BUt....I'm an astrologer and I've learned thru time that delving into the 12th and getting to know it and not be afraid of the truth in it is vital to my life. Gibran says, and this is paraphrase: you can't give another your wisdom. Everyone has to find his own truth. and in order to do that you have to delve into some dark and secret places.

MY experience is that most people just don'twant to do this....most people today want some sort of instant wisdom and immediate epiphany....something totally impossible unless they're having unique multiple transits that are karmic in nature and lead them to this 'ah ha!' moment of discovery.

So it's just what I have experience with. I'm not arguing the premise.
"MY experience is that most people just don't want to do this....most people today want some sort of instant wisdom and immediate epiphany....something totally impossible unless they're having unique multiple transits that are karmic in nature and lead them to this 'ah ha!' moment of discovery."

This is the thing that I have noticed about people with Sun in 12th - they would far more accept and deal with their secrets by not dealing with them at all. My own take on the 12th is that it is the place where our "make up homework assignments" are at.

Where it is that we have challenge in our lives is where it is that we will also need to seek peace. A lot can be said, too, of where Saturn is in one's chart. I have hidden from Saturn for a long time, but Saturn seems always to find me when I least expect it, which is typically in the familial arena of my life (Cancer in 12th). And family is not always only our blood. Family are those who are closest to us, and they are also the ones who bring us the harshest most important lessons in our lives.

There is a lot going on in my own life right now, make no mistake. There are things that others who are very close to me are experiencing at this time and that I am unable to help them with because I know what they are dealing with is meant. What I cannot get past is my own fear from knowing what it is that they are going through and because of my intuitive abilities, there are times when I am "reading" their energy and "see" ugliness there - such as them becoming abusive, or worse, them becoming abusive with themselves when really, they do not have to do that - it is just what they are taught.

As you stated earlier, we are not taught a whole lot of things, and they are typically things that are very important to our growth as beings in this lifetime. What we are taught, again, as was stated, is to conform. In conformity, I think, because conformity = "incarceration" on some level, a 12th house sun would feel stuck, depending upon the other things in their chart, at first (dependent, I think, on their rising sign and how it would behave in such situations), within their own selves. They might feel like they cannot change a thing about themselves, but, this is not the truth.

Another thing that I have noticed about this sun placement is that these people are very hard on themselves. I find that they will blame outer circumstances, including those who they love the most, for their ills. Then, a bit later, they go into self-destructive mode, begin beating themselves up, and not realizing things are the way that they are because they are "answering" the 12th house energy in accordance to what it is that they have been taught through subconscious messages delivered to them during childhood and into early and middle adolescence.

It is during those times of growth in every manner possible that we are also meant to learn to process these things in the best manner we can. This is also something that we are not taught. We have to learn things on our own before we can utilize those things in the real world.

Just wanted to hop on in and tell you all that I am beginning to get a clue about some very important things in terms of the people who I love the most and the ones who have hurt me the most

Re: 12th House Sun Equals Psychopathy??

The way the 12th house sun makes most sense to me....

The sun is your core sense of identity.
Postive=healthy sense of self.

The 12th, among other things, is the house of "self-undoing."

What gets "undone" in the 12th is one's ego-attachment. Which can be pretty rough on 12th house people, given our society's focus on self-actualization.

Particularly if there is a 6th house (service) focus as well, I think these people do best with an altruistic focus on helping 12th house types of people less fortunate themselves (such as hospital patients,) or aligning with a cause or group of people bigger than the individual.

It is not unusual to find 12th house suns who are leading political figures. I think they succeed by aligning with and to some extent sacrificing their egos to a greater cause or to their constituencies.

This doesn't mean the ego goes away, but it is disciplined to get its rewards through service activities, not through ego-based needs or pride. If their self-sacrifice goes well, they get a lot of positive feedback from others.

Sort of like in the Bible: if you want to save your life (metaphorically) you must be willing to (metaphorically) lose it.
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.
