MERCURY IN THE 12TH HOUSE in your Yearly horoscope
Mercury in the 12th house in Solar Return indicates that you are probably not outspoken this year.
You keep your opinions, thoughts, and feelings to yourself. You also keep secrets. You may be spending more time alone, lost in your own thoughts.This is a time for the development of new ideas and the understanding and organization of what you have already learned. Consequently, you may not be sure of exactly what you want to say or how to say it. Unfortunately, you may not be saying some of the things that need to be said.
This is a good time to be reflective and introspective rather than just withholding.
This can be a very religious or spiritual placement for Mercury. Meditation, quiet reflection and spiritual studies are important and may give you a greater understanding of the Universe and your place within the Universal plan. But the concept of the “big picture” is applicable to all information and not just that which is spiritual in nature. You have accumulated much information in recent years which now needs to be organized into accessible and practical knowledge. Let’s use an analogy as an example.
If you are an astrology student, you spend many years learning astrological techniques. These techniques provide you with different bits of information. At some point, you will need to learn to organize these pieces of information into a chart interpretation. This is the difference between “cook-booking” astrological facts and understanding the individual’s personality by interpreting the whole chart. There is a leap of consciousness described here that transforms separate facts into cohesive knowledge. One is able to see the major themes or "gestalt" of the natal chart.
The review and organization of information are not limited to factual data only. Unconscious impressions, feelings, and intuitive insights will also be important. The 12th house seems to relate to the integration of all forms of existing information, whether on the conscious or unconscious level. If there is a conflict between what you are thinking rationally and what you are feeling emotionally, the integration process may be more difficult, and you will probably experience some anxiety. This lack of continuity may be due to your avoidance of certain issues and feelings in the past. But it can also be caused by inaccurate information you are receiving at the present time. A very negative manifestation is that someone is lying to you or purposely misleading you.
Your task during the year is to resolve any conflicts between feelings and conscious thoughts and become an integrated whole.
If your mind does not have a strong inner or outer focus this year, you could experience mental problems in the form of phobias, compulsions, obsessions, jealousy, and anxiety. Free-floating anxiety, (generalized fear), is the more common difficulty. Those who were counseling candidates before Mercury was placed in the solar return 12th house are not likely to improve on their own this year. If you are already experiencing problems, this is a time for therapy. The emphasis should be on integrating unconscious and conscious energies. Wisely channeled, you can use this time to intelligently evaluate unconscious insights in the light of previously gathered information. Together the two sources, the conscious and the unconscious levels, can provide you with a wealth of information organized into a body of knowledge.
