Re: Confused by the 12th House.

Actually, once you've determined the moment of birth by whatever means, the ascendant point will be identical in all house systems. It may be co-equal with the first house cusp (quadrant and equal house systems) or it may not be (whole signs house system.)

The ascendant degree moves (if I recall correctly) about every 3 minutes, so as long as the birth can be pegged to a couple of minutes, the ascendant degree probably won't change that much. If the birth window of time is longer, it probably won't be a huge deal for most astrological techniques unless the ascendant is right on the cusp

My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world. Jack Layton, "Letter to Canadians"

I thought we went along paths--but it seems there are no paths. The going itself is the path.

And that was my original point.
It makes no sense to quibble about various house cusps when there is such inconsistency in determine the time of birth.
Without a reliable time of birth there is no reliable ascendant
