imaginative, they are able to create beautiful things. Writing poetry, playing a musical instrument, painting, drawing, singing or expressing themselves in artistic ways bring happiness. As children, they are open minded and very sensitive to other people and their environment. Born with a vivid imagination, they can visualize things in detail and sometimes see things that other people can’t. They are visual learners and remember faces easily. Many twelfth house people have seen angels, UFOs, ghosts and have experiences with deceased loved ones. Some have clairvoyant visions or flashes of insight that give them answers to life’s complex problems. They are connected to the unconscious and subconscious realms.
Twelfth house people are the most compassionate people on earth. They are born kind and care about the needs of others. Helping other people comes naturally for them but they often feel others don’t reciprocate. Twelfth house people are generous and give time, money and energy to others freely. They are drawn to helping professions such as psychology, counseling, social work, nursing and the medical field. Alleviating other’s suffering helps them feel like they have a higher purpose. It is important they develop boundaries in order to protect themselves. Learning to take care of their own needs first is a lesson. Making self-care a priority helps them balance their body, mind and spirit.
Twelfth house people have a strong need to withdraw from the world and spend time alone. Having private time to read, meditate and contemplate things helps them heal. They are psychic sponges that need time to recuperate their energies. Their empathic abilities can leave them feeling burned out and emotionally weak. It is critical that they have private time to escape in healthy ways. Spending time praying, writing, listening to music and cuddling with their favorite pet brings comfort. They prefer being alone and having solitude. Many avoid social situations and can feel uncomfortable in groups. Being in crowds of people can be overwhelming for them. Toxic and stressful situations make them want to withdraw. Staying home brings comfort and helps them replenish their spiritual energy. Having a special room in their home where they can pursue their hobbies is beneficial.
5) Fallen Angels
Twelfth house people are angels in human form. They feel disconnected from material things and feel like they are living in a dream. Emotional and sensitive they feel overwhelmed by the stress of the physical world. Their desire to serve others and help people who suffer is extraordinary. They give a lot of energy and advice to people who are in pain. Healing souls, they are caretakers to the lost and wounded. People are attracted to twelfth house people’s energy and recognize that they can help them. Many twelfth house people feel like they are adopted or an alien from another world. Since childhood, they always felt different from their family and friends. Their personal experiences were not always validated. Their special abilities were not always supported. If they don’t have a spiritual group of friends, they can feel isolated and lonely. Twelfth house people wander here on earth wondering where they came from. It’s like they fell from heaven and are traveling here from a foreign land. Twelfth house people are meant to be here to serve and help alleviate the pain of the world. They are special because they have spiritual abilities that most people don’t have. When they accept this fact, life gets easier for them. They are able to focus on their soul mission and that involves finding their connection to a higher power.
The twelfth house is the most mystical house in the astrological chart. Learning more about this house can help you understand yourself and others better.
