The twelfth house


The twelfth house stands for the withdrawal from the noise of the world. This can be a conscious choice - which is why this house stands for times of recuperation in monasteries or health spas and for meditative, mystical and transcendent experiences - or involuntarily - which is why times spent in orphanages, homes, hospitals or prisons are associated with this horoscope sector, too.

Sleep and the world of dreams also belong to this house and everything that connects humans to other dimensions. The sign on the cusp together with any planet in the twelfth house reveal how a person copes with the more impalpable aspects of life, but also how a person seeks to make contact with whatever it is that will give them a feeling of being at one with other humans and ultimately all of existence.

All kinds of secrets - including secret enemies (as opposed to open enemies which are represented by the Seventh House) are themes associated with the twelfth house.

The twelfth house describes transcendental experiences as opposed to the sixth house which is concerned with the aspects of everyday life.

Here Mars, the ruler of Aries, is the twelfth house's primary ruler[1]
