Mars in the 12th house 

 Mars symbolizes an active principle in a person, which prompts him to intervene in external events and transform reality in accordance with his desires. The 12th house does not allow the full potential of this planet to unfold. The meaning of the 12th house is solitude, self-restraint and escape from the exciting events of the outside world. In this regard, it is difficult for the owner of the horoscope to realize his initiatives and get what he wants. He seems to lack the energy to carry out his plans. The subject rarely acts contrary to fate. Read more

 MARS IN THE TWELFTH HOUSE when well-aspected may bring the person benefit from things denoted by this house, prisons, hospitals and charitable institutions if employed in an official capacity as warden or surgeon; or as administrator of an estate or in detective work. But if Mars is afflicted in the Twelfth House the person is liable to trouble, sorrow and self-undoing all through life. 

He will incur the enmity of other people and may be confined in prison or an insane asylum. If Cancer or Pisces is on the cusp of the Twelfth House Mars will lead him to drunkenness and dissipation. If Scorpio is on the cusp the vitality will be sapped through sex or self-abuse. In any case Mars afflicted in the Twelfth House makes a social outcast unless there are other redeeming features in the figure.

With Mars in the Twelfth House you are likely to exert your energy and initiative in secret or secluded work or some form of social or humanitarian activities. You have an inherent sympathy for, and empathy with, other people and a desire to work for the good of others.

Your refined and sensitive nature is well-suited to artistic, creative and imaginative endeavour - such as religious and spiritual work, music, romantic literature or cultural projects. Energy levels can fluctuate day-to-day, much depends on your emotional state of mind. Frequent periods of quite and solitude are necessary in order to recharge your energies. On occasion you can be devious, escapist, evasive, gloomy, indolent, changeable, irresolute, indecisive and inclined towards self-deception.
