Sun in Twelfth House
hen someone has his natal Sun in the 12th house, the light of the star will illuminate all that is hidden and may dissolve all possible fears. On the other hand, as the 12th house is ruled by Neptune and the sign of Pisces, the Sun is in a weak placement. This is even more prominent when it is in Cancer, Pisces or Libra; on the contrary, it will preserve most of its powerful traits when in a fire sign. The 12th house is an open gate to the collective subconscious and unconscious. Thus, any planet located inside will give at least some psychic ability, even if it is uncontrolled and not frequent in manifestation. When the Sun is placed here, the case is exactly the opposite. The person will have a strong connection to the deeper realms of consciousness, and this will be frequently strengthened when they spend some time alone. Indeed, the Sun in the 12th house is an indicator of seclusion. Usually, it will make someone a loner and the restriction will be imposed by himself, not by others.
Such people can be rather shy, preferring not to be the center of attention. The Sun in the 12th house can make them secret benefactors; they will frequently help others without trying to take any type of credit for their benevolent actions. Generally, they like being behind the scenes, and if the Sun is ill-aspected it can even project as agoraphobia. They will generally dislike being in large crowds, preferring introspection. If the Sun is placed in a water sign, the native will enjoy spending his lonely time near the sea or a lake, frequently gazing towards the waters as if he is hypnotized. A common pattern appearing for natives with this natal placement is being bullied during their childhood. This is sure to happen if the Sun is aspecting the asteroid Chiron, which can leave some trauma in the child’s soul.
