A planet in the 12th house makes for the single hardest placement in the natal chart of a given person. If you see a planet here, know that this person will have a degree of suffering and degree of depth. If the surface seems contradictory, it is just the surface and it is beguiling. This is a serious person with serious struggles. The moon may be one of the hardest planets to have in the 12th because the moon is one of our most personal planets, as it represents our deepest heart. We do not show our moon to many people. We show it to very close friends, children, pets and lovers. Some people are more open than others, but the moon, for everyone, is a deep, interior planet. The 12th house turns planets inward. Picture a child in time- out. Before he can continue playing with the other children, he must turn around. He must pull his face and body away from the wall and resume his role as a student among the other students. The person with moon in the 12th may feel as if his face is,permanently, turned toward the wall. Even the strongest person is afraid of intimacy, due to the natural fear of vulnerability and the potential for rejection,one of the most painful of human experiences. The moon in the 12th placement exacerbates this many,many fold. This person wants to belong and wants to get close to others, as much as anyone. However, they may shrink back because the pain of the journey may make it feel as if it is not worth the struggle, and it is a struggle . The moon represents woman, in general, and the mother, in specific. This person may have had a hard time with his own mother. This placement may make him ,unconsciously, repeat the pattern with his wife. He may marry a woman who treats him poorly. If you see a person with the moon in the 12th house, extend your hand a little bit further. He will thank you for it.
