Pluto in the Twelfth House

When a planet rises in the east it can now be seen—and thus it enters the twelfth house. Just so, our first instances of self-expression that we offer into the world are vulnerable and easily defeated, but the effect of their success or failure on our personality is enormous. Pulling some of our energy back into our self to keep it from being defeated or overwhelmed has two results. If we are aware of what we are doing, it becomes our hidden secret. If this process is unconscious, it becomes a rejected aspect of the self. These secrets or repressed aspects of the self form the classical interpretation of the twelfth house.

But what if the immature energy we put into the world isn’t defeated early on? Then it can become a source of strength and a dominant aspect of our personality, and even signify our career. The twelfth house is thus where we build inner strength to overcome limitations, sorrows and fears, and where the individual adapts to the collective. It signifies self-undoing: where we stand in our own way, where we are not free to let ourselves become and be who we essentially already are. It also represents that which is hidden, karma, limitation, confinement, prison, betrayal, sacrifice, hospitals and institutions, nuns and priests, secrets and secret enemies (who may just be rejected aspects of ourselves), initiation, ultimate understanding, and charity given or received.

Astronomically speaking, the twelfth house is that one-twelfth sector of the local sky just above the eastern horizon (see above picture) occupied by planets during the two hours after they rise.

If well aspected, Pluto in your twelfth house can act like an "exterminating angel", destroying harm that might otherwise befall you. You may be able to find and to summon up deep inner resources when you really need them. If Pluto is poorly aspected here, however, you may have to be on guard against hidden, negative energies (described by the aspects to Pluto, see page 142 in your personalized fine art book, "You and the Universe") at work against you and your plans. In rare instances, you'll have the capacity to tap energy from the collective pool of mankind.

If Pluto is within 10° of the ascendant it is conjunct the first house cusp and much of the above interpretation starts to become weaker. If Pluto is in the twelfth house AND within 4° or 5° of the ascendant, then it is said to be on the "dark side" of the first house, and it influence will be felt in the first as well as in the twelfth house. The closer a twelfth house Pluto is to the ascendant, the more it will be interpreted as though it were in the first house; when less than 3° from the ascendant, a twelfth house Pluto expresses itself primarily—and eventually entirely—in the first house.

This Pluto in the Twelfth House page and much of this 550-page website are excerpted from You and the Universe, a handmade, individualized fine art book on astrology, mythology and astronomy through which the recipient's complete astrological reading is woven.
