Sun in the 12th house

The sun in the Twelfth House is not the best location for a luminary. This house is traditionally considered evil, and the presence of the Sun in it brings limitations and difficulties associated with self-expression and self-realization in the native‚Äôs life. 

The 12th house of the horoscope has to do with secrets and illusions. The owners of the Sun in this house spend a lot of effort to understand their mission and life purpose. Often these natives rely on the will of fate and do what others ask or demand of them. The disadvantage caused by such an arrangement of the luminary is the uncertainty and indecision of these subjects. It often happens that the key decisions in life are made for them by those around them and they just go with the flow. Read more

 This is the signature of the lonely soul who as a recluse shuts himself off from his fellows. It brings with it a danger of conflict with the authorities or an inability to fit in with the family conditions and on account of the ensuing trouble the person goes into voluntary or enforced exile, living his life henceforth a stranger among strangers. Even when such extreme conditions do not prevail, the first third of the life is usually wasted in vain efforts to find a balance and settle down to some life work. 

Like the Sixth House position of the Sun, this also favors work with the sick in hospitals, chemistry and laboratory work, or work with prisoners; it gives a love of the occult and leads to curious lines of research.

 With the Sun in the Twelfth House your energy will mainly be applied to personal and private affairs. This may give you a shy, reserved, introspective disposition. There is a tendency to seek a secluded, peaceful, quiet life-style. The real drive is one of coming to terms with the subconscious mind and achieving mental and emotional well-being. 

Subjects such as mysticism, psychic research and depth psychology will appeal. A desire for useful service to the community may be fulfilled through work in hospitals, churches or institutions of leaning, professions such as psychology, art and literature are other possibilities. At some stage of your life you may have to overcome some form of physiological, social, or psychological crisis.
