USA Chart Comparison: The Twelfth House

The twelfth house of a national chart contains such things as secret enemies of the country; that which goes on behind the scenes in the country; places of confinement such as hospitals, jails, monasteries, and convents; that which is hidden; and the ideals of a country, among other things.  In looking at the twelfth house, I will start with the constitution chart, then look at the Sibly chart.

The Constitution Chart

Scorpio on the Twelfth House Cusp

In the constitution chart, the twelfth house had Scorpio on the cusp, as does the first house.  Since Scorpio is on both the twelfth house and the first house, twelfth house affairs must be dealt with before first house affairs can occur.  For example, we would have to deal with our secret enemies before we could develop an awareness of ourselves.

Scorpio is an intense, secretive, and probing sign.  With Scorpio on the twelfth house cusp, we might approach our secret enemies probingly.  Or, we might express our ideals intensely.  The twelfth house contained only one point of the points that I use, Vulcan (which I, and only I, use as far as I know – see the blog on the second house for more information on Vulcan.).  Pluto, the ruler of Scorpio, was in the third house in Aquarius.

Vulcan in the Twelfth

Vulcan in the twelfth house in Scorpio might indicate that, as a nation, we might make war or peace behind the scenes cruelly.  Or that we might love our courageous ideals.  Or that we might secretively balance our compassion and understanding.

Vulcan was making one aspect of the close aspects that I am using, Mars in the third house in Aquarius was in a waxing square to Vulcan.  Mars in a waxing square to Vulcan might indicate struggling to put down a foundation for interacting powerfully behind the scenes through asserting ourselves in an egalitarian way in the area of our communications.

Pluto Ruling the Twelfth House

Pluto, as ruler of the twelfth house and in the third house and Aquarius, might indicate that we use electrical communications in our approach to secret enemies.  Or, that behind our prisons are unusual ideas.  Or, that our ideals come from radical teachers.

Pluto made no aspects of the close aspects that I am using.  So, there would not be a lot of triggers pushing twelfth house matters under the constitution chart.

The Sibly Chart

Scorpio on the Twelfth House Cusp

In the Sibly chart, Scorpio is on the twelfth house and Sagittarius is on the first house, so the two houses are not linked by sign, like the two are in the constitution chart.  However, possibly, Scorpio was also on the eleventh house cusp.  If so, we would have to make friends and set goals before dealing with our secret enemies and developing our institutions of compassion and understanding.  There were none of the points that I am using in the twelfth house in the Sibly chart.  See the section on the constitution chart in this post for a description of Scorpio on the twelfth house.

Pluto Ruling the Twelfth House

Pluto, the ruler of Scorpio, was in the second house in Capricorn.  With the ruler of the twelfth house in the second house in Capricorn, we might expect to make secret enemies as a result of stingy finances.  Or, we might put people in prison out of strict values.  Or, we might display compassion with serious money.

Pluto was making three aspects of the close aspects that I am using; an opposition to the Part of Fortune in the eighth house in Cancer; a semisquare to the Sagittarius Ascendant; and a sequiquadrate to the Gemini Descendent.  The aspects were covered in the last post and in the post on the second house.  The three aspects are active aspects and would put some energy into the twelfth house.  We might find some conflict between controlling our money and the happiness we take in our joint resources, at the same time as a sense of irritation and frustration with our controlling our money when we consider our appearance and reflections.
