Moon in the Twelfth House

When the moon is placed in the twelfth house, you are a person who has a very spiritual nature. Your intuition is strong and you may have an ability to read other people’s emotions which is truly a gift. You keep your emotional nature secret and hidden from others. Still waters run deep with you and you often hide your true intense emotions from yourself. You are a person who must have time alone to withdrawal on your own and spend time away from the hustle and bustle of the world. You benefit by listening to soothing music and by having beautiful art surrounding you. Music is very important to you and brings you comfort in times of stress. You might have artistic talents that you keep hidden because you are afraid that you are not “good enough” to perform them. You are hard on yourself and would benefit from learning how to express your intricate emotions through writing, journaling and recording dreams. Your emotional nature is sensitive and you will suffer from emotional ups and downs in your life. You need peace and harmony in your home and work environment. The natural process of emotions is very fascinating to you and you may feel depressed often. You do not necessarily need medication to treat these subdued feelings, but would benefit by talking about them, writing about them, or sharing your worries with close friends. Sometimes you do not know if it is your own pain or the pain of others that you feel. You attract people who have pain and problems, because you can sometimes be the martyr in relationships with others.

You feel other people’s emotions and suffering. You can absorb that energy within yourself, sometimes draining your own energy. You like to run away and hide, but you have much to give the world. Your spiritual gifts are magnificent and you genuinely care about helping people. You often find yourself drawn into the helping professions caring for the sick, elderly, disabled or with children. Just make sure you take enough time for yourself and your own inner growth and healing. You are born intuitive, perceptive, and compassionate and often experience psychic abilities throughout your life.

The relationship you had with your mother was complex. You might have felt as if you were the “parent” and your mother was the child. You were dependable and felt responsible for your mother figure and tried to make her life better. You may have experienced your mother figure as emotionally vulnerable, weak or unstable and as someone who “needed you to be strong for her”. Your mother may have suffered from depression, sadness or mental illness. She may have also been spiritual and she blessed you with many of her spiritual teachings. This type of parental relationship caused an emotional wound. If you had to take care of your mother, you might not have had your own emotional needs met. You might feel that you had to always rely on yourself, making it hard for you to open up emotionally to others. You may fear being vulnerable, because you know what can happen if you can’t trust others and you don’t want to become like your mother. Even though you have mother figure issues, you often have an unspeakable bond with your mother and are extremely loyal to her regardless of the situation you had with her as a child. You also benefit from your mother and may inherit her spiritual gifts or abilities. She might have been a strong spiritual role model in your life by teaching you what is really important versus what is superficial.
