Chiron in 12th House
This shows your deepest wound residing in your psyche. Any placement in the 12th house is a very spiritual one, and those not on a spiritual path will feel 12th house energy in a ‘negative’ way because it is relentless in sending lessons our way until we learn them. This placement shows that you have difficulty opening yourself up to others, yet are extremely empathetic and desire to help those in need and often encourage others to share with you their problems so you can help. You may be fiercely private. You may have special psychic abilities.
You may reject these abilities and deny them to much frustration. Chiron in the 12th will keep throwing difficulties your way in order to teach you lessons in acceptance and seeing the bigger picture. One may feel plagued, but the plague shall end when once simply accepts. Accept yourself, accept others, explore your own spirituality and find a path that suits you and walk it. Compassion is the necessity behind this house, and that means for yourself as well as for others.
Chiron in the 12th House
Individuals with Chiron in the 12th house have grown up having to sense the emotional undercurrents in the home. These people know that what is not said is much more important, from about 6 months old babies can sense emotional undercurrents, as adults we often think we are shielding children and protecting them from issues but children sense these issues. Children know when we are upset and when something is wrong, sensing these things without understanding what is going on is what is stressful for children.
Often the child also puts on an act of unawareness they hide the fact they know something is up and often they bury these fears playing the role of the happy child in order to relieve some of the strain and to bring some much-needed sunshine to the life of others. As adults these individuals are good at sensing other’s pain and are very empathic, they need to learn to protect themselves from those who would manipulate or abuse this quality by learning to erect some barriers. These individuals are very soft-hearted and caring even if they do hide it beneath a gruff exterior sometimes.
It is necessary that they understand the inner strength they had as children to hide their emotions and protect others, but that they must let these emotions go that they suppressed as children, and to do so they must face them and accept them; this may be hard as they may find they have suppressed anger as well as pain but they must accept that it was okay for them to feel anger and it is okay for them to feel it now about the situation they found themselves in.
In accepting all their feelings as valid and giving themselves permission to mourn the loss of childhood innocence they can move on to the present time and understand as adults they are capable of understanding the events behind the emotions and putting into perspective its affects on themselves rationally in ways they can resolve. They may become much better are dealing with events as they do this and gain the confidence to tackle issues head on instead of using avoidance tactics.
