Influence of the Planets on the Twelfth House
The placement of Mars in the twelfth house makes for dignity of the native and makes the person an estate administrator or an administrator in a public institution. Mars is usually responsible for causing grave trouble through impulse, treachery, loss of repute, from enemies or misplaced reputation. If Mars is an afflicted planet in the twelfth house, it may result in violence, tackling enemies in a fight, and danger of injuries through animals.
The well aspected nature of Venus in the twelfth house contributes to success in occupations which are related with jails, charitable institutions and hospitals or by work in a chemical laboratory. One may benefit by working for obscure professions and will be inclined to investigate the secret arts or practice the study of the occult. If Neptune or Uranus afflicts Venus, the person may have strange love affairs and may end up in a divorce.
The first eight houses of the horoscope indicate ikaloka sukham or the pleasures of the world. The last four houses indicate para loka sadhanam or spiritual welfare. The last four houses are known as the Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha. The twelfth house rules the final emancipation of the individual from the chain of birth and death and his merging with the cosmic soul for divine worship and the state of his future existence. The twelfth house indicates the status of loss and impediments, limitation and restraint, waste and extravagance, expenses outweighing income and deception and drudgery.
The ownership of the sixth, eighth and twelfth houses are termed by ancient astrologers as being dus sthanas which is indicative of evil. No house can be said to be evil or unfortunate unless afflicted and the same can be said for the twelfth house as well. Every house holds its sway over distinct affairs and if afflicted, no one can expect the matters signified by it to be fully manifested. The contrary results are experienced when the native runs the period or sub period of the planet that afflicts the house. Once the period or sub period of the beneficial planets operates, there are no obstacles.
