SATURN IN THE 12TH HOUSE of your yearly Horoscope
Saturn in the 12th house of Solar Return Chart implies the presence of unconscious blockages which must be overcome.Failure to overcome these inhibitions will lead to limitations in what would usually be considered normal activity. The emotions governing these limitations are fear and guilt, and breaking free generally involves much anxiety.
You must face your own fears before you can goon with the maturation process, since presently they prevent you from branching out and taking risks when you should develop greater freedom of movement.
Frequent fear issues include, but are not limited to: fears of not being loved or being rejected; fears of inadequacy with a constant need for reassurance; fears concerning sexual performance or orientation; and fears of losing control or being overpowered.
Many times the fear-producing issue is ill-defined and ill-founded, but supported by self-defeating attitudes, free-floating anxiety, and heightened vulnerability. For these reasons, fears associated with psychic impressions are not unheard of.
Guilt is the other most common unconscious restriction. There may be certain things you will do, or other things you will not do, simply because of the guilt you will feel one way or the other. If you are being controlled by guilt and do not investigate or understand these feelings, you will continue to feel forced to behave in certain ways.
For example, a middle-aged woman who lived with and cared for her elderly mother found she was both tied down and drained by her mother's constant need for care and attention. But she repeatedly refused to seek out a part-time nurse or companion to stay with her mother while she pursued her own interests.
Every time she left her mother with other family members, she would return to find the older woman somewhat disoriented and confused. She would interpret this disorientation as her own fault and feel guilty for leaving. Eventually, she became totally tied down by her mother's unconscious signals for attention.
Saturn in the 12th solar return is the astrological equivalent of a responsibility vacuum cleaner.
There is the tendency to feel responsible, (and subsequently guilty), for everything that goes wrong. You will tend not to delegate authority easily and will try to do every thing yourself, perfectly, all the time. In short, you overcompensate for real or imagined shortcomings. Only by facing your fears and confronting your feelings of guilt can you begin to live a more normal lifestyle.

Saturn in the 12th can also show strong obligations that cannot be avoided, or the need to become responsible for someone less fortunate.

The need to behave in a responsible manner includes the desire to care for someone who is unable to be responsible for him or herself or needs to be saved from a difficult situation. Occasionally, the person you are most concerned about is hospitalized during the year.
The need to care and the need to face a fear are usually intertwined in some way. Sometimes, the person you care most about is the person you feat If so, by giving, you receive; by protecting, you become less vulnerable; by reaching out, you cross the bridge from fear to understanding.
